"Everyone, quiet! She's coming!" I whisper shouted.
We decided to throw Madi a surprise birthday party. And Harry's going to TRY to get her back by taking her somewhere nice. I don't know if it'll work, but we're gonna try.
Everyone hid and we waited for Madi and Louis to get back.
Louis hasn't been speaking to me. I don't know why. It's killing me.....
The door opened and Madi came into her house, flipping the light switch on.
"Now." I whispered.
We all jumped up and shouted, "SURPRISE!"
She smiled. "Awwww thanks guys!" she came over and hugged me, the girls, and they boys. Well, all but Harry.
He opened his arms for a hug but she just turned to me, completely ignoring him. He had a look of hurt on his face. Poor Harry.
"Did you do all of this?" she asked me.
I smiled. "Um, no actually. Harry helped me." I said, gesturing towards him.
She turned and for a moment, I thought she was actually going to hug him. Boy, was I wrong. She looked at him and rolled her eyes, then turned to me and hugged me tight.
"Thanks so much, Aubrey!" she said. I looked over at Harry. He had his hands in his pockets and he was looking at the ground. I walked over to him.
"Hey. You okay?" I asked him, putting a hand on his shoulder.
I could see a small, single tear slide down his face and hit the floor.
I hugged him tight. "It'll be ok. She'll love what you did for her. Promise."
He nodded and we went to the other room, where Madi was just starting to open her presents.
The first one was from Ash. It was a locket.
"Aww thanks, Ash." Madi said.
"Open it." Ash answered.
Madi obeyed and opened it. Her eyes started to water. She hugged Ashlyn tight.
"Thank you, Ashlyn. Thank you so much." she whispered.
I grabbed the locket and smiled, tears forming in my eyes too. One side was of her, her brothers, Ashlyn, Kate, and her youngest cousin, Aaryn when they were little. The other side was of Madi, Ashlyn, and Riley with their grandmother, Jodi, before she died of cancer.
I started to cry as well.
After about five minutes of crying, Madi opened her next present from Sky and Haley. They got her some personalized dance sweats and a brand new pair of Jazz shoes.
"A dancer's dream." Madi said, laughing, "Thanks, girls." she hugged them.
Next was the present from Salina. She got her a brand new laptop with a purple case. Madi flipped out.
We all laughed and she opened her present from the boys (Except Harry, since he got her something super special.).
She opened it up to find their iCarly script, signed, and a tie dye T-shirt, also signed. She squeeled and hugged them all tightly.
"Thank you thank you thank you! I love it!" she squeeled. They all laughed.
Next, was me.
I gave her the box and she opened it. I got the exact reaction I was hoping for.
"Oh. My. God." she whispered, "Aubrey........"
She pulled out the scrapbook labeled, 'Thanks For Being My Unbiological Sister<3'.
She flipped through the pages, aging from when we were just a year old to just a few days before our fight. The very last picture was me and her lying on our backs on the sidewalk, each of us using one of our hands to make a full heart together, crossing our fingers with our free hands, and we were laughing. It was our favorite picture of each other.
Madi had tears running freely down her face, but she didn't bother to wipe them away. She and I hugged tight for about five minutes.
"Thank you." she whispered.
"No thank you, Madi. For being-"
"My unbiological sister." we said at the same time. That was our favorite thing to say to each other. We laughed.
"You still have one more present, you know." I said.
She looked confused.
I pointed to Harry, who was standing by the door.
Madi hesitated and very slowly walked over to him. He whispered something in her ear and she hesitatedly nodded, walking upstairs to get changed, then went out the door with him.
Let's hope this works.
