...................... I was curled on the couch reading the book I’d got in my bag the fire warming the room.
“Hi Honey I’m home” Chad laughed as he walked in with a bunch of bags he put them down “How you doing?”
“I don’t’ know I just keep wondering how it ended up like this” I looked at him “and thanks for the suggestion the bath helped a whole lot”
“Good did anyone call?”
“Nope” I shook my head
“Damn I thought you’re stuff would have been here from the airport by now”
“I have jeans and a couple of shirts and some underwear with me” I put the book mark in the book “I can go shopping for some other stuff tomorrow if you point me in the direction of the Mall”
“Okay” he nodded “But for tonight” he walked over with three bags
“Dinner remember… you’re not going to sit here and let it eat at you” he walked away from me “I hope I got the right sizes I had to call a few people on your size”
“You could have asked?” smiled
“I didn’t want to disturb you” he called from the kitchen “So I think between Miranda and Alfie we got it down” he came back with a beer and flopped on the couch and turned on the hockey “and I sent pictures of the things to Miranda before I got them for her approval so don’t blame me”
“Oh way to throw her under the bus” I pulled the dress from the bag “Or not this is beautiful” I stood up with is “Damn my best friends good” I whistled
“Hey I gave her the option of two” Chad chuckled
“Sorry” I put the dress down and pulled the shoe box from the next bag “Oh these are awesome” I laughed at the red and black striped shoe
“I didn’t know if you’d got any of your jewelry with you so I just got stuff that I thought looked good with the dress”
“I do have it” I smiled sitting back down as I pulled a cuff, earrings and a ring from the bag “You picked these without Miranda’s help”
“Hey I’ve been told I have good jewelry choices” he pulled a face “I was the one that picked the stuff out when we went to the Awards”
“Well thank you and I bow to your taste” I smiled “and you didn’t have to do this”
“I know but I ain’t going to sit in a restaurant with you in jeans and a hoodie” he laughed. “Oh and Ryan’s gone to get you a phone he was getting a new one because he dropped his down the toilet at the bar yesterday”
“Yeah he didn’t even try to get it back” Chad looked away from the screen at me “the lawyers have arranged a meeting with your Mother and hers on Monday in Seattle. My face fell. “You don’t have to be there Lukas can handle it”
“I should face her” I picked up the new things from the couch “Hell I faced up to Dimitri and survived right” I tried to sound convincing.
“Yes you did” he nodded “and you defiantly told him… but this is your Mom and after what she…”
“Dimitri did basically the same thing to me with the Arron comments” I shrugged
“True… but sleep on it at least before you decide”
“Okay… When are we going out?” I stopped at the door to t he hall
“an hour” he looked at his watch “Because I’m hungry”
“Me too… I haven’t eaten since the flight from Berlin” Chad’s phone rang “I’ll go get ready”
Chad * hello
Kellan * hey I hope you don’t mind me calling
Chad * no… how’s filming?
Kellan * cold standing in water for an hour in Canada in January sucks
Chad * the pay had better be good
Kellan * it is… Hey how’s Chris doing?
Chad * rough she’s having family problems and we’re doing everything we can to help her out
Kellan * she loves you guys
Chad * good
Kellan * look I know this sounds crazy but get her to go dancing
Chad * Dancing?
Kellan * Yep… I know from the way she can move she’s had some training but I took her to a club in Rome that was all Latin stuff… you know where you get close and dance and okay call me corny but it was as if she didn’t have a care in the world.
Chad * okay now I understand the message you asked me to give her
Kellan * yup I just thought while she’s with you that maybe
Chad * I’ll see what I can do but I’m no dancer

Chad * you really care about her don’t you?
Kellan * yes but I’m not going to stand in the way of she meets any one we both have crzy lives and I like waking up with the girl I’m dating not just getting busy in the back of a limo as she drops me at the airport

Kellan *sorry don’t tell her I called though because she’ll give me so much crap
Chad * I won’t
Kellan * okay I have to go stand in the water again
Chad * take care
He hung up the phone and put it down on the table and walked up to his room to get ready. I walked down the stairs to the sounds of our single playing.
‘Don’t you hear this song enough on tour?” I laughed he turned round and looked at me “I forgot you scrubbed up well” I teased I was putting everything bad to the back of my mind.
“Oh thanks” Chad “smiled and I have to say it you look awesome”
“Thank you… now I take it I’m driving” I pulled the key for the McLaren from my purse
“Or I could” he whistled innocently
“The gears are on the wheel” I laughed “and I thought you liked hot cars”
“Okay you drive and I’ll see how it’s done” he picked up his jacket and put it on “And then maybe I can take it for a test drive later”
“Deal” I nodded………………..
