I was on my
way to Spain, to meet with my sister Shakira. The difference between the two of
us was the fact that I grew up in London. My parents moved from Colombia, so I
was not good at speaking Spanish at all, even though my parents talked Spanish
I grew up surrounded by people talking English.
lived with Gerard and they had to kids, so I never had the occasion to spend
more time with the two of them, but since I just graduated, I had 3 months for
myself, what better vacation then going to Barcelona.
I landed in
Barcelona and Gerard came to pick me up after his training, because Shakira was
at a shooting. After all this years I was still impressed how much taller he
was next to me.

said happy that after 5 months I was able to see this part of the family.
the flight?” He asked once we got inside the car.
okay, not long.” I smiled as I looked around the amazing car he had, “are Milan
and Sasha home?”
“I think Milan
is still in kinder garden, but Sasha is home yes.”
to see them!”
Milan, he is already planning to go at the aqua park with you.” Pique laughed.
him we would go together.” I was so happy he remembered that.
When we were
finally at their house I ran inside and threw my bag to go see little Sasha. He
was in the kitchen, since his nanny was making him lunch.
I shout, scared the nanny but made him smile, “you are growing up so fast!”
back miss (y/n)” the nanny suddenly said.
“Oh call me
just (y/n), I’m not famous or anything.” I hugged her and then went back to
Sasha to play with him.
Shakira finally came back home.
She said excited as she noticed me in the living room. She was not alone; she
picked up Milan and walked with him.
said and ran to hug me as I picked him up. However, I was not able to talk a
lot with hi, since my Spanish was bad.
We all sit
at the table, since Shakira and Milan had to eat and we talked for a while.
come meet Messi?” Gerard suddenly asked out of nowhere.
asked shocked as Shakira laughed at me. They both knew I was a big fan of
Messi, I had the occasion to go see a game, but never talked with anyone from the
“We have an
extra training tonight, want to come?”
I do!” I said as happy as ever.
try to stay calm” he laughed.
also be Suarez, Mascherano, Iniesta and the others?” I asked freaking out.
everyone from the team.”
got up and ran to get ready, while they all laughed at me. Shakira kept teasing
me that I must have a crush on someone from the team, because there is no
reason for me to get dressed up to go watch a training.
kind of right, I did like Neymar and Rafinha, but I was 70% sure that Rafinha
was not going to be there, but Neymar will, so to look good was a good
admit it, which one is it?” She asked sitting on my bed, while I was looking
for something to wear.
“No one, I
just don’t want to embarrass Gerard.”
right!” she laughed at my stupid answer.
think this trough. He is probably your age, so we have… Marc, but he is already
a father, we have Sergi Roberto, yet he is taken, there is Rafinha, but I am
sure you know he is not going to be there and then the last one is Neymar. Who
is 100% your type of guy, am I right?”
Ter Stegen and Munir tho.” I said hoping this might distract her from the right
“Yeah, but I
know you are not in to shy guys, plus you always root for Brasil.”
“You are so
“So I was
right! It is Neymar!” She jumped excited.
what?” Gerard suddenly walked inside.
tried to finish but Shakira stopped me.
him; c’mon help her get to him.”
I cannot do that. She is like a sister to me.”
her happy.” Shakira smiled, but I was so embarrassed I wanted to get in my
suitcase and travel back to London.
two stop! I don’t need you to set me up with no one. I just want to meet Messi
and the team. Now let’s go.” I said annoyed and walked to his car, because it
was time to leave.
driving I was quiet, since my stupid sister just told him that I was in to
Neymar and I did not know what to say. He was also a little bit confused, not
knowing how to deal with it.
where we can leave our cars.” He said as we got out. There was so many amazing
cars, from Ferraris to Audis and many others sport cars I would die to have.
“Geri” I suddenly
heard from the back, as this was not embarrassing to me enough it was Neymar
the first one I got to meet.
