Emily and I walked across the street in our brand new heels to the club across the street.
"Emily, i'm not so sure about this. What if i just meet another jerk like last time?"
"Don't worry, you'll be fine..! I heard there are great men here! "
"If you say so..." When we walked into the club, Emily went straight to the dance floor and dissapared. "So much for sticking together..." I went over to get a drink, and turned around to knock over someones drink over. "OMG, I am so sorry, i just got here, and.... oh my god. im so sorry, can i get you a new drink?"
"hahaha, it's okay, don't worry. Guys should be buying drinks for girls, arent they?" the guy had beautiful eyes, and curly hair.... and he smelt really nice. I could feel myself blushing.
"I'm sorry.!" I still felt so guilty about it.
"I'll forgive you, if you tell me your name"
"My name's Lisa, what's yours?"
"Bruno. And I gotta go now. How about we exchange numbers? I know we just met, but I'd love to get to know you and I'd love to see that beautiful face of yours" then he flashed a wonderful smile, so I gave him my phone, and he gave me his. After we gave each other our phones back, He kissed me goodnight and left. I didn't feel like dancing after that so i left early. I got back to my apartment, and laid on my bed. All I could think about was Bruno. Everything about him was perfect. His hair, smile, smell and his dimples. I wanted to call him so badly, but would that seem desperate? I glanced at the clock; 11:45PM, it was still pretty early. He couldn't be asleep yet. I scrolled down my contacts list, and just as I was going to dial Bruno's number, I got an in coming call.
"Hello?" I tried to sound like i was busy, but it turned out to sound eager.
"Hello there beautiful. I didn't think you'd be able to pick up the phone. I would've thought you'd still be out partying and dancing with some other guy" Bruno's voice sounded like an angels.
"Naaah, I left early. I wasn't in the mood for dancing. You were the only one that caught my eye tonight" I threw the last part in, just to see if he was interested or not.
"I'm glad to hear that, because you were the only one that caught my eye to. I know you're dieing to see me again so why don't we-"
"me? dieing to see you again? I think you're talking about your self. hahaha"
"Whatever... are you busy tomorrow? I want to grab some breakfast. What about 7:00AM at Wonderful Waffles downtown?"
"That sounds great! I'll see you then okay?"
"okay, good night beautiful"
"Goodnight" I clicked the phone off, and laid in bed. I was so tired, yet so excited for tomorrow. What would I wear? would he show up? I as about to go to sleep, until I heard someone shouting and jumping up and down above me. Could it be? Bruno?
"Bruno, shut up. You know, we aren't the only people living here. There are people downstairs that are trying to sleep" I hated how Phil said it.
"Chill out man, im just so excited. The girl I met tonight is having breakfast tomorrow with me" I was so excited, I could feel myself grinning,
"Man I haven't seen you like this before. You only talked to her for what, 5 minutes? and now here you go, acting like a teenager." I didn't care what Phil said, I had to get some sleep for my breakfast date with Lisa. I ran my fingers through my hair and thought to myself "tomorrow will be a great day.
RING RING! I slammed my hand onto my alarm clock. 6:30AM. Dammit, I slept in! I ran to take a quick shower, and picked out an outfit to wear. Faded flare jeans, flip flops and a tube top. I threw my wet hair into a quick bun, grabbed my bag and left for downtown.
I grabed my phone out as soon as I sat down. Where is bruno? It was 7:15AM already, and it was his idea to come here. I finished my water, grabbed my bag. 7:35AM now, and I was so stupid to think a guy I barely knew would come eat breakfast with me. Whatever. I started walking, until someone started yelling at me.
"Lisa! Lisa! Wait! I'm Sorry I'm late!" I turned around to see Bruno panting, but dressed really nicely.
"Bruno, It's 7:36AM now, and you basically stood me up. I'm not going to wait half an hour for you to come here." I started to turn around, when Bruno grabbed my arm and pulled my into his car, that was parked right beside us. "What the hell is this for? Bruno, I don't have time for this!"
"shhhh, shut up. Let me explain. I couldn't get to sleep at all last night, so I wrote a song for you. I know, I know. I don't know you at all, but your face was unforgetable. and that's why im late. Are you mad?"
