Tuesday : Barcelona vs. Real Madrid game

"I am so excited! We're here, at the Nou Camp! The energy is electric! Wish you were here!" I am practically screaming into my handphone so my dad can hear me. Ben, who is sitting next to me, looks amused.

"Try to take a video if you can, Tash!" My dad, the life-long Barcelona fan, tells me. My dad and I catch a Barcelona game together every year when we visit my grandparents in Barcelona. Now, at my first Barca game without him, I had to give him a call.

"I will, Dad! The match is starting! Send my love to Mum, Maria and Stephen!" I can feel my pulse quickening as the chanting in the stadium becomes deafening.
"Will do! Bye, hon." 
The referee blows the whistle, and the game begins.

-----

It's half-time! Barca are two goals up. Ben and I are soaking in the atmosphere, and eating the beef sandwiches I brought. 

"So, second-half predictions?" I wash down my sandwich with a gulp of Pepsi. 

"More yellow-cards. Someone is definitely going to be sent off." Ben wipes his mouth with a tissue paper and hands me one as well. 

"Not someone from Barca, I hope. And if it is someone from Real Madrid, let it not be Casillas or Alonso." I say, with a smile.

"Why?" Ben asks as he puts his arm around me. 
"Why? Because they're cute, that's why." I reply as my head rests on his shoulder.

Ben snorts. 
"Just 'cause I'm a Barca fan doesn't mean I can't appreciate the opponent's attributes." I smirk as I look up at him. He holds my gaze. Something flickers in his eyes. He opens his mouth as if he's about to say something and then..."BARCA, BARCA, BAAARCA!" booms this enthusiastic balding man behind us. We both turn to look at him. He grins at us, his fats jiggling from his arms. "Mirar!" he points a stubby finger in the direction of the field. Ben and I turn our attention to the pitch, where the players are running back out. The commentator informs us the second half is about to begin. 

I sit back upright. Ben watches me as I take another swig from my Pepsi can. 
"Hold on tight, it's going to be a crazy second-half." I playfully nudge him.
He smiles back and I think I see that same flicker in his eyes again. But the match is on now, and I start chanting along with the rest of the spectators.
