A Quarter for a Song or Two

The car slid into the parking space and Max jumped out before the dust had settled and walked straight into the restaurant. 

"Hi Max," Stella said to him.

"Hi Stella," Max said. "Would you please bring me a beer?"

"Right away," she replied and disappeared.

He walked towards the jukebox, his hand reaching into his pocket and pulling out a quarter. As he approached the machine he stopped for a moment and bowed his head like a priest upon seeing an altar.

Max slipped the quarter into the jukebox and made his selection: A23 and then C12. Though they were just letters and numbers, they still held a special place in his heart, and he was glad that these two songs he wanted to hear were still in this particular machine.
