What are we pretending?/ Chapter Three
After a few days, still awful, except for Feliks and Toris, they help me whenever they can, but is not enough. But someone else has been helping me lately... Antonio.
Some days he spent his lunch time with me in the terrace and keeps me informed about Gilbert´s plans to torture me.
At least was Friday, no more school for the weekend. I was taking my stuff in front of my locker when…
Toni: Hola ___________, how are you been?
You: Fine… well you know… still suffering * I laugh nervous*
Toni: Well, I was wondering if you thought about my proposal?
You: About the secret date
Toni: Shuuust! Don´t say it so loud!
You: * I laugh* of course…. Well… yeah … think so..
Toni:Great! I will see you tomorrow, in this adress *he gives me a note* 3:00 pm, ok? See ya!
Then he gives me a kiss in my cheek…
You: Hey don´t do that!
Toni: Hahaha do what? You look like a tomato!
You: Shut up!
Ok then a secret date, how bad can it be! I think I should keep him on my side,at least seems to be what he wants, even behind Gilbert... still weird, but I´ll watch out if it is a trap…
- Later that day -
Finished the soccer training, feeling a little bit guilty since I couldn´t take ________ home… I hope she´s ok, but I could be kind of weird if I leave the practice again...
Francis: Hey guys, Arthur and I went a new place the other night, nice music, nice ambient, sexy girls… and boys
Gilbert: Stop that! is an awesome place! I get it!
Francis: We should go there to party all night long
Gilbert: Sure! but first let's play video games at my place, 3:00 pm, ok?
Francis: Of course...Toni 3:00 pm, ok?
Toni: Haa well… actually I planned to do something with… Lovino… I can´t … sorry guys
Gilbert: What?! But we always hang out on saturday to suffer the hangover together on sunday…
Francis. Why don´t you bring Lovino with us?
Toni: No, it´s something to do with Feliciano too, it´s complicated guys…
Gilbert: Ok, but you owe us one!
Toni: I'll do whatever you ask me another day * he smiled*
Francis: Whatever? Really? hummm *he smirked*
Gilbert: Hey you two perverts! Don´t flirt in front of me!
Toni: We are not…
Francis: Why? Are you jealous Gilbo?
Toni: Well I better be going , bye guys!
I´m not a good liar, definitely Gilbert suspects something, but _________ worth it
- Time skip -
Saturday, 3:23 minutes, when finally Toni came…
You: You are late
Toni: Am I? ohh sorry * he smiled*... You look angry
You: You think?
Toni: I´m really sorry, I will reward you
You: mmm... we will see
We started walking by the place he took me, the "Spanish Garden", a botanical park, very pretty. We spend all day talking, we had a picnic, he planned this really well. Toni is really funny, kind and friendly, I ´m changing my point of view of him, I couldn´t stop laughing with him… now he is talking about his childhood…
You: Hahahaha oh my!, are you serious?
Toni: Yes, Lovino did that to me… hahaha
You: He always does those kind of things! Why you still being friend of him?
Toni: I don´t know! hahaha
You: But Francis and Gilbert don´t helped you?
Toni: No really, sometimes I think they like to laugh of me too
You: They are bad friends!
Toni: Not it all, we are friends since we were kids, we are very close, they are my best friends, I really trust them * he looked down*
You: How do you meet them?
Toni: Was, actually was really funny… I thought that Francis was a girl…
You: What? Hahaha
Toni: It wasn't my fault, he looked like a girl until he was 12! but I remember that I went to talk with him , and ask if he want to be my “girlfriend”, because ”she” was really beautiful, I even gave him a flower… that was when I was 8…
Toni: And you don´t even know what happened to Gilbert!
You: What happened to him?
Toni: He thought that Feliks was a girl too, you know for the pink things, ponies, also he used skirts before…
You: WHAT? he didn´t tell me that!
Toni: Haha yeah! Gilbert and us, bullied him a lot! Until he dated Yekaterina, Ivan´s sister, that surprise us… cuz all of us wanted date her, cuz she have big boobs-
You: Ok, I get it! But how did you meet Gilbert?
Toni: First Francis and I become friends, when we saw Gilbert playing alone, sometimes with Ludwig, but he had not too many friends. So we invite him to play with us… we understood the why he didn´t like too much to others,he was selfish, stubborn, dominant, egocentric, conceited and cocky
You: But still-
Toni: But more than that he always was loyal with us and he would do anything for the people he cares, that´s why he became in our friend..
You: I don´t know what to say…
Toni: I do, tell me since when you like Gilbert?
You: What?! Why you think so???
Toni: *he smiled* Come on! Sometimes I caught you looking at us… well looking at Gilbert
You: That doesn´t mean that I like him!
Toni: Also I heard once, Bella asked you, "who do you like?” you answered…
You: Gilbert… but I said that before... now I don´t think the same
Toni: I see…
How he could noticed that? I liked, even with all the character defects that he have, but now is torturing me, so I hate him!
Toni: It was nice… next time we should go to other places, I know a place where make the best paella ever!
You: Sure.. why not? * I rolled eyes*
Toni: What happens?
You: Nothing, just I thought it wasn´t a date after all…
Toni: Why you say that?
You: You brought Gilbert´s theme to conversation
Toni: Ohh that, well I said that cuz… I think you likes him…
You: Sure! What a crazy theory you have!
Toni:*He looked down and smiled* It´s hard to explain now… and I know how it´s gonna sound, so I´ll tell you later. But consider this a date, preciosa, I think you are a pretty girl, but we will see how this going.
You: Think so
Suddenly I feel him really close and he kiss me one the lips, I couldn’t say a single word, he just say that he thinks that Gilbert likes me, but he is kissing me now, that´s no have sence…
Later he went like nothing happened and we'll continue pretending that we ignore each other.
Return to school at monday I was with Feliks and Toris at the cafeteria, when Toni sits in our table.
Toni: Hi! __________ hi guys
Feliks: what… are … you... doing here?
Toni: Well I thought eat with you, can I? *he smiled*
Everybody is watching us, and Gilbert have a "WTF!"face , and I just can think “Toni what are you thinking?”
