................. I followed her outside taking my coffee with me
in case I needed to throw something over her if she went off on
me for leading Chad astray… no wait hang on I don't think it's
actually possible to lead him astray and after the dessert last
night and the… er… new… dirty mind blowing… really hot sex in the
shower… I saw a hand wave in front of my face and I jumped a
"Okay normally a smile like that means something naughty" I felt
the color rise in my cheeks "And if it has anything to do with
wither of my boys" she sighed and sat down "So I want to know
where my Son found you?"
"Singing on a stage in Tampa" I pulled out another chair and sat
opposite her "I'd moved from Wisconsin with my family and I'd
been recommended by my old Drama teacher to the new one at the
high school and he plled me in to audition and he put me with
three guys and we hit it off and to cut a long story short and
skip some drama" I smiled a little "We were playing in the Arena
where Nickelback was playing the following day and we didn't know
but the band was watching us"
"He get you in bed that night?" I looked at her and pushed my
tongue in my cheek.
"I had a boyfriend I don't play like that and No Chad was a
gentleman and gave me some advice" My tone was hard edged.
"I had to ask" she smiled coyly "So how do you go from playing a
charity event to touring with the boys?"
"Sheer luck" I shrugged "They asked us to join then for a month
and two weeks into that month it was extended for the entire
"What about these pictures" she thumbed through the magazine she
still had with her and threw it across the table to me "You and
that guy look a little more than just "friend"" she actually made
the air quotes
"We were and Chad knows all about it" I smiled at the last
picture that Kellan and I had taken for the ad campaign. Damn it
had to be the best out of the three shoots he looked so pissed in
it with his hand round my neck.
"Your face gives away your emotions Christine" I looked at her
"Really why what are you thinking they're saying?" this woman was
so hot and cold it was insane
"That you and he have something" she taped Kellan on the picture
"We do" She leant forward and put her chin on her hands "I count
him as one of my best friends and so does your son" I chewed the
inside of my cheek "Look if you're trying to work out if I'm some
groupie, or some gold digger that's only after Chad for one thing
then you're barking up the wrong tree… You can't judge me by
firing questions at me that you think will trip me up"
'I'm trying to work out what a 19 year old girl sees in Chad
other than the rock star lifestyle" I started to laugh
"Seriously you've said it yourself I'm on tour with Nickelback.
Never West have had #1 records in multiple countries and album
that has hit Platinum so many times there's a shortage of the
metal" I shook my head "Yes I don't have near Chad's Bank roll
and I don't have access to it, but I don't want or need it
either… I work damn hard as well as the rest of my band to make
the money we make. There are things going on that very few people
know about and that's the way it's going to stay for now and
those things are part of the reason I fell in love with the man I
fell in love with, I turned the magazine round and pushed it back
to her "How hot is he…? How built and good looking is Kellan?"
she looked at me "Come on tell me what you would do to him if you
were my age and you were face to face with him"
"He's vextremly good looking" she admitted getting a twinkle in
her eye "Damn that make them fine these days"
"I gave him up for Chad" she looked at me "I was seeing Kellan…
Hell you want the dirt I was banging the ass off of him" She
looked a little annoyed now "I trust him he's one of the handful
of people I trust in the world but I trusted Chad with more… I
fell in love with Chad before I even knew it myself, He knows
everything about me and I mean everything… Kellan is the reason
we're together he was the one that pointed out to your son that
he should be with me because everyone else could see how Chad was
round me" she started to smile
"We'll at least this time his found a girl with some backbone…
Mari was sweet but sometimes I had a feeling too sweet" I looked
at her "So you are in love with Chad"
"More than I ever thought possible" I smiled "I'd be with him if
the fame dries up and we're nobodies… he's my everything"
"As long as my Boys are happy then I'm okay with it… I'm sorry I
barged in on the two of you" I felt my cheeks turn pink "but even
though they are the ages they are I'm still their Mom and will
protect them till the day I die… you'll understand when you have
kids" there was that issue again I looked down "I know what
Chad's always said about being a Dad because his sucked he things
he might be the same but Chad has a lot of good things in him
that his father didn't and hell if Micheal can be the awesome Dad
that he is I know Chad will be as well…" she seemed to trail off
"But then I guess you guys are a couple of years of thinking
about kids… So how's your family handling you marrying a rock
I fought to control my emotions
"My little sister got mad but then Chad promised her that she can
be a bridesmaid when we get married all over again with everyone
there this time… My cousin tore me a new one and made both of us
cry before being okay wit it and my Aunt and Uncle were actually
pretty cool about it"
"What about your parents?" she narrowed her eyes at me
"We don't talk… they aren't very nice people" roller coaster of
emotions going on here right now "another one of the issues
Chad's helped me with" I ran my fingers through my hair.
"Well Sweetheart" I smiled at the word that Chad used a lot for
me "I know I don't know about you but I can see you've not had
things your way often till now" I shrugged "If Chad married you
within a few months of meeting you then he sees something in you
other than the obvious by looking at you" She reached across the
table and put her hand over mine "If he pisses you off tell me
and I'll Gibbs slap him for you" She winked at me before leaning
back in her chair. "And Chad you and Micheal can stop hiding
round the corner like you used to when you were kids
eavesdropping" she looked over her shoulder "Come on" Chad and
Mike walked round from behind the wall she looked back at me
"they grow older but they never change"…………………
