"Yeah, dance. You know..when two people get together during music, hold hands, sway and move their feet a little." He raised a brow, surprsised by what seemed to be fear. "You won't step on me."

"I mean, you can try." She gave a soft, nervous laugh, shrugging lightly. "But if I manage to make us look like idiots, you're welcome to give up."

"YOu won't." He shook his head, reaching out ot hold a hand to her, waiting for her to take it, giving her the chance to back out.

"You might regret this." She was sure that the alcohol was keeping her from backing down, taking his much larger hand in hers. She was sure that after tonight he would never speak to her again. He'd come to his senses, leave her in her dead-end life and go back to his own...why not live a little?

With a smile, he pulled her to his chest, moving onto the dancefloor as his arm wrapped around her waist. He moved his free hand to grasp her's gently, keeping her close as he swayed to the music. "See? It's not so bad..."

Her free hand moved to his shoulder, feeling her face heat as she tried to keep from stepping on his feet. "So far, so good...?" She said at last, recalling that the last time that they had been so close, he had shoved her out of the way of a bullet meant for him. "I can't rememer the last time I heard this song..."

He smiled, keeping her close and leading her in the dance with ease. "So far, so good." She seemed almost..nervous. He raised a brow, looking down at her. "Do you like it?"

"The song or the dance?" She asked with a nervous chuckle. "I love this song. And the dance is...pretty okay." She was a little too tense, she found, forcing herself to relax a little into the familiar beat of the song. He was startlingly easy to follow.

"I mean tthe song..but I"m glad to know the dance is 'okay' at the very least." He laughed softly, keeping her close. "Relax your shoulders...it will make it much easier..."

"It's only okay because I'm just waiting to see how I'll mess this up." She admitted with a laugh of her own. Unaware that her shoulders were tensed at all, she felt them drop, trying not to notice how nice his voice sounded when he laughed. "Like this?"

Nodding, he scooped her closer, raising a brow. "Yeah. Like that." As his fingers moved over her hip gently, he watched her. "Are you comfortable with me?"

"If it were anyone but you, I probably wouldn't have agreed." She admitted, nodding at the question and trying to ignore the way her heartbeat picked up as he pulled her closer.

He chuckled lowly, watching her closely at her words. After a moment, he cleared his throat. "You wouldn't have agreed if it was a dashing stranger that asked you to dance instead?"

"Probably not. At least with you I know you probably won't make fun of me if I crash and burn." The more she spoke, the less she focused on her feet, moving with him with greater ease.

"If you crash and burn it's because I wasn't doing my part of this." He shrugged, smiling down at her. "As long as you're on your feet, I"m doing well."

"Then you're a success so far." She laughed, the steps almost effortless as she focused more on his nearness, how small her hands were in comparison to his, the familiar strains of the song.

He smiled at her words, nodding as he held her just a bit closer. After a moment, his hand moved to the small of her back and hegave a soft hum. "You're a natural. Why don't you dance more?"

Her heart jumped again at his touch, flushing at his comment. "I'm...what? I've never danced before today. I have no idea what I'm doing."

"Maybe I should teach you more later." He smiled, fingers brushing her spine gently. "Or...I could have my littel brother teach you. He'd be much better at it. EH's a choreographer."

"You have a brother?" She raised an eyebrow, trying to stifle a shiver at his touch. "I take it he's the reason you know as much as you do?" She added with a smile of her own.
