I met Fionnuala on a Friday the thirteenth in the township of Perth. She was beautiful but it was her smile which reached out to my soul. Then I discovered her last name she was a Shea. The Shea's it said had airs and hated the common folk like farmers and favoured trade. Her family hated me not only because they thought that I had no future but because her brothers had tangled with mine and mine had bested them.
Despite all that we met in secret and fell in love. We spent every moment we could together. Our passion was carried away and we slept together in the barn two weeks ago resulting in the news that
Fionnuala told me two days ago.
“I need you to take a deep breath.” she’d said and then she told me the good news she carried my babe.
Fionnuala and I had decided,we would run away to Toronto, away from Patrick Thoron, the rich brute, her father bade her marry; away from my family who also disapproved . My distant cousin who worked in a factory had offered me a job and a place for us in Toronto where they couldn’t reach us. We were to meet at Grand Bend cliff to run away tonight.
