Rosetti's good fortune.

It took me a while to get motivated for this story, but I am happy I waited. I guess it is evident that I have watched to much Masterchef lately ;-) Enjoy!
********************************************************************

So, will it be a tough job? Rosetti asked cautiously. "No not at all, I will have it done in no time. But I suggest you get the window built in first," Eric replied. "There will be no window, I want the music room to be soundproof, and I've found that windows distracts my proteges." Rosetti explained.

Rosetti left Eric in peace to continue his work. After a few hours he returned and was stunned by the transformation the dreary, impersonal room had undergone. It was clear that no job was to big or too small or even to simple for Eric.

A few days later, most of the instruments were unpacked, and Rosetti was meticulously cleaning each of them. He was, however feeling depressed and though he was surrounded by his beloved instruments he could feel the onset of a very dark mood. He has been advertising his services for more than three months now, and not even one person has responded to it. He is considering advertising in Blueberry Hill and Mountainside too, their savings is dwindling fast.

Just as he was about to start polishing the violin, he heard a knock on the door. In the door stood the prettiest little rabbit girl, accompanied by, obviously, her little sister, as she was just as pretty. "Yes?" Rosetti asked "how can I help?" The little girl was obviously very shy, and after taking some time to construe her sentence, she began "I'm sorry, sir, but are you the music teacher?" Rosetti smiled "Yes, I am, but tell me who are you?"

The girl blushed scarlet red, then answered "I am Charlotte and this is my little sister Olivia. "I am not little anymore" the little one replied furiously. "No you are not," Rosetti said looking at Olivia, "but tell me, how can I help you?"

"I saw the advertisement about the music teacher, but Mommy is so busy that she doesn't have time to inquire about it, so I decided to come myself. I took lessons while we lived in Grinpa, and I have to start my level 6 this year." Rosetti was surprised, as the next moment the shy little girl took her place in front of the piano and began to play. What surprised him even more was the sweet sound that she conjured. He was transfixed.

"Charlotte! Olivia!" There you are!" The girls playing was interrupted by a very distressed looking Rabbit woman. "I've searched all over for you!"

"Oh hi Mommy, look Charlotte is playing beautiful." Little Olivia excitedly greeted her mother. "I'm so sorry, Sir! I hope they are not bothering you!" the rabbit woman apoligised. "Oh no, not at all, your daughter is very talented." Rosetti calmly replied.

"I guess I should now apologise for my own behaviour, just barging in here, I am Marion Brighteyes, the mother of Charlotte an Olivia. I am terribly sorry for my behaviour." "Don't apologise Marion, your daughter has brighten my day, she said she is looking for a music teacher?" Rosetti inquired. "Yes, she is! I feel so bad, I should have done this the day we arrived in Sugarbush, but it has been so chaotic, with the move and everything, but if you are willing to take her, on such short notice, I will be so happy."

So it was decided that Charlotte will have her first lesson the next day after school. Rosetti was elated, finally he had a student and it seems that she is quite bright.

Outside the music school, Marion and her daughters bumped into Suzette and Gwendolyn Simpkins. Marion and Suzette has met at chef school, and has been best friends ever since. Even after their paths splits, the kept in touch, and about six months ago they met up again and began planning their move to Sugarbush Valley together.

"Hey Suze! Are you on your way home?" Marion was glad to see her friend. "Yes, I just quickly want to pick up Glynn, then we can head home." Suzette answered. "This way isn't it?" Marion directed them.

In the meantime Rosetti, felt elated! He finally had a student. He quickly buffed up the final instrument. He wanted to get his piano books out, to start preparing a lesson for Charlotte. He was, however, interrupted by his friend Innes Bercher.

"Innes! What brings you here?" Rosetti was glad to see his friend. "Innes, I heard a little bird whispering that your music room was completed, so I wanted to come and see for myself." Rosetti showed Innes around, and also excitedly told him about his first student. Innes immediately decided that this calls for a celebration at the Seaside Restaurant.

As the sun was setting over Sugarbush Valley, the Bercher and Keats families made their way to the Restaurant. 

At the door they were welcomed by the friendly hostess, Kaitlin Decker, and as everyone filed in, Rosetti took a moment to admire the view and to let his good fortune sink in.

It was quite busy in the Restaurant already. Frasier and Teri was there, with Teri's parents, and Brooklyn was cooking up a storm behind the grill. Bronté and Margaux took their places while the men went out on the boardwalk.

The friends discussed the past months of their lives while enjoying some wine and paella as a starter.

The food was delicious and packed with flavour, Margaux leaned over to inspect the prawns that Teri ordered, her stomach growled when the delicious smell drifted towards her.

Soon the Rabbit family left, and the friends had the whole Restaurant to themselves. 

They had a wonderful time! Laughing, eating, drinking and reminiscing over their student days, when life was carefree.

Too soon their main course arrived, and they ate in silence, realising how hungry they was. The lobster was perfectly cooked and Margaux enjoyed the sweet savoury taste of her beautifully grilled prawns.

After a delightfully tasty meal, it was unfortunately time to head home. They thanked Brooklyn and Kaitlin for the excellent food and service, promising that they will be back soon.

As they walked home Rosetti made a little speech, "Innes, Margaux, I would just like to thank you for luring us to this wonderful little village. We are glad we made the move, and with friends like you here, I know life will be good. Thank you!"
