Soundtrack: "Absolute" by The Fray.
New Year's party at The Royal Oak pub!
“DUFF!” I yelled, knocking the bathroom’s door with all my strenght. “ARE WANKING OFF IN THERE?! I NEED TO PEE, DAMN IT!” I could hear him laugh from inside, he had been inside for a good ten minutes and he sure as hell wasn’t taking a shower. “UGH!” I complained, kicking the bathroom door.
“Dude, what the hell is going?!” Slash enters the room, worried due to the screaming.
“THIS TOSSER WON’T LET ME PEE!” I complain, crossing my arms over my chest and pouting. Slash laughs.
“It’s New Years Eve, guys! Try to get along!”
“Right, because you so didn’t punch Axl last night, right?” Duff says, walking out of the bathroom. My eyes widden.
“Uh,” Slash shrugs, “Yeah, he was being an as*hole and bringing ladies into the room while I was sleeping” he explains as I start laughing.
“That would have been quite a sight, huh?” I joke, as my blokes laugh.
“Well, we have already seen Axl in action at the studio, y’know? I DON’T EVER WANT TO SEE THAT AGAIN!” Duff cries and cringes at the memory.
For some reason lately, I had been isolating myself from everyone, disappearing the entire day and just walking around England. I miss it, sometimes. And so I took a long walk to the Royal Oak Pub by myself again, only 10 minutes before New Years.
“Where have you been?!” Slash asks as I step into the pub, dragging me across the room to where the crew was.
“I paid a short visit to a friend, that’s all” I lied, giving him a little smile, he shook his head.
“You are lying, but I’m not going to fight. Not now. We have 1986 for that!!” he exclaimed, excited. He had always loved New Years Eve, I laughed.
“But I don’t want to fight!”
“But I do! Because, with no fight, there is no make up”
“Was that supposed to sound cute and romantic?” I ask, giggling.
“Yeah, didn’t come out well, did it?” he laughed, shaking his head at his own stupidity.
The entire pub started yelling in excitement, cheering and laughing. Judas and Johnny were together and Olivia was standing right next to Will. Lola was off somewhere else and I was just here.
“THREE!” I yelled with all the air in my lungs, trying to hop into the excitement train, but failing miserably.
“Pho,” Slash whispered into my ear, it was a shocker I could hear him with all the people screaming.
“What?” I whisper back, as the crowd starting going crazier everytime.
And as the crowd screamed and the couples kissed, Slash let both his hand rest on my cheeks and kissed me gently, as everyone was clapping and hugging.
“HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!” he jumped in excitement as a two year old kid. I was not expecting that.
“Expect a fight real soon, Saul!” I exclaimed while hitting his arm playfully.
