Amaury frowned as he fully entered, a look of dissaproval on his face as he surveyed the crowd of sullen looking youths with swoopy hair and thick rimmed glasses. This really wasn't his type of place but he sighed and looked at his boyfriend beside him.

"How long do you think this will last?" he asked, flicking his hair out of his brown eyes. "I am not sure if I approve of the venue."

A scantily clad female, with a nose ring similar to what someone would see on a bull, sauntered by the two of them and gave them 'the nod' and a coy smile. He ignored her and sighed, looking into Jesse's big, blue eyes. For him, he'll endure such a place... besides, Amaury was proud of Jesse's musical talents and in his mind, his boyfriend looked his best on stage.

Jesse was beaming, any nerves he had completely hidden underneath the excitement. "Oh I dunno, a while," he said distractedly. "Did you see the marquee outside?" His eyes had lit up when he'd seen it. His band's name, There And Back, up in big block letters on the marquee of his favorite venue, the place he'd seen countless bands when he was younger.

"You comin' backstage?" he asked after a minute of looking around and being nostalgic. He nodded his head towards 'backstage,' which was really just the pit at the side of the stage, steel barricade blocking it off from the rest of the crowd, equipment everywhere and a few chairs and benches already occupied by other musicians. "Or do you just wanna wait here?"

Really, any real thought about running away completely melted when Amaury saw the excited, happy face on Jesse. The older man was practically bouncing with excitement and was completely endearing and adorable.

"I did see the marquee outside," Amaury said smiling as he took Jesse's hand in his. Briefly, he considered Jesse's offer of coming backstage and shook his head, "No, I think I will only get in the way. You go on ahead, I will go find a good seat and watch you play."

Lightly, he trailed a finger down Jesse's flushed cheek and gave him the soft, loving smile that he saved especially for him. "You will play well tonight," he whispered softly and gave Jesse's hand a final squeeze before turning and disappearing into the crowd to find a seat.

Jesse's blush certainly deepened as Amaury's finger grazed his cheek and his soft whisper fell on his ears. Oohhh how he loved that man, he thought, as he watched him disappear into the crowd.

Right, matter at hand, business and pleasure. Smirking he snuck up along the edge of the room past the crowd, and hopped over the barricade. All of the equipment was already set up on stage, soundchecked and ready to go. They were just the opening band, after all, but that was enough. Really it was. To be playing here...

He plopped down on a bench next to his drummer. "Cheers, Taylor. You ready?" Taylor nodded, clapping Jesse on the back with one hand while his other twirled a drumstick. "Just waiting on John and Nathan then," Jesse observed, stating the obvious. He had no idea where his guitarists were. They were always late back after soundcheck. But they were bloody brilliant so he lived with it. In the meantime... his eyes scanned the crowd to see if he could see any familiar faces.

It really was a good thing that Jesse was playing first, Amaury thought as he manuvered his way through the crowd. He wasn't sure how much of this he could actually take. There really wasn't any place to sit aside from a few scattered tables and the bar, most of this place was standing room only. Finally, he spied one table that wasn't too far from the stage and sat down, ignoring the fact that there were a few bags and jackets there, evidence of someone marking territory.

It was ridiculously hot and stuffy in there from all the people and the smoke, and Amaury didn't waste anytime taking off the black track jacket to reveal the outfit Jesse and chosen for him tonight. Dark wash jeans that were a bit tighter than he was accostumed to, a slim fitting red shirt with some band on it that he didn't recognize and a white belt that had to have an extra hole punched in for his narrow waist. Strange, but not uncomfortable although Amaury did miss his looser jeans and long-sleeved shirts that didn't emphasize how thin he was. Though thinness seemed to be 'trendy' in this group considering that many of the people here looked like sticks. Amaury didn't gain any weight by his constant exercise, but these kids simply looked like they starved themselves.

He frowned a bit at that thought, not noticing that the chair beside him slid back and a body soon inhabited the chair.

"Hey there, Pretty Man. Never seen you around here before."

Amaury ignored that comment, keeping his eyes on the stage. Perhaps if he kept pretending, that husky voice would get bored and eventually go away. Besides, Jesse would come on soon.

Jesse was getting impatient. He was on the verge of pulling out his cell phone and calling one of his truant musicans when John landed at his feet, shoved ungracefully over the barrier by a laughing Nathan. "Oi, Jesse's here! Hey, Nathen, Jess is here!"

