Amber sat in front of a small stack of prom magazines at our lunch table. She went on and on about how Steven had asked her and I needed a date and dress because I could NOT miss my senior prom.

“I’ll just go stag. I can still dance, and who knows, maybe Mr. Right will sweep me off my feet!” I mocked.

“I’ll find you a date! What do you like, tall dark and handsome? Fair and slight? Fire-y red-heads with a flair for drama?”
