3. Dear God (M. Shadows)


Note: This is loosely based on a dream I had one morning and it’s also an entry in the Strange The Dreamer competition on Movellas under “Crazy for U” Hope you guys enjoy it.




I read the text from Matt sent late last night as soon as I got up. He let me know that their manager just added a few shows to the tour which meant we won’t see each other until August 4th when they’re in town. I was so happy for him especially when he and the guys managed to pull a fast one on their fans by dropping a new album and then when he told me they were going on tour I was ecstatic because I knew how much this meant to him but now to hear that I have to wait to see him, I don’t know if I can wait that long. I stared at his text one more time before replying.


”So I won’t see you for 4 months?”


“I know it’s asking a lot but it’ll all be worth it when I get to see that beautiful face of yours.”


“Sometimes I wonder how I got pulled into this and every time you remind me how.”


“How do I remind you?” he questioned.


“It’s two reasons actually the first being your charm and the second being your dimples.”


“And let’s not forget this,” he sent a picture of his handsome face and the famous beard everybody’s been talking about. “Beard boss, says don’t be blue because I love you.”


“I love you too, you cheesy bastard.”


“As much as I want to keep this going on I gotta go, talk later.”


I sat on the edge of my bed reading those three words over and thinking about how I got here. It wasn’t that long ago that this was just a dream, something I would wish about but knew full well it would never happen, yet, here I am almost two years later and it’s real. After a while, I got out of bed and started getting ready for the day while I listened to Avenged Sevenfold just to feel close to him. A few songs had gone by, but then it was the one song that I knew the words couldn’t be any truer and made me feel close to him.


“Dear God, the only thing I ask of you is to hold her when I’m not around when I’m much too far away. We all need the person who can be true to you but I left her when I found her and now I wished I stayed.” I sang along as I got ready for a night out with my friends. Not much going on in my life since Matt and the guys are on tour but today was my day off from work and I didn’t feel like staying home all day.


“Ricki,” Tanya came into my room. “I think Zacky’s cheating on me.” Before I could even ask her what she meant she flashes her phone at me with a picture of Syn grabbing Zacky’s ass on-stage. I burst out laughing.


“Zacky’s such a whore,” I commented then my phone dinged.


“Hey what’s my bestest friend been up to?”


“You’re a whore,” I replied


“Me? What makes you say that?”


I looked up from my phone and told Tanya to text me the picture then I sent it to Zacky.



“It’s a good thing Matt is loyal.”


“Wanna bet?” Zacky replied with a picture of Matt kissing his cheek. It was just taken because Matt was wearing the same hat and shirt from his picture earlier on.


“These hoes ain’t loyal.” I texted Meanwhile Tanya had been peeking over my shoulder reading the whole conversation laughing the entire time, then next thing we know Zacky sends another picture this time with both Syn and Matt kissing each cheek. “I think we need new boyfriends.”



“Rick, I have to go it's Jess, she needs me but I’ll see you later tonight,” Tanya shouted.


“It’s always something with her.”


“I know but she’s my baby sister.”


“It’s fine, just know that if you’re late or don’t show you’ll be missing all the fun.”


“I’m sure you’ll give me the play-by-play of what you can remember the next morning.”


“You’re gonna wish you were there.” I continued to taunt her jokingly. “But in all seriousness let me know if you need me to come over.”


“You don’t have to do that Ricki, she’s my sister. She’s my problem.”


“I know Tanya but she’s like family to me. I won’t mind canceling for us both to help you with your sister.”


“You’re the best you know that right.”


“I know,” I giggled. She left and I was alone until it was time to go out which wasn’t for a few hours so I decided to go to the living room and sit on the couch.


I was watching Supernatural on Netflix waiting to hear from Tanya before leaving to meet with our friends at the club when I got a text. I figured it was her but when I unlocked my phone it was from Matt.


“This is the most bored I’ve ever been.”


“What are you doing?”


“I’m stuck on the bus with the guys on our way to the next show. Johnny and Zacky are playing X-Box.”


“And Syn?”


“He’s busy doing something.”


“Why aren’t you joining the guys?”


“Because I felt like talking to you.”




“What are you doing right now?”


