I wake up and remember what day it is. My 18th birthday. But before I can think about it any more, I hear someone whisper from outside my door. "Eliza! Good morning, Eliza!" I recognize the voice instantly, it is the voice of my life long bestfriend, Peter Morrison. "Eliza wake up! Today's your big day!" I smile, and slowly get out of bed. I walk to the door and open it, seeing Peter with the biggest smile on his face and a bouquet of flowers. "Happy birthday, Eliza!" He hugs me and hands me the flowers. "Oh Peter aren't you a doll! Thank you so much!" I say, and hug him once again.
We walk outside my bedroom to find complete silence. My family is still asleep. I turn to Peter and say "How did you get in the house?" Before I can finish my question he holds up a pair of silver keys and says "Eliza your family really needs a new hiding spot for the keys, I mean, putting them in the plant is a little old... More like 18 years old, actually." I giggle and say "Well, since everyone is asleep, wanna go get some coffee? Go shopping?" "Yes! Are you going to call Diana?"
- Diana Edwards was my other bestfriend. Peter, Diana, and I have literally been friends since birth. We were born exactly 3 days apart. Peter, being the oldest, then me, then Diana. Which yes, does mean yesterday was Peter's birthday and tomorrow is Diana's. -
"Yep! I thought she would have came with you here?" I say. Peter shakes his head "no she's still sleeping of course. You know how she is." I nod my head, I do know how she is. She has a strict rule that no one is allowed to make any sort of contact with her until after 12 P.M.,when she wakes up. I check my watch, it reads 11:10. "Well looks like today Diana will be waking up a whopping 50 minutes early. Lets go" I quickly do my makeup and put on my clothes as Peter gets his car warmed up, (we live in Manhattan, it's 32 degrees.) I grab my phone and purse and quickly write on a post it note. "out with Peter and Diana. Be back soon! Xo, Eliza"
