“I can’t imagine my life without you,” said Tony, wistfully. He was sitting against the backboard of the bed, cradling Maria in his lap.
“My Tony,” cooed Maria, giving him a kiss on the cheek.
Tony smiled and held her tighter, affectionately rubbing his cheek against hers. “Oh, Maria…I love you so dearly.”
“Oh, Tony…I am so fond of you,” she replied.
Tony raised an eyebrow. “What?”
Maria giggled, wrapping her arms around his neck. “Only joking, my angel. I love you very much too!”
Tony snorted a laugh, running his hand down her side. She stiffened slightly when he did this. Then he gave her side a gentle squeeze, causing her to jump in his lap.
“Eeeh! Tony!” she giggled.
Tony goosed her side again, making her erupt in giggles. He grinned.
“Tony, por favor! I do not like it!” Maria insisted, trying to push his hands away from her sides. She was still grinning herself.
“Haha, you’re ticklish,” Tony chuckled.
Maria pursed her lips. “Oh, and how do you like this?” She then gave him a flick to the head.
“Now Maria, that wasn’t very nice,” Tony scolded, playfully. “I guess I’ll just have to teach you a lesson.” With that, he grabbed her around the waist and began tickling her.
Maria laughed and writhed as he squeezed her delicate stomach.
“Hahahaha! T-Tony! Stop!” she squealed.
Tony continued tickling her belly for a few seconds longer. Then he stopped to let Maria catch her breath. As soon as he let go of her, Maria crawled away and curled up in ball. She was giggling and panting. Tony laughed, lying down beside her on the bed. He gave her a kiss on the cheek.
Maria glared at him, but soon she was smiling as well.
“Wasn’t that fun?” he asked.
“No…well, I suppose it was a little fun,” she admitted, blushing.
“Well,” Tony said, smiling. “Then you’re going to love this!” With that, he grabbed her bare feet and began tickling them.
“NO! Hahahahaha! Tihihickles!” Maria shrieked and laughed and kicked at him. She finally managed to kick him right off the bed!
Tony yelped as he fell. Maria regained her composure and peeked at him. “Oh, Tony! Are you hurt?”
“I’m fine,” he assured her, standing up. “Nothing broken.”
Maria looked relieved for a moment. Then she frowned at him. “Why did you have to fall off the bed? I was just having fun!”
“I never knew you were so ticklish,” said Tony, grinning.
Maria blushed as she tucked her feet out of his view. “Neither did I.”
Tony laughed and threw his arms around Maria, giving her a big hug. “What fun we’re having tonight! Maria, you’re the greatest,” he raved.
Maria gazed deeply into his eyes, giving him one of her warmest smiles. “I love you very much too.”
The young couple spent the rest of the night talking, snuggling, and making love. Maria and Tony were the happiest they had ever been in their lives.

Hi guys, I would like to write my favourite songs from West Side Story, ready?
I love how the movie interpreted this song, where Anita and the girls sing about why they love the US and the boys interjected their opinions about the US before it ended in a dance.
It's been covered by many artist and Il Divo is one of them, I prefer both movie and Il Divo's rendition, the latter version has more upbeat.
3. I Feel Pretty
This song is really interesting, because it is like Maria's friends voice out their opinions about her. Interesting fact, Santino Fontana used this song for his audition in Disney's Frozen with some minor changes in the lyrics though!
Another song that was covered by Il Divo and Jackie Evancho with Babra Streisand, I prefer the latter as well as the movie version for some reason.
I Want to be in America!
So, only 4 songs make it through the cut, which are your favourites?

The film's leading actor Richard Beymer is not in the video and also leading lady Natalie Wood because as you know that she died by drowning on the night on November 28 1981, her body was found the next day on the 29th.
