Ghost pulled open the heavy wooden door, while Steve managed his crutches, as they entered the club. They could see that Zach and Trevor were here, too. Zach, Calvin, and R. J. were up on the stage, rehearsing, and Trevor was at the bar, eating a sandwich.

No one said a word at first, as Steve and Ghost made their way over to the bar…they just stared at them. There was still a little tension between them all, except R. J., as he was friends with everyone he met. He did finally look over to say hey, and waved.

“Where’s Kinsey?” Ghost asked Trevor.

Still being a bit shy around people he didn’t know well, Trevor just pointed toward the office.

“Thanks, Trevor,” Ghost said, catching Trevor’s eye for a second.

Trevor hadn’t actually ever spoken to Ghost, before…not one on one, but Ghost was sensing a strange feeling about him, though, and it made him uncomfortable. It was like this guy was scared to even have thoughts like he was having. Then it came to him…this guy wanted to get him alone and kiss him.

Ghost looked startled, as he realized what Trevor was thinking, even though Trevor had repressed the thought quickly. Ghost looked intently into Trevor’s eyes, and shook his head, no. Trevor immediately looked down, embarrassed.

Steve had seen what happened, and knew without asking, that Trevor had silently hit on Ghost, and Ghost had turned him down. He took hold of Ghost’s arm and pulled him toward the office with him. As they went down the hall, he stopped and said quietly, to Ghost,

“I know what that was about,” he sighed. “It’s ok, Ghost…I know now that you can’t control other people’s thoughts, just read them. I know guys would love to have you…who wouldn’t…but, thank you for turning him down.”

Ghost looked down, his hair falling in front of his eyes, but Steve took Ghost’s face, raised it up, and kissed him, with such love, that Ghost melted into Steve’s arms. He gasped, and wanted Steve again…right now, right here. Steve felt the same, but whispered, “Later.”

But, Ghost took Steve’s hand, leading him farther down the hall, to the storage room, shutting the door behind them.

“Ghost, we’re at the club…we can’t…”

Ghost’s eyes were fevered, his touch on Steve’s skin insistent, and Steve didn’t care anymore. They sank down onto the carpet. Ghost took Steve gently, but surely, to the edge, and then over. Steve teased Ghost with his kisses and touches, until he moaned, crying out Steve’s name, as he knew nothing but pleasure from Steve’s hands.

As they lay there, catching their breath, they heard whispering and scurrying out in the hallway. They started laughing at what they’d just done, and that everyone probably knew all about it, already. There was nothing to do about it, though, except open the door and come out.

As they did, they saw Zach and Trevor hurrying back down the hall, but R. J. was standing right in front of them. Kinsey was in his office, across the way, pretending to work, but kept glancing over at them, trying not to smile.

“Dudes,” R. J. said, a big smile on his face. “Y’all were making so much noise in there, we thought for sure something was wrong. Guess y’all were just getting it on, big time, huh?” He continued to stand there and stare.

Steve glared at him, “Go…now…” and pointed down the hall, away from them, and R. J. took off.

Steve walked across the hall, with Ghost right behind him, where they eased their way into Kinsey’s office. They just stood there, waiting for Kinsey to lay into them.

Kinsey finally looked up, shook his head, saying simply…”I wish I was young and brazen, again,” and he smiled.

They let out a breath of relief. “Kinsey…” Steve began, but Kinsey held up his hand.

“Why are y’all here? Did you come all the way out here, just to fuck in my storeroom, or what? Y’all have a home…do it there.”

“We already did,” Ghost blurted out.

Steve and Kinsey both turned and stared at Ghost, then started laughing.

“Kinsey, we just came to say hi, and say I can drive just fine…and we were tired of staying home, so…that’s all,” Steve said.

“Uh-huh,” Kinsey said, “well, I have work to do, y’all leave me be, or I’ll find some chores for you both to do.”

“What kind of chores?” Ghost asked.

Kinsey leaned back in his chair, raising his eyebrows. Steve pushed Ghost out the door in a hurry. “Sorry for bothering you, Kinsey. Go, Ghost…just go,” Steve said. They made their way back into the club.

The others were back on the stage, going through their numbers. Ghost headed over to the side of the stage, to the wall, to do some writing. Steve just pulled up a chair, right in front of the stage, crossed his arms, and just stared at Trevor and Zach, knowing it would make them uncomfortable.

