Broken Bones

By Friday all my emotions were at boiling point, I felt excited that about representing the magazine, I felt fear for not representing it properly and I felt guilt for not being there for Nate when he needed me. Nate was cool about it but I don’t know I just felt like I was letting him down...Anyway Zoe’s been good on the nerve front as well; we’ve been practicing things to say and what to keep under our hats.

Zoe and I borrowed the dresses from The Fashion Cupboard; mine was this pale pink short dress while Zoe opted for a yellow maxi dress, we both wore heels, usually I don’t like maxi’s and heels but she looked beautiful. I kept my hair simple and chose a natural wavy look (that took about an hour to achieve) I also kept my make-up natural. Zoe’s hair was dead straight and she did a really subtle colour of eye shadow.

“You look sexy lady.” I said when Zoe walked up and planted a kiss on my cheek.

“Thank you, you’re not so bad yourself.” Zoe said with a wink.

We walked onto the boat showing our press passes and gliding past, I felt so important...

The event was a success we were both on point and shared information we could and played coy to info we chose to not divulge, generally we made a really good impression, some girls there were beyond drunk it was just embarrassing to watch.

My night was going well so I made a quick trip to the bathroom to check on the score on the game Eagles game, but my phone couldn’t get any signal on my phone so I had to wait until I got back to dry land, boo.

Anyhow we docked around 11pm, Zoe was giving me a lift home as soon as we got in the car my phone started beeping, I had 23 missed calls and 9 messages to say I was concerned was an understatement. I called Danny first seeing as he was the only familiar number that had called me.

“Paris, hey.”Danny answered.

“Hey what the hell’s going on?” I asked quickly.

“uh Paris its nothing really...uh Nathan, he broke his knee.” Danny said quietly.

“What?”

“He got tackled when he was getting a mark, completely illegal by the way, and he landed on his left knee.” Danny said hurrying through the story.

“Oh fuck, where is he? Is he alright?”

“Umm his on his way home from the hospital now, and I haven’t seen him, I’m guessing his not gonna be great P.”

“Fuck, fuck, fuck....Ok, I’ll be there ASAP.” I said hanging up and briefly explaining the situation to Zoe.

I beat Nathan home but only just, Georgie and Danny were already there, so was a representative from the club and Lesley seemed to have made the trip up from the beach and it looked like she sped her way here.

“Oh Paris your here.” Lesley said looking relieved.

“Yeah, where is he?” I asked.

“His here.” Nathan said his voice coming from his entrance.

People immediately began fawning over him he looked more pained by this then his actual broken knee which had a cast on it, poor Nate. He didn’t even get a chance to relax, suddenly it was crisis meeting time, his manager and the coach were talking strategies, he’d be off his leg for 7 weeks, which was 6 games because they had a bi one week, it doesnt sound like a lot but but by the time he got back to playing and training to be fit enough again, it would be finales time and the eagles would have to get there without Nathan, which lots of people had doubts about. Nathan was extremely unhappy, and everyone was being so insensitive, it’s like they forgot he was a person for a minute and only remembered the brand, which to me is the pretty damn heartbreaking.

Sigh, I’ll post again tomorrow, I have to go take care of my boyfriend, seeing as no one else is planning on actually doing it.

Coming Home

In the weeks since the reading everything was going pretty smoothly, I had been to all of Nathans three games he played (they won two lost the third ), Georgie and I were getting on fantastically and Audrey hadn’t even as uttered by name as far as I was aware. Radiance was going well and we were REALLY busy but it was good.

“Paris, would you come here please?” Minnie called from her office.

“Sure.” I called back.

As I sat down in her plush office chair she began talking.

“Paris I was wondering if you please represent Radiance at the 2010 Magazine convention this Friday?” She asked.

My mind ticked over Friday, I had Nathans game this week, he wouldn’t mind if I missed it especially for this opportunity, I wasn’t exactly sure what it was but I was extremely excited to find out.

“Yes of course, I would love to.” I smiled.

“Ok great and you can pick someone to come with you from the office...” She said.

“Zoe I think would be great.” I smiled.

“I thought so...Zoe come in here please.” She called from her office, Zoe soon joined me and we caught her up to speed.

“So what exactly does representing the magazine involve?” I asked.

“Well you will be there with all other fashion and beauty magazines in Australia, you have to be careful not to give away too much but still seem approachable and happy to answer questions about Radiance.” Minnie explained.

“Great.” Zoe replied excitedly.

We went over details (Boat on Sydney harbour, sailing around) and Minnie said we can borrow something from The Fashion Cupboard (:O) to wear so it’s safe to say we were more than a little excited, as were leaving the office Minnie asked me to stay for a minute.

“Paris I’m very excited to see how you do this weekend, we need you to be on point, because in Paris you are expected to represent our magazine well.” She said seriously.

“I understand that Minnie, thank you again.” I answered before sitting back at my desk.

She nodded with a smile as I left.
__________________________________________________________

Nathan opened his front door and I jumped on him giving him a massive kiss.

“Hello.” He said laughing he was still holding me close.

“Hello my darling boyfriend, how was training?” I asked before laying a few more kisses on him.

“It was good, hmm why can’t I get this welcome every time we see each other.” He said putting me down leaning me gently against his front door and kissing me.

“Hmm because then it wouldn’t be as special...” I answered slowly unbuttoning his shirt.

“I think it would be.” He said his hand going dangerously up my thigh.

“Before we take it to the point of no return, is Danny in?” I asked as Nathan was kissing my neck.

Nathan chose to ignore my question and keep kissing me, until I started pulling my shirt back on and then he snapped to attention.

“Uh babe stop...nope Danny his out with Georgie tonight I believe.” Nathan said pushing my shift to the ground followed by my skirt.

“Yay.” I said.

Nathan and I were otherwise amused for the next hour or so...
_____________________________________________________________

We were lying in bed after our marathon session, I was trying to keep my eyes open but I wiped.

“How many tickets did you want for Friday?” Nathan asked rubbing my back gently.

“Oh babe I forgot to tell you, I can’t make it Friday, I have this work function thing Minnie really wants me to be at, sorry.” I said turning around and kissing his hand.

“Oh that’s ok.” Nathan said but his face looked a little sad, I felt a pang of guilt at the situation.

“I’m really sorry Nate.” I said.

“Its fine, seriously will meet up after?”

“Yesssss, and I’ll check updates on my phone every ten minutes and tell you how sexy you looked running around the field.” I said suddenly now so tired.

The rest of the night was a blur of sex, food and more sex.

Authors Note

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to say a post will be up in a couple of hours, just editing and fixing and it up! :P So that'll keep Sweet Canadian happy! ;) Also thank you to anonymous for my spelling errors, much appreciated! ;)

Sorry I've been so flakey with posts, I have actually planned to spend part of tomorrow and ALL of Tuesday writing posts and I think in a couple of weeks I'll have enough posts to start wrapping things up! But you will have posts until the end of the year, probably longer ones and more frequent becuase I only have a couple more weeks to get it organised. Then I'll be taking January off from and BAM you'll have me back. Again I'm really sorry I've been so careless with the blog, I really appreciate all of you reading and I hope you continue to keep reading in the New Year.

Goose Bumps

Zoe and I both turned our heads, my skin covered in goose bumps I don’t know why we were acting such weirdos.

“Excuse me ladies, would you like a psychic reading?” A friendly looking
woman asked.

“Ummm,” I hesitated.

“Sure.” Zoe chimed in excitedly.

“Ok great, follow me.” She said taking her time to look us both up and down. Now I’ve never been that into psychic, but my mum was, so as a result I’d end up going with her, I found it really interesting, but that’s about all I got out of it. The woman led us around the corner to a purple painted door with the name Susan’s psychic printed on the front; I wondered why she chose to call out after us.

“How much will this cost?” Zoe asked as we walked through the door. As soon as I did I was confronted with a room full of purple, it looked like a stereotypical psychic office, but Susan herself looked just like every other commuter after work. The desk that separated us from her was had no embellishments, behind Susan there were a couple of photos, beaches mainly, some with lovers holding hands, I guess it made sense we were right across the road from the beach.

“I’ll do a free reading today, I saw you two at the cafe and our both looked a little lost.” She smiled friendly.
I raised my eyebrows at Zoe and she gave me a little smirk.

“Ok who’s first?” Susan asked as we were getting comfy on her

I shook my head at Zoe and she jumped in, “I’ll go.”

“Do you want your friend to stay?” Susan asked and Zoe nodded.

“Ok so, your name sweetheart?” Susan asked.

“Zoe.” She answered.

“Hmm ok Zoe, now you clearly work in fashion.” She answered.

Zoe’s mouth gaped, “I work at Radiance, how’d you know?”

“Umm well your dressed lovely and you were carrying around a stack of magazines.” Susan answered smiling, I laughed out loud and Susan joined it.

“Oh right.” Zoe smiled.

“Ok so you have had a pretty up and down year, there was a man in the picture, I believe you perhaps thought he was going to be a serious relationship but that ended painfully.” Zoe’s face was full of shock at that point, I was wondering if Susan would be able to play off people’s reactions or she genuinely knew.

“Hmm he is quite a selfish young man but he will grow out of it and be very happy by the time his 30, just not with you.” Susan smiled sweetly.

“Good.” Zoe said quietly.

“What else, well the young man in the picture now, he genuinely cares for you, but he is also a little selfish, it’s something you both can work through but it will be hard, I believe in the end this man is the one you will end up with, even if obstacles get in your way, hmm his name is fairly appropriate to getting through this...I can’t quite get it...Breaker, that’s it.” Susan said through closed eyes and a satisfied smile. “Break through the challenges and you will be happy.”

Zoe’s mouth was wide with shock, as was mine, how did this woman know?

“Any questions you’d specifically like to ask?” Susan said.

“Umm what about me job? How will that be in the New Year?” Zoe asked.

