Chapter 7

For a few hours we were both silent. I couldn't stand it anymore though I didn't want what could possibly be my last day with Bruno to be like this. "For all it's worth, that was a pretty good picture of us." I said with a laugh. He looked at me like I was crazy. "Really? You're already going to laugh about this? It's not funny. This is going to be aweful for both of us." He said with an angry look on his face. "Sorry but I didn't want my last memory of you to be us sitting right beside each other on a plane not talking to each other." I said. "No, I'm sorry. I just....nevermind." He said. "No, tell me. I want to know." I said. "I'm just mad that I have to lose you and the stupid paparazzis make me mad, but I'm mostly mad about losing you." He looked at me, "You're the best thing that's ever happened to me." He said. "Don't say that! You're making me want to cry!" I said. "Well, it's true. I love you." He got down on one knee and pulled out a little red box. He opened it and pulled out a beautiful diamond ring. "And I want to be with you forever." He said. Everyone on the plane had been staring at us and when he pulled the ring out they all awwwwed at the same time and I started crying. "Bruno....this is crazy. I love you and I want to be with you forever too, but are you sure? I mean you still have your whole carreer in front of you." I said. "Oh forget about that! I love you!" He said. I started crying even harder. "Well what do you say?" He asked. "Yes! Without a doubt, yes!" I said. I was about to hug him but he grabbed me, pulled me into the isle and we started dancing. After thirty minutes almost everyone was dancing with us and Bruno got out his guitar and started playing and singing. Then the flight attendants brought out a few bottles of champagne and some cake and by the end of the flight it was pretty much just a big party. It was by far the best flight I've ever had. When we had to sit down for the landing Bruno leaned over and whispered in my ear. "When we get off we'll go seperate ways so noone sees us together. There'll be a cab out front that'll take you home. I'm really sorry but this airport has paparazzis everywhere and if we get seen together again we'll become the next big celebrity couple. After you and Chris break up just give me a call and we'll meet somewhere to start planning the wedding. And don't break up with Chris as soon as you get home that'll make him suspisious." He said. "Wow, you have this all planned out don't you?" I said. "Yeah, I do. But we have to have a plan so no one finds out the whole  story." He said. "Alright, whatever you say." I said. When we got to the airport I started to walk away, I was trying not to turn around because I knew that if I did I wouldn't be able to leave him. I heard someone running behind me but I thought it was one of the kids that had been on the flight until I felt someone grab me by my waist and hug me. When they finally let go I turned around and found myself staring into Bruno's dark brown eyes, then he pulled me close to him and kissed me. "What happened to not being seen together?" I asked. "No one can see us. We're still in this tunnel thing." He said with a grin. "True. Wait. I just thought of something. Won't everyone that was on the plane tell people that you're engaged?" I asked. "Nope, I took care of that while you where in the bathroom. I told them that if the could keep their mouths shut they could come to the wedding." He said. "Smart boy." I said with a smile. We kissed one last time before saying goodbye and I walked towards the luggage pickup alone. I got in my cab and about thirty minutes later my phone vibrated,I looked at the screen and saw I had a text from Bruno. I really didn't want to look at it because I already missed him so much and I knew it would just make me miss him more but I couldn't ignore him. I decieded to read it later and I sent him a text saying that I missed him but I couldn't text right now. When I got home Chris was sitting on the couch waiting for me. I walked into the kitchen and looked in the fridge for something to eat, when I turned around Chris was leaning against the bar staring at me. "How was your business trip?" He asked. "It was good, long, but good." I said trying not to look him in the eyes. "Just one more question. can you explain this?" He said throwing the issue of people magazine with me and Bruno on the cover on our table. "Oh yeah, Bruno Mars was at one of our confrences. There were a bunch of celebrities there." I said. "Ok, I believe that. But I thought you were going to New York. This picture was taken at a beach." He said. "Yeah, we flew into New York and stayed for a while then they surprised us and took us to Hawaii. And I read the article inside. I'm not sure why it says we're a couple. But you know paparazzis trying to make everything into a good story." I said. "Well, I'm going to go get something to eat. I'll be back later, do you want anything?" "No, but I'm going to come with you. If that's ok." He said. "Uh yeah, sure. Let me get my keys." I said. I was really mad at Chris now. I wasn't really going to get something to eat. I was going to go somewhere so I could text Bruno without being interogated. Chris was one of those guys that always had to know what you were doing, where you were, who you were with, who you were texting, why you were gone so late, stuff like that. He usually had billions of questions and I was really surprised that he had let the magazine thing go so easily. I had expected him to be asking me questions about it for weeks, not that I'm going to complain about it though. I walked back into the kitchen and Chris asked me if I wanted to go to a movie. "Um sure, I guess so." I said thinking that maybe it would give me a chance to call or text Bruno. I grabbed my jacket and walked outside, I sat in the car for five minutes then I walked back inside to see if Chris was coming or not. When I opened the door Chris was sitting at the kitchen table looking at his phone or at least I thought it was his phone, but when I got closer I realized he was going through all the texts and recent calls on my phone. I grabbed it out of his hands. "What are you doing?" I asked. "I was just looking to see who you've been talking to recently." He said making it sound like it was no big deal. "Ok that's called invading someone's privacy and that's one of the worst things you can do in a relationship." I said. "Well lying and not telling each other things is pretty bad too! Who's smiley face?" He asked. At first I had no idea what he was talking about but then I remembered that instead of putting Bruno's name on his contact in my phone I had put a smiley face (incase something like this happened). "It's this lady I met at the conference business trip thingy. I had her number and we talked a little bit but I forgot her name so I just put a smiley face." I said. "Oh ok, I'm sorry." He said. When we got to the movie theater I looked at my texts from Bruno really fast. Luckly I had deleted all of them except for one he had sent me a few hours ago saying that he was back home. After a while Chris leaned over and tried to kiss me but before he did I jumped up, "Um I'm going to go get some popcorn." I said. I ran out of the theater and walked towards the bathroom. I couldn't stand being with Chris anymore, when I was with him now it felt like I was cheating on Bruno and I hated thinking about that. Bruno didn't deserve this, he should be with some famous chick not a girl who he can hardly be with because she cheated on her boyfriend with him. I didn't get it, why hadn't he just forgot about me when I told him I had a boyfriend? I guess he really is in love with me. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and called him. After we talked for a while he asked me if I had broken up with Chris yet. "No, but I'm going to soon." I said as I walked out of the bathroom. "I can't stand him anymore. I can't believe I stayed with him for so long! Well I love you, see you soon." As I walked around the corner that led to the back hall where the theater was I bumped into someone. I looked up and saw Chris. "Hey, where ya headin?" I asked. He just shook his head. "I heard you talking to someone." He said. "I uh, it was just..." I said trying to come up with an explanation. "Yeah that's what I thought. Take me to my mom's house." He said. I was so excited, maybe he was breaking up with me! "I'll stay the night there for a while and I'll be back next week, when I've hopefully forgotten about this." He said. "Grrrrr I guess I'm just going to have to do this the hard way" I muttered. "What was that?" He asked. "Oh nothing...nothing at all." I said with a fake smile.
