Chapter 7

Crap! Grace thought to herself. Why, why do I volunteer for everything? She uncovered herself, and slipped on a random pair of jeans and a shirt. She couldn't even see the road when she looked out the window. Grace walked to the kitchen and realized Cheryl and Katie were already up.

"Gracie, you're finally up, we need to get going." Cheryl said as she finished up her eggs.

"I didn't want to wake you up, so I just made you some muffins." Katie said as she handed Grace a bag off Blueberry muffins. When did she get up this morning? Grace wondered.

"Its fine, I'll deal. Okay girls let's go get the decorations, no wait, Starbucks first." Grace said as she picked up her purse and grabbed her keys off the nail in the wall Eric had put in for her.

"G, wait I need to go to the bathroom." Cheryl said.

"Go, but make it quick."

A few minutes later Cheryl came out all smiles.

"You must have had a very nice bathroom trip." Katie said from the front seat. She turned on her butt warmer.

"Why do you get the front seat?"

"You, apparently, had to go to the bathroom." Grace just put the key in and speeded to Starbucks. Once they had all the things needed Grace called Onstar, to get directions to the nearest Iparty.

Once the directions were taken care of, the girls were racing toward the nearest Starbucks drive through, and off to Iparty. When Grace pulled up to the menu of Starbucks drinks, she scanned it and asked the girls what they wanted.

"Hello, welcome to Starbuck, how may I help you?" A sleepy voice asked from the inside of Starbucks.

"Hi, um one venti Hot chocolate, hold the whip."

"Yep."

"One venti White hot chocolate hold the whip."

"Sure."

"One venti caramel macchiato hold the whip and dressing, and one iced chocolate peppermint mocha."

"Anything else?"

"Yes, two Asaigo bagels, three blueberry scones, four chocolate croissants, one cheese Danish, one chocolate mini sparkle doughnut, one chocolate old fashioned doughnut, and five marble pound cakes."

"Okay will that be all?"

"Yes." Who the heck is all this food for? Not me or Katie, we already ate, and even Gracie can't eat that much.

"Ok that would be one venti Hot chocolate, hold the wip, One venti White hot chocolate hold the wip, One venti caramel macchiato hold the wip and dressing, and one iced chocolate peppermint mocha, two Asaigo bagels, three blueberry scones, four chocolate croissants, one cheese Danish, one chocolate mini sparkle doughnut, one chocolate old fashioned doughnut, and five marble pound cakes?"

"That's all."

"Alright, your total comes to $37.98. First window please."

"Grace who is all the food for?" Katie asked as Grace put the car in park next to the first window.

"Taste testers, for the bureau. They get to pick the desserts, and then I have to go get them."

"Nice," Cheryl mustered from the back, "So who're you giving the extras to?"

"Whoever wants them." Grace finished as a short dark skinned girl walked up to the counter.

"Hello, that'll be $37.98, cash or credit?"

"Credit," Grace said as she whipped out her visa.

"Okay," She swiped the card and gave it back to Gracie. "Thank you have a good day!"

"Thanks." Gracie said as she sped away in her car. The girls blasted the radio all the way to iparty. After about ten minutes, Gracie was pulling into the giant parking lot for iparty. Katie was the first to get out. "Oh I'm so excited we get to pick all the decorations and everything! Should we get balloons too?"

"It's not the day of the party so well have to get the ones we want and fill 'em up ourselves."

"Oh, That's so much fun!" Cheryl jumped in.

"Alright, Katie, you and Cheryl can get the balloons, I'll go look for things that fall under a white silver theme." Gracie said, unenthusiastically. She clutched her coffee cup and stalked off.

"Alright, let's see. We need white and silver balloons." Katie said as she grabbed a bag of both.

"Gold couldn't hurt either!" Cheryl added, and reached for that pack.

"We could get balloons that said things like…"

"Like what? All they have is happy birthday and congratulations." Cheryl said.

"True."

…..

After all the choosing was over and the final strings had been tied up, the only thing left to do was wait for the talent show to start.
