"Tay!" I squealed when I opened the door an saw Taylor standing there.
"Hey Anna! Happy birthday!" He said hugging me. I heard someone clear their throat and instantly got butterflies. Is Carter here? Taylor moved out of the way and I saw Matt, Dillon, Aaron, and Sammy standing there. He's not here. I quickly tried to push that out of my mind as I rushed to them
"You guys!" I shouted going in for a group hug.
"Happy birthday!" They shouted in unison. I was so happy but Carter was still wandering around in the back of my mind. Where is he? I didn't expect any of the guys to come, but now that they're all here, where's Carter?
"What's all this noise?" Hannah groaned coming beside me. I turned to look at her and she was standing there half asleep in her pajamas. I heard Taylor laugh beside me and her eyes went wide causing the rest of the guys to laugh.
"What are you guys doing here?" She asked as she tried to stifle a yawn.
"Annabelle's birthday" Aaron said in a duh tone. I watched as her eyes widened, again, in confusion.
"I'm so sorry I forgot!" She said smacking her forehead. "I'll go wake up Alisha and get dressed" she said rushing inside. I heard Taylor chuckle yet again and turned to give him a questioning look.
"What?" He asked shrugging his shoulders. I just shook my head with a small smirk and motioned for them to follow me inside.
"So...." I trailed off. I wanted ask about Carter but I didn't want to make it awkward. "How was your fli-" I got cut off by Alisha walking down stairs
"Oh! Hey guys! What are you doing here?" She asked looking around.
"We came to see 5 out of 6 of our favorite girls" Matt said getting up to hug her. I couldn't help but sigh. I want a relationship like that. I want someone I can hug and cuddle. Is that too much to-.
"Where's Carter?" Alisha asked interrupting my thoughts and voicing the question I wanted to ask.
"He... Couldn't come" Aaron said quietly. I could feel the tension in the room.
"Couldn't or didn't want to?" I asked, afraid to hear the answer.
"He... Didn't want to" Sammy answered awkwardly scratching the back of his neck.
"Oh..." I said trying to fill the silence.
"Hey is everyone ready?" Hannah asked breaking the silence and grabbing her purse. There was a chorus of yes's and yeah's as we headed towards the door.
"Alright. Alisha, Matt, and Sammy, you go get Kayleigh" Hannah said taking charge.
"Annabelle, Aaron, Tay, Dillon, and I will go get Kat" she said quickly.
"Alright. We'll meet you there" Alisha said.
"Meet where?" I asked curiously.
"It's a secret" Aaron said draping his arm across my shoulder. I stuck my tongue out at him trying to enjoy the moment with these people who had become my family.
"Carter is gonna be pissed" I told Alisha as we walked towards Kayleigh's house.
"I know, Kat and I didn't want to do it but, it'll make her happy" she sighed swinging our hands back and forth. (My hands, your hands, tied up like two ships <3 I love that song)
"Let's just hope Carter doesn't find out about this" I said looking at her. She's so beautiful.
"what?" She asked looking back.
"You're gorgeous" I stated knowing I was telling the truth.
"Thanks"she said looking down. I was about to kiss her when Sammy started making gagging noises.
"Sorry" I mumbled shooting him a glare.
Where do you think they're going? What (or who) do you think the surprise is?

Maybe the one with Skylynn.
