“You were really good out there,” Erich says, cheeks turning pink with an embarrassed blush as he thinks back to the show. “Almost better than you were on the set of the movie.” Michael chuckles.
“It might have something to do with the fact that there’s an audience,” He says. “’Cause, you know, now I have thousands of people to impress each night.”
“Well, you definitely impressed me.” Erich says with a smile. Michael smiles as well.
“Oh did I, Gaudio?” He says, now smirking, slipping into that familiar Jersey accent with ease. “Wanna show me how much I impressed you?” Erich laughs, shaking his head.
“You know I’d love to, Nicky,” He says. “But wait till we get back to the hotel, at least.” Michael laughs.
