___

When you were little you were always shy and stuck by yourself. Even through grade school and after your family moved to Dallas, Texas during your Junior year. That year you met someone who understood you and always protected you. He was there when you were getting bullied and when your parents decided that it was best to get a divorce. He was there to help you, hold you, and protect you from all harm. Over the years he had become like an older brother to you or well that was how it was in the beginning.


A couple of years ago you started to feel something more but you never told him. You were scared to tell him especially because he had everything going for him. He was doing what he loved and you definitely didn’t want to stop that or mess it up. Even now you still felt the same after not seeing him for a couple of years and moving away to another state, then to another country. You had moved to Australia for your job, you were a doctor. When you got there you met one of your closest friends, Sarah Fudge soon to be Shepparrd. She had taken you under her wing and showed you how everything was done in Australia. It wasn’t that hard to learn everything and you only had your fast learning abilities to thank for that. Australia was definitely different than America but you couldn’t have been happier, you were in a new place. But when you got the call from Sarah asking if you would come to California to help with last minute wedding details you decided it was time. You couldn’t stay away or run away from America forever and would have to probably face Jensen again. It would be hard if you tried because of Sarah’s fiancé, Mark, who was friends with Jensen.


A couple of days after the call and you had booked a flight you were on your way to spend time with your friend and new little niece. Sarah had sent you pictures and you couldn’t have been more in love with the little girl. But as soon as you were holding her those thoughts changed and you didn’t want to put her down. “So (Y/N) how is Woollahra without me” she asked and I sighed, “Everyone misses you, especially your parents” I told her and she nodded while smiling then we took off from the airport. “So Mark is at a convention this weekend, so if you want we could have a girls weekend while we plan the rest of Mark and I’s wedding” she told me after a while into the driving and you agreed. You loved those kinds of weekends with her because you would stay in and watch an action movie like Suicide Squad or Captain America. We would also drink a wine and sometimes forget the movie and just talk about anything. “You know (Y/N) I don’t understand why you always said you don’t like America, it is pretty nice” she told me and you smiled while thinking about Jensen. “I fell in love with someone and I never told them because I didn’t want to mess up anything that was going for them” you told her and she oh’ed. “Who was it” she asked and you smiled again while shaking your head. “I can’t, you might know him or something” you told her then went to the guest room that she had told you was now yours for whenever you visited. “You can’t just walk away from me with that” she told you while you started to go through your bookbag. You didn’t plan on staying for long so you packed a bookbag and that was it. You had learned to pack light because Sarah and you loved to go on day trips in Australia and you were in charge of packing one bag for the both of you. Those trips were easy to pack for since you both were the same size and wore the same style of clothes.  “Please tell me, I promise I won’t try to go looking for him” she told you while you finally choose something to wear but you stopped to look at her. “We both know that is a lie, you have tried that line before and still went looking” you told her and she sighed knowing that you were right. The only difference from then and now was that she had no idea it was Jensen Ackles one of her friends. When you had told her back when you lived together, you were intoxicated and were telling her wrong things like that his eyes were blue instead of candy apple green.


Once she had finally left the room, you changed into some comfy clothes then headed out to meet Sarah on the couch. She had already put in Suicide Squad, something you haven’t seen yet, and had gotten the wine and her wedding binder out. “So what are the plans” I asked her once you sat down and Isabella was in your lap. “I ordered Chinese, Mark should be picking it up for us and dropping it off” she told me and you froze. “Don’t worry though he has to go back out and won’t be back until after you leave, he just wanted to stop by and see us” she told you and you nodded. “Then once he stops by we will get to planning while the movie plays and I will get all of the dirt on Mr. Loverboy” she said while you sighed but nodded. When she was finished talking there was a knock at the door then someone stepped in who I recognized as Mark, you had seen him over Skype once or twice, and Jensen with someone else who was extremely tall. As soon as you looked at Jensen you booked it out of the room, silently hoping he didn’t see you. Once you got around the corner you slowed down a little bit and noticed you still had Isabella in your arms which made you gulp. “Who was that” you heard Jensen ask and you sighed, he was always curious and needed to know things. At least that was how it was with you, he always wanted to know who you were with or where you were going. He even scared away your prom date and you had to tag along with him and his high school sweetheart. Her name was Danneel and you were really close to her but once she moved back to Lafayette, Louisiana you lost contact with her. “Uh that was my friend from Australia, her name is uh (Y/M/N)” Sarah lied for you. “Don’t you mean (Y/N) honey” Mark asked and you peeped around the corner to see Sarah shaking her head at him with a look you knew very well. It was the shut-up-or-I’m-going-to-punch-you look, but the funny thing is that she never punches anyone. Well, she never punched you. “Didn’t you know a (Y/N) (Y/M/N) once” the tall man asked Jensen and you hid again then looked down at little Isabella who was starting to look a little unhappy. “Shh, Isabella, its okay” you whispered to her but she soon started to cry and you heard someone walking your way. “Jensen stop, I got it” Sarah started to tell him and you sighed but you were soon met with the green eyes that you came to love. “(Y-Y/N)” he stuttered while Sarah soon walked into the hallway where you had been hiding, “Oh” was all she said then walked out with Isabella in her arms since she had taken her from you to calm her down.


