Love tonight

"I can see what's happening. And they don't have clue." Jimena sighed, watching Serena dance, slowly moving closer to a brooding boy. Jimena guessed Serena didn't even know who it was.

"Who?" Catty asked, scanning the room. Serena took his hand and pulled him with her to the dance floor. He went almost too willing.

"They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line: Our quarto's down to tres." Jimena went on. She'd seen it weeks ago.

A slight 'Oh' escaped Vanessa and Catty's lips.

"The sweet caress of twilight; there's magic everywhere." Jimena continued complaining.

"And with all this romantic atmosphere, disaster's in the air?" Catty asked. Jimena nodded slightly, returning to watch Serena dance.

'Can you feel the love tonight, the peace the evening brings?' The words floated across Serena's mind. She smiled, wrapping her arms around his neck, reading his thoughts briefly. He looked familiar, but she couldn't remember ever knowing a Stanton. At least that's what his mind said his name was, which didn't mean he didn't go by it. It was just unlikely.

'The world for once in perfect harmony with all its living things.' Serena thought, moving closer to Stanton.

'So many things to tell her, but how to make her see the truth about my past? Impossible. She'd turn away from me.' He thought, his hands now on her hips.

'He's holding back, he's hiding. But what? I can't decide. Why won't he be the king I can see he is. The king I see inside.' Serena thought smiling up at him.

'Can you feel the love tonight, the peace the evening brings?' He thought again, moving one hand up to her amulet. Serena practically jumped back as his fingers brushed it. She watched him nervously, a small burn was already healing on his index finger. With his uninjured hand he took hers, pulling her closer. Both with his eyes and with his hand. "The world for once in perfect harmony with all it's living things." He whispered in her ear softly. "Can you feel the love tonight? You needn't look too far. Stealing through the night's uncertainties, love is where you are." He had his hands back on her waist, his eyes watching her, protectively not predatory in the least.

"And if she falls in love tonight, it can be assumed. Her carefree days with us are history. In short Serena is doomed." Jimena sighed, shaking her head.
