"I can't believe it took someone this long to host a karaoke night!" she said. "This is going to be great!"
"I think so, too," said Miguel. "You want to get us signed up or should I?"
Ami looked at the stage where the host was. Then she shook her head, blinked several times, and looked again at the large scorpion-woman standing behind him. "Whoa. Um...?"
"Oh, that must be Kala," said Violet. "Cupid told me a little about her. She's Valon's husband and a Monster Musume-verse girtablilu. Remember Stephanie from the New Years' party?"
"Vividly," said the other three agents.
"So do all of us want to sing, or just Ami, or what?" asked Chris, desperate to change the subject.
"I'll take a whack at it," said Miguel. "I can't promise anything mind-blowing, but...it should be fun."
Violet nodded. "Count me in, Chris. I've got a handful of eighties songs and total confidence in myself."
Chris gave his partners a thumbs-up. "By the way, no amount of pleading, bribery, bargaining, or brute force is going to convince me to get up onstage. I'll sing along to the crowd songs, but that's it. Are we clear?"
"Very," said Ami.
"Awwww, does somebody have stage fright?" Violet teased.
"Shut up, Violet." Chris stalked off to the front in a huff, while Ami got the others three neighboring seats in the middle of the fourth row.
