1. A unexpected Call

I woke up in the middle of the night to my cell phone ringing. I looked at the LED clock on my bedside table. 2:00 am. Why the fuck would someone call me at two in the morning? I answered the phone without looking at the caller ID. 

"What do you want?" I questioned.

"Is this Lillian Montgomery?" A male voice asked. 

"Yeah. Who's calling?" 

"This is Brian Mulligan, head of the VidCon planning committee." I shot up and was suddenly wide awake. Why would they be calling me? Yeah I have a semi popular YouTube channel but still. "We've taken a look at your channel and would like you to appear at our next convention."

"Oh my God I would love to." I almost squealed. 

"Great. We'll email you the details." 

"Yes. Of course. Thank you so much." The line went dead and I started smiling like an idiot. There was no way I'd be getting back to sleep any time soon. I turned on the light and pulled out my laptop and decided to make a new video. The camera popped on and, Realizing how gross it looked, I went to brush my hair. 

The video was just me announcing my appearance at the next VidCon. I double checked my subscribers to see what caught their attention. 6,234,805 subscribers?! That's way more than I thought. 

At 5:30 my alarm went off. I had completely forgotten I had school today. I shut down my laptop and got dressed and did my makeup. At 6:00 I went downstairs and grabbed breakfast. My parents were at work by now which I was greatfull for. I wanted to tell them the news later. 

I grabbed my keys from the counter and unlocked my black, '67 Chevy Impala. I had to pick up Audrie so I left a bit early. 

I pulled up to her house and honked the horn a few times. When she walked out the door I stuck my head out the window. 

"Get in loser we're going shopping." I said. Half the fun of being her friend was quoting Mean Girls. She slid into the passenger seat and smiled. 

"Damn Lil," She said. "It looks like you didn't sleep all night."

"I kind of didn't." I admitted.

"What the hell were you doing last night?" 

"I got an important call." I shrugged.

"Is it bad? Don't tell me it's bad." 

"It's not bad. It's amazing. It's... it's frantastic!" I giggled, using the phrase our favorite YouTuber, Connor Franta, made up. It seemed fitting for the situation.

"You never use that word." She inquired. "What's the scoop. Come on bitch tell me." 

"Well, I got a call from the head of the VidCon directors board."

"This is already exiting." She said in a sing-song voice. 

"Shut up. As I was saying. He called me last night and told me that they wanted me to make an appearance at the next convention!"

"Oh my goodness grationious!" She squealed. "You're gonna be a panelist?"

"Yes. I'm getting the details later." My iPhone rang, playing the song Shattered by Trading Yesterday. That was my email alert.

"Can you open that Audrie?" I asked. "That could be them." She fished the phone from my purse and read the message.

"Dear Lillian Montgomery, we are pleased to inform you that you will be a featured guest at this years VidCon in New York. You will appear on three panels with several other popular YouTube personalities. The names of which will be listed below. The convention will be held at Javits Center on July 15 through 21. We are very exited to meet you in person. There will be a meeting for all panelists on February 19. There you will meet your fellow video makers and learn more about the convention. Hope to see you there."

"Oh my god!" I cheered as I pulled into the school parking lot. "Give me the phone." She gave it to me and a scrolled to the bottom of the message. 

"Who are you on the panels with?" She asked.

"On the first one I'm on there is Ray William Johnson, Ryan Higa, Jenna Marbles, DTrix and Mark and Todd form Barely Political. On the second panel I'm on with Tanya Burr, adrisaurus, Ingrid, and Jon Cozart. On the last one I'm on with Sawyer Hartman, Joey Graceffa, Tyler Oakley, and, oh my god Connor Franta!" 

"Oh my god Connor is going to be on the same panel as you!" She giggled. I have had a crush on Connor since I first saw his videos. 

"I'm so exited!" I squealed.
