It was a normal day for the people of Normal Valley. That was, until the mayor of said town, Norm, decided to talk to his old enemy, the Maestro.

As he started to walk towards the door of the house, Norm started to doubt himself. Maybe this wasn't a good idea, he thought.

"No," He said to himself. "You *must.*"

He knocked on the door softly. Shortly after, the door swung open, but surprisingly no one was there. Norm decided to walk in anyway. Suddenly, a bolt of lightning lit up the whole house. The mayor frantically looked around, trying to figure out what was going on. He turned back to find the Maestro standing there in front of him. Startled, he jumped back slightly.

"Hi there," Maestro said cheerfully.

"*How* and *why* do you keep doing that?" Norm asked.

"Doing what?" Maestro replied.

The mayor looked around, trying to find the right words.

"Oh forget it. Anyway, I need to talk to you."

"Okay," Maestro said hesitantly. "About what?"

Norm sighed. "I would like to apologize for any problems I've caused with you in the past few months."

Maestro smiled. "Okay then. Might I ask what exactly made you want to do this?"

"I was hoping you would say that."

Suddenly, music filled the room. The mayor turned away.

"Where did that come from?" Maestro asked.

Shortly after, Norm turned back around and began to sing.

"I saw the cover and I judged the book. I turned away without a second look. But now, now, now, I see a brand new you!"

Maestro's eyes widened. "Oh, no."

"I told myself I better run and hide," The mayor continued. "I never noticed what was there inside. But now, now, now I see a brand new you!"

"Well, this has been great, but maybe you should-"

"And I can't stop myself from loving every itty bitty thing you do!"


Before Maestro could protest any further, the door opened behind him and what was most likely the entire population of Normal Valley entered the room. They all seemed to be singing back-up for the mayor in this little musical number he was performing. Norm continued to sing.

"I didn't know where I was meant to be. I figured no one would be there for me. But now, now, now I see a brand new you!"

"You, you, I see a brand new you!" The townspeople sang.

Maestro thought about the situation and decided, 'If you can't beat them, join them… IN SONG.'

"I never knew that you could understand," They both sang. "But I looked up and you reached out your hand. And now, now, now, I see a brand new you!"

For the next two minutes and thirty-seven seconds, Maestro, the mayor, and the people of Normal Valley sang and danced like they were in a Broadway musical. After the song ended, the mayor looked over at Maestro.

"Now do you understand?" He asked.

Maestro paused for a minute.

"Not really, no."

The mayor sighed. "Well then. Okay everyone. ONE MORE TIME!"
