After a six-month work-related separation, Alain and his partner James planned to meet up for the perfect dream vacation. Then James calls and cancels. He’s met someone new and their relationship is over.
Alain is devastated, and he leaves their vacation hotel in a daze. Evening turns to night and as he walks up one street and down the next, he hears music drifting up from a basement nightclub. The singer sounds like Kenny Dumaine, a man Alain used to know, and he goes in to check.
It takes a moment for Kenny to remember Alain. As an entertainer and always on the move, he’s learned to keep things casual. But Alain’s upset, he’s been drinking, and in no state to be alone. Where’s the harm in offering an old friend a shoulder to cry on? Kenny’s last performance is tomorrow night, and the next day he’ll be leaving for the next stop on his itinerary.
“You’re not staying?” Kenny smiled, the same crooked, sexy smile Alain remembered reeling him into the singer’s orbit the first time around. The kind of smile he could do without in his present vulnerable state.
“I wasn’t planning to.” He took a deep breath and told himself to cool it. If he had any sense at all, instead of coming into the club, he’d have put a cap on his curiosity and kept right on going. “I just happened to be passing, heard the music, and then what I thought sounded like your voice…”
“So you came in to check?”
“Something like that.”
“Hey, I’m glad you did.” Kenny glanced over his shoulder at one of the other musicians who’d returned and was strumming a few random chords on his double bass, then back at Alain. “Sorry, I have to go. This was only a quick time out for a technical problem with one of the instruments. Our break will be in about half an hour. So, why don’t you grab yourself a drink, enjoy the music, and I’ll see you in a bit.”
Without waiting for an answer, Kenny stepped back onto the stage and sat down at the piano.
Alain joined the lineup at the bar, but when his turn came, he shook his head and stepped away.
