Nice to meet you. Taken.

It’s already my third week away from home, away from Italy. I’ve moved out as I got accepted at a University in the U.K., University of Essex to be more specific. As I wanted to get used to the place and get a job before my studies start, I moved two months earlier. Gladly my parents have an old friend who owns a couple of hotels in London and he let me a room to stay until the university accommodation halls were open to move in.

To be fair, I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my friend Savvas. Savvas is one of those friends you make during summer holidays as a kid that you lose contact when you are back home but then when social media happen you search their name and there they are? My dad is half Greek so we have been to Greece a lot of times for holidays. When I was eleven years old I met Savvas at the beach one day when my eighteen year old cousin completely ignored me while flirting with some guy. For the whole month I was there, all he was doing was bullying me about how horrible my greek sounded. Well okay to be fair that was not the only thing that he did. We always set a time to meet the next day at the beach, we would stay there until the sun was down or until our mums would come and kick our asses for sitting under the bright burning sun without any protection. Then I had to go back to Italy again. Three years ago I decided to look his name up on facebook and thats how it all started again. Endless conversations. He was the one who made me come to the UK. After he signed a contract with Arsenal he was forcing me to make applications for the universities there.

And here I am now. Having a part-time job, a small hotel room in north London and a great childhood friend by my side.

“I’m going to get the drinks, when you are done if I’m not here waiting for you then come and find me at the bar.” I nodded and made my way into a toilet. Today was the day we’ve been waiting for two years now. Drake’s concert.

“Yeah mum.. no mum.. yes mum.. okay mum.. I said I’m not drinking that much mum relax.. yes mum.. MUM GOODNIGHT!” I ended the call and walked closer to Savvas who was already there waiting for me with two cocktails and two guys that I’ve never seen before.

“Be more polite to your mum!”

“If you want to know she basically called you a rapist because she gave me the lecture of ‘don’t drink way to much tonight and don’t sleep at Savvas place’ so not only I defended you but you also lecture me too.” I said sarcastically as I gave him the most ironic smile ever.

“Yeah even if I was a rapist I wouldn’t have gone for you because if you will be taking as much time as you are taking in the toilet then no! I have been waiting here for like twenty minutes!” now his friends who he wasn’t polite enough to introduce me to, were barely holding their laughter.

“Sorry! My fault that there is queue in there longer that the queue to drake’s bed!”

“Whatever! Anyway. This are my friends Alex and Hector in case you don’t already know them and they invited us to their VIP box because they are all there.” I’m not sure what he meant by all but I turned around to face the two guys and gave them my hand to introduce myself.

“Elizabella.” I said and gave them a smile looking at them for the first time.

“Nice to meet you, we’ve heard a lot about you.” They both said smiled back at me.

“Well I’m not sure if it’s nice for me to meet you as if you are friends with Sav, you are just like him and that is not so nice. And please whatever he said about me, ignore it. It’s probably lies.”

“See! See! And then you ask me why I hate her!”

It has been one of the most beautiful nights I’ve had by far since I moved here. I don’t know if I’ve stopped dancing and singing with Alex at all. Basically, everyone in that VIP box was so cool and they were all party animals. They were almost all of them footballers of Arsenal but from the first team. Savvas is sometimes training with the first team so I guess that’s why he became friends with them. Sadly, the night had to come to an end there I was again in my lonely hotel room. I haven’t actually seen them again at all except from Alex and Rob who came out with Sav and me two more times.

A month passed and here we are to October where I am officially at my new room at the university halls. This weekend I’m staying over at that hotel room in London again as it’s Sav’s birthday and we are going to a greek club. I don’t really know why I agreed on that because I’m not really into greek music but yeah sometimes it’s cool. What confuses me more tho is that Alex, Hector, Rob and Carl have agreed to go to and they don’t even speak greek.

“The guys are coming, I’m going out to let them in.” Savvas shouted into my ear as he wore his jacket.

“Coming with you.” I just didn’t want to be left alone with any of his greek friends. I don’t even remember their names and most of them don’t seem to like me so staying there alone would have been more like hell to me. I grabbed his arm gently and followed him as he pushed through dancing bodies to get out of the club.

“It’s freezing how can you make it be out here with only a bra?”

“For the hundredth time, it’s not a bra! It is a bralette top !”

“Whatever! Still!”

