Perecles stepped out on stage, happy with the noise in the room. He glanced back, flashing a smile at Keira, before turning his attention to the audience.
"Good evening, Madrid!" he called, spreading his arms out in welcome. "Thanks for coming, whether you're from here, or came from away just to see me! Especially if you came from across an ocean!" He didn't know exactly where in the audience Lucia and her friends were, but the last part was specifically directed at them. He then turned around to face away from the audience. He drew in a deep breath, then spun around, launching immediately into his hit song, Don't Go Spelling My Heart.
