Keith was on the road, just working on his new song, when he came across a man. Now, this guy was a well-dressed looking guy, suit, tie, fancy shoes, the whole deal, and he had his car right next to him, one of the tires having a big tear in the side, and Keith was never one to pass up an opportunity, so he stopped to help the guy out, gave a line about them all being 'children of the road', and began to play to get someones attention while the guy stood there. Now, Keith was always a musical soul, people always said his performances could move them to tears and that sort of thing, but some guy just stops, right there, and looks all confused before getting out of their car. Claimed they heard something calling them to stop, and just couldn't resist. This, this was new, Keith could feel it, a new level of power, held within the keys of his Keytar, and all he had to do was play to set it free. No longer would Keith spend days in the boiling sun, trudging from town to town, city to city, spending all his money on food and water while trying to scrape together enough to get his first big deal, now, he had opportunity. After getting the rich guys tire replaced, Keith gave a new command through his Keytar - 'give me a lift, man'. Soon, air conditioning flowed through his hair as the keys on his keytar sounded out. Yes, this would do nicely.
Conner let me stay with him, after grabbing a couple statues to make into a club. He seemed to think we worked good together, and I'm not inclined to disagree with a man who makes buildings cry. Ended up taking me to this real nice mansion owned by some guy he knows called Jules, let me sleep by the gates until he came back, and then I got offered a job, entertainment for the guy at a party he's holding soon. Naturally, i took the job, and boy is it looking to be worth it. had plenty of time to work on 'The Viper' too, looking like it's gonna be ready for full release soon, and I even got started on my new piece - 'Falling Angels'. Seeing Conner in action really gave me some good inspiration, though I should probably diversify from all the snake dudes I hang out with, musics starting to feel a bit chained, y'know? Anyway, found out I can still do that barrier thing, just need to play my Keytar and a dome of sound pops up, the music really flows in their and shields me. Great acoustics, too, perfect for if I want a private Jam Session, though I should probably stick to Jules's Ballroom. kept the seal skin, too, thing is really cozy, not even the fancy sheets here can match up to it. Makes me wonder who left it in their tub, but eh, all's fair, not like I'm the one in trouble.
It was a wild night once Keith got back to the party, Jules handed him some kind of ring which caused his wounds to heal faster, leaving him whole in a matter of hours, while Mary Alice used some kind of crazy nanite tech to cause his arm to just sort of... reattach. After that was done, he finally got to meet all the rest of the residents and even participate in a few of the games. Overall, a pretty fun time, even when the 'eating contest' sort of just became an impromptu feast, most everyone showing up to participate or judge, as far as Keith could tell. Jules seemed to have some kind of troubled past or something, he looked pretty torn up inside when Keith assumed that the Grace girl was his, but hey, wasn't Keith's place to pry. Keith's mangled arm took about a week to fix, but by the end of it he could play again like nothing had happened, and really, that was what counted the most in Keith's eyes. He'd have to get Mary Alice a thank you of some kind, maybe a cameo on a future song? Whatever it was, it'd need to be big, to convey how much it meant to him. Jules said he could stay so long as he helped out, and really, that was probably all Keith needed to hear. After so long wandering, he finally had a place from which to go on his dream job and make music.
Me, Bu and Mako got back to Jules's mansion and, whaddya know, apparently we've been gone ages. Something weird was going on with that gig, man, wildest ride I've ever been on. Anyway, a few days later, Jules gathers eveybody, and I mean everybody in the mansion all together, and tells us there's gonna be a few changes to how we do things. Namely, that the mansion is gonna get transported to a parallel universe. Now man am I surprised by this, but hey, not like it matters where I go long as I got a roof over my head and an instrument in my hands, so I figure I can roll with this. Still staying at Jules's place now, but the crazy thing is, in this dimension we ended up in people apparently know all about the Supernatural. Sure hope I can find some rocking inspiration for my music, cause there's some crazy stuff out here. Other news, I'm still getting better at doing my thing, almost done with my new single, too, gonna be a chart topper, I can feel it in my Keytar. Started getting allowed into parties, too, so I figure people must be starting to recognise me, at the rate I'm going the whole country's gonna know the name Keith Nightly by the end o' the year! Sure hope I can pay Jules back for all he's done for me, real kind of him to let me stay at his place, and I sure am glad Conner invited me.
