He warned me

I don’t dance.

I laughed and said

I’ll teach you.

He shook his head

Others have tried.

I promised

You’ll have extra incentive.

He grinned

Try it.

I put my arms around him and his around me and he stumbled and
laughing I helped him and he pulled me off balance and kissed me and
we fell to the ground

And we danced!

So tell me

Who won?
