................. "Come with me" he led me to the side of the
summer house up a flight of stone steps that brought us back out
at the side of the house. He pushed open the door and walked
"Where are we going?" I sniffed trying to calm myself down in
case anyone saw us.
"My room" he walked up the stairs I stopped at the bottom "Chris
you can sort yourself out in my bathroom in private without
anyone disturbing you"
He walked back to me and took my hand and led me back up to a
long landing with doors on each side we walked along to the last
one on the left he opened the door and walked in. Everything was
midnight blue I lighted with white the thin drapes were billowing
from the breeze blowing in the noise of the party drifting up
from the garden. The furniture was heavy wood that looked old
including the intricate wrought iron head board of his bed that
were all vines and leaves entwined. The pale floor reflecting the
light as I looked round.
"The bathrooms over there" he pointed to a door "I'll be here
when your done"
"I need my bag" I said quickly realizing if I needed to fix my
make up then I'd need it "I left it in the kitchen"
"I'll get it" he hurried out of his room and closed the door I
walked into the bathroom and looked at my reflection and
…………….. Dimitri picked up my bag from the kitchen counter and
headed back up the stairs my phone started ringing he pulled it
out. And shook his head.
Arron * Baby
Dimitri * who the hell do you think you are
Arron * oh you again get the hell off of my girls phone
Dimitri * your girl! You still thing she's your girl…? Dude
Arron * she is mine
Dimitri * why so you can knock her round again
Arron * go to hell you don't know anything
Dimitri * I know everything I need to know… I know if I ever see
you you'd better run
Arron * I'm scared… Chris will come back to me she knows what we
had was good.
Dimitri * it was till you started hitting her and you got her
pregnant and screwing her best friend how low can you actually
get… I fact I know how low you can get and you raped Chris and
you killed your baby.
I pulled open the bedroom door and looked at Dimitri the look on
his face was scary how angry he was
Dimitri * I swear if you even think of getting in touch with her
I will come and go to town on your ass
Dimitri looked up and caught sight of me watching him, his eyes
fixed on mine
Arron * you think your tough?
Dimitri * I know I can take down a piece of crap like you… Leave
Chris alone there's more than one guy her prepared to look after
her and love her the way she deserves
He ended the call without taking his eyes from me.
"Why didn't you just ignore it?" I asked shaking my head "Why
couldn'tr you let it go"
"Because of everything you told me out there" he pointed outside
"You think I can let that go"
"I shouldn't have told you" I put my head against the door frame
"You should… you did" he walked over to me and made em look at
him. "He will never ever get the chance to come near you and if
he does he's going to have to come through me"
"You still want to be around?"
"Do you see me going anywhere?" he handed me my bag I turned and
walked back into his room and put it on his bed. "You let me in"
"I told you things about me that I never wanted to have to tell
anyone" I murmured
"And I'll never tell anyone" he turned me round to face him "God
Chris please drop the guard around me" he pulled me to him "I'd
never treat you like that… I could never treat you like that"
"Can I get a hug" I stammered, I needed to feel safe for a while.
A smiled spread across Dimitri's face as he wrapped his arms
round me he rested his head against my hair. He pulled back and
put his hands on the side of my face. He hesitated before he
moved closer his door knocked and opened without him saying
"Dimitri Mama's looking for you" Nas giggled. Dimitri put his
forehead against mine
"Anastasia" he groaned.
"Sorry but be thankful it was me and not her you know she never
knocks" she grinned "now go see what Mama wants while I talk to
your girlfriend" Dimitri and I looked at her.
"I'm not his…" he squeezed my hand stopping me mid sentence
"How about you go see what Mama wants and leave me with Chris" He
"Because Papa wants you" Elena appeared in the doorway behind
Nas. I wanted the world to swallow me right here right now. I was
stood so close to Dimitri you couldn't see daylight between us,
we were in his bedroom next to his bed. "So down stairs" he
looked at me
"Go finish sorting yourself out" he smiled "and I'll be
"Okay" he waited until I walked into the bathroom his Mom and his
sister were standing looking at him.
"Stop" he moaned. As the both smiled
"She's nicer than that last thing you brought home" Nas laughed
"I never liked that Abby" Elena shook her head "I still think you
should find a nice Russian girl" she sighed wistfully
"Oh god" he put his arms round both of them "look give Chris some
time and don't go all Russian on her and smoother her"
"Hey I have enough to deal with keeping Niko away from Chris" he
"Don't fight with your brother over a girl" Elena chastised
"We're not… he's trying to be a friend to her"
"So whers the singing girl?" Dimirti's dad smiled as the got to
the bottom of the stairs your friends have been telling me all
"She'll be down in a while… can we take this outside so I have
the support of my friends instead of hassle from my
