The Tempo Changes

She was glad to have him back out on the dance floor. There was something special about this night, about him. Watching the lights dance playfully around his face, she began to notice how much he’s changed.

They had grown up together. She thought she knew him, but looking at him now she began to wonder. Did she really know him? She hadn’t seen him much this past year. For the first time they hadn’t had classes together.

She smiled at him. They continued dancing. The crowd swirled around them, but she barely noticed. She didn’t want this night to end.

The music slowed and the crowd began to thin. He took her hand and looked into her eyes. As she looked into his eyes, the music seemed to fade away.
