Well, tell me about it later?

Francine winced internally at the mention of her and Elijah’s mutual friend. She knew Lucien had sorta snapped at Camilla recently and had already talked to him about it. Apparently he had accused her of being a homewrecker and trying to steal Francine from him, but she understood that it was just because he was stressed out with everything that had been going on. So she just reminded him that neither she nor Camilla were gay, and that she wasn’t going anywhere. She also gently asked him to please not yell at her friends, and everything was okay.

Francine laughed quietly at the change of pace and stepped closer to him, moving to place one hand on his shoulder and offer her other to his. “Lucien’s taught me a bit about partner dancing,” she stated optimistically. “I don’t know how to lead, but I’m pretty good at following if you want to try?” The inflection turned the statement to a question, asking his input. But her hands were finding their way to him, and her hip was right there for the taking.
