May 13th, 2017
It was the weekend and there was no place I’d rather be than my precious practice space.
My family rented out the community college’s auditorium just for my dream job whenever I’m not at school.
Good thing I graduate from Hollandus United in a few weeks. Now, I have to focus on this big hometown show.
I heard the beats in my earpiece.
The click track was on point and I didn’t need to hear the real timekeeper in the background as he hit his sticks four times.
Then came a surge of synths and a guitar.
I was no longer Kalyani Misra in the moment.
I was Kali M.
Hollandus Landing’s finest musician.
