Jason dreamed of taking Sara to the prom, but he was too timid to ask. If only he knew the feeling was mutual.
Jason found Sara about to enter the library and looking at the beautiful bug resting by the entrance.
“Sara, may I ask you something?”
Before Jason could finish, Connor cut him off.
“Sara,” Connor said without hesitation, “will you be my prom date?”
Sara glanced at Jason expecting a reaction. But there was none.
“Sure,” she replied.
As Sara and Connor went inside, Jason smashed the bug into pieces before it could fly away.
