BACK BEAT, THE WORD IS ON THE STREET
THAT THE FIRE IN YOUR HEART IS OUT

Corona was always going to be a place that would draw mixed emotions out of Davey. He love it and the friends that were also living here, but then there were times when he just wanted to leave and move somewhere else. Something or another always kept him here but lately since returning from his tour he has been thinking about how it would be to move elsewhere. He didn't even enjoy living in his house anymore, living alone just it wasn't the same anymore. He felt lonelier then before and it sucked. The first time he stepped back into his house he found himself standing in the doorway of Theo's room for however long just staring into the empty room. Well there was still a bunch of his stuff inside but clearly lacking what was most important to him. Of course Theo wasn’t the only person he was missing but that was obvious to who knew. He'd spent the tour trying to forget, to move on as much as one could, to ignore what he was feeling about all this and just work and perform his heart out. And being away helped to a certain extent, but of course the moment he gets back it all comes flooding back. He just had to take some comfort out of the fact that he and Lucy didn’t completely hate each other, Theo was in great hands and happy. Oh and the tour was pretty damn successful.

Touring was always an amazing experience and to have it go as well as it had with taking as long of a break as he did, it meant the world to him. Having the best friends with you throughout the journey definitely something that helped towards that. Especially when more came and hung out for a night or two- oh and having Theo there to share some of the experience was the cherry on top really. That little guy makes everything so much better, and that was just pure fact. Davey spent most of his last interview on the road talking about how awesome fatherhood was and how much he loved Theo. He regretted nothing and he never would. Going back five years, Davey would’ve never guessed that he would’ve fallen for his best friend and have a kid, but now that’s all happened he wouldn’t have wanted it to turn out any differently.

With a mass of thoughts going through his head it was about time he got out and was social. Getting a text from his dear friend Adelie lead to just that happening. Davey had awoken that morning, showered and managed to get some breakfast in him. He’d rented out this suite because he was being a complete weirdo with not being able to stand being in the house he’d shared for the past few years. Hopefully it’ll pass and he’ll go back there but until he gets used to being home, and living alone, he’ll just stay where he was staying. He knew that a few friends would probably smack him upside the head for at least not asking to stay with them, but he didn’t feel like being a burden. Anyways, with plans to meet up in twenty Davey collected his essentials and headed out. It was a nice day out, but that was expected this time of the year in California and most of the time here, right? As he walked along towards the beach he adjusted his Ray-Bans, letting random memories of tour cloud his mind which automatically brought a smile onto his face. As he arrived at the beach he tried his best to look around hoping to spot Adelie so he could sneak up on her but it seemed he was there first. Or so he thought seeing as he couldn’t see her, but given the amount of people that were here it wasn’t a surprise.

my voice is an echo
The thing about being a mother in a relationship who found her family to be more important than just about anything else was that the words 'social life' retained very little meaning to Adelie. She was social, when she had to be. She was social to her clients and with the other mothers of kindergarteners she sometimes met and social enough when she was at one of Caspian's shows. She had a lot of practice being cordial to strangers, and that's most of who she saw that she wasn't related to or dating. In a new relationship it was bound to happen a little bit, no one you'd rather talk to or see or spend your time with, etc. But her and Caspian were not as new, and Adelie knew very much the importance of making sure your friends knew you still loved them.

Of course, if your friend was dealing with a break up and no longer living with his son, touring across the country and warding himself off from people who wanted to help him with the heartbreak, it made it a little more difficult. But Adelie did still love Davey, very much. She also understood that people grieve in different ways, and the tour had been planned before anything else had even happened. She'd thought about him, worried about him, but it hadn't been constant and she hadn't demanded he pour out his feelings. She knew better than that. Still, it was nice to get his text saying that someone had woken him up to his behaviour. She hadn't taken it too personally, but it was going to be good to have Davey back, in more ways than one. Seeing him on tour had been wonderful, she'd been in charge of Theo and her attendance and the fact that she'd been there and taking care of him was one of the only reasons it had happened. She hadn't seen Davey since, and was looking forward to the prospect.

