……….. I watched as she looked round looking like she was looking for someone. Her family was round her talking up a storm but she seemed distracted. I looked at Danny his eyes were misted over I snapped a picture with my phone.
“I have something in my eye” he rubbed his eyes with his hands
‘Bullshit do you” Alfie laughed throwing his arm round Danny’s shoulders
“Okay I remember what it was like to come home to the people we loved” Danny smiled shaking his head “I hope to god he’s prepared for dating a marine”
“I hope to god she’s prepared for dating him” I grinned
“Well I hope that he’s found her tonsils because he’s sure fishing for them” Pete nudged me
“OMG get a damn room will you” Alfie called over making people looked round
“OH way to draw attention to us dumb ass” Danny shook his head “you’re going to be signing autographs till a week on Tuesday”
“Well another day in the office then” I hip checked him walking forward and heading toward Kerion whose girl and her family were all standing open mouthed “Excuse us” I smiled at her “Alfie’s mouth is rather like a runaway train sometimes sorry if we embarrassed you” Her jaw went slack as a guy behind her was tugging on her uniform and whispering in her ear.
‘Yeah sorry about that but blame him for bringing up” Alfie pointed to A beet red Kerion
“Yeah Kerion made us all come even though we told him you’d hate to be surrounded by his friends” Pete smiled
“KERION?” she cocked her head I pulled Kerions cap off of his head “OH MY GOD YOU’RE KERION MICHEALS” Her hand went to her mouth
“Yep” he fidgeted as my cell phone rang “I’m sorry”

Kerion hung his head and held out his hand for my phone, he looked at Page
“Excuse me for one minute” she nodded her face still in a state of shock
Kerion * seriously guys
Chad * sorry dude, but we’re all bored as hell waiting for yet another interview and well we want to know how hot this nurse is.
Kerion Looked at me and rolled his eyes

Me * I love you too and those days can’t go fast enough
I held the phone and took a deep breath as I hung up.
“You okay?” Alfie put his arm round my shoulder
“Fine I miss him” I looked at Him and laid my head on his shoulder. Oh and we have an interview at some point in the next day”
“Chad was reading and e-mail Lukas was showing him”
‘What about those two” Alfie nodded in Kerions direction
“I say you, me and Pete take the interview and let Kerion Get some action for once” I smiled “and see if he actually has the balls to ask Page to spend the next three weeks on the road with him”. Alfie and I walked back over to the others and started to sign autographs for people who came up to ask…………………….
