Later that evening both women lay in bed feeling absolutely fulfilled. Serene told her sister everything and in turn so did Adrianna.

“I never thought that it would be like that said Serene I feel so much love for Brian my heart is going to burst.’

“Me too with Jackie; he is a wonderful man.”

The good thing is that both men love us said Adrianna; we are very lucky to have found love.

“I know that both men are tied to the farm but is that so bad?

 “No; I wouldn’t have Brian any other way would you?’

“Of Course; I think we could make a life for ourselves here on Wildacre.’

“Don’t be in too much of a hurry Serene; let Brian make the decisions he is a man and if he wants you then he will make the moves.’

“Alright I will remember your words.’

“We had better get to sleep or we won’t be able to please our men if we are too tired.”

Serene giggled again then kissed her sister goodnight.’


Over the coming months the relationships between the two women and the men grew ever stronger they worked hard during the day and they made love at night.

The harvest was again a good one and the profits shot up. “Serene’s Chive Cheddar’ was a popular seller as was the cottage cheese. The telling time came to taste “Adrianna’s Choice Tomatoes’ Serene made a salad with them and also used them in a Bolognese sauce. “ Brian said if we could put that into Jars it would sell like hot cakes.

“Why don’t you build onto the farm Brian said his father. You could start a production line to make tomato Ketchup and Bolognese sauces. Let Jackie and Adrianna run it she could ask Janice to help and Gerry. It will give them an interest and make them a lot of money as well.’

“I like the idea dad there are a lot of tomatoes that get wasted so this would be perfect.’

“Would you like to run your own business Adrianna?’

“Yes,’ I would if Jackie is prepared to help me?’

“Right then I will let you have a word with him; where is he anyway?

“He is working on a new variety of gherkin; they are smaller take less growing time and taste delicious.

“How do you know?’

“We grew some earlier this year they were a little bigger but once we get the size right they will be a good seller too.’

“The capsicums and chillies are doing well under the poly tunnels as well.’

“What about Serene’s Cheeses; they have been a great success too.’

Yes,’ said Brian I plan to expand that for Serene once we are married.’
