"Mika, I'm telling you, if you want to go to the prom with Yuu, you're the one that's gonna have to ask him." Crowley said as he was digging around his locker to find his literature textbook.
"Yeah, I don't think Amane is smart enough to figure out a way to ask." Lacus added as he was fixing his ponytail.
Mika ran a hand through his golden tresses, "Okay, but what if Yuu-chan doesn't want to go to prom with me?"
Krul looked up at him from her iPhone, "And who would he go with, Hiiragi? She's already going with her girlfriend."
"Yuu-chan may not even want to go." Mika said.
"Oh, silly Mika-kun, of course Yuu-chan wants to go to prom! There's no one in the world that would purposefully miss their own prom!" Ferid sang, throwing an arm around the blonde's shoulders.
"Mika, just ask him already, prom is two weeks away." Crowley insisted, slamming his locker shut.
"I'll wait until I know for sure Yuu-chan wants to go." Mika said, leaving his group of friends to walk to class.
The four watched the blonde's receding figure when Lacus spoke, "Ten bucks that he asks by the end of the day."
"Ten that Yuu asks him." Crowley replied.
"Yuu-san, ask him!" Shinoa whined.
"I don't even know if Mika wants to go!" Yuu replied, kicking a soccer ball to Narumi.
"Yuu-kun, I'm sure he wants to, he's probably waiting for you to ask." Yoichi said as he answered a question to his trigonometry homework.
Narumi kicked the ball to Kimizuki before putting in his input, "Maybe Mika wants to ask him."
"That's what I was thinking." Mitsuba said as a finger twirled a strand of hair.
"Which is it, do I ask him, or does he ask me?" Yuu questioned, stopping the approaching ball he received from Kimizuki with a foot.
"Dude, it could go either way, just try to bring the conversation up." Kimizuki said.
The bell rang, signaling the end of their free period, Yuu grabbed the ball and ran to put it back in the equipment shed.
"Fifteen bucks Mika asks him." Narumi said.
"I bet twenty they both ask each other." Shinoa replied.
After school, Yuu and Mika met up in the student parking lot next to Mika's Charger, about to partake in their weekly McDonald's run.
As they pulled out of the parking lot, the childhood friends took notice that neither were making an attempt to start a conversation; both mentally consumed with waiting to see if the other would ask the long awaited question.
And more silence and anticipation filled the void. The car came to a stop at a red light, behind four-or-so other cars.
The two spoke simultaneously, gazes locking as their words spewed; faces flushing, though reason unknown to the other.
"You first." Yuu said.
"No, it's okay, you can say it first, Yuu-chan." Mika answered.
An annoyed grunt escaped Yuu's nostrils, "Okay, we're gonna be stuck here all day if we keep this up, how about we say it at the same time?"
A silent countdown sounded between the two of them as their blushes worsened.
3... 2... 1...
"Will you go to prom with me?"
They gaped in immediate response before wide grins spread across their visages.
Neither could respond vocally, as a loud car horn honked behind them, Mika pressing his foot on the gas pedal; not knowing the light had turned green.
"Yes." Yuu said.
Mika smiled as he took hold of Yuu's hand in his own.
Later that night, the two were confused about the comment war that was going on in Yuu's Facebook status, where their friends were arguing over who owed who money.
