…………… “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” Niko shrugged.
“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 the hall
“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 ass”
“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 Emma”
“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………………..
