She could still hear the faint tickling of the ivories. She still remembers the way her dress fell around her like a waterfall in silk, the color of the forest in full summer, her fiery hair swept up in that careless way, strands escaping to frame her cheeks. She can still see him, dressed in that tux with his tie undone, the first few buttons on his shirt opened to the cooling night air.
Whispers of the melodic music that somehow lifted her soul, made her light on her feet came to her once more as she closed her eyes to dream. Sense memory took over and suddenly his hand was again on her hip, gently gliding with her around the room, his presence so strong she felt his sweet breath on her shoulder making her pulse do that stutter step that stole the breath from her lungs just as it had every day since they met.
Another day faded into night as she dreamed of that first dance, that first time she knew she was home.
