~ Excerpt ~
Amos finally figured out how to be a good fiancé. He’d just skip it.
“I think we’re going to move up the wedding.” His folks would be disappointed to miss their eldest son’s wedding, but the way Sophie leaned into him during their parting last evening, he was confident she wouldn’t oppose the idea.
William stopped the bucket in his hands before a drop splashed into the trough. The momma hog snorted in disapproval, hopefully from the lack of water. “Hadn’t heard Pastor Gable was coming in earlier.”
The wind shifted, and Amos wrinkled his nose. One didn’t have to see the hogs to know they were near. After setting the scrap bucket near the gate, Amos covered a yawn. It wasn’t the anticipation of another milk run that had kept him up. But the lack of sleep was worth it because it earned him a plan. “Thought Sophie and I could travel his way. Save him a trip, or we could head to the nearest town and—”
William raised his brows and emptied the bucket of water. “Now you know plain well Margaret has her heart set on Hilltop celebrating your wedding.”
Momma hog dipped her snout into the water, and air bubbles filled the trough. She lifted her head with a more encouraging expression than William’s. If only Margaret would let Amos and Sophie get a word in to each other during dinner. Discussing flowers and lace and cakes wasn’t particularly helpful in establishing a relationship.
