Well, today, Alex and Victoria are going to officially meet the Smosh Crew. Even though they already told me that they watch all the channels and videos, they finally get to meet them in person. It is about 9:30am. Victoria and Alex are still asleep I think, but I’ve been up for about an hour. I made coffee, cleaned up a little bit, and even had time to go buy some donuts. Alex woke up first. She came into the kitchen/dining room area and fed her dog Mack.
“Good morning, Mari.” she said in a cheery manner.
“Good morning, Alex. I got donuts and made coffee.” She smiles and walks over to grab a donut and some coffee. I don't know why but, I can’t stop thinking about what Victoria and I talked about last night. Alex notices something off about me.
“Crap, I’m not that good at hiding things especially when it bugs me,” I think.
“Something wrong?” she asks.
As I eat my donut and coffee in silence, something seems to be bugging Mari.
“Huh?..Oh...uh...it’s n-nothing just...thinking,” she replies. That’s not what’s wrong I can tell, it’s something else.
“Mari, you can tell me anything. I promise not to tell any--,”
“I’m sorry!!! You don’t deserve to be treated like that! Men should be thrown in jail for 100 years or more for doing something like that!!! I’m sorry you had to go through that, Alex!” Mari cries.
“Wh-what? How do you--, Victoria told you, didn’t she?” I asked, not surprised.
“Yeah, but don’t get mad at her. She just wanted to let me know about it and she made me promise not to tell anyone. Trust me, I won’t! I will let you do that, if you want to of course. I’m sorry.”
I sigh then smile, “It’s okay Mari, I was going to tell you at some point, but I’m glad Victoria did it for me. Otherwise I might have just blown it off. Just, yeah don’t tell anyone yet.”
“I promise, Alex.” Mari says and gives me a hug.
Victoria walks in and sees us hugging, “Is something wrong?”
“Is something wrong?” I ask. Alex and Mari break their hug and turn towards me.
“Thank you, Victoria. Thanks for telling Mari for me. I probably would have blown it off like all the other things I should have done or said,” Alex says walking over to me.
“I accidentally told her, but it’s okay now,” Mari says following her. Before I could say anything Alex wraps me in a bear hug and soon after, Mari joins in too. We sit there in silence, hugging for a few minutes, our food getting cold.
Alex breaks away first saying, “So, enough hugging, let’s eat, get ready, and head to Smosh HQ and meet everyone!”
“Yes, ma’am!” Mari and I say together and laugh.
It’s about 11:30am by the time Mari, Alex and I finally get ready. Mari is wearing a plaid flannel top with black skinny jeans and red high-top converse. Alex is wearing a dark red t-shirt with black ripped skinny jeans and black converse. I am wearing a white crop top with blue ripped skinny jeans and purple vans.
We get in Mari’s car and head to Smosh HQ. Alex gets shotgun so I have to sit in back.
“So, what’s the game plan Mari?” I ask.
“Well when we get there, I can show you guys around and meet everyone along the way. We will end up in our usual gaming room and you guys are going to join us in either a Game Bang or Grand Theft Smosh. When we are done, we will have to play by ear.”
“Sounds good,” Alex says.
“Oh and guys, one more thing.” Mari adds.
“Yeah?” I say and Alex turns to Mari.
“It’s about the guys. Anthony recently broke up with his now ex-fiancé, Kalel, and it’s affecting not only himself but also everyone around him too, so if anyone seems weird or down, don’t stress about it too much, okay? No one really talks about it.”
“Oh, no problem, we won’t say anything,” I say.
“Yeah, I promise,” Alex adds.
“Yeah I promise,” I add.
“Good, now let's be happy and excited!” Mari says as she turns on the radio. Mari and Victoria are singing along to “Worth It” by Fifth Harmony. I sit there staring out the window just thinking about what Anthony must be going through.
“I’m kinda going through the same thing, breaking up with someone you thought you loved. It sucks,” I think to myself. My phone vibrates and I look down to check it, and it’s a message from Victoria,
“Is something wrong? Ur quiet.”
I reply saying, “No I’m fine just thinking.” I realize that I am being a bit more quiet than usual so I sing along to the song with my friends.
When we reach the office, I pull into my usual parking spot and turn the car off. Victoria, Alex, and I get out of the car and they follow me towards Headquarters. Once we step inside, we are immediately greeted by Sohinki.
“Hey guys nice to see you again,” he says.
“Hey Sohinki! What’s up?” Victoria says and Alex waves frantically saying hi.
I smile, “Hey Sohinki, where is everyone?”
“Upstairs. I think they are doing a lunchtime right now. Everyone is doing it, and I mean everyone. Except me and you because we are down here, but we can join. They have enough food to feed two big, huge, huge families! Alex and Victoria can come too and meet everyone.”
I look over to my friends, “So do you wanna go?”
Alex and Victoria exchange a smile, “Of course!” they say together.
Sohinki leads the way to where the entire crew is. When we reach the others, they turn and smile and welcome us in, even Alex and Victoria.
“Hey guys! This is Alex, and this is Victoria.” I say, pointing to them.
“Alex, Victoria, this is Lasercorn, Joven, Flitz, Wes, Shane, Noah, Keith, Olivia, Courtney, Ian, and Anthony. I know that you know them from the channels but this is them in person.” I point to each person as I say their name. The Crew (A/n: what I’m going to call them every now and then) says hello to Victoria and Alex each in their own way. When Ian at the end, I notice that he is trying to act cool but its not working and Anthony was totally bummed a second ago and now that face is gone. Strange.
“Huh, I’ve never seen them like this before, it’s actually really funny,” I think to myself and laugh quietly.
Mari introduced us to her friends. Alex seems like someone you can get along with and is just fun to be around. She is so humble and has a big heart and honestly, she is really pretty, maybe not my type though... Victoria, on the other hand, well, she’s just amazing! She has beautiful hair and her eyes are like diamonds! And the most beautiful smile I have seen in the world, it’s what I love most about her! Even though we just met, she is just perfect! I need to get to know her better!
Mari brought her old friends and introduced them to us. Victoria is very caring and understanding. She knows right from wrong and will try her best to do the right thing, I can tell. She is very pretty but not really my type. Alex though was just one word: perfect. Her eyes are what get me though. They are as bright and blue as the sky on a beautiful sunny day. And I can tell that she is a kid at heart just by the way she talks to everyone. So cheery and fun, but she has a mature side, I know it. Even though we just met, she is just perfect! I need to get to know her better!
