Another Ride - Chapter 6: Remember
James was pacing backstage. He knew he was nervous the first time around. He was absolutely terrified, afraid of screwing up and making a fool of himself. But he survived and even managed to get through ten more weeks of it. So why was he panicking now?
He knew part of it was because of the damn cha cha again. He didn’t know what it was about this dance that freaked him out so much. And part of it was the week one nerves. He had already expected as much. And they were also dancing last tonight. Sharna reminded him that this was a good thing, but he didn’t like the wait. And speaking of Sharna…
That situation wasn’t helping his nerves either. He knew he wanted to be with her. He had that much figured out. But he hadn’t done anything about it yet. He dread the thought of hurting what they already had together. He didn’t want to risk their friendship and distract them from what they were supposed to be doing. He told himself he would wait until this was all over. Wait until everything could be normal. Then they could figure it out.
But eleven weeks was a long time to wait.