“Hmm some extreme challenges face you, you are getting a promotion, yes?” Susan asked for conformation.

“Yes, I am.”

“Ok well it will be difficult but there will be many people to help you through.”

Susan talked for a bit longer, mostly about Zoe’s family and how happy they would be in the New Year, she also predicted a health scare for a female in her but in the end it will all work out in the best outcome, whatever that means.

“Hmmm so your turn love?” Susan smiled sweetly in my direction.

“I guess so, Paris.” I said smiling while introducing myself.

“Hmm ok Paris let’s see...” Susan was quiet for a long time before starting, I looked panicked at Zoe who gave me a reassuring look. “Well your boyfriend plays some sort of sport does he?”

“Yes, football.” I answered.

“Well I’m not sure how much longer he will be playing; challenges are going to face you in the next few months, big unavoidable challenges in your relationship that will change both of you forever. I can’t see what exactly but I know this time next year nothing will be the same.” Susan answered.

I looked at her puzzled, “What?” I asked panicked, I loved my life now, I didn’t want anything to change besides the pervy paparazzi that have taken to following me around.

“Unfortunately your future isn’t as clear to me as Zoe’s was, which means you still have some pretty important decisions to make and it will probably be very soon that your faced with these decisions.”

“Ok.” I whispered.

“I have only one bit of advice for you, the only certainty in your life at the moment, is if you take all the opportunities your career offers you then you will excel beyond any dream you’ve had.”

Susan then wrapped up the reading, she had scheduled appointments coming through and needed to time to cleanse the room or something. I didn’t know what to make of the reading, Zoe got such a clear accurate reading and it seems like mine was just a lot of jumbled words trying to make me scared, Nathan and I are fine, I’m doing wonderfully at my job and I have nothing to worry about.

I wish I wasn’t so sure about that, or what came next maybe wouldn’t have been so hard to deal with.

Playing Catch Up

Finally Zoe and I got to catch up after work today, we’ve both been so busy, and work has been killing her, but it’s starting to slow down. The thing is nearing Christmas, we need to get two magazine issues done, because we have the week from Christmas to New Year off and we have to be absolutely prepared to go straight to press the week after everyone is back, on the plus Hally has been keeping her distance from me, which was unexpected, I thought after the magazine article she’d be on my case, but no, she’s backed right off.

Zoe and I were catching up at our favourite little cafe right by the water.

“So that article was...intense.” Zoe said once we had gotten comfortable.

“It was a little brutal, but Nathan and I have talked and apparently it’s all false.” I explained.

“...Oh well good, you’ve talked then.” She said.

“So what’s been going on with you then?” I asked.

“Umm not much, well actually I’ve been seeing someone.” She said with a big smile on her face.

“Really? That’s awesome, who is he?” I said genuinely excited for her.

“Well his name is Breaker.”

“Breaker? Hmm interesting, what does he do?” I asked, why is that always the first question? I would hate to be defined only by my career but it’s always the first generic question that pops in anyone’s head.

“He is a production assistant for channel 6, his really lovely.” She said her smile getting bigger and bigger.

“Ah cute Zoe, tell me everything.”I asked genuinely interested.

“Well his tall, has massive blue eyes, rocks a little bit of stubble and has these square black nerd glasses and is very sexy.” She smiled.

“Oooo he sounds really cute!” I laughed, she was smitten.

“Hmmm he is.” She said allowing herself to day dream for a minute.

We chatted easily about everything for about an hour, catching up on all the lost gossip from the last few weeks, eventually we were kicked out of the coffee shop and decided to walk along the main street, suddenly we were being beckoned by an unfamiliar voice, I’m not sure why but we both stopped dead in our tracks.

Just Breathe

“What are you doing here Georgie?” I asked as we were walking down the streets, I was extremely relived that she arrived when she did.

“Nathan called me, asked me to check on you and you weren’t answering your phone, so I freaked out and ran over here.”She explained.

“I’m sorry, you shouldn’t have worried, I would have been fine.”

“Oh yeah you looked like you were in complete control, dude she was about to pull out your hair out.” She said still gripping my arm tight.

“I never thought she’d do something like that.” I said, still shocked.

“I know, Audrey didn’t seem like the violent type.” She said.

"I didn’t think she was.” I said. I guess it was a perfect ending to an imperfect friendship, Audrey finally showed her true colours and I felt like I could finally breathe again.
_________________________________________________________________
“So what she poured water on you, pulled your hair, said I cheated on you and bagged out your family, is that it?” Nathan asked pacing up and down his lounge room while Georgie and I watched from the couch; it was safe to say he was a little pissed off.

“That about covers it.” I said trying to get him to sit down, while Georgie went to the kitchen, giving us some alone time.

“I didn’t have sex with her, I mean I did obviously, but not since I met you.” He said.

“Ok.” I said, I wasn’t going to deny that I was hoping he would give me an answer without me having to ask, I trust Nathan, he finally say next to me and I buried my head into his chest, breathing him in.

“I talked to my manager about the website, his trying really hard to get the article off, but it’s already out there, not much that can be done.” He said.

“It sucks but honestly as you said it’s out there now, I’ve been fielding calls from my family all day, at least my mum hasn’t seen it, oh well I’m a home wrecking, slut, whose boyfriend doesn’t really like her...Things could be worse I suppose.” I said snuggling into Nathan.

“Well I love you and so do my friends, and you definitely weren’t a home wrecker, I feel like we constantly have to explain and prove our relationship to other people, let’s just let it be.”Nathan said, quoting the Beatles who I recently found out were one of his favourite bands.

“You are so cute, I love you.” I said smiling, we had finally found some harmony in our crazy lives, I wonder how long it will last?

outRAGEous

I knocked furiously on the door in front of me, my rage was bubbling and I needed to see what Audrey had to say for herself, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to gain but I couldn’t let my life be taken over by vindictive and jealous person, I thought that 4 years of being inseparable and telling each other our deepest darkest secrets would mean at least a little respect after our friendship dissolved.

“Oh I should have been expecting you.” Audrey said as she opened the door looking less then pleased to see me. “Before you start yelling at me, can you please get the rest of crap out of your room before next weekend, I offered it to my roommate but she wouldn’t take your old junk.”

“Mature Audrey.” I said sarcastically.

“Hmm well come on then? Give it to me, what sob story are you going to lay on me?” She said walking through the entrance straight to the lounge room and sitting on the couch facing me.

“So what was with the story?” I asked.

“What? I didn’t write it.” She said, I gave her my ‘best bitch please’ look and she shook her head at me, “You don’t have to believe me Paris, but they’ve been building a story on you for a while, lots of unnamed sources, I stopped it from going to press and then I just decided I didn’t
care anymore.” She said harshly.

“Hmm say I do believe your pathetically weak story; you were mentioned in the article.” I said.

“Well I figured if you were going down, it wouldn’t hurt to get my name mentioned in the article.” She laughed shrilly.

“It’s not just me you’ve messed with here Audrey, its Nathan and his team, A LOT of people and you have no right to mess with their lives.” I said.

“Honestly Paris, I don’t care. I no longer associate myself with people who create drama.” She said.

“Seriously Audrey I cause drama, do you not realise the only reason I’m here is because of the shit your saying about me?” I said.

“I don’t know what you want me to say, I’ve heard some less then flattering stories about you in the last couple of weeks and I’m done.” She said.

“What kinds of things have you heard Audrey.” I said resisting the urge to reach over and punch her in the face.

“Well I’ve been seeing Katie around; she is getting a job at Dish the Dirt, her little TV gig didn’t work out, boo...any way dish the dirt is working on setting a tmz like TV program but with a host, and Katie’s in.” She said looking bored and glancing down at her nails.

“What’s your point Audrey?” I sighed angrily.

“Well...my and her have been talking, apparently her and Nathan had sex quite a few times after you guys went on your first date, said it was the best she’s ever have apparently he kept saying, ‘I really shouldn’t be doing this,’ it was all forbidden and dirty...apparently.” She said keeping her voice level and looking me straight in the eye.

“You expect me to believe that she just told you all of this? Honestly Audrey you’re acting like a jealous bitch.” I said, what she said hurt me and I wasn’t sure what to think, but I needed to defend Nathan and talk to him later.

“Jealous? Of you? Oh sweetie.” She said patronisingly.

“Come on, finally I have the boyfriend, the amazing job, with HEAPS of opportunities coming my way, your used to sitting on a pedestal and having EVERYTHING handed to you, well Audrey it’s not longer school, it’s the real world and you have to work for what you want, your daddy can’t bail you out!” I yelled, low blow I know.

She was shocked for a solid 10 seconds before she spoke.

“How dare you? My dad hasn’t bailed me out in a long time, and Paris at least I have family to reply on, where’s yours at the moment? Some random country in Europe? While your sister is all obsessed with her new baby?” She screamed.

“My mum has always been there, she is having a life at the moment Audrey and of course my sister is obsessed with her new baby, what a ridiculous argument.” I said facing the kitchen to catch my breath.

And as suddenly I turned around I regretted it, I felt a large cup of water being thrown over my head, I spun around quickly to see her holding an empty glass, the bitch soaked my hair, I would have started laughing at the ridiculousness of the situation but then she walked over to me and pulled my hair just as I was about to shove her back I heard the front door opening, it was Georgie, well that was random.

“What the hell you two?” She yelled.

We both backed away from each other, I grabbed my purse and headed for the front door Georgie looking shocked but following me out anyway.

Angry By Extension

*Hey everyone, don't forget to vote on the new poll :)

I called Nathan on the way to Audrey’s I was absolutely fuming and needed him to see it.

“Hello beautiful,” Nathan answered sweetly.

“Log on to dish the dirt.” I said instead of hello.

“Babe you know I don’t care about celebrity goss and all that.” He said, but I heard walk over to his computer click around about a minute later, while I was furiously pushing the Sunday commuters on the train Nathan let out a loud breath, signifying he had now seen the article that was trashing his girlfriend.