It was early enough that Piper was in school and that Caspian was at work. Although she could have been using the time to edit and print pictures or practicing her setlist, Davey took the cake. Armed with her camera as always, and wearing a simple green sundress, Adelie power walked, departing a little bit later than she meant to, her blue converse slapping the ground harder than necessary in irritation at herself. She didn't want to be late, she hated being late, hated the worry that accompanied it. The beach was close enough from her house, and she and Davey knew where to meet. He was there already, scanning, or so she assumed. He had sunglasses on and she couldn't completely tell. She stopped, snapped a picture of him there, and kept walking towards him. Feeling a bit silly, she called out when she was close enough, "Hey, didn't I see you play in a garage band at a bowling alley one time?" Teasing Davey was always fun. She walked up to him and gave him a huge, long hug, the kind you gave the people you'd adored since you were 15. "Hey stranger."

this is for davey. there are words. my character is wearing---. and my notes are hey i love you. boom. if Adelie wasn't the reason Theo was allowed to visit on tour...I can change that but she still totally came to see Davey and YEA.

BACK BEAT, THE WORD IS ON THE STREET
THAT THE FIRE IN YOUR HEART IS OUT

Davey loved being a dad, it was something he could yell from rooftops. Of course he didn’t think he would be someone that would end up being like that because of his history with his own dad but hey, here he was loving fatherhood. And he really couldn’t wait for the days when Theo was older and could come and travel on tour with him for longer than a few shows. He’d want Theo to be with him for longer bonding time on the road just so he could understand and see what his daddy does for a living, and hopefully he’ll enjoy it just like Davey would. It would be awesome and it was something that Davey had been thinking about a lot when he was alone with his thoughts, or after he got done Skyping with the little guy. Time will tell, Davey was just happy Theo got to see him perform when he did during this tour. And of course he was happy to have Lucy there too, and every other friend that popped on tour to see him. And also, the fans had been amazing throughout the tour.

Davey never liked worrying his friends, but given his history of handling things of a serious nature he really wasn’t surprised to know or find out how worried people were. He always felt guilty when he did find out how much of a jerk he’d been because of the effect of him distancing himself from those who really are important to him. He knows that he should be able to turn to just about any of his closest and best friends like Adelia when he’s not feeling his best of going through whatever, but opening up easily has always been one of Davey’s flaws. Demanding he spill his feelings will never get anyone anywhere, and he was glad that his friends did respect that and waited for him to come to them. For Davey, when he was being distance for whatever reason, he never really knew when he would snap out of it but when he finally does it was an awesome feeling. And since then he had been feeling a lot better. It was good to be home even given his current situation of not being able to enjoy being in his home yet. Maybe he was just being over dramatic about it. Though, right now he didn’t really care because he missed having Theo all the time like crazy.

Davey was usually the one that was late so he wouldn’t hold it against her. Besides she wasn’t that late so it was all good. He wasn’t sure if he’d get to see Piper also but then along the way he did remember that she was probably in school right about now. He missed that little girl and her ability to make him smile and laugh with ease by saying or doing just about anything. Maybe he’ll go pick her up with Adelie after this hangout session. Taking out his phone he started playing Temple Run but anyone who has played that game will know how completely frustrating it was, so he slipped his phone back into his pocket. Looking over he caught a glimpse of Adelie as she was lowering her camera after taking the photo of him. A smirk quickly tugged at his lips at her comment. ”Yeah, you probably did but now I’m like super famous and you’re lucky I’m not charging you for that photo.” A chuckle left him as he shook his head. Wrapping his arms around her to return the long embrace he was all smiles. ”Hey back...” Letting go he stepped back, ”It’s good to see again, you know, without having a schedule to stick to or anything.”

Motherhood had always been expected of Adelie. If anything, it had taken longer than anyone thought it was going to. Even her friends whom she'd told over and over again that she was marrying at 18 and having a quick wedding for love, not because she was knocked up, hadn't believed her. Nobody got married at 18 without pregnancy involved and many people who had pregnancy involved didn't get married at all. Piper had been a product of soulmates who had made it as official as possible very very young, but there wasn't even a linger of regret over this if Adelie ever brought it up. Her daughter was her life, her world. People without children couldn't really understand, and she loved that it gave her and Davey an extra connection. Just as he missed Piper, she missed Theo. She'd gotten to hang out with him during the shows she'd attended, but only some since Lucy had been there as well. Though the two women had always liked each other, it had been mildly awkward. There weren't sides per say. Lucy had needed to do what was best for her and Adelie was certainly sympathetic to that. But she was closer to Davey, knew him better, loved him more, and they all knew that.

