    Summary

    Gina Porter knows she can be prideful. She is well aware of her tendencies to be stubborn and iron-willed and resolute (a trait her Mom likes to say she got from her); pushing her muscles dancing until she got the move just right, no matter the toll it takes, all-nighters studying scripts and flashcards until the ink and highlighters stain her fingers to ensure optimal grades in her everyday classes and a meticulous performance during rehearsals. She puts in effort every day to be good, to be the best, she does it all on her own, and is, rightfully so, proud of herself. She starts to believe that she doesn’t need anyone else, that she’s perfectly fine on her own. Her Mom is busy with work to provide for them, to keep her dancing, keep her happy, so she says nothing about the crumbling loneliness, puts on her best face and reminds herself that she is proud and strong and doesn’t need anyone’s help.

    She also knows that it is that line of thinking that has led her here, by herself in Ashlyn’s home, a pulsing ache behind her eyes and a painful scratchiness to her throat.

    or, Gina is sick and in denial, E.J. takes care of her, and more than one person comes to a realization.

    Summary

    They’re not lovers, but they can mimic it well enough. The band starts up again and Benny places his hands on her waistline, his grasp light, while her arms twist around his shoulders. Internally, Benny laughs at the irony, at the many other times they’ve been in a similar position. But now is not the time or place for that, memories of intertwined bodies and breathy moans and clutching hands meant to stay in the past, something he only allows himself to take out at night when he’s alone, something he really should forget.
