It felt like a surreal moment to Olivia that she didn't see coming.
Granted, Roger was very drunk. She thought he was faking at first, but he wasn't. Had he drank because he was nervous? What in the world had got into him to act like such an ass? And then to go on and on as if he owned her.
She'd stuffed Roger in the shower and stuffed just as much Kleenex up Nick's nose hoping it wasn't broken. He swore it wasn't. She woke Lon up to take a look at it. Naturally, Nick would hardly let Lon touch him.
"God, I've never seen him like that," Olivia said to Ellie the next morning. "I don't want to deal with someone like that." She was miserable about Roger.
"I'm just glad you were there." They drank coffee in silence for the most part.
Finally Ellie smiled. "I can't believe you went to the bathroom with Nick."
"Me either, but he was so scared. I don't guess he's ever had a guy come on to him before." Olivia yawned. "I feel so bad for him."
"He'll be OK. He needed a reality check." Ellie nodded. "You know, welcome to college. I guess."
"Yeah, well, I don't know if he'll come out of his room now. He might want to take online classes." Olivia was concerned.
"So what are you going to do about Roger?" Ellie looked at her as if she should think of something harsh.
"I dunno." Olivia would have to think about it. This was something she didn't want to pick up the pieces of ever again. This was not the life she wanted, having to take care of someone drunk every-time she went to a party with him.
