“Sure I’d love to!” I smiled at him.
“Pick you up at 7? We’ll have a bite to eat beforehand.”
“Yea that’s sounds great.” The employee handed me my drink . We said goodbye to Kayla and that we’d see her later tonight. Jon and her exchanged numbers. Sweet! We piled back into my trailblazer and shortly arrived back on set. Before Amanda left for her make-up trailer, I pulled her back. I looked around to see if any of the guys were around but thankfully there was no sign .“Spencer asked me out tonight.”
“WHAT?” she was as shocked as I was. “what happened to Brendon?”
“Nothing. Spencer just asked me on a date.” she still couldn’t believe I said yes.
“Chat later.” she went to go touch up the boys make-up while I changed. “Brendon’s pissed.” she told me as she fixed my make-up.
“Because Spencer asked you on a date.” Oh shit. I do like Brendon more than Spencer, but we will see how tonight goes.
“Brendon can still ask me on a date. Spence and I are not boyfriend and girlfriend.”
“True.” she told me. “But he’s still mad.” I shrugged and walked out of the trailer. I discovered Brendon and Spencer having words.
“She only said yes because she felt sorry for you.” Brendon screamed in his face.
“No, you just didn’t ask her in time. You really shouldn’t be afraid to ask her. She is very nice and easy to talk with.” Aww thanks Spencer!
“I know why do you think I like her!” Whoa. No one was expecting that.
“Guys cool it.” I made myself noticeable, not that I was purposely hiding or anything. “Oh hey Alyssa.” Ryan waved. Both Brendon and Spencer’s heads whipped around to face me.
“Hi Lys.” Spencer told me.
“Hey.” came from Brendon. He ran his fingers through his hair. I’ve noticed he does that when he’s nervous.
“Hey guys. What are you fighting over?” I asked.
“Well…uh…thing is…” is all that I got.
“I’m going to make an assumption and say myself.” They nodded. “What seems to be the problem then?”
“Spencer asked you out, but Brendon wanted to and now he’s pissed.”
“Oh. Well,” I took a deep breathe. “As of right now, Spence and I are just going on one date. We’re not boyfriend and girlfriend, correct?” I looked to him.
“Correct, I just thought, you being a drummer, you’d be interested in seeing this band.”
“And I thank you for remembering that.” I smiled. “See Brendon, you have nothing to worry about yet.”
“So then did you want to go out tomorrow?”
“Tomorrow is Thursday?” He nodded. “Nope I’m sorry I can’t.
“Don’t tell me you’ve got a date with Jon?”
“NO! Don’t jump to conclusions. Every Thursday night, the girls and I go out to a movie. We call it diva night.” He looked at me dumbfounded.
“Sounds good to me.”
“Ok! Everyone line up!” That we did. The shoot we were working on involved Brendon stealing me away from Ryan. It was cute. We were running in a field of sunflowers. The only part that hurt was the tug-of-war. Yep, they had to pull me and of course Brendon wins. I’m thankful it’s not Spencer and Brendon doing the scene or I don’t think I would have any arms left. After Brendon woos me, he suppose to lean in and almost kiss me. They first couple times we shot it he did, but it wasn’t until the last time did he really and actually kiss me.
“I liked that.” the director commented. “I don’t think the fake kissing was doing any justice. Let’s try it again and really lay one on her.” Oh great! I saw Spence glare at him. “Action.” Everything was good and then it came to the kiss. I was so nervous now that I knew it was coming. Brendon just smiled and I smiled back before he laid one on me. He managed to take it one step further again by lifting me up and spinning me around. After he set me on the ground he wouldn’t stop kissing and he wanted to French me too, but I stopped and got out of his warm clutches. Dammit, he left me breathless and I liked it. “That was great! I think that’s the shot we need. Thank you and that’s a wrap!” We all cheered! I couldn’t wait to see the video! Unfortunately, that won’t be until all the editing is done. And who knows how long that could take.
