Of all the songs…

I've always been a sucker for slow, romantic songs. 
So when one came on, and I was dancing in the arms of the one I love, I couldn't stop the tears form springing to my eyes. Lionel pulled my close, my head on his chest, haustoria letting everyone swirl around us. 
Eventually, the world around us faded, and we were the only two left. As the music flowed softly into my ears, I lifted up my head to stare into Lionel's eyes. He had the most beautiful, bluest eyes I've ever seen…
I was lost in those eyes, and my breath caught in my throat. And when he leaned down and kissed me, my brain went into overdrive and my heart pounded wildly out I my chest. When he pulled back and smiled at me, I smiled back at him, but all I wanted was another kiss. 
Slowly, the rest if the world came back into focus as a song I recognized started playing. I glanced up at Lionel, my eyebrow arched. 
"Did you ask them to play this song?" I prodded. 
He grinned and shrugged. "Maybe, maybe not."
I laughed and stood on my toes to kiss him. 
"That's one of the most romantic things a guy has ever done for me."
Of all the songs I'd ever imagine them playing at a junior prom, a Disney song was definitely not on the list. But there I was, a junior in high school, dancing to a song from Lion King. 
Even though it was meant to be a slow, romantic song, I wanted to have fun with it. So as Lionel twirled me around, I sang along with "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," adding my own words here and there just make make Lionel laugh. 
By the end of that song, I was nearly exhausted. I pulled Lionel over to the refreshments stand, grabbed some punch, and headed over to my wheelchair. I barely made it before I collapsed. 
Lionel rolled me over to a table and sat across from me. I took a sip of the punch and once again got lost in his eyes. He leaned over and kissed me, softly, gently, lovingly. He pulled away and smiled at me. 
"You taste like fruit punch." He said. 
I laughed. "I wonder why that is, considering that I just drank some punch."
Daniel and Serina came over and sat at the table with us. The world went on around us as, for once, we sat and talked about absolutely nothing of importance. 

The End
