Chapter 5.13

Lexie

I was in total shock by the end of the concert.

Me.

Alexis Bianca Day was a full fledged Throbber. Could my life not be a total cliche? I thought I’d tried really hard never to fall into any normalized pitfalls like this. At 22, I still liked anime. I loved to dress in cosplay and go to anime and comic cons. I was a guild leader in my favorite MMORPG, Black Scourge, and I could kick anyone’s ass as a sexy Orc named Candy Kiss. I didn’t date just because I didn’t feel the need. I was who I was and wouldn’t be defined by a dude. Independent woman came to mind. That’s what I wanted to be. I volunteered at our local animal shelter at least three times a week and took hot yoga classes to stay in shape.

But I sank tonight. Lower than I thought was possible.

And to make matters worse, instead of looking at the Asian hottie in glasses, the lead singer caught my eye. His dreamy electric blue eyes seemed to blaze like a neon romantic sign. But I knew exactly what he was all about so no way would I ever stoop so low as to become one of his million and one fangirls. James Sanderson was in the news practically every month, throwing some diva fit. Last piece of fodder for the gossip sites, he’d punched out a paparazzi, went to jail for it, and then told the judge, “Do you KNOW who I am?” He got off with just a fine. Seemed the judge did know who he was.

Huge eyeroll.

After all the screaming fans left, we stuck around because apparently, Gabby’s cousin got us back stage passes.

Or so I thought.

“What do you mean we just hide out here until they come out?” I asked Gabby incredulously.

“Yeah, so that’s what my cousin said was crazy about this stage. The Heartthrobs take their time getting dressed and will come out in the back. Security is very lax here. She knows because she used to be a roadie. It’s perfect!”

My eyes glazed over like hardened glue. “So, you want us to hide out and pounce like some crazed teeny bopper fangirl vultures? Um…no.”

“Come on, Lexie. Why do you have to worry so much? This will work. My cousin assured me.”

“I don’t know, Gabs, maybe because I don’t really like the idea of sitting  in jail for trespassing and invading the privacy of some famous boy band. These guys are sure to have body guards.”

She whipped her hands back and forth and whispered, “Hush! Someone’s coming!”

Tiptoeing toward the bushes, she raised her head up to get a peek.

God, my heart felt like it was running the hundred yard dash, trying to leap out of my chest. For some crappy reason, I didn’t leave my friends. I actually WANTED to see these guys. This was so dumb. But I couldn’t force my legs to move. I was like some weird fangirl sculpture stuck in the grass.

“The door is opening!” Gabby whisper squealed.

“Did you hear something?” one of the guards said to his partner.

I squeaked, covering my mouth and collasped on the ground. We were dead.

And then the next thing I knew, I was in front of them–all five singers. I winced, dying of embarrassment.

“Hey, ladies. What’s up?” my adoration said. Gabby told me his name was Charlie Tsui, the shyest member of the band. He didn’t look too shy to me.

I turned to stone on the spot.

Charlie Tsui

I was never surprised when girls found a way to break through security. It happened at almost every venue. At first, I hated all the attention. But after a while, it became something I expected. Most of the girls were of a type–very young, usually 13 and under. So, I was eloquently blown away when a vision of the sexy kind blocked our way.

She was shocked even though I was not.

“Hey, my dudes. Do we have company?” Nathan asked, walking behind us. “Well, hello, there!” I could tell by his voice, he didn’t mind the intrusion either.

Maddox and Kaluha were in their own bro bubble, so they didn’t even notice. James was covering his face and dodging like he always did. He never liked fans. I wondered why he was the most popular out of all of us. He treated them like garbage and they didn’t seem to mind.

Screenshot_428

“Did you ladies enjoy the concert?” I asked. Since they somehow managed to slip through security, I thought I’d chat them up. I didn’t want them to get into trouble.

Screenshot_429

But the gorgeous one’s eyes looked like they were going to pop right out. “No,” I said, “it’s okay…just…” Before I could complete my sentence, she squeaked and darted away.

“…wait?”

    1. It’s Pride month so…

      The venue supports. 😝

      Charlie is very personable. And yet, I’m not sure how Lexie will ever deal with meeting him for real even if she gets another chance. 😉

  1. I love Lexie so much. ❤ ❤ ❤ She's my favorite heir so far! I love how she was bitten by the fangirl bug despite being so vocally against all that "teenage girl nonsense." 😉

    It was hilarious how reluctant she was to basically break through security and camp out–and how tongue-tied she was when confronted with the boys, LOL.

    Aww, Charlie is so cute! His mom must be so proud. Can't blame Lexie for being distracted by James's smoldering hotness though. Eee, can't wait to find out what trouble she gets into next, LOL.

