Today was literally gonna be the best day ever; I had been one of the lucky people to buy V.I.P tickets to see Black Veil Brides! They meant the world to me and had helped me through the toughest of times.
Thankfully, it was only in London, this meant only a small train journey. The idea of my mum lingering around would ruin the whole prospect. The tickets said that to meet and greet the band I needed to be there by 3:30. I caught the train at 2:00 getting there at 2:20, this gave me just over an hour to wait, but already the queue was around the corner! I stood in line behind 2 girls who were noisily talking about getting to meet Andy, "His eyes are just perfect though," one called out while the other nodded excitedly in agreement. I laughed to myself silently, oh god, they probably don't even know the names of the other members.
The time quickly passed and the queue was becoming much bigger by the sound of it. Several of us were called in and our V.I.P tickets were checked, my heart starting racing, OMG I was about to meet Black Veil Brides. I felt tears of joy surge to my eyes, no I wasn't gonna cry itd ruin my makeup, and I wasn't gonna meet my favourite band like that. Somehow I had managed to get to the back of the line of meeting BVB. We were taken up some stairs and through quite a few doors, until we stopped and heard a mumbling of voices in the next room. They were right there, in the next room, holy shit!
I clenched my Kerrang! Magazine (that id brought for them to sign) and pulled my camera out of my pocket. The amount of emotions going through me were unbelievable. They were sitting in line in order of Jinxx, CC, Jake, Andy and Ashley. They all sat pens in hands, smiling and talking to us all. I laid my magazine on the table and spoke to them each, this was all unreal. Andy and Ashley were the most talkative; I was given back my magazine but carried on talking to Ashley.
"So how old are you?" He asked.
"19," I replied immediately, wow he was actually showing interest.
"And your name?" He added with a cheeky grin.
"*Your Name*" I answered blushing.
"Aw that's cute, aren't you here with anyone?"
"No, all my friends were busy, but I couldn't miss this!" He starting giggling just as someone bent down and whispered into his ear.
"Sorry darling I have to go, but see you later," he winked, stood up, did a small wave and followed the staff.
After that experience I couldn't wait to see them at the gig, we all got taken back to the queue but were now pushed in at the front. We had an hour til the doors opened; I took a look at my now signed magazine and noticed a small note at the bottom, it read:
Meet me 11pm at the VIP exit.
What?! Who had written this? And Why? Questions erose my mind along with many emotions. The security started checking tickets again before letting us in. The supporting act were good but didnt live up to the amazement of BVB. They had fire going on, fireworks and were generally great. Andy gave a speech about always being yourself no matter what, Ashley played for the crowd and Jake, Jinxx and CC performed to their best.
They finished far too quick for my liking but the thought of meeting someone at 11 sprung my mind! I looked at my phone the time was 10:53, how the fuck was I gonna get to the VIP exit by 11? I sprinted out pushing past everyone in my way, I ran up the flights of stairs, why the fuck were there so many?! Gladly I saw the sign on the door and gave a small tap.
"Hello?" A recognisable answer called out. I knew who this was. Fuck. I forced the door open with excitement. Ashley Purdy sat there, a broad grin on his face.
"Ashley? Did you ask for me to come here?" I asked with a slight stutter, even though I knew the answer. He nodded.
"You enjoy the show?" He questioned, raising his eyebrows.
"Of course." Wow, he was looking fucking sexy now. What was wrong with me? I needed to get myself straight for goodness sake. Why would he want me?
He gestured for me to sit next to him, and of course, I did.
"So, you definatley had a good time?"
"Yeah," a confused expression grew upon my face, he must of noticed because a girlish giggle expelled from between his lips.
"How about we make it even better?" He winked, leaned in closer and placed a hand onto my thigh. I grinned back. Speechless.
