At the ape of 16, he has spent his savinprx to buy a car which he is transforming into n hot rod. Bnt bin friend* • till rib him about the machine, for they know that Ricky paid more for the old "jnnker" than it waa worth. XII T INK looked amused, but didn't •*- accept the challenge. "When your car has what mine has, I'll be ready. But I don't feel like wasting gas now." "That's a new way to chicken out," Ricky said. But he knew Link could run away from him. and he was glad to let the matter drop. Sherm lifted his head. He saw Ricky for the first time. "Hi, Rick," he said cheerfully. "How's the Connor-Madison Special?" 'Link howled, and even Chub and Jerry had to laugh. Ricky didn't answer, Sherm went back to his reading. Link winked at Chub, and talked to him, but loud enough so Ricky would be sure to hear. "I heard a rumor Connor-Madison was going to customize stock trucks and tractors." Chub guffawed. "I heard they built a hay baler that can reach three miles an hour in a quarter- mile drag." "With trenched headlights," Link added. "And a modified Merc power plant." "What a bomb!" •• Ricky swung around and leaned on the counter. Maybe because he'd known it was corning,- it didn't bother him too much. They could rib him all they wanted to, the fact remained t&at Link was the only one he couldn't outrun on the road f Link and Chub continued their loud jokes. Trying to be funny, Ijnk got dirty. i Ricky scowled at Link's first dirty comment. At the second he turned toward Link. "All right, Link, take it easy," Ricky warned. He motioned toward Sharon and her friend"Look who's getting a pure mind all of a sudden," Link taunted. "I'm just telling you," Ricky said stubbornly. "Lay off the dirt." He stepped closer to Link He was a little taller than Link, but Link was heavier. * • * T^HE humor went out of Link's voice. He didn't like to be crowded. Not by Ricky. "Quit trying to throw your weight around," Link said, trying to stare Ricky down. "You give me orders, you'd better be ready to back them up." "I am ready," Ricky said, meeting Link's stare. "Aw, break it up," Chub cried. "Well," Link said. "Well yourself," Ricky answered. Link grinned. 'He brought his left band up for a quick push against Ricky's chest. Ricky knew that habit of Link's, and was waiting for it. The moment Link's hand moved, Ricky lashed out with his left. But Link's hand didn't touch him. There was a blur of motion in which Link's face moved out of range, and as Ricky's left pawed the air, Link came in over Ricky's lead with a hard right. Link's knuckles met Ricky's chin, and Ricky went down on the seat of his »ants. When he scrambled to his feet, humiliated and raging, Jerry and Chub grabbed him. "That's all, you crazy fools!" Jerry commanded sharply. He held Ricky back. "Ricky just needed a little lesson, that's all," Link said. "He's a little free with his orders." Rick tried to pull away and attack again. "Simmer down," Jerry said disgustedly. "Let go!" Ricky said hoarsely "Let go!" "What's the matter with you, Rick?" Chub asked. "Can't you take a little ribbing?" "Not from that guy," Ricky muttered. Link watched them pull Ricky away, and then, the victor in possession of the field, he waved an impudent salute - and left. Sherm finished reading the comic book he had borrowed from the rack and closed it with a sigh. He looked at Ricky and yawned. "You got a cut on your chin, Rick," Sherm said, pointing with a big finger. "You didn't wreck your car, did you? What happened?" "Nothing, Sherm," Ricky answered. "That's good," Shenn said. He went to the magazine rack and got another comic book. Chub and Jerry went out, and drove away. That left Ricky alone with Shewn—which was like being all alone. Ricky sat with his chin in his hands, brooding over the loss of a dream, and over th* loss of the fight Ricky was surprised when Sharon took the seat next to him. He'd forgotten all about her. Remembering that she must have seen Link whip him, he felt a surge of shame. "Thanks, Ricky," she said. * • * TTE didn't look at her. "I didn*t •"• do anything." He looked down sullenly. He didn't want her to get any idea that he had been fighting over her. "You did a great deal," Sharon said. "You stopped his smutty talk." "Yeah. With my chin," Ricky said bitterly. "I like what you did, Ricky," Sharon continued. "You know . . . for some reason a lot of boyi go out of their way to talk that way in front of girls. So thanks for what you did." Ricky looked at her. What ever gave him the idea that Sharon was like a cold statue? Soft brown hair, gray-green eyes that were warm and friendly and bright, the sprinkle of freckles across her nose, and the smile, and that soft lower lip. . Why . . . they were old friends!
