    Elizabeth couldn't help feeling flattered. "Thanks, Todd. That's really nice of you to say. But I don't think he's going to change the list just because I ask him to."

    "Yeah. But we've probably got a better chance if you ask him than if somebody else asks him."

    "Hi, Elizabeth," Todd said, pulling out a chair across from Elizabeth. "Is it OK if I--"

    But before he could finish, Denny materialized again and took Todd's chair. "Sorry to leave you for so long," Denny said, giving Todd a warning look.

    Todd frowned and took the seat next to Denny.

    "Hope I'm not in the way," he said with a slight note of sarcasm.

    "Of course not," Denny said quickly. "Elizabeth and I were just about to have lunch." Denny flashed her a big smile. "There's nobody I'd rather have lunch with."

    "You did that scene beautifully, Todd," Elizabeth said quietly.

    Todd reddened slightly. "You did a nice job, too." Then he frowned and shook his head, as if he were trying to clear it. "Let's not get carried away, though, Jessica."

    "You really showed those jerks," Maria added. "Bruce's ego will be ruined forever now."

    "You guys are the greatest," Elizabeth said, biting into her tuna sandwich. "I should have listened to you from the start. I don't need friends like that. You guys are all I need."

    "Hey, how about me?" Todd asked as he appeared from behind. "Don't you need me, too?"

    "I just wish you and I could have... I don't know. Done more together. You know?"

    Elizabeth nodded. "You don't think I was avoiding you or anything, do you?"

    Todd shook his head and held out another bite of ice cream toward Elizabeth. "It just seemed like... maybe you were putting off asking me something?"

    "Asking you something?" Elizabeth repeated, her eyes wide with innocence. "What do you mean?"

    "Oh, nothing important," Todd said, looking around Casey's and leaning back casually in his seat. "I'm just wondering if you're going to have fun at that dance, all by yourself. I'm sure you will. I bet you'll have a great time, talking to everyone." Todd cleared his throat. "Of course, if you decide you'd rather not dance alone, I happen to know this guy who's a really good dancer--well, at least he's not a really bad dancer--and he could, you know, probably make the evening a lot more fun. He might still be available--I'm not sure."

    "Really. Is that so?" Elizabeth picked up a bite of brownie in her spoon and held it out to Todd. "So enough kidding around," she said, gazing into Todd's eyes. "I have been putting this off forever, but not because I didn't know I wanted to ask-- Oh, hey, there's Robin." She pointed to the doorway...

    "Elizabeth? Shouldn't we get off the raft and swim for it?" Todd asked. Elizabeth looked at the pieces of the raft that remained. The part she was sitting on was only three logs wide. Water bubbled between the cracks.

    "I guess so," she said sadly. She and Todd were the only ones left on the raft. "I was really hoping this would work."

    "I know," Todd shook his head.

    Elizabeth took a deep breath. "All right. When I say three, we'll jump for it. One...two..."

    "Look out, Elizabeth!" [...]

    Elizabeth swallowed a mouthful of sea-water. She realized that Todd's arms were around here. "Where am I?" she coughed.

    "In the middle of the Pacific Ocean," Todd answered. "You hit your head. Are you all right?"

    Elizabeth felt her body being leveled off. She floated on her back, waves lapping around her ears. "No," she croaked. "I feel--sick."

    "Okay. Just hold on." Todd kicked gracefully through the water. Elizabeth could feel his hands supporting her shoulders and the warm sun caressing her face. That was a close call, she realized. And it was at that very moment that she blacked out.

    Licking his lips nervously, he began to read.

    "7:45 Fri. evening
    Dear Todd,
       Hi. Writing notes is kind of awkward.
    Don't you think so?
       Well, I was just kind of wondering if you wanted to go to a movie. With me, I
    mean. Saturday night. We could go see the Eileen Thomas movie if you want...

    Todd grinned. It was almost identical to the note he'd written Elizabeth the week before. His eyes flicked to the end.

       "But if you don't want to, I understand.
                Yours,
                Elizabeth
       P.S.:Wakefield, that is"

    Elizabeth reached for Todd's hand and held it. "i'm really sorry, Todd," she murmured. "Will you--will you go to the movie with me?"

    Todd could feel himself blushing, but he didn't even care.

    I'm going out with E.W. after all!

Excerpt: Pgs. 74

    "Is this a bad time or something?" Todd's irritable tone caught Elizabeth's attention.

    "No, why?"

    "Because you keep looking around and fidgeting with letters in your bag," Todd replied.

    Elizabeth blushed faintly. "I'm sorry. I guess I've got a lot on my mind. This advice column is a big responsibility, and it's hard to put it on the back burner."

    Todd sighed. "Yeah, but are you going to let it take up your whole life?" he asked.

    Elizabeth frowned. "Of course not. But I can't just pretend people don't have problems because it's not convenient for me to deal with them."

    Todd tapped his spoon on the edge of his dish. "People managed to get along before the Sixers had an advice column, you know?"

    Elizabeth started to feel a little angry. She had thought Todd understood how important her job was. "Look, I'm sorry I forgot about our date yesterday, but you don't have to get nasty about my column."

    "It's not that," Todd said defensively. "I'm not mad because you forgot to meet me. Everybody forgets things. But it's really hard to talk to somebody who's not interested in listening."

    "I've got a lot on my mind," Elizabeth protested. "Can you understand?"

    "Sure. I understand. Give me a call when you're just plain Elizabeth again and not 'Dear Elizabeth'." Todd put down his napkin and slid out of the booth.

    It's not just one or two people, either, Jessica thought gloomily, grabbing her books as the last bell rang. It's everybody!

    Todd Wilkins, Elizabeth's sort-of boyfriend stopped her as she came into the hall. "Jessica, maybe you can tell me-- is something bothering Elizabeth?" he asked.

    He looks terrible, Jessica thought with a rush of pity. She sighed. "Whatever it is, it's not your fault, Todd--OK?" she told him firmly.
