The next day, Kalli made a point to walk past Alley's lifeguard station. Later, during his lunch break he asked her to join him for ice cream. They walked back to his station afterwards and chatted while he was on guard duty. Kalli practically skipped back home.

Alley was adorable. He had a good sense of humour, was good looking and sweet tempered. And she was pretty sure he liked her.

The week passed much the same. They both found more and more opportunities to spend time with each other.

One afternoon they were walking along the beach. The sun was just starting to set. Kalli turned to look at the colours over the ocean. Alley put his arm around her and she leaned into him. She felt so safe and secure that way. They stood there until the sun had set completely.

When the sky was full dark and they could only just see each other's faces Alley turned to her and said "Kalli, I'd like to ask you something."

"What, Alley?" Kalli replied. Her heart was skipping beats.

"Would you, would you like to go, go steady? With me?"

"I'd love to Alley" she said and flung her arms around him, pulling him into a tight hug.

After a second's pause, Alley hugged her back.

For a moment Kalli hoped he would kiss her, but when they broke apart, he shook her hand warmly.

He left with a promise to look her up for lunch the next day.

As the tall young man walked away, Kalli thought "What a goof!' But he was her goof.
