I didn't ask her. I was feeling bold, and happy, and totally was sure that there was no way she'd turn me down.
But that incident in english deflated me. I'm the same shy thing I was last week. Having that brought up both caught me off guard, and deflated any feelings of boldness I had. It dropped me back into that feeling of powerlessness that I felt so long ago..
And I let what was probably my only proper opportunity to get with Ariel slip through my fingers. I probably didn't have a chance, anyways, so oh well.
