“Hey, where’d Leonard go?” Max asked as everyone was hanging out on the couches in the green room. Phyllis looked around the room before snorting and rolling her eyes.
“That man has a bladder like an infant these days.” The older blonde woman dismissed her husband and shook her head. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s in the men’s room for most of the show.”
Bette grimaced and took a sip of her beer. Tina, who was sitting on Bette’s lap quirked an eyebrow with a slight chuckle. “Lovely.” Bette muttered under her breath. “I thought you were going to leave Leonard at home, Phyllis?” She asked her boss, without revealing that his name wasn’t on the guest list.
The older blonde woman rolled her eyes again. “He’s been insufferable since you’ve been on vacation, Bette.”
“All the cool kids say ‘vacay’ now, Phyllis.” Alice said with a wink.
Phyllis giggled softly before she continued. “And he’s just been so clingy and needy. Sometimes, I swear he’s the woman in our relationship.”
Bette grinned when she noticed Shane and Alice exchange knowing looks with one another.
“Well, maybe getting him out tonight will do him some good.” Shane raised her beer bottle towards Phyllis’s cocktail glass. “Hopefully the little lady will get good and liquored up this evening so you can take full advantage when you get home.” Shane’s suggestion earned a round of giggles and snickers from everyone and a roomful of “Cheers to that” echoed in the green room.
“Hey, can we take a look at your setlist for the night?” Esai asked. “I mean, if you guys don’t mind?”
All eyes landed on Bette whose non-chalant demeanor revealed an indifference to the request. “Everyone has a copy, right?” She asked the band, meeting the gaze of every pair of questioning eyes.
Angus fished out a folded piece of paper from his back pocket. He handed it to Esai who was instantly sandwiched by Oscar and Dana peering over his shoulder.
Bette could feel the shift in Tina’s weight as she attempted to stand from her lap. The brunette quickly set her beer on the table and grabbed her girlfriend’s waist with both hands keeping her in place.
“Where do you think you’re going?” She asked in a hushed and sexy voice.
