He handed both of them a soda then took a swig from the bottle he was holding.

“Not a bad dance for a church do said Paul to Estelle.’

“They hold one each week.’ It’s mainly to raise money for the church but the community get together which is good too.

“Have you two danced yet then?’

“No, Estelle has been introducing me to all of her friends.’

 “No time like the present Norman said Paul.’

“Would you care to dance said Norman to Estelle in his poshest English accent.’

“Don’t mind if I do.’

“You dance very well Norman.’

 No, I think I’ll be fine on my own. I can take care of myself you know, I have a black belt in karate.’

“I better not make any sudden moves then.’

“Well I was hoping that you would actually.’

Once outside of the church Paul pulled her into a dark corner of the church grounds and kissed her.’

“Why Paul Grant the lord will never forgive you.’

“Looks like I’m forever damned then he whispered as he kissed her again this time more passionately.
