Episode 157: Sooner Or LaterLila entered the bedroom sometime after one a.m. quiet as a mouse who wears bangle bracelets. She dropped her backstage pass onto the bedside table, slithered out of her skirt and just as she pulled her shirt up over her head and was left standing in her black underwear she felt a pair of eyes on her. "Sorry I woke you up,"
By now Bowie had sat up in bed his back resting against the headboard as Lila rummaged through her drawers for a nightgown. "Did you have a good time?"
"Uh-huh, they’ll never be the best act in the world- do you mind if I borrow this?" she asked holding up his old Nirvana t-shirt.
"Go ahead," he said after she’d already slipped it over her head. He reached over the table as she sat down on the bed beside him and began moisturizing her legs. He looked at the laminated pass, turned it over several times in his hands.
She put both legs under the covers beside his and took the backstage pass out of his hands and placed it next to the lamp. She put her head down on the pillow and looked over at him, stewing. She reached over and touched his arm. "Do you remember the first time I wore this shirt? We couldn’t keep our hands off-"
Bowie turned, facing her. "Did you tell him? That’s why you went, right?"
Lila nestled her head into the crook of his neck. "I didn’t really talk to him, everything’s the same, everything."
