Saving Michael

I went to Sydney in the winter of 2017 (summer in Australia). I didn't know who 5 Seconds of Summer were. What happened next changed my life.


15. Beginning to Remember

**3 Months after returning to Indiana

Shelby forced me to go and buy some 5 Seconds of Summer merchandise the day before the concert.

"Who are they?" I asked as I looked at the guys on the poster at FYE.

"That's Luke, Michael, Calum, and Ashton" Shelby said pointing to each one of them as she said their names.

"I recognize Michael," I said squinting my eyes, trying to figure out where I know him from. Luke seemed familiar too.

"You were in Sydney, maybe you saw him there are something," Shelby said.

"Maybe," I said, still confused.

"The concert is tomorrow so I'll spend the night," she said. I nodded while I picked out some wrist-bands and band shirts.

My family wasn't rich but we weren't poor either. The money I spent shopping was from odd jobs I did for family members or friends of the family. Shelby and I started walking towards Journeys and a guy with long brown dreads and a pony tail walked up to us and smiled.

"Hi, I'm Skipper. If you need anything I'll be at the desk." He pointed to a small desk in the middle of the store.

"Okay, oh! Can we get a 7 in those converse?" I asked.

"Sure," Skipper said, walking to the back. A few seconds later he came back with a set of size 7 Converse. I slipped them on and they fit perfectly.  I love the feeling of new shoes.

We decided to leave the mall and head home. On the drive a song came on that gave me the chills. It was as if I heard it before... as if someone had sung it to me. "What song is that?" I asked.

"Wrapped Around Your Finger" she said. "It's by the band we're seeing tomorrow. You'll love it."

The words spoke to me. They spoke to me in a very emotional way. It gave me the chills and made me want to cry.

"I'm really excited about going tomorrow," I said. "I can't wait!"
