For the Main course Serene had made Mamaliga a polenta with pork cutlets. She had gone out and bought red bell peppers which were cut in half and stuffed with home made liver sausage, garlic, and herbs.
“Wow! Serene this is absolutely delicious said Brian looking into Serene’s eyes.”
“You like my cooking then she laughed.’
“Wait until you taste my pastries.’
Janice asked for the recipe after they had finished.
Brian put on the kettle to make tea as Serene placed a plate of pastries on the table. They were filled with jam and whipped cream then honey brushed on them and flaked almonds. Brian liked them so much he ate two.
Brian poured the tea and everyone sat for a while to digest their meal.
“I think we should all thank serene for a wonderful dinner said Thomas.’
“Here, here, they all cheered.’
“I must go and feed Serge my horse she said.’
“I will carry the water for you Serene; Brian took the black bucket and filled it then headed out the back door.
“Fancy a walk Adrianna asked Jackie?’
“Yes.’ if your mother and Thomas does not mind.’
“Hey you go ahead girl said Thomas we don’t mind at all. It will give your mother and Gerry time to catch up with what’s been going on.’
It was still light as Jackie and Adrianna walked along the country path.
“This so reminds me of my home in Romania; I love the countryside so much.”
“Will you ever return to Romania with Serene?’
“I never say never; maybe one day but for now I say no.”
“Phew that is good; I’ve just found you and I don’t want to lose you Adrianna; I like you a lot and I would like to take you out sometime. I, I, mean if you would like to that is?’
“You don’t have a boyfriend or anything have you?’
“No Jackie I don’t have a boyfriend and you are taking me out now we are walking now are we not.”
“Yes but to a pub or a dance.’
“What is this Pub you talk about?
“It’s a house where you go and have a drink and sometimes you sing together and dance too its fun.’
“Okay when do we go to this Pub?’
“What about Friday night?’
“Can I ask Serene and Brian too?”
“Yes if you like said Brian.
