It felt good to finally be holding hands with her after their hands had spent so long just brushing against each other. Even if the "holding" was more like "dragging", it still made him feel cared for. Noticed, at the very least. He waited ever so patiently for her to change, certainly not in the position to complain. Really, he still couldn't think of a way to pay her back, and it nagged at him ever so slightly. In fact, he dwelt upon it so much that he didn't even notice how much time had passed until Wendy ran back out to him.

Her outfit was spot-on, as if it had come straight off of a movie set. It also, however, reminded him ever-so-slightly of Ashleigh. Thinking of her now, he wondered if perhaps he ought to have invited her instead seeing as they were sort of in this whole music thing together now. But looking back at Wendy now, he realized he almost just as equally wanted to spend the evening with her.

Ashleigh would understand.

Louis replaced the smile on his face, making himself out to be exuberant. If fate had been different, maybe he would have been an excellent actor. They arrived at the venue a little late, but he led her up to the front with ease, weaving in and out of crowds as he had learned to do from years of living in the city.

The singer emerged in a flash of white, and Jean looked about, trying to drink in the scene. That would be him and Ashleigh one day, wouldn't it? The music started up in the first song, one he had heard quite a few times before. The Rockin' Rollers had been causing quite a stir already. Perhaps that was why he did not listen too closely to it, enough to realize who he was listening to. But then the rest of the band left and there was the girl and the guitarist.

He frowned to himself, feeling as though this was the universe's way of putting him through guilt. And now she even looked like -- no, no that was Ashleigh. It was a look of betrayal that crossed his face next, perhaps not exactly justifiable, but to him, it was. He was supposed to be up there with her, and this was their moment. How long had she been planning this, and what the hell did it mean for their band? They had just signed a deal, damn it!

By the time she made eye contact with him, his expression had begun to harden, his jaw clenching slightly as he looked right back at her. Louis should have gotten over himself, offered an encouraging smile or a thumbs-up, but he couldn't bring himself to do that just now. Instead, his gaze seemed to grow icier.

And why did he feel so betrayed? He hadn't even known her that long, after all. Their relationship was work-related and really nothing more than that...wasn't it? His expression seemed to soften then as he repeated those words to himself, glancing occasionally between Wendy and Ashleigh. Wasn't it?
