…………… "Hey Chris" a security guard called me over "William sent
me to get you it's time" I nodded Miranda hugged me
"Good luck" I nodded and smiled at her Dimitri wasn't even
looking at me I walked through the barrier and was taken
backstage. Lukas and William were stood talking.
"You ready for this?" William smiled.
"Hell yeah" I nodded "It's not turning out to be a good night
right now" I took the earpieces from the sound guy and put them
in as he handed me a microphone. They both looked at each other.
"The guys spoke to you earlier right" Lukas said leaning in to me
I nodded as the feeling of nervous nausea rose in me. "You still
okay with everything"
'Right now I'd leave and never come back" I headed for the steps
that lead to the back of the drummer riser.
"Looks like trouble for our new star and her Russian" William
sighed "I hope Elena doesn't get to involved"………….
…………….. Chad started to sing the beginning of Rock star with me
walking out onto the stage joining in the chorus.
"Miss Christine Sommers People" Chadd announced as I walked till
I was level with him both of us singing tonight felt bigger than
the one before I knew the areana was full. I'd seen the amount of
people in there. It got to the end of the song. "I think one
more" he looked at me "You have to practice" he looked back out
"This young lady and her band are supporting us when we head over
to Europe in a few weeks so I think she needs to feel what it's
like to Be Part of the Nickelback circus" the arena seemed to
shake with the noise. He bent to me "Because of you?"
"Sure" I nodded I looked down to where I'd been standing 15
minutes before Kyle and Emma were looking at me and shaking their
heads I scanned the rest of them Dimitri was gone. So was Niko my
heart sank as the music started again. I walked back to the
others after I'd finished Niko was back talking to Kyle and
Xander Miranda and Emma came over to me.
"You were awesome" Emma smiled nervously
"Where'd he go?" I looked from her to Miranda and back again.
"Home" I looked round at Niko.
"Okay and why?"
"He said he's down Chris" Niko looked down
"Done… is he for real"
"He overheard what Chad said to you about guys coming and going"
"Your borthers a dumb ass" I shook my head "Something was
bothering him all day?"
"He thinks your going to forget him once you hit Europe".
"I won't be long" I walked backstage and into a dressing room and
pulled out my phone.
Dimitri * Yeah
Me * you run at the first chance you get… you didn't even have
the balls to talk to me
Dimitri * have a good time Chris
Me * don't you dear hang up… what the hells wrong with you.
Dimitri * I'm not cut out to be the guy on the sideline I guess.
Me * so your damn ego's not up to competition… You lied to me
when I asked you if you were okay with it.
Dimitri * have fun In Europe.
Me * I trusted you with everything and this is what you do.
Dimitri * I won't tell anyone
Me * So when you told me you loved me it was to get my in bed.
Dimitri * Yes
The tone in his voice rocked me to the core, I was used again. I
sat down in a chair the ache that radiated from my chest was like
a knife. I don't know how long I was in there but the music had
stopped and there was more backstage nosie now the door opened
and William walked in I made him jump.
"Are you okay?" he narrowed his eyes to look at me I wiped my
eyes and got up as I heard Kyle's voice calling me
"Yeah just not a good day" I walked by him "William how soon can
we come out"
"Well the first Date you play is in Manchester in England in just
over three weeks we have you flying in two days before hand" he
said looking on hs phone "Why?"
"I was hoping it would be tomorrow" I ran my hand through my hair
I heard laughing and the voices of Nickelback and my friends in
"Next weekend you can all join us in Green Bay Wisconsin and go
from there and we can get you rehearsing everyday with us"
"That would be perfect" I nodded "Can you let the others all
know" he nodded I walked out of the room and right into Kyle.
"Hey you okay or do you want me to go Wisconsin on his Russian
"I'll survive… I have a habit of doing it" I hugged him
"Nice job again tonight" Mike high fived me
"Thanks… guys I'm sorry I'm skipping out but I feel rough".
'I'll take you" Niko stepped forward.
"Okay" I hugged everyone and followed him out to the parking lot
and to his car.
"He's a jerk Chris" He said after 10 minutes in the car.
"He told me he only said he loved me to get me into bed" I fought
back the tears. "You know I told him everyting about my past
things that my parents have no clue about and not even Kyle and
"I know and I don't know what's got into him"
"One of these heels if I see him tonight" I growled.
"Niko I thought he was different maybe he was my one… but if his
ego can't take the fact I'm good at what I do then I'm sorry your
brother can go screw himself" I snapped. We drove past the
parking lot to the school football field and his truck was there
along with Abby's car………………..
