Upon seeing the horses and buggies and oddly dressed people, Madison actually believed they’d stepped into a time machine and had been transported back to the 1800s. But Dad popped her bubble by explaining about the Amish people, and how they lived a simple life without modern “conveniences,” including cars or electricity or cell phones or Nintendo. After recovering from the disappointment that it was still the new millennium, Madison had been so captivated by this peculiar culture that she couldn’t help but stare.
Madison made up her mind. ” “Well, you’re not going to Palm Beach, right? ” She hung up, turned off her phone, and tossed it in her bag. She was getting out of here. She had no idea where she was going, but she knew she had to get away—and fast. Her guess was that Garret, who lived only a couple blocks away, might be here any minute. And if he looked at her with those chocolate-brown eyes and started sweet-talking, running his fingers down her arm, she would begin to melt and lose her resolve.
She couldn’t put her finger on it exactly, but deep inside of her she desired something exciting or unusual or interesting to happen. Although she knew that was unlikely, since every day seemed to be almost the same as the one before. She knew she was supposed to practice contentment and give thanks for the goodness in her life—she was supposed to appreciate what God had given her. Sometimes she did, but not today. Perhaps it was spring in the air, or perhaps it was missing Jacob, but Anna was not simply bored and restless, she was discontented.
