You're The Closest To Heaven That I'll Ever Be
What is love?
Andy smiled, looking around at the rest of the guys tuning up their guitars or talking with Chance.; all of them had their own unique war paint style.
"You promise the amps will work this time?" Andy asked and Lily laughed.
"Yes. I promise they will work this time. Everything should go perfectly. I promise." Lily assured. "Now go, you're up!" She lightly pushed him towards the stage and watched him and the rest of he band get ready to play their first song.
The crowd wasn't too big and they didn't expect it to be after their first gig. But they had to start somewhere and hopefully it would take off eventually.
As Andy began to sing, Lily felt a hand on her shoulder. She turned to see Chance standing by her, looking out at Andy and the guys on stage.
"You're very proud of him. I can tell." Chance said, still looking straight ahead.
Lily looked out at Andy, jumping around the stage having the time of his life. "I am, Chance. I'm very proud of Andy. He's grown up so much in just the past few months. And now he's going after something he really wants to do."
"You love him, don't you?" He looked down at her and she looked down at the floor.
"What is love? I don't know. Maybe? I don't know what love is."
"Well, he loves you. That's for sure. He never shuts up about you and just the way he looks at you, the way he needs you. He loves you." Chance put an arm around Lily. "And I think the longer you're with him, the more you'll realize that you love him, too."
Lily nodded but didn't say anything. She just wanted to think about everything Chance had said. She wanted to just soak it all in and absorb it. Lily watched as Andy said goodnight to the crowd and run off stage towards her. He threw his arms around her, almost knocking her to the ground.
"You did amazing!" Lily enthused.
"I know! They loved us!" Andy agreed.
"Another group hug!" Jake exclaimed and the rest of the boys enclosed Lily and Andy in the middle of the group hug.
"You're big on group hugs, huh Jake?" Lily managed to say.
"Can't... Breathe..." Andy choked out and everyone let go.
"So, who's up for a party?" Chance offered.
"Chance..." Andy put a hand to his forehead.
"Oh, come on, Andy. It could be fun." Lily said.
"Oh, fuck yes! I love parties!" CC exclaimed, jumping up and down. "I'm a professional party animal! Let's go! Please, please, please?!"
"Will there be hot chicks?" Ashley asked.
"Most likely." Chance responded.
"Alright, I'm in." Ashley agreed.
"Come on, Andy." Lily whined and pouted. "I've never been to a party before. Puh-lease?"
Andy grimaced. "Well..."
"Maybe you and I could, you know, be alone." She whispered in his ear.
Andy's eyes widened. This was a side of Lily he hadn't seen before. What had gotten into her?
"I'm in." Andy agreed.
Lily took him by the hand and they followed Chance outside to their cars to follow him to the party.
