Britney Spears – Take on me

A row of clear fluorescent lights were attached to the white ceiling but with no need to be activated. Across the right side of the room was a set of glass windows stretching across the entire wall, divided by four small pieces. The color of the room was white, all visible from the bright sunlight that lit up the room from outside. Beyond the glass was an ocean view as the building itself sat among the east side of South Beach. On the other side of the room was a makeup table and an open closet filled with various articles of clothing. Two chairs The building itself belonged to a production studio operating under the name of True Blue. It was a recent studio that had only popped up just three years ago after two previously smaller studios had merged together under a corporate buyout. None of this mattered to the man sitting alone in the room, patiently waiting for the moment when he was called in for his photo session.

Josh Anderson had only been under contract with True Blue for a few months so far into the year. Born in northern Florida, Josh had worked his way down to Miami after dropping out of college and gambling away his trust fund on a new career. He was pushed into an education for computer engineering but lacked the passion to pursue an extensive career. Through the luck of knowing a few people, Josh ended up in the modelling industry alongside two of his friends. One of them had an uncle who was an executive with the former studio that had merged into becoming True Blue. Sometime in college Josh became dedicated to working out, building up his body. He was short, standing at only five foot and seven inches in height, but he didn’t let it bother him. Over the next few years, he created a hobby out of working out and developing his muscles. His hair was short and black while his muscular body was always clean and shaved of the light hair he had already grown at twenty-five years of age. Despite this clean look, he liked to go a day without shaving his face. It was a suggestion from a photographer a few years ago when he had first began modelling. Such a tip of advice had become a staple to his physical image.

The computer nerd had changed his appearance entirely over a four year span, creating an image that suited a male model such as him. Beyond the brown hues of his eyes was a man who enjoyed a fun time at the expense of his modelling career. It was usually his job to put on expensive brand name clothing and take various photographs for what would be used in advertisements. The dress up game was something Josh enjoyed, keeping an album of his various photo shoots as a portfolio. His career was a luxury that led to him having enough money to live a quiet life in a South Beach penthouse suite. From time to time, the male models of True Blue had their opportunities to do a photo session with models of famous names who had approached the studio. Today was such a day, as Josh was on a short list of men who would have this chance with a special woman who was doing a photo shoot. Who she was remained a mystery at least for now. The door came swinging open as Josh was greeted to a man in a suit.

“Hey, you should go downstairs. I’m sure you don’t wanna miss who showed up today.”

It was Matthew calling out to him only temporarily before he hurried back outside. Matthew was another model working under contract at the studio. Judging by his choice of an outfit, Josh could only assume that he was called in for a photo session. It was a stark difference from how Josh was only dressed in a white T-shirt and a pair of gym shorts. He didn’t expect to be called into a photo shoot with how management had selected the other men. Hurrying out the door, Josh called out to the other man.

“You didn’t tell me who it is.”

With one hand on the metal railing to the staircase, Matthew turned around gazed back to Josh. Beyond his wavy blonde hair and green eyes was a face that didn’t show much amusement as he replied back to his friend.

“Britney Spears. Come on, she’s shooting downstairs with some big name photographer out of Italy. They’ve got a studio room all blocked off. Her security team’s all over the place.”

In a sudden halt, Josh’s lower lip fell as the name echoed throughout his mind. Matthew had already stomped his way down the stairs while Josh needed a few moments to catch his train of thought. Just hearing the name Britney Spears was a complete rush of many happy memories to Josh’s mind. A devoted fan to her music was only one thing he could claim. There were a number of fond memories he had from his youth when Britney was the first woman he had crushed on in his younger years. It didn’t matter to him that time passed on, she was still a goddess and forever would be within his view. He licked his lips before heading down the stairs, catching up with Matthew as he replied to him.

“Britney Spears is really here!?”

“Yeah, it’s her alright.”

Hurrying down the staircase side by side, Josh spoke again.

“Nah, you gotta be pulling some kinda joke on me, I’ve gotta see her for myself.”

Matthew laughed as they reached the bottom of the stairs.

“Why do you find this so hard to believe, man? She’s old and hasn’t had a hit in years. It makes sense for her to be with a studio like this and not some big time place.”

Josh froze almost as if he had been insulted by Matthew’s hard-hitting words.

“Old? She’s in her mid-thirties, that ain’t old. You make it sound like she’s ancient and no one cares anymore.”

Rolling his eyes, Matthew chuckled slightly.

