the week went by pretty fast. Before I knew it I was getting ready for another show. By now I was officially dubbed merch chick. I was set up in a corner. There was a light that shone down like a spot light. We couldn’t figure out how to get it turned off. The stage was so small that the guys hardly fit on it. It funny to watch them perform. After their performance they all sat somewhat near the booth. Trevor ( the guys lighting person. Or the bands personal bitch as he called himself) was talking to me and attempting to cut stickers apart. Mikey kept making faces at me until I finally started making them back to him. He was talking to this girl Madison. Im not sure how she knows the guys but she seems to be pretty close to them all. We started packing up before the last band had finished. Trevor and I carried all the merch stuff to the trailer. It was freezing outside. We hurried back inside as fast as we could and stood talking. Mikey started asking if I was cold and then started talking about the weather.. Ray came up behind me and gave me a hug from behind
“we are gonna head out” he said
“ yeah me too” I said. As we got outside I realized I didn’t have my car keys. My dad had parked my car up here while I was at work so I would have a close parking spot. I called him and had him bring my keys to me. Ray and Trevor were still waiting for Gerard, Mikey and Frank to come outside. They came out shortly after. Gerard and Mikey climbed in the van. Frank waited outside by me.
“ you have a ride”he asked
“yeah I have my car but my dad has my keys. He is bringing them to me” I said
“you cold” he asked as he stood close to me
“yeah its freezing out here” I said we talked a bit about pointless things. Mikey started yelling for me from the van
“ is that him” Frank asked while pointing to my dad’s truck
“ yep that him. Ill see you next week” I said giving him a hug and them running to get my keys.
