Wherever My Heart May Lead
"It was cool for a Wednesday night. Normally, April wasn't that cool, but tonight something was different. Words can't describe the way I felt when I saw her. We were in the middle of playing "You Can Never Go Back to Virginia" and the crowd was loving it. The lights, the sounds, they were all in sync as we played. And she was just standing there. She was looking at me, in a way I had never noticed before. Her body was moving but her eyes were dead set on mine. They were on me. Not Aaron, or Jake, or Tom. She was interested in my every move, and I studied her back. I could tell she felt the rhythm of the song the way that I had written it. I moved my eyes and saw the brownest eyes ever. I became lost within them and I felt nothing for nearly an eternity. I snapped back to reality when I realized that I had stopped strumming my bass. I quickly picked my notes back up and continued playing. The show ended and I could never find the girl again within the crowd. She was gone. The greatest girl in my whole life stole my heart in only twelve seconds. But thats when time stood still."
Levi put down his pen and reclined in his chair. He scanned his notebook again and sighed. He began flipping through the book when a picture fell out. The small photo spun in the air for a moment and then fell to the ground. Levi slowly reached to the ground to grab the picture. His fingers were shaking as he flipped the picture around and brought it to his face. A small note was scribbled on the back. "Levi- I will always love you. Your heart has a place forever next to mine. Yours Truly, Valdosta". The photograph was of the girl with her arms around Levi. She was smiling brightly as he kissed her cheek. Levi felt his chest swell as his heart melted. He could no longer look at the picture and he shoved it back into the notebook. He read the date at the top of the page. Nearly a year had passed and with every day came the thought of her. Levi wiped the tears falling from his cheek and closed his notebook. The sound of the bus engine revved as it traveled down the freeway. This was the life Levi had always dreamed about, touring with a band and playing for millions of fans that adored his voice and the works of art he created. On the nights the band would play sold out shows for thousands of kids, Levi couldn't help but think back to that cool April night. It was those nights that Levi never felt more alone.
