Promise?

I want a best friend: Someone who will hug me tight when I'm down. Someone who will beat up the guys that hurt me. Someone who knows every single detail about me. Someone who will make laugh until I cry. Someone I can be myself with. Someone who won't cause too much fucking drama. Someone who keeps all of his promises. Someone who I will eventually fall in love... And someone who will eventually love me back.

Prologue

First Concert Ever

 

I let out a puff of breath. It was so cold that I could see my own breath. I tried to ignore the fact that I was freezing and focused on the fact that my best friend was going to be on the stage soon. He was about to perform for the very first time. I brought my cold hands to my mouth and blew air trying to keep them from turning to stone. 

This was incredibly stupid. Okay, maybe not, I'm his best friend after all right? Gotta support him no matter what, though everyone else here was mad, how dare you be out waiting for some lad to sing when the temperature is like -2ºC... Even if he was good, was dying from hypothermia worth it?

 

"Ladies and gentlemen!" The announcer caught the attention. "In a few moments Slate Hunter will come out!" Everyone shouted louder. "But you will have to prove that you want him here!" More screaming.

I felt a coat being placed on my shoulders, I turned around and saw Slate smiling down at me. "Can't have you dying from hypothermia before I play." He added with a wink.

"Thanks." I smiled. "I am going to turn into the ice princess." I laughed. "Though for that I should be pretty." 

"You're pretty, Scotty." Slate kissed my head. "I have to go. Don't move from here okay?"

"Ditto." I nodded. "Hope you break a leg." 

"For you, always." He added with a wink and left me alone once again. 

 

I slipped my arms and zipped up the coat, by the smell of it, I knew that Slate was using it right before they changed his wardrobe. I placed the hands on the pockets and started balancing my weight on my feet, trying to have some type of movement so I didn't die. 

I knew this was really important for Slate, if he pulled it off, it meant that he was going to get the contract and then tour the world. His CD 'Promise Me' was already out and it had been a hit, but his recording company wanted a concert to see how many people were going to attend. 

 

I was on the side on the stage, watching every fangirl scream out for my best friend. They didn't know about my existence and I begged Slate to leave it that way. I pretended to be part of his team, like the assistant manager or something like that. I knew what I was going to be involved if I let Slate tell the world who I am. I just hope we can keep it that way.

 

The lights went off and the screams got louder. I heard the familiar footsteps and I smiled, as I knew that he was preparing himself to rock out. I clapped my hands and did the secret whistle, only to hear a chuckle. 

 

You slip your finger through the tear in my t-shirt
You stirrin' up dirty in the back of my mind
You keep on flirtin' cause you know that it's workin'
You stuck in my head girl writing the lines
Couldn't sing this song without you if I tried
Let's light it up like it's our last night

We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you, baby
Laying right here naked in my bed
I'm just doing my thing
You love it when I sing
Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

Girl when you want it, you know that I'm on it
You know that I love lovin' up on you
Let's hit the switch and let our shadows dance
And light it up like it's our last chance

We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you, baby
Laying right here dreaming in my bed
I'm just doing my thing
You love it when I sing
Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

I wanna rock it all night
Baby girl, will you rock it out with me?
I wanna crawl through the dark
Just to feel your heartbeat against me
[x2]

We're just hanging around

Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

I wanna rock it all night
Baby girl, will you rock it out with me?
I wanna crawl through the dark
Just to feel your heartbeat against me

 

 

I shouted and clapped after he had finished is very first song. I absolutely loved the way he performed. He was a natural, he always knew how to act when in spotlight, and he surely knows how to get a crowd wild.

 

"Thank you!" Slate said. "I would like to thank everyone of you who came here tonight! I know that the weather isn't the best one, but you are still here, and for that I love you!" Everyone shouted. "I also like to tell you that this very first concert is dedicated to my biggest fan. You'll son figure out who that person is." He turned around to grab a water bottle and winked over at me. 

 

I mouthed him an idiot and then blew him a kiss. Ladies and gentlemen, my best friend Slate Hunter.
