“I’ll trade you some baked goods enough to last the voyage if you’ll take my boys across, do we have a deal monsieur?”
“I’ll take your offer if it comes with your daughter, the one with eyes like sapphires.”
“Deal” what use was the girl if there was no one to wed her off to.
“Take as much as you can.”
“What about the other guests?.”
“Pfft! We’ll take them the rest, ensuring to gush and exclaim the glorious loving bond we build as we share in love.”
Written for Sonya’s TLT – week twenty.
