Chapter 30. Back to Business
After New Year’s, I needed to return to L.A., since I had spent way too much time away from the label, and it was suffering to some degree. Personally, I felt that I was getting too old for this business, that it was time for me to retire from the music industry. I didn’t enjoy it like I used to since my heart was with Megan in New York and my soul was with the foundation.
The day I left, Meg cried. She tried to be brave, but she fell apart in my arms. It was the first time I had heard her sob since Thanksgiving, and Meg knew that she was ripping out my heart.
I held and comforted her, knowing that if I dallied any longer that I would be late for my meeting in LA, so I finally left her in Anna’s arms.
“This weekend, fly out to L.A.,” I said to her before I walked out of the foyer.
“I . . . I can’t.”
“Yes, you can. I’ll make the arrangements, and I’ll call you tonight.”
“Okay, I love you.”
“I love you too, take care of yourself. I’ll see you on Friday.”
