In the Moment (E3 One Shot)

Sick and tired of being tossed around and cheated on, you break up with your boyfriend Keaton Stromberg. But things only make a turn for the worst, nothing goes as planned.


1. Distracted

     Keaton couldn't forget the cruel words he had said.  He couldn't get the image of your tear filled eyes out of his mind.  He had made you cry and it felt like the worst feeling in the world.  He was on tour now, he couldn't show up on your doorstep with a box of chocolates and a deep apology.  He couldn't even get in touch with you because you had stopped answering his calls and replying to his texts.  He had left many voice mails but they did nothing but sit in your mailbox and take up space, for you would never listen to them. You were too upset to talk to him.

     As he stood on the stage he could not hear the screams from the crowd, his thoughts were too loud.  He only heard your words, your bitter sweet words that still stung his heart with an unbearable sting.  It was his turn to sing now.  He looked from the floor to the mob of fans who's screams were now audible but sounded distant. Indigo, his song to you, that's what was playing, that's what he had to sing.  He couldn't find the strength to sing. He stood silently staring into the crowd. 

    Wesley and Drew turned their heads towards Keaton as the music continued to play. They had no idea what was going on with him.  Keaton had never acted like this before.  They figured it was stage fright that had struck the usually pumped up Keaton with silence. Keaton remained in an other-world state of mind during the entire concert.

    At the concerts end, his brother and Drew approached him with concern.  Keaton shrugged them off proclaiming it to be nothing and that he was fine. 

    Now he lay alone in the small bed of his hotel room cursed with yet another sleepless night. The clock struck two and he stay laying awake in bed feeling restless and down right depressed. Was this really it for you and him? Were all the years and all the love and all the memories to be forgotten and moved on from? Just the thought of being with somebody else and just letting you go seemed to feel impossible. He could never leave you, he loved you too much.

Just one more text.. Just one last call.. Then that's it...I'll give up.

     Keaton sat up and reached for his phone that lie on the table beside his bed. He dialed your number. Keaton came to a pause.  He was in doubt about his decision. He knew you weren't going to pick up, but something inside of him whispered that maybe this time you would. The thought lingered in the back of his mind rocking back and forth. With a quick movement of his thumb, he hit call and pressed the phone to his ear. He listened to each ring as they echoed throughout his body and shook his heart. Each ring broke his aching heart a little more.

Please pick up, please.