“So? She isn’t ruling the charts like she was back in the day. I don’t find her to be as relevant today as you seem to believe.”

“It doesn’t matter. She’s still smoking hot and will always be a legend. The legendary Miss. Britney Spears, I think that’s a more fitting title.”

Letting out a sigh, Matthew thought to himself. It would be so easy for him to tease Josh over his instant reaction to this, but now wasn’t the time.

“Alright, come on man. You wanna see that it’s really her? Let’s go.”

Ever since the studio merger that had birthed True Blue, sometimes famed freelance photographers would negotiate to work with the company. They were usually requesting photo sessions for artistic purposes, sometimes involving famed models. Earlier in the year, Josh had heard rumors about two big name models showing up at the studio with a photographer demanding a specific style of photo session. Never in his wildest dreams did Josh believe that Britney Spears would show up at this place for a photo shoot. There were some truth to Matthew’s words, for this wouldn’t be a modelling shoot that would be gracing the cover of Rolling Stone magazine any time soon. To Josh, she would always be the ‘Pop Princess’ as she had been nicknamed, a token back to his youth when he fantasized over her. She had seen better days by this point in her music career, but still left behind a legacy that was to be respected. After walking through another hallway down they encountered two tall bodyguards to an open doorway. Matthew spoke up.

“Right in there. I’m pretty sure she’s too busy to sign an autograph or take a selfie with you.”

He smirked after his comment, just to see if he could provoke a reaction out of Josh. The other man refused the bait, as he simply walked through the doorway. There were a number of bodyguards, all dressed the same in double breasted black suits. Some of the men were dark skinned while others were white. Josh learned right away that Matthew wasn’t kidding about Britney’s security team. She had at least a dozen bodyguards in and out of the room, he could hardly guess how many bodyguards she had outside. Inside the session room was three large panels of a creamy, aged white color held up. A pattern on them revealed that this was something of a small bedroom while Britney herself sat on a bed wearing a black lingerie outfit. From beyond the main camera work station, Josh was able to witness Britney in person with his very own eyes.

Beyond the wavy golden hair was a face that Josh could always recognize with his eyes. Britney parted her lips, gritting her teeth as she gazed back into the camera. She sat on a bed in the middle of the set piece with a white blanket folded over her lap. Round shaped pearl rings hung from her ears while a small gold necklace was down below. She wore a black bra with small straps over both of her shoulders, allowing that heavy cleavage to hang. Josh couldn’t see what was the bottom piece of her outfit but for the time being, he embraced this moment of beauty from a distance. Britney had meant a great deal to Josh over the course of his life. He could never deny that she was the first woman he crushed on back in his teen years. The music video for ‘Toxic’ was something he had fond memories of. Lustful evenings were spent alone with a number of sexy photos of her, having obscene dreams within old rusty beds.

That was a lifetime ago of teenage innocent but it felt as if it were merely days ago as Josh was gazing back at the woman of his dreams. Nostalgic memories flooded into his thoughts. The photo shoot continued, as Britney got up and shifted around. The main photographer had everything set up for her to move and take alternate shots in different angles. She left the set once, only to go change into a new outfit. Josh couldn’t resist but to stand there and continue observing as time was simply passing by quicker than he realized. Time stood still in Josh’s mind, as he failed to realize that he had been standing idle on the set for a little over thirty minutes. While she was off the set, the photographer in charge turned around and gazed back at everyone standing before him. A white T-shirt hugged over his thin body. His curly hair was a color of dark brown, matching the beard he had over his face. He pointed his finger towards Josh and another man standing next to him.

“I need one of you on the set and both of you look ready. We need a man for the next few photos, so you fellas need to make your mind up quick. Whoever it’s gonna be, I need you shirtless in a pair of black shorts and bare foot. You’re just taking a few shots on the set with her. It’ll be over with in a matter of ten minutes, I don’t wanna wait around.”

From his words, Josh quickly realized that this was a golden opportunity for him to get on the set. He didn’t realize that Matthew was standing to the left of his body and perhaps the man was speaking to him instead. It didn’t matter to Josh, as he now had an opportunity that was one he only had dreamed of in life. To share a photo shoot with the one and only Britney Spears was something he could be proud of forever. It could be the one photo shoot in his portfolio he would always reminisce over. The two men looked at each other and Josh wasted no time with his demand.

“Let me do this. You gotta let me on the set with her.”

Matthew laughed.

