^^No, he doesn't like Alyssa, don't worry. Don't tell Amy that, though, she has to find out on her own! :D

I'll probably update Friday, but if not, definitely Saturday. I'm going on vacation the 29-4. You won't see me the whole time, but don't worry, I didn't die.

“Your advice was really good last time,” he said, obviously sucking up to me, “but I’m not sure if it worked or not. That’s probably my fault. Could you please help me out again?”

It looked like it was working all right, I thought. What I said was, “Well… I don’t know. I think you exhausted my advice reserves.”


Here's a teaser! I'm almost done the chapter. it should be up this afternoon.

Here it is! I made it long because you guys'll have to go a week without and update.

I hope you like it. Iknoww it's a little boring, but things will get very interesting next chapter. I promise!

~~~

Chapter 7
“She'd better hold him tight, give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes and know she's lucky ‘cause”
(“Teardrops On My Guitar”, Taylor Swift)

The next several days went by all too quickly. Five of my precious fourteen days had already passed! Needless to say, I was not looking forward to going home. I absolutely loved it on the road, especially the concerts. The best part was that moment when the lights went out, and all you could hear was the roar of the crowd. I wasn’t onstage at that time, of course, but I was backstage, which was almost as good.

Parker and I were still hanging out, because we were still friends. I had never had a best friend before, so it was a nice change to have someone to laugh and joke around with. As much as we joked around, we could still be serious on occasion. It just happened rarely.

For example, on the fifth day, Parker was dead serious when he asked me about melanoma.

“I didn’t ask you this before, because I didn’t want to seem nosy or anything, but… can you explain it a bit? I’m not a doctor, but I’ll try to understand.”

“What do you want to know?” I asked.

“How did you find out you had skin cancer?”

“Well, I went in for a regular physical, and my doctor noticed something abnormal. He was already watching carefully, because my dad had melanoma, so it was more likely that I would. He sent me to a specialist, who confirmed what the doctor had suspected.”

“What happened to your dad?” Parker asked me, sounding like a reporter. He was watching me and my reactions to his questions with curious fascination.

“The cancer had metastasized, which means it spread to other places. It was too late for him; they couldn’t treat it. He died four short months after he was diagnosed.” I said it all without looking at Parker. I didn’t want him to see my tears, still so close to the surface.

Then he asked the question I had been dreading. “Are you nervous?”

“Yes,” I answered honestly. “I’ve never been more scared in my life. And the closer I get to it, the more nervous I am. I can’t help remembering what happened to Dad, and I just hope the same thing doesn’t happen to me.”

“I’m glad you told me this,” Parker said softly.

“I am too. It’s nice to have a best friend that I can tell everything to.” I said, looking into his beautiful green eyes and smiling.
“Speaking of best friends,” he said, changing the subject, for which I was grateful, “best friends help each other out, right?”

“Yeah,” I agreed, wondering where this conversation was headed.

“I need your advice again.”

I just rolled my eyes.

“Your advice was really good last time,” he said, obviously sucking up to me, “but I’m not sure if it worked or not. That’s probably my fault. Could you please help me out again?”

It looked like it was working all right, I thought. What I said was, “Well… I don’t know. I think you exhausted my advice reserves.”

I was teasing, of course, but Parker must not have realized that.

“Pretty please?” he asked, begging now. He gave me the innocent little puppy dog look.

If I hadn’t already decided to help him, I would have definitely caved. I couldn’t stand it.

