Where Have You Been? (Michael Clifford LS)
once we made it to the fair I took a deep breath grabbing my red bull and clipping the pass the stage manager gave me to my shorts, we parked behind the stage as the manager set up the microphones for us "thanks for helping us" he smiled "no problem, it's my job" he said walking over to the front gate when I saw someone wave "hey Asher" she smiled "hey it's Bex right?" she nods "thank you so much for doing this for me" she said "hey we wouldn't be able to play for anyone if it wasn't for you guys" Jace said she blushed "thanks" she smiled "seriously thou Bex without fans we would just be playing for ourselves so it was no trouble" she slipped her phone in her pocket "do you guys need help? my cousin is in a band so I help him out all the time" I just nod "sure come on" so she followed me into the trailer and helped set up the drum kit. "done!" the four of us shout "thanks for your help Bex" Rebel said she just shrugs "better then being at home" she simply replied "can I tell you something Bex?" I ask she nods "you are so calm for a fan" Rebel interrupts "agreed" Jace says she blushed again "anyway Bex follow me" so we walked over to the dressing room and grabbed a bottle of soda "you said your cousin was in a band… what band is he in? you look a lot like a friend of mine" I say "let me guess I look like Jack Barakat but in girl form" she says then it hit me "yea!" she just laughs slightly "yea he is my cousin, I'm trying to get him to let me move in with him" she said I looked and I noticed something "is that a bruise?" she suddenly goes pale "Bex if someone is hurting you please let me help you" I say tears came to her eyes "that's why I want to move in with Jack, he is like my brother but my mom died and ever since then my dad blames me and gets drunk all the time and he" she was sobbing "shh let me talk to Jack, he is one of my best friends I can convince him to do anything and besides I don't mind plus your health is at stake" she just nods and I pulled my phone out "do you have evidence that your dad hurts you" she nods and I dial Jack's number, he picked up after a few rings "HEYYYY ASHER" he shouted I just laugh "hey Jack so I met your super awesome cousin the other night at the 5 seconds of summer show" he laughs "let me guess I only have one super awesome cousin and her name is Bex" he said "yup, she's with me now but uh we need to have a serious talk" it was silent for a few minutes "ok whats wrong?" he asked "your cousin needs you Jack you need to take her away from her dad he is abusing her and she needs to be safe" I say I heard a deep breath "I want to but I don't know what to do" he said Bex looked away "that's why I'm calling, you need to call child protective services and then you file to keep her I will help you, she can stay at my place tonight but tomorrow meet me at the coffee shop and we can help you out alright" Bex looks up at me "alright let me clean out the extra room then she can have it Alex and I have been trying to get Bex out of there so she can come live with the guys and I " Bex smiled "now Bex tomorrow when your dad is at work pack your things and get as much evidence as you can alright" Jack said "ok, thank you so much Jack" we talked for a little while longer before we hung up she hugged me close "thank you Ash" I just smiled and let her hug for as long as she needed, once sound check was over I let Bex stay side stage for the show so I could make sure she was safe, I've been in her place and I needed to help her. the gates were opening and we were on the side of the stage warming up "you ready?" Rebel asked Jace and I both nod "Gone Rouge" the crowd was shouting our name "well lets do this" and we ran out on the stage "hey LA how is everyone dong tonight!" the arena was small but there were a few hundred people here I smiled as the crowd just got louder "so who came to have fun tonight?" more screams "well tonight just so happens to be our bands five year anniversary so we plan to make this show one of the best shows ever!" I started strumming on my guitar then busted out laughing "wait what song are we starting with?" Rebel asked "why our new one of course" I smile the crowd continued to get louder "well we have a new song for you guys tonight I hope you like it" Jace says into his microphone.
