I thought I'd try my hand at a oneshot. It rather sad, grab your tissues!
"Hey T! how are you!" I yelled across the large concert hall, Taylor had slept in and was late for souncheck. Ha! It wasn't me for once!
"Sup Hayles, I'm alright, you?"
"I'm fine. So you finally woke then?"
"Ha. Ha. Oh Hayley, you're so very funny, you should be a comedian!" He said in a very sarcastic manor. He wasn't a morning person.
"oh yeah, that was my second career choice!" I answered, edging on being cheeky.
"So, shall we soundcheck?" He said, his voice scolding.
"Yes, we shall."
I took to the stage and grabbed the mic, ready to start, Josh began to play and Jeremy and Taylor joined in, shortly after Zac joined, then came my turn. Soundcheck went great, we sounded awesome! We all walked back to the tour bus, laughing and joking, I hung back to tie my shoelace, if I didn't I knew I'd fall over. I'm not the most coordinated. Taylor stayed behind with me and we continued speaking.
"Soundcheck went great Hayles! You looked great up there."
"Yeah, you were amazing too!" I started to stand up and almost fell back, but T caught me. He stood me up and turned me to face him, we were inches apart.
"No problem." He said with a laugh.
I stared into his eyes, they were the most beautiful brown colour, I got lost in them and had to force myself back into reality. I fought so hard, trying to will myself not to want to kiss him. I mean, he was my bandmate! I'd been down that road before, it didn't end great. Josh and I were back to being best friends and that's the way a band should be. No love.
I could feel myself slipping further as I stared into his eyes harder, they were so deep and full of meaning, I couldn't decode what he was thinking, I hoped he was thinking of me. We'd been standing there for around ten minutes when I finally built up the strength to pull my body from his, I began to walk away but he grabbed arm..
"Hayley," he started, his voice no more than a whisper, "Don't leave. I can't take it. I need you in my life." Oh no, I was falling for him.
I turned around, "Taylor, I don't think we should.." Then I saw his face, the way the the light accented his beautiful features, the way his eyes pleaded for me. I couldn't help it, I leaned in and kissed him gently, feeling his warm lips moving against mine in perfect sync. I can still remember the feeling I got during that kiss. The butterflies, the warmth, that moment was unbelievably perfect. That was around two years ago. Back when things were good.
-One year later-
Taylor and I were dating, and we were getting pretty serious, I honestly believe I loved him. I couldn't go a whole day without seeing or calling him at least once. He made me feel so special and happy! My heart fluttered whenever I saw him, and I couldn't help but smile when he entered a room. I was making my way to the café where we were meeting, my thoughts on Taylor. I entered the café, pushing the door open and spotting him in the corner. He stood up and I ran over and embraced him, kissing him softly. We were in that café for around 4 hours, until it shut at 11pm. We wandered into the street hand in hand without a care in the world. I was so happy.
I pulled him along into the street, pausing on the road to kiss him passionately. We were both very into the moment. I pulled away and attempted to drag him along behind me, he wouldn't cooperate. He stood in the middle of the road, pouting. He let go of my hand and crossed his arms.
"What's up T?"
"I wasn't finished yet. I wanted another kiss." He said, still pouting.
"Taylor, later. Now get off the road." I said sternly.
"Hayley!!!" He begged.
"Not until you kiss me."
"Fine then. I stepped towards him, that's when it happened. There was a gunshot and Taylor's face fell. It took me a moment to realise what was happening, I ran towards Taylor and grabbed him before he fell, I sat on the ground and cradled him in my arms, watching the blood pour from his stomach. Somebody walked over and gasped, pulling their phone out to call an ambulance. I stared into his beautiful eyes, watching the sparkle leave them as tears flowed down my face. My heart ached and I felt it tear into tiny shreds, my whole world was shattering around me. I didn't know what to do. All I could do was cry.
Taylor managed to mutter three final words before going under.
"I love you."
"I love you too Taylor. I'll miss you."
With that, his eyes closed. He was gone. My only true love, gone. Forever.
