"Look out, Chris! There's a guy--" Lisa shouted. "Too late."
I glanced up at the television in time to see the character in whatever game Chris was playing get killed. He swore under his breath and it reloaded. The traffic was starting to get really unbearable. We hadn't moved at all in the last fifteen minutes. John and Terri were both in their bunks resting, and Amerana was rooting through the fridge. Lisa and Chris were doing their video-gaming thing, and I was just sort of sitting here staring out the window.
There was a little kid in the car that was beside us, and she kept looking over and making silly faces at me. I was doing it back whenever I noticed, and Lisa kept just seeing me making faces. It probably looked like I was going insane. Whatever. I liked amusing children. I think that if I wasn't in the band and I'd decided to go to college and have some o

The tour was finally beginning. Raf rented a tour bus and it was pretty damn cool. Everybody had a bunk to sleep in and random spaces to keep their junk. There was also a little bedroom in the very back of the bus that traditionally, I guess, the lead singer of the band would sleep in. We told Chris to when we first explored the bus; however, Chris wasn't going to 'live' there. Amerana claimed it after he gave up with it. He slept there the first night we were in here, but the next day he decided that it wasn't going to be good for his back. Now he's got the bunk below mine.

"Dude, are you having, like, boyfriend withdrawal or something? Cheer up." Lisa laughed. "Come on, you know he doesn't like amusement parks, it's not like we're going somewhere he loves without him."
"I am not having 'boyfriend withdrawal,' Lisa." I told her. "And I know that."
"See! You're even in denial over it."
I rolled my eyes at her just as Amerana found a parking spot. The lot was super crowded, and there were hardly any spaces open. We were at the very back of it, right near a grove of tall trees. That didn't matter, and it was to be expected that an amusement park would be crowded. But I could guarantee that the car would be covered in sap and pollen by the time we left. Amerana wouldn't be happy about that... but she'd have to live with it.
Lisa got her backpack out of the trunk. I wondered what all the stuff she'd shoved in
