Chapter 28

When the show came back from commercial, Blain interviewed us a bit more. Then it was time for my big solo. This time, after the high I’d just experienced with Connor and Aurora, I wasn’t a bit nervous. I was going to own that stage! I was ready! Bring it on, Blain! I could hardly contain myself I was so ready. “We’ve heard some seriously amazing singing this morning, haven’t we?” The audience answered Blain with cheers and whistles. “Now I want you to prepare yourselves. This song was just released by Olympus Records and has hit the ground running. Give it up for Amber Stone as she brings you Man I Love live right here on WKLA!”

The spotlight came up on me. I was sitting on a stool in front of the piano. Ryder softly played the introduction and I let the song flow through me.

When the mellow moon begins to beam
Every night I dream a little dream
And, of course, Prince Charming is the theme
The he for me
Although I realize as well as you
It is seldom that a dream comes true
To me it’s clear
That he’ll appear

Some day he’ll come along
The man I love
And he’ll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I’ll do my best to make him stay

He’ll look at me and smile
I’ll understand
And in a little while
He’ll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won’t say a word

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I’m sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He’ll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I’ll never roam
Who would—would you?
And so all else above
I’m dreaming of the man I love

Some day he’ll come along
The man I love
And he’ll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I’ll do my best to make him stay

And so all else above
I’m dreaming of the man I love

The studio was silent, right before it erupted. There were tears all around, including on the face of my sweet mama. I even thought I saw Uncle shed one or two but he’d never admit it. Brock was beaming like a lighthouse over a dark harbor. There was no denying it. The song had been for him today. It became extra sweet because I was no longer dreaming of my Prince Charming. The man I love was already here.
