11. The Surprise

"Hello?" I heard her soft voice answering finally, it sounded worried. 

"Hey, Lill." I was really nervous, I don't know why. "Umm, so-" I didn't know how to put it into words!

"It's OK,Luke. I totally-"

"What? No, Lill. I didn't call to tell you that-" she must have thought I was calling her to tell her that it's all over. The conversation was full of interruptions. 

"I know why you called, Luke and I know that it's not easy for you, so don't worry, you don't have to explain everything-"

NO,NO, I wanted to yell, 

"Lilly, I don't want to tell you bad new-"

"Luke - It was my pleasure to have you as a friend, or maybe even more, even if it only lasted for a day, bye." She hung up. WHAT?! I was very puzzled, why was she so certain I was going to stop meeting her? She must've thought that my family didn't like her. I was still looking at my phone in shock, then about two second later a reminder showed up. 

Lilly's birthday ... Two days are left. 

I knew it from the day she told me a bit about herself and I instantly wrote it down on my mobile as a reminder. It made me smile and it gave me an idea. I looked at my family's faces and they were worried, maybe they thought she didn't want to live with us, or that she didn't love me back? 

"Listen everyone, Lilly thinks I don't want to meet her again and she wants to make it easy for me." I explained. "We'll make her a birthday party, and we'll tell her about the whole moving out with us part then." I continued. they all agreed happily. I went to my room and looked at my single bed. How could both of us sleep here? I thought. 

"Hey mum," I called. 


"Where will Lilly sleep?" 

Mum gave me a look then smiled and said, 

"We'll buy you a queen sized bed." 

I went back to my room and opened the shutters just a bit and looked at her. She was standing by the fireplace, she was crying. It made me feel so sad but a bit happy too that she cared about me, and even bad for feeling happy about this, but I smiled, and couldn't stop my stupid smile. I couldn't wait for her birthday! I have to buy her a present though, what would it be? I saw her sweeping her tears and heading towards the window, she must've remembered I could see her. She looked at my direction and closed the curtains, I was still smiling. 

I had to think about the present now, I thought and thought and thought, it had to be something fun. At last I got an idea, what if I hid some cards in her house -and I would probably need her family's help in this- that told her to do stuff to lead her here, or actually not here, to our secret place, behind that rock we hid behind the first day we met! I loved this idea, I immediately grabbed my phone and called the other number she gave me, it was her home's. I was nearly sure she wasn't gonna answer it, so I called it. Kim answered. Great. 

"Hello?" She said, 

"Hey Kim, it's Luke-" 

"Oh, I'll give you-"

"NO. No, no!" 

"excuse me?"

"I want to talk to you." and because it sounded really weird I said very fast, "Because I want to make Lilly a birthday present." 

Kim let out a breath and seemed relieved by this last part. 


"OK?" I asked after i explained everything to her, then added. "But remember, it's a surprise, tell your mother. Oh and one more thing-" I sad, I didn't know how to say it properly but I spat it out. "We're not supposed to be meeting, Lill and I, she thinks I want to dump her or something, but I don't and she must still think so OK?" 

"Umm, OK." Kim said, then she laighed. "Anything else, Romeo?" This made me laugh too. 


"Right, bye." 

we hung up. I started thinking about my house, it must get decorated and everything. Mum must've called the decorator now so he can bring us the bed. I looked from my window, Lilly was going out, walking. This was my chance, once she was a bit far I hurried to her house, I rang the bell, her mum opened it. 

"Oh hello Luke, dear." she said cheerfully. 

"Hey! Umm did Kim tell you about everything?" I asked. 

"Yes," she replied,smiling. "Come in." 

"I can't. Lill'll be here soon, I know it." I said. "Could you just please give me your number so I can tell you where to put the cards? I'll write them today and give them to you tomorrow by mail, does Lill get the mail?"  I asked. 

"We'll make sure she does. Okay it sounds perfect." 

So she gave me her and Kim's numbers and I flew home, I was very lucky, my timing was perfect because just minutes after I arrived home she was going home too. I now had to invite everyone in the neighborhood, and Kim will invite her friends.  

To go to the party Lill should wear a dress, I really couldn't do this alone, so I called Kim. 

"Hello?" Kim answered fast.

"Hey Kim, it's me Luke. Listen Kim would you mind if you visited me so we could both write these cards, I dunno how to do it alone." Kim gave a small laugh. 

"Sure, I'll be there in a sec. Like literally." And so she was, for I saw her from the window and the doorbell rang. It was the first time she was here, so I greeted her and lead her to my room and asked mum to make us two cups of tea. 

"So?" She said sitting on my bed. 

"So I was thinking that Lill must first wear a dress for the occasion."

"Oh, oh!" she said enthusiastically."Just write down 'wear your favorite dress' I know hers. And the second card 'wear some matching shoes' or something."

"Wait, I have an idea." I said as I tried to write it down on the first card.
