Rachel was jogging in Central Park, her earplugs in her ears and her favourite Broadway songs on. It was 7 o'clock in the morning and there was nobody else apart from a few other morning persons. She jogged every morning, it was part of her routine. And she also needed the distraction. Going to New York didn't go as she had planned. She had lived here for almost two years now and she had gone to a lot of auditions but she only had had a few small parts in little musicals, nothing big. She had thought that here talent and dedication would be enough for some bigger parts but almost everyone had turned her down. She sighed while running and decided to stop for a while. She sat down on a bench and took a few deep breaths. She sat there for a few minutes before she stood up and started jogging again. She softly sang with the song that was on, it was one of her favourites. When she came across her favourite café she took her earplugs out of her ears and walked inside. She ordered her usual, a large coffee. Then she sat down and she sipped at her coffee while she was flipping the pages of a magazine.
"Do you mind if I sit here?" She looked up and saw a tall man stand in front of her. He was really attractive with his warm cinnamon eyes and his crooked smile.
"No I don't mind" she replied while he sat down across the table. She looked down at her magazine again and continued with the article she was reading. He just looked at her while drinking is coffee.
"What are you reading?" he asked. She looked up again.
"An article about West Side Story." He looked at her with a confused look.
"West Side Story?" Her mouth fell open at his words. He couldn't be serious now, could he?
"YOU DON'T KNOW WEST SIDE STORY?" she yelled and everyone looked at them, but she didn't notice. She knew that you could read the disbelief on her face. But seriously how could he not know it. She looked at him and saw his cheeks turn red.
"Ehm...Not really...The name sounds familiar though...I just don't know where I've heard it" he said, looking down to hide his blush.
"It's a musical. One of my favourites and one of the best musicals to be honest. I love it."
"A musical?" He frowned and she nodded. Suddenly his face lit up, "Now I know why it sounded familiar! I think Kurt might have mentioned it a few times."
Now it was her time to look confused. "Kurt?" she asked. He nodded.
"Yes, he's my step-brother and he loves musicals."
"He loves musicals? You should introduce me to him!" she said excited. He rubbed his neck. "Yes maybe, I think he would love too. He loves to talk about musicals so I think you two would be great friends."
"It would be lovely to meet him sometime. But I really need to go now." she said standing up. "It was nice to meet you." She gave him a smile and he smiled back while he said goodbye to her. Then she walked out of the café, she put her earplugs back in and started jogging thinking about the man she just met and realizing she didn't even know his name.
She was at her favourite café again. The audition she had had that midday went really bad and she just needed a cup of coffee. She had her earplugs in again so no one would bother her. She closed her eyes and tried to relax while she drank her coffee and listened to her music.
"You really have a beautiful voice." Her eyes snapped open and she saw the same man as yesterday standing in front of her. She hadn't even realised she had sing along with her music. She blushed and he sat down across from her.
"I'm sorry if I scared you." His eyes were focused on hers and she felt something stir in her stomach. She loved his beautiful cinnamon eyes.
"I'm Finn by the way" She snapped out of it and tried to not look in his eyes again, feeling a little uncomfortable.
"Rachel" "She gave him a smile and he smiled back at her.
"Well Rachel, you really have a beautiful voice." She looked at her coffee and blushed.
"Thank you, I really appreciate that you think that" She sighed, thinking about her audition from that midday. They had liked her voice but not her looks.
"Is there something wrong?" Finn asked, seeing how down Rachel looked. She looked up.
"I came here to make it on Broadway and I'm auditioning constantly for everything but I just got a few small parts, and this midday I got reclined again." She sighed again.
"But you have an amazing voice! Why wouldn't they want you?" he asked, he looked upset. Rachel looked at him, not expecting this reaction from this man she had just met.
"Mostly they think my nose is too big, that I'm too small or just that I don't look like the character."
"Then they are really stupid" he said. She gave him a smile.
"You're really nice you know that?" He laughed and then his face became thoughtful. She wondered what he was thinking.
"Rachel, I want to ask you something. I just heard you sing and I really think that you have got an amazing voice. I know it is your dream to play on Broadway but what would you think of being the lead singer in a band?" He looked at her and she was confused. Where was he going with this? When she saw he was waiting for an answer she shrugged, "I don't know. I think it would be cool but actually I would really be on Broadway. It's my dream you know."
He nodded and took his back and took a paper out of it. He gave it to her and she saw it was a poster from a band who were searching for a new lead singer. She spotted Finn at the back of the poster behind the drums.
"You play the drums?" she asked. He nodded. "This is my band. We're searching for a new lead singer because our old one quit to go to a new band. There are auditions tomorrow. You can try out if you want. I know it isn't your dream but it is a chance. Just think about it." She didn't know why but she felt really comfortable with Finn and she had almost forgotten that she only knew him for a day. It was weird but nice. And maybe he was right. Maybe she should try this out. But would that mean that she give up her dream?
"And maybe if people know your better and how amazing your voice is you always can try out for musicals again. It doesn't mean you need to give up on Broadway." Could this guy read her mind or something?
"I'll think about it." She smiled one of her beaming smiles at him and he stood up.
"I need to go now, but I hope I'll see you tomorrow at the auditions. I think you'll have a really good chance." He turned around to walk away but Rachel grabbed his arm.
"Thank you Finn. You're really nice and I'll see you tomorrow." He smiled at her before walking out of the café.
So what did you think?
