In case you were wondering, yes, I did get a close-up look at Parker while he was playing his guitar right in front of me, and yes, he is just as good-looking in person, if not better.

As good as the concert was-and it was awesome, if I do say so myself- I couldn’t wait for it to be over. I impatiently waited for everyone else to leave the arena before turning to my mom.

“Can we go now?”

“Sure,” she said, smiling at my obvious lack of patience. “Lead on.”

Slowly, we made our way backstage. There were a surprising number of people there. Mom and I split up, trying to find someone who could help us. I found a guy who had his back turned to me, and didn’t look like he was working. I came up behind him, saying, “Excuse me, but do you mind helping me? I’m looking for Alyssa Caroll.”

He turned around, shook my hand, and said politely, “Parker Henderson. And you are?”

“Amy McDonald,” I told him, stunned. Parker was standing right in front of me! How could I have not noticed him from the back? I felt myself blush. He grinned, not because he noticed my blush, I hope.

“Nice to meet you!” He seemed genuinely pleased. “Matt, Jason, get over here!” he called. “This is Amy McDonald.”

Jason and Matt came over and shook my hand too. They both seemed nice enough, although Parker was definitely the most excited to see me.

“We were just about to head to this cool all-night pancake house for an after-show snack. You up for it?” Parker wanted to know.

“Sure,”

~~~

Twenty minutes later, Parker, Matt, Jason, and I were sitting in a booth in this really cool retro restaurant, complete with neon lights. Parker and I were sitting next to each other. We had become fast friends-and I mean really fast. I had barely managed to say good-bye to Mom- luckily, we’d kept the waterworks to a minimum-and meet Alyssa, who had declined the invitation to come with us, saying she was really tired.

Let me just say that I know that teenage boys have a tendency to eat a lot- I go to high school; I should know- but I have never seen one eat as much as Jason did. He ate four pancakes, two eggs, toast, hash browns, and a Belgian waffle! Matt and Parker ate a lot too, but nowhere near as much as Jason. I just had a glass of milk.
While we ate, Parker managed to keep up a steady stream of conversation. Mostly he asked me questions about myself. He had me spilling my guts (except for the fact that I like to sing). That’s just the kind of personality he has.

His first question was, “What’s your family like?”

“Well,” I said, thinking for a moment, “It’s just me and my mom, because my dad died when I was ten. Mom’s a lawyer, ad great in the courtroom, but at home, she’s eccentric and forgetful. We get along pretty well.”

“What about your friends?” Matt chipped in.

“I don’t really have any close friends.” I admitted. “I’ve always been kind of a loner.”

“That’s too bad,” Jason said, “Matt and Parker are my best friends. I don’t know what I’d do without them. Although,” he added with a grin, “Matt doesn’t really count, since he’s my cousin.”

“Hey!”

I had to smile at that. The guys of Midnight Down were really funny as a whole, although, from what I had gathered so far, their personalities were quite different. Parker, with his gangly body, long, straight blond hair that fell into his eyes a bit, and emerald green eyes that sparkled with interest and amusement, was more of the quiet, serious, type. He seemed to be interested in everything going on around him, especially people. To people who didn’t know him, he might seem like an introvert. I couldn’t tell if he really was yet, though.

On the other hand, Matt, who wore his shorter blond hair gelled into spikes, and Jason, with his short, brown hair, were more of the joker type. I didn’t doubt that they would play a practical joke on me before my stay was over.
All of them were about the same age- Jason and Matt were nineteen, and Parker had just turned seventeen. Together, they made a good group.

Suddenly, Jason glanced at his watch. “Yikes! We’d better go, or the buses might leave without us!”

So we did.

~~~

Sorry if it's a bit boring. Things will pick up soon, I promise.

Okay, I know this is a long update (3 pages single spaced in MS word). I'm just warning you guys that this'll be the last one for a few days, mainly because of HP7, and I don't have any of the next chapter written yet.

Hope you like it!


~~~

Chapter 5
“He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know why I do”
(“Teardrops On My Guitar”, Taylor Swift)

When I opened my eyes the next morning, I knew two things. First, that I was in the bottom bunk on Alyssa’s bus and it was-I checked the clock- about eight o’clock. Second, I must be in Maine, because the bus wasn’t moving.
I got out of bed and noticed a note on a small table that appeared to be in Alyssa’s handwriting. It said:

Amy,
Sorry if I missed you, I didn’t want to wake you up. I will probably be out shopping all day, but if you want, we can meet here at five and I’ll treat you to dinner to make up for abandoning you. Feel free to make yourself at home. Thing will be pretty boring ‘till about six, which is when we warm up and stuff.
Alyssa

No wonder she went to bed before everyone else last night; she had plans to get up at some ungodly hour to go shopping.

I got my clothes and took a shower in the small yet nice and clean bathroom, enjoying the hot water. When I was done, I got out my guitar and songwriting notebook. The song I was currently working on was called “Invisible Girl”. It was not quite finished yet- it needed that extra something that set it apart. Specifically, a way to start the song, which I intended to be slow and soulful. I was just strumming on my guitar, brainstorming, when it came to me. I started to play and sang:

You walk by her, and don’t even see
No one notices, but I do
Because that girl
That girl is me

I kept going through the whole song. It was perfect! I smiled to myself, writing it down in my notebook.

“Hey,” A soft voice said. I looked into Parker’s green eyes and smiled.

“Hey,” I replied. I know, really witty, huh? At least he smiled at me in response, and I don’t think he was making fun of me.

“I was just wondering if you wanted to go see a movie with me,” he said, almost uncertainly. “There isn’t really that much to do around here right now, unless you want to hang out with Jason and Matt, who are currently planning a practical joke on our drummer. And I happen to know from experience that it’s best to leave them alone when they’re doing stuff like that.”

“A movie sounds great,” I agreed. “What do you want to see?”

“You can pick.”

“Anything scary, then. I love scary movies.”

“Me, too. It looks like a good one just came out.”

“Let’s go, then.”

