Dancing #27


Helega reappeared as the music began and my eyes were drawn from the multitude of all the other graceful, beautiful dancers to her. I watched her as she took my friend's hand and led him into the middle of the room. She was entrancing, and I was pleased for him for she appeared as taken with him as he was with her.
Then a lady perhaps twice my age, perhaps older, requested a dance. For a moment I considered politely refusing, but that would not do, not on this night of merriment. We danced whilst the music weaved around us.
