Author’s Note: Because sis asked for a sequel to At the End of the Day and I can’t say no. This is my first songfic set to my all time favorite song which seemed like an appropriate choice for these two, Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darrin.

Terry got up from the sofa and walked over to the old record player they kept on the shelf. He pulled a 45 from the pile lying next to it and slipped it onto the spindle. He may not have been able to dance with his lover at the party earlier but there was nothing to stop him from doing it now. As the record crackled to life, he held his hand out to Dino and smiled. Dino smiled back and gave Terry his hand allowing himself to be pulled to his feet and into Terry’s arms.

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waitin’ for me

Terry rested his forehead against Dino’s as he started leading them around the living room floor and humming the melody. He still regretted not being able to do this earlier in front of the world.

My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin’.

He locked eyes with the redhead and began singing along with the next verse making the appropriate changes to the lyrics.

Somewhere beyond the sea
He’s there watchin’ for me

Dino chuckled and allowed Terry to spin him out then back in again as he listened to him sing.

If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to his arms I’d go sailin’.

Dino laid his head on Terry’s shoulder as strong arms encircled him. They swayed to the music and as the redhead’s mood lifted his smile broadened and his eyes drifted shut.

It's far beyond the stars
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon.

Dino pulled back enough to gaze up into Terry’s eyes. Everything he needed to know was right there. Terry leaned down and brushed his lips against the redhead’s, gently at first. The music played on but they’d stop dancing as Dino opened his mouth allowing Terry to lay claim to him.

We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailin'.

I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet … I know we'll meet … beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before.

Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailin'.
