Encore: Chapter Nine Melody's POV I had set up up some simple piano music for the background of Daisy Cafe, which I thought went well with the rain outside. It was Aida's day off, leaving me in charge. I had come early to set up while waiting for Teresa, one of the workers, to show up. I'd finished cleaning, and was just starting to start up the machines when I heard rapping on the glass.I came out of the kitchen, a little shocked, to see a couple standing in the rain under an umbrella. Running into the main room, I opened the doors for them to come in.“I'm sorry, welcome to Daisy Cafe! We haven't opened quite yet, but feel free to take a seat and come out of the rain!”The woman smiled, blue eyes sparkling as they caught the light. “Thanks hon, and sorry for intruding. This looks like a nice, quiet place.”“It is!” I smiled and made my way to the back room again. I could hear their conversation from where I was.“So, you have everyt
Encore: Chapter Eight Melody's POV It took a while to fall asleep that night. The memories rushed in my mind—I couldn't believe that I had been so open about my past, and he didn't even hear the full story. What was more shocking to me was that he had opened up to me. And even then, hadn't I nearly choked him just that morning?So much had changed in such a small amount of time. I felt as though I could trust him. That was strange to me—I didn't even trust some of my roommates.I had no idea that the Music Meister had feelings of any sort to Black Canary. I'd known she was involved in the incident, but I didn't how much. I was bothered by how I had felt when I heard him speak of her. Something about the tone make me feel...angry? Intimidated? I had no idea what the word was, or even if there was a word for it, but I didn't like the feeling—I was surprised by it.The news of Two-Face's escape bothered me. Usually, when a villain escaped, I just shrugged it off,
Encore: Chapter Seven Meister's POV The beam of the flashlight cut across the hallway of the sub-basement as Mina aimed it at different doors.“That leads to the costume closet—seamstresses come in every Friday to make new costumes. That's the prop room,” She said as she pointed her flashlight at the door, “and straight ahead is where the furniture is stored.”She handed me the flashlight so she could open the large doors. Once we stepped in, she closed it behind us and walked further into the room. I heard a click, and Mina's face was bathed in a warm light from a lamp in the room.I was amazed at the variety of couches, tables, and chairs in the room. She wove her way between the furniture, turning on lamps until the room was filled with a warm glow.“They've been kept in great condition...” I noted, running my hand over the arm of a plush seat.“Especially when you consider that they're in a theater. No one comes down here that o
Encore: Chapter Six Meister's POV I could still remember the tune, and it still broke my heart. I remember the look in her eyes and the way she'd sung the song.I played the notes how I remember she had sang the song; a G, an F, an E; B, and then two C's followed that.Making a quick note on a notebook, I returned my attention to the piano.“Look at him...” I sang under my breath, “Save the day...”Placing my hands on the keys, I picked out the next few notes.I stopped when I heard footsteps in the hall and reached for my sunglasses to put them on. I didn't expect anyone to come to rehearsal just ten minutes after the front doors had been unlocked.The door fell open with a mighty crash, revealing the image of a furious Mina. I was amused, to some degree, but couldn't show it.“You're early,” I said, keeping my head turned towards the piano. I heard her march to my side.“Is your name Harrison Webber?” She demanded.
