“Her name is Martha Mackenzie.” Ric answered “Her father is in the oil business”

“Wow!” Jack replied.

Martha got on the bumpers cars with Ric’s girlfriend, Mattie. Jack watched in amazement. He smiled at her. She was laughing and joking with Mattie. After a while, Martha and Mattie got out of the bumper cars. Mattie ran over to kiss Ric. Martha started to walk ahead of them. Jack headed in her direction.

“I was just wondering would you like to dance?” Jack asked

“No!” Martha answered abruptly

“Why not?” asked Jack

“’Cause I don’t want to” Martha answered

Another guy walked over to them. It was a guy from the lumber yard where Jack walked. His name was Tomas.

“Hey Martha. Would you like to ride the ferris’ wheel with me?” he asked

“Sure” Martha smiled

“Great!” Tomas replied.

Tomas and Martha headed on to the ferris wheel. Jack watched as they sat on a seat and started to go up. Jack ran and jumped onto the ferris wheel. The man who was controlling it stopped it. Jack was up at the very top of the ferris wheel and he shouted up to Jack.

“Jack! You can’t do that!”

“I know, Jimmy. Wait a minute.” Jack replied

Jack was now hanging onto a bar on front of Tomas and Martha.

“What do you want?” Martha asked

“I wanna know will you go out with me?” Jack asked

“No.” Martha answered

“Please! I will have to let go if you don’t.” Jack said and let go of the bar. He was now holding on with one hand. Martha started to scream. So did Mattie and Ric

“Get down from there” Mattie said

“Not until she agrees to go out with me” Jack replied

“Fine, fine I will go out with you” Martha said

“What? I didn’t hear that?” Jack smiled

“I WANNA GO OUT WITH YOU!” Martha screamed

Jack put her hand back on the bar and replied “Ok! Ok! I will go out with you!”

“Oh! You think you are so smart! Don’t you!” Martha said.

Martha grabbed Jack belt of her trousers and opened them.

“What? What are you doing?” Jack asked

Martha pulled down his trousers and now showing were his whit boxers. Martha sat back in the sat and smiled at the very intelligent thing she had done

"Not so clever now!" Martha said

Everyone at the carnival saw it and started to laugh at Jack.

“You told me it would be just me and you”

“I didn’t know he was coming!” Mattie smiled

“Shall we, ladies!” Ric said

They all went into the cinema. Jack was sitting beside Ric and Mattie who were kissing. At the other end, Martha was sitting. She glanced at Jack. He smiled and she turned away. Jack moved down beside her.

“I so don’t get this movie” Martha laughed quietly

“Well, she likes him but just want admit it” Jack smirked

After a while, the movie ended. They all ran out of the cinema and Ric and Mattie got into the car. Jack and Martha looked at each other.

“Should we?” Martha asked him

Jack shrugged.

“Yeah…We are going to walk” Martha smiled

“Are you guys in love?” Ric laughed.

“So what did you think of the movie” Jack asked

“It was good. Loved the ending” Martha replied

“So did I. So what do you do at home?” Jack asked

“My days are kind of planned. Get up, dance lesson. Lunch, family time, piano lesson, dinner then I read”

“What do you do for yourself?” Jack asked

“Nothing. Haven’t got the time” Martha answered

“Come here!” Jack said grabbing Martha’s arm

“What?” Martha asked

“Lie down with me.” Jack said and lay down on the road

“No!” Martha replied

“Please!” Jack begged

“Fine” Martha laughed

Martha lay on the road beside Jack.

“What is a car comes?” Martha asked

“We die” Jack replied

“What?” laughed Martha

“Me and my dad used to sit here and watch the lights change” Jack said

“What did you stop?” Martha asked

“Just did.” Jack said

An awkward silence followed that. After a few minutes, Martha spoke;

“I paint”

“What?” Jack asked

“You asked what I did for myself. I paint” Martha said

Suddenly, they heard a noise. It was a car. They got up of the road very quickly and ran onto the path.

“We…nearly…died” Martha said out of breath

“Would you like to dance with me?” Jack asked

“There is no music” Martha said

“We can make some” Jack answered

Jack took Martha’s hand. Jack started humming and they slow danced in the middle of the road. Jack tilted Martha back and kissed her for the very first time. From that night on, it was love.

