Ben and Mary became good friends in second grade, and Ben promised Mary that one day he would take her to the prom. In those days of childhood innocence, Ben didn’t see Mary as anything special; she was just a girl, but a girl he liked a lot.
Years passed, and they remained close friends throughout elementary, junior high, and high school. Ben was always on the lookout for her during those years. It was then time for the prom.
Ben kept his promise to Mary, the little girl he had become good friends with in second grade; the little girl who, because she had Downs Syndrome, was seen as different by so many others, but who Ben only saw as a good friend. When the prom rolled around, Ben, now a popular quarterback on the school’s football team, walked proudly arm-in-arm with Mary.
Mary was treated like a fairy-tale princess that night by her charming Prince Ben. And a long-standing promise to a friend was fulfilled.
