………………… “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 sat up
“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 him so...”
“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 recognized me.
“You can do this Marine” I laughed at him “and Xander isn’t a small guy”
“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 Corey
“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 him
“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 happen?”
“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 me
“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 camera flashing.
“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…………………
