(My idea for a Carlos story, tell me if it's worth continuing? )
Carlos sat on the sofa in the tour bus with a smile on his face as he stared down at the screen of his laptop. He chuckled upon hearing his music in the headphones as he read the e-mail over again.
How have you been? How's work? You'll never believe what I just found. Okay I know this will seem totally dorky, a 23 year old listening to this but it's sooooo good trust me! I was with a few friends a couple of days ago and her nephew was listening to this band I have been absolutely hooked! Please give them a try I swear they have absolutely angelic voices and they're not bad!
On a side note, being a secretary is so great. I fetch coffee and I'm looked at like a piece of meat, I'm so glad my Bachelor's in photography has gotten me SOOOOO far in life. LE SIGH.
He had clicked on the link she embedded in the e-mail and was surprised to see a link to them performing Stuck at a live concert. Carlos cracked his fingers and began to quickly type on the keyboard.
I've been great honestly, work is alright, super busy and tiring as usual. I think those guys sound pretty good, you're not a kid for liking them at all, your friend's nephew is a smart guy ;D.
Hey, you just graduated like a year ago, relax! You'll get your big break. Hey you can get me coffee!
LOLOLOL I'm joking don't kill me please.
Carlos sighed and hit send before shutting the lid of his laptop and letting his head fall back to rest on the back of the sofa. What was he doing, exactly? Well since he was about fifteen years old, before the boys had hit their big break, they were all required for their technology class to have a pen-pal. It was this new program the school was using to try and connect kids and experiment with the use of the internet. So at fifteen years of age Carlos Garcia connected with Robin Carver as part of their class projects. After their projects were done the two just decided to continue talking with one another. It was easy keeping in touch, an e-mail only took moments to do. His friends of course would tease him saying that he had a girlfriend over the internet, and Carlos didn't find that funny at all.
Especially since he was starting to really like the girl and knew he could never date her.
The guys were okay with Carlos e-mailing her at first, it was when it started to go on for a long time that they told him to get over it and give it a rest, but Carlos didn't care. He kept it to himself and continued to e-mail her without them noticing so he could write to her in peace without having them make fun of him for liking someone who's face he had never seen before. You'd think that with today's modern technology that they would video-chat or send pictures to one another. However Carlos wasn't sure if he was comfortable doing that, considering he was in Big Time Rush, and if the girl was crazy she could tell everyone all of his personal information and he'd be in huge trouble. She didn't want to video-chat because she was a bit shy and she was worried that if they did, they'd have nothing to talk about and they would just stop talking to one another. They did however, manage to exchange phone numbers, so along with sending e-mails the two would text. They continued to write to each other because there was a certain nostalgia that came along with it, reminding them how they met years before through the internet, and they enjoyed writing to each other.
"Dude you are always on your computer." Logan commented flopping down beside him with his phone. "Why don't you just marry it?"
"It's not legal I already checked!" Carlos retorted, to which Logan shook his head and laughed. Carlos shook his head and felt a vibration in his pocket. He quickly took his phone out and instantly smiled seeing the name flash across the screen.
Get you coffee huh? You think you're funny don't you? Robin wrote to Carlos as she sat at a café in Los Angeles during her lunch break. Robin felt like the hopeless romantic out of her group of friends. Dreaming that one day Carlos would show up at her doorstep as a super sexy guy who a great smile who would sweep her off the feet. The two would have a dream wedding and she wouldn't be a secretary anymore…. Yeah she was a dreamer, and her friends told her it was ridiculous for her to do so. They told her it was probably some 40 year old man who was a pedophile before, but she knew that wasn't the case since she met him through a school program. Still, they said it was unhealthy for her to be so hung up over someone she really never knew. It didn't bother her though, she was a dreamer, and dreams are what keep her going.
I'm kidding! Don't hurt me!
Aw I can't hurt you! Robin chuckled sending her text, and only looked up when she heard someone clear their throat. Her co-worker Eric was a personal assistant, so he too was a bitch-boy. He put the cup of tea in front of her and sat across from her drinking his coffee. "Let me guess, you're texting the e-mail guy, right?"
"His name is Carlos…" She sighed taking a sip, and Eric rolled his eyes.
"You're way too into a dude you've never met before."
"Ummm plenty of people chat online!"
"Yeah but not for that long without meeting each other!"
"He lives in Minnesota what do you want me to do!?" Robin sighed putting her phone on the table top and taking a long soothing drink of tea.
"Drop the guy, if you want to meet someone online then you sign up for a dating website that sets you up with guys in your area! Not dudes in the middle of nowhere!" Eric sipped his coffee before taking a bite out of his doughnut after offering her a bite, which she declined.
" Can't I just have my friend without anyone judging me?"
"Nope." He answered putting an extra emphasis on the 'p', which made Robin shake her head and glance out the window. Her grey-blue eyes stared at everyone outside the café and she couldn't help but realize that everyone seemed to be with someone. Happy, holding hands, smiling all too happily on this blistering August day.
I'll keep that in mind =D Carlos replied back with a smile before sliding his phone back into the pocket of his shorts. He glanced up to see Logan, and now James and Kendall staring down at him with grins on their faces. "What are you looking at…?"
"At someone who is texting with a huge smile on his face." Kendall grinned. "Who's the girl!?"
"Come on tell us!" James urged and Carlos shook his head.
"Really guy's it's no one… it was just an uh…..alert from Auntie Anne's, they're having a pretzel sale." Carlos lied and his three friends sighed, all walking away thinking Carlos was just happy about food.
"We need to get you a girlfriend dude." James said as he opened the mini-fridge." And fast."
