................ "Come on lets just get back to the hotel and you
can get some sleep" Alfie said nudging me as Lukas walked into
the dressing room and closed the door.
"No I want to call him"
"And it's been taken care of Chris" Chad said shaking his head
"Dimitri Carpov and his mother have had a restraining order
slapped on them this morning"
"They can't contact you or talk to the press about you or we can
sue then for everything they have" Mike rubbed my back "Now go
back to the hotel get some sleep and don't stay out partying till
7 am again… without the rest of us" Chad linked his fingers with
mine and pulled me to the waiting Limo I slid in he got in with
"You're going to have a breakdown if this carries on" I looked at
him "You need to stop letting him and others bother you how old
"Exactly if you can't break free and have fun and date anyone you
want then it's a pretty sorry case of affairs" He reached for the
bottle of scotch that was in the limo and poured two classes of
it "I know you want to rip into him but be the bigger person and
ignore what he said" I chewed the inside of my cheek Come on we
still have 11 months of rocking the world making people smile and
you seeing what life should be about as long as you're careful
and pick the people in your life carefully"
'So what do I do about you guys" I smiled putting my head on hs
"Okay I'll let that one slid" Chad laughed "So you and the
"It's okay he's human really' I sat up and looked at him "I guess
we're done screwing with the press" he nodded
"I guess so but you have to admit it was fun"
"Hell yeah… Chad"
"Who was on the phone earlier?"
"Oh she thinks we're going to be having a huge wedding in Holly
wood" he chuckled "even though I did tell her you were out on a
date last night"
"See I told you she's in a world of her own" I sighed running my
fingers through my hair "When do we get a week off?"
"I want t find an island somewhere and spend a week with my I-pod
and a stack of books" I looked at him "I absolutely love what I
"But it's all the shit that flies along with it" Chad tapped his
glass to mine "I'll get Lukas to book something for you but as a
warning if it's somewhere really good you might find four
Canadians and their families tagging along" he nudged me as we
pulled up to the hotel. "Now go get some sleep because I'm going
to do the same thing"
"You didn't go out last night" he stepped out of the car and we
walked in together
"I know but I was waiting up for someone to get back from a date"
he chuckled "See you later Chris" he kissed my head and walked to
reception as I headed for the elevator…………….
………………. I could feel a warm breeze on my cheek like I was lay on
a beach and the ocean air was warming me . I slowly opened my
eyes, no sun just rain hammering on the glass of the window.
"I did call and you didn't answer" I jumped at the voice 'I'm
sorry" I turned over to see Kellan lay next to me on top of the
comforter "Your friends let me in" I sat up and rubbed my eyes
"How long have you been here?"
"10 minutes" he smiled "I didn't want to wait till tonight"
"Are you always this forward?" I got out of bed and pulled the
"When I see something I like yes" he nodded "Mom said I was the
same when I was a kid… I can go though Alfie said you had a bit
of a rough time after we left" I put on a pot of coffee and
turned and looked at him.
"You could say that" I nodded "and you can stay. I like the
"We heard that" Pete called form the other room I pulled the door
"You look like you need a hug?' Kellan got up
"You wouldn't believe surround by all these guys how hard it
actually is to get a proper hug" I smiled "They suck at it" he
put his arms round me and lifted me off the floor his head
nuzzling under my hair my back arched into him spontaneously as
he held me against him. God this was scary I was feeling things I
vowed not to for a while. I moved my head my lips searching out
his I felt the cold of the wall against my back and the weight of
Kellan pressing into me. Dimitri's words on the -phone message
rang in my ears making me stop. "What is it?" he gasped
"I'm sorry I didn't… I shouldn't… I mean I want… oh god I moved
away from him and sat on the bed
"Chris" He walked over to me "Don't be sorry"
"Is it Chad?" I looked at him he looked a little hurt over
excited in certain areas but still hurt in the face
"No hell no…" I got up and walked over to him
"I mean I wasn't planning coming here and spending the next few
hours in bed with you" he paced the floor "I wouldn't say no
but…" I stopped him
"I just got done with a relationship that ended really nasty as
in he's still causing problems… he's still calling and well you
didn't want to hear the sort of things he's been saying" Kellan
looked at me
"I'm sorry" He sat down and pulled me onto his lap "He's an idiot
letting you go"
"I'm serious I think most men would say the same. You're hot as
hell Chris and I'll admit I've already had two cold showers today
and I think I'm going to need a third" I felt the color rise in
my cheeks. He nudged my jaw with his nose his lips returned to my
neck "But you could always come in there with me?" he
