You’ve courted your sweetheart for almost a year now. You had no lofty expectations. Maybe, just maybe she’d come to the dance with you. She has a history that girl. And she’s a tease too. She kept you waiting. She had mood swings – in December you would’ve thought she’d be the queen of the dance with you but then she stuttered. Till finally, a few weeks ago, she said ‘yes’.
And after the weeks of waiting, tonight’s the big night – the first date, the first dance. Deep down, in your hearts of hearts you know she is the one. Statistically, she may not be the top notch but loving her meant you defied logic long ago. Others are just waiting for her to dump and chase you away so they can crush her. But in your mind, she’s the one who puts a ring on the finger.
That’s thinking too far ahead though. There’s many a ways to go, four hurdles to cross. And it is now that you realize, no matter what the outcome at the coming dance, this is the best time you’ll have together.
A kiss is all you want, but sometimes, the best of times – the anticipation, the want, the electricity is in those few milliseconds just before your lips lock. These few hours before you and before you take the dance floor is that time.
