I have a perfectly valid reason for turning Nick down . . . don't I?
Everyone heard Nick (the most popular guy at Raven High) ask Edie (the least popular girl) to the dance. And everyone heard her turn him down. So suddenly she's famous. She's gone from a nobody to a "girl of mystery" overnight. No one, it seems, has ever turned Nick down, and no one's more shocked than Nick himself. But no one, especially Nick, would believe why Edie said no.
