9. chapter 9
Heading out of the airport we saw a group of girls huddles together in the lobby, some holding 5sos posters and wearing 5sos shirts all cuddled together. I could tell Luke got nervous as we saw a quick glance with them as he turned around an looked at me and gave me a half smile. "You better go talk to them." I said pushing him a bit their way. "You don't mind?" He said stepping closer to me. I shook my head and smiled as he bent down to kiss me.
I knew how important his fans were. They let him live his dream everyday and helped support him and the rest of the guys. I wasn't going to let Luke loose connection with his fans especially because of me. As soon as he walked around the corner the already loud girls became so much more louder. Their wasn't that many girls there, possibly around 75 but boy were they loud. I stood back and watched and Luke took pictures with them and talked to them and signed whatever he gave them.
I watched him talking to some of the girls when they suddenly all looked my way, pointed, and waved me over. I was a bit confused at first but I soon figured they just wanted me to take some pictures for them so I headed their way. "Oh my god you are so beautiful!!" They said to me as I walked up. I smiled and blushed a bit as I had never really had a group of girls call me beautiful before. "Can we take some pictures with you?!" They said facing their cameras towards Luke and I. I was confused but smiled for all the pictures. Suddenly I found myself talking with the girls and posing for dozens of photos. They kept calling me "queen" and complimenting me. I was very confused but I went along.
Eventually we had to be taken away as the tour bus arrived for us. As we were walking away I said to Luke, "what was that all about?" He smiled down and kissed me head and said "they love you. You're their idol." I laughed. Me an idol? "And what did I do to deserve this idol title?" He grabbed me hand, "You're perfect that's why." What a cheese ball I thought as I lightly punched his arm then pulled him close.
"VANESSA!!" Michael screamed as he ran to hug me. "Hi Michael!" I said as he spun me around. I was soon then tackled by Ashton and Calum next with great big hugs and a lot of spinning. The bus took us to the arena where we got off and headed to the boys dressing room. Tonight would be the first time I was going to see the boys perform live on stage and I wasn't going to lie for some strange reason I was extremely nervous. The guys had introduced me to a bunch of their help an tech crew who would be with us the entire way.
We were all chilling in their dressing room when someone knocked on the door and a head peaked in. It was a really skinny tiny girl with pretty wavy purple hair. "Ready for your makeover boys?" She said walking in with a bag full of hair tools. She turned to me and smiled "You must be Vanessa. Luke talks about you all the time! I'm Lou 1Ds and the boys hairdresser. I make them look good." She said putting out her arms to hug me. "It's nice to meet you!" I said. Lou spent time taking turns doing the guys hair and we talked and hung out. She was so funny and so cool to be around. I found out she had a daughter who was with her on tour and a her husband as well.
"So you excited to see your man perform for the first time tonight?" Lou said to me. We were alone now as the guys went to grab clean clothes and something to eat and drink. "to be honest I'm kind of nervous I don't know why thought it's weird." She laughed an grabbed my hand "Don't worry you won't be alone I will be there with you. I know why your nervous. It's the guy you love performing in front of screaming girls and you don't know what's going to happen trust me I get it" I smiled an hugged her.
The boys came back and we headed out. "Good luck tonight!" I said to Luke reaching up to wrap my arms around his neck and kissing him. He smiled down on me and winked. We both headed out separate ways mine to my special seats with Lou and him backstage where in 20 minutes he would perform in front of this already packed arena.
