That’s what I came to do.

I was prepared to do just that until I walked into my audition and saw him. Tall, mysterious, and gorgeous to boot, he was sitting at the coaches’ table with three others, ready to judge my performance, and decide my future. Yet, since I’d walked onto the stage, he continued to look at anything but me. So, I did the one thing I was there to do: sing. When I opened my mouth and let those words spill from my lips, he finally looked up. Those startling, dark eyes collided with mine with such intensity that I knew one thing for certain: I would never be the same.

I am Layne Carter, newest contestant on Rising Star, the biggest singing competition on reality television. Nothing can stop me from giving this show my all. Not my horrible diva roommate. Not the fact that I’m terribly homesick and miss my family. And certainly not my uncontrollable growing attraction to my coach, Beau Tanner, award winning country superstar. Nothing will stand in my way.

And I’m wrong.

Later in the show, I walk out onto the riser on the stage and await my cue. After performing my song earlier in the show for votes, this piece is purely for entertainment. No votes will be cast. No comments will be made. Just Beau and I performing together on stage. Again.
The familiar melody of Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson’s “Don’t You Wanna Stay” fills the auditorium. I’m positioned above Beau on a riser on the opposite side of the stage. The choreography has us singing apart, yet slowly working our way towards each other until we meet in the middle of the stage.
“I really hate to let this moment go, touching your skin and your hair fallin’ slow. When a goodbye kiss feels like this…”
My mind is flooded with memories of kisses shared with Beau. The janitor closet, the hotel room, backstage in his dressing room. All of those kisses come flooding back in bright, Technicolor. Each one better than the last.
“Let’s take it slow, I don’t wanna move too fast. I don’t wanna just make love, I wanna make love last. When you’re up this high, it’s a sad goodbye…”
My feet are moving down the steps of the riser on their own accord. It’s as if they know, that with each step they take, they’re heading towards Beau. Like some invisible, cosmic pull, we move in unison towards one another. Our eyes locked and unable to look away, we get closer and closer to the other as we sing the song we’ve rehearsed only a handful of times.
“Don’t you wanna stay here a little while? Don’t you wanna hold each other tight? Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight? Don’t you wanna stay here a little while? We could make forever feel this way. Don’t you wanna stay?”
As if I didn’t feel those words reaching into my soul, I sure feel their power when Beau reaches out with his left hand and caresses my cheek. It’s a sweet, seductive, and possessive gesture that leaves me breathless and slightly off-kilter. Thank God we’re reaching the end of the song, because I’m not sure how much more of his touch I’d be able to handle in front of millions. There’s no way to appear unaffected when my entire world is spinning out of control. I long to throw caution to the wind, step into his arms, and kiss his lips. Television show be damned.
