She had thought about and imagined this moment for years, but she’d never expected to be actually invited backstage when her favorite band was playing.

Millie was a fan of The eagles since she was old enough to appreciate good music. She was never able to attend any of their concerts but owned most of their albums and knew all their songs by heart. So it was a matter of great excitement for her that they had announced their latest concert and luckily it was near to her town.

She could finally see them live! She bought the tickets and on impulse wrote to the manager telling him of her lifelong dream of meeting the artists in person. To her immense delight and surprise, she was called backstage after the concert and got to meet her much-adored idols.

Dreams do come true after all!

  1. An excellent marriage of the two prompts, Sadje. The Eagles are one of my favorite bands and I’ve seen them live in concert four times (although never backstage) and they put on an excellent show. It’s so sad that Glenn Frey is no longer with us.

  2. You are too good at answering prompts. After reading this one two thoughts come to my mind :

    1. When you present, as an artist and, people appreciate you.
    2. When your favourite artist perform and you appreciate.
