"I take you to the candy shop,
I'll let you lick the lollypop .
Go 'head girl, don't you stop,
Keep going 'til you hit the spot, woah.
I'll take you to the candy shop,
Boy one taste of what I got.
I'll have you spending all you got,
Keep going 'til you hit the spot, woah." Me and Luke sung as a duet while dancing around the living room with the boys.
Suddenly a loud text-tone cut us off and we all turned to Skip.
"Do you have a reason for interrupting our moment?" Luke asked, sassily as he rested his hands on his hips. Though he didn't look as intimidating as he thought as he was stood on the table holding a teddy-bear that he was singing to.
"Err, that's Max." Skip scratched the back of his neck. "She's coming over in half an hour and I totally forgot."
"Wait, hold up! Who is this Max you talk about?" I add, jumping off the couch I was just dancing on.
"Oh, Maxine's Skips new girlfriend." Jai informs me but Beau cuts him off.
"Not for long." Beau sang as he ruffled up Daniel's hair.
"This is our second date and I forgot all about it!" Daniel moans as he covers his eyes with his hands.
"Not if I have anything to do with!" I sung in a supre-hero-y way. I held my fist up in a super-man stance and rushed past him and into the kitchen, round the island and back into the living room and in front of Skip.
"You and this Maxine are going to have the best date in the whole entire world." I tell him, pointing my finger in his face and the boys have amused looks. "You are going to cook her something Italian and you are going to sit down at the table with the candles and everything and your going to kiss her and she won't even know you've forgotten about it."
"Easy for you to say. She'll be here in 27 minutes!" Daniel exclaimed, pulling at his hair.
I rolled my sleeves up and rolled my shoulders, and clapped my hands together.
"Skip, you get in that kitchen and cook your girlfriend some cool Italian food and just try not to give her food-poisoning on your second date. He saluted and ran off to the kitchen so I turned to the boys. "We're going to help Skip have the best kick-ass date in all of mankind. You with me?" I shout and the the boys hoot and whistle.
Beau goes to pick out an outfit for Daniel and James helps Skip with the cooking. The twins and I set the table and light a bunch of candles before Luke had to go back and help James and Daniel with the food. Jai and I carried on setting the table. Two crystal white plates were set out across from each other with plain napkins and all the utensils. Jai lights a couple candles and dimmed the lights.
"Riley! We need some help in here?" I heard James shout. Of course.
I walk into the kitchen and see that the pan that was over the stove was on fire and smoke was spreading around the room.
"What the hell guys? What are you even trying to cook?" I laugh as I run over an take the pan from Luke's hand and open a window to get rid of the smoke.
"We're making pizza. It's the only think I understand in this whole book!" Daniel picked up the recipe book and flicked through the pages. Honestly, pizza was the only Italian food I know as well, along with spaghetti.
"Why the heck are you cooking pizza in a pan?" I cry shaking my my head at them and chucked the pan, with the 'pizza' in it, in the sink.
"It said on the box 'deep-pan pizza'!" Luke exclaimed, picking the empty frozen pizza box up. This boys are such idiots.
"You have a recipe book right in front of you! Why are you making frozen pizza?" I ask, flicking through the book for a spaghetti recipe. "Just, go get ready for your date. I'll take care of this."
Skip lets out a sigh of relief and puts his thumbs up before running to his bed room.
"Spaghetti spaghetti," I mumble, getting all the ingredients out, "Spaghetti and cheesssee."
"I'm pretty sure this goes in here?" I shrug, talking to myself, while trying to finger out of I put the chopped ginger straight into the tomato sauce or not. But in the end, they all go together anyway so what the hell.
Once I had finished the food, I heard a knock at the door.
"I'LL GET IT!" I yelled at the boys who were sat in the living room playing a car racing video game on the X Box.
They completely ignore me other than Skip murmuring a 'ermher', so I chuckled and walked over to the door.
I opened it up and saw a girl about my hight, with blue hair and red lips. She was wearing a black cocktail dress with very high heeled shoes.
