Robert lay in bed in the dark hotel bedroom, staring at the television screen but not watching. Jenny had gone to make sure the others had taken the pain pills the E.R. Doctor had prescribed. She came into the room, "Hey sugar-bear." She said as she opened a drawer and hid Jimmys pills under her clothes. She knew he'd get into a habit and take those when he didn't need them. Robert just stayed quiet played with a loose string on the bed sheets. She climbed into bed and on top of him, "Are you okay?" She asked as she ran her fingers through his golden mane. "Yeah." He replied witth a smile. She lowered her head and kissed him, "I think I'm ready." He looked at her as if he were waiting for her to say she was only joking, "Really?" He finaly said.
