Adrianna was able to get up and walk around four days later; she came and thanked Brian and his father for feeding them and nursing her back to health.
“You won’t be eating raw mushrooms again I hope Brian asked with concern in his voice.’
“No I never realised that mushrooms could cause so much illness.’
“You could have died if we hadn’t got the doctor out. Dr Evans said another fifteen minutes and you would have slipped into a coma with renal failure.’
“I hope that you don’t mind us helping out on the farm; my father had a farm too in Romania.”
“Yes,’ Serene told me; so how long have you been travelling around?’
“Four years since we left Romania and travelled to England.’
“What do you hope to do? You cannot travel alone all your lives. Two beautiful women on the road could fall pray to some nasty folk.’
Just then Jackie turned up for work.
“Hello said Jackie; what have you been hiding from me?’
“This is Adrianna from Romania, she was ill and we kept her here with her younger sister Serene.’
“So you are the big sister then said Jackie laughing.’
This is Jackie by the way Adrianna he is my best friend. We grew up together because my mother and his were best friends.’
“I keep him out of trouble said Jackie as I am the oldest.”
“Only by four years; but may I add that I am the brains of the outfit.’
“Jackie let out a howl of laughter before replying; only in his own mind Adrianna.’
“Where is your sister then?’
“She is over at the house preparing something for dinner tonight; she cooks mamaliga’ a traditional Romanian meal made from polenta with stuffed peppers with minced pork, garlic and herbs for you tonight with a fish soup.’
She also makes some pastries with honey and nuts.
“Well that’s settled then I’m coming for dinner tonight said Jackie what time do you want me to come over Brian.
“Soon as you’ve finished sorting the Organic Fruit and vegetables you can go home, wash up, and change for dinner.’
“See you later then Adrianna.’
“Jackie jumped onto his dune buggy and was gone.’
“He’s pretty sure of himself; you will have to excuse him.’
“Don’t worry I am a big girl and I can handle him.’
Brian finished oiling and cleaning the picking machine that was used for the cabbages.
