THE QUICK STEP by Kelly Woller

” But darling, I love you!”

” Do you really expect me to believe that, you cheating scoundrel?”

” Trust me when I say it’s over”

” She’s here isn’t she? You had the audacity to call her to the party! Do you

take me to be a fool?”

” Honey, it had been a tough year for all of us.”

” Alright, I’m willing to put it all behind us. I can see the longing in your

eyes….Go on, ask her for one last dance. I promise to look away”

” But darling….” ” Just  do it. Now smile like nothing ‘s wrong, my mother is

walking towards us”

” Good evening Mrs Davis, would you care to dance?”
