“Do you want to dance after the announcements?”
It was exactly like a film. And she was the lead actress for once, rather than the best friend.
He had asked her to dance.
As in come up to her in front of everyone and asked her to save him a dance. Had her “Yeah, sure” been calm enough? She was fretting it had been a bit squeaky but he had said “Cool” back, and smiled at her, so that was all right.
