Post with 4 notes
It had been 3 weeks and I hadn’t heard from her, I was desperate to call her but I didn’t want to seem pushy. I really liked her, even just the few hours we spent together, there was just something drawing me to her. I leaned back in my chair, I was sat out on the balcony of the hotel with my laptop on my knee and a gin and tonic in my hand.
We were in Germany for the week, for a change we actually only had 2 gigs to do. One tomorrow night and the other on Saturday, which meant we had 3 days in between of doing nothing but relaxing and sight seeing.
I then decided to try find if she had twitter, see if there was any sign of her even liking me? I knew she was a fan, she seemed shocked when she turned around to see me when I went after her to return her purse… But maybe she wasn’t interested in me, maybe Theo was the one she liked. I wouldn’t be surprised.
I had her email address, I couldn’t pluck up the guts to email her though, I was scared of rejection, which is why I had to see if there was a chance with her. I mean, she didn’t pull away when I kissed her, so that must mean something?
I typed her address into twitter and up popped her profile, I couldn’t believe my luck. She didn’t tweet a lot by the looks of things. But the newest one caught my eye, my stomach started swirling with excitement, I couldn’t believe it. It said she was coming to Germany… Tomorrow! With her family for a weeks holiday.
I had to see her, I just had to. If I did meet her again I would be sure to know if she was interested too or not. The fact she was coming to Germany where I was… Was it fate? Nah, I don’t believe in that kind of stuff… Or do I?
I then didn’t waste any time, I wrote out a text. Hi there Tina, how are you? I’m sorry I haven’t gotten in touch earlier, I’ve been pretty busy. We should meet up when you come to Germany, I’m here right now, for the week. Adam x
I’m away to press send, but I then realize that she would probably freak out that I know she’s coming to Germany, I don’t want to look like some sort of stalker or perv. Hi there Tina, how are you? I’m sorry I haven’t gotten in touch earlier, I’ve been pretty busy. Adam x
I decided to leave it at that and see what happens, try and get the conversation flowing first.
I didn’t have to wait long before she replied. Hey Adam! I’m good thanks how are you? It’s fine, I’ve been pretty busy too :) How’s touring going? Where about are you now? x
I let out a sigh of relief, the way she was asking where I was, gave me hope that she was interested. I’m fine thankyou. It’s going pretty good, in Germany this week, luckily only have two gigs to do so have a few days in between of relaxing! What are you up to?
I pressed send, then I waited… and waited… and waited. It was about ten minutes later before my phone buzzed again. I wasn’t sure if the time she took to reply was a good thing or not.
Germany, really? I’m going there tomorrow for the week with my family… Where about are you playing?
This was good, I hoped she was hoping to come along to the show now. I felt like a kid at Christmas, excited and waiting to see what Santa would bring, only I was waiting to see what Tina would say.
We’re playing in Dusseldorf. Where are you staying?
This reply was quick, unlike the last one. I’m staying in Berlin, is that near Dusseldorf? (I have no geography skills at all)
I laughed, unfortunately it wasn’t near it… But I would easily go over and see her one of the days… Or maybe two.
lol, don’t worry mine isn’t the greatest either. Unfortunately it’s about 5 hours away. But if you like we could still meet up? I’m free Wednesday,Thursday and Friday. If you’d like to that is?
Again this time she takes a little while to reply, but maybe she is busy packing, since she is leaving tomorrow.
If you’re sure it’s not too much bother? 5 hours is quite a journey. But I would love to see you again :)
Of course it’s no bother, I will jump on a train which will take half the time. I will give you a call or text on Wednesday when I’m heading over. If Wednesday is alright for you?
Yep it’s perfect, will see you then! xx
A big smile creeps across my face, I’m going to see her again, on Wednesday. It really was perfect. I then realized I was still on her twitter page on my laptop, I was away to close it but it said ‘1 new tweet’ I was intrigued so I opened it. It melted my heart when I seen what is said.
Really looking forward to my Germany trip now, it will be extra special.
My smile then grew even bigger, but I jumped as my phone rang. Theo’s name flashed on the screen, I was a little disappointed as for some strange reason I thought it might have been Tina.
'Hi mate, what's up?'
'Hi, just wondering if you want to go grab a few drinks at the bar and eye up some girls?'
'Yeah sure, though I will pass on the eyeing up girls part.'
'Oh, really? Mr Anderson passing on a chance to check out some fit girls? Are you ill or something?'
'Nope, but I have already eyed up someone.'
'Oh really? Spill the beans then?'
'Yep really, I will tell you about her at the bar. Will be down in five.'
'Alright see you there mate.'
I get downstairs and walk into the bar, Theo is standing there waiting and grinning away. I go and stand next to him and order a drink.
'Come on then, tell me. Who's this girl then?'
'Hmm… Not really no?'
'In London, I walked her to the train station, she joined us for an hour or so for drinks?'
'Oh yeah her! She was hot.'
I glared at Theo and shook my head smiling.
'Well, she's coming to Germany tomorrow for the week, so I'm going to meet up with her on Wednesday.'
'Really? I thought you liked her, the way you went out of your way to make her feel comfortable, not like you. I should have known you wouldn't let her go easy.'
'You know me too well.'
'You really like her don't you?'
'What do you mean?'
'Well, I haven't seen you constantly grinning for this long before.'
'Shut it you. I dunno, I mean I have only met her once, but I felt like we connected? There's something drawing me to her. Whether she's interested in me or not is the question.'
'I'm sure if you work your Anderson charm you will have her in your bed within minutes.'
'Theo!' I snarled at him.
This was typical Theo, always thinking I was just after one thing… I mean sometimes yeah the odd fling, but I did have a heart.
'It's not like that with her… I mean, yeah I would obviously love to as she is very beautiful… But I feel different about her. More emotionally attached. Oh I don't know, it's stupid, I've only known her for two hours.'
'I know what you mean, just wait and see what happens on Wednesday. You never know.'
'Yeah. You never know…' I said the last part quietly and took another sip of my drink.
'So do you know where you're going to take her yet?'
His question hit me hard, I hadn’t even thought about that.
'Umm. No, I haven't even thought about that to be honest.'
'Also what are you going to wear?'
'Theo what the hell is this? Theo Hutchcraft's guide to dating?'
'I'm only asking, you're my mate I want to make sure you hit it of right, on your first date.'
He said in defense. I wasn’t even sure if this was a date, or just generally meeting up.
'Oh, and you're the master of dates are you? And wait a minute, this isn't my first date.'
I punched him in the arm and scowled at him. He just laughed again and patted my shoulder.
'I'm only kidding, but it has been a while since you've really wanted to impress a girl, am I right or am I right?'
'You're right…' I grumbled.
'I'm just going to be myself and see what happens, there's no point on being someone I'm not.'
'Exactly, you will be fine champ.'
I hoped I would be, I had never felt nervous about meeting a girl before, I was normally so confident. Tina had really gotten under my skin.
I just hoped on Wednesday my confidence would return again. I was sure it would, I was still getting over the shock that I was going to see her again. Everything would be fine on Wednesday. I just had that feeling.
