SCARLET

I stared back at myself in the mirror before I go out to the stage. I never experienced standing in front of the crowd. I didn't know exactly understand why I wanted to sing live in an acoustic bar. I also had no experience. All I knew was I had to move on. I had to divert my attention and do something new.

"Hey newbie, we're about to start." An Asian man in a baseball cap appeared behind me.

"Yes, of course. Thank you." I smiled at him.

"I'm Scott, I play the percussion. You are Scarlet, right?" he asked.

"Oh, yes. Hi Scott." I reached out my hand to him.

"Pleasure." He shook my hand.

Scott smiled. He's pretty charming and he looked younger than me. He had black hair under his cap, covering his full forehead.

"Your English is pretty good for a Japanese, " I said, trying to be friendly.

"I'm actually Korean, " he corrected, but then he grinned.

"Oh, I'm sorry." I covered my mouth. That explains his skinny figure, tall physique, and a skin like a young boy.

He chuckled. "You ready? I heard you have a good voice."

"I'm not a professional, though."

"Just follow the beat. So, shall we?"

I nodded, biting my lower lip hard. My heart began pounding really fast. Scott swung the black curtain that leads to the stage. I blew out a sharp breath, squeezed my palms before I stepped my foot on the stage.

Sean was already on the stage. He's preparing the cables and the amplifier for the sound test. I was their power vocalist tonight for two hours. The other singer who sang last night would be singing after our session. She'll be performing with another band.

We waited for the first acoustic band to finish before our gig. Since it was already nine in the evening, a lot of customers had arrived. Sean told me that it would be great for me to perform at this hour for my exposure. People would definitely come again after hearing my voice. I was so flattered by what he said.

Our current band consists of four members. The guitarist, the violinist, the percussionist, or the one who played the beatbox, which was Scott and me, the singer. This was the first time I met the violinist. She was absolutely stunning in her ripped jeans, black leather jacket, and sneakers. Our eyes met as I entered the stage.

She smiled at me. I smiled back.

I swallowed hard as I see the crowd. The stage was too bright, so I couldn't see the people clearly. My nervousness was lessened a bit. But I know, right there in the audience, my best friends were watching me.

Sean gave me a reassuring squeeze on my shoulder, "Are you okay? You look pale."

"I'm nervous, " I told him.

"You'll be fine. Just enjoy the moment. You'll get used to it. You ready?"

I nodded, "Yeah."

"Good, give them a brief greeting. Say something about our first song, " Sean said, and then he stepped back. He left me in the middle of the stage, in front of the microphone.

I took a deep breath, "H-Hello, good evening, " I said to crowd. I glanced at Sean and the g

crowd.

"Where's Nate?" I frowned.

"He's over there. Hey, isn't he a good catch? Not a Scottish I promised, but he's pretty talented, isn't he? You can't deny he's attracted to you, too. What do you think about him?"

"He's…he's…" I sighed. "He's fine. A professional musician. I should not think about any other things further than that."

"Boo! It's time for you to move on, you know." She raised an eyebrow, crossing her arms over her breasts.

"That's why I am here. Hey, I need to go to the restroom. I've been holding this for an hour." I told her.

"Sure over there. We'll wait for you here." She pointed out the doors by the stairs.

"Thanks!" I shouted back at her as I ran to the restroom.

"Oh, God! I need to pee really bad!" I ran to the female's restroom and entered into one of the cubicles. I put down my pants, sat, and let it all out. I sighed a long breath of relief.

I came outside the restroom. The heavy feeling on my belly was gone. I feel refreshed. But just right after I stepped my second foot outside, I found something I wouldn't want to see. I don't know if I was only mistaken, but I knew that sharp features too well. Broad shoulders, defined jawline, wide back, three-piece business suit.

It's Luke, with a blonde Barbie doll in a purple haltered dress.

What the hell was he doing here? This wasn't his regular bar. My heart literally jumped out of my chest in nervousness. Damn it, why here?

But it not what caught my attention. He's with another woman again. A woman of his type. It's not even long he already found someone else? My blood began to boil in anger, in disgust.

I put out my phone and typed a message for him. My hands were shaking.

Going out again as Jax, aren't we? Just like the old times. I hit send. She's probably someone he met on the app to fuck tonight. I wiped my tears with my fingers right away. I hid in the back of the restroom door.

I didn't expect that he would reply right away.

Where are you? - Luke
