A/N: Sorry I've been gone for so long but I'm hoping to be back and updating again. :) I hope you enjoy this chapter. Also, I know I didn't respond to your guys comments about my surgery but I read them and thank you all so much. I didn't feel to bad but I made that chapter preparing for the worst but even though it's been like a week I'm still alittle sore and tender but it's just because I'm not a fast healer. But, I did read your comments and I appreciate that no one was mad :)

Grace's P.O.V

I went out with Ben and he literally dropped a bomb on me when he asked me on a date. I've never even been on a date before and I don't know what's suppose to happen when you do go on one. I know that I need to look way better than I do right now. That's why I was currently looking for Evie so she could help me get ready for this.

"There you are!" I semi-yelled as I seen her with Doug and I walked towards the table they were at. "I have been looking for you literally everywhere!"

"What's wrong?" Evie asked me looking up from Doug and seeing my frantic face.

"Ben just asked me out on..." I paused before I finished, "...a date." I finished and she smiled big.

"Nice." Doug whispered to himself but I heard and I'm pretty sure Evie did too.

"We can handle this." She told me then turned back to doug. "Bye." we then started walking off towards her and Mal's room. "You're looking a little pale."

"Of course." I agreed knowing it was probably because of how nervous I was.

"I can fix that with some gloss and blush." She told me and I nodded not wanting to argue with her, "Grace, I could also use the-" I cut her off before she could finish.

"Whatever you use is fine just help me!" I pleaded as she grabbed my arm and ran up to her dorm.

Okay, easy on the blush. I don't wanna scare him away." I told Evie with a little laugh behind it. "Not that I could." I added thinking about the spell.

"Please, My mom taught me how to apply blush before I could talk." Evie told me as she got some more blush on the brush. "Always use upward strokes."

"My dad obviously doesn't know about makeup and the Queen of Hearts doesn't give good makeup tips." I informed Evie as she laughed a little. "I never had a sister.."

"Well, now you do. We're going to need all the family we can get if we don't pull this off." Evie told me as I sighed just thinking about it. "My mother's not a barrel of laughs when she doesn't get her way, just ask Snow White."

"Are you afraid of her?" I questioned Evie as she finished up my lip gloss.

"Sometimes." She answered. "Are you afraid of your dad?"

I thought for a moment, "I just want him to be proud of me." I responded, "He gets so angry when I don't do what he wants me to." I added looking down.

"Okay, moving on from that." Evie said Happily. "Come see."

"Are we done?" I questioned as she pulled me up.

"Yeah." She nodded as she drug me in front of a mirror.

"Wow." I whispered looking at myself. My hair had been recurled, and Evie done my makeup better than I ever have.

"I know." Evie agreed as she looked in the mirror behind me..

"I look...-" I cut myself off not really wanting to sound like Audrey in this moment.

"Say it." Evie urged me with a smile as she fixed my hair a bit.

"Not hideous." I finished my sentence as I admired myself in the mirror one last time.

"Not even close." Evie told me and we were cut off by a knock on Evie and Mal's door. Knowing it was Ben I walked forward and opened the door with a small smile on my face.

"For the first time, I understand the difference between pretty and beautiful." He said when I opened the door and he got a good look at me. I blushed and looked down at the floor then back up at him. "I hope you like bikes." He added as my eyes widens and Evie pushed me out the door. He handed me a helmet and we went outside and got on it.

I was hoping that my nerves wasn't going to get the best of me.

Another A/N:

I'm sorry it's short but here is a chapter and the date will be in the next chapter. I wanted to have an update for you all but I don't have time to do a longer one because I have to go to a baby shower. But, again, thanks for understanding on why I didn't update :)
