A JOYFUL BREAK, Book 1
Samuel is 23 years old and has a furniture store next to his mother's store, Weaver's Bakery
Katie and Jacob are his younger siblings.
She hurried inside the store and looked around for Samuel. She found him at his desk. “I just have a minute. I asked Aunt Carrie to stop so I could see the picnic table.”
His blue eyes filled with amusement. “You sure it’s the table you want to see.”
“Why else would I be here? I just saw you last night.”
He stood, looking down at her. “I’m glad you’re here, even though it’s to see the table. It’s back of the lawn chairs.”
Following Samuel, she glanced at his rocking chairs and other pieces of furniture he had for sale. “Everything you make turns out so well.”
“I’m glad God blessed me with the furniture business. I wouldn’t want to farm full-time.” He stopped by an oval table. “I made it out of poly-wood so it will last forever with care.”
She saw four benches next to the table. “The table and benches look great. The dark green you used on the legs is nice too. I’m impressed.”
A smile twitched at the corner of his mouth. “I’m glad it meets with your approval.”
“I better go. I don’t want Aunt Carrie to have to wait too long on me. We need to get to the airport in time to get Violet.”
He pulled her into his arms. “How about a quick kiss before you leave?”
“I guess I can spare one.” His kiss tasted of coffee and cinnamon. After kissing for a wunderbaar moment, she said, “You already had your morning coffee. I tasted it on your lips.”
He looked into her eyes. “I hope someday I’ll have my morning coffee with you before I leave for work.”
“I better go.”
“I’ll call you Tuesday evening to see how the road trip’s progressing.” Samuel walked with her to the front door and waved to Aunt Carrie.
“Bye, Samuel.” She gave his hand a squeeze before running to the car.
