Three bands have played. Drew watches each for a few minutes before leaving the basement and following Theresa down the street to sit in front of the town library. Repeat times three. A friend, who would later gossip about one of your biggest secrets to an Internet message board, observes your continuing disappearance and reappearance. Theresa herself disappears during the second library stop but reappears to catch up when Drew is returning to the house the show is taking place at. While she is gone, Drew tries to make small talk with someone selling a fanzine but says something awkward and ridiculous, prompting said person to exit the conversation and head back to the safety of the basement.
Being a good diplomat gets you a spot in the hierarchy. An X on your hand, writing “slut” on your arm, talk about the environment while sucking down another cigarette. That’ll show them! All of these roles need actors. They began walking back to the show for band #5. Someone Drew would later find out was behind some Online mockery of him walked by and smirked. Years later, it is happening again. Theresa took his hand and led him back to the van. She still had a lot to teach him.
