Farmer’s Daughter – Crimsons Creative Challenge #30

I struggled with this one. I ended up reading all the other submissions and ditched one idea after another as they had already been done. I resorted to YouTube and landed on the song below so, voilà, my story was totally inspired by it. Might be cliché but hey. Why the hell not?

Thank you, Crispina, for issuing this weekly challenge! In an odd way, I like when I’m stumped and have to search 😉

Farmer’s Daughter

Rodney and Claire parked their shiny new tractor on the edge of the field, grabbed their picnic basket and took to their trail. They spread out their blanket under the huge willow next to the stream.

“I can’t believe we are married, Rod. To think you just came for a summer job, all scrawny and green but willing to work hard.”

“Life is funny that way. To think I was about to up and quit till you showed up. Sometimes I think Bob tried to hide you from me!” he winked.

“Haha! Nah. I was away at boarding school in the city you were escaping from. Guess the Universe had other plans for us.”

“Have I told you how much I love you and your ‘Universe’?”

Claire took his face in her hands and kissed him. She then looked deeply into his eyes. “Think you have enough love for another?”
