My DC Story In Pictures... resurrected

Recommended Posts

Yep, my favorite pic is my avi. Just a beautiful candid shot of him outside.

AF- too funny about how it's saved on your computer. On mine it's saved as "BESTONE"!! Smile

Glad you like the new chapter. As much as I wanted them to lock themselves in a closet and go crazy on each other, I wanted to keep it as realistic as a fictional story can get!! LOL. I know from experience that when feelings are that close to the surface and you have insecurities about how you left things it's mostly awkward but underneath you can feel the love. Awww Love

Wordynerdy ... I admit I am all for the locking up in the closet ending but this ... is like you said - it is reality and I love it. Your last paragraph ... seriously there are only two people that can make tears form in my eyes within a minute and that is you and David ... dang it you two!!

Now I can not wait to see how they meet up again when they are still awkward yet still in love ... woo hoo they are still in love ... lol

Gosh! Thanks guys!! You're too good to me! I don't mean to make you cry... but I'm a big sap and do it all the time so part of me is glad I'm in good company!

I really appreciate all the compliments about my writing. It was one of my favorite subjects in college (even though I was a Biology major!). I don't get a chance to do much of it which is why I'm so addicted to this story. I haven't written anything else except for an Office, Jim/Pam fanfic last year which was extremely short. I always laughed at fanfic but I guess if the mood strikes, there's a time and place for it!!! Wink

Not sure when the next one will be posted. I'm leaving Friday for Virgina Beach to run a half marathon for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society on Sunday. I'm having trouble keeping the story brief!!!

FanFics can always be interesting.I read some a while back about the show Heroes and they were really good. Most of the ones I got into were supposed to humorous tho and were about pairing up two guy characters LOL! Shocked

Good luck and have fun in the race, and don't be afraid to just chillax on the beach one day! Wink

LOL about the two guy characters AF! That must have been interesting.

Thanks! I'm definitely planning on chillaxing (Very Happy) on the beach with my hubby and kids. The race is one of ones in the Rock N Roll marathon series so there will be concerts all weekend (mostly 80's bands which I am SO excited for- En Vogue, Billy Idol, B52s!!) and local bands at every mile along the course. I can't wait!

I grabbed his arm and pulled him back down. “Didn’t get enough last night?” he asked, laughing. His eyes were more awake now and dancing with delight. “Nope” I said. “I’m never satisfied.” “Well, that IS a problem, but I have to get going and so do you. I can work my magic later.”. He looked at me with a sly grin that told me despite what he was saying he was willing to play.




I saw that his will was getting weaker. He laid back down beside me and I wiggled my way closer to him, resting my head on his chest. His arm naturally curled around me. I lightly raked my fingers up and down his other arm and then moved my way down his body. I began tracing circles on his abdomen.


This is pretty random and backtracking waaaaay back to chapter 5, but.. What picture was supposed to be here? scratch

Hi there! I'm back from my half-marathon. I actually finished which was amazing! Woo hoo! Anyway, the next update will probably happen tomorrow. I'll be collecting pictures for it today. Sorry about the missing picture in chapter 5. I've been cleaning up my Photobucket and must have deleted that one by mistake. Have no fear, I'll track it down and fix my story right up! Please let me know if you see any other ones that are missing. Thanks girls! Hope you had a good weekend!

Disclaimer: The following story is a work of fiction. I do not know David Cook (but would very much like to!!!) or anybody affiliated with him. Any similarity to actual events is purely coincidental. The pictures below do not belong to me. If the pictures belong to you and you would like me to remove them, please PM me. This story is created for entertainment purposes only. I respect David Cook as an artist and musical genius. I also find him ridiculously attractive. That is all.

Song to accompany the story:
Far Away by Nickelback (lyrics here)

Significant verse:
I love you
I've loved you all along
I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
And you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore


Enjoy!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Part 15

The rest of the event went well and my bosses were thrilled with how everything turned out. Another feather in my cap… yay! I was in a good mood in the taxi on the way back to the airport the next afternoon. I had plenty of time for my flight so I could leisurely stroll through the terminal and not rush at breakneck speed like I usually do. Twenty minutes later I found myself waiting in line to get through security. I was doing my usual OCD check of my tickets and boarding pass when the man in front of me bent over and I got a good look at the person in front of him. My jaw dropped when I saw it was David!!




He looked amazing. If I didn’t know any better I would have never guessed he was a rock star. He was casually wearing his backpack and baseball hat like any college kid in their twenties. It made him all the more attractive to me and left me flustered.