“Okay!” I told him. Parker smiled happily at that. “But you have to promise not to give me that look again. Now let me think for a minute.”

Guess where I looked (mentally) for inspiration. Yup, those stupid romantic comedies again. Then it hit me. The answer was obvious, really.

“Well, guys like to talk about themselves, so ask her a question about herself, and act interested, even if you aren’t. Keep the conversation on her.”

“Where do you get your ideas?” he asked in amazement.

“Um, I actually get them from the romantic comedies my mom makes me watch with her sometimes.” I admitted with a sheepish smile.

That made him roar with laughter. Soon I was laughing along with him, helplessly, because his laughter was so contagious. I couldn’t do anything but laugh along.

After an immeasurable amount of time, we got ourselves under control and sat in companionable silence, thinking.

Well, I was thinking, at least. I’m not too sure about Parker.

Evidently he was pondering something himself, because he said, as if a thought had just struck him, “Hey, Amy?”

“Yeah?” I responded, as I returned from where my thoughts had taken me, and trying not to let it show that I had been thinking about him.

“I just had an idea,” Parker told me, somewhat excitedly. “Would you like to come onstage with us before the concert while we rehearse and play your guitar with us?”

That was such a stupid question, and I was not afraid to tell Parker so. I had only one doubt.

“Will Matt and Jason mind?” I asked. I didn’t want them to be mad at me, after all.

“No, not at all. They’ve actually been wanting to hear you play for a while now,” he reassured me.

As if on cue, Matt and Jason came in, laughing so hard I thought they would wet themselves. I knew from experience that they had probably just successfully executed a practical joke.

“Who was it this time?” Parker questioned them, echoing my thoughts.

“Kevin, the keyboardist. It was really funny. I wish you guys had been there.” Jason told us. Matt, his ever-faithful sidekick, nodded in agreement.

“I just asked Amy if she’d like to play with us during rehearsal. You don’t mind, do you?”

“That’d be cool. I don’t mind.”

“Me either.”

“See you there, Amy!” They called as they left.

Parker gave me a look that said ‘I told you so’ and smiled as I grinned ear to ear.
I couldn’t wait! That was exactly what I had wanted. It would be the experience of a lifetime to see the crowd-well, a bunch of empty seats- from the stage. I had the sudden urge to jump up and down and squeal in excitement, but I wanted to act dignified in front of Parker, so I controlled the urge.

Luckily, Parker didn’t say anything about my apparent enthusiasm.

“If I remember correctly, Terry said that you are a songwriter, too.” He said, sounding curious.
I nodded, puzzled, unfortunately not knowing where it was headed.

“Do you have your songs with you? If you don’t mind, I’d like to hear them. Only if they aren’t too personal.” Parker added hastily.

“Um…” I said, sounding like an idiot. I couldn’t think of anything to say. I wanted to play my songs for him. I mean, if I ever wanted them to be played publicly, I had to let someone hear them. Also, I figured Parker would be a good person to play for. He would be honest, but kind. More importantly, he would understand how I felt about my music.

Then again, was I ready to let anyone hear something so personal? I couldn’t let him hear the song I’d pretty much written about him, that was for sure.

As I mentally debated this issue, I realized that Parker was still waiting for my answer.

“Sure,” I said. After all, the good outweighed the bad. What was there to lose?
I got up and retrieved my songwriting notebook from underneath my pillow. I turned back to Parker, who was chuckling quietly.

“Shut up,” I glared at him. “Do you want to hear my songs or not?”

That made him shut up pretty quickly.

“I’m warning you, I don’t sing very well.” I told him. That was unfortunate. Shouldn’t you be good at something you love so much?

