Chapter Twenty Five - Charlie’s POV
We had arrived back to the hotel and had to take two elevators to get up to our floor. I was in the lift with Brax, Chester, Liam, Mace, Shane, Kendall and Mark, and for whatever reason Chester was moving around like a maniac. "What the hell is wrong with you Monkey?"
When I asked everyone nodded and agreed. "If this elevator doesn't hurry up I am going to shit on the floor."
"So, you're going to take that shit to another level?" When Brax asked the boys all burst out laughing.
"Same shit, different story." Shaking my head I bit the corner of my lip, a vain attempt to keep the creeping grin at bay when Liam chimed in.
"Jesus Christ you guys, do you ever stop with that?" We finally got to our floor and everyone headed to their rooms to get changed before deciding they would come to ours. "Baby, why is it always our hotel suite that gets trashed by those fuckers?"
"How else would Chester listen in on us if we had to go back to our own room to get it on?"
"Brax! Are you shitting me right now?"
"Wanna have a quickie while we wait?"
"No baby, I want to have crazy, dirty sex when we are wasted later."
Brax walked closer to me and pulled me into him, his hand gravitated to my backside making sure he filled his hands with my cheeks. "I love the sound of that, how dirty do you wanna get cutie?"
"Whatever you are thinking Batman, you haven't gone far enough."
"You're such a tease. I'm holding you to that later."
When I said there was one thing he could do for me, Brax was all ears. "Come wash my back?" It didn't take any convincing because as quick as the Flash, he picked me up, threw me over his shoulder and smacked my ass hard. "Mmm so it's a caveman kind of night?"
"You're the one that wanted to get dirty cutie, I just want to rise to the challenge."
"Oh, you have never had a problem rising babe." We got showered and changed and headed back out to the lounge. I grabbed the weed and decided to roll up while Brax fell into the overstuffed couch next to me and started chopping up. We were comfortable on the couch sorting out some smokes for everyone when the rest of the group filed in.
"Aww don't they make the cutest married couple. Sat rolling their blunts together in their pyjamas at nine o'clock at night. You turned into a bitch bro!"
As the rest agreed with Chester and continued to jeer Brax he turned to face them. "As opposed to the guy who nearly shat himself in the elevator. Toilet trained yet asshole?"
When I started throwing them a blunt each we both laughed at Shane's over excitement "Yes! Godzilla spliffs ala Midget."
Chester started singing 'Did you ever know that you're my hero' as Brax pushed him towards the veranda "Get the fuck outside Bette, and stop trying to hit on my fiance." We laughed at them as they headed outside and I went to the kitchen to get a bottle of wine for us girls.
"Wait here ladies, I will be right back." I went out to Brax and whispered that Mace and I were going to have a chat with Kendall so we would be over in Liam and Mace's suite for some privacy. I gave him a quick kiss and was rewarded with a love tap to the butt as I went back inside. Just as we opened the door the other band was arriving and Brett looked just as hyperactive as Chester. "Oh No! What did you do?" When April and Chris said we knew him too well already it wasn't hard. "Chester makes the same face when he's excited about something."
His excitement spilled over as Brett explained, at a million miles an hour. "This hotel has a freaking games room downstairs! Bowling alley, arcade games, pool tables, playstation and xbox consoles, and none of you fuckers told me?"
Of course this had Chester perk up "You're shitting me?"
"No Chester, you can shit your pants all by yourself." When we all laughed at Liam's comment April asked if she wanted to know the story behind that?
Mark said no and I waved them off turning back to April. "We are just heading across the hall to have a couple of spliffs and a bottle of wine. Bit of girl time away from these rascals, you gonna join us babes?"
"Love to! Thanks for the invite." Chester yelled out, askin April why she didn't want to sit with him? "You couldn't sit straight if your life depended on it."
"But I bet I would have you wiggling for me baby." He winked at her and we all pissed ourselves laughing.
The girls and I grabbed a bottle of wine each and headed across the hall. We grabbed some glasses out of the cupboard and headed out on to the balcony to spark up. I figured I didn't want to drag it out too long, and Kendall had become a good friend to me since the day she helped us out without having to. I cared for her and I wanted to make sure she was alright. "Come on K, what's wrong babes? I know you and I know something is wrong."
