His arms slowly encircled my waist as we continued dancing to the band playing Fur Elise by Beethoven.  I tentatively slid my hands behind his head, pulling us closer together and resting my head against his chest.  Even in heels, he was still a good head taller than me.

As we continued to sway to the music, he quietly asked, "Why am I the only one who can see them?"

I pulled back enough to look into his eyes. And just as quietly as him, I answered, "Because you've seen me before...and because I want you to."

It seemed that this suited him, so I again rested my head against his chest.  My breathe hitched a little.  I had never revealed that to someone before; never needed to.

I could hear the smile in his voice as he said, "Must be the music..."

I smile, You don't know the half of it.

You don't know how much I've given up for you.
On Saturdays, we're given a quote to respond to how we see fit, IC of course. This is how Ishe responded to the below prompt:

"Music is a higher revelation than philosophy." --so said Beethoven. (Well, actually, what he said was more like Musik ist höhere Offenbarung als alle Weisheit und Philosophie, and there's considerable debate over whether he even said it... but never you mind that.)

Attribution aside, let your characters respond to this quote, either with a first-person musing upon it, or by letting the quote inspire a little bit of a scene-- whatever works for you to get some inspiration.
