Sadie Hawkins Dance 2015, Kingman, Arizona was definitely better than Sadie Hawkins Dance 2014, Kingman, Arizona. Conrad was fond of the theme, the music and the people here.

Hip-hop was played. It was a great genre for Conrad. It reminded him of basketball. It was lyrically impressive some times as well. But he was neutral about the others songs. He wouldn't hate any song, would not make fun of one of the dumber songs playing. This was an evening for fun and love, not for hate.

Conrad walked onto the dance floor. For the dance he wore a black, satin-tuxedo with a black tie. He wore black slacks as well that were meshed with the other black slacks on the dance floor. Though he did not intend to lose sight of his girlfriend.

He then lurched to the direction of Clarice to ask her something.

"Do you want to dance, eminence?"

He cycled his left hand, he was left-handed after all, with a quick bow.

Haha, yeah. That was quiet the truth Clarice pointed out. It was really dissonant. Conrad had to laugh out loud, resulting in a bright smile.

"Let me try it again, then...Yooo, wanna dance with me, mah honey?", Conrad repeated while putting on a peace sign with his right hand, before releasing it, laughing and shaking his head at his own acting attempt on asking her to dance in a more hip-hoppy way.

"So, let us go ahead to dance, then!"

Walking backwards, to keep looking at her eyes, more onto the dancing area, he accidently bumped into another student.

"Sorry!", he quickly said to the person he bumped into with using his right hand as the apology hand, lifting it up.

His left hand still held Clarice, slowly pulling her closer to him to not lose her in the crowd.

Clarice was right. He wasn't good at comedy or imitation. He should let Noah or Rene do these kind of things.

"Haha, I won't do that again, majesty!"

Now Conrad has vivid image of Clarice stomping on people with a crown, after Clarice pointed that out. He had to grin at her joke.

Finally, they arrived at a good place to dance. Upon Clarice's confession, Conrad had to admit it as well.

"I never learned how to dance either."

A pivot barely counted as a dance move. But that did not matter, they could just enjoy the music. The two of them were tall people, but Conrad secretly hoped they would not get too much attention, since neither of them could dance.

"Besides, I do not know how people can dance to this song."

And so Conrad bobbed along.

Kizi ruined the sweet moment between him and Clarice. Just the two of them, the other people in the room just being strangers despite going to the same high school for four years. All that mattered was the two of them. Clarice and Conrad.

But Kizi came and ruined it. But it was not because he hated her. No, quite the opposite was the case. She was beautiful, smart, extremely friendly and got along with Conrad well. The two of them really got along well and had shared their interests, in languages specifically. Conrad felt like Kizi could understand him and his views better and he really, really liked her. She was very sympathetic to him.

It was cute as well, how she told them and complimented him and Clarice with stating that they were being a cute couple. Conrad also liked her trivia babbling. Conrad did not knew about the velcro thing, but now did. Maybe it was also the combination of that with her constant sweet smile and her good-looking brown eyes, while wearing a dress that fit her well that made Conrad happy to see her.

Not that she'd be a better girlfriend for him than Clarice, clearly. Maybe. Clarice, he really liked Clarice. He knew her for a long time. He loved her. He really did. He knew her all his life. He also could understand her well, and she did understand him. There's no one else who understood him in sports like him. Or activism. But that was another thing where Kizi came to his life. But, he really liked her.

He couldn't explain it. Why he was thinking that. Why he would be attracted to Kizi. He was never attracted to anyone other than Clarice before, before Kizi. Love was confusing.

"Thank you very much!", he said with a gentle smile. Compliments from her were nice to hear. He was interested on her answer on the velcro mystery.

It was a weird situation he was in, dancing with the girl that he loved and then talking to the girl he really liked much. Conrad felt uncomfortable, but still had the expression as if everything was normal and Kizi was just another person. Though he was a bit more reserved.

But the fact was that Clarice was his girlfriend, Clarice was the person he loved, Clarice was the person who should get all the attention of him that night. Conrad did not think of letting his girlfriend down due to another girl.

"I agree that you look really good in the dress!"

But Kizi...

A dance with Kizi would be just as wonderful.

It was complicated.

"Hook and loop fastener, huh?"

Conrad gave Clarice a smile after her comment and Kizi appeared to fall to the ground. Was it because of her shoes? It did not matter, as Conrad quickly reached his arm to let her fall on his arms instead of letting her fall on the ground, while making a quick pant sound as he hurried to her position. Hopefully, everything was fine.

