She’d braided her hair again and tucked the plaits in her orange beret that matched the floral patterned knit shirt she paired with an old pair of jeans.

Amos was making burgers at the grill and Johnny was cutting onions. A bartender stood at the bar making a variety of martinis. Some were light colored and some were darker. They varied from light pink to purple. “Hey guys. Good to see you.” Kat breezed in and put on an act that everything was fine and normal. She nodded toward the bartender. “What’s up with the festive drinks?”

“We’re trying some new recipes for ladies night,” Amos said.

“Did you have a nice time on tour with Paul?” Johnny asked.

“It was cool, yeah. Interesting to see how it all works from the inside. It’s a lot more work than I ever imagined it would be for sure.”

Amos was silent but Johnny continued the conversation, “Did you get a chance to see any of the city or did you spend all the time with the crew?”

“We spent a lot of time either at the venue or at the hotel. It doesn’t seem as if a lot of sightseeing takes place. In fact, if we hadn’t gotten on his plane a couple of times, each place could’ve been the same city for all I could tell.”

“I’ve heard that from Paul before.” Johnny grabbed a tomato and starting slicing.

“I’m glad I went but I’m happy to be home.


  1. Well done including the pic and the description. As a non-cocktail drinker … purple? Really? 🙂

    • Yep, purple – I actually took part in a martini tasting on a cruise ship where they had all kinds of flavors like pomegranate, grape, strawberry, etc. They were very much multi-colored. AND tasty. Well, some of them. LOL

  2. Interesting to her her perspective that she was too busy to even know where she was. I’m not surprised that tours are like that. People think the music business is glamorous, but I see from this that’s a business, like any other. Love this post.

    • Thanks Jean. I think it has to be hard going from city to city, hotel to hotel, at the pace the tours go.


  3. Great use of the picture prompt!

    • Thanks Vicki.


  4. I love the reactions from Amos and Johnny at her news. Curious why Amos doesn’t seem pleased. Can’t wait to read more!

    • thanks Tricia. Amos is def. mad at her. Glad you picked that up! LOL

  5. Elegant and well done. Love the dialogue. I enjoyed your snippet very much.

    • Thanks Flossie. I like the elegant word.


  6. I love how you describe what she’s wearing. Great snippet!

    • Thanks Trisha.


  7. A very visual snippet. And yes I can understand her comment about not knowing the difference between destinations.

    • Thanks Sherry!
