Begining Street Life.

~Delilah's P.O.V.~
I walked around sluggishly, dragging my heavy backpack and violin case with me. "Its gonna be hard to adjust, but I can manage." I sighed deeply, roaming the streets of New York. I decided to use my violin talents to draw in a crowd, and earn some extra cash for street life. Immediately, I wandered over to a bench in Times Square, flicking the fake golden latches open to reveal a cherry wood violin. Plucking the strings and twisting the fine tuners, I managed to get the sound nearly perfect, and pulled out the bow. I twisted the small cap on the bottom(The frog) tightening it and applying rosin to ensure that the sound was fairly decent. Once prepared, I slumped into the bench, and began to glide the bow along the strings to my favorite song, 'Hey There Delilah' By the Plain White T's. A small crowd began to form, tossing in dimes, pennies, the occasional  quarter and singles, as well as paper with songs written on them. I wasn't familiar with some of these songs, so played what I knew. Recognizing some of the lyrics, I hummed along, enjoying the decent crowd.

~Unknown P.O.V.~
A familiar sound buzzed in my ears, the sound of an elegant violin. I couldn't help but to scurry over to the crowd, and see the most beautiful girl I had ever seen, humming and gently gliding the worn out bow along the strings. I stared in awe over the heads in front of me, lifting my sunglasses slightly to get a glimpse of her eyes more clearly. 'Oh, her eyes...' I thought, and took out my wallet. Not taking a glance at the bill, a 10 dollar bill fluttered into the case. She gave me a grateful smile as she turned from her instrument, continuing to play and glanced at me softly, but turned away and kept playing. God, I need to talk to her. I managed to walk to a bench and sit, watching her effortlessly strum the bow along the stings.

~Delilah's P.O.V.~
I watched as the guy gratefully put in the ten, and glanced up at him. He looked about my age, and wore a hoodie with sunglasses. 'Odd. Its cloudy out, why would he need sunglasses?'  My mind questioned and I finished the song 'Someone like you' by Adele from one of the requests, and packed up my violin. The crowd gradually left, leaving me and my stuff. I snagged the money out of the case, leaving me with fifteen dollars. "Enough for a small meal and water." I let myself mutter and took glance of a shadow towering over me. I took glance to see the guy from earlier, the one who put in the large amount of money. 
"Thanks for the ten, I really appreciate it," I fake smiled. I looked up at him, hiding my fear. New Yorkers weren't known for being nice too much.
"Welcome, you have an amazing talent," He stated and I felt my cheeks burn up, and grabbed my backpack and case.
"Thanks." I quickly said and began to walk away, and jumped feeling a hand on my shoulder.
"I didn't mean to scare you, I just wanted to know if I can have your number?" He asked, scratching his neck and looking me in the eye.
"No phone." I muttered and took a glance at flashing cameras, nearly blinded. And that was my cue to bolt out of there, so I did. 'God, what was up with that?' I thought and found a small T.V store, next to a alley where I could spend the night. Just then, one of the TV's flashed and screamed breaking news. Being curious, I went to investigate. "BREAKING NEWS!! TEEN POP SENSATION AUSTIN MAHONE SEEN WITH MYSTERY GIRL? SHE WAS SEEN LATER TODAY GOING INTO A ALLEY. DOES AUSTIN HAVE A CRUSH ON A HOMELESS GIRL?" The woman who was draped in a dress exclaimed, and the words 'EXTRA EXTRA' popped on the screen, and I rolled my eyes. "One day and i'm already on TV. This will be quite an experience." I muttered and crawled back to the alley entrance, using my violin case as a pillow, and drifted into a cold, dreamless sleep.
