_Episode 10_

Gianna’s P. O. V

 

“He just ignored you? Didn’t even say anything after?” she gasped.

 

I nodded and took a sip of the cocktail in front of me. After the awkward happenings at the Moritello house, I came straight home and told Celine all about it. She instantly suggested we make some drinks and that’s what we were doing at the moment.

 

“Are you okay?” she asked attentively.

 

I sighed and placed the drink down, staring at the chipped silver nail polish on my finger nails. “I guess so, I didn’t expect him to welcome the situation openly. Also, his wife was right there.” She smiled softly.

 

“Doesn’t make it hurt any less.” I shrugged and looked away from her sympathetic smile. I wasn’t at all heartbroken, but it stung. I didn’t want to admit how smitten I had become over Alex in just a short period of time.

 

I blamed it on how long it has been since I’ve enjoyed any sΒ£xual experience. That was definitely the only logical reason as to why I was acting so deprived.

 

Celine stood up and dusted the back of her skirt. I looked up at her in question and she spoke, “Come on, no more moping around, and let’s go out.”

 

“Where?” I asked skeptically, wanting to stay in my apartment all day and lounge around.

 

“We’ll have a girl’s day, it’s been way too long. Also, don’t think I don’t notice how messy your nails look.”

 

I groaned at her and she winked at me, walking off to freshen up, probably. Soon after, I followed suit, touching up my make-up.

 

The sound of my best friend’s heels echoed across the room and she picked up her purse and keys.

 

“Ready to go?”

“Which colour should I go with? Pink or white?” she asked, placing a hand on her hip in thought.

 

We were currently sitting in one of the most well-known Spa’s in our area. Deciding on what nail polish to choose, out of the vast variety of shades.

 

I looked up in the direction of all the fake nails and pondered on which colour would suit her better.

 

“Definitely go with the nude pink- it’ll match with your skin tone more.”

 

She snapped her fingers and looked at me in thanks. “Total lifesaver, I would have been here forever. What are you choosing?”

 

I adjusted the cucumber slice over my eyes once more and sighed in content at the relaxing feeling of my feet sitting in a tub of warm water.

 

“Rose gold.” She hummed in agreement and I felt her sit next to me and heard the water splash from her feet matching the place where mine were.

 

Celine was right. This was definitely needed.

 

I always took for granted how special and enjoyable hanging out with your best friend is. My friendship with her was one of the most important things in my life and I couldn’t see myself living without her. We had a pact that promised us to always be friends no matter what tried to come between us, we’ve stuck to that for the most part.

“Don’t you feel much better now?” she asked, breaking my train of thought. “Now that you’ve gotten Mr. ‘Sexy Jerk face’ out of your head.”

 

I replied, “Well now that you’ve mentioned him, he’s right back in my mind.”

 

I had successfully forgotten all about Alex and our awkward encounter. I couldn’t help but wonder what was going through his head at this moment. Was he thinking about me? Was he getting his nails done and bitching about me to his best friend?

 

Probably not, but the thoughts still lingered.

 

She sighed and reached across from her massage chair, gripping my hand slightly. “Sorry, you know me, I don’t think before I speak.” I laughed at that and shrugged my shoulders, thinking of something to say but couldn’t find the right words. Settling us into a comfortable silence.

 

 

 

 

 

I pulled the strap of my purse, over my shoulder and walked out of the Spa, smiling over at Celine.

 

“That was so relaxing, I feel like all my chakras are finally aligned.” I erupted into a fit of laughter and nodded my head in agreement.

 

We were just about to head over to Leo’s Pizzeria and pick up something to eat, starving from not having lunch prior to leaving our apartment.

 

The bell at the top of the door chimed as we entered, allowing everyone to be notified of the new presence in the aromatic restaurant.

 

My eyes roamed over the surrounding, slowly taking note of all the customer’s faces, when suddenly, in my peripheral vision, I recognized a mop of blonde hair, eating alone at one of the tables. Before I could act upon it, I felt a tug on my elbow and looked over at Celine in question.

 

“Isn’t that the snarky Moritello bitch who gave you the stink eye over her husband?” she whispered, even though Sarah was far enough for her not to be able to hear us. She hasn’t even noticed us yet.

 

I nodded my head and turned to look back at the older woman, freezing in my place when her eyes caught mine. She scraped her chair against the floor and walked towards us. My hands slightly trembled in nervousness at the idea of her causing a scene.

 

Sarah cleared her throat and looked at me for a mere second before shifting towards Celine and extending her hand forward. “Hi, I’m Sarah, the mother of the children Gianna looks after.” Celine slowly shook hands with her and immediately let go.

 

 

 

“I’ve heard all about you Mrs. Moritello.” She answered with a snappy undertone, smiling slightly.

 

The tension in the room was as thick as possible.

 

 

 

 

Sarah cleared her throat and looked at me for a mere second before shifting

towards Celine and extending her hand forward. “Hi, I’m Sarah, the mother of the

children Gianna looks after.” Celine slowiy shook hands with her and immediately

let go.

“Ive heard all about you Mrs. Moritello.” She answered with a snappy undertone,

smiling slightly.

The tension in the room was as thick as possible.

“Gianna.” She started anxiously. “I came over here to apologize to you for my rude

behavior early today. I had talken out all my frustration on you and I It was highly

unprofessional. I hope you can forgive me for it.”

I didn’t really have a choice. I thought, not wanting to come off as rude.

The way she acted towards me was unjustifiable and I had no intention of taking

her apology, so I settled for nodding lightly and smiling at the woman.

“I’d like to make it up to you. Would you consider coming to house tomorrow, for

dinner? No babysitting involved.”

I considered the idea for a bit and ended up agreeing to her invitation. Not wanting

to pass up the free food.

She smiled gratefuly. “Awesome. I’l see you tomorrow at three.”

She gazedat Celine who stood there somewhat surprised, and waved, before doing

the same to me and turning around, heading back to her food

I stared at her retreating figure dumbfounded.

What have I just gotten myself into?

I hopey’all enjoyed this chapter. I feel like Celine and Gianna should have a

girl’s day every once in a while, just so you have a look at other things in her

Hope it wasn’t too boring.
