The fans in the arena erupted in deafening cheers as Sari belted out the final notes of her latest #1 hit.  It was one of those my-man-done-me-wrong uptempo numbers that her admirers ate up like candy.  Her bestselling single ever, largely due to the rumors.   Was Rowan, her longtime love, cheating?  Everyone wondered.

Her bodyguards rushed her into a waiting car, where she fell, exhausted, into Rowan’s arms. This was her farewell tour.   In a month, they’d disappear. It was time for her real life to begin.  She closed her eyes, dreaming of the South Pacific.

  1. Sounds like she had some great experiences as a singer. I hope he boyfriend Rowan isn’t cheating, but I guess as a celebrity her life would be full of rumours. I nice vacation and life in a warm place sounds nice. But I’m betting in a year or so, she gets bored 🙂

    1. I think so too. I would happily live out my days on a private island somewhere and just write and read and enjoy the outdoors. But people who are workaholics are wired differently, I think. Thanks for reading!

  2. She probably needs a much needed rest and after that…she will probably return, unless she gets hooked on the calmer type of life and not having her picture taken all the time.

  3. YES! Great story, Jenn! Of course, I saw what … well, COULD have been a “nod” to a “certain singer” and her husband we all know about. 😉 But, yeah. They made their plans and they rode off into the sunset. Super story!

    1. Thanks! Hmmm…I wonder who that certain singer could be 🙂 I think it’s all a ruse and they are laughing all the way to the bank.
