From Beacon Beach…
…Certain her cheeks must be flushed and her hair a mess, she suddenly realized she had completely forgotten about her bonnet. It was probably back on the beach, or bobbing up and down on a wave somewhere.
Catching a glimpse of herself in the floor-to-ceiling mirror in the entryway, she gasped.
“Cole…I look a fright.”
He flashed her his boyish grin. “Well…your hair is a wild tangle of curls. Quite fetching, actually.”
“Cole…” she whispered. “What are people going to say?”
“Too late to worry about that now,” he whispered back. “Shhh…I hear voices, people coming down the stairs. I think one of them might be your aunt.”
He was right. Aunt Helen rounded the last turn of the grand stairway leading from the upper floors and when she saw them, her mouth dropped open.
Poppy, bounding down the steps right behind her, stared at them, wide-eyed.
From Mercy’s Way…
Luke didn’t have to be persuaded to go see Shoshone Falls…
Numerous falls converged into one majestic show of nature as they rushed with tremendous force over a rocky cliff into the Snake River.
A refreshing mist of droplets cooled Mercy’s face as she delighted in the thunderous sight. Wrapped up in the moment, she felt insignificant and gloriously alive at the same time. She was startled when Luke touched her arm.
“Isn’t it …,” she started to say. Then she saw they were alone. The others had gone on ahead. Her heart jumped.
“Luke, we –“
“Shhh…” He reached for her and looked deeply into her eyes. His hands were warm, in contrast to the cool spray showering them. She could feel the throbbing of his heart in his palms.
Suddenly, she no longer cared where she was. She no longer heard the roar of the falls. She no longer felt the mist on her face. She no longer saw the glorious loveliness of her surroundings.
She was only aware of the sound of blood pounding in her ears, Luke’s strong hands holding hers, and the desire in his eyes.
