never say never
Topher had so much on his mind. Everything was falling a part. Of course, he had good intentions with the band and even with Audrey. Except the two didn't exactly mix.
She was still at his apartment, and it was his job to get her to work. It was a drag because sometimes, this cut in on his time with the band.
"You know, I can't keep doing this." It would start this way. The arguing. Usually, in the car on the way to work. "If you only had your driver's license." But she'd had it revoked due to the DUI's. Then she'd start on how bad public transportation was.
He didn't know how much longer he could take this. Yes, he wanted to help, but she wasn't making it easy, either. She couldn't wake up on time. She never did anything but make a mess at his place. And there were on going monologues that he lost interest in soon.
"You have to go home. You have too." He told her this over and over. There was the tour to think about. Then she'd laugh at him as if that was the funniest thing she'd ever heard. Him in a band, on the road.
Topher glared at Audrey as she was the most ungrateful individual on the planet. He wanted a girl who'd drop everything for him. Be his number one groupie and of course, do whatever he said with no extra baggage.
"I mean it." He told her when she got out of the car at the library. "You have to go. I don't want you to come back."
This was the routine. Usually, she'd call at closing time. He'd listen to her sad voice, as if he'd put up with her one more time. They'd make up. The sex was good, while it lasted and then by morning it started all over again. But not this time. No, he was going be evil this time. Not even pick up her calls. He was going to be with the guys and they would be on their old blue school bus headed for Texas.
