Tuesday Tales- June 17, 2014- Father

This week’s word is Father– I guess because it’s just past Father’s Day- I am not using the word in that way at all but I am using it since I am totally a rule-follower.  This is my new story I started last week.  It is still nameless.  Be sure to check out the other stories here. 

Badge for TT - very small


The woman shoved one of the men with her and said, “Cut it out, Summa. You’re insane.”

The sound of her voice was mesmerizing. She could not be real. Her laugh was infectious and almost Paul’s undoing. He needed to get a grip. The concert was due to start soon and he couldn’t be up here onstage like some sick puppy all moony-eyed over some chick. It was a bit disconcerting to realize he was now in the position of some of the groupies who followed him around begging for an autograph or a picture. He could be a groupie for this woman for sure.

Amos stepped on to the stage. “You all tuned up?”

Paul did a double take. “All tuned up?” Could Amos tell he was hot for that girl? Surely not. It can’t be that obvious, can it?

Snapping his fingers in front of Paul’s face, Amos said, “What’s wrong with you? You came over to make sure your instruments were ready and now you’ve gone off into la-la land.”

“Holy father of rock and roll, who’s that blonde chick?”

Amos glanced at the crowd by the door who were still jostling each other and getting dry from the storm. “Oh, her? That’s Kat McKay.”

“She’s pretty hot, isn’t she?”

“Yeah, she’s not only cute, she’s brilliant but don’t get your hopes up.”

“Figures a gal like that is taken. Perfect little package there,” Paul strummed a few notes on the acoustic guitar on his lap.

“Na. She’s not taken but every dude in the joint wants to date her. She’s not interested though.”

“No way she’s not heterosexual. Man, what a waste for mankind if she likes women.” Paul’s stomach fell to his feet. No way. He wouldn’t believe it.

Amos threw his head back and laughed until Paul thought he’d bust a gut.
