5. Gather the courage
Now was the time... I HAD to ask her if I didn't want someone else to.
"Hey Dusty?" I asked whispering in her ear.
"Yeah?" Dusty asked.
I gathered up all the courage I could muster before asking "Will you go to the ball with me?"
Dusty's eyes widened and her mouth fell in shock "B-but... I thought you hated me..."
I shook my head "Look, I'm sorry if I was a jerk before, but I really do want to go to the ball with me."
Dusty looked down quickly, but I could have sworn she was blushing "A-Alright..."
We sat through the rest of the day without peeping a word. When I went to my locker to get my stuff Dusty appeared out of no where. I yelped and dropped my backpack as Dusty's musical laughter filled the halls. Everyone stared at us.
It was really fun to scare Kai like that! I picked up Kai's bag and handed it to him.
"You ready to go??" Kai nodded.
I grabbed his hand and pulled him out the door.