Adelie always worried about people, it simply intensified when there was something to ACTUALLY worry about. Her anxiety over those she loves was something she kept close to herself and tightly controlled so no one else could see. They didn't need to know that sometimes when she watched a friend get in their car it made her want to vomit with concern. It wasn't necessary for anyone to know that when someone was more than 5 minutes late to meeting her she had imagined over 20 ways that something had happened to them. That was her burden only. When she had something to actually worry about for a friend, like a break up or financial trouble, it was nearly a welcome relief to be able to shift her concern into something she could manifest. But she'd waited, knowing that when people had tried to pull her out of her grief how much she hated it. Loss taught a person a lot of things. One of them being how at the end of the day, pride wasn't going to get you anywhere but lonlier and feelings worse, that humility was a hard and necessary pill to swallow. You had to let people love you. You just did. Or you lost it.

"Whatever." she laughed. "I'm going to print it out later, get you to sign it and sell it on ebay for hundreds of dollars. Piper and I will eat lobster or something else ostentatious and it will all be thanks to you face." it was a joke and they both knew it. Though she had fun taking pictures of Davey, they were for three purposes only. Shits and giggles for later memories and possible embarrassment down the road, random shots to later add to her portfolio, or professional shoots of Davey and his band for whatever they needed. She'd done the pictures in most of their liner notes, been the one they called in for half of their magazine spreads, and tons of the concerts of theirs that she attended had her in front of the barrier snapping away and grinning as the boys played their hearts out. She loved working with them. It was always more fun with friends, and they were great to collaborate with and always had interesting, fun, or downright silly ideas. She was never afraid to boss them into the expressions she was after or to make them keep standing there til she had just the right photographs. The idea of scalping Davey's autograph in seriousness made her feel sick to her stomach. You didn't do that kind of shit to friends, although teasing about it was alright.

"It's always good to see you, but speak for yourself. I've only got til Piper gets out of school, but that's a couple hours yet. But you're welcome to go get the little monster with me if you like. I know she'd be happy to see you." she always was. Caspian might be home for lunch too, but that was more up in the air. Still, Adelie would love to see he and Davey spending more time together. They had loads in common and she loved seeing the people she cared about getting along. "You happy to be home? Are you hungry?" she'd looped her arm through his, a friendly gesture, and had begun walking just for the sake of it. They didn't have anywhere they were going, but it could be nice to feel like you did.

this is for davey. there are words. my character is wearing---. and my notes are hey i love you. boom.

BACK BEAT, THE WORD IS ON THE STREET
THAT THE FIRE IN YOUR HEART IS OUT

Maybe if Davey was big on marriage and the titles that came with it he would’ve proposed to Lucy a lot sooner than he did. But we all know he fucked that whole thing up. The thing with Davey was that he wanted to do it for more than what it was supposed to be. He’s always heard people talk about marriage as if it was something you had to do and that if you don’t then something was wrong, more or less. Marriage had been something that he’d witness and it had worked, along with it not. Maybe it was his parents failed marriage that put him off. Or maybe it was just something he didn’t believe was necessary to happen to make things “official”. He honestly had never really thought about it, but when it did come to him and Lucy he just knew that he did eventually want to marry her. But of course as their relationship went on and the things that happened, he had realized that he should’ve done it a lot sooner. But yeah, Theo was definitely the most important thing in his life and he would never regret having him or not having done things “traditionally” by being married first. It was the twenty-first century after all. Davey enjoyed the fact that Adelie and Piper could make those shows. He’d never let anyone take sides, that was just stupid. He and Lucy might not be a couple anymore but they were still friends as he hoped they always would be.

Yeah, to be honest, Davey was kind of hypocritical, because he would always worry about any of his friends even if they told him not to. You’re always protective over those you care about no matter what, at least that’s how it was for him. Anxiety was a horrible thing to deal with. For him, his omen that he tried to hide was depression. It was something he’d suffered from since childhood whether it was apparent back then or not. No one would’ve guessed because he had mastered hiding it. Of course there were times when it was hard to hide and hold back then other times, but for the most part his stubbornness about opening up helped him out. Not a great thing but it’s just how it was with Davey at times. Sometimes you just need and want to deal with or keep your issues to yourself, and that’s how it was with him. Davey knew he’d be nowhere good right now if he hadn’t let his friends in the times he had. Hell, he most probably wouldn’t have been here if he let his depression swallow him up completely. Davey fools a lot of people with his goofy smile and energetic ways, but being sad or down about anything really does get to him in a big way. He didn’t think he would’ve gotten through anything without the help he eventually accepted.