“I would have been surprised if you weren’t fighting!” We both turned our heads and faced the guys laughing at our argument.

We had to wait again in a queue as Savvas obviously couldn’t let us in again without waiting. Hector was kind enough to pass me his jacket even if I rejected it at first. I have to admit he looks a little bit mysterious but in beautiful way. The way he looked into my eyes while placing it over my shoulders made the blood in my veins burn enough to make me warm but I didnt want to give back his jacket. The idea that it was previously touching his body and now it was covering me made me go crazy.

The whole night I’ve been dancing and drinking and dancing and drinking all over again. If I remember correctly I even got on stage when a band came on and danced along to one of my favorite greek songs. I remember savvas saying something something like “What’s left now? You are getting up there again to sing?” and that’s all I needed. I went closer to one of the securities and in a few moments, I was on stage again with a mic in my hands this time singing and not caring how many people were in there. I could spot hector in the crowd staring at me and I couldn’t break the eye contact. I loved the idea that he was all focused on me and I know he realized I stayed on stage just to give him more of me dancing and singing.

It was almost 5 am when we left the club and Alex was driving me, Savvas and hector back home as we were the last ones from the group that actually stayed until that late.

“I’m feeling like I am going to be sick.” I said and opened the car window to get some air.

“Well you should have drank less! How many drinks did you have actually? 15? 20?”

“Sav shut up seriously or I’m going to vomit on your ugly head.” Well this made this even worse. “Actually Alex please stop the car.” And with that I was out of the car nearly on my knees with hector behind me holdin my hair and rubbing my back.

“Are you okay?”

“Yeah I am good thanks, should have listened to my mum’s non drinking advices though.”

“You should.”

“Are you done?” Alex shouted from his seat and made us both get into the car. “You are all staying at my place, I’m too tired to drive you all at you places and for sure I am not letting this young lady over there all alone drunk in a hotel room.”

“I guess there is no space for a no as an answer here, is it?” he didn’t even bother to give me an answer so I just shut my mouth and closed my eyes.

I must have fallen asleep because when I re-opened my eyes I was in a bed with an oversized shirt on me and Alex leaving the room.

“Alex?” he turned around and looked at me. “I think I’m going to be sick again.” And with that he walked me to his bathroom and waited until I felt better. “I really don’t think it’s safe to go back to sleep in this condition.”

“I guess. I’ll stay up with you.”

We’ve spend the rest of the night/ early morning having deep talks about anything and everything. It was around 11 when we decided to go to the kitchen and make some breakfast for everyone. Basically Alex was the one making the breakfast while I was sitting on a chair leaning my head on the kitchen counter in just the oversized shirt and hector’s jacket. I looked like a mess. My hair was a mess. My face was a mess. Everything was a mess about me.

“Morning” A really sexy male morning voice made me pick my head up from the counter and look at another mess, Hector, who was just in his boxers and his shirt from last night.

“Good morning. Um.. Im sorry for wearing you jacket again but it’s cold in here and alex wouldnt turn on the heating as he claims its not cold.”

“It’s fine don’t apologize.”

“Thanks.” I smiled and placed my head on the counter again and looked at Alex while he was fighting to cook whatever it looked like pancakes.

I’ve spend the following hour just watching alex and hector fighting about their cooking skills and actually hector lecturing alex on how he should have been cooking and correcting him on whatever move he was trying to make. I couldn’t stop laughing the whole time.

“Ain’t no way I am eating that!” Hector said as he picked a pancake from the plate and threw it again back in. That was it. Alex picked the same pancake and shoved it into Hector’s mouth. I swear he was choking for at least ten minutes and I just couldn’t stop laughing.

“Then you complain about me and Sav fighting! You are worse than us!” I said between my laughers.

The rest of the day went like that. The four of us bullying each other, laughing all the time. The first one to leave was savvas as he had to meet some other friends and then there was hector.

“Wait, Hector!” I said and made a move to remove his jacket off of me but his response made me stop right there.

“Keep it, until the next time.” And before I could even reply he was already gone.

“Hey, Alex, can i ask you something?”

“Mhm.” 

“Is Hector single?”

“No, he is in a relationship i think for a year now? Why?”

“N-Nothing just a-asking.”




GUESS WHO IS BACK AGAIN ! YEAH ME.

Hope you liked it! Let me know if you want a second part and if you want let me know what you think will happen next!

