Chapter 24 - Oh god, its him.
"Setting up drums takes forever!" CC complained as he dropped the pile of drums he held on the floor.
"And that, my love is why I'm a guitarist." I said, helping him set them up.
"I like my fingers callous free, thanks." he said, setting the foot pedal in place.
Andy hoped on the stage, turning on the mic and tapping it. "Test one two, batmaaaaan...."
Ashley laughed off stage. Andy turned around and gave him the middle finger.
We all knew about Andy's obsession with Batman, he had 3 tattoos of the symbol on his arms, his blankets were batman, he even said his underwear was batman. I never really wanted to check...
"Ow! Son of a bitch!" CC grunted. He hit his head on the edge of a drum.
"You okay?" I said, crouching next to him.
He rubbed his head, massaging the injured part. "Yeah..."
I kissed the top of his head. He smiled warmly before getting to his feet.
"All set up?" Andy asked, looking over his shoulder at us.
"yeah." CC sat down on his stool and spun in it, his hair hit me in the face, making me fall over in my crouching position.
"Whoops, sorry." he giggled, helping me up.
Jinxx and Ashley came out for soundcheck. CC, Jinxx and I practiced the breakdown for one of the new songs we were going to play.
After Set The World On Fire we paused for a few minuets. CC spun in his stool again, all us guitarists checked our tuners, Andy warmed up his voice.
"Hey! Brides!" came a voice.
A man with dirty blonde hair leaned around the corner wall. He was skinny with a tattoo that covered his whole chest, a black vest around his shoulders. he must've been from the other band that was playing with us tonight.
"Yeah?" Andy asked.
"Danny wants to know when you guys are going to be done, we got to practice too." he had a heavy british accent. I saw CC squirm uncomfortably.
"Our singer. Are you going to answer?" he asked.
"Oh yeah, sure, we don't need to practice." he said sarcasticly "Tell Danny one more song."
The guy nodded and disapeared backstage again.
"Who the hell was that?" Jinxx said.
"Hell if I know." Ashley replied, swinging his guitar around his neck.
"Lets try Set The World On Fire again" Andy said.
"We just--" CC began. I put my finger to my lips, he saw me and stopped talking.
"LIAR! Liar, LIAR SAY GOOD BYE!"
The crowd screamed again, devil horning and middle fingering us. Andy glared at hte audiance.
"I know some of you fucking hate us, I know some of you think we suck dick, but you know what? Call me when you have a fucking album, then I'll give a fuck. But right now I don't give a SHIT!"
The crowd screamed again, a couple bottles flew on stage. Andy held up his hand again.
"That was our last song anyway motherfucker! Suck my dick!"
The stage went dark so we could get off. The hallway back stage was lighted. We followed CC through the thin hallway.
The members of the other band sat backstage. I reconized the blonde guy who was talking to another member, this one had red hair and a beard that covered the majority of the bottom of his face.
"Are we up?" The blonde one called.
Andy nodded, grabbing a water from our fridge. The crowd outside began chanting the other band's name, Asking Alexandria.
"Lets do this shit!" said the one with a beard.
CC squeeled softly and clung to my arm, his face contorted in pure fear. The band pushed past us, CC flattened himself against the wall to keep away. his eyes following Red Beard.
"Whats wrong?" I whispered.
"T-that was him!" he whispered "The british guy in the alley!"
