It was about 10 minutes before Sleeping with Sirens went on stage. Nikki and I were back stage sitting in a room with the guys as they warmed up. Kellin was exercising his vocal cords and singing ridiculous songs with such range in octaves. I was trying not to laugh. We were also drinking.
Justin stood in front of me fingering chords on the bass. while I sat on the arm of the couch sticking my tong out at him every now and then.
Nikki had run off with Jaime a few minutes ago. I was getting suspicious something was going on that I should be aware of. I could tell because I had caught them in the tour bus snickering about something. Oh well , she'll tell me.
“You guys are on in 3” the venue manager said popping hishead in the room.
The guys moved over to the stairs and waited. They were anxious. Not one of them could stand still. It was like this at ever show. Like watching a bunch of energizer bunnies.
“Wheres, Nikki?” Kellin asked me. I just shrugged.
“Here I am!!” Nikki came running over and jumping into kellins arms. They were so cute together. He looked at her like she was a queen. He treated her like one too. Which was good or I would of kicked his ass.
“Babe, am I getting a good luck kiss?” Justin pulled me in closer making my eyes peel away from the couple. I smiked. He was truly gorgeous. I had never dated a guy that treated me good since Mike. Actually I barely dated, I couldn’t. Mike broke me. We may of faught a lot but there something about him that pulled me in. I was in love and so was he, I think it was just too much we were afraid to loose the other. The night I caught him cheating, was the night I had my heart shattered into a million pieces. Pieces I still hadn’t all found yet. As much as I convinced Nikki and everyone else I was over with him and didn’t care, I still cared. It still hurt. But I had Justin. Mike was my past. I wish we could just be friends.
“Babe? I have to go” I hadn’t noticed I was staring at Justin the whole time. He was looking at me as if to say , are you alright. I grinned pulled him in for a long kiss.
He pulled away giving me a wink then turning to run up to the stage.
“soooo are you going to tell me whats up?” turning my attention to Nikki. Who stood at the end of the stairs looking up as the guys left. She turned to me giving me an evil grin.
I didn’t like the look of this.
The guys from pierce the veil now stood with us on side stage , waiting impatiently.
Nikki held a walkie talkie and every now and then spoke into it. I could barley hear anything with all the screaming fans.
Kellin had finished a song and was taking a mini water break as the others kept the music going.
Returning to the mic Kellin continured to talk to the crowd, as he introduced the next song. Fire
Nikki looked up at all of us and just smiled.
It was show time …
