Dancing

‘Shall we dance?’ he said and together they fell into step, dipping, stretching, and gliding across the burnished boards. The music engulfed them as they pirouetted and twirled, she under his arm, then he under hers. They saw nothing else, felt nothing else but the rhythm and the blood pounding in their veins.

He pulled her close, his arms encircling her and her heart beat faster as their bodies touched, his chest against hers, his thighs pressed to hers, one hand on the small of her back, guiding her, just so, just so. She wanted to dance forever, for the moment never to end.

She gazed into his eyes, saw her passion reflected there. Her lips parted, he bent his head to hers and the music swelled as it came to a climax.


The little girl shut the lid of the music box and went to have her tea.

  12. I think that's what's called an anti-climax! Didn't spoil my enjoyment of it though!

  15. Modern doors never seem to close like that anymore...I did wonder what you were up to from the beginning. A great "Gotcha"!