“What the hell is this?” He asked.

“Good fucking question.” I practically yelled and got a dirty look from a woman sitting next to me.

“Fuck is this slander or something?” He asked.

“Argh I don’t know, I think maybe but she’s not really saying anything particularly damaging for my career at least.” I said.

“Babe what the hell she said I tried to kiss her?” He asked obviously still reading the article.

“Yes, Nathan I’m going to go see what she has to say for herself.” I said impatiently standing up, ready to get off at the stop.

“What? No Paris I think that’s a really bad idea.”

“Well I’m nearly at the building, Nathan you’re forgetting that she was my best friend, this is not just some random journalist that wrote a story.”

“Ok Paris if you want to confront her that’s fine, but I honestly think you shouldn’t go alone, you say she hasn’t printed anything to affect your career but what if she does, I honestly think that you may just provoke
her.” He explained.

“I get what you’re saying but I want to talk to her, plus I still need to pick up some of my stuff too.” I justified, my arguments were becoming pretty weak.

“Babe this is the last thing I’ll say about it, I think it will get to Audrey more if you ignore it, don’t play into her petty teenage games.” Nathan said maturely.

“I love you Nathan, and just because I don’t agree with you right now doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate your advice.” I said finally stopping my speed walking and leaning against a brick wall close to the apartment.

“Just trying this new thing, umm I think it’s called communication with the woman I love?” He said lightly.

“I like it.” I smiled.

“Alright well when you’re done ranting and raving at Audrey come over and I’ll talk to my manager see what can be done about the website.” He said.

We exchanged I love you’s and I continued my trek to my old apartment.

Irreparable

*Hey guys, I'm really sorry I havent posted! I suck heaps I know! I have never been so stressed in my entire life, school absoutley killed me. I've been close to having a break down, but anyway school is almost over, and next week you guys will have WAY more consistency, if I can build up enough posts then I can hopefully posts everyday next week...again thats a maybe but I'll try my hardest! I honestly hope I havent lost any readers since by break and I promise to my loyal readers I will do my best to make you love me again ;) I hope everyone has had a safe and happy October + beginning of November! I've missed writing heaps!

Everybody left me and George’s house about midday we all had lunch together, it was really lovely, I can’t wait for our families to meet each other, I think that most of them will get along really well. Chelsea promised me we’d meet in the city one day this week for lunch, so that will be lovely. Nathan went to see Lesley, Brad and Martine before they left, and apparently it was very awkward with Martine, poor Nathan it doesn’t look like that particular relationship will be fully healed for some time.


So I was having a fairly lazy Sunday after everyone left and I got a mysterious email from Leigh from work, it was a link to dish the dirt with a message that said “Call my if you want to talk honey,”, Leigh isn’t really the ‘send the celebrity gossip link to a friend’ kind of girl so I was immediately concerned.

I clicked on the link and was faced with an entire 1000 word story about me. There were photos to accompany the article and it was less than a flattering image portrayed.

“Paris Lorre well your time has finally come; the little minx and her boyfriend Nathan Luken are apparently on the rocks, yuck. Poor girl, finally introduced to the high life and it’s about to be snatched away from her. Nathans friends were supposably less than thrilled when they met the young journalist, since then Nathan has been trying to distance himself...”

That was followed by a photo of Nathan and I hugging in the street and him breaking away looking angry (this was a joke at the time because we wouldn’t be seeing each other on the weekend, he was angry we had to leave not because we were ‘on the rocks’...).

“Paris’ roommate –who has chosen to be unnamed in this article- told Dish the Dirt that Paris was doing anything to keep Nathan interested, including very loud all night sexy times, Paris’ roommate also said that Nathan was continuously flirty with the her and was even bold enough to try to kiss her, she ignored it to attempt to keep a friendship with Paris intact.”

This was followed by a photo of Nathan and I after his game, when we were talking in the little corner, his hands were resting just above my ass, and we were just breaking from the kiss, the next photo was Nathan being tackled by his friends and me watching from the side, smiling. This was obviously trying to enhance the magazines point that his friends don’t like me.

“It’s a shame; we really thought that this simple girl could finally tame this wild beast of a football player, oh well let’s roll on the next girl who is willing to change herself completely for a boy.”

Followed by a photo of me in track pants with no make-up on going to the gym compared to a photo of me at Nathans first game linking with Georgie, my hair was done in nice curls and I wore simple make-up with a little dress and gladiator sandals.

To say I was shocked was an understatement, the article went on and on about how I wasn’t good enough for Nathan and how surprising it was we lasted this long. This had one persons dirty little finger prints all over it, so I did what I thought I had to do. I paid Audrey a little visit.

Make Up's?

“So you won huh?” I said in lure of hello to Nathan when he called me just after 11pm.

“We won! I’m really happy you were there Paris.” He said quietly.

“Me too.” I replied honestly.

“So can I come over?” He asked carefully.

“...If you want to.” I replied, it’s not that I didn’t want him to come over, it’s just I didn’t want to sound like a broken record and ask when we were going to talk about our ‘issues’, if we didn’t do it straight away then we would probably never do it.

“Don’t sound too excited.” He chuckled.

“I’m sorry, I do want to see you, it’s just a little weird.”I said.

“Weird how?” He asked softly.

“Um well, I guess after our fight there’s a lot that needs to be said.” I answered.

“Ok well what do you want to say?” He asked.

I exhaled loudly; I didn’t really know where this conversation was leading. “So when you went to Melbourne, and that shit happened with Katie, you never really gave an explanation.” I said softly.

“I went to Melbourne with the team; our coaches don’t give us a lot of notice on these sorts of things, especially so close to a season starting and by the time I was told about it you and I were not speaking, I just didn’t know what to say and they took away our phones, but Georgie got in touch with the couch who told me about it and I came home.” He answered honestly.

“Ok.” I replied.

“I was angry Paris, Brett is a complete creep and I tried to tell you that and you didn’t listen, and then I had to hear you tell me about it when he finally showed his true colours and you were surprised, and I didn’t say anything at the time, that’s why it all came out the other night.” Nate said calmly, he wasn’t getting on the defence just explaining his point of view.

“I honestly believed he just wanted to be friends Nate, I would never have put myself in that position had I thought he was after something more.” I said.

“...I wasn’t sure I believed that before but I know you Paris and I know you wouldn’t intentionally out yourself in that place.” He said.
We were silent for a while before I started talking.

“So why didn’t you want me there today?” I asked.

“I don’t know a weird supposition that I have, I usually only have family at the first game, and I didn’t know how to tell you without sounding like a prick.” He said.

“You know you would have sounded like way less of a prick if you’d just told me, if you’d told me I would have been fine to cheer you on from home if that’s what you wanted.” I said.

He sighed, “I know, and every time I got close I just couldn’t.”

“Ok, well in future let’s just be honest with each other, I don’t want you to keep things from me because you’re scared of my reaction.” I said a few tears escaping my eyes.

“Ok, deal honesty.” He said.

“If you still wanna come over you ca-, sorry, hold on the door bell is ringing.” I said and made my way to the front door wiping my tears.
Nate was at my door, his phone in hand and some flowers in the other. I pulled him inside and kissed him, we didn’t speak he just wiped my tears away and pulled me close against him.

“I love you Paris Lorre and I couldn’t imagine not being with you.” He whispered in my ear, as he picked me up off the ground and carried me to my room.

Hey everyone,

I'm really sorry for last week, if I'm being honest I had absoutley no motivation to write and I just couldn't. I'm not going to have a posting schedule for the next couple of weeks, my end of year exams are coming up and I need to focus all my attention on doing well in those! I promise after the next two weeks school will be over and posting will return to more, I will also probably have LOTS of bonus posts to make up for my irregular posting!

I hope I still have reader! :) I really appreciate all the support I've been given over the last 4 months of blogging and I hope I still have you all reading and enjoying the story.

Thanks

Love you all

Amy :D

Round 1 - The Win

Nathan played an AMAZING game, he looked so good on the field, throwing the ball and kicking it, they won by a mile, so it wasn’t an overly exciting game, from the first quarter everyone could tell that the Eagles were going to win. Seeing as there was no tension with the game apparently the crowd soaked it up, and by the crowd I mean Martine.

As soon as I walked up with Chelsea, Jake and Georgie (Belle and Matt took a little longer to get ready, they were meeting us later) awkwardness filled the air.

“Hello everyone, I didn’t think you were coming Paris.” Martine said.

“Nope, Nathan called me this morning, I changed my plans.” I said and suddenly Lesley wrapped me up in a tight hug.

“You look beautiful Paris, I’m so glad you made it.”She said genuinely.

“Chelsea what’s wrong you look sick my dear.” Lesley said as she enveloped her, Martine stood up for the side watching the scene play out in front of her.

“Bit of a hangover is all.” She laughed.

“Really Chelsea? It’s your brother’s big day you shouldn’t have been selfish.” Martine chimed in.

“Mum you know Nathans had heaps of big days, I had a good night with everyone.”

“Hmm well I just think perhaps you could have been a little bit more sensitive, you know how nervous he gets.” She said.

“Well I’m bloody well here aren’t I?” She said quickly and falling back in line with me Georgie and Jake, he still had barely acknowledged his mothers presence.

“Now Georgie you’ve done something different with your hair?” Lesley asked fingering Georgie lighter locks.

“Yeah I have, it’s a nice change.” She replied.

“Hmm blonde is a lot of maintenance.” Martine again chimed in; she was even more negative than normal.

“Well I think it looks lovely, we going in?” I interrupted and linked arms with Georgie as we led everyone into the stadium.

Suddenly I became aware of somebody snapping pictures of me.

“What is he doing?” I asked Georgie.

“Welcome to a wag world.” The man snapping the pictures said as he winked
and started backing away.

