Chapter twelve.

He briefly chuckled before apologizing “You’re a beautiful woman, don’t get me wrong, you’re just not my type” a small smirk played at the corner of Tony’s lips. I looked up from my plate and raised an eyebrow. “Rockstar has a type? Not the usual ‘blonde hair, big tits, and nice ass’?… But an actual TYPE?” I sarcastically gasped. His expression dropped and he furrowed his eyebrows together. “Everyone has a type” He lowly growled. Tony played with his food, shoving a couple small pieces in his mouth. I hummed, loving the feeling of satisfaction I was receiving.

I felt a strong vibration coming from my pocket as I pulled out my phone to look at the text I was just sent. I lost my appetite as I read over the name and bit my lip. My thumb hovered over the “read” button for a moment before I tapped it. “heeeey babe I miss u” Jullien said. A million memories flashed through my mind… Our first date, our first kiss, our anniversaries, the feeling of being in his arms, and the feeling of just being with him. I sucked on my bottom lip to stop myself from crying infront of Tony. “you’re the one who cheated on me for 3 years.” I texted back and tried to blink away the tears that were forming in my eyes. I couldn’t give in, I still loved Jullien. I rubbed my eyes with the back of my hand and started stacking my plates so the waitress could come collect them.

“Are you okay?” Tony spoke after a moment. “Yeah, fine.” I lied. I heard a small sigh escape Tony’s lips as he stacked his plate too and laid money on the table to cover our food. I slowly scooted out of the booth as Tony did too.

“Thanks for breakfast” I tried to flash a small smile before walking towards the door. I hugged myself as I walked to my car out in the parking lot. I took my keys from my pocket and unlocked the doors as I felt someone touch my shoulder. I turned around to be greeted by an expressionless Tony. I leaned my back against my car just as he began to speak. “Do you maybe wanna.. hang out later?” He smiled, rubbing the palms of his hands together. I hesitated for a second, thinking of an excuse I could use but I wasn’t planning on doing anything later. “Yeah” I grinned and looked up at Tony to meet his brown eyes once again. He pulled his phone from his pocket and handed it to me quickly so I could put my number in as a contact. I handed him my phone as he did the same. “I’ll text you” He shouted over his shoulder as he was walking back to his car. I quickly hopped into my vehicle and drove to my house.

I threw my keys on the table by the door as I unlocked my home and shut the door behind me. My sighs echoed in the living room. Maybe I should get a dog or a cat, or maybe some kind of pet? It’s too quiet here all alone. I discarded Tony’s clothes in my room as I stepped into the shower. When I was done showering, I walked over to my closet to pick out an outfit for the day. I decided on wearing ( this. It was a bit too hot outside to wear long sleeves and jeans, but I was planning on staying indoors today anyways. I finished my hair and makeup as I slipped on the ring Jullien got me on our 2nd anniversary and let out a small sigh. I remembered that we were texting earlier so I ran downstairs to check my phone that I had left on the couch. “I love you” Jullien texted back. I shook my head and decided not to reply because I knew exactly where he would end up going with this conversation. I pulled up Tony’s contact and send him a text.

Me: hey, it’s Noah. :)
Tony: Hey :) I like the smiley face you put next to your name in my phone, by the way.
Me: haha, I hoped you would.
Tony: Did you still wanna hang today?
Me: depends on what you wanted to do
Tony: I could get a bottle of jack and we could just kick it at my place
Me: not in the mood for jack, movie night maybe?
Tony: Fine by me :)
Me: cool. what time do you want me to come over?
Tony: Around 6, if you want. What would you like to eat?
Me: pizza sounds amazing, if that’s okay with you :)
Tony: Great. Can’t wait!! :)

I smiled at our text messages and finished getting ready as I walked back upstairs to grab my phone charger. I checked the clock and it was only 5:41 pm. I skipped over to my stereo and turned the volume up as I pressed play and let the current music that was on the radio fill up my silent home. I plugged in my phone as I danced around on the wooden floors of my bedroom. To pass the time I slipped into cleaning mode and started tidying my room up. I threw my dirty clothes down the steps and into the laundry bin at the bottom of the stairs and finally got around to hanging up my posters of Sleeping with Sirens and A Day to Remember. I waltzed over to check my phone and had two unread text messages from Tony.

“Pizza’s here :)” sent at 6:04 pm
“Are we not hanging out tonight? :/” sent at 6:35

I smacked myself on the forehead and ran over to turn off my radio and put on my shoes. I slipped on my nerd glasses and grabbed my phone on my way out of my room as I made my way downstairs. I snatched my keys from the table by the door and pressed the ‘call’ button on Tony’s contact as I started up my car.

“Hey” Tony answered
“Hey. I’m really sorry, I lost track of time while I was cleaning.” I rushed out in hopes he wouldn’t be too mad at me for being late.
“It’s fine, I kinda thought you was standing me up though” He stifled a small laugh.
“Nope” I smiled through the phone. I turned onto the highway as I was on my way to his house.
“Are you still coming though?”
“Yeah, of course. It’s a left on Parsons Road, right?” I asked as I slowed down my speed to make the turn.
“Yeah” He said.
“I’m hereeeeeee!” I sang into the phone and pressed the ‘end call’ button as I pulled into his driveway.

I pulled my mirror down and quickly looked at myself as my smile faded and I sighed. I shook my head and told myself to not let anything bring me down tonight. I flipped my mirror back up and out of my way as I got out of my car and locked it up.

I walked up the three small steps to his front porch and lightly knocked on his front door. A second later Tony opened the door, with a smirk plastered on his face.

“You’re late” He teased. “I’m here though” I hit his right arm. He laughed and let me enter the house as he shut the door behind me. “Pizza’s in the kitchen” Tony grinned. I walked into the kitchen and placed two slices of cheese pizza on a small plate and made my way back into the living room.

“Shit” I mumbled. I fucking forgot the movies. First I’m late and now I didn’t even remember to get the movies, I’m completely out of it today. “What?” Tony looked up at me wide-eyed. “I forgot the movies” I sighed. “I have movies here” He chuckled and gestured towards his case of movies. I smiled apologetically and set my pizza down on the coffee table. I walked over to the movie case and began scanning the labels. Tony came up behind me and said “My favorite ones are at the top, least favorite ones are on the bottom” and laughed to himself. “You pick” I turned to him. Tony looked down at me as he narrowed his eyes. “You pick” He mocked me. I placed a hand on my hip and furrowed my eyebrows, feeling a challenge coming on. Tony placed his hand on his hip to mock me once again. I busted out laughing at Tony’s goofiness. He’s actually really cute. “You pick” I demanded as I walked over to the couch to begin eating my pizza. “I’ve seen them all a thousand times” Tony whined then turned around to look at me. I let a small laugh escape my lips and patted the seat next to me.

“We don’t have to watch movies”
