Usha lit a cigarette as the music started.
“You used to have good music!” She said breathing out, listening to Ben E. King’s Stand by Me, in the empty bar.
“No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid…” she sang. She stood up and went to Josh, taking his hand.
“Forget it” he snapped. “I’m not dancing.”
“I can force you, you know.”
“It’s the only way for me to dance.”
And suddenly Josh stood up and took her hand, put one on her back and started dancing.
Matt started laughing.
“I’ll deal with you later!” Josh said to his brother.
But Matt found himself standing as well. He went over to Marie, and started dancing,
Usha smiled as she danced and finished her cigarette.
“I really don’t know what happened to good manners” she said winking to Marie. She blushed at looked at her feet as she danced with an embarrassed Matt.
Usha smiled. A good drink, a cigarette and good music, was a perfect way to end the day.
