She questioned over and over again. She loved him with every fiber of
her being, but he made a fool out of her. They all did. She thought
he liked her back, but he didn't. He lied to her and embarrassed her
in front of everyone she has known since she was in diapers. Why
did he have to do that? Stupidly
she had gained up the nerve to ask Bryan to the prom and he said yes.
Yes! That was the highlight of her life! The moment the last school
bell rang she went home to ask her Papa if she wear her late Mama's
gown. She explained to him that Bryan was the man of her dreams and
perhaps he was her true love. He agreed and they had the dress

waiting and miss a “single second of the best night of your life.”

followed the man to her fairytale she really did deserve.
