Sunset in San My, pink and peach colored clouds against purple sky, reflecting in Uptown’s glass towers - this made for a perfect backdrop. Candy took off her jacket and threw it on the concrete parapet, then looked around for something to put her phone up against. The flower bed nearby did the trick, Candy turned on the music and camera and started moving in an upbeat shuffle, flowing above the ground as her bright sneakers barely touched it. Ah, she missed it. This was probably a strange thing for someone who did dancing for a living. But Candy missed dancing like this.
This energetic manner wasn’t mainstream in Windenburg’s nightclubs anymore, now you mostly had to stand there barely moving and looking all sexy and bitchy. Somehow it brought more tip. Candy preferred not to think about it, but it felt like tricking the crowd into wanting to buy you. There was a line she didn’t want to cross, but tip sure didn’t hurt. Next week she could probably buy that computer thing – what’s its name? - Yuki mentioned a few times.
She wouldn’t be able to do this forever. Hopefully by that time Yuki would figure out what she wanted to do in life and succeed in it enough for her big sister to stop worrying. Candy never looked like she was worrying, appearing all carefree and smiling at any moment, but it didn’t mean she wasn’t. Moving to Windenburg may have seemed like a stupid or bold decision, but it actually was a desperate one on Candy’s part. Dancing was all she could ever do, but one could only do so much with it, and at least it got her one step closer to Del Sol Valley. There were a lot of steps ahead still…
The music stopped and so did the movement as Candy picked up the phone checking if the video recorded and saved correctly. A bit of bothering Yuki about editing it and it would make a nice update on her social media page. She put the phone down and froze admiring the last rays of sunset being drowned out by city lights turning on.
