.................. 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
"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
"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
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
"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
"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
"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
"You haven't talked to her since you got here"
"No" I looked at Nico he chewed the inside of his cheek and
"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
"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
"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……………………
