Chapter 15 ~ Caitlyn’s POV
Aislins coming home today!! She's coming home!! I do hope I have everything done! Lets see what do I need...? I went through a mental checklist to make sure Aislins welcomed home "party" was ready and that everything was going to be perfect.
I had invited Connor, Joe and Aislin over, but Aislin doesn't know that Connor and Joe are going to be there.
I had bought Aislins favorite soda, pepsi, and sprite ,and her favorite snacks, eggless peanut butter cookie dough and pizza. I also picked out a bunch of movies and games for us to play as watch.
I want it to be a casual party. Just the four of us hanging out and eating.
Joe and I have been kissing pretty regularly. Not like every time we see each other we kiss but on our dates will kiss each other goodnight but otherwise its mostly kisses on the cheek.
"Oh my god you're home!! It's soo good to see you!!" I shouted as I hugged Aislin. She had just stepped off the plane and I was driving her back to my house for the party.
"Caitlyn! You don't know how much I've missed you!"
I unlocked my front door and ushered Aislin. The party was going to be held in the newly done basement. I didn’t want Aislin to start worrying about Steven coming over.I’m just really happy that she’s finally home and that she can spend a lot of time with Conner. I showed Aislin down towards the basement and I started my video camera. I have Aislin a little shove to make her go first.
She walked down the winding lightly lit staircase. I followed behind with my video camera taping. She got to the bottom of the stairs a flipped on the light switch. I stepped off the last step and the boys jumped out and yelled; "welcome home!" Aislin put her hands to her mouth to stifle her scream. While Aislin was in shock the rest of us were laughing. Connor practically ran up to Aislin and wrapped her in hug kissing the top if her head. Joe came around to me and put an arm around my waists to make sure I was getting this all on tape.
We danced to some music, talked, drank soda and aye while we all caught up. I suggested that we play truth or dare. So we all gathered around the couch. We played through a couple rounds before Joe distracted Aislin with a really good truth. I got up and gathered my video camera.
Aislin and Connor were cuddling on the loveseat while Joe and I were on the floor. I had hooked up my video camera to show Aislin all the recording that I had done. I pressed play and the screen lit up with smiling faces all of us the day before Aislin had left. I then had tapped Joe and Connor eating frozen yogurt the day Aislin left. I few more videos as pictures popped up on the screen until we go to the one where Joe and I were in the park. I had videotaped Joe and I kissing, of course it wasn't our first kiss.
Then popped up a video of Joe, Connor and I gettin ready for Aislins surprise welcome home party. By the time the video stopped Aislin had tears rolling down her cheeks.
"Oh guys. Caitlyn, wow. You really outdid yourself. This, all of this, was amazing and these are tears of joy. I just, thank you all so much. I'm...I'm...so lucky to have friends and, a boyfriend, like you. Thank you." Aislin says wiping away tears.
Connor pulls her closer and kisses her wet cheek then the top of her head. Joe and I just smile at her. We sat there in silence for a few minutes before Joe pulls me off into another room.
