"Skylar and Katy?" a tall and buff man asked us after the concert. We nodded yes as he continued, "The band have asked to see you now. Please follow me closely."
My eyes were wide and a smile was plastered on my lips as we were led backstage. Girls were staring at us with envy evident in their eyes as we passed by them. Some girls tried to follow us, but once we got to the backstage door they were stopped by the security.
The man told us to wait in a room which contained a table full of snacks along with water, there were a few couches set up against the walls and there was a television set in a corner. Katy sat down on the couch furthest from the door and set her things beside her.
I took a deep shaky breath, "Katy, I don't know how to feel right now." I said just above a whisper.
She looked me in the eyes and she looked petrified. "Me either. I'm so excited, but what if they don't like us? What if we embarrass ourselves in front of them?"
"I don't know. Okay, lets take deep breaths and stat calm. They'll probably hate us if we freak. Ugh, Katy!" I moved her things onto the floor with my own belongings and sat next to her. "Can we go? Sneak out and act like we were never here?"
"Gosh, no! Sky this is our chance. If. . . If we don't take it now, we never will!" Katy said as she gave me a side hug.
We had waited for roughly five minutes before the door opened. Katy and I looked over to who had entered, it was only the guy from earlier.
"Boys, they're in this room." he said to the people behind him.
And cue 5 Seconds of Summer. Michael walked in first with Calum following closely behind. Luke and Ashton were the last two to enter. I suddenly had felt intimidated by the boys so stood up.
"Hi!" Katy had practically yelled. I turned to look at her and she just smiled. "I'm Katy! I just want to say I'm very excited and scared to be here right now."
Michael was the first to speak, "There's no need to be scared, Katy. At least you're excited!"
Everyone turned to face me as I stood there awkwardly. I hadn't said a word to the guys and couldn't think of anything. I raised my fingers in a small wave and tried to smile.
"She's scared shitless." Katy stated.
"Don't need to be scared guys! Honestly!" Ashton said with a huge smile on his face. And those dimples. I couldn't help but smile back at him. "There we go! Skylar, right?" he asked.
I nodded, "Yes. It's an honour to meet you all." I stuck my hand out to the closest guy, Luke, for him to shake. But he decided to hug me instead. It was a very nice hug if I say so myself. "Thank you." I said afterwards.
"My turn!" Calum and Katy yelled at the same time which made everyone laugh.
When I got to giving Ashton a hug, I didn't want to let go. It was better than I thought it would be! His arms fit perfectly around me, making me feel secure. They were warm and he smelt really good which meant he had a shower before meeting us. I squeezed my arms around his torso and rested my head on his shoulder for a few seconds while closing my eyes. I heard laughing and let go of him.
"What's funny?" I asked the others.
"What's you twitter?" Luke asked while he was on his phone.
"Oh. . . I'd rather not say." I didn't want Ashton to know my twitter. He'd think I'm nuts and probably not want to be near me and he'd hate me and I'd die of embarrassment if he found out.
Katy started giggling so i shot her my evilest look. "I know it!" she said to Luke.
"Tell me?" he asked her.
"Katy, no! Oh, my gosh." I felt my cheeks start to blush.
"She's blushing!" Calum teased.
"Okay, Skylar just tell me please." Luke said a bit impatiently.
"FuckmeAshton," Katy said on my behalf. "Sorry, Sky."
I sat down on the nearest couch and covered my face while everyone was laughing. "Ashton, I'm sorry. I am so embarrassed right now!" I felt someone sit next to me and put their arm around my shoulders.
"It's alright." Ashton said, then whispered in my ear, "I'm quite honoured actually."