I didn’t know what to do. I really wanted the chance to thank him again for performing last night but I didn’t know how to get his attention without it being awkward. Then I saw the iced blended coffee in the hand of the guy in front of me. I don’t know where the thought came from but I acted without really thinking it through. As the line moved forward, I pretended to stumble and bumped into his shoulder which sent iced coffee about 3 feet in the air. It landed all over the poor man and David’s shoes. “I am SO sorry” I said and rather meant it because the bump was way more dramatic than I had intended. At the sound of my voice David looked up from his shoes, saw me and burst into a fit of laughter.




I couldn’t help but laugh too. Security pulled all three of us to the side and I did my best to clean the poor man up as David and I exchanged silent looks and tried to keep from cracking.




Neither the man nor security were as amused as we were. When the situation was finally resolved we made our way through security.




As I reached to pick up my computer bag from the conveyor belt David beat me to it and grabbed it instead.




When I shot him a questioning look, he joked “You just demolished that innocent latte… I’d hate to see what you’d do to a laptop. It’s better off with me for the time being.” and leveled me with such a playful gaze.




“Thanks.” I said. “Sorry about your shoes.” “No you’re not. I think you might have done that intentionally.” he teased. I looked guilty and said “You caught me. What can I say? I didn’t have a handkerchief handy to toss in your direction.”. He chuckled, said “Too bad, that would have been a lot less sticky. Come on, lets find your gate.” and started walking away with my laptop. I had no choice but to follow him.




We found a departure monitor and found out my flight home was actually delayed about 45 minutes. David’s flight to LA didn’t leave for another hour so we decided to grab a beer in the airport bar. It was dark and fairly empty since it was only 3:00. Most of the people there were glued to a baseball game on TV or chatting on their cell phones. “This is nice.” David said as the bartender served our drinks. “I remember being on the other side of the bar not too long ago.”




“I’m sure it’s hard for you to go anywhere these days without being recognized.” I said sympathetically. “Tell me about it. Crazy fans are always trying to snap pictures of me or spill things on me to get my attention.” I smacked him lightly on the arm. It felt good to be here with him like this. I could almost pretend the past few months had never happened and we were back to where we used to be. It felt right. Seeing him smile like that was all I needed to be happy.




All of a sudden we heard my flight number over the loudspeaker. Apparently mechanical problems were delaying my flight another 2 hours. I groaned. “Hey, let me see about changing my flight. I could keep you company.” David quickly offered. I balked at first but he insisted. I didn’t try that hard to stop him a second time. He immediately got on the phone and called someone. After 5 minutes he hung up and announced “All set, my new flight is in 2 and a half hours. I couldn’t let you sit here in a bar all by yourself. Besides, we haven’t really had a chance to catch up.”. I was grateful for the extra time I was getting to spend with him. It was amazing sitting there talking to him like that. When he makes eye contact with you he makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world. Not many people can do that and I had missed it. It was actually hard to remember your words when he was looking at you that way.




After the second beer he excused himself to use the restroom. When he returned he noticed the lonely businessman who had made himself comfortable in the seat next to me. I rolled my eyes at David. I had been trying to ignore him with no luck. The guy was persistent. That is until David walked up. “Hey watch yourself man… she’s a heartbreaker. I’m serious, she’ll make you think she’s head over heels and then pull the rug out from underneath you. I’d stay away if I were you.” David stood there with his arms folded and waited for the guy to make his move.




He looked David up and down and apparently either decided I wasn’t worth the trouble or recognized David and didn’t want to end up in a tabloid for his wife to see because he got up and hid himself in a corner. I was grateful he was gone but was left with what David had said. It had stung a little bit. He had tried to act like it was a joke but I could tell part of him meant what he said. As he sat down I said “Thanks.”. “No problem.” he answered, “I can’t stand leeches like that.” There was a pause. I broke the silence. “Yeah... so... I was wondering when that whole thing was going to come up. I can’t tell you how sorry I am David… really. I’ve had a long time to think about it and…”. He cut me off “Oh that… water under the bridge my dear, that was then and you did what you had to do. I‘m over it.” He sounded convincing but I could tell that he was trying too hard to act like it didn’t matter. I knew this wasn’t the time or the place and let it go. If he didn’t want to talk about it, I didn’t want to force him. I looked at him and could tell he was feeling a mix of emotions. It made me sad all over again but I tried to push those feelings away.




He totally caught me off guard with his next question. “So, clearly you attract winners. Anybody new in your life?” I stared at him blankly for a second and then remembered to respond. “Uh, no. Well, someone tried to set me up one time a few months ago but it just didn’t work out.” David smiled. Whether he meant to or not he looked relieved.




“How about you?” I asked, not sure if I really wanted to know. “Nothing serious. A few here and there to pass the time. You know…” I took it all in stride which surprised him a little. “You are a red blooded American male after all!” I declared. “Amen!” David said a little too loudly. We both raised our glasses and smiled at each other.