"I can see that myself, John, thanks for the insight though." He hopped the barrier gracefully with a grin on his ridiculously handsome face. It was easy to see why Nathan was the one all the girls liked. He was charismatic and funny and without question one of the most attractive men the British Isles had to offer, all swooping blonde hair, honey colored eyes, a light dusting of freckles across his perfect cheekbones. "What're you lads waiting for then, chop chop, let's go, off your arses," Nathan continued jokingly, as if he had been waiting for hours.

"Oh Shove off, Nate," Jesse offered a hand to pull John up and then winked at Nathan. He loved these guys. Everyone was always joking and mucking about, but they were brilliant musicans, dedicated, passionate, and good friends.

They took the stage like experts, each of them in their places before the audience could even register that they were ready to start. With a grin that could light the room Jesse stepped up to his microphone and without so much as a "how do you do," they started playing.

The 'ignore' tactic hadn't worked. Whoever it was sitting behind him was persisting and was either too stupid to notice that Amaury hadn't even turned to look at him, or did and really didn't care.

"Did you know that you have 206 bones in your body?" the man behind him kept going. "I was wondering if you wanted one more."

Amaury felt like banging his head on the table and finally turned around. The other man was attractive enough with bleached hair, big eyes, and stubble. Some girls were milling about, eyeing him like Dango after he spied some bacon, but were keeping their distance and kept shooting the two of them eager glances. With a sigh, Amaury gave the man a stony glare to really put across the point of NOT BEING INTERESTED as Jesse came on stage.

His face lit up then and he turned his head around, admiring his boyfriend in the spotlights. Sure the band was full of attractive men, but no one seemed to shine more than Jesse did.

"You more interested in the opening act?! These blokes can't even play that well-"

The frosty glare that Amaury sent him quickly shut him up.

Jesse put everything he had into performing, he always had. The opening song was so important and he knew that and knew if he didn't bring energy from the first note he played, the first word he sang, no one would pay any interest. As the opening band, hardly anyone was ever really there to see you, you had to earn their respect. He planned to earn respect, adoration, and hopefully a few bucks on merchandise.

When he'd hopped on stage he was wearing a black hoodie over his t-shirt, and it was a tribute to how into this he was that after just one song he was already peeling it off. Usually it took two songs. "Thank yoouuuu," He drawled into the microphone as the amps were still ringing and his hoodie hit the floor. "We're There And Back, and this next song we're gonna play for you is called Captains and Curses." Taylor counted them in with his drumsticks, and then they were playing again.

A gentle, indulgent smile appeared on Amaury's features as he watched Jesse play his guitar, dance around, and sing his lungs out. He loved the sound of Jesse's voice, the way his lover moved under the spotlight... it was undeniably entrancing and all Amaury wanted to do was march up to the stage and steal him away.

Except Jesse would get mad if he did that so he ground himself deeper into his chair and went on watching... and saw the hoodie slip off of his arms and hit the floor. He grit his teeth a bit, forcing himself to remain in his seat instead of having his way with his curly haired boyfriend, then looked around the bar. Jesse would be happy, everyone's eyes were on him and his band. But this made Amaury scowl just a tiny bit, Jesse was HIS and no one else's.

Halfway through the song Nathan hopped up on top of one of the monitors for his first guitar solo of the night, He leaned forward over the crowd, grinning like a demon, his fingers moving perfectly without him having to watch them. Jesse slunk over to him, his own fingers moving gracefully over wound steel strings, a simple bassline underlying Nate's soaring notes. John moved over from the far side of the stage and they both flanked Nathan, backing him up, and Jesse leaned himself against Nathan's back, nudging him with his elbow and smiling at him. The moment was fleeting, and Jesse moved away, taking a pitstop to hop up on the drum level for a moment before returning to the microphone and finishing out the song.

Nathan stepped up to his microphone while Jesse retuned. "Is it hot in here, or is it just us?" Nathan asked, to which the crowd responded favorably. Jesse laughed as he flicked his hair back, his curls already damp with sweat. Nate's turn to hog the spotlight for a bit, singing a song that he'd written, only fair.

Amaury's eyes burned hotly as he stared longingly at Jesse on the stage. Jesse's body already had a light sheen of sweat, his face was flushed and there was a wide, wild smile on his face, it was positively arousing. He swallowed heavily, taking a deep breath to calm himself down as he watched his boyfriend lean against... Nathan. In truth, Amaury didn't mind Nathan, he was a perfectly pleasant fellow... but he was a bit protective of Jesse, especially when his boyfriend looked like that.

