I woke up the next morning, the sun was streaming in through the hotel window and I felt the warmth of protective arms around me.  It took me a few seconds to realize that they were not Nico's, but instead I was tucked tightly into Chris with my head laying on his chest.  The memories from last night came flooding in and I squeezed my eyes shut hoping to black out the pictures of Nico and the sub in their scene.  How far did it go?  Did they...the thought made my heart hurt again, but I was determined not to cry again.  I already did enough of that.

I tried to make sense of it, something I couldn't attempt to do last night with all the emotions flowing through me.

Why would Nico send me those pictures?

"Finn?  Are you awake buddy?" Chris murmured softly.  I nodded my head.  "All of a sudden you started tensing up, so I thought you might be.  Are you alright?"

I lifted my head off his chest and slowly pulled away from him until I was sitting up cross legged in the bed.  "I'm okay," I shrugged.

"What happened last night?  What kind of text did you get?  I wasn't sure if I should wake Declan and Jaime, but you didn't seem to want to talk about it so I figured you needed rest more than anything."

I looked down, twiddling my fingers, what do I tell him?  I figured that I did owe him some sort of explanation.  "I got a text from my boyfriend, well, I think it was from my boyfriend, but it was pictures of him with another guy and I freaked out.  I'm really sorry Chris."

"Are you serious?  What a dick!  Why would he send you pictures like that?"

"I don't know, and he's not really a dick, he's not like that, I just don't understand why he would send them...or why he was with someone else."  I felt a few tears roll down my cheeks and Chris leaned up and wiped them away with his thumbs.

"The way I see it," he began, "you've actually got two issues to figure out.  One, why was he with someone else and two, who sent the pictures.  Were they like selfies or what?"

"No, they were from a distance, someone else had to have taken them."

"Okay, then who took them because maybe they sent them and not your boyfriend.  Maybe it was a friend of the guy in the picture?  Maybe they want you to break up with him so this guy can be with him."

I looked at Chris, his face showing true concern for me.  He was helping me to logically figure it out as a friend, not someone who wanted to take Nico's place.  I liked that, I really liked that.  I thought about what he was saying and it sounded pretty logical.  I mean, there are always tons of people, guys and girls looking at Nico like they wanted to eat him up...and there have been people who gave me dirty looks when they saw that he was with me.  So it had to be someone who knew who I was and could find my phone number on his phone.  I know that he had put me first on his contact list, but who did it.

"So what should I do?" I asked him.

"I think you should talk to your boyfriend before you make any decisions, find out if there's a logical explanation.  If you don't like his answers, then kick his ass to the curb and go out with me," he added with a wide grin.  I couldn't help but let out a small laugh.  "See, there's that killer smile," he teased as he poked me in the sides.

"Now come on, I hear Declan and Jaime talking out there, let's get moving so we can get to the Village early today.  There's a bunch of cool galleries you have to see."

"Thanks Chris," I said before we got up.  I leaned over and gave him a hug, "Thanks for being there for me last night.  I'm sorry if, umm, if it was weird or anything..."