He thought he how to drive, they played around in the lake with Mattie and Ric. Like ever other couple they would fight but quickly make up. One night, Martha went over to Jack’s home. He was on the porch with his father. Martha walked up to them. He was reciting a poem.

“Martha” Jack smiled

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. I can go and call back” Martha said

“No! No…Don’t be silly” Tony, Jack’s father said

“Really? It is no problem” Martha said

“None what so ever” laughed Tony.

“Ok, so what were you saying anyway?” Martha asked

“Well, when Jack was younger he had a lisp. So I started to get him to read poetry. It helped”

“Dad” Jack said throwing his arms in the air

“What Jack? She doesn’t mind. Do you Martha?” Tony laughed

“No! Not at all” Martha replied

“Right! Come on in and we can get some drinks. Not alcoholic because well I am not that type of parent” Tony said walking into the kitchen

“So what bring you into town, Martha?” Tony asked as he handed Martha a drink

“Thank you, Tony. Summer holiday with my family.” Martha replied

“Ah…A summer romance” laughed Tony

“Dad!” Jack said

“Jack! I am just trying to get into your minds! When I was a teenager, we spend the summer study. Never went out. If we went to dances, we had to be a foot apart for the person you are supposed to be with dancing with. It was ridiculous!” Laughed Tony. “Also, we would never be allowed to swap spit! If you know what I am talking about”

“Oh my god! Unbelievable! Unbelievable!” Jack replied

“I better go.” Martha said “It was lovely meeting you, Tony”

“And you Martha!” Tony smiled

“I will walk you out” Jack said

Jack and Martha watched out of the house and onto the porch.

“Your dad it lovely!” Martha laughed

“He is so embarrassing!” Jack said

Jack and Martha kissed. Tony saw form out the window and shouted “That wasn’t allowed in my day! You guys are so lucky to be alive in this era”. They stopped and laughed. Martha left and Tony walked out onto the porch.

“She’s a keeper!” Tony said

Chapter 6

The next day, Jack was coming over to have dinner with Martha’s parent and a lot of the rich people from the town. Jack arrived and sat down at the table.

“So tell me Jack. Where to do work?” Anne, Martha’s mum asked

“The lumber yard” Jack answered.

Whispers filled the table. Martha sighed.

“And, how much to you earn?” Jimmy asked

“Daddy” Martha sighed

“No. It ok’s. I don’t mind” Jack said to Martha. “I get $4 dollars an hour”

Whispers filled the table again.

“Ah…I see” Jimmy answered

“Money isn’t a objective to me. What I get is enough. I have everything I need and that is what is important” Jack said

For a third time, whispers filled the table again. Martha was getting annoyed. She and Jack knew very well, that they were judging him as he wasn’t rich like very other person at that table. Jack didn’t care. He was proud and happy with where he was in his life. Money does not equal happiness. Jack knew this. Martha in the other hand did care. She could believe how horrible they were being to Jack.

“So what are you going to do after the summer? You know, when Martha leaves” Anne asked

“Well, the city is that far away…So I will drive up” Jack smiled to Martha

“Oh but Martha is going to college. St.Matthew’s” Anne smiled

Martha sighed again.

“I know” Jack answered

“St.Matthew’s is in Perth” Anne answered

“I didn’t know that” Jack said

“I was going to tell you” Martha said to Jack and then looked at her mother

“It is ok” Jack smiled

After dinner, Martha and Jack went out to the lake. Jack took of his top and jumped in. Martha was pulled in by him. From afar, Martha's parents were watching them.

“That girl seems to love him. He is not of our standards” Anne said

“It is just a harmless summer romance. It will not last” Jimmy replied

First can I say that I am sorry about my geography references in that chapter.

I think Perth is on the other side of Australia :lol:

I was just trying to think of a place away from Sydney

“Anything else?” laughed Jack

“A porch around the whole house” Martha smiled

Martha walked over to the piano. She started to play. Jack followed her over and started to kiss her neck. She turned around and kissed him on the lips. Jack walked over to the floor and laid out a blanket for them. He stared at Martha who was on the other side of the blanket. One by one, each part of the clothing was removed. They started to kiss. Each kiss became more and more passionate. Martha stopped kissing him.

“It is everything ok?” Jack asked

“Yeah” Martha said
