I looked in the mirror and took a deep breath. "Today's the day" Dev said and I turned around and smiled. Dev is one of my closets friends, He is african american and we met when I was starting my career, he cared for me like a big brother and for that I am very thankful. He now works with me and will be touring with me the whole time."It is" I said, "You'll do great, don't worry" he said eating a grape. "Thanks Dev" I said and he smiled.
After my first concert, I was happy and relieved. I took a sip of my water bottle, "Great Job, I'm so proud of you" Dev said and we hugged. "That body was great though" he said joking. I laughed and we walked over to my dressing room. There was a bouquet of red roses and a note on it. I walked over to it and picked up the note. It read 'I hoped you liked the roses, Congrats on your first concert. I wish I was there to tell you in person. Much love, Justin (:' I smiled. "Who is it from, some sort of secret admirer" He joked again. I looked at him and he saw Justin's name. "Evelyn... are you guys dating" he said surprised. "No, were just friends" I said, "If you say so, just be careful. I don't want you getting hurt by him again" he said and I lightly smiled. "Thanks but we are nothing more than friends. I don't want us together like that. not anymore" I said, "Evelyn, you held his child once. It's hard to let that go" he said and I sighed, keeping the tears back. "Are you ever going to..." I cut him off. "I will, just not right now" I said. He nodded, "Have you heard from him", he said. I took a deep breath, "No, last time was during the Grammy's" I say resting my phone onto the table. "He has a new girl. Nothing like you...." he said smiling, "Dev..." I say, "It's the truth after all he blasted you on the Gram, when your fans were commenting your name on his pic with his girlfriend" he said and I shook my head in disbelief. My fans are crazy and they like to stick up for me even though its better to leave thing s alone. "He said,.. well lets,,, lets just talk about something else" he said and I nodded.