~~~

A couple of hours later, we were walking back from the movies, both of us laughing hysterically.

“That was truly awful!” I exclaimed. Parker nodded in agreement.

“Did you see the blood? It looked like ketchup!”

“I thought you said it was supposed to be good,” I teased him, “That was the worst horror movie I have ever seen.”

By the time we had caught our breath after laughing so hard, we had gotten back to the buses.

“I’ll see you soon. You’re going to watch the concert from backstage, right?” Parker asked me.

I nodded, and watched him retreat to the bus he shared with Jason and Matt.

I went back to my guitar and “Invisible Girl”, making some final adjustments. Before long, I was engrossed in the song, and the next time I looked up, it was almost five o’clock. Remembering Alyssa’s note, I put my guitar away and hid my songwriting notebook under my pillow. Childish, I know, but I didn’t want Alyssa to stumble across it. What I had written in there was private. I had never shown it to anyone, not even Mom.

No sooner had I put my stuff away than Alyssa came in, shopping bags in hand. I took that to mean that her expedition had been successful.

I had a sudden thought. “Didn’t anyone notice who you were?”

“You’d be surprised,” she said with a smile. “Most people don’t notice celebrities unless they’re expecting to see them. They just think, ‘that person looks a lot like so-and-so’.”

“That’s good. At least you aren’t always being hounded by obsessed fans.”

~~~

Dinner with Alyssa wasn’t that bad, considering the fact that I couldn’t wait for it to be over. I really wanted to watch another midnight Down concert- I couldn’t help it. They just had such a contagious energy onstage.
I did realize something about Alyssa as we ate and talked in a restaurant that could only be described as casually formal. She’s rather self-centered. I’m not trying to be mean; that’s just her personality. Our conversation revolved mostly around her and her life. The only time we talked about me, or anything else for that matter, was at the very beginning, when she asked me a few questions about my family. Even then, she only listened with polite disinterest and quickly returned the subject to herself.

Another thing I realized about Alyssa was that, had I met her at school, I never would have been her friend. She was the ever-perky cheerleader type that always gave me a headache when I even thought about talking to them. How can one person have so much energy? In the high school in my hometown, those people had all been popular, which was enough to ensure that we wouldn’t have been friend right there. I was a loner, mostly ignored by the popular crowd.

Thankfully, I survived dinner- I know, I know, here I am complaining about spending time with a celebrity-and, almost before I could blink, I found myself backstage, in a spot that I thought was perfect, where I could see the crowd and the stage, but nobody could see me.

I guess I paid more attention to the show the second time around, because I wasn’t anxiously waiting for it to be over. This time, I really noticed how the strobe lights and smoke got the crowd screaming, how the guys worked off that energy and got them involved, singing parts of the songs with them. Mostly, I noticed how Midnight Down had a blast onstage, really getting into it. Jason, who was playing bass-although he also played piano, keyboard, and drums-especially.

Suddenly, I had a wish-no, a longing-to be up there with them, playing my guitar and singing along. Playing my songs. If only I could find the courage to sing in front of other people. I thought I was a passably good singer, but what would other people think? Never had I sung within earshot of anyone else, not even Mom, whom I was closest to.

I doubted I would be able to play my songs, either. Simply stated, they were private, as they contained my innermost thoughts and feelings.

With a last loud bang, the concert finished. Startled, I shook my head to clear my thoughts. It was no use dwelling on them.

A short while later, as I lay I bed in that strange state between being awake and asleep, I made myself a promise. I would do anything in my power to make sure I got up on that stage, even if it meant conquering my fears.

Meanie teaser!

“Could you give me some advice?” he asked in a rush. He looked embarrassed, and still would not look me in the eye.

“That depends on what you need advice on.” I answered. Now I wanted to know why he was embarrassed. We had shared awkward stories about when we were kids, and that hadn’t embarrassed him. Then again, guys could be weird like that.

“Well, um…it’s actually…about a girl.” Parker said tentatively.

*insert evil laugh here* I know it was mean. To make up for it, here's an update.

Hi, new reader! You get an :mgicecream:


Chapter 6
“Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can’t breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly, the kind of flawless I wish I could be”

(“Teardrops On My Guitar”, Taylor Swift)

The next two days passed without anything really interesting happening.

Well, I guess the four of us (Matt, Jason, Parker, and myself) going to the museums on the Mall while we were in Washington, DC was interesting.

But aside from that, it was pretty boring. It wasn’t until the fourth day that things really started getting interesting (and dramatic).

The fourth day started much the same as the last few had. I woke up just as Alyssa was leaving to go shopping-I swear, that girl is a shopaholic- and immediately pulled out my guitar and started singing.

