100 Word Challenge | I really tried not to laugh…

“I stayed up last night practicing,” said Ben.

“How do you practice handing a girl a note?”

“It wasn’t easy, but I tried, man. I really tried.”

“Not to laugh at your efforts,” chuckled Jake, “but you know that she’s the most popular girl in school and you are… well…”

“Me?”

“Right.”

“Maybe she’ll just think it’s a joke.”

“Maybe not,” said Jake, nodding toward an approaching Jessica.

She strode purposefully. The note was slightly damp as she pressed it into Ben’s hand. And then she was gone.

Ben unfolded the note as though disarming a bomb.

Finally, he remembered to breathe.

“Well?”

“She marked yes.”
