It was 4:30 PM when i went over Jane's house. I didn't even want to go to this stupid concert. Well, I guess I was kind of excited. I've only just turned 18 and I've never been to a concert before. But the only problem is that I hate the type of music Jane likes and she picked the type of music she likes for this concert which is actually my birthday present from her to me. She gave me Chris Brown tickets. I don't even like Chris Brown! I think this is more for Jane than it is for me.
"Oh hi, sweetie. Come on in." Jane's mom said to me as she welcomed me. "Jane's just upstairs in her room getting ready." As I walked up the stairs I could hear someone elses voice. I knew whose it was as soon as i heard it. It was Phoenix, Jane's boyfriend. They've been together for about 9 months. I don't think I can handle being them together anymore seeing as I've liked Phoenix since the day we met. I haven't had the courage to tell anyone about it. Especially Jane, what would she say if she found out that I've liked Phoenix for ages now? It's actually crushing me inside seeing them together everyday and not being able to do anything about it.
Jane was very tall for a girl, she had dark brown, almost black hair styled into a pixie cut, she also had really immense brown eyes, really dark, olive skin and perfect features. Phoenix was even taller than Jane, deep blue eyes, blonde hair, perfect teeth. Me on the other hand, I'm extremely short for my age, blue eyes, blonde hair, relatively straight teeth and I'm super pale. Mmm, yeah, because that's what every guy wants.
"Oh my god, Adele! I'm so excited! I can't believe we're going to see Chris Brown live in a couple of hours! I'm so glad that you picked me to come with you!" Jane said as she ran over and hugged me. I hugged her back. I waved to Phoenix and smiled as he waved back. My heart fluttered. I went and sat down on her bed and Jane sat on Phoenix's lap. "Baby, I love you." He said. "I love you, too." She replied. When Jane and Phoenix kiss each other its like a washing machine in their mouths. You can just hear it. God it's awful.
I was wearing my light blue jeans, a beatles top, scarf, gloves, 2 really thick jackets, 4 pairs of wool socks and a pair of converses. Jane was at the complete opposite end of the Canadian winter fashion line. She had a fluro pink mini skirt on, a black t-shirt that said "I love Chris Brown" on it, a fur coat and a pair of really high fluro orange high heels. Blegh. "You're really wearing that? You're going to be freezing! Haven't you heard? It's the middle of winter in Canada at the moment." I said sarcastically to her. "Hell yes I am! It's true after all. I don't care, it's worth it." She said. Jane opened her front door and got blasted with a huge gust of freezing air.
The walk to the arena was about 2 minutes but the concert didnt start till about 5:30. That was long enough for Jane to freeze her ass off and to have Phoenix carry here the rest of the way with his jacket over her legs. She was such a bitch to him. We all walked up to the doors of the arena, got our tickets checked and then walked in. Inside the arena lobby was sheer madness. Jesus Christ, there were about 456123456789654345675434567 people in there at a time. Everyone was lining up to buy Chris Brown merch. I just wanted to get in and out of this concert as fast as i could.
- Later that evening -
"Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!" People sung along to Chris Brown singing his main song of the night. "Oi, Jane. I'm just going outside for a bit because I can't really breath properly. I might not see you again. If I don't, I love you and thanks for a great night." I shouted over the music. "Okay, bye, have fun on your birthday." She replied, not even remotely interested. Stupid bitch. All she thinks about is her and Phoenix.
I walked out the back door of the arena and went and sat outside. It was a stupid thing to do because it completely slipped my mind that it was the middle of winter and the door was an automatic lock. I slid down a large square shaped pole out the back of the venue and started to cry. I don't even know why. Maybe because Jane cared more about her boyfriend and Chris Brown than she did me. Maybe because I haven't had a boyfriend and I'm 18 and my "bestfriend" is going out with the person i like. Maybe because this is the most horrible birthday I've ever had. I don't know why but it's ridiculous what ever the reason is.
By now, it was snowing really badly and from the time i got out of the arena to now the temperature had dropped so i was shaking and i had snow all through my hair. Ice had also developed on my eyelashes. I saw a van pull up and a guy got out. I couldn't see his face but it looked like he was checking for something. He turned around to say something to the person driving the van but I caught his eye. "Fuck, o-oh my god I'm so s-s-sorry, I'll g-go, okay, b-bye." I said as got up rapidly and wiped my eyes. "Wait, where are you going? And why are you crying?" He asked me while I ran away. I slipped in a pile of snow making me fall over. He ran over and helped me up. I couldn't see who it was until I wiped my eyes. It was Alex Gaskarth.
At this point in time I was shaking to an extreme and I literally couldn't stop crying. "We need to get you inside." He said quietly. "You're freezing. Come on, I'll put you in our car." Alex picked me up and carried me back to where the guy driving had parked it. 5 people kept coming back out to bring in instruments. One of them saw me and gave me the weirdest look. Now, let me tell you something about Alex Gaskarth, or All Time Low in general. They are the most amazing band I have ever heard, they have saved me so many times, they're all funny as fuck and they've all been blessed with a thing called being hot. "W-why did you come over t-to me?" I asked Alex quietly. "Well, for one thing you're outside in a Canadian winter which is ridiculous, and 2 you were crying and then i startled you and you slipped over so i was being a gentlemen and I came and helped you. Are they good enough reasons?" He said laughing. I managed to laugh a little. "Oh, and I didn't catch your name." He said. "Adele, my names Adele." I replied happily. "Okay, Adele, well, my names Al" "Alex Gaskarth. Yes, I know who you are. I love all time low." We both smiled.
"Oh my god, I feel like I've hit my head so hard. Can you check if theres a bump there, please?" I said, my voice shaky. "Fuck, there's a huge lump there. I'll be back in a minute, I'll go and get you some ice." He said as he opened the back doors of the van. "No, it's alright, I'll get it, you could get mobbed. The concert finishes in 5 minutes anyway so just imagine if there's All Time Low fans in there." I replied as I sat up. "I'll be fine, be back soon. Rest your head." Alex said as he hopped out of the van into the storm.
