I’d been waiting all year to ask out Melody. When Promposals started, I knew I had to take the opportunity before some other guy beat me. The sparkle in her brown eyes told me everything I needed to know. She wanted this too and tonight I had the chance to make my move. 

“You look like a penguin,” my older brother said. He waltzed into the living room without a care in the world. A can of soda in one hand and a bag of chips in the other.
