The Guy Who Gave Up His Jersey(13)

Alejandro Point of View:

I watched as Juliana sat down at the table by herself, she kept her eyes glued to the couples that were dancing. Her brown eyes shining brightly as a young couple giggled and smiled at one another.

She always gets lost daydreaming when she sees couples together; it makes me think as if she never actually like/loved someone. Then again she is Juliana Richerman and she doesn’t date anyone, but I guess that’s what drives me crazy about her.

At first when I messed with her; I did it because she would get extremely mad at me. Then all of a sudden all I could think about was her, and the way she says my name when she is annoyed, and how every time I annoy her lip twitches in this weird way, it drives me insane.

Sadly all she sees in me is a manwhore; which all this time I been trying to convince myself I wasn’t, but I was. I loved having girls fall on their knees for me; I loved the feeling of dominating girls and using them. But that wasn’t the real me, at least I don’t think it was. Now the only girl I want is Juliana and although she keeps being a major drama queen, I want her like that.

She shifted on her sit as she came back to reality; she tapped her fingers on the table as if she was waiting for the wedding to be over. I looked at the DJ and nodded; I had asked him to play a slow song. I wanted to ask Juliana to dance but I didn’t know how.

I walked up to her, smiling kindly down at her. “Do you want to dance with me?” I asked her, extending my hand out to her.

She looked at it before looking up at me. “I was hoping you would ask.” She said, putting her small hand into mine.

I led her to the dance floor; I put my hand around her waist while she wrapped her hands around my neck. We moved to the music together as if we had done it a millions of times. I couldn’t help but to see how beautiful she looked, even after the surgery she managed to look amazing.

“Have I told you that you look beautiful?” I told her looking at her dead in the eyes.

“No but you don’t have to compliment me.” She quickly responded, looking away from me.

I hate and I love when she does that. When she doesn’t believe what I tell her; everything I say to her I mean it. She did look beautiful, stunning actually; any guy would be lucky enough to have her.

I chuckled, quietly.  “I know but I do it because you really do look beautiful, you are beautiful.” I whispered in her ear.

She looked away from me, trying to hide her embarrassment as much as she could. She took me by surprise when she leaned in, placing her head on my shoulder. I sighed, getting lost in the music.

I wondered if she could feel how fast my heart was beating, or how my hands were shaking as I tried my best not to touch her waist completely. I had gotten lost into trying to focus myself not to trip that I didn’t realize they had change the music.

I glanced down at Juliana and she had her eyes closed. I stopped dancing telling her the music had stopped.

“Sorry I didn’t even realize they changed it.” She said, hiding her face in her hands.

“Don’t worry about it!” I responded.

 I hadn’t realized it either.

For the rest of the night we stayed at the table drinking and laughing. At some point I realized Arianna was having way too much to drink. She could handle her alcohol but she could get crazy sometimes.

I had known her since we were little kids after her dad died, her mom moved to New Mexico. She stayed there until now, her mom and her moved back and ever since then we been hanging out. I can tell Juliana doesn’t like it much but she keeps pushing me away, when I wish she wouldn’t.

Arianna held on to her stomach groaning. “I think it’s time for me to go to bed.” She said, grabbing her stuff and walking back into the house.

I knew she would be fine without me, but either way I felt worried. I tried to ignore the feeling by playing shots with Xavier; that kept me entertain for a while until I knew I should go check on her.

I stood up from my seat. “I’m pretty tired too. I think it’s time to hit the hay for me goodnight.” I said, yawning.

Juliana looked up at me frowning. “Goodnight.” She muttered, drinking down the shot in her hand.

She wasn’t happy I was leaving; it was written all over her face, but if I told her I was worried about Arianna she would blow up again. I walked inside the house to my room; Arianna laid on the side of the bed groaning.

“Ugh, my tummy hurts.” She slurred her words.

“Of course your stomach hurts you had a lot of alcohol!” I scolded her.

I sat her up and gave her a few seconds to breathe. I was used to taking care of drunk people, I was always the “mothergoose” how Xavier says. When the boys and I go out to party, I always am the ome who has to deal with them.

“Ale I don’t feel so good.” She said, standing up.

Arianna gagged and before I had a chance to take her to the restroom, she threw up on my shirt. I stayed still trying not to get mad, I grabbed her and took her to the restroom.

“I-I’m sorry Ale.” She muttered, ducking her head inside the toilet.

“Ugh. It’s okay. Come on you need to shower,” I told her, turning on the shower.

I picked her up and stripped her down to her underwear and bra.

“I’m going to step outside and you take the rest off okay,” I spoke to her slowly.

She nodded. “Okay.”

I closed the door behind me taking off my shirt and pants, grabbing the shorts I had left on the floor I put them back on. I tried looking for a shirt but I couldn’t find one.

“Ale! I’m done!” Arianna screamed out.

“I’m coming hold on!” I shouted back at her, throwing clothes around the floor.

“Shit. Where is my damn shirt!” I muttered, dropping Arianna’s clothes on the floor.

I walked back into the restroom and Arianna was sitting down on the counter. She had hiccups cause everytime she tried breathing a little laugh escaped her mouth.

“You took a fast shower.” I teased her.

She giggled. “I felt like I was going to faint,” She said, tiredly.

“Well that’s what happens when you drink!” I spat, hitting her on her thighs.

