He stepped towards me, offering no bow as an invitation to dance and no opportunity for me to reply in kind. I could not move as his right arm made its way around my waist. His devious half-smile grew, revealing the shallow dimple on his left cheek. I looked up at the ceiling, and each of my eyes released a solitary tear, my soul’s protest, absorbed by the fabric of my masquerade mask. The deejay cued up a waltz. The beautiful one gently pulled me away from my emotional support column. Notes of marijuana and sweetened Jäger rode out on the breath of his lingering New York accent as he placed his lips near my ear and said, “Please, just one dance.”
The warmth of his breath sent chills down my neck, and deep from within, my soul let out a scream. Was it from the thrill and excitement of him being so close? Or was it my recaptured strength and firm resolve leaving my body? The heat radiating from him and the yearning in his voice kept me frozen while his left hand slid down my gloved arm and took up my hand.
