> In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working

> smile caught his eye, the new check-out girl was beautiful.
> She was an

> Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the

> He walked out only to see her start walking up the road.
> Next day, he

> He pressed and she explained she had two children and she
