If you made it through high school, you are probably aware of how brave you must be to ask someone to dance, especially if you’ve never done it before and aren’t popular.
Dakota Nelton, a sophomore in high school from Grey, Louisiana, worked up the nerve to ask his friend to the homecoming dance at their school. Since he had never done so before, the occasion was significant for him and called for a lot of fortitude.
She declined as it was. Just fine, no? She is free to. The fact that it occurred in front of their classmates, who then laughed and made fun of Dakota for the rejection, is not okay. And to make matters worse, they destroyed the homemade poster he had used to propose.
Dakota moved away from the students, desperately hoping that a hole would appear in the ground and take him with it. A horrible circumstance for any young person, he fled to a cacophony of laughter and jeers.
“It was actually a pretty tough moment standing in a small circle with that one shake of the head, and you just got to find your way out of that circle,” he told WGNO New Orleans.
Then, just when he thought things couldn’t get worse, he discovered that the entire incident had been captured on camera. Someone posted the video to Facebook, where it received hundreds of views. Dakota was made fun of for merely attempting to get a date, and viewers from all around the US could see it.
The last laugh
Dakota showed up at the school a few days later, unaware that he would soon take part in an incident that would go down in history.
He was stopped in the corridor by a group of at least 13 girls, each holding a placard, as he passed by.
It turned out that the females had united to let Dakota know that he was loved and had no need to doubt himself. They wanted to invite him to accompany them!
A smiling Dakota said: “I felt like one of the popular kids in school, which I’m not.”
