Alex G’s POV
I stood at the airport, my arms wrapped around Kenzie, holding her body tight against mine, not ever wanting to let her go.
“We’re boarding” Dave said coming up behind her
“Come with me?” I begged
“You know I can’t” she looked up at me
“Please?” I tried again
“Nope. I’ll text you when I land”
“No. You’ll call me when you land” I corrected “I’ll miss you” I told her, bringing my lips to hers
“Me too” she mumbled. My arms tightened, pulling her against me, closer than before
“KENZIE!” we both looked around out the shout of her name. Both Alex’s, Dave and Joey were at the gate, waving her over impatiently
“I’ll see you later” she smiled and pulled away from me. As she joined the guys, my eyes narrowed when DeLeon put his arm around her shoulders and looked back at me and smiled before he pulled her into the tunnel, not letting her look back at me.
“Hey babe” I smiled as I answered my phone almost a week later
“Hey, how’s work going?” she asked, but she sounded distracted
“Good. Almost done actually” I told her “So I was thinking if we get this finished early, maybe we can go away for a few days. You know, maybe rent a car and go up to San Fran or maybe Vegas?”
“That sounds like fun” she mused
“Kenzie, what’s wrong?” I instantly knew something was wrong when she didn’t say anything about my Vegas comment.
“Um I can’t meet up with you this week”
“Why not?” I asked, suddenly suspicious of Alex
“I have to fly back to Miami”
“Why? What’s going on?” I pressed
“My mom’s sick and I need to go home” The tone of her voice made me realise her mom didn’t just have the flu.
“Do you want me to come with you?”
“No, I should only be a few days, I’ll meet up with you in London”
London was where we were meeting The Cab to start the tour, but I was hoping if Kenzie was already with me in LA, then she’d fly with us instead of going back to Vegas and flying with them. I was starting to notice Alex’s growing attachment to Kenzie and I didn’t like it. I felt it went way beyond friends and I didn’t want him near my girlfriend if he was having not-so-just-friends- feelings about her.
“Ok babe” I sighed “if you want me there, just say the word and I’ll be on the first flight out”
“Thank you, but I’ll be fine. Go have fun in LA” A few minutes later we said our goodbyes and I walked back onto set.
