Eleanor and Valentine – Chapter 11

Valentine arrived with a wagon full of equipment. Folks thought he was a tinker and ignored him as he plodded along and finally came to a stop in front of the house he built 15 years earlier.

There were 5 mature apple trees out front, limbs heavy with fruit. Napoleon spoke from the porch. “I give ‘em away to whoever wants them.”

“She’d have liked that.”

“It was her idea. Round here most of the pies come from your trees.”

“It’s settled then. We’ll sell whiskey and give away apples.”
