……………….. I fought to get out of the grip of whoever was holding me.
"Reba go the hell away" the voice had a hard edge that pulled out the slight accent more prominent
"She attacked me" Reba spat angrily
"Chris said what the rest of us wanted to say a long time ago" Niko shouted at her he wasn't the one holding me.
"Abby you can both leave" Dimitri snapped his hot breath gasped in my ear.
"Let me go" I said trying to pull away from Dimitri
"Like hell you'll go all cheese head psycho and beat the crap out of her" he hised at me.
"And your point"
"She can leave and we don't have to worry about her and I like holding you"
"Really Abby must like it when you do it to her as well" I bit before I could stop myself. I flet his grip loosen on me
"we need to talk" he murmured
"Dimi" I heard Abby shout
"You'd better go see what she wants" I rolled away from him.
"Chris" he pleaded loud enough for just me to hear.
"Xander I think you need to find a ride home" I said getting to my feet "I want my car"
"Don't go" Jackson sighed shaking his head "Don't let her ruin the night" he held my hands
"You think I really feel like staying here after I just got slapped" I groaned.
"If you love us you will" Alfie called out as Pete held out his guitar.
"And you promised to sing some more" Miranda said grabbing my hand and pulling me toward her Niko came over and put his arm round me.
"Come on I'll take you home in a while" he looked to where Dimitri was talking heatedly to Abby and Reba between the dunes.
"He should have let me kick her ass" I groaned as Xander looked at me.
"Yeah and we'd have been picking up pieces of cheerleader from the beach" he sighed "I remember you getting into it with that chick on the snowmobile trail"
"Well that bimbo was asking for a slap in the mouth" I sat down between Miranda "She cut me off and caused you to hit the ditch" I shrugged
"And when we had to explain to the cops why she was out cold?" He raised his eye brows.
"Well she could of hit the tree" I pouted.
"Yeah" he shook his head. Dimitri walked back over Niko put his arm round his brothers shoulder and said something to him both of them looked at me for a moment making me feel self conscious.
"Sing" Pete handed me his guitar.
"Okay my choice" I sighed taking the guitar. I began to play times like these by the Foo Fighters.
I… I'm a one way motorway
I' m the road that drives away
Follows you back home
I… I'm a street light shinning
I'm a white light blinding bright
Burning off and on
It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again
I… I'm a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky to hang
The stars upon tonight
I… I'm a little divided
Should I stay or runaway
Leave it all behind
It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again
It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again
It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again
"Is that what moving here is" Jackson asked as I stopped singing
"What?"
"a way to start over?" Alfie added
"You got all that from a song" I chuckled handing the guitar back to Pete
"The song, the phone call, the guy you deleted from your phone" Miranda shrugged.
"Am I so easy to read" I smiled looking round at everyone.
"No we're good at picking up on stuff"
"Yeah well sometimes it makes more sense to shut out the past" I got up Xander walked over to me and pulled me away from the others.
"Okay I think there's more to this Move than just your Dad's job"
"Yeah there is" I nodded "But I don't… I mean… Xander it's hard really hard okay"
"Chris we've always been close" he begged
"And we still are" I sighed but sometimes it's too hard to explain things to the people you love without hurting them or letting them down" I kissed his cheek
"Chris do my parents know?" I shook my head
"Grandma and Grandpa don't even know Xand… even my mom doesn't know" I felt tears forming behind my eyes all I wanted to do was be home curled in my bed away from everyone and all the questions.
"You need that ride?" Niko walked over to both of us.
"Hell yeah" I nodded
"Niko" Xander looked at him with the are you kidding look
"Hey don't worry I'll look after her" Niko reached for my hand "Tell the others we said good night" we walked across the sand to the parking lot.
"You think you might open up to anyone and let them in?" I jumped as Dimitri slid off the hood of his truck my hand still in Niko's
"You think you might decide if you want to play happy families with Abby or just keep screwing with my head" I spat at him I was to tired and down to care.
"Hey Niko I'll take her home" Dimitri said looking at his brother. There was a stream of Russian coming from the two of them.
"Do you know how rude that is" I groaned my head was starting to pound now.
"Sorry" Niko turned me to look at him "You'll be okay" he kissed my forehead "Tomorrow we're having a family BBQ Xander and some of the others are coming so you tag along okay"
"But" he held up his hand
"D give her the directions when you drop her off" Niko said ignoring my plea
"Sure" Dimitri opened the door to his truck as he did earlier and waited for me to be in before closing the door and walking round to the drivers side……………………
