imagine going to the drive-in with your friend. the two of you are talking to the gang, but dally is just standing in the back, not saying a whole lot. you and him had history, and he was definitely the one who got away. you catch him looking at you a lot, though. you break out of the group for a split second to go get some popcorn for the movie, and dally pops in line behind you. "What, you forget how to talk?" you smile at him, and his face turns bright red. "i just didn't have nothin' to say, that's all!" he says back, and you can't help but laugh a little bit. "You got anything to say now?" you ask. "i... well, i mean..." he stutters, unable to talk. "wow, looks like the king of cool isn't so cool anymore," you grin. "it's impossible to be cool around you. you're the most beautiful girl i've ever seen in my life," he finally spits out. "you leave me speechless... in a good way." now, you don't know what to say. he sighs, and looks at the ground. "i'm sorry, i just shouldn't have said anything," dally says, a bit embarrassed, and turns around. before he can, you grab his arm. "you make me speechless, too, dally." "in a good way?" he asks hopefully. "in the best way humanly possible," you smile back.
