Sentence: When Vincent and Julius finally made it, they stopped to think. The brothers were at least an hour behind, they had the umbrellas, and the sun wasn’t up yet. Sure of themselves they went forwards. They hadn’t counted on the farmer’s daughters. A tangled web of alluruses quickly enraptured Julius, but Vincent had true love!
