they go down to the lake and skip rocks, andrew listens even if he has absolutely no fucking clue who or what is going on when mark talks about all his favorite video games. they join in on a game of volleyball where they both suck and wind up ditching midway. they go wander in the woods and andrew pulls him behind a rock so they can scare those who pass by. they just hang out because that's something he knows he missed when he was busy on those sets, when he was working hours no kid should, when he would look out the window to see kids having a childhood meanwhile he had to act through his formative years. as he closes his eyes and lays back in the grass he listens to mark speak about his friends group and he gets lost in a time where he had to act out the hurt of going through his parent's divorce on a set before ever being able to process it. what he does is be there, because he never had that and maybe mark doesn't either or maybe he does. maybe it doesn't matter either way and this is a needed break regardless.
mark laughs and shrugs. "yeah, who knows. i'll direct him to the pyro of our group. he's got the most promise" then a pause. "today was cool."
"it was cool, yeah. you're in california, right?"
mark nods, his arms that are folded over his chest now falling to his sides.
"hey, this is for you. my number if you need anything, have a good ride back, alright?"
"oh, cool." mark looks down at the paper and he is trying to play it cool but he's also kind of excited about it. he shoves the paper in his pocket first then promptly takes it out so that he can put it into his phone right away. they're getting called to get back on the bus. "i should... go. but. thanks. that was a lot of fun, hanging out." one hairflip later and he's jogging off to go grab a seat on the bus.
there was bound to be a conversation but he didn't think it would come this soon. it's not even that soon, but too soon for him regardless. sneaking in to his trailer and laughing late at night together but making sure they don't sleep together, god forbid they just sleep together, because this is just sex and andrew doesn't even really know if he likes boys and he refuses to let himself think about it, really think about it, so he doesn't. he lets his feelings guide him and those feelings continuously bring him right back to him.
until it isn't just sex and andrew feels, he really feels, in a way that he's only felt with a girl before and how is that possible? how could it be? he finds himself losing focus more, swallowing hard when he sees him, getting nervous at the mere thought of him. at the thought of them together. that overworked brain doesn't pause and he thinks about the what if's: what if someone sees us. what if someone writes something about us. what if we get negative press. what if they ruin us. what if they ruin you. they're going to ruin you. i'm going to ruin you.
"i want to be--"
"no." andrew stops him before he has a chance to finish. "i don't want, and whatever you're going to say. don't say it. don't say it." please, i can't handle it if you say it.
he can't look at him. "you should leave."
"are you serious right now?"
andrew caves, he looks at him, and there's that hurt all over his face. the hurt he caused. he's forced to look away. cowardly again.
"really? after everything... you can't even look at me? not even that? fucking look at me."
"don't talk to me ever again." he leaves the trailer and slams the door shut.
"i know it's late and i'm definitely a little bit drunk but let me tell you something, okay. i. don't fucking care if everyone in the world knows about us because let them fucking know it, i like you and i like what you're doing - what we're doing - and even your" he laughs, "even your stupid fucking tattoos. i like those too. so, what was i saying? oh, right... why aren't you here tonight? rude as fuck. aaaaaanyway." a loud thud, scrambling, music and chatter in the background. "did i drop my phone? maybe. it's fine, it's all good. i'm gonna go. i think i'll see you later? yes, see you later. okay, bye, cya"

it's about a loss of control.
andrew fiske places a certain line that isn't meant to be crossed between him and his management. a professional relationship is born and playful occurrences come up but he refuses to fall into the trap of trusting too much, or divulging too much, of giving in to their desire to control him and who he is as a person, what he does, who he should and shouldn't see. the act of kissing his boyfriend regardless of whether or not people know about the title after his performance is something that happens without a second thought to it. he gets a look, he gives a look back, it's a moment in time. it's theirs.
until it isn't. until he has eight missed calls from his manager, three missed calls from his publicist, and he remembers that there maybe isn't such thing as a "theirs" when "theirs" also includes the greed that comes from fans, strangers, management and the general population of the internet alike. the dark side of greed. what's theirs is theirs until it isn't, until his agent is yelling about getting a heads up and andrew is yelling back about how he doesn't have to give him a heads up about his personal life because he's being paid to provide career services and that's it. he hangs up.
