Ronald saw the girl in the black bikini sitting by herself on the narrow beach. He summoned up every bit of courage he possessed, walked up to her, and asked if she’d like to go for a ride with him on his paddle board. Much to his surprise, she smiled and said she would.
He reached his hand out to help her up and she continued to hold his hand as he led her to his board. He helped her onto it and then they paddled out onto the lake.
“Sometimes wishes are actually granted,” Ronald thought, smiling broadly.
