Let's Go Dancing

 Chapter 1

Do you ever have that moment when you feel like everything will be alright and then it just flips on you? Well if you haven’t then you’re about to find out how it feels, and if you have you get to understand and experience it with me. I was in a hospital and had been struggling with leukemia for the last six years. I was getting different ideas from all sorts of different people who really had no idea what they were talking about.

  You see I had been told that I was a miracle and lucky to still be alive. I had others telling me that I was going to die very soon. Which one do you think I believed? Of course me being me I believe the most negative one. Finally this was the day I was being uncharged after all this time they told me to just go home and live my life.

  “Your just letting me go? No medications or anything?”

  “We are sorry to tell you this but...you’re going to die. “The doctor said.

  “....How long do I have?”

  “About four months. “The doctor said.

  “I just get to have a normal life? I don’t have to come in at all?”

  “Not unless you start getting sick. “The doctor said.

  “Well ok then I guess this is bye.”

As I headed for the door the doctor said something that got my attention.

  “Leslie.....it’s been an honor to be around you all these years.”

Then she walks away...I never forgot those words.

  I was just listening to the music just thinking....I realized after all this time I was going to die. Then here I was having a drink.

  “Hey you know that drink isn't going to drink itself, it does take a little effort. “Amy said

  “....Thanks Amy I'll keep that in mind.”

  “Just trying to cheer you up that’s all. “She said.

  “How did you know I was upset?'

  Leslie, I’ve know you since we were sixteen it doesn’t take a lot to know when my best friend is upset. Now you want to tell me why?”

  Your my best friend can’t you figure it out?”

  “I’m your best friend not a mind reader.”

  “I’m dying.”

She was trying to cover it I could tell, but just for a second I saw that flicker that I had only seen one other time. When I told her I had cancer. It’s like a flicker of shock, fear, and sadness. The next words she said had no joke to them.

  “You have been a great friend you know that?”

  “It’s the same to you.”

  “How long do you have?

  “About four months, want to spend it with me?”

  “Sure....maybe you should just try going on one date.”

  “No...I would much rather spend my time with my best friend.”

  “Thanks, well I have to get back to work. I will talk to you later.”

  “Kay.”

  “Are you going to stay here for a while?”

  “Yeah, what better place to spend my last days.”

I just sat there and thought about how little I had accomplished. How I was sad about that and sad about Amy but besides that I didn’t even care anymore. What’s the point of living if you lived it in a hospital bed, which is where I had been living most of the last six years of my life. How could I....

  “Hi.”

I look up and see this guy sitting next to me he has blonde hair its short. He’s wearing a classy black suit and looks as if he's had a hard night. This is what really interests me, he has had such a bad night but still talks and smiles at me like I am the nicest person on Earth.

  “Hi.”

  “My names Will.”

  “Leslie.”

  “Okay Leslie tell me something, what’s a pretty girl like you doing at a bar? He says

  “Having a drink.” I say

  “Yeah but what’s the reason behind that drink? Any girl who is in a bar drinking has a problem, so what’s yours?”

  “Leukemia, what’s yours.”

  “What makes you think I have a problem?”

  “Well you just said anyone in a bar has a problem, so what’s yours?”

  “No I said any girl in a bar has a problem.”

  “That's not true.” I say

  “Fine....I just had some girlfriend issues.”

  “Oh....is it over?”

  “Yeah it’s over. “He says

  “Sorry...I know what it’s like.”

  “Want to go dancing?”

  “What?”

  “You me dancing just say yes.”

  “She would love to. “Amy says

  “Amy!” I say

  “Go on enjoy yourself!”

  “Come on. “He says

Next thing I know he comes over and grabs my hand and were gone. We’re walking down the street it’s probably midnight according to the moon. I hear loud music that never stops and then we stop in a line.

  “Where are we?” I ask

  “Were at Midnight Rush.”

  “What’s that?”

  “A dance club, I told you we were going dancing.”

  “I haven’t danced since high school.”

  “Just make something up you'll be fine.”

  “You’re strange you know that?”

  “Why? “He says

  “You have known me for two minutes and then ask me to go dancing.”

  “What’s so weird about that?”

  “You know nothing about me.”

  “I know you have a friend named Amy. Is that nothing?”

  “..Let’s just go dancing.”
