Sounds of groaning and yawning from the bed was evident that Jacob was still sleeping, or he had a hangover like nothing before. He didn't really wanted to go out last night, but a couple of his friends convinced him otherwise, but he was lucky that the media had almost forgot about him, he ended up in a fight with another drunken nightgoer. The phone vibrated first, followed by the song he had as a ringtone, "Got Me Wrong", by Alice In Chains, a particular favourite of his and the first song he learned on guitar to boot. Jacob slowly grabbed the phone to answer the call.
" Listen, I don't want any excuses from you, get your ass down here! your already an hour late!!" the angered voice shouted from his phone, his manager, Henry Durden.
"Right...I'll be there..sorry man" a sigh escaped from his manager. "look Jake...I'm trying to help you...I gave you this idea, and you agreed...but lets hope it work outs, right?...see ya."
Jacob hunged up the phone, getting up and headed into his bathroom. looking into the mirror his eye was bruised and black, adding onto his hangover, it wasn't a good morning. It took him thirty minutes to get ready, he decided to wear a pair of sunglasses to cover his bruised his eye. He opted to take his acoustic guitar, he had learned that this artist he would work with was a famous pianist, to try and get their careers back on track, however, she was classically trained, and the last time he checked, he wasn't, but he has trust in his manager, after all Henry was the previous manager for the band that shall not be named.
It only took fifteen minutes, but Jacob was there, the studio he recorded his E.P. at, but he noticed a another car pulling up, a young girl and a man stepped out from the vehicle. Jacob's mind was at eased slightly. "another guy would have been too much really".
Henry was furious, Jacob still wasn't here, and to make matters worse, Terrence was already. The door opened, his asistant entered with both Terrence and the young girl. Henry stood up and shook his good friend's hand. "good to see you Terrence!...and you must be Kristina! nice to finally meet you!" Henry then shook the girl's hand. "please take a seat, Karen, please do my guests somethnig to drink, thanks" the assistant immediately left. "unfortunately, Jacob hasn't arrived yet, but while we wait, I thought that maybe you would like to listen to some of his songs, so that you know what he has done, I gave Jacob some recordings of you playing Kristina, hopefully he had watched them over the weekend" Henry laughed nervously putting Jacob's acoustic song, "you Know Me, as I Walk Away". it was a very simple song, with a blues chord progression starting with a Bb chord, with his voice singing after 15 seconds.
Jacob had finished up a cigarette, before he took his guitar and headed inside. "good morning Jake!, Mr. Durden is in his office with the classical artist" Jake nodded as he slowed his pace, hearing the song playing, Jacob grimaced and sighed, entering the room. He waited for the song to finish. "'I'm Jacob Richards" he then shook both their hands, and took a seat next to Henry. "so, what do you think?" Henry smiled as Jacob still wore the glasses to cover his bruise.
