I've been in my room waiting for Star till it feels like the walls are closing in. I need some fresh air.
I leave Star a note, then lock up the room. Maybe I'll get a beer before I come back….
Raina and Nick are lounging by the bar as I come downstairs and Raina waves me over.
"Hey, I understand congratulations are in order," Nick says. "Have a beer on me."
This is Nick?
"Are you feeling all right?"
"Look, we had a bad night, okay? I can get past it if you can. Truce?" And he offers his hand.
I take it. "Truce."
Raina grins. "It's a start. Now, Nick, didn't you say something about a beer?"
He grins, flashing fangs. "What'll you have, bro?"
