The future

"We should do something...since you're here." Charlotte knew it was a last minute thing, but Emily was in town. And how long could they long over a sleeping baby at Emily's parents. Charlotte had found Emily in the nursery.

"God, yes, lets get out of here." Emily physically took Charlotte's hand. This was strange. Obviously, they weren't exactly close. After all, Charlotte lived with Emily's ex-boyfriend. "What do you have in mind?"

"Well," Charlotte knew she had to be pleasant and full of surprises. "You want to go to a club?"

"What club?" Emily almost laughed.They met the guys downstairs.

"I hear Floyd's got a band." Charlotte told her.

"Floyd?"

"Yeah, he and Gordy have been playing together. Just the two of them. Its not really a club, but kind of. Its dark. People play pool there." She smiled then with a shrug.

"Gordy's in a band?" Emily looked as if she didn't believe her.

"They get together ever so often. Its not a paying gig, but no one boos them, off the stage." Charlotte couldn't stop smiling about it.

"What about Rosco, when is he going to play for us?" Emily looked at Rosco then who had been talking to Archie downstair. He looked at her with his eyes wide shut.

"What are you two talking about?" He squinted then as he reached for his keys.

"Just about you, babe." Charlotte grinned more as she leaned into him. "Wondering when you'll play with Gordy and Floyd."

"As soon as I can find that guitar in that mess of ours." He peered at her.

"He's just not a scruffy as I remember." Emily laughed as she put her arm around Charlotte.

"Ha, ha..very funny, Em." Rosco pursed his lips.

"Come on, lets go." Charlotte was trying her best to have a good-time here. No need to bring up how Rosco used to be.