“Dude, he clearly was pointing at me, not you.”

“I don’t care! You don’t even like her, so let me be the one. Come on, I’ve always wanted to meet Britney.”

Laughing again, Matthew couldn’t believe how determined Josh was to have this moment. He had to admire such a determination to get the spotlight for this woman. Thinking for a moment, he nodded his head before replying.

“Alright, man. I’ll let you be the one to do it, but you owe me for this. Don’t forget about that.”

“Thanks! You have no idea how much this means to me.”

Josh didn’t ponder thoughts on Matthew’s words. Whatever he owed him, he simply assumed that it would be a small favor down the road. None of it mattered as he was filled with excitement, prepared to embrace this moment of sharing a set piece with his dream woman. The photographer nodded to him, giving him the approval and then Josh made his way around the set going back to the changing rooms. He knew the layout of the building all too well from his time spent employed with True Blue. A door way across the room led to a small hallway where the changing section was. Two doors were down the hall with one closed. Josh knew Britney had to be in there, undoubtedly changing into a new outfit for the final part of the photo shoot. This was it, a moment that he would never forget in his life.

To stand face to face with Britney Spears and talk with her. Josh took a deep breath as he was already beginning to feel a nervous twitch aching through his body. Ignoring his emotional senses, Josh twisted his hand around the door knob for the changing room and stepped inside. He let out a second deep breath before moving around the room where a metal stand held a number of clothes of change into. Sitting above the makeup stand was a large mirror in which Josh looked over himself before stripping off his shirt. He glanced over his muscular chest completely clean of any small hairs as his strong abs were visible. Licking his lips, he felt more confident now and was freeing himself of the nervous pressure. He stripped down and then moved to the rack of clothes hanging among dozens of clothes hangers. Once Josh found the correct waist line size to fit over him. It took only a minute to get properly dressed and then Josh moved to the door again, twisting it open as he stepped out to be greeted by Britney herself.

“Hi there! So you’re gonna be on the set with me soon?”

There she stood in all of her glory. A woman that Josh could never resist going back to his youthful innocent. Britney stood in a pair of black pump heels. Every inch of her muscular toned legs were visible through a pair of black fishnet style lingerie stockings that traced up to her thighs. Above the stockings was a black thong, fitting over her curvy hips. Over her body was a fancy white fur coat. Her flat stomach was visible, showing off a cute silver belly button ring before his eyes traced up to a black push up bra covering her large breasts. Britney’s signature long blonde hair had been fixed up with a small wave beyond her shoulder, giving her a glamorous appearance of vintage Hollywood. The fancy dress up image was topped off with the color of ruby red for her lipstick. A diamond necklace hung below her neck. Josh was greeted with her radiant smile. It took him a moment to snap out of a starstruck moment to answer her back.

“Yeah, that’s me. My name is Josh by the way.”

“I’m Britney, but I think you already know that.”

She giggled after replying as a way to try and relieve his nervousness in front of her. Josh took a deep breath before smiling. His cheeks flushed into a red hue as it became an obvious sign that he was blushing.

“You’re beautiful Britney. I absolutely love the outfit you’ve got on.”

“Awwwww, thank you. You don’t look so bad yourself, Josh.”

She stepped in front of him, but not before glancing over her shoulder and offering a small wink. Josh couldn’t help but smile back to her. Now he was truly self assured that there wouldn’t be anymore uneasy feelings about this photo session. He had met Britney and spoken to her for a few seconds, but to hear her call out his name sent a rush of excitement and relief. He followed her from the changing room back to the set piece. Behind both of them was the bed set piece. The sheets were of an aged white creamy looking color. The main photographer in charge nodded his head once they were back on the set before speaking.

“Alright, looks like we’re good to go. Britney, go ahead and instruct him where you want him to pose with you.”

Judging the words spoken, Josh had clearly learned that Britney was the one in charge of this photo session. This photographer may have been big time, but it was all her show. Usually the models who came in for True Blue didn’t end up having creative freedom, but Britney was on a different level of power and name. Without replying back to the photographer, Britney turned to look at Josh before she took a glance towards the bed from behind.

“I need you to climb on the bed and lay down, but you’ve gotta be starring at my back while I stand in front of you. You can do that, right?”

Josh nodded his head before following her instructions. Moving onto the bed, he allowed his feet to dangle off the left side while he moved into a position where he could rest his chin in his left hand. His body was arched over the bed in a stance while Britney moved to the left side. She smiled back at him, giving him a thumbs up.

