Adelaide adjusted to the new house quickly. It helped that Mr. Reese put her immediately at ease with his gentle, hospitable manner. After a few days, Adelaide went to his den.
âCome in,â he called. When he saw who it was, he set down his pen and smiled. âMiss Adelaide. What can I do for you?â
âYou are the one who will be approving or not approving of any young man who wants to court us, correct?â
Mr. Reese nodded. âIf that is acceptable to you.â
âIt is.â She sat down across the desk from him. âDo you mind if I give you my list of expectations in a husband?â
Mr. Reese blinked in surprise. âYou have one?â
âYes, I do.â
âDid the man you wrote to fulfill them?â
Adelaide bit her lip. âNo. I didnât have the list then. This is something I started putting together after I arrived in Cheyenne. When I left my hometown, I just needed to get away and wasnât as worried about it. Now that I can have more of a choiceââ Her voice trailed off.
âI understand. Can I see the list?â
Adelaide stood up and handed him a piece of paper with five things written on it. Mr. Reese read it carefully while Adelaide sat back down. âThis doesnât look too hard to fulfill.â
Adelaide shrugged. âI didnât want to make it too hard and these are the most important things to me.â
Mr. Reese nodded. âIâll make sure no one slips past me without first meeting these.â
âThank you.â She stood up. âDonât go out of your way looking for them, though. Iâm not in a hurry.â
Adelaide nodded. âIâm sure.â
âAll right. Iâll try not to do any matchmaking yet.â
âThank you for everything, Mr. Reese. It takes a special man to allow five young women to live in the same house as him.â
âI always wanted children. This is one way to get them.â
Adelaide smiled. âAnd grandchildren, Iâm sure.â
Mr. Reese chuckled. âProbably.â
Faithâs sister, Naomi, graciously hand painted two beautiful bookmarks for this giveaway. There will be one lucky winner. The bookmarks are made with Adelaide in mind. Arenât they gorgeous?
