................ “Make love in the shower did you? One of your favorite things to do” She picked up my necklace from the vanity “No diamonds Chad you’re slipping”
“Get out of my house” Chad snapped
“You know still sounds strange when you say that because I helped you decide which house to buy” She smiled
“Mari you need to go” Dan said shaking his head
“Yeah why the hell would you come back here after you left and dragging my wife into this” Ryan was now in the door way great four guys one crazy blond and me in a bathroom
“I had to see if things had changed” she put the necklace down
“Er… excuse me” I coughed “Naked in the tub here”
“Yeah sorry” Chad looked at me He grabbed the Blond by the arm and pulled her from the room I looked at Dan and Ryan.
“Who the hell?” I mouthed Ryan made an X with his fingers “Oh right… Hey can you hand me the robe please” I pointed to where a thick white robe hung on the back of the door Dan took it off and put it on the side of the tub “Thanks” they walked out and closed the door.
………….. “You have no right coming back in here” Chad yelled “No right at all. You packed and left and all you did was leave a note”
“Oh and here was me hoping for one night for old times sake” She smiled
‘Like hell” Chad laughed as Mike handed him a towel “Thanks”
“You want him to give you one more night” Mike laughed “What you trying to do get knocked up so you have some hold over him?” She didn’t answer
“There’s not enough alcohol on the damn planet to get me drunk enough to even think about going back with you” Chad paced the floor “And I wouldn’t do it to Chris” I walked out of the bathroom.
“What a new young plaything and damn Chad what are you doing with that? you need a real woman to deal with what goes down on tour” she threw her head back and laughed
“You know a real woman has the balls to tell someone to their face that they’re leaving and don’t want to be with them not take the bullshit chicken way out and leave a note” I smiled “Oh and honey believe me I’m the one going down on tour” Chad, Mike and Ryan looked at each other as Dan turned to me and raised his eyebrows.
“What pole did you pay her to get off?”
“Not the one that’s shoved up your ass” I laughed “I’m sick and tired of dumb assed people who haven’t got a fucking clue” I held my hands out.
“Oh you really don’t want to go there with me Honey” she started to walk over to me “I’ve heard all about the drinking the screwing and the heroin Stephanie”
“Oh My God you’re quoting a book” Mike groaned as Chad Moved to get in between us “Chris I take it back when I said no one will believe the book and your life are separate”
“It’s okay, I’m kinda getting used to it”
“Get the hell out before I have the cops arrest your ass for trespass” Chad almost growled at her making me take a step back, I knew he wouldn’t do anything like Arron but it was an automatic defense.
“Call me when you’re tired of banging that thing” she sneered at me one more time.
“Out” Chad snapped again taking her by the arm and basically frog marching her from the room. Mike stood behind me and rubbed my arms.
“Chris I swear I didn’t know Treana would bring her here hell I didn’t even know they still spoke” Ryan looked at me. I chewed the inside of my cheek. Chad walked back into the room.
“Guys can we call tonight a bust” he sighed pulling of the still soaked t-shirt
“Yeah” Mike nodded “Call us later” the three of them walked out of the room
“I’m so sorry Chris” I leant on the bathroom door frame.
“I would say it’s okay but I’m still shaking” I sighed he walked over to me “Am I such a bad person that this sort of shit keeps happening I get one good thing that makes me happy and then something has to come along and kick it in to touch” I walked back into the bathroom and started to drain the water from the tub
“I really don’t know what to say she threw me for a loop walking in here?” I sat on the edge of the tub
“Are you still in love with her?” I regretted asking as soon as the words left my mouth because I wasn’t sure I was ready for the answer.
“No” He lent on the vanity “I stopped loving her when she walked out on me” I looked at him “You trust me” I nodded there was something about Chad that I knew I could trust him and had trusted him with everything he came over and crouched down “can we try to get past this because all I want is to be here with you” he touched the side of my face
“Do I get to kick her ass if she comes back?” Chad started to laugh
“Sure” he nodded “and by the way, way to go with the quick comments” he stood up
“Yeah well after the one minute ten comment” I smiled “I know it was way longer than that”
“Come here” Chad pulled me to him “it’s going to hard’
“I hope” I laughed
“Oh you’re a smart ass arent’ you”
“Chad if I don’t laugh I’ll end up crying and I think in the past 3 months I’ve cried enough” he wrapped his arms round me and bent his head kissing me
“No more tears unless it laughing” he winked at me
