The venue went dark, and the screams were at fever pitch, both male and female. The excitement was at a fever pitch, and it seemed to get higher with each passing second. The curtain rose, and the band appeared on stage to blistering screams and hollers.
They merely looked around at the audience with their eyes, not moving their heads. Nico was still and calm with the electric guitar in his hands. He didn’t say a word and only the movement of his chest rising told everyone he was alive.
It was at that moment when the Nico Kaitlyn thought she knew was transformed into a different person. He was a rock god in the flesh and her body became so alert just by staring at him.
Kaitlyn rubbed her arms and felt the goosebumps formed. She was nervous. She was excited. She waited on bated breath for Nico to do something, anything… she needed to hear that note, that chord, that guitar riff, and her life would be perfect.
Nico closed his eyes and then…a guitar riff erupted the crowd and Kaitlyn thought she climaxed.
He sang with the intensity of a seasoned performer. His hard body twisted with every fluid movement, like he was simply responding to the beat. Every line, breath, and guitar lick felt like Nico was taking to the audience–their hopes, their fears, and their love.
They played original songs. They played cover songs. They played songs from old acts like Fleetwood Mac, Guns N’ Roses, and Genesis, to some of the newer acts like System of a Down.
The crowd knew every lyric of Black Sonic’s original music. Every verse, every chord had the crowd of a thousand-deep shouting back to them. Nico had them on a string they wanted to bounce on.
When the band took a break, Kaitlyn watched with the intensity of a groupie as Nico sat down on the stage and strum the acoustic guitar. His chest was coated in sweat and he smiled occasionally, as his name was called out by random audience members.
It was only him on the stage. He stopped to drink from a bottled water before he continued. Some members asked him questions, and he answered as he strummed.
“Can I get a free room?”
“What’s it in for me?”
“Whatever you want, Nico!”
“I need better negotiating deals than that.” He replied, and the audience laughed.
“Are you going to perform my favorite song tonight?”
“What’s your favorite song?”
“That Taylor Swift one! I like your version better!”
Nico smiled. The song in question was “Lover.” He never fancied himself much of a Taylor Swift fan and was hard-pressed to call himself one, but when he first heard that song, he immediately loved it.
It was the simplicity of the song that drew him in. A song about two people connecting and reconnecting. It was a song anyone could relate, and he suddenly admired Taylor’s penmanship.
He strummed the guitar and adjusted the microphone. He searched the audience to see if he could spot Kaitlyn and a soft smile formed on his face when he did. He continued searching the crowd and saw his parents canoodling with each other.
His plan worked. He was winning Kaitlyn over and his parents were reconciled. “This one is dedicated to all the lovers tonight…” The crowd hollered and shouted his name as Nico played on.
“He dedicated that to everyone, but you know it’s about you, right?” Amber leaned over to Kaitlyn.
Kaitlyn didn’t respond. She recognized the song and felt her heart about to leap out of her chest. There was no way Nico could have known that was one of her favorite songs. It didn’t matter if he had a dossier on her the size of an encyclopedia; no one could have known that.
It was at that moment, in front of hundreds of strangers who liked the music and lusted after Nico, when Kaitlyn realized she was in love with the man.
