New day, new attitude, ep. 003
It had been a full year since Clancy has first laid eyes on Debbie. He knew there and then that he "digged" her as he once confide in his friend Devon.
She’s now sitting across the table from him, sipping on a straw from the glass of Ting; Jamaica grapefruit drink over ice which she was nursing.
Clancy meanwhile was working hard at pretending that he hasn't noticed her dark and mysterious eyes watching him.
Clancy is not of age to be admitted in a bar, he has yet another 10 months to go before he turns 18, furthermore it was not even his idea to be there.
Denthill has just done beaten up Veer Technical high school all but driving them out of the soccer championship.
The fact that 76 has a lot to do with that isn't lost on anyone. He scored 2 goals and an assist to lead the team to a 4-2 win. Not only the 6' 2" 220lb frame he carries around but his features far more closely resembles that of a grown up than an adolescent and besides, who's going to say no to the great 76?
The band was playing sweet and low as it all mix in with the ambiance of chatter and laughter of the place.
The band had stroke up the song “blue moon” which got half of the audience singing along. Clancy slowly faded out as he noticed more than a dozen curious gaze zeroing in on him then slowly the claps and chants; 7, 6. 76…

Clancy hesitated for as long as he could but the unrelenting mob was not letting up so Clancy clumsily walked up front to the sad excuse of a stage area, took the mic which was handed to him by; Bagga-mouth the crooner, M C, band leader all wrapped up in one.
Clancy banged on the mic in a clumsy effort to make sure that it was operational. This got some people off guard especially those sitting directly in front of the speakers boxes.
When Clancy spoke, the noise of chattering went down by several decibels. I don't know what you all are trying to do to me, what am I supposed to do here? "Sinģggg" the response came as one voice.
After what seemed like an eternity, Clancy raised the mic to his mouth and spoke. Okay, I'll sing on one condition; that I get to choose the song. Without waiting for an answer he belched out; if I have the world. . I'd give it to you. PULL UP... the crowd shouted
Promptly the band truck up the backing rhythm to that song and break as Clancy directed by an up/down swiping motion of a clinched fist.
Again the crowd roared and shouted. Clancy eventually got through the 1st verse and upon entering the chorus again, the crowd joined in.
That was the point where he bent down, places the microphone at his feet on the stage and walked off to the clapping and cheers and calls for; more, more, more.
Clancy sat himself back down at the table across from Debbie, picked up the glass, raised it to his mouth and gulped down a huge mouthful of the brew which was now just about a degree or two below room temperature, placing the glass back on the counter a little bit remove from the round puddle of water where the glass had been before, he began to manipulate the round spot into a hippie peace-and-love sign hanging from a long "necklace" the top of which conspicuously points towards the side of the table where Debbie was sitting.
Still drawing his finger through the now thinning water Clancy uttered under his breath; would you even want it though?