“That doesn’t matter. I just want to hear your songs."

I sat down, grabbed my guitar, opened my notebook to “Invisible Girl”, and took a deep breath. My hands were shaking. I mentally reprimanded myself. It would not do me any good to be nervous.

When I started playing, I had to admit that I sounded pretty good, even to my own ears. Without looking at Parker, I sang the beginning of the song, which I had perfected only a few days ago:

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

“Invisible Girl” continued, the music soft and slow. I closed my eyes, letting the music flow from beneath my fingers.

All to soon, the song was over. I opened my eyes, looked questioningly at Parker, trying to gauge his reaction. At the moment, his eyes were closed, as mine had been. When he opened them and looked at me, I was surprised to see a little moisture there. For a long moment, he was silent, apparently trying to think of something to say.

“The only thing I can say is wow.” He said, eventually finding his voice. “That was amazing. I’ve never heard anything quite like it.”

“I know my voice sucks, you don’t have to be polite about it,” I told him, embarrassed at his praise and trying to lighten the mood.

My attempt worked. He smiled a little, saying, “Your voice doesn’t suck. In fact, I think it’s beautiful. Much better that most professional singers.” Obviously, he was trying to cheer me up, since my singing voice is about as beautiful as the sound of nails on a chalkboard. This statement did nothing to help my embarrassment. My cheeks were now on fire, compared to the slight warmth that had been there before, and it was getting worse each second.

“I’d better go,” Parker said, glancing at his watch. “See you in a bit!”

Thanks for being so patient! I managed to get through it!

To my new readers (I noticed a few new votes in the poll) hi, and thanks for reading.

Everyone gets a cookie for the long wait. Next time, feel free to bug me about updating. I'll probably do it faster.

I know this update is short, and I'm sorry. This isn't even half of chapter 8, but I figured you guys would rather have a short update now than wait a few more days for a long one.

Chapter 8
“He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star”

(“Teardrops On My Guitar”, Taylor Swift)

I was busy bringing my journal up to date later that afternoon. I hadn’t written anything since, well, before I realized how I really feel about Parker, so I had a lot to catch up on. I was so glad I had thought to bring my journal with me. It was nice to have someone I could totally confide in. I could tell Parker almost everything, but obviously not about that feeling I got every time he touched me.

That’s what I was thinking when Parker barged in.

“Come on, Amy!” he said, grabbing my hand. “We’re going to be late.”

“Why didn’t you come earlier, then?” I asked as I stuffed my journal under my pillow.

“I was sleeping, and Matt and Jason decided it would be funny to leave without waking me up.” He said, somewhat sourly.

I had to laugh. He sounded like a whiny little kid just then.

Parker just gave me a dirty look, took my hand again, and led me toward the door.

“Are you coming?” I asked Alyssa, who had been doing her makeup in the bathroom.

“In a minute,” I heard her say as I was dragged outside.

We had gotten all the way to the arena where the concert was being held by the time I remembered my guitar.

“I’ll be right back,” I told Parker. “I forgot my guitar.”

I ran all the way back to the bus I shared with Alyssa. She was just closing the door behind her when she saw me running toward her.

“Forget something?”

“My guitar. Pretty stupid, huh?” I expected her to laugh, or at least smile, but she seemed to be in a funny mood. She said nothing, just stood aside and let me in.

My guitar was lying on my bed, next to my journal. That’s funny. I thought I put my journal under my pillow. Maybe I didn’t. Shrugging, I put it back where it was supposed to be.
I grabbed my guitar and ran all the way back to the arena.

