This week continues with the story from last week, “Not My Thing,” which will be released as a free short ebook by Evolved Publishing in early April.
When The Dancing Freemasons embark on their first major tour, Jeff’s dreams of being a rockstar have come true – until he can no longer connect with the music. One night after a show, he meets a woman who might be the one to get the music flowing again, but is the cost worth it?
For the last few scenes, Jeff’s been awkwardly chatting with that woman. Last week, he asked her if she wanted to grab a bite to eat.
They end up at a Denny’s by an airport, where Jeff orders a greasy breakfast plate, and Lisa goes for pancakes.
She watches him as he tears into his food, her fork suspended over her own plate. “Don’t they feed you guys?”
He shakes his head, swallows down the bite in his mouth. “Rock stars get free booze, not food. It keeps us happier.”
“If it’s that bad touring, why do it?”
“It’s the music, pure, one hundred percent about the music.”
