Drop The Beat
Soon after my random confession to Emily, we both went to bed. I woke up the next morning with the urge to play the drums. I quickly got ready for the day and grabbed my drumsticks. A beat immediately came to mind, but I didn’t have anything to play it on! I started pacing back and forth in frustration, Then I stopped.
Is Nick awake? I wondered.
I knocked gently on the adjoining door. It was opened by Nick immediately. He saw the drumsticks in my hand and I saw him holding his guitar.
“Wow, I guess you’re thinking what I’m thinking.” he said.
I grinned at him. “I guess I am.”
“Well, let’s go!”
We headed outside to the tour bus, which had a drum set in it. I dropped a beat so fast that Nick just stared at me for a second. When I finished he asked me where I had thought of it.
“I don’t know. I just woke up with it this morning.” I said.
Suddenly Nick’s eyes lit up. He started to play his guitar and I started to play the drums.
Before we knew it we had written a song.
“Wow.” I said.
