a cure for the common block

The Prom

Spinner fumbled with the corsage, he had thought he’d appear more mature with the pin-style, rather than the wristband, but reality – as usual – betrayed his hopes and imaginations. With kind assistance from Becky, he finally pinned it to her dress and they were ready for the awkward photos by their parents; while Spinner was mentally kicking himself over the corsage debacle, Becky was mortified by her parents gushing over their “little chickie”. At the time they both felt humiliated and defeated, they each pinpointed it as the moment the other probably decided their experiment to be “more than friends” would disintegrate, but two hours later they shared a dance and a kiss that made them realize how deeply they were in love with one another.
