Becca and the Sneaky Violinist: Part 3
Post by Onna Carr
“Would you like some tea or coffee?” Becca asked me as she poured two large mugs of tea and turned to me in question. “Tea please,” I stated as she acquiesced with a nod, filling another mug. “Sugar? Cream?” she queried. “Two lumps and a dollop,” I replied as Ben hopped out of his chair and grabbed one of the first two mugs and a scone out of a tin that sat beside the sugar bowl. Becca walked the tea over to me. As she approached, I noticed she wore a knee-length orange sweater and pair of loose, bell-bottom jeans in dark denim, which was not the current style. “Thank you,” I said as I took the mug.
Becca busied herself with paperwork and directed a couple of workmen who came in needing clarity on set design while Ben scribbled away quietly on his essay. I continued to fill out the form, and when I was halfway through, a small Indian lady came in and went to Ben. She spoke to him quietly, and Ben then hopped out of his chair. He handed his clipboard to Becca, grabbed a small violin out the office’s closet, and walked off hand-in-hand with the violinist.
Within ten minutes, I had finished the tea and the paperwork, and I handed the latter to Becca. “So, you like The Phantom of the Opera?” I questioned, trying to make civil conversation and somewhat atone for my initial rudeness—after all, the woman had brought me tea. “No, I do not like The Phantom Of the Opera,” Becca replied. “Why?” I asked in surprise. “Because it begins with a wrong supposition and ends with the right one after devoting only one line to it. The appearance of a person only shows where they have been or what they have endured. Appearances do not tell who one really is or determine where they are going. The Phantom is a character whose soul is distorted because he never experienced mercy or even grace: because he did not understand or know redemption and love he became lustful, selfish, and then, irredeemable. Truly, everyone in the opera is base and mercenary when it comes down to brass tacks,” Becca stated.
