I wasn't in the mood to go to town so I decided to book a holiday online. I looked at lots of different websites but I couldn't find the right holiday for me. Then an idea struck me. What about Finland? My brother lives in Helsinki and he always phones me to ask if I want to come and visit him. So I phoned my brother and he said that I could go over and. I booked a ticket for a flight out the next month and I e-mailed my brother to say that I had got an aeroplane ticket and that I would be out there the next month.
I was so excited to see my brother for the first time in 2 years. Dave's ex- girlfriend was Finnish you see, and he moved out there to live with her but sadly she died in a car accident. He didn't want to come back to the UK so he decided to stay out there.
I had packed everything I needed for the holiday and finally the day had come. I did some last minute things and left my house and caught a taxi to the airport. I checked in at the airport and went into the departure lounge. I visited a shop to get a copy of Kerrang! (I'm into that sort of music) and a drink. I sat down on one of the seats in the departure lounge and began to read some of my magazine to pass the time. I noticed that a man in a black beanie had sat down beside me. I looked at him. He looked strangely familiar. He said quickly: "Sorry, is this seat taken?" I noticed he had a low Finnish accent which sounded kind of English at some points. I said "No." I looked at the front of my magazine. The same person was on the front. Ville Valo. Lead Singer of HIM. He sat next to me! I quickly turned to the page of the HIM article and started to read. Ville glanced at what I was reading. "HIM fan?" He said to me with a cute smile on his face.
"Yes. I like your music very much. So," I said, "What are you doing here at this airport then?"
"I'm going home to Finland. The other guys have gone to visit Bam in America. We've just finished a tour here. Did you come and see us?" Said Ville.
"No Ville. I couldn't get tickets. Oh my God! I'm going to Finland too, to see my brother. His girlfriend died recently in a car crash" I said with a sad expression on my face "Really? I'm so sorry." Said Ville, "So what's you're name then?".
"Kate." I said, "It's incredible to meet you Ville!"
"Pleasure....pleasure! You too." Ville blushed.
Ville took off his black coat to reveal a Rolling Stones tank top which had the Forty Licks logo on it. He kept his scarf on though. He scratched his heavily tattooed arm. The rockstar reached into his jeans pocket to take out his nail varnish. He took off the lid.
"Ville, there are many people here who are over 40 and don't realise that guys who put nail varnish on are very cool. They think people like that are gay!" I explained. I looked around to see if I was right.
"Oh. Maybe..... you could.... do it for me." Ville said with hesitation in his voice. He gave me his nail varnish and I took off the lid. I took his left hand and brushed his thumb with the jet black coloured varnished. "Your hand feels so soft." Said Ville in a very sexy voice. I concentrated on his fingers while in my mind I was almost melting. I did the rest of his fingers and he gave me his other hand. I did his other hand and he said: "They really do."
"Thank you." I said.
"I'm just gonna go to the toilet. Could you look after my stuff?" Said Ville.
"Yeah, sure." I smiled.
Ville walked away. I almost burst out laughing.
I said to myself, "Oh my God- Ville Valo!"
After about 5 minutes Ville had came back. At that same time the tannoy sounded to say the Helsinki, Finland boarding gate was open for all passengers.
Ville said: "Well I guess we better get going."
"Yes." I said. I picked up my hand luggage and he picked up his stuff too. He put his coat back on and waited for me to put away my magazine and stuff. I put my bag on my back.
"Lets go then." I smiled.
"Yep. Lets." Ville smiled.
We walked to the boarding gate and queued to show our tickets and passports. Ville showed his ticket and passport first and then I showed my tickets and passport. We walked down to the shuttle thing that takes you to the aeroplane. The attendant said to us: "We only have room for one more person on this shuttle."
Ville jumped on the shuttle and said, "Sorry Kate. I'll see you on the plane maybe."
I stood there and watched the shuttle leave the station. After a while the shuttle came back and I got on it. A dozen people got on the shuttle and then the shuttle left the station. I arrived at the aeroplane and I could see Ville entering the plane with a few people behind him. Well he was the only person there who was wearing a black beanie so I guessed that it was him. I joined the queue for the plane and within a few minutes I was on the plane. I looked at my ticket for my seat number which was F11. I looked at the different rows of letters and numbers and said them until I found the seat. I heared a voice. "Hi Kate." I looked in the row. It was Ville!
