I'm a coward not a fighter, disguised as a lover.
Well just stress and I’m kind of busy.
You seriously need to take a break dear. I feel as though you are always stressed and that is not god for a mommy to be.
“Hey now, I asked you if you were ready. Me? I’m always ready.” Carson teased as he turned and led the way down the hall and out of the apartment complex. The chilly night air caused goosebumps to raise on his arms. “Are you gonna be warm enough?” He asked, silently laughing at his use of ‘gonna’. He was letting the American slang get to him. “Its just around the block, don’t worry.” He said, wishing he had worn a jacket that he could now hand to her. He had watched enough romance movies to know that’s what gentleman did.
“Long time no see” Carson said, sparking conversation on the walk to the concert house. “Seriously, where the heck have you been?” he said flashing a smile in her direction. It was true, they hadnt talked in a while. Though, it might have been because Carson had been wrapped up in his music to really go out much in the past week. This was a nice change of pace. As they neared the corner containing the venue, a faint hum of music could be heard traveling through the air. Carson led them to the door and paid for their entrance before Amelia could even get out her wallet. It wasn’t that expensive and Carson figured that since he couldn’t offer her a jacket, he would be a gentleman this way.
Amelia laughed and shook her head,”If you say so,” She said following him out of the building and down the street, she took a deep breath of the crisp night air “Yeah, i’ll be fine. No worries” she said with a smile, really glad at this moment that she added thigh high socks so her legs had some coverage from the wind that whipped around them. She found the cool air refreshing more than anything and she didn’t mind it at all.
"Yeah, I know," she said with a light chuckle before shrugging her shoulders "Hibernation, I guess" She joked and returned his smile. When she began to hear the faint sound of music she guessed they were coming near to their destination. Walking inside with him she sighed and nudged his shoulder "You didn’t have to do that, silly. I could’ve pad for myself" she told him pulling out her wallet. Amelia liked to think that she could take care of herself.
It’s an idea I’m toying with. Part of me wold love it but there’s a voice in my head telling me it’s a terrible idea.
How would it be terrible I see nothing but positives!
I can’t believe I’ve been here so long and I haven’t done a fashion show yet. I should probably change that.
You definitely should, I would love to see your work!
Carson pulled his hair back with a lightly colored heaband. He knew his hair was getting too long, but he was too lazy to track down a place to cut it. He stepped out of his apartment and made his way to Amelia. They had participated in a few flirtartious conversations but had never hung out one on one before. Carson had been to this concert house multiple times since moving to New York. The bands, though local, were always talented and provided him with inspiration to put towards his own work. He was excited to take Amelia down there, he hoped that she would find it as enjoyable as he did. Plus, being the friendly person he was, Carson had made friends with most of the bar tenders, meaning that they often would ‘forget’ to check for his ID. The boy was only twenty but he still had his ways of obtaining alcohol.
He reached her apartment in a faster time than he expected. He hadnt realized how close she lived, and he wondered why he hadnt asked her to hang out before. Carson didn’t want to seem too eager, so he waited outside of her door until he couldn’t wait outside any longer. He knocked in the typical cheesy pattern and waited to see her face peek out of the frame. He was wearing his black skinny jeans, which had a rip on the right knee but he refused to replace them as he thinks that they are in style, a plaid tshirt, and worn out boots. When Amelia finally appeared, Carson greeted her with a cheesy smile. She looked beautiful. He always saw her as attractive, but tonight he noticed it. “You ready for this?” he asked.
Amelia was beyond excited to go out do something new. She hadn’t been in that state in years and she hated that it was trying to take over her again. She almost ran out of bed and rushed to get ready for the night out. Placing her phone in the stereo she played her favorite playlist of songs and began to get ready. She showered and straightened her hair, she hadn’t done that much because of the intense humidity in florida but the chilly new york weather was perfect for straight hair and she took advantage of it. Clawing through her closet she finally found something she desire to wear, a burgundy skirt and a black crop top, once she put it on she decided that it needed something to finish off, so she added some thigh high socks and lace up booties. She was curious as to hat the place he was taking her would be like, but she knew that Carson was a person she didn’t mind hanging around. Amelia thought he was one of the coolest guys here, all the other were to pretentious for her taste and she liked how easy going Carson was.
When she heard the knock at the door she was applying mascara so she finished up with it and jogged over to her stereo taking her phone out of t, turning off the music, and grabbed her keys and all other necessities and stuffing into her bag before she opened the door and smiled. “Most definitely” she said as she shook her head in agreement. “What about you? Think you can keep up?” She said in playful tone.
Are you free tonight? Theres a little concert house down the block and they have good live music. I go there sometimes to hang out. Plus the guy at the bar doesn’t check for IDs.
