Sisley had spent the afternoon walking through the shops and got a great outfit for tonight, she had bought some leather leggings, a white shirt with big letter graphic print and she got her hair done with some new highlights at Tony and Guy.
At six thirty she was standing at Strand waiting for John and his girl-friend who had promised to pick her up for the concert. Opposite the road Sisley was staring at a huge poster displaying Rob, the singer she had previously met and partied with in London, the weekend before she had moved up North. The header was showing – live in concert tonight.
And there a limo was stopping the window got down, a girl shouting “Hey, Sisley, jump in!” Behind the girl was John smiling at Sisley asking “Are you ready?” Sisley was surprised she had no idea they would come with a stretch-limo, but then got in. She only knew John was a drummer of a band, she had not even asked for the band’s name but it seemed this concert was bigger than she had expected and yes, it was.
They drove towards Echo Arena, the biggest concert hall in town and the excitement was growing. They stopped. John passed on some backstage passes for Sisley and his girl-friend, then he left and took a separate entry. The girls went to the main entry. And yes, this was actually Rob’s concert, Sisley couldn’t believe it. Inside was a massive stage build with a bridge running over the audience’s hall in a circle.
The show had started and while Rob was singing Angel’s he was rocking over that bridge, getting really close to the people. He stopped at the point where Sisley and Rob’s girl-friend were standing and asked the two to join. Sisley screamed and jumped in the air she couldn’t believe it and now the three were singing and dancing running over the bridge and at the end of the song in the middle of the stage Rob looked at Sisley and kissed her.
Of course, he had recognized her from the weekend they had partied before. He was the one who went off with one of Sisley’s friend who had been disappointed because Rob had had a different idea of a one-night stand than her that night as he his was rather a “menage a trois” or more. So, Sisley wasn’t surprised that he just kissed her as part of the show. It was great fun, Rob gave them a wink and the last song played than they all disappeared backstage.
It was a blast, but it wasn’t over, yet, they now moved on to the after-party. At five thirty they took their way home all sitting in the stretch limo again including Rob back towards Strand.
Sisley still had her car at the pier, but she really was too tiered now for taking a drive home and Rob asked her to stay with him the hotel was close to the pier. Sisley smiled, what was that an invitation?
And, yes, she agreed.
A few hours later Sisley woke up, she remembered they had partied here with some more people. This wild party scene she just had had on her mind had that been real or just a dream? She shook her head and wasn’t sure about. But now there were only the two, Rob and her. And yes, Rob was laying close to her and all she could feel on and about him was pretty real, Rob smiled at her and the morning started with kisses for breakfast.