Let me know as well if you liked it.


Also if you are wondering who Savvas is, his name is Savvas Mourgos and he’s playing for Arsenal. (check him out)

WATCHING PRINCE LIVE IS LIKE HAVING SEX.

It really is, before you go all crazy on me and complain that im talking out of one of the many holes on my body, Just let me explain to you why.

FIRST THE ANTICIPATION AND KNOWING THAT SOMETHING EXCITING IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
I waited all day yesterday for something to happen, a hint or a clue about a possible venue or performance. I had my sources say that a rehearsal had taken place at the Hippodrome Casino during the afternoon in preparation for the evening coming. My purple alarm bells were ringing like crazy. PRINCE is going to perform tonight!! My hands began to sweat, my blood started to flow to places were chemicals hardly reach. I had to make sure i was ready, petrol in car, cash in hand, clothes ironed and ready to wear, just needed the location. Then exactly at 19:15 it hit, “KINGS PLACE MUSIC FOUNDATION 90 YORK WAY, LONDON N1 9AG” GO GET OUT OF THE WAY!! I grabbed my car keys, coat and the wife and just ran, left TV running, lights around the house on and im sure i forgot to flush the toilet too (i was zipping my jeans up as i was running to my car). I must have driven through 3 red lights through London city centre (i expect the fucking fine tickets on monday - oh shit!) i dropped my wife outside the venue so she could queue up and began franticly trying to find somewhere i could park. I did, but i think whilst i was reversing i must have hit someone cuz i heard a loud scream and thud, got out the car and saw 2 legs sticking out from under the wheels ( note to myself - get em fucking washed!) i thought cuz we were in Islington they could have some mannequins that someone had left out from one there ‘fashionable’ clothe stores. Quickly ran like i was Usain Bolt (only much bigger, slower and less Jamaican), i just wanted to get into the queue. Nothing was going to stop me. Finally got into the queue and began to wait. And waiting is what we did for the next 3 hours. Rumours were flying everywhere, fans talking about PRINCE, what songs he is going to sing, how long for and how much tickets were going to cost? I had a smile underneath my beautiful face (thats what my mum says dont judge me) because i knew the answers. If you been follow PRINCE in the last few you kind of get an idea of what he’s going to do. It wont be definite but it will be close. It was very windy, very cold and very very wet but the spirit of the fans and the guy behind me’s umbrella i got throught it. There was a second show as planned and i knew we were going to make it through. Finally we did, at exactly 10:45pm we got in, paid £140 for me and the Mrs and joined the fans inside. I couldnt wait, i was on such a high, my adrenaline was pumping though my body, i knew the time was close, PRINCE WAS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. other fans had alcohol to keep em calm and relaxed, some had weed, cuz i was a man of religeon i had to keep my body clean! (thank u Islam). Managed to get in the hall, got to our seats and the time was now. PRINCE WAS HERE.

