Book Two - Snippet #3

In honor of the Fourth of July...

         Colin orders a glass of water. I’m sipping one of their signature drinks, the Rainbow. It’s almost too pretty to drink, but I do anyway. It’s so good that I make a mental note to just have one because I 've got a feeling that it’s pretty strong. It doesn't take long for the piano players to recognize Colin and begin playing the theme from the television show Dallas. Colin laughs and tips his hat to them.

I grab a napkin and pen and quickly scratch my song request on it. Colin looks at me questioningly. I ignore him and take a five dollar bill out of my purse. I put the napkin and money on the piano. The piano player picks up the napkin and reads it. Then, she flashes me a wink and knowing smile.
