................ I took a sip of the hot tea that the wardrobe
girl handed to me.
"How you doing?' I looked over my shoulder as Lukas walked into
the dressing room "Chris I need to talk to you" I smiled at the
wardrobe girl and walked out of the room past Lukas into the
hallway and turned to look at him as he pulled the door closed.
"Well I have less than five minutes till I go onstage" I wrapped
my hands round the cup as the distant noise of the waiting crowd
filtered back to us.
"I need to apologize about last night I was wrong" I leant
against the wall. "I honestly trust you, but with everything
that's gone on I'm wary of other people trying to mess things up
and with the way Kellan was messing when you called him yesterday
during the interview… well I don't know I think he still has a
thing for you"
"It's none of your business if he does" I shook my head "I'm the
one that will say no if he does say or do something he shouldn't
and frankly the likelihood of that happening is so remote I'd
have better look having a relationship with my fucking mother" he
raised his eye brows "You crossed the line Lukas You crossed it
with my husband and with one of my best friends… I wouldn't be so
pissed if Chad didn't know Kellan like he does "Hell do you even
I know who it was that basically pushed Chad and I together
"No" Lukas shook his head.
"Try calling Kellan and asking him what he told Chad when I went
to Vancouver" I walked away from him and pushed open the door to
my dressing room and the sanctuary of my band Heidi was sitting
on Alfie's lap while Miranda was talking to Kerion who was
waiting with the usual stick of gum for Pete to stop throwing up
in the bathroom.
"You got New FMB's Kerion laughed as he looked round"
"Yep" I nodded trying to calm down after talking to Lukas
"Two minutes guys start making your way to the stage" the stage
manager put his head round the door
'Please tell me the pink Mic is gone" I asked as Kerion banged on
the door for Pete handing him the gum as he finally came out
"All gone" He laughed holding out another new one this time with
black crystals and a cross in red and silver on it
"Sweet" I nodded handing it to Miranda while I put in my ear
pieces as headed out of the door I knocked on Nickelbacks door
"We're naked" I heard Dan's voice call out
"It's okay I've seen all your asses more than once in the last
four and a half months" I laughed
"Damn Nice new boots" Mike grinned "Hope to god they're scotch
guarded they'll stain" Chad looked at him
"That's why we use the leather ones not the suede" I tipped my
head to Mike "they wipe clean" Chad walked over to me and put his
hands on my hips.
"Lukas apologized to me before"
"I told him that he needs to stay out of my business and that he
needs to talk to Kellan to see who gave us the push to get
together" Chad smiled
"Yeah we do owe him that don't we" He pulled me to him "I love
"Love you too" he kissed me his hand ran over the tight black
shorts I had on
"I'm coming" I smiled at him and turned on the heel and walked
"How the hell do you not walk round permanently turned on" Ryan
"Dude" Chad looked at him
"No I mean Damn"
"Because she's my wife and we don't tend to go right to sleep
when we got to bed" Chad laughed
"You told Mom yet?" Mike looked at him
"No but I will" Chad sighed sitting back down……………..
The next few days Lukas apologized several more times and having
Miranda and Heidi around gave the guys endless hours of fun with
all the teasing they were doing. The girls were less intimidated
of them now and spoke to them like they'd known them forever.
"I'll be back later" I moaned as Chad kissed my neck
"I know but I don't think I've gone a day in the last four and a
half months where I haven't seen you for almost the entire day"
"Hey Blame Lukas for scheduling" I closed my eyes as he nibbled
my ear "Okay I'm going to have to sit on a flight for almost
three hours sexually frustrated Mr. Kroeger"
"Hey you're leaving me as well I'm going to need a cold shower
before I go do the press thing with the guys"
"Good" I smacked his ass "I'll see you tonight" He nodded his
finger tugging on my ring "I love you"
"Love you too baby" He leant on the door and watched me walk down
the hall to the waiting security guard who was coming with me
time to Go see Kellan……………
