Adjusting the hem of her sweater and tucking a stray hair behind her ear, a young woman felt butterflies in her stomach. She had never gone out to such an event before, tending to shy away from crowds and loud noise. Taking a deep breath to steady her nerves, she approached the packed cinema.

Feeling more than slightly claustrophobic as she squeezed her way through the lines and clusters of people waiting to get inside to see the advance screening of the most anticipated action film of the year, Tamia breathed a sigh of relief when she saw saw a brunnete with streaks and an ebony haired girl. She approached the two with a wave, earning a smile from them.

Trying her best to ignore the clamour and bustle of the crowd, Tamia leaned in, focusing her attention On Tatiana and Renee, letting them finish the end of their conversation before butting in. Her two best friends since grade school, they were waiting for her, the brunette holding three passes. As an intern for a local news agency, Renee had the opportunity to see movies in advance. After all, the press was good for word of mouth, and free passes to advance screenings were within her grasp. She handed her friends the passes, Tamia holding hers in awe.

"Should be fun huh? We get to see this a month before its release!" Renee chimed in excitement, flinging her arms over Tatiana and Tamia's shoulders.

"Thanks for inviting us!" Tamia said for what had to be the eigth time since being told she was getting a pass.

"No problems! More publicity for the movie."

Tatiana nodded, withdrawing a water bottle from her purse.

Tyler stepped out of the shower wrapping a towel around his waist looking out over the hotel suite he was staying in while he was in town for the premiere of his newest action film "Now you see me Now you don't." He saw the red light flashing on his hotel phone. He turned it on speaker and pressed play messages as he walked over to the mirror. "hey ty its your manager marty the director of that comedy you just the part in is going to be moving the set down to where you are he think it'll fit better also we need to talk about you and your ex call me after the premiere tonight."

Tyler groaned at the mention of his now ex girlfriend Hannah, they had been together for years and where the IT couple of hollywood until Tyler finally realized what an unhealthy relationship the two had and broke it off. THat was about 3 months ago and they hadn't spoke since. Tyler grabbed his comb from the counter and slicked his hair back and brushed his teeth before finally grabbing the tux from his closet. Finally he was ready to go he grabbed his Iphone and called his driver to pick him up.

He walked down the back hallway of the hotel and through a wave of screaming fans as his body guards kept them off of him. HE climmbed into the limo and drove to the theater where he would not only be viewing the film but he would be sigining autographs before the film started. As he walked into the back entrance of the theater he saw the booth he would be at sigining autographs and took a seat and waited for the fans to be let in.

Tamia began to relax as she conversed with her friends, the crowd no longer as overwhelming when with familiar company. It was a bit pathetic, she thought. Here she was, nearing twenty, and she still felt so small and unprepared for the real world more than half the time. Bit by bit, she was hoping to become confident, competent, and self-sufficient in all capacities. It was nice, however, to just relax on a weekend with her friends.

The various conversations going on throughout the crowd trailed off as the venue doors opened, letting the anxiously awaiting fans and press who had such an opportunity inside at last. Excitement mounting, Tamia and her companions shuffled forward as soon as the line allowed, the chocolate haired girl letting out a slight squeek at feeling someone shove into her from behind, eager to urge people faster. Well, that was rude! They were all going to get in. She didn't complain though, holding up her pass after Tatiana and Renee passed through.

"Where you going Tamia? Autographs first, remember?" Tatiana inquired with a gentle, albeit amused smile.
Tamia paused, a sheepish smile and embarassed blush on her cheeks as she was reminded the show would begin after a complimentary autograph session.

Renee giggled, tugging her two less boistrous buddies towards the quickly growing line.

Tamia followed the two, appraising them with a smile. Tatiana, an ebony haired young woman who she viewed as a perfect role model and ideal human being. Smart, patient, dedicated and likable.
Then there was Renee; a boistrous, outspoken, but no less decent girl who had an mischevious side.

Then there was her. The 'little mouse' who grew up without a want. The less-than-sure of herself college girl who had high dreams but a passive demeanor.

Tonight, Tamia was acting more like a normal girl her age, going out with friends at night just to have fun and gab over a movie.

"So, who is here for autographs?" Tamia asked Renee, earning a startled look from the teal-streaked brunnete.

"Eh? Didn't you know? It's Tyler Williams! Why'd you think it was so packed tonight?" she answered her friend.

Tyler sat down at the booth with hundreds of pictures of himself, posters of the cast, for the film in stacks in front of them. Tyler checked his phone 15 minutes left until the doors would open and he would be swarmed by fans mostly girls. He dialed his agents number and pressed the phone to his ear. The phone rang a couple times and Marty picked up "hey Ty my buddy hows my favorite client?" he asked his voice had a thick manhattan accent.

