Jake quickly got dressed after his shower, and headed down the stairs of the sleazy motel..he had an appointment with some musician or something like that.
He hailed a cab, and told the driver where to take him as he stepped into the backseat.
Jake checked his phone for any missed calls or messages, but there were none.
"No-one ever knows my name, When I pray for sun it rains...! I'm so sick of wastin' time, But nothing's moving in my mind, Inspiration can't be found, I get up and fall but..." Kate shouted in the mic while the crowd shouted along the lyrics.
"What is that you are listening to?" asked Jake, as he stretched his hands behind his head.
"Some live concert, don't know her name..but I like it." said the cabbie, as he sang along with the song.
"Do mine turning it off, it's giving me a headache." said Jake, as he looked at the window.
The driver muttered under his breath, as he turned the radio down, as they continued along the street.
"I'm alive! I'm alive! Oh yeah, Between the good and bad's where you'll find me...! Reaching for heaven, I will fight and I'll sleep when I die... I live my life, I'm ALIVE!" Kate shouted into her mic as the audience shouted along.
The cab pulled over at the studio, "Here we are fella, five sixty eight." said the cabbie, as Jake stepped out.
He pulled some loose change from his pocket and handed the driver six dollars, "Keep the change."
"Oh boy a big tipper." said the driver as he pulled away giving Jake the finger.
Jake sighed and walked inside the office, telling the Secretary about his appointment.
Eric and Dodger sat down in the mayor's office. "How long?" Dodger asked. "30 minutes...." Eric responded.
The young woman walked inside the room and introduced herself to Jake, who took her hand in his, but felt no connection.
The two of them shared her limo, as he interviewed her about her upcoming album and background, growing up in town,etc.
Once the limo returned and let Jake off, he thanked the young woman for the interview..who in return gave Jake her number.
They exchanged goodbyes and Jake walked off down the sidewalk, crumbling the phone number up in his hand and tossing it on the ground.
He pulled a small black book out and scratched off the woman's name from the list.
Eric and dodger finished their photo shoot, and walked out. "Good photo shoot.... Why is this a day off, if we had something to do?" Eric asked. They laughed, and walked off.
Jake stopped at a coffee shop, and went inside, ordering a small black coffee and a doughnut to go.
He made his way to the park, sipping on the coffee and nearly gulping down the fresh glazed doughnut.
dodger and Eric stepped out of the car, and walked into the park. "I'm hungry, wanna get something to eat?" Eric asked. "You've been very hungry lately...." Dodger said. They walkd past a man with a coffee and doughnut, and Eric felt a little suspicious.
