He's So Aggravating, But I Think I Like Him (Max Green)

They're late.

The stupid band that we were supposed to be touring with is TWO hours late.

"Max, calm down, it's probably traffic or something," Monte said, trying to calm me down.

"Well, this is bullshit," I grumbled, mostly to myself.

We were supposed to be touring with some band called Insomniac Outcasts. I've seen some videos of their interviews and, personally, I don't like them.

I mean, the singer seems okay, but I don't like the drummer or lead guitarist's personallities. From the videos I've seen of them, the drummer is really quiet and closed off. The lead guitarist seems arrogant and stuck up.

Just then, a large tour bus arrived with "Insomniac Outcast" printed in bright, bold letters printed on the side. Monte and I shared a glance, before walking up to the door. Monte knocked, and a guy that looked about twenty four answered.

He had the typical rock star look. Black hair, brown eyes, lots of tattoos. He was tall, skinny, and considerably attractive.

"What?" He asked, looking tired and irate with us for knocking.

"Hi, I'm Monte, that's Max," Monte said, pointing to me.

"I'm Chris," he said back, shaking both of our hands quickly.

"Why were you two hours late?" I asked, sounding way more hostile than I meant.

"We got a late start. Sorry,"  he said, before he walked off the bus and toward who I guessed was their manager. Two more guys walked out shortly after Chris, then a girl with dark brown hair and green/gray eyes.

"Sup," she said, nodding her head at us, then she went toward the others.

A few minutes later, she went back inside the bus, but I could hear what she was saying, since the door was still open.

"Mandy, get up," the woman said. Then there was some groaning.

"Get up," she tried again. Still nothing.

"Get up!" She yelled. Then I heard what sounded like a smack.

"Fine!" The girl I guessed was Mandy said, sounding angry at the other woman for disturbing her nap. The first girl walked out of the bus, followed by a very livid looking Mandy.

It doesn't even look like she took the time to look mildly presentable.

Then I realized who all the band mates were. Chris was the singer, one of the guys, the one with brown hair and bright green eyes was Mike, he was the bassist. The other guy was Corey, the rhythm guitarist. The girl with dark brown hair was Maddie, she was the drummer. And Mandy was the blonde, bitchy lead guitarist! I felt so stupid for only now remembering. They were all gathered around their manager, talking about, whatever they talk about.

"Quit staring at them," Craig, our singer said as he walked out of our own tour bus.

"I just remembered which one was which," I said.

"I've listened to some of their music, it's not bad. It's kinda catchy. It's a little violent sometimes, but I like them," Craig said, scanning over the group.

"I don't," I said, crossing my arms over my chest.


Our manager just told us what time we would be playing. Maddie and I were walking back toward the bus to wait on our show time.

We were touring with Escape the Fate, and a few other bands I've never heard of. I like Escape the Fate sound, but I don't really care for any of the bandmates, except for Monte. It might be just because we are both guitarists, but he seems nice.

I'd never really paid attention to Robert. Craig was okay. Max seemed like a dick. He's way too cocky for my taste, but he's pretty easy on the eyes, I will admit.

I don't like him, but since I've never met him, I'm willing to give him a chance, I could be wrong about him.

"What are you thinking about?" Maddie asked me, snapping me out of my daze.

"Huh? Nothing," I lied quickly.

"Liar, but I'm not gonna make you tell me, because I know you won't," Maddie said grumpily.

True. I'm stubborn. I never do what I'm told unless I want to. I'm so outspoken, it gets me in trouble sometimes.

It's always funny to me though. The way people freak out when I do or don't do something. I do what I'm told just enough to keep me in the band.

If I was kicked out, I would have to go back to my parents' house, and I really don't want that.

I told Maddie I was going to discuss setup with Chris, and I left the bus in search of him. While I was walking and thinking, I wasn't paying attention to where I was going until I bumped into someone and we both fell back on our asses.

"Watch where the fuck you're going," the person I bumped into said. As it turned out, I ran into Max Green from Escape the Fate.

"I wasn't paying attention, sorry," I muttered, trying not to sound bitchy as I stood up from the ground.

"Yeah. I know," He dead-panned in response, rolling his eyes at me while also getting up.

What was his problem?

"You're just as guilty, if you saw I wasn't watching where I was going, you could have moved," I snarled. I was getting mad. I get ill-tempered over things like this.

"Whatever," he growled, then left.

I laughed. He knew I was right. He turned around and flipped me off. Which made me laugh harder. He was mad, but I didn't care. He should really watch where he's going.
