All Your Hate
We jumped into the water, and of course, it was absolutely freezing. It was really dark and really deep too. I started to feel just a little uneasy, remembering the incident I had a couple of months ago at a waterfall which slightly resembled this lake.
I suddenly felt something grab hold of my foot and pull me down, under the water. I let out a scream before going down, and tried as hard as I could to get back up. Two hands were securely put around my waist and someone pulled me close to them so that I would stop struggling.
"Scar, calm down, it was just me," I heard Andy's voice in my ear, laughing.
"You scared me," I whispered, trying to catch my breath.
"Hey, what's up? Why are you so jumpy?" he asked, tightening his grip around me.
"I don't know, it's... memories I guess. Of when Jack was after me, at the waterfall," I shivered. He turned me around so that I was looking straight into his bright blue eyes, wrapping my legs around his waist.
"Scarlette, there's nothing to worry about. He's gone now. And I promise you, I'll never let anyone or anything hurt you ever again. You're safe with me," he said.
"I know. I feel safe with you," I told him, and he smiled.
"Good. Now let's enjoy tonight with the rest of the guys," he said.
"Or..." I trailed off. He looked at me, a cheeky smile on his face.
"I have something better we could do," I said, getting up out of the water and heading back to the bus, Andy following me excitedly.
We were lying in Andy's bunk, just enjoying the quietness before everyone decided to come back. I was tracing Andy's tattoos that went all down his arm and he was watching me, his eyes shining even in the dark.
"I want another tattoo," I said suddenly.
"Hm? Of what?" he asked, sleepily.
"I was thinking of maybe getting one... together. Only if you want, that is," I said, biting my lip.
"You really want to?" he asked.
"Yeah," I said, smiling.
"Then of course, we'll get one tomorrow," he said.
"We should probably find some clothes before they come back though," I laughed, wrapping a blanket around me and getting up. He groaned and pulled me back down, making me fall on top of him.
"Stay here," he whined, and I laughed.
"No, I don't really like the idea of them all coming back and finding us naked here, in your bunk."
"Well it's not like it would be any surprise to them," he mumbled, and I punched him lightly on the shoulder.
"Come on Biersack, I'm leaving. You can follow me if you want," I winked, getting up and going to the small bathroom on the other side of the bus. I heard him groan but eventually get up, following me to the shower.
I woke up the next morning cuddled into Andy, feeling his slow breathing on my neck, telling me that he was still asleep. I checked my phone for messages, replied to some of them, and then got out of bed and changed.
After I had freshened up a little, I walked into the sitting area of the bus with the couches, where Ashley, Alexa, Jinxx, and Jake were sitting, eating breakfast bought from Starbucks. I sat down and joined them, Andy following me about 10 minutes later and sitting down next to me, pulling me close to him. Everyone had slight smirks on their faces, and I wondered what was going on.
"Okay, what?" I asked, looking at all of them.
"You two had some fun last night, huh?" asked Ash. He got his answer from the way my cheeks burned red. I tried to hide it, unsuccessfully.
"How would you know?" I asked.
"It's this vibe I get. Like post-sex happiness," he said, and I couldn't help but laugh.
"Yeah, it's all Andy though. Probably because I know him better. He's never so happy in the morning," he said.
I looked up at him and he was indeed smiling, looking down at me. I shook my head, and took another sip of coffee.
"So Scar, you ready to get going after this?" Andy asked me.
"Go where?" I asked, forgetting the plans we had made earlier. He gave me a look which made me understand and I nodded, smiling.
"Where are you guys going?" asked Jake.
"Somewhere," I said in an annoying voice that made it very obvious that there was something to hide.
"Come on, tell us what you're doing, please?" asked Alexa, giving me puppy dog eyes.
"No way! You'll see, later," I said, finishing off my food. "Ready?" I looked at Andy.
"Ready," he said, pulling on his leather jacket. We left the bus and walked down the street, looking for a tattoo parlour.
"Do you know any places here?" I asked him. I'd never been to London before, so I had no clue where we were going.
"I got a tattoo done here a couple of months back. I'm trying to find it, we'll see," he said, taking my hand. We walked down the street, looking at the different buildings and things that we saw.
"London is so amazing," I breathed, looking around. Andy laughed at how amazed I was. I couldn't help it though, I'd never been out of North America before this!
We finally located the parlour where we would get our matching tattoos. Now we only had to decide what to get.
"Something that symbolizes our relationship," Andy said. We thought for a while, and eventually decided to get a small bat on each of our right hands to symbolize our favourite movie and superhero of all time, Batman.
As the needle was being prepared for our tattoos, we waited. I had gotten tattoos before but somehow I was more nervous for this one than usual. Probably because Andy was there, getting exactly the same thing. It was almost as if it was making our relationship permanent.
Half an hour later, my tattoo was finished. I sat and waited for Andy, for some reason his took a lot longer. Finally, he walked over to me.
"Let me see," he said, smiling. I held out my hand. He put his next to it, and we compared the two. They were identical, except for mine had an 'A' under it and his had an 'S'.
"I love it," I smiled. We put bandages on it to make sure it didn't get infected for the first few days and then left the parlour.
"Me too," he replied, kissing me lightly on the lips.
"I'm hungry," I said suddenly.
"Let's go find food then," he said. We bought pizza and shared it, sitting down at one of the parks.
"What's that?" I asked, pointing to his forearm. He had taken his jacket off so that his arms were visible. There was a bandage wrapped around it.
"Oh, nothing," he said, trying to hide it.
"Andy," I glared at him until he gave up.
"Alright, fine. It was supposed to be a surprise," he muttered, but peeled off the bandage anyway. I gasped when I saw it.
"Andy..." In one of his tattoos on his arm, which was a heart, he had added another feature, it was Scarlette tattooed inside it, with an arrow going through it.
"Do you like it?" he asked, looking nervous. I moved closer and kissed his lips passionately to show him my appreciation.
"That's amazing, I love you, thank you," I said, still unable to believe it.
"I love you too Scarlette. And now I'll always have a reminder of you wherever I go," he said, referring to both the bat tattoo and my name inked into his skin.
We decided to return back to the bus because we had a show to play soon, and it was time for soundcheck. Everyone saw our tattoos and we had loads of positive reactions; they loved them just as much as we did.
The concert went amazing as well, British crowds were so different from American crowds.
"Thank you so much, London!" I yelled into the mic after we had played our last song. "It's crazy knowing that people in different countries know our band, and we love it! Now get ready for the amazing Black Veil Brides!" I said, introducing the main band of the show. The crowd went wild, and we ran off stage.
"Good luck Andy," I said, kissing his cheek.
"That's all I get?" he pouted. Kissing his pout, I laughed.
"Now go, be amazing," I smiled. They ran out on stage and started to play I Am Bulletproof, but I didn't hear much of it, as I left the venue two minutes later. I had to do something special tonight.
