As for me? I don't know what the frig I'm doing...this is BRAND NEW for me, jsyk. My story is not complete (I put the "pro" in procrastination) and I'm afraid it stinks, too. And now that I've done a stellar job of selling it (ha!), I will say that if you do decide to read this, I really, really, really hope you like it and don't feel you wasted your time!

Inspiration for this song comes from one John Mayer. If you hate him, I don't want to hear it. I mean, respect your opinion and all, but, yeah - please don't. I'm posting the lyrics to the song below the chapter so that you can get a feel for what's coming. I may refer to specific lines in the song, or some of the "action" in the song may appear in the story. But I have always adored this song and loved the idea of the young man being the more confident, mature one with conviction.

And now, on with this...whatever this is. Be gentle... Oh, and yeah - it's not beta'd, so I own any and all mistakes you may find.

Oh, and one more thing - Disclaiming, and this will apply to all future chapters (so I will not be posting it again): Stephenie Meyer owns the Twilight universe and all these characters. I'm just...I don't know what I'm doing, but she probably wouldn't like it. ) No copyright infringement is intended with her or with John Mayer.


I'm getting ready for my set, tuning my acoustic, and I see you.

I've been playing in this pub for months. I see all kinds. I've been approached by pretty girls and even the occasional attractive older woman. I've been flirted with by both "plain" and "stunning," and yet no one has sparked my interest. Yet with one look, I can't seem to see anyone but you.

You haven't seen me, yet. But you will. And not just because I'll be playing, either. I'm going to make sure you see me before you leave.

You're maybe not what everyone would call the most beautiful girl in the world, but you are the most beautiful girl in my world so far – there's just something about you. Long, wavy brown hair that shines, porcelain skin, dark eyes, a sexy shape. It all adds up to someone I am desperate to know, and I saw you only two minutes ago.

Something tells me I'm in trouble. I hope you are, too.


Love Soon by John Mayer

I know you've been sworn

I read your complaint

You're needing someone older.

And though I've been warned

To live day by day,

There's something taking over.

Did you expect to kiss me one time

While looking at me with the same eyes ever again?

So come on and face it.

So come on and face it.

It's time that we say it.

You can cross the line whenever you want to,

I'm calling it love soon.

Close your mind and waste some time if you have to,

I'm calling it love soon.

It's not about you now,

It's what we are.

Your mother complains

That you need a man

You haven't mentioned me, yet.

And all of your friends

Don't know who I am

I've been your best-kept secret.

I understand I wasn't part of the plan,

A dollar short, a minute early,

but I am your man.

So come on and face it.

So come on and face it.

It's time that we say it.

(Chorus repeat)

Let's bypass the bullshit

And move on because

The minute hand moves faster than you think it does.

And by no fault of yours,

And by no fault of mine,

The bottom line is laying in

The bed that we've been playing in tonight...we've been playing in tonight.

I'm calling it love soon...

I'm calling it love soon...

You can cross the line whenever you want to, I'm calling it love soon.

Close your mind and waste some time if you have to, I'm calling it love soon.

It's not about you now, it's what we are.

Who's in? I WILL warn you - I have really struggled with not only confidence, but also the flow of words, so it's more than possible that, in light of that (and my concert tomorrow night and Mother's Day) that this story will not complete this weekend. But I DO promise this: I have posted this chapter, which means I will post the story to completion, whenever that may be (but hopefully sooner rather than later). And I won't be this damn wordy in future posts...

xo and love,

Holly
