She was right. I could feel the bass reverberate through my chest like a slow-motion defibrillator. She leaned against me with a disaffected grace and began to sway with the music. Whatever I was holding onto, I let it go there and then. The tension in my neck that had become knotted like old wood unwound and faded away. I let my head fall to one side and swayed with her.
She stood close, like she did last time. But this time I was prepared: I had two layers of underwear on.
She turned around and stood close, looking towards the ground in a playfully shy way.
Who was this girl and what did she want?
The thing with electronic music is that it is all feels and not much thought. If you're in the right mindset it can really carry you to a different place. I felt it move me and in a surge of emotion I did the only thing I knew how to do - I leaned into her for an embrace.
But she was having none of that.
Til this day, I don't know how she did it but she manoeuvred in such a way that we ended kissing and me holding her.
She kissed softly but with a confident willingness.
I had trouble processing it all. My mind was going to overdrive and I thought I was going to faint.
