When I had a bad headache

A dance scene I drafted on 15 September when I had a bad headache. Sharing with you on this Monday morning:
The man led her to the marble dance floor, as he studied her through his quizzical eyes. With her 5feet 6 inches, Katerina was rather more impressive than what’s marked “beautiful” in the company that mainly consisted of Chinese and Japanese guests; beau monde of Harbin who didn’t particularly stand out in height. Among the showy flock of scarecrows, her tidy silhouette reminded him of a Greek statue, rising, flower-like, from floor in a cascade of shadow and light, and unfolding a graduated lavender field in the bleak midwinter. Soft, pleating jersey wound around her body like a snake, watering down the sculpted arrangements of liquid, brilliant silk emphasizing her rational shoulders. How could he think of “rational”, he asked himself, in a scenery whose living palette is to hide or reveal the surface polite, savage underneath?”

Below is to show you how “dance” is written in Chinese. So next time when you are having a headache, go prancing and shuffling:)
