An Invisible String of Hearts They could hear the music from a block away. It was a Beach Boys song, the one about its being nice to be older. Their dad loved the Beach Boys. So did Zinnie. As they w...alked across the lawn, past the hydrangea bushes and the climbing roses, Zinnie broke into a skip. Aunt Sunny sang along to music, “Do do do do dee da.” The casino was twinkling in the dusk. Fairy lights decorated the porch, and when they walked inside, paper lanterns hung from the rafters like brightly colored moons.
Tony spotted them from the stage, smiled, and leaned into his microphone as he sang the familiar lyrics. He and his band were wearing matching T-shirts that said TONY & THE CONTRACTORS. Kids were dancing in a circle in the middle of the floor. Adults chatted around the edges of the room, drifting in and out from the big porch with plastic cups and easy smiles. Little kids zoomed across the dance floor barefoot. Lily took off her shoes and joined them. Aunt Sunny placed her brownies with the other snacks on the snack table, and Jean clapped at the sight of her all dressed up.
