[size=120]
Personality: Emma is a sweet person who will do anything for her friends, she tries to help anyway she can and can make friends with anyone even if they have just met. She is very passionate about music and loves nothing more than jamming out or even writing a new song. She stands up for her friends and will even go far enough to swing a few punches if necessary.
History: Emma had a pretty much normal growing up really, her parents split up when she was around five but it was no big deal to her. Emma moved in with her dad and he introduced her to the music she loves now. For her 12 birthday her dad got her a drum set and she pretty much taught herself learning to create beats and play along to music. Her entrance into the band was a simple one at that she turned up for an audition played the hardest song she could think of and then she was in and has never looked back. Plus she was good friends with the keyboardist so she may have had a little shoe in on that front. But she had been good friends with the band members having gone through school with them. Emma loves designing the merch for the band and wears most of the hoodies that she has created often with cartoon animals and funny phrases.

With all the drama that's going on Emma doesn't know what to think, she hopes that the band isn't going to change because she loves her friends dearly. And loves their music.

So begins...

Hmm… Warm…
That was the first thing Viv felt when she woke up. She was all curled up under a soft blanket, and there was… something else that was making her feel so warm. She shifted slowly; it was almost instinctive for her to move carefully. Why? Her legs moved and she squirmed… She still wasn’t sure what this thing was. It was practically wrapped around her considering the warmth was also around her neck, shoulders, and back. Rather reluctantly, she opened her eyes. The harsh, artificial light of the inside of her bus hurt her eyes. It took all of her willpower not to shut them again.
After they had adjusted to the brightness of the room, Viv looked down at the warm thing… Oh… its.. Emma… Oh.

This was perfectly fine, of course. The others wouldn’t mind or anything. Her eyes fluttered shut once more and she began to doze off again… But this was.. extreme warmth. She felt Emma’s hands on her bare back, radiating a comforting heat. Wait… B-bare back? When did my shirt come off?! This also would not be that much of a problem. It wasn’t too uncommon to see Viv strutting around the bus with just a sports bra on, but the bra she was wearing now was far from a sports bra. She glanced down and noticed she had lost her sweat pants as well. She was left in just her undergarments.

The sound of Nico and Roni moving around jolted her even farther into awareness. The two girls were snuggled together on one of the bunks. Her arms, which were curled around Emma’s waist, tightened. She hugging the girl hard, as if she was trying to hide her cloth-lessness despite the fact that they were mostly covered with a blanket. “E-emma…” She whispered, a deep seated blush spreading across her cheeks. W-wait… we didn’t.. we couldn’t have… the others are here… O-oh my… She buried her face in the crook of Emma’s neck.

Everything was so cosy and comfortable Emma had found a fantastic sleeping position and barely noticed when Viv climbed into her bunk and snuggled up to her. Viv had nightmares every now and then so she must have got in sometime in the night, so it was no surprise that she came to Emma. Emma was a deep sleeper anyway she could fall asleep pretty much anywhere which was good for the long trips and travelling they did as a group.

Emma stirred a little when she was squeezed, but it wasn't a painful squeeze. Her eyes fluttered open and she broke into a smile " Mornin'" she wispered breaking into a smile. Lifting her hand she brushed a lock of hair from Viv's forehead and placed in behind her ear taking a moment to gaze into her eyes. Emma often wondered if Viv really knew how beautiful she was. " You have a nightmare again? You know I don't mind you climbing in with me if something bothers you." She added running a hand through her tangles mess of hair.

She stretched her arms and legs as best she could, the bunks were nice and big unlike there first tour where the bunks were almost coffin size. He saw the clothes at the bottom of the bunk, her own pijama bottoms with Viv's were bundled together. She had to think breifly, they would have known if something had happen between them it was a hard thing to miss.

Emma was just so… tender. And kind. Viv was so embarrassed. She had gotten herself in this situation. Although deciding to climb into Em’s bed after having a nightmare at 2 AM was a decision she made out of pure fear, it was still a decision she made. The way that the other blonde played with Viv’s hair only made her cheeks turn a brighter scarlet.

"Mornin'. You have a nightmare again? You know I don't mind you climbing in with me if something bothers you." Her was a smooth as silk and just as soft.

Viv nodded, her gaze averted so she was glaring at the wall. She couldn’t stare into Em’s eyes. It would only make her blush even more. “Yeah… it was pretty scary…” She grumbled quietly. “I feel a little better now…” Viv added, leaning forward to rest her head on Em’s shoulder. “Though I’m still kinda scared…” She squeezed her eyes shut and clung to Emma like a child to its mother. Images from her nightmare ran through her consciousness, almost like some sort of taunting recap.

Viv let out a quiet whine from deep in her throat. Both of her legs wrapped around one of Em’s; her arms coiling around the other girl’s shoulders to hold onto her tighter. Vivi’s entire body was extremely tense, and she was shivering with fright. She sniffled softly, her nose pressed to Em’s neck, and her cheek and chin was against Emma’s sternum.

