Eleanor stood off to the sidelines watching the male. She liked the fact that he was singing still. He had the voice of a country singer, and she knew he was going to go places. She bit her lip lightly as she felt her phone buzzing in her pocket. She slid it out and read the text message. [i Are you really avoiding me Ele? You can't avoid me forever, I wanna see you. Please?] the message read. Eleanor rolled her eyes and typed a message back. [b [i I'm not in the mood to deal with you.]] was all it said.
A moment later another one came in. [i Please Ele? Meet me somewhere and we can talk.] She sighed lightly and rolled her eyes. She ignored the message and slid her phone back into her pocket. She looked back out at Kane, and she felt her heart fluttering inside of her chest. The only way to get the bastard off her back, was to tell him she was dating someone. Even if it was her best friend. She slid her phone out, and typed another message. This time a bit longer than the last one.
[b [i I know you wanna see me, and see where things go, but you need to understand I'm dating someone now. I can't have you hanging around me anymore. You honestly make me uncomfortable, and I don't think my boyfriend would like it if you keep messaging me. So please, don't make me get him involved.]] she sent back. She slid her phone back into her pocket and looked up. Kane was coming towards her, and she broke out into a smile. [b "You sounded amazing"] she said wrapping her arms around his neck, hugging him back. She then kissed his cheek and stood back.
[b "Can we go now though? I'm hungry, and I haven't eaten anything in a couple of days. Plus you need to catch me up on everything"] she said grinning up at the male. She had been one lucky girl to snag him as a friend, and she felt slightly bad about lying to Marcus about dating someone. She stood there, and waited for Kane to say something about going to get a bite to eat.
"All I can think about.... is gettin' you home..." Kane sang following the lyrics on the karaoke screen. It was Karaoke night at the local bar in the small Georgia town that he called home. He was born and raised here but always felt like an outcast. He loved music and most men after high school settled down, got jobs, or went into the army. Kane on the other hand did small odd jobs and fixed cars to keep his head above water. He could sing... that was what he had going for him. His grades hadn't been good enough to get into college.
When the song ended and the few people in the crowd clapped, he said thank you before going offstage and finding his best friend, hugging her, "I missed you, I'm glad you made time to come see me... I know your busy with school." he muttered taking a sip of his Bud Light lime.