They eyed each other, and Zach could hardly concentrate on the songs. Calvin kept starting a song, but Zach kept messing it up, so he had to start over. Trevor was sitting on the stage, trying to encourage Zach. R. J. was in his own world, playing his bass notes, over and over.

“Hey, Zach,” Calvin shouted, “what’s the hell’s the matter…get it together, man.” 

Zach tried again, then said to Steve, “Man, why are you here? Why are you staring at me?”

Steve just smiled.

“Don’t pay any attention to Steve, Zach,” Calvin said, “he stares at everybody, and he doesn’t like anyone, anyway.

R. J. said, mostly to himself, “He likes me…”

Trevor was listening to this exchange, but kept glancing down at Ghost. He was having feelings he thought he’d never have, now that he and Zach were together. He loved Zach, loved that Zach had shown him what love was, and how to love. He owed Zach his very life. But, this Ghost person was awakening something in him that he’d never knew existed…lust.

He absentmindedly licked his lips, as he gazed at Ghost, then jerked back to watch Zach sing. Then, his eyes would wander back to Ghost. Zach noticed, and was having even more trouble with the songs.

Steve noticed too, and was on the verge of getting up and yanking Trevor off the stage, and beating the shit out of him.

Ghost knew exactly what was going on behind him, as he wrote on the wall. He heard everyone’s thoughts, one after the other, and could feel Steve’s anger building. Crap…I gotta do something about this… he thought, when he could get a word of his own thoughts in amongst all the others. He finished drawing his picture of Spirit, then stood up and hollered, as loud as he could.

“Stop it…all of you!”

They all jumped, and looked over at Ghost.

“Y’all are making my head explode! You,” he pointed to Trevor, “stop thinking we’re going to hook up…it’s never gonna happen.”

Then he pointed to Zach, “And you, sing your damn songs…and work harder to satisfy your lover, or you will lose him someday.”

Looking at Calvin, he said, “You, Calvin…keep practicing, and give Zach a break…he can’t start singing, until you actually play the right notes.”

R. J was playing a dirge on the bass, scared Ghost was going to say something bad about him, but Ghost said, “R. J….your bass is sounding fierce tonight.”

Then he turned to Steve, “Let’s go home,” and his smile melted Steve’s heart. He reached out for Ghost, and they headed for the door.

“Bye, Kinsey,” Ghost said, as they passed.

Kinsey had seen the whole thing. Everyone just froze for a minute, watching as Steve and Ghost went out the door. Then they shuffled around, looking embarrassed that they’d gotten called out on all their thoughts and feelings.

Except Kinsey…he was laughing so hard, he could hardly keep standing. “Oh, my God,” he finally sputtered. “Ghost sure can tell it like it is.” He looked at them all. “Take heed, guys, you may think Ghost is weird, but you can’t ever put anything past that little psychic.” He went back to his office, still laughing.

As Steve and Ghost got outside, Steve burst out laughing, too. “God, Ghost…that was incredible what you just did. You had them all nailed, with your dead on truth. And…and..” he almost choked…”what you said to Calvin, was the funniest thing I ever heard. Man, he was just murdering those songs.”

“Well,” Ghost said, “they were hurting my ears with all the noise they were thinking, and Calvin’s playing was really bad.”

“I know, I know…” Steve said.

They walked on down the block, to see Terry. Steve wanted to ask about recording in his little studio, soon.

Rocky Mountain High – Song Lyric Sunday – Mountain

Rocky Mountain High – Song Lyric Sunday – Mountain

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/02/16/sitting-on-top-of-the-world/

***

Today for SLS, Jim has asked for songs about mountains or hills. Thanks, Jim!

***

This song has had an interesting history, it seems. For a short time it was banned by radio stations, because they thought it promoted drug use. Later however, Colorado officials formally accepted the song as one of two of the states’s official songs.

Here’s a short part of the article I found on this, and John Denver’s statement.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Mountain_High

The song briefly became controversial that year when the U.S. Federal Communications Commission was permitted by a legal ruling to censor music deemed to promote drug abuse. Numerous radio stations cautiously banned the song until Denver publicly explained that the “high” was his innocent description of the sense of peace he found in the Rockies. In 1985, Denver testified before Congress in the Parents Music Resource Center hearings about his experience:

This was obviously done by people who had never seen or been to the Rocky Mountains, and also had never experienced the elation, celebration of life or the joy in living that one feels when he observes something as wondrous as the Perseid meteor shower on a moonless, cloudless night, when there are so many stars that you have a shadow from the starlight, and you are out camping with your friends, your best friends, and introducing them to one of nature’s most spectacular light shows for the first time.[4]

***

“Rocky Mountain High”, by John Denver, was released from his album, “Rocky Mountain High”, in 1972. It was written by John Denver and Mike Taylor, and is on the RCA Records label.

