Andrew eye’s rose to meet her steady gaze. She did seem over her husband’s death. Courage swirled in his soul. “I’m glad to hear that.” He glanced at Simon. “Well, we don’t want to keep you. I’m sure you’ve got lots of unpacking left.”
Chantelle wobbled her head, and her large eyes somehow became larger. “Yes, it’ll take me to Christmas to sort out my lot.” She chuckled. “I’m a bit of a hoarder.” She leaned forward, and a waft of rose petals curled under his nose. “But, don’t tell anyone.” Chantelle peeked to the left and the right as if in a stage performance. “We know how small towns like to gossip.” She leaned back and gave a contagious laugh.
This lady had spirit. His curiosity meter bounced to ten. And a widow—he could learn something from this new neighbor. She sure had a warmth about her.
“Boyup’s a caring community.” He placed his hands in his back pocket. “Don’t you worry. Yes, I admit, we know each other’s business, but that’s what makes us all close.”
Chantelle crossed her arms around the basket with a gentle sway side to side. “I hope they’re forgiving, too. Unfortunately, my son can be a handful at times. Teenagers.” She glanced at Simon and blushed. “Sorry. I’m sure you’re a good boy. How old are you?”
His son hoped for one last growth spurt. Chantelle probably thought he was sixteen. He didn’t have much to grow to match Andrew’s five-foot, nine inches.
Simon adjusted his cap. “Twenty.” His voice seemed to have become deeper. Was Simon trying to get his point across—he was a man, not a boy.
Her eyelashes fluttered. “Oh. I can’t wait until Noah is an adult. I’m hoping he’ll settle down by then.”
Andrew glanced at Simon’s flushed cheeks. Time to go.
“It was nice meeting you, Chantelle. We hope to see you on Sunday. If you need anything, we’re just down the road. Don’t hesitate to ask.” Andrew tilted his hat for a good-bye.
The mysterious woman smiled and retreated into her home. Once the door closed, Andrew let out a loud sigh.
Simon’s brows furrowed. “Dad?”
“Yes, son.” They turned and wandered down the timber path.
Simon’s lip twitched. “You’re not . . . you’re not . . . ”
“What?” He matched his son’s confused expression.
“Thinking . . . don’t worry.” He waved his question away. “Let’s get back to the farm. We’ve got a bunch of work to catch up on.”
“That we do.” Andrew stepped onto the gravel driveway, and the spring sun soaked into his shirt. He had a new skip in his step and a boost of motivation. Why? He didn’t know. Go with the flow—that motto seemed to work for him up ‘til now.