She rolled her eyes. “I have you to take care of me though.” She whispered, grabbing hold of my hands.

I smiled. “Of course you do,”

“And I have you to make me happy when I’m sad.” She responded.

“Duh I don’t want to see you sad,” I told her, truthfully.

She stayed quiet for a moment. “Alejandro…I like you. I like you a lot and I know im drunk but it’s the truth.” She blurted out.

I stared at her, stunned. Was she being serious with me? I never thought she liked me that way. I sure didn’t like her that way though; it was more like sister love. I tried to think of a way to let her down easily but before I could respond she grabbed my face, and kissed me.

I put my hands on her shoulder trying to push her away but she had wrapped her legs around my waist, pulling me into her. This felt wrong, she shouldn’t have done that.

“I-I” I pushed Arianna away from me in time to see Juliana run out the restroom.


Arianna looked at me surprised. “Ops I didn’t mean to do that.” She responded, gagging again.

“We will talk later!” I told her, running after Juliana.

Finally when Juliana and I were okay with one another this happens? For once I just wanted things to go out the way I wanted; I wanted to have Julie in my arms without having someone take her away from me. I wanted to go one day without fighting and getting mad at one another.

“Julie open the door!” I screamed banging on the door.

“I’m tired! I need to sleep,” I heard her say.

Bullshit. Why did she have to act like this, if she only opened the door and let me explain what happen then she wouldn’t have to hide herself.

“Don’t do this to me Julie! Just open the door!” I pleaded to her.

“Its okay! I understand she is girlfriend!” Her voice shook.

I wouldn’t let it end like this; I grabbed onto the knob and jiggled it until I loosen it. I rushed towards her; as she sat at the edge of her bed.

“Let me explain-“

“You don’t need to I understand,” She whispered. “She’s your girlfriend, I just don’t want to be mad at-“

I got on top of her pinning her down underneath me. She had finally made me lose my sanity. Arianna wasn’t my girlfriend and she would never be it. Juliana needed to stop thinking I’m the guy she got used to seeing.

“I’m tired of you thinking she is my girlfriend! I’m tired of us fighting, I fucking like you. And if I don’t kiss you right now I’m going to go crazy!” I blurted out, leaning down closing the gap between us.

Our lips were about to touch when she pushes me off of her. She stand up trying to run out the door, but I get up slamming it before she reached it. Her cheeks were flushed and her breathing was heavy.

“Get out of my way!” She yells at me, angrily.

“Why!” I shouted back, standing in front of her.

“Because you don’t come into my room telling me you fucking like me when you were just sucking the face out of Arianna!” She exclaimed, throwing her hands in the air.

“For once Juliana stop making your head think for you and let your heart speak.” I told her, looking at her dead in the eyes.

She laughed dryly. “If I let my heart speak for me right now I would be like those idiotic girls!”

I walked up to her wrapping my arm around her waist, slamming her into the wall. If she though this time I would let her walk away from me, she was wrong. I would prove to her that I actually meant that I liked her.

“But you’re not an idiot, your smart, and sweet, sometimes you’re a pain in the ass but that fades away. No one is trying to prove to you that you are an idiot.” I told her.

She looked away from me sighing. “Just leave. I don’t feel like arguing with you.” She muttered, pushing me away from her.

I stared at the ground trying my best to keep my cool. How could I keep trying to prove to her I actually did like her? I wasn’t trying to play her or anything. All I wanted was to have her in my arms. I never wanted a girl so badly until I fell for Juliana.

She gazed at me sighing. “Can you leave?” She asked me.

I shook my head, “No not until you realize that I’m being serious.”

“Fine. Stay here I’m going to take a shower,” She snarled, walking inside the restroom.

Leaning against the wall I slide down. Trying to make Juliana see that I am not the manwhore she assumes I am, is frustrating. I never had the patience to deal with girls, but for her I was willing to do whatever. Even if it meant giving up what mattered the most to me.

At first I thought giving up my jersey would prove to her that I was being serious, but instead she went off on me. Then I do the stupidest thing to have sex with the girl at the bridal shop, which I forgot her name. To top it off I called her a bitch.

Now thinking about it; I never gave her good reasons to see that I was being honest with her, because in fact I was doing nothing but the opposite. For four years sleeping and playing girls was all I did, it was something I got used too. Have someone you never expected to fall for change all of that for you, you’ll understand why it’s hard for me.

If it had been someone else I liked I wouldn’t have given up my ways, my jacket. I would’ve probably dated them until the feelings vanished, then continue doing what I was doing. But Juliana she changed all of that for me; she made me see that I could still fall for a girl. And not just any girl, a girl who was the complete exact opposite as me.

She stepped out of the restroom giving me a stare, she had put on black shorts and a purple tank top, her hair was still wet by the trails of drops she was leaving behind.

“So are you going to realize that I am being serious?” I asked her, following my gaze as she moved around her room.

“No. You can’t like me. You kiss a girl one minute and the next your exposing your true feelings to me?” She said, stupidly. “You sure know how to play around with girls.”

I rolled my eyes. “You know that stupid playbook of yours doesn’t know everything about me. You know what you see. You can’t know what I feel.” I responded, standing up.

“You’re Alejandro Rodriquez and you’re-“

I grabbed on to her wrist slamming her into me. “And I’m the guy who has fallen head over heels for you.” I said, slamming my lips onto hers.
