"I kept your tie safe," she said, and held out a red silk necktie. He'd been dancing on the coffee table when he threw it at her. 
"Thank you," he said, taking it and slinging it around his neck. "That was a good catch--but I was actually trying to lure you out onto the dance floor."
"That was a coffee table, Noel."
"There was room for two, Margaret."

"It's our last chance to dance together!" he said. "It's our senior year!"
"We have months left to dance," Mags said, stopping at the food table to get a mini quiche.
Noel walked down the couch, stepped onto the coffee table, then stretched one long leg out as far as he could to make it onto the love seat next to Mags. 
"They're playing our song," he said.
"They're playing 'Baby Got Back,'" Mags said.
Noel grinned.