”Oh, I’ll sue.” He couldn’t even start to put a serious face on when he was smiling because of how happy being around a friend was making him feel. He loved being on tour, it was a huge passion of his, but being home with no schedules to keep to or anything of the like and getting to be around friends was awesome. And would always be so needed for him to stay functioning the way he did. Davey loved just taking random photos. He used to do it a lot with his own camera back in the day but he hasn’t in quite some time. Well, he kind of always had a video camera lying around nearby to catch anything new Theo does, you know how it goes. Davey enjoyed the fact that Adelie had done a bunch of photography stuff from him, it was always awesome and made things a hundred percent easier working with friends. Besides, Davey was a handful most of the time and Adelie did know how to handle him for the most part. It was always a fun time. He knew that Adelie or any of his friends wouldn’t do anything like that. Joking about it though, completely fine.

”I would most definitely love to come pick up that little monster with you. I missed her too.” A nod of his head was given. He had no problem sticking around and surprising Piper by being there to pick her up. As for sticking around further and spending time with Caspian, why not. He and Davey hadn’t really gotten to know each other. They’d probably nerd out about music once they got going. Nodding his head again to her question, ”Always happy to be home and I definitely can’t wait to start eating proper meals on a regular basis again.” Well, he’d try too. Not saying he was a bad cook but he did get lazy. And to be fair he did have a bunch of decent meals while on the road, you know, when they stopped at hotels and during days off. But while on the bus it was Lucy Charms and poptarts, and varies other junk. As they started walking, arms linked, he glanced around. It was nice to back. ”How is Piper doing? How’s work been? Fill me in!”

my voice is an echo
Seeing Davey live had been wonderful. Even though Adelie had been doing it since she was 15, back when he thought she was deaf and had been initially startled by her attendance, and subsequently her voice, it never got old watching her friend on stage. She still remembered those bowling alley shows, though as good as Davey's band was they hadn't stayed in those types of venue's for long. It was strange for Adelie to remember and realize how many people she knew who could properly be classified as famous. To her, part of Davey would always be that gawky 14 year old who had exclaimed good naturedly about her ability to hear, the face he'd made when he was 16 and had heard her sing for the first time and the astonishment on his expression, their hundreds of jokes and millions of memories. The fact that there were strangers, thousands of strangers all over the world, who loved him like he belonged to them too, was strange when she thought about it too much, so she actively worked not to. It was nice to be raising her daughter from as early an age as possible on good, live music. It was fun to see her face as Piper looked at how back stage worked and seeing her beloved TurtleDavey doing exactly what he loved. Adelie loved the example it gave her daughter, that she could in fact do whatever she wanted if she worked hard enough at it.

Adelie had never been entirely fooled by Davey when he tried to hide his negative emotions. They were too much kindred spirits in that sense for her not to see what others didn't, but she was also too understanding to demand it out of him very much. Sometimes, but not often. They were very close, but there were lines you had to let the person with the actual problem cross first. She knew that better than most. You loved people anyways, even when they were frustrating, and it had been hard for Adelie at certain points when Davey refused to let anyone help him. But what he knew, had always known, and had occasionally had enough sense to actually take advantage of, was the fact that Adelie was always, always there for him. Today was proof.

She laughed loudly at the idea of being sued by him, and he was grinning too. She loved verbally sparring so much, and jumped at the chance to do it with anyone who could or would. Adelie knew some people who couldn't even watch the sarcasm fly over their heads, such were the blank looks they would give her, but not Davey. He got the jokes, he hopped on them, and they flew away together laughing all the while. It was part of why their friendship worked so well, their complimentary senses of humor. You had to have a sense of humor when it came to taking pictures of him, and that was another part of her success with shoots with him and the band.

"She'd be absolutely delighted to see you. She went to school the Monday after we saw you and bragged about how late she got to stay up and the fact that she knows a rock star. She even discussed with me that, if he weren't so much younger, marrying Theo probably wouldn't be so bad, especially if it made you two related. Five year olds are something else." she told him, laughing again. Piper had eventually settled on never getting married and just becoming rich on her own, although Zachary had been a contender for about five minutes, before the little girl had sniffed that he would be too much work to marry. Adelie had actually snorted when she heard such a statement come from her daughter.

