New Orleans is amazing. The people, the lights, the noise that seems to never end. I've always wanted to visit Bourbon Street, and I wasn't about to miss out on this chance. I still had a couple hours before the show, so why not do a little sight-seeing?
The show tonight is actually really important. Tonight was the night we were going to give the people of New Orleans what they deserve. They lost so much- jobs, money, houses- and we wanted to help them out. Now, it was no coincidence that all these people were coming tonight, the one thing they all have in common was their insurance-Tressler Insurance. After a little bit of work, I was able to hack into Arthur's bank account with the help of Danny attempting to guess Arthur's past. Tonight was going to be a huge step in our career, and the fact that we really could get arrested worried me a bit.
"Hey you wanna go explore before the show?" Henley walked in to my hotel room asking.
"Yeah lemme get my shoes on." I replied going over to sit down. "You ready for tonight?" I asked her while putting on my ankle wedge boots.
"Absolutely." She responded confidently. "This is something long overdue. Artie has no idea how much pain he has caused these people. He had the money to help them when they needed it and he chose to buy a yacht."
"C'mon let's go shop." I said changing the subject. She was getting annoyed just thinking about it, and the last thing I wanted was a pissed off ginger.
Her eyes lit up at the word 'shop' and I regretted it immediately. Not sure if I've mentioned it before, but Henley is pretty much a professional shopper. She has to go into EVERY store, and don't even get me started on how much time she spends trying stuff on. I don't blame her though, her wardrobe is amazing.
-FF to the show-
"My hands are shaking. Why are my hands shaking? Henley make my hands stop shaking!" For some reason I'm just really nervous about tonight. Everything has to go exactly as planned tonight, if it doesn't...well I don't want to think about that because it can't not go right.
"Alyssa!" Henley shouted grabbing my shoulders, "Calm the hell down. Seriously you're going to give yourself a heart attack. And if you do that who will do all our technicall hacky stuff?" She asked while setting up her mic.
"Well I'm pretty sure I would be able to do that just as well" Danny's voice came from behind me.
"Oh I'm sure you would." Henley retorted walking past me towards him.
"What's that supposed to mean?" He asked innocently.
"Nothing. Just that I'm pretty sure you don't know anything about computers." She said snarkily.
"Well that right there is a lie. I practically taught her everything she knows."
"Really? Because I'm pretty sure that right there is a lie." She said using his words.
"Is this really about computers Hen? Is that why you're acting like this?" He asked stepping closer to her.
"I don't know what you're talking about." She said taking a small step fowards.
"I'm pretty sure you do." He said getting a little bit closer so that their noses were practically touching.
"If you drop me tonight, you are so dead." She said after a few seconds before turning on her heel and walking away.
"She still wants me." Danny chuckled to himself before walking away, leaving me standing there extremely confused.
"What...what just happened?" I asked myself. I know they had a thing in the past whether they like to admit it or not, but I'm pretty sure they still have feelings for each other.
"Who are you talking to?" Someone asked softly in my ear sending a shiver down my spine.
"You ok there?" He asked again. I turned around and standing there was, you guessed it, Merritt.
"Yeah I'm fine. Just spaced out a little." I said coming back to reality.
"We're on in 10. Might wanna go check on lover boy. You were out shopping today with Ms. I'm Not In Love With Danny, so he hasn't seen you at all." He said cheekily.
"Where is he?" Craving his touch all of the sudden.
"In the back room. I'd say you have a few minutes to get a good make out session in." He said smirking, "Maybe more"
"Oh my gosh stop." I said hitting him on the arm and trying to hide the blush crawling onto my cheeks.
"I'll see you later." I said walking towards the back of the building.
After a few minutes I finally reached the room Merrittt said Jack was in and knocked.
"Come in" I heard from the inside.
"Hey" I said walking in and closing the door behind me.
"Lyssa hey" He said smiling as he got up from where he was sitting and came over to give me a hug. He's a good 6 inches taller than me so he picked me up off the floor a little bit.
"I missed you." He whispered into my hair.
"It's only been a day since I last saw you." I said giggling.
"Yeah, but Henley stole you for the day so what was I supposed to do?" He said putting me back on my feet but still holding onto my waist.
"You could've come with us you know."
"Hm let's see, go shopping with someone as crazy as Henley?" He asked sarcastically while tapping his chin. "I think I'll take a pass on that."
"However now that I have you here," He smirked down at me. We were about to kiss when,
*Knock knock* "Wilder! Come on! You're on." One of the stage people yelled through the door.
"Dammit." He said dropping his head and sighing.
"Come on Wilder. Let's go get our magic on." I said taking his hand.
"You owe me later on." He said looking at me smirking.
"If we are able to successfully pull this off then maybe, just maybe, it'll be a bit more." I said biting my lip with a sudden burst of confidence.
"Wha..." He looked at me shocked with wide eyes clearly not expecting me to say that since between us, he's definitely the flirt, and I can't say anything like that without blushing or stuttering.
"Let's go." I said giggling while opening the door and walking out. A few seconds later I heard his feet catching up to me.
"I'm gonna hold you to that, I hope you realize that." He said snaking his arm around my waist and whispering into my ear
"Good." I said cheekily smiling up at him.
"There you guys are!" Danny exclaimed walking up to us with Henley and Merritt walking behind him.
"Positions you guys." He said looking at us. "It's showtime."
