From the Irish bestselling author of Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan comes a short story about modern love, old-fashioned values and a new-born calf.

While the country gears up for a referendum, a man sits waiting with a ring in his pocket…

He has known his girlfriend since they were children, though they have become quite different adults. He lives in the city, she works on a farm. She’s voting YES, he doesn’t know what he’s doing; what exactly it is he believes.

But he does know that he makes her laugh and that their connection feels natural, most of the time. So surely there’s a decent chance she will say YES to him too?
