Questo Amore


2. The "betrayal"

RECAP-  "Do.. you love him?" You were surprised by this question. You hesitate before answering, "I-" Ignazio cuts you off, noticing your hesitation. "I'm sorry, sorry that wasn't something I should have asked." He lifts his gaze to meet yours and you just feel your heart melting. "I should get back to my hotel.." Ignazio stands up and says, "I'll drive you." You nod and you two walk out the door.




The whole car ride was silent and awkward. The car finally arrives in front of the hotel and Ignazio says, "Sleep well and take care." "You too." Just as you were about to get out of the car, you ask Ignazio, "Are you going to stay in Los Angeles too?" "No, I'll be leaving in an hour actually. Like I said, I just wanted to make sure you're okay." He avoids your gaze once again, and you say,  "Okay, well, have a nice flight. See you soon. I-I-hope you get some rest." You were about to say "I love you." You get out of the car and watch as Ignazio drives away. Ignazio was being much more serious than his usual self. Not too many jokes or pranks.

You decide to leave that exact night, so you catch the next flight to Rome. You have to talk to Gianluca as soon as possible. You have to tell him that it's just not going to work out between the two of you. After arriving in Rome, you buy some pizza, and start walking home since it's near the pizzeria. "So much for a vacation," you think to yourself. You live alone because you like to have your space, but you go to see your parents often since they live nearby. When you arrive to your house you notice you have three voice mails. You press play and the first message is from you mom, "Hi, sweetie, just wanted to let you know that I'm making calzones on Sunday. Hope you can make it. Love you." The next voice mail is from your good friend Antonella Romano. "Girl, you haven't returned my texts! Is something wrong? Get back to me as soon as you can!" You can't help but smile. Antonella is the best girlfriend ever. You can't wait until you tell her everything that has happened. The last voice mail is from Ginaluca. "Teresa, I'm sorry for yelling at you. I-I-think we need to talk.. as soon as possible. Please, return my call when you can.." You decide to wait till the morning to return the calls. You fall asleep watching tv.

When you wake up in the morning, you make eggs and toast. After returning the first two calls, you dial Gianluca's number. "Hello?" "Gian, it's me. We need to talk." He stays silent for a moment. "Yes, yes, we do." "Can we meet up somewhere?" "Want me to come over?"  "Uh, yeah, I guess." "Okay, I'll be over there soon." "Okay." As you hang up the phone, you catch a glance of yourself in the mirror. "Damn, I need to shower!" Since Gianluca's house is about 15 minutes away you get in the shower and the you brush your teeth. When you get out of the bathroom, you see Gianluca is sitting on your couch. He was wearing grey sweatpants and an Adidas hoodie. He looks up at you and smiles a half smile. "Teresa.." You give him a hug, and he kisses you on the cheek. You pull away and sit on the couch facing him. "Say what you need to say. "Gianluca looks you right in the eyes. "Gian, this isn't easy to say.. I don't think.. our relationship will workout anymore.." You notice his eyes harden. "Ah, bella, I knew something like this was going to happen." "I'm sorry, Gian. I really am." "No need for apologies. Now, I know why Ignazio went to look for you." "What are you talking about?" "You don't need to hide it anymore. I think I should just leave." He gets up and starts for the door. "Gian, wait, we need to clear things up!" " Just don't talk to me!" He slams the door as he gets in the car and speeds away.

You can't believe what just happened. What did Gianluca mean by that?! Did he think that you cheated on him?! You would never even think about disrespecting him like that. Yes, Your feelings for Iganzio were strong, but you never acted on them. I decided to go talk to Ignzaio about what happened. He was already in Rome since he checked in on Facebook, so you grab your car keys and head to Ignazio's place. 

As you arrive to Ignazio's house, you notice that Gianluca's car is parked right in front of you. You get out of the car and knock on the door. No answer, but you could hear yelling inside. You turn the doorknob and let out a sigh of relief when you opened it. You were careful to not make a noise so you could hear what they were saying.

"I can't believe you would do that to me! We're like brothers, Ignazio!" "HOW MANY TIMES DO I NEED TO TELL YOU THAT NOTHING HAPPENED BETWEEN US! I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO YOU! TERESA IS NOT THAT TYPE OF GIRL!" "DO. NOT. LIE. TO. ME! Why else would she break up with me?" "Maybe if you would have treated her right that wouldn't have happened!" "You're just jealous because she was dating me!" You decide you should leave, but you could barely open the door 'cause you were shaking. You can't believe Gianluca would think this of you. You also realize how much Ignazio actually respects you. The tears start flowing as you walk to your car, you hear "Teresa! Wait!" You turn around and see Ignazio. "You're crying. Did you hear everything?" "Most of it.." "I'm sorry. Please, don't cry." "Ignazio.. I love you." His eyes sparkle and he says, " I've always loved you." Ignazio pulls you into a passionate kiss. His lips on yours tastes so sweet, and you realize what true love actually feels like. All of a sudden you hear, "I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU TWO!" In Gianluca's enraged voice.
