The applause was fading from his ears, there were hugs and Riley Finn fought back tears. He had thought last term would be his last time on this stage but fate had brought him back for another year. Though he would probably do something for the talent show, this had been the last time he had been someone else on RMI’s stage. Riley had loved working with the smaller cast, he had also loved working with Garen Tennant. Tennant had been here for Riley’s first year, though that year was a talent show so he didn’t really get a chance to work with him then. Riley, smiled ruefully remembering that little bratty child that had opened the show with Puttin’ on the Ritz.

Riley stood back and watched as the people greeted their families and friends on closing night. He had a few people praise his performance and he thought he saw the Witch, Emily Sanders from NYU leave but anyone could be a dark haired woman really. Riley had reapplied to Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, and Columbia University School of the Arts he had both his auditions over Winter break and to say he was nervous was an understatement.

Yet, as he watched as the people he caught the eye of Addi. Addi Leppit, the girl he had admired for as long as he could remember. She had been his Captain and Theater buddy and then a best friend. Riley loved her son, and he admitted spoiled the boy endlessly, just like he did for Jonas’ son. He nodded to show that Addi should join him backstage.

He slipped into the back and sighed as he waited for a special moment with his best friend. In a few short months Riley was leaving RMI for good, and with that Addi would be left at RMI by herself. The seventh year boy knew he’d come see her and Ty a lot but it wouldn’t be the same. When she stepped back Riley couldn’t hold back the tears anymore. “Oh Merlin look at me being a Diva already!” He cried as he pulled her into a hug.

        The pain of being a director was watching kids come and go. They had limited time at RMI, just like she had thought she would have. But now she was at RMI indefinitely, until she either got fired or... more