***

He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Comin’ home to a place he’d never been before
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for every doorWhen he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hangin’ by a song
But the string’s already broken and he doesn’t really care
It keeps changin’ fast and it don’t last for longBut the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
Rocky mountain high
(Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
He saw everything as far as you can see
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
Talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)

Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
I know he’d be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky mountain high

It’s a Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rain fire in the sky
Friends around the campfire and everybody’s high
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)

Well, we finally reached the current year of finding songs. It’s still very early in the year for brand new songs, but I did find this one. I like it a lot, as I like a lot of her songs, and the video is really cute and sweet. Also the video of her telling a little about how the song was made was very interesting.

***

“Good Morning”, by Meghan Trainor, was released February 8, 2019, from her album, “The Love Train”. It was written by Meghan Trainor, Andrew Wells, and Daryl Sabara, and is on the Epic label.

It features her father, Gary Trainer, playing some of the music parts. He is a music teacher and organist.

Three Things Challenge # 2

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/02/15/three-things-challenge-pl2/

***

Today’s prompt: apples, laser, Michigan

***

I’m combining these two challenges in one today. We have SOCS hosted by Linda G. Hill, and the Three Things Challenge hosted by Paula. You can find details and other entries at the two above links.

***

Trying to think of something using these three words that pretty much have no connection – apples, laser, & Michigan, is making me yawn.

You see, the 3TC and the SOCS challenge both are today – Saturday.

Three Things Challenge & Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge are writing prompts, and I kind of want to combine them, because I can’t think of anything to do with either of them separately.

My cat Cricket is staring at me, wanting me to get up and get her something…probably food. She won’t eat apples, though, or any people food, except maybe a tiny bite of bacon or something once in awhile. There isn’t any apple flavored cat food that I know of.

We don’t live in Michigan, either. I did hear on the news that the cold weather up there froze some apples on the trees, which then they called ghost apples. That’s because of the ice that covered them, then the apples turned to mush, leaving behind the frozen ice form of the apple. The pictures looked pretty.

What’s any of that got to do with lasers? Nothing at all. We have a cat toy that shines a red laser dot for Cricket to chase around. Except she doesn’t. She just looks at it for a minute. Then she yawns.

Here’s a photo I took of her yawning one day.

***

Okay, so…songs from 2009 to 2018 is our prompt suggestion today. Thanks, Bee!

This one was a hard one for me to find something. There are a few songs I like from this time period, but most on lists I saw, I never heard of. I don’t listen to much of the newer music…my radio is always tuned to the oldies stations. I know I’ve posted this one before, but it is a good song, talking about love, which after all is the theme of this month’s challenge. I know it missed the exact date by one year earlier, but then since it kept climbing the charts later on, I think it will work just fine.

***

“1234”, by the Plain White T’s, was released in 2008. It climbed the charts and reached #34 on Billboard’s Top 100, in 2009 when the video was released. Since then it’s gone platinum in 2011. It was written by Tom Higgenson, and can be found on their album, “Big Bad World”, on the Hollywood label.

***

Early the next morning, Ghost woke first. He was feeling better, and he watched Steve sleep for awhile. He tried to memorize Steve’s face…a favorite thing he liked to do. He traced his fingers over Steve’s brow, his cheekbones, his nose, lips, and chin. He wanted to draw a picture of Steve…and something else nagged at him. He couldn’t quite get why he needed to feel Steve’s face…to remember it.

Then, Steve opened his eyes, to see Ghost, right up in his face. “Ghost,” he breathed, “what are you doing?”

Ghost kissed him, then said, “Remembering you.”

Steve looked confused. “Why?”

Ghost blinked a few times. “Just ’cause I need to, Steve…’cause…what if I forget?”

“You’re scaring me, Ghost,” Steve said. “What are you saying?” He searched Ghost’s eyes for some meaning to what Ghost had said.

“I don’t know,” Ghost said, softly. “Just, something makes me need to look at you. I can’t explain it.”

“Well, stop staring at me, now,” Steve shivered a bit. “I’m here and you’re here, and we’ll always be here. You can look at me later.”

“Okay, but I’m going to draw your picture.”

“That’s nice, Ghost, but can we get some coffee first?”

