It had been two weeks since Andy saved Mel, he was completely smitten with her. But something was not right about her, as far as I know you don't just get over depression like that. Since she tried killing herself she hasn't hurt herself once, has always been happy and has eaten just like any normal teenager, I didn't understand it!
It was two weeks since I'd tried killing myself however since I was saved, my life had only changed for the better, I was two weeks clean from cutting, I had felt genuinely happy for the first time in months, I didn't feel fat or ugly in anyway and I was backstage at the Manchester with my idol and new best friend Andy Biersack! Good times.
Andy was really nervous for the performance, I tried to reassure him but he didn't really listen, he wasn't normally this anxious so I was worried about him.
In the minutes leading up to the beginning of the performance, you could feel the anxiety in the air, I think they were nervous except CC; he seemed to be really happy and carefree tonight, then again, when didn't he?
The band walked on stage as the crowd roared and screamed. Every night the crowd seemed to get louder and louder. Being at a crowd in a concert is one thing but watching a crowd at a show and just seeing how insane they are is another. All of a sudden, I saw Ella Cole approaching me. My heart skipped a beat, I had never spoken to her before.
"Hey," she said in a superior manner, "so your the infamous Mel?" I was quite overwhelmed by her attitude, maybe she wasn't as nice as everyone had made her out to be. I swallowed, nodded and looked straight into her eyes.
"I'm not that amazing," she said playfully whilst giggling, "I was once only a normal girl like you." At that moment all my bad thoughts for Ella disappeared, how had I ever thought she was a horrible person? Beats me anyway. "I would love to be like you one day." I said in awe.
"Why?" Ella asked.
"Well," I began, "you're super nice, an idol to many girls, you cope well with pressure from haters and on top of that your really skinny and really pretty. You're hilarious and just say everything how it is, if I could be like you one day I would be completely happy." Ella started to laugh, was she laughing at me?
"Well thank you," she stuttered, "but you don't have to be super skinny to be pretty." I just stared into the distance wondering why 3 weeks ago I wouldn't have believed that by now I did, "I'd prefer to have a fuller figure like you," Ella finished. Well that really made me take notice,
"really?" I asked, "how could you want to look like me?"
"Trust me, I'd love to have bigger boobs and bum and to be more curvy." I was overwhelmed, Ella Cole wanted to look like me? That was a first, hardly anyone, correction NO ONE ever wanted to look like me so why did one of my biggest idols and fashion situations?
"Your bum and boobs are perfect just the way they are," I said and I knew that this was the beginning of a wonderful friendship. Ella and I carried on chatting away until all of a sudden, Andy stepped off stage and kissed me. I was shocked, I didn't know what to do so I just kissed him back. It was beautiful. In the heat of the kiss I could feel his lip ring bringing a certain coolness that just made the kiss more perfect. The next thing I knew he has pulled away and was now on stage singing Rebel Love song. I just stood there staring. I didn't know what to do, I was speechless.
"Caught the love bug have we?" Ella questioned jokingly. I tried to answer but no words came out, I was so stunned. She started laughing at me and before I knew it I was laughing with her.
Suddenly, I felt a strong arm pull me onstage, it was Andy, before I even realised what was happening, Andy was kissing me. Andy was kissing me, on stage at a black veil brides show, during the guitar solo in Rebel Love song, in front of over 2000 people. I couldn't believe this was happening. Andy pulled away from the kiss and sung the next part of the song straight into my eyes,
"Never gonna change my mind, we can leave it all behind, nothing's gonna stop us, no not this time..."
The crowd were going crazy. I couldn't tell whether they loved me or hated me. As the song finished, Andy said,
"Ladies and Gentlemen, meet my beautiful girlfriend, Mel" and kissed me again. Ashley whistled and I could hear all the fans chanting our names "Andy and Mel, Andy and Mel..." Over and over and over. This was more perfect than I had ever imagined it.
I was cared for, I was loved, but more importantly, for the first time in my life, I was happy...
