I didn’t turn the TV since I got back and got the gossip sites out my laptop for a while so that way I didn’t get to see his life in pictures.
One day, I was talking to Nathalie on the phone when someone knocked on my door.
It was the mail man; he brought a package for me…
“A package? From who?”
“I don’t know. It’s from USA.”
I took the envelope that was on the top of the little box, opened it and the only thing I could read was…
We have the joy to welcome you to our team, you’re the newest membert of New York’s Vogue magazine. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“I’m in… I got the job.” I told Nathalie in a whisper.
“GOD! I TOLD YOU! CONGRATULATIONS!” She screamed on the phone. “Wait… you applied for two jobs, didn’t you?”
“Yes, but I just got one of them.”
“I bet is the photography one.”
“It is, actually.”
“Damn! It’s beacuse you’re so good at it!”
“Thank you… I don’t know if I will accept it, anyway.”
“Nathalie… The only way I have to handle my failed relationships is by getting distant, you know that.”
“Wait.. WHAT?! You’re not rejecting that amazing job because of a jerk! You hear me?! I’M NOT GOING TO LET YOU DO THAT!! YOU’VE ALWAYS DREAMED ABOUT THIS!!! COME ON!”
“I know… But what if I got to see him on a photoshoot? Or in party? Or in a simple coffee shop? I won’t be able to see him and don’t kiss him. He meant so much to me.”
“Girl… You’re strong and I know you’ll get over him. And I’ll be with you most of the time so I could make you behave yourself…” Nathalie promised me.
We hung up a little later and I just went for a walk to cleared my mind. I didn’t think going to New York was the right thing, I didn’t even feel like that was my pure bliss at the moment.
Suddenly my phone began to ring… I hesitated to answer because that couldn’t be good for me but I did it. I couldn’t help it.
“Hi! How are you?” He said on the other side of the line.
“What do you want?”
“Hey, don’t be rude to me. I’m the cute funny one, remember?” Joe said trying to make me smile. “Why are you so moody today?”
“I’m not moody. I just want to know why you are calling.”
“Can’t a guy call his friend just to say hi?”
“I don’t think that be okay with your brother.”
“Frankie got over you a long time ago, you know?”
“I’m serious.” I said with a little roughness.
“Joe. I’m not kidding.” I told him trying not to shout. “It still hurts, so don’t mess with me, pretty boy!”
