12. Writing the Cards


"I couldn't make it to your house, so I thought I'd bring you your present, but you can't find it easily, you'll have to look for it. There are seven hidden cards in your house and maybe out of it. Each card will tell you to do something, you'll have to do what it says so you can find the others. Once you find the last, put the first word of each card, follow it too and you'll find your present. It's not much, but it's all I could give you, I hope you like it. 

PS: Make sure you solve the puzzle after finding all the cards and doing all they tell you and DON'T try to solve them before that.

Card number:! 

PUT on the best winter dress you have, but make sure it makes you warm or you'll be freezing. Once you've done this, you'll find your second card."


Kim took a look at the card I wrote. 

"What will be the puzzle's answer?" She asked with a smile. I had something in my mind that I didn't want to tell for some reason. 

"It's not your business." I said joking. 

"Oh some on!"she insisted.

"Hey, it's my present, ain't it? Listen, does her dress have  a pocket?" I asked turning back to business. 

"Umm, wait let me remember ... yeah it does." Kim finally answered. 

"Great, then put the next one in her dress. Now let's write the second one. What was it? Wear shoes?"

"Yeah, something like that."

"OK." I said and I started writing the second card.


"Card Number:2

THIS time you have to put on some matching shoes." 


I wrote. I looked at Kim and she nodded. 

"Shall I put the other one in her shoes?" She asked.

"Yup, that'd be good." 

Now what? I thought. Then I imagined our meeting, if it has to be behind that rock, there has to be some hot chocolate and cookies, carrots even maybe, but no, just hot chocolate and cookies. I turned to Kim.,

"I want her to make us hot drinks." I said. Kim looked rather puzzled, but then she said. 

"All right." Slowly. And so I wrote down. 


"Card number:3

CARD number 3 says: Go to the kitchen, make two drinks of hot chocolate and get two cookies too and put them all together, (You're gonna need them later)."


"Why is she gonna need them late?" Kim asked. 

"Wait, I've got something in my head."

"If she's going to the kitchen and making hot drinks, then where shall I put the next card?" 

"Umm," I thought and then I got an idea. "In the hot chocolate's can." I answered. Kim wrote down on a piece of paper, she also wrote the previous things too.

"Just in case I forgot anything." She said as I watched her do so. 

"And now?" I asked. 

"Okay, now what's the next word of your 'very secret puzzle'  Mr. Luke?"  Kim asked sarcastically. I smiled, read the sentence in my head and then said,


We started thinking for a while, 

"I wanna meet her in almost the same place we first met." I finally told Kim., because I needed her help in thinking. "What if she saw me from the window, going out there?"

"I'll just draw all the house's curtains down." 

"Yeah and that won't be suspicious at all!" I said. 

"Well then maybe Lills will." Kim said giving me an idea, and so I wrote, 


"Card number:4

DOWN, down. Pull every curtain in your house down. (Close 'em all)"


We hadn't any ideas now, at least I hadn't. 

"Are you gonna bring her a present?" I was a bit surprised, haven't i told her?

"Umm, well I thought that, her moving in with us and making her this party would be good, but I still need to get her something."

"What?" Kim asked shocked. "She's gonna move in with you?!" 

"Well, if it's not a problem with either you, your parents or her, of course." Kim was still shocked now. "You know you're gonna live here too don't you?" I said comforting her. "Like, literally. You're gonna stay here until it's your bed time and maybe even sleep here, if you want." I continued. 

"Well of course I will." Said Kim frowning her eyebrows and smiling. I can tell her mood got a bit better, she and Lill love each other a lot, and Lill wont bare leaving her forever, and I like Kim too, she 's good and hasn't done me any harm, so why not? "Why were you asking?" And apparently this reminded her of something. 

"Oh, I was thinking that maybe you should get her some flowers, she loves flowers." flowers. That's a nice idea. 

"Yeah, sure. I'd get them in her birthday."

"And maybe then, we can put the cards between the flowers." Kim suggested. I agreed and wrote down, repeating the puzzle sentence in my head. 


"Card number:5

AND now turn left, near the tv there are flowers, these are yours, hope they're your favorite.

PS: Maybe you should try taking to the flowers, because I know they want to tell you something. ;)"


"Rose, red ones." Kim said as she took a glimpse at the card, smiling. 

"Thanks." With Kim it was much easier! I really was a good thing I called her. 

"And so I'll put it between the flowers." Kim murmured as she wrote it down on her paper. 

"Now the next word's kiss" I told Kim. She gave me a look that said, 'really?!' then she laughed and said. 

"Then let her kiss mum. I'll put the next card in her hair."

"Alright then," I said and wrote. 


"Card number:6

KISS your mother on the cheek without telling her why you did so. Once you do you'll find the seventh and last card,"


Now Kim and I exchanged looks and said, 

"The last card!" In union. We both laughed. 

"I'll jut=st guide her there now." I said, as I tried to imagine our place from Lill's point of view and wrote. 


"Card number:7


you're almost there, beautiful. Now follow these steps to find your present. 

1) Go to the kitchen and take the two drinks and cookies. 

2)Get out of the house.

3)Now take twenty huge steps forward ... Take twelve huge steps to the left ... Now, look at your right, you'll find a rock, go behind it and wait."


"And this is it!" I said to Kim, 

"Well then good job." she said, "You're still not going to tell me about what you'll do there?" She asked curious, 

"Yeah, I'm still not telling you." I said laughing. She hit me with a pillow. I felt it would be rude to let her come here just to make Lill the birthday present so when she said she was gonna leave since it's all over I told her to stay. I didn't have feelings for Kim , I never did, not more than a friend at least, or probably a sister. We started talking a bit, about funny stuff, embarrassing moments, about Lilly, then we even sang childhood songs and laughed, I can tell that Kim too had me as a friend or a brother, and this relieved me. Then mum calle us to dinner and Kim joined us, after hesitation. When I asked her why she said, 

"Well, Lilly hasn't ever done this, I won't like to do it before she does." But then my mum insisted on her and she said ok. It was a sad thing to remember that Lilly actually never had dinner with my family, but it's ok, soon she'll always do so. I gave Kim the cards -all of them except for the first one- and she left, saying how lucky Lill was to have someone loves her as much as I do. I appreciated it very much, I needed confidence. I then kissed my sisters and mum went to bed, tomorrow I had to talk to the neighbors and the balloons shop and everything. Tomorrow was a rush day.
