A:N/ I've kind of got bored of "Everything I've Ever needed" so I'm writing a new one XD I will update that one soon but for now enjoy my new FF
Chapter 1 - Claudine
"OK Claudine you're on in three minutes!" My boyfriend Edward called from the corridor out side of my dressing room. I ran up to him and gave him a kiss on the cheek. I'd meet him a year ago at one of my very first concerts and I feel for him in seconds. He was so gorgeous! His deep blue eyes stared into mine and I leaned in for a kiss. "Babe!" He said "You have like, two minutes!" I blushed and giggled
"You got my microphone honey?" I said. He handed me my headset and I quickly slipped it on. Running back to my mirror to check it hadn't ruined my hair, I caught Edward staring at my but as I ran away. I grinned. Me and Edward had been going through a rough patch and it was little things like that that made me believe we could make it.
"Claudine! You're on in one minute!" he called. I put on one more layer of lip gloss and fixed my hair. Rushing to the side of the stage Edward gave me a reassuring smile and a thumbs up. I put on my best sexy smile and flicked my hair.
"Ok!" He said giving my a quick kiss on the cheek. "You're on!"
"Live in Washington, it's CLAUDINE CAMERON!!!!!" Said a loud booming voice coming out of the speakers. As the people in audience cheered and screamed I rushed on stage. Small explosions at the side of the stage showered it in glitter and a smoke machine began spurting out smoke around my ankles. The music started and I launched into my first song.
"I see you acting like you know who I am! You think you got it but you don't understand you see, oh! You got nothing on me!" I sang out and my fans screamed. On the far right I could see a group of girls holding up a banner saying Claudine rules all!!!! We love you!!!!. I grinned and continued to sing. This was always my favourite song to sing. Purely because it reminded me of my days at Britannia High.
"You were AMAZING honey!" Edward said as I ran of stage. He grabbed onto my waist as I ran past and pulled me into a hug. "You were absolutely wonderful! And so amazingly sexy!"
"I know!" I said cheekily flashing him a smile and giving him a kiss. God I love him. He's so perfect. And so, so hot! I giggled as this last thought came into my head.
"What!?" He said smiling at me.
"Nothing, don't worry honey. Come on. It's late and I wanna get to bed. I'm flying back to England tomorrow and I need some sleep!"
We got into Edwards rented blue Astin Martin and drove towards my hotel. The music blasted through the speakers and I clutched my head.
"You alright baby?" Edward said finally switching of the music and giving me a worried look.
"No, I have the worst headache!" we pulled out in front of my hotel and I gave him a weak smile.
"Come on babe, I'll walk you to your room." we walked through the hotel we kept our heads hung hoping no one would notice me. No such luck. I groaned as a twelve year old girl came up to me and asked for my autograph.
"I loved your show tonight!" She squealed in one of those I-want-to-kill-you-because-your-so-bloody-annoying American accents.
"Oh! You were there! Well thank you very much for coming I certainly enjoyed myself."
"Can I have your autograph!?" she said obviously trying to hide her excitement (and failing miserably by the way). She held out a copy of my album and I pulled out the permanent marker I always carried with me in case of fan related emergencies (A.K.A a small girl wants my autograph) and singed the CD case.
"Right, it was very nice to meet you… umm…"
"Adrienne" she grinned.
"It was very nice meeting you Adrienne and I'm glad you like my concert but I have to get up to my room now because I'm flying to England tomorrow and I very tired. So good night and I hope I spot you next time I'm here!" She smiled obviously believing I'd actually meant what I had said. I sleepily trudged up to my room, Edward clutching my hand as I did so.
"See ya tomorrow pumpkin. I'll swing by at eight to pick you up ok?" I nodded and he gave me a kiss on the cheek. I watched him walk away and as he turned the corner I opened my door and collapsed onto my bed, not even bothering to change into my pyjamas.
Beep! Beep! Beep! My alarm clock beeped loudly and I punched the snooze button.
"Alright! Alright! I'm up you can stop bloody beeping!" I rolled out of bed and quickly changed into a new outfit. I packed my bag, tidied up my hair and re-did my make up.
I managed to make it down to the lobby to meet Edward with out anyone recognizing me. Unfortunately the same could not be said for the airport. As cameras flashed in our faces we hurriedly boarded the plane. We breathed a sigh of relief as we collapsed into our seats.
I woke up to Edwards heavenly face smiling down at me.
"Babe, we're back." he said gently as I rubbed my eyes. Standing up I took my bag out of the over head compartment. I sleepily got of the plane and stumbled through the airport, ignoring the mass of paparazzi that were snapping pictures of us and shouting things like "Over here Claudine!" "Who are you wearing!?" "How was your flight!?".
We got into my car and Edward speed out of the airport car park leaving the photographers that had followed us outside alone.
"Here we go." Edward said pulling up in front of my house. I was early evening in England and being winter it was pitch black. I got out of the car, not before giving Edward a goodbye kiss, and hauled my luggage out of the boot. I waved goodbye as he drove away and I walked up to my front door. But as I did so I noticed a figure hunched up on my doorstep.
"What the hell!?" I screamed as the figure stood up. Thankfully it was only Lauren. I hadn't seen her in four years. Not since the Christmas we had spent at her and Danny's place. God I hated her. Still. She looked me in the eye and held back tears.
"Claudine," She said in a weak, sad, scared voice, "I need your help."
