Staged Innocence

by caccy46

Elizabeth's first heartthrob was Ronny Horner. He lived two and a half blocks up the road, just close enough for Elizabeth to look through her dining room window and watch him begin his walk to high school. Every morning, Elizabeth, still in junior high, timed it properly so she could cross the road and say "hello" as she passed him walking in the opposite direction. She never realized how obvious she was, how red her face would become or that her voice was simply a tiny whisper. Two years later on a hot, sticky summer night, as they lay in each other's arms on her parent's back porch, Ronny told her how cute she was on those mornings long ago. Again, she blushed, thinking, he knew?
