I couldn't wait! Me and my friends Maryse and Max were going to be playing live in Brixton with our band The Tainted! We were walking down the steps of our tour bus with our band members Dastan as our harmony guitarist, Brooke as our bass guitarist, Max as our drummer, Maryse on lead electric guitar and me as vocalist. I was wearing an awesome gothic shirt with safety pins closing up the holes that I had cut in it, along with my torn black jeans, with chains dangling from them one of the being a demonic pentagram. I had my black hoodie on with my choker and my locket. I was also wearing my black and glow in the dark knee high converse. I flicked my waist length snow blonde hair over my shoulder and laughed with my friends. Maryse was my fashionista friend and one of my closest friends. Her bright green eyes shone out from behind her pitch black mid-back wavy hair. She was drop-dead gorgeous, and in her opinion so was I. Max was my crazy little sister, and could make anybody laugh in an instant. She had shoulder length choppy black brown hair with her green highlights that covered her dark grey eyes. All of us were wearing heavy black make up. I heard a bus pull up as I was carrying in equipment and looked up. A black tour bus pulled up next to the venue. I gasped and spun around to look at my friends and then back to the bus as five men disembarked, all of them wearing nothing but black. I nodded to my band and we approached. The main one looked up and saw us approaching. We stopped in front of them, staring at them. I put my hand to my forehead.
"I really hope that they haven't double booked again..."
The guy looked up and for a minute I thought it was a female because of the long eyelashes and the pouty lips. And then he spoke.
"You guys are playing tonight as well? I thought it was just us, D.R.U.G.S and Reckless Love..."
Maryse looked at him through her straight fringe as I stared at him in shock and awe of his insanely deep voice.
"We thought it was just us."
The main guy looked at his band mates, and I admit he was cute. But I had a boyfriend at home, so I pushed all thought of doing anything to him out of my mind. He held out a hand to me.
"I'm Andy, singer of Black Veil Brides. This is Jake, Jinxx, CC, and Ashley," he pointed to all of them in turn, " and you are?"
I smiled at him and he was singer of one of my favourite bands.
"I'm Skye, singer of The Tainted. This is Maryse, Max, Brooke, and Dastan," I pointed to them. He smiled as if he knew my band.
"I love your music. Well, we only have one way to solve this."
I raised an eyebrow.
"And how would that be?"
Ashley looked at me, as if he knew what Andy was thinking.
"You guys can perform after D.R.U.G.S and before us. I'm sure the manager set it up this way on purpose anyway..."
I looked over at Maryse and she looked back.
"I'll get my father to deal with it..."
"Awesome. Now, let's get this party started. And afterwards, I plan on getting piss drunk."
My band cheered in agreement as we walked towards the door. I looked back and saw them standing there. I smiled.
" You guys coming?"
They looked at me and nodded and followed me into the backstage area; and we rocked through the night.
4 hours later...
We were on our bus. We hung out with the guys from Black Veil Brides and they were awesome. I got so many pictures of me and Andy and he even kissed my cheek in one. There was no one left except for us, and Andy said they had some time before they had to leave. So we just sat in a big circle on our tour bus, talking, exchanging stories and jokes. But then I flicked my fringe. There was a scar that I had forgotten I had. It started just above my right eyebrow, went through it, over my eye; although I still had full vision in that eye; and it ended about half-way down my cheek. Andy stared at it in shock and I caught him staring. Then I remembered and instantly put a hand over it. Andy pulled me up and dragged me away. I glared at him. He sighed.
"How did it happen?"
As he spoke, he ran a finger over the cheek part of my scar. My eyes looked at him.
"Are you worried about a stranger?"
He hesitated for a moment.
"Yeah, I suppose I am."
It was my ex-boyfriend. I really don't want to talk about the details."
My eyes were wide. I really didn't understand why this was so important to me, or why I even asked her why she had that scar or why I was so concerned. I just felt this weird urge to protect her with everything I had. And I knew that the young girl in front of me had been through a lot more than she was letting on.
Skye looked up into the powder blue eyes of the rock star; the eyes that were burning with emotion yet so calm and gentle. She smiled.
"You have such gentle eyes Andy."
He looked down at her in surprise and smiled.
"Thanks, I know."
Skye giggled and they walked back to the circle and took their seats. Jake handed Skye his guitar. She looked confused and saw Ashley and Andy teaching Maryse and CC and Jinxx talking to Max. Jake smiled at her. The rest of my band had gone out to get piss drunk. Typical.
"Maryse told me that you play some electric. So I was wondering if you would like to learn how to play Fallen Angels."
Skye's eyes lit up.
"Would I?! Let's do this!"
After a couple of hours, Skye was playing fluently. Everyone stopped talking to hear her play. But the magical spell of the music was broken when they heard a yell.
She immediately stiffened and she felt her heart beat speed up in fear. Everyone noticed. Andy was shocked at her sudden change in character.
"Fuck, he found me..."
Andy was shocked at her sudden change in character.
"It must be him
A young man with short brown hair and piercing grey eyes full of hate stormed over to Skye, grabbed her upper arm and pulled her up harshly. She yelped in pain.
"SKYE! That's enough! It's time to come home to me!"
She glared at him as she scoffed.
"Oh my God Haydon!! Get it through your head!! I'm with someone else now, someone who treats me a whole lot better than you did! Get it through your thick skull and realize that I'm happy without you!"
He growled at her words and gripped her arm tighter making her yelp in pain. Andy and the other BVB boys stood up and approached him. Jinxx pulled him off Skye and gripped his arm.
"Dude, I don't know who you are, but I think you'd better leave"
Haydon glared at the arm on his.
"And I suggest you'd better remove your arm."
Jinxx didn't let go so Haydon yanked his arm from his grip. Andy's ice cold eyes glared at him.
Haydon growled and left. Max and Maryse rushed forward and held their friend. Maryse stroked her friend's hair lovingly and comfortingly.
"I'm so sorry Skye, this was meant to be a night where you could forget him, and I should have made sure that he couldn't come."
Skye gave a watery smile to her friend.
Maryse rocked her as she began to cry.
"Shh, baby girl I'm here for you."
Meanwhile the boys just stood there and watched this unfold. Andy's eyes stared at them. He really wanted to help somehow, but he knew he couldn't. Their tour manager came up to them.
"Andy, it's time to leave."
Andy almost disagreed but he knew he couldn't. He walked up to Skye, Maryse and Max and laid a hand on Skye's shoulder. Her tear filled eyes turned around to look at him as his gentle powder blue eyes looked down at her, emotion raging like a blue fire in his eyes.
"We have to leave."
She nodded and sniffled quietly before wiping her eyes. She turned around and wrapped her arms around his neck as he wrapped his arms around her waist tightly and held her close. They broke apart and Andy placed a gentle kiss upon her forehead and looked down at her surprised face. He smiled.
"Be strong and I'll be here when you need me."
She nodded and he slipped a piece of paper into her pale shaking hand and out of our bus and towards his tour bus with his band brothers. Skye looked down at the folded paper in her hand and unfolded, smiling as she read it.
Whenever you need me
As well as this small yet significant message was a phone number, an email and a BBM pin number. She smiled and turned around to face her excited looking friends.
They linked arms and walked out of the bus to enjoy the rest of the night. Although, they had a very nice surprise for the BVB boys
