Anna dancing is always lovely but I loved how she kept spaces for Mr Bates! Thanks for sharing! x

This is a beautiful story! It always makes me so happy when Anna ignores John's injury and figures out other ways for them to be together. Loved this!

I really enjoyed this. The premise was lovely, and you captured all of the characters wonderfully, from Daisy's wide-eyed wonder at everything, to Thomas and O'Brien's snark. Your Anna and John are wonderful. I loved Anna's initial forwardness, and then John playing along with it for the ninth and fourteenth dances. You captured their dynamics so beautifully. The last line was definitely my favourite.

Fabulously written - I especially loved 'Unbidden, an image popped into his head of a way they could possibly be entertained. It unsettled him greatly. That part of him had long lay dormant-he had honestly wondered if all that business was behind him now. Apparently not. He struggled to regain his wits.' What a flawless sentence ...and fic! :-)

I cant believe I havent read and reviewed this story earlier, its absolutely lovely!
... so he quickly attempted to redirect his thoughts.
That attempt took such great effort he failed to notice the very subject of those intractable thoughts as she slid down beside him.
Wonderful line - poor Bates, so inside his head most of the time.
But... I loved how he took Annas bait, you write a wonderful flirting!Bates.

Aw, not fair. What will the diversion be? They could just stand close and sway to the music.

Fluff? No -it has more substance than that; a very charmingly written scene and I also hope you will continue, as you've set this up so well.

Very very cute and well written! And I can totally see Anna and Bates as you've written them. I'm normally not an Anna/Bates shipper, but I'm very glad I read this. Hope you write more stories!

No, Mr Bates. "all that business " is definately not behind you. :)

Oh, that was marvelous! Such a treat on this cold morning. I don't suppose you're going to continue it, are you? Do bribes work? Even if you leave it here, it was absolutely delightful. Thank you!

Aww, lovely. Shame it wasn't a bit longer, but I really enjoyed it.
