Just in Case

Me and Matt exchanged a look of both complete shock and joy before turning back to the man.

“It's nice to meet you Kevin” Matt said, shaking his hand. I wanted to stay and listen to the business talk but Matt insisted I buy myself a drink to start the celebrating off. Twenty minutes later Matt walked off me, completely over-the-moon.

“So what happens now?” I asked, something about Kevin didn't feel right. The way he looked at me made me shiver a little.

“I go in tomorrow, sign the contract and start recording” He said excitedly, “Your coming with me right?” Matt added, a hopeful edge to his voice. I smiled and nodded. Where would he be without the lucky charm right? I ignored the feel of Kevin's blue eyes as we left the club and headed home.

The whole time Matt was talking excitedly, he talked about all the things we would have now. A decent washing machine, a new car and then turning to me with a grin.

“I'm buying you a dress for tomorrow! A brand new one, not some faded one from some charity shop” He said, pulling me along at a run to the high street.

“Matt, I don't think its a good idea to waste money just yet” I said in-between breaths. He stopped and studied me.

“Don't you have faith that I'll make it Soph?” he said, using his nickname for me.

“Of course I do, it's just” I hesitated, “Just in case” I finished lamely, taking his hand and pecking him on the cheek. He grumbled a fine and we walked home.

“Shops would've been closed anyway” He said with a yawn as we crawled into bed.

“But we did it, we got a the deal. This is it Soph, I just know it” He said, his voice as happy as a little child's on Christmas morning. I withheld my doubts and worries and fell asleep.

The End
