Dear friends of Thebedtimestory.online and the art of Ralf Christoph Kaiser, Today I would like to present you a new short story: "On the ranch in Idaho." It is a fictional story set in the state of Idaho on a ranch near Richfield.
In addition to this short story, which is available here in an international version, you will also receive a song in the form of an audio drama, which sets the story to music and sound noises.
I hope you enjoy this work and thank you for your support.
Your team from TheBedtimestory.online
Here is the story:
On the ranch in Idaho short story by Ralf Christoph Kaiser May 19, 2021
My husband is on tour a lot
I take care of myself and the animals
4 cats two horses and a dog
It's hot in summer
There was a warmth storm
Everything still smells fresh and damp
Actually, I wanted to go into town and go shopping today
But I canceled it at short notice because of the weather
Instead I cooked something nice.
You can do something good for yourself on your own.
To improve the mood
I open another Prosecco.
Then I sat down on the veranda and smoke someone with loud music from the kitchen.
Someone seems to be sneaking around the driveway further out.
At first I thought it was a wild animal
But then I recognize the guy
from the suburb that I've run into before.
It's kind of scary
Always has a beard and dirty shoes too.
I get a queasy feeling
get the rifle out of the junk room,
step outside and shout:
„Get out of here!“
This guy looks in my direction but makes no move to leave.
I don't hesitate and shoot two cartridges into the air with the double barrel.
It bangs properly and there is smoke from the barrel.
This guy finally seems to realize he's wrong here.
I see how he hurries down the driveway to his car, which must be parked somewhere around the corner
Tires screech and dust swirls up
then there is rest.
The two horses snort and neigh with joy as I come to them and them
Throw in oats.
It's good that someone is still there who likes me.
I stroke her neck, patting her flank and say:
„That just went well again.
The cat stands at the entrance of the barn and maunts,
while she humps and strokes the beam.
So it is right
almost the whole family is back.🥰
I see the sunset over the hilltop from the roof window,
far to the west.
Fantastically beautiful colors ...
When will he return home from his tour?
I miss my husband a little.
He said he'd be back in a week.
It's been over 2 days now.
There was sure to be some trouble at the border again.
That would be nothing new.
Whenever he is checked at customs with his unusual goods, they keep his truck up until everything has been registered and cleared.
If he doesn't arrive tomorrow, I'll call his mother.
She lives very close to the border. He's sure to find shelter there.
I close the skylight and decide
another movie to watch in bed.
It's a love romance with Jonny Depp
and Julie Delphi.
One of the films that you can watch more often when you are driven by longing.
Later I fall asleep straight away without taking the detour through the bathroom.
I am grateful for the day -
and also a little proud to have everything under control here.
