“Nothing, nothing at all. Really.”
She cocked her head on one side, frowned and then;
“That’s bullshit, and I don’t deserve that. Now come on, what’s wrong?”
Daniel sighed. He had really hoped that he had covered effectively enough, that she would not see through him and see the conflict between his happiness and his disappointment.
“You enjoyed the concert, yeah?”
She nodded, her frown turning into mild concern; suddenly she had no idea where this was going.
“Well I did too, so much in fact, but now we have to go back to reality.”
Still confused she motioned for him to continue.
“Here we are, together, seeing a band that means so much to both of us, at a time in that band’s story that is going to be very important, and I am so happy about that. I’m happy about getting to share this with you, and now it’s over and in another hour we’ll be getting off the train and heading back to our respective homes and neither of us will be able to explain to the people waiting for us why this night was so special.”
