……………. Everyone else in the place seemed to disappear as we
danced my heart was thudding in my chest. The air in the club was
heavy and thick the beat doing nothing but igniting a fire. The
song changed and we kept on moving, I'm sure if we stopped the
music would die and the night would end. I wanted to look at him
so badly but I couldn't because I didn't trust myself not to
recreate what happened in the Elevator in Spain. The heat was
getting intense his shirt was sticking to him as my hands worked
independently of my mind moving up his sides and across his
chest. His hands were on the working up from my hips one of them
twisting my hair in his fingers I swear to god I was more turned
on dancing here than I'd ever been.
"Dude" the sound of Mikes voice carried over the noise I felt
Chad stiffen his stance and the grip on my hair was lessened
"Fuck" Chad muttered I took my chance to look at him now, I
wasn't going to do anything in front of his brother and god knows
who else was with him "I'm sorry" he looked at me, there was a
hunger in his eyes that pulled at something inside of me
"Finally someone teaches you how to dance" Mike laughed putting a
hand on my shoulder and Chad's
"Bar crawl?" Chad asked stepping back from me a little but still
keeping one hand on my waist
'Yup we're on a roll" Mike laughed pointing to where he was with
some guys and girls.
"We we're just getting ready to leave" Chad smiled "We had to
deal with Paparazzi before"
"They're outside of here now they we're asking about you guys?"
Mike picked up a beer "So I gave em shit"
"Thanks Bro" Chad nodded "See you tomorrow"
"Sure we'll be round after dinner" Chad nodded I reached for my
purse as he grabbed his jacket I was half way down the stairs my
heart still racing. Mike caught Chad's arm "Look after her
there's at least 20 guys outside and they want something" Chad
nodded and caught me up.
"It's going to be crazy out there" He said pulling me to him
'I guessed it might be" again I couldn't look at him properly was
I imagining what was happening in there. He put his Jacket round
my shoulders as the doorman opened the door. I stepped out in to
what seemed like a million flash bulbs going off
"Chad are you and Chris together?" Someone shouted
"Chris are you trying to get back at Kellan for hooking up with
his co star?"
"Guys come on" Chad tried to sound relaxed but it didn't work
"Chris have you only got a gig like you have because of your
Mom's books?" I pulled Chad's jacket tighter round me and began
to cross the street to the parking garage
"Chad is the engagement back on? Have you forgiven Chris for
seeing Kellan" Chad stopped walking
"You guys truly are idiots" he laughed "You don't even know when
you're getting played"
"At least we know why Never West are touring with you" A reporter
Laughed "I wouldn't kick that out of bed either" he gestured to
me I stopped and looked round to see Chad Squaring up to the guy
"You really want to go there?" Chad barked in his face giving him
a push "Don't Question the bands talent"
"Well Chris has some obvious talents" the guy smiled a sickly
smile that turned my stomach I watch Chad ball his fist I ran
over and grabbed his arm
"Chad no" I tugged him "Thick skin remember?' He relaxed and
turned away from the reporter and I linked his arm and we walked
back across the street, he handed the Valet the ticket, the
rumble of the McLaren again a comforting sound.
"You can drive if you want" I finally looked at him anger and
annoyance etched on his face.
"You sure?" He relaxed as he spoke to me I nodded as the car
pulled up I walked round to the passenger side and opened the
door and got in. Chad pulled out of the garage almost taking out
three or four of the paparazzi in the process. The Car tore up
the street. "Well we can guess what's going to be in the press
tomorrow" He sighed settling back in the seat as if he was
getting a massage from it.
"I'd rather read the crap that' going to be in there than reading
about you getting bailed from jail for beating the crap out of
one of them" I Looked at him
"Yeah, Thank you for pulling me away" he glanced over "I owe you
that one" A silence fell between us. Neither of us wanting to
bring up what was happening in the club. The street outside of
Chad's house was lined with cars and people with camera's were
milling around as he opened the gate and drove inside "Oh well
looks like we have to close all the drapes" he turned off the
"I can leave and go and stay at a hotel"
"Like hell you will" he answered quickly "You're safer here. Come
on" we both got out and walked into the house, we closed the
drapes and the blinds so no one could get a clear view in the
house. I walked into the kitchen Chad was leaning against the
counter; I took a deep breath… come on girl all or nothing.
"So what happened to not being able to dance?" I smiled leaning
on the island.
"It suddenly became easy when I had a good teacher" I watched his
grip on the counter get tighter his knuckles turning white
"Shame we had to stop"
"Yeah well my brother has this really bad sense of timing" he
smiled lifting his head and looking at me "Or I think we'd have
still been there"
"Dancing?" I asked biting down on my lower lip
"Maybe" he reached across the counter and pressed a button on a
remote control and walked round to me as 'Into the night' started
to play "it doesn't have to stop" his voice was ragged "So how
does it work again?" he reached for me I felt 1000 butterflies
explode in my stomach as I stepped closer to him.
"You have to hold me close and let the music move you" I almost
couldn't get the words out.
One of his hands moved to the small of my back the other tracing
tiny circles on the skin above the zipper on the back of my dress
I nodded as we moved across the floor I could still feel the
dampness of his shirt from the club the heat of his body
underneath as my hand rested over his heart. It was racing almost
as fast as mine. His hand left the small of my back and it
brushed away the hair from my shoulder the sensation sent shivers
up and down my spine my eyes closed and my back arched as the
song came to an end. We stopped moving but didn't move apart. His
fingers trailed back down my arms I opened my eyes and looked at
him. He hesitated for a second before he kissed me lightly.
Instinctively my arms circled his neck, the kiss deepening a moan
filled the air but I wasn't sure if it came from Chad or me.
"I need to shower" he murmured his thumb rubbing the side of my
neck "I feel like I've been on stage" I swallowed hard and took a
step back trying to calm down
"I'm sorry… I…" my voice was shaky
"It feels like you've done one as well" he drew me back to him
"Damn Chris" he groaned as I ran my fingers down his chest over
his shirt He stepped back and linked his fingers with mine
leading me to his room and into the bathroom he reached into the
shower and turned on the water. He turned back to me and stroked
the side of my face. "If you want to walk away right now then I
understand" I reached behind my neck and unclipped my necklace
and put it on his vanity along with the ring and the earrings.
"You'll need to do my zipper" I turned away from him and moved my
Everything was so different to anything I had done and felt
before. Arron had been out to hurt me and get what he wanted.
Dimitri had made it okay for me to feel again, Kellan had made me
feel like I was the hottest person on the planet and it was okay
to let loose and laugh. But Chad was making it feel like we were
the last two people left as if there was only the two of us. His
body was pressed against my back as his fingers worked the soap
in my hair. He hadn't kissed me since we we're in the kitchen and
my body was screaming for more. I was aching for him to touch me.
I felt so hot I was terrified it was going to spontaneously
combust. Chad's fingers left my hair as the water washed the soap
out and his hands moved slowly down my neck and my arms
"You're beautiful" he murmured against the wet skin just below my
ear. That tipped me closer to the edge I turned in his arms and
my mouth searched out his our tongues in an all out war, the
coolness of the tile against the hot skin on my back made me gasp
and arch in to him, he chuckled as my leg hitch over his hip.
Moaning as my teeth grazed his throat and he pushed against me. I
hate it to sound Cliché but it was like someone had let off
fireworks behind my eyes and I gripped him as I lost
