He burst into the tailor shop and looked around
for the shopkeeper who was standing behind the counter. The shopkeeper
was astounded by his entrance. She stepped out from behind the
counter to investigate the arrival of the frantic visitor.
"May I help you?” she inquired.
The sailor took a deep breath and began explaining about the woman
he had just seen in the store. He explained how he had to talk
her and wanted to know her name. The shopkeeper chuckled to herself
as she realized that this poor man had been floored by her customer
moments before. She sighed and gave him the information that he
wanted. The sailor clicked his heels with glee and started skipping
his way to the door. Right then, the shopkeeper turned and said
something to him.

“Don't waste your time. She wouldn't be interested
"We'll see about that." the sailor said to himself.
Just then, he noticed a sign on the door. It was something about
a dance being held in the town in two weeks time. He asked the
shopkeeper about the time and place of this dance. The shopkeeper
gave him directions and said something about finishing dresses
for that dance. The wheels started to turn in the sailor's head.
He was developing a plan in his head on how to get the young woman
to go to this dance with him.
"Wait a minute." he thought.
"She was just in here getting a dress. Maybe she is going
with someone else!"
The sailor stopped the shopkeeper one more time and asked if she
knew whether the woman had a date for the dance. The sailor didn't
know that was what they were talking about when he saw them in
the window. The shopkeeper shook her head as she walked into the
What the sailor didn't know was that the woman didn't really
like the hustle and bustle of the town. She like spending time
in the hills in the countryside; walking the trails through the
woods and listening to the songs of the meadowlarks perched on
a fencepost. From time to time, she would sit out on the front
porch of her house on the hill and listen to the sounds of the
ocean. She enjoyed feeling the cool, salty spray of ocean water
on her face. This sounded almost like how the sailor spent his
days but she didn't know it, yet.

Meanwhile, the sailor was trying to figure out how to approach
the young woman. He knew what had happened the last time he tried
to talk to her. He didn't know what to say to her. Even if he
did figure out what to say to her, he'd get so tongue-tied that
he wouldn't be able to speak. The sailor wasn't very good with
expressing himself in this way with words but he sure could play
"That's what I'll do." he thought.
He would play a sweet melody for her with his saxophone and use
that to ask her to the dance. But what should he play, and where?
He walked around town to ask more shopkeepers about the whereabouts
of the woman. Apparently, she was well known in the town because
her father was the chairman of the town council. He was highly
respected in the town. This was probably why the townspeople weren't
cooperative when a stranger like the sailor went around asking
questions. Finally, when the sailor had almost given up hope,
he learned that their house was on the hill.
He was beaming with delight when he heard the familiar reply,
"Don't waste your time. She wouldn't be interested in you."
"That's what you think." the sailor said to himself.
His confidence was building. All he had to do was go to the house
and play for her. He was still undecided on what to play for her.
