100 Words - First Dance

record label

Halfway through the dance we realized that we grouped together at the far end of the gym. So without any discussion we all got up and started dancing together. No couples, just a group of boys and girls to shy or indifferent to mix with the popular dancers.

Some of us snuck out to be there. Others were dragged there, kicking and screaming. Some knew how to dance. Others didn’t. Nobody cared. We talked like we were all old friends. Then the music stopped. Our first closing time. Goodbyes, hugs and promises were offered. Some were kept. Most were not.