"I'm great Marty I'm at the theater waiting for the event to start so I can watch myself on the big screen, so about that comedy?" Tyler asked.

"Well Judd Apatow emailed me and told me he would no longer be working on this project, so the new director is some up and coming director named Joesph Hamlin and he changed shooting location from here in New York to down there in L.A" Marty said

"GReat thats another week from home...well what used to be home" he said thinking back to the apartment both him and Hannah had shared when they lived in New York. He shook hid head snapping out of it "look marty I'll call you back after the premiere and as far as Hannah goes I don't want to talk about it" he said and hung up the phone and slammed it down on the table. He took a deep breath to calm himself and looked at the theater manager "I'm ready whenever you guys are" he said and stared out at the crowd of fans.

The line moved slowly, almost every person lingering as long as possible to talk to the famous actor. Most people, girls especially, used any excuse to talk longer they could. While a few may have had some truth in it, the majority was probably exaggerated or flat up BS-ing.

Some asked for acting tips, saying they were pursuing a drama career. Some asked for a personalized autograph for a friend who couldn't make it. Some asked for an opinion on a previous work. Still others inquired about how he thought the current show was going to be recieved. The list went on, and it was only due to the bodyguard and theatre manager that people moved on. A good majority of the line had to be reminded there were others waiting, and the show would start as soon as everyone was inside. The only ones allowed to linger and ask a few more questions were those clearly identified as members of the press. However, most of their questions would be saved for later, or a question and answer panel being held at a later point. The press would have more access, and in the meantime, they could always go to the producers and interview them as well.



Tamia and her friends patiently shuffled forward in the line, waiting their turn and occassionally standing on tip toes or craning their necks to see how it was progressing. At one point, Renee snapped briefly at someone for shoving, nearly getting them asked to leave. Thankfully, Tatiana and Tamia worked as a peace keeping tag team and calmed Renee back down and apologized to the attendant.

"I'm ok, I'm ok." Renee said, earning a relieved sigh from Tamia.

The line continued, and by now they were close enough to hear some eager fans talking to Tyler in excitement.

"I love all of your work! It's really awesome what you do, ya know? Really cool, can't wait to see you on the screen tonight. What do you use for your hair? You look so fabulous!" gushed a girl in hot pink and what honestly looked like full on sparkles from a jar of confetti as the embellishments.

Tyler uncapped his pen and began signing autographs for fans. He watched as members of the press began asking him questions about filming, about his personal life. He answered a few but reminded them that he would answer any further questions during the Q&A after the screening. He found himself giving out tips to a few people he thought were actually serious about the art. When one girl who was dressed in hot pink and had one of those high pitched annoying valley girl voices approached. He smiled at her "well I use Axe hair gel it works pretty well" he said as he signed his name on a picture and handed it to her.

"next in line please" He shouted over the large waves of fans he continued to sign more autographs allowing his mind to wander, he thought about this film he would be doing and thought about taking a break from acting and just taking some time for himself and stay with his mom and dad for a couple weeks to unwind. Tyler again shook his head snapping out of his day dreaming as he saw the huge crowd narrowing down to its last few people when he saw three girls that were standing and chatting together and he looked towards them and said "next please"

The pink-clad female looked dismayed as she was urged along far too soon for her liking, pouting as she left with a picture.

The line continued, until finally the trio were ushered forward.
"One poster for each of us please." Tatiana said, the black haired girl looking amused and sympathetic. "Long night for you I imagine." she said simply.
"Can't wait to see the movie!" Renee said, looking excited as she all but bounced around. It was then that she glanced about in confusion. She didn't see her socially akward friend behind her anymore. "The hell!? Did we seriously lose Ta-"

"Sorry, had to fix my shoelace." Tamia answered the question for her, straightening up with a smile.

Tatiana giggled, thanking Tyler as she accepted the poster with his autograph. Renee fistpumped the air. The two couldn't help but whisper excitedly to each other, not screaming fangirls, but obviously relishing that they got to meet the actor. "So cool! Told you this was gonna be awesome!" Renee commented, earning a nod of agreement.

Tamia glanced up, and simply looked at the actor. He had really nice hair, and gorgeous green eyes. He was certainly pleasing to the eyes. She could appreciate why girls gushed over him as far as appearances went. And as an actor, he was definately skilled and worth attention. It was amazing to her she was even seeing him for real. Suddenly feeling self conscious and akward, Tamia made her tentative request.

"J-Just a poster please. Then I'll get out of your hair." Tamia said, still managing a soft, cheerful smile.

