The band was playing a Garth Brooks song about running into an old love. How fitting. As promised, Micah was a gentleman as he gracefully led her around the floor. He was a far better dancer than she remembered. As the guitarist sang about how time had changed the former couple in the song, Julia wrapped one arm tighter around Micah’s neck. She wanted to stay mad at him forever but she couldn’t. It felt natural to be in his arms. The arms that were much stronger than the ones that held her at senior prom. She felt the ridges of his chest against the back of her hand when he drew it between their bodies. His heart was pounding furiously under their hands. At least she wasn’t alone.
