I sat on a stage waiting for my boss. Today was my first day at my new job. I was told to install the new sound systems of some band."
"Hey Lia!" I saw my boss entering the music hall.
"Hey!" I jumped down the stage.
"So are you ready?" He asked.
"Ok then let's go!" We walked into the backstage area, where some Roadies unloaded some trucks.
"Alright Lia! These are our Roadies of the band that is playing here tonight. That's Jeff, he's our first Sound
Engineer. He's going to help you to put the Sound Systems up." My boss introduced me to Jeff.
"Hey, so you're fit in high tech things?" Jeff asked me.
"Well yeah. I think so!" I answered shyly.
"Ok then let's start!" He lead me to the mixers. An hour later the systems were ready for the sound check, which should take place in about half an hour. The instruments of the band were already set up. So I decided to take a closer look at
I walked over to the turntables. I had some turntables myself because I used to DJ in some clubs some months ago. But I didn't have the time for my hobby anymore. The turntables here on stage were high quality stuff. I also noticed that the person who owned them, really understood what he was doing,
because they were in a really good condition.
Then I saw the records in a metal case. I looked around the music hall, everybody had left.
Should I give it a try?
I mean nobody is here, or I hope so.
No one would ever know that I played a bit with the turntables here. But at the other side, IF someone would see me, I could loose my new job again. I thought some minutes about what I should do.
"Ah c'mon. Who gives a fuck? I will only play a bit with them for like 1-2 minutes. I won't destroy 'em or something." I said to myself.
I turned the turntables on and pulled two records out of the case. I put the headphones on and some minutes later I was totally in the music and forgot everything around me. Wow.
Whoever this samples did was really talented. I don't know how long I was on the turntables 'coz I lost the feeling of time.
But suddenly I felt a tip on my shoulder. I startled to death, put the headphones down immediately .
"Shit!" I thought to myself and turned around quickly. When I turned around my arm hit something hard.
"Ahhhhh!" I heard a scream.
Then I saw a young man. About 5'7 tall, dark hair, dark eyes and a bit of an
Asian look. Then he touched his lips which bled a bit.
"Oh god I'm so sorry. I didn't want to hit you and I promise I didn't
brake anything here!" I pointed to the turntables. "Please don't fire me!" I begged.
"Get your ass outta here!!!!!" He said in an angry voice.
With my head down I took my bag and mumbled a last quiet "I'm sorry!" and walked towards the exit.
But before I could open the door and leave I heard laughter coming from behind me.
"Yeah right! Just laugh at me, you sucker!" I thought.
I heard him jumping down of the stage and some seconds later he grabbed my
"Hey I didn't mean it that way. It was just a joke. It sounded quite good what you did up there." He smiled at me.
I looked at him in disbelief.
"So I'm not fired?" I said in a shaking voice.
"God no!!!!! That was just a joke!"
"I didn't like that joke!" I said bitterly.
"Oh I'm sorry. I'm Joe, or, The One And Only Mr Hahn!" He shook my hand.
"Mr. Hahn?" I asked racing an eyebrow.
"Oh sorry my name is Lia. I got a job here in sound management."
"Sounds cool. So do you DJ? 'Coz what I have heard you sounded really good!" Joe wanted to know and looked at me
"I used to DJ a while back. But I don't have the time for it anymore."
"Oh that's kinda sad 'coz you really really did a good job..." He sounded cute when he repeated things like that
thousands of times.
He walked back on stage.
"Thanks!" I said in a whisper, he was really cute. I smiled to myself.
"C'mon, come up here. I would like to do some mixing with you."
"I don't know. Are you in this band that's playing here tonight?" I asked.
"Yeah, but don't worry they are coming later. So do you want to join me now?"
He smiled at me while putting on a new record.
"Ah I dunno!" I said.
"C'mon. I won't laugh at you."
I went up onstage. He let me stand in front of him.
I started to scratch the record and added a stronger beat.
"Ahhh I can't do this. It's sounds crap." I stopped because I fucked up
the scratching. Well, in my opinion I did.
"No no! It was ok... C'mon I'll help you!"
He put my right hand back on the record. His soft fingers were over mine.
"Just relax. I'll show you how to do it."
Then he put some pressure on my hand and let it slide around on the record.
"Got it?" Joe asked after some minutes. I could feel his breath at my neck.
"Yeah I think so!" I smiled and tried it alone.
"Very good! You learn fast." Now I felt his soft fingers wandering up my arms. Finally they rested on my shoulders and started to massage them.
"Umm Joe... Wha- what are you doing?" I blushed.
"Hmm... Nothing," he answered cheekily. "Should I stop it?"
