CHAPTER 47: NEWBIE LOVER!
I wake up in a daze as I’m not sure which these tangled legs and arms belong to. I blink rapidly to chase away my drowsiness and break into laughter once I see Phun’s sleeping face. His hair is all messy like a little kid. It makes sense that he’s passed out like this after last night. He was really rowdy so I returned the favor. If we were keeping scores, I’m still technically losing. Let’s just say that Phun didn’t get to have his way with me and got away with it. Heh heh heh.
I check my own watch, it tells me that it’s nearly noon now so I shake Phun lightly to wake him up. “Get up, it’s almost noon.” It takes a few tries before he finally starts moving around.
Phun stretches his body a bit before he reaches over to hug me. “Ah, you were really something last night…flipping things around like that.” Heh heh heh, he’s still not over this.
I raise my brows mockingly at him despite his face still buried into the pillow. “If you stay this skinny like this then I’m gonna keep flipping ya. We’re not even yet so you better watch out.” I caution him as I was way too exhausted last night to continue. Phun laughs heartily once he heard what I had to say.
“How about now?” His hand is as quick as his lips. I immediately grab a hold of it when I feel him caressing me in a certain area.
I use my other hand to smack him in the head. “Get your mind out of the gutter, asshole! It’s time to get up and do something productive. I’m starving.” I tell him while getting up to use the bathroom, but then Phun rubs his eyes and follows me. What does he want? “Why are you following me?”
“What? I thought we were gonna take a shower?”
“No, I’m taking a shower first.” This is my room, dude!
“Let’s just take it together.” He tells me while he scratches his arm, almost as if he’s simply discussing the weather. Meanwhile, I must look like I’ve seen a ghost.
“Real funny! Get out of here, I’m gonna take a shower.” But no matter how hard I push him away, this tall guy refuses to budge. And now he’s taunting me with a grin.
“But you take baths with Om. Don’t think that I don’t know about that.” When the hell did those two talk about this?! Whatever! That’s different! “Cut the crap, Om’s my friend.”
“Eh? What about me then?” And now he’s acting cute. But still obnoxious. He’s being obnoxiously cute. I’m not giving in to him but he shoves his way inside the bathroom. He turns the faucet on and uses the shower head to wet his hair. Now, he’s calling me over and inviting me to join him. “Come on, we’re wasting water.”
Sighhhhh. If that’s what he wants!
We spent a bit of time getting ready before I drove Phun to his house on my motorcycle so he could change. He was telling me that he wanted to go see a movie. That’s great. You still have the energy to go out? I’m freaking tired.
I chatted with nong Pang in the living room while I wait for him to change his clothes to kill some time. His little sister continued to be ambiguous and teased me about my relationship with Phun. But it was strange this time around. I guess it was because the stuff we said to fool nong Pang all came true. Heh heh.
Phun didn’t take too long to change. He arrives back downstairs dressed down to the nines. That traitor! Meanwhile, here I am wearing my (school) shorts with a pair of flipflops. Yet, you’re wearing a fancy pair of jeans?! Naturally, I give him the stink eye when he makes way down the steps.
“Do I look good?” He has the balls to ask.
“You always look good, p’Phun~” Nong Pang beams at him with compliments. On the other hand, I smile at him dryly. “Get your ass back upstairs and change into shorts right now.” It’s time for some tough love with this guy!
Not that someone like Phun Phumipat would ever listen to me. He grins at me and lovingly ruffles nong Pang’s hair. “This p’Phun is so handsome and anyone would wanna date him, right? There’s only that p’Noh over there who wants to keep him looking haggard.” Pompous ass!
After he has his fill of praises for his choice of long length pants, he turns and drags me along with him. “Come on, let’s go now or we won’t get any tickets for the good showtimes.” Damn this jerk. Are you deaf or do you just don’t understand anything?! I said go change your pants!
In the end…Master Phun dragged me to Siam. I’m wearing a used t-shirt with my school (blue) shorts and a pair of flipflops. Well, then. It can’t be any worse than this. I thought we were gonna go watch a movie at Major Cineplex near Ekamai. But that jerk betrayed me by telling the cab driver to take us to this place. So here we are at Siam, with me looking like Master Phun’s servant.
“Don’t worry about it, man. You’re hot, you look good wearing anything.” Listen to him trying to comfort me…without any hint of sincerity.
“It’s good that you realize that.” Don’t think that someone like this Noh will ever be humble. I march toward the movie theater with Phun trailing behind me. Luckily, Phun and I wanted to see the same movie. It’s an independent film so it’s only being shown at Lido and Scala. We arrive at Scala around 2 pm but the only available showtime is at 4 pm. We decide to grab a bite to eat and kill some time despite having had lunch at Phun’s place already.
“Coca Suki? I wanna eat there.” He swears that this is just a place to kill time? I’m stunned by his choice of going to a full-featured restaurant. It seems like he really wants to eat there though so I don’t want to go against him. I guess I can let him have his way today. Secretly, I’m thinking about how Phun prefers to eat old people’s good just like Om does.
The two of us walk across to Siam Discovery from Siam Square. Coca Suki isn’t very crowded like always. There’s no need to wait for two hours like Sizzlers located opposite of this place. Phun and I chat while we are being taken to our table by a hostess. But before I could look around and have a seat, I hear my name being called.
