I used to be a handler like you, then I turned into a horse.

"Suit yourself."

He let Johannes Brahms play them out, going dead quiet until the party house began retreating into his rear view. Not to be unfriendly or anything, only because when he was behind the wheel, his focus became absolute. Much like all that existed on the wrestling mat was his opponent, only the road ahead was real when he was driving. Distractions were dangerous when you were sending several tonnes of metal shooting down a road at speeds humans weren't evolved to go. Once they were on relatively open road his grip on the steering wheel loosened just a tad, he stopped sitting quite so rigidly in the driver's seat, and a little trace of enjoyment showed in his expression again.

Roderick had been all but dragged to this party and he'd planned to half-ass it until he could slip away unnoticed and go home. Now, though, the fact he'd shown up was far nicer than the prospect of having stayed home all night. Funny how that worked, Nadia showing up just as he'd been thinking about making some excuse and getting out of there. Streetlights illuminated their path as they exited the little residential area and hit the main street, making the headlights of his car a mere formality. He would still have homework, and off-season practises and competitions to prepare for, maybe an MMA fight or two on the horizon, eventually exams and returning calls from college scouts who'd seen the state tournament and some of his performances last year, but tonight he could just enjoy. A boy and a girl going out for shakes and food and maybe more depending on how it went, just some normal fun.

He had a good feeling about it.

Hiya, jerk! Please don't post until edits have been completed, as doing so causes confusion/messes up the queue.
