.................. The next few days at School Dimitri wasn't around and neither was Niko. We were going right from school to Lukas's house to rehearse and I was falling into bed dead asleep. My Mom was insisting on supervising the packing of my clothes for the 7 weeks we were going to be away. It was beginning to hit me now how big of a step this was, people at school were buzzing about it and kept stopping us in the hall and talking to us about it. We were being called up in front of the entire school on Thursday afternoon. I had been in Florida just over a month and it was insane everything that happened, both good and Bad. I walked down the hall listening to my I-pod trying to get the songs to sink in my head and stay there. My head was down and I walked into someone ending up on my ass on the floor.
"I'm sorry" I looked up as I pulled out the ear phones and groaned.
"You need some help" Dimitri offered me his hand I looked at it and disregarded it and got up.
I'm good I've learnt now I'm the only one than can pull myself up and get on with it" I dusted off my ass "Excuse me" I stepped round him pushing my head phones back in my ears and turning it up I walked away.
"I'm sorry Chris" he called after me I was oblivious to him talking. "Мне жаль ... я люблю тебя ... Я боюсь для вас оставить ... Я никогда не переставала любить тебя" he punched the wall next to the locker as I kept walking he slid down the wall his head on his knees the blood dripping down his fingers from the force of the blow……………
……………. We were all on the stage at the front of the school as the Principal droned on about how proud he was to have some of his students taking to the world wide stage I scanned the crowed Niko was sitting with Jackson Xander and Miranda all of them grinning. I just wanted to get home and go to dinner with Jess and get an early night.
I think we need one last song before you guys wave us goodbye" the Principal beamed. Mr Sorenson ran on and handed Pete a guitar and nudged me beaming I looked at Pete who shrugged I whispered something to him he looked across the to where Dimitri had just walked in his hand wrapped in a towel. He sat down and started to play Pinks Sober. I started to sing myh voice stronger than it had ever been with all the practice I'd had.
I don't want to be the girl that laughs the loudest
Or the girl that never wants to be alone
I don't want to be that call at 4 o'clock in the mornin'
Cause I'm the only one you know in the world that won't be home
Ah Sun is blindin'
I stayed up again
Oh, I'm findin
That's not the way I want my story to end
I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain inside, you're my protection
But how do I feel this good sober
I don't want to be the girl that has to fill the silence
The quiet scares me 'cause it screams the truth
Please don't tell me that we had that conversation
'Cause I won't remember, save your breath
'Cause what's the use
Ah, the night is callin'
And it whispers to me softly, "Come and play"
But I, I am fallin'
And if I let myself go I'm the only one to blame
I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain inside, you're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?
Comin' down, comin' down, comin' down
Spinnin' round, spinnin' round, spinnin' round
I'm looking for myself, sober
Comin' down, comin' down, comin' down
Spinnin' round, spinnin' round, spinnin' round
Looking for myself, sober?
When it's good, then it's good, it's so good til' it goes bad
'Til you're trying to find the you that you once had
I have heard myself cry 'never again'
Broken down in agony, just tryin' to find a friend. Oh, oh
I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain inside, you're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?
I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain inside, you're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?
Everyone was on there feet by the time I finished the song.
"Well I think we can see why you guys are getting the chance you are and all of Riverveiw High is behind you" The principal smiled. We all walked off the stage I grabbed Kerion's arm
"I'm going out this way I need to go spend time with Jess"
"We'll cover for you… see you at the airport" I hugged him now the excitement was building and I pushed thougths of Dimitri to the back of my mind as I got in my car and left school behind. My phone rang.
Me * hey
Mirnada * oh you should be here
Me * I have to see Jess
Miranda * I know but Dimitri has busted his hand open
Me * okay.
Miranda * over you
Me * what?
Mirnada * he said he saw you and tried to talk to you and you walked away.
Me * I was listening to my I-pod I didn't hear him
Miranda * it just took Jackson Niko and Xander to wrestle him in the car to get him to the hospital
Me * Miranda I'm sorry but I have one thing I have to do tonight and I'm good with people letting me down and walking over me but I'm not going to do it to Jess… tell him… tell him… in fact Miranda don't tell him anything"
Miranda * okay… I'll see you in the morning at the airport.
Me * sure
I hung up and rubbed the back of my neck, why the hell couldn't I shake the butterflies every time his name was mentioned. I dialed Alfie's number.
Alfie * hey Chris
Me * I need a favor………………..
