Where He Brought Me From
Chapter 5: Divine Intervention
5.4 Divine Intervention: To Be Or Not To Be
Jessica and Kash pulled up to the studio. She had already thought up some lyrics to the music Kash had played for her. As the limo stopped in front of Rockcity Rapland Entertainment Jessica’s heart began to race. This was it, her moment. She would finally get to be in a real studio singing her songs. The driver opened the door and Kash got out of the car but Jessica just froze.
“Are you okay?” Kash asked as he reached out his hand to her.
“Yes.” She answered as she snapped out of it. “I’m just happy.” She said as tears formed in her eyes. Kash smiled at her and grabbed her hand.
“Come on.” He said.
The studio was enormous. Jessica was in awe of all the expensive looking equipment. There were so many knobs and buttons everywhere. She felt like a kid in a candy store as her eyes darted around the room. There was something almost whimsical about room nothing seemed real.
“Hey I’m Faze One your engineer for today.” An average looking man in a jogging suit said as he shook her hand.
“Hi, I’m Jessica.” She replied.
“She wrote something for that upbeat track you sent us,” Kash said.
“Cool let me hear it.” Faze One said.
Jessica took a deep breath then began singing and snapping her fingers to keep time. Faze One looked floored as he listened intently.
When she finished he asked, “Did you write this one the way over?”
“Yes.” She replied nervously.
“Don’t look so scared.” He laughed. “That was amazing I’m shocked you wrote something that good so fast.” He added.
“Thank you.” She replied.
“Well, just let me set up the track and you can go ahead and go in the booth.” He told her.
As Jessica sat patiently in the booth waiting for Faze One to setup the track she got a text from Jennifer. The text read lunch at one at Carmon’s. Jessica shook her head and turned her phone off without replying. She started to sing her song quietly to herself.
“Okay, are you ready?” Faze One asked over the intercom.
“Yes,” Jessica replied as she nodded her head yes.
Jessica put on the headphones and the music begun to play. As she sung Kash smiled and stared in amazement. He was truly falling in love with her. He wanted to take care of her and protect her from anyone who would bring her harm including her family.
The song was finished and to Jessica’s dismay, she still had time to make it to lunch. As she came out of the booth Kash asked, “So where are we having lunch?” Jessica looked frustrated and rolled her eyes.
“Don’t do that you agreed to go and I’ll be with you.” He said.
“Carmon’s in twenty minutes.” She mumbled.
“Okay Faze One it was good seeing you but we have a lunch to get to, send me the track when it’s finished,” Kash said as he shook his hand.
“Will do.” He replied.
“Yes thank you so much,” Jessica said as she hugged Faze One.
Jessica was anxious as she and Kash walked out to the limo hand in hand. She wasn’t excited about seeing her family and dealing with their particular brand of nonsense.
