We were in L.A and I was standing outside a fancy sushi restaurant where Danny said to meet. I was wearing my black tights with my red Toms and Brandy Melville bralette with a tank. I left my hair long and wavy and my make up light. I was not letting him think I would get all dressed up for him, even thought It took me 2 hours of staring at my luggage and the help of my friends to pick out the perfect outfit.
I tapped my foot impatiently and raised my sunglasses to check the time on my phone.
“Late as always” I said out loud to myself.
“Ah love, I'm a rock star it comes with the package” Danny spoke scaring the crap out of me. I had no idea he was standing there. I took a deep breath and turned to face him.
“Well if you plan on meeting someone. you show up at the time you gave.”
He backed away and raised his hands up in defence.
“Sorry babe. I couldn’t find a parking spot. Honestly”
I sighed rolling my eyes behind my glasses.
“Lets go eat" I snapped
He nodded and went over to grab the door for me.
I gave him a small thanks and went in. Danny told the host his name and we both followed him through the restaurant and out to the back patio.
We both sat down and thanked the host when he handed us our menus as a waiter came by and poured green tea into our cups.
It was an awkward silence and I was glad we had two menus blocking out faces. Danny flipped through the pages swiftly. I knew he wasn’t concentrating either.
“How have you been Dan?” deciding to take action. I lowered my menu enough to meet his blue orbs across from me. He had taken off his sunglasses when we sat down, knowing how much it bothered me when i couldnt see someones eyes when talking to them.
“Ive been good, the guys are good too. Just touring really”
I nodded and we went back to looking at our menus.
10 minutes later the waiter came to our rescues. We still hadn’t said much except for “What are you thinking of getting?” followed by an “I don't know yet”
We placed our order and the waiter bowed his head and walked away quickly, he probably felt how awkward it was too.
Now we were left to talk.
I looked around sipping my tea as Danny fiddled with his chop sticks.
“So” he started. I looked over to him.
Wow he was nervous. Danny had been ripping apart his napkin and making tiny balls out of the pieces of paper.
“You want to know if you can see him?” I spoke.
He stopped and looked up at me.
“You can see him. But, we cant drop this all on him at once.”
Danny's face lite up , I had never seen him so happy since we started dating , before the drugs, before the drinking.
“Thank you Nikki, I.. you don’t know how happy I am to hear that”
“What made you want to see him? You never wanted us before”
His face fell a bit making my stomach twist slightly.
“I did, trust me when I say that I did. I just. The music was my life and I wasn’t ready to step down, to take on more responsibility. Nikki you know I was in a bad place”
I nodded remembering exactly where we were at that point in life.
“You didn’t have to kick us out”
He rubbed his face with his hand and let is slid down.
“Im really sorry, from the bottom of my heart im sorry for what I did to you.”
“You kicked me out, left me on the street” I could start to feel tears surface.I really couldn’t be here anymore. I got up from the table and ran inside. I needed to find the bathroom or better yet. The front door.
The bus stopped. Thank god we were here. The guys and I all ran out of the bus over joyed to be outside.
“Air, I have clean air!” Justin yelled.
“Sweet baby Jesus!” Jesse screamed as he ran around the bus
We all laughed. It was always exciting when we could finally stretch out legs and not be stuck on a moving bus no matter how long the trip was.
My eyes lingered away from the guys and over to the Ptv bus. They had arrived earlier then us and Nikki had said she was going out with Vicky and Mike for a bit. Sadly I really didn’t believe it but I told her to have fun I also found it odd the Mike and vicky were hanging together now but Justin seemed okay with it.
“guys, im going to go venture.”
“Ill come with!” Justin shouted and jogged over to catch up.
"Where are we headed? Foood?”
My stomach growled and I nodded.
We were walking around town until we decided to stop at a pub for a drink and some food. We sat on the patio as we waited for our order to arrive.
"Hey, Kell. Don’t make it obvious but turn around?” he was looking behind me with his sun glasses raised and his face scrunched up. I looked back behind me and almost dropped my beer.
ohhhhhhh snapp!!! What do you think they saww??? :O
