While driving home from the arena, Santana had a lot of time to think about what had occurred that night. With the radio down low and her sister in the back seat asleep, Santana had peace and quiet for the long drive. The events that led her from despising Brittany to the lead up to their almost kiss were making Santana's cheeks flush as the thoughts flowed through her mind. Santana couldn't get the image of piercing blue eyes out of her head. Or the way that Brittany emotionally opened up to her and completely changed her self-centered personality.
Santana finally arrived home and her parents were still gone. It was nearing midnight and Santana knew that they would have a long day tomorrow, so she unbuckled her sister from the back seat and carried her up to her room to get some sleep. After, Santana went to her room and tried to fall asleep but the same images kept flowing through her mind. Brittany's smile, her eyes, how vulnerable she looked after the concert, how her whole face and eyes lit up when she would laugh. Santana's eyes finally drooped closed while imagining what the next day would be like.
It was around 6 a.m. when Santana heard footsteps coming towards her door. She was still in mid-dream when she heard the doorknob to her bedroom open up and footsteps running towards her bed.
"Get up! Get up!" Carmen yelled while jumping on top of the lump of covers that was Santana.
"Ugh what do you want midget?" Santana murmured while trying to swat away Carmen.
"Brittany is waiting for us!" Carmen yelled and started clapping her hands excitedly.
Just hearing her name caused a shock to go down Santana's spine. To be honest, Carmen wasn't the only one excited about today.
"Fine go get dressed and I'll go downstairs to make some breakfast. Be ready by 7:30." Santana replied while giving up the extra sleep that she wanted. She figured that seeing Brittany sooner was more important than much needed sleep. With a groan and a stretch, Santana rolled out of bed for one of the most amazing days of her life.
The drive back to the arena was much different than the drive the previous day. This time, Santana was much happier and even let Carmen play a few of Brittany's CDs to pass the time. By the time they got there it was 9:30 in the morning.
Santana entered the arena's parking lot and immediately saw Brittany's big tour bus. She didn't know what she should do. Her and Brittany never discussed where to meet and they couldn't call or text each other because she didn't get Brittany's number. God Santana you almost kiss the girl and you can't even get her number? Santana thought to herself and shook her head with a smile. Her inner monologue was broken however, when out of the corner of her eye she saw flailing in the back seat. She turns back and sees Carmen pointing with wide eyes.
"Over there! That's her tour bus over there!"
"I know that Squirt. I just don't know if she's in there or not. I don't know where we are supposed to meet. "
"Just park somewhere and we can walk around a little bit. Try to see if we can see her anywhere."
Santana had no other ideas so he followed her sister's orders. Before they got out of the car they put the "Authorized Personnel" passes around their necks that Brittany gave them last night, just in case they ran into security. On their way towards Brittany's tour bus, a woman with red hair walked pass them wearing the same lanyard that Santana had on.
"Excuse me, do you know where Brittany Pierce is?" Santana called out to the stranger.
The lady turned around and met Santana's eyes.
"I'm sorry dear, but the meet and greets don't start until a few hours." She replied nicely.
"Oh no, we're not here for a meet and greet. We're Brittany's...friends?" Santana replied hesitantly. She didn't know what Brittany would refer to them as. "We met her last night and she invited us to spend the day with her today."
"Oh my gosh! You must be Santana! I'm Liz, Brittany's manager. She couldn't stop talking about you and your sister after she met you two last night." She pulled Santana into a hug that surprised Santana, she wasn't expecting such a warm greeting. But by the time that the shock of the hug wore off, Liz was already letting go. "I shouldn't keep you guys any longer. Britt is in her tour bus but she still might be asleep. She's not an early riser. Feel free to just chill out on the bus for a while, it should be unlocked. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to attend to some matters regarding tonight's show. It was nice to meet you girls!" Liz finishes while turning around and walking away.
Santana grabbed her little sister's hand and led her to the side of the tour bus. She felt awkward just entering Brittany's tour bus. Should she knock? No, because Liz said that she still may be asleep. And she knows she isn't going to stand outside all day and wait for Brittany to come out, so she finally decided to just risk it and enter the bus.
With the turn of a knob, her and her sister are met with the sight of one of the most luxurious places that they have ever seen. A gasp was heard from next to Santana, that was most likely Carmen gawking at the guitars that were lined up on one of the walls of the bus. Santana decided to actually step up into the bus instead of just looking at it from afar. After she climbed the three steps that led her up into the bus, a gasp actually escaped her lips. To the left there was a space that looked like a lounge. Two couches ran up the sides of the bus and a huge sound system was placed in between them. To the right was the drivers area which had huge leather seats. The back portion of the bus was filled with several bunks and a small bathroom. Santana guessed that, that was where Brittany's band must have slept. But much to her surprise, her and Carmen were the only ones on the bus. Santana looked further beyond the bunk beds and could see that some of the back portion of the bus was blocked by a sliding door. Luckily for Santana, the door wasn't closed all the way and she could see a head of blonde hair that was most likely Brittany.
