Finish the story begins with:
“They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods.”
They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods as they had done so for the last two hours.
The cameras slung around her neck, pulled her tendons tight and taut as she tried to keep up with others in the group. This was a wonderful start to their honeymoon Lilian moaned internally to herself.
When James had said they were going on a ‘sort of a safari’ she imagined something slightly more exotic and wonderful, a trip to Africa perhaps, nights under the stars, a roaring fire outside to keep away predators but she got - this.
James beckoned her to come nearer and watch the animals ahead of them, he pointed towards the trees in the distance, as he whispered ‘we’ll follow them into the woods and then stop for lunch.’
I hope there’s a glass wine or two included in the lunch muttered Lilian under her breath, stomping through the hard clumpy bristles of grass.
