Will spoke. “Speaking of Gran, she left the horses here. Said I could ride anytime. Maybe you’d like to come along sometime?”
“I’d love it,” she said instantly.
“Good. It’s a deal. I bet there’s some beautiful country around here to explore.” He smiled and her lips pulled up too. “It’s been way too long since I’ve been on a horse.”
“Me, too,” Lily said. “We had an old draft mare when I was growing up I used to ride around, and my friends sometimes let me get on their 4-H horses. But I’ve never had one of my own.”
“You’ve been missing out,” he said. “There’s nothing like having a good horse under you with just your thoughts to keep you company.”
“I can imagine.” Why did it sound like they were talking about more than riding horses here? Lily glanced at the pile of covered sculptures in the corner. “We talked about buying a couple a few times, but just never seemed to get around to it.” Now that she thought about it Jeff had made time for his art. Why hadn’t she also pursued things that made her happy and fulfilled?