Our time together eventually ran short. I checked my watch and told him I needed to be going. He asked if it would be okay to call or text me sometime. “I’ve really enjoyed this.” he said. “I’ve missed your sense of humor. The girls in LA don’t get me or maybe I don’t get them. Anyway, are you at the same number?” I was overjoyed. “Yeah, but let me give you my new work number and cell just in case. I’m hardly ever home.” He waited patiently while I got a new bar napkin and wrote down my new digits. I must admit, the way he was staring at me as I did it was a little unnerving and made my stomach flutter.




I felt giddy as I handed him the napkin. “Would you like an escort ma’am?” he said very politely. “Thanks, but I can find my way. Besides your gate is in the opposite direction. I don’t want you to miss your flight yet again. Thanks again for doing that, I loved the company.”. I hoped I didn’t sound too love struck. “My pleasure entirely.” was his response as he casually took my hand and gave it a quick peck. That gesture made me just about melt. We said our goodbyes and I tore myself away. As I walked to the gate I thought of him, as I boarded the plane he was on my mind, as I flew back home I could concentrate on nothing other than him. I had been given a second chance to have David in my life and I was going to do everything I could to not mess it up this time. The quick kiss on the hand was far from a declaration of love and forgiveness from him but it was a start. At this point I was grateful for just being next to him. Those hours in the bar just then had been the best of my life since he walked out my door. I closed my eyes, smiled to myself and wondered if he was thinking of me too.

Hope your second day of school went well AF and that everyone else has had a good day. One of my little ones is sick and the other got in trouble at school (which literally never happens) so it's been an eventful day around the wordynerdy house!

I have a favor to ask. Does anyone have the picture of David in an airplane looking out the window? I think it's from the top 3 homecoming visit. I swore I had it but can't find it anywhere. If you can find it, can you please PM me? Thank you guys!!!!

ETA: I got the picture from the "Pictures" section. Yay!!

Plus you got a backbend! Amazing to witness I'm sure! Lucky girl! Smile

LOL, I think Archie spaces out a lot in general!! Although, I don't know how they all deal with all the people shouting and talking to them at one time. It would freak me out! No, I didn't get to meet any of them in Charlotte. The crazy crowd was part of the reason why. There were these girls basically running up the back of my friend and I, screaming to David about how their cousin could sing and that plus Dave's reaction just made me sad so we backed off and watched from afar. I hope I get to meet him someday too but I would love for it to be in an unexpected and organic way, where I can be myself and not compete with 1,000 other fan girls! Maybe someday when he's 62 and his following dies down a little!! LOL Very Happy

Song to accompany the story: Well, this isn't the obvious choice but I came across my Radiohead CD the other day so I decided to pick this one just because it made me smile:

Thinking About You by Radiohead (lyrics here)

Significant verse:
Been thinking about you, and there's no rest
Shit, I still love you, still see you in bed
But I'm playing with myself, what do you care
When I'm not there

*Here's the obvious choice (but still good. What can I say, I'm a big sap and go for the romantic crap):

Collide by Howie Day (lyrics here)

Significant verse:
Even the best fall down sometime
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I
Collide

Enjoy!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Part 16

The next few weeks were busy at work for me sending out “thank yous” for the event in NYC and making travel arrangements to go back there to start the preliminary planning for a smaller fundraiser. The long hours have been made a lot easier by the random texts and phone calls I’ve been get from David. They come at odd hours and sometimes I go for days without hearing from him so I always look forward to them when I do. I like to picture what he might be doing as he’s texting me some silly story, joke or just a simple sentence saying hello.




It helps me feel connected to him and reminds me that seeing him again in NY wasn’t a dream or wishful thinking. It happened and will happen again soon. Coincidentally he has a show in NYC during the time I will be there. Okay, it wasn’t exactly coincidence. Another person from my office was supposed to go the week before but I begged, pleaded and bought her off with a month of chai teas to go in her place and convinced my boss to let me go the following week instead so I could combine it with a trip out to LA I already had scheduled. What can I say? I’ve learned how to be assertive and don’t mind using everything in my arsenal. I had to see him on a big stage in front of a large crowd.




When he found out I was going to be in NYC I could hear him get excited. “So, do you think you’d have time to drop by my show?” he asked tentatively. “Sure, that sounds like fun.” I answered casually as if that wasn’t my plan all along! I was leaving tomorrow and was picking up my dry cleaning before work when I got a text from him, “I’m in NYC, doing a.m. show. Need coffee… and zzzzzzs. Where the hell r u?”.




