As most of you already know, the man on the left is Jason Butler from letlive. I’ve met him numerous times and I try to go to each show that is even relatively close to me. And each time he remembers my name, remembers seeing me, and even remembers my friend that I bring to every show. I’ve never cried when I’ve met a band member before but this time was different than any other time.
I went through the line to meet him, and each band member signed my poster and I got a picture with them. Jason signed the poster and we took this picture. But then as I started to back away from him and leave, he saw my stomach, which was exposed due to the fact I was wearing a kind of tube top. My stomach at the time was covered with scars and somewhat fresh cuts. I watched his face when he saw, and his smile fell. I felt horrible, because I could tell that it really upset him to see that. So I hugged him and when I did, I whispered to him that I was sorry, and that I wouldn’t do it again because honestly, seeing Jason’s face when he saw it, broke my heart. So after I told him I wouldn’t do it again. He hugged me tight and then grabbed me by my shoulders and brought us face to face. He said, “Please don’t do it again, you’re beautiful. You are so beautiful. Please don’t do it. Come here” And he wrapped me up in his arms again and held me for what seemed like forever. I tried hard to fight back tears and he let me go. At that point he could tell that I was about to cry, and he pulled me into ANOTHER hug. So finally I took a picture of him and my friend I brought and I walked away, tears falling from my eyes at this point. And I turned to him one last time and I told him I loved him. He looked up and smiled and said “Love you too.” And that, my dear children, was the highlight of my warped tour.
