Thursday afternoon Beth went to the park with her friends. They sat on a bench and talked about who was dating who. Beth didn't listen, she watched the boys walking towards them. He was there, walking and talking. And when he saw her, he grinned. The boys sat with the girls. Vince sat with Beth. He lit a cigarette. "You coming tomorrow Beth?" "Where?" she asked. "Roberts party. You have to come", he answered. She nodded. Just. That afternoon, she felt happy.
