I Met My Idol In Real Life And It Was A Nightmare

    Hi! My name is Gina. And this is me. (Note - no need to VO this: we see a tiny music club packed with people. Among them there's Gina). And this is Tom. (Note - no need to VO this: We see a young man with an acoustic guitar performing on stage). It's October 2018. I don't think I've ever been happier in my life than I was that night. I could not even imagine how awfully my happiness would be destroyed, and how soon. But first, let's back up for a sec.
    I guess a lot of you guys know what it's like being a fan of someone. Either it's a superhero or a rap artist, or an actor, or a basketball player, I mean it feels good to have someone in your life that you've never met, but who's like... a member of your family.
    Most of my friends have someone like that. An idol, I guess. I found my idol two years ago when I first saw Tom. Tom is a guy from our town, who started to play music when he was at high school. First he would just play and sing for friends, but it didn't take him long to become something like a local celebrity. He's a singer-songwriter and
    So when my older sister took me to one of his shows in 2017, I felt like I had become a part of something huge. I was standing in the crowd at this tiny 100 person show, blushing, and feeling butterflies in my stomach for the whole two hours. That was when I became a fan.
    I loved everything about Tom. It was not just about his music. Of course I followed him on all of his social media accounts, and every day I became more and more convinced that he was the perfect human being. He had two dogs that he saved from the streets, he was a vegetarian, he spoke a lot about treating other people and our planet with love and care. I learned so much from him every day, that other people started to notice the change. The only times I would lose all the love, were times when someone would insult Tom or his music.
    And pretty soon I understood that Tom was right on the edge of a breakthrough. For several years already he was a local star, but even though all of his songs were online and he was trying to promote them, something was standing in his way and it was taking too long. But... I was proud that my idol was not someone with millions and millions of fans worldwide - 99 point 9 percent of them would never meet their idol in real life, but here I knew I was Tom's biggest fan in the whole world, and I had a real chance of meeting him in person someday, or becoming a part of his team, or something bigger than that!... But that was even too bold to think about.
    So imagine how good it felt when one day he announced a fan video contest. The one who does the best cover of one of his songs gets to spend A WHOLE DAY with Tom and even become a part of his debut music video. This was so intense. Of course, I took this challenge seriously. My mom knows a woman who is a singing teacher, and I even took a couple of lessons from her to be able to sing better. I learned all the chords perfectly, and wrote the script, but the main thing was putting all the love I had for Tom into it. And I think I managed to do that. He promised to announce the results at a concert in October, so I started counting down the days. And by the amount of the videos that were sent, I can say that Tom had more fans than I expected in different parts of the country.
    Flashforward - to that night at the concert. After his amazing set onstage he announced the name of the winner, and... my heart sank. It was someone else. Then about ten seconds passed and he said that there were actually two awesome videos and that he couldn't choose between them, so there were two winners of the contest... and I was the second one. And that, I repeat, was probably the happiest moment of my life.
    So, I started waiting and getting ready for the day. Every day I would think through all the possible scenarios. What if he wants to see me again after that? What if he gets disappointed when he sees me? I was making myself really anxious.
    So anyway, the day came. I had the program 3 days prior, and this is what was going to happen: Tom was supposed to pick both of us up, go to his house, and we'd hang out together at his studio, then there would be the video shooting, and then an awesome dinner with him. Even after all the events had taken place, I still feel kinda excited writing about it.
    First of all, Tom did not pick me, it was his friend who had organized all of this. That was an unpleasant surprise, but there was also good news. The second winner got sick and could not make it. I mean... it's not as if I was happy that someone got sick, but… of course I was happy that it would be just about Tom and I.

    I waited like 8 hours to know my idol in a Line. The moment i was infront of him he didn't even looked at me, he signed my poster, then I called his name and he saw me, i told him that I loved him, and he smiled and said Thank you, then tey moved me out of the place because we were so many fans getting autographs. I don't know if it was worth it, but meh...

    Lol my idols were all dead scientists like Sir Isac Newton, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and others. My idols live with me and they are my parents. Music idols? Demis Roussos, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig Beethoven, and all of'em are dead. I will never be disappointed because I knew how to choose my idols.
