"So, what's your name, sweetie?" The guy asked as we drove.

"Anya." I said stiffly, trying not to look at him. So, I guess you've figured out by now that I'm not that used to being away from home. I'd never done anything rebellious before, I had never even been late for curfew. I thought of my parents, well mother mostly, and how she looked when I told her I was leaving, of course I'd be coming back, but I still left without saying goodbye. Out of the corner of my eye I saw him raise an eyebrow.

"That's a pretty name, I'm Nick." I thrust his hand out, almost grazing my left breast. My heart leapt at the almost touch. I glared at him, and shook his hand with as much force I could muster, which, wasn't a lot. "So why are you out here all alone, in the middle of the night?"

"You wouldn't want to know." I said, suddenly feeling embarrassed, of course I would have to tell him where I was going at some point.

Nick looked at me. "Sweetheart, I would love, to know." He said catching my eye, he had a look on his face, that was so sincere, I decided to tell him.

"Well, I graduated today...." He busted out laughing.

"I see, so now you've decided to go follow your dreams on the open road?" He barely got out. I huffed, I couldn't believe he was laughing at me.

"For your information, I have a bucket list, I just want to get it done before I get to college." I said and I slid down on the seat a little more.

"Ah, a bucket list huh? Well, what have you already done on it?" He asked, finally controlling the laughter.

"Graduate high school, get a tattoo on my ass, and hitch-hike." I said pulling out the list and a pencil, drawing a line through the finished tasks.

"What did you get a tattoo of?" He asked curiously. I gave him a half-smile.

"There are some things, a man just has to find out on his own." I said flirtatiously, and instantly regretted it. Poor Tanner, I thought.

He chuckled "Okay, sweetie, I'll be seeing that tat, soon enough. What's the next thing on the list?"

I blushed a little. "Milk a cow." Nick looked at me, like I had three heads.

"You live, in the country, and have never milked a cow?" He said incuriously. I slid even further down the seat.


"Well then I know where we're headed." And he changed lanes. 

About an hour later, we arrived at, what Nick called, a cow farm. He led me inside. I couldn't help but notice that he was about a half a foot taller than me. He was wearing khaki shorts that showed just enough of his muscular calves. He had stopped and started talking to a man while I had been admiring him.

"Anya, meet Danny." An older man, with graying hair held out his hand. I shook it and smiled shyly. "He is going to let you milk one of his cows."

Danny gestured for me to follow him to the back. I pulled my hair back and sat down on the stool he pulled out for me. "Okay," He said "This is called an utter, and this," He pointed at a pink thing, extruding from it, "Is called the nipple. Now you know what a nipple is I'm sure." I nodded smiling. "Well, you take this..." He showed me how to get the milk to come out, and then left me to it. The cow turned her head to look at me.

"Hey, darling." I said cautiously, not feeling like getting kicked in the face. I took my hands off the utter and patted it on the stomach. It turned back around, seeming to not care about my presence. "Don't worry, I've recently become a vegetarian, so I won't eat you." I finished up and went to wash my hands. I met back up with Nick at the front.

"So beautiful, have a good time?" He said, smirking. I nodded. "So, you think you can get a ride out of here?" He said.

"Yah, I'm fine from here." I said, kind of sad to see him go.

He had made it all the way back to his truck when he turned to me. "What's the next thing on the list?" He asked.

I shrugged "You'll just have to find out." He laughed and got into his truck.

"Maybe I'll see you around later sweetheart."
