A New Life

The Rogue Speaks:

I first began this story when the main character discovered a stone wall and an old gate on one side of the meadow. He was anxious to show his young wife what he had discovered, and the two opened the gate and crossed through into another part of the meadow. Several days before, he had found a letter stuck in the wall between two stones.

When we last left the young man, he found a stone sign at the corner of the field, yet another mystery he had discovered since he and his young wife had moved into the farmhouse that had once belonged to his mother and father. Now, the story continues:

As he walked toward the house, he could see that his wife was home early from work.

“Something’s happened,” he said to himself. “She’s never this early! God, I hope the company has'nt closed down! We really need that money until the farm is up and running in the spring!”

His steps quickened, and when he reached the back door, she was standing there.

“She’s so beautiful!” he thought, as he stamped the dirt from his boots. “She makes up for all the trials I have suffered in my life.”

As he crossed the threshold, she took him in her arms. “Surprise! I’m pregnant!”

Jenny really gave us a good prompt for this Saturday's Centus. I hope you will catch up with my story, then go on to read the other offerings! Have a good weekend, everyone, and for those of you on the east coast, STAY DRY!

I was never able to surprise my husband with a pregnancy (we were always "trying" every time I got pg), but I sure would have liked to.

Good job!

Excellent Judie !

This was so sweet, so rich with visual imagery as well as a wonderful continued story...I love it !

BTW, we are fine here, just a little wind, bands of torrential rain and it was sunshine again a few hours later. Thank you so much for worrying about us.
