...................... Walking the red carpet was amazing. People were calling our names and the flash bulbs were going off like fireworks. We were interviewed and talked to by press from around the world Chad walked back to us and bent his head to my ear.
“I’m not saying anything I’m just screwing with the press” he chuckled “Have you been asked about us?” I shook my head “Oh I have” he moved away and poked his tongue out and walked back to the others.
“Okay you and he are having way too much fun with this” Alfie laughed
“Oh hell yes” we walked up to the final interview post before going inside.
“So Number one in 4 countries in the space of a week” the girl beamed at us “Congratulations”
“What?” Kerion pulled a WTF face
“You didn’t know”
“No we only flew in from Spain this morning and we haven’t seen anything” I said standing on his foot to shut him up.
“Yeah you’ve got number one in the US, England Spain and Italy” she was one of these really over the top reporters
“Well that’s amazing it’s all happened so fast but we have to say thank you to people who seem to like us” Alfie laughed draping his arm round me
“So Christine if the pictures are anything to go by you’ve already netted yourself a rocker”
“I’m the only girl in the two bands we’re with I’m kinda surrounded by them” I smiled
“Oh come on you and Chad Kroeger”
“Yeah he’s defiantly one of them” I nodded
“Okay we need to get them inside” One of the producers came up behind her
“Okay so folks I must be losing my touch as neither Chad Kroeger or Christine Sommers would give us any gossip” she smiled into the camera as we stepped away and into the building the producer hurrying us to our seat I looked at the row our names were on the seats already.
“Nice” I laughed “you do this?” I looked at my name next to the seat where Chad was sitting he grinned at me with Mike sitting next to him laughing
“Christine would I?” he smirked “Dan did it” I sat down
“Okay you know when I said no to being asked about us” he nodded “Well I just was”
“The girl at the end?” I nodded “What did you tell her?”
“Nothing which frustrated the crap out of her” I smiled
“Nice job” he laughed half way through the awards we had to get up and change to sing the song that was now considered a hit. I was holding on to the door frame while being placed into the red and black corset.
“Well you weren’t wearing that the other night” I looked over my shoulder Jon Bon Jovi was standing smiling “I had to come and tell you nice job again” he held out his hand I shook it he put his head round the dressing room door and looked at the guys “I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys do live” I head a clatter of drumsticks and an Oh Shit from Alfie. Jon backed out laughing and walked away Pete came over.
“He spoke he actually spoke to us” He was shaking me making the wardrobe girl tut at him
“I know I just realized something” Kerion said putting his head on Alfie’s shoulder “Normally when we’re on stage it’s fans people we don’t know we’re going out there tonight in front of people that we’ve been fans of ourselves” we all looked at him “Shit”.
“All done” the wardrobe mistress patted my hip as the stage manager came hurrying over.
“Go go go” he hustled us to the side of the stage. Chad was on the second stage with Mike. I looked at the others they just shrugged at me.
“Okay I have the pleasure every night of their company” Chad smiled a lot of whistles and Catcalls came from the crowd “And god to we love them… It’s my honor to introduce one hell of a hot and I truly mean hot band… Never west” he walked away on the other side of the stage as we were waiting on the second stage.
The music took me to that happy place again and we pulled it out getting an almost standing ovation as we ended. It felt so different compared to a normal gig we ran off the stage and changed back from the stage costumes and were shown back to our seats. Lukas leant across us.
“Thank you” I mouthed “And you” I poked Chad’s arm.
“How much innuendo can you put into two sentences?”
“Oh Chris he wanted to do more” Mike laughed pushing his brother back in the seat “I had to reign him in”
“Thank you for that” I shook my head at Chad who was smirking
“Oh and Chris” I looked back to Mike “The ring”
“I know beautiful isn’t it?”
“No the finger”
“It was his idea” I pointed down the row to Pete who was wide eyed looking round at the stars in there.
“You didn’t notice” he looked at Chad “Move seats let me talk to Chris”
“No what if the camera pans round”
“Then she’s sitting next to you r married brother” he laughed now move your ass Chad moved letting Mike slid into his seat next to me. “You didn’t notice that” he grabbed Chad’s left hand and pulled it across “he got an new ring too” I groaned and believe me I’ve been asked twice in the damn bathroom by reporters if you two were engaged already” I looked down at the ring on my finger.
“Shortest engagement ever the ring’s on loan” I started to laugh making Mike Laugh as well. Lukas shot us a shut up look I turned away from him if I looked at him I’d have keeled over laughing. I looked at the stage as Some German singer was on the stage to announce the award for best international rock group. We waited while the nominations were read out including Nickelback. He opened the envelope and announced them as the winners the guys all got up and hugged each other before they hugged all of us Chad took my face in his hands and planted a quick kiss on my lips and hugged me
“well that just got beamed round the world” he whispered he moved away and walked up on to the stage I almost wanted the ground to swallow me right there and then as the sound of burn it to the ground filled the theatre. I could feel my face was beet red and I knew it would be a huge ‘I warned you it wasn’t anyone’s business but mine’ to Elena and Dimitri. Pete leant into me.
“Okay for acting the sexual tension is ridiculous” he chuckled
“Yeah right” I swatted him “your all hot and horny because you have Taylor Swift sitting in front of you… you’re getting confuddled with that” I linked his arm and hugged it “Tonight has to rank up there with one of the best ever” he nodded.
“Not bad for 4 band geeks Eh?”
“No not bad at all”…………………………………………….
