The rest of this and next week we were getting ready for an awards show (the name was obnoxious like Boomerang! or something), and everyone was way stressed.
"Katherine! Katherine!" I heard.
I rushed around the building looking for where the noise was coming from.
I finally found Jesa in thr makeup room.
"What's wrong?" I asked breathless.
"I was checking the clothes for the show and Jinxx and Ashley are missing their accessories." She explained.
"Okay, I'll go figure out what has happened."
"That's babe, you're a doll."
I headed for the studio room and found CC and Ashley messing around.
"Hey, Babe. Where've you been?" Ashley asked pulling me into a hug.
"Everywhere." I said reaching up to kiss him, "You and Jinxx are missing your accessories for the show. Do you have any idea where they are?"
"We put them in the boxes where they were." He explained.
"That airhead!" I yelled.
"Jesa?" CC asked.
"She just doesn't understand the difference between 'missing' and 'misplaced'." I laughed.
"So," Ashley said, "how did your shopping trip with Andy go?"
I couldn't breathe for a second, "Great! Yeah, I got a gor-... adorable dress." I said.
I almost used the same descripition Andy did. It has been a few days but I couldn't get the day out of my head.
"Can't wait to see it on you." He said.
We kissed then he moved to my ear.
He pulled away and I smiled.
"Don't worry." I said.
We were headed to the show in a couple different cars, and, lucky me, I got stuck in a car with Andy. We were in the last car and Ashley was in the first, so naturally, I felt completely suffocated.
"Your dress still looks great." Andy said.
"What are you trying to do?" I acussed.
"Damn! I was just trying to be nice."
"Yes, but you've been 'being nice' for a while now and I just don't know how to respond." I explained.
I looked over at him and he had a serious face.
"Maybe with some appreciation."
"What is that..."
He came over and mashed his lips against mine, but it quickly melted into a delicious mix of our tastes.
As his hand creeped up my thigh I pulled away.
"Andy! You know his isnt right!" I forced.
"Then why did you participate?" He asked, wiping my lipstick off his face.
I pulled out my compact and lipstick and fixed myself before we got to the building.
The door was opened and I saw Ashley waiting for me. He grabbed my hand and helped me out of the car.
"Are you okay, Kat?" He asked.
"Of course. Are you ready to tell the world who I am?" I replied.
He smiled and kissed me on the cheek.
"More than ever."
We entwined our fingers and headed for the pap area. Ashley and I posed for some basic pictures as they paparazzi shouted; asking who I was, then Ashley pulled my into a soft kiss.
The paps went even crazier and we laughed.
Ashley pulled me down to the next area and I looked back to see Andy posing for a few photos. He stared right back with a blank face. I looked down then back to Ashley.
I waited as we caught up to the others so the band could take a few group pictures. I waited in the archway that seperated the areas as they answered a few questions. Jesa came up behind me and I jumped a little.
"Hey, how's it going?" She asked.
"Um, okay... so far, I guess."
I was still extremely distracted by what happened in the car. Ashley looked over and smiled. He waved me over and I said goodbye to Jesa as she headed backsatge.
I made my way over to Ashley as the cameras nearly blinded me. He gretted me with a long kiss.
"Hi." I laughed.
"Hey, CC and I have to go do a quick interview before it starts, but Andy's going to introduce you to that photographer." He explained.
"Oh, um... okay." I said unsure.
"Okay," he kissed me again, "see you soon."
He rushed off to catch up with CC sauntered over.
"Hi." He said.
"Shut it." I replied.
"You didn't have to participate."
I whipped my face up to his, "You didnt have to start it."
"Come on," he looped his arm through mine and dragged me into the venue.
Once we were free of the cameras I pulled my arm away from his. He looked at me then shrugged. We walked past a lot of celebrities before we got to the woman I wanted to talk to.
"Ms. Jenks," Andy said.
"Hello," her voice was soft but I could tell she had a lot of power.
"I'm Andy Biersack from Black Veil Brides, and this is our band's personal photographer, Katherine Dae."
I held my hand out, and she smiled and took it into hers.
"Hello, Darling. You're such a pretty young thing."
"Um, thank you ma'am." I said nervously.
"Layla, please." She said.
"Excuse me," Andy said.
He headed over to the bar.
"So," Layla started, "I'm assuming you have a passion for photography."
"Yes, actually." I laughed, "I was actually hoping to get your opinion on some of my pictures tonight. We had some of them organized to play behind the band when they receive their award."
"Ah, well, of course I will," She smiled, "but what I want to know is how you became the personal photographer for Black Veil Brides, Katherine."
"Well, Ashley, the bassist, is actually my boyfriend." I explained.
"Interesting. Did you do it for the job?" She inquired.
"No! I mean, no. Ashley and I met before I got the job; that was actually Andy's doing."
"You must be thankful."
"I guess, they're all great people, management included."
The lights flickered; warning everyone that ten minutes was left.
"Well, Katherine, it was great meeting you, and I expect to see you after the show."
"Of course." I said.
She walked off to find her seat and I took a deep sigh.
