Dancing had never been your forte. There were way too many things involved in it: arms, legs, torso, hips – there was no possible way for you to do all of that at the same time, and for it to look good. You wholeheartedly commended those who could – such as your girlfriend, Cheryl.
At the present moment, you were sitting cross-legged on the floor of an empty room in Thornhill, watching as Cheryl moved about in various intricate and complex ways before you. She always appreciated having you present when she practiced new cheer routines. She trusted your opinions to be honest, rather than either of her mindless lackeys, or anyone else who either feared her, or just didn’t care (her parents being the latter).
What always awed you about Cheryl was how different she was when it was just the two of you. In public, she was harsh to everyone around her, and although she was never that way with you, she was still nowhere near as kind and considerate as when you two were alone. She was constantly doting on you – “Is the room too hot, or too cold?” “Are you comfortable?” “Are you hungry?” “Is my music too loud for you?” – no matter how often you assured her that if you needed anything, you would let her know. You didn’t mind, though; you knew it was her way of letting you know that she cared.
“Are you sure you don’t want a chair?” Cheryl inquired as she took a brief recess from her practice. The rise and fall of her chest was pronounced as she attempted to regain her breath, and her long, red haired ponytail was now messy, some strands sticking to her forehead with sweat. The skin-tight shorts she wore were enough to make your mind go blank, and the lacking length of them didn’t help, either.
“Oh, really, don’t mind me. I’m just enjoying the view,” you responded, leaning back on your hands with a sly smirk.
Cheryl rolled her eyes, but you could see a smile tugging at the corners of her red lips.
