"NO~! I SAID I DIDN'T WANNA GOOO~!" I whined clawing at my mattress. I really hated being woken up and dragged out of a nice warm bed. Alfred, my best yet most annoying friend, pulled on my ankles. "HAHA~! C'MON~! IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY~! LIGHTEN UP~!" he laughed managing to drag me onto the cold floor. He let my legs go, letting them hit the ground, hard. I turned over and sat myself up. "Thanks for the birthday beats bro." I groaned flipping my (h/l) (h/c) hair from my eyes and hopping up on my feet. "Get dressed and let's go! I gotta surprise for you~!" He laughed walking out. I sighed. 'Great…'
"So Whattya have planned for me this year? Drunk fest? Surprise water balloon fight?" I mumbled walking through the dark streets. I felt stares at me. Yup. Black Veil Brides T-shirt, ripped red jeans and bright green converse. It wasn't common in the UK for some odd reason, but I shook it off. Alfred laughed.
"We're going to a concert." he laughed. I became a little excited. "Really? What band?!" I asked with merry hope in my eyes. He looked down at me. "A friend of mine has this awesome band…uh…I forgot, I think it was the UK Boys or something." he said looking up in wonder. I sighed. "So a boy band?" I muttered. He laughed and whacked my back in his amusement. "HAHAHAH~! No not really, but their popularity sure takes the title!" he chuckled walking up to a bouncer.
The man looked down at me. "ID please." he grunted. I sighed and pulled out my wallet showing him my ID. He nodded. "Alright, tickets?" he asked. Alfred held up two tickets. The bounder nodded and stepped aside. "Here ya go." he said opening the door. Already could I hear girls screaming and loud music playing. I rolled my eyes as I entered behind the American.
We brushed passed the crowd of rowdy girls and some with their boyfriends that sat at the bar. I pushed passed a couple of chatty, squeaky girls and made my way to the bar. "Hi there, what would you like?" asked the man. I sighed. "One Morison." I said with a bored look. He nodded and pulled out an ice cold one and slid it to me. I took a big swing from it sighing in relief.
Alfred laughed. "Try not to get plastered tonight!" he said patting my head. I rolled my eyes. "It's my birthday, I'll drop on my ass drunk if I want to." I chuckled. I finished off the last of the beer and threw it out. I found myself drumming my fingers to the rhythm of the bands music. Meh, t'was pretty good. The lead singer with the bass was really good, also rather hot in my opinion.
Most of the night, I spent by the bar chatting with the bartender. Found out his name was Leon, some guy from Hong-Kong. Was good to know I have a new friend in this town.
"Yo! _____, let's go!" Alfred called grabbing my wrist dragging me from the club. I looked at him confused. "Where to now?" I asked annoyed. He threw me into the cab car and sat next to me. "We're going to meet my bud!" he laughed. I sighed. "Yeah whatever."
We arrived at the hotel, needless to say it was the grand spanky-ist, buffed and polished hotel I've been to. Then again, we are visiting a "rock star".
I walked around with Alfred, fearing that he had no idea where we were, then he stopped and knocked on a door. "Who is it?" called a voice, that had my favorite accent, yup, British. "Dude! It's me! Open up!" Alfred called laughing. The door swung open. There he was. The lead singer guy. He looked at Alfred then at me. "Well, who's this?" he asked taking my hand and kissing it. I rolled my eyes with a smirk only half heartedly giving my thanks.
Alfred pulled me into a head lock. "Bro! This was that chick that I had a thing for but shot me down and we're like, now like, cousins!" he laughed. I groaned and pulled myself from his grasp. "Uhm, 'that chick' has a name you know, asshole." I laughed hitting Alfred's arm with an iron punch that I was utmost famous for. Alfred whined as he rubbed the bruise. "Arthur, this is ____, ____ this is Arthur." he said. I smiled at him. "Pleasure to meet you." He chuckled. "As of you, love."
God, did I love British accents.
What was I thinking?! I just met him!
Maybe I could get to know him a little more…?
