...................... We walked out of the school after spending most of the afternoon giving an impromptu show. Xander Hip checked me
“So after that you ready to go out to the beach” I shook my head as my phone began to ring
“I’m beat jet lag and that stuff” I was making excuses now I wanted the security that I felt when I was on tour without having to face kids I went to school with and the hassle of Niko trying to get me to see his brother
Me * hello
Lukas * hey how’s it going?
Me * Are you checking up on us?
Lukas * yep
Me * it sucks point blank
Lukas * strange going back there
Me * Hell yeah I think we’re all struggling a little
Lukas * have you spoken to your Dad and sister
Me * Oh long story I’ll fill you in at the weekend
I moved away from the crowd
Me * I’m getting out of here as soon as I can
Lukas * where you going?
Me * I booked a flight to Seattle I’ll stay there till the weekend
Lukas * Seattle WHY?
Me * close to where we’re going and as far from here as I can get right now without leaving the country
Lukas * okay call me when you land and I’ll have security for you
Me * alright thanks Lukas
Lukas * hey I want your head in the game Miss. Sommers this is going to be one hell of a record okay
Me * Yes Sir
I hung up
“You’re leaving” I jumped and turned round Miranda was standing there looking at me
“I have to. I can’t deal with this crap Mir… I miss you and Xander like crazy but I get here and you guys tell me about all the crap going on and Niko all but gets on his knees to ask me to get back with Dimi”
‘He did what?”
‘Look forget it… I need to get away… I need to talk to people that know what’s going on but don’t, if that makes sense”
“You mean Kellan?” a smile played on her lips
“No not Kellan he doesn’t know half of what’s happened and I like it that way” I held her hands “I just talked to Lukas and he agrees for me to do my best I have to get my head right and now I feel in a fog”
“Okay” she murmured “I feel a failure as a friend”
“You’re not far from it you’re my girl you and Heidi I need your sanity but right now I want you to make sure Jess is okay when she gets home”
“I will” She hugged me “Call me” I nodded as the limo pulled up Pete was standing by it with Kerion and Alfie.
“Call us when you get there” I nodded “Things are going to be okay Chris”
“I know” I hugged the three of them “I’ll see you at the weekend” They nodded and I got in the car and closed my eyes as it pulled away from the school
“To the hotel Miss. Sommers?” the driver asked
‘”No the airport please” I didn’t open my eyes till I felt the car stop and the warm breeze as the door was opened for me” I took my bag from the driver and walked inside to the check in desk and was shown to the first clas lounge with all the business men looking at me in my plaid shirt jeans and boots. I flicked open my phone and dialed
Man * Seattle Mercedes this is Jon how can I help you
Me * I was checking that you got a delivery scheduled for a McLaren
Jon * Er… yes yes we did looking at this it should be in by 7 tonight it’s been re routed from LA

Me * good can you make sure the tank is filled
Jon * Yes Ma’am I can… is this for your husband
Me * no… I’ll be there to collect it at 8
Jon * very good
I hung up I wasn’t up for making pleasantries for people. I looked at my phone as it vibrated

I hit dial
Kellan * Oh that was fast
Me * Yeah I’d just got off a call when I got the message
Kellan *friends right

Kellan * Okay I got photographed out on a date

Me * It’s okay I get it. Don’t worry about it
Kellan * I wanted you to hear it from me Chris
Me * thank you
Kellan * it’s nothing serious
Me * Kellan we’d agreed that we weren’t going to go there when we have such crazy schedules didn’t we?
Kellan * I know
Me * It doesn’t’ mean we have to stop talking or…
“Excuse me Miss Sommers” a Steward walked over “The flights’ boarding” I nodded and got up
Kellan * Where you going I thought you were heading home?
Me * Seattle to treat myself and get away from crap
Kellan * you need a hug right now don’t you?

Kellan * got to a place like the Latin one we went to on Rome someone will make you smile
Me * and my managers will kill me for going out without security
