Another great Amish short story romance.
*Contains a few Amish words*
Anna had lived in the community all of her life, not even leaving for Rumspringa when all of her friends had done so.
She loved her family, her community, and everything about their culture and faith...apart from one little thing that had troubled her all her days. The culture dictated that she should not sing and dance too much in public, not be loud or attract attention upon herself, and should be quiet most of the time. The problem Anna had with this, was that she loved to sing, to dance, to be bright and outgoing, and to be a positive soul in the world. She had been repeatedly told off by the elders and her own parents for being too outgoing, loud, and extroverted, and over time had learnt to hide her bigger nature and eventually grew unhappy and had even doubted her faith at times.
"Why would Gott not want me to praise him in such a joyous manner?"
One day she finished singing to find a man watching her and giving her applause. Anna was ashamed and felt guilty but the young man encouraged her to not stop. They talked a while and discovered that the man (Amos) was a relation of one of the elders and was going to live in their community. Anna became terrified that he would share her secret and that she might be punished, but he assured her that he would say nothing. Would Amos betray her and divide the community, or would she be able to finally convince the community and its elders of the value of "Joy".
