My Not So Picture Perfect Prom

As a little girl, I dreamed of when I would be in high school and would get to attend my high school prom.

Then my date would ring my doorbell, we’d take pictures on a grand staircase, he’d sweep me off my feet and away to prom, where we would dance the night away and take home the titles of Prom King and Queen. It would be perfect.
