Kate Weston had been taken home by her former best friend Ben, after she got super drunk at a party with her friend Stacey. She went over to his house the next day to thank him, but she didn't want to be weird because she thought she was developing feelings.
What are friends for.
After Kate thanked him, they went out for ice cream in the park and talked about his scholarship for Duke. He doesn't know if his mom will allow him to go since his dad left them which left her crazy.
I think she'll be happy for you.
The next day at school, after Ben asked Kate out to the Spring fling and they shared their first kiss, John Donne got arrested for sexual assault.
