Zoe wished Colin wasn’t averse to any form of dancing with its own set of moves and rules. Okay, so she wasn’t crazy about technique herself. She liked knowing what she was doing, but only because it helped her have more fun when she was out there doing her own thing, breaking the rules she wanted, moving to the rhythm as she felt it in her body and soul. And you could hardly beat dancing with a lead you had chemistry with. With some dance partners, you just clicked. And Jay had been her favorite lead by far. Dancing with someone who cherished the dance, listened to his partner and made every move count…was otherworldly. Combined with attraction, the experience was explosive.
It had been a while for Jay too. Carla, Jay’s fiancée of two months, was more of a salsa person, and Latin beats just didn’t do it for Jay. Naturally, he wouldn’t admit this to a fiancée of Cuban descent.
But as Zoe and Jay got lost in the dance, other thoughts waned. Dancing together kept them firmly in the present - in a moment they were savoring with vigor. The next song was Fever, sung by Elvis. It was one of their mutual favorites - the ultimate combination of romantic and sexy, passionate and playful. The moves got more sensual, and their grip got tighter. And it was getting to them.
When Zoe’s phone vibrated with a message toward the end, she was grateful. Dancing could be the best form of foreplay, especially when done right and performed to the seductive melodies of blues. So dancing with Jay? Not the brightest idea.
“Got to go. He’s downstairs. Thanks for the dance. I’ve missed it.”
“Yeah, me too. Have fun tonight.”
“Thanks. See you tomorrow.”
She grabbed her clutch and walked out of the office.
“Lucky bastard,” Jay thought as he watched her go. Dinner with Zoe. Getting to go home with her…Okay, he had to stop right there. It was not professional. They were partners. They were friends. There were certain lines you didn’t cross, and he was glad for their existence. He had no intention of messing things up. Not again.
