While I gazed at her with my frozen eyes without a shame, my heart was pounding like an acrobat on a trapeze. She was in the park where I was playing a football game.

I really like how you described this ruby beauty. AT first I thought it was for the autumn fire contest and then I looked up and realized its title was for Frank's contest. GREAT job.
