Don't Start a Band (Las Pegasus, ATTN: Icy)

Recommended Posts

Kahz knew he was a hard act to follow, and he admired the courage it must have taken for an amateur singer to do so.  He made sure to give an encouraging whisper, "Lay it on thick, girl.  Not like I was being subtle about it myself, we're no secret to each other or the world."  A quick peck to the cheek and he was watching her take the stage and the mic.

 

The song was a soft and sweet one to begin, loaded with sincerity uncut by irony.  Kahz knew the tune, and even before having heard Yù herself sing it he would have said that she had felt that way about him, it not being all that easy to keep emotions secret from a changeling.  But, like applause given freely, confessions and revelations of inner feelings hit different when the actual words were spoken.

He was sitting up straight, transfixed and smiling, letting more of the love wash over him than simply feasting on it.  It would be like drinking from a hose, there was just too much to take it, but that was OK.  Just by it being in the room, it acted as a kind of fertilizer for all relationships in the area, the confirmation of love helping others to make it themselves.  Sensing all that made Kahz feel elated, so much so that it was all he could do not to leap up on stage with  once she approached him at the end of the song.

Once concluded, he accepted her back into her seat with an embrace and a kiss, to no small amount of appluase from admirers of the happy couple.  "You were great up there."  He whispered in her ear.  "It was all I could do to not leap onstage to make the last chorus a duet, but you deserved better than to be upstaged by me."

Yù had to admit a certain bit of elation at the feeling of the applause herself. The attention was certainly different from the one on one attention she... 'borrowed' from clients. Aside from it being a veritable buffet for him, she could easily understand why Kahz went for the rockstar role. The qilin doubted that she could handle it often though because as fantastic as it felt whooo golly was her heart racing. It was certainly worth it though.


As Yù returned to her seat, she would return the cuddle and kiss, nuzzling in against Kahz with a happy sigh. "Thank you, love. I'm glad I did well! I certainly wouldn't have minded a bit if you came up there with me. Probably would've kept my heart from trying to pound out of my chest... Or get it to do so more, even odds." she said with a little laugh. Even now Kahz could feel her heart pounding like a drum, though it was slowing down to a more steady even beat now that she was settled next to him once more. "I heard that song some time ago and found it lovely. It made me think of you more than once ahaha."

Both 's and Kahz's hearts and hormones were running hot, the 'ling could tell.  He scootched over to let her sit by him once more, chuckling, "Not a day goes by that I don't hear a song that makes me think of you... but I'm a musician that sings a lot about love, so perhaps that's just a bias!"  Even as he felt the Qilin settle, he knew it wouldn't take long for either of them to rile the other up once more.  But this was a rhythm, and one to which they could dance.  Actually, that did bring up a thought, "You sing quite well, for all that... do you dance much?"

Yù blinked and chuckled a softly, oh there really was now slowing him down was there? Well that was fine, that passion for life was something the mare adored about him. "Only when no one can see honestly. Living in Canterlot it feels like almost an obligation to know at least a little bit of ballroom dancing, so I've dabbled in that, and aerobic dance is a wonderful exercise when you don't really have time to do much else." she's say with a smile as she leaned on a hoof. "So a novice I would say, but most certainly willing to learn. It'll be fun."

Yù understood what it was to adopt a skill out of obligation, which he supposed accounted for why she hadn't been public with her dancing.  "Honestly, I'm kind of the same when it comes to formal dance.  A lot of the stage moves I do I just made up, back when I wasn't playing for anypony but my hivemates.  There wasn't much pressure to fit in, so I could feel free to just be... me, I suppose.  Turns out, that helps a lot once you come out in public, gets all the jitters out beforehoof.  Nothing messes you up in dancing more than nervous jitters."

He chuckled, offering her arm.  "But seeing as we're both eager students, why don't we go out on the town a look for a teacher?  It's a lot more fun to learn with partner, after all!"

The mare hummed thoughtfully for a moment. She had taken classes on ballroom dancing before so that was far from an issue. But it was different when it was someone you loved. That, however, she knew was just anxiety talking. Kahz didn't care whether she was a master of ballet or had four left hooves. So why should she? "I think that sounds like a wonderful idea. Knowing what little I do know of the city, I'm certain we'll find no shortage of options." she'd reply with a wink, taking the offered arm in hers.

Casually tossing out the last bits needed to cover their bill and tips, Kahz took up Yu's arm and strolled out into the darkening street.  It was just getting to that time of the evening where the land was darkening, but the sky hadn't yet.  Of course, this being Las Pegasus, the sky never really got dark, as all the lights in the buildings above were coming on.

"Better get a little further from the main strip..."  The changeling murmured to himself, trying to remember if there was anypony in his contacts from the casino resort he worked at that kept a teaching studio.  A name suddenly sprang to mind.  "Say... I was thinking, we should probably find someone who teaches a style of dance we're both equally unfamiliar with, right?"  The cheeky grin on his face would have tipped the mare off that her changeling coltfriend had something devious cooking under that chitin dome of his, but hopefully she would find it enjoyable!