"Okay Squirt here's what we're going to do. You and I are just going to sit and wait in the lounge until Brittany gets up. Judging by the sight of blonde hair over, my guess is that she's still asleep. We have to be quiet though, we don't want to wake her up."
"Okay fine." Carmen replied with a roll of her eyes as she plopped down on one of the couches and began playing on her ipod.
Santana decided to take out her phone too, to help pass the time. She plugged in her headphones and started to listen to some of Brittany's music that she downloaded late last night. It was about half an hour later, when Santana gets startled by someone pulling her headphones off her head. Surprised, Santana turned around quickly, but couldn't stop her heart from beating fast after looking right into the ocean blue eyes that she had missed so much.
"I heard that she sounds even better when you see her live. Especially when you see her sexy body moving on stage with the music." Brittany replied with a small grin.
Santana's smile instantly fell from her face. Was Brittany really going back into being a conceited person after just one day?
Brittany could see the discomfort on Santana's face and immediately laughed.
"Oh my gosh! It was a joke! I swear I'm not like that with you anymore!" Brittany laughed nervously, hoping that she didn't scare Santana away.
"HA HA you're so funny." Santana remarks with a roll of her eyes and a sarcastic tone to her voice.
"You know it." Brittany told Santana with a wink.
Oh my god we are flirting. Brittany S. Pierce and I are actually flirting! Santana thinks to herself, but before she can think of a witty comment to throw back at Brittany, Brittany is already on the couch next to Carmen.
"What's up Name? Oh, wait I mean Carmen!" Brittany asks her little sister while rubbing the top of Carmen's head affectionately.
Carmen immediately jumps up and wraps her arms around Brittany's midsection. "I missed you so much!" she squealed to Brittany.
"Woah, we just saw each other like ten hours ago.' Brittany replies while returning the hug.
"Yeah, you should know by know that Carmen is a one of your biggest stalkers and she like literally can not let go of you since you guys met." Santana said to Brittany, obviously trying to embarrass her sister.
"Shut up Santana! She's lying Brittany! I'm totally not obsessed with you!" Carmen hastily told Brittany.
"Don't worry about it kiddo. Like I said last night, I think you're adorable." Brittany replied. "I'm going to go change real quick and then our tour can begin!"
Brittany began leading the girls all around and throughout the arena. Brittany and Santana would take turns giving each other sly glances. When one would catch the other one person staring, they would both blush and immediately look away. All throughout the tour, the two girls' hands would continously brush against each other. But neither of them would try to make more contact with each other. By the end of the tour, Carmen got her shirt signed by all of Brittany's band members and Santana got a new case of butterflies in her stomach. Unfortunately, the tour finally had to finally come to an end because Brittany had to go do meet and greets. But before the girls departed from each other, Brittany told both of the girls to meet her in her dressing room a half hour before the show. The girls agreed and left after giving Brittany each a hug.
Santana and Carmen easily got backstage with the help of their passes. The door to Brittany's dressing room was closed when they got to it. Santana knocked and couldn't help but remember the last time that she was there to apologize to Brittany. Before Santana had the chance to dwell on her memories, the door opened and Brittany stood before her, in the same two piece green outfit that she wore last night. All words and saliva left Santana's mouth upon seeing Brittany that close up with so little clothes on. A slight tug on her hand caused Santana to follow her sister into Brittany's room, but not before checking to make sure that she was not drooling first. After having casual conversation with Brittany for twenty minutes, Brittany was called out of her dressing room to get ready for the show.
On her way out, Brittany grabbed Santana's and Carmen's hands and said, "I almost forgot to tell you guys, but you can stand on the side of the stage tonight to watch me perform. There's no better seats in the house."
Carmen started to squeal and jump up and down. "C'mon just follow me." Brittany said while leading the way to the stage. The screams of thousands of people started to get louder and louder the closer they got to the stage.
Santana almost missed it because of the opening notes to Brittany's song and the screams of the crowd, but luckily for her and Brittany, Santana heard Brittany loud and clear when she leaned over to Santana and asked, "Will you go on a date with me?"
Santana's eyes grew wide with excitement and she immediately responded with a nod of her head and a shaky "Yeah." Brittany then leaned over and brushed another kiss to Santana's cheek, but before anything else could happen Brittany was already running up on stage. Santana dragged a hand through her hair and blew out a deep breath, trying to get her heart rate and breathing back to normal.
"This is the best night of my life!" Carmen screamed while watching Brittany perform.
"Yeah Squirt it's the best night of my life too." Santana replied with an absolute love struck expression upon her face. "The absolute best."
