"Come on, folks! Complimentary dance lessons in the gazebo, and in the ballroom starting in two minutes...!"

"Max!" Greeted Lotus' father as the camp owner came strolling up to them followed by Ryan, the camps dance instructor. Her father outstretched his hand to Max.
"After all these years I finally got you up on my mountain!" They laughed shortly. Ryan shoved his thumbs into the back pockets of his shorts, letting his gaze brush over the family. Snotty-ass rich fuckers, that's what they are. The daughters seem cute though. He smiled a little at the eldest when they made eye contact causing her to flush and look down at her feet.
Lotus' father chuckled. "So how's the blood pressure, Max?"
Max smiled before looking to Lotus and her sister. "I want you girls to know that if it were not for this man, I'd be standing here today," he smiled greatly before shooting Ryan a dirty look. "Ryan get the bags!"
"Right away, sir." Lotus' father tossed him the key to the trunk. He then walked quickly to the back of the car, his arm brushing lightly against Lotus' as he did so. Right now he wore a black sleeveless top as well as a pair of swim trunks and flip flops. His shift didn't start for at least another fifteen minutes. He would be doing dance lessons with his partner, Katie, in the gazebo. "Darling, you and your sister should take up some lessons." Lotus' mother told her, eyeing Ryan deliciously as she did so.

Taking two bags in each hand, Ryan lifted them with ease out of the trunk and then set them on the pavement. Seeing as how Lotus' father was occupied with Max, he turned to Lotus and said "Think fast," before he tossed the keys in lightly in her direction. Then, with a flash of his award-winning smile and a quick wink, he was off to his cabin.

With headphones in her ears, Lotus' head bobbed as she listened to Sweet nothing By Calvin Harris featuring Florence Welch. She had choreography to this song but she just needed to remember it. Looking over at her sister she smiled seeing Maria texting guys as usual she was more of the social bee anyway. Pulling into the entrance of the resort, Lotus slung her dance bag over her shoulder and stepped out of the car looking around. Man was this place nice. Hearing her father yell through her music, Lotus pulled out an ear bud just to catch the man, Max, say her dad was the reason he had a job. Smiling sweetly, Lotus nodded before smoothing out her shorts. Right now, Lotus wore her tights, a pair of black dance shorts and a tight lime green tan top her hair was down in loose waves to her hips and her curly bangs landed in front of her face. Catching a glimpse at the guy that stood behind Max she smiled. He was attractive. Very attractive but like the rest of the guys, he had eyes for her sister in her tall, lean, blonde beauty. Lotus on the other hand was the opposite. She was very petite, with long dark hair and though she was lean, she wasn't model lean like her sister however she did have more curves.

Lotus jumped hearing the man yell at Ryan and she watched him feeling his warmth against her when they touched. Rolling her eyes at her mothers comment. "Maria isn't a dancer." She replied aggravated as she watched her sister who too eyed Ryan like he was a piece of meat. Biting her lip she watched as he gathered their bangs and chuckled as she caught the keys in her hands. Max and her father Barney still engaged in deep conversation. Tightening her grip around her bag, Lotus looked to Max before stepping forward. "Sorry to interrupt, but I was told there was a dance studio here. Do you mind showing me where it is?" Her voice was light and seemed to bounce off the walls. Max gave Lotus the once over and nodded before outstretching an arm, Lotus took it and began to walk her into the direction of the studio before looking to her. "You know we have a dance class I'm sure you'll love. They teach out on the gazebo and it starts in about five minutes." Lotus bit her lip thinking then shook her head no. "I have an audition in about a two months and I really need to work on my piece. Maybe I'll come by and see it later." She added as a reassurance seeing as his mood seemed to have faltered when she said no. "I'm sure it will be amazing." Within second they were walking into the dance studio and Max left her alone. Walking over to the radio, she plugged in her iPod, slipped on her dance shoes and pressed play. The song Latch by Sam Smith filled the room and with that she lost herself in the music.

Ryan was dressed in a pair of black ballroom dance trousers, a black buttoned up short sleeved shirt when he emerged from his cabin, which stood right next to the dance studio. With his jazz shoes in his hands, he started down the walkway in a fast pace although came to a halt when he heard music blasting from the dance studio. Peering through the window, Ryan smiled a little when he saw a young girl practising what looked like contemporary ballet. He practiced all styles of dancing when he was younger, and was very familiar with most of them, although he only carried on what he did best: latin dancing, ballroom dancing, and of course; dirty dancing.

