Summary: What happens after Bette's show at the Continental Baths?
How the hell does she do it?
He’s exhausted just playing piano and watching her. The jokes, the dancing, the songs, the costume changes. The boys love it; Bette’s like a goddess to them. To Barry too, come to think of it.
Some nights, she sashays into that closet they have the nerve to call a dressing room, barely covered in her silk kimono and plops herself down in his lap. With those tight pants, it’s hard to hide the reaction, but nothing ever seems to happen. Probably just as well.
Barry knows he could never keep up with her.