He dismissed his thoughts as unwelcome and focused on watching and enjoying the performance. And thus, he became so focused on watching Jesse that he didn't notice that the man behind him was very carefully tweaking the ends of Amaury's long black hair.

That had been a fun song. A very fun song. And when Jesse didnt have to sing he had a chance to move around the stage more, to do more... And Nathan was right, it was hot in here. When his last note finished ringing he handed his bass to John for a second and smoothly tugged his t-shirt, already damp with sweat, off his body. It ended up next to his hoodie. While he was sliding his bass strap back over his shoulders (the nylon would dig into his skin, but he didn't care) Nathan was making introductions.

"...and on bass and lead vocals is Jesse... who seems to think that this is a strip club." Ha ha, very funny, Jesse mouthed. "Jesse Martin, resident sex god, and I should know."

"Now Nathan, I thought we agreed not to talk about that," Jesse winked and didnt allow time for a response. "This next song's called Robotics and it's for someone very special to me." A slight head nod and they were playing in full swing again.

A gasp came out of the crowd as Jesse's damp and clinging t-shirt went up and off. There were a few cat-calls, a couple of appreciative whistles, and whatnot that caused Amaury to narrow his eyes. They narrowed even more at the flirtatious banter between Jesse and Nathan.

"Bet they're diddling each other," came the not-so-quiet whisper from the blond man sitting behind him.

Annoyed, Amaury snatched his hair out of his hands and turned back to watch the band. Immediately, his expression softened with the next song and Amaury had to admit that he was touched that Jesse would dedicate a song to him.

This song was one of Jesse's personal favorites, for a few reasons. He always just loved playing it, it was challenging, it was well written, the lyrics were sweet and slightly sexual... it was just a great song.

It was a song that let John take the lead guitar wise and left Nathan with not so much to do. During one of his breaks he snuck up behid Jesse and flung an arm around him, hugging his chest from behind. He rested his chin on Jesse's shoulder, screaming into the mic with him, and they were both grinning. And then he was... would one call that nuzzling? Yes, definitely nuzzling, Jesse's neck.

"Told ya he's diddling him," came the annoying, sing-song voice again.

Amaury wanted to turn around and punch the guy behind him in the face. He would never doubt Jesse's loyalty to him, he knew that Jess loved him... but the way Nathan was touching him, nuzzling him... it was getting his blood boiling. It was also making him angry that Jesse wasn't doing anything to stop Nathan. The curly haired man even looked liked he was enjoying it! His mind flew back to Zak's birthday party back in school and the heated kiss between Jesse and the birthday boy.

Jesse was not going to do anything. Jesse was loyal, kind, and good. Jesse loved him. Slowly, Amaury repeated the mantra in his head as he kept watching the performance with a very stony expression. He had stopped enjoying the music.

During a few measures of musical break Jesse turned his head towards Nathan, chuckling, and whispered "that tickles." Nathan didn't seem to care. Nathan didn't care about a lot of things, least of all being touchy with whoever he felt like being touchy with. Some nights it was John. Tonight it was Jesse. With a wolfishly handsome grin he nipper lightly at Jesse's neck, just once, and then backed away.

Jesse rolled his eyes. Nathan was back to playing, Jesse was back to singing. It was nothing new, it was business as usual. It was, to be quite honest, part of the reason people came to see them. Not really an aspect that Jess liked but hell, if it got people listening to his music? He'd take it.

"You're tasty," Nathan said mockingly to Jesse when the song was done.

"I'm marinating in my own sweat up here," Jesse answered back. He stopped the banter with a long look at Nathan, then swung into the next song.

Amaury's eyes flashed like red fire as he saw Nathan nip at Jesse's neck, feeling the hair rise on the back of his neck. Jesse had explained it to him, that one of the reasons why girls specifically came to watch the band was the way that they touched each other. It didn't mean anything, it was only a ploy, and in the end, the girls found that they liked the music. But Amaury hated it and when he felt the man behind him tangle his fingers in his hair again, he let him.

"I don't know how many of you have seen us before..." There was a small bout of applause from the crowd, which made Jesse grin, "but in this next song we mix things up a little. So give us just a second." Jese backed away from the microphone and lifted his bass, slipping out of the strap. Nathan had already stepped to the side of the stage, putting his guitar onto a stand. Jesse followed him, standing to face him. He flipped his bass around and rather than just handing it to Nate, he carefully slipped the strap onto his bandmates body, arms ending up almost all the way around him. In the half shaddows on the edge of the stage Nathan said, loud enough for the crowd to hear, "Oh Jess, I didn't know you cared!" And then he reached his hands out and grabbed Jesse's face and... well, it was easy to see from a mile off where that was going.

