He looked around him. He was sitting in a small boat. All around him there were enormous, lush trees, birds singing and flying from branch to branch, colorful vines hanging down and dipping into the clear, blue water. The boat was rocking gently as it moved across the sparkling lake, which mirrored the soft light of the moon. It was beautiful, but the most beautiful thing around was sitting there, right in front of him. Matt couldn't believe his luck. She was there, actually in the boat with him. He had dreamed of this moment for so long and now it had come ...... He had no idea what to do next.
Suddenly, music started to play from out of nowhere. Deep male voices were humming softly in the background. Matt ignored it all. His eyes were on her only. He didn't even seem to notice when all of a sudden Benny Ray popped up between two vines and started to sing.
Next, Nick and Deke appeared from behind a couple of bushes and started singing along with Benny Ray, snipping their fingers in tune with the melody.
Chance, CJ and Drummer, one after the other, popped up out of the ferns, joined the other three men and took up the song as well.
He watched her as the music played on softly in the background. The way her hair swayed when she moved. The way the moonlight seemed to be reflected in her eyes when she smiled at him. Had he ever wanted more to kiss her? To feel the touch of her soft, supple lips on his? Then Benny Ray started singing again.
Slowly the music was fading away and the other team members, one by one, disappeared again behind the greenery and were gone from his sight.
Matt looked over at Margo. They were alone. She turned to face him with an inviting smile. He leaned forward, their lips about to meet and..........
Matt sat up in bed. He blinked several times and reached for the bedside lamp. The room lit up. Looking around carefully to make sure that nobody was going to pop out from some- where and start singing, he finally shook his head.
"I wish somebody would remind me not to watch old Disney movies with the guys before I go to bed, ... no matter how much Nick likes them."
With a sigh he switched off the lamp and went back to sleep and..... to his dream?
