Kat had never given any thought about the prom during most of her time in high school. As someone who generally kept to herself, had only a few close friends, and who just never really thought too much about such things, Kat had never really expected to go to the prom.
There was also the issue with there never having been anyone who showed any interest in her, and weren’t you supposed to go to prom with someone?
That had all changed when Kat had met Matthew. He was two years younger than her and one of her brother’s friends. There was just something about him that draw Kat to him and it seemed that that something went both ways. Soon they were going to the movies, dinners, having study dates, and of course all the fun things that being a couple entailed such as kissing and the occasional naughty touch, but nothing more than that.
As Kat stared into the mirror, carefully applying her make-up, she couldn’t help but think of how lucky she was. Natalia had done her hair, her little sister had such a talent when it came to hair! Though her manners still left something to be desired. Ivan was downstairs likely terrifying Matthew with what he would do to his friend if Kat did not come back at eleven and if she came back crying. Luckily for Kat, Matthew was not so easily scared away.
“I should still go save him though.” Giving herself one more look in the mirror to make sure everything was in order, she wanted to look perfect for Matthew after all, she headed downstairs.
She could pin point the moment that they noticed her; everything suddenly got very quiet. When she saw Matthew’s face she knew that she could be wearing a burlap sack and Matthew would find her beautiful, it was one of the things she loves about him.
“Shall we be going?” She asked as she held her hand for Matthew to take.
Matthew gave her hand a kiss and then held it as though it were a delicate flower. “Let us go my lady.” He nodded to Natalia and Ivan as he lead her out the door.
Kat could barely suppress a giggle as Ivan’s voice followed them out. “You will be having her back by 11 or I will be killing you da?”