“Catching up on some shows while I wait for Tawny to come back from her sister’s so we can go out.”


“Where are you going?”


“We’re just gonna go to the club with some of the girls so I don’t know how long I can talk.”


“Why don’t you cancel your plans and we can talk all night.”

“Like old times.”


By now I wasn’t even paying any attention to the TV I was 100% glued to my phone talking to him and heavily contemplating calling and telling the girls I wasn’t feeling well but this was one of those I need to get out or I’ll regret not going even if it means not getting to talk to my boyfriend who I won’t get to see for 4 months. Nights like this don’t happen all that often Meanwhile there will be plenty of times he and I will get to talk.


“It’s very tempting but I think I’ll go out with the girls tonight because I don’t know the next time we’ll all have the time to do this again but until then I’m all yours.”


“How long do I have?”


“1 hour. Clocks tickin’ Shadows.”


We continued to talk for about an hour and then it was time for me to go until Shannon texted me and said that she was working the rest of the night.


“That’s was okay there’s still Mickie and Ashley.” But then Mickie canceled because her baby was sick and she needed to stay home and take care of him and Ashley said that she wasn’t feeling good and she had work early in the morning. I decided to text Tanya and let her know that our plans have been canceled so if she wanted or needed to stay with Jessica she could. I would stay home and watch TV while talking to Matt all night.


“Aw man. I know how excited you were to go out with the girls and have a little fun but at least Matt’s free to talk. I’m stuck here with Jess until tomorrow. I’ll fill you in when I get home.”


“Guess what?” I texted Matt.


“What’s that?”


“I’m free for the rest of the night. Everyone canceled.”


“What about Tanya?”


“She’s gonna spend the night over at her sister’s. She said she would tell me what’s going on tomorrow.”


“So you’re home alone?”


“Yes? Why do you ask?” Seconds after sending that text I get a phone call from him.


“Look outside.”




“Just look outside.” I walked over to the window. “Don’t the stars look bright tonight?” I moved the curtains and looked up.


“They look beautiful.”


“Like you,” I grinned. My eyes wandered to notice a dark silhouette at the end of my driveway. “Babe?” he asked. “You still there,”


“Matt there’s somebody parked outside the house.”


“Were you expecting anyone?”


“No. I’m a little freaked.”


“It’s probably just the neighbors.” I looked closer.


“You’re right. It was her boyfriend.”


“See?” I walked back to the couch.


“What are the guys doing right now?”


“I stopped listening awhile ago but they might be asleep.” Just then the doorbell rang. “Who is that?” he asked.


“I don’t know but I’m not answering.” Then it rang again.


“Maybe you should answer that.”


“I don’t want to get up. Whoever it is can come back in the morning.” I continued. This time it was almost like the person was leaning on the button because they rang it a million times.


“Jesus, what do you want?” I shouted throwing the door open to reveal Matt smiling ear-to-ear. “You son of a-“ He cut me off by hugging me. I wrapped my arms around him not wanting to let go. “I thought you were on your way to the next show?”


“I am, we’re headed to Vegas but I wanted to stop and see my beautiful loving girlfriend.” He looked down at me as our height difference showed very clearly. “Now bring those lips in,” he said leaning down as I stepped on my toes giggling at him. He pecked my lips and I felt his beard brush against my skin, then he leaned low enough to scoop me up just under my butt holding me in the air above him, this time I leaned down and pressed my lips to his kissing him passionately, our mouths moving in sync with each other. He bit and sucked on my bottom lip a little to tease me. When we finally broke the kiss we were both out of breath but kept eye contact.


“I love you.” I kissed him again.


“I really missed you.” He replied kissing me, again. “I love you.” He continued to peck my lips and my neck. “What do you say to joining me and the guys on tour for a few months?”




“I know it would be your first time but I can’t be away from you for too long. I’m crazy for you.”


“What about Tanya? She would be here all by herself?”


“Brian’s already talked to her and she’s coming with, that just leaves you.”


“What about our home?”


“Home is in your arms.” I smiled and stepped on his feet for a little boost in height. He held on to my waist for support and pulled me closer to kiss me.


“Home is in your arms,” I repeated before our lips made contact.
