................... "Happy birthday by the way" Dimitri murmured
as he handed me my boots
"Thank you" he kissed me
"I have a little something for you" I looked at him as we walked
up to the house.
"Now I talk from firsthand experience it's not a little
something" I paused for a moment and then groaned as I started to
"One hot night and you're…"
"In love with a hot Russian" I put my hand on the door handle
"Love you too" he chuckled as we walked into the kitchen
"Happy Birthday" was yelled at me
"Thank you" I smiled as Elena handed me a coffee
"How come you guys are all here?" I sat down as Dimitri rubbed my
"Business meeting" Elena smiled putting plates of eggs and
waffles down in front of all the guys. "eat you need the
strength" she nudged Dimitri, he looked at here "секс потребляет
"Mama really" He turned beet red as Niko snorted Orange juice
down his nose.
"Mama Leave the guy alone" Niko laughed wiping his face
"I was just saying" I looked at Alfie who just shrugged as the
door bell rang Elena walked out of the kitchen coming back in
with Dad in tow.
"Happy birthday honey" he kissed my cheek
"Dad" I pulled a face
"Don't worry all of our parents are coming" Pete nudged me his
mouth full of waffle. Within 30 minutes all of our parents were
there apart from my Mother. Lukas and Simon walked in with a guy
I'd seen walking round the arena yesterday.
"Okay let's take this into the dining room" Elena said her
demeanor becoming totally business. We followed her she directed
the four of us. Alfie, Me, Pete and Kerion to the one end of the
table out parents sat on one side with Lukas and the others next
"So you were all there last night to see this kids do something
that not many people do" Lukas started looking round "and to
impress one of the biggest bands in the world to the level that
these guys did it means they are something very special"
"We're all very proud of them" Alfie's Mom smiled looking at all
of us "Christine coming to the school 3 weeks ago has certainly
made a huge inpact"
"3 weeks you guys have only been playing together for three
weeks" the new guy shook his head
"Yes Sir" I nodded I moved from Wisconsin 3 weeks ago he pulled
out a phone and left the room coming back a couple of minuites
"Chad is even more impressed now" he sat down "By the way I'm
William Jones I'm the tour manager for Nickelback" We all smiled
at him nervously "We have a proposition for all of you"
"Well we have songs written by the band that they haven't used he
pulled out a stack of papers and put them down for a price they
are yours" William looked at all of us
"We'd love to but we can't afford something like that" I sighed
"Let me finish" he leant on the table and handed some more papers
to Elena "The band are willing to give them to you ofr 10%
royalties form sales and you have 3 weeks to get them down and up
to the standard that you have on the songs you already know"
"So what does that mean" Pete's Dad said shaking his head
"These guys have three weeks to pull the songs together we have
them on a C.D. he scooted it across the table Alfie stopped it
"Then they will all be flown out to Europe to support Nickelback
for a month" It felt like all the oxygen had been sucked out of
the room "We know they are all seniors in high school so they
will have 4 hours of tutoring per day while they are gone and as
they are all now 18 they don't need a chaperone apart from Elena"
he smiled "they will be signed to the record label and given
every opportunity to make it in this business talent like theirs
doesn't come along too often… we want to be the ones to make it
happen. Nickelback have already said they're going to be big
brothers for these guys". I don't think I took in anything of
what he was saying I still swear I was going to be woken up from
this crazy dream at any minute…………….
