I Count Your Heartbeats Before You Sleep

I Found You Again!?

I woke up the next morning, My head felt a bit dizzy but no headache. Good. I didn’t want to have a hangover besides I have to clean up after last night. I stood up from the couch. The party last night was supposed to be a little family and friends one, but it actually turned out like one of those high school parties after my mom, sister and grandma left to their home. Some of Jack's friends came over.

I don't think I have ever drank that much since the longest time. Although last night I tried and keep it clean while we partied I didn't do a very good job. I grab one of the big black bags from the kitchen counter, I started cleaning up when I hear laughter from the kitchen doorway. I look up and see my brother's friend, Manny

"Manny?.... What are you still doing here?" I ask and stood up from the floor leaving the bag behind on the floor.

"I still live in San Diego Mel but I'm moving in with Jack, but I have to go back and get all my things." I nod and grab the bag from the floor. " Hey, I have an Idea!" He shouts. " Come with me!" I shake my head at his suggestion.
" Come on! It will be fun! Maybe you'll see some of your old friends." I shake my head once more. I don't want to see any of my old friends. I don't think they want to see me either.

"Come on Mel, I don't want to go alone." Manny whined. "Okay fine but let me get ready."

"Okay but hurry up!" I start to make my way into my brother's bedroom. Good thing I had some clothes of mines here in his house. I use to come and sleep over when we had family reunions and I was either to lazy to drive to my place or my mom wanted us to stay together as a family since she missed us.

I look down the hall before fully entering the room, I glance at Manny, who was sitting on the couch getting comfortable. "Clean up while you wait!" He stood up immediately grabbing the nearest bag. He picks up an empty bottle as he looks up with a smirk.
I laugh and enter the bathroom in my brother's bedroom. I glance at myself in the mirror, partied hard last night. Eyeliner was under my eyes, dry mascara stuck on my eyelashes. I turn on the shower and strip off my clothes.

After the shower, I put my wet hair into a towel and wrap it around my head. I change into some comfortable clothes but presentable enough for outdoors. I grab my black ripped jeans, a leopard print brown bra-let and a denim jacket. I look through the pile of shoes and find my black creepers laying there. I grab them with out thinking twice and place them on my feet.

My creepers made me look a bit taller, which made me happy since I was called short a lot. I remove the towel from my head and pat it to dry it faster.
"Melodee?" Manny knock in the door before walking in. He took a seat on my brother's bed as he waited for me to get ready.

"Almost done." I said as I finish applying my make up. Once I finished I make my way over to Manny who seemed very entertained on his phone.

"I'm ready." I whisper to his ear.
"Oh good! Let's go." He stood up and I followed behind him.

The drive to San Diego took a while since it's two hours away from LA. It wasn't a long trip because there was hardly traffic. Manny and I talked about things we would do when we were younger and how my brother Jack would always try and hit on random girls.

"I just can't forget that night though, it was hilarious." Manny said while packing his clothes into a duffel bag. I was sitting on a wooden chair nearby as I watch his every move. I shake my head at his comment with a slight laugh. "What?" I ask as he kept his eyes focused on me.
"Nothing I was thinking if you mind if we stay a bit longer. My friend invited me to a local concert and I want to go...Wanna come?"

"Alright but do you think I look appropriate for a concert?" I ask with a chuckle.
" You look fine Melo...Now let's go I don't want to be late." I nod my head in agreement and head to his car. I run over to his black car and get in the passenger's seat while I wait for Mannyto give the keys of the house to the owner.
I glance at the rear view mirror and see him walking this direction. He took a long sigh right when he got into the driver's seat.
"What's wrong?"

"Nothing just going to miss SD. I lived here my whole childhood and all." I nod slowly taking in his comment.

"I remember when it was me leaving, it was hard but hey now my life is completely different I've met new people, lost some friends...but everything happens for a reason right." He nods and starts the engine.

We drive for about ten minutes before finally stopping. There was a gate, nothing much to see but parked cars. Manny pulls out his phone and rings someone, I'm guessing his friend. Few minutes later security opens the gates and let us in. Manny put the car in park and we head out.

"Come on."He said and gently grab my arm and lead the way. We reached the buses and headed to a specific one. It was dark blue, he removed his arm from around mine and knocks on the door.

A familiar skinny figure opens up and let us in bringing Manny into a hug. The guy glances at me and then back at Manny.

