Madi and Ash have been Best friends since Year 2. Madi Moved from Sydney all the way to Darwin for 2 years. When she moved back to Sydney she was held back a year and placed in year 4. Ash and Madi were still attached at the hip and spent all the time they could together. When Madi was in year 6 she became friends with Calum and Michael, who were best friends, Luke, Rhiannon and Kelsey. There were known as ‘The Gang’ and would always hang out. Now in year 9 (Ashton year 10) they were all good friends and the 4 boys created a band named ‘5 Seconds of Summer’
“I wish that I could wake up with Amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories that never can escape”
The music keeps playing on the loud speakers while Michael and the filming crew gets ready to film his scene. Rhiannon runs off to say good luck to Michael while Kelsey, Ash and I walk to the dressing room to get me ready.
“I still cannot believe that you got us into this video Ash! Why?”
Ashton talked management into letting Rhiannon, Kelsey and I into the video, as they needed some girls to have fun with the boys (Not it that way!!!)…
“Well we would have had to get in some model or actor or someone us boys really wanted you girls to be in it with us and it is about braking up so it would make sense if our girlfriends were in it. Not that we are going to break up or anything. The 5sos Fam already knows you and loves you, Madi! No need to be all uptight about it!”
Ash was right I was uptight about this whole situation! I know most of the 5sos Fam know me and like me but I still get a lot of hate from, from who I call ‘Fake Fans’. If they were real fans they would know it was the right thing and it makes Ash happy.
Mikey is next up to sing Amnesia to the camera. Madi and Kelsey are behind the main camera that’s filming Ash, making faces and rude gestures in an attempt to make him laugh. It works every few minutes or so and whenever the director the cameraman looks remotely in their direction they stop dicking around and are suddenly in a very serious conversation.
‘Cat?’ Mikey asks.
‘Mhm?’ I respond absentminded still paying attention to Madi flipping off her boyfriend.
‘I swear to God if you do what Madi and Kelsey are doing, I wont buy you Macca’s afterwards.’
Now my attention is on him. ‘Fine then, I’ll go ask Calum or something.’
‘I’ll eat your order.’ He tosses back.
‘I’ll…’ I falter, scrambling to find something to top that ‘Go with him.’ I finish. It’s lame but its better than nothing. Mikey’s triumph smirk drops.
‘MICHAEL GET YOUR ARSE HERE!’ Never have I been more grateful for Calum to interrupt my conversation. Mikey rushes off, stopping once to grab the acoustic guitar one of the crew members was holding for him.
I jog up to Kelsey and join her in making gagging noises as Madi and Ash are doing this weird little dance-hug thing.
