« on: Jan 14, 03, 01:15:17 pm CST »

It was Spring, a few month's before the local Renaissance Faire. Tony Pirro was looking at his weapons collection and checking out his garb.  He remembered a cute wench he met at last  year's faire. He recalled her faire name was Mad Maggie. She had bright red hair and had curves in all the right places. He met met her at Pub Sing  on the last day. They went for drinks after. Unfortunately he lost the paper with her name and phone number during the following week and she had not called him.
"I wonder ", he thought, 'if she'll be back there this year and I can get to know her better".
He decided to call his buddy Jack Rouge and see if he was planning on going to the faire.
Jack answered on the third ring.

"jack, this is Tony. I was thinking about last year's faire. Are you going this year?
"Hey Tony ,"said Jack, " I was gonna call you. I saw a notice for volunteers for the faire and wondered if we could hang out together at
the faire this year."

"That's a good idea, I was thinking about this red head I met and that might be a good way to get together with her if I'm there more often., said Tony.

Two weeks later the friends met at the Volunteers meeting. Tony looked around to see if Mad Maggie was there. When she did not seem to be present, Jack said maybe she went to the actor's audition the night before.

After they signed up they were sent to a room to speak with one of the Volunteer Assistants in another room. As Tony opened the door, He stopped in amazement. He saw....

He saw Mad Maggie in the flesh!! "Well hello there. Don't I know you?" Maggie asked Tony as he walked in the room.

"We, we,......."Tony stammered, mouth suddenly dry"we met last year"

"I'm sorry I don't remember you. Were you here last year?" She replied.
"We met at the joust last year. You were passing my seat when you suddenly fainted into my arms." Tony said.
"That was you?, she said," I was feeling faint after walking around faire and all I remember was passing out and waking up in the first aid tent."
"It was me who carried you to the tent", Tony said.
"Well, She replied, "

"I must say, it's nice to know that chivalry isn't dead," she said, with a soft laugh.
"So, are you on cast this year?" Tony asked her.
"Yes, I am. In fact, I'm playing the Queen and my fiancÚ is playing the King."
Tony's heart sank when she said that she was spoken for in real life.
"You're engaged, eh? Congratulations."

Tony smiled and  beat a hasty retreat out of the room.
He ran into John and said, " Dude, I just ran into Mad Maggie but she's engaged."
 "That's a bummer. What are you gonna do now?", John replied.

"I gotta think.  I really dug her. Maybe there's still a chance that she'lll change her mind about the guy.  You remember last year Judy had a thing for  the guy that played the Sheriff of Nottingham, but by the end of faire they weren't speaking to each other and I heard he was running around with Maid Marian.
John agreed  that he'd heard the same faire rumors.
"Why don't you continue to work at faire and see what happens. If they break up maybe she will remember you and get back with you. If not there are a lot more woimen at faire. I saw a blond   taking names for gamespeople. She was really hot. I could play some games with her."

Tony listened to his friend and decided maybe John was right but he still glanced back at the closed room door where Mad Maggie was working.


As he looked back at the door, it opened and he saw Mad Maggie. She seemed to be trying to get his attention. ...

Tony thought about the blonde John mentioned........ "she was nice enough I suppose, but nothing compares to a Redhead!"
I have to think of a way to get close to her - and quick. If she's to be married soon- I've got to step up the process of getting to know her or I'll be a day late and a shilling short!

I know, I think I could ......

"Tony, what is going through your mind, bro?" John asked.
"I need to think of a way to get her attention."
"Don't even think of starting rumors about her fiancÚ cheating on her with one of her Ladies in Waiting. Look, let's just go over to where that blonde is and work the games with her."
"I'm too determined to have Mad Maggie as mine. You know how I have a thing for redheads," Tony said.

Looking back at the tryout room, Tony saw that Mad Maggie was still in the doorway and waving at him.

"Excuse me but Mad Maggie seems to be waving at me, let me see what she wants." With that Tony went over to Mad Maggie.

 "Hello again, I saw you waving but I couldn't get away  until now."

Maggie replied, "that's alright. I want to thank you for helping me out that day at faire and didn't we also meet at the pub sing. I seem to remember you had a good baritone voice..  After you stopped in the tryout room, I remembered that The Scarlet Brigands lost a baritone when their former singer moved to Florida. I'm a member of the singing group and wondered if you would like to visit a rehearsal and let the others hear you sing.?

"Sure", said Tony, seizing his chance to be near Maggie.

"Oh, By the way, My name is Rebecca Thornton, although my friends often call me Becka."  The next rehearsal is Thursday at 7:30 on Spring Street. The house number is 47. Look for The Pirat flag in the window." With that she said goodby and went back into the tryout room.

Tony ran back to his friend John and told him the good news.


John said he would give Tony a ride over on thursday to the rehearsall

Thursday seemed like an eternity to Tony. When Thursday finally arrived, all he could do was think about being next to Becka at rehearsal, whether or not her fiance was there or not.

