Where to Find Kathy Petrakis:

Jay looked at her, impressed. “That was great!” He put it to his music and it fit perfectly. “Sing it with me?”
Elena gulped but couldn’t refuse. They sang together, though Elena did so very quietly. She had been so engrossed in the song that she had totally forgotten their earlier meeting.
“You know half of singing is confidence and the other half is emotion,” Jay said, briefly touching her hand.” You have the heart, you just need some confidence.” Elena felt the color rising to her cheeks and looked away.
“Yeah, easy for you to say.”
“How about this?” he asked and played some more of the song while Elena helped to finish the lyrics. “This is really helpful. Can you help me with another song?”
“Sure,” Elena said. She would cross the Sahara Desert for him.
They continued collaborating until Elena finally noticed it was dark outside.
“What time is it?”
“Nine. Why?”
“Holy crap! I was supposed to be home at seven! My mom is going to kill me!” She checked her phone. Six missed calls.
“Do you want a lift home?” Jay asked. “It’s my fault you’re late.”
Elena thought about her neighborhood and the apartment block. She knew she shouldn’t be travelling alone on the subway at this time of night, but it was better than Jay seeing where she lived. “No, that’s okay.”
