‘Gina’s Eyes’ By S.J. Pendergraft

It’s Friday night, and instead of going out, Rick has to stay and help at his family’s optometry store. But then, his crush, Gina, walks in, saying she needs help with her glasses. Rick starts to work, trying very hard (and failing) to be smooth, only for Gina to confide in him about her reservations about the newest glasses for blind people such as herself, as she doesn’t want to hide her eyes just to look normal. Rick replies by fixing her glasses and telling Gina that her eyes are beautiful.