Emma's heart felt for Viv as she explained about her nightmare " Yeah it's was pretty scary, I feel a little better now. Though I'm still kinda scared" Emma eyes softened slightly feeling bad for her friend.

As Viv moved to hold onto her Emma wrapped her arms around her, rubbing her back slowly Emma kissed Viv's head softly" It's okay. It's all over know. Don't worry I will keep you safe. Anything tries to hurt you I'll kick its ass. " she laughed softly and played with the back of Viv's head. Her fingers playing with her hair as well as massaging her head.

" you know what? I think there is a pancake place around here somewhere, do you fancy going to get some fatty pancakes with a hell of a load of syrup dumped on it. Or we can just stay here in our underwear and do nothing" Emma smiled softly resting her head on top of Viv's. To tell the truth she would love to stay with Viv and holding her close, Viv was nice to cuddle.

"It's okay. It's all over now. Don't worry, I will keep you safe. Anything tries to hurt you I'll kick its ass." Em was so sweet. So kind. She made Viv feel genuinely safe...

“O-ok…” Viv said under her breath, hiccuping through quiet sobs. “Thanks Em…” She mumbled against the other girl’s neck.

“You know what? I think there is a pancake place around here somewhere, do you fancy going to get some fatty pancakes with a hell of a load of syrup dumped on it? Or we can just stay here in our underwear and do nothing.”

Letting out a small hum, Viv lifted her head up so they were at eye level now. Her eyes were still a little watery from crying. “Thanks for the offer but… they others are here right now.. I’d feel bad just ditching them for pancakes. I appreciate the offer though.” She flashed a shy smile, the blush on her cheeks still lingering. A sudden idea popped into her head; her face flushed and she looked away. “I-I know what would make me feel better…” Viv muttered under her breath. She waited for a questioning, curious look to appear on Em’s face. “A-a… a kiss…” Her whispered, her voice practically inaudible.

Emma smiled as Viv started to calm down she wasn't crying as much anymore, which was a good sign. Emma rubbed Viv's back only stopping when Viv pulled her head away to talk to her.

"Thank's for the offer but, the others are here right now. I'd feel bad just ditching them for pancakes. I appreciate the offer though." She paused briefly before continuing " I-I know what would make me feel better...A-..a kiss"


Emma's smile suddenly dropped and she looked down slightly, she giggled shyly " well that's certainly a difference compared to pancakes" she laughed lightly " but definatly sweeter than pancakes" Emma smiled. She sort of froze a little Viv never really asked her to kiss her before, not properly there was the odd peck on the cheek and at most briefly on the lips. Emma had thought about it to be honest and now Viv had brought it up.

Emma brushed another strand of hair from Viv face holding her cheek with one hand gently and leaned in slowly, pressing her lips gently on Viv's she pulled her close with her free arm.

Roni didn't look up when she heard the knock on the door. Either someone was coming to confront her or someone was coming to tell her everything was okay. But really was it? What kind of jerk would make something like this up? She loved her friends and would never betray them. She bit her lip when she heard Nico. He was one of her closest friends within the band. He was probably the one she wanted to believe in her the most.

"I don't believe that shit, for the record, and even if I did, who cares if you do solo stuff?" He said to her.

ImageImage
Her green eyes met his brown ones. It felt like a weight had been listed off her chest. "But you know, I wouldn't be doing this type of thing if it wasn't for the band. I have no interest in going solo. I only tried out for the band because of-" She stopped short in case someone was listening in. "Well, you know..." Her cheeks were now red. She looked down at her notebook again. She closed her eyes and rested her temple against his shoulder. "Thank you though. It means a lot that you believe me."

"What are you working on? Need help?" Nico asked.

ImageImage
She snorted, not opening her eyes when he asked what she was working on. She held out her notebook to him where she had been scribbling down harsh words of a poem about how rumors could turn lives upside down. "I just needed to vent I guess." She laughed, looking up at him. "You can try to help but I doubt we could make this into a hit song. Then again with our skillz we could pull it off." She teased, bumping her shoulder with his.

Roni bit her a lip, wondering if the others had heard the rumor yet. "Have... you talked to the others yet?" She asked him softly.

"Well that's certainly different compared to pancakes." Emma laughed lightly, causing Viv’s cheeks to practically glow red with embarrassment. She looked down, once against averting her gaze from Emma’s. "But definitely sweeter than pancakes."

Viv looked back up at Em, her eyes wide with hope. Em’s slow, gentle movements made her heart swell. The other blonde pushed another bit of her hair to the side tucking it behind her ear. Her warm fingers brushed against her ear lobe, sending a shiver down her spine. Her ears, along with the sides of her neck, were her weak points.

“Y-you don’t have to if…-” She was cut off as Emma leaned forward. Viv found herself in shock, frozen in time. W-wait, she’s actually going to…-? She found herself once again torn from her thoughts by the feeling of Em’s warm lips pressed to her own.

