The Story of Nine Lives of Christmas
Meet Zachary, a firefighter who doesn’t care much for pursuing a relationship or doing much outside of living his own life and working his job as a firefighter. He’s content to live the single life and although he receives a lot of prodding from his firefighter friends to put himself out there and try and find a girl, Zachary doesn’t much see the point. In Nine Lives of Christmas, Zachary is perfectly content to just live his own life and not deal with anyone else. He’s happy on his own, right? Or so he thinks anyway… The firemen inform him that there will come a day when he realizes that he needs a wife in his life and he’s going to find “the one”.
Now, meet Marilee, a girl busy in her own little world, trying to keep up with her studies and her work life. She has so much to occupy her time that looking for a relationship has also been put on the backburner. In the grand scheme of things, she’s chosen to pursue her career over a relationship, and because of this, she has found herself busy, tired, and completely burnt out. Working as a veterinarian, her fellow coworkers encourage her to go out and try and find a man in her life. But Marilee is determined that she’s too busy and doesn’t have time to go try and pursue a relationship. She likes her job, and she’s happy. Right?
As Nine Lives of Christmas continues, Zachary finds himself at home, sitting peacefully on a chair when into his house stumbles an orange tabby cat by the name of Ambrose. Unsure of what to do with a cat, but not quite ready to get rid of it, Zach begins to form an attachment to Ambrose. However, he has no idea how to raise a cat and this is what leads him to meeting Marilee, a veterinarian. And as they begin meeting each other, Zachary begins to take a slight interest. And yet, despite of this, he is determined to not fall in love. He enjoys his single life! However, when Ambrose escapes and Marilee rescues the cat and brings it to Zachary, he says he’ll make it up to her by buying her dinner. And thus begins an exciting and romantic relationship!
And so, the relationship continues with the two of them spending more time with each other. But as they get closer, they find themselves unable to fall in love simply because of the barriers they have put up for themselves. Nine Lives of Christmas spotlights their relationship showing how they want to fall in love, but at the same time, they really don’t want to, as they want to continue living their single lives. Will they be able to overcome these obstacles and truly find love in each other? Or will their own selfish desires drive them apart forever?
When a stray cat adopts Zachary Stone, he falls in love with the little guy in spite of the fact that he wants to stay away from responsibility.
