The cool smell of chocolate and vanilla were the first things that hit me when we walked inside. Jakes little sister Mary ran ahead of me to take her place in line. She had curly brown hair that cascaded down her shoulders. Her eyes were startling blue. You couldn’t miss them. They were so much lighter than her brothers. Like the clear oceans in Hawaii. She was jumping up and down in excitement. I laughed at her innocence. I ordered the birthday cake remix which is cake batter ice cream topped
with hot fudge and brownies. Yummy! Mary tried the mine and ended up getting the same. Jake got cake batter with hot fudge and despite the fact that Alex was upset at me and didn’t even want to be there she ordered cake batter milkshake. We talked and laughed while we ate. Well mostly Mary talked. She would tell us all the drama that happened with her at school. It was ridiculous the things that happened to a twelve year old in sixth grade. Before I knew it, it was already ten. “Well I should probably get going.” I said standing up. “Awww!” Mary complained. I smiled and then said, “Hey if your brother wants to he can bring you by the beach and we can hang out.” Mary smiled and gave me a hug. I said goodbye as Alex walked me to my car. “Hey can you give me a ride? I don’t feel like calling my parents to come pick me up.” She rolled her eyes at the thought of it. “Sure get in.” AS we started driving I asked her, “So was it as bad as you thought?” She smiled and said, “The movie or being the third wheel on your date?” I glared at her and she laughed. “I’m kidding. It wasn’t bad at all. You would think popular boy wouldn’t be caught dead with his twelve year old sister.” I smiled and said, “I know. Hey maybe he isn’t as bad as you say. In fact I am determined to show you he’s not. By the end of this summer I am going to prove you wrong. I can promise you by the end of this summer you will be friends with him.” She rolled her eyes at me, but I was serious, and trust me I don’t break promises. You can count on it.
