It was Elsa's birthday; she was going to turn 18. A few months ago she asked me and the rest of our girlfriends to take care of her party; she wanted us to surprise her with the theme, location, and pretty much everything that makes up a birthday party.

Us girls decided to bring in the guys, so they wouldn't feel left out. Her boyfriend, Noah, and I didn't talk to each other. We used to date way before he ever went out with Elsa; all I can say is that he didn't love me as much as I loved him, and I put up with stuff I shouldn't have. It had been at least 3 years since we stopped talking. Anyway, that was an irrelevant factor in organizing Elsa's party, since we all loved her, and had fun planning it for her. We all agreed on her party taking place on a rooftop at night, starting at 8:00 pm.

One of Elsa's biggest passions was her love for dance, so we decided it would be a cute idea to surprise her with a dance, choreographed by ourselves. Noah wasn't a part of this surprise since we thought it would be best for him to be with her, just in case she wanted to join us while we danced. Jacob partnered with me; Louis partnered with Angie; Josh partnered with Sarah, Kendal partnered with Emma, and Aiden partnered with Catherine.

On the day of her birthday, we all went to her house and decided to get ready there. We all got there at 4:00 pm and started changing as soon as we got there.

For the party, I decided to wear a mesh pastel pink t-shirt dress. It had tiny little flowers all the way on the lower left corner, and it was fitted from the waist. Under it, I wore a light pink spaghetti strapped leotard. I paired it up with pink pastel strapped high heels. I was the first girl ready since I was the only one from the group that didn't bother to do my make up, as always. All I applied was a nude lipstick with an orange tone because it's what looks best with my fair skin.

I went to go find Elsa, to help her get ready. I walked in and she was already in her nicely fitted sparkly tan dress that went up to her knees. Her legs looked incredible, and so did she. She was already done with her make-up, except for her eyebrows. I decided to help her finish.

While doing her eyebrows, I began talking to her, asking her how she felt about the party. She began to say she was stressed. I asked her multiple times about what, but the more I asked the angrier she got. She asked me to just go away, so I just did; I figured she just needed some space, I didn't take it personally.

I walked out of her room and went to go check on the guys. Everyone was there except Noah; I asked where he was and Jacob said he went to go check on Elsa. I started heading back to the girls to check if they were done getting ready, but then I noticed Elsa's high heels on the hallway table, so I decided to quickly take them to her. I was about to turn onto the hallway where her room was at when Noah bumped into me. I backed up and noticed that he was crying. I asked him,
"Oh my god, are you okay? Whats wrong?"
"I don't understand why Elsa is being so rude!"
I stared at him, not knowing what to say because I myself didn't understand.
We stood there for about a minute, and then he looked down to me, and just stared back.
He grabbed my arm lightly, and asked me to follow him into a room.
We entered, and he closed the door behind him.
It was silent for quite a while, until he said,
"Maddy, I'm so sorry for ignoring you all these years. I'm sorry for never trying to talk to you again. I'm .. sorry"
I couldn't say anything. My stomach became a huge knot and I just.. I couldn't stop staring at him.
"Maddy, I can't stop thinking about you. You make it so hard to keep my mind off of you. You look so beautiful every day, and I wish I could tell you every day."
"Noah, don't do this. Not today, not right now. I was just trying to be a good person, I didn't mean for it to turn into this. Please. Just go with Esla."
"I want to be right here". He grabbed both my hands, "I want you to tell me that you want to be with me because I can't stand another day without talking to you. I want you, I miss you."
"Now?! Until now you decide to have feelings for me?" I yanked my hands away from his. "Noah, I loved you unconditionally for a whole year! I did nothing but cry for you after you decided you were done with me! You can't do this now. I'm fine. I'm happy."
"I've caught you staring at me Maddy, I'm not an idiot. I'm sorry I was an asshole with you. I regret treating you the way I did, every day. Every time I see you I think of all the hurt I put you through, and I hate myself for it. But Maddy I'm begging you... please give me another chance. Please". He got on his knees and grabbed my hands again. "Please Maddy. Let's run away."

I began to cry. I was tempted to say yes. I really was, but Elsa... I couldn't do that to her. I found myself crying while he was holding my hands, still on his knees. I didn't say anything. I couldn't believe it. I still had feelings for him, and there was no way I would be able to ignore them.
He stood up, grabbed my face, and kissed me.
I couldn't pull away. I got caught up in how soft his lips were, and how amazing they were at kissing mine. He pushed me against the door and began kissing me harder. I grabbed his neck and hair, letting him know that I liked what he was doing. He put his hands on my waist, and then lifted me up so that I could wrap my legs around him. He stopped kissing me and started walking to the bed, but it was like in those few seconds he stopped kissing me he realized what we were doing was wrong. He put me down and apologized for getting me into such a huge mess. I asked him what was wrong, but all he said was that I had to act like nothing happened.
"Act like nothing happened?"
"Yes. I promise to ignore my feelings for you okay, I need you to do the same."
"Noah... I thought.. what happened to running away?"
"... I have to go check on Elsa, I'll see you once we all start heading out."

That was the last thing he said before I could say anything. He walked out and left me standing there, alone.
