As I leaned back against the bar, the crowd hushed as she walked out into the light.

Finally, she spoke. “Hi. I’m Linda Ronstadt.”

The crowd stood and applauded. Her smile glowing as she gazed back into the audience. Then, they sat down, leaving only me standing in the back of the room. For only the briefest moment, our eyes caught and held. It was all I needed.

I turned and walked to the door as the saxophone started playing. She began singing “Ooooh, Baby, Baby” as the door closed. I knew it was for me.
