Introduction

Image
Legend says that if you head out to the desert on a hot day, when the sun sits at the top of the sky and the winds are still...
You'll come to a crossroad you wont find on any map, there in the haze you'll find Ol' Scratch sittin' on an old guitar case pickin his strings...
Strike a deal with Ol' Scratch and what you desire most will be yours, and he'll take your soul in return...



You and your friends, an aspiring Blues band with little luck, all of you are fresh out of school and have little interest in a real job, preferring the route of a performer instead. Show after pitiful show with out any sort of break is starting to take it's toll on your pockets, just before you all decide to give it all up you go for one last shot, Las Vegas. If your band cant make it in Las Vegas then theres little chance you'll make it anywhere, but just how far will you go for your fame?


'Tis a mighty sad tale what happened to them kids, if im to re-tell it, I hope you dont mind if i start from the beginnin'. They started out in Nashville Tennesse, a group of teens fresh outta school with no jobs, no money, and big ambitions. They played show after show but thier music got no recognition down in Tennesse, not like they was wantin' anyways, but they continued on. Eventually they scrounged up enough coin and decided to try thier luck here in Vegas, but when they got here it was the same deal, small shows and no one to willing sign a record deal. A week went went by and no one heard from the kids, I had thought they had givin' up and headed home, until one day, out of no where they came back with a sound that you'd think came straight from an angels lips. They brought the blues back when it had almost died out completely, signed a record deal and made to the radio, then on to television not long after. They lived like stars for a while, everyone knew thier names, but what happened after that...

"Don't know if it is or not",Veronica snorted,taking a ciggarette and lighting it.She took out her mostly empty pack and dumped half of Norm's pack into it."Thanks",she muttered,handing his pack back to him."I swear I'm going to kill those girls if they don't move the helll away",she said loudly,making sure that the group next to her heard.That didn't scare them one bit,only further increasin their desire to move closer.Veronica faintly heard one whisper,"He's so dangerous." She pinched the bridge of her nose and groaned in annoyance,realizing that they thought she was a guy."I'm a girl dumbass's!",she yelled,the group looked confused but didn't move away.Her temple throbbed slightly and she tried to ignore them as best she could,turning her attentions back to Norm."You hungry? I think I have enough money to get you something cheap." She was hungry as well but her friend was of more importance to her than her stomach."Because if you pass out from hunger during our gig your going to have to eat your meals through a straw after I'm done with you.",she said quickly,not wanting him to know that she cared

"You are gonna give yourself an aneurysm one of these days, being angry ALL the time is bad for your brain ya' know." He said with a laugh as Veronica finished yelling at the school girls. He took another deep drag of his cigarette before stomping it out on the floor and returning his pack to his pocket.
"You hungry? I think I have enough money to get you something cheap." As Veronica asked him he couldn't help but raise an eyebrow, questioning her sudden generosity, but he wasn't about to take this kindness for granted and decided to agree instead of ask.
"Sounds good to me, but I've been craving steak all day, so how about you let me pay for you this once." Norm said with a smile in response to her well intended threat.
As he stood he removed his coat and tossed it over his shoulder, the mall was warm compared to the temperature outside and he was starting to regret not leaving it in the car. Once he had situated himself he turned back to Veronica. "C'mon im starving."

Veronica was about to protest and deny his offer but a loud growl from her stomach interrupted her."Fine",she mumbled,considering that the only nourishment she really had the past day and a half were cigarette's(she consider them a food group sometimes), gummy bears and Pepsi,she was borderline starving."But I'm going to pay you back as soon as I can,I don't like to owe people",she said as she stomped off towards steak house that resided in the mall food court.She ordered a small brisket and mashed potatos before sitting down in a small table near the back,waiting impatiently for Norm to order.She stamped out her ciggarette then took out another one,lighting up and taking a deep drag.She had been smoking quite a bit in the last few days,mainly to calm her jitters about the gig and to keep from killing her bandmates over every little thing,Wyatt bieng the exception of course.

Kaiden raised his eyebrow at Charlotte and nodded his head, "Yeah let's go inside and grab something to eat. Hopefully we will run into everyone else at the food court. It seemed like everyone was pretty hungry."
Slowly Kaiden sunk his hands into his pants pockets and casually walked towards the entrance of the building. His fingers twiddled around in his pockets aching to touch the smooth surface of some piano keys soon. He was going to eat lightning fast so that he could locate a place to play the piano.

"Ha, I'll let you know when you owe me anything, how about you let someone do something nice for you just this once?" Norm argued. As the two reached the steak house they headed straight for the food, Veronica ordered first, getting a brisket and potatoes, Norm ordered an angus steak well done with a stuffed baked potatoe. Norm ended up paying $19 and some change for the two meals but it was of little concern to him, and he wasn't about to let Veronica pay him back either so he avoided telling her.
"Someone is eventually gonna say something about you smoking all through the mall, you should atleast wait untill we find the others before we get ourselves kicked out." His steak was warm and juicy and he could barely wait to dig into it, he sat down across from Veronica, and the first thing he went for was the steak sauce in the middle of the table, pouring it all over his steak and potatoes. As he was eating he silently pondered where he might find Wyatt, Charlotte, and Kaiden, he knew he needed to find them but didn't feel like chasing them down so instead he decided to have the three come to him. Once he had finished with the steak, he wiped his mouth clean and removed his phone and harmonica from his pocket, he sent a text to Kaiden that read 'Come find me.' Once the message was sent he looked over to Veronica with a raised brow. "You think the others can hear me from here?" Placing the harmonica to his lips, he began with a low, soulful, bluesy stomp, and slowly worked his way up to a churning solo that sounded almost as if a old train were singing to the food court, which quickly gained the attention of everyone in the vicinity. He went on for a good five minutes, his instrument humming, and moaning as if the harmonica itself were crying. Norman had missed the sad sound of his old harmonica, it was as much a part of him as his arms or his legs. Norman had closed his eyes somewhere in the middle of his song, without realizing it, he was enchanted by his own tune.
Ending on an inhumanly long note, he took a moment to gather himself before looking back at Veronica with a proud grin. "Not bad right?"

#, as written by JoeyATX
After walking out of the last store in this mall that would have any CDs, Wyatt was completely disappointed. He hadn't found anything of any worth to add to his collection and he was now growing irritated. He knew what that meant immediately, "time to go grab food," he told himself aloud. Walking towards the food court he smelled the distinctive smell of cigarettes, which he automatically knew would lead him to Veronica, as this was a smoke free environment and she had already made it clear that she didn't give a damn about that. He found Norm and Veronica at the steak house and called to them, "Let me grab something and I'll go over and sit with you guys." He got there, ordered the places burger combo with large coke, paid and then sat down with his friends, next to Norm as he felt that him and Veronica weren't on good enough terms to sit next to each other just yet.

Veronica was staring into space,her ciggarete threatning to fall from her lips and into her food."Nice,very nice indeed",she muttered as she broke out of her dream like state.She took out two more cigarettes and lit them,the smoke trailing out and weaving it's way through the mall,further proving that she didn't give a damn about getting kicked out."But yelling would have been much simpler",she muttered. Veronica pulled the cigarettes from her mouth and dug into her food,placing them back into her mouth once she finished eating.Firey eyes glared at Wyatt as soon as he sat down and the smoke seemed to have taken the shape of a dagger aiming straight at his head,how she accomplished that no one will ever know."Hello Wyatt",she said with a grimace, a small hiss came from inside of her shirt at the mention of the younger man's name.She had slipped Penelope inside of her bra before she left the car wanting the snake to be with her at all times,thinking that Wyatt might try to harm her beloved pet.
