Storyline

Maxwell and Fran go shopping for an engagement ring. After having that ring on her finger, being Mrs. Sheffield actually now seems real to Fran. But others make Fran feel that she may not be the most appropriate future Mrs. Sheffield. First, in shopping for a dinner party dress at an exclusive clothing boutique, Fran is snubbed by the sales clerk. And second, at the dinner party itself, the hostess and guests talk about Fran behind her back, a fact she learns from overhearing a conversation between the kitchen staff. Confused, Fran needs to talk to somebody about her mixed feelings. She pours her heart out to a total stranger, a homeless man, in Preston Collier Park. Fran also tells Maxwell of her concerns. But Maxwell doesn't care what anyone else thinks, even if it may be his potential investors, because he loves Fran. In addition, Fran gets validation from her new homeless friend, a bigger validation than she ever imagined. Written by Huggo
