“I was a little pressured,” he said. “Everybody expected me to do it.”
A York, Penn. high school student tried to create a night to remember when he asked Miss America Nina Davuluri to prom during a school assembly, but was instead given a three-day suspension.
Eighteen-year-old Patrick Farves.
The Central York High School senior had already been told by administrators not to perform the stunt, which was rumored to be happening during the assembly.
"At that point in time, it was 10 minutes before the presentation, and I was pretty much set to do it," Farves told the York Dispatch . "I was a little pressured. Everybody expected me to do it. I'm the kind of person who, if someone says I won't do something, I'll prove people wrong. I will."

Despite the warnings, the 18-year-old got up the nerve to ask the beauty pageant winner to prom in front of the whole student body, even bringing a plastic flower to her on stage.
She laughed after Farves ran up to her and asked her to take a selfie with him.
"Maybe later," the 24-year-old New Yorker replied.
After asking her to the dance, Farves broke out in a little jig.
