Class went by rather fast, and before they knew it, they were meeting outside the building. Sean looked up from his phone as he leaned against the railing of the stairs, a smile on his face as he saw Kaycee walking toward him. He greeted her with a sweet kiss on her cheek, a blush rising to them.

"I will never get tired of seeing you blush," he chuckled, making her smile.

"Let's go, Lew," she said tugging on his arm as they walked down the stairs of the building and into the parking lot. "We have a lot of rehearsing to do since we didn't this past weekend."

"Yes ma'am," he said formally, earning a her precious laughter from her.

They made it to Sean's car, Kaycee allowing him to do their usual routine before they were situated in their seats. They left the radio on as Sean drove, going the opposite direction from his house. Kaycee danced horribly on purpose to get Sean to laugh, succeeding as he let out a few laughs. Once they arrived to Kaycee's, her family was fast to greet him the second he walked in.

"Ah, Mr. Lew," Laura said excitedly, giving him a hug. "It's been too long,"

"You're holding our girl hostage," Brad said, high fiving him.

Sean raised his hands in defeat, "My bad," he laughed. Kaycee watched in awe as Sean joked around with her parents, just as they usually did. Her parents teased them so much it didn't even bother either of them anymore, it was just routine.

"Are you staying for dinner?" Laura asked.

Sean looked at Kaycee and the two nodded. "I haven't had a classic Rice family dinner in a while," he said. "I'd love to."

While Laura and Brad prepped for dinner, Sean and Kaycee found themselves alone in the garage, rehearsing. They were hoping to teach a class together soon and had to go over concept ideas for choreographies.

"What if we do a love story?" Sean asked. Kaycee dropped her head, almost hitting the floor as she laid on her stomach in the middle of the garage.

She groaned. "Boring. We need to think outside the box and do something different," she said, deep in thought. "We need to do something we've never done before."

"What about a piece about moving forward," he suggested. "Moving on after you've been hurt. Grief and pain, things like that."

"Oh, that's interesting," Kaycee agreed, as she typed it out on her notes in her phone. "I like that idea best so far."

"Great," he clapped his hands. "Now we just need to find a song."

"You look on your laptop, and I'll look through my phone," she said. "There has to be at least one."

The two scrolled through their music libraries, until Sean came across a song he excitedly connected to the speakers.

"Leave A Light On," Sean said. "By Tom Walker."

"Play it."

The garage was immediately filled with a raspy voice and a piano, Kaycee's ears perking up at the softness of the keys contrasting with the roughness of his voice. Sean stood next to his laptop, imagining moves in his head while Kaycee marked a few of them of her own.

Their eyes then widened at the beat drop, hearing the rasp in his voice as more beats were added behind it. Sean marked a few steps as Kaycee watched, a smile on her face. The song went back to the calmness it had at the beginning, piano and rasp, only for it to go back into the beat again.

Once it was over, Sean looked over at Kaycee.

"So," he spoke. "What do we think?"

"It's perfect, Sean," she smiled. "I think this could work. It'll be so raw and emotional."
