They were afraid you weren’t coming.
You had been delayed it seemed.
The audience was on the edge of their seats murmuring, “It’s too late.”
But then, “Ta-da!” You make your grand entrance. The consummate actress sweeping onto the stage, arriving at precisely the moment when they felt all hope was lost.
You burst forth. A giggle of pink spilling over from a joke the moon had shared just before you took the stage.
Relief washes over, smiles return.
They settle back to enjoy the show.
