.................. Chad sat on the chair while the doctor checked
"Can we leave the hotel?" I asked looking at the doctor
"I'd rather you stayed here and stayed in bed for a while you're
burning out Chris" he smiled at me, he looked round at Chad
"The guys had an interview this morning so he's with them"
"If you don't' want to replace your support band then I'd make
damn sure you get at least a week off… I know it cost a boat load
of money but it's either that or Chris ends up in hospital"
"We've already cancelled next week's Brazil gigs we've got 10
days till the next one" Chad got up and walked over "But we think
New York is way too stressful"
"I agree" the doctor nodded "but where ever you go after what the
two of you announced last night you're going to attract
attention" I looked at Chad and cocked my head
"I know" he smiled at me "How about if we get a plane home we can
relax in the house?"
"We need to talk to Jess" I suddenly remembered "Shit" I
scrabbled off the bed and reached for my phone.
"Chris" Chad caught me round the waist.
"It's going to be everywhere" I felt sick. My parents had
literally abandoned my little sister and she was adopted by my
Aunt and Uncle while I was touring. The one thing I wanted to
tell her the one huge thing I needed to tell her was probably now
on every Magazine, newspaper and Entertainment site in the
"We can go there first I'll get a plane" I tipped my head and
looked at him
"Isn't that what you used to do with Mari?"
"Below the belt baby" he shook his head "and I'm doing it because
I don't think we need to be on a commercial flight today" the
doctor was watching us
"Okay I'll give you the okay to leave here but you have to
promise me that where ever it is you go you'll do nothing"
"Nothing?" Chad and I pulled a face and looked at the doctor
'Oh god" the doctor groaned "Okay don't do anything to stress you
out you can be the normal married couple if you two can be
considered normal" he chuckled "just don't get pregnant before
the end of the tour" I saw Chad's eyes flick to me and then away
the doctor walked to the door, Chad followed him. "Chad I'm
serious about making her rest"
"I know and I'll make sure she does" Chad nodded "We'll go to
Florida and then we're heading back to Canada" the doctor nodded
and pulled open the door to the hallway
"And please I know I don't prescribe any form of birth control
for Chris but she can't get pregnant in the state she's in right
now" He had pulled Chad into the hallway "Her body and mind
couldn't handle it with the stress of everything that's going on"
"She won't get pregnant Doc" Chad pushed his hands into his
pockets and leant on the door frame
"We'll as long as you're taking care of being safe…"
"Doc she can't have baby" Chad stopped him
"What? Since when?"
"I guess she should have told you or you should have known… but
it was a while ago and she miscarried a baby after getting the
crap knocked out of her and she had a partial hysterectomy" Chad
pinched the bridge of his nose
"She's only 19"
"I know but she also doesn't want everyone and their grandmother
knowing about it" the doctor nodded "So the baby thing isn't an
issue but I will make sure she rests"
"Okay" the doctor nodded. "I'm sorry about the baby thing"
"It's not really an Issue right now" Chad swallowed and reached
for the door handle. Chad watched as he walked away down the hall
before coming back into the room I was half dressed and pulling a
brush through my hair.
…….. "You're eager to get away aren't you?" Chad smiled as his
hands slid round my waist.
"I want to get away to Jess and tell her about us" I stopped
packing and turned in his arms resting my hands against his
shoulders "She's going to hate the fact I got married and she
wasn't there but if she's heard about it from school or from a
friend or the TV" Chad kissed me in the way he does to make my
mind go blank, the tender rub of his thumbs on the sides of my
neck and the taste of him that always left me wanting more. He
pulled back and smiled at me "That was mean" I sighed resting my
head against his chest
"I know but it calmed you down" He chuckled. "We have Corey and
another former Marine frined of his coming with us… it might make
you feel a little safer"
"Even a USO tour would be good right now, I'd feel a whole lot
safer there" He smiled at me
"Why because of all the hot Marines round you?" he poked his
tongue into his cheek
"Hell no I mean being in the middle of a warzone doesn't scare me
like the thought of Arron being out of jail" I tried to force a
smile but I could feel my lips quiver
"Aw sweetheart" Chad pulled me to him wrapping his arms round me
"It's not fair this guy is ruling my life at a time when I should
be happy as anything" I looked at him "I'm in love with you, I'm
part of a rock band touring the world and this fucked up son of a
bitch I went to school with has this hold on me" Chad moved his
arms and held my face
"There's a huge difference these days" he tipped his head to the
side "You're a lot hard to get at, you have 24 hour protection
and you still have another 7 months to tour the world"
"I know I'm just…" I was cut off by another kiss my mind turing
to mush again as his hand held the back of my neck while the
other trailed up and down my spine I pushed myself into him a
moan coming from one of us, or both of us, the door knocked Chad
groaned and moved back and looked at me.
"I love you okay and I will do everything to get him put back
where he belongs" all I could do was nod "any chance you could
get the door I thing I need to go take a moment" he chuckled
looking downwards"Damn I have a sexy wife" he pecked my lips as
the door knocked again.
"I'm coming" I called out as Chad walked into the bathroom. I
grabbed my top from the end of the bed and pulled it on and
opened the door.
"Hey" Pete was standing there "want to go and get some coffee"
"Why?" I walked over to the couch and put on my boots
"The guys want to make sure you're okay" He looked at me
"I'm… struggling but I'm going to be okay" I chewed the inside of
my lip as I heard the shower start to run
"Well come and see them"
"Sure" I walked over to the bathroom and walked in as Chad was
about to step into the shower
"You coming to join me" he smiled
"No I'm going to grab a coffee with Pete the guys are all worried
"Okay baby" he nodded "just please don't leave the hotel without
"You think they'd let me" I smiled
"No but saying it makes me feel a little better" he stepped into
the stream of water damn he was hot. I shook my head and walked
back out to Pete. We rode down in the elevator to the restaurant
together in the hote. The guys had already got a breakfast poker
game going on. I walked over to them.
"Hey sis" Mike grinned at me as I rested my hands on Kerions
"How you doing?" Ryan looked at me
"I'm managing" I sighed "I'm sorry you guys"
"Okay you want a slap" Dan said turning in his seat to look at me
"Family sticks together and considering you're everyone's little
sister… well apart from Chad" he laughed "We have your back no
matter what so stop saying sorry"
"Okay" I held up my hands "We're going home for a few days"
"Good we get to go home for a few days as well" Kerion laughed
"Yeah we'll bring pictures of a fat looking Reba" Pete smirked
"If you don't see here when you'r in Tampa
"Gee thanks" I chewed the inside of my lip "And we're not
planning on being there for that long"
"I think we can cope with out the two of you for a few Days get
him to call Mom though" Mike smiled at me "Then off to Brazil and
I doubt if that douche would follow you there"
"Well lets hope not"………………
