It was so peaceful on the lake. The couple paddled in silence, enjoying the quiet morning sounds, breathing in deeply. Their relationship was still in its infancy and they had no idea what lay ahead for them. Life was grand.
They stopped paddling and coasted towards a deserted beach where a natural screen of tall grasses protected them from any potential prying eyes.