"It's always nice to hear that Da King, has returned." she said, assuming her best Rafiki accent for the last part. Davey would get the Lion King reference in a heartbeat, it was something she'd said to him consistently over the course of the years. Also multiple jokes had been made about where the King was in relation to the building. It's possible that some of these had lost their charm, but that wasn't about to stop her. "Getting meat on your bones is a good idea, always. I definitely meant now though, are you hungry, do you want beach food?" he was always so skinny, but she knew that was part of his genetic make up, along with the fact that his eating habits were less than stellar. "Oh gosh, where to start. Piper is doing great. Really great. She's getting top marks in kindergarten, she's smart enough her teacher almost doesn't know what to do with her. Her imagination is so vivid, she makes up the craziest stories and half the time gets Caspian to act them out with her. She's reading really simple books, but then we read 'Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? and she asks things like, 'Mommy, what if one of the animals is blind? Or deaf, if the red bird is deaf how can he sign what he sees? How do they know what he's chirping even if he can hear? Birds can't talk, they can only sing!'" Adelie shook her head, raking her fingers back through her hair. "I don't know how I'm supposed to answer half her questions, it's incredible." she sighed, but it was a happy sigh.

"Caspian's doing well, his album is starting to get off the ground, which is great. We're doing well too, and Piper loves having him around." she'd say more if he asked, but how wonderful her relationship was going wasn't something she wanted to harp on about considering what was going on with Davey. On to the next subject. "Work is fine. I'm doing less wedding singing, and more photography in general. A lot of engagement shoots and senior pictures, more family photo shoots and I'm going through old stuff to see if any of it is good enough to go in Caspian's liner notes, but I'm hired for those anyways and I'm mostly checking how much work I have to do for those." she hesitated, wondering if she should tell Davey the latest prospect, and decided that he'd probably like the good news. "I might be doing an exhibition too. Of just my stuff. I'm still working on figuring the overall theme for it. It might not happen, but it's leaning towards probably and that's...cool. Hoity toity types might buy my prints for exacerbated prices because that's how art works. I can't entirely believe it yet, but that works cause it hasn't happened yet." she shrugged, but happiness at the prospect radiated off of her. She hadn't spent her life holding her breath for this type of oppertunity, and despite all the mights she claimed, she was jumping, absolutely leaping at it. "How are you? Seriously seriously how are you? How was tour aside from the nights I saw you? Give me the deets, kiddo." she said, bumping his elbow lightly with hers, which was easy because it was their linked arms.

this is for davey. there are words. my character is wearing---. and my notes are hey i love you. boom. also oh my gosh i'm sorry I PROMISE TO WRITE LESS IN THE FUTURE GOTTA KEEP THESE MANAGABLE NOT LIKE I NORMALLY DO. I'M DETERMINED AND SORRY.

BACK BEAT, THE WORD IS ON THE STREET
THAT THE FIRE IN YOUR HEART IS OUT

Davey loved being on stage performing. He never cared if it was in his bedroom, a bowling alley with a small amount of people watching or a sold out venue like the House of Blues. It was a love, it was his passion. In those early days he didn’t think anyone would really care much about his then band. Now though, it amazed him all the time at how many people followed his career and were fans till this very day. He was forever grateful to have such amazing people supporting him, and of course he was grateful for the support he got from those closest who always seemed to be there for him no matter what. He was a lucky guy to have such awesome people in his life, whether they were his best friends or fans. When Davey first Adelie sang he definitely surprised. The two have shared a lot of memories and inside jokes since establishing their friendship. Davey tried not to think of those who think of him that way. He knew he had some fans that were a little too obsessed and the like but there wasn’t much he could do about that. He didn’t think about that too much so it didn’t bother him. Theo has already been educated by some of the great classics, helps when you have two musical parents. Not that any other parent couldn’t have the same effect, but yeah, Davey couldn’t wait until he could take Theo to live shows. It was cool having Piper there, it gave him an idea of how it would be when Theo was her age and could be there and understand more of what was going on. It was exciting. The one thing Davey would always preach was that you could do anything if you put your heart into it. You just had to work hard, have thick skin and be true to yourself.

Being the way he was, the dorky goofball who was almost always full of energy bouncing around, it did take a lot to hide the less than happy emotions and depression. He thought he’d done a pretty good job for the most part. Deep down he figured those closest probably caught onto it at some point. He was glad none of those close friends tried to force whatever out of him during those down times, it most probably wouldn’t have been pretty. Well, Davey was never big of negative confrontation so he would’ve ended up just avoiding whoever. That was easier for him. Honestly he sometimes didn’t get how his friends put up with him, but he was certainly glad they had all these years. He hated worrying those who actually cared about him, and always felt guilty when his stubbornness got the best of him. He definitely had a relapse and went back to old habits when he and Lucy broke up, but he was trying to make up for it.

