.............. Chad opened the door Elena had got herself
situated at the top of the table her phone and laptop on the
table in front of her she watched each of us walk into the room
Lukas pulled out a chair for me to sit down before walking to the
chair at the other end of the table facing Elena. Alfie sat next
to me on one side with Kerion on the other and Pete next to him
Nickelback lining up opposite us.
"So who's going to get this started?" Elena asked the anger
seeping into her voice
"Ladies first" Lukas smiled
"Why? Why so you want to take away my band I found them I created
them" She banged her hand on the table making Me jump Kerion
looked at me and smiled
"No you admittedly found them and brought them to our attention"
Lukas was cool and calm "We organized the contracts"
"They are down to me" he accent was thick
"Excuse me" I half put my hand up making Chad smirk "I think
you'll find that our music teacher found us it was him that put
the four of us together you're sons asked you to have us
sing at the party you were having" Ryan leant in and whispered
something to Ryan who just nodded as they watched us as I'd
emphasized the word sons. Elena narrowed her eyes and stared at
"You'd know all about both of my son's wouldn't you" a wry smile
etched it's way on to her face "Dimi told me about what happened
with you and Nikolai" I groaned inwardly as all eyes fell on me
"There's words for a girl like you"
"Hey we're here to talk about you walking away with a fat
paycheck" Chad's turn to slam his hand down "Your personal
feelings to Chris should have nothing to do with any of this… Its
business" she turned her head slowly
"You'd understand all about that wouldn't you" she threw the
paper on the table the picture of Chad and I from the night
before. It spun to a stop in front of Chad
"Like I said this is about the band not any feelings anyone has
on a personal level" he tipped his head and looked at her My
heart was in my throat right now and was pretty close to choking
"There was a get out clause in the contract" Lukas said ignoring
what had just happened "you get this" he slid an envelope across
the table she put her hand on it stopping it going anywhere "And
you'll get another $100,000 in six months time" Elena lifted the
envelope and put it in her bag.
"So she sleeps with you and you push me out of the picture" she
looked back at Chad
"Hey" I got to my feet, Alfie holding onto my wrist "I haven't
slept with anyone, since some Russian son of a bitch swore black
and blue he wouldn't hurt me, but so help me now I'm single who I
sleep with is going to be my business and my business only all
the guys round the table looked at each other and backed away
slightly. "No sign whatever it is you need to sign and stop
trying to make me the perfect girl for your son because I'm not,
and I'm not going to let myself be in a relationship like that
again where he can do what he wants but I have to do what he
says" I was glaring at her over the table as she reached for the
contact and signed it.
"We trusted you…" Pete said pulling me back down in the seat "we
trusted you but you used us to keep Chris part of your life and
Dimitri's do you know how sick that is"
"I hope you'll all be happy" she got up ignoring Pete and put her
things into her bag "I want to talk to Christine alone"
"Hell no" Kerion got up
"It's okay" I got up and walked to the door that lead to a second
room she followed me.
"You think you're it don't you" she growled "you're nothing but a
dime store whore" she walked round me like a wild dog about to go
in for the kill "Chad's written song's about girls like you on
their knees "Her voice was low her accent making it hard to
understand some of what she was saying "You used Dimi to get to
me to get to where you are"
"How the hell did you work that out he never talked about his
parents at school and I found out what you did on the way to your
party… I never thought I was good enough to be professional I was
happy doing what I was doing. We never sought out an agent or a
manager" I turned on her "I'm not some sort of puppet for you to
dangle in front of Dimitri because you think I'm going to be the
good wife while he screws around behind my back"
"You have the nerve to talk about him screwing around you got his
"Yes I did because I thought the way to get back at Arron for
what he did was find a guy and fuck him" I got in her face "But
at least you have one good son and he made me see sense"
"No he just doesn't like whores that get pregnant and are weak
against their men like you and the farm boy" My fist balled up
"Whoa no you don't" I was grabbed round the waist and turned
around and was facing Lukas Dan was behind me as Alfie pulled me
over with him and the others "We don't need an excuse for her to
issue a law suit"
"I don't care" I yelled "You bitch. You god damn bitch I lost
that baby because of what the farm boy did to me yes I shouldn't
have been pregnant when I was 17 but shit it happens and I didn't
ask for the crap to be kicked out of me because he'd got me
"Get Chris to your room" Lukas instructed Alfie "Chad can you go
get hotel security to have Mrs. Carpov escorted from the
"Definalty" Chad followed us out and to the elevator "Chris you
okay" I just nodded as I paced angrily
"We'll make sure she's okay" Kerion sighed
"Good we'll be up there in a while" Chad walked back down the
hall with two of the security guards.
"You're not going to hit one of us are you" Pete asked as we
stepped in the elevator
"No but just give me a few minutes okay" they all knew that I
meant just don't talk to me and let me calm myself down and get
things sorted out in my own head……………………………….
