AN: Real life has been quite involved lately. Here's a brief update to keep things moving along. I do plan on finishing this in soon.
Maura was in heaven. Night Fever was one of her favorite songs and she'd found a great dance partner in a man that matched her move for move. When his boyfriend came by with a drink and a kiss, he didn't lose a step. It was fantastic.
"I'm Casey," she leaned in and shouted in her ear.
"Maura," she replied with a smile. To be honest, she didn't' really care what his name was. All that mattered that she had a dance partner that was good.
"I LOVE Donna!" Casey said as Bad Girls began. The crowed seemed to press in as the singer's current hit blasted through the speakers. Maura found herself drifting away from Casey to a tall blonde with striking blue eyes. A model most likely, Maura supposed, and a beautiful one at that.
Donna transitioned into KC and the Sunshine Band and Maura danced away from the blonde. Casey's boyfriend had reappeared on the floor which left the petite blonde dancing by herself for a moment. She quickly lost herself to the music, shaking her booty to the beat.
Jane stood ten feet away held in the mystery woman's thrall. People danced around her but she remained almost motionless, mesmerized by the vision before her. She carried herself with the poise and grace Jane often associated with the women she worked with on a daily basis, but with a touch of street that none of them could carry off. The simple, yet stylish outfit definitely highlighted her physical assets too, which didn't hurt either.
Maura continued to dance by herself as the song changed again into something by Earth, Wind and Fire. She felt eyes upon her and discretely looked around the floor for who was watching her dance. Several men, who she quickly dismissed as gay, caught her attention as she danced further into the crowd. The eyes continued to follow her.
Completing a slow spin she scanned the people around her again and came to an abrupt stop when she locked eyes with fashion icon Jane Rizzoli. The dark haired beauty was on the floor, staring intently at her, barely moving to the pounding beat. Maura's dancing slowed as she made her way over to the taller woman.
Without speaking she began to dance in front of Jane, who slowing began to pick up the beat. "I Want to Be Your Everything" began and Maura smiled up at the taller woman. The petite blonde didn't usually believe in chance, but getting into Studio 54 and being able to dance with the woman she harbored a crush on had to be something more than just a random occurrence.
"I'm Jane," the taller woman said as she pulled Maura in closer.
"I know. Maura Isles."
"Maura," Jane repeated.
The song changed to something by Karen Young as the pair continued to dance. More accurately, Maura continued to dance and Jane swayed to the music as best she could. It didn't really matter since Maura's expert dancing made up for Jane's lack of rhythm. The pair continued on for some time until Jane couldn't take it anymore, she had to actually speak to Maura and get to know her a little.
She leaded forward and pulled the shorter woman close, "come with me." She said, taking Maura's hand.
Nodding, Maura followed Jane off of the dance floor. The music had hit a dull moment and she was ready for a break. After a brief stop at a nearby bar, Jane pulled Maura to a secluded corner away from the dance floor. The music was still going strong but Maura couldn't hear it over the beat of her heart.