SECOND THE PENETRATION, THE FEELING OF BEING CONNECTED, TWO SOULS IN UNISON SHARING AN EXPERIENCE THAT YOU WILL BOTH REMEBER.
3rdeyegirl came out and explained to the fans about no cameras and forthcoming shows (where the fuck is PRINCE!!) i know you guys are extremely beautiful and talented but i will bend over, lube myself and get carpet burns for PRINCE anyday.
Then is started, its hard to explain but i will try me best. PRINCE walked out without a care in the world, picked up an accoustic guitar and started playing RASPBERRY BERET, the whole fuckin hall exploded, did i cum too quick? No i didnt, i just got penetrated. The music went right through me and touched my soul. The crowd went wild, what a way to start the show, just PRINCE sat on stool, guitar in hand and talking about a girl who 'knew how to give a kiss’. He finished, put the guitar down and picked up his Electric one. Seeing PRINCE with a guitar is like kissing your girl and her biting your bottom lip as she pulls away from you. Instant Orgasm!!!. The crowd knew what was coming. He started to play his new and unreleased track FUNKROLL from the forthcoming album Plectrum Electrum. All i can say about this track is that you know first moment you experience oral sex? Well times that a million and your probably close as to what we experienced with this track. It was the bomb!!, the whole crowd were singing along to the chorus as if it was one of PRINCE’s masterpieces from the 80’s! Amazing my friends, the band then began to groove to the instrumental track 'Plectrum Electrum’ with PRINCE and guitarist Donna sharing licks, and at one point PRINCE strapped on Ida’s Bass Guitar and gave us an ass whooping like you wouldnt believed. in the first 10 min he’s already played an acoustic guitar, electric one and Ida’s Bass guitar, oh yeah he played a few solo’s on one of the keyboards as well (YO REST OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? WHAT THE FUCK CAN U PLAY?) stroke after stroke (like the metaphors?) PRINCE AND THE BAND were on fire!! Next came the new track PRETZELBODYLOGIC and then he really got the over50’s excited when he started Jamming to Wild Cherry’s 'PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC’ the whole hall erupted, it was amazing to experience. The whole crowd jumping and following PRINCE’s every move on stage. The instrumental track STRATUS was next which again showed the band at their finest. This band is probably his best band since the NPG of 93-96 oh and also prettier (i loved Donna’s hand grip on her guitar, she definitley knows how to handle large pieces of equipment in her hands) then the classics began, LETS GO CRAZY, SHES ALWAYS IN MY HAIR and the lost but not forgotten ENDORPHINMACHINE crom his greatest album of the 90’s THE GOLD EXPEREINCE, yeah i said it!
The slowed down bersion of LETS GO CRAZY and SHES ALWAYS IN MY HAIR proves that PRINCE is the ummm… Well PRINCE on reinvention. The guy mould his tracks into something new and different each time, never getting bored of one sound or arrangement. LETS GO CRAZY has really become some sore of anthem for him right now and its great to see his B side tracks getting some love too. Then came SCREWDRIVER, another rocknroll future classic, im sorry but all you so called rock gods just put your guitars away cuz if you cant play like PRINCE can then you need to retire. This song just showcases how PRINCE can rock with anyone, young, old, black, browm, white whoever. PRINCE and the band left the stage and after some begging from the crowd he finally came back and sat himself down at the keyboards. He began to play a few notes from PURPLE RAIN, now being a man and seeing how women react to PRINCE can be a strange feeling. I mean some of the women were changing knickers after every song cuz thats how often he was getting them wet! (Note to self - buy more knickers for the Mrs). He started singing and the whole room joined in. The experience will not be forgotten, EVERY single person in the room was singing along to the song and many were also in tears (including some dodgy looking security guards). We knew were coming to the end and PRINCE made sure that this was a worthy climax. He had been teasing us all evening with his penetrating songs, guitar licks, thumping beats. As the song faded down, the band members one by one waved to the crowd and blew kisses to the crowd. We just came, all of us at the exact same time. This is what we waited for 4 hours, in the rain, cold and windy weather and you know what? It was worth every penny of the £70 we paid. We were all breathless, we just witnessed greatness and had an experience we will probably only have once in our lifetime. PRINCE performing an acoustic set like if it was in our own bedroom we just him and a few ladies. PRINCE and the band came out for one last applause, they all were bowled over by the love we shared there tonight, PRINCE looked some horny teenager who got caught fucking his biology teacher with that side smile he has now going on (see that New Girl episode to see what i mean). They all left the Hall and the crowd picked up our clothes and shoes off the floor, we straightened our hair, grabbed our items and left the venue like we were trying to escape a secret lover who we just had sex with.

THIRDLY THE COME DOWN, THE HOT AND SWEATY RELAXATION THAT WE EXPERIENCE AFTER EXCHANGING FLUIDS I MEAN KISSES, YEAH KISSES :)
We walked out the venue with people breathless and not knowing what they had just seen and experienced. We felt loved, we felt like we had been in the arms of a lover who made sure we were safe, taken care off and given a good time. Did it feel dirty or cheap? Hell no! it felt like a lost love that you had been dying to see finally be in your arms. We were happy, satisfied that we took part in something special, we did our part, did as we were told, reacted to all the different emotions that PRINCE sent our way and like a lover, a partner a fuck buddy? We did what we wanted to do. which was to have a great FUCKING time!
PRINCE? Should i call you or do you want to call me?

