#26020 by Melody Quinn Binx
Tonight was the Lagoon's dancers night, which meant Melody was working. Usually Mel loved working, it was fun and she loved the attention she got from dancing, but tonight was different. The young Binx woman had been invited to a big party one of her friends was throwing, and not being able to get her shift covered, she had to work. She wasn't happy at all! But being the professional she is, Mel was able to hide her pissy mood, the entire time she performed she looked like she was happy and enjoying working like she usually did.... Once she got off the stage, however, that was a different story.
Melody went into the back to her dressing room, being a Binx she's lucky to get her own changing room, where the other girls had to share. She freshened herself up, grabbed one of the lacy dressing gowns the dancers had to wear when not on stage, then headed out into the large bar room which was adjoined to the stage area. Michelle had made some adjustments to the club over the years, those who wished to pay a little extra cash to mingle with the dancers after their dances could go into the adjoined bar room.
Mel walked into the large room, music played softly in the background while the customers were all engrossed in their silly little conversations. Thankfully none of the ones who were her 'fans' had spotted her, and so she went straight to the bar. She ordered a strong drink and as she waited for the barman to serve her she spotted a face she was always happy to see.
When Melody's drink was placed in front of her, she picked it up and moved along to the bar until she was standing next to none other than Mark Binx. "Working hard as usual I take it?" she asked, then took a sip of her drink as she waited for his response.