“Yeah, I’ll fix it…and Spirit woke me up ’cause he’s hungry.” He went into the kitchen to start the coffee brewing.

Steve lay there a bit longer, trying to make some kind of sense out of what Ghost was talking about. The only thing he could come up with was Ghost was afraid he wouldn’t be able to see him, someday…why? And, then his next thought scared the hell out of him…Ghost was going blind …His one eye was already damaged…and his brain…Is he having a premonition of both his eyes going dark, in the future? Oh, please God, no! …

Ghost couldn’t even clearly see it, in his mind’s eye; he couldn’t see what was the matter yet…and he almost never was cloudy on his visions. They always came to him clear and fully formed. This is bad… Steve’s heart pounded… Please, not in this lifetime…and never!  Maybe it is just something that happened in a past life, just coming into blurry focus, and he was just now sensing a manifestation of the former life’s problems.

“Ok, please…just let it be something like that,” he begged. “Whatever it is, it’s effecting him now, though.”

Steve didn’t want to bring any of this up, with Ghost, but he did want to be on watch for any other signs…to do whatever he could to prevent this happening. He scrubbed at his face, threw off the covers, and got out of bed. He forced himself to stop thinking about it.

He could hear Ghost talking to the cat, and getting mugs out for their coffee.  He sounds cheerful, at least… He went into the bathroom, to freshen up, then went to get his coffee. His mug was on the counter, and saw that Ghost was out on the front porch, in the swing. He tried to figure out how to get himself, on the crutches, and his coffee out there, but knew it was impossible.

“Ghost,” he called out. “Ghost, come here a minute…carry my coffee out there, would ‘ya?”

Ghost came in and smiled, “Ya need some help?”

“Yeah, guess I do,”

“You’re getting good using those, but ya need more hands,” Ghost said, as he took Steve’s mug out, and held open the screen for him.

“I know, ” Steve said, “and that’s what you’re here for.”

Spirit was playing in the grass just in front of the porch. The snow storm had not quite finished off all the grass, but it was barely hanging on. Leaves were still falling, making a thick, leafy carpet of orange and red, over the yard. They watched the cat pouncing on, and in the leaves.

“This is nice, Ghost. After that freak blizzard, guess this is what…Indian Summer?”

“I like the fall, Steve. There’s pumpkins, and it’s not too hot or too cold…and there’s Halloween. Oh, are we gonna wear a costume to the club?”

“I don’t know, maybe, if everyone else does, I guess we could. I’ll ask around.”

“I know what you can be,” said Ghost. “You can wrap up the rest of you like your leg, and be a mummy,” he laughed.

“Yeah, real funny,” Steve grinned. “About as funny as the time you wore a sheet, and went as a ghost.”

“That was a good one, that time I did, though,” Ghost said. “Nobody knew it was me, ’cause they thought it’d be too obvious…and they got a big surprise, when I took it off, and went boo!” he giggled, remembering.

“Yeah, that was funny. What did I go as, that time? I already forgot.”

“Um…wasn’t it a pirate…or was that another time?” Ghost said. Steve thought a minute…” Wait…it was when I went as an old lady…with that gray wig and the cane, and everyone thought I was Kinsey’s mother.”

“Yeah, that’s it,” Ghost laughed. “You looked so real, too.”

“Well, I can’t disguise myself much this time, everybody knows I got a cast on my leg. You got any suggestions?” Steve asked.

“For tricking people? I can’t think of anything right now, except just decorating your cast and crutches, and wearing black and orange.”

What about you?” Steve asked.

Ghost thought a couple of minutes. “Maybe, I’ll be one of those papa guys.”

“Papa guys? What’s that?” Steve asked.

“Oh, you know…the ones with the cameras…I can take pictures of everyone, like they do of those famous people. I’d just dress regular, and have a hat on, that says ‘press’, or whatever magazine I’m from. Then later, I can put the pictures of everybody on the wall,” Ghost said. “What do you think?”

Steve was nodding his approval. “I kinda like that idea, Ghost…it’s a good one.”

They finished their coffee, and went back inside to eat some cold cereal and fruit for breakfast. Then, Steve was ready to try driving his car. Ghost helped him in, then stood back to watch.

“It shouldn’t be too hard,” Steve said. Since it was his left leg in a cast, and the car was automatic, he had no trouble at all. “Piece ‘o cake,” he said, when he’d driven up and down their road, a few times. “Okay, hop in, we’ll go to town…see Kinsey, Terry…whatever. I’m tired of being stuck out here.”

