He swayed, I followed. I was careful not to get too near. His shoes would crush my delicately painted toes.
He raised the hand that clasped mine, throwing off my balance. Instinctively, I leaned closer, my head burrowing into his collar. I felt his warm breath at my ear.
“You act as if you aren’t attracted to me.”

“I must be an exceptional actress then.”
At the final downbeat, I pushed myself away from him, and twirled back into the crowd.
