Thunderbirds Chapter 28
Jane spent most of the rest of the trip with her headphones on and her laptop out, trying to get some writing done. The book I had read was the first in a series and she had a deadline to meet, tour or not. I left her alone and hung out with the guys, playing video games and being our usual loud, obnoxious selves. Jane didn’t seem to pay us any attention, lost to whatever muse had ahold of her.
When we got to the hotel I quickly hopped out for a smoke while Tony went inside to take care of getting the rooms sorted. The quality of our accommodations on the road was often wildly unpredictable, and this place looked especially worrying but anything beat another day on the bus. It was going to be 5 days after this show before we had another night in a hotel. I wondered how Jane was going to handle it. While we waited she went for a walk around the parking lot to stretch her legs as I huddled with the other nicotine addicts, catching up with Kevin, one of the techs that were traveling with us. He was having problems with his girl back home and I was a good listener so we had ended up talking quite a bit over the course of the tour. I was completely caught up in the conversation so I didn’t realize how much time had passed until Jane came back from one her laps around the lot.
