70 Picture of sailboat against colorful sunset
“I’ve never been sailing,” Marie remarked, staring out into the lake at the sailboat accented against the setting sun.
“Never?” Smurf inquired. “Not once?”
“Nope. My parents aren’t much for spending money, and the only way to take a boat is to pay top dollar. Or so my dad says.”
Smurf rested his chin on his hands, glancing over at her. “You really want to do this?”
Smurf nodded. “Then,” he said, completely sure of himself, “I’ll find a way to make it happen.”
Smiling, Marie leaned against his shoulder and watched the sun dip below the horizon.
