.................. There was silence in the limo before Kerion started to laugh
“Oh Karma’s such a bitch” he was almost crying with laughter
“Damn Chris that could have been…” Alfie trailed off realizing what he was saying “Sorry”
“It’s okay I know what you thinking’ I patted his hand
“Does he know?” Pete asked trying not to laugh like Kerion was
“Miranda’s not sure she’s trying to find out”
“Wow that’s… Damn” Alfie whistled
“Okay sorry to have to ask this” Mike said looking at the four of us “But what are you talking about?”
“The girl that Dimitri was cheating on Chris with is pregnant” Kerion managed to get out before dissolving into a fit of giggles “Oh serves the cow right” he wiped his eyes on his sleeves the limo pulled up to the arena and the guys started to get out laughing and messing around Ryan and Chad hung back.
“You okay?” Ryan asked looking at me
“Yeah” I nodded “It’s a shock that’s all… I know this sort of thing happens but if Elena’s sent him away before he got to find out about this then it’s wrong”
“Still using this too much Chris” Chad tapped his fingers on my chest
“No I mean he should know he has a right to know if he’s going to be a Dad… I feel sort for him”
“Oh we’re so taking you out to a field and shooting you” Ryan groaned “Remember last night the things you said to him about he couldn’t break you anymore” I nodded “He’s pulling at the heart strings Chris, and that’s only going to hurt you at the end of it all” He stepped out of the car I looked at Chad.
“If you want to talk to him then do it” Chad sighed “But I will not let you go there alone one of us will go with you” he was firm as he said it “and don’t use your phone okay” I nodded “Come on” he got out and waited for me the two of us walked inside…………..
“Hey Pete can I borrow your phone?” I asked quietly
I need to make a call without leaving my number” he cocked his head and thought for a minute before throwing it to me. “Thank you” I got up from the chair and walked out and leant on the wall in between the two dressing rooms and dialed.
Dimitri * what Pete?
Me 8 It’s not Pete
Dimitri * Chris
He sounded shocked
Me * yeah
Dimitri * what forget to say something last night?
Me * no I said everything I need to I heard something today that I don’t like
Dimitri * well sucks for you doesn’t it
Me * No not really it was to do with you and nothing to do with me
Dimitri * what?
Me * can we meet? I don’t want to do this over the phone
Dimitri * I guess
Me * okay I’m at the arena can you get here?
Dimitri * everything on your terms Chris is it?
Me * fine you know what I was trying to do something that I think is right but screw you
Dimitri * Chris I’m sorry I can be there in 20 minutes
Me * Okay there’s a Black tour bus at the side of the building I’ll in there
Dimitri * fine
The phone clicked I took a deep breath and walked back into the dressing room were a fierce game of Rock band was going on the Nickelback edition and my guys were kicking there asses I walked over to Lukas and Chad who were watching and laughing and I put Pete’s phone back on the side
“You call?” Chad looked at me I nodded “When?”
“Twenty minutes” Chad stood up and pulled on his jacket
“Okay what are you two up too?’ Lukas narrowed his eyes at us
“We’re trying to find something for my Mom’s birthday” Chad smiled “We won’t be long” I walked out Chad following me.
“What did he have to say?” Chad caught up to me
“I just told him I’d heard something that I didn’t like?”
“And he agreed to meet you?” I nodded ‘Does he have a temper?”
“He can but he’d never hit me” I shook my head as we got to the tour bus
“He’d better not or he won’t know what’s hit him” Chad pulled open the door and stepped back for me I paced the floor as he made a pot of coffee “You don’t have to do this Chris you don’t owe it to him or her for that matter” he was trying to be the voice of reason
“I know I don’t” I stopped pacing and looked at him “But if you had a kid or were going to have a kid don’t you think you should know about it?” He sighed and nodded the door knocked Chad walked over to the couch and sat down. I opene the door Niko and Dimi were both there.
“Hey” Niko Smiled at me and hugged me as he got on and stalled as he saw Chad sitting there he looked at me and shook his head and went and sat dopwn as Dimitri got on. He looked at Chad and then to me
“Had to bring him” I opened my mouth to say something but Chad was on hs feet
“No she didn’t I told her she wasn’t going to meet you on her own” Chad snapped “After what you’ve done to here you’re lucky someone hasn’t torn you apart” I put my hand on Chad’s arm and shook my head he grabbed his coffee from the side and sat back down
“So” Dimitri looked at me
“When was the last time you spoke to Reba?”
‘D just answer her” Niko bit at him
“3 weeks ago” Dimitri leant againt the counter top opposite his brother “Why shouldn’t I have” the nerve in hs cheek was twitching
“You haven’t talked to her since you got here”
“No” I looked at Nico he chewed the inside of his cheek and looked away
“You’re kidding you know” I snapped “Nikolai”
“Know what?” Dimitri demanded
“Mom told me not to say anything” Niko shrugged “I told her it was wrong I told her that you had to know but she told me I’d be living here as well if I said anything”
‘Jesus you’re fucking mothers is priceless” Chad chuckled shaking his head I looked at him
“Not helping” he held up his hand
“I’ve tried calling Reba but I can’t get through my cell works for family only and believe me the Russian coverage is shit” Dimitri rubbed the back of his neck “Why?”
“You or me” I looked at Niko
“Chris will you just tell me” Dimitri caught my arm and tugged me round
“Hey” Chad was in between us “Don’t’ touch her” Dimitri held up his hands and stepped back
“Reba’s pregnant” Niko shouted out. Dimitri’s eyes grew wide ‘Remember the night after we got home from Green Bay” he shot me a look and then put his eyes on his brother “You and her”
“I remember” Dimitri nodded
“She thinks that was the night” Niko swallowed hard “It has to be yours because she wasn’t with anyone else”
“She overheard Reba on the phone to the doctors while she was waiting for you to come home and Mom confronted her” Niko sighed “I’m sorry D”
“Fuck” Dimitri slid down the cabinet doors and buried his face in his hands “What a mess” his voice broke I crouched down and put my hand on his arm. “Youy must be loving this” he looked at me his eyes red and watery from the tears “I fuck you over because I can’t deal with this he gestured round him and at Chad “Karma’s a bitch right”
“Go home Dimi” I stroked his cheek “Go back to her… don’t mess this chance up… please try to make this work” I tried not to cry as he looked like a lost kid right now “Get a place with her and don’t let the baby suffer for your mistakes… Forget what happened with us” I swallowed hard “One of those things we have to deal with” I pressed my lips to his forehead “Don’t let your Mom kill this” I whispered as he broke down sobbing I wrapped my arms round him and held him. He wasn’t the same guy I’d fallen in love with he was as lost now as I once was……………………