"Wow Bruno, I don't know what to say" I could feel the tears forming in my eyes. I barely knew this guy, and here he was singing a song that he had wrote for me. As he was singing, his voice was beautiful. "Bruno that was amazing. I can't believe this, You wrote this for me?"
"Yeah beautiful. This song is for you, and you only. now how about we go grab some breakfast?" he smiled, and I couldn't resist. We left the car and and I got pancakes, while bruno got waffles. When the server handed Bruno his waffles, she winked at him.
"Uhmm, did you see that?" I felt kind of jealous. I mean, Hello! I was sitting RIGHT across from bruno.
"Oh that wink ? yeah I get that all the time. What,? Wait, ahahah, are you... JEALOUS?" Bruno started laughing his head off, and I couldnt help but to laugh with him.
"Maybe. Just eat your waffles, and shut your mouth." He started going on, and on about his music and how nothing's going anywhere. It was really nice, just hearing him talk, until he asked some questions about myself.
"so, does a beautiful woman like you have a boyfriend?"
"hahaha, No. I am single but I am looking for someone...."
"You know, you don't have to poke around the bush. I know you're interested in me. I saw you checking me out last night. But, let's get to know each other more." Bruno was right. We just met and I was trying to hook up with him already. We finished up our breakfast quickly after that and walked out onto the street. Then Bruno got a call.
"Wait hold on, I think it's my cell phone" He grabbed his phone out of his pocket and stared at his screen for awhile before answering. "Hi.... yep. no, I’m busy right now.... I don't care what you say.... yeah I know... I remember... look, stop calling me all the time, I already promised you, what else do you want me to do?" he shut his phone off.
"What's wrong? You seem kind of worked up about something.
"It's nothing, don't worry" bruno smiled to try to reassure me that everything was okay, but I knew something was wrong.
"Hmmm okay. Why don't we just go back to my place now, I mean it's still really early in the morning, we have lots of time, don't we?" I tried giving him a seduction face, but it came out more morphed then I planned.
"That'd be great, but I think my place is closer, it's a couple blocks down. and I don't want to waste that much time driving to your house" so much for taking things slow, but it didn't matter to me, I didn't mind.
We got to his house, and things got started fast. I threw my hands into his hair as we started kissing passionatly. The way he smelt, and the way everything felt, was like magic. I took Bruno's shirt off, fast as well as his pants. Bruno started licking my ear which drove me crazy. He took my clothes off, as we made love.
Someone slammed the door shut, and yelled."BRUNO.. WHAT THE HELL IS THIS! AND WHO THE HELL IS THIS? WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE. SLEEPING WITH MY BOYFRIEND?"
"uhhhhhh..." I didn't know what to say, I wasn't even sure if I could speak. I felt humiliated and embarrased.
"Chanel, listen, I can explain..." Bruno started, but was cut off. He looked like he was going to baawl his eyes out.
Chanel looked at Bruno "I'm done with this Bruno, this always happens" and left the house.
"Are you fuckin kidding me Bruno,I tried my hardest to keep back my tears. After all this, I didn't want him to see that I was in love with him. Bruno looked at me with his sad eyes, but I knew they weren't sad about me. I couldn't believe I fell for an asshole like this.
"Lisa, I'm sorry. I didn't want you to find out about this, this way. But I can explain!"
"Explain what Bruno! That you already had a girlfriend, and you just wanted to play with someone’s heart?!?! You're such an asshole!" I ran out the front door with tears streaming down my face. I didn't know where to go, and where I was going, but I knew I didn't want to stop. Birds were chirping, and the sun was way high in the sky. I felt like crap, and I had to call work to say I wouldn't show up. Until I got a call. It better not be that asshole..... and it wasn't.
I read my phone: Emily
"Em, listen I'm not in the mood for talking."
"Rawr, what's wrong with you? Shouldn't you be happy? What happened between you and Bruno? Tell me everything that happened!!" I didn't want to tell her about Bruno, I never wanted to talk about him ever again, but I didn't want her to worry about me.
"Just forget him. What happened between you and Phil?" Emily went on and on. She was so happy, which made me feel jealous. I had stopped running, but I hadn't stopped crying.
"Lis, are you crying? Wait.... what the hell did Bruno do to you?!?!? Where are you?" I didn't hear the rest, I didn't want to. All I know is, I didn't want to go to my apartment, where I was so happy earlier. So many questions were running through my head right now but I didn't want to listen to them.
