................. We pulled away from the beach and headed back
toward home. I was looking out of the window.
"Sharp tongue you've got" Dimitri sighed
"You haven't heard the half of it" I shook my head "Wait till I
get really pissed" I expected him to swing left into the
neighborhood where I lived but instead he carried on. "Or I get
taken somewhere I wasn't expecting" I glared at him
"We're going to talk like I said we were earlier" he said flatly
"And I want to go home I feel like crap"
"I'll take you home as soon as we're done" he looked at me as we
hit a stop light "Trust me"
"Hmmm" I huffed turning and looking out of the window again we
drove to the football field at school he got out and walked round
and opened the door for me. "Nice feel safer on home ground do
"I have duct tape is the sarcasm keeps escaping" he smiled
"Better be a damn big roll" I muttered as he pushed open the gate
and walked to the 50 yard line.
"Come on" I walked over to him
"Talk about dramatic"
"No if you look" he turned me to the bleachers "the 50 yard line
is where you seemed the most at ease I think I've seen you since
you moved here" I realized it was the same place that the stage
had been set up the night before "and the field is one of my
"What's Abby going to think to you being here with me?"
"I don't care" he shrugged
"Really you and her seemed pretty cozy at the beach" I pushed my
hands in my pockets "But then what's it to me"
"You like me"
"You have a high opinion of yourself"
"I know you like me because you can't stop looking at me" he
smirked. Okay he was infuriating right now "the same way I
struggle to stop looking at you when you're around… that same way
I get so wound up when Niko gets near you"
"I like Niko he's a good guy"
"Why because he didn't bang the ass off you when he had the
chance" I looked down
"Because he didn't take advantage of me when I was angry and
upset" I snapped "and you know it takes someone with respect to
back off like"
"Respect this is Niko he doesn't know the meaning of the word"
"Nice to know you have such appreciation for your brother, but
then look at you and Abby you and her are on again off again and
then you come round pretending to like me what is it some ego
trip you're on because your brother can get the girl you think
you need to try as well" I was almost yelling at him he took a
"I'm done with Abby" he shook his head. "We're done" he looked at
me as he said it "I told her we were done because there's no way
I'm going to deal with some other guys kid" He rubbed the back fo
his neck "and I told her I'm interested in someone else"
'Did you tell her who?"
"Why do you think Reba went after you" he smiled nervously
"So I have you to thank for the slap?" I raised an eye brow
"Er… I'm not taking all the blame for that" he pulled a face
"what you said to her had a lot to do with the slap"
"So it was okay that she slapped my but I couldn't retaliate"
"I saw the fist that wasn't going to be a slap"
"And your point is"
"It's not fair"
"Hey guess what Dimitri lifes not fair but you deal with it" I
felt my phone start to ring I pulled it from my pocket and
Me * yep
Arron * please don't take it out on Brit
Me 8 are you kidding me what is it with jerks and bitches tonight
Arron * for me
Me 8 I can't believe you just said that
Arron * I took her to bed
Me * Arron I've gone past the stage of giving a damn that you and
my best friend had sex… I'm past the fact I've lost all trust in
people… I'm sick of being the punch bag for you when you couldn't
"Chris give me the phone" Dimitri mouthed I shook my head "Chris"
he held out his hand I turned my back on him
Me * Arron I hate you for what you did. I hate you more than one
person should hate anyone…
The phone was pulled away from my ear and Dimitri held me out at
Dimitri * Dude get the message she's not your girl any more
Arron * who the hell…
Dimitri * shut the hell up unless you want me to fly up there and
kick your ass
Arron * yeah right
Dimitri * you want to mess with Chris then you have to come
through a couple of really pissed off Russians to do it… Leave
her alone and go back to banging who ever it is you dumped Chris
Arron * you don't know what you're talking about
Dimitri * I don't need to know but when I see her upset then the
prick that's causing it is on really think ice and believe me if
I ever see you I will take you down… now leave Chris alone"
He closed the phone and let go of me making me stumble into him
as the resistance was gone between us
"Okay now you want to fill me in on the Dairy boy" Dimitri asked
pushing my phone into my pocket.
"Are you always such a egotistical arrogant son of a bitch" I
pushed him backwards "When I say no it means now I was dealing
"That's why he's called you what twice today and upset you"
Dimitri snapped back "Yeah Chris you were really handling
