This is the day I met Big Time Rush for the first time. The summer prior to this date, I first got into watching the boys on TV because my little sister, who was 4 at the time, loved the show. I really got into it, and I thought that they were very beautiful, and they were talented. After the summer concluded, I kept checking their website because I knew they were releasing dates that they were going to have signings on. I had found out that they were going to do a signing at a mall about 45 minutes away from my house. So, I bought up 3 wristbands for my sisters and I. This was going to be a surprise to my little sister.
As the days to the signing got closer, I made my little sister and I shirts to wear at the signing. Mine was pink and said ‘I love Carlos’ on the front, and hers said ‘I Love James’ on the front. She will always consider James as her soulmate. I had her put the shirt on that morning before we headed to the signing, and I did not tell her what it said. We got to the mall just about 3 hours before the signing, and we went up to the FYE to get our cd’s. I put my little sister’s wristband on her, and once she had her CD in her hand, I told her that we would be meeting Big Time Rush later that day. She freaked out, and we took pictures together of us posing with our CD’s.
The boys arrived fashionably late, and when they made their entrance, I held my little sister so she could see them through the crowd in front of us of girls about my age. There was a big group of hott guys in the front that began crowd sing-alongs of BTR songs. We inched closer and closer to the line, and Carlos kept standing up, giving the fans heart signs. When we got to the table, I let my sister go before me. James was first at the table, which was perfect. I lifted her up to show James her shirt, and he thought that it was adorable. She told James that he was her favorite. He told her that he loved yellow, the color of her shirt. Right then and there, he took off a yellow silly band that was on his arm, and he put it on my little sister and gave her a hug. My heart melted. My heart melted even more because, when she got to Carlos, he told her that she had beautiful blue eyes. They were perfect with her. She also got so excited when she got high 5’s from Kendall and Logan.
I had written a letter to Carlos, and I was excited to give it to him. When I stood in front of him at the table, my legs were shaking like jello, and so were my hands. I told Carlos that I wrote him a letter, and I handed it to him. He saw that my hands were shaking, and he asked me if I was nervous. I shook my head yes. Right then and there, he took both my hands in his. CARLOS PENA TOOK MY HANDS. He looked me in the eyes and told me not to be nervous, and that my letter is lovely. I died. Carlos was HOLDING MY HANDS. He then gave me a hug, which security were trying to stop them from doing, but he did it anyway. I received high 5’s from all of the guys, and I walked away on cloud 9.
Carlos and James especially surprised me so much in a great way. I have VIP to see them again August 12th, and my sister wants me to help her write James a letter, telling him how much she adores him, and how she will be in the crowd last night. She also wants to give him a picture from when we met them. I am just genuinely excited to see them again because they are truly really sweet boys. :)
