Rockstar Revealed

That boy in stormy night

I sneaked out of my room through the tiny window in my bathroom. My gang was waiting outside. I hopped in the brand new SUV of my friend & zoomed away. For a fraction of a second, I looked back at my house
” I am sorry Mom. I know you won’t like it, but you would not permit me either .”
How could I possibly miss the LIVE rock performances. Nay, can’t .” I will apologize ”  I thought. Western music was strictly prohibited in my ‘Intellect ‘ Family. My mother thought it ‘corrupts’ young minds [ I obviously begged to differ]
The venue was a small country  pub. It was oozing with infectious energy. I wanted to soak in as much as I could. I never felt this awesome anywhere else, especially not in my ultra boring biology classes. Here it was different. I could feel an instant connection with this place. Every cell of my body was literally ‘rocking ‘ right now. I was feeling ALIVE.
Two bands performed one after another. They were fabulous. The name of the third band was announced ‘ Mystique ‘. The crowd went in a frenzy . This band was an instant hit  last season. They played heavenly music, I heard from my friends. It was a band of five Members. As soon as they stepped on the stage, the crowd went wild. One song &  I came to know why they were so popular. We were standing at the other end of the hall so we all decided to move a little closer to the stage.
We pushed our way to the front. It was the first time I saw a LIVE performance from so close. I was jumping with euphoria & ecstasy. If  I missed this show I would rather die. The music took me to a stage of trance.
After 10 minutes, the lead singer moved back to catch a breath &amp; the guitarist took the center stage. The crowd cheered loudly. From where I was standing I couldn’t see his face. He came towards my side of the stage &amp; all the girls leaned over to click his pictures. He obliged, he took off his shirt flashing his toned torso with a ‘fallen angel ‘ tattoo on his back. ” <strong>I think I have seen this tattoo before</strong> <strong>, but couldn’t remember where ?'</strong> .  A huge cheer again. I joined in. These were the best moments of my life.
Three hours passed like magic. One of my friends who arranged the passes asked
” Do you all wanna met the band “
” Hey, Is it possible .”
” Everything is possible when I am here .” Rishi, he was a total show off but a nice guy.
We all went backstage. It was overcrowded. People were taking pictures &amp; autographs.  We all went straight in a small room where the band was. Rishi introduced us to some members of the band, but I was looking for the guitarist. After a few minutes, he appeared from a changing room. When I saw him I was shocked to say the least &amp; I bet he was stunned too….
He was none other than my very own Big Bro !!!!!
Bhai, you ??? Band ?? What is all this “
” Yeah, I play in this band. But how come you are here. Does Mom know .”
” Of course not. But how did you manage all this .”
” As you managed to watch this performance .”
”  You rock bro<span>.</span>That’s why I was wondering where I have seen that tattoo. I saw it when you came back from your “college trip [ or was it a college trip ?]. I asked about it, but you snapped. So this is your little secret.Hmm…  But what about Mom. What if she comes to know .”
Before he could answer a familiar voice came from back.
” We all shall talk to her together .”
I turned around. ” NO ways. PAPA .  You ?? Here ?? “
” Yes, Why?  I can’t be here .? ” He joked
I looked at my bro. ” Papa always knew it. In fact, he is the one who introduced me to the manager of the band .”
I was in shock of my life. I never thought this night was going to be so eventful.
” Ok, thanks for informing me now both of you all. But how about Mom. “
” I can’t take the bombarding alone. You two must face it too. After all both of you are my partners in crime .”
All of us laughed out loud &amp; headed  home,  planning how we are going to reveal our ‘Rockstar ‘ to Mom……