“Uh, hey, Jay, how are you” you asked and he laughed a little. “We go from speaking for hours on the phone to you leaving the country as soon as we stop and the first thing you say is hey, how are you” he asked and you nodded. “What else am I supposed to say” you asked and he sighed, “how about an ‘I missed you’” he told you. “I did. Also me leaving the country had nothing to do with you. My boss thought that it was better for me to go to Australia so I did” you told him and he nodded. “I missed you too” he told you after a minute of staring in (Y/E/C) and you smiled at him then pulled him in for a hug. After you pulled away you went into the living room where you and Sarah were once sitting and grabbed your wine then gulped it down. “Hey (Y/N), how are you” Mark asked after you walked over to where they were after you set your glass back down, “I’m fan-freaking-tastic” you told him and they all laughed a little which made you a little confused but you brushed it off after a couple of seconds of thinking. It was probably from the show since they all worked together on Supernatural. “Oh, I’m Jared by the way” the tall man told you and you turned towards him with a smile, “I’m (Y/N), it is nice to meet you” you told him then allowed him to pull you in for a hug which was really warm. It was almost as warm as Jensen’s. After a couple of minutes of talking the boys soon had to leave and you were left with Sarah to finish your girls night. “So I found out who Mr. Loverboy is” she told you playfully and you laughed. “I bet you did” you told her then grabbed a container of Chinese food and went over to the couch. Once you got there you plopped yourself on most of the couch then started to eat while Sarah went to put Isabella down. When she came back she was holding a blanket for the two of you to share and you took it from her so she could get her food. “So I was thinking” she started and you nodded sorta knowing where this was headed. “Yes” you asked hoping it wouldn’t be too crazy. “I was wondering if you wanted to move in here with Mark and I. We would love to have you and I’m sure Isabella would be happy to have her favorite aunt here as well. Also you can get to know Jensen again and maybe-” she went on and you finally cut her off. “I’d have to think about it but I don’t want to be a burden” you told her and she shook her head. “You wouldn’t be, Mark and I love you like your our little sister” she told you and you knew what she meant. You had only met Mark a few times but you had instantly clicked the first time you met so it didn’t matter. “I’ll think about it, I promise” you told her and she nodded.


After that, you both went back to work and soon enough it was nearing three in the morning and your phone had not stop buzzing. “You should really answer that” Sarah told you after your phone signaled that someone was calling you for what felt like the fifteenth time but really could have only been the seventh. “Alright, but after we clean up” you told her and she shook her head. “No, I got it. You go talk to whoever is calling you” she told you and you nodded then left the living room, heading towards the backyard. Once you got out there your phone started to ring and you answered it, “Hello, who is this” you asked. “Hey, best friend” you heard Jensen’s voice tell you and that started the talk.

Buzo Trattoria (1 hat) - 28 July 2011

Upon entering Buzo Trattoria you can easily tell that this is a local favorite in Woollahra. It’s a two story cosy restaurant with the majority of tables upstairs an a few down stairs either side of the kitchen door. We were seated probably at the worst table being right next to the kitchen door and in the path of the entrance. The plus side was that we got to see all the yummy food coming out.

We chose a delicious Sangiovese to start and the rest is history (because we didn’t take notes and can’t remember what we ate, with the exception of the Vincisgrassi, which was an amazing truffled spin on lasagne). It was nice food - that we do remember and it’s definitely a restaurant we recommend to people in the area or looking for top class Italian food.

3/5 stars