Viv quickly found herself lost in that moment. The two spent a few seconds simply testing the waters before the kiss progressed into something more passionate. Her arms tightened around Em’s shoulders, pushing the girl’s entire body against her own. Viv felt as if there was a fire in her belly. She was just so warm, her skin tingled and her mind went blank. Her breathing was growing heavier and heavier, and the fuzziness that clogger her thinking was only growing more intense. Every exhale lead to a quiet, muffled moan.

Inhaling sharply through her nose, Viv scraped up all of her willpower and pulled away. The blue in her eyes had grown darker with arousal. But she took a few deep breaths and swallowed hard. “S-sorry… its j-just.. the others… what if they…” She trailed off, shuffling awkwardly next to Emma.

Roni continued to rest against Nico. He might not have voiced all of his secrets but she had been able to guess them. She hated that he thought he needed those drugs to make him feel better but she knew it would hurt him if she brought it up. So she took care of him. If she heard word there was a drug dealer around, she'd make the security guards go and send them away and if they didn't go willingly they got arrested. She was fine with his pot use but she hated him getting into anything heavier. She couldn't stop it all, but she tried. When he got too wasted, she took care of him. She helped keep it a secret from the others but it was getting harder and harder to do. They were best friends. They'd take care of each other. She trusted him with her secret.

She smiled, letting him adjust to sit up. She watched him start scribbling away. Had she not known him for ten years it would have been unreadable

"Come on, you know vent songs make some of our best work." He said.


ImageImage
She smirked and nodded. "Yeah that's true. But you don't think this could just be so generic? I mean, don't most bands have a 'fuck you paparazzi'?"[/b] She asked him. She hummed softly, trying to come up with a melody for their song. She reached over and grabbed a binder that they kept song sheets in and another pen. She started jotting down a few things. She glanced over at the sheet he was working on. She nodded along at the changes he was making. [i]"Oooh, I like that change." She said, pointing to one of his notes.

Glancing at him, she listened to him. "Nah, I haven't talked to anyone since we left stage last night, uh, stuff hasn't really lined up." She frowned at that. She knew better. Plenty of things had lined up but he had chosen to stay away. She couldn't help wonder if there was anything she could do to make everything easier on him. "But I bet everyone else feels the same. We love you. We trust you. We won't think anything came from your mouth 'til we heard it ourselves."

ImageImage
Roni nodded but wasn't sure what to say to that. Would they all really be that understanding? Would they all just know she'd never do anything like that? "I hope they all me know me as well as you." Smiling at him, she tucked a free curl behind her ear. "I'm worried that Chayton might now be so... understanding."

She bit her lip. This wasn't exactly the first time something like this happened. Roni was always so nervous around Chayton that she didn't always fully open up to him. Around the time, they were first starting getting big Roni started dating a guitarist who didn't have a band. Chayton had seemed so sure that she was just going to up and leave them that it started several fights.

"I don't want this to be like last time, you know? She sighed then jumped at the sound of Chayton's voice. She blushed, staring at him. "Yeah?" She prayed he hadn't heard what they were talking about. "What's up?" She hoped he hadn't heard the news.

Everything seemed to build up intensely, as the pairs lips started to move together slowly as first but eventually they found a rhythm full of passion and want. Emma's hands ran down Viv's back holding onto her thigh, a few longing moments of groaning, the heat between the two was like the sand.

Before long Viv pulled away apologising to Emma she was worried about the others and Emma nodded slowly in understanding her heart racing and her breath releasing in small breaths.

" yeah.." She whispered swallowing slowly, she paused at the sound of a tv being turned on in one of the bunks Chayton must be awake. Emma kissed Viv's lips softly and briefly. " we better get dressed" she mumbled although she didn't want to let Viv go.

"Yeah.."

The feeling of skin against skin had just been too much for Viv. She knew if she hadn’t ended it there, she would have kept going and going, unable to stop. Now that she thought about it, the bunk wasn’t a very good place for… it. Not to mention the thought of one of her bandmates finding them like that made her face flush. Thank God I had stopped it there...

Another tender kiss from Em shocked Viv out of her inner thoughts. "We better get dressed."

“Yeah, I’ll grab our clothes…” Viv said quietly as she ducked under the blankets. She squirmed and reached towards the bottom half of the bed, grasping for their pajamas. Once she had manages to grab them, she began to worm her way back up before pausing. She devised an evil plan… Trying to resist the urge to giggle, she did start moving about under the covers. She positioned herself, and as she moved up, inch by inch, she left a trail of soft, butterfly kisses again Em’s skin. She started at the girl’s upper thigh, went over her hip, up her stomach, over her chest, up the side of her neck, and across her jaw line. She stopped at her destination, Em’s lips. She kissed them firmly before pulling away once more. There was a grin etched across Viv’s lips.

“Here are your pjs.” She purred, her smirk not leaving her face. Viv handed Em her pjs while she began to put on her own. She wiggling into her sweatpants and pulled her tank top.