Who the hell was that? The voice wasn’t very loud but I heard him clearly. I look around to find the source of the voice. It turns out to be nong Mick, with Om trying to cover his mouth to silence him. Heh heh. You think you can hide from me? I don’t think so!
Phun seems to be pretty startled having run into Om like this himself. There’s a chilling smile on my face as I advance over to those two right away. “No more hangover, man? I see that you brought nong Mick to Siam on a Saturday for the french horn lesson too.” Heh heh heh. Let’s see what kind of lame excuses he’ll give his time around.
“Oh, it’s not like that, p’. He asked me to come get some books with him.” Oh, nong Mick. You are so adorably naive. I burst out laughing as I watch Om failing to cover nong Mick’s mouth the second time around.
This sneaky friend of mine lets out a heavy sigh. “There’s no need to tell him everything, Mick!” He scolds the underclassman that’s here with him before he glares at me for having caught on to him. “What about you? On a date with Phun?” There it is. The focus is on me in the end.
As expected, Phun pops out from behind me with a grin once his name is called. “Hi, Om. He’s really adorable, by the way.” Heh heh. That’s very good. Keep on helping me like that while I come up with an excuse for myself.
Phun and Om chat for a long while before my friend asks that question again. “So what’s the deal with you and Noh? I’m dying to find out.” Fucking hell! Don’t ask Phun that or he’ll…
“Noh and I are…”
“What? Why can’t I be here with him today? He spent the night at my place after all.” The only way to get out of this is to interrupt Phun. (I know what you were about to say!) I notice that the guy whose spotlight was stolen looking a little disappointed. Om raises his chopsticks and points them at me. “Your dick falls off if you lie!” Damn, that’s harsh.
I automatically cover my crotch before I point my finger back at him. “What about you? What’s the deal with you and nong Mick?! Your dick falls off if you lie!” Bring it on! I can pull the same move as you. Let’s see what he’ll come up as an answer.
Om panics and looks at nong Mick for a split second. I notice that the underclassman from my club is avoiding everyone’s gaze while he’s sitting there with a red face. Hm, that’s adorable.
Om shouts a reply just as I expected him to. “Brothers!” The nerves of him to say that! I don’t know if I’m imagining this but nong Mick seems rather dejected at once. But I don’t have any time to notice anything else because Om fires questions back at me. “What about you? Just friends? For real?” And we’re back to this again! I turn to look at Phun who’s staring at me as if he’s eager to learn the answer too.
“Yeah! Friends!” I brush off the question despite not feeling that way at all. “This is such a waste of time, I’m gonna go eat my food, bastard. I’m out!” Enough! I’m done talking about this. I drag Phun back to our table. We can hear Om laughing away from behind.
The entire time we were eating the sukiyaki, Phun didn’t say a word.
I was little puzzled by his strange behaviors but I didn’t bug him about it. I figured that Phun was starving and wanted to stuff his face instead of talking (to which I didn’t mind). Things got even stranger when we were watching the movie. Phun was still quiet.
I glance at his face in the dark theater. He has his glasses on while looking solemn next to me in spite of this being a comedy film.
I nudge him with my elbow gently. “It’s not funny? I thought you wanted to see this movie.”
“Yeah…” It sounds like he’s giving me a reply just to brush me off. I keep my mouth shut and pay attention to the movie in front of me. However, I couldn’t even last for 10 minutes before I had to glance at Phun again.
He’s still frowning.
“Phun…what’s the matter?”
“Nothing.” What’s with him? We’ve been together for only a day and there’s trouble already? I furrow my brows and stare at the headstrong guy next to me in confusion. I guess the only way to cure this disease is to let it runs its course.
Is it though…?
I glance at Phun’s face once more and his expression is still stern. I decide to just let him be.
The movie continues to play and it’s hilarious. It’s so funny that I’m laughing over and over, so much so that I almost fell out of my seat. Phun, on the other hand, sits still in silence as if his entire left side is paralyzed. I don’t know if he simply doesn’t find the movie funny or he just needs to take a crap with that frown on his face.
Eventually, the movie ends and we leave the theater. I have a big smile on my face. The sky lets us know that it’s getting pretty late. I look down at my watch while wondering if Phun is being quiet because he’s hungry again.
“Wanna get something to eat together?” I ask him in a cheery mood.. The person who came here with me takes off his glasses and puts it in his pants pocket before he shakes his head. Oh…so he’s not hungry?
“Wanna go shopping?” We’re at Siam already anyway, I figured. I actually wanted to check out the books at Kinokuniya. I had placed an order for Music Express magazine the other day and I really want to check out the CD that comes with it. But…Phun seems like he’s totally over it.
“No…what about you?” He answers quietly. At least he asks me in return though. But…it’s not like I can tell him that I’d want to go somewhere with that expression on his face.
“Nah…” I’ll just drop by again on my own some other time.
Phun gives me a nod and he checks his watch before he hails a cab for us. “I’ll drop you off at home then.” Heh, that simple? I’m perplexed but I follow him and get inside the taxi. I suppose Phun is tired. He’ll probably feel better once he gets some rest.
