I woke up to the sound of plates and forks clinking with small chatter in the background. But then I heard snoring. I looked down from my bunk to see Andy sleeping on the floor outside of his bunk. Maybe he rolled off in the middle of the night be either way I was going to tease him.
"What are you doing?" I said, still in my bunk, but loud enough for him to hear.
He opened his eyes slowly and looked straight up at me, "Sleeping." He closed his eyes once more.
"On the floor?"
"Yes. Anna. On the floor," he groaned, causing me to chuckle a little bit.
"You ask to many damn questions," he huffed. I waited a moment for him to open his eyes.
"Well maybe if you answered them..." I trailed off.
"Because I told you I don't like people sleeping in the bunk above me," he sat up, "So I slept on the floor."
I opened my mouth to say something but Ashley walked into the bunk area before I could. He had on a black jeans and no shirt so his 'Outlaw' tattoo was on full display. He had a black cowboy hat on his head and I frying pan in his left hand.
"Anna want breakfast?" he asked and smiled up at me.
"Yes please," I nodded and slipped off the bunk, careful to avoid Andy.
"I want breakfast to," Andy rolled his eyes and stood up, "Thanks for the offer Ash."
Ashley just laughed and so did I. It was then that I remembered that I was wearing Ashley's clothing. It was a pair of black sweatpants that felt like that would fall off my hips every time I walked and a big, grey T-shirt with a pocket on the left side of the chest.
In the kitchen/living room area, everyone else was eating there breakfast that Ashley had cooked. Jinxx was sitting at a table-booth thingy and Jake was sitting across from him. CC was sitting on the couch and smiled at me when I walked in.
"Morning Sis," he said and went back to eating.
"Morning Sis?" I questioned.
"Yep," he said matter-of-factly, "I've just decided that you're gonna be my little sister."
"Mine too," Ashley nodded.
"And me," Jinxx added then took another bite of his eggs.
"Mine also," Jake nodded and started talking to Jinxx once more.
I was expecting to hear Andy say it also but I hadn't noticed that he had already walked past me and disappeared into the bathroom.
"So now we all have a new sister," CC beamed and scooted over on the couch then patted the spot next to him. I smiled and sat down. He threw his arm around my shoulder and said, "I like having a little sister."
"I like having four big brothers," I laughed.
Ashley gave me a plate of food, which I thanked him for and gladly ate. Andy came out of the bathroom only moments later with a huge grin on his face.
"Juliet is coming to Las Vegas in about two days so she will be there while we are there and I want to give her a surprise visit because she's been acting strange lately."
"Do it man," Jake nodded.
"Sounds good," Jinxx threw his arm over the chair.
"That's sweet," I chimed in.
Andy raised an eyebrow at me and shook his head then walked off to talk to Ash.
"The fuck was that?" I whispered to CC.
He shrugged, "I dunno."
"Anna get over here we are taking a picture!" Ashley said after Andy walked through the bunk area and into the lounge area. The lounge area was basically a television and a couch.
"Ok," I said and took a few pictures with him. I noticed as he put them on Instagram.
The rest of the day went by surprisingly fast. Ashley let me borrow more clothes, which I was thankful for. By nightfall we were almost in Las Vegas. I was watching out the window, looking at the lights of the city surrounded by the blanket of night. I was completely alone. The mini microwave said it was almost one in the morning and as far as I was concerned, I was the only one awake. But I was proved wrong as I heard someone clear their throat. I turned my head to see Andy. Have I ever mentioned how tall he is?
"Yea?" I asked.
"Why aren't you in bed?" he asked.
"Why do you care?" I was really getting mixed signals from him. I mean I know he has a girlfriend so not like that, but he was mean to me one minute then nice to me the next. It was at night that he was nice to me, when we were all alone. Almost like he was putting on an act for the other boys?
"Well...Uh...I mean you weren't in your bunk so I," he puffed out a breath, "I figured I would come look for you."
"That's nice of you," I said sincerely.
"Uh... Yea sure," he furrowed his eyebrow and looked out one of the other windows.
It was quiet for a moment. A long silence as we both watched the lights of the city get closer to the bus. Las Vegas really was beautiful, despite what it was known for. Thinking of being in Las Vegas reminded me of Andy wanting to see Juliet.
"So when is Juliet going to be here?" I asked, but remained looking out the window. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Andy glance at me but then go back to looking through he glass.
"Tomorrow," he said and looked at the clock, " I guess since it is already morning."
Andy gave me the impression that he didn't like me. Which really, really got to me because he's always talking with his fans. That and he is apart if my favorite band. I would give my life for him just because he's one of my idols but he looks at me like I've grown three heads.
"Sorry," I blurted out, "I mean, Sorry about you guys coming to save me and coming to Las Vegas with you guys. It kind of seems like you don't want me around. I hope you know that as soon as we get there I will find some sort of way to get home on my own."
He looked over at me and just smiled. His teeth were white, even though the bus was dark. And his eyes glimmered that fabulous blue color, "I don't mind having you around at all. You're just different then any of my other fans. You didn't freak out or go crazy. You just stayed you and that threw me off a bit."
"Thanks," I said, "For everything you didn't need to help me that night but you did."
"Don't worry about it," he shrugged and looked out thew window again.
"Still. Thanks for saving me."
He looked over at me and in the incredibly deep voice of his said, "I don't mind being your Savior."
