............... We walked out of the school after spending most of the afternoon giving an impromptu show. All classes had been put on hold because we were back , so even the kids that didn’t like us were happy we were there.  Xander hip checked me


“So after that, you ready to go out to the beach?” I shook my head as my phone began to ring


“I’m beat jet lag and that stuff” I was making excuses now and it made me feel horrible for lying. I wanted the security that I felt when I was on tour, without having to face kids I used to go to school with the added hassle of Niko trying to get me to see his brother hadn’t helped at all. I stepped away from my friends and answered the phone



Me * hello

Lukas * hey how’s it going?

Me * Are you checking up on us?


I groaned and rubbed the back of my neck


Lukas * yep

Me * it sucks point blank.

Lukas * strange going back there?

Me * oh yeah, I think we’re all struggling a little being back here

Lukas * have you spoken to your Dad and  your sister?

Me * oh that one is a long story… I’ll fill you in at the weekend


I moved away from the crowd


Me * I’m getting out of here as soon as I can Lukas

Lukas * WHAT ? where you going?

Me * I booked a flight to Seattle, I’ll stay there till the weekend and then…

Lukas * why Seattle?

Me * close to where we’re going, and as far from here as I can get right now without leaving the country


There was a sigh at the end of the line


Lukas * okay, call me when you land and I’ll have security for you

Me * alright thanks Lukas

Lukas * hey, I want your head in the game Miss. Sommers, this is going to be one hell of an album you guys are going to make okay

Me * Yes Sir


I hung up


“You’re leaving” I jumped and turned round Miranda was standing there looking at me, her face full of confusion “But Chris you just…”


“I have to…” I held her hands “I can’t deal with this crap Mir… I miss you and Xander like crazy but I get here and you guys tell me about all the crap going on and Niko all but gets on his knees to ask me to get back with Dimi” I shook my head “I’ll admit I’m stinging from everything and just putting on smile for people”


“He did what?” she looked round for Nikolai


‘Look forget it… I need to get away… I need to talk to people that know what’s going on but don’t, if that makes sense”


“You mean Kellan?” a smile played on her lips


“No not Kellan” I smiled a little “he doesn’t know half of what’s happened and I like it that way” I held her hands tighter “I just spoke to Lukas and he agrees for me to do what I need to do to be at my best. I have to get my head right and now I feel in a fog”


“Okay” she murmured “I feel a failure as a friend”


“You’re not, far from it you’re my girl… you and Heidi. I need your sanity, but right now I want you to make sure Jess is okay when she gets home… and I know I’m leaving her in safe hands with you guys being part of her life”


“I’ll be her spare big sister, and Heidi and I will take her shopping when she gets back from her vacation” She hugged me “Call me” I nodded. Pete was standing by the waiting limo with Kerion and Alfie.


“Call us when you get there Lukas called and told us what you were doing” I nodded “Things are going to be okay Chris”


“I know” I hugged the three of them “I’ll see you at the weekend. Love you guys” They nodded and I  got in the car and closed my eyes as it pulled away from the school.


“To the hotel Miss. Sommers?” the driver asked


‘”No the airport please” I didn’t open my eyes till I felt the car stop and the warm breeze as the door was opened for me.


 I took my bag from the driver and walked inside to the check in desk and was shown to the first class lounge. It always felt strange the looks someone like I used to get from all of the business men looking at me in my tank top, jeans and boots. I flicked looked at my phone and selected a number and hit dial while I waited for the flight


 * Seattle Mercedes, this is Jon how can I help you

Me * I was checking that you took a delivery change scheduled for a SLR McLaren.

Jon * Er… yes, yes we did… looking at this it should be in by 7 tonight, it’s been re routed from LA, it should have gone to Tampa am I right?

Me * Yes it’s right… so it can be collected tonight

Jon * as long as the owner has the paperwork yes it can

Me * good, can you make sure the tank is filled

Jon * Yes Ma’am I can… is this for your husband

Me * no… I’ll be there to collect it at 8

Jon * very good



 I hung up I wasn’t up for making pleasantries for people. I looked at my phone as it vibrated


New Message***Kellan***Hey call me*** 4.06pm***



I hit the call button


Kellan * well damn that was fast

Me * I’d just got off a call when I got the message

Kellan * friends right?


Okay that was a strange thing to ask at the start of a conversation


Me * Yeah… why? because right now I’m not up for dealing with more crap

Kellan * okay I got photographed out on a date

Me * and?


I was tired and even Kellan was wearing on me


Kellan * well, they were asking about you and my dumb sister told them we were just… well just…

Me * It’s okay I get it. Don’t worry about it.

Kellan * I wanted you to hear it from me Chris, that’s all

Me * thank you

Kellan * it’s nothing serious….

Me * Kellan, we’d agreed that we weren’t going to go there when we have such crazy schedules,  didn’t we?

Kellan * I know

Me * It doesn’t’ mean we have to stop talking or…


“Excuse me Miss Sommers” a Steward walked over “Your flights’ boarding” I nodded and got up


Kellan * Where you going? I thought you were heading home

Me * Seattle, to treat myself and get away from crap


I walked over toward the door to the jet way


Kellan * you need a hug right now don’t you?

Me * that obvious?

Kellan * Yep and you don’t have the guys do you right now?

Me * nope just me

Kellan * don’t be alone Chris


He almost pleaded


Me * I’ll be okay don’t worry about it

Kellan * Yeah right, I care about you…

Me * thank you

Kellan * go dancing Chris

Me * on my own I don’t’ think so


I had to smile at that one


Kellan * got to a place like the Latin one we went to in Rome. I’m pretty sure someone will make you smile

Me * and my managers will kill me for going out without security

Kellan * okay think of Rome then and it’ll make you smile.

Me * you can always do that… make me smile when I don’t think I can

Kellan * I try my best

Me * I have to go, I’m getting the put the damn phone away looks from the cabin crew

Kellan * okay take care

Me * you too.


I hung up and turned my phone off and settled down on the flight……………………
