Marty left for a business trip to San Francisco and Cindy didn’t say whether she would be going to Hoffman’s or not, but Wendy put on her new pair of stone washed jeans and a wheat colored long sleeved blouse with ruffles at the wrist. Wendy knew Cindy’s reaction, “You look funky.” She liked this change, especially the fact people she knew at Hoffman’s made so many positive comments about how good she looked. Everything she had been doing to make herself look better paid off.
She loved the center piano bar seat, and it was available when she arrived at Hoffman’s. A woman next to her took the maraca and started to play along with the music. Wendy took the four-inch-long wooden instrument to shake and joined in. She laughed a lot and became silly, joining in with people around her. Being outgoing at Hoffman’s made her feel right at home and she enjoyed the enthusiastic participation as everyone else seemed to. Wendy now belonged in a comfortable space.
Cindy came in and stood by Wendy. They nodded to each other. A few minutes later Brad took a break. Cindy and Wendy were talking when Wendy noticed Brad visiting with an older looking distinguished gentleman dressed in a white shirt with a tie and wearing a sports jacket. Wendy mentioned it to Cindy who looked over.
“I think it’s his agent. Brad mentioned he might stop by. Brad hired him a couple of weeks ago to see if he could find some out of town engagements for once in a while.”