"Oh sorry. Melodee this is-"

"Alan." I finish up for Manny.
"Umm..you know each other." Manny questioned with a shocked expression on his face. I look up at Manny and pat his shoulder with a nod. Alan was still shock at my presence, I snap my fingers to bring his attention back. "Oh god, I'm sorry it's just Mel...OH MY GOD AUSTIN, PHIL, GUYS GET IN HERE." I laugh as Alan jumps around the bus in excitement, Its funny to see a happy Alan once again. Austin suddenly appeared from the back of the bus. He had his head down checking something on his phone.

"What? did you-" Austin looks up, his eyes met mine and his phone drop to the floor. He rushed towards our direction and moved pass Alan. He took a while just staring at me in shock. He points his fingers at me with a huge grin on his face.
"Austin." I finally say with a huge smile.

"Melodee, what are you doing here?" He walks back to take a seat after hugging me and taylor. Manny, Alan and I follow behind him. "Well Manny here invited me to a local show and I guess it's you guys." Austin's grin grew wider as I finished explaining. I explained to them what had happen once I left them , soon the rest of the guys joined us.

We decided to move outside, since it was getting pretty hot inside the bus, and none of them knew how to open the windows. We sat around on chairs under neath a food truck with drinks, we laughed and joked. They have all stayed the same as their hilarious self's.

I leaned back to my chair as I was almost chocking on my drink with Valentino's joke. I brought the bottle back to my lips, after putting it back to the ground and letting out a sigh as I look up at the sky. I look around at my surroundings; buses, cars, and random people.

I glance at a guy who had a camera in his hand and was snapping a photo of four familiar people. The way they were standing made it easy to look over to where me and the guys were. I turn my head quickly when I see all of them looking this direction. I really hoped they were looking at something else and not me. I look back at the guys and pretend I hadn't seen nothing.

I take a sneaky glance back at their direction only to find them walking this way. I turn my attention back at the guys again, and shake my leg up and down in nervousness, just hoping they wanted to talk to the guys and not me.

I snap on my dark sunglasses hoping they wouldn't recognize me. I pull out my phone and click on my twitter app. I scroll down the page looking at tweets, trying to distract myself.
"Hey guys!" I heard a familiar voice say. I didn't move my head to make it seem like I was staring at my phone but since I had my sunglasses on they wouldn't know I was staring.

I look at all of them, I glance at a particular one; he had a lot more tattoos, he was wearing a sleeveless Key Street shirt, some jeans and a snap-back with a Jedi braid hanging from his right shoulder. He had a small smile and a bottle in his hand but kept his eyes focused on the ground.

"Hey man what's up!" Austin stood up from his chair. I really hoped Austin wouldn't mention me at all

"Nothing, We just came to wish you guys luck on performing out there." I continue to shake my leg until Manny soon rest his hand on my knee, letting me relax a bit. I hear them talking more about their performances until It was driving me crazy to just sit here and wait until they leave. What if they see me, what if they already did? All these questions were going to kill me. I look up from my phone and see one of them staring at me, he furrow his eyebrows but then it faded away into a shock face.

"Mel you okay?" Manny whispers to me. "Not really can we go back to their bus...but don't tell no one." Manny nods and stood up and walk pass the guys, I reached for his hand and follow behind him as close as I can trying to hide.

We made it to the bus without any trouble or without them noticing me."What happened, why did we leave just like that?"

"It's just.. I need to pee." I run to the restroom while laughing. I make my business and wash my hands. I make my way back to the kitchen area and find one of the persons I've been trying to avoid this whole time. He was talking to Manny,he probably knew I was here and now there is no way in hiding, he will see me either way.

I take a seat on one of the chairs as I try to play it off. " There you are, are you ready to head back out." I nod as we walk out back to the guys, I kept my head down and my glasses on. "Hey um do you know what time it is?" He asks, great now he's going to see me. I look up at him and take off my sunglasses, since there is no point in hiding anymore.

"Yeah it is eleven o'clock." I said with half a smile. "Melodee?" I nod as his grin grew wide. "Melodee!" He jumps and hugs me tightly. I laugh at him as I try hard for him to put me down. "Vic! put me down!" He does as he's told, I turn to where the rest of the guys were and they all had shock expression's especially Tony.
Tony stood there with his mouth pop open into a 'o'. Jaime and Mike ran over and both of them pick me up and hug me even more. I laugh hard and tell them to stop.

"Tony get over here!" Mike yells at a still shock Tony. He slowly starts to head to where we were standing. Once he reached us I take this time to take in all his features once again. He clearly had more tattoos and I swear at the moment his smile would be the death of me. I wave at him to try to make things less awkward. He waves back as he smiled widely.

