“I love you to City Girl” Squib smiled,

“I know it isn’t quite your birthday yet, but I want to give you

“Where are we going?” Squib asked.
“You’ll see” Cody answered simply.
“Shhh” Cody warned.
“Where are we going?” Squib asked again.
Cody answered finally, kicking open the gym door and removing her hands from Squibs eyes.
“Happy Birthday Squib”
Adena, Cameron, Sebastian and Meagan yelled as loud as possible without getting caught.
They all lay in a
