    Act 1, Scene 4, Song 9

    It was the weekend, which meant it was a time to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and just spend some quality time together. This weekend, Sandra and George had decided to keep it simple. A picnic at the park next to the pond, what could me more relaxing? The conversation with Emilio a few days prior had initially shaken Sandra. The feeling of ‘what if’ had thrown her off, but the truth was that down inside, she knew this was the right thing; her and George. It was always interesting to her that while Emilio had been her first real love and may have taught her so much, it was George who had overwhelmingly captured her heart. It surprised her when it first happened, but she knew now that sometimes these things just happen. No need to question it, just enjoy it for the amazing truth that it is. For his part, George was deeply in love with Sandra. He had met her at a friend’s barbecue. It just so happened that this friend and Sandra were co-workers. Well, needless to say that the attraction was immediate and he knew that, succeed or fail, he had to try and get to know her. He had been persistent but luckily not to the point of being annoying. Surely enough, he soon convinced Sandra to go on a date and now they were going to be married. The thought always put a smile on his face.

    On one side you, asking me for a night of love
    On the other side there’s me, fleeing round the usual corner

    And you, flooding my dreams, you
    Peeking round my corner, you
    Disturbing the calmness, you
    Appearing in my life, you

    While I’m out shopping I remember him
    Words of days gone by
    A wrong turn….

    To give you my life I’d return
    From the fires of that love I used to dream of
    To give you my life I’d return
    Flying on a star and be reborn in you
    To give you my life I’d return

    On one side you, erasing my doubts with your eyes
    On the other side there’s me, taking that love offered to me

    And you, holding my hand, you
    Burned into my mind, me
    Looking for a shortcut
    Lost in other times

    To give you my life I’d return
    From the fires of that love I used to dream of
    To give you my life I’d return
    Flying on a star and be reborn in you
    To give you my life I’d return

    The dizzying effect of love was in control of them. The future was bright and together, they would face anything head on. Of course, Sandra had felt that way before and it had not ended in the best of ways. Could it, would it happen again? She knew she couldn’t live in fear of that, because that would just make things at a disadvantage to begin with. The thought came and went but it had its effect. For the first time there was some doubt in her mind, one that she was going to have to eventually confront.

    Sigan bailando!
