bang a gong

SPR- Bang a gong

"What did you just do?" Crystal looked Lola over as Lola kept her eye on her name tag in her hand, covering it, so NO one would really know that Drew was talking about her on stage.

Lola let out a sigh and thought of fifteen minutes earlier when she cornered that bear of a guy Drew..who finally..after weeks and weeks of annoying Gus (the guy who ran the record store..supposedly) got his way with his little sitcom for Saturday afternoon customers to see. That's when she noticed his friend Dane showed up to support him. Immediately, she thought she wanted one. Kind of like one of those Swedish backpacks she could eye in a magazine but never get in this country. No, the fact remained..she need Dane who she doubted was a distraction.

Yes..if she could have him, well..not exactly. She would show her roommate, Eliza and even Crystal..she was very normal. She needed this. She basically pleaded with Drew who just looked at her as if she was exactly who he thought she was..and annoying little...(a lot of bad words could fit there, lets leave that to the imagination).

"I'll buy you dinner, I'll work your weekends.. please.." She'd never been this way before. She knew she was not a good actress...but big guy Drew had came through for her in the end. And damn, if Dane didn't take over and was much much more funnier than Drew with his Mick Jagger swag ..oh, he was killing it. And she could feel it. It was happening.

She laughed softly now with her friend Crystal who's boytoy showed up, asking what he'd missed.

Then seconds later, Dane showed up. Told her she didn't look a day over fifteen. She wanted to kick him where it hurt, but she put her hand over her mouth like a sweet little geisha girl would, as if he were the funniest thing she'd ever witnessed. He just wanted to know if she was legal.

"I've never..ever..seen you... like this." Crystal looked concerned. Lola shot her a look to keep her mouth shut. Then swallowed her pride and told Dane how witty he truly was.

Soon, Lola looked over her shoulder and spotted Eliza helping some preteen find the latest rap music. Lola sighed and grabbed Dane's belt loop and pulled him in.

His lanky body towered over her. She saw that sly smile of his. Evidently, they were on the right page.
