The drive home was silent apart from what little music there was playing in Caleb’s car.

“So beautiful, hit me with you’re questions,” Caleb said slowing down at the traffic lights.
“Hmm, how do I start this off… Lets go for the obvious, why’d you lie?” I asked leaning my head on the car window.
“Silver, you know Poppy, she’d follow me round for like months and then I’d tell her straight, that she was only a bit on the side, then she’ll make out to ruin my life… But everyone likes you, everyone knows you and Poppy will leave me alone after a week,” Caleb said pulling into my driveway.

I sighed and turned to face Caleb.

“So how long do you expect me to be your girlfriend?” I mumbled.

Caleb smiled and grabbed me over his seat to hug me.

“You are truly the best friend, ever!” Caleb said squeezing me.
“I know right?” I laughed.
“And only about a month, I promise I’ll make it up to you, I’ll be truly in your debt!” Caleb said releasing me and gazing into my eyes.
“You best do,” I said with a serious face but burst out laughing anyways.

I looked over to the door to see my mom looking at us with a smile on her face, next to her was Caleb’s mom.

“What do we tell our parents?” I whispered trying not to move my mouth.
“The truth,” Caleb smiled, “I asked you out this morning and you couldn’t have been more than happy to say yes.”
“That’s so totally the truth isn’t it Caleb?” I laughed.
“More or less.”

Caleb got out of his car and walked round to the passenger side, opening it for me like he always done. But this time was different. Instead of us walking up towards the porch with linking arms, he held my hand. Not like a brother-sister type either. Our hands were intertwined with each others.

“So what do we have here?” Violet, Caleb’s mom asked with an eyebrow raised and a playful smile on her face.

Before I could say anything Caleb stepped in and held my hand tighter.

“Ella and Mom, I realised my feelings for Silveigh last night, I had this strange dream about her and I realised it was her that I wanted to spend the rest with my life with, so I asked her out. And she was delighted. I love your daughter Mrs Grant,” Caleb lied placing a kiss on my temple.

He kissed me! And it wasn’t one of those awkward moments either, I’m pretty sure my mom and Violet completely fell for it.

“I knew this would happen sooner or later!” My mom smiled inviting us in.

We both sat on the sofa, well Caleb sat on the sofa, I sat on his lap with his arms around my waist. This felt so natural.

“I have a surprise for you,” Violet grinned bringing out a rather large dress bag.
“Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! You haven’t finished it already have you!?” I screamed running over to grab the bag out of Violet’s hand.
“Only the best for my future daughter-in-law,” Violet smiled.

I returned the genuine smile, with a nervous one. I began unzipping the dress bag and I could feel the idiot smile growing on my face.

“It’s beautiful!” I squealed jumping up and down.

My prom dress was gorgeous, it was Midnight Blue. It was one that had a corset at the top half and it puffed out a little, but not a lot. Down the corset there was sparkly black lines racing down, but stopping at the flowy part. It also had lace netting on top of the corset. It was one I’d always dreamed about since I was little, but never found one that looked right.

Violet was a dress maker and offered to make it for free.

“I love it, thank you so much!” I smiled hugging Violet tight.
“Anytime sweetie,” She replied.

I felt a tap on my shoulder, I turned around to see Caleb smiling at me.

“In a weeks time, Silver will you go to the prom with me?” Caleb smiled placing a kiss on my hand.
“Why of course I’d go to the prom with you.”
