Run For Your Money

Genevieve Valentius Is like any normal teenager; high school drama, boys and searching for the love of her life. But she doesn't realize that she already found him, on the day that she was born. She meets Baldassare, who leads her out of her comfort zone, pushing her to her limits, showing her who she really is. But the question is, will she open herself up enough to realize what has been right in front of her since birth?


5. Well That Was Fun


I put Evie down and Alex comes over. My palms start to get clammy.

"You ok?" Evie whispers.

"No! I am freaking out! Alex is here and I am so freaking nervous."

"It's fine. Just pretend that he's not here. Just you and me."


I wave at Alex and he gets a little red. Well at least he feels the same way.

I glance at Bass and he is looking at Evie very carefully. I don't understand. I forget about and turn my attention to Evie.

"So love. Are you ready to go?"

"Whenever you are, chap."

I laugh. "We will see you see you at Jo's, ok?" I say.

"Ok. See ya there, Viktor" Alex says.

We walk to my car, arms hooked and get in. Before I even start the car, Evie looks at me and says "You really like Alex!!"

I try to hide the heat rising in my cheeks but I can't. "I already know he doesn't like me so what's the point."

"Are you crazy?!? Alex is like drooling all over you!"


"Yeah! It's really obvious!"

Suddenly I get a burst of confidence. "Thanks Ev. I'm glad you are my best friend."

"Awe shucks. Thanks hun."

We arrive at Jo's around 7pm. Most of the team is here already. I hop out and see Alex talking with Bass across the parking lot. I start to head over there with Evie next to me.


"Oh shit..." Alex mumbles.

"What?" I ask.

"Viktor is walking over here."

"And why are you worried?"

"Because he looks smoking and I am so-so."

Alex has his reddish- brown hair shaggy and messy. He is wearing a polo with plaid shorts, while Viktor is wearing a pair of black pants and a white, short-sleeved button up with black suspenders and a bow-tie. If I was gay, I would be all over him.

"Here he comes."

"Dude relax.Pretend your talking to me. And you look great. I'm the one that should be worried."


"Because I look like shit... I'm starting to sound like you!!" I punch him on the shoulder, playfully.

He laughs and pulls a comb from his pocket and starts messing with my hair.

"What are you doing?" I ask.

"Fixing you up."


He hands my a bottle. "Spray this in your mouth and then roll up the sleeves on your shirt."

I do what he says. I am wearing a button up and black shorts with Sperry's. The spray is minty and tastes good. All of a sudden, Alex sprays me with something.

"Dude, what was that?"

"Man spray. The good stuff."

I sniff and I smell.... Good, surprisingly enough.

"Here they come" he says. I turn and admire Evie and her stunning everything.

"Hey guys" Viktor says.

"Hey" Alex responds, "you guys ready to eat?"

"It's pizza, do you really have to ask?" Evie replies. I laugh and she glares at me. Ok then...

We go in and I say 'hey' to a couple of guys and sit at a booth. Alex slides in next to me and Viktor and Evie sit across from us. My phone vibrates in my pocket and I pull it out.


I look down and see what he means.I laugh a little and look at Alex, who gives me a knowing smile.

"What's so funny?" Viktor asks.

"Nothing." I'm gonna go order. What do you guys want?"

"I'll have Meat Lover's" Alex tells me.

Viktor says "Cheese and Pepperoni for me."

"I'll have Sweet and Sour Chicken" says Evie. She tries to give me some money but I don't take it.

"It's cool. I'll get yours."

"Thanks Bass."
