always in transition
"See we can do this." Elliot was sure of it. As it was, it was hard work, but he never felt better about playing in the band with Derrick until now. And he was doing this with Amanda. It was something they were doing together. "You sound great."
"But its just the three of us." Amanda shrugged. Didn't they need a drummer? Kyle wasn't here to help.
"Well, get Roger." Elliot decided.
"Roger?" Amanda winced. That was cutting it short. She looked at him odd.
"He can play."
"Oh." She shrugged. "What about Doyle?"
"Or Doyle." Derrick shrugged. It was his band.
"Or Doyle." Elliot looked at Amanda. 'I don't have a problem with that, I don't." He told her.
"We're waiting til the last minute, you know." She was in a stomp with her microphone stand.
Elliot was calling right now as if it were a 911 emergency.
Naturally, Doyle said he had to work the night they played at their first concert, but Roger didn't. So they were coming over.
"It'll have to be Roger." Elliot nodded.
"God, I hope he doesn't mess this up for us." Amanda shook her head.
Elliot just smiled. She was really thinking of this as us now. He felt so giddy. He wanted to kiss her right now. He couldn't imagine a better summer than spending it with Amanda, on the road.
"But we gotta think about Rosie." Amanda reminded him before they got too far ahead of themselves.
"Yeah." He looked at her as if he understood.
"Well, Kyle has enough to do as it is." She nodded.
"I know." Elliot would have to take care of that too. He supposed. He got out his phone then. Maybe Eric could help.