Playing around with friends and making fun of serious things was just a fun way to pass time, and he’ll always be up for a bit of verbal sparring. Sarcasm was an interesting thing to play with, and Davey loves the looks on the faces of those who just didn’t get it or couldn’t get it because they were too stuck up and boring for their own good. Some people just needed to let loose and have a bit of fun. For the most part what comes out of Davey’s mouth is usually impulsive and not thought about before he says anything, which has obviously gotten him in trouble, but sometimes he does think about what he could say to get a reaction. Having a sense of humour was always an important quality to have. Pure fact!

A grin quickly took over his face when she told him how Piper had gone to school and bragging, and that goofy chuckle left him as she went on to explain how Piper discussed marrying Theo to be related to him. ”She’s one of my favourite people, ever.” Nodding his head another chuckle left him. He had to deal with his own younger brother telling him how he wanted to marry all his “hot” girl friends throughout the years. Davey pondered on the thought of who he was into the last time he saw him. He was pretty sure he even discussed with Bridget how their wedding would be like. He was just as much of a dork as Davey was. Though, he is probably a lot smoother with the ladies then Davey was back then.

”I may have up and left, ate junk and sung some songs but I’ll always return.” Of course he got the Lion King reference- hell, now he wanted to go and watch the Lion King! Davey has always enjoyed the fact that his last name was easy to use for those kinds of jokes and references. He loved his last name actually. Bringing his hands up he drummed his hands against his stomach. ”I actually could do with some beach food right about now.” He was indeed one of those lucky people who had an awesome metabolism, but that did always get him asked if he was eating enough and the like. Though, most had gotten used to the fact that he was just a scrawny guy. Hey at least he filled out a bit since those teen years. And yes, his eating habits weren’t exactly healthy most of the time, especially since leading up to and during tour life. Davey was happy to hear that Piper was doing well and still had that awesome vivid imagination. ”She’s such an awesome kid, and way smarter than I was back then.” True story bro.

Hearing about Caspian’s album doing well brought a smile to his face. It was always nice hearing stuff like that. He supported all real passion musicians. The music industry would be so much better if more raw and real talent got put out there. But let’s not get into that because Davey could go on and on. He really didn’t mind if she wanted to talk about her relationship, he was happy for her. But sure, hearing how Piper loved having Caspian around did briefly make him wonder if there was someone else around Theo. Luckily that next subject distracted those thoughts and stopped them from progressing any further. He smiled, ”glad you’re still kicking ass and taking names with the photography.” Please, she knew she couldn’t keep such information from Davey. Not allowed. His face lightened up once again as she indeed told him the good news. ”That’s awesome! I’m totally gonna pretend to be one of those hoity-toity folk and buy something. Just saying...” What? He was bound to want to so why hide it? Davey had seen a lot of photos that Adelie has taken and he knew she had the talent to kick-ass with this exhibition. It was nice knowing he could be the supportive friend this time around.

A familiar chuckle escaped him as she knocked elbows with him after for details about how the tour went. ”I am... exhausted.” He admitted, ”but I loved every moment of it.” He could only smile as the many memories flashed through his head like a slideshow. ”Everything just went so well- well, you know, minus nearly breaking my foot and getting sick but other than that... I’m still in shock with how successful it was.” The hand of his free arm rose to his hair and he ran his fingers messily through it. ”I love my fans.”

I am your thought but the water is amnesia My name is on the tip of your tongue My image is slipping But your memory is gripping it This is my breath in your lungs You are the navigator who never could lead We were lost in the silver sea I was the ship who was too proud to ever sink Echo, my voice is an echo Of places I don't know And stories I've been told Echo, we all are connected A lighthouse, a voyage For history's sake Would you please take notice?
my voice is an echo
While some people had, over the years, dismissed Davey and his music, Adelie knew they were either jealous, clueless, or lunatics. He was one of the hardest workers she knew, when it came to anthing that mattered to him. It didn't surprise her in the slightest that he had the music career he did, and it was completely deserved. He was a talented man and he worked for what he wanted. Again, it made it no surprise that he was a good father. He worked at it, and he loved it.

Adelie couldn't, and wouldn't, fault Davey for grieving. Being a widow, it was hard sometimes when you wanted to be there for your friends. She'd been through something horrible, the kind of tragedy that all humans fear, whether they know to or not. As such, it could be difficult for others to feel like their problems were big enough to mention. It wasn't a comparison for her, it never was, but some people didn't know how to understand that. Adelie had to be careful of who she could comfort. It drove her insane when someone said, 'but it's nothing like what you've been through'. Even if that was true, it didn't take away from the fact that someone she loved was hurting and she wanted to help. She'd let Davey come to her, mostly. She'd given him space for long enough, anyways.

