This is just a little idea I had whilst watching Burlesque yesterday. Hope you like it :)
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Tess wandered slowly through the empty club, savouring every small detail. To lose the place would be like losing a limb, but that was exactly what was about to happen. In 48 hours this would all be taken away from her, the only thing that had ever really meant something.
She carried on, traversing her memories. Her whole life, almost, was mapped out in this room. She had made a name for herself here. The girls had become like a family to her. But that was all going to be snatched away from her. But of course, she wasn't going to just roll over and take it. Oh no, she would fight to the end. Giving up was simply not in her nature, not when it came to something this important.
Tess was strong, she could weather anything. But what she really needed now, much as she hated to admit it, was a man. Someone who could hold her and make it all go away, even if it was just for a moment. And not just any man. Sean. He always made her feel better, always put things right. If she was completely honest, she was in love with him. Head over heels.
But they could never be more than friends. The best of friends. She knew that their relationship could never be all she truly wanted, but she also knew that he would always be there for her anyway. That was consolation enough.
She took a deep breath, shaking herself from her reverie. Still wishing she had someone to go home to, she stepped out of the door to face whatever was thrown at her next.
You never really want anything,
But what you really need is everything,
I'll give you something only life can bring,
The calm inside the storm,
Love me a little, love me long - Cyndi Lauper
