Hi! I'm going crazy about a certain football player since July of this year. He is legally my crush but I have to keep it to myself, cause my friend has a big crush on him too. It's a girl rule (just between my football buddies) that we should not have same crushes. So it's our secret now and I had to choose another guy from the club. (yeah, poor guy)
Good thing they don't know that we have a crush on them and like I always do, I'm fine with just cheering for them and looking at them from a distance. I wonder though, if his a reader, will he ever read my story? What could be his opinion about this?
Yeah, this is about me and him. Well, my imaginary world with him. Let's call this guy Kevin and call myself Kristy. Yeah, that should do.
========================================SUNSET OneShot : 5:00 PM
It just so happens that it's the eve of my birthday. Me and my friends, went to a local town mall to get free tickets for a football game.
Me, Gonxh, Winter and Cris were entering the mall when I caught a glimpse of my ex-boyfriend together with his new beau. Gosh, it's been a year, I don't love him but his face infuriates me. I didn't even realize that three of our fave football players were coming from the opposite direction. I was so lost in my thoughts that I started to step back and looked for the nearest exit.
Little did I know that another person noticed my pained expression and he instinctively followed me out.
I found myself crying, tears just kept flowing and stopped at an empty stall in the parking lot. I started to slightly punch the wall, hoping this strong emotion will just go away. When, I heard someone say..
"I think you'll need a handkerchief"
I turned and was surprised to see Kevin, my crush, my secret crush. He was smiling and oh so handsome; while I was a mess and teary-eyed ugly.
"Come on, go ahead and take it. You look like a mess."
Damn, he noticed that. I slowly reached out for his handkerchief. When another set of whispering voices came. Damn again, its my ex and his new girlfriend.
"Hi, can my girl take a picture with you? We just heard your from Ceres Negros FC, though we haven't really been into one of your games yet."
Idiot! Stupid! How can you be fan if you haven't watched their games? GAWD! She just likes Kevin cause his so handsome. I won't be surprised if she doesn't know his player number. Kevin however, did the most unexpected thing I'd never imagined.
"Sorry, me and", he looked at me getting a cue.
"Kristy", I replied automatically.
"Sorry, but me and Kristy are in a hurry. We have to catch something by 5:00 PM. Maybe next time, after our game", Kevin said smoothly and he suddenly grabbed my hand and walked towards his car.
Yeah, I'm assuming the white Toyota Vios is his car. Why a Vios though? He could have bought something more grand? Well, going back, with my current train of thoughts I let him drag me and as he politely opened the front door, I started to panic.
"Excuse me, why would I go with you? I don't talk to strangers". Gosh, Kristy his your #1
secret crush how can you refuse? My rational self however, did not agree to it because you know, he might be doing something bad.
He smirked and rolled his eyes as he trapped me between himself and his car, "Look, I don't want trouble so you better cooperate, I'm guessing that guy's a bastard and your a damsel in distress. I'll just drive you away from here. Okay?"
His eyes, were like piercing to my inner soul and my legs became wobbly. Why is he so pretty and why is he helping me? Why does he smell like fresh mint? With a hundred questions inside my head and feeling confused I was surprised that without a single word, I sat and buckled up the seat belt. As soon as we're out of the mall parking, he started to ask.
"So, don't I get a thank you?"
"Really, no words of gratitude at all"
"Why did you do that?"
"Do what? Save you from that guy? Who is he anyway?"
"My ex", I simply replied.
"And the girl is his new chick", I added quickly.
"I figured that out."
"Thanks for dragging me out there, I feel much better now", I started to say and yet my heart starts skipping a beat. I felt so giddy and yet I have this instinct to just act normal.
"You're welcome, so what's your story?, he asked.
"You don't want to hear it out. It's stupid and boring"
He laughed and oh, that smile - its so infectious, I started to laugh too.
"Hey Kristy, I hope you don't mind but there's this place I'd like to visit now. Will you accompany me?"
Is this a date? Is he asking me out for an instant date? I was blushing but I don't want to be obvious so I sighed, "If I say no, will you let me out?"
"Actually, no, I don't want to go there alone"
"Then you could've asked your team mates.", I replied annoyingly.
"Well, your most convenient at that time and besides they were busy looking for new stuff at the mall. I don't think they'll say yes"
I did not reply to that, I was again lost in my train of thoughts. How was my ex? He seems happy. GAWD. Why do I keep recalling that.
"Are you alright?" he started to ask.
"Yeah, I think I'm okay."
I did not realize that we have actually arrived on whatever this place is. We drove into a backyard, as an old couple approached him. His Family?
"Good afternoon Mrs. Locsin! I'd just like to watch the 5:00 PM view"
"Sure iho", Mrs. Locsin smiled. "and who is this young lady?"
"Kristy. Mrs. Locsin this is Mr. & Mrs. Locsin, they own this place.", he introduced.
I bowed my head, like I usually do and Mrs. Locsin embraced me.
"A friend of Kevin is always welcome in here, come in, go ahead the two of you. I'll fish out some snacks", Mrs. Locsin as she loosened her hug.
"Thank you and no need for snacks...", but Kevin interrupted, "Apple juice would be great and pimiento sandwich too"
He then tipped his head to the right, motioning me to follow. So I did and had my jaw drop by an amazing view. Sunset. 5:00 PM, I confirmed as I checked my watch.
I saw Kevin sat down on the beach and I did same beside him.
"Are you sure your alright?", he started.
"Yeah, I told you earlier."
"This place, I found it during one of our road trips. I started looking for a drink when I found Mrs. Locsin picking up a heavy bag. I got left behind and helped her. It was her who showed me this place. I'd usually go here when I feel down or upset, or just tired after a game."
"Does your team mates know about this place?", I kind of shifted the subject.
"So you know I'm from a football club"
"Yeah, I do. I haven't missed a single game since the start of season"
"Then, why don't you scream like a giddy fangirl when I handed you the handkerchief?", he mischievously asked.
"Honestly, do you really think that your really that good looking?" ... honestly he is, but I'd like to keep that to myself and act normal, I wonder if he can see me blush.
"Yeah, I still hear girls screaming my name in my dreams"
"Nightmare! Hahaha.. I'm so glad I'm just a normal girl and can sleep peacefully"
"Yeah, wish I had that kind of sleep"
"You're actually one of my favorite players" I truthfully said. "Along with Bienve, Kawase, Schrock, Manny and Roland.. actually everyone in your team"
He looked at me with those brown eyes and smiled. "What's your story? I think you owe me that one."
I grazed into his looks and looked away. "My ex left me on the eve of my birthday"
"I was right, his a bastard", he angrily replied.
So I continued, "He told me that he never knew me anymore, that I'm always busy, striving to have the best career and does not want to be a hindrance to my dreams. He thinks that I deserve someone better. Someone who could support me in everything I do and all that shit. When I asked him if he likes someone else, and that I won't get mad if he admitted it, he simply said no and he might not have a girlfriend over the next months. Take note of the quote & unquote, month"
"Yeah, go on"
"I loved him then and assumed maybe he just wants space, besides its true I've never had proper time for him. I had this promotion at work and executive meetings put me into a lot of hell week. I trusted him you see, I was so naive in believing that"
"Then, just a few weeks after our breakup, saw his post on Facebook, where he was blundering that he finally found his perfect match"
"Bastard", Kevin repeated.
"So, I made a decision, I'll forget him and I know I've moved on but seeing him today, just brought back that pain. I know that I've gotten over it but I don't understand why..."
Then Kevin said, "That's because you were facing the truth".
I looked at him and with a smile, I nodded and we spent the afternoon looking into the beautiful sunset.