Emma smiled as Viv offered to get the clothes from the end of the bunk. She rested her head back on the pillow, supporting her head with her arm tucked neatly behind it. She nearly jumped out of her skin when she felt a soft trail of kisses work up from her thigh and across her stomach, at this point Emma moaned/laughed in pleasure her stomach was very sesitive to other people's tocuh and Viv was being so gentle. She arched her back a little as Viv found her way up to her chest and to her neck and finally to her lips. She returned the kiss and couldn't help but giggle at the grin on Viv's face. " Cheeky"

Emma got dressed slowly be distracted by watching Viv getting dressed, she pulled back the curtain of her bunk and hopped out. Her legs a little like jelly she held her hand out and helped Viv out of the bunk too. Pulling her to her slowly Emma hugged her softly, kissing her neck a few times quickly " Come on let's see if there's any breakfast anywhere, I fancy some cereal or some chocolate milk. I wonder if my dads flying in for the show in a few days time" Emma started to ramble on as they got to the kitchen. Releasing Viv's hand Emma busied herself with searching through the cupboards they would probably make a run to the store soon to buy another load of groceries for the next trip.

Viv waited patiently as Emma got herself dressed. She watched with interest, inspecting Em’s every movement. She let Em hop out of the bed first, and took her hand to help her out. She hadn’t expected her to hug her close and kiss the side of her neck. Viv let out a quiet squeal and practically fell against Em. Her neck was her weak spot, and Emma had discovered it. She blushed furiously as the other girl pulled away to walk towards the kitchen. "Come on let's see if there's any breakfast anywhere, I fancy some cereal or some chocolate milk. I wonder if my dads flying in for the show in a few days time."

Viv puffed up her cheeks and crossed her arms stubbornly. She was still embarrassed. However, she still followed the other blonde to the kitchen. She watched as she rummaged through the cupboards. “Hmm… I don’t think I’ve ever met your dad officially. If he does fly to our next show, make sure to introduce him to me.” Viv smiled warmly. She jumped up as she saw a familiar reddish-orange box in one of the cabinets. Lunging forward, she snatched the box out. “Yay, Captain Crunch!” She smiled. Bouncing over to another cabinet, she grabbed a bowl, opened the box, and found nothing but disappointment. She frowned, her brow furrowing. “Aww…” She had been so excited… Captain Crunch was her favorite…

Her sadness was overcome by anger. Viv wasn’t sure how many times she had opened and box of cereal and found nothing. “Pour l'amour de merde…” She cursed in French, a habit of hers. She turned on her heel and stomped over to the main bedroom, where she had heard the others talking before, with the empty box in hand.

“Alright, which one of you sons of- whoa.” She froze, her grip on the box loosening. “What’s with all the morbid faces? Did someone die ‘r something?” She asked, her gaze nervously sweeping the room.

Emma turned briefly at the quick flash of movement from Viv as she grabbed a box of cereal that seemed to be empty, Viv pulled a funny face and cursed in French then finally stormed off. Emma eventually found a box of Lucky Charms that was close to empty anyway, picking up a bowl she dumped the contents of the box into the bowl as well as a good measure of milk.

Then there was the sound of shuffling then as if on cue the little minx of a cat came barraging through the kitchen and off to somewhere else. Finding a clean spoon Emma walked into the lounge area seeing Nico talking to Viv.

"There are rumors going around of Roni making solo stuff, or switching over to solo work, and,like most rumors, they're the farthest thing from true"

Emma took a seat on the couch and ate a few spoonfuls of cereal before making her point heard. " well i'm calling BS on that one, if Roni was doing that she would have talked to us first. Probably an outside source that they are calling an inside source. I see Bagheera scratched your head up, I think he is part monkey" Emma laughed softly and continued to eat.

The second that Viv walked into the room, chaos erupted. Nico was flailing this way and that, scattering Roni’s paper’s everywhere and running into people. She opened her mouth to speak, but was quickly cut off as Nico grabbed her, turned her around, and pushed her out of the room. “Hey!” She stumbled out of the room into the main area once more. She scowled as Nico plopped down onto a couch.

"There are rumors going around of Roni making solo stuff, or switching over to solo work, and, like most rumors," Nico gave her his best smile, "They're the farthest thing from true."

Viv’s face was expressionless as she processed this information. “Oh…”

"Well I'm calling BS on that one, if Roni was doing that she would have talked to us first. Probably an outside source that they are calling an inside source. I see Bagheera scratched your head up, I think he is part monkey." Em walked over, bowl of cereal in hand, and sat besides Nico.

“I agree with Em. She’s also… just not that kind of person, y’know.” Viv shrugged. She looked down at Em and noticed she was eating Lucky Charms. “Aw… was that last of it?” She kneeled down in front of Em, resting her chin on the other girl’s knees. She pouted, giving Em the most adorable puppy dog face she could muster. It consisted of the wide, watery eyes and soft whine. “Can I have some…?” She whimpered, gazing up at Em.

