A New Day For You

by Miles H. Rost

Blue eyes behind purple rimmed glasses peered from behind the auditorium door.

The 2,000 seat venue crackled with energy, with cheers for the opening band as they finished.

“Charlotte! Charlotte!”

The chant started from a far side, growing from a couple boys in the back, and slowly crashed over everyone in a wave.

“Didn’t think that a 2 year hiatus would make you more popular, did ya?”

Charlotte Tetravalova flipped around, surprised to see her agent.
“Are you ready? Looks like your band is,” her agent responded.

Charlotte smiled, tucking her glasses into her pocket.

“I’m always ready for a comeback, babe.”

Kashmir (Sweater)

by Miles H. Rost

Mark lifted his head up from his book, as he heard the sweet sounds of a cello waft over him. Within the confines of the coffee shop, this was a perfect sound at a perfect moment.

He looked around and spied the young cellist, wearing a beautiful white cashmere cable-knit sweater and a flowing brown skirt. She looked up at him through garnet-rimmed glasses and strands of wavy brown hair, smiling.

“So, I finally got your attention.”

“Cindy? Why did you want my attention?”

“You told me you didn’t like cellos. They didn’t rock.”

“Yeah?”

“I’m here to prove they can.”

The first strains of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” rose from the cello, and Mark instantly knew he was going to eat humble pie.
