Salsa With A Stranger

Couples floated across the dance floor, flowing over each other.

Someone said,

“Up close with a stranger. You sure?”

She said,

“I want to learn.”

He smiled.

They were the last couple on the floor. Melting into each other. Then the music stopped. She walked off the floor, leaving him standing.

The lesson was over.

  1. Great! The idea-smithy is never short of these ideas, eh?

    But I guess the someone who asked the question first and the stranger were not the same people. Or did I get it entirely wrong?

    Sudipta: Thank you! I hope this blog continues to live up to that image.

    ‘Someone’ represents the conflict she faces in her own head, which is resolved at the end of the story.
