“Elijah?” The little girl asked as she was picking flowers in their garden. “What is it, darling?” he looked at the 6-year-old, the way her brown hair moved in the wind, and how the underside of her dress was dirty of the grass. “How do flowers grow?” She now looked up to him with her brown eyes filled with curiosity. Elijah chuckled. “It’s a combination of rain and sun. and some people believe love,” The girl got up from the ground and held her flowers closely. “Everyone needs love, even flowers,” She said as she grabbed his hand to walk along inside. “That’s right darling, everyone needs love,”

I can’t imagine myself with a boy from town, they are all so, lame,” Abigaill got up from her chair. “Don’t worry about that today, it’s your 17th birthday, be happy,”