Ryan snuck in through the backdoor, watching her from behind now. He folded his arms across his broad chest, impressed with her obvious skill. Ah, he recognized her. She was one of Barney's daughters. The longer he stared at her, the more he wondered how old she was. She had a very young face, but her body was that of a grown woman's. Ryan himself was a young age of 27. When the song came to an end, the dark haired man started a slow clap. "Well done," he allowed himself a small smile. "Although may I suggest one thing?" Without waiting for an answer, he dropped his shoes by his side on the hardwood floor and started over to her. "You are very relaxed when you dance. And that's a good thing, don't get me wrong. Face the mirrors for me." Ryan stepped up behind her and grabbed lightly onto her wrists, lifting her arms out by her sides. "Try not to allow yourself to become too relaxed. You also want to maintain your control, right? No body likes spaghetti arms," he wiggled her arms a little, grinning at her through the mirror. "And remember to always finish--" He was cut off when Neil, Max's nephew swung open the door. He was a short little man, around Lotus' age too. "Ryan! I knew I could find you here. You are needed in the gazebo in five minutes, Max says so." He folded his arms across his chest impatiently.

Ryan let go of Lotus' arms, his irritation showing plainly on his face. "Remember what I said," he said softly with a small smile. And with that, he was off again. Neil walked up to her. "My uncle is hosting a dinner party tonight. You should come," he offered her his arm, a stupid grin plastered onto his lips.

Hearing the clapping when she was finished, Lotus jumped and turned her attention to Ryan. Her body was covered in sweat and her her breathing heavy. Swallowing hard she listened to what he said as she ran a hand through her long, dark hair. When he touched her however, her skin flushed pink. When he spoke of spaghetti arms Lotus laughed nodding, her eyes meeting and locking with his in the mirror. She hung on to every word he said, but when the door open and she heard another guys voice, Lotus' looked in the direction of the door seeing Neil. Looking back to Ryan's face she smiled seeing how agitated he looked. "Thank you." Lotus called after him as she began to take of her point shoes, tying them together and throwing them over her shoulder just in time to lace her arm around Neil's. Slipping her feet into her boots, she grabbed her iPod and dance bag before walking out. "Parties aren't really my thing." she said as he led her to their cabin. "Come on it'll be fun. I promise. Your family is going." He added. With an agitated sigh Lotus nodded her head. "Fine I'll go. See you later Neil." She added as she slipped in the front door and closed the door in his face. Lotus then grabbed her bag and went to the bathroom to begin getting ready.


Lotus sat in the large room quietly watching as everyone else conversed with each other. Smoothing her hair into the bun style on top of her head she then moved her hands to her bangs pushing them out of her face. Right now she wore a pale pink spaghetti strapped dress that fell to the center of her thighs and a pair of black heals to match the black accessories she wore. This was not her scene. Grabbing her clutch bag, Lotus stood up and slowly backed out the room through the kitchen. Making her way to the exit, she looked over her shoulder just to bump into someone. "Sorry." She said turning to look at the person. There were so many attractive people working here. "Sneaking out?" He asked as he held her in his arms. Lotus nodded. "The rich isn't really my scene." She said with an embarrassed chuckle. The guy nodded. "Well I have something that you'll love. Come with me." he said as he led her out the back entrance and to a building marked employees only. Music could be heard blasting through the walls and Lotus looked at the boy who was accompanying her. "Trust me. It'll be fun." He said with a smirk as he opened the door and led her inside.