"Umm... Well... I'm just starting to enjoy it," I giggled.
"Would you like to go to a bar with me after the concert?" He said after some minutes of silence.
"Hmm... Yeah why not? But I'll tell you straight ahead I'm not into these one-night-stand things!" I told him and looked into his eyes to see his reaction.
"Don't worry, me neither!" He smiled.
The band played now their last song called "one step closer". I really enjoyed this concert. The band really rocked the house. When the song ended all of the guys jumped into the crowd and gave autographs, what is not usual at concert.
I went over to Joe. "Could I have an autograph too?" I asked in a childish
"Hmmm... I don't think so!" He laughed. "But I've had a good day so, yes that would be ok."
"Thank you!" I was still in my childish voice.
I lifted my shirt a bit so that he could sign my stomach. Then Joe looked up at
"So are you still going out with me later or did we suck so badly that you changed your mind?"
"Not at all! I loved the concert and I would love to go out with you!" I gave him a warm smile.
"Ok I'm glad to hear that. Then I see you later!"
"Yep! See you!" With that I went backstage and talked a bit to the Roadies who were already setting off the equipment.
I was sitting with Joe at the bar now and we were talking, talking and talking.
"So you're from Asia?" I asked him.
"Well yeah, kinda. My parents are from Korea but I was born in Texas!"
"Hmm it's ok. So how old are you?" He asked after taking a sip of his beer.
"Well what do you think?" I grinned.
"Hmm... 22?" He guessed.
"Older!" I pointed out, amused.
"23?" He smiled.
"100 points go to Mr. Hahn!" I laughed. "Yeah I'm 23, and you?"
"24." He answered.
We talked about 2 hours more. He told me about the band, how everything started and so on. At about 1 o'clock I began to yawn.
"Oh sorry if I bore you!" He looked at me with his puppy dog eyes.
"No it's not that. I'm just tired that's all."
I smiled at him.
"Do you want to go home?" Joe asked.
"Hmm, yeah. Do you mind?" I smiled at him.
"No not at all!"
"Okies, then let's go."
When we walked out of the bar, the freezing night air hit me hard. Some minutes later I felt Joe's strong and warm arms around my waist, pushing me a bit closer to him.
When we arrived at a square, I stopped.
"Ok I have to go this way now!"
"Well would you mind if I walk you home? It's quite dangerous for a woman to walk alone here in the middle of the night!"
"Hmm if you say so. Then I wouldn't mind!" I said softly.
We arrived at my apartment a while later. Long silence.
"Alright, thank you for walking me home," I finally said to him.
There was a long silence again.
Then I put out my key and opened the door.
"Do you have a long walk home now?"
"Ah no! It's alright," he smiled.
"Maybe we can do something like that again someday?" I pointed out shyly.
"Yeah that would be great!"
"Ok bye," I said in a soft voice.
Then he came a step closer to me and I felt his arm around my waist again. That felt so good.
"God I think I'm dying in his arms," I said to myself.
I closed my eyes and then I felt his soft lip touching mine. His tongue was parting my lips and began to play with mine.
After some minutes we broke up the most passionate kiss I ever had. He looked into my
"That... that was amazing," he whispered.
"Yeah!" was all I could say in this magical moment. We both could still feel the erotic tension in the air.
"I see ya next time. Bye!" He gave me a last kiss on the cheek and left.
"Bye!" I said nearly in a whisper and smiled to myself.
I was lying in my bed, thinking of what just happened. Joe was so different than the other guys. Sure he seemed a bit like a fast worker, but hey, he was definitely a good kisser.
I closed my eyes and saw Joe in front of me.
I grinned to myself and then I fell asleep.
- the next morning -
I was just having my breakfast when my phone rang.
“Yeah? Good morning Mr or Mrs X!” I said happily, I was really in a good mood this morning, maybe because of my lustful dreams that I had
“Erm, hi it’s unfortunately not Mr X, but Mr Hahn.” The other voice replied.
“Ohhhh hiiiiii Joe! How did you get my number?”
“Well Jeff gave it to me. Is that a bad thing?”
“Erm, no!” I said simply. I sat down on the floor and pictured his face in front of me.
“How are you?” He asked after some minutes of silence.
“Well I’m fine thanks. And what about you?”
“Perfect, now that I’m talking to you!”
“Awwwww shut up. You’ll make me blush.” I laughed.
“Oh sorry! Haha. Well what are you doing today?"
“I wanted to go to the park and chill a bit.”
“Hmm sounds good.” Joe said.
“Do you wanna join me????” I asked hopefully.
“Hmm I would love to but I have to buy a new needle for the turntables first. But maybe I can come by a lill’ bit later?”
“Yeah sure no problem.”
