"Why did this have to happen, Niall?"
I was on my front porch, knees up to my chest and Niall was sitting next to me with his arms wrapped around my shoulders. Ash was inside, making hot cocoa for us. Such a nice girl:)
"I don't know, Sky." he answered me, kissing the top of my head.
Ash came outside with three cups of hot cocoa. she handed one cup to me and another to Niall.
We thanked her and she sat down with us.
"We need to do something about this, you know." Ash said, after a long silence.
"Yeah. But, what?" I answered.
"Well, isn't Madi's birthday coming soon?" Niall asked.
"Yeah. Next Saturday. Why?" I answered.
'Well, what if we got Harry to do something romantic for her and Aubrey to somehow make up with her before then?"
Ash and I shared a glance.
"That could work." Ash said.
I nodded agreeing.
"We need to get them all together somehow......." I trailed off.
"Yeah, at my house. So can you guys come? No, they won't be there.......Ok then.......see you then." I hung up with Madi.
Niall, Ash, and I all decided that we were gonna get everyone to come to my place and TRY to make up.
"Well?" Niall asked.
"Madi and her little 'group' are coming. What about the others?" I answered.
"They're on their way." he said.
I nodded and heard the doorbell ring. I went to answer it.
Aubrey and her 'group' was at the door.
"Hey, guys! C'mon in!" I said.
They all entered and sat down.
"You guys hungry?" I asked.
They nodded, but no one said a word. God, this is gonna be difficult.
I brought them all a platter of snacks and sat down on the floor.
"So, why'd you invite us exactly?" Harry asked.
"Just to chat. Figured you'd need someone else to talk to that won't try to-" I was interrupted by a knocking at the door.
Here we go. Let's hope this works.
I opened the door.
"Hi." I said to Madi. She smiled then waved.
I moved aside to let her in. Her smile immediately faded and her face turned red.
"You told me they wouldn't be here!" she shouted.
I shrugged and pushed her all the way in.
"You guys need to work this out. Madi, you and Aubrey need to work this out the most. You've been best friends since you were babies, for God's sakes! And Louis, you and Harry need to talk things out. WITHOUT violence, Lou." I said, "The rest of you, come with me and Niall. Louis and Harry, you guys go to the den. Madi and Aubrey, you two stay here."
The rest of us left. God, I hope this works.
