FIRST LOVE PART FOUR:
“What’s going on guys?” Sebastian asked.
“(Y/n) and I was just about to go and get some sushi.” Chris answered oblivious to the awkward vibes coming from you. You had been so close to not running into Sebastian.
Sebastian seemed a little surprised and looked back over at you, “Oh really?”
You nodded not knowing what else to say. You couldn’t even form words.
“Yeah, there’s a nice place down the street we were going to go and try.” Chris said.
Sebastian had this look on his face that you knew quite well. When you guys were young, you often knew what he was feeling since you could read him like a book. He often hated how you could tell when he was upset or annoyed so easily.
Now, you could tell that he was upset.
“Well, have fun you two. Maybe I will see you guys later?” Sebastian questioned.
“Yeah maybe.” Chris spoke before the two of you walked into the elevator. Sebastian had walked off and you felt a little relieved.
“Are you going to tell me why that seemed so awkward?” Chris chuckled as the doors closed.
“It’s a long story.”
“I’ve got plenty of time.”
“So he didn’t tell you that he was seeing someone?”
You shook your head as you looked down at your plate, “Nope. He gave me all of the signs that he was probably interested and then when you told me he had a girlfriend, I was completely shocked.”
“I’m sorry for being the bearer of bad news.” Chris reached over and grabbed another piece of sushi.
It didn’t take long for you to open up to him once the both of you reached the restaurant. He was just such an easy person to talk to. He didn’t interrupt, didn’t give you judging looks. Chris listened until you were done before asking any questions or giving any advice.
“It’s not your fault,” you mumbled, “I shouldn’t have been so stupid to think that after all of this time, he would still be interested. We were young but…. seeing him again, it just..”
“It was like how it was all those years ago.” Chris finished for you.
You nodded and rested your arms on the table, “Yeah. Maybe I should just get over it. It’s probably smart if I move on. He clearly has.”
“I see the way he looks at you, (Y/n). There’s something there.”
“It’s doesn’t matter. I’m not the kind of girl that gets in between someone’s relationship. I hate that I feel this way but there isn’t anything that I can do. I just have to try and avoid any possible conversations with him or something.” You knew that it was easier said than done and so did Chris.
“I don’t think that’s possible. We are going to be seeing each other everyday for the next few months. It’s going to be long hours and close quarters. You can’t avoid him.”
You sighed, “I know. It’s hard being around him and having to hide how I feel.”
Chris looked at something behind you, “Well, you might want to start figuring out how you are going to be around him.”
You sat up a little, “Why?”
It was like every nerve in your body froze. Goosebumps formed on your arms.
Sebastian spotted you and Chris at a table near the back. He made his way over and thought that the two of you seemed pretty cozy.
“Hey guys.” He said once he walked over to the table.
You looked up at him and saw that he seemed to be in a better mood.
“Hey Sebastian.” You said trying to act like you were completely okay.
“After you guys left, I realized I was in the mood to get some sushi. Figured I would join you guys if that’s okay.”
Chris glanced at you, “Yeah, it’s fine.” Sebastian slid into the side of the booth that you were on. You wished that the waitress had given you guys a regular table.
You moved your plate over and yourself to make some space between you and Sebastian. Chris noticed how uneasy that you were.
“So, what were you guys chatting about?” Sebastian asked.
“Just about the next couple of days. Busy schedule and all.”
“Yeah, it’s been so crazy that I’ve hardly had time to catch up with (Y/n).” Sebastian looked over at you. You tried to give a convincing smile.
“Are you scheduled for the promo shoots tomorrow?” Chris asked Sebastian. The majority of the cast were going to be together that following day for the promos. It was the time that they did the photo shoots that would end up on billboards, cereal boxes, and the movie posters.
You had been extremely excited to be able to put on your costume for the first time. Once you were shown the sketches of it, it hit you that you were playing a superhero. You had been more excited than ever.
“Yeah, I am,” Sebastian answered and looked over at you, “Are you?”
You nodded, “Yeah, I’ll be there.”
“Great, maybe we could get some breakfast before. Finally get to catch up like we wanted to.” He smiled a little. Sebastian felt like you were avoiding him. He could feel it after you blew him off earlier.
“Well, actually Chris and I were going to workout tomorrow morning before heading to the studios.” You lied looking over at Chris hoping that he would go along with it.
Sebastian’s eyebrows furrowed a little and looked at Chris, “I thought you told me earlier you had to be on set at six?”
“Oh yeah, I do. I forgot to tell you that (Y/n), I can’t make our workout tomorrow morning.” You could tell that Chris was sorry that he somewhat got caught in the lie.
“It’s okay. I’ll just go alone.” You grabbed your fork and ate more sushi before any more lies would blurt out.
“I can go with you. I think we have to be at the studio around the same time so it all works out.” Sebastian offered. He wondered if you would turn him down twice in one day.
“Uh,” you looked at Chris and remembered what he said about trying to make it all work, “Yeah that would be great.”
Sebastian was surprised that you agreed. He figured that when you guys were alone, it would be the perfect time to try and talk to you. He wanted to know why you seemed a little off around him.
“Seven o'clock good with you?”
You nodded, “Yeah, that sounds good. Could you scoot out for a second? I need to go to the ladies room.”
