27. Meet Joey

The tour is about to begin, and I haven't talked much to Louis.
I try to hang out with Niall before the tour starts, but he's always too busy with his other friends.
At least Marie is working on her movie set so I don't have to worry about her.
The first concert of the tour is local, so Skyler and I don't worry too much about missing it or being late.
We pack while the boys rehearse all day, and when we finish, we meet them at the arena.
The concert hasn't started yet, so we settle backstage and wait for the boys to finish sound check.
We take a seat on a couch.
There are a lot of crew guys walking around, and I notice one who looks pretty attractive.
I turn to Skyler.
"Look at that guy holding the wires," I whisper in her ear.
She looks over and turns back to me, eyebrows raised.
She's impressed by my good taste.
"Go talk to him, you're not married," she whispers.
"No!" I whisper yell, "you know I can't."
"Just think of it this way- we're going to be touring with these guys for a few months. You gotta get to know them."
"No. No way. Besides, as far as they're concerned, I'm dating Louis."
"And that'll be over in a month or so- you gotta get yourself a real boyfriend."
"Whatever," I tell her, "you know I'm not confident enough for that."
She ignores this and changes the subject, and instead we talk about how excited we are for the tour.
Luckily, we only have teaching jobs that break for the summer, so we don't need to take any time off.
When the boys are back from sound check, Harry takes my spot on the couch while I take a seat on another chair.
Niall runs up to me and throws himself on top of me.
"Best friends forever!" he yells.
"Get off ya fattie," I say to him as I push him off.
"Humph," he exclaims, and then walks away to get himself a drink.
Louis sits in a chair across from me, and from the corner of my eye I can tell he's looking at me, although I refuse to make eye contact with him.
We all sit and talk for a while until the boys have to go onstage for the start of the concert.
Skyler and I just hang out, and about halfway through the concert the crew guys come to sit and talk with us.
Skyler makes it very clear that Harry is her boyfriend, and I can tell all of the guys are disappointed.
I make it clear that I'm only there for her, but no one seems to be excited about that.
Until the crew guy from earlier turns to me.
"So, Amanda, can I call you Mandy?"
"Yeah sure, except I don't know your name," I say guiltily.
He laughs; it's a nice laugh.
"My name's Joey."
"Sorry," I say.
"It's okay. But to make it up for me, why don't you go out to dinner with me some time?"
I open my mouth to answer, honestly astonished, but instead hear someone answer for me.
"She can't."
I look up to see Louis, along with all the other boys, backstage.
"She has a boyfriend."