Nico greeted Emma with a wave and another smile and started to feel like he was stitching himself together. He was momentarily reminded of that feeling that things were only going to get worse and that having the entire band around him was exactly what he'd been trying to avoid for the past twenty-four hours.

"Well I'm calling BS on that one, if Roni was doing that she would have talked to us first. Probably an outside source that they are calling an inside source. I see Bagheera scratched your head up, I think he is part monkey," Emma responded before Viv had a chance to. She sat beside him and Nico rolled his eyes, he gave that little convincing smile-laugh he was so good at while he ran his fingers down the scratches on the back of his neck.

"She is full cat, thanks," Nico jokingly corrected, still smiling, "But yeah, total BS."

After Viv shared her agreement, as well, Nico watched her and Emma do their thing. They'd been doing this, this almost-flirting thing, for long enough to let Nico notice it. He was honestly just starting to wonder when the paparazzi would, or the gossip columnists, and more importantly he was beginning to wonder why everyone in the band was suddenly (or not so suddenly) leaning toward each other in such romantic ways while Nico himself seemed to be the last man standing.

(And maybe, he thought, it might actually be time for him to try to get into the whole 'getting together with people' scene himself, he wasn't getting any younger. But that, of course, would mean the all-encompassing topic of 'coming out' and more importantly, finding someone willing to put up with him.)

All of that, combined and in addition to his previous doldrums, meant Nico was becoming less and less inclined to stick around to watch his bandmates climb all over each other. They could have the bus. He hoisted himself up from the couch and smiled, shrugging at the two of them.

"Well, crisis averted with you two then, you might wanna check on Roni and Chayton in a few minutes to make sure he's not too angry. We're not playing tonight, are we? If we are, someone text me a couple hours ahead of time, or text me if anyone wants to smoke up I guess. I'm gonna see if I can't track down some food and something strong to drink," Nico said, firm, not letting Viv or Em get a word in edgewise. He took the few backward steps off the bus, then turned around and started walking toward the stage and the vendors around it. His hand was going for his pocket wen he ran straight into a girl he knew.

He smelled like leather; one of the few things that Sienna had not gotten used to on the road was knowing how band members smelled. Nico blinked down at her, and then smiled a huge smile Sienna was more than used to. Of all five band members, Nico was perhaps Sienna's least favorite; she didn't know how to connect to him and something about him just seemed incessantly fake. She wished he wouldn't act like he was happy all the time if he wasn't. That said, she didn't necessarily dislike him.
"Hey Nico," she chirped.

"Hey, I'd love to stay and chat, but if you don't mind, I'm hungry as hell," he responded, and she gestured with an open hand, he just turned and immediately walked off the other direction. She could just see scratches down the back of his neck. He was weird. Sienna really wasn't sure if she even liked him. There were two explanations for the scratches; his cat, which was more likely, or the story Sienna was certain the paparazzi would go with if anyone noticed them; he was turning into one of those band guys who sleep with whatever woman they can find and leave her for the next city when their tour dates take them out of the town, and who like to get rough while doing it.

She turned away and continued her path toward the equipment van, shoving his extra basses and a backup guitar for Chayton back into their rightful places. She shrugged, then, leaning against the van and lighting a misty 120 while she thought. She took a long drag and let the smoke trickle from her lips after inhaling.

Sienna was inclined to believe the latter about Nico, but she was a little worried about what the press might say, what with Roni's rumor already flying. If the gossip journalists could capitalize on this band, they would, and scratches like those could be easily blown out of proportion.

Sammie felt exhausted, for one. She'd been on a flight since 3 p.m. the previous day, just to get to where ever her band was for their gig. She couldn't keep track, and was too tired to take the time to look it up on her tablet, a white Ipad Mini. That little thing was her best friend during this job, and she couldn't have been more satisfied with it. It even had little games for her to play when she wasn't sleeping on a plane, bus, or car.

After going through an exhausting trip through the airport, she grabbed her car keys out of the little basket she was required to place them in, for checking, and booked it out of the way too-crowded building. She was slightly annoyed, not only because of being swiped by those policemen, but because she sat next to a young mother, and a newborn the whole way here. Sammie was sure she was already a mess, but without sleep, she'd crash. So, with a messy bun, and red eyes she grabbed the biggest cup of coffee she'd had in a while, and booked it on over to the band's gig site, at least that's where she hoped they'd be.

Sammie was kind of nervous about working for the band, in general. With the rumors going about Roni, she didn't know how exactly they'd been reacting to it. Sure, she's their agent, but she'd been gone away, sealing up the last of the end ties for this whole rock tour, off in another state. So, she'd been gone for about a month and a half.

She finally arrived to the band's gig spot, and thank god, they hadn't moved on yet. It looked like they were either getting ready to leave, or had just gotten there and hadn't set up yet, she couldn't quite tell. Pulling up next to the van, she parked, and hopped out, her legs a little tingly from starting to fall asleep from the long drive. After stretching momentarily, she whipped out her faithful little Ipad, and threw her backpack on her shoulders, and headed towards the buses to see what exactly was going on with the band, coffee in tow.