“What the hell was that?” Chelsea said as she ran up behind me.

“Some pap wanted a photo of Paris.” Georgie laughed.

“Eww, I don’t want a photo of me! I’m SO not a wag, why do people keep saying that to me!” I moaned.

“Well maybe you should have thought about not wanting the wag status before you started dating a football player.” Martine added from behind.

“But then we wouldn’t have her lovely company.” Lesley added gosh she was good at turning a negative comment into a positive.

Soon we were all wedged into the seats in the VIP stand, well not wedged I’m not going to lie the seats were lovely, we were in the important area. The stadium took my breath away, I hadn’t been to a football game in a VERY long time, the sun beat down and there were soooo many people! All had different team jerseys, and people were milling around attempting to find their seats. The VIP apparently usually just housed girlfriends/wives/children that hang but it was a special day for the first game, so it was jam packed with club officials and the owners and stuff I was so busy trying to take in all the famous faces that surrounded me then the bell sounded to signify the beginning of the game...

It began with the Australian anthem all the players looking extremely reverent, it was hard to imagine in just mere minutes both teams would begin to play as hard as possible to win. To be honest looking at Nathan on the field was mesmerizing, he looked so in control and his team was listening to him, he got tackled a couple of times I have never felt so protective over someone, we obviously still needed to talk about our fight but I finally realised how important this boy was to me and how hard it was to watch someone you love being beaten down (even if he was getting up seconds later ready for round 2).

“So are you ok?” I asked Jake carefully; ever since we got to the stadium he was in a terrible mood.

“Hmmm, just a little weird with mum.” He answered watching the field with serious concentration.

“Wanna talk about it?” I asked as casually as I could muster, he shook his head and gave me an affectionate pat on the back.

About half an hour after the game ended the boys came out into the VIP area, the temporary walls were removed and the space became huge, waiters appeared and the music started playing. Nathan came over to our little group; we were being a little anti-social only because every time Georgie, Chelsea or me saw someone even mildly famous we’d let out a little squeal and ‘subtly’ point them out.

Nathans arms were soon wrapping themselves around me from behind, I turned around and he pulled me close,

“Thank you.” Was all he whispered in my ear, cue extremely weak knees I didn’t care that his family was watching at that point, I gave him a congratulations kiss, he looked extremely delighted.

“GOOD GAME!” Chelsea and Georgie screamed together and wrapped in up in a group hug, Jake, Brad and Matt gave him a pat on the back, Belle gave him a kiss on the cheek, Lesley wrapped him up in big hug, then it was time for Martine they awkwardly hugged, obviously there was still some tension between them.

“Ok so we’re going to take you all out for dinner, I know you probably want to go out later Nathan with the boys but can we just have you for dinner?” Lesley asked Brad’s arm tight around her waist.

“I would love to come out for dinner, we just have to stay here for a bit longer, they are going to have some speeches and junk and then I’m free.” Nathan smiled in my direction.

“Good, good...” Brad added his face lit up when he saw any of the players; it was obvious his fantasy was coming true.
I realised it was probably time for me to leave, I was only there to support Nathan, we still needed to talk, I wasn’t prepared to just let this issue get swept under the rug.

“Ok guys, I think I better go.” I smiled, instantly Martine looked relieved.

I was met with lots of protests from Lesley, Brad, Georgie, Chelsea, Belle and Matt (Who only arrived just before the game started). Nathan just watched me, as I gave everyone hugs with promises to see them all for breakfasts tomorrow...Nathan grabbed my hand and led me outside.

“Are you sure you don’t want to come for dinner?” He asked as we found a little corner hidden away.

“No, I mean I want to but I shouldn’t, but babe I’m really proud of you.” I said.

“I didn’t mean what I said you know, I just got on the defence, and I was a complete ass.” He said.

“You weren’t the only ass in the room, I shouldn’t have brought up your family stuff, I had absolutely no right.” I said looking down; his finger gently pushed my chin so we were eye level.

“I’m not going to lie it was hard to hear, but you were completely right. I -,” he was cut off, a couple of his teammates practically tackling him to the ground and pushing him inside, he managed a quick kiss and a promise to call me later before they literally picked him up and dragged him inside.

Game Day

So Nathan also failed to mention his entire family was coming up to Sydney to watch his game, Georgie and I cleaned out the spare room but most of them were staying at Nathans and Danny’s because they are at the hotel anyway club rules apparently, of course I know all of this because of Georgie, Nathan and I still haven’t talked, so we managed to get Jake, Chelsea, Belle and Matt, we have like no room in our apartment for everyone but we are surviving, Nathans place had Martine (argh), West, Lesley and Brad, apparently there all going out for dinner after the game, I was asked by several people to go (just not by Nathan), so I had told them all politely that I already had plans. Georgie decided we all were going out on Friday, seeing as Nathan and Danny were already at the hotel, the older people were happy to stay in but we all went for dinner and then to a club.

We got to Mishca (club) around 11pm, it was awesome, the bar was the theme of the 70’s like an old diner, but everything else looked fairly modern, it looked so out of place that it was cool.

“So what did my brother do now?” Chelsea asked whispering in my ear over the loud music.

“haha it wasn’t just him that did things.” I whispered back.

“Hmm, ok anyway, how’s work?” She asked taking a sip of her cocktail.

“Yeah pretty good, I’m actually being sent to Paris sometime between Christmas and New Year for about three months!” I said excitedly.

“That’s awesome, congratulations!” She smiled and ordered a round of drinks on her.

Jake came and sat next to me a while later,

“So why aren’t you coming tomorrow, real reason?” He asked taking a swig of beer.

I sighed loudly before explaining, “He didn’t tell me about it, and when he did he said he doesn’t want me to come.”

“Ouch.” Jake added.

I shrugged my shoulders, “That wasn’t even what the fight was about, it was about communication.” I said using ginger quotes.

“Oh the Ye Old communication battle, Nate’s not one exactly an open person a lot of the time.” Jake said.

“Hmm I’m just trying not to think about it, it just sucks.” I said and

Jake pulled me in for a quick hug.

Then we all decided just to dance, well it was mostly me, Chelsea and Belle, we had a little too much to drink, ok a lot to much to drink...We were dancing for a solid hour without a break, every time a guy got a little close to us Matt (Belle’s husband) came over and made it clear she wasn’t available without being rude. Belle told Chelsea and me all about her Tahiti honeymoon, it sounded amazing, they swam and ate and generally had an amazing time together, she didn’t fail to mention the copious amounts of sex that they were having (STILL) either...

Just after 2am Georgie coaxed me, Chelsea and Belle into a taxi and the boys followed in one of their own.

“PARIS, pleasssse come to the game tomorrow.” Chelsea slurred.

“I want to, I really do but I can’t.” I replied also slurring.

“You and Nathan are good together, I like you Paris.” She said with drunken affection.

“Chelsea I like you too!” I said as she hugged me.

We all fell into bed, somehow Chelsea and I ended up sharing my bed, everyone woke up about 9am, kick off was 2pm but they were planning to get there about 12 which is apparently pretty standard for the first game of the season, I however was moping around the apartment feeling sorry for myself and trying not to vomit.

“Are you sure you can’t come?” Jake asked me once more as we were eating breakfast.

I shook my head to afraid to open my mouth in case I puked.

“He’d love it if you were there.” Matt added.

“No he wouldn’t, see he actually invited you guys, I was told three days ago by Danny...he doesn’t want me there and if he doesn’t want me there I don’t want to be there.” I said getting up and cleaning the kitchen from the breakfast mess, I could hear their conversation that ensured after I left.

“He is such a freakin’ idiot sometimes.” Belle muttered loudly.

“I know, he finally gets a nice girl, and he is going to fuck it up.” Chelsea said.

“I’ll chat to him tonight.” Jake added.

Suddenly then Florence and the Machines blasted through my phone, it was Nathans personal ringtone, after the wedding we had changed it, it was like our own sexy inside joke.

I walked into the bathroom and shut the door; I answered the phone on the third ring,

“Hello?” I answered.

“Paris, hey.” Nate answered there were loud voices booming out of the background.

Then it got a little awkward, both of us didn’t know what to say, I figured if he called me he’d have some sort of script to follow, like us woman when we call a boyfriend after a fight.

“Good luck today Nate.” I said quietly.

“Argh...I know we have to talk about our stupid fight, but I really need you to be here today, I know I’m a massive ass, but I really, really need
to know your here.” He practically begged, he sounded really nervous...

“Nathan I -,” I started to say but I was cut off.

“Please Paris? Please?” He begged and my eyes filled with tears at the sound of his desperation.

“Ok, I’ll be there.” I said.

He breathed a loud sigh of relief, “Thank you and I promise we can talk after the game.”

We finished the conversation then, so it looks like I’m going to the football. Sigh.

Flight or Fight?

“So have your gotten tickets to the game yet?”Danny asked me and Nate gave him very wide eyes.

“Arrr no, was I supposed to?” I asked confused, my eyes flicked between Danny and Nathan.

“Well the first game is on Saturday, so yeah you probably should.” Danny said finally realising the tension that was developing between Nathan and me.

Nathan, Danny, Georgie and I were having a celebratory dinner over our new roommate situations; we ordered Chinese and were just sitting in front of the TV waiting for the movie we ordered to start.

“Uh well I didn’t know about it so obviously I’m not welcome.” I said a little harshly, Danny was giving Nathan an ‘I’m sorry dude’ look. I got up and dumped my plate in the sink, a little childish I know. But why didn’t Nate want me there?

There was awkward whispers coming from the living room, I could hear Georgie getting angry at him in hushed tones and he was trying to explain himself in exactly the same manner, she wouldn’t let him get a word in...
I walked into Nate’s room to finish packing up my things. Nathan walked in soon after and shut the door behind him.

“Paris I’m sorry I didn’t tell you.” He said.


