“So, Kit’s hosting an open mic amateur night at The Planet tomorrow” Shane strained as she struggled with the heavy weight in her hands, shifting her legs to maneuver herself into a better position and huffed out a breath. “Do you guys .. wanna .. c-come?”
Dana grimaced as she lifted her side of Alice’s couch to pass over an obstacle in her way, her eyes locking with Shane’s impatient gaze. She tried to remember what it was that she had rehearsed with the brunette, the look she received from Shane urging her to throw out an answer.
“Can’t sorry” Dana huffed as she began to turn her side of the couch so that it would fit through the doorway, her arms shaking under its weight. “Date night with Lara”
Shane nudged Bette who had been positioned next to her, urging the brunette to answer next.
Bette immediately jumped into action, her words just as strained as everyone else’s. “I can’t either. I have some work to take care of before I head back home”
“That’s a shame” Shane offered sincerely albeit a little too pleased with the fact as she angled her head to look at Alice. “How about you, Al?”
“Huh?” The distracted blonde stood off to the side and was focused on the icee in her hands, scraping her wooden spoon across the frozen top. “I think I can make that”
Bette kicked out a leg, catching Alice’s shin as they staggered by with the couch.
“Ow!” She yelled out with exaggeration, glaring at Bette as she rubbed her sore leg. She earned a round of dirty looks in return from Bette, Dana and Shane. Carmen who had been focused on her side of the couch beside Dana looked up the moment Alice shouted, her eyebrows knitting together in confusion as to what was going on with her friends. “What I was saying was that I think I can make it but I’m just gonna stay home. I’m really tired”
Carmen bit her lip in concentration as she tried to maneuver the couch with Dana, the angle between the doorway and the hall making for a tight fit. She glanced at Alice, the blonde’s words confusing her further. “You’re tired for something that’s happening tomorrow night?”