He quickly worried about...Nothing, really. What should he worry about? There is nothing wrong with helping a friend's face not meeting the floor.

Clarice was right. If the three of them do not dance together (how would that even work?), the bar would be a better place to go, to chat.

"I am not hungry or thirsty yet, but we can certainly go to the snack bar, there!"

He pointed at the snack bar. Hm, maybe it would have been better if Conrad and Clarice continued dancing instead of chatting with Kizi. This could ruin Conrad's evening.

Kizi's grateful smiles made Conrad smile, with him replying with a quick "no problem", ignoring the quickly added velcro comment.

"Nono, it's fine. It's totally fine!"

Conrad looked at Clarice, who also wanted to go for a snack.

"After all, we-"

Conrad had to think about what to say. We all need to be happy?

"The dance would be a bad one, if somebody would be bored. It should be a good one for everyone!"

Beaks dated Ki- oh, just was her dance partner. Calm down. No, he had no reason to calm down. Everything was fine, even if Beaks dated Kizi.

Actually, not really. Conrad did not know Beaks that well, but he had a...reputation. Conrad heard that he gotten into a fight with Bradley some years ago. Clarice claiming that Beaks was 'kind of a dick' was not really making Conrad happier either.

But Conrad still had his smile on his face.

"Whatever horse tastes like: I prefer cake!"

Conrad did the same as Clarice and also grabbed a cake. Conrad regretted that, maybe he should have waited till he was actually hungry. After all, the cake was limited. But nonetheless he bit it and it was tasty.

K to the izi? N to the o. Beaks. Beaks was really making Conrad cringe inwardly with the lame flirt he attempted at Kizi.

But he tried to ignore it and concentrated on the cake.

"Beaks", he repeated what Clarice had said. Well, with a full mouth. Eh, whatever. It did not look disgusting, it just made it sound more like a 'byyx', though.

Conrad looked at Clarice and noticed how she looked at the dance floor.

"It's tasty, Clarice. Don't you think?"

High society Bond? Conrad thought he was dressed appropiately, but Beaks apparently made fun of him. "Mr. President" raised an eyebrow before politely smiling at Beaks, who probably joked around in a very bad way. Making fun of the height of people was not right, in Conrad eyes, no matter how tall or small one is. If Clarice and Beaks were friends, yes, maybe, but damn it, he did not even know her name.

Good thing was that Clarice saved the conversation with the bodyguard comment, which was a very smart move. So he had to smirk at Clarice and as he did that, he realised that they probably should go to the dance floor again. Yeah, that would be better than talking about presidents and WC Republic with its capital in Washington W.C.

"Thanks. Yeah, we are here together for the dance. You are dancing together with Kizi, I see. How did you two meet?"

Well, he should stop small talking and maybe dance with Clarice again for a pleasant time without Aiden and Kizi. Both made him feel uncomfortable for two very different reasons.

"We just wanted to have a quick break, but I think we will go dancing again!"

Childhood friends, eh? Conrad wanted to broach the subject again, but then Clarice wanted to go away. When she clamped her around his, Conrad turned to Kizi while walking towards the floor.

"Oh, dancing is...", he started, but stopped. "Yeah, see you later!"

Then, he changed his focus to Clarice, who gave him a look. She did not like Kizi and Aiden, given the expression, or at least the situation. Conrad kinda wished she would be more friendly and would like more people and dislike less. Like Kizi? No. Clarice is Clarice and is perfect for being herself. Disliking certain people is legitimate. Aiden was a jerk, yeah. Not as jerky as Bradley, no. Yeah, maybe Aiden was not a jerk. Whatever, the fact was that Clarice did not like him. When out of earshot, he said something.

"Cool, now we can finally dance again. You don't like Aiden, do you?"

Waiting for her reaction, he offered his other hand.

"Hmh!", he replied to Clarice. "We should dance for the moment, and maybe we will see them later."

And so they danced.




Later.

Time had passed, Conrad was hungry and would have loved to snack something.

"Do you want to go back to the snack bar?"

The Sadie Hawkins Dance was a good experience for Conrad, even if it was awkward with Beaks and Kizi being together.

He could have been the one that...

He is the one who danced with his girlfriend, he was the one who spent his time with his girlfriend. And it was a beautiful night, no complaints. Conrad was looking forward to Prom, which will even be better.

((Conrad Timothy Harrod continued elsewhere))