Gerard said as the two hugged and then looked at me, “this is Shakira’s sister
my hand and quickly hugged me, I guess they get friendly quickly, I could feel
my cheeks getting red.
nice to meet you” he said as I almost forgot how to present myself, “I’m (y/n)”
“Oh, I can
hear an accent there” Neymar laughed and looked at Gerard.
is from England” Gerard joked, imitating and English accent, even though he was
terrible at it.
worry I’m not excellent at Spanish either.” He winked at me, with a smile that
I swear looked like heaven.
of us walked to the wardrobes and I walked looking at my phone, when I suddenly
bumped in to someone around the corner.
said in Spanish, but then looked shocked as I noticed Messi in front of me.
Shirtless. He was not alone, there were
also Bravo, Suarez and Arda.
problem, is she Shakira’s sister?” he asked looking at Gerard smiling, “they
look so much alike. Pleaser to meet you.”
pleasure is all mine!” I said and leaned down, as if he was a king. Well, for
me he was a god.
Messi laughed at he pushed me nicely to look back up at him and Neymar and
“Can I take
a lunch with you?” I asked as I took out my phone, but they started laughing as
if I said the joke of the year.
“I am taken
you know” Messi joked, as I realized what I actually asked him.
“Oh my… I
am so sorry I meant a….”
Gerard helped me out still dying of laughter.
we did take a photo together and he signed me a shirt I had with myself, but I
felt like shit for embarrassing myself like that.
waited outside the changing room, while the others were walking inside and I
decided not to talk with anyone anymore, even though I wanted to take pictures
with everyone from the team.
“So she is
Shakira’s sister?” Mascherano asked as everyone started walking out and noticed
Gerard said still not fully dressed. As I just smiled, since that was the best
thing to do after what happened with Messi.
ask you out you know,” I heard Arda from the changing room and Pique laughing
instead of protecting his poor family member, who was teased by the entire
“I have to
say you are a beautiful young girl, but I am taken you know.” He joked and then
c’mon, stop teasing her. (y/n) stand up for yourself, say something!” Neymar
laughed, and I swear I wanted to punch him in the face. I was good at
understanding, but I was bad at talking and pronunciation.
okay. That is enough leave her alone.” Gerard finally decided to “protect” me,
still laughing though.
half of them were not able to greet people when they came to Spain.” Iniesta
said, the only one who was mature and kind to me.
all walked pass me to go and start training. I was walking behind them all so I
would go sit in the corner somewhere, but I did not realize I was not the last.
Suddenly someone gently bumped in to my shoulder, Neymar. He ran and looked
back at me as he winked, “I was joking before.”
it was cute so I smiled and then showed him my tongue as a joke and he smiled.
So once I got there I said hello to Luis and sit down in the corner as I
promised Gerard I would. It was funny to see all of them playing and messing
Gerard were always provoking each other and laughing, it was nice to see them
so connected, the entire team. However I noticed multiple times that the two of
them looked in my way and laughed or just gossip about me, so I was afraid of
what Gerard might have told him.
When it was
over I once again decided to leave last, also because Luis talked with me a
while, asking me about my studies and future. Then when all of the guys, who
were walking without their shirts on, went inside their changing room I was
just about to pass the door, but Neymar walked out of it.
looking for you.” He said which surprised me.
told me you might like me?” He said proud of himself.
said in panic, not knowing how to defend myself, “Omg I am so pregnant now.”
again as I said that he burst in to a laughter. I was so confused, I did not
know what I said, I thought “embarazada” meant embarrassed, but I guess not.
“Who is the
father?” He asked laughing, not stopping at all.
you are pregnant” he helped me out showing a big belly so I would understand. I
felt so stupid and all I wanted was to go home after this.
I’m bad too. It takes time.” He then said as he saw I was feeling bad about it,
“but hey, I would love to have some lessons together, huh?”
with that.” I said happy to hear that. Maybe it was not a date, but it was
said and kissed my cheek then walked back inside.
I could not
stop smiling as I walked my way to Geri’s car.
you have a date?” He said once we got inside.
he say to you?” I asked excited, but embarrassed.
are cute and then he asked for your number. But hey, you have to tell me if he
tries something without permission okay?! You’re my little sister okay.” He said
as I nodded my head, happy to see that Neymar actually asked for my number.
