into tomorrow

"You sure they'll let you be away that long?" Doyle knew it was settled about this trip with Derrick and the band. Still, Doyle was in shock. He couldn't believe Roger was doing this. A part of him wished it was himself, yet he was happy to see that Roger had enough self-confidence to do this. It would be good for him. Who knew what might be next. He might get a lead in a college play production yet. Roger could do it. Doyle knew it.

"Yeah, I took all those shifts for people who went on trips and stuff." Roger looked as if he might cry as he was packing his suitcase in their room.

"You'll do great. You know, we'll be there for some of the concerts. I'll try to make as many of them as I can." Doyle smiled. It would be their last night together for a while. "I asked Eric if he wanted to come and Ian, he says he wants to see you guys."

"We'll have a regular fan club, won't we?" Roger smirked as he finished packing his duffel bag.

"Yeah, remember to take your vitamins." Doyle could hardly stand it. He didn't know he'd get his emotional. He was excited for him yet full of dread that something awful might happen. Doyle didn't want to think that way. He supposed Elliot knew what he was doing, driving that school bus they were going to stay in.

Roger just smiled at him. Soon they were pressed into each other. Making the most of the time they had before Roger hit the road at four in the morning.

Hope this isn't too soon for Roger to be out of the picture with Doyle.

I just wish that Roger and Doyle were more solid in where they stand before Roger leaves. :/

How long has this story been going on? I feel like I'm missing a lot, but this feels like something I'd enjoy reading. It has a good convo going on.
