current mood: nervous
Pacey and I hopped into Doug's slightly dented squad car about five minutes after he arrived to stay the night. I was surprised he hadn't brought it back before now, but I also knew he hadn't been home. I wasn't sure what he did in the past twelve hours, but I didn't feel the need to ask. It was about six o'clock, almost time for the surprise party I had planned. We arrived at the arena and I casually asked him to get some ice to bring to the party. He gave me a funny look, but got into the car and headed to the store. That should give me fifteen minutes to get the party set up. As far as I knew I had invited everyone so I hoped people would show up.
Lights were strung across the dock, shining brilliantly in the ever-darkening sky. The crickets were starting to hum in the background. I walked over to the table I had set up earlier covered with a blue tablecloth, his favorite color. I started to arrange the food I had brought over earler onto the table. Doug walked up, handed me some cupcakes and told me he was sorry, but he couldn't attend. I was a little disappointed, I had planned on having a bigger party for Pacey, but I didn't feel comfortable inviting people he didn't know. I had considered posting flyers, but decided against it. I looked at my watch, it was a few minutes past six. I turned on the mix cd that Joey had suggested for the party since my taste in music was outdated. I enjoyed 80's music, but apparantly that wasn't a popular opinion.
I started to fidget. I hope Jen and Joey get here soon, I thought. I wasn't sure how Joey would react to Jen being at the party, they had never gotten along, but maybe things between them would be different now. I highly doubted that would actually happen, but I held out hope. Hopefully Pacey wouldn't show up before everyone else did, that would take the surprise out of the event.
