“The Cajuns”

“Toward the end of the summer, she met, in the small public square in town, a charming nomad couple. Acadia and Armand were Cajuns who had been traveling around the United States for the past year and were about to return home. Lucinda fell in love with the two at their first meeting. Acadia, dressed in a voluminous cotton dress, whose baby-blue color contrasted dramatically with her short, dark hair, struck the recent graduate as the most genuinely maternal young woman she had ever met. Armand, with his black mustache and long, wavy locks, reminded her of Jesse Colin Young. The Cajuns were utterly devoted to one another, but never made a show of their love. Instead, they stretched out their arms to Lucinda, welcoming her as if she were an old friend, immediately making her feel at home with them, a part of their extended “family.” They would sit in the square and watch the day unfold. Armand played guitar superbly, and could summon any tune that Lucinda called to mind.”