“Hey.” it was Amanda. I sat down in the chair so she could remove all this make-up.
“He kissed me.”
“Which he?” was the reply.
“He, Brendon.” I told her. “ It wasn’t in the script but he just kissed me on the lips. I hate to admit it, but I did like it. He left me breathless.”
“Lyssa Leigh!” I shot a ‘what?’ look. “That’s so cute!”
“Thanks, but now we’ve got to get you and Ryan together.”
“That’s ok. I don’t think he likes me.” she stated.
“Are you sure?” she stopped wiping off my cheek.
“Is there something your hiding from me?”
“Like how excited he was when he found out that you were going to be at Panera’s. Quote on quote, he said, ‘I’m definitely there now.’.” she let a little shriek.
“Wow.” she finished up my make-up just as Ryan walked in.
“I’ll meet you back here after I change.” I shouted over my shoulder and winked. After I changed I was waiting outside Amanda’s trailer when Spencer approached me.
“Is there anything you don’t like to eat?” he asked me.
“I don’t like seafood, or gyros and some other things that aren’t coming to mind.” I laughed as did he.
“That’s ok. I know just the place. See you at seven!” he kissed me on the cheek and left for his car. As soon as he left Brendon came out of the trailer. “Hey Lys!”
“Hi.” I replied. It was awkward for a moment. “I’m sorry for changing it up a bit. It looked great in playback.”
“It’s ok.” I didn’t really mind.
“Well I hope you have fun on your date with Spencer.” God do I want to kiss him again.
“Thank you.” he walked away. And Amanda came out of the trailer. We walked in silence to my car. Like I promised, I put on F4 for her.
“Ah! I can’t contain it!!!” I gave her a quizzical look. “Ryan asked me out for tonight.”
“Oh that’s awesome! Kudos to you!”
“Thank you, we’re going to the local Pizza shop and then to the mall. I know nothing fancy, but hey it works!!! Where is Spencer taking you?”
“Well I don’t know exactly. He said we’re getting something to eat and going to see his friends band.”
“Nice.” We sang to F4 at the top of our lungs till we reached our apartment.
“I heard you guys coming down the street.” Kayla laughed.
“You look all pretty.”
“Yea I have date tonight.”
“As do we!” Amanda and I said in unison. Then left to get ready. It neared 7 -o-clock and Amanda already left on her date. It was just Kayla and I. the doorbell rang and I opened it to find Brendon on the other side.

The Honda Civic tour which stars our very own Panic(!) at the Disco released it's tour dates this past week. Of course they are not coming to Pittsburgh...why would they make my life easy. Instead a group of friends and I decided to go see them in Columbus Ohio. My goal is to go see them in Cleveland then drive and see them in Columbus. But that will only work if i have enough money. This show should be AMAZING! They haven't toured in most a year so they should have a lot of energy built up. Also going on tour with them is The Hush Sound (whom I've seen and met)and Motion City Soundtrack (whom I'm very excited to see.)
Yesterday Panic(!) also released their new single Nine In The Afternoon. It's sounds incredible, i added it to my profile for your listening pleasure. I'm addicted to the song. I can't wait to hear the rest of the album. Also the video should be released for it soon but here are some icons i found of the video. Looks very interesting. I'm hoping they will premiere the video soon! I'm uber excited for it!
That's it for now... stay tuned for the next chapter of my story!!!

“And Action!” the director screamed. The music blasted through the speakers of the outside location of the music video. I was playing the part of the lead girl. Whom the two band members we’re fighting over. It was quite interesting because they are extremely hot! My job was to run through a field of sunflowers with my love then the other member was to steal me away. Fun! Right now they were shooting the band playing in the field of sunflowers so I decided to call my best friend and see what she wanted to do for lunch. She was the make-up artist for the band currently, and that’s partially how I got this job in the first place. I rummaged through my purse for the cell phone.
“Hey you!” I said when she answered.