Sebastian got out of the booth and so did you. You walked away from the table and to the bathroom to have a minute to yourself. You didn’t want to be around him and now you were making plans with him.
Chris watched as you walked away from the table. An idea struck him as Sebastian sat back down.
“So, how is it working with your old girlfriend?” Chris asked him. He wanted to gage Sebastian’s reaction.
Sebastian thought about it for a second, “I’m really glad that she’s around. I haven’t seen her in so long and when I heard that she would be in the movie…..I got excited.”
“Why haven’t you guys connected in the past?”
“I don’t know. I guess I was upset with how I left when I was younger. I promised her that I would keep in touch with her but I didn’t. I took it up as my responsibly because I was the one leaving.”
“I don’t think she resents you for it. She seems fine.”
“Does she?” Sebastian questioned, “To me it seems like she’s upset with me about something.”
“Can you think of anything that you could’ve done to her?” Chris wanted to say exactly why you were upset with him but it wasn’t his place.
Sebastian shook his head, “No, I can’t.”
Chris decided to turn it up a notch, “She’s not seeing anyone right?”
Sebastian froze. Was Chris interested in you? “Uh, no she’s not. Why? Are you planning on asking her out or something?”
Chris shrugged his shoulders, “I don’t know yet. I wouldn’t if you weren’t okay with it.” Chris had no intention of asking you out. He just wanted to see what Sebastian would say.
You started walking back to the table and saw Chris and Sebastian talking. After a moment to catch your breath and collect your thoughts, you felt okay to sit at the table and finish dinner.
“Okay, you guys can stop gossiping. I’m back.” You said as you stood at the table. Chris got up and gestured for you to sit at his side of the table.
Sebastian looked at you and watched as you sat down and then Chris followed. He noticed how Chris sat closer to you than he previously had when you were by him on the other side. He noticed that you seemed to be happier when you were next to Chris.
He didn’t like it one bit.
It took you three times to hit the snooze button on your alarm before you actually got out of bed. You felt nervous to see Sebastian at the gym. You had to think of anything and everything else to try and distract yourself as you got ready.
You dressed in shorts and a tank top with sneakers before grabbing your gym bag and leaving your hotel room.
Sebastian was there waiting for you in the gym.
“Good morning.” He smiled when he saw you walk in. There was a few other people there in the gym but it was huge so it felt like you and Sebastian were alone.
“Hey, good morning.” You said back.
You set your bag near Sebastian’s and started to stretch.
“Did you have fun last night?” He asked as he stretched too.
“Yeah I did. Did you?”
He nodded, “I always have had fun when I’ve been around you.”
You looked away from him to hide the blush that crept up on your cheeks. You used to love when he said cute stuff like that, now it just made you feel more upset.
The two of you lapsed into a comfortable silence as you both did your respective workouts. You used the elliptical while he did some weights.
The both of you would sneak glances to the other while the other wasn’t looking.
Sebastian working out was very distracting. His muscles bulging out. The sounds he would make. It was giving you inappropriate thoughts.
You looked away and focused on what you were doing.
Once you were done with the elliptical, you wanted to get a few minutes in at the punching bag.
Sebastian noticed you walking over to it and followed you, “Need some help?”
Sebastian wrapped the tape around your hands. You tried to ignore the stirring feelings you got by him touching you. Sebastian felt it too.
He helped you out your gloves on and held the bag while you started punching.
“Got quite the punch there. I would hate to be on the opposite side of it.” Sebastian smiled.
“I’m sure you would.”
It was silent for a few moments as you jabbed left and right. You could feel your arms burning from the impact but you continued through.
“So, want to tell me why you’ve been avoiding me?” Sebastian asked out of the blue.
You stopped what you were doing, “I’m not avoiding you.”
He chuckled, “Not right now but you have been. Did I do something wrong?”
“No, you haven’t. I’m not avoiding you, Sebastian.” It seemed like you were getting better and better at lying.
“(Y/n), I can tell that you’re lying. You can’t even look me in my eyes.”
You ignored him and started punching the bag again.
“Is it because something is sort of happening between you and Chris?” Sebastian hated the words that were coming out of his mouth.
“No, I’m not avoiding you.” You repeated.
“So something is happening between you and Chris.”
You were getting more aggravated so your punching became more frequent. You put all of your energy into it.
“Nothing is going on with me and Chris.” You answered curtly.
“Seems like it is.” Sebastian mumbled.
You stopped, “And if it is?”
Sebastian let go of the bag, “What?”
“If something was going on between me and Chris, why would it bother you? We haven’t dated in years.”
“It does bother me, (Y/n)!”
The other people in the gym were leaving, probably annoyed with the conversation going on between you and Sebastian just like you were.
“Why?! You’ve got a girlfriend!” You shouted. Sebastian froze, “How did you–”
“Does it matter how I found out?” You cut him off, “Just know that I do and I hate the fact that I allowed myself to start having these feelings for you all over again! I know it’s been years since we’ve laid eyes on each other but looking at you…. it takes me back.”
You took off the gloves and threw them to the ground. Hurrying and grabbing your bag, you walked out of the gym, Sebastian calling after you the whole time.
