Steady rhythm

This piece was written for the Six Sentence Challenge, with the prompt word of ‘rhythm’.

Sheila said ‘I love your enthusiasm, Jim, but you’re a bit rushed; a girl prefers it if you take it slow and steady.’

Jim, a little nonplussed, replied ‘But you said you liked your partner to a be a bit forceful and manly’.

‘Oh, I do’, purred Sheila, ‘but not right away; a girl has to be ready for the big moment.’

‘But how will I know when that is?’ Jim stammered in puzzlement.

‘When I pull you close, you’ll know that I’m ready for the finale’ blushed Sheila. ‘Jim, darling, ballroom dancing is all about rhythm.’