~~~

Did someone read her journal? :unsure: :icon_eek:

Here it is, finally!

This is a really mean chapter! :D

The first part is my last update.

Chapter 8
“He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star”

(“Teardrops On My Guitar”, Taylor Swift)

I was busy bringing my journal up to date later that afternoon. I hadn’t written anything since, well, before I realized how I really feel about Parker, so I had a lot to catch up on. I was so glad I had thought to bring my journal with me. It was nice to have someone I could totally confide in. I could tell Parker almost everything, but obviously not about that feeling I got every time he touched me.

That’s what I was thinking when Parker barged in.

“Come on, Amy!” he said, grabbing my hand. “We’re going to be late.”

“Why didn’t you come earlier, then?” I asked as I stuffed my journal under my pillow as quickly as I could; he was obviously in a rush.

“I was sleeping, and Matt and Jason decided it would be funny to leave without waking me up.” He said, somewhat sourly.

I had to laugh. He sounded like a petulant little kid just then.

Parker just gave me a dirty look, took my hand again, and led me toward the door.

“Are you coming?” I called to Alyssa, who had been doing her makeup in the bathroom.

“In a minute,” I heard her say as I was dragged outside.

We had gotten all the way to the arena where the concert was being held by the time I remembered my guitar.

“I’ll be right back,” I told Parker. “I forgot my guitar.”

I ran all the way back to the bus I shared with Alyssa. Luckily it wasn’t too far from the arena. It only took me a minute to get back. She was just closing the door behind her when she saw me running toward her.

“Forget something?”

“My guitar. Pretty stupid, huh?” I expected her to laugh, or at least smile, but she seemed to be in a funny mood. She said nothing, just stood aside and let me in.

My guitar was lying on my bed, next to my journal. That’s funny. I thought I put my journal under my pillow. Maybe I didn’t. Shrugging, I put it back where it was supposed to be.

I grabbed my guitar and ran all the way back to the arena.

~~~

Alyssa must have run the whole way, I thought. I didn’t pass her coming back.

Just then, my thoughts were interrupted by a water balloon hitting me on the back. I’ll give you three guesses to who the culprit was.

If you guessed Jason and Matt, you would be correct.

Of course, then I had to chase after them, steal a couple of their balloons (they had a whole pile; apparently I wasn’t the only intended target), and get them back.

Revenge- I love it.

It must have been about ten minutes later by the time I went to find Parker. He was rather hard to find, too. I was about to give up when I stumbled across him. He was talking to Alyssa.

I heard them before I saw them; they were behind a curtain.

“I have to tell you something, something I think you’ll be interested in.” Alyssa was saying. That made me freeze in my tracks, curious.

“What is it?” Parker asked, sounding like he didn’t want to have that conversation.

“It’s about Amy,” Whoa, what? ME? I had to keep listening. “She told me something I think you should know.”

“Get to the point. We have to go rehearse.”

“Fine. She said that she’s totally in love with you. The only reason she wanted to meet Midnight Down is because of you. Because you’re rich and famous.”

Emotions swept through me. I was stunned for a second, then totally furious. How dare she? That totally wasn’t true! Okay, maybe the part about me being in love with him, but not the second part!

Wait, how does she know how I feel about him? Then realization dawned on me. She must have read my diary!

I couldn’t believe it. What had I ever done to her? I’d been nothing but nice since the very beginning.

What did Parker think? I listened.

“So, what do you have to say?” Alyssa asked when Parker was silent.

“If Amy is in love with me, then she has to be the one to tell me,” he finally replied, “as for the rest of it, I don’t believe it. I know Amy, and she wouldn’t do that.”

Yes! He didn’t swallow that awful lie!

Alyssa, upon hearing that, stormed off.

I waited until Parker walked away, then went after him, so he wouldn’t know what I had overheard.

~~~

It was amazing being up on stage with Midnight Down. The arena looked so much bigger than from any other vantage point. Standing up there, all I could see were rows of empty seats. I could tell all I was missing was an audience, and the thrill of performing in front of one.

I played three songs with the band before stepping aside and letting them practice a new one, which I could already tell had the potential to be a number one hit.

I stood to the side of the stage and put my guitar down. I was standing there smiling with my arms folded across my chest, just enjoying the show, when I noticed something move out of the corner of my eye.

I looked up. It was a set of lights, which appeared to be swinging a bit.

If I hadn’t known better, I would have assumed it was swinging because of the music, which was loud, because the song was loud and had a fast tempo.

But I had seen the lights being set up by the crew before, and I knew for a fact that they were very heavy. Seeing the moving like that, like they were about to fall, was not a good thing.

Then two, no, three things happened at the same time.

First, I noticed that the light set was directly above Parker’s head.

Second, the lights gave way and plummeted towards the floor.

Third, I lunged forward, yelling “NO!” with the horrible feeling I was too late.

With a deafening crash, the light set hit the stage.

Haha!