As they walked in the door, Johnny took out the clip in Lotus' hair allowing it to fall into it's natural wavy state. "You don't need this here," he said with a wink as he tossed it onto one of the tables. Grabbing onto one of her hands, Johnny lead her through the massive crowd of people to the other end of the room where Ryan and Katie along with a few others were dirty dancing. One of Ryan's arms was locked around Katie's waist, pressing her tightly against his body as they both swayed to the music. In his opposite hand he held a bottle of cheap beer that was half empty. When Katie fell backwards and shook out her curly blonde hair, Ryan couldn't help but grin devilishly and lean down over her to press his lips to her chest. Katie giggled in response and locked her fingers into his dark hair trying and failing to push his head away. Johnny cleared his throat, his arm around Lotus' waist now. Ryan's eyes shot up. "What's she doing here?" He blurted, too drunk to recognize Lotus. "She's with me," Johnny responded proudly, pulling Lotus a bit closer to his side. "She isn't supposed to be here, Johnny. You know that. I bet she can't even dance." Katie inputted, throwing her arm around Ryan's neck once she stood upright. Ryan gave her a long hard look, a smirk playing on his lips. "Sure she can." Letting go of his partner, Ryan walked up to Lotus and grasped her hand before leading her out to the floor. "Bend your knees," he instructed her, putting his hands on her waist and tugging her closer. "Make lots of eye contact and rotate your hips. Slowly," When he did it, he did his best to rotate her hips with his. His smile was reassuring. "Good. Now wrap your arms around my neck... that's it, you've got it." His brown eyes twinkled when they met hers.

Feeling the clip be released from her hair Lotus shook it out letting the deep waves fall to her hip. Running a hand through her hair she gave her hair a more messy look as she nodded at Johnny's words chuckling softly when he winked. When he clasped his hands with hers, Lotus locked her hand on his and followed mesmerized by the other dancers around her. Seeing Ryan however she flushed a bright pink her eyes glowing a bright green and then he spoke. He didn't remember her. "I uh. I carried a watermelon." She said rather softly before looking down at her hands that were now laced together. Not to mention she was already embarrassed that her crush was kissing on another woman's chest and that woman was beyond gorgeous! Clearing her throat she listened as they continued to talk and that's when Ryan reached out to grab her.

When he lead her to the dance floor, Lotus obeyed his commands bending her knees and circling her hips around with his own stiffly at first. Wrapping her arms around his neck she smiled softly as she began to get more and more into it. Tossing her head back Lotus smiled and even chuckled as she began to lose herself into the music that played. Leaning in just as she was about to make her move Johnny walked up behind her and placed his hand on the small of her back. "Your dad's calling you." He whispered in her ear. Snapping her eyes open, Lotus looked at Johnny before turning back to Ryan and without a word, she moved out of the grasp of his arms and grabbed her cellphone and purse from Johnny before running out of the building. "Hey daddy." She said softly before jumping at his harsh tone. "I'm at the cabin calm down." She said as she took her shoes off starting in a full sprint to the cabin. When she made it there she slipped through the front door and into her room just as she heard the door open. Breathing a sigh of relief, Lotus slipped out of her dress and put on a pair of shorts and a crop top before putting on a pair of ankle socks and going to her vanity, wiped off her makeup and put her hair up into a braid for the night. Slipping into her sheets she recalled the entire day and smiled softly to herself before drifting into a deep sleep filled with, dirty dancing, loud music, and gorgeous brown eyes.


It was ten in the morning when Lotus walked into the dance studio. Plugging up her iPod, she began to blast her music once more now playing Heavy by Florence and the Machines before loosing herself into jumps and turns all the while remembering what Ryan told her the day before. Being relaxed, but not too relaxed. She wondered how he was doing and what happened after she left last night? He looked like he was rather drunk. Did he have a hangover? Was he okay? Would he come and see her dance again today? Would he finally tell her what he was going to say yesterday? Would he even remember her? Would he remember last night? All of these questions raced through her head through every grand jette, switch leap and tour jete. A new scenario popping in her head with every twist and turn. Did he take the curly head blonde home? Who was she? Was she his girlfriend? It wouldn't have surprised her, they were both gorgeous people. They would be a gorgeous couple.

She thought of the way he kissed her chest, and how the girl enjoyed it and the more she thought, the more intense her dance got, the more her body moved. Her body expressing her anger, frustration, idiocy everything she felt came out in the dance to this song. Man was this aggravating, was he aggravating. Why was he so freaking complicated. When the song ended she didn't. She continued into the next song that played. Why did she even care about that Ryan guy? He had nothing to do with her. She shouldn't have cared so much in anyway. He was too for her wasn't he? Well she wouldn't have known but he was drinking beer. But then again, who doesn't drink now whether they are underage or not people do what they want. Hearing the song slow as it came to an end, Lotus stumbled gracefully to the dance bar, before slowly falling to her knees and putting her hands on her head. The room went silent, all that could be heard was Lotus' heavy breathing as beads of sweat dropped to her thighs.
