"Where are they?" I asked.
"Marlon's at school, and Corinna will be here with mum, later." He replied, wincing a little as if he expected me to scream at him.
"I'm not going to shout at you for inviting mum, I expected you to, I just didn't want to invite her myself."
"It's not just that.... I asked Corinna to marry me...." I tried to hide a look of disgust. "She said yes."
"Congratulations." I responded. I was happy for him, but I don't see what he sees in that girl. Yuck.
"See that set behind you? She puts on gigs and she'll pay you to play on it." He winked at me and walked off. I was a little skeptical, could I just walk up and demand her to pay to me to play? She did look like she was enjoying my set, so I picked up Geneva and walked over to her.
"Hi." I began, sounding far more confident than I felt. "I hear you pay people to play on your stage?" Stupid! I cursed myself, How desperate does that sound?? She smiled at me.
"I do, I have an opening 8.30 tomorrow evening? You're welcome to have it until 11.30, but you don't have to use it the whole time." I nodded, kind of shocked how easy that was. "We'll agree payment tomorrow, it depends how many people you draw in and etcetera. Do you have a stage name? I can start advertising you."
"Uhm... Naz?" I said, just using my nickname from when I was younger, not really sure what else to suggest.
A/N: Short, I know. Sorry... More starts happening after this chapter, promise!
