Jessi was in the mood to dance all night long. Dancing was her
real passion, outside of photography, and her way of relaxing,
which she didn't do very often. When she was dancing, whether it
was line dancing, salsa, or belly dancing, she was able to push
all her fears, worries, and troubles away.
However, that was not the case tonight. She had danced salsa

Josue's bright green eyes stared down at her, making her even
more nervous. "Okay," he said releasing her arm.
She winced and rubbed her arm. She gave him a fake smile as they
walked over to the table. She only hoped the five men would play