"You have good taste in people." she said with a grin. She was biased, naturally, but she'd confess to that fact all of the live long day. It was her daughter, it would only be an issue if she wasn't biased. Adelie had loved listening to Piper debate who she would marry. Though she didn't want Theo to get count out just yet, who knew what the future would hold, it had also hurt her heart a little bit. She was five the first time Grady had declared he would marry her. That was twenty years ago now. The realization nearly stopped her in her tracks. She was old enough to say something that she could remember well had happened twenty years ago. For a fleeting moment, Adelie felt very, very old. A widow with a daughter, she wasn't supposed to be allowed to say that til she was something like eighty. Then she shook it off. She was a young woman with an amazing kid, a wonderful and devoted boyfriend, and some of the best friends a person could ask for.

She gave Davey a grin and a shake of the head. "True enough. I wonder if I'll ever leave this place sometimes. Then I doubt it. Not with my family and people like you here." she was quiet for a moment. "You really promise you'll never pull a Nikki?" it wasn't really a fear of hers. Davey was a homebody, and Theo was here, his friends were here. It was in his job description to travel, but Davey never stayed away. Still, since it was brought up, she had an uncontrollable urge to ask. Not that she thought Nikki had done anything wrong, whatever was best for her friend was what Adelie was going to support. But the idea of having Davey around that rarely got under her skin and made her terribly uncomfortable. "Good, ya stick." she led them towards a food stand.

"What do you mean back then?" she teased. "I really don't know where she gets it sometimes. I know it's super cliche to say she teaches me things every day, but she does. Kids just...I don't know. Sometimes I look at her and I realize all the things I don't know and think about all the things she learns from me and outside of me and I freak out a little bit. I don't know how I'm lucky enough to be the mother of someone so amazing." she sighed, accidentally getting deeper than she meant to. At least she'd refrained from claiming all the good in Piper was from her father. Adelie knew better than that, but occasionally Piper would look at her in a certain way, or smile just so, and it would be so obvious that she was Grady's child that Adelie wanted to cry or hug her. She usually did the latter.

She shrugged. She didn't really think that weddings and pictures of graduating teenagers was kicking ass or taking names. Well, sometimes at weddings. It was nice to be behind the lens more. It was nice to simply view happiness, and to capture it as well as she can. That was what she loved about her job. His delight at the prospect of her show took her aback for a moment, then Adelie smiled. "God, that'll be embarrassing." but at the same time, she loved the idea of it. "I did a wedding for this couple who got me way more involved than I've ever been before. Hell, the wedding planner said she should have paid me for all the help I contributed. But the mother of the bride owns an art gallery, and Hope, the bride, is not taking no for an answer and is setting it all up. It'll be like I'm a real artist or something. It's weird...but cool." she was more excited than she was letting on. It was a pretty big step, and having the support of people like Davey made her want to take it even more.

Adelie nodded. She couldn't imagine what touring was like. Though plenty of her friends did it, her boyfriend would soon enough, that level of inconsistency was so foreign to her. "Oh yea, I get sick and nearly break my feet all the time while traipsing around the country. No big." she quipped casually. "They're really great. What was the craziest fan encounter this go 'round?" she asked, thoroughly interested.

I was so determined to make this short. Dammit.
TILLIE AT CAUTION <3

BACK BEAT, THE WORD IS ON THE STREET
THAT THE FIRE IN YOUR HEART IS OUT

Davey knew that his music wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. That was a given really but no matter what he always gave it everything he had for those who were interested and fans. He owed it all to those who have supported him since day one. He had some lazy qualities but when it came to fatherhood and his career, and anything that mattered to him, he would always give a thousand percent effort. Anyone who thought otherwise, well, clearly they didn’t know him all that well.

Davey would never compare his grieve to anyone’s, friend or stranger. Sure over the years he’s gone through a lot and other may have gone through the same or similar situations, but people grieve and recover from that grief in different ways. He would comfort his friends if they went through whatever, and he knew that his friends would be there- as much as he’d let them of course. To be honest as much as Davey would and wanted to be there for his friends, dealing with certain situations wasn’t something he was great at. In general he had a tendency to say the wrong thing and the wrong time, but he tried and he was still learning till this day how to handle the more serious or delicate situations those closest go through. He just took as it came and hoped for the best, but most importantly he hoped that whatever the situation was that whoever would get through it and be happy again. Space was always important to give also, he was good at that.

