behind the madness

Charlotte couldn't be sure if she felt over or under dressed for the show. She had on jeans. Just old jeans and her PlayRadioPlay! T-shirt with a dinosaur on the front.

"I know him, you know," Derrick told her before he was to go on stage. As it was, she was backstage with him. She backed away a little, thinking his finger that was touching the dinosaur just might touch her boob instead. Charlotte gave him a stern look.

"Really?"

"Yeah, he's really talented, and he can really load his shit up quick after a show, too. You should listen to his accoustic stuff, some time, you'd love it, I bet." He was all confident, and she hated the idea of him deciding anything for her.

"You don't really know me, you know." She gave him a dead stare.

"Yeah, but I know you're pretty cute," Derrick smiled. Charlotte just hugged herself, thinking this was kind of freaky. A little scary and she was the biggest fool in the world.

Then the music started to play, and it was so loud the sound throbbed under her skin. She could hardly breathe. It was exciting and strange and honestly, she didn't know why she was here.
