I showed up to the venue with the pass around my neck.
Everyone was giving me looks, but I just kept my head high.
Someone came behind me and took me by the arm.
“Excuse me, this young lady is coming with me.”
“I looked at his name tag and apparently, his name was Vinny.”
Once we got backstage he said, “I am incredibly sorry-”
“It’s fine,” I smiled.
I saw Rian, and said hi.
Just after I saw a girl kiss him on the cheek. It was Cassadee.
I went up to her, and she hugged me.
“It’s so nice to see you. I heard you and Jack are together.”
Just then I felt as I had judged her this whole time. Cassadee was actually really nice.
“Don’t tell Alex about this, we haven't quite told him yet.”
“It’s fine, I’m pretty sure you can talk to him about it.”
“Great,” she said refreshingly.
“Hey loser,” Jack appeared behind me.
I screamed, but Jack covered my mouth.
I punched him on the arm.
“Oww,” he whinned.
He was about to go on stage.
I gave him a good luck kiss.
A little while later, Alex gets on stage alone.
He sits down, and tunes his guitar.
“This song goes out to someone who you love... That you can't have whether it’s a family member, or someone that means a lot to you.”
Once Alex starts strumming I recognise the song.
Towards the middle of it I start tearing up. I know he’s talking about me.
Don’t cry Angel, you can make it through.
Tears start tearing down my face.
I can’t do this.
I look for the exit, but then Jack stops me.
"Are you okay?"
I try to cover my face. I nodded my head.
He hugged me and I whispered in his ear.
“I love you too.”
I tried to get away, but he held onto me.
“Please don’t go.”
“I have to.”
Just like that...the song was over, and Jack had to get back on stage.