“That’s perfect! Stay right there for me.”

Spreading her legs out a bit, Britney planted her hands on her hips and offered up a sultry grin in front of the camera. Her perfect pearly white teeth flashed while the diamond necklace below was sparkling from the ample lighting the room offered. The man standing before the camera glanced into the large work station piece and then Josh’s fixated his eyes to Britney’s back side. A series of bright flashes began to flicker as the photos were snapped. Josh didn’t flinch, as he had become acclimated with such things with his modelling career. At least ten images were created from the same pose before Britney stepped away. Turning around she gazed at Josh over the bed while pulling the fur coat from her voluptuous figure before him.

“I need you to sit up for me, Josh. I’m gonna be joining you now for a different position.”

Unable to prevent his wandering gaze, Josh raised his eyebrows as he looked over Britney’s beautiful thick body standing before him in nothing but a black thong and bra with lingerie stockings over her legs. Her tight fit body was almost in complete display before his eyes. The starstruck expression across his face just made Britney smile. She was used to men reacting like this when they had first witnessed her body in front of them with their own eyes. Josh sat up, moving so his feet were now hanging off the edge of the bed. Britney sat next to him, brushing her shoulder against his. As he inhaled the strong scent of her perfume, she spoke to him again.

“I’m gonna lean back just a little bit. I need you to get up and move behind me. Make it like you’re crawling from the front of the bed. Put one of your hands over my shoulder and move your face around my neck, sorta like the cover of a romance novel. Can you do that for me, Josh?”

Like before, he nodded his head to her.

“Yes, just give me a sec.”

Never did Josh consider the possibility that he would be touching her skin. He climbed back from the bed, moving into the position as Britney had instructed for him. His knees sank down into the mattress cushion while Britney leaned back with both of her palms sinking down into the bed sheets. It took a few more seconds for Josh to crawl a bit on the bed and then move into the desired position. Britney soon felt his left hand over her left shoulder. He could feel the warmness of her skin from beneath his fingertips. Josh took a deep breath, silently fighting off the goosebumps of nervous thoughts attempting to sneak back into his mind.

“You can wrap your other arm around my stomach if you want. Might make this pose a little easier.”

Britney’s words caught him by surprise. It was almost as if she could sense that he wanted a little more. Josh licked his lips and then edged his right arm to wrap around her stomach. He leaned up a little bit while Britney moved back her. Her long golden hair was overflying beyond his left arm while he planted his head to the right side of her neck. This time around, he was able to inhale the full scent of her intoxicating sensual perfume. The aura filled his nostrils quietly while he brushed his lips over her neck.

“Close your eyes for me.”

Her voice was quiet with an almost intimate whisper. Josh shut his eyes as Britney commanded and then he felt her warm hand resting over his right arm. Her big brown eyes gazed up into the camera as she dropped her lower lip, gritting her teeth together. It was a classic posture of desire, one that she was known for in previous photo shoots from years ago. Josh could hear the machine moving as bright flashes soon lit up the small set piece. Britney held her pose while the snapshots were created. A few seconds later, Britney began to move. It was the one alert that quietly informed Josh that were done with this position.

“These pictures look excellent so far. Britney, you wanna come have a look at them?”

“Sure thing!”

She got up from the bed, leaving Josh there all by himself to listen at the sound of her heels stomping and booming over the floor as Britney hurried back to the photographer. When Josh reopened his eyes, it was similar to waking up from a wonderful dream. He let out a quiet sigh and then smiled to himself before rising up. Josh figured the photo session was completely now. Getting up from the bed, he turned around and began to walk off.

“Hey Josh! You did great! I think you’ll love how these have turned out.”

It was Britney calling out to him. He turned to look at her beautiful smile as she gave him a thumbs up with her right hand. Josh grinned back and returned the thumbs up sign to her. As he began to walk away back to the dressing room, he kept thinking over just what he had accomplished in today’s work. A dream had come true as he had shared a photo session with a woman he had lusted over going back to his youth. Before walking back to the changing room, Josh couldn’t stop himself from turning around to see what Britney was occupied with. To his surprise, she had stepped away from the camera work station and was now headed towards his direction. Those high heels stomped and boomed over the floor just like before. All Josh could do was smile as they were both headed to the changing rooms together now. Britney spoke up to him as she caught up with his pace.

“Did you have fun shooting with me? I don’t think I’ve worked with anymore excited than you in a few years now.”

