“HEY! LORD MICHAEL! Was the Paannaaq Mead worth waiting for?!” Revna found the face in the crowd - Devlin.

Michael looked out and spied Devlin. With a grin, he said nonchalantly “Meh… I guess. But now I know you only gave it to me so you’d get to come to this party!” Howls of laughter and applause washed over Devlin and he grinned at Mike; who then nodded at him once as if to say Thanks. Devlin raised a tankard to Mike and then was swallowed up by the crowd.

Mike looked at Revna and said softly “You said Runa plays the pipes… right? Go tell Tara. Have her get Blaire. You shall have your revenge, my lady.” and he grinned and winked at her in the way he knew drove her crazy.

Revna’s eyes widened and she felt that wink all the way down her spine and into her stomach…alright he wanted to play that way. She turned very slowly and found Runa first, then she went and found Tara, and THEN she disappeared while he sang. Gods above she loved that man’s voice. He was singing and winking at her with the entire clan around.

Mike looked out at the crowd and then took the bass off his shoulder and set it down. He looked at Canary and whispered something. Her face split in a wide grin and she shook her head enthusiastically and ran off, coming back with an acoustic guitar. Mike went to the front of the ‘stage’, actually the wide steps at the front of the Manor, and took a seat on the top one. He motioned for the crowd to take a seat. “C’mon… sit. Chief’s orders, dammit.” and the crowd chuckled and everyone took a seat either in a chair, on a crate, or simply flopped down on the ground. Mike began strumming and then Bubba bagn drumming softly. Canaray lifted a fiddle up and began to play, and Mike started to sing…

Headin’ down south to the land of the pines
I’m thumbin’ my way into North Caroline
Starin’ up the road and pray to God I see headlights
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Pickin’ me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I’m a-hopin’ for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight
So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey… mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey… mama rock me
Runnin’ from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now
Oh, north country winters keep a-gettin’ me down
Lost my money playin’ poker, so I had to leave town
But I ain’t a-turnin’ back to livin’ that old life no more
So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey… mama rock me
Yeah, rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey… mama rock me
Walkin’ to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly, had a nice long toke
But he’s a-headin’ west from the Cumberland Gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee
And I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby callin’ my name and I know that she’s the only one
And if I die A MCKENZIE, at least I will die free
So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey… mama rock me
Oh, rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey… mama rock me
So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel (oh, I wanna feel)
Hey… mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey… mama rock me

As he played, the Clan swayed and clapped softly. But when he sang loudly about dying a McKenzie and free… the entire clan leapt to its feet and began screaming at the top of their lungs and cheering.

Revna returned, slipping out the front door behind the band and was screaming with the rest of them. She moved over to Canary and spoke softly and the small woman looked like she’d rocket off the stage. Then she spoke to Ada who passed the message around. But as the music ended, Revna was kneeling behind him, out of his direct vision and whispered, “Tara said to stall she’s got to find pipes the right size for Runa. ‘Cause I know Runa didn’t bring hers. Oh and I know you love country music.” She stood up, nodded to Ada and Kirsten. The sound of a country guitar and drums were heard and then Revna moved down the steps next to Mike, wearing the dress the night she took him to The View. The red one the slipped on like a coat, with the really long split. She grinned wickedly at him and whispered before walking awa, “Bet I can make you come over here without touching you.” She leaned up against the half support wall to the stairs, leg peaking out and winked at him.

“You’re on.” Mike responded with a grin.

I don’t want another heartbreak
I don’t need another turn to cry, no
I don’t want to learn the hard way
Baby, hello, oh, no, goodbye
But you got me like a rocket
Shooting straight across the sky

It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this
It’s centrifugal motion
It’s perpetual bliss
It’s that pivotal moment
It’s, ah, impossible
This kiss, this kiss (unstoppable)
This kiss, this kiss

Cinderella said to Snow White
How does love get so off course, oh
All I wanted was a white knight
With a good heart, soft touch, fast horse
Ride me off into the sunset
Baby, I’m forever yours

It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this
It’s centrifugal motion
It’s perpetual bliss
It’s that pivotal moment
It’s, ah, unthinkable
This kiss, this kiss (unsinkable)
This kiss, this kiss

You can kiss me in the moonlight
On the rooftop under the sky, or
You can kiss me with the windows open
While the rain comes pouring inside
Kiss me in sweet slow motion
Let’s let every thing slide
You got me floating, you got me flying

It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this
It’s centrifugal motion
It’s perpetual bliss
It’s that pivotal moment
It’s, ah, subliminal
This kiss, this kiss (it’s criminal)
This kiss, this kiss

It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me darling, yeah
It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this
It’s centrifugal motion
It’s perpetual bliss
It’s that pivotal moment
It’s, ah, subliminal
This kiss, this kiss (it’s criminal)
This kiss, this kiss

It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me darling, yeah
It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this

Mike listened and grinned like he’d just won the Federation Lottery. When she finished, he stood up and started walking to her… but veered off and picked up his bass. Smiling he said “Tempting…” and he began plucking the bass stings. Canary concentrated for a moment, then her face split into a wide grin and Bubba yelled “HELL YES PUNK ROCK!!!” and the band started playing and Mike began singing.

I’ll be the ticket if you’re my collector
I’ve got the fare if you’re my inspector
I’ll be the luggage, you’ll be the porter
I’ll be the parcel if you’ll be my sorter

Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day and it’s okay

I’ll be the mail, you’ll be the guard
I’ll be the ink on your season ticket card
I’ll be the rubbish, you’ll be the bin
I’ll be the paint on the sign if you’ll be the tin

Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day and it’s okay

Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day and it’s okay
It’s okay
It’s okay
