For A Favorite Song..by Michael
It was only a few days stop over in Texas for a well needed rest from across country trip. George checked into the motel , unpacked and fell asleepright away from exhaustion. He woke up at eight o'clock that evening feelingrefreshed and decided to go out. The local bar was in walking distance so thatwas a plus for not having to drive back to the motel. A New York boy who lovedcountry music, as this bar supplied it with live entertainment. The waitressserved him at his table with the first beer as they chatted briefly inbetween drinks that night. "I'll be on my break for twenty minutes if youfeel like dancing", she said to George. At that time the band was also ona break, so he dropped a few quarters in the jukebox. He approached Jessicawhile she sat at her own table and asked for this dance. It was as low one anda song that they both really liked. Not many words were spoken as each justenjoyed the moments of holding one another. George waved goodbye toJessica as he left the bar and walked back to the motel. His stay was up and itwas time to leave for the rest of his cross country trip. The parking lotwas  quiet as he got into his car. A young lady was at the exit with asuitcase sitting beside her feet. The tears in her eyes were a plea forsomething he never expected. George stopped the car and got out as he put hersuitcase in the trunk. Jessica leaned her head on his shoulder as she took awell deserved nap. The cross country trip was continued but not alone anymore.New York was her new home on the way back as sometimes we make stops going toand coming back from where we need to be. She kissed her husband at the wedding and whenthe band went on a break, they both walked to the jukebox for a favoritesong....