Johnny had napped for a good two hours on his flight, alone. Sammie had gone who knows where to do something about the tour, and he'd gone to a meeting with his boss about a possible future tour, if the band continues to see success throughout the current tour. He liked his job alright, it paid the bills, and.. he got to see her.

Roni. Oh, Roni, was the light of his life for almost 3 years. He'd had a major crush on her in highschool, then finally had the balls to ask her out, and dagum, she accepted. They'd dated for the almost 3 years, and then she found Chayton. He'd never cared for him, but Johnny didn't hate Chayton. He hadn't given him reason to, until he noticed Roni paying more attention to him. Now, he doesn't exactly go out of his way to make Chayton happy.

He scratched his forehead rather seriously, his hair in it's usual spikes, and his jeans their usual dark color, with a few wrinkles in the upper thigh area. His and Roni's old anniversary was coming up, and he was more than excited. He loved her, and that may be the only thing he was damned sure of.

Johnny, a little late, arrived at the gig location, and as scheduled, the band hadn't left yet. "Right on time.." he muttered, as he ran a hand through his thick hair, and grabbed a clipboard from the passenger seat of his truck, a black F-150, the latest model. For only a brief second, he smiled, at his earlier conversation this morning with Chayton, or Sunshine, as he'd called him. As Johnny walked towards the buses, he noticed Sammie's car, a bright aqua blue Ford Mustang, with two white stripes on the hood, and roof of the car. Shaking his head, he chuckled, and was interested to see what the band had been up to as he'd been gone.

Evanne suppressed an aggravated moan towards the glorified bucket of bolts she schlepped this band in to God knows where in the country. It's been getting on her last nerve for a few months now and she's not looking to get any new ones in. Her messy black hair was piled haphazardly on her head while she worked. Most days she thought of just chopping it off, but if her saltiness didn't drive every man away already, her boyish coif certainly will. She had her future children to think about. Not that she ever had any dream of having them. Sleep deprivation can do a lot of awful things to the body and she doesn't exactly take care of herself. She'd be surprised if she had one good egg still floating in there.
One positive thing she can attribute to her perpetual lack of sleep is the exuberant amount she is allowed to spend on whatever she damn well please. Her high physical fitness and expansive knowledge of engineering, engines, and more was attributed to.
But all of that counted for jack shit right about now considering the damn circuit on the electrical panel was fried. Lights have been wonky before but she chalked that up to laziness and now had no other choice but to handle up on it. She kicked the tire and plopped herself down, gathering herself before she did what she knew she had to, call her brother over. Don't get it twisted her brother was a genius when it came to all types of electronics, but these situations always played out the same. He'd be smug at the fact that she needed his help to work on a vehicle, but then turn around and constantly ask questions about the rest of the vehicle. He made no sense.
Evanne wiped the sweat from her brow and laid her arms on her propped up knees. She wore thin sweat pants, even though it was still quite warm, but all she wore on top was a black sports bra and a frown. If beau saw one more grease stain on a shirt he bought her he'd throw a hissy fit and she really didn't feel like hearing it. She traced the lines of her tattoo on one arm absentmindedly and let her mind open for just a little while. She's been up for about 36 hours now, but managed to put in hours of tinkering and exercise in between drives and gigs that she never went to. Uninterested. She was hopeful that she might actually be able to sleep tonight. God Bless the person that ever woke her up from a "nap" as she calls it, she's busted many a ball for less.
Rolling her eyes at nothing in particular, she hoisted herself up, got a quick sip of water and went to go find Beau so that they could get the show on the road. She walked through the bus first even though she knew he was more than likely inside or by her car. He was so lucky he got that privilege. She passed several band mates that she merely nodded to. She can't really recall having more than a few words with anyone actually in the band so she kept it brief most of the time. She grabbed a jacket from a small closet where she kept spare items and let down her hair, not bothering to brush it. Eventually after some searching she found what she was looking for.





