Polaroid-an Imagine Dragons fanfiction :)

Arrow's life is like Imagine Dragons song Polaroid-she's wild, the color of boom, as unstoppable as a rolling freight train/

Arrow's mother has had enough. She's tired of Arrow's behaviour.

When Arrow turns 16, she finds out that Dan Reynolds is her real father. She is sent to live with him and Imagine Dragons in America, and has a summer she'll never forget....


7. When you feel my heat

Sorry I haven't updated this in ages, I've been really busy! Plus I didn't know what would happen next, so if this is crap, I'm so sorry! Enjoy!!

The next day, I'm the first awake. The tour bus is silent, and, due to the blacked-out windows, dark as well. Last night comes back with a slap. I pick up my phone from where I must have dropped it last night. I have a couple of new texts. I open them all and read them slowly.

Hey!!! How did the concert last night go? My tickets came, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I'll see you in Miami! Please text me back!!


Hello, Arrow. I hope you are behaving and not causing trouble.


I sigh and delete her text. I keep thinking of the song. I now hate my mother more than anything.

Why do you care? You broke Dad's heart. You should really listen to his songs, you know. You might find yourself in one, I think angrily. I feel tempted to type it, but decide not to bother. My mom isn't worth it.

I open the last text, and my heart flips.

Hey Arrow!! Aaron here. Can we meet at the ChocBlock Café at 1:30pm? I need to show you something...Plus they have amazing chocolate milkshakes!!!!!

See you soon maybe?


I smile as I read the text, then it's wiped straight off as a thought pops into my head. Dad will never let me go after last night. I sigh, and text back.

It sounds great! I'll see if I can go. I'll have to ask Dan (My dad!), but I'm sure he'll let me.


Just as I send the text, Dad and Wayne walk in. I sit up and look at them.

"Oh, you're awake," Wayne says.

"Look, about last night...I'm really sorry. I...I'd met a friend, and I was with him. I just lost track of time..." I apologize. Dad and Wayne look at each other.

"Thanks for apologizing, Arrow. It's just...you might not always be safe on your own. There are some really crazy fans out there, trust me. Some people would do literally anything to try to get closer to us, or just for our attention. You need to be careful." Dad said. I hung my head a little, trying to show that I really am sorry.

"Ok," I reply.


It's almost 1:30pm, and I still haven't asked Dad about meeting Aaron. He walks in, and I take the chance.

"Dad, my friend-the one I met last night-he wants me to meet him at ChocBlock Café at 1:30. Can I please go? I'll text you if we go anywhere else. I'll even wear a wig or something so no-one recognizes me! Please?" I practically beg. They all look at each other, and Dad runs a hand through his hair.

"Look, Arrow, last night...I'm not sure if I can trust you to come back at a certain time-" Dad begins, but Ben cuts him off.

"Dan, give the kid another chance. If she blows it, then we wont let her anywhere else on her own. If she doesn't blow it, then she's showing we can trust her," He says, and Dad considers it. Finally he relents.

"Fine. But be back by half five, no later. Text me if you're going anywhere else or if something goes wrong. I'll send my body guard to get you." He tells me, and I smile.

"Thanks, Dad!" I say, then go into my room to get ready. I do my makeup differently, put on my most laid-back jeans and hoodie, clip some bright extensions into my hair, pull it up into a bobble, put an old Smoke + Mirrors cap over it then slip on some fake glasses. I look completely different, not like me at all. I leave the tour bus quickly, so Dad can't change his mind too quickly. As I wait for the bus to come, I fire off a quick text to Aaron.

I'm on my way, and I'm in disguise! LOL, I never thought I would have to do this! Anyways, see you soon!!!


(At ChocBlock Café)

I walk up to the café, and see Aaron sat at one of the outside tables. I smile and walk over to him.

"Hey!" I say, and he jumps, then recognizes me.

"Oh, Arrow, hey! I didn't recognize...that's your disguise?!" He exclaims, laughing. I laugh as well and sit with him.

"Yeah, and it's working, as crappy as it is! Trust me, I'm already viral! Dad confirmed that I am his daughter, and my Twitter has blown up so much!" I tell him. I get about 50 tweets an hour since before the concert last night. I laugh and talk with Aaron for a while, then we buy milkshakes. When they come, I take a sip, then gasp.

"OMG it's amazing!!" I exclaim, and Aaron laughs at me. We talk some more, then I see something behind him. I gasp again, except this isn't a good one. Aaron suddenly looks worried.

"What?" he asks.

"Don't look behind you, but RUN, and don't let go of my hand," I whisper, and pull him up.

"Just follow me," he whispers back, and suddenly he's the one pulling me.

I can just hear them behind me, trying to follow us.
