Dancing #13

I don't recall which regiment he'd served in, but at one time he'd fought within thirteen miles of my own. He'd served with bravery and distinction, too, yet like myself when the conflict ended he was happy to throw down the sword.
The sun was almost gone when we finished our introductions and, almost unspoken, decided we'd make camp for the night in the very spot we met.
Two tents and a campfire later and we had eaten well and bade each other Good night and Sleep well as the Milky Way waltzed slowly and unstoppably across the everlasting blackness.

    Now that's one thing I won't do. I'll do anything once (twice if I'm dared) but not dancing!
