I was not used to dancing, so after I danced to some
tunes, I was out of breath.
"May I rest for awhile?"
We moved away to a place a little distant from the dance circle. The
orchestra began to play some quiet music. The breeze at night felt
good to my heated body.
"Oh, what a lovely night. I just hope this kind
of time would continue forever. I just love it the most when I'm dancing."
"You really look like you're truly having fun when you're dancing."
"When I'm dancing, I'm able to forget about the hard times I'm going through
and about all the things I hate. I can just be my true self only when I'm dancing."
There were big teardrops in her eyes suddenly.I was surprised.
"What's the matter? Why are you crying?"
"No, it's nothing. Please, just don't say anything and just dance with me
We joined back into the dance circle again. Her dance
was much more intense than it was before, and she went wild dancing
as though she was trying to get rid of an evil spirit. She repeated
her jumps many times. Her dance also looked as though she was praying,
too.I wanted to find out the reason why she was crying earlier. And,
I also wanted to soften and lighten her sadness.Somehow, it seemed
as though I was about to fall in love with her.Maybe I'll try to come
up with the courage, and try to confess my feelings for her. But what
am I going to do if she puts me down? I don't want to be hurt, so maybe
I'll just be quiet about it and just stay with her this way, perhaps......
"See, you have a strange look on your face again.
You're thinking about something, aren't you? Things will only turn
out to be as they will be. Here, try a happier look on your face."
It's a bad habit of mine. I am always, just always, too careful. I
think too much, I am unable to do anything. I have to be smiling more.
"Yes, that's it. That smile of yours. It's a wonderful smile, you know."
The Ball had reached its peak around 12 midnight.
