His muscles felt tight and underused from the hours spent in their somewhat claustrophobic van, and so a brilliant stinging sensation pinched his legs as he walked from the parking lot to the hotel entrance, his suitcase rumbling against the tarmac as he wheeled it behind him. Gerard splashed his worn-out Doc Martins into a particularly large puddle half-deliberately, steering his heavy case away from the cold water by violently jerking the arm that was dragging it, but he heard an almost mocking wet sloshing sound from behind him anyway and let an aggravated growl crawl up his throat.
He was not in a good mood. Mikey had been foolishly tricked into letting Frank d
