Setting: June 5 at 5:30 in the evening.
Jane is talking to her friend, Amy, about the graduation dance on June 15. Jane has a date, but Amy hasn't been asked yet and really wants to go with John, a guy in her biology class.
Jane's mother: "Hello."
Amy: "Hi is Jane there?"
Jane's mother: "Yes, just a minute."
Jane: "Hi Amy, has he asked you yet?"
Amy: "No, he didn't even make eye contact with me today in biology."
Jane: "Well, why don't you just go up to him and ask him to go yourself."
Amy: "Are you kidding, he doesn't even know I exist. Besides, I think he likes Renee."
Jane: "Renee, no way! Anyway, I know Renee is going to the dance with Mark. Just slip John a note on your way into biology and ask him to go; it's as simple as that."
Amy: "Easy for you to say."
Jane: "Well, if you won't tell him, I will. Tomorrow I'll tell him during English; he sits right next to me in there. I'll meet you at lunch and tell you what he says."
Amy: "Oh, Jane. I'm going to be so embarrassed!"
Jane: "Don't worry, I'll take care of everything. See you at the usual spot."
Amy: "Okay, see ya."
Setting: June 6.