I texted back “At cleaners… shirts $1!!!!”. He responded, “Don‘t get crazy. C U tomorrow. Call me l8r.”. When I did talk to him later, we made arrangements for me to pick up my ticket and backstage pass at Will Call the next day. I was so excited that I could hardly concentrate on work when I got to NYC that morning. I quickly finished my meetings and whatever else I had to do and made my way to the arena. David was outside meeting his fans when I stepped out of the cab.




I made sure to approach slowly and kind of hid behind a column so I could watch him. He was having such a good time and I was amazed at how he stayed so true to himself even with his fans and seemed to really enjoy the craziness.




I loved observing him and smiled along with him. I was actually so caught up in the scene that before I knew it he had finished up and was heading inside. I watched him disappear though the door and stayed where I was for another minute. In the wake of his presence his fans were left on an emotional high. They were hugging each other, reviewing their digital pictures and sharing items they had autographed. The effect he had on people and how he interacted with them was incredible.




I headed over to Will Call to pick up my tickets and pass. When the ticket agent saw my “credentials” he called security and they led me backstage to find David. He was talking to Michael, a friend of his from the competition, and had his back turned. Michael saw me, smiled, poked David and pointed in my direction. David turned his head and for a second I was rendered speechless. I have always loved his nose and the way the light fell on his face spotlighted that beautiful feature perfectly.




David quickly smiled and then turned the goof on, saying “It's you! Who let this loony in here? Security!”




and came over to give me a big hug. Man did that feel good. When David hugs you, you know you’re being embraced. He uses his entire body to envelope you and make you feel connected to him. It’s one of the best feelings in the world.




We spent a couple of hours talking and he and Michael showed me around backstage. I got to see all the equipment and where David waits for the show to start.




I sat in on the sound check and got to wait with him in his dressing room before the show began. David was so excited. He was just doing a few shows here and there as he worked on his album to kind of introduce himself around the country. So far the response had been great he said. I couldn’t wait to see for myself. Soon I was in the crowd in my front row seats and David appeared on stage.





I was surprised at my own reaction. I had never screamed so loudly in all my life! He was unbelievable up there.




A total rock star if there ever was one.



I didn't want it to end but eventually he came out for the encore.




After the show, different celebrities were coming in and out of his dressing room. They were all very nice and complimentary which David seemed to appreciate but when it was time to go he looked relieved. We left the arena and got into a limo headed for the airport. David was flying back to LA tonight as was I so we had planned to take the red eye there together. When the limo started moving David turned to me and asked, “So, who were you most excited to meet?” I thought for a minute and finally said ‘Oh, uh… would it sound weird if I said your guitar tech Timmy? He‘s really fun to talk to.” David chuckled and said “No celebrities left you star struck?”. “Nope, I’ve met a few in my line of work and I’ve come to realize they all put their boots on one foot at a time just like everyone else.”




He seemed pleased with my answer and said “That’s very mature of you.”. “Well, I HAVE changed if you haven’t noticed.” I prodded. “Of course I have. I notice everything.” David said softly and looked me straight in the eyes. My heart skipped a beat as we sat there for what seemed like hours looking at each other in the back of the dark limo.




David blinked first and looked away. He continued, “Like I’ve noticed you’re spending a lot more on shoes these days”. He had totally changed the subject and tone of the conversation. I rolled with it, smiled and looked down at my feet self consciously. “Well, I can’t help that shoes are so pretty!” I confessed. Just then the limo pulled to a stop. We had arrived at the airport. We were cutting it close as our flight left in 45 minutes. We hurried through security and made it on the plane.




I had paid extra so I could upgrade to first class and sit with David. It was worth it because the seats were so roomy. We were both exhausted. After a nightcap, the flight attendant brought us pillows and blankets and we turned down the light. David said “I hate to spend our time together sleeping.” and then yawned. Of course that made me yawn and I said “No worries, I don’t think I’m going to be very good company anyway. Plus, we both have to hit the ground running tomorrow. Sleep is what you need.”. He smiled dreamily.




“I’m so glad to have your friendship again. I missed you.” he said quietly as he laid his head on his pillow. “I know, me too.” I said as his eyes closed.




“By the way, you were amazing tonight.” I added. He grinned as he drifted off to sleep but not before adding “All your screaming helped pump me up. I had no idea you were so loud!”. “Ha, ha! Go to sleep.” I said but didn’t really need to. He was already snoring lightly. I’m not sure what exactly his friendship comment had meant but I realized that no matter what I might want, I was going to have to take my cues from him. If friendship was all he could do right now, I would be the best friend in the world to him. It wasn’t a hard job. I laid my head on my pillow next to his and studied his face. I wanted to touch him, to caress his cheek so badly.




I remembered the hug from earlier in the day and felt warm inside. I fought sleep as long as I could but finally gave in. I didn’t think my dreams could compare to the perfection of that moment.