12/11/2015 Brandon in Moscow

We were pretty nervous and very excited! Everything was so crazy and great! When we just found out about the gig, the information was that the only way to get there was by buying HP laptop, and at first, my friends and I were so desperate we actually decided to buy the cheapest laptops (and sell them afterwads of course). Thankfully we didn’t do that, because pretty soon there were a lot of people who got tickets either with laptop or from some other sources, and they didn’t need them because they didn’t know/like Brandon so they were happy to sell them! And so I bought my ticket on russian version of craiglist(lol) for real cheap, about 22 dollars. I was so so happy when I got it! It was like 3 weeks before the show. The funny thing is that like a week after we got tickets people from HP contacted me bcos i am  an admin in russian Brandon Flowers fan-community and offered couple of free tickets and asked me to do a couple of contests to let fans win those tickets. And apparently idea with selling laptops to get a ticket didn’t go very well, because couple of days before the show they contacted me again and offered me 100 tickets for free to give people in our fan-community for free!! As far as I know about 500 free tickets were given to admins of couple of other communities dedicated to Brandon/The Killers. I was mad at HP for this whole laptop nonsense but I think the fact they just gave so many free tickets for fans is so so nice! And well the gig was really great!  My friends and I were queueing since 5-45 am. 
I also had a chance to get to meet and greet with Brandon! sadly in the afternoon I’ve got information that meet&greet starts @8:30 pm!!! and there is VIP entrance for that!!!!
That was the hardest choise in my life. I had to chose if I should give up on meet&greet and get my spot at the barrier or I should give up on the barrier and hours of queueing (it was freezing in moscow).
After thinking for about an hour   I decided I can get to the barrier anytime in the future but it is a rare opportunity to get to the meet&greet,so @7 pm I went home and had some shots of  Jagermeister haha then got back to the venue @8 pm.
there were 4 of us(I mean my friends) going to meet&greet(and we were still sad for barrier)anyway, we got there and we took a group picture with Brandon. Then we asked if we can take single pics on our phone and thanks to Jeremy, we did it!
I hugged Brandon for the first time and I have to say he smells fresh hmm like soap or washing powder  ! and he feels very skinny and bony!  
anyway it was unreal and then I shook his hand twice!
then venue crew told us we should leave, but I saw my friend still didnt get picture with Brandon and I asked Jeremy for few more minutes because my friend has been at so many gigs and still didn’t have a chnce to take pic with Brandon.
Jeremy told that to Brandon! and Brandon took a time for my friend!! I find it very amazing and I am so thankful to Jeremy!!!!!!! what a kind man!!!!
 so after that we ended up in 4-5 row and the venue was FULL! and it is the biggest concert venue in russia!! for 8000 people!!!
I am very very proud!!
I think Brandon was in a great mood, or at least maybe he was pleasantly surprised with the audience reaction. Because people knew most of the lyrics and floor was bouncing!  Personally I’m really happy with the setlist, it was so great to hear Jilted Lovers  and I was afraid that he will ditch I Can Change but thankfully he didn’t.I was also really glad that he did Human but the most amazing thing about it was that during this song he said “Poekhali”(it means something inbetween “let’s go” and “let’s ride”) which is a really iconic phrase here, because it was said by Yuri Gagarin before his flight to space. Everyone knows this phrase in Russia! It’s kind of difficult to describe how cool it was to hear him saying this haha but this attention to detail is why we love Brandon so much right? Here is the short vid of this beautiful moment(btw his russian is flawless) - https://www.instagra…m/p/-CPtZXlFQt/ 
After the gig we decided to go to the hotel where he lived  to have some beer (it was my goal to have a beer at that fancy hotel bcos the killers also lived there haha). 
So me and my friends were having beer at the lobby bar and we thought Brandon already left because he had an early flight to London.

BUT SUDDENLY we saw him leaving with small suitcase and handbag (cuuute)

My friend had a short chat with Brandon and he told us that it was nice to play this venue because he saw New Order here couple of years ago lol it was so cute that he remembered it and brought that up himself! (because we also went to that gig and saw him and Ronnie and Dave there and it was one of the best days of my life lol)!!!

So I think everything was  perfect after all nervous days in the beginning when we didn’t know how to get tickets!

We ended up having too many tickets. We met Brandon 3 times and we had an amazing time with friends, bcos last time we have seen all each other in 2013 after The Killers gig in Kiev! So it was a really amazing amazing day!

Alsooo!!!!

We have made special gifts for the crew!

The Desired Vodkas:

And this one was for Brandon:


Also we’ve got flowers for the girls!! and they have put flowers in the hair on the gig1!!
