The Last Dance
The couple passes each other on the sidewalk. They lean on their canes for support as they go on about their day. Jared stops, and turns to look at the aging woman walking. He smiles and turns to catch up to her as best he can. She looks familiar from her bouncing step.
“Mary?” He calls out.
She slowly turns around.
“Jared?” Mary looks and notices it’s her old dance partner.
They smile and stand quiet for a long moment. Jared then reaches out his hand. Mary quickly takes the offer.
“One last dance?”
“More like…a new beginning.” Mary grins.