Josh completely stopped walking and turned around to smile back at Britney.

“Oh my god, you just don’t know. I’m a huge fan, have been for a long time.”

“I can tell!”

“It was a dream come true to do something like this. When I was told that Britney Spears was here in the building, I didn’t believe it. I had to come out and see for myself.”

Britney giggled at his words, placing her hands on her hips while his eyes moved over her voluptuous body. Her eyes followed his face, as she almost seemed to predict that Josh would survey over her body with wandering eyes. He wasn’t unlike other men she had seen in the past, for his attraction to her was hard to ignore.

“Well, it was a good thing you did come out and see. I’m glad that I could make someone’s dream come true today.”

Josh starred his eyes into her heavy cleavage only for a few seconds before looking back into her beautiful face. It didn’t matter to him that Britney was older from what he remembered. She was a goddess to him and nothing was going to change that. He stumbled his thoughts, unable to say another word. Britney couldn’t help but tease him now as she realized such a golden opportunity to do so.

“You really like my bra huh, Josh?”

“Huh? Oh damn, sorry I was looking. I know that’s kinda rude of me.”

She laughed at his reaction while watching his cheeks turn red. Josh couldn’t hide his blushing, just as she had witnessed before.

“I understand, you think I’m hot, it’s okay. I could stand here all day and look at those muscles on you. I like a nice strong man.”

Giving him a wink, Britney studied his reaction. Josh just smirked, unable to come up with a reply to match her. He didn’t expect to have Britney flirting with him like this as a surprise. She spoke again once she figured he wasn’t going to say anything back.

“How about we meet up in an hour after we get changed? That’s if you aren’t doing anything for the rest of the day. I wouldn’t mind getting to know you better, Josh.”

A smile slowly formed over his face. Could this day possibly get any better? Josh had already achieved something that dreams were made of, but to spend more time with Britney was enough to turn this day into something of a fantasy coming true.

“I’d give anything to spend more time with you. There ain’t no way in hell I would turn down this chance.”

“Great! Let’s both get changed and give me an hour to settle things with my schedule and I’ll have one of my bodyguards drive you over to my hotel. We can call this a little date between one of my loyal fans and me.”

With her words spoken, Britney winked at him before hurrying into the changing room and leaving Josh standing there for a moment to take in the sudden plans for the rest of his day. It was merely a coincidence that he had met her today but now he was having what she called ‘a little date’ back at her place. When Josh finally pulled at the metal knob for the changing door, he grinned to himself. This was going to be a day that he would never forget for as long as he lived. All he had to do was make a quick change of clothes, go back upstairs and grab his belongings and then he would be ready to leave. Thankfully it was almost time to clock out at the studio anyway, but that didn’t bother Josh. He would’ve gladly walked off from any job to go off with Britney somewhere, even if it meant the consequence of losing a hard day’s pay.

******************

3 HOURS LATER

The Fontainebleau hotel was often considered the peak of luxury when it came to Miami Beach hotels. As a Miami landmark, it sat in the heart of what was known as Millionaire’s Row on Collins Avenue. Josh had passed by it several times when driving along through Miami Beach but had never considered staying in one of the suite’s before. The hotel in which he had penthouse residency was located south, closer to the ocean view with the Art Deco themed hotels that were often flanked with tourists who had deep enough pockets to enjoy the night life that Miami offered. Britney had the kind of wealth to avoid such a thing and go for the biggest and best hotel suite that money could buy. This was a trip that Josh never could’ve imagined in his wildest dreams to witness the extravagance of such a fine place with a beautiful woman.

Josh had left the True Blue building after changing into his casual clothes and gathering up his small bag of belongings he brought to work daily. Among the bag was his old iPod Classic and a purple pair of big muff headphones. He enjoyed putting on music when he worked out or was alone on lunch break. A good track list with a number of eighties synth pop hits and club music was just enough to get the blood pumping and adrenaline rush for pumping iron or running the treadmill. His iPod had been turned off for the past several hours, stopped on a song by Norwegian New Wave band A-ha. ‘Take On Me’ was the title of a tune that Josh couldn’t get out of his mind. ‘Slowly learning that life is okay. Say after me, it’s no better to be safe than sorry’. The lyrics flowed through his mind while sitting down to enjoy a late lunch across from Britney. Little did he know that there was a unique reason Britney had invited him on a little date back to her hotel. The time spent between them having conversations together was a simple section of a quiet test.
