1 week 5 days. EEEPP!! I was getting so excited I've already been shopping so I have all new clothes, shoes, and jewelery for when I got visit Niall. I was at the mall with tons of bags finishing my last shopping trip. I don't really know how I'm going to fit everything in my bag. I'll probably have to bring two, but that's besides the point. When I was walking out to my car, guess who was pulling in right next to me. The one and only Gino, awesome. I tried to ignore him but that didn't work out well since he was basically screaming my name.
"LISAMARIE! LISAMARIE! LISAMARIE!"
"Oh my god what?!"
"Just wanted to say hi."
"Then you could of just walked up to me and said hi rather than screaming across the parking lot."
"You were ignoring me, and don't deny it."
"Fine. Obviously I was going to ignore you, you kicked me out of you car like a month ago."
"Right, well I'm really sorry baby."
"Please don't call me baby."
"Ohhhh that's right you have a boyfriend." he said this and made air quotes around boyfriend.
"Fine, he's not exactly my boyfriend, but trust me we're more than friends."
"Oh so you guys made up?"
"Sure did, I'm actually going to visit him in 12 days."
"Visit him? He's not from around here?"
"Obviously not if I said I was going to visit him."
"Alright little miss attitude. If he's not from around here then what state does he live in?"
"He actually lives in another country."
"Oh, alright what country then?"
"Well, he is from Ireland and but he lives in London."
"Ok, please act like you don't believe me."
"I'm not acting. What's his name?"
"I can't tell you." Niall and I never discussed talking about each other, but I don't think it was safe, I didn't want rumors or anything to start so only Mel knows obviously.
"Didn't think so. So since your boy toy is over seas, why don't you come to lunch with me."
"I don't think that would be appropriate."
"Come on, it's just lunch, we're not having sex...unless you would want to!" Gino said with a wink.
"Yeah because I would have sex with you again, you're saying that just makes me want to hang out with you less."
"Come on, you know I was kidding. Please just have lunch with me just this one time and I'll leave you alone."
"Fine, but you're buying."
"Anything you want baby!"
"Sorry, old habits die hard."
"Well I'll help you kill them."
"Very funny, now come on. Let's go to our diner."
"Not our diner anymore G. Just a diner, ok?"
"Fine, whatever you say, now hop in."
"No, I think I'll follow you in my car, but thanks."
"Right, see ya there."
We got into our separate cars and drove off. He was driving really fast, I'm pretty sure to show off. Not feelin' it. I prefer safe drivers like Niall. God, I can't wait to see him! Now I just need to get through this lunch date. Wait no, this wasn't a date. And I was probably going to have a miserable time. Right? Yeah, it's Gino. I hate him...kinda. Ugh. I pulled into the parking lot and Gino was already there leaning against his car. He's so annoying.
"Finally, I've been waiting for like an hour." Gino said as I walked up to him.
"Yeah I bet! You're a terrible driver."
"I'm a great driver, I got here before you didn't I?"
"Whatever lets go."
We got in and Gino started making his way towards our usual booth.
"Let's sit over here!"
"No, at lets just sit where we usually do. It's not a big deal."
"Fine." I said while walking over with my arms crossed.
"Chill out girl."
"Kind of hard when I'm around you."
"So I still drive you crazy huh?"
"No, you wish. I hate being around you."
"If you hated being around me so much then why are you here?"
"So you would leave me alone. This was a lot easier than calling the police for harassment."
"You wish I was harassing you!"
"Gino, I don't want to fight. I just want to get over with this lunch and go our separate ways."
We ordered lunch, and talked. It wasn't really that bad. We talked a lot about old memories and we laughed a lot too. It almost felt like old times, which is what I was afraid of. He had this way of sucking people in and making them feel wanted. But I couldn't fall for it, not again. I was basically with Niall now and he made me feel safe, wanted in a good way, he was respective, he was protective but not controlling, and in all around good guy. Not to mention talented, handsome, and a great kisser. Gino and I were just about done and he was paying. I thanked him and we walked out together.
"That was fun." Gino said.
"Yeah it wasn't too bad."
"Oh stop. You know you had a good time. It wasn't terrible at all and we had some good laughs about the past."
"I don't have one. But stop acting like I'm always the bad guy. You broke up with me, remember?"
"That's all in the past, and like I said we could have new and better future."
"Gino I'm sorry but I don't see any kind of future with you. Not even as friends."
"Lisamarie, please. Just give us another chance, you won't be sorry."
"I'm sorry but like you told me before, the relationship I have with someone else deserves a chance. I think if we were meant to be we would of stayed together. You broke my heart."
"And you broke mine, and your breaking it again!"
"See, we're just not good for each other."
"No, Gino I won't stop and I really need to get go-" Gino shut me up with a kiss. I would be lying if I said I didn't feel anything. But I didn't feel what I felt with Niall and I was relieved. "GINO!"
"Tell me you didn't feel anything."
"I felt sadness. I miss Niall and I can't believe you did that!" Ooppps, I said his name.
"Niall, huh? Does he kiss you like this?" Then Gino kissed me again, he had one arm tight around me and he was grabbing my butt. I tried to wiggle free but it was hard.
"GET AWAY FROM ME!"
"We'll see how long you and this Niall kid lasts. No one knows you like I do, and you defiantly haven't lost all feelings for me."
"I hate you." I said through me teeth.
"See ya later baby!" Gino said as he got in his car and drove off.
I was still standing there in shock. I can't believe that just happened. What do I do now? Do I tell Niall? What if he ends whatever this is? I didn't kiss back though! I needed Mel. I got in my car drove straight home and texted Melanie saying, '911 need you over here ASAP!' Hopefully she'll be able to help me sort all of this out. I just wish Niall was here so I could be in his arms.
