After reading the message, Pierre was kind of paralyzed. What would he do now? Was he supposed to reply? If he didn’t, he might lose her, again. He didn’t want this; he wanted to see Charlotte no matter what. So he stood up quietly and went to see the shows chart to check if there was another show in Quebec, and there was. He was probably going to see her again, in one week. He grabbed his phone and replied:
“Are you going to the next show in Quebec?”
Message sent. He waited, sitting down on the couch staring at his phone. But as people say, “keep on staring at it and anything will happen”. Suddenly, the phone rang. It was Charlotte.
“Didn’t you read my message? I can’t be with you no matter how much I love you, I just can’t”
Pierre read it and took a deep breath.
“As someone told me once, “age is just a number” so why is it that you can’t be with me?”
He waited for an answer that never came. He was awake for about 1 hour waiting for her to reply, he didn’t give up that easily. Maybe her phone ran out of battery, maybe it fell and broke or she was probably taking a bath. He kept on waiting for half an hour until he realized she wouldn’t reply. He was desperate. He needed her. Trying to take the phone off his hands was like trying to take a candy off a child. After going back to sleep he sent her a last message, hoping she would read it.
“Charlotte, the first time I saw you, you left me speechless. I never saw such a beautiful girl in the world; you just seem perfect for me. When I look at you in the eyes I can see that you are amazing, I can feel what you are feeling… you are… can I see you one last time?”
He went to sleep though he couldn’t. He had a lot of thoughts going on in his head right now. Love, desire, sadness, need. He has never felt like this before. He knew this time was especial.
When he woke up in the morning, the guys were sleeping. He automatically grabbed his phone and saw Charlotte had replied.
“See you next week Pierre, don’t make the same mistake again”
At the moment that Pierre read what Charlotte sent, he jumped and hit his head against Chuck’s bed waking up Chuck.
Chuck: What the fuck dude! I was sleeping in here!
Pierre: Sorry mate! I’m going to see her again next week!
Chuck: Amazing! Now let me celebrate by sleeping a little bit!
Pierre: Haha ok Chuck, whatever.
Though Pierre showed himself as he wasn’t that excited, he was. God he was excited! He was going to see Charlotte again! He couldn’t wait for Friday to arrive!
After 3 shows, the guys went back to Quebec for their last concert of the month. When they arrived, thousands of fans were approaching and saying hi, but Pierre was a little busy looking for Charlotte, the girl who has blown his mind. In the middle of the crowd, he finally spotted her. She was standing near the stage, alone. Pierre went almost running and shouted ‘Char!’
Pierre: Hey… I finally found you.
Pierre puts his hand on the wall in a way it is blocking her way but at the same time he is standing right in front of her.
Pierre: Listen, I told you everything last night. How you make me feel every time I’m around you and when I look at you… you are driving me crazy and I’m deeply in love with you, letting you go was a huge mistake, but I have you now and I won’t let you go till I get what I want –He said with a little smile-
Charlotte: And… what do you want?
Pierre: -smiling- You.
He approaches his head to hers, touching her lips with his. They kissed as if there was no tomorrow, as if they where the only ones there. Pierre put his hands over her waist and she surrounded his neck with her arms. Suddenly, Pierre stopped kissing her whispered “I love you”.
