Chapter 22: Opening Night
Takes place:After Luna and the Giant Peach
Starring:Centipede and Ms.Spider
Description:I'm sorry about Luna not being in this.
It's the opening night of the Spider Club and Centipede comes by to check how it's going and manages to catch the main act.
Centipede walked up the bright lighted streets.He passed a few people here and there,some wishing him luck wining the election for New York mayor.He knew he would have what it takes,but he still wanted to spend time with his family then in a office.He turned the corner into Downtown and spotted his destination.The Spider Club stood brillantly lighted with lights and a big "NOW OPEN" sign outside.He walked across the street to the building and got in line to get in.He checked his watch everynow and then.The club would close at 10 or so Ms.Spider told him.
"Come on.Come on.Hurry up,"he thought getting impatient.
Finally,he was allowed entrance.The place was decked out in black carpet and black and white stripes covered the walls.In the back of the club was a stage where dancers dressed in black dresses,french berrets and white gloves danced to jazz music.There was also tables set up all over the place,seating ether two or three people.A man dressed in a black and white tux led him to a table where he sat.
"Would you like anything to drink sir?"the man asked.
"Wha..?OH YES!"Centipede said looking at the menu,"I'll just have some water,"
The man wrote his order on a piece of paper and left Centipede to enjoy the show.The girls left the stage with a bow and with that,the curtain closed.Suddenly,the lights went dim.
"What?What's goin' on?"he thought looking around.
Many men clapped and yelled and Centipede was getting concerned.The man returned with his drink and Centipede asked him his question.
"What's goin' on here?"he asked the man.
"Their perparing for the main act,"the man said before walking off.
"Main act?"Centipede thought,"What's the main act?"
The band started to play a slow jazz song and the curtain raised once more to revelve Ms.Spider.She looked up at the audiance and a spotlight came down on her.
"Love makes me treat you the way that I do.Gee baby ain't I good to you,"she started to sing.
Centipede's jaw dropped as he watched her dance about the stage and sing.He was amzed by her.
"There's nothin' to good for a boy that so true,"she sing,"Gee baby ain't I good to you,"
He felt his heart scip a few beats.It wanted to pop out of his chest as if it were trying to get her attention.
"I bought you a fur coat for Christmas,diamond ring,a cataclac car and everything.Love makes me treat you the way that I do.Gee baby ain't I good to you,"Ms.Spider continued,"Love makes me treat you the way that I do.Gee baby,ain't I good to you.There's nothin' to good for a man that's so true.Gee honey,ain't I good to you,"
Centipede felt his heart leave him.It flew up to her's.His soul was gone too.He never felt this kind of love before.
"I know how to make a good man happy.I treat you right.With lots and love just about every night.Love make me treat you the way that I do.Gee baby,ain't I good to you,"Ms.Spider started dancing to the music intermission.Centipede's eyes moved with her,"I served you candle light dinners and breakfast in bed.Took your car to the services when your engine went dead.Love makes me treat you the way that I do.Gee baby,ain't I good to you?"
Centipede rested his elbows on the table and placed his head in his two top most hands and watched her finish the song.
"They got me paying taxes for what I gave to you.Gee baby,ain't I good to you?"she finished.
The whole club applaided.Centipede was too love struck to do so,but none the less applaided.The curtain dropped and the lights came back on.He paid for his drink and tried to find a way to get back stage to talk to Ms.Spider.He walked to the back of the club and found two guys standing guard by a door with a star on it.He figured that was Ms.Spider's dressing room.He walked up to the door,but was stopped by the two guards.
"Do you have a pass to be back here?"one asked.
"I just want to see Ms.Spider,"Centipede said.
"No one sees her without a pass,"the other said.
"Not even her own family,"Centipede added.
"Oh,your part of her family.Well,that's different then,"one said opening the door.
"Miss,you have a visiter,"the other said into the room.
"Send him in,"Ms.Spider said.
Centipede walked in and saw Ms.Spider at her make-up counter putting on her make-up,maybe getting ready for her next act.He studdered abit,but found the nerve to talk.
"Hey angel fangs,"he said leaning into her view in the mirror.
She gasped,"Centipede,what are you doing here?"
She came up and hugged the tall centipede.Centipede blushed slightly,but hugged back.
"I was in the neighborhood and thought I come by and see how the club's started to come along,"Centipede answered.
"I didn't see you during my act.Did you just get here?"she asked.
"Nope.I saw your act,"Centipede said,"It was amazin',"
Ms.Spider smiled,"Thank you Centipede,"
"I even like the theme of the place.Jazz,"Centipede said doing a jazz pose,"I like it,"
"Came up with it myself,"Ms.Spider said.
"Ms.Spider!Your on in five!"the stage manager yelled.
"Coming!"she yelled,"I must go Centipede.Are you staying for the next act?"
"I need to get on home before Jimmy and the others start to worry about me.I wish I could though.You're one amazin' singer,"Centipede said.
"I know.Well,tell them I'll be home soon,"Ms.Spider said kissing his cheek,"And that's for the nice complament,"
She left the room to go to the stage,leaving Centipede blushing and smiling.He left the club with a warm fuzzing feeling in his heart.And oh how he loved the feeling of love.
