If the music didn’t get any better he was going to take that pill Kelsey kept offering him. It wouldn’t be like it was the first time. He adjusted his headphones and sat back in his seat. It was her birthday after all and we were all there to help her celebrate. The fact that Kelsey was the only one who actually enjoyed this type of music and the idea of the rest of us going with her, now seemed a bad choice. For the amount of money, we could have just given her front row tickets and let her choose someone to go with her. Instead, we all sat uncomfortably enduring the so-called music.
Maybe he should take the offered pill after all. He knew from experience it would settle him into a semi sleep state and he could just listen to Bach on his headphones in peace.
