……………… Niko looked at me with a look of sheer shock and panic
“You have to be kidding” I groaned ‘Niko stop the car”
“Hell no you’re going to kick his ass”
“To damn right I’m going to kick his ass”
“I’m not stopping Chris… I know what he’s doing is…” Niko shook his heads trying to understand it “Look let me talk to him you have a lot to think about”
“Nikolai please, I need to talk to him if you want to you can stand between us” I begged. He groaned and turned the car around pulling into the parking lot. He hadn’t turned off the engine before I was out of the door and half way across the parking lot.
“Damn it Chris” Niko chased after me.
I walked round the corner Dimitri was sat on the bleachers with Reba, not Abby as I was expecting her hand was resting on his leg while his arm was resting across the back of where she was sitting.
“Abby maybe I could understand but her…” I snapped Dimitri got wide eyed when he saw me. “You walk out on me in the middle of me being on stage with Nickelback and for what to come here and meet with one of your best friends ex’s… I take it in Russia you have no damn boundaries when it comes to picking up the cast off skanks of your friends” he got to his feet.
“Knock it off Chris” he bit at me “Deal with the fact I don’t love you… yes I used you… now go to Europe”
“Yeah Chris… leave Dimitri never was in to the band chick” Reba grinned. I looked at Dimitri who was looking at the floor glancing up at me every now and then.
“You need to shut the hell up or I will lay your ass out” I pointed a finger in Reba’s face
“Really maybe you should go back to Wisconsin and the guy that beat you”
“Reba” Dimitri pulled her arm
“Oh I forgot even he screwed your best friend” I shot a look at Dimitri.
“You promised you wouldn’t say anything” he shook his head looking shocked “You know I’m glad I’m leaving because I don’t have to look at you” I pushed past Reba so I was face to face with Dimitri. “You might want to find someone that deserves this” I took off the necklace he’d given me and pulled the phone from my pocket “Here”
“You need your phone” he moaned as I pushed them into his hands
“I needed my boyfriend’s support, not some jumped up jock with ego problems”
“I’m Sorry… Мне так жаль”
“Save it… and stop with the damn Russian” my eyes were brimming with tears.
“Ты рывком” Niko pulled me away from Dimitri “Вы попались, как брат… Chris lets’ take you home”
“Chris I hope it all works for you” Dimitri called after me I didn’t even look back I didn’t want for him or Rea to see the tears that rolled down my face Niko opened the door for me and walked round to the drivers’ side and got in.
“You need a hug” he asked rubbing my arm. I nodded as he pulled me to him and hugged me
“Chris I don’t think he’d have told her anything about Arron” he moved back from me and started the engine.
“Will your Mom be okay with…”
“To Mom it’s business and I think to be honest shes going to rip him a new one… and ship him back to our Grandparents in Russia” I smiled a little “Don’t hold it against me what he did… I’m still a friend”
“I know” I closed my eyes “I hate the fact my 18th birthday was so good this morning and the things your Brother was saying and doing made me feel on top of the world and then my bubbles been burst”. We pulled into the driveway of my house. “Thanks for the ride”
“It’s okay… I’ll see you at school” I got out of the car and beant to look at him.
“Maybe… thanks again Niko” He waited till I got in the house before he pulled away.
“You’re home early” Mom walked from the kitchen with a h uge bowl of Popcorn “No Russian boy?”
“No Mom… I’m going to bed”
“Honey, can we talk”
“Not right now Mom… oh you’ll be getting a call from the tour manager sometime in the next couple of Days we’re going… or at least I’m going to leave next weekend for Green Bay” I pulled off the heels.
“Are you going to see Arron? You too made the cutest couple” she giggled.
“No Mom I hate him with a passion” I turned to walk to my room
“Christine you guys were with each other all the time then you move here and hook up with the first cute guy you meet” she sighed.
“ Mom right now you need to stop because there’s things that have happened that you couldn’t even imagine…” I snapped “You have no right to come in here and try to be a Mom you stopped being that two years ago… I don’t need to be brought by the gifts you send… sometimes I needed my Mom”……………………….
