Camilla was the only girl who hadn’t been asked to the Senior Prom. Deciding to skip it entirely, she took solace in knowing she would soon be away from the cruel boys and girls of High School. Finally, her intellect would matter more than her girth.
A day before Prom, her younger sister Amelia, bounded home in glee. The quarterback of their football team had asked her to accompany him when his date fell ill. As Amelia was merely a Sophomore, she couldn’t believe her luck- she would be the Prom King’s date!
In a frenzy, she scoured her wardrobe, turning to her sister’s when she found nothing suitable.
Camilla’s stunning emerald green silk dress, custom-made for her 16th birthday (where not a single invitee had shown up) would make the perfect Prom dress. Amelia’s silent plea to borrow it was granted and Camilla even helped her size it down.
When Josh arrived at 7 p.m., Amelia stood waiting in her green resplendence. However, when she saw a solitary tear escape Camilla’s eye, she hugged Josh and excused herself from being his date.
This momentous occasion would be celebrated at home and there would be two Prom Queens.
