The Maverick

By: Diana Palmer

“Oh, yes, I took a course in astronomy. I have volumes in my office on…” She stopped. The senator had been in her office. She laughed. “My goodness, he’s observant!”

“My present isn’t bad, either.”

They’d given Harley a new saddle, a very ornate one that he could use while riding in parades. “Somebody must have told them what you were doing for a living while we were on our honeymoon,” she guessed.

“My father is a digger.” He laughed. “I’m sure he asked around.”

“We have to spend time with them,” she told him. “Family is important. Especially, when you don’t have any left.”

“You have uncles,” he reminded her.

“Yes, but they all live far away and we were never close. I’d like very much to have children. And they’ll need a granny and granddaddy, won’t they?”

He reached across the seat and linked her hand into his. “Yes.” He squeezed her fingers. “We’re going to be happy, Alice.”

She leaned her head back and stared at him with utter delight. “We’re going to be very happy, Harley,” she replied. She closed her eyes with a sigh, and smiled. “Very happy.”
