I got something done!
This is an attempt at 3rd person POV for my writing homework. Open to feedback.
She steps delicately out of the limo into the dry heat of Vegas into the coordinated chaos of these types of awards shows. Flashes and the click, click, click of cameras, publicists barking orders while beefy bodyguards manipulate traffic flow. Her manager cradles her elbow and guides her through sea of people. Her nerves only evident by her intense focus on the five inch heels she’s wearing and the absence of mingling with all the familiar faces in the crowd. She’s typically the social butterfly at these events but tonight is her solo first performance for a television audience.
A familiar sensation grabs him as he catches sight of her heading for the first interview platform on the red carpet, a combination of heat and electricity. She’s wearing a barely there ivory silk top and a skirt that looks more like origami than fashion. He takes her in, her style is only one of the many things he admires about her. That’s why he is here tonight, to get a chance beyond the crossed paths and foiled attempts that have transpired over the last two years. He pulled all his strings to get onto the presenter list tonight and since there’s only one after party for this show he has a solid shot at getting some quality time.
He sees Stu, a renowned DJ and producer and a mutual friend making his way towards her, he seizes the opportunity to join him , surely she won’t blow him off in front of Stu. He has a look of determination as he focuses on his target as he catches up to Stu a few strides from her, he grasps his shoulder in greeting.
“Hey Man, long time no see. Hows the world tourer been?”
“Good man. About to spend some time on the ground cutting the album”
They reach her and Stu brushes her arm to get her attention.
She turns around with a big smile and greets Stu with a big hug.
“you know West right? “ Stu asks.
“Of course, just saw each other a few months ago at Coachella” she smiles at West and he goes in to hug her as well. Towering over her by at least 6 inches, even in her modified height, he leans down, secures one hand to her waist and whispers in her ear.
“I’m hella excited for your performance tonight, I worked every angle to be a presenter tonight. I knew this would be your first performance off your new album and I couldn’t miss it.”
She looks a little stunned as he pulls away. But before she can respond she is whisked away by her publicist and placed in front of the interviewer.
As she responds to the routine questions she glances over to the queue where he’s waiting his turn to be interviewed. His eyes are intensely focused on her, his mouth quirks up in a shy grin when they make eye contact. Her eyes widens slightly as she visibly catches her breath and quickly turns back to the interviewer.
