*** Okay I’m out for Christmas guys I’ll try to get one up at some point but I can’t promise***
............ I dried and slipped into the dress that Elena had left for me I walked out and got whistled.
“Nice dress” Pete smiled
“Thanks” I tried not to let my voice crack. “I’m going to get my hair and makeup done” I threw Alfie my phone “Oh I made up my mind I don’t think Dimi will want to be bothered by me take a look at the last message” I walked out my heart pounding the sound of the crowd dying down as the show had ended I could hear the band laughing as I sat down for the Makeup girl to work her magic Alfie walked in.
“You doing okay?”
“I’m fine I think I just found where I stand” I looked at him through the mirror as my hair was straightened within an inch of its life “I was stupid to think anything different but after what Arron did I just…”
“Hey its okay we’re here if you need a hug”
“I know and I love you guys” I took a deep breath as stood up and hugged the makeup girl “Thank you Sheryl”
‘You’re welcome and if this is over a guy you go out there tonight and blow it out” she high fived me Alfie put his arm round me as we walked back to the others.
“I had to take his phone away he wanted to call Dimitri and yell at him” Pete smiled as I slipped into the shoes and put my phone into my clutch.
“Are you guys coming or not” Ryan walked in “We’re heading to a club”
“Well I’m not dressed like this to go to bed” I smiled brushing off as best as I could the image in my head. I walked out of the room and into the back of the arena where a limo was waiting the driver opened the door I slid in.
“And here was us thinking you’d be pout in the stuff you wore on stage” Chad laughed as Mike popped the top off of a champagne and poured us all glasses
“18’s the drinking age here” he smiled
“Good I think I just found out why people say they need a drink” I moved over as the others got in as well as Lukas “Great the thorn in my side” I muttered making Pete snort champagne down his nose
“Damn that burns” he choked
“Okay dude we know you’re not used to drinking but the point is you swallow” Dan banged him on the back my cell started to ring my guys looked at me.
“Is it” Kerion almost growled I looked at the number and shook my head

Jess * Oh they’re going to… but you’ll be home soon won’t you

Her voice breaking up made me catch my breath

Jess * I know but I miss you

Jess * he said he’ll call you later
Me * tell him not to bother I got the picture
Jess * what
Me * Jess I love you but I have to go I’ll talk to you tomorrow
Jess * okay I love you
I hung up and my phone was taken from my fingers
“We’ve had to get this fixed once already today” Kerion tipped his head “and you’re bound to hit one of us in here if you throw it again”
“I’m fine” I held my hand out and took the phone back and put it in my bag as the limo stopped outside of a club. I knocked back the champagne as the door opened and the flash bulbs were going off.
Lukas and Chad got out first he stopped and offered me his hand I took it and got out followed by the others and walked into the club past the lines of people waiting to get in the music was thumping as the dance floor seemed to heave with bodies moving and gyrating together. Mike offered me his arm as we were shown up the VIP section with its own bar and comfy seating the table already with a bottles of Champagne, vodka and whiskey on. The drinks flowed and it felt so good to relax without having to think about going on stage or the drama at home. I was dancing with Ryan and Pete and looked round to see Alfie and Kerion talking to Chad and Mike they all looked at me. I went over to them. Chad got up and took my arm and led me over to another couch.
“I’m fine” I shrugged as Mike walked over and sat down with three beers and sat down “What’s this a lets see if Chris is going to break thing”
“No but I know Lukas was giving you a hard time again and you’ll be glad to know he’s flying on to Spain on the red eye tonight” Mike sighed picking up his beer “Those guys told us about the picture you got tonight” he nodded to where Alfie and Kerion were talking to some others. I opened my bag and took out my phone and opened the picture and handed my phone to Chad.
“Damn Chris I’m sorry” he put his hand on my back and rubbed it as he handed the phone to Mike showing him the picture of Dimi kissing Reba’s neck and her minus her top.
“I’ll be fine” I picked up the beer and sank half of it “Hey no more distractions right” I smiled “Look can we just have fun and not dwell on the fact that my boyfriend is now screwing his ex’s sister” I got up and finished the beer “and I hope you guys don’t mind me getting drunk” I walked away
“We need to keep our eyes on her” Chad sat back and shook his head “It’s either going to be all good or all hell will break loose”
We all left the club a little after three in the morning and arrived back at the hotel.
“Chris come on” Kerion held the elevator as I spoke to the girl on reception
“I’ll be there in a while go…” I waved them away as the door closed I got the things from the receptionist and turned to the elevator Chad was leaning on the wall “I thought you’d gone” I slurred a little
“No I’m going to make sure you get to your room” he pushed the button and we stepped inside. “Chris promise me one thing” he was slurring as much as I was
“Don’t let him get to you and don’t bottle it up” he ended with a slight hiccup
“Who” I started to giggle
“The Russian” he laughed “You have way too much talent and your too pretty to let a guy get to you” the lift stopped and the doors opened and a couple got in I moved so I was stood next to him
“Yeah I’m a band geek nothing special” I shrugged he caught my chin in between his thumb and forefinger
“You are you’re rocking the world with a bunch of Canadians”
I had no idea why I did this but I looped my thumbs through the belt loops on his jeans and with the shoes I had on was almost as tall as he was and pressed my lips against his, with in a split second he was kissing me back as if there was no one in the elevator with us his mouth leaving mine and trailing down my neck…………………………….
