Why do I even have to go? she said.
We have a subscription, he said. So we have two tickets to tonight’s concert and your mother is out of town. So you get to go. Yay!
She looked out the window.
We can get a drink at the hotel bar first, or go get something to eat or something, he said.
Have you ever been to the Konzerthaus already, he asked. It’s pretty awesome. Last time we went, we saw the president of Austria. He sat through the whole concert, too. Didn’t just show up and escape in the intermission or something.
Yeah, remember, that’s where I fell asleep, she said.
Oh, he said. I was going to ask you to keep me awake.
We can lean on each other, he said.
