"I thought you said we were all going out together," Lon caught Roger and Olivia going out the front door.
"I say a lot of things," Roger shrugged.
"No, you sounded like this was really important," Lon reminded him. "And if I were you, stop using that line about saying a lot of things." He looked at Olivia and beamed with a smile. "Let me drive so you can have the whole back seat with Roger."
Olivia gave him the keys. Ellie kept her arms crossed. They all went to the car then.
"Where are we going?" Lon looked in the rear-view mirror at Roger. "I don't know exactly where the Underground is?"
Roger just sighed and put his arm around Olivia.
"I know where it is," Ellie said. So she gave him directions to the concert hall that wasn't so far from the house yet toward the older side of town even if they were in the old part of town.
"Guess who I saw?" Ellie looked back at Roger then.
"I could care less." Roger was being angst and wouldn't even look at Ellie instead he played with Olivia's hair, putting a strand behind her ear and whispering something to her which only made her smile.
"I saw Cory." Ellie just said and turned around as if she would not say another word to him.
Olivia looked at Roger then. His smile fainted a little, but he hugged her closer. Lon drove on toward the parked cars. Suddenly he found a parking place going up the street he was going down. The car screeched. He took a quick 360 turn, edging in.
"There." He smiled. "Now it won't be so far to walk back."
