Standing instantly, feeling a surprising youthfullness, Rex bowed deeply. "Yes my angel, I do want to be young again, as I should be. Although... ", grinning his usual grin which suddenly seems to for a brief moment drop the sudden years, "Maybe I could be a couple years older... and you better not make me younger than you!", as he took her hands. "I was a few months older, anyway", he said, thinking she would do that just to tease him forever.
To the music which faintly played from somewhere, he took her hands to dance to. Moving to the tune, feeling this lovely creature he knew for so long, lost, then regained somehow... turning and flowing through his arms... his heart crazily surging, happier than he had been for a long time. When the music drove them close, he sighed in pleasure feeling her form close to his. It reminded him of so many times in their life they were close... and so many times later when he was alone, how he missed her.
Whispering to her, unsure if she even heard, when they were close, "I'll never leave you again, I promise."
Clearing his throat, "Yes, my adorable one, let's enjoy today for today."
Rex gave Aoi a deep dip, as they continued to dance.
