Sarah's Amish Suitors
by Monica Marks
Sarah finds herself in a bind. She is physically attractive to the handsome and dashing Daniel as do all the eligible young women in the community. But Jeremiah has been a loyal and faithful friend. When both young men make their intentions to win her heart known, Sarah has a hard choice to make.
It was becoming difficult for her to concentrate on the sermon despite the constant nudging of her sister.
She could not keep her eyes off the newcomer, as if her head was on a string being pulled in that direction by an unseen hand.
“Stop staring at him!” Ruth scolded quietly. “Everyone can plainly see you gawking!”
Embarrassed, Sarah looked back at the deacon who continued to speak but she found her dark eyes trailing back toward where the men sat.
She may as well ask me to stop breathing, Sarah thought wryly. Daniel Fisher was far too handsome to ignore and she was certain she was not the only one who agreed.
Casually, she looked behind her, trying to hide her gaze through a stray wisp of raven colored hair which had fallen from her long braid but she knew she was fooling no one.
As she had suspected, half a dozen other young women were also casting Daniel their own looks as if willing him to gaze in their direction.
Daniel remained steadfast in his concentration, peering straight ahead as if enraptured with the words spilling from Deacon Suter’s lips.
Even without trying, he is attractive.
“Sarah!” Ruth hissed again. “You are making a fool out of yourself!”
Guilty at being caught again, she retrained her eyes forward but not before Jeremiah caught her eye.
He grinned at her disarmingly and Sarah’s face exploded in a shade of crimson.
She offered him a weak smile in return and jerked her head forward.
Of all the people to catch me staring, she thought, cringing.
