Rocky STood rooted to the SpoT. He had just been STruck by the

he SoughT to find the right words to STop the glorious girl in
"ST-STay, please ST-STay one moment", he STammered as she STrode
along. As she turned her wondrous blue eyes upon the STatarian he
STrained for self-control. "May I please dedicate my STagazine to
you?", (Lord, give me STrength he prayed) "please reST assured
the ScripT is SomeThing of subSTance". ThiS tongue twiSTing
SenTence subdued the STutter and reSTored his courage. Was there
not a degree of eSTeem as well as aSTonishment in her gaze, he
Willeke was STartled by this STrange approach but the sun shone
as she responded with a smile to the SmiTten scribe. Ricky was
ecSTatic - if he could suSTain the momentum he might manage to

scared STiff. A troubled look SeTtled on his face and Willeke
wondered what was so diSTurbing as she said goodbye to this not
inSignificanT young man.
