"So, Neil, are you planning on going to the Winter Formal?" asked Ginny Danbury hopefully
"Yeah, everyone on student council has to go. Not that I wouldn’t go anyways." Neil said cheerfully
"Did you, you know, find a date yet?" Ginny mumbled embarrassedly
"Not yet," sighed Neil "But I’m working on it. Asking people out is always worse when you’re friends, you know? It can go really wrong really fast."
"You should just ask them!" Ginny cried, her eyes lighting up "I’m sure they’ll say yes! You never know until you say something!"
"You’re right, Ginny. Carpe diem!" Neil said with a grin, pulling the girl in to a hug
"It’s what I’m here for." beamed Ginny
Neil pulled away from the hug and walked off, much to Ginny’s confusion. She quickly walked after him until he stopped at Todd Anderson’s locker.
"Um, hey Todd." said Neil nervously
"H-hi Neil." mumbled Todd
"I was wondering… Want to be my date to the Winter Formal?" Neil asked quickly
"No way." muttered Ginny, watching Todd’s face burn brightly
"Oh. Oh! I, um, I’d l-like that a lot." Todd managed to choke out
"Great! Just…great! Okay, I’ll call you tonight. Oh, but I need your number. Duh." Neil blathered, a huge grin on his face
Ginny felt her disappointment subside a bit at the look on her friend’s face as Todd scribbled down his number on scrap paper, the blush still on his face.
