Two months before the wedding…
“Greg I want to do something special for our first dance,” said Samantha.
He looked at her with a question in his eyes. “Like what?”
“I found a video on YouTube and I want to do what this couple did.”
“Let me look at it, but I’m telling you right now, I’m not doing ‘Thriller’ for our first dance.”
“It’s definitely not Thriller.”
Samantha went to her computer, “My cousin Caroline emailed it to me as a suggestion.”
“That’s the one in Arkansas, the nurse?”
“She has good taste.”
Samantha clicked on a saved link in her wedding spreadsheet, and it began.
Greg sat in the office chair while Samantha stood behind him with her hand on his shoulder.
When it was over with, both had smiles on their faces.
“That guy looked so happy.” Greg stood and turned drawing Samantha into his arms. “We’ll have to practice.”
“Yes.” She reached up and wrapped her hands around his neck and pulled him down for a kiss. A long kiss.
“We need the music.” Greg whispered in her ear.
“I already have it.”
Greg drew back, “You knew I’d say yes?”
“I knew you would like to look super cool on the dance floor.”
“You know me too well. Super cool is my game. I’ll have to remember to get a black shirt to the reception hall and you’ll need a short white dress.”
“It’s on the spreadsheet.”
Greg laughed, “Well, let’s get started. I need to get those steps down.”
“I just want to look as happy as that couple does.”
“We are happy together. Today. Tomorrow. Forever.” Greg kissed Samantha again, sealing his vow.
