***I know it's short but these are acually hard to write with out sitting for an hour thinking about it so bear with me guys***
…………… "I haven't lied to you" He took a deep breath "I promise you I've not lied… I didn't tell you she wanted to meet because I didn't want you worrying and stressing about it, Chris the meeting was about what she wants to be paid for being my ex… how much more she thinks she's entitled to" he pinched the bridge of his nose "I hated the way you had to deal with this the last time" he looked at me "Hell Chris you laid her out"
"And you don't think I'd do it again in a fucking heart beat" I moaned "Do you think so fucking little of me and what I can handle that you decide what to tell me… You want me to keep quiet if Dimitri calls or gets in touch" I watched the nerve twitch in his cheeks "I thought not" I shook my head "So what is it then do as I say not as I do because that really aint' going to work" I slammed my hands on the counter "I'm not a fucking kid Chad… I've seen more and been through more than most people your Mothers age" I got off the stool and paced the floor "You told me you understood that… Has the novelty worn off taking me out, being with me, and taking me to bed…? Am I one to put down to experience another notch in the might Chad Kroeger's headboard and ego?" Okay the anger was starting to get the better of me now "Was I the girl that was the challenge for you? Did you need to get a younger girl into your bed to make you feel on you'd still got it" The look of horror that flashed over his face made me want to break down "Balls in your court Chad I know who and what I want… Do you?" I pushed away from the counter and walked by him out by the pool before I really said too much, I felt cold even in the heat of the summer sun, I wrapped my arms round myself and tipped back my face to the sun, Hoping it would stop the tears from falling down my cheeks, but it didn't… I might have pushed him that bit too far letting fly at him like I just had. I heard the door open behind me.
"Chris" I looked over my shoulder at him "Will you listen to me and let me talk…? Please" his voice was gentle and soft "Come back inside" He held the door open and waited for me. I wiped the tears from my face and walked back into the house, the smell of him tugging at my heart. He put his hand in the small of my back as we went into the living room. I sat on the couch and reached for the throw that was on the back of it and wrapped it round myself. "I hope to god you take this and know I mean it" he sat on the table in front of me "Marianne, wants to fuck with me" I raised my eyebrows "You know what I mean, she found out without me bankroll her life wasn't what she'd got used to, you know she was getting ten grand a month" he didn't give me time to answer before he carried on "It's now gone up to twenty five thousand and she's been given the house in Mexico… and that's ticked me the hell off because I never got to take you to the place I love" He rubbed his hands on his jeans. "It's not that I don't think you can handle it but I'm supposed to protect you and take all the crap I can from you, and she's a bitch you were right about that" He chewed his bottom lip "I knew she was a bitch at least eighteen months before she left me and I was told it by everyone, but I'm a stubborn son of a bitch and I don't like being told what to do, you know that, and I held onto her even though we were a hot mess together because I was scared" he put his elbows on his knees "I'd gotten into this long assed relationship that was going bad and I didn't' like the thought of not having someone… I'm meaning someone that's there not just in bed with you… so I let it ride until she walked out on me… I went off you know I did I was partying and out every night so I didn't need to come home to nothing and no one other than Bruce" the vulnerability in his face was something I'd never truly seen in him before. He sighed " I need a drink" he swallowed hard and walked into the kitchen I got off the couch and followed him as he pulled the bottle of Jaeger from the freezer and two shot glasses from the cup board and poured each of us a drink………….
