She continues to pack her things. "Kaylei-"

"Shawn I can't look at you right now! I can't. I can't believe you would do something like this to me, and you have lost all my trust. So I'm sorry but no. I'm leaving and I'm not going to give you a chance to explain yourself because frankly, I couldn't fucking care less. This ones on you." She looks at me with pain in her eyes and walks out the door.

I don't bother following her as I know once she makes up her mind there is no changing it. Brian comes back in, "Dude. You seriously fucked that one up."

"I know." I sit down on the edge of the bed and run my hands through my hair.

"So are you going to go after her?"

"She won't change her mind." I say feeling defeated.

I spend the rest of the day sleeping and feeling horrible. I've thrown up a few times I'm so hungover and I feel guilty.

Our flight leaves to Denmark tonight so I pack up my stuff and go to the car where I'm meeting Brian.

We arrive in Skanderborg and I go to sleep as soon as we get to our hotel.

The next morning I wake up and text Kayleigh. I am so sorry. The read notification shows up but no reply. I drag myself out of bed and find Brian in the kitchen.

"Heard anything from Kay?"

"Radio silence."

"I'm sure she'll come around, just gotta focus on tonight's show." Brian says.

I don't want to disappoint the fans but I really don't know how I'm supposed to do a show tonight.

We arrive at the festival and I stay in my dressing room up until 30 minutes before the show when I go to get warmed up. My hearts just not in it tonight and everyone around me can tell.

Somebody knocks on the door with a huge parcel for me. "Shawn Mendes?" They ask. I nod and sign for it and then take it into the dressing room. I haven't ordered anything, so it's probably from fans or something.

I open it to see a Fender guitar case. This is unusual for fans to get so it can't be from them. I see a note attached to part of the case with my name written in cursive. I recognize the handwriting as Kayleigh's and feel a pit in my stomach.

I open the letter and see more of her writing:

My Shawn,
Happy 20th love. I'm not good at writing down my feelings like you are so I'm going to keep this short and sweet. The past few months with you have been amazing and you are amazing. Can't wait to see what else is in store for us❤️
Love,
Kay
P.S. Hope you love the gift, it just made me happy to see it and I know it will make you happy too.

A tear falls down my cheek and I set the note aside. I open up the case and am amazed by what is inside. I see a beautiful guitar with flowers on it that is inspired by my album cover. She knows me so well and couldn't have gotten me something betters. I know she's the one for me. I know it.

"Hey Shawn?" I hear from the hallway, and Andrew comes in and pulls me aside. "Hey, I don't know what is going on. Brian mentioned something about Kayleigh, but you kind of need to snap out of it. This is the job, performing when you want to do it but also when you don't. So let's turn things around here and get out there and rock it. Okay?"

I nod my head and put my ear buds back in. The band walks out and I grab my guitar and sling it over my shoulder. "What's up Denmark!" I yell as I run onstage.

I've done my three opening songs and am halfway through "Fallin All in You." when I suddenly stop.

"I'm really sorry guys, but I've got something to do and I need to do it really bad. I'm so sorry, I don't want to disappoint you all. But I've disappointed somebody I really love, and I need to go set that straight. So I'm so sorry, but I have to leave."

The band looks at me with confusion and I take off my guitar and run on stage. "Andrew you need to book me a flight home right now." I yell to him as I'm running to my dressing room to get my things.

"Shawn get back on that stage." He yells at me down the hallway chasing me.

I don't listen to him and continue to grab my stuff. "Shawn what the hell are you thinking?"

"She's the one Andrew. She's the one and I messed up when I was with that girl, and I messed up not going after her. So I'm going to find her and beg for her forgiveness. Because you don't let the one go."

Andrew sighs, "the media is going to have a fit."

"Tell everyone I'm sorry, did you book that flight?"

"I'll send you the itinerary."

I give him a hug and sprint out to the car. I manage to make my flight in time and and within two hours of getting off the stage I'm flying back home to the girl I love, in hopes that she still loves me.
