Jane Carter grabbed Edwin Carpenter's hands and swung them around. "Thanks for the other night," she said. "It really meant a lot to me."
Rachel Bear, who stood nearby, overheard and saw how close the two were standing next to each other. Angrily, she pushed Edwin. "What happened the other night, Edwin?"
Edwin glanced between Jane & Rachel and shrugged. "Nothing." Then he walked off to see who else was at the party.
Jane looked at Rachel and felt silly. She didn't the whole world to know Edwin gave her a pity kiss. "It was nothing. I was just missing Daniel, that's all... I just felt stupid and Edwin... er... cheered me up..."
David couldn't have been happier.
Victoria rubbed the sore spot on her shoulder. She spit out, "God, I wish baby's weren't allowed to come to the Prom!" before flouncing away.
Krista watched Edwin reel back. She felt so bad for him. Sure, she probably should've been made because he'd made some passes on her, too. But... really... she just felt bad for him.
Krista laid a hand on his arm. "Don't do this David. Let's just go have fun."
David relaxed and let Krista lead him away.
David shrugged. "It just doesn't make sense why all the girls go crazy for him. He treats them all like crap!"
Krista snuggled closer. "I know. I'm glad that I have you!"
Jeremy had screwed together enough courage to ask Jasmine to dance, but then was tongue-tied the entire time. She looked so beautiful in that dress!
Jeremy nodded in agreement. "Yeah. Real smooth guys."
"He went home!" David called from the crowd.
Flustered, Ms. Caretaker glanced at her cue cards. "Oh dear. Well, let's see. The runner-up is Travis Carter. Please come up with Miss McMillan."
