As the rest of the week passed by, I kept worrying about awkward feelings and how I ruined my chances of dating Kim.
Then, one afternoon, she walked in my classroom for her routine stop and chat.
Gigs were plentiful and for most of the local performers embracing this new fusion it was the first time they were able to make good money playing music they could still consider jazz.
Smooth jazz became so commonplace that its practitioners soon needed to find new approaches to market their sound.
The next hour was spent being raped at knifepoint by the man referred to locally as the “P. Rapist.” Kim realized she was in the throes of becoming victim number six to the serial assailant who had been in the headlines for several months.
