Lost to the rhythm and beat of the music, Faye was startled to suddenly find herself off the floor and in Dag’s arms and then back down again. She laughed and gazed up at him. “What was that for?” she asked over the din, her lips still tingling from his impromptu and intense kiss.

“Because I can!” he said over the music. “I’m going to get drinks!” he said and made the universal gesture for raising a drink to one’s lips, and then began making his way to the bar, the crowd moving or being moved as he waded through the press of people.

As he walked away, Faye was flummoxed despite the wide grin on her face. She watched for a moment before she herself left dance floor, but only to go over to the DJ and make a request. It was probably something that happened all the time, as the DJ just bobbed their head at her and Faye assumed that was a yes. And that he heard the right song.

Broke down, thought that I would drown
[As The song started, Faye made her way back to where her and Dag had been, but she was twisting on the ball of each foot as she went, which made her sway in time to the music as she paused on the beat]
Hope that I’ve been found, ‘fore I hit the ground
Sun rays out the corner of my eye, hey
Saw you weeping, saw you creeping
Saw you sneaking in the shadow’s dawn
I feel so strong
Saw you out the corner of my eye

Don’t come for me today
Pivoting on the ball of one foot, she spun a syncopated motion, her right arm outstretched, the spin extending out through the verse]
I’m feeling good
I’mma savor it
Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good
I remember when
(Reaper)

Into the chorus she broke out into a smooth sort of pop n’ lock hip hop, her movements punctuating the music and all joined together in in smooth motions. By this point, the others at the club had given her a bit of space and Faye ignored everyone (even Dag), and if she were to describe it to others, she’d have said she was one with the music again, as corny as it might have sounded.

Daggum watched her move as he stood to the side with the others. A group of three men, two human and a Annari, seemed particularly interested in her movements, and one made a comment that caused Daggum’s head to slowly turn and stare at them. An elbow to the ribs of the speaker and a glance at the massive Orion caused the three to move away from the dance floor and back to the bar as Daggum’s attentions went back to Faye.

You came to take me away
So close I was to heaven’s gates
But no baby, no baby, not today
Oh, you tried to track me down
You followed me like the darkest cloud
But no baby, no baby, not today
(Reaper) oh reaper
(Reaper) oh no baby, no baby, not today
(Reaper) oh reaper
(Reaper) oh no baby, no baby, not today

So come back when I’m good to go
I got drinks to drink, and men to hold
I got good things to do with my life, yeah
Oh, I wanna dance in the open breeze
Feel the wind in my hair, hear the ocean sing
I got good things to feel in my life, yeah

Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good
I’mma savor it
Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good
I remember when
(Reaper)

You came to take me away
So close I was to heaven’s gates
But no baby, no baby, not today
Oh, you tried to track me down
You followed me like the darkest cloud
But no baby, no baby, not today
(Reaper) Oh reaper
Oh no baby, no baby, not today
(Reaper) Oh reaper
Oh no baby, no baby, not today
Reaper
Reaper
Reaper
Reaper

Faye let the song drift off and , breathing heavily, let her gaze shift to Dag and gave him a giant grin as she moved closer with a hand out to take whatever drink he’d gotten for her.

Daggum smiled and handed her a frothy yellow drink with streaks of deep crimson through it. “Masdey fruit juice for my lady.” he said with an inclination of his head.