"Oh hey. I'm Maxine, but call me Max." She smiled and stuck her hand out for me to shake it. As I did, Skip came running up from behind me.
"Max, I've made dinner for us. Come on in." He told her and I place my hands on my hips.
"And Riley had nothing to do with anything." I hold my hands up and smile sarcastically, before walking back to the boys. The game was paused so I decided to take Daniel's place.
I sat in his place and picked up his controller, un-paused it and realized Skip was last... I was amazing at any game so I'll win for him!
"Oh no you don't! You guys have to go. You're not staying in here while I'm with Max so just go to your rooms or something." Skip ordered, pulling Maxine into the dinning room with him.
"As long as I get ice cream, and cake, and donuts, I'm okay." I declare, standing up and making my way to the kitchen to find my deliciousnesses.
When I had found everything to keep me going through the night, I walked quietly back to my room.
Though, when I got there, my blankets, pillows and lamp gone from the room. I'm not planning to stay in my room with out something to cuddle up in.
I walked out of my room, still with the food in my hands, over to Beau's room. I just had a thought it would be him. I didn't bother knocking, I just stormed into it to find his sttuff gone too and no one in there.
So I decided to go to the next room, which was Luke's, and yet again, no one there. Then I tried, James' and still no one there.
I walk over to Jai's room and actually knock this time in case they're having their own strip-tease party or something. "Jai? Are you in there? Do you have my stuff?" I shout, waiting for an answer but instead I just heard shuffling and laughing, "Damit Jai, open this fricking door now or I'll break it down!"
Suddenly the door was opened by Jai and he chucked me over his shoulder in one swift movement, the boys following behind, over to the end of the hall where there was a big balcony.
"You do know I can walk, right?" I ask, but don't get a reply.
"It's quiet self-explanatory, you know?" I say again, but still, they only chuckle.
"Well, if you are nnot going to listen, I don't really want to be staring at your butt the whole ride."
"Liar." This time I do get an answer, but even though it could quite possibly be true, I snorted.
"He wishes." I retort, looking up at Luke who was the one to reply. I stuck my tongue out at him and he grabbed my cheek, like what your aunts and grandmas do when they haven't seen you for a long time (which is usually only about a week).
I squat his hands away and glare at him, holding my cheeks so he couldn't touch them again.
Jai opens the doors on the balcony and when I thought he was going to put me down, he carried on walking up some steps. Normal balconies don't have them, so I was surprised because I couldn't actually see where we were going.
"It's rude not to answer people." I rest my chin on my hand and my elbow on Jai's back.
Now I found James behind us and he started dooing kissy faces at me, so I just squinted my eyes at him before we rounded a corner and I nearly fell off his shoulder. When I nearly fell, I let out a shreak and grabbed on to Jai's top, making fists as I thought I was going to fall off the steps and 3 floors down to the cold, hard, dirty floor. But I just heard a chuckle as a restonce from Jai.
Maybe this was their plan. Maybe they're taking me to the roof to push me off. Maybe they're going to try and make it look like an accident by dropping me off, just so I won't hount them in my ghost life...
Maybe they're- I was cut off by Jai actually dropping me, and the ground came sooner than I imagined... And it was a lot softer. Though when I opened my eyes, I saw that I was still on the roof, and actually on one of the 4 mattresses pushed together with lots of blankets and pillows scattered around. There was a few fairy lights dangling around, lighting up the dark sky, along with some candles. It looked amazing.
"Wow. Is the word we were expecting..." Beau trailed off, scratching the back of his head with a smirk.
"Wow." I say with fake enthusiasm, causing the boys to roll their eyes. "But seriously, this is really cool... Do you do this a lot?"
"Only for special people." Luke smirked, jumping on the a 'bed' and laying down with his hands behind his head. The others followed suit and started going through the bag of food that I got, but they picked it up when I dropped it.
"Hey, that's mine!" I moan, laying back on the mattress.
Eventually we all fell asleep when Maxine and Skip joined us, so we were all curled up on 4 double mattresses...