Tyler signed two posters for the two girls that walked up after the girl in pink walked away in a huff. He could tell they were excited to meet him but he was thankful that they weren't completely going at the thought of meeting him. He had met some pretty crazy fans before. One girl snuck into his hotel room and stole a pair of his pants, he had to fire his old body guard for that one, another fan actually tried to convince him to marry her, that thankfully didn't work out. Tyler loved his fans but sometimes he wished he could just be a normal person.

He watched the last girl walk up to him and he smiled at her "a poster?" he said as he grabbed one from the poster stack it had the words of the movie run across the top of poster, with a wall exploding open and himself standing there holding a a hand gun with a serious look on his face. "who should I make this out too?" he asked. He could tell she was witht the girls that he had just given autographs too. She had a pair of glasses on and chocolate brown hair it was funny because he always had a thing for brunettes. She had a kind of nerdy look about her but it didn't make her unattractive.

Tyler wrote his name out on the poster and waited for the girl to answer.

Tamia nodded at the actor, his smile reassuring and as charming in person as it was on screen. "Yes, just a poster." she confirmed, watching him sign his name as he had already done hundreds of times most likely. Having not seen him inquire about her friends names in leiu of time, she looked sufficiently startled at his sudden question. Make it out to? He wanted her name? Whatever she expected, it wasn't that.

"M-my name?" she all but squeeked, blinking in surprise and averting her gaze for a second in a sudden burst of shyness. Looking back up at Tyler, the young woman answered him, hoping she hadn't spaced out. "Tamia...my name is Tamia." she said softly, watching the young actor. He seemed nice, polite as well. He didn't give off an intimidating or unwelcome attitude, so it was no wonder his fans were drawn to him. She smiled, glad her frinds had talked her into coming. "Thank you for the autograph." she said, realizing she hadn't properly thanked him. It's not like he had to give his fans anything.

Tyler wrote above his name "to my amazing fan Tamia." he slid her the poster and gave her one of his famous smiles, then said "enjoy the film." Tyler in all honesty loved his fans he knew that without them he would never be where he was, he wouldn't have the half a million dollar car, the body guards, the chauffers, or even his amazing house he had bought for his parents who without them he also wouldn't be where he was. So because his fans made him who he was at least in his mind he wanted to give back to them.

Tyler noticed that Tamia was the last person in line and looked at her and her friends who were waiting for her. "do you have any questions for me ladies" he said. "you guys are last in line so since the movie won't start till you guys get seated I could answer any questions you guys had for me" he said kindly.

Taking the poster as it was handed to her, Tamia's eyes widened in surprise at the kind message accompanying the autograph. Glancing up at the actor, her cheeks took on a light pink hue in shy and startled appreciation. The brunnette smiled at Tyler, looking less stiff than before. "Thank you very much. I'm sure we will!" she chimed cheerfully, turning to leave and let the next person in line see him. She realized they were the end of the line just as his words registered in her brain.

"What's the best part about acting professionally?" asked Renee, taking advantage of the offer, true interview and reporter style.

Tatiana waited for her more rowdy friend before asking her own questions. "What's the biggest challenge of acting in movies? Did you start by stage acting?"

Only Tamia reigned in her questions. The movie wouldn't start until they were all seated? Well surely the other fans wanted to see the movie and she could imagine they didn't want to wait for some nosey girls. Not that she thought her frinds were nosey, but if they all got caught up in asking questions and sating their curiousity, they'd be there a while.

"T-thank you sir. As tempting as the offer is, I'm sure everyone is eager to see the movie. It would be rude to keep them waiting." she reasoned, smiling at him as she spoke. She did however look as curious, if not more so, than her friends.

"Probably a good idea to keep it to the one question each. Good call Tamia." The ebony haired Tatiana agreed.

Tyler smiled as one of the girls began firing off questions, he thought about each one carefully, then smiled as Tamia pointed out that the screening wouldn't start until they had been seated. "you're right I forgot about that and you're friend brings up a good way to handle it you can each have one question for me if you want before the Q&A after the film." Tyler said. He looked at the who asked the first couple questions and said "yes I started by stage acting, and the biggest challenge of acting in movies has to be being away from my family back home. My parents are the reason I got into acting in the first place and they mean alot to me so being away from them makes thing kind of lonely.

Tyler smiled as he thought about life back home, his mom cooking dinner, his dad sitting in his chair a pipe between his teeth as the football game would echo through the room, and his little sister laying on the floor coloring, or playing on her ipad. Tyler looked at the two girls who hadn't asked him a question yet. "alright one question each for you two" he said looking at Tamia and her friend.
