The strains of the old song wafted out over the streetside cafe. Maddie couldn’t help herself.
“Oh, we have to dance!” she trilled, eyes sparkling.
“What? Here? Now?” Peter laughed. Still, he, too, could feel the pull of the song. How, after all, could he resist Maddie’s entreaty?
Maddie rose, pulling Peter up towards her. They melded into a gentle, slow swaying dance, meandering among the tables, oblivious to the startled onlookers. A waitress gently skirted them to bring an order out.
The song came to a close. The couple looked up, surprised, as the cafe erupted in happy applause.
Thank you, Eugenia, at Eugi’s Causerie, for this happy prompt, “dance,” and the accompanying photo (apologies for using just a portion)!
