What If I Can't Forget You? (Tony Perry)
I'm so so so so so so sorry guys. I know I haven't updated since, I think, January. I've been revising for my GCSE exams (only 4 left! Woohoo!! :D), and my laptop broke and I only had my phone and I can't write on that. But now I've moved house and we got (instead of a dongle) wireless internet. So I update from my iPad now instead.
But I hope you guys forgive me, I'll be updating more often now because I've almost finished school. Just 2 weeks left. :D
"The guy Erin was sleeping with was my boyfriend." Oh...
My eyes became watery at the mention of Erin, and I felt really sorry for this girl. What a shame.
A tear fell from my eye and I quickly wiped it away while looking down at the slightly shaking girl before me. I noticed the tears falling silently from her eyes. Reaching my hand forward, I lifted her head with my hand and wiped away the tears, before pulling her into a hug and whispering into her ear.
"Shh, it's okay, it doesn't matter, a pretty girl like you will find someone better." She looked up and smiled at me.
"Now, lets look at these photos!" I announced with as much enthusiasm as I could muster right now. She smiled a breathtaking smile and turned around to where her portfolios were.
Wow. Her photos really were somthing else! How old was she? 24? Yeah. She's an amazing photographer. Just as good as Adam!
"Wow, Bridie! These are incredible! I think it's fair to say, provided everyone agrees with me, which they will, that you can do our photography if you'd like?" Jaime announced almost too enthusiastically.
"It would be an honour, thank you so much!" Bridie replied humbly.
I can't believe this! I get to tour with one of my favourite bands! What an opportunity! "You'll screw it up" my subconscious snarled. I ignored the thought and continued to smile my first genuine smile since I caught- oh no. I can't cry again!
"Do you guys have a bathroom?" I spoke quickly- rushed almost.
"Yeah, just down there and there's a door on your right; can't miss it." Vic spoke sweetly.
"Thanks." And with that I ran to the small bathroom to sort my mess of a face that was about to get worse. I stared at the puffy-eyed girl staring back at me in the mirror.
"How did I get like this? Why do I let people close to me. They all hurt me in the end." I spoke to myself I'm the mirror. "I won't let anyone hurt me any more. I'm done with all this shit." I proceeded to fix my hair and makeup quickly so the guys didn't wonder where I was. I need to pull myself together. This is pathetic. I need to get over Sam. I've cried too many tears over him. Certain lyrics come to mind from Fall Out Boy, "I've cried tears you'll never see, so fuck you, you can go cry me an ocean and leave me be." I walked back out to where the guys were talking. I couldn't hear what they were discussing, they were talking in rather hushed voices. Mike was the first to notice me and gave me a warm, friendly smile. All the guys turned around and faced me; all smiling.
"Welcome to the Pierce the Veil crew," Vic spoke. "Hope you enjoy being part of it." He smiled. I grinned in response.
"How could I not enjoy it! You guys are awesome!" I replied. The rest of the night was fun and laid back. I met the rest of the crew and we all had, what I guess was, a celebration of me joining the PTV crew. I can't wait to start.
*THE NEXT DAY*
We were still in SD and the first show of their tour was tonight and I can't wait! But I had to do one thing today, and I'm dreading it. As I sat on the sofa in the back lounge of PTV's bus, I contemplated what I would say to Sam if he was still there. It filled me with dread thinking about seeing him again. It made me sick to my stomach, and Tony must have noticed as he came into the room.
"Hey, what's wrong?" He spoke softly as he took the space next to me.
"Just thinking about how in half an hour I have to go home and check to make sure Sam's gone. I don't want to see him." Along with myself, Tony visibly tensed at the mention of Sam. Ugh, Sam. Douchebag.
"If I you want, I can go with you. Moral support and stuff?" He offered but I kindly declined. "I don't mind. Sure I want to punch him for sleeping with Erin," he visibly tensed again. "And also for hurting you because I would consider you a friend," I smiled at this. Tony Perry is my friend. "But I can see you don't want to do this and having someone there will help. Trust me."
"If you're sure." I spoke.
"I am. We'll head off in a few minutes then." He gave a warm and maybe even happy smile, but in his eyes, I could see he was dreading this just as much as I was.
And I'm so sorry it's short. They should be longer nest time, I just needed to post something.
And again, I'm soooooo sorry for taking forever for this update. But thanks for sticking with the story if you have. The updates, I'm hoping, will be more frequent since I've virtually finished school and I go on study leave next week. Please comment and rate, it motivates me because I know people care and actually want to read it. Thank you! c
