I hate to see Roderich so defeated, so guilty. He's been through enough of that. I can hear him mutter his surprise when he notices that I've taken my bandaged hands and intertwined my fingers with his. His face once again turns a bright red and he relaxes his grip around mine. We stay like that for a while, hand-in-hand in the middle of the orchestra. I look down at our hands and suddenly another idea comes to mind.
"Hang on!" I say, taking Roderich's left hand, "You can only use your left hand for conducting, but I can use my right hand. We could conduct the songs together, like a duet. A due,"
His eyes widen in realization, "A due... Together?"
Of course he's surprised by the idea. It's something no one has ever tried before, let alone succeeded in doing. It's unheard of, it's unorthodox. Which is why it just might work for us. In honestly, the last time I tried conducting was years ago, and even then I wasn't nearly as good as Roderich. Bu

"Shh! You need to keep quiet!"
"They might hear us!"
"Hehe... (Name)'s never gonna live this down..."
"Make sure you have the flash off,"
What? Where am I? What the heck's going on?
Though my eyes are still closed, I slowly realize that I'm lying down on a hardwood floor rather than on my not-as-rigid mattress. As I try to piece together what happened, the last thing I remember was looking at the music pieces with Roderich. We were discussing wether or not we should change the order of the songs. I said that we should put Prince and Princess as the first song, a nice introduction, but Roderich thought messing with the order of the songs would ruin everything. I guess I fell asleep inside the orchestra room? Jeez, I really am turning into my dad. I try to turn and push myself into a sitting position; that's when I notice a strange tickling on my cheek. I grumble in confusion before I realize it's hair - Roderich's curl,

Although Roderich was a little mad at me for tricking him into paying for the ensemble's lunches, it definitely helped make everyone feel better about the orchestra and practice hours. By now we've reached the half-way mark and it'll be a month until the Valentine's Day concert. With that in mind, everyone seems a lot more eager to dedicate more time to practicing and cooperating with Roderich. On the other hand, Roderich's slowly learning to be more flexible with the orchestra and patient when it comes to teaching them. Sadly we decided not to go with a big finale like I had hoped, but at least this way the orchestra would have more time to polish the other songs. I'm definitely bummed that we can't go with a big film score, but it's a huge weight off my shoulders to know that we won't be playing Romeo and Juliet Overture. We'll just have to come up with the next setlist ahead of time.
You heard me, "the next setlist".
Even I find it hard to belie

If Roderich thinks I'm letting him get away with this, he's got another thing coming. I'm perfectly fine with choose a piece by Mozart to start the concert, and I'll agree to keep The Young Prince and Princess, I think the students could pull it off, but there's no way in hell I'm going to allow him to conduct Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture. Playing that for the Valentines Day concert has the word 'Predictable' written in bold letters, it's been done before.
I shake my head and point to the song in the concert list. Roderich looks less than pleased with my decision.
"I don't care how much you whine," I say, taking a pen and crossing out the song, "Absolutely no Romeo and Juliet. We need to mix things up. Be più nuovo, new, different, creative,"
"Nuovo?" he raises an eyebrow in confusion.
"Nuovo con amore," I explain, "Something refreshing,"
If I'm going to help lead this orchestra, I'm not going to just let it
