"Good job ladies." My tour manager said as we walked off stage covered in sweat.
I pulled the hood of my sleeveless cloak off and dabbed the sweat from my head with a towel.
"You all have one hour before the signing at our tent so hurry up." James the manager said.
"Alright." I replied as I threw the towel over my shoulder.
I walked past a group of males as I headed towards the stage steps.
"Hey, are you Ashton Michaels?" One of them asked.
"Who's asking?" I replied.
"Devin Sola, I'm the bassist from Motionless in White." He said.
"Oh, nice to meet you. Yea I'm Ash." I smiled as I shook his hand.
"Could I possibly talk to you after I'm done playing?" He asked.
"Of course, just look for the Dark Memories bus. It has a giant rose painted on the door." I replied.
"No problem, see you later Devin." I said then quickly walked off to my bus.
I stood up from the plastic chair and stretched.
"Oh god my back." Tyler, the singer, said.
I chuckled as I grabbed my pen. I walked towards the bus and saw Devin standing outside.
"Hey Devin." I said as I approached him.
"Hey Ash." He replied.
"Did Landon not let you on?" I asked.
"No." He replied.
I opened the bus door and let him step on. I went to follow him but a voice stopped me in my tracks.
"Hey! I told you no!" Landon yelled as he tried to grab Devin.
"Hey! Calm down. He's cool." I replied.
Landon walked off while shaking his head.
"Sorry about that." I said as I sat down.
"It's no problem. I was going to ask if you did tattoos like I've been hearing." He replied.
"Yup." I answered.
"I lost a bet and have to get something random tattooed on my leg and I was hoping you'd do it." He said.
"Oh no problem." I replied and stood up to get my tattoo machine.
I returned back to the room to see him sitting on the couch.
"Comfy?" I asked.
"Yup." He replied.
"So you have no choice in what I will tattoo on you?" I asked.
"Yea, just please don't do anything stupid." He answered.
"Oh of course not." I replied as I thought of what I would be tattooing.
He propped his leg up and pulled his pants leg up.
"I've already shaved so you don't have to." He said.
"Thank you, that is much appreciated." I replied as I cleaned the small machine.
"Mind if I free hand?" I asked.
"Nope." He replied.
He nodded in reply and I started the tattoo.
Two hours later, I found myself finishing the tattoo on his shin and my band mates surrounding me as I did so.
"I don't know how you do it Ash." Conner, the drummer, said.
I smiled and wiped the extra ink from Devin's leg.
"Go easy on yourself, there is a full sized mirror on the back of that door." I said then pointed at an opened door.
I stood up then put my hand out for him to take. He took it and I pulled him up. He walked over to the mirror as I started cleaning my kit.
"This is amazing." Devin said as he looked at Sleepy Hollow tattoo I had done.
"Where do you learn this?" He asked as I started wrapping his leg up.
"I started art back in elementary school and I've been doing this ever since." I replied.
"What do I owe you?" He asked as I stood up.
I thought for a moment.
"A date." I answered.
His eyes went wide before he nodded with a smile.
