Prompt: Dance

Dance The Night Away

People mill about the club, but nobody’s dancing. The DJ isn’t great, and nobody wants to be that one person on the floor – at least not for long enough to start a trend. Even though there are plenty of people here, most of them stand alone, waiting for friends who said they’d be here by now but aren’t. Sometimes someone tries to start a conversation with a stranger, but this always ends in awkward silence.

You have no way of knowing how long you’ve been here, but you’re starting to wish you’d gone to church more while you were alive.
