………………… "Chris" a kiss was pressed to my lips "Sweetheart you
need to get up" I groaned and pulled the pillow over my head and
heard Chad start laughing
"If you tell me it's something like nine am I'm filing for
divorce" I grumbled
"Really Mrs. Kroeger" He pulled the pillow away from me "I'm not
going to let you" he smiled at me as he pinned me under the
covers and sat on me.
"OKAY if there's no coffee or heel strong black tea then I can
file for divorce under mental cruelty" I smiled at him "and what
time is it?"
"It a little after three thirty" he bent his head and kissed me
"Damn I think the sleeping pill is still kicking in" I put my
arms round his neck and pulled him down to me
"Well if you didn't spend the night in the bar" he chuckled
moving to the side and snuggling into me
"I had one drink because I couldn't sleep" I pouted "And I called
Xander and chewed him a new one… crap I need to talk to Lukas" I
"Lukas why?" Chad pulled me back to him
"I sorted out a ticket for Xander to come here on the afternoon
flight to pull his damn finger out of his ass and stop acting
like Dimitri did" I sighed
"What he's been screwing around" I looked at him and raised an
eyebrow "What isn't that what you wonderful Ex did?" I knew the
way Dimitri had been bugged the crap out of Chad.
"I meant he was trying to stop Miranda from doing this a job
because he though after being round all you guys and traveling
like we do she wouldn't want a college kid"
"He's in trouble, when he gets here for being an ass" I smiled
"and he admitted he loves her to me and I know she still loves
"You rock Mrs. K you know that"
"The world so I've been told" I laughed
"Way more than that" he got off the bed "Now I think we need to
shower and get down stairs all in the next twenty minutes"
"Like hell twenty minutes if we share the shower" I scoffed
getting out of bed
"I'll call Lukas and tell him to send the car back for us" Chad
smiled smacking my ass as I walked by him…..
………………… Corey got in the car with me as we headed to the airport
leaving the others behind with Nickelback doing some TV interview
while my guys tried to kill each other with rock band backstage
after we'd sound checked again. We walked into the arrivals halls
Corey almost like glue at my side as I heard my name several
times. A few people stopping me and asking for an autograph or to
have their picture taken with them.
"Chris" Corey Put his hand in the small of my back and pointed at
the arrivals board I nodded and went with him. "We should have
brought Danny as well" he groaned as more and more people
"You can do this Marine" I laughed at him "and Xander isn't a
"I get paid to protect you" Corey put on his serious tone.
"And he's my big cousin he looks out for me for free" I nudged
"And going to the bar alone last night" He folded his arms over
his chest "Chad wasn't happy and Lukas chewed my ass" I looked at
"It was three in the morning you and Danny were sleeping I wasn't
going to wake one of you up to go sit in the bar for twenty
minutes because I couldn't' sleep"
"You got hit on?"
"Yes I did" I nodded "I was okay I told him I wasn't Christine
Sommers" Corey raised his eye brows "I was Christine Kroeger" he
started to laugh "Admittedly his face was a real picture but Mike
and Dan were there by then and you think they'd let anything
"No I know they wouldn't" Corey shook his head. I looked up
"Okay but now you might need to stop the huge Gibbs slap that's
about to happen" He frowned at me. "XANDER" I called as Xander
walked out of the doors pulling his bag behind him. He smiled at
"Damn that's a long flight" he laughed as he put his arms round
me and picked me up hugging me.
'Yeah try doing it from Vancouver" I kissed his cheek. He put me
down "and by the way" I Gibbs slapped him "You're still an ass"
"Ow damn it" He rubbed the back of his head "And I know I'm an
ass that's why I'm here right?"
"Hell yeah" I nodded
"Chris we have to leave you need to get to the venue and we have
paparazzi issues" he nodded to where there were now a ton of
"Oh wonderful I'll be screwing you in the papers tomorrow" I
linked my arm with Xander
"Okay I think I just threw up in my mouth" Xander pulled a face
as Corey went into defense mode and hurried me back to the car
with shouts and flash bulbs going off
"Damn is it always like this?" Xander pulled a face as we drove
away from the curbside
"Yep" I nodded
"You'll see a lot of new things" I looked at him "I know you've
been with us for a few days before but with the schedule we have
you'll see the rock star life isn't as fun as you think"
"Does Miranda know I'm coming?"
"Nope she's working on my costume for tonight" I shook my head
"but as soon as she secured me into my outfit I've arranged for
you to go out for dinner together so you can either but on your
big girl panties and deal with the chance your girlfriend has or
you can break up and hop the next flight to the States"
"Damn who made you a tough ass?"
"My life" I chewed the inside of my cheek…………………