Image
Beau was placing some of his equipment into the back of Evvy's car. The band was planning on playing shows, mostly because it was a band, so electronics always had to be tweaked. Audio always had to go through and everything had to be perfect. No one said it would be easy doing the thing you love, but he'd always been a hard worker. His light grey t-shirt and dark jeans felt heavy on him since he'd been working most of the morning after he woke up so he pulled a shirt out of the back of Evanne's car and had just taken his grey one off in exchange when she came stomping up, looking as cute as a button. But she's always looked cute when she's mad. He laughed as he was sliding on his clean black shirt.
"What's got your panties all in a twist?"Forgetting who he was talking to, "Forget I asked"
Evanne mocked amusement but got to the point quicker than usual, "The electrical panel on the bus needs some TLC and a wire needs to be re sectioned and re soldered."
Beau was feeling positively giddy as he reached into the back seat where he had just sat his tools and grabbed his portable soldering gun, a handful of wires, pliers, and his gloves. He followed close behind her as they made the short walk back to the bus from her BMW.
"So does this mean that you actually need my help with a vehicle?" Giddy couldn't even describe his euphoria. IT had been a couple of months since Evanne had asked him for anything and he was going to milk until it was dry.
She gave a short "Can it." before she lifted the panel leading to the electrical panel. "All I need are these two wires here...and here, to be re soldered. I also need this wire to be replaced up to this point, as she pointed to about a foot above where the wire had been attached to the motherboard. "Think you can handle that Sparky?"
Beau smiled at her and nodded his head as he surveyed the damage to the wire. It looks as if it ruptured from over stimulation. Since this was the particular wire running the head lights it made sense, they had been traveling quite frequently lately. He grabbed some plastic wire connectors from his pocket and began putting his gloves on. "Shouldn't be a problem sister dear," he said letting some of his southern drawl eek out, knowing it would get under her skin. It did. She squinted her eyes, but eventually rolled them and blew out a breath and leaned her head on his shoulder. " I think I might actually be tired. Tired and dirty."Her nose scrunched up slightly and he smiled at her and kissed her forehead. "Go wash up Evvy, I'll handle this no problem so we can be on the way. We should be moving within a couple of hours, but I'm sure you could squeeze a nap in if your'e up to it." He always worried about how her sleeping habits, or lack of, affected her health so he always tried to remain optimistic about the promise of sleep. Beau watched his sister sigh softly and lift her head up before squeezing his arm and pulling up the corner of her lip, the closest thing to a smile she gives on a regular basis. "Here's to hoping". His eyes followed her into the bus where she entered the bathroom before he got down to business. He could do this kind of stuff blindfolded, but he took his time. He liked doing things to lessen Evanne's workload whenever he could and it made him feel good to help her. Too soon, though, he was done and shut the door to the compartment. As he walked back once again to her prized BMW to place his tools inside, he shot her a text saying that everything should be up and running.

Em looked down at Viv as she placed her head on her knee asking for some of her cereal. Em couldn't help but laugh at Viv's attempts to get something to eat. Em pulled an uncertain face " I don't know, puppy dog eyes don't work on me... But I've had all I want, so you can have the rest" she handed the bowl to Viv standing up and stretching " but I'm going to get dressed, and find out what show we are playing today if any, back in a second"

Em gave a quick wink to Viv and went to her bunk to pull out some clothes, she found some black skinny jeans as well as a graphic t shirt with a cartoon dinosaur on it. After brushing through her tangled mess of hair she tied it up in a messy bun, and applied a little bit of make up.

After brushing her teeth Em made her way back into the lounge area and pulled out a bottle of water sitting down on the sofa she sprawled her legs out and flicked through some tv channels it find something worth watching. Finding some cartoon she smiled softly her fingers playing with her hair.

Secrets. That was the life MacKenzie Marbles now delt in. Her music career was short lived but she did love it while it was there. No one remembers her as 'Kenzi'the pop star. When she was at the height of her popularity, she met this guy named Frances Morgan. He was a french camera man who introduced her to her true love. Film. She loves the way that capturing real life on film can change people's view.

She sat on a park bench across the street from the bus. Instead of sitting like a normal person did, she had her feet on the seat and her but on the back part where people usually rested ther back up against it. She brought a joint up to her lips and took a long drag. Her blue eyes stared at the tablet that sat on her knees. The one thing that her subjects weren't aware of was all of her hidden cameras and mics that she had added to the bus when they were off at a show.

Right now she couldn't see Viv and Em, but oh, she could definitely hear them. She blew the smoke out. "Well, well, well. This... could be very fun."


ImageImage
Kenzie finished her joint and turned off the tablet as she saw Em and Viv climbing out of the bunk. She put it into her bag and pulled out her hand held camera. She pulled it out and turned it on. She made her way back to the bus, smiling at the Harkin siblings as they worked on the van. "Hey guys. I want an interview with you two later!" She said aiming the camera at them so she got a good look at their olive toned gloriousness. They could be models if they had wanted to but she got the sense they were too down to earth.

She turned and stopped when she ran into Nico. "Hello there. Nico, got anything you want to say about that little rumor about Roni? I doubt it's true but it would be better to hear it from you rather than the person behind the camera." She gave him a flirtaious smile. She suspected a few things about him. She was positive he was a user and she was almost certain he was gay. She also knew he was not about to come out. But people would start to ask questions.


ImageImage
Mac saw Sienna behind Nico. She winked at her. She didn't see any harm in behind friendly to everyone. It wasn't like she couldn't get just about everyone into bed. It's not like they needed a forcing from her. Who wouldn't want her? She waited until he responded to move on to the bus. As she was climbing up the stairs, she noticed Sammie arriving. She gave her small way then continued on.