John showed up to bring Tony over. They found the house with no problem. They walked in and were greeted by Becka.

"Hey, you made it. Come on in. Who's your friend?"

"Oh, sorry. John, this is Becka. Becka, this is John."

"Nice to meet you," he said.

"Likewise. Well, let's get this rehearsal going."

Becka introduced Tony to the other members of the group. and told them they had to hear Tony sing.

They all agreed and Tony looked through some of the sheet music they used for the pub sing. He was familiar to the music bui had only sung melody, so he went over to the piano in the corner to practice the tenor part for a few minutes.. By the time he sort of felt comfortable with the part, he saw that a few more members had arrived. Becka motioned for him to  join them as they practiced the song he had been studying.
"Good", said Tony to himself, "at least I won't have to solo".
 Rick Deviens, the group leader and Becka's fiance gave the downbeat and set the tempo.

After an initial hesitation Tony felt the words coming out smoothly and they seemed to blend in with the other voices.
 When the song ended Becka and Rick took a break and called Tony over..

"Tony," Rick said,"...

"Yeah, Rick?" Tony asked.

"I need you to do a favor for me."

"Sure, name it."

"I'm going to be out of town for a week. I've got an audition in Chicago for a show and Becka doesn't know about it. Can you keep her busy for the week?"

Tony looked at Rick with a surprised look, but knew Rick was serious.

Rick looked over at Becka who was getting herself an iced tea.
 "I didn't want to tell her about the audition in case the deal fell through..
 If I'm successful at the audition it could lead to a long term gig in Chicago and provide a basic income for Becka and me."
 
"I understand", said Tony, "but shouldn't you tell her? She might want in on the decision.."

"Nah. She usually goes along with my decisions and since this one has such great possibilities I'm sure she would go along with it."

"I, don't know but hey you know her better than me. So break a leg at the audition!"

"Oh by the way your're in the group. Since we rehearse twice a week, this'll let you look after Becka for me with such a good excuse." added Rick.

Later after practice was over, Tony found John  talking to one of the altos, Linda Graham.

John introduced Tony to Linda and they hung out together.until it was time to leave. Tony found out Linda was a good friend of Becka.

When Tony mentioned Becka's name ... Linda said.

"You Know, Becka is ...

"Engaged to Rick? Yeah, I knew that."

"No, there's more to it," Linda said.

"What else is there," Tony asked.

"Becka is having an affair and she doesn't think that Rick doesn't know about it. But he's noticed a difference in her."

"What? Is that why he asked me to 'look after' her while he was in Chicago?"

"Yes. There isn't an audition. He's just using that as an excuse to get away to get his head cleared on this."

Linda walked away to speak to one of the other guys.

Jack said " You believe her? I don't know. There's something I'm feeling about Linda and it's not a good feeling."

"Are you saying maybe Linda has a reason to start a rumor about Becka?"
replied Tony.

"I don't know but Linda seems pretty familiar with all the guys here and maybe she has a problem with Linda or her fiance."

"Well I'll think about it before before I make any moves on Becka and see if I can find out anything more about her boyfriend. And  especially
Please see if you can find out more about Linda.

Jack agreed to ask around to help his friend Tony.

Two days later Jack called Tony.

"At the end of the rehearsal I talked to Bob. He's been in the group and at
faire for about six years. He knew Becka before she got engaged and he knew her fiance. More to the point he also knew Linda. Boy did he know Linda. Well, he said ......

"He said that Linda and Becka used to have a relationship, but then Becka wanted out of it because she had met Rick. He also said that Linda is desperate for any kind of attention and will stop at nothing to get Becka back."

"Damn, Jack. I'm not listening to anything else Linda tells me in regards to Becka. But, what about Rick's trip to Chicago?"

"Oh, that's legit, Tony. He is going for an audition. And if he gets the gig, then he's taking Becka with him."

"So, what does that leave me with?"

Tony continued, "There's another rehearsal on Friday, I'm going."


John said, "Maybe you can see how it stands better then. And Rick comes back next week. If he doen't get the gig you can talk to him  and see how serious he is about Becka. Ya never now he could have met someone at his audition too."

"Yeah, that's true. I'm gonna head out and get dinner. I'll catch you later."

"Okay man. I'll call ya tomorrow."

John and Tony ended their phone call and John started thinking of how he could get Becka away from Rick and make her his. There had to be a way, but how?

Tony walked to the local rib joint and ordered his usual: Honey mesquite falling-off-the-plate ribs. While he was waiting who should walk in but
Linda on the arm a tall dark haired guy. He was no one Tony recognized.

"What is going on?, he thought. "I only met this girl at audition and she shows up here?.

Hoping she would not see him he hunkered down and turned away.
It was too late. Trust her to see him. She started to drag her date towards him even though the waiter was trying to seat them at a back coner table.

As she approached Linda called out " Tony,.......
