"Hey Bill, it's Gigi."
"Hey Gigi, I'm really sorry but Alex never gave me your number."
"Oh, it's fine."
"So, I was wondering if you wanted to go out with me tonight?"
"Oh, yeah, I'd love to."
"Pick you up at eight?"
"Bill, you are a great guy." Gigi said tearing off a piece of her bread and dipping it in her soup.
"Well, you are a great girl. I've never met anyone like you." Bill charmingly smiled at Gigi making her cheeks turn a deep shade of red.
"So, I thought you and Alex were, you know, an item."
"No, no. Definitely not." Gigi tried to change the subject, which worked, and started talking to Bill about his life.
"Wow, you had an interesting childhood." Gigi said laughing. Bill started laughing too, but stopped.
"What is he doing here?" Bill said looking towards the door. Gigi looked behind her to see Alex walking through the door, looking around until he saw her. He started walking her way so she quickly looked away and covered her face.
"I don't know." Gigi whispered.
"Gigi we need to talk." Alex said standing beside Gigi's chair.
"Oh really, and what do you need to possibly say?"
"I was wrong. I don't know what I was thinking, or doing, and I'm sorry."
"Well you should have thought about that before. Alex, I gave you my heart. I trusted you with it, but you've broken it so many times."
"No Alex, you had plenty of chances. Come on Bill, let's go." Gigi walked behind Bill out the door and to the street. Bill was calling for a taxi when Alex grabbed Gigi's arm.
"Bill, Gigi and I need to talk. You go on, I'll make sure I get her home safe." Bill nodded due to his timid nature and got in the taxi. When it pulled away Alex started talking.
"Gigi, I was wrong. I honestly don't know what I was thinking. I want to take it slow with you because you're different. You mean more to me than all those other women I used to waste my time with. Gigi, please forgive me. I'll do anything."
"Alex, I kept giving you chances. I kept believing that you had changed, but I should have known. A wise person once told me that I am the rule," Alex looked at Gigi and licked his lips. He wanted to show her that he had changed and that she was not the rule, "and I have to stop thinking that guys will change. I have to stop thinking that-" she was cut off by Alex desperately smashing their lips together. He ran his hair through her hair and rubbed the side of her face with his thumb. He then slowly slid his lips up and kissed her upper lip while she kissed his bottom one.
"I'm the exception." she whispered smiling.
Alex looked at her. "You are my exception." he whispered. This time they both went in for the kiss. Gigi wrapped her arms around Alex's neck and Alex hugged her closer to him.
3 you are my exception 3
