Scarlet's POV

I finished work. I went to the toilet of the shop and fixed myself a little bit, but I was looking okay so I soon left the shop and closed. When I turned around I saw Gerard looking at the sky while smoking a cigarette. He looked beautiful. Hot. I walked towards him.

"Gerard" I said

He looked at me and threw the cigarette at the floor then stepped on it.

"Hey" he said with a cold voice tone

He headed me to the car and we both got in. Gerard started driving.

"You smoke?" I asked

He took a mint chewing gum and put it in his mouth. He offered me one.

"No, thanks"

He put the box back in his jacket pocket and kept on driving. We were both quiet.

"Yeah" Gerard said

"What?" I said confused

"I smoke"

"Oh" I said nodding

"Since I was 15" Gerard said

I looked at him.


He nodded. We arrived to starbucks and got out of the car. Then we walked in.

"Huh, what would you like?" Gerard asked

"A mocca is okay" I said

He nodded and waited in the row while I took a table.

Gerard's POV

I took our coffees and sat down next to Scarlet.


I gave her a small smile and looked down at my coffee. There was an akward silence for a couple minutes. I wanted to break it but I didn't know what to say. Thanks God, she started talking.

"So hum, you like this band Nirvana?" she asked

"Yeah they are pretty cool" I nodded still looking at my coffee

"I like it too. They're my favourite band" Scarlet said smiling

I looked at her. I was surprised because of what she just said.

"Are you really into that kind of music?" I asked

"Yeah! I like a lot of bands. Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Ramones... Oh! ACDC too! I also like Queen, Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones..."

She kept on talking and talking and naming tons of bands, but I stopped paying attentiom in the exact moment I lost myself in her beautiful and bright brown eyes. She was very beautiful. I loved her voice very much and the way her lips moved whenever she spoke a single word.

"Gerard. Gerard" she said waving her hand in front of my face

"Yes sorry" I said feeling myself arriving back to earth again

"Was I boring you?" She asked

"No, no!"

Wow great. Well done, Gerard. You screwed things up.

"Yes, I was boring you!" she said with a laugh

"No, really! You weren't!" I said laughing, too

We both ended up laughing. She smiled to me.

"What?" I asked

"Nothing" she said


She laughed and looked down at my coffee, then looked up to me again.

"I would like to know more about you" she said

More? About me? A girl? This was new.

"I am nothing special"

"Will we meet some other day?" she asked

"If you want to"

"I would love to"

I smiled at her and she smiled back at me.

Scarlet's POV

We finished our coffees and left Starbucks. We got into the car again and Gerard started driving. He seemed sad. We arrived to where the shop was and Gerard stopped the car.

"Are you okay?" I asked him

"Yes, why?" he said looking at me

"You look sad"

He shook his head.

"I am always like this" he said with a small smile

"Why?" I asked

I wanted to know why he was always like that. And I knew he was sad.

"Nevermind" he said shaking his head

"Well, we'll have time some other day" I said smiling

He looked at his steering wheel.

"Shall I drive you home?"

"Thank you" I said

He smiled and started the car. I gave him indications untill we arrived to where I lived. It was a flat I rented with my friend Megan. I looked at Gerard. He was sweating.

"You okay?"


He didn't seem okay. I touched his face. It was so warm.

"You've got a temperature" I said

He looked at me and put his hand on mine, which was still touching his face. We stared at each other for a few seconds then I smiled.

"When you get home you should have a good sleep" I said

He nodded and let out a breathed laugh. I opened the door and stepped out of the car.

"Thanks for driving me home"

"No problem" he said laughing

"Will we see some other day? Mabye tomorrow?" I asked

He looked at me without saying anything.


"Okay" he said with a small laugh "See you... Tomorrow?"


I smiled to him and closed the door, and watched as he drove away.