When she asked if she was that transparent Mace shook her head and replied. "Not so much hunny, but we have spent so much time with you to know better."
"Sorry, I didn't mean to be a downer, but I appreciate that you all care."
I felt it was only right to let her know. "Funnily enough it was Monkey that noticed it first, he was worried about you babe." When April said he really was a good guy deep down we all agreed. "He's the best babe, you couldn't ask for a more loyal friend. So what's wrong babe? What's worrying you?"
When she said Shane, Mace was quick to point out it is always the men. "We just had a massive fight yesterday morning that's all. We are still being a bit stubborn with each other, or sulking whichever way you want to look at it."
"What happened babe? You don't have to tell me, I understand you don't really know me as well as you do Charlie and Mace. I just know sometimes when I am feeling like you, a passive ear helps."
"Thanks April, I really appreciate that. And I am glad we all got the chance to meet you." We all took a few draws on our spliffs waiting for Kendall to find her footing. None of us wanted to push her, but we did want to help. She was family to Mace and I, just like the rest of the guys. "Shane wants me to relocate to the city permanently. He wants us to live together."
Mace said that was a great thing, but something struck me in the way she kept saying Shane wants. "What is it that is worrying you babe? I can see in your eyes."
"I guess it is just fear. It is a long way to move away from everyone and everything I know. And what if it doesn't work? It's such a hard life, I wonder how you two do it sometimes. It's easy when we are apart because I don't know all the in and out."
I asked, but I already knew. "You mean the groupies don't you babe?"
Kendall nodded as she dropped her eyes into her lap. Mace reached out and took her hand as she spoke. "Babe, I can tell you the groupies never change, but I have known these guys since they started and they have changed. Shane is ridiculously into you, he doesn't even look sideways anymore."
"Really?" I couldn't help but smile warmly at Kendall's shock.
"Oh babe, Mace is right. Shane adores you. He is always telling us about you when we see him, you can see how excited he is when he has spoken to you, or if something good happened you are the first one he wants to speak to. He's so in love with you Kendall."
"Do you want to move to be with him?" Kendall nodded yes in response to April's question. "Then don't let fear hold you back from something that could be amazing, gorgeous. Regret is worse than fear."
We finished the rest of our spliffs while Kendall thought about it before looking over at Mace and I. "You think you girls could handle seeing me all the time?"
"Are you shitting me? Babe, we need to balance out the numbers. And while probably not as much as Shane, Charlie and I miss you when you head back. Don't doubt that for a second."
"I love you girls. And you April are definitely coming out to visit, we have to stay in touch."
"Absolutely we will. You girls are amazing and I don't want to lose touch with you." We sat around having a laugh and girl time before we decided to head back and make sure our boys were behaving.
When we got back to the suite, we were shocked to see it empty. "What the fuck?"
"Please don't tell me they have taken their clothes off again and gone on a nudie run?" We all chuckled when Mace asked and shrugged her shoulders. Nothing would surprise me.
I took out my phone and decided to ring Brax and it barely rang when I heard him "Hey cutie!"
"Where are you boo?"
"Downstairs at the games room babe. Come down, we can play bowling or you can just play with my balls?"
"Shit Brax, you've already had a skin full, haven't you?"
"I'll take your skin all over mine if you are offering?"
"Goodbye sex pest, we are coming down now."
"Good, then I can make you come all over again." I shook my head as I said I was hanging up. "Wait, quick question."
"What colour panties are you wearing and what style?"
Blowing out a huge breath of air, I said goodbye and hung up when Mace asked if it was sex pest mode? "Correct."
As we went to head down to join the bands, Kendall stopped us. "I want to say thank you first. You girls helped me decide what I want to do. I am going to let Shane know we can talk about it in the morning when he sobers up."
We all got in the elevator and headed down to the lobby to see what those rascals were up to. We got to the ground floor and headed across the tiled lobby to the games room. Just as we opened the door we saw Chester going to roll the bowling ball down the alley. The problem was they had decided Brett forming a bridge over the lane would be a good idea. He had his feet planted on either side of the lane and had leaned backwards to place his hands also, his stomach pushed up high towards the ceiling.
We watched in horror as Chester swung the bowling ball back and forgot to let go of it in time . . . . . . . .
