……………….. Jess was sitting on my bed as I did my hair and make up.
“Okay shrimp what’s bugging you?” I sighed looking at her long face.
“Daddy told me you were going to go away for a while” she looked down here baby blue eyes filling with tears.
“Yeah he’s right” I knelt on the floor and lifted her chin “But I’ll call you every day I promise and I’ll get you something sweet from every country I go to”
“I’m going to miss you”
“I’ll miss you to Jess” I rested my forehead against hers “But this is a huge think I really want to do like whne you really wanted to swin with dolphins and Dad took you” she nodded “You saw me on the stage singing last night”
“Yeah with that guy from that band you like” I nodded
“He’s the one I’m going to be with as well as Alfie, Pete and Kerion” she sniffed and looked at me.
“What about Dimitri?”
“I’d love for him to come with me but I don’t know if he can” I sighed “He has school and football… but he might get to visit me”
“Can I visit you?”
“Well that’s up to Dad” I kissed her head “But I’d love if you did” the door knocked
“Honey Dimitri and the others are here” Dad put his head round the door. I stood up and picked up the heels My Mom had actually brought back from Italy 5 inch heels that were Scarlet red. I looked in the mirror at the Black t-shirt Miranda had gotten for me and smiled the skinny jeans fitting me perfectly. Jess and I walked out into the living room Mom was fawning all over, Jackson, Niko and Dimitri Xander looked at me and rolled his eyes. I mouthed I know at him.
“Hey guys” they all looked up “Miranda love the t-shirt” I giggled
“For some reason it suits you” she stuck out her tongue.
“Ready to grab dinner” Dimitri said dodging my Mom and coming over to me. “Sure… we’re out guys”
“What time will you be home?’ Mom called out trying to sound like a Mom.
“First thing in the morning?” Miranda called out “Everyones crashing at mine”
“Have fun then darlings… oh Christine” I groaned damn I was almost out of the door
“You guys go on I’ll catch you up” I turned round.
“So I take it he’s the Russian you were talking about” she grinned “His brothers cute”
“Mom stop” I moaned
“If you need birth control or anything like that you can come to me” I almost laughed in her face
“I think I got it covered” I turned on my heel
“Shoes look food on you”
“Night Mom” I walked down the drive Dimitri waiting in his truck with Xander and Miranda in the back the others already on the street waiting for us. we all went to the restaurant and had a blast over dinner with Jackson taking off one of my shoes and claiming they were stripper heels to go with the FMB’s by the time we got to the Arena it was already jammed with people but the ‘All access pass’ we had rocked as the security led us backstage.
This is better than yesterday” Niko giggled like a kid
“dude” I swatted him
“What you guys were good but this is Nickelback” he grinned.
“You’re an idiot you know that” Dimitri shook his head
“Happy Birthday” I looked round as Chad walked toward us. “I hear you got our gift”
“Yes and thank you doesn’t cover how much it means”
“I told you we believe in you guys” he smiled Joe can you show these guys to the VIP section
“We’re VIP’s” Niko jumped up and down and got a hail of Gibbs slaps for his effort.
“Chris you and the band we want 5 minutes with” Chad nudged me Dimitri kissed me
“I’ll go wait” he sighed.
“I won’t be long”
“it’s okay” He turned and walked away.
“Ishe pissed” Chad asked as we all walked to the dressing room.
“I don’t know he said he’s okay with me going away but…” I shrugged.
“You need to follow your dream” he said opening the door “I’m sorry to say this but guys come and go the true ones will stick around……………………
………….. We were let back into the VIP area I walked over to Dimitri
“Yeah I’m fine” he came up a little short
“Really doesn’t seem like it”
“I said I’m fine” he ran his hands through his hair.
“You want me to stay with you tonight?”
“You have to be up early in the morning so I’ll take you home after this”
“Okay ypu need to tell me what’s eating your ass this morning you were screwing the ass off me and now you don’t seem to give a damn” I snapped back Niko eyed the two of us.
“Yeah well I think you’re reading stuff into this” he pushed his hands into his pockets as the music started drowning out all hope of talking to him I felt something in the ribs Jackson bent down to my ear.
“Yeah I beg to differ” I shook my head Dimitri had moved away from me and was talking to Xander who looked madder than hell right now. I turned away and focused on the concert playing out in front of me…………………………..
