Lon was glad to be alone with his movie.
"Yes!" He said in excitement under his breath. What the hell was Roger's problem? OK, they'd never be best friends. Honestly, he didn't want to be Roger's best friend. Yet, it would be nice if they could get along. They did share a house together. As it was, all he wanted was some peace and quiet. He felt like taking a nap. He so wanted to call Ellie, but he wouldn't. He'd just chill and wait to celebrate the 4th once she got back, but then he heard Roger yelling into his phone in the kitchen.
Lon turned down the volume. He could only speculate what that was about. Finally, he got up and walked into the kitchen to see Roger pleading with someone over the phone.
"NO! Don't! Don't do anything! I'm coming to get you!"
Lon just nodded. He'd have Roger out of his hair. That would be nice.
He got off the phone then and looked at Lon, "Could you take me to this concert where Olivia is?"
"Can't you drive?" Granted, he'd never seen Roger drive his little black sporty KIA in the garage. It looked brand new.
"I don't like to drive." Roger told him.
"Why do you have a car then?"
"My Mom got it for me," he sighed. "But I don't really drive."
"You don't have your driver's license?"
"No. Yes," he nodded. "But I don't want to do it. It makes me nervous."
"Well, that sucks," Lon didn't know what else to say about it.
"So you need to drive."
"I don't know my way around here?" Lon squinted. He looked down at his sweats. Really, he wasn't dressed for the night. He didn't even have his shoes.
"I'll tell you where to go." Suddenly, they were friends he guessed.
"What's wrong with Olivia?" Lon stared at him hard. If he was going to do this, he wanted to know why.
"She met some guy and now she's afraid."
"Afraid of what?" Lon winced.
"Afraid to be alone with him, I guess." Roger looked worried.
"All right," Lon groaned, going out was the last thing he had on his mind.
