I was trembling when I stepped back in to class. Shane spotted me and got up; luckily it was the end of the lesson anyway, and everyone was already moving. I went straight to Shane and she wrapped her arms round me, kissing the top of my head comfortingly.
"It's ok, it's ok. What happened?"
"He almost hit me. But he stopped."
"That...little...I am gonna kill that ba****d!"
"Shane, this has gone on way too long already. The guy is allowed to have a crush, it's not his fault."
"I'm not having him..."
"Shane. If this goes on one more minute longer, I will avoid both of you." She looked shocked, but then consented. "Come on then, I want to show you something."
She followed me to the dance studio.
"We have an hour before dinner, so I thought I'd show you my dancing."
"Really? There's nothing else you'd rather be doing?" I grinned at her suggestive tone.
"I can think of one thing, but I think twice in three hours is practically asking the teachers to find us."
"Alright then, show me what you've got."
