Benny didn't sleep all night. He couldn't reach Ali. It was driving him crazy. They always talked on the phone before he went bed. And she wasn't picking up. Granted it was early in the morning after the late show, but still where was she?
So when she did wake him up around noon on his buzzing cell, he let her have an ear full.
"WHAT HAPPENED!" He wanted to know.
"Nothing happened." Her words were a little dull. He didn't think that sounded very convincing. He sat there on his couch in his messy room wondering if she in some motel room with a stranger.
"Tell me, did you go home with someone?" He asked.
"No." She sounded a bit remorseful, he thought.
"Tell me." He kind of demanded. "Tell me you wouldn't do something...like Casey would do." He hated the thought of her having sex with a fan. Maybe she had fans.
"No, it was nothing like that." She was a bit disgruntled now.
"What is it?" He winced as he got up to look in the kitchen to get something to eat. He needed to be down at the comic book store where he worked.
"I was just hanging out with Cory. He fixed my computer." She told him.
Benny rested easy then. It was only Cory.
