17. Meet and Kiss
We gathered around backstage and waited for our queue to go onstage. I looked around at the guys faces and everyone shared a look of excitement and nervousness. I started to get nervous again as the moment grew closer, but then I just thought of Skylynn and how she was sitting in the front row of the audience. Our name was announced, and some crew guy gave us a nod. I took a deep breath and ran onstage.
The boys all came running out with huge smiles on their faces. Luke takes the Microphone. "Hi everyone! We're 5sos!" I clap for the boys and see Ashton searching the crowd. I raise my hand to get his attention. His eyes meet mine and he immediately brightens up and he winks. Then, the girl next to me turns and says "oh my god did you see that?" "See what?" I ask clueless. "The drummer dude totally just winked at me." she says as if I were supposes to know this already. I suppress a giggle and turn my attention back to the boys. "This song is called Beside You" They begin singing the song I already know so well and before I know it, they are on their last song. Ashton begins talking. "This is a new song that we just wrote and we hope you like it" he says staring directly at me. They start playing and immediately I know the tune. This is the song Calum and Ashton were rehearsing on the bus.
"You walked in
Everyone was asking for your name
You just smiled and told them "Trouble"
My head spins
I'm pressed against the wall
Just watching your every move
You're way too cool
And you're coming this way
Coming this way
How did we end up talking in the first place?
You said you liked my Cobain shirt
Now we're walking back to your place
You're telling me how you love that song
About living on a prayer
I'm pretty sure that we're halfway there
And when I wake up next to you I wonder how
How did we end up here?"
I'm watching Ashton the whole time and he's having the time of his life. I have a feeling he wrote this song about how quickly we starting dating, and I make a note to ask him later. The boys finish up their song and run off-stage. I leave the audience and go to meet them. I run towards Ashton and jump into his arms. "You guys were so amazing!!!" I exclaim. He hugs me tighter and says "That was the most amazing experience of my life." I giggle and kiss him. Pretty soon, we are interrupted by Michael, who tells Ash it's time for meet and greet. Katelin and I tag along to watch. It's pretty cute watching the boys interact with the fans. Everything seems to be going well until I spot the girl who was sitting next to me. I watch her cautiously as she goes from boy to boy. She reaches Ashton and does something that makes me want to throw her across the room. She grabs Ashton by the neck and kisses him. I stare shocked as he does nothing. I get up and storm out of the room. I go to the hair and makeup room and try to calm down. I'm fuming. I only have 5 minutes alone before Ashton bursts into the room. I turn away and don't speak to him. "Babe I didn't kiss her back!!" "After you left I pushed her off I swear nothing happened" "It took you a hell of a long time to push her off didn't it Ash?!'' We begin arguing and are suddenly interrupted by Calum. "Guys we need to go now. Niall just passed out on stage."
