Melvin took Caitlin's text to mean she did want him after all. He did his best not to be a laughing hyena, yet he couldn't help but laugh multiple times when he got her text. If only she knew what she could do for his soul or was that ego?
But he kept his cool. Yes, it was true they did need a drummer even if Tommy the guitarist had not said so. Melvin had a good mind to see what Cori could do on a guitar. That boy learned anything quick. He had a good mind to break off all connections with Tommy who was a bit more of a scene-stealer than people knew. Not that Melvin felt he was a born rocker, but did they really need all those instrumental solos of Tommy's.
Yeah, he wouldn't go there. Maybe he was thankful for Tommy but he didn't always like him, especially with Cori around.
And now this opportunity, it thrilled him to have Caitlin. Why did he find her pout so sexy? Of course, he almost choked on the hot salsa and chip when she pushed it in his mouth. He wanted to be mad, but he couldn't. He drank more tequila instead.
So Caitlin took another shot of tequila. Megan and Cori watched from the sidelines. Neither drank. Both shook their heads no which only made Melvin laugh and then Caitlin laughed. It was really a fun night.
Megan and Cori cleaned up. It was finally settled. Cori would meet with Tommy and practice would begin in the old basement under the pizzeria. Of course, Melvin hadn't been down there since COVID started. It was probably last year. There was a drumset and some music equipment. At least the business of discussing the band was over. It was all good for Melvin, but he wanted to be alone with Caitlin.
Only she was feisty as if she might pull his hair if he got too close. It was hard to say if they were more like dogs or cats. Well, they were animals and maybe they would do what animals do.
Of course, it was an adrenaline rush to finally get to her room. Maybe she was just as troubling as he was. He was certain they were the perfect match.
