"So that's how we met." I was looking at my hands the entire time. I couldn't make eye contact with anyone, if I did I would instantly break down into tears. The interviewer shook her head confirming everything I was saying. This interviewer was different, she wasn't pushy, she just listened and took everything in She wasn't pushing the microphone in my face, she wasn't bombarding me with questions, she was just listening.
____________________________________________________________________________ "So Jess, did you want a backstage tour?" I dipped my chin down trying to re connect our eyes, but she beat me to it. Her green eyes were staring back at me, with a certain glare, a sassyness. "I don't know Justin," she took a deep breathe and crossed her hands on her chest, "I just met you..." I stepped into her zone, I placed my hands on her hips, she didn't move or flinch. I put my nose a centimeter away from hers, she still didn't move. "Then why are we still standing here?" I grabbed her hand and began running towards the buses. We got to my bus. It was all the black with "Beat the street" written on it. I opened the door and we ran inside. "I thought you said backstage tour." Jess leaned in and put her elbows on her knees glaring at me, "This is backstage." i leaned back putting my arms along the top of the couch. "It's behind the stage right?" I heard a chuckle come from her, "smart ass.." I was now the one leaning forward, "What'd you say about my ass?" She looked down at her phone, I switched couches and began tickling her, "huh? huh? what did you say?" She was beyond normal laughing. "J! Stop! Imma pee in my pants!" her phone dropped to the floor, "tell me what you said then? What did you say Jess?" I didn't stop tickling her, "I said you were a smart ass!!!" I hopped off and grabbed her phone, "Hey!" she reached her hand for her phone, "What's the password to unlock it?" she tilted her head thinking I was kidding, I copied her, "Shall I tickle you again?" her eyes got big "6325. 6325!" I unlocked her phone, I kept it for about 5 minutes, I put my phone number in and started taking selfies, "Are you seriously taking selfies?" I looked up at her and smiled, "Would you like your phone back Jess?" she squinted her eyes together, "Yes J, I would" I started handing her the phone, then I pulled it back real fast, "Take a selfie first." she looked at me like I was joking, I did the one thing I could think of, I dropped onto my knees and crawled to her, I heard her sigh "Really J?" I put my head in her lap and began making puppy noises, I looked up into her green eyes and popped out my puppy dog lip. She combed through my hair with one hand and gently guided me up to sit next to her with the other. She took the phone from my hands and held it out in front of us, The first picture we took was her with a kissy face and me sticking my tongue out. The second was Jess giving herself a mustache with her hair and me looking at her smiling. The third was her head on my shoulder and me kissing her head. And the last one was me kissing her cheek and he smiling, "I like this one the best" she said pointing to the one of me kissing her cheek, "Me too." I grabbed the phone out of her hand and set it as my contact photo, she began laughing, "what??" I looked at her completely innocent, she cleared her throat and sat up straight, "Ohhh nothing 'Best person in the world that knows Jess and no one else can take my place'" she looked at me and smiled "that's a long ID caller J." I looked down and unlocked my phone, "Put your number in?" I handed he my phone, I can't believe I am doing this, what if she was a secret reporter just getting information? Or what if she didn't care? Jess handed me the phone back with the caller ID as: Jess<3. I combed my fingers through my hair and that's when some one I wish I would never see again opened the doors to my bus and walked in. Great.
