Chapter 6: I hope you Dance
Lexi spent the entire night in complete and utter ecstasy. She and Danny didn't sit down once; they were dancing the whole night. She couldn't stop moving she was so incredibly happy, it was as though the whole world had been lifted from her shoulders. She didn't even think twice when she saw Andy walk past with Karen, the little blonde freshman who he so often chose over her. Life was too short for her to waste any more time crying tears over Andy Powell. As the night wrapped up, the music slowed down, Kitty walked up on stage.
"Hey everyone," She said, the whole room cheered. Ever since Kitty had played the lead in the school musical a few months before, it was insisted that she sing at everything. "Um, so, a couple of people wanted me to sing, and it took me a while, but I think I picked the right song." She took a deep breath and began to let the words come out of her.
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
Lexi smiled, she knew that this was for her. She started to dance with Danny, when Andy came and tapped his shoulder.
"Do you mind if I steal you date for minute?" He said quietly.
"That's up to her," Danny shrugged.
"It's fine," Lexi said, she needed to talk to him anyway. She let him put his arms around her one last time. "We're in the clear Andy. It came tonight."
"I'm sorry," He said, looking deep into her eyed, "really, for everything."
"I am too," she said, "I should have been honest with you."
"If you had been, I mean if it hadn't come" he said, "I would have, I mean, you wouldn't have been alone in it."
"I know," she nodded.
"It's good though," he said, "I'd be a horrible Dad." She laughed.
"I'm not sure I'd be the best mom right now either." She smiled. "Thanks, Andy."
"For what?" He asked.
"For teaching me how to be strong." She said, as Kitty finished singing she kissed him on the cheek. "Good bye Andy."
"So do you still hate proms?" Julian said, as Kitty walked down.
"No," Kitty said, "Actually this was great. Thank you, for making me come."
"I knew you'd love it." He laughed. "So did we finally beat the being our parents thing down?"
"I know my mom would never have done this," she laughed and kissed him, right where everyone could see them. "Also, I'm wearing pink." Julian laughed. "I love you."
"I love you too." He whispered. "How'd we even end up here?"
"Julie asked Luis to go to the prom with her," Kitty smiled, "and he said yes."
