Kelly's big opening night came and went and she was on top of the world. Not only was she able to see CATS but she got to be IN the show. That night after the show she and her mother Mary went out and had supper with the cast and they all had a wonderful time. The cast even gave them front row seats for the rest of the shows while they were in town.
For two weeks Mary and Kelly Ann attended the shows and went out to dinner with the cast. Then the day came when the show had to move on to the next city and it was a sad day for everyone.
Kelly couldn't stop crying as she hugged the cast good bye. She and her mother had made an enormous cake for the cast that they presented to them on the last night of the show. The cake was a replica of the junkyard complete with Old Deuteronomy's tire.
"Hey Kelly, would you like to take a walk with me?" Kevin asked nervously.
Kelly looked over at her mom, "Would it be okay?" she asked.
"Sure," she said with a nod, "Just don't wonder off to far."
"We won't," they said and off they went.
As they began to walk down the street Kevin took a hold of Kelly's hand and she blushed. They had become very good friends in the short time that they had known each other. They talked about anything and everything all the time, they were inseparable. But something about this last night was different from the other nights they'd been together; perhaps it was because it was the last night and Kelly knew he and the rest of the cast would be leaving very soon.
"I'm really going to miss you Kelly." He said as they walked.
"I'm going to mess you too. These last two weeks have been a dream come true for me. How can I ever thank you? She asked.
Kevin had a gleam in his eye as he answered her, "Oh, I may have an idea about that." He said.
They hadn't gone very far when they came to a quaint little coffee house with out door tables. It was a warn summer's night with a gentle breeze carrying the scent of coffee threw the air. As they sat down a waiter took their order. "So what's your idea?" asked Kelly after the waiter left.
"I'm sorry?" Questioned Kevin. He was caught up in his own thoughts of Kelly and how much he was going to miss her.
Kelly wasn't upset with Kevin but instead let out a sweet laugh and raised both of her eyebrows in a matter of fact matter. "Your idea, you said you had an idea on how I could thank you."
“Oh yea, duh." Now it was Kevin's turn to blush a bit and they both laughed Then he continued, "Well, I was wondering," he paused as the waiter brought their order, then he continued. "If I gave you my home and cell
phone numbers would you call me sometimes? I'd really love it if we could stay in touch while I'm on the road."
