Holly had a dream.
Not to kiss a frog prince, live in a castle, or even to see floating lanterns (though some of these are probably on her wishlist).
Holly’s big dream was to go to prom. Her whole life.
She had visions of a dress. Curly hair. Music filling the air. And dancing late into the night like a modern-day fairytale.
When the opportunity finally arrived she couldn’t contain herself for even a moment! PROM!!!
However, Holly found herself without a date. And we all know no princess should arrive to the ball unescorted. So the big question for several weeks was who to ask? Well it took careful thought, but “who” her date should be was pretty much a no brainer all along. Ashton. He’s been a close friend for many years and excitedly accepted her “prom-posal” in the booth at Chick-fila. The two instantly began making “Old Hollywood” themed plans for the special night.
Holly found her dress. A perfect gown. The very first one she tried on. She just knew it was the one….long, flowy, sparkly…just like a ball gown. And he waited to surprise her with his suspenders and bow tie.
On the day of prom she got all dolled up with her curls, glitter, and Converse.
He cleaned up well, too, and put special effort into making sure the corsage and boutonnière were just right.
In those hours of anticipation they went prancing through grassy fields, giggling and being as awkwardly fun as possible.
They were mostly stunning dream models….even Hillary, who tagged along.
Then came the moment. During the drive she just smiled. All those years of dreaming, and now it was all coming true.
The evening was such a thrill. He spun and dipped her, and made her float about the dance floor like no other couple. No doubt it was the highlight of her entire year.
Never ever stop dreaming, Holly! Sometimes those crazy wishes really do come true!