“When are you going?”
“Aww maybe at 2pm or something.”
“Ok and well to which park are you going!” He wanted to know
“Lincoln Park!” I laughed.
“Ummm… yeah… why not? That’s a very nice name, isn’t it?” He joined in my laughter.
“Yeah it is. I really like that name.”
“Hm ok then, I'll see you later.”
“Bye!” I said and we hang up.
“Lincoln Park?? Lia?? You have never been to the Lincoln Park in L.A. before.” I grinned. “You’re a stupid bitch,
Lia!” I shoke my head and went into the
bathroom to have a shower.
When I stepped out of the shower warped up in a towel, and headed over to my closet.
“Bikini, or not?” I questioned myself. She looked at her red new bikini. “Hmm ok … Bikini!”
I grabbed it and put it on and then looked into the mirror.
“Hmm I think I look ok.” I grinned.
Then I packed a blanket, book, sunglasses, sun cream, discman and my
I put a t-shirt and some cargo pants over my bikini and walked into the kitchen. Now I took my mobile and keys
and went over to my car.
- In the park -
I was lying on my blanket, listening to Deftones and reading my book. I had only my Cargos and my bikini top on. Suddenly someone covered my eyes with his hands.
“Hey!!!!” I screamed. Then I touched the hands on my eyes with mine. The same strong hands like these which were resting on mine on the turntables.
“Joe!” I finally said and smiled. The person put his hands away and sat down on the blanket.
“You look great by the way.” He pointed at my bikini.
“Thanks.” I blushed.
“Awww you don’t have to blush, it’s a fact!” He laughed.
Then he lay down next to me, closed his eyes and listened to the music.
“You like Deftones?” Joe asked.
“Yep! They are great.”
“So do you have a day free, today? No interviews?” I asked him after some minutes of silence.
“Yeah! No interviews, no concert, no rehearsals.” He opened his eyes and smiled at me.
His eyes were so deep so magical. He wore glasses today, which made him even sexier.
“Are you going on tour with us?” He interrupted my thoughts.
“Huh? What? I’m sorry!”
“Are you going on tour with us?” He asked again.
“Oh, yeah I think so. I’m in the sound management so I have to set up the sound systems and so on.”
“I didn’t know you wore glasses.” I came back to his glasses. Hmm, I don’t know I had a thing for guys with glasses.
“Erm, yeah. I’m shortsighted. But sometimes I wear contacts.” He pointed out.
“I like glasses.” I said, biting on my lower lip.
“Well it gets on your nerves sometimes but you get used to it. Do you need some?”
“No! But they suit you.” I smiled at him. “I like ‘em!”
“Really?” Joe grinned.
“Uhm yeah!” I put my book away and then turned back to him.
Then I took his glasses off and laid them carefully beside me.
“But I also like you without ‘em.” I looked deep into his eyes.
“That’s a good thing.” He said nearly in a whisper.
I sat down on his stomach and leaned down to him till our lips toughed. I sucked softly on his lower lip while he did the same with my upper lip.
Then my tongue entered his mouth and began to wrestle against his. Meanwhile his hands where sliding my back up and down and he pressed my body close to his.
When we pulled apart gasping for breath, I looked into his eyes and asked:
“Where did you learn to kiss like that?”
“Well…” he grinned cheekily. “When I was a lill’ bit younger I always read the Karma Sutra of my oldest sister when she was away. And well there are also some really interesting kissing techniques in it.”
“Really?” I looked at him amused.
“Really!” He laughed.
I lay down next to him, with my head resting on his shoulder and enjoyed the sun, while he was playing a bit with my hair.
Silence fell between us for a while, but I didn't mind. It wasn't the
uncomfortable silence I was used to.
“Did you already have a lot of girlfriends Joe?” I asked.
“Hmm I wouldn’t call it "a lot". I had about 4 or 5 longer relationships. And what about you?”
“Umm… well, don’t laugh at me ok?”
“Why should I?” He looked at me.
“I have had only one really deep relationship.” I felt a bit uncomfortable now.
“Where’s the problem? I don’t have one with that.” He looked at me and kissed me on the forehead.
I gave him a smile, but he didn’t know that there was always something missing in my last relationship.
Joe and I were walking to the video store. We decided to rent some movies. Then about 30 mins later I sat on Joe’s leather sofa with some Chinese take-away food on my lap.
“Ok what’s our first movie?” Joe asked me. “We have Blair Witch Project, H 20, Gladiator and Fight Club!”
“Hmm Gladiator!” I grinned.
“Ok!” Joe took the movie, started it and grabbed his own Chinese food.
Joe had a great house. Really big and in the living room were many shelves full of CD’s and vinyl’s.
