At the Ballet


Evelyn was an anomaly: she had a propensity for a folk music and rock and roll dancing, and, at the same time, she was an avid fan of classical ballet. At one time she had been a fledgling ballet dancer. Robert headed for a theater where a ballet company was performing. He knew he had to wary so that Evelyn might not see him first. It was Tuesday evening: two days gone with so little to show. Only three more remaining before the deadline set by Evelyn. He tried hard to allay the sudden fear that came over him that he might not locate her. Nothing would deter him from succeeding! And so, although he was far from a connoisseur of the dance, he was standing among the throng in the lobby, hoping it would be a propitious evening for him.