Then something happened that I totally wasn’t expecting- just as I finished the first song, Alyssa came back in. She looked kind of mad for some reason, but I didn’t get a chance to ask her about it, because she quickly picked up the cell phone she had apparently forgotten and left again.

You know that feeling you get when you get caught doing something you shouldn’t have been doing? That’s exactly how I felt just then. My heart was pounding, and my hands were shaking. What if she had heard me? That would be awful! I still wasn’t ready to sing in front of other people.

I pushed those thoughts out of my head, turned on the radio, and started playing along.

It wasn’t long before someone else joined me: Parker. He had barely come in when he realized what I was doing, smiled, and dashed back out again. A minute later he was back, his guitar in tow.

We played to the radio together for a while, but then Parker suggested a game kind of like HORSE. One of us would take turns playing the beginning of a song. The other person would have to name the song and artist, and play some more of the song. If they couldn’t, they got a letter.

It was really fun for a while, but we were both really good at it, so we eventually got to the point where neither of us was winning, and we were running out of songs.

So we started watching a movie on Alyssa’s flat screen TV instead.

About halfway through the movie, Parker suddenly said, not looking directly at me, “You know a lot about people.”

He phrased it as a statement, but I sensed a question in there, so I said, “I guess,” sounding puzzled even to my own ears, which, in fact, I was.

“Could you give me some advice?” he asked in a rush. He looked embarrassed, and still would not look me in the eye.

“That depends on what you need advice on.” I answered. Now I wanted to know why he was embarrassed. We had shared awkward stories about when we were kids, and that hadn’t embarrassed him. Then again, guys could be weird like that.

“Well, um…it’s actually…about a girl.” Parker said tentatively. Well, that would explain the embarrassment.

“I don’t know if I’ll be able to help you,” I told him after a moment’s thought, “but I’ll do my best.”

Parker flashed my a relieved grin and said, finally meeting my eye, “Thanks! Here’s the thing. I really like this girl, but I don’t know how to show that without telling her and making a fool out of myself.”

I thought a minute before answering; trying to remember what happened in those romantic comedies Mom loves so much. Finally, I had the answer.

“Girls like guys who make them laugh, so just tell her a joke-a funny one-and be sure to smile at her.”

“Are you sure, Amy?” Parker asked, looking dubious. “I’ve kind of already tried that, and I don’t think it worked.”

I shrugged. “It won’t hurt to try again.”

“I will,” he said, looking determined. Then he did something I totally wasn’t expecting. He hugged me. “Thanks for the advice.”

“You’re welcome. Now please shut up. I like this part.” I said, turning my attention back to the movie we were watching. But now I couldn’t concentrate on it. My thoughts kept going back to that hug. Innocent as it was-a hug between friends-it made me realize something. Something important. My crush on Parker, which had started as just a girl’s crush on a celebrity, had turned into a crush on a guy friend, which I knew from experience, hardly ever ended well.

Oh, crap, I thought, as Parker proceeded to tell me a rather funny blond joke, this is not good. Not good at all.

~~~

There's a little bit more to this chapter, so I'll put it up later.

She's just self-centered. She will become a b**** soon, but right now... she was just talking to Parker. Amy just took it wrong.

parker likes amy because she told him to tell a joke and he just told her a joke and she totally didnt see what he mean
AMY TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE
lol

... Right!

Here's the rest of the chapter. It's not much.

Later that night, just before the concert began, I went looking for Parker backstage to warn him about a prank Jason and Matt were planning. He was their intended victim, so I figured he had a right to be forewarned. The prank? I’ll just say that it involved Parker’s guitar and Alyssa’s pink one.

Suddenly, I came to a halt. I had found Parker, all right. He was standing next to Alyssa, who was laughing, presumably at something he had said. I remembered our conversation from earlier. Well, I thought, it didn’t take him long to put my advice into action.

At that moment, I felt disappointed, and more than a little hurt. So it was Alyssa whom he liked, and not me, who I thought-okay, hoped-it was.

How could he like her? Not to be mean or anything, but she was so self-centered and egotistical. I hadn’t seen that coming at all.

As I walked away-without having told Parker about the prank-I decided that even though he liked her, and not me, that didn’t mean we couldn’t be friends. I would treat him just the same as I had before.

So, for the next few days, that’s what I did. I tried not to think about Alyssa and Parker, and I did that by throwing myself (when I wasn’t playing my guitar with Parker) into my latest song. It was a ballad titled “Best Friend Blues” about a girl who likes a guy who just happens to be her best friend and likes another girl.

My songs aren’t at all autobiographical, can’t you tell?
