Characters
Stella; Ronny, Red
Synopsis
Stella was one of the prettiest and most popular girls at Evans High, and always needed to be reminded of it. She demanded attention, dating as many boys as she could... until she met Ronny. Tall, handsome, and the captain of the basketball team, she fell head-over-heels for Ronny. They went steady, but when Stella asked Ronny to come to a party for her 17th birthday, he told her that he couldn't, that he had a big game the next day, and had to turn in by 9. Even though he tried to explain that, as captain, he had a responsibility to the other members of the team; she erupted and broke up with him. The next day, Red, the leading scorer of the team, asked her out and she promised him a kiss, only if he scored more points than Ronny. At the game, Red was shooting well, but with no teamwork, the team was losing. Realizing she made a mistake, she begged the coach to talk to them and explained what she had done. Working together, the team won, and Stella went up to the two afterwards. Fulfilling her promise to Red, she gave him a kiss, but told Ronny that, "from now on my lips are reserved for you." "You lucky Goop," muttered Red.
