One Wrong Note
Sarah was not what you'd call an average girl. she'd been seven the first time she'd gone down the street to the local bar to get her mom. Her mom had been a big deal in the local music scene, a rocker girl with a taste for dangerous men but that all changed when she got pregnant, at least you'd think it would. Instead Sarah's mom spent a great deal of her time trying to relive her glory days and dragging Sarah along for the ride.
Sarah grew up rough to say the least. She was tough with a smart mouth and a quick fire temper. She was the type of girl that could hang with the guys and no one would bat an eye but she grew up protected too. Those tough guys who thought nothing of taking another woman home for the night and then dumping her off the next day would punch the lights out of any guy who would even dare approach Sarah.
In her teens it was a constant frustration but as she grew up she learned to appreciate it and how to get around those rules as well. Twenty one found her tending bar in one of the roughest places in a collage town known for parties. She could flirt with the best of them but there was no question the if she couldn't take care of herself (and there were very few situations where that was an issue) that she would definitely have help from on of the burly bikers or washed up rockers who had her back.
John was a new to the town Musician trying to make a name for himself. They first met when he played a gig at Sarah's bar. There was no doubt he was attractive, every female in the bar was panting after the guy but it was Sarah that caught his interest. Maybe it was because of her looks, that devil may care attitude, the go fuck yourself glare or her unattainable air. whatever it was he was like a moth to a flame and though she'd never admit it Sarah was hardly immune to john's charms.
But John was everything Sarah had taught herself to avoid. He was the stereo type that had nocked up her mom then fled to the next state and beyond. He was the type of guy who liked a challenged, a conquest and once he was done moved on. He was the type of guy Sarah never messed with because while she could deal with a lot of shit in her life a broken heart wasn't one she wanted to contend with.
