As I’m walking near our table I see a man sitting with Catalina on the table “That’s Phil. Bruno’s partner in crime” Clarissa says to me. I cannot believe it, he’s using that so-called Phil now to have the chance to stay in our table, while Catalina won’t be alone. ”So they are all the same hehh? Stupid men” I say making Clarissa laugh. ”I just told you he’s Bruno’s partner in crime. Anything they do,they do it together. Phil stands behind Bruno’s actions always” she says and walks in front of me in the direction of our table. I Sit down next to Ben. ”Your food is here sir” Jeremy says leaving the plate in front of Bruno. Clarissa giggles knowing what I’ve done and Jeremy winks at me before walking away.Damn it, can they make it more obvious? As soon as Bruno tastes the food his face expression changes. He puts his hand over his mouth blocking himself to vomit. He barely excuses himself out of table and runs in the direction of the bathroom. Clarissa bursts out laughing. I give her a “shut the fuck up” stare. ”What happened?” Ben asks worried. ”Nothing, maybe he’s pregnant “ I say joking and Ben keeps a serious face. Of course, he’s more serious than a corpse. There’s no way I’ll ever date this guy. Bruno comes back sitting in our table. ”Sorry about that guys. Someone had touched the food before me” he says looking at me. I give him a “I don’t care that you know it was me” stare. ”Alright guys, now I don’t think we belong here. Let them enjoy their youth” my father says laughing and getting up along with my mom and Ben’s father. ”You’re leaving?” I ask them not wanting them to leave, because if Bruno dared to do all of this with them being here, I don’t want to imagine what it would be like after they leave. But they just nod and leave anyway. We are left alone. Clarissa, Ben, Bruno and I. Ben and Bruno start talking about stuff, specially for crushes and love. I don’t quite remember who mentioned kisses first but that gave Ben the idea. He turns to face me and after saying I was his crush, tries to kiss me but is interrupted by Bruno coughing. I wouldn’t allow Ben to kiss me in other circumstances but since Bruno is here playing this game, then I’d just go with it. ”I don’t mean to interrupt you guys but I think Ben doesn’t know it” Bruno says making my heart beating faster. What the hell is he planning to say to Ben? Ben looks at him waiting for Bruno to continue “You know this fall season, is not as good as it seems. Did you know that women have this thing whose name I forgot in their spit and it becomes dangerous during fall. This season stimulates it and it may cause many diseases. I read it somewhere. So I’m trying to avoid kissing during fall” Bruno says. WTF was that? That was the biggest bullshit I’ve ever heard. He cannot even make a proper excuse. ”Really? I did not know that. No more kissing I guess” Ben says laughing. OMG, I cannot believe he bought it. Clarissa tries to hold her laughter. Seriously, what Bruno just said, doesn’t make sense at all. ”But that cannot forbid us to go and watch ballet tomorrow night, right?” Ben asks me. Oh God, ballet? Really? I wanted to scream NO, but I cannot give Bruno the pleasure “Of course” I say smiling. ”Swan Lake ballet, is tomorrow” Ben says excited. Boring…sounds like napping time. ”Oh how I love Swan Lake ballet” Bruno says. Oh God, such a liar. Bruno watching ballet? That’s the biggest bullshit I’ve ever heard. He’s not a ballet kinda guy. ”You do? Awesome, why don’t you come with us tomorrow night then?” Ben asks him excited. What? No, no , no this cannot be happening. ”Absolutely, I wouldn’t miss a ballet for anything. Clarissa as my fan knows how much I love Birds Lake ballet” he says looking at Clarissa who awkwardly nods. ”It’s SWAN lake Bruno” I say correcting him. ”How I love it” he says continuing with this show. Liar, liar, liar I think to myself. He doesn’t even know the right title of the ballet. He just wants to ruin everything between Ben and I. I don’t know whether I should be mad or thank him for this. Honestly I’m not interested in watching ballet with Ben. ”Decided then. The three of us will go together tomorrow night” Ben says excited.
”Oh no, Bruno cannot stay alone tomorrow night. I’ve got a better idea” I say smirking. Two can play this game Bruno. He looks at me with a “don’t you dare” stare. ”Hey Catalina, do you wanna come with us as a double date tomorrow night to watch ballet?” I ask her from our table. ”YES” she says excited. I smile and turn to see Bruno mad. On fire. ”It’s a double date then” I say smirking while Bruno is killing me with his eyes.
“Ughh” I say walking in circles around my room. Clarissa is sitting on my bed enjoying this. ”I cannot believe it. What is he trying to do?” I say mad. ”Calm down girl. I think what Bruno is doing is very sweet. Ben is not the one for you” she says smiling. ”I’m not crushing on Ben either. I’m just…” I say, but Clarissa cuts me off “using him to make Bruno jealous” she says and I give her a death stare. ”Or pushing Bruno away is the right word” she says correction herself before I kill her. ”And what happens? Bruno and Ben are like Best Friends now” I say frustrated. I seriously cannot believe that they’ve become friends. Clarissa laughs. ”Listen, Bruno was MY idol and he fell in love with you. I ain’t even mad. Why are you? Forget Ben and go get Bruno” she says smirking. ”Hell no. If he wants war, he will have war. Lets see who loses” I say determined not to give him the pleasure. ”Seriously I don’t know how you two survived while being lost, hating each other this much” she says still laughing.
”Exactly, we hate each other” I say frustrated. ”You know what they say, between hate and love…” She starts with one eyebrow raised.
”Nothing, between hate and love nothing” I say still frustrated. I sit next to Clarissa and sigh “Tomorrow is going to be a long day” I say letting myself fall on the bed.
Anything you have to say, in my ask :)
