I couldn’t believe my eyes. So this is a trap! I looked at Jess.

‘Please don’t be mad at me. He made me do it. I can’t say no???’

I sighed. Bruno was on stage and his eyes were glued on mine. I saw Phil and he was smiling at me. Eric was behind the drums, Phred and Kenji and I saw Jamareo. He didn’t look at me. He was just focusing on his bass, getting ready to perform. I feel bad. The crowds went silent and Bruno started singing....

Hands over my head thinking 'what else could go wrong? Would've stayed in bed, how can a day be so long?.... Never believed that things happen for a reason... .But how this turned out, you moved all my doubts, oh believe........
That for you I'll do it all over again... .Do it all over again.............
All I went through, led me to you
So I'd do it all over again
For you.......

Why is he doing this? I was just about to get over everything and he showed up. I didn’t notice that tears were running down my face. It hurts me to see him up there. I got up and quickly ran to the bathroom. Jess called my name but I didn’t look back. I walked into the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror. Man! I looked horrible. I washed my face but still, I can’t hide those red eyes. The song was......something. When I think about it more, I just wanted to cry even more. Suddenly, somebody was tapping on my shoulder. I turned.




‘Babe....why are u crying?’ he took out some tissue and wiped my face. Then he laughed.


‘Why are u laughing? What’s so funny?’

‘Nothing. Just, u look like a reindeer. With the red nose and all’


‘I do not look like a reindeer! Well,you look like a......’ man, I couldn’t think of anything. He looked perfect.


‘Look like what? Huh?’


‘Okay. I give up. You look....sweaty’


He laughed a little. Then his face turned serious so suddenly. He touched my face. ‘How are u doing?’


I cleared my throat. ‘How am I doing? Well, let see. I’m doing great. Just great. Then u suddenly showed up here and sang that song to me......’ I took a breathe. ‘I’ve told you .........


‘That u need some time......yeah......and I did give you time. And that time was enough for me to write a song for you. You really think I’m gonna let you go just like that?’


‘I think u understand English..’




‘No....let me do the talking.It’s not easy for me, Bruno. I think this relationship is going nowhere....


‘Don’t u ever said that!’ He said with a deep tone. Hard. ‘You didn’t believe in us?’


‘You slept with another woman, Bruno! What do u want me to think about? You think I’m just gonna forget about it? Like it never happened??’


‘Okay, I’m sorry.I was drunk,right??? Besides after u left, she


‘So, everytime u’re drunk u’re gonna hook up with any random girls just like that? Hah!’ I turned my head away from him.


‘Cat......’ he pulled me and put his lips onto mine. I looked at him. ‘Bruno.......there’s so many paparazzi out there right now. It’s gonna be crazy. I know. I can feel it’


‘So what? Let them stay outside.’ he continue on kissing me. I tried to push him but just so suddenly I couldn’t have the energy to fight back so I kissed him too.


‘I want the world to know that I’m crazy about you. I’m crazy about you, Cat’




We both headed out from the bathroom and saw so many people outside waiting for Bruno. The guys were at the table talking to Jess and Tess. ‘So,you two lovebirds are back on?’ Phil spoke.


I looked at Bruno. My face went red. ‘What you two were doing back there, huh? What took u guys so long?’


The crowds were still there trying to get a glimpse of Bruno. Well, the place was freaking small and it was getting hot in there. ‘Do u mind if we crash your house?’ Bruno asked me.


‘Nah. I don’t mind. Let me call granny so she won’t get a heart attack’ I took out my phone and call granny.


‘And why would she?’ he frowned.


‘Seeing a house of hooligans barge into thehouse????’


‘Hah! She’ll get Mars attack!’ Eric butted in.


All of us trying to get our ways out of the coffee shop. Some fans were pulling Bruno’s shirt and all. A fan finally got her hands on Bruno’s hat. Bruno didn’t take it back but just pulled me to the door with him. We headed outside and we got into Phil’s car. The other guys got into their cars as well as Tess and Jessie. We promised to meet up at my house.


I turned back and looked out of the window. ‘Man, paps are following us. See those cars? I don’t want them to lining up in front of my house! Ain’t pretty’


‘Don’t worry. they’ll get tired soon’

‘Hey, I didn’t see Daniella and Karen. They’re not here?’

‘Nope. Daniella had to go back to New Jersey. Her sister got sick. Karen went with her’

‘Ohh...Why Jamareo didn’t go with her?’ Weird that Jamareo is here and not in New Jersey.

‘Phil and Bruno looked at each other. ‘Dunno. I’m confused with their relationship. I don’t know if they’re together or not’ Phil said.

Bruno nodded. ‘Yeah. Besides, Jam look  pretty down these days...Maybe they had a fight or something’

Omg! Don’t tell me that they fought because of me? I felt guilty about this. About kissing him. But I couldn’t tell Bruno. So far I didn’t tell a soul. But, did he tell about it to anyone?

‘Are u okay, Babe?’ Bruno looked at me from the front seat.

‘Umm...yeah yeah..I’m good!’ I gave a smile. He smiled back. Phil turned on the radio and Billionaire was on. Bruno sang it out loud.....

I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

And Phil joined in.

Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare...........

‘Come on, Cat. Sing it!’

‘For when I’m a billionaire!!!!’ I sang out.

We all laughed and continue on singing like we were on top of the world.


My house was full with smelly and sweaty guys. Eric, Phred, Phil, Jamareo were there not to mention Jessie and Tess. Kenji left early since he had to meet up with Lisa. Granny made tons of lasagne and yup, they ate them all. As they were busy eating all the foods that’s left in the kitchen, I pulled Bruno’s hand and led him to my room. I turned on the lights but Bruno turned it off back.

‘Awww...Come on!’ I turned it back on.

‘Babe, it’s more romantic in the dark’

I raised an eyebrow. ‘And since when are u becoming a romantic kinda guy?’

‘Baby, there’s a whole lot of side of me that u haven’t seen yet’ He put on a naughty smile.

‘And when can I see it?’

‘How about now?’ He pushed me down to the bed and started kissing me. I tried not to do this but he’s on top of me right now and I don’t have the strength to push him. We were rolling on the bed and things were getting hot as he tried to take off my clothes. He kissed my neck and it felt good. I pulled his hair and took off his clothes too. We made love and it felt just like our first time. Then suddenly there was a knock on the door. I got up. ‘Yeah???’ I screamed.

‘Cat,u need to come down now. There’s a guest’

I frowned. A guest? Who? I looked at Bruno. He was lying naked next to me and he raised an eyebrow.

‘Yeah. Okay. I’ll be down in a sec’

I quickly put on my shirt and shorts and tossed Bruno’s shirt to him. He put on his jeans and we walked downstairs hand in hand. I heard talking in the living room. We entered and I was shocked to see who it was.


‘Hey Cat’

It was my dad. I haven’t seen him since he got married and now he’s here? I don’t know what to think. Behind him was a girl about the same age as me. She looked at me and then looked at the person behind me.

‘Peter?’ She said, finally.