Later when we watched Blair Witch Project, my head felt so heavy and leaned against Joe’s shoulder. He looked at me and put his arm around me.
“Lia?” He asked softly.
“Well you know there’s this award show in 2 weeks, we are nominated for ‘Crawling’ as Best Rock Video and we all decided to take our girlfriends with us. So I wanted to ask you if you would like to go with me?” He looked at me hopefully.
“Hm yeah, I would love to.” I smiled at him.
He looked deep into my eyes and started to kiss me passionately while pushing me softly back onto the sofa. Then started to unbutton my shirt.
A feeling of panic rose up in me. My body wanted him, but my head had a completely different opinion.
“Joe!!” I said and put my hands over his fingers, to stop him opening my shirt.
“What?” He asked a bit shocked.
“I can’t do that. I’m not ready for this yet.” I said afraid of his reaction.
“No problem, I’m sorry.” He answered a bit sad.
“Don’t be. I-I just can’t do that now.” I told him while I buttoned up my shirt again. “I think I should go now.”
“Hm ok. I’ll take you home, ok?” He offered me a ride.
In the car we were both quite silent. Then he stopped.
“Alright, here we are.”
“Joe?” I said shyly.
“Hm?” He looked at me.
“Look, I like you a lot but just give me a bit time.”
“You’ll get as much time as you need.” He gave me a warm smile.
“Thankx! Good night then!” I kissed him softly on the lips and went.
1 week later
I was sitting on my balcony, thinking about that one night when Joe wanted to make out with me and I came more and more to the decision to tell Joe my lil’ secret. I had just the feeling that he needed to know it. In the last week we came a bit closer, but only step by step. A bit kissing, stroking and petting but that was all. I think Joe knew now how far he could go. I took my phone and searched for Joe’s number:
“Joe can we meet for dinner or something, I need to talk to you?”
“Is everything ok, Lia?” He sounded worried.
“I’ll tell you later, so can we meet?” I asked again
We made a time and a restaurant clear where we were going t meet. After I hung up the phone rang again.
“Yeah hello?” I answered it.
“Hi it’s Steff. I’m Mike’s girlfriend.”
“I wanted to ask you if you would like to go shopping with us. For the award show, you know?”
“Hmm ok. When?”
“Tomorrow at about 2 pm in front of Hannah’s! Do you know that shop?”
“Ok than see you tomorrow!”
“Bye!” We hang up and I started to get ready. I met Joe at 8 and it was already 7, so I had to hurry up with shower, make-up and clothes.
At 8 in front of the restaurant
“Hi.” Joe said when he walked over to me. “You look great.” He pointed out when he looked at my outfit.
I wore some black, tight pants and a green shirt in chinese style.
“Thx!” I smiled.
“Ok, let’s eat.” Joe said and we walked inside.
After we finished our dinner he finally or should I say unfortunately asked:
“Well you needed to talk. What’s the matter?”
“Oh Joseph. It’s not that easy!” I whispered insecure.
“You want to leave?” He looked at me.
“Uhu!” I nodded slowly.
Joe paid, took my hand and we headed outside. We w alked into the park and sat down on a bench.
“So c’mon tell me now.” He put his arms around my shoulders to comfort me.
“I’m afraid!” I whispered and leaned my head against his shoulder.
“You’re afraid? Of ME?” He asked shocked.
“No, of your reaction.” I added.
“Oh don’t be, just tell me now!” He looked deep into my eyes.
I took a deep breath:
“Joe, I like you a lot you know, but every time we get closer my body says ‘yes go for it’ but my brain screams ‘no, you can’t do it! You’re not allowed to do it!’ ”
“You’re not allowed to do what?” Joe seemed confused.
“T-to …… sleep with you!” I said nearly in a whisper.
He put his arms away from my shoulders and looked at me concerned.
‘There’s another guy, right? God, why didn’t you tell me? If you told me at the very beginning of this relationship, my feelings maybe hadn’t become that strong for you. It hadn’t come that far.” Joe told me with anger in his voice.
“Joe, no, no, don’t get it wrong!” I begged.
“What???? That you cheated on me? Lia, I like you so much and I thought you needed the time to get to know me better and now, now you tell me there’s another guy!” Joe’s eyes became darker and darker with each word.
“You know what Lia? Just leave it, ok? You go your way and I go mine.”
He stood up and walked out of the park.
“JOE!!!!” I screamed with tears in my eyes.
“You got it totally wrong!” But he couldn’t hear me anymore, then he disappeared behind a corner.
“Oh god, oh god. He got it totally wrong, so wrong!” The tears were streaming down my face when my legs became weak and I colappesed down on the cold grass.
