A long awaited walk along that famous red carpet. A very short story.

Hitting The Carpet.

 

Well, we’ve made it! We are finally walking down that red carpet – the one that is woven from fame and success. So, it’s taken us a while but I always had faith that we’d arrive here eventually.

 

And as we walk along, there are arms stretching out, hands reaching for us. Every so often Nick or I will stop, shake a hand, plant a kiss. We’ll even give signatures, pose for a shot. Guys will raise a hand, give us a wave; girls will be clamouring for something so little as a glance.

 

The Slicks! Mick, that’s me, and my best mate for years and years, Nick. The comedy duo that’s taken the world by storm. We started small enough, just a slot in the High School show. We took all the taunting, the teasing, the name being shortened to The Icks or even The Sicks. We stuck with it all through school then went amateur, an evening here, an evening there.

 

But we are amateurs no more, but pure and utter superstars. The whole world adores us and our unique sense of humor. I look toward Nick and exchange a smile.

 

Oi! Have you two finished laying that carpet?”

 

He had to do it, the Boss. He had to go and break in to my dream.

 

Yep! All done.” Nick shouts back.

 

And there it is, stretching out behind us, the red carpet ready and waiting for those feet deemed to be worthy of walking on it. Not mine! Not Nick’s! But a guy can dream, can’t he!!

unmasked delusions

I actually wouldn't want fame....Or fortune honestly. But I agree, nothing wrong with dreamin.

Truthfully, unmasked, neither would I. I like my peace and quiet and anonymity too much. But Mick and Nick wanted to get somewhere with that comedy act they'd stuck with no matter how much teasing they received! And Mick was so disappointed that his dream was not reality! Thanks for the read and comment.
