Cameras click as Alyssa smiles and twirls in her long, satin gown. The fabric moves with her, spilling over her perfectly pedicured toes as she strides down the red carpet. The paparazzi are snapping her every move.
She smiles and waves as her crown gleams from the light, her entourage of friends following closely behind. For Alyssa, the night she’ll always remember is only just beginning.
But the paparazzi aren’t the only ones waiting for her. Inside the hotel, Alyssa gasps with surprise when she finds her friends, family and teachers anxiously awaiting her arrival. Music is blaring, people are clapping, friends are singing. She can’t believe her eyes as she looks around … a fountain is pouring streams of liquid chocolate next to a bowl of strawberries, and a large dance floor sits open in front of the DJ booth. Behind it, a large screen shows pictures from Alyssa’s past – a battle against leukemia that she is determined to win.
That’s why tonight is her night. Tonight is all about Alyssa and creating something that will give her the courage and willpower to keep fighting. Her illness won’t keep her down. She’s sure of it – especially with the memory of her most magical night to keep her going along the way.
