Rainbow snippet - If Music Be (from In the Spotlight)

March 12th, 2017 (01:13 pm)

In The Spotlight is out next week and available for pre-order. The second of the two stories in the combo is a story of love, loss and the healing power of the Bard. Rick's just agreed to take part in a production of "Twelfth Night".

“Okay. I’ll do it. Just for you.”

“Magic. It’ll be good to have you as my wingman again. Although I promise it won’t be as bad an experience as ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’.”

“I’m pulling out if it is.” Rick shuddered in remembrance of a particularly spiky old bat who’d played one of the lead characters. “E-mail me with all the details.”

“I’ll do it right now.”

Eddie had a good, logical mind, and he was a doer. He also possessed a disconcertingly honest streak that meant he’d soon tell Rick if his return to the stage wasn’t working out. This might turn out all right. Maybe.

“Am I barmy doing this?” he asked Coldstream, but the cat just went back to licking his tail.
