He let her see him coming, and when he got to her, he said, "So, are you more a cherry girl or a coconut girl?"
"Cherry," she said, smiling warily, "why?" When he handed her the cherry sno-cone, the smile became open and relaxed, and he fell head over heels in love. All he knew was that he had to get her to like him, to want to see him again. Asking for her phone number right away would be creepy, and giving out his would make him desperate and forgettable.
What he had was time, time to try and make her laugh, with funny stories about his childhood, and ask her questions about hers. She was an orphan, raised by maiden aunts who wanted her to grow up old, alone, and man-hating like