“Seriously Nathan, you NEVER communicate ANYTHING.” I said.

“I didn’t know how to tell you.” He said looking down.

“What, you didn’t know how to tell me you don’t want your girlfriend of three months at your first game? Well don’t worry too much your friend did it for you, like your sister told me that you were in Melbourne and your cousin told me about you growing with your aunt...there’s a lot of things that your don’t mention Nate.” I said angrily, trying to keep my voice level, I know it was a low blow about his family stuff but I was angry, and we really hadn’t communicated with each other very well lately.

“Really Paris you want to bring up things I’ve done wrong? Ok let’s get out your laundry list shall we? Hmm number 1 Brett, I warned you about him and then you’re surprised when he tried to break us up, there was Audrey all the shit she did, and your constant complaining about her...” He was really angry.

“Fuck you.” I said as I made a move to walk out of his room.

“No come on you said I don’t communicate now is our chance to start.” He said from behind as his hand reached around and shut the door.

“So what you’re sick of my constant complaining?” I yelled.

“I didn’t mean that, I’m just saying we’ve both been wrong.” He justified his voice raised.

“I never said you were the only one at fault...I meant WE both don’t communicate.” My voice still loud but I wasn’t yelling.

“Ok fine, I don’t want you at my first game, happy?” He said harshly.

“Overjoyed.” I said as I gave him a sarcastic smile and walked out to the living room.

“Georgie can we go, or do you want to stay?” I asked as I was gathering up my stuff.

“Nope we can go.” She answered quickly, giving Danny a quick kiss on the cheek and following me.

“See ya Danny.” I said just as Nathan was walking out of his room, his face stormy.

Ok so Nathan and I currently aren’t talking, and obviously I didn’t just want to hear he didn’t want me at his game but why. I really don’t care that he didn’t want me there, he probably has reasons but he WONT talk to my about it, that’s the problem, I would have been happy to sit at home cheering him on in front of the TV, but I want to know WHY I have to? Clearly there are more problems in this relationship then I thought.

Serious Sweetness

“Hmm I’m going to miss waking up next to you like this.” Nathan said, he was spooning me and being all cute and sweet this morning.

“It’s ok; you’d get sick of me anyway.” I said.

“Unlikely.” He whispered into my ear, and his hands travelled up to my thigh, so that’s why he was being so sweet.

“No, no, no mister, no sex today.” I said pulling his hand away.

“What, come on?” He said.

“Nope, I scream like a banshee apparently, so no sex until Danny’s not here, and your both getting up to go to training anyway...”

“Come on he was kidding...” Nate said as he was nibbling my neck and again his hand travelled up my thigh.

“Stop please.” My voice cracked and came out more like a moan, which Nathan took as a positive sign.

“Nathan.” I said feebly trying to stop him.

I gave up he was going to win anyway...;)
___________________________

“The place is absolutely gorgeous.” I said as soon as I stepped into Georgie’s apartment.

As I suspected when I first saw the outside, it was very sex and the city, it was way more understated then my Audrey’s apartment, no door man or gym but it was lovely. It was still close to my work and public transport was nearby. I’ll try to give a bit of a verbal tour, you walk into the front door (red...soooo cute) and there a very short hallway and a very small entrance way with this lovely glass table with a beautiful vase, anyway you walk a little further up and the kitchen is on the left, and on the right is a big living area, and a very large window with a little seat under it. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two were the same size and the third was significantly smaller, Georgie showed me my room, her bedroom has its own bathroom so I get mine own as well.

“So do you want to be my roommate?” Georgie asked after she had given me a tour and we were sitting down having a coffee in her modern kitchen.

“I would love to move into your apartment.” I said excitedly.

“Our apartment.” She corrected, ahhh she’s a sweetie.

“Ohh...so do you want to lay down any ground rules?” I asked.

“Uhhh nope...You?” She asked.

“Nope! Yay we’re going to be roommates!” I squealed!

“Well you can move yourself in whenever!” She said.

Then we just talked about formalities, when the rents due, the bond, the
bills all that jazz! I’m really excited about living with Georgie, she is so easy to get along with, and I need someone that I can have fun with especially after not only losing a roommate but one of my best friends.

Moving On

I stayed at Nate’s tonight, we were an extremely ‘coupley’ and ‘disgusting’ according to Danny, we also invited Georgie invited for dinner, Nate and I hadn’t both hadn’t seen her for ages.

“GEORGIE!” I yelled as I opened Nathans front door.

“PARIS!” She yelled back, she looked flippin’ hot, and I was about to find out why.

“You look really hot.” I said as she handed me some champagne and kissed my cheek.

“Thank you, you’re not looking to bad yourself.”She was just being nice, my hair was a mess, as was my face and I was really close to giving up completely and chucking on trackies.

“Haha, thank you.”I smiled.

We walked through to the kitchen we’re Nate was cooking a delicious stir-fry, god he looked so sexy when he cooked, he was all in control and his cheeks were a little red from the heat and arrgh he looked freakin hot.

“Hey.” Georgie said as she put her bag down on the counter.

“Hey.” Danny and Nate said in unison, Danny was sitting on the couch flicking channels and barely looked up.

Georgie went and sat next to Danny, when he finally looked at her, his eyes were wide with shock at her appearance; she was obviously smitten with him, that’s why she looked so good tonight.

I wrapped my arms around Nathans back while he was fiddling at the stove.

“Hmm baby that smells awesome.” I said.

“Thank you, this is kind of cool don’t you think?” He asked.

“What?” I asked running my hand up and down his toned stomach under his shirt.

“Us hanging out, cooking together, having people over for dinner, it’s awesome.” He said as he spun around.

“It is nice...wanna know a secret?” I asked.

“Hmm?” Nathan said as he pulled me even closer and kissed my nose.

“I kind of like you.” I said kissing him.

“...You go alright too.” He smiled and turned around to stir the dinner.

Danny and Georgie were laughing about something and his body was completely turned toward her, she was loving the attention, I had read enough magazines (and wrote enough articles) to know that they had some serious chemistry. Nathan dished up the food soon after and we all chatted easily.

“So why is there tonnes of boxes piled up in the hallway, I thought you got most of your stuff moved in Danny...” Georgie said as she gracefully ate some noodles.

“Not mine its all Paris’ junk.” Danny said nodding towards me.

“What? Why?” Georgie asked.

“She got kicked out...” Nate added close to laughing.

“Shut up Nate, yeah Audrey and I got in a fight, and she told me to get out of her apartment.” I said snuggling up to Nate.

“O-M-G, where are you going to live? What the hell, she’s such a bitch.” Georgie said angrily.

“I have no idea, I looked at a place today but Nathan didn’t like it.” I said rolling my eyes.

“Because it was in the worst neighbourhood ever, and the owner looked like a drug lord...” Nathan said.

“He was fine, just a little handsy.” I said to Georgie, I could see her face ticking over but I had no idea why.

“So what’s everyone else’s news?” I asked.

“Paris, you should move in with me.” Georgie asked bluntly.

Nathans face was the pinnacle of confusion at that point.

“Uh are you serious?” I asked.

“Yes, remember agessss ago I said I needed a roommate and you’d be perfect, seriously you’re clean and nice, and you won’t be bringing home random guys...” She pondered out loud.

“Damn right she won’t be bringing home random guys, I think it’s a pretty good idea.” Nate added smiling at me.

“Are you sure?” I asked.

“YES! It would be awesome, argh! You should come by and see the place, see if you like it and you can decide.” She said.

“That would be really cool! Thank you so much Georgie! Imagine if we live together, we’d have sooo much fun!” I laughed.

“Ok come over tomorrow, after work.” She said.

“Finally, I don’t have to listen to your guys having nightly sex marathons.” Danny interjected.

I went bright red and Nathan just shook his head chuckling, I hit him playfully still not looking at Danny.

“Argh you’ve made her all embarrassed Danny.” Georgie said lightly.

“Oh Paris I’m sorry, but if you’re going to scream like a banshee then I have a right to tease you.” Danny said.

“Shut up, I don’t scream like a banshee, your such an ass.” I laughed.

“Oh really, I could quote quite a few lines I heard last night, ‘Nathan you so-,” He said before I cut him off.

“Shut up, shut up, shut up!” I yelled playfully getting up from the table and making my way to the kitchen.

“Ok, I’m sorry.” Danny said he said putting his hands up in mock surrender.
Nathan was laughing out our little exchange, I think the only reason he found it so hilarious was his friend now knows what a sex god he is...

Homeless

“WHAT SHE KICKED YOU OUT?” Zoe screamed after I told her the story, I managed to keep it together for all of about 5 minutes after walking into her apartment and I broke down in tears.

“Yep, I’m homeless.” I cried.

“Oh sweetie, I knew she was bad news.” Zoe said handing me a shot of tequila.

“I didn’t, she was my best friend, I have known her for a long time I didn’t expect her to say those things to me.” I said sculling the tequila.

“Unfortunately that’s just what happens, you outgrow people and that is the sucky reality of life. Why do you think so many people get divorced? Look the thing is your in completely different places in your lives, you’re getting offered internships overseas and she is barely getting published, I don’t mean that in a bitchy way they are the facts.” She said.

“I know argh Zo why are you so smart?” I asked.

“I have no idea.”

“Zo where am I going to live?” I asked shutting my eyes.

“You can stay here until you find something...I’ll look after you darling.” She said sympathetically.
____________________________________________________________
That was the last thing I remember before falling asleep, it was one of the best sleeps I’ve had alone in a long time.

Work the next day, Audrey and I hadn’t spoken but I didn’t expect us to, I still needed to go and get some things from the apartment, like my bed and stuff but I’d need a moving truck, Nathan would probably help, I decided to go see him after work.

Danny answered the door,

“Ooo you look miserable.” He said in way of hello.

“Hmm, I’m ok.” I said walking inside.

“Nathans in his room.” Danny said as he resumed his position in front of the TV.

