Lilly was awoken by someone shaking her hard and opened her eyes to see Annah sat on the edge of her bed.
"C'mon Lilly it's Christmas!" Annah shouted in Lilly's ear. Lilly had forgotten how excited Annah got over Christmas then realised that she was just as excited.
"It's Christmas!!" She shouted back. She jumped up and hugged Annah tightly.
"Uh. Lilly. Too hard. Too hard. Can't. Breath."
"That was the general idea." Lilly laughed but let go anyway.
"Shut up and be excited again not slightly sociopathic." Annah said sarcastically.
"You love me either way." Lilly winked at her.
"Yeah yeah." Annah laughed, she leapt across the room to her trunk and twirled on her heel to Lilly.
"Calm down there! Trying to be a ballerina now?"
She handed Lilly a large box and said,
"Just open it and yes. I am trying to be a ballerina. Working out quite well don't you think?" She giggled.
"Yeah. 'Course." Lilly looked down at the box wrapped carefully in pale pink wrapping paper and silver ribbon. She carefully untied the ribbon and tore off the paper. She saw two boxes, each wrapped in a different patterned paper. A small one in baby blue lacy paper, and a slightly larger one in a pastel flowery wrapping with turquoise swirls.
She opened the smallest and a sliver necklace fell out. It was still in the box so Lilly didn't see the charm, only the plain chain.
"Pick it up" Annah said. Lilly did so and smiled as the charm was Batman's logo.
"Annah! I love it! You know how much I like Batman." She turned to the second box and opened it. A huge stack of Acid Pops fell out. Lilly laughed and picked one up,
"I think I could do with some of these when someone annoys me." She grinned.
"Thank you Annah. I love them." She hugged Annah tightly.
"Okay. Time for yours!" Lilly said happily.
"Okay!" Annah said.
She handed the Comic-wrapped package to Annah and watched her unwrap it.
Annah gasped as she looked at the bracelet.
"Awh! It's so beautiful!" She smiled at Lilly and opened the Jelly Slugs.
"I was nearly out of these! Thank you!" She hugged Lilly again and opened the Slugs.
"Want one?" She asked thickly, mouth stuffed with one already.
Lilly laughed at her, "Nah. I'll wait until breakfast so I can have less sugary food, I can hear your teeth rotting from here!" She joked, Annah just poked out her tongue.
Lilly dressed in black skinny jeans, her favourite Batman top (which was for boys but she wanted it so bad she didn't care), her batman necklace and her black Converse. It was Christmas so who cared if she dressed like a nerdy muggle. Annah was dressed in a loose flowery play suit with sandals.
"Annah. What are you wearing? It's December not July!" Lilly asked.
"Ah who cares?!" She replied. "I can wear what I want to."
"Hang on. I thought you had a special red dress for this Christmas?" She knew Annah had planned to wear this tight, blood red outfit.
"Oh. I changed my mind. Too tight." And she walked down the stairs, not wanting to talk anymore about it. Too tight. Lilly thought. Of course. And she quickly picked up Zach, Audrey, Dean and Jared's presents and followed Annah to meet Zach and Audrey.
