Lesson 5: dare 2

LESSON 5: DARE 2
We hear the sequel to the dare
Andrew
Although Tony is usually a bit of a wimp when it comes to approaching
Girls, the buzz from the 6 beers he’d had was starting to give him some
Confidence.
Not to mention that he hates backing down from a good dare.
He didn’t have a lot of money either, so free drinks for the rest of the
Evening sounded like a good idea.
He chugged the rest of his beer and stumbled over to the 2 girls.
Without looking back to see my reaction, he grabbed a chicken wing
And slowly started eating it.
When he finished the wing he even had the audacity to ask one of the
Girls for a napkin to wipe the sauce from his face.
To everyone’s surprise, the taller of the two girls handed Tony a napkin
And told him he seemed like a sweet guy and asked him to pull up a
Chair.
Tony didn’t even have to explain why he took the wing without asking.

/> They talked and laughed for a while and eventually exchanged phone
Numbers.
I expect that this event will work wonders for his self-esteem.