    1. Aww…I’m glad she’s your favorite heir. She’s been mine to write! I’m kind of obsessed with her. 😉

      Starstruck is a key word for her. She has social anxiety anyway so when confronted with her idol, it was too much! 😝

      I hope Charlie’s mom is proud of him. He’s a good boy….😉

  2. HA! I loved Lexie just running in absolute terror. I 100% understand… it can be scary to meet your idols! Especially when that love/obsession is so fresh, I bet! She just fel under their spell… give a girl some time to breathe! 😛 Hahaha

    Don’t worry, Lex. I’ve got a feeling this won’t be your last chance to talk to these guys 😉

    What a fun chapter! ❤️

    1. Terror at the thought of conversing with…gulp…CHARLIE TSUI!!! 😱

      She would hav who idea how she’d be able to meet them again and frankly, I think she’s just fine with watching (and swooning) from afar. 😉

      Glad you liked the chapter!

      1. Aw if she meets them a few more times she can build up an immunity! LOL that’s what happened with me and my favorite band!

        Also, I forgot to mention how much I love Charlie ❤ He’s so cute!

        Hopefully she’ll get over these nervous jitters when around her idol, but…who knows?

  3. Omg Lexie! HE SPOKE TO YOU. /Dies

    Oh man, that moment in every geek’s life when they fall for a mainstream Thing.
    I feel you boo; could be worse tho? Those boys are FINE.

    Now I’m extra excited for her to fall into the boy band abyss /vibrates

    1. He “tried” to speak to her. Our nervous girl wasn’t cooperating with her good fortune.

      She’s rather embarrassed by her weakness and her Heartthrob vices. But she’ll overcome this and embrace her inner Throbber. 😏

  4. Ow wonder Charlie Ltried” to speak to her, she is a total babe. Great Blackwell/Day genes hidden behind those glasses. Not some 13 year old teeny bobber. Do they still say that anymore? Moving on.

    She is a total Throbber now…and will stalk them like they’ve never been stalked before! I wonder if her friends stayed with and talked or left too.

    Great start. Love Lexie. ❤️

    1. She did get the best of both parents–geekiness just hides her beauty. 😉

      Teeny bopper–I’ll have to ask my daughter if people say this anymore. I’m always amazed at the slang these days. My daughter was giving me lessons the other day. I…ahem…won’t be using some of this language because I doubt anyone over 20 would understand it.

      Thank you!! ❤

      1. I get what you mean about the slang.. I would have to google everything to understand it. Lol…. can’t wait to see how much stalking Lexie does….she won’t be able to stop herself now that she has even them up close and personal. Sort of…

  5. That brought back some memories. 🙂 Friend and I hid around the tour buses of a boy band once just to meet them. One of them keep security from busting us. 🙂 I snuck into the bathroom near the dressing rooms another time and got a big hug from one of the guys in another boy band. Became good friends with the tour manager/keyboard player of one of the guys from first boy band after he went solo. Managed to get onto the tour bus and chat with the guys thanks to the help of the tour manager. 🙂

    Lexie, become friends with the crew or the band. It works and gets you access to the guys. 🙂

    1. OMG!!! That’s so much fun! You’re a boy band groupie of the first kind!

      Unfortunately, Lexie isn’t as bold as you, so she won’t be doing this, but I loved hearing your stories!

      1. I was a bit crazier when I was younger. My ex husband never believed the stories until I got a phone call from Vince (the tour manager/keyboard player). After Darren talked to Vince then saw the autographed CDs that came in the mail the following week, he started to believe me. He really started believing me when another friend of mine who worked for a certain NFL team he liked sent him an autographed jersey signed by his favorite player for his birthday. 20 years later, I still talk to Vince. He no longer tours so I can’t get the hookups from him anymore. I do still chat with one of the members of the first boy band though. I built his website for him when he first went solo. That helped me out in a video editing class when we needed permission to use music in the videos. I had my permission setting in my email before the professor finished the lecture that day. Lol

  6. DON’T RUN FROM MY SON LEXIE HE’LL CRY
    I mean, *cough* no he won’t, he’s an adult. “Adult.” 😉

    Oh Lexie, I’d do the same if I were you. Actually, I’d just cry and try to talk even though it’ll sound like gibberish if I met my idol LOL. Maybe she’s still trying to accept she’s quickly getting sucked into a boyband where the fans are tweens that scream about, I don’t know, offering their wombs to them 😂

    Or was that just me back then
    🤔😂

    In due time, Lexie
    ACCEPT THE TRUTH AND FALL INTO BOYBAND HELL

  7. “What do you mean we just hide out here until they come out?” 😀 😀 😀
    I’d totally be tongue-tied too. Never knew what to speak with famous people about either.
    Also, hi to Lexie, from a former sexy troll priest and a guild leader (yep, that’s right, a troll, I’m not kidding).
    I love Lexie’s voice and her “critical” view of things. Keeps me giggling all the time.

  8. OMG, celebrity alert!! I can’t believe Charlie ACTUALLY spoke to Lexie!! I agree that it can be scary and exciting to meet your favorite idols! I’m certain this won’t be the last time Lexie will see these band boys!

    Fun chapter!!

    1. You might be right about her meeting Charlie again, but will she be able to get control of herself to BE herself around him? Time will tell!
