.................. We spent the rest of the day avoiding the hotel so we didn't have to face Elena and every time she called I sent it to voice mail, she'd even tried to get to us through Xander and Jackson's phones. I'd sent a text to Mike that we'd all made our decision.

I was listening to my I-pod as the guys and Jess played football at a small park we'd found I smiled and let the music be the sound track to the fun that I was watching a song came on making me sit taller and play it over another couple of times before getting an idea .I jumped off the wall and called up Lukas's number as I called the guys over.

"What?" Kerion groaned "We were beating the jocks for once"

"Yeah right there was six of you against Jackson and Xander and they were still creaming" I smiled trying to contain myself "Take a listen to this I handed him my earphones

"Oh that's awesome" he handed it off to Pete and Alfie to listen to. "what are you thinking?"

"That with a little bit of tweaking we can start the night off properly" I smiled "Xander can you take Jess back to the hotel please"

"Sure where are you going?" He frowned as Jackson put Jess on his shoulders as a limo pulled up

"To a studio" I looked at Jess "Okay go with Xander and Jackson okay and at the concert tonight I want to see you wearing your costume that Marie gave you okay" I smiled

"Okay" she bent down and kissed me "Love you"

'Love you too Jess" I hurried to the car and slid into the seat next to the others.

"Well you guys have certainly put a firework in to the mix" Mike laughed

"What are you doing here?"

"Lukas told me to come help you guys get started. Dan's going to meet us there, Lukas, Chad and Ryan are with the Lawyers" he smiled "did you pick up a newspaper by the way?"

"No, we forgot with everything that was going one" Pete said shaking his head

"Well Elena's phone hasn't stopped ringing with press calls put it like that" he chuckled and handed me a paper "I know my brother can be devious where his personal life is concerned and the press, but you two are having too much fun" he wagged his finger at me with a lopsided smile.

"Yeah well what's life without a bit of fun" I smiled, I looked at the picture "Damn… good job I was wearing underwear with the angle this was taken at, and OMG they've circled the lipstick on his neck" I started laughing I was on a high with what we were about to do the more time I'd had to think about everything that was happening with Dimi and Elena the more I wanted the Russian's out of my life…………………….

……………. "Okay sneaking into our own dressing room is a bit farfetched isn't it?" Pete said in a hushed laugh

'We're not sneaking" I smirked "we're tip toeing round my hangover"

"You mean the hangover that seemed to disappear when you'd sunk a pot of coffee and sang your heart out like I've never seen you sing before" Kerion said opening the door to the dressing room suddenly stopping and jumping back into Alfie

"OW idiot" Alfie groaned "Shit busted" he sighed as Elena stood in there with her arms folded across her chest.

"You boys need to get ready in one of the other rooms. I need to talk to Christine" she said bluntly her accent prominent showing exactly how angry she was

"No they don't" I said shaking my head and walking between the guys to stand in front of her "whatever you want to say you can say in front of them I have no secrets from them at all"

"Fine" she snapped "What did we talk about just the other day?" She inhaled and reminded me of a bull getting ready to gore the next person to step in front of them

"Well…there was how well we'd done on stage and how much of a total waste of time your son is" her eyes got wider

"How dare you, Dimitri is in love with you" she was almost yelling "You go and do this sort of thing like some groupie looking for a night in bed with a rock star"

"Hey enough" Lukas walked in behind me "Elena get out while they get ready, they have work to do. We'll have time for this after the gig" his hands were on my shoulders as if protecting me somehow "We have a photo shoot to do before the show and Marie is waiting to get you ready Chris, guys you have new stuff as well" he didn't move till I had walked away and into wardrobe.

"Tough day sweetheart" Marie smiled at me

"Tough night and Day" I sighed pulling off my shirt I was sure Elena was going to burst through the door and tear me apart at some point

"Love never runs smooth" she smiled walking over with a top for me I slid it on and she zipped it up

"Yeah well I hope for a better guy than the last one" I shrugged as I took off my jeans and put on the lacy shorts and looked in the mirror "only I have to have a show down with Elena"

"You're done with Dimitri?" she stopped half way across the room with my boots in her hand

"Done and dusted" I nodded walking over and taking the boots from her I sat down and tugged on the first boot "He crossed a line by so much he couldn't even see where the line had been… and once you've done that then there's no going back" I looked at her as I finished putting on the second boot "Today is the day I'm taking my life back and making it work" I stood up

"But you and he" I narrowed my eyes and looked at her

"Marie I'm almost nineteen so I'm going to like I'm almost nineteen" I looked in the mirror and caught sight of Marie looking almost as mad as Elena

"Give it time you'll see it differently" she said shaking her head

"I don't think I will Marie, and right now I'm happy with that" I shrugged

"Chris" Lukas put his head round the door "ready?"

"Sure see you later Marie" I hurried out, We had publicity pictures ready for the launch of the single taken Alfie nudged me and nodded at the side of the stage where Elena was standing talking rather heatedly on her phone in Russian Dimitri's name was mentioned a lot in the conversation, Chad walked over and stood next to me it was the first time I'd seen him since talking to him the night before.

"Well I think we put the cat amongst the pigeons last night" he grinned at me

"I know I saw the paper and I've basically been called a groupie slut by my manager" I shrugged "But hey who gives a damn"

"I'm liking feisty new Chris" he nodded "Mike won't tell me what you guys were up to this afternoon… I like being the sneaky one in the family"

'Well I guess you'll have to wait and see. All I'm going to say is be at the side of the stage for our last song" I laughed

"Sounds ominous" Chad frowned

"No just a small something, something" I teased walking to the steps of the stage Kerion walked by me and smiled. We were all so excited for what we had planned. I high fived him and went to the top of the steps and waited for the start of the intro to our first song. Tonight felt so different like a weight had been lifted, it felt more fun than normal being on the stage it got to our final song, I took a drink and a deep breath "Okay I managed to call in a small favor from someone to get us the use of a song by Bon Jovi" the crowd started clapping and whistling "We've spent the afternoon just tweaking it a little to make it more personal to NeverWest" I caught sight of Mike and Dan grinning and giving us the thumbs up. Elena was looking a little lost along with Chad and Ryan and as ever Lukas just had his poker face on "So thank you Lukas for pulling strings" he nodded "Mike and Dan… you guys are the best for helping with the tweaking"

Kerion knocked his drummer sticks together three times
