Same old answer

There was one long break, which they spent in a Knight's Inn close to Akron. Bent held out for something classier but they couldn't exactly go looking. It really didn't matter. They got into the room and Gina had a shower. Bent sat in the chair by the window keeping an eye on the car. That was Bent.

She came to him right out of the water, chilled by the AC but in no mood to notice. Bent shucked his clothes fast as ever and they climbed on the bed, not bothering about the covers. It went the way it always did with Bent -- the same old answer to all her troubles. Maybe this time should have been different, but it wasn't. She held him tight as she came, then again as he came, and she told herself that this was what it would be like.
