Nic was speechless at first, but shakes his head yes and give a thumbs up.

Jeannie Mayes, Nic’s mother, says he is really excited about the prom that will take place next month.

After posting the video on Facebook, it has been viewed thousands of times and even catching the attention of a local flower shop. The Flower Bar at Lou’s on Oleander Drive says they were so touched by the promposal that they wanted to give the duo a free corsage and boutonniere.
