The Last Dance

Holding her hand, he led her to the dance floor. The music started and their bodies moved as one. As long as they danced the world ceased to exist.


The music stopped and they came back to reality.


As people applauded, he walked towards his fiance. She knew this dance was their perfect good bye.
