"Electric, sexy . . . and genuinely poignant, this is a compelling story of the risks and thrills of burgeoning intimacy." - The Bulletin, Starred
I find Dev at the bar, talking to a guy our age who looks familiar in that Type kind of way. When I get to where they re standing, I m introduced as the bass god, Nick, and he s introduced as Hunter from Hunter. Dev thanks me for being equipment bitch, and from the way the conversation doesn t continue from there I know I m interrupting. If it was Thom, my agitation would probably be noticed. But Dev needs you to spell emotions out for him, and right now I m not in the mood. So I just tell him where I left the stuff and pretend I m going off to search for a clear spot on the bar to summon the bartender from. And once I m pretending that s the truth, I figure it might as well be the truth. I still can t see Tris, and there s a small part of me that s wondering if it was even her in the crowd. Maybe it was someone who looked like Tris, which would explain the guy who didn t look like anybody.
Are You Randy? stop playing their instruments one by one, until the lead singer croons a final, a cappella note. I wish for their sake I could say the club falls into silence at this, but in truth the air is one-half conversation. Still, that s better than average, and the band gets a lunge of applause and cheers. I clap, too, and notice that the girl next to me puts two fingers in her mouth to whistle old-fashioned style. The sound is clear and spirited, and makes me think of Little League. The girl is dressed in a flannel shirt, and I can t tell whether that s because she s trying to bring back the only fashion style of the past fifty years that hasn t been brought back or whether it s because the shirt is as damn comfortable as it looks. She has very pale skin and a haircut that reads private school even though she s messed it up to try to hide it. The next band opened for Le Tigre on their last tour, and I figure this girl s here to see them. If I was a different kind of guy, I might try to strike up a friendly conversation, just to be friends. But I feel that if I talk to someone else right now, all I ll be able to do is unload.
Thom and Scot would probably be ready to go if I wanted them to, but I m pretty sure Dev hasn t figured out yet whether he s coming back with us or not, and I d be an asshole to put him on the spot and ask. So I m stuck and I know it, and that s when I look to my right and see Tris and her new guy approaching the beer-spilled bar to order another round of whatever I m not having. It s definitely her, and I m definitely fucked, because the between-band rush is pressing toward me now and if I try to leave, I ll have to push my way out, and if I have to push my way out, she ll see me making an escape and she ll know for sure that I can t take it, and even if that s the goddamn truth I don t want her to have actual proof. She is looking so hot and I am feeling so cold and the guy she s with has his hand on her arm in a way that a gay friend would never, ever think of, and I guess that s my own proof. I am the old model and this is the new model and I could crash out a year s worth of time on my bass and nothing, absolutely nothing, would change.
She sees me. She can t fake surprise at seeing me here, because of course she fucking knew I d be here. So she does a little smile thing and whispers something to the new model and I can tell just from her expression that after they get their now-being-poured drinks they are going to come over and say hello and good show and could she be so stupid and cruel? how are you doing? And I can t stand the thought of it. I see it all unfolding and I know I have to do something anything to stop it.
High school student Nick O'Leary, member of a rock band, meets college-bound Norah Silverberg and asks her to be his girlfriend for five minutes in order to avoid his ex-sweetheart.
