“I’m not sure I have plenty of things to do. I will decide what I am going to do tomorrow; I will see what I am in the mood to do. I never find it difficult to keep myself busy. We are quiet again, I take a deep cleansing breath and sit straight in my chair, "Mark, I have had a lovely time, and it was so nice meeting you, but it has been a long day; I think it is time for me to say goodbye, and head back to the hotel ".
I slide over the seat to the end, stand up and grab my bag. Mark slides over at his side and stands in front of me, we are so close I can smell his aftershave, he smells so wonderful. If it is possible for a man to be beautiful, Mark is. And once again I feel my heart race.
“After you” Mark says holding is hand towards to entrance. I walk towards the exit, just a step or two in front of Mark. In the back ground, a song I love comes on; BRUNO MARS 'JUST THE WAY YOU ARE'. I close my eyes, "Oh I love this song" I say in a breath, just above a whisper.
“Dance with me Megan.” Mark takes my hand in his, pulling me to a stop.
"Here?" I look around the room. I notice no one else dancing, yet Mark turn towards me, our eyes once again fixed...."Yes Megan, here, and now."
