How will the constant moving with the tour affect the finally back on track relationship with her and Dimitri and what suprises will happen.................
................ Flying, some people love it some people hate it, but when everyone on board the aircraft is as good as family then you have to submit and love flying and when the guys outnumber the girls at least 50 to 1 it can be a little crazy.
“Damn we’re in England” Alfie threw his arm over my shoulder “We’re actually in England”
“Dude you were here with your family last summer” Kerion chuckled as we waited to get off the plane
“I know but that was running round in London visiting family” He laughed “We’re here supporting Nickelback”
“You know I don’t think that’s really sunk in yet” Pete handed me my bag from the over head locker “a month ago we were all in high school”
“Chance of a lifetime guys” I sighed as I stepped off of the plane onto the jet way
“Welcome to Manchester” the girl standing there smiled giddy that the guys from Nickelback had already got off the flight
“Thanks” Kerion beamed we followed everyone else toward immigration.
“The bags are all being taken to the hotel” Elena walked back toward us “You guys all okay after the flight?”
“Yes Ma’am” Alfie nodded he’d finally got used to her thick Russian accent
“Good” She caught my chin in between her thumb and forefinger “Chris?”
“I’m fine” I shrugged “I didn’t get much sleep with the rowdy game of poker going on with these guys and the Sound techs”
“And you had to say good bye to Dimitri” she smiled a little at the thought of her son
“Yes Ma’am” I nodded “and my sister”
“Call them a little later”
“I will” I sighed looking at me watch “They’re what 5 hours behind us”
“Yes but I think calling them at 1.30 in the morning wouldn’t be a good thing when they both have school” She let go of my chin and walked off shouting something to one of the crew.
“You’re going to call him as soon as we get to the hotel aren’t you” Alfie laughed putting his head on my shoulder.
“Oh yeah” I laughed. We walked out the crew was getting onto buses as a Limo pulled away obviously with the band inside
‘You think that’ll be us one day?” Kerion whistled
“If we work hard and people like us then why not” I nudged his arm “and you don’t keep me up or I will kill you and we’d then need to replace you”
“Oh thanks” he groaned as I got on the bus
“Chris” I stopped and looked round as the limo had stopped and Alfie was shouting me. I got off and looked at him.
“Hey, you guys we need to talk to you” Chad put his head out of the window before pushing open the door. I walked over and got in after the others all of us crammed in there with Nickelback and there management team of Simon, Lukas and Elena.
“Okay I think there’s way more room in the bathroom on the airplane” I groaned as I squeezed in between Kerion and Lukas.
“Yeah maybe we should have waited till we got to the hotel” Simon sighed
“No we want to talk now before we get swamped with interviews and everything else” Mike said shaking his head.
“You guys need to get into the hotel shower change grab food and then you’ll be heading to Arena” Chad looked round the four of us “You need to sound check as soon as possible because while we’re here you and I” he pointed at me “are going to be working on a song and the other’s will be working with each of you”
“Chad we don’t have the time?” Lukas sighed as he texted with one hand and held his other phone to his ear.
“We’ll make the time for these guys” Chad said firmly “We took the chance on them and we’ll do everything we can to make it work” he looked at me “How’s the throat?” he pointed to the fading bruises on my neck
“Better” I nodded feeling a little self conscious knowing everyone in the car right now knew that just over two weeks ago I’d been attacked by my ex in a parking lot of a restaurant.
“I want to hear you do ‘Side of a bullet’ right”
“Yes Sir” I nodded I knew he’d picked that one because it pushed my voice
“And the new song that Alfie wrote”
‘But we haven’t finished it” Kerion looked at him
“I know but I’ve heard the range that Chris has to get on that and if she’s struggling with it we can get her throat looked at before the gig in two days time” the driver pulled into the underground parking garage at the hotel and got out opening the door and getting Alfie falling out in a heap at his feet.
“You have just over an hour” Elena called after us as we got out. We finally got up to our rooms I lay on the bed and pulled my phone from my bag.
“Hey Chris you want first shower” Pete asked putting his head round the door.
“No you go I’m calling Dimi” he nodded and closed the door as I dialed it was answered on the first ring