And there was viv all alone. Emma must have gone off to the bathroom or something. "Hey there, darling." She said to Vivian in a sultry voice. She aimed the camera at the keyboardist as she finished off the bowl of cereal. "What, not gonna share with me?" She teased her, coming to sit next to her. She smiled when Emma came back. She grinned at her. "Well, there you are. Good morning."

Johnny felt a rush of fear run through his veins. He hadn't seen his girlfriend of almost 3 years in several months. Was she going to be mad that he'd left for so long, or just happy that he was there now? He briefly stopped outside the bus, and scratched the back of his neck.

Swallowing a lump in his throat, he went inside the bus, quickly finding Kenzi, the documentary director, waving around the camera, and he chuckled as he came into view. "Kenzi, don't you ever take a break?" He said in a calm voice, his usual tone. He shook his head, and held his hand up, in case Kenzi tried filming him, as she tried to everytime she had that darn camera. "Kenz, shouldn't you save the filming for the shows?" He chuckled light-heartedly, and sighed.

He noticed Vivian at the table, eating some cereal. "Mornin' Viv. How's it been going?" After looking around briefly, he gained a face of confusion and looked around again. "You guys haven't seen Roni have you?" He sounded slightly worried, but it could be simply passed off for tiredness from the long flight over here. When he turned again, he found Em surfing channels on the television, while twirling her hair about.

"Em, you see Roni this morning?" He asked a little more seriously, and his grip on his clipboard tightened a little when he realized Chayton was no where to be found either. Johnny's head seemed to fill with hateful thoughts, but he then let out a sigh as he reassured himself he was just blowing this out of the water. That was all... wasn't it?

Roni jumped sky high and gave a squeal when Nico's cat attacked from out of no where. She was too stunned to really help him remove Baheera from his head. By the time, the little kitten made her escape, she had been accidently hit by Nico and all of their work was now scattered everywhere. She was even sure some of the earlier songs they had written had been ripped from the notebook.

She gave Nico a half smile to let him know it was okay. She started picking them up to find something to look at besides Chayton's face. She didn't want to see any signs of betrayal there.

"Thanks man." She heard Chayton say to Nico as he left. She chewed on her lip, still not making eye contact. She couldn't face him if he was angry at her.

ImageImage
But then something amazing happened to Roni. Not only did Chayton sit down next too her- he wouldn't have done that if he was angry, right?- but then he wrapped his strong arms around her. She let him pull her closer. She closed her eyes and drank in his scent. she could never remember being this close to him before. And then came his words.

"So, I just got off the phone with Johnny, he's not happy about the rumors and he wants me to 'fix it'." He said to her.

Of course, he had to remind her that she was taken. Not only did she love Chayton but she had tried to move on to Johnny and she did love him in her own way but not the way she loved Chayton. Maybe one day she would, she didn't know. "Fix it?" She glanced up at him.

"I, of course, don’t believe the rumors, Ronnie, but I think we may need to set up a press conference to clear them up and put them to an end. I know you wouldn’t abandon us, especially without speaking to us about it first. Besides, even if you wanted to write your own songs for a solo album, I don’t see a reason why you wouldn’t be able to be in the band and work on your own stuff if that’s what you wanted."

ImageImage
"But that's not what I want." Roni started and realized how that sounded. "Thank you for believing in me, but I don't want a solo career. All I want is to be with you-our family." She said quickly. She didn't need to be talking about how she felt about him. She meant the band not just him.

The red head blushed as he pulled her into a hug and kissed the top of her head. She closed her eyes and wrapped her arms around him, resting her head on his shoulder.

“All I want is for you to be happy, Ronnie. That’s all I’ve ever wanted truthfully. We’ll get to the bottom of this and put this nasty rumor to rest. Okay?”

She smiled at him, staring up at him. "Yeah. We definitely need to put this rumor to rest." She leaned up to give him a peck on the cheek. "Thank you." She whispered.

Em was momentarily distracted by the cartoons on tv, you didn't need to grow up when it came to watching tv. She smiled softly to herself letting a soft giggle escape her lips. She looked to Johnny as he asked her a question " Em, you seen Roni this morning?" She nodded and pointed to the back " Yeah, she's at the back room." She smiled at him Johnny always looked so worried about things but he was a really good guy and an even greater manager"

Emma sat up a little straighter as Kenzie entered "hey you.." She trailed off as Kenzie spoke to her . " well, there you are. Good morning" Emma gave a quick wink to her " what are you looking for me?" She swung her legs off the sofa and walked up to Kenzie " you know that camera of yours in always in your hand. Perhaps you should film something else in a while...like yourself" she smirked playfully reaching out and grabbing the camera out of her hand and turning it on her moving back slowly " here we have our documentary maker. The girl with phoenix red hair and a body like a Victoria's secret model..." She giggled softly panning the camera down " wait you can edit this out right?" She said jokingly turning the camera off. Holding it out to Kenzie she stepped forward in order to give it to her " So...did you want something?" She asked wiggling her eyebrows.