“Hey baby...” I said knocking on his door and pushing it open, he had an ice bag on his knee and was reading a magazine.

“Hey.” He answered.

“What happened?” I asked taking position next to him on the bed.

“Oh nothing much, just an old knee injury playing up, it’ll be fine.” He answered putting his magazine down and snaking his hand around my waist.

“Damn, do you want a massage?” I asked playfully.
He laughed softly, “Maybe later.”

“How was your day?” He asked.

“Hmm ok, I stayed at Zoe’s last night.” I answered.

“Why?” He asked.

“Audrey kicked me out...”

“What?” He asked shocked.

“Hmm there was a photo of Katie and her together, I asked her why, and then it escalated, we both said things and I am now homeless.”

“What? I don’t even know what to say.” He replied stunned.

“Yep, I’m over her...I need to find somewhere to live.” I said thinking out loud.

“You can move in here if you want...just until you find somewhere else.” He asked.

“uhh...are you sure?” I asked.

“Why not? We have sleepovers all the time, and it won’t take you long to find somewhere.”He suggested.

“There’s a big difference between sleepovers a couple of times a week, and bringing all my stuff here while I look for a new place...” I said.

“Yes but your only staying until you get a place...” He prodded.

“Hmm ok.” I smiled and kissed him gently.

“Good, and Danny can help me get the big pieces of furniture because he owes me...” Nathan smiled and kissed the top of my nose.

“Nathan I’m not sure what Audrey is going to do...I mean what if she prints stuff about you.” I said.

“Come on, she wouldn’t do that, you guys have had a pretty bad fight but Audrey wouldn’t do that.”

She wouldn’t, would she?

Evidence

So this morning I turned on the computer at work and something interesting caught my attention, I was on an Australian gossip website and a photo of Audrey and Katie Santsee stared back at me mocking me, they were standing close together looking like old friends. To say I was shocked was an understatement...My mind flooded with possibilities, and I had lots of questions...firstly since when did Audrey warrant the kind of attention to be put on a gossip website, why the hell was she posing for a photo with KATIE, the woman spat on me for god sake!!!!!! My blood was boiling when I got home, I was irrationally angry, I couldn’t help it.

“AUDREY!” I bellowed when I walked in the front door.

“Mmm?” She replied from the kitchen she was baking cookies.

“I saw something interesting today.” I said.

“And that was?” She replied licking spoon from the left over dough.

“A photo of you and Katie Santsee.” I answered showing her.

“O-M-G that made it into A GOSSIP SITE?” She screamed excitedly.

“Yes, why are you hanging out with her?” I asked.

“I’m not hanging out with her Paris, I ran into her on a night out, she was pretty cool. I know you guys have had issues but I’m steering clear of it.” She replied.

“‘Had issues’? Audrey the woman spat on me and accused me of fucking her boyfriend while I was at work.” I said keeping my voice relatively calm.

“Well you kind of did, didn’t you?” She asked.

“NO Audrey what the hell? You know I would never do that!” I retorted harshly.

“Paris they may not have been together, together but everyone thought they were.” She replied.

“How dare you? You’re supposed to be my friend, as in if somebody spits on me and makes a scene you’re automatically supposed to be on my side.” I almost screamed.

“Come on Paris, aren’t we a little bit old to have sides, and to be honest I like Katie she was fun and not high maintenance unlike some of my other friends.” She yelled, and it was implied that I was the high maintenance friend.

“Really Audrey I’m high maintenance? Do whatever you like; I’m done with your bullshit.” I screamed.

“Well if you’re done with my bullshit, you can get out of MY apartment.” She screamed back.

I was left open mouthed; she had just kicked me out. We had had fought before but it was never like this, she had NEVER threatened to kick me out, I walked calmly to my room, sent a message to Zoe asking if I could stay at her place tonight and packed my bag, she sent back no worries. I managed to pack all my bags and a lot of little things that surrounded my room. I was moving on auto pilot all I could think about was getting out of this toxic apartment.

Seriously I was just confused I don’t know what’s going on with Audrey lately, frankly she’s a jealous cow and I’m completely over not knowing what mood she’s going to be in when I get home at night.
I walked out of my room and she was sitting on the couch eating some freshly baked cookies and watching TV, we didn’t speak as I walked out of the apartment.

I don’t think this particular situation was a friendship ending thing between Audrey and I but we’d both been waiting for anything to create some distance between us and finally there was something. Sigh.

How to Mend a Broken Heart

“So what he just came right out and said that I was using you?” Nathan said angry pacing around his bedroom.

“Yep...” I said realising that on reflection telling him probably wasn’t a great idea.

“What a tool, seriously if I see that guy...” He muttered.

“What are you going to do?” I asked a little concerned.

“Well, he will be getting a good talking to.” He said sitting on his bed.

“Oh baby.” I said giggling and pulling him in for a hug.

“No, seriously Paris he has no right, he doesn’t know me and he doesn’t
know us.” He said angrily.

“I know.” I answered waiting for him to get out all his complaining.

“I know the footballer stereotype, that’s not me. I’m not the guy that has sex with tonnes of girls or plays games and I am definitely not playing you.” He said sincerely.

“I know Nathan; we wouldn’t be together if I didn’t honestly believe that you were you.”I smiled adjusting myself on his lap.

“Good.” He said kissing the tip of my nose.

“Sooo where’s Danny?” I asked changing the subject.

“I don’t know, we moved most of his stuff in yesterday, god I hate moving it sucks.”

“Nate I...I’ve been meaning to tell you something...it kind of a big deal I mean it might be... I’ve been...well I have been offered an internship in Paris its-”I said speaking quickly.

“Babe that’s amazing.” Nate cut me off.

“I know it’s pretty cool; the thing is Minnie said it would be for the next 3 months, maybe longer.” I finished watching Nate’s face carefully.

“Oh.” Was all he managed to say, his eyes dropped from mine.

“I know.” I said as Nate shuffled me off his lap and walked over to his bedroom door.

“Paris I’m really happy for you.” He said fairly genuinely as he opened his door and walked to the kitchen.

“Nate I haven’t decided if I’m going yet...” I said following him.

Nathan turned quickly looked at me through wide eyes as though I was crazy, “No Paris you have to take this opportunity.”

“I want to Nate; I really do but why now? Why couldn’t this happen before?” I asked.

“Because you’re amazing at your job now...” He said smiling.
I pouted a little bit and Nathan pulled me into him his arms and kissed the top of my head, “Don’t get me wrong, I am so excited it’s just I don’t want to go now!” I said.

“Hey if you only don’t want to go because of us, we will work it out. We can do long distance for 3 months, easy.” He said still holding me close.
Tears welled up in my eyes and I buried my face into his chest,

“Hey come on don’t cry, I hate seeing you cry.” He said.

“I’m sorry; you’re just being so nice.” I said laughing which spurred on more tears; simply I was a messy little Paris.

“What did you expect me to do?” He chuckled.

“Do you really think we could do the long distance thing?” I asked my head still buried in his chest still sniffling away and ignoring his question.

“Yep I think so, it’s only 3 months, and we already expected some sort of distance with me travelling for footy, this is just a little more extreme, don’t get me wrong it’s going to suck but we can do it.”He reassured me.

“I love you.” I said meeting his eyes for the first time since this conversation began.

“I love you too, and Paris I promise we can do it, you mean way too much to me for us not to try.” Nathan finished just as Danny walked into the kitchen, I wanted to say something else to him unfortunately we were interrupted, the joys of having a roommate.

“Hey guys, ooooh, am I interrupting something?” He asked as Nathan and I broke apart.

“Nope, all moved in?” I asked grabbing an apple to munch on and pulling a stool out to sit at the breakfast bar, and lazily started flicking through a magazine.

“Yep, moving sucks.” He smiled.

“It definitely does.” I decided I liked Danny, he was very real, he was a lot like Nathan in that respect didn’t really let his money or his status go to his head.

“So do you guys want to hang out tonight?” He asked.
Nathan looked at me and I nodded and stood up.

“Certainly do, we can help you mend that broken heart.” I smiled as Danny swooped his hand under my waist and led me to the couch,

“Haha, thanks Paris, now what’s the first movie?” He laughed as Nathan came and sat on the couch, we snuggled and watched some terrible movies, my vote didn’t count because the boys ganged up on me, hmm oh well.

How Could I be So Naive?

*Thanks for the lovely birthday messagages! :D Also 24 followers!!!!!! YAY

Work was interesting today, after taking Friday off I had lots to catch up on, so I got to work very, very early.

“Good morning Paris, you here very early.” Minnie said as she walked in to her office and dumped the hundreds of pieces of paper she had, and walked back out to chat to me.

“I thought I should be after taking Friday off.” I smiled.

“Oh yes, and how is your gorgeous new nephew?” She asked.

“His beautiful, seriously I’m in love with him.” I said.

“I would love to see some pictures soon.” She winked as she walked into her office. I had heaps of photos of him, but Grace and Simon had yet to choose a name, she was leaving the hospital today so they had to come with something, I think they might name him Harrison, which I love! Oh well guess we’ll soon find out.

The rest of the morning I was very productive, Brett and I made awkward small talk while he was waiting for a meeting with Minnie. We hadn’t really spoken since the night he stayed late and I think he knew that Nathan wasn’t exactly comfortable with us being friends, I know that I told Nathan I would still be friends with Brett but it didn’t really feel right, not after our fight which we still haven’t really talked about. Zoe came in about an hour late looking terrible, she had a hangover and looked like she was about to vomit.

“Zoe what’s going on?” I asked her when we were out to lunch.

“What do you mean?” She asked.

“Well you have a hangover and it’s a Monday, how are you dealing with your breakup?” I asked.

Zoe sighed before speaking, “I saw him yesterday...hence the massive Monday morning hangover.”

“I knew it, Zoe. Where did you see him?” I asked.