Jesse let the kiss last for a minute, long enough, but not a moment too long. He was slightly flushed when he got back under the bright lights. "I think I need to get hima a muzzle," He joked, taking te microphone from the stand and wrapping the cord around his wrist a few times before gripping the mic in his fist.

"Kinky, Jess," John was joining in the fun on this one. Jesse just glared at him, then grinned and launched into song, free to stomp around, hop up onto speakers, and have a generally good time.

That pretty much did it. That and the tug on his hair. Slowly turning away from the band, the other man grinned with pleasure to see that he had all of Amaury's attention now.

"Hey gorgeous, don't let their affections get you down," he purred, leaning in for a kiss.

Amaury let the other man kiss him, let his disgusting hand trail out of his hair, to his shoulder and then tangle with his, then calmly broke one of his fingers with his left hand as his right hand silently casted a silencing charm on him. The man howled noiselessly and reeled away, focusing all on his pain and didn't realize that no sound was coming out of his mouth. With that, Amaury grabbed his jacket and silently crept out of the venue.

Pretty much, this was the best concert Jesse had ever performed. They played a few more songs, there was a bit more flirting, no more kissing though. They ended on a high note, with a really upbeat song, and Jesse was ecstatic at the ovation they recieved. He never expected to be recieved so well in a venue this good. He was on top of the world.

The breakdown went fast, Jesse helped load all the equipment back into the band's van. He was approached once or twice by some girls, and he just politely thanked them for coming and shooed them away. One girl persisted in trying to give him her number and he said "Sorry, no, there's a devilishly beautiful japanese man around here somewhere waiting to take me home."

Problem was, there wasn't a devilishly beautiful japanese man around there anywhere. He searched high and.. well there was no high and low, he just searched the whole club. From the backstage area he heard someone proclaiming "I don't knw how he lsot his voice, he was fine before the other band played... what the hell are we going to do?" Jesse recognized the sullen gasping, and saw the guy clutching his hand. Oh god... he muttered the countercurse and hoped it would work... he wasn't focusing very well. But that gave him some asnwer as to where Amaury was. Amaury was not here.

Jesse made his excuses and practically ran out. He apparated home as soon as he found a dark alley to leave from.

Even though it was cold out, Amaury was standing on the balcony of their flat without a jacket, glaring stonily at the night sky. When he heard the pop of apparation, he didn't need to turn around to know who it was. There was a mixture of feelings spinning inside of him: pain, betrayal, sadness, anger... many things. But he didn't say anything, he couldn't... so instead he just kept quiet.

It took Jesse a moment to find Amaury, and when he did find him it took him a moment to aproach him. He has that "warning: do not come within 10 feet" vibe radiating from him.

Jesse stepped out onto the balcony, the cool breeze chilling him in his shirt that was still damp wth sweat. "Hey..." he said, his voice a bare whisper. " left."

Date: 2006-12-03 06:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Keeping his eyes on the city streets below, Amaury managed to say, "I am not going to your concerts anymore. Not if I have to see things like that. You go and perform. I will help with things away from band. But I refuse to sit and watch someone else touch you like that."

He turned angry, tortured brown eyes at Jesse, "I understand why it happens, it helps bring people in. But I do not want to see it."

Date: 2006-12-03 06:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"The way you say that you make it sound like it's some calculated and scripted ploy just to get attention. It's not like that." He wasn't sure if that made it better or worse.

"It just happens Amaury..." His argument was a weak one, if it was ven an argument. "Why did you break that guys hand?"

Date: 2006-12-03 06:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Then just play your music!" Amaury shot at him, "Do not do things like that at ALL! You are my boyfriend, we live together! No one else should be touching you like that!"

He turned and slouched over, resting his arms on the railing. Ahh, so Jesse had found out.

"He kept touching me and said things about you and your band," Amaury scowled. "He kept hitting on me, touching me... he would not stop. So I made him stop. Like I should have made Nathan stop."

Date: 2006-12-03 06:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Oh come on," he protested. "Nathan doesn't mean anything by it and you know that. He's just.. Nathan. It's what he does. He gets drunk before shows, he gets friendly at shows, he runs off and sleeps with women after shows."

He scowled and took a step towards Amaury. "You're really pissed at me about this?"

Jesse would have broken more than that guys hand, if he'd known he was hitting on his boyfriend.