He smiled. ”That’s a fact I’m well aware of.” Was that cocky of him? Possibly but he liked to think it was true, for the most part. I mean not everyone in his life was full of innocence and the like but when it came to Piper, hell yeah, he had good taste in people. She was awesome. Davey liked to think that Theo would definitely marry someone special one day, but he honestly hadn’t thought too much about it because he just wanted him to be a kid for awhile so he could keep him around. He knew the little guy was going to grow up and start learning new things and it excited Davey but made him anxious all the while. He was his baby boy and meant everything to him, and he just wanted to protect him for as long as he could. Of course he knew he would have to let go so Theo could discover all sorts of things on his own. It was a hard subject to think about. He couldn’t imagine what it was like for Adelie when it came to noticing Grady within Piper in one way or another. As a parent you had to learn how to stay strong and put on the brave face, and he definitely looked up to Adelie when it came to that.

Another smile tugged at his lips as he gave a shake of his head. ”You have no idea how many times I’ve considered moving away from here.” Certain experiences throughout his life have caused him to serious consider leaving Corona, but it always came down to it being him running away, and that was something he didn’t want to do. If he ever moved away from Corona it would be because it was just time to move on to somewhere new. And he didn’t know when that would be. ”Honestly... I don’t think I can promise that I’ll never leave here, but for now you’re stuck with me.” I mean sure a part of him wanted to go buy a small apartment somewhere in Los Angeles so he could be closer to Theo not to mention his mother and younger brother, but he didn’t know how that would go down. And he knew how much it sucked to not have certain people around. With Nikki, she had her career to think about and being close to family was always nice. I mean don’t get Davey wrong, he was understanding but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t guilt trip her into coming back to Corona for however long. Hell, he even got her to agree to playing a few shows with him, like a mini tour type deal.

”Hey!” Of course he knew she was only teasing, though to be honest she probably was smarter than he was now too. Education and pretty everything develops all the time, so he knew most kids were getting better educated than he had. ”It’s fair to say that you do learn just as much from your kids as they do from you.” That’s what he heard and the more Adelie told him about Piper the more he believed it. And he was sure Theo was add to that when he gets older. Whenever he did hang out with Adelie and Piper it was just one of those things that get him thinking about how Theo will be in the years to come.

Okay, so maybe she didn’t think so but at least she was doing something she enjoyed doing and was pretty bad ass at doing so. Besides actually getting to do what you loved helped motivate you to continue doing it to get better and bigger opportunities. You got to start small before you get big, right? But still putting in the effort is what gets you where you want to go, it works in any career. ”hey, I know how good you are at what you do so if I see something I like- which I will! I’ll buy it.” His word was final. He smiled as he listened to her. There have been a lot of occasions where he’s worked with people who have ended up helping him in some way or another, and they’ve most likely become some of his closest friends within the music side of things, some on more of a personal level. And of course he tries to lend a helping hand in return. ”That’s pretty nice of them, and you are a real artist.” She’ll have his complete support without a doubt.

Tour was something he’d never want to give up completely. He knew it was going to be harder now that he had a kid but once the little guy is older he’ll be able to be there a lot more than he had been able to recently. And you know, leaving friends behind sucked too but they were more able to come and check out a show or two. But yeah, it was tiring after awhile. ”Oh... I take it you didn’t hear about that then. My bads...” He tried to pull off an innocent look but he wouldn’t be surprised if he got smacked upside the head for not telling her. It was no biggie though. Besides, he did post on his “tour diary” you know, that thing he rarely updated, as well as his Twitter, but of course he knew that would mean nothing. Oh fan encounters, always an interesting topic. ”Oh boy...” He let out a chuckle as he shook his head. He just always managed to have some crazy fan encounters, luckily though, meet & greets were different and other encounters were always a bad kind a crazy. ”There were a few but this one fan we’d noticed earlier as we arrived at the hotel, signed stuff, took photos etc but then turns out she was staying in the hotel and just seemed to be everywhere we went within the hotel, so Zak had to get involved because he thought she was crossing the stalker line.” Davey shook his head, ”and as he explained that she had to stop she kind of just came at me yelling all sorts of crazy things, it was pretty intense. She then thought she was getting into the venue that night to watch the show, which didn’t happen. That was the top crazy weird story for sure.” Of course not every encounter was weird and obsessive. ”Oh a day off over in Boston I met this guy, yes I have male fans, and we kinda bonded over similar experiences in our pasts. And he also had this sick tattoo and we ended up just skating around, it’s was one of those rare chill moments of the tour that I enjoyed.” He could literally go on with all kinds of tour memories, she just had to ask for what kind she wanted to hear or he might not shut up.