“At my apartment...” She sighed.

“Did you have break up sex?” I asked my tone light but I knew the answer I would get.

“Yes, not just once either...” She whined. “I don’t know what I’m doing Paris, I break up him and he calls me and then we have sex, seriously it’s like where in the exact same position we were before we broke up its just there is no commitment.”

“Zoe you have to work out what you want from him.” I said.

“I know, I know it’s not a smart idea to keep going the way we are.” She said miserably.

Suddenly we became aware of a dark shadow standing at the end of the table, it was Brett.

“Hey Brett.” I said attempting to be friendly.

“Hey Paris, Zoe.” He smiled.

“Sorry to interrupt your lunch but can I have a chat to you Paris?” He asked carefully.

I hesitated but Zoe interrupted, “I have to go back to work anyway, I’ll see you both there.”

Brett sat down filling Zoe’s place.

“So what have you been up to?” I asked.

“Paris, why have you been avoiding me?” He asked directly.

“...I haven’t. Ok that’s a lie, I have. I am going to be completely honest with you, Nathan wasn’t exactly impressed with our behaviour at the dinner party, so I thought best to give us some space.”

“I knew he wouldn’t like me after that night...” Brett said a little mysteriously.

“Why?” I asked.

“Well we were flirting like mad, look Paris anyone can see there is something between us.” He said looking at me directly in the eyes.

“Brett, no. Let me make this perfectly clear, I love Nathan, he is the only person I want to be with, I’m sorry if I gave you the wrong idea it wasn’t my intention at all.

“I think you need to open your eyes Paris, I can’t see you and Nathan lasting much longer, don’t you realise what a fantasy this is? Dating a famous football player, who you have described sweet and funny and gets along with your friends, his playing you Paris and you’re just too infatuated to see it. Soon you’ll see, and hopefully you haven’t left it to long for us to be something.” He said with confidence that made me want to slap his across the head and throw my drink on him.

“You don’t know the first thing about Nathan, and honestly even if we need break up, there is no chance of you and I being anything more than colleagues, I would appreciate if we didn’t speak unless work related.” I said as I snatched my hand bag from the chair next to me and walked out without a second glance at Brett.

I knew Brett’s type, hell I’d written articles about Brett’s type. He was the kind of guy that thought of every girl as a challenge, and if he hadn’t hooked up with her he’d lost the game. He was the guy that went after girls with boyfriends to make his life a little more interesting, I just wish I had figured it out sooner...

Hard Labour

*Hey everyone, I apologise for the next couple of posts, I'm not entirely happy the next couple of posts but I needed to tie up some lose ends before I really get into the story! Wooohoo! Also its my birthday today! Yay! (Sorry again)

Nathan and I got to the hospital in record time, when we got there let’s just say, it wasn’t pretty. We practically ran into the room and Nathan walked straight back out again, without saying anything. Grace’s legs were up in the air and the midwife was checking how far dilated she was, I’m not going to lie childbirth is far from pleasant, and seriously the only beautiful thing that came out of the horrid experience was my brand new nephew.

“PARIS, I’m so happy you here, please lord, help me!” Grace bellowed from the bed.

“Hey guys how’s everything going? What can I do?” I asked.

“I’m going to get us some drinks, coffee Paris?” Simon asked obviously needed a little break from his wife who was in extreme pain. I think sometimes people forget about what the man goes through during his wife’s labour, like their instinct is to protect his wife or girlfriend and their lying in front of them is her screaming in pain and they can do absolutely nothing besides holding their hand.

Anyway enough of my poor daddies rant, my nephew is gorgeous, he was so alert and has these beautiful big blue eyes and oh I started balling my eyes out when he was handed to me. It’s like something took over Grace when she was actually pushing, like a sudden calm fell over the room and she looked so in love with Simon at the moment, and then he was here, my little nephew was in the world.

Nathan came into the room; he walked in carefully after his previous traumatic experience of seeing my poor sister with a doctor between her legs, I tried to explain that it got a lot worse after he left but he refused to listen to me. Nathan didn’t want to hold him he was to afraid of ‘breaking him’, but eventually I convinced him and I could see Nate falling in love with him like I had only minutes before.

Soon enough the nurses decided there were too many people in the room,
Nathan and I were tired so we decided to go back to my parents house and catch a few hours sleep.

We snuggled into my childhood bedroom, talking about everything.

“So this is your childhood bedroom hey?” He said as we were spooning in my single bed.

“It is.” I answered.

“So have you ever had any boys in this bed before?” He asked nuzzling my neck.

I had actually had another boy in here before but I decided to tell a little white lie,

“Nope, you’re the first.”

“Your totally lying right now aren’t you?” He asked, his hands travelling dangerously high up my thigh.

“Ok I did lie, but you’re the only sexy footballer that’s been in my bed.” I answered.

“Good.” He said pulling my shoulder towards him, so I was facing him, his lips hovering above mine.

“How can you be in the mood after today?” I asked my hands resting on his shoulders.

“I just think after seeing that, we should practise completely safe sex.” He joked.

Maybe Baby?

I got to talk to my mum today! It’s been a while, she’s in Ireland at the moment, she loves it apparently so does Ray, there not due back for another month, but mum was even talking about extending the trip, which is exciting for her, she rarely does things for herself so I’m glad she’s having an amazing time. I told mum about the internship in Paris, she didn’t try to give me advice she just listened to my complaining and my excitement about the offer.

Just after I hung up from mum I got a call from a very nervous Simon.

“Paris, Grace’s water just broke...”He said in a panic, I could hear him rushing around his house and Grace in the background telling him to slow down.

“Really? That’s so exciting! I’ll drive down tonight, is that ok?” I asked excitedly.

“Hurry up, she’s insisting your there for the delivery, I need you Paris, we can’t do this alone.” He begged.

“I’ll be there as soon as I can, I promise.” I said running around my apartment trying to pack a bag for a couple of nights, if I left tonight I would only have to take one day off work and then I could spend the weekend with them.

I had to call Nathan let him know I was leaving.

“Hey pretty lady, are you coming over tonight.” Nathan said his voice all low and sexy when he answered his phone.

“Hmm tempting but no, I’m going back home Grace is in labour!” I said excitedly.

“Really? Argh that’s exciting!” He replied.

“Yes, yes I know! Well I better go, but I’ll call you when I get to the hospital!” I said.

“Hmm ok...Paris; do you maybe want some company?” He asked carefully.

“Really? Are you sure you can miss training?”

“I’d only really miss one...but if you don’t want me to come I understand.” He asked a little quietly.

“No I really want you to come! Woohoo road trip!” I said laughing.

“Cool do want me to drive, I can pick you up in like half an hour?” He said.

“Awesome well I’ll see you soon, I love you.”I said hanging up and packing the clothes I had chucked on my bag.

Exactly 30 minutes my doorbell rang, Nathan was there looking so handsome, and Audrey was close behind him, I gave Nate a quick kiss and turned my attention to my roommate.

“Audrey, I haven’t seen you in so long!” I said pulling her in for a kiss on the cheek.

“I know, Nathan filled me in on the baby situation, will catch up when you get back.” She said giving me a wink.

“Ok!”
Nate grabbed my bag and pulled me in for a kiss.

“Hey Aunty Paris!” He said laughing.

“Hello my beautiful, sexy, sweet boyfriend, I’m so happy your coming.” I said practically jumping on him from excitement.

“I’m happy I’m coming to, come on we have to hurry.” He said rushing my out the front door, Audrey laughing at us.

We were on the road and only made one stop for food, mostly lollies and chocolate it’s really not a road trip without junk food.

“So when does Danny move in?” I asked moving closer to Nate my hand sitting on his thigh.

“I think his moving some stuff in tomorrow, but he’s already claimed the spare bedroom.” Nate explained.

“You happy about having your space invaded?” I asked.

“It’ll be good to have a friend living with me for a while, it’s not forever.”

“Good I’m glad you’re happy.” I smiled.

“So what’s going on with you and Audrey?” He asked curiously.

“Nothing why?” I asked genuinely confused.

“It’s just she seemed a little cold at the apartment, I don’t know.” He
said stealing a quick glance at me.

“It’s been a little weird lately, I don’t know, we’ll talk about it when we get home.” I said.

“Good plan, you should get some sleep before we get there, it might be a long night.” Nate said.

“You’re so sweet Nathan Luken.” I said leaning on his shoulder and falling asleep almost straight away.

To be continued...

23 FOLLOWERS!!!! WOOHOO!!! <3 you all!

First Impressions

The barbeque was well it was pretty interesting; Nathan picked me up around 5pm on Saturday and I was very nervous.

“Babe, stop.” Nate said as he put his hand on my knee to stop the shaking.

“I’m sorry I’m scared, what if ill the girls are mean to me!” I moped.

“Ha ha don’t worry ill take care of you...” He promised.

“Hmm ok.” I said as he pulled into the driveway and pulled me in for a big kiss.

“Nate I have to tell you something, it’s not really a big deal yet, it’s just I-.” I was cut off by a massive guy practically tackling Nate out of the car.

“NATHAN, MATE!” yelled a man I recognised as Richard Vermont.

“Richie, how are you?” Nathan said patting him on the back, as I got out of the car.

“Fine, fine and this must be your lovely lady?” he asked politely giving me a kiss on the cheek.

“Certainly is, Paris, Richie, Richie, Paris.” Nathan said introducing us.

“Nice to meet you.” I said smiling.

“She’s cute Nate, I approve. Come on ill introduce you to everyone.” He said swopping his hand under my waist and leading me around the back of the house where the party was, Nathan was following close behind.

“EVERYBODY, meet Luken’s new lovely girlfriend Paris, Paris this is everybody...” He said when we walked through the back gate.

