(Here's chapter number 2. Thanks to Martin Seamus McFly, just a fanfic fan, and fatlip565 for reviewing chapter 1. I have redone my 3rd, 4th and 5th chapters in my "Dog Eat Spy" story. If you have some time to all you readers, please check it out and review it.)

5:41 p.m. -- My room

"You mean to tell me that you don't know how to dance and didn't want to live to tell me?" Sam asked.

"Unfortunately yes," I said coldly.

"You don't have to know how to dance romantic-like to go to a dance. You could just show off your own moves and I'll just bust a move with my own moves," Sam suggested.

"Even though I'm still afraid to show off my moves in public, I'll give it a shot. I'll go with you, unless I have something to do with my parents," I said.

"Great!" Sam said, looking excited.

"One more thing: I can't do the dirty worm at the dance because then I'm gonna hurt my stomach and my chest because my stomach and chest touch the ground for a split second." I pointed out.

"Can you show me a sample?" Sam asked.

"Uh, okay," I said. I took to my bed and lay down with my stomach touching the sheets. I used my body to move like a worm up and down.

"Not too bad. You're right, I think you will hurt your stomach and chest on the ground at the dance." Sam assumed.

"Now do you see why I'm not so certain about showing off my dance moves in public?" I asked.

"Yes I do, but you're still going, right?" Sam asked.

"Mm-hmm," I assured her.

An hour later, the girls took their showers at my place and I got dressed as well as the girls after their showers for the dance. Sam wore a long pink dress that went all the way down to her ankles. Clover wore a long blue dress that went down to her ankles, Alex wore a long purple formal that went down to her ankles, and for me, I wore one of my regular Chevy Trucks Kawasaki T-shirt with Ivan Tedesco's last name on the back and underneath it was a 29, and also some long black pants and I only wore a pair of beach-like slippers.

"Are you ready?" Sam asked.

"This is his first time going to a dance?" Clover and Alex asked.

"Mm-hmm. He has never been to a dance before in his life. He told me." Sam explained.

Alex and Clover both went wide-eyed.

"Are you serious, Mathew?" Clover asked.

"Mm-hmm," I responded.

We all took outside to Sam's car and she drove us to the school cafeteria where the school dance was being held.

7:07 p.m. -- Beverly Hills High Cafeteria

Sam, Clover, Alex and I all sat at a table for 4 and we just had something to drink. Sam and Clover had a strawberry smoothie, Alex had a small orange smoothie, and I had a small Pepsi.

Everyone that was attending was up and dancing, except the four of us. The song that was playing wasn't really one of my favorites. An hour later, I heard one of my all-time favorite songs. It was "Here I am" by UB 40.

I decided to stand up and dance. This time, I wasn't scared to show off my dance moves because the song that was on was one of my favorites. I did the water sprinkler dance I had learned on TV. I put my left hand behind my head, and started to turn a full 360 degree right turn while sticking out my right arm. The girls were astounded at what I was able to do and not feel embarrassed. I had conquered my fear of dancing in public.

"Fear nothing, that guy can really get into a real funky groove," Alex said.

"That's our Mathew," Sam said.

I was even singing the song as well as showing off my dance moves.

"Not a bad singer either," Clover quipped.

"He's good," Sam said as she started to sigh in love.

She decided to stand up and dance with me, but danced her own way.

Clover and Alex decided to join Sam and me in our dances, but they all danced their own ways.

Every one of us had a wonderful time, as we walked outside of the school to Sam's car to drive back to my house. It was a little chilly as the temperature was about in the mid 70s. While she drove, she said to me, "I thought you were afraid to show off your dane moves in public, Mathew,"

I stammered, but I finally said, "I'm afraid to show off my dance moves in public, unless that the song I hear is one of my all-time favorites and in that case, that one was one of my all time favorites." I explained.

"What song was being played?" Clover asked.

"That was 'Here I am' or 'Come and Take me' from UB 40." I said.

"UB 40? Isn't that a Spanish kind of band?" Sam asked while the cool breeze ran through her orange auburn hair.

"I don't think so, Sam," I responded.

12:38 a.m. -- My House

We all arrived at my house in Sam's car, and we were really tired. I still hadn't taken a shower yet.

"Why don't you shower in the morning, Mathew?" Sam suggested.

"No, I think I can last a little longer to take my shower," I said, trying to stay tough.

"Should we get him a coke to get him to stay awake so he can take his shower?" Clover asked.

"That sounds like a pretty good idea, Clover, but if I do drink another coke, then I probably wouldn't be coming to bed until almost 1 in the morning," I pointed out.

"Mathew's got a good point, Clover," Sam said.

"Maybe I ought to drink the coke, Sam. It takes me at least 4 minutes to shower and get dressed, and besides, I'm really thirsty," I said.

"Why don't we get a drink of water, watch a little bit of TV, and then go to sleep," Alex suggested.

"That's a great idea, Alex," Sam said happily.

As the 4 of us walked into my house, we went to the kitchen to get 3 cups of water for them, and a soda for me. I took a few fast sips, washed the can, threw it away, went to my room, grabbed my sleepclothes, walked to the bathroom and took my shower. The caffeine in the coke is what kept me awake.

The girls finished their water and changed their clothes. Sam wore her long pink nightgown, Clover wore a long blue nightgown, Alex wore a long green nightgown, and I wore a Hangtown MX Honda T-shirt with Steve Lamson's last name on the back and underneath it was a 6. It was almost 1 a.m. as we climbed into my bed and went to sleep.

The End

(That's it. I think I'll get a few good reviews in this chapter. No flames allowed please. I have another idea for another fanfiction. Hope you'll review that one when I post it. Here's a little hint: it's another game show -- pretty recent too -- year is 2001. See you again.)