"Umm...So um.. sorry to stop you guys from looking at each other like that but aren't you guys going to say anything to each other?" Vic says as he snaps his fingers in front of our faces. I hadn't realize that me and Tony were looking at each other for quite some time. Manny came over with the rest of the guys in Of Mice and Men and joined us.

After the concert ended which was amazing for the record. Their fans were crazy even if they just started. Vic's band, Pierce the Veil played as well and honestly they have become more amazing in these past months.
And soon the drinking began. We were drinking inside Of Mice and Men bus. I wasn't really drunk since I was going to be the one driving I told Manny he could go ahead and drink as much as he wanted.

I sat in the back of the bus thinking again. Thinking how my life would have been if I hadn't left, or if I had gotten with Tony. I really hated going online and seeing Tony happy with Stephanie with all the fans support. I know I was being selfish so that is why I had pushed it aside these past months and planned on starting all over again. But now it has come back, they came back into my life.
Now all I can do is leave again and try to forget them again. Honestly, I did miss the guys a lot! But they didn't even bothered to call me or even text me. Sure, gladly if they would have, I would have come back but they never did so I always thought they forgot about me.

Maybe they were trying to forget me too, maybe they didn't even care in the first place, maybe they were happy I was gone. At first I didn't want to believe it, but one night I got a phone call from Kim telling me Vic, her boyfriend and the guys had left to tour. And he didn't even ever called her back, that made it super clear they didn't want anything to do with us.

"Hey.." I hear someone whisper, Tony came in and took a seat next to me.
"Oh uh hey Tony." I reply while I kept my focus on the ground.
"I miss when you call me Turtle." I laugh at his comment and soon he joins the laughter. Later the awkward silence got in between us.
"Turtle.." I finally say to break the silence.

"Hmm" He replys looking at me. "Are you drunk?"

"Kinda..what about you?"

"Nah. I'm staying sober tonight." ..."Oh"

"Mel..Why did you leave me?"

"Tony I didn't. You actually never called."

"It's because Stephanie, she deleted your number from my phone and I was scared." He reply getting closer to me. I look into his eyes, the big brown eyes I missed.

"Where's Stephanie?" I ask still looking at his eyes.

"We broke up, Well I broke up with her."
"Sorry to hear that but why would you break up with her?" I couldn't believe after all the time they've been together he left her and now I need to know why.

"I couldn't stop thinking.."

"Thinking? Thinking about what?" I didn't want to pressure him and scare him off but I was really just curious.

"You." I froze as he said that word. you. I'm the reason, wait what about me?

"Why were you thinking about me?" A sudden urge came to me, I needed to know.

"I..I couldn't stop thinking about you Melodee, your smile and your laugh. I just couldn't forget about my best friend like that." I knew the sober Tony Perry would never talk like that, he was always so shy but still don't drunks speak sober's mind.

I look at him once again and I see him start to lean in, I don't hesitate and lean in slowly, letting him do the move. He gently grab my waist and push me closer to him. I go ahead and grab his back hair and bring our lips together. We slowly moved our lips together, but I suddenly wanted more from Tony, I lick his bottom lip asking for entrance. He parted his lips and our tongues collide.

We pulled away to catch our breaths. He started at me once again. "What?" I ask with smile.

"You've changed?" A sudden smirk appeared on his lips. "How?"

"Okay first you kissed me back so passionately and with an urge." I laugh at his a comment.

"I just missed your soft lips." I add, he blushed and smiled.

"Oh yeah and second, you got tattoos now, and a septum!" He adds as I push him off slightly.

"Oh my! I have some tattoos! You got a lot more!" I reply in defense. He blushes again and looks at the floor. I know it was a bad idea to kiss Tony like that, I just found him again and I already kissed him. But something was telling me to go for it. All of these feelings came back. I couldn't help it, I needed to feel his lips against mine again. And now that I did I felt proud.

"Are you leaving back LA tomorrow?"

"Uh yeah.." I sigh at my own answer. "Well I want to catch up with you, I mean now that we finish touring I want to go back to hanging with you, all of us do."

"I don't know Tony.. I haven't hung out with you guys in a while and I just don't know."

"It's okay Mel. We're not going to eat you at least not them but me, i don't know." He winks at me as I shake my head while bursting into laughter.

"Okay..Okay but let's talk about it in the morning, I'm sleepy." I yawn as I lay down on the small couch we were sitting on. "Goodnight." He kisses my cheek and lays down next to me.
