5 things about Sergio

Five things about Sergio

1.Sia is his first American girlfriend, but most think she’s from some other country.
2.He rarely visits home anymore since his parents have moved to the country to retire.
3.He really would love to have a dog, but their place doesn’t allow pets and he’s pretty sure Sia wouldn’t want to put up with a dog.
4.He loves pizza. Most holidays he opts for pizza instead of any traditional food.
5.He loves all sorts of sports while Sia only likes running.

I like to think of myself at the quiet type. I'm not really confrontational..while Sia..oh..she might blow up about..anything.

Yeah, she has a bit of a temper, but its not bad. She's so nice at work, but she can come home and take it out on me. And she knows this, so she really tries not to be that way.

Still, I got to know her when the Japanese lessons..and it was rather the beginning. Still, I manage to get through these little issues. Cause, after all, I love her and I wouldn't want to be with anyone else.

I'm happy I got to come to the states with her. And to see where she's from and to meet her relatives.

Its really been a lot for my own parents to process. We only visit ever great once in while. I know they want to be accepting, but sometimes, I can see she gets on their nerves. 

No way, is Sia the traditional kind of Japanese girl they were expecting me to bring home. But..I wouldn't want her any other way...

Oh..BTW..its me who who nicknamed her Sia.

p.s..She calls me Sugar from time to time...

Nico & Violet

nico & violet

Violet had to remember it was Ellie who called Nico, not the other way around. And it was about Minho.

As much as Ellie did want to move on with her life with Milo, Violet could see there were loose ends, when it came to Minho.

"What am I suppose to do about it?" She gave Nico the evil eye when he talked about Minho's predicament. No way was she going out with Ellie's ex.

"Maybe..maybe Kenzo..could..could be friends with him." Nico shrugged. Minho and Kenzo were close to the same age. He said he'd invite them both for a free meal.

"You, are so generous." She smirked.

"I know." Nico was indifferent, as usual. Nothing was going to shake up his world.

Violet winced, wondering if she should ask Nico.. if they were going out or not. It felt like it, the night of the fireworks. He'd been so close. Maybe they'd kissed..and.

She shook her head, hard. Oh, she would have remembered that.

"What?" He squinted as if she might really be going insane.

"Nothing." She pressed her lips tight as she went back to setting the dining tables for the night's rush. But the truth was Nico would always be a mystery to her.

A part of her felt they were a step closer to being a couple, yet this might be as close as they'd ever get.

" I don't have to do anything?" She watched him prep veg for the nightly menu when they opened the noodle shop at six.

He shook his head, no. He told her he'd take care of it. She watched him text Kenzo an invite. He then pressed the same message to Minho.

He heard from both of them, instantly. Nico practically smiled.

"It was easier than I thought." He looked to Violet as if it were her turn now to serve up some good waitress-ing skills when they got here.

Violet went to check on the utensils, making sure there were plenty of wide soup spoons. Seriously, she couldn't think of  Kenzo ever having a close friend.

"Do you know, Minho?" Violet looked back at Nico who was chopping up carrots.

"Um, not really. He..he came here before." Nico told her she'd served him.

"Oh." Violet nursed her bottom lip. She served a lot of people, but no one came to mind. She supposed she'd find out who Minho was when he got here.

Milo & Ellie

Milo & Ellie

If it wasn't enough, having a roommate to contend with, it was all the phone calls from Minho.

Naturally, he sent videos trying to prove he was much more romantic than Milo, with videos of their times together. He made it sound as if they traveled and did everything together. Oddly, all she could remember was the laundry and cleaning up. It wasn't nearly as romantic as he remembered.

"What did I do? That was so wrong?" His voice was so mournful. Ellie didn't really know how to respond.

"It's not your fault." She finally said to him during facetime. "Look, you can' can't just stop.." She had listened to him talk about his sick leave from the school. "It will get better, if..if you'll let it."

Milo told her the next day not to answer any of his phone calls. He took her phone and blocked him.

"Don't second guess yourself." He told her. "Don't let him spoil..your life."

"I won't." She knew where she wanted to be, and it wasn't with Minho. Milo was right, but she felt the need to call Nico. Maybe they could check up on Minho.

"I..I guess we could do that." Nico sounded as somber as usual, but he told her Violet moved in with him, due to a family misfortune. "Her brother Kenzo hangs around." Of course, the weather was miserably cold, and they didn't do much of anything, other than run the noodle shop. "I'll let you know."

There were no questions about her sudden move to New York City. Instead, Nico said, "Stay safe and be happy."

"You, do the same." She smiled, wishing she could see Nico and Violet together. A part of her felt sure he was happier than he'd ever let her know.
