When the women returned home they found Randy and Mr. Larson loading up the trailers. "Well sweetheart Randy and I are gonna head on out, but first give your ole man a hug." Jennifer stepped into her father's arms. She felt her father sob, which didn't help because she started to cry too. "You better dang well call us as soon as your plane lands. Do I make myself clear young lady," said her father. Jennifer smiled and assured him that she would do that. After Mr. Larson got into the truck, Randy stepped up. There weren't words shared between Randy and Jennifer. All it took was an embrace and the most tender kiss. Randy hopped into the passenger seat.
Mrs. Larson held on to Jennifer as her daughter wept later that day. "Oh mom why did I ever fall in love with him. This is just so hard." Her mother smiled and handed Jennifer another tissue. "This isn't goodbye sweetheart. I know deep in my heart that you two are meant for one another. Right now it may hurt, but it's not the end. Yall can keep in touch and I'm pretty sure there will other vacations that you can take." Jennifer agreed with her mother. Later in the evening, Jennifer packed her suitcases and looked around her room. After her mother went to bed, Jennifer saddled up Star Dancer. She urged the horse into a full out run all the time tears fell.
"Son it's gonna be alright. I know you are hurting somethin awful, but time passes by fast and I'm pretty sure my daughter will return," Mr. Larson said trying to comfort Randy. All Randy could do was nod for fear of crying. Mr. Larson looked at the young man and said, "You know it's alright to show emotion Randy. Your heart ain't made of stone and I for one don't poke fun at something like that." After awhile Mr. Larson fell silent as he drove. How on earth am I gonna be able to do my work if Jennifer is all I'm thinking about? Well thank the Lord for telephones, because I know dang sure I'm gonna call that woman everyday and every night thought Randy.
