When his eyes adjust, his gaze is drawn to a man sitting at one of the larger tables in front of the stage. Juuse’s breath catches in his chest. Even from all the way across the room, he was drawn to him, unable to take his eyes off of him. As if he can hear Juuse’s thoughts, the man glances towards the stage and their eyes meet. Juuse yelps and quickly draws back behind the curtains fast. Juuse’s stomach twisted nervously as doubts crept into his head; What if he fell? What if everyone laughed at him or, even worse, booed him.
A warm hand clasps his shoulder, pulling him from his negative thoughts. Calle gives him a kind smile and nods towards the stage. “Knock them dead, babe.”
Juuse takes a deep breath, closing his eyes for just a moment just as the spotlight hit the curtain. The light filtering through onto his face. Just as the music started to play, he released his breath and then stepped out from behind the curtains.
Tonight is his night to shine. As he’s stepping around the curtain, he vows to give the gorgeous man in the audience a show he’d never forget.
