582 – Inspiration Strikes

At 11pm, one thing was sure: Tim wouldn’t get any audience. But he didn’t really care, he had just found a good vibe.


“I should be heading home soon though…”


“Hey man.”


–          What’s that stuff you’re playing?

–          It’s called improvisation.


“Hold on…”


“I like how your impro sounds.”


“Holy shit, that was something!”


–          Let’s make a band, mate.

–          Sorry but… who are you anyway?


“First things first, I guess. The name’s Kyle.”


–          And I’m Tim. What was that about making a band?

–          I’m dead serious.


–          Lemme go and grab my guitar at my place, we’ll improvise together. You’ll see what I mean.

–          I don’t know, it’s already late and…


–          Oh well… I guess I can make a quick detour.

–          That’s the spirit!


Quick detour alright… They were still playing at the break of dawn.


“Hey, I think the sun’s up.”


“Woops. I didn’t realize that! Let me check out something.”


–          That’s what I feared. 47 missed calls.

–          Your mother?

–          Worse: my dad. Better call him now.


–          H… hi dad? Yeah, I’m coming home now… I’m sorry but I met someone and… No, it’s not a girl! Yeah, right now.

–          Haha! Way to go, daddy!


“I’m screwed…”



–          Whatever, it’s 6am, Tim!

–          I know… I’m sorry, okay? I told you that it was special.


–          I don’t care if you thought it was special! You didn’t even bother to call us!

–          But dad, you should understand! You know how it goes, I thought you were a musician! Inspiration just doesn’t strike out of nowhere…


–          That does it. You’re grounded until further notice.

–          You can’t do that! I’m just about to start a band! There are so many things…

–          I can and I will.


“Shit. Shit shit SHIT.”

    Aw, this was such a fun update. I’m glad Tim has made a friend, he always seemed lonely to me. At least now he has someone to improvise with. Kyle seems like a fun guy. I wonder how far they’ll take the band thing. As for Tim’s dad, I totally understand his reaction, I’d be worried sick too if my daughter was out all night and I couldn’t reach her.

      Tim is pretty popular, but he’s always lost in his thoughts. 🙂 Now he has someone who understands his passion for music.

    Oh boy *LOL* I have to laugh… I guess the police bringing him home would have been a lot worse.

      Tim is so absent-minded, really! Virtuoso AND absent-minded do not go well together!