“Hi. How’s your shoot going?”
“Great. The guys are really sweet and nice, plus hot!”
“I know, but Ryan is mine.”
“That’s fine as long as I can have Brendon.”
“Sure. He’s all yours.” she said.
“Thanks, but you want to meet up for lunch?” I asked. ”That’s the whole reason I called. “
“Yea, that’s fine. Should we call Kay?”
“Yes. If you want to call because I don’t know when they’ll need me, if soon.”
“Give me 5 and I will. Panera’s?”
“Of course.” I replied then I saw Brendon motion for me. “I’ve gotta go. See you at 12.” and hung up before she could reply then ran over to him. “Yes? Do they need me?”
“No we’re doing close up shots and they are on Spencer. But I was wondering if you wanted go out to lunch.” shit! Why didn’t I wait until after to call Amanda.
“I would love to but…I’ve made plans with Amanda and Kayla.” he looked bummed. “ But if you want you’re more than welcome to join us.”
“What’s going on?” Ryan came over and stuck his nose into our business.
“Discussing lunch plans. Chat later.” Brendon swiftly told him.
“Oh cool where?” He looked toward me.
“Sorry. I’m coming. I love their food especially their Tuscan chicken sandwiches. Who’s all going?:
“So far, Amanda, Kayla, our friend, and Brendon .”
“Amanda is coming? I’m definitely there now.” I gave Brendon a quizzical look. He just raised his eyebrow in return. Jon joined our little group then..
“I’m hungry. I wish it was lunch.”
“Jon you’re always hungry.” concluded Ryan. We all just laughed. Then he had to leave to do his close up shot. It took another hour to finish up. I changed out of my costume and into sweats before meeting Amanda Jean.
“Amanda I have a surprise for you.” as soon as I said that Ryan, Brendon, Jon and Spencer rounded the corner.
“Look who it is!” came from Spencer.
“Our lovely and talented make up artist.” added Jon.
“Hey guys.” she waved. “Kayla said she would meet us there but she might be late. She’s in the studio.”
“That’s typical Kayla.” I laughed. Amanda nodded her head in agreement.
“Who’s car are we taking? Or do we need two?” Ryan asked.
“Ryan! When you’d get here?” she was taken back.
“With the rest of the guys.” he said. She looked dumbfounded.
“There’s one, two, three, four, five, six. We might need two.” Brendon counted.
“No, I have a trailblazer. We can fit.” I led them to it. We all piled in and I turned on the engine. F4 blared from the speakers .
“What is that?” Brendon asked from behind.
“F4.” Amanda told him. She started to sing ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love.’ but I turned it off. “Hey!”
“Sorry we’ll listen to it on the way home tonight.”
“Ok.” We pulled up to Panera’s in 10 mins. And Kay beat us there!
“Hey you! How’d you beat us?” I hugged her.
“Well the studio is two doors down.”
“Studio?” asked Jon.
“Yea, I’m a back up singer for a new band right now. I was recording a song.” she explained.
“Oh awesome.” he said.
“Kayla, this is Jon, Spencer, Brendon, and Ryan., Guys this is our best friend Kayla.” Amanda did the introducing. Jon seemed to take interest. I approve. We ordered, sat down and quickly started a conversation.
“How’s day two treating you?” asked Spencer.
“It’s wonderful. I love it.” I took a spoonful of my soup in a bread bowl. “I also love this soup.”
“What did you get again?” Kayla asked.
“Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice.” was my reply. “But I think I’m going to get an IC caramel before heading back to the shoot.”
“That sounds good.” We finished up eating and I walked up to the counter and ordered my coffee drink. While I was waiting for them to make it, Spencer approached me.
“Hey I was wondering if you weren’t busy tonight that may be we can grab a local show. My friend’s band is performing.” Wow why is Spencer asking me out? He’s really hot too. And I’m not tied down to anyone, even though I wish it was Brendon. But that’s ok.
