................. OMG I was sitting across a table from a guy
that 6 months earlier I was drooling over with my friends in the
movie theatre talking about how he could bite my neck any day and
make me into his vampire queen. The conversation was easy he
seemed to be sweet and laid back. The only time the conversation
turned serious was when he talked about his brother being out in
Afghanistan with the Marine Corps.
"So come on I've talked about myself most of the night" he leant
forward on his arms "What about you?"
"What about me?" I felt slightly shy and messed with the pendant
on the choker round my neck.
"Where are you from? What's your family like?" he sat back and
picked up his drink
"Original Wisconsin" I smiled "Small town in the middle"
"Yeah a sensible mid west girl my Mom will be happy" he chuckled
raising his glass to me I shook my head
"But I was living in Florida when I... sorry we" I corrected
myself "were discovered" I ran my finger round the edge of my
glass "and to say it's been a sort of crazy whirlwind is
something of an understatement. Four months ago I was a high
school senior now I'm touring the world for a year with
"Wow" he smiled and leant forwards again "How many guys put their
number in your cell the night of the awards?"
"Just one" I laughed "because for some reason I believed him when
he said his was the same phone and he convinced me to let him see
mine while his hand was on my ass" I watched him smirk and hang
his head a little "I've had to put up with a heap of crap because
of you" I wagged my finger at him
"I'm sorry" he pushed his tongue into his cheek "I thought that
when I called you earlier and the guy answered that you were in
bed with someone" I looked at him and raised my eye brows "Come
on a guy answers the phone and tells me your sleeping I almost
hung up there and then" the waiter rough the check both of us
reached for it "Hey I asked you out I'm paying" he scolded
handing his card over
"I'm glad you didn't hang up"
'Me too" he nodded "Who was the guy anyway?"
"Chad Kroeger" I nodded "Damn I got a little speechless and
tongue tied when I saw him tonight" he rubbed the back of his
neck "I make movies for a living and still get star struck" he
got up and held my jacket out for me to put on.
"Yeah but it's just Chad" I picked up my purse
"Exactly Rock god and to get a warning from another member of the
band about bringing you home" he laughed
"They're sort of protective" I pulled a face
"I don't blame them" The waiter opened the door for us Kellan
stepped out first into a face full of camera flashes. I followed
him to the curd where he flagged a cab the two of us laughing as
we almost fell into it He said something to the driver and draped
his arm over the back of the seat "You want t go back to your
hotel or you think this date might last a little longer"
"I think I'm good for a while" I nodded goose bumps jumping up on
my arm as his fingers brushed against the back of my neck
"I know a little club that you can dance till dawn if you feel
"Dance till dawn"
"Well you might have to make a phone call and let them know
you'll be late" he sighed "But I'll make sure you get home
"They'll be okay" I looked at him "Damn you're hot" my hand flew
to my mouth as the words tumbled from between my lips instead of
staying put in my brain where they were supposed to be.
"Funny I was just thinking the same thing" he moved to face me
"Are you sure if I do this I won't be treading on someone's
"This" he moved a hand and touched the side of my face my eyes
closed as I felt his warm breath on my face before his lips
touched mine in a sweet kiss that made my head spin he pulled
back "Sorry I had to whether I tread on toes or not"
"No toes" I breathed my voice sounded like I was gasping for my
"So no engagement to Chad then?" he smiled as the cab stopped
"I saw the ring and the kiss" he opened the door and took my hand
leading me into a club the beat of Latin music spilling out while
people moved with each other on the dance floor.
"The ring was part of a set I'd been loaned for the night of the
awards" I smiled "and the kiss was Chad being a smart ass"
"You talk about him like he's a normal guy"
"He is" I laughed "Admittedly I was the same as you the first
time we met them"
"Oh yeah I'd just sang on a stage in Tampa" I said sitting down
he sat next to me his hand resting on my leg I'd just actually
belted out 'Side of a bullet' and "I'd come for you'
"One extreme to the other" Kellan laughed I nodded
"Yeah well I finished the song turned round and Nickelback were
sitting there… I think we all forgot how to speak and that night
Chad helped my onto the stage in boots to here" I indicated mid
thigh with 4 inch heels "and I guess the rest is what's gotten me
"I've heard about your stage costumes" he bit his bottom lip
"Personally I can't wait" thank god it was dark in the club he
couldn't see me blush. "Come on dance" he got up and pulled me up
slipping my jacket off and throwing it along with is onto the
chair "One rule we have to be touching all the time when you
dance in here" he pulled me into the middle of the dance floor
and pulled me against him.
"who taught you to do this?" I was almost breathless as he moved
"Something I picked up" he laughed the dance was hot and sexy and
the music as ever was like a drug to me the movement all in the
hips we were so close there wasn't a chance even a hair could get
in between us…………………….
