How I Met Him

'Just Collegues' or so they say. Follow Alexis' path to realisation that her future career is bumpier than she would've thought because of a possible love interest. What happens when information about the two gets leaked from the wrong side?


29. The picnic

We ate our sandwiches, and we took our time eating our cakes. He told me all about his career build up and we exchanged funny college stories.

We were starting to pack up when my phone rang. It was an unknown number.

"Sorry, do you mind if I take this? It could be work."

"Go ahead." he said, looking at his half eaten sandwich and taking a bite.

"Hello?" I answered the phone in a smart tone... just in case.

"Hi! It's Esme, Esmeralda." she said excitedly.

"Oh! Hi, how are you... hows the wedding?" As I asked this, Arturo looked up.

"Oh it's going good, the usual stress but it'll totally be worth it."

"Cool, so, why did you call me?"

"Well, we are going through the guest list and portions of food and need to know weather you're bringing a plus one."

My heart raced and I looked at Arturo.

"Uh... a plus one?" I asked her again and noticed Arturo raised his eyebrows and was looking at me curiously.

"Yes, like... a partner."

Arturo nodded my way and mouthed 'I'll come'.

"Yeah, I will be bringing a plus one." I said confidently.

"Great. Can't wait to see you there!" she exclaimed excitedly.

The call ended and I smiled at Arturo. He smiled back.