“Yeah me, too,” Ghost said, getting in the car.

About halfway down the highway to town, Steve looked over at Ghost. “Uh, guess we didn’t bother to get dressed. We forgot…we were in such a hurry to leave.” He laughed at what they actually had on. He’d pulled on pajama pants, with the side seam split, to make way for his cast, and a faded band t-shirt, and no shoes. Ghost only had on what he’d grabbed from off the floor that morning…his raggedy tie-dyed t-shirt, that he always wore, and his striped knee socks…no shoes, or pants.

“Well, I don’t care…they seen me like this before…and seen us both, with nothing on…and they already know we’re weird…so, keep going,” Ghost laughed.

“So be it, then,” Steve said. By now, they were already at the club, anyway. Steve parked in front of the Yew, and they got out. Ghost waved over at the hardware store gang, who were out, as usual, on the porch.

“Ya forget something there, Ghost?” one of the guys hollered over.

“Nope, not today,” Ghost said. They all laughed.

He and Steve went inside to see Kinsey.

This is something new I’m trying, called the Three Things Challenge. Paula has taken on the hosting duties for this. You can find details at the above link. Thanks, Paula!

What happens is she will list 3 words for us daily to make something of, be it a story, poem, or whatever we want.

The 3 words for today are: seashells, letter, and yoga

***

While doing yoga on the beach

My hand stretched out in a lengthy reach

Got distracted by pretty seashells

Meditations came with waves and swells

Arranged the shells with letters formed

Spelled yoga – now the sand adorned

Feline Friday – Wink

This little kitty is named Wink.

He is the resident cat at the vet’s office, where we take our cat Cricket. Cricket wasn’t feeling good last week, so we took her in for treatment. All is better now.

I asked about the office kitty, and took his picture. They said he is blind in one eye, so they called him Wink. He’s such a good kitty, nice and friendly to everyone that comes in, people and animals of all kinds. He comes over to say hi. He has a soft little bed up on the counter, too. I showed him (and the receptionist) the little video of Floyd playing with his toy, and they liked it, too. Wink was really interested in this, and wants a toy like that, too. 🙂

Hey, look! We’ve entered the 2000s now! Thanks for all the fun prompts this month, Bee! We still have half a month to go, too, with even more interesting prompts to come!

This song is one of Creed’s that I really like. I like a lot of their songs, too. Here we have Scott Stapp writing and singing about the time he found out he was to become a father. He is awestruck by the fact, and that his life is about to change…he’ll have new responsibilities to his child, showing him everything good the world has to offer, including love.

***

“With Arms Wide Open”, by Creed, was released in 2000 from their album, “Human Clay”. It was written by Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti, and is on the Wind-up label.

[Verse 1]
Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face

[Chorus]
With arms wide open under the sunlight
Welcome to this place I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open

[Verse 2]
Well I don’t know if I’m ready
To be the man I have to be
I’ll take a breath, I’ll take her by my side
We stand in awe, we’ve created life

[Chorus]
With arms wide open under the sunlight
Welcome to this place I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open now everything has changed
I’ll show you love, I’ll show you everything

With arms wide open
Wide open

[Verse 3]
If I had just one wish only one demand
I hope he’s not like me, I hope he understands
That he can take this life and hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world with arms wide open

[Chorus]
With arms wide open under the sunlight
Welcome to this place I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open now everything has changed
I’ll show you love, I’ll show you everything

With arms wide open
With arms wide open

For today’s love song, we are looking back at the 1990s. Thanks, Bee!

This is just a really pretty love song, and one I’ve liked ever since I first heard it back then.

***

“Love is on the Way”, by Saigon Kick, was released in 1992 from their album, “The Lizard”. It was written by Jason Bieler, and is on the Third Stone/Atlantic label.

Lonely sidewalks, silent night
Bring the evening, deep inside
Hold me darlin, touch me now
Let the feeling, free tonight

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight, baby,
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes,
Let’s give it one more try tonight

Time of season, wipes the tears
No rhyme or reason, no more fears
All the dreaming, far behind
You are here now, everything’s alright

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight, baby,
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes,
Let’s give it one more try tonight

And in the morning I’ll be gone away
All the things I left behind
If you need me I’ll come night or day
Lets stop the hands of time

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight, baby,
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes,
Let’s give it one more try tonight

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight, baby,
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes,
Let’s give it one more try tonight
