Saturday night was similar to Friday; however, the management added more tables to accommodate a bigger crowd. Word must have spread about Brad’s great voice. Brad’s agent sat at a back table. It intrigued Cindy and Wendy that Brad spent so little time with Karen between sets. He mostly visited audience members, offering him a good opportunity to tell people about his performing at Hoffman’s. People from Palm Springs often visited LA.
Later, in their room, they replayed the two evenings with Brad…his wonderful performances, his voice, and Karen. They discussed it all. Once in bed Cindy tossed around a bit and finally nodded off, but Wendy lay in bed reliving the astonishing time. It wasn’t just Brad’s singing that excited Wendy but the chance to getaway, to walk around in a new place, look at different shops, plus stopping for tea in the outdoor eating area. What a relaxing time.
“A penny for your thoughts,” Wendy said while they sat in silence eating breakfast the next morning.
“The realization of his being with another woman helps me accept my reality, in regards, to our relationship. Before, I always hoped I was more special than the others, but now I know the truth. I can handle it.”
“I’m glad. I’ve been so worried.”
“I know you were, and thanks. I’m okay.” Cindy sipped her coffee and chomped on a slice of bacon
“’Be calm and carry on,’” as the saying goes.”
After breakfast they returned to their room, packed, checked out and headed home.
During the drive, Wendy considered how much she wanted Brad to desire her. Wendy realized Cindy and other women at Hoffman’s all wanted this talented and gorgeous man to find them special and for people to know such a great guy wanted them. To Wendy it had to do with ego because now that she looked sexy, she wanted Brad to acknowledge it by finally wanting her too. Maybe, for the first time in her life such an amazing man might find her desirable.
