Don’t Toy With Me by Andrew Black

是 You Busy Tonight? by Russell Ridgeway

是  busy tonight? 这是 a simple question really. But so much more can be learned, and laughed at, from answers. Especially when the questioner becomes the questioned. 

Promposal! by Josie Gingrich

Oblivious, big-hearted Sam has grand plans (a glitter bomb! a marching band!) to ask introverted Anna to prom, but he has SERIOUSLY misjudged the situation.
