charlie’s life on the road wasn’t easy. as a teenage girl who needed to stay off the grid, she had a tough time finding safe places to eat and sleep. so when she found harvelle’s roadhouse, run by the overbearing but undeniably loving ellen and her adorable daughter jo, charlie was in no hurry to get back on the road. for a few weeks she spent her evenings at the roadhouse’s long wooden bar, looking up at her new favorite waitress from under her eyelashes. charlie got the feeling that jo’s claims that she “didn’t swing that way” weren’t as genuine as everyone else seemed to believe—and a few coins into the jukebox and some horrifically bad 80s love ballads later, she found that proving herself right was every bit as satisfying as she’d hoped.
