Thursday Taster 124: Parallel Slip

Hello and welcome to a new Thursday Taster, the day when awesome writers all over the blogosphere come together to give you tasty bits of their last fiction. You can find the list here.
We start right where we left off last week.
I couldn't know that, I wasn't in biology class with her.
Jimmy extended his hand to Amy and she took it. They walked further away from the table between people and I lost side of them. Mike or Nick whatever his name was took my hand and pulled me up. Not like he was asking more like he was forcing me and he waked in the same direction. I followed him. I needed to find Amy. That was the plan, to stuck with her and get us out of trouble. I didn't like the grip he had on my hand and I didn't like that his hands were freezing cold. I was hot as hell in here with all the people around and the smoke and the music, I was sweating under my shirt, how could Mike-nick's hand be so cold.
There was a dancing area. A place where people weren't standing as close to each other then in the other parts of the bar and color spots of light were brushing the people and the floor. I spotted Amy and Jimmy. They were dancing. Mike-nick started to dance too without releasing my wrist. I smiled at him and started to dance too, it was so awkward. I think he relaxed because I could feel his grip on my soften until I managed to fully free myself. He didn't take his eyes of me and I kept glancing at Jimmy and Amy.
"Sorry you have to do with me, Jimmy can only handle one girl at a time," Mike-nick said bending near my ear.
I pushed away from him and smiled. I think I had never forced myself to smile so much in my entire life, my cheeks were starting to feel painful at the new exercise. But what the hell was that supposed to mean: Jimmmy can only handle one girl at a time? There was no way anyone was handling me, no Jimmy and definitely not Mike-nick. Mike-nick was trying to get closer and I used that to move toward Amy as subtly as possible. She seemed to be trying to move away from Jimmy's grips too but she was still genuinely smiling. I didn't know what was going on. In my world, well in all of them, people kept their hands for themselves unless they knew each other and mutually agreed on things like that. I realized how protected I had been all my life and how naive that made me. Damn. I had travelled to so many world but I didn't know how to handle a guy coming hard at me and Mike-nick had one hand on my shoulder and the other on my hips before I knew it and was pulling my closer. I put my hands on his chest and pushed and he grabbed my wrist again.
