"Ding Dong." I ran to the door and opened it. "Happy Birthday Nikki." Issy my best friend said.
"Thanks," I said. I held my hand up to shake hands She grabbed my hand. BUZZ. She quickly took her hand away from mine.
"Owww!" she said.
"My bad," I said. She looked at my hand. There was a silver thing on it. A buzzer. if you would know me well you would know. I love pranks and sometimes I can't control myself.
"Really," Issy said. " Don't worry there's more where that came from," I said.
"Is everything ready?" Our Mom's said.
"Yep," we said.
"Oh wait," Issy said. before we leave here. She handed me an envelope. I tore it open. It said, "Love you like a sister." I opened the card and $30 fell out.
" I was looking for that," I said.
"Yea, yeah. It's for the American Girl Doll Store," Issy said.
"Thanks," I said and slipped it into my jacket pocket.
When we got to my Aunt's apartment, we took our suitcases out of the trunk.
"Issy, let me take your suitcase," I said.
"Alright," she said. I had a smile on my face. I reached into my pocket and took out the $30. I stuffed it back into my pocket. This time I took out the thing I was looking for. "Fake vomit." I put it on Issy's bag. It was shiny and gooey and looked exactly like fake vomit.
"Oh," I said. "I think I'm going to be sick." Issy looked around and when she saw the fake vomit she flipped, "OMG OMG THAT'S DISGUSTING"
"Got you good," I said.
"What?" she said. "I dunno." My mom got it for me. I got to admit she said, "but you are getting good at pranks."
"Thanks." She gave me back my vomit. I put it back in my pocket and started rolling my suitcase. Issy was following behind. Our moms were still getting stuff out of the trunk. Ding Dong.
Aunty Eva opened the door, "Hello," she said. I ran up to hug her.
"Happy Birthday," she said.
"Hi," Issy said. I'm so excited to see all of you by this time. Our moms were chatterboxing away. When we settled in, Aunty Eva brought out grapes and pasta and our favorite. When it ws time to go, Issy and I both brought our American girl Dolls with a cute outfit on them. We put them in the car, put on our seatbelts and left. We passed a lot of graffiti and buildings.
"We are here," my mom said.
"Yaa, " we said.
We spent one hour there. We looked at clothes, accessories and in the end we both got Makena. "We've been waiting here since we saw her commercial. We went to eat something. Now it was night and it was time for the subway. We were so happy but not knowing who the subway disaster was.
"Alright," my mom said.
"Let's go!" My mom stated us. We went down the stairs into the subway. There we saw a man playing beautiful music. We each gave him a dollar Then we got our tickets and started waiting.
"Bump, bump, bump, bump, bump,bump," It started coming. We watched it go quickly and then it stopped. Then I got an idea.
"Issy, can I see your bracelet," I asked.
"Sure" Issy said. She took it off and handed it to me I took it. We all got on the subway. I quickly threw here bracelet out of the subway.
"No! That's my favorite bracelet." She quickly ran out. I followed her. "NO!" Our mom's said. I grabbed the bracelet , turned around, and the doors closed and the subway quickly started moving again The subway was white and blue. There were benches outside to wait and a bright light. We both froze and our eyes locked on each other. Our hearts were thumping. We started panicking. We didn't know what to do or say. We stood there for what seemed like a long time as we heard the subway click further down the track. then I held up the bracelet. "I found it." I said in a high voice. She snatched it from me.
"What are we going to do?' Issy asked.
"We should wait on the bench. They'll come back."
"Ok," she said. One hour past, no one came. We were hungry, cold and scared.
"Ok," I said in a soft voice."So...maybe they aren't coming."
"Um, I'm hungry," I said.
"Me too," Issy said.
"Wait," I said I have the thirty dollars you gave me. We could buy something to eat."
"Okay," Issy said.
We walked up the stairs and onto the street. Taxis were still driving and people were still walking. We saw a man selling hotdogs. We went up. Each hot dog was two dollars. We bought two. We gave the man four dollars. He gave us our hotdogs.
"Thank you," I said.
"Your are welcome," he said. We found a bench and ate our hot dogs. We left half, just in case we got hungry again. We had twenty six dollars life. We needed to spend it wisely. Then we came across a man selling lights They were 3 and it was dark so we bought one and we had 23 more dollars left.
Later on when we were walking Issy started yelling, " This would have never happened if you wouldn't have thrown my bracelet!"
"Hey," I said. "This isn't the time to blame people."
"Well maybe it is, " she said.
"Fine if you are going to argue then I 'll find my mom by myself."
I said, "fine.". We walked in different directions. Then I noticed that I had the hot dogs, the light and the money and Issy just had herself. I had walked pretty far and I had been walking straight, so I ran once I saw her.
"Issy," I said. She turned around. "I'm sorry," I said.
"Its okay," she said. "I'm sorry too."
"Now, let's go back to the subway," I said.
"Ok," she said.
When we were walking back I heard something familiar. It sounded like our mom's and American Girl Doll bags. I ran up Issy followed behind. "MOM!" I shouted and ran up and hugged her. Issy ran up and hugged her. Issy ran up to hug her mom too. We were worried sick. My mom said we looked everywhere.
"How did you survive?" My mom joked. I put my birthday money in my pocket and we bought food and light.
"If I got lost in a subway like you girls, I have never survived."
"Well let's get back to Aunty Eva's apartment," my mom said. We all got in our car and buckled our seat belts. While we were driving, me and Issy ate our hotdogs. When we got there we went up the stairs and rang her doorbell. She opened the door. When we were settled, we told her everything.
"Oh, my gosh!" she said. "It sounds like you two need something warm. We both got our fluffy Pj's on and sat on Aunty Eva's couch.
Aunty Eva came out with hot cocoa with a ton of marshmallows. "Yum." We watched TV for a bit then we all went to bed and right before I closed my eyes, I promised never to do a prank again, but you all know I can't do that.
