He look at her with a sly smile. Then he put a vinyl record on the phonograph and said, “Let’s dance.”

He forced her into a standing position, took her hand, and twirled her around the kitchen in her house slippers. When the next song began, they continued dancing. When the record was done, they were both smiling.

“Let’s get dressed and go for a walk,” she said.
