……………. Okay I had to admit that I was thankful for having the
bodyguard with me there were easily twice as many people outside
of the hotel as there had been the first day we arrived in
Sydney, The airport wasn't a whole lot better when people
recognized me I had to keep stopping and signing autographs and
having my picture taken with them.
"Chris" Corey put his hand on my back. I was glad that Lukas had
offered Corey job as head of our Security after I'd met him when
I was in Vancouver and he came shopping with me. I went with him
as we walked to the gate for the plane.
"Miss Sommers we're ready for you to board" the overly smiley
Steward at the gate beamed at me "And I have to say I'm a huge
fan and so is my boyfriend"
"Thank you" I smiled back I swear to god my face was hurting like
a bitch from all the smiling I was doing.
"You look like you need a drink" Corey laughed as we sat down
"Hell yes and we've only been back on the road for 5 days" I
rubbed my neck "So did you hear the Kerions got himself a Marine
"He was talking to me about it last night" Corey nodded "I've
offered to go back with him as he security when he heads to
Lejeune" I wrinkled my nose at him, he started to laugh
"Okay for those of us that don't speak Marine?"
"Camp Lejeune it's the Marine Corps Base in North Carolina where
she's based" He explained "It used to be home for me for a while"
"You still miss it?" It was good not having a conversation where
I had to think twice before saying things.
"Once a Marine always a Marine"
"Corey that's your stock answer to everything" I groaned
"Yes I still miss being a Marine" He nodded "But now I get to
travel the world and not get shot at and I sleep in hotels not in
Tents and bunks with 15 other guys" He laughed "Believe me this
job has it's perks"
"What babysitting two rock bands with some of the biggest diva's
"Yeah Alfie's a Bitch" he nodded trying to keep a serious face "I
mean did you see him lose it when he couldn't' find his eyeliner
the night before last?" He looked at me as the plane lifted off
the ground. The conversation was easy and relaxed but you could
see in the way that Corey sat and looked round him watching
people he was working.
We got through the airport the other side with the help of the
police there. Looks like someone had told them we were coming. We
were driven to a gated house at the end of a long drive that over
looked the beach.
"See I told you this job has perks" Corey Grinned as he got out
the car and waited for me to get out "I get top come to places
"Christine Sweetheart" Damian swept over to me and air kissed me
"How hot Is it?" He pulled a lace fan from the pocket of this
pants and fanned himself dramatically with it 'I'm sweating and
it's so unattractive"
"Dude so are we" Corey puffed Damian looked Corey up and down and
then looked at me
"Okay so where did you picl up the man mountain"
"He's my body guard" I rolled my eyes "Corey Damian. Damian
Corey" I introduced them
"Well Damn it's getting hotter round here" Damian giggled blushed
and hid behind the fan. "Kellan showed up about twenty minutes
ago and is already doing laps in the pool even thought I told him
NO" Damian tried to tear his eyes from Corey and failed "Any
chances he's?" he managed to look at me for a second before
looking back to Corey
"None" I laughed as we walked up the steps of the house. People
were milling round setting things up, How the hell the pictures
end up looking so hot I'll never figure it out because there are
so many people stood round watching.
"Smiling to yourself like that can't be good" Julia grinned at me
before she hugged em "You wait till you see the stuff today"
"Hi to you as well"
"Sorry, you want a drink or anything?"
"No I'm good" I shook my head
"Well you need to get into makeup and hair and get into or out of
you things" She gabbled "No Lukas today" she paused and looked at
me "or Chad?"
"No all the guys are busy doing a hundred and one other things so
you just get me" I followed her into the kitchen of the house
that was now set up to resemble a hair salon. "Hey can I get a
minute to go see Kellan?"
"Sure" She got a wry smirk on her face
"Oh don't even go there" I shook my head at her and walked out of
the open glass doors onto the deck round the pool People were
standing round watching as Kellan powered through t the water.
"Damn that what dreams are made of" One of the girls there sighed
"Hell Yeah" The girl next to her nodded. I walked over to the
side of the pool as he reached the end of it and took a breath.
He wiped the water off his face
"About time you got here" He looked at me
"Sorry I didn't know it was a race, and what is it with people
here and just saying hi?" I held out my hands as he hauled
himself out of the water he took the towel I held out to him and
grinned "Oh don't you even think of hugging me right now I have a
Marine here watching my back"
"I can handle Marines" he dropped the towel and hugged me
"Oh My God you're wet" I laughed
"It happens when you swim Chris It's sort of something to do with
the water" He roared with laughter before dropping a kiss on me
head "So where's Chad?" He grinned but keeping his voice down……..
