It never failed. He threw himself head long into a relationship and then was gutted when it didn't work out. It was like he was a freaking hopeless romantic!, he thought with disgust.
He looked at his sparse contacts, eyeing the new name on his phone. He hemmed and hawed before he finally gave in & texted her.
"Hi! I'm Hinni Hashini!" she greeted him, bubbly and sweet. "How can I help you?"
"Umm..." Benito made a face. "Er... maybe $100," he said apologetically. "Sorry, just got a job!"
Hinni's face fell. "Oh, well, that's okay," she said. Glancing behind him, her eyes widened in surprise. "Oooooooo myyyyyyyy goodness!" she whispered excitedly. "Is that Gabrielle Arias? Omigod! Omigod! I can't believe she came here!"
Hinni clutched his arm. "Omigod! You can introduce me? Omigod! I'll love you forever!"
"Sure, come on!" he said, leading her outside.
"Wait," Gabrielle interrupted, "You brought me out here to buy clothes for you?" she asked with surprise.
"Uh, yeah," Benito said slowly.
Hinni gaped as the starlet left before turning back to Benito. "Oh my gosh! Unreal!" she said with awe. "I met Gabrielle Arias! I can't wait until I tell my friends!"
Benito watched Gabrielle retreat, surprised by the brush off. "Yeah... I guess..." he said with real disappointment. So much for making friends with her! Gabrielle was a little too snobby for his tastes!
Hinni grabbed his arm and tugged him inside. "Come on, I'm gonna make you look like a million bucks!" she told him happily.
Benito watched her leave, appreciating the way her skirt flounced with every step.
"Oh! I'll definitely be calling you!" he promised.
She turned and winked at him. "Good. I can't wait!" she giggled.
And to think he'd been all depressed that Aislara had practically kicked him out last night.
He couldn't wait to see Hinni again!

AN: Wow! What a twist! Benito invited Gabrielle out to get to know her alittle better. Figured it'd be nice to get some new threads while we were out there! But, holy moly - he fell head over heels for little Hinni!
Gabrielle stayed maybe 2 seconds before getting upset and leaving. I'm not even sure what was said to make her ditch the outing.
But yeah! Benito has another friend, maybe love interest. They talked all afternoon long. I know their conversation is pretty short. I just didn't want to invest that much in a long conversation for them. Lol!
Might be a problem until he figures out what's going on with Aislara. Is she as over him as he is over her, I wonder!
I was hoping for something a little more islandy, but Benito is going to rock the new look for awhile! ;)
