It is Hosted by Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup.I am addicted to R.K. Lilley's books. No joking! That's why I wait for her to finish series otherwise it would totally kill me :D That being said let me give you 2 paragraphs from her latest book:
Just the thought of going to one of his performances had me thinking of old times, bringing up long forgotten memories of the days when I’d lived to see him on stage.
The fourth time, he had a ticket for me, and he didn’t seem to be taking no for an answer.
“We don’t do these very often,” he cajoled. “I want you to be there. It could be a year before we perform live again. It’s a toned down venue. It won’t be some wild audience. Everyone will be sitting down, I swear.”
I was hopeless. Truly.
“Please. As a favor to me. It would mean a lot to me for you to be there. For support.”
“I take it you have a hand in the lyrics now?” I asked, trying to brazen through my shaky voice. “Unless Kenny wrote that and if he did, that’s really awkward.”
“Oh, you thought that song was about me and you?”
I punched him in the arm, and he laughed harder, and held me tighter.
“Yeah, I’ve taken up songwriting, though Kenny still writes the bulk of them.”
We stood there for a long time in silence before I looked up at him and spoke, “I’m so proud of you. You were always so talented. It is a daunting thing to stare into potential like that and try to do it justice. You have.”
His expression tightened, and he buried his face in my neck.
That had gotten to him.
I patted his back soothingly.
“My only criticism is that you didn’t take off your shirt,” I told him to lighten his mood. “That used to be my favorite part of every show.”
It startled a laugh out of him. “Did I really used to take my shirt off at every show?” he asked, like he couldn’t remember.