The backyard was beautiful, it had a swimming pool off to the right, and a big patch of grass, the house backed onto this little river, the patio was beautifully decorated with fairy lights and a large glass table that looked onto both the river and swimming pool. The house needless to say was a big and beautiful. Argh, it was gorgeous.

Nathan’s arm quickly replaced Richie’s and he gave official introductions, all the guys were standing around the barbeque, my stomach quickly knotted as I saw the girls standing near the grass, all looking very chatty with each other, most wearing some form of heels and skinny jeans (lucky I had predicted such an event and dressed in skinny jeans and some wedges, and a floaty blue top.)

After all the introductions were finished and I safely had a drink in hand, I got chatting to a lovely girl lucky the girls weren’t anything like I expected, they were really friendly and welcoming, although there were a certain group of girls I avoided, I don’t know why but I’m pretty sure they were team Katie (Nathans ex).

“So how long have you and Nathan been going out?” Lilly asked.

“Um I met him in July and we have been dating since then, who are you dating here?...” I answered smiling.

“Uh I’m dating Lachie Barat, just over there.” She pointed to him and o-m-g he is was so beautiful I thought I might pass out.

“Oh cool, how long have you guys been dating?”I asked wondering only for a second if I was crossing a line.

“We’re entering out 3rd year together.” Lilly replied.

“Wow that’s awesome.” I smiled.

“Yeah it is pretty cool, we’ve had a couple of hiccups along the way but his always there for me.” She answered; I remember a few hiccups appearing in the gossip magazines, one involving Lachie making out with a fan in a nightclub where Lilly was about 20 metres away, needless to say Lilly went crazy and it was caught on camera, awkward indeed.

I smiled and nodded sympathetically at her, and felt someone’s arm intertwined my waist and Nathan plant a kiss on my cheek.

“Hello beautiful, sorry Lilly can I steal my girlfriend away for just a second.” Nate asked.

“No worries, good seeing you again Nate.” She smiled and joined another group nearby.

“So you’re having fun?” Nathan asked giving me another kiss.

“I am, everyone is nice.” I smiled pulling him a little closer to me.

“Good, what did you want to tell me before?” He asked his lips just inches from mine.

“Nothing...not important it can wait.”Yes I admit it, I chickened out of telling him about Paris.

“Are you sure?” He asked watching my curiously.

I nodded and he pulled me in for another kiss, before we heard Richie yelling at us.

“Guys get a room; no-one needs to see that!” He yelled his tone light.

“Sorry...”Nathan called out, but his eyes didn’t leave mine.

“I’ve gotta tell you something...please don’t be mad.” Nate said.

“What is it?” I asked a little worried.

“Ok so Danny,” He said pointing over to the group of guys, “just broke up with his girlfriend like last night, and he was wondering if he could stay with me for a little while, just until he finds a place and stuff, and I said yes, I hope that’s ok.” He rushed through his little speech; he was so cute when he was nervous.

“Babe it’s not my place it’s completely your decision and I think it’s very cool you’re looking out for your friend.” I said giving him one more, quick kiss before he dragged me over to the guys table to introduce me to Danny.

The rest of the afternoon was pretty fun, I met a couple of lovely girls and most of the guys were nice albeit some were a little sleazy. Who knew that Nathan would end up with a new roommate by the end of the barbeque? This should be very interesting.

Decisions, Decisions

*Hey everybody I cant say I'm sorry enough, I forgot to schedule this post, and I was at a friends house. I didn't want anyone else to because none of my family or friends know about the blog! Sorry, sorry!!! There will probably be a bonus post this week, to make up for my slackness! Thanks heaps for being patient with me! Also sorry for the length of this post, its going to take me a while to get back into the swing of things! :D

I didn’t tell Nate about the offer, I don’t know why, I guess I’m considering it but I’m not sure how it will affect us yet so I have decided not to mention it until I know. Paris is my dream, it always has been my career focus but things change I suppose and my life has definitely changed in the last couple of months. Zoe and I decided we needed some serious girl time; our plan was to go shopping after work and then grab dinner.

“So what are you going to wear to your wag barbeque?” Zoe asked.

“I don’t know...Stop saying ‘wag barbeque’ it’s freaking me out.” I replied.

“Sorry...but come on sweetheart, you’re extremely close to being wag status.”
I let out a mock cry and Zoe patted me on the back.

“So did the sexy football player explain himself for not calling?” Zoe asked.

“No, I mean we barely talked about it, I know we have to but where not exactly the world’s best communicators.” I sighed.

“You guys should talk...You’re so good together but not communicating properly is the downfall of most relationships.” Zoe said.

I laughed at her wisdom, she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “I did a psych minor at uni.”

“I know you’re right, oooooo do you want to hear something interesting?” I asked changing the subject.

“I do.” She answered while lazily flicking through the clothes on the sales rack.

“Guess who was offered a three month internship in Paris?”

“NO really?” She squealed.

“Yep!”

“Oh how very hills season 1.” She joked, “Except there’s no chance you wouldn’t actually go.”

I looked down avoiding her gaze...

“YOU CAN’T SAY NO TO PARIS!” She yelled.

“I’m not saying no, I’m just thinking about it.” I explained.

“Ok I have to call you P during this conversation cause its getting way to
confusing, P you can’t say no to Paris, you know what they say When Paris sneezes,
Europe catches cold, and it’s not just Europe it’s the whole fashion world P, if you want a career in this industry you cannot say no.” She said forcefully but kindly.

“I know Zo, I completely agree and that’s what I keep telling myself...we both know three months in Paris really mean six months or longer...” I justified.

“Look I love Nate you know that but you have your entire life to be with him, Paris is a once a lifetime opportunity, Nathan will wait and you know he will.”

To be honest I’m not sure what I’m going to do anymore...

Interesting Offers

“Babe, babe wake up your alarm is blaring.” I heard Nathan say as I was slowly coming out of the best sleep I’ve had in forever.

“Hmm sorry, morning.” I turned around and hugged him.

“Last night was...amazing.” I said smiling at him.

“Last night was definitely amazing.”He said kissing my forehead. We were silent for a while before he asked, “Babe I forgot to ask you, did you want to come to this barbeque with the team and their wives and girlfriends and stuff on Saturday?”

I hesitated for a second, I had seen some of these girls in magazines and on TV and if Katie was anything to go by I was nervous, but I thought I owed Nathan at least a barbeque. “Sure...there not like all...crazy are they?” I asked, slightly terrified.

He chuckled softly before responding, “No of course not, there are some really nice girls around...and then there are so bitchy ones. But I’ll take care of you.”

“Hmmm, I’m scared. Any bet they will all be drop dead gorgeous.” I said.

“Not as gorgeous as you, seriously you don’t see it do you?”

“What?” I asked.

“How freakin’ unbelievably sexy and beautiful you are.”

“Shut-up you’re such a loser.” I said hitting him playfully; he shook his head at me, like he couldn’t believe I didn’t see it.

“So Saturday?” I asked.

“Yeah. It’s at Richard Vermont’s house, just near darling harbour.” He said.

“Really, well it’s quite an interesting bunch of friends you have Nate, seriously football superstars who live in the most expensive suburb in Australia.” I joked.

“Uh yes, I do roll with the rich and famous but really I am just a lonely boy looking for somebody to love me.” He said lightly.

“Do you think I could be that somebody.” My tone dramatic.

“You already are miss Paris Lorre.” He said as he kissed me nose and I smiled at him.

“So should I bring anything? How do your people barbeques work?” I asked.

“Well we tend to all look ridiculously good, invite paparazzi, do interviews, have a threesome with your mate’s wife and her friend, you know the usual.” He joked.

“Haha, so funny Mr. Luken. How am I supposed to know what goes on?”

“Their normal people Paris just like me and you. Will sit down and chat and have a couple of drinks, etc.” He explained.

“Ooook, thankyou my darling boyfriend. But I better go, I do actually have to go to work today, when do you have practice next?” I asked.

“Have a practice at 2pm today; we never have afternoon practices it’s really weird.”

“Well I should be letting you sleep in.” I said as I attempted to get out of bed.

“No, come on just be a little late, your my little hot water bottle.” He said as he
playfully pulled me back under the covers.

“Well I would love to, but seeing as your ex-girlfriend spat on me and told everyone that we were having sex while you guys were together, I need to try not to fuck up again, at least for a little while.” I laughed, Nate didn’t, I realised that this was still pretty fresh for him.

“I’m sorry Nate I shouldn’t have said that. But it’s not your fault, it was sucks but it’s over and I’m the one that gets to snuggle up to you at night.” I said smiling.

“I just hate that she did that, seriously Paris you didn’t deserve it. She should be taking it out on me if anyone.”He said.

“This is officially not an issue anymore, I’m tired of complaining about it, it happened it sucked, and it’s over.” I said finally.

“Ok we’re done talking about.” Nate said finally.

“PARIS, come in here please?” Minnie yelled from her office, despite the fact we have phones to contact one and other she insists on bellowing.
I walked into her office, “Hi Minnie, what can I do for you?” I asked politely.

“Paris, I’ve just had an interesting off for you.” She relied mysteriously.

“Oh really and what’s that?”

“Well I’ve just had a call from our sister magazine in Paris, they were wondering if we wanted to send anyone over to Paris, like an internship.” She said.

“Oh ok. That’s nice of them.” I replied.

“Paris, I want to send you.” Minnie said.

“You want to send me to Paris? As in Paris, France?” I replied shocked.

“Yes, I’m trying to persuade you to go to Paris.”She answered.

“Me?” I replied dumbly.

“Yes, Paris it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. Where not asking you to go forever,
I’m only asking you to go for a few months. You don’t have to say yes right now, the option will there until the end of the year, but I would prefer you to go sooner rather than later before your promotion starts.”She explained.

Immediately I thought of Nathan, and I silently scolded myself. I promised myself that I would never answer to a boy, and here I was being offered the chance to go to Paris and all I can think about is waking up to next to Nathan exactly like this morning.
