The Story: Fishing and First Love

Hands in pockets, studying his shoelaces, Randy sidled up to me.

“What? Do I have barbecue sauce on my chin or something?”


Smiling up at him, I patted the bench beside me, split my cookie in two, and gave him half.

“You fish?”


“We just got a pontoon boat. Dad said I could ask you along.”


He nodded.


He frowned.

I grinned. “Just ’cause I work the bakery ‘til noon.”

Randy let out a whoosh of air. Had he held his breath?

“Your boss told me.”

Small towns.

“We’ll pull up to the dock for you.”
