……………… I pulled on my favorite black Bikini and grabbed a towel
from my bathroom and headed back to the kitchen
"You both still here" I looked from Xander to Dimitri and back
"Sorry you're stuck with us" Xander smiled "And Miranda should be
here in about 5 minutes
"Then when you're done in the pool we'll head to the BBQ" Dimitri
"I'm not going to be able to say no am I?" I moaned
"Nope" Dimitri Chuckled as the front door knocked, Xander walked
over and pulled it open.
"Okay one not the way I wanted to see your bedroom" Miranda
giggled handing Xander some swim shorts and you really need to
get the sweaty gym bag out of there" she kissed him. "And you"
she walked over to Dimitri and handed him some as well "Your
Mom's having a shit fit and from the amount of Russian I know I
think she'll be in church for the next month with all that
cussing" Dimitri started to laugh
"Where was Niko?"
"There trying to calm her down, Your Dad went into work to get
away from doing anything" she smirked "Hey Chris, You got
somewhere I can get changed?"
"Sure you can use my room" I walked with her down the hall and
pushed open the door "There you go?"
"Thanks" she smiled her eyes twinkling as I stepped back into
"Oh No you can use Jess's room" I pushed him toward it.
"Chris you're a spoil sport" he pouted.
"No I changed my sheets yesterday I don't want to have to change
them again" I laughed walking back to the kitchen as Dimitri
walked out of the bathroom. "Ready for the pool?" he asked
opening the door to the outside.
"You don't need to stay here if your Mom needs you" I sighed
putting my towel down on the chair
"I'm fine she gets flustered before we have a party" he shrugged
"I'll bring in some ice and she'll be happy and I'm not going
anywhere in case jerk boy calls again"
"Why I went mad at you last night was…" I stopped and looked at
him "Arron likes a challenge and that's basically what you handed
to him doing what you did on the phone"
"Well if that's what he wants he's got it" Dimitri held out his
"I don't need another meathead" I sat on the edge of the pool my
feet in the cool water
"So I'm a meat head?" Dimitri scoffed
"You're acting like one" I looked back at him the scratch and
purple bruise caught my eye "How'd you get that?"
"Some hot head slammed a gate closed as I was about to run
through it" he looked down at the mark and then at me.
"No you're not you're trying not to laugh" he chuckled "so for
that" he came behind me and pushed me into the pool.
The coolness felt so good I pushed myself to the bottom and lay
down. I felt the water shift and the sound of someone jumping in
as two hands grabbed my arms roughly and hauled me back to the
"Are you okay?" the panic was obvious in Dimitri's voice as his
grip lessened and his hands moved to hold my waist pulling me
close to him.
"I'm fine" I nodded
"You were lay in the bottom of the pool after I pushed you in"
his eyes were searching my face for signs of distress
"I like to do that when I'm stressed it feels like nothing can
bother you when you're down there"
"You had me worried" his face softened
"I'm fine I promise" My phone started to ring I pulled out of his
grip and got out of the pool he leant on the side watching me.
"Is it him again?" Dimitri snapped as I picked it up.
"No" I smiled hitting the speaker button and sitting on the edge
of the pool
