Summary: Meeting in Kentucky instead of L.A. has its disadvantages. (Or does it?)
“What the hell was that?” Dani asked, after being jolted out of a sound sleep.
“That’s the storm that was promised. The news has been whining about a drought for the past three months. Dani, are you okay?”
Dani had her pillow cradled around her head but could read that last question from Rachel’s lips just fine. “I don’t like storms,” she said as lightning flickered outside the window and she braced herself for another crash of thunder.

“Well, it’s not like you planned this. And it’s not like I’m going to miss a chance to see you. I just wish I wasn’t such a…” Dani’s words died out as she crushed the pillow against her head again to combat another burst of thunder.
Rachel waited until the noise subsided and then moved the pillow away from Dani’s ears. “I have a better idea,” she said. “Slide down,” she commanded.
Dani slid forward on the mattress and Rachel straddled her face, positioning herself with her calves against Dani’s ears. It might not have drowned out all the noise, but Dani found that she didn’t mind all that much when she helped Rachel create some of her own.
