    Best Thing That’s Ever Happened To Me

    “Yeah?  Well I stuck my foot in it just last week,” someone else in that couch muttered.

    Jo grinned at them, and nodded her head in sympathy.  “So this is for us, then.  And I’m adapting some of the lyrics, btw.  Sing along if you want to.”  They raised their glasses to her as Jo and the rest of the trio strummed the first chords of the song, “Just You and I.”

    “Let’s get drunk, I’ll pull my heart up through my mouth … the past three years have been hard for us, no doubt.

    So let’s raise a glass to better years.  Let all the things that we need to overcome bring home to us ‘cause me and you, we can hold this out.”

    She looked directly at Becca, tears in her eyes.

    “Only you understand how I’m feeling up here.  And I know I can tell you anything.  You won’t judge, you’re just listenin’, yeah.  Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me.

    Cause my darling, you and I, could take over the world.  One step at a time, just you and I.  Cause you’re the only one who brings light just like the sun.  One step at a time, just you and I.”

    She skipped a few lines of the lyric as she swallowed.  The trio continued playing behind her, and some in the audience were beginning to sing along.

    “…And takin’ trips on a train, so I’d like to drop down now to see ya.  And we can paint the town… give me another shot…  Cuz I thought I could never keep up … Bank account sez now I can keep up.

    And  I know I can tell you anything… You won’t judge, you’re just listenin, yeah, ‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me.

    Cause my darling, you and I, Could take over the world.  One step at a time, just you and I. You’re the only one who brings light just like the sun.  One step at a time, just you and I.

    I’m tired of chasing paper.  Posing for a screen.  Been saving up for years now.  Just to get to you my dear.  Tho you’re far from my home. This ain’t no weekend buzz.

    Yeah, my heart grows fonder, must be this city love, for you, city girl.

    Cause my darling, you and I, could take over the world, one step at a time, just you and I…”

    The crowd had, by now, started to sing in earnest, and Jo simply continued to strum and whisper the words, looking straight at Becca.  Sweet Becca.

    Becca stood and mounted the stage also.  She pulled a high chair next to Jo, and whispered, “Nice start.  So, why don’t we get outta here, so we can talk?”

        Thanks,

        Had to get it out of my head.

        U, on the other hand, are awesome. I see you flex there, with Gentleman Jack. I mean, what can’t you do?

        You do the best stuff here, Blackbird.

          Hey Skydancer, Nice to be in touch again. What of yours should I read tonight or whenever you get this request? Presently, just so you’ll know how to guide me to the stories you think I’d enjoy, I’m in the headspace of being on the edge of a story about to birth. It’s a tale about Anne Lister’s watch and how she behaves with, or toward it. The watch has power. It came from someplace special and came especially to her. For all those reasons and more I’d like to know Anne Lister’s watch’s origin story,

          My sincere thanks for your compliment on my Gentleman Jack series. I’ve been off writing many other types of things and have been away from even thinking about fanfiction until, as Anne Lister might say, “Good Lord.”

          My “Good Lord” moment was when the characters hooked me during episode three of Gentleman Jack.

          Okay, recommendations of what of yours I should read.

          Be well, Skydancer. The moon is out tonight.

          Blackbird

        Thanks, took a while to get it together.

        Yup, you guessed it. The train ride was and will be the piece de resistance of this whole thing, in my mind, that I found that I could not not write down.

        Hope all is well!