he threatens to fire his manager, he waves his arms wildly as he talks, he paces around, he burns through two cigarettes, his hand shakes but he hides it promptly. he can feel that loss of control brimming. he refuses it, refuses to be a pawn in anyone else's scheme when he's doing things his way this time. he knows how the game goes, he's played it and lost once before. once you're in the business, there's no getting out. you're stuck because you need it and it needs you. he's the only one that will allow himself to take control of what's about to hit the surface. if he doesn't feel like he's got a grasp on that sense of control, if the past is any indication, an explosion is bound to barrel through and no one in his path is safe.
I'm sending this on behalf of my client, Andrew Fiske, regarding the current waves hitting the news sphere about his connection to your client, Bazzi Bentz.
As you must be aware there has been a tweet circulating that has gained traction about their involvement with each other especially while they were together at "Camp Earth." There's no real hiding or denying it in such a sense and therefore I'm working on handling the press in such an arena especially with Andrew's upcoming film about to be released. I don't want any questions directed his way about it.
My client's sexuality has never been put in question unlike your client, who seems to pride himself on it and therefore I'd like to touch bases about how we can connect and create a mutually beneficial story here since it seems like there may possibly be some disconnect with how we choose to handle the public interest in our respective clients.
I'm not sure how you choose to conduct yourself in these situations that demand answers however I am of the camp where such things need to be addressed. I like to be ahead of the narrative, personally, to control the situation in a way that best benefits my client. Perhaps you take a more indifferent approach? By all means, please do advise.
Thanks in advance for your prompt response.

(spends 2 minutes trying to set everything up well)
"you know how people jump on here and are awkwardly looking around all shy like, 'hold on a minute guys we're just going to let a couple more people trickle in'" (laughs, shrugging his shoulders. behind him a beautiful pool, lush greenery, on a gorgeous day.) "we're not gonna let a couple people trickle in we're just going to get right to it." (he holds up and then sighs, settling the guitar on his lap.) "i just became that guy, didn't i? the guy who's about to play wonderwall? but... i'm not gonna play wonderwall, don't get crazy. no bleeding ears today." (he leans over and squints as he's looking at the screen) jholls.jade, i see you "
(the phone falls backwards so that the sky is visible. in the back, andrew lets out an audible, "ah, fuck" but keeps playing regardless and while he continues strumming the guitar he pauses to speak.) "maybe this is scenic for you? sure, let's go with this for a minute." (he doesn't fix it until he's finished.)
additional guest appearances from: rachel hsiung, will browder, rocky razin who provides beautiful harmonic clapping & libby rollins
(messes up and starts again) "none of you saw that, it was an illusion. like time.... and money... why is it we feel like we need to be a slave for the green? not the weed green, the other green. money green. something to think about."
"so how would you guys murder someone? live, laugh, leave your reply in the comments. i'm not condoning murder just trying to see who's paying attention to murder podcasts and tv shows."
(reads a comment that says 'i don't like you' out loud.) "okay, join the club."
(looks over at parker, mouths 'what does macaroni in a pot' even mean? - sadly the camera picked up on this whisper)
"will, is baumbach gonna answer me or you?" (he looks all too amused at the game forming in his mind) "okay, you call first." (will calls noah baumbach but there's no answer. after about 5 minutes andrew calls and he answers. the boys both erupt in laughter and ramble at each other until looking to clarify they wanted to see who noah would reply to. noah gives them an earnest, 'what do ya want from me? i just got home. will, you're good, but i know if andrew calls he's either ready to go to lunch or wants to ask about some kinda messed up thing he's gotten himself into and since i know you two are in the hamptons...')
(after performing his acoustic version of harrison ford & david blaine) now welcome... harrison ford! (looks at the camera, squints) "...you guys really thought i'd have harrison ford out here? who do you think i am, alex goodhall? roy sommer? please."
"if it's completely legal are you even really living?" (a pause.) "anyway, that's why i'd never be a motivational speaker... don't listen to me."
