She left the plain life because it was too restrictive, but Mr. Rock and Roll All Night And Party Every Day might be too freeing for her.
The house took nearly an hour to get to. Several cars were parked along the long driveway and on the street. He ushered her through the front door without knocking. There was a lot of noise coming from the back. “Who’s going to be at this party?”
“I told you, Alan and his family, their free range nanny, Trent, maybe Rick and his wife. Might be some people from Angie’s show. I don’t know.”
“Alan’s wife is in a show?”
“Yeah, didn’t he tell you?”
“No.” It would be nice to be around show people again. All alone in her room sewing, she’d been missing the camaraderie of the stage.
Gian led her through the kitchen and out the back door. About two dozen people milled around the large lawn. “Wow, bigger party then usual. Come on.” Gian gripped her elbow when she hesitated and pulled her through. “Hey Angie!” He kissed a small woman on the cheek.
“Gian, I didn’t think you were going to make it. And who’s this?”
“Angie, this is Rachel. She’s our wardrobe woman. Rachel, this is Angie, Alan’s wife.”
Angie grinned. “You might know me better as Dr. Lisa Brahms.”
I really do watch too much television, and a large proportion of it is science fiction. Spoiler Alert! In Send Me an Angel, Angie, in addition to getting her dream man, got a dream part on a science fiction television show based loosely on Stargate SG-1’s Dr Janet Frazier. Her character didn’t get a name until now because she didn’t really need one. When I got to this scene I needed one, so I borrowed a name from…wait for it…Star Trek: The Next Generation. Because why wouldn’t I? Dr. Brahms (Leah on ST:TNG) is a warp engine designer and Geordi LaForge’s holodeck love interest, but it was a good name.
