"Lei guess what" my cousin Liv asks on FaceTime.

"What?"

"OKAY SO IM COMING TO NYC FOR A PRESS TOUR WITH THE CAST."

"YOU'RE JOKING" I scream.

"Promiseeee I'm not."

"When?" I ask her.

"This month but we're only going to be here for a week" she frowns through the screen.

"When this month though?"

"LITERALLY NEXT WEEK!"

"No way!"

"YES WAY" screaming through my iPad screen.

"WAIT I SHOULDN'T BE SCREAMING I COULD WAKE UP THE HOUSE"

"OH CRAP RIGHT" Liv covering her mouth.

"This sucks" I say while frowning.

"It really does" she replies and I see the frown on her face too.

"I saw you last month though" I tell her, seeing her face lighting up again.

"Yeah I miss you again and again and again" she says trying to make us laugh.

"I know, is there time for us to hang out though?" I ask her.

"Yes, of course! Everything we do is in the morning so around lunch till night time I can spend with you and everyone else! We're going to be on Good Morning America, Central Park, and a bunch of fun stuff with the cast!!"

"Andddd I can sleepover for a night!" she adds.

"Oh My God"

"Wait actually you should come too! It would be fun and you could bond with everyone Leiiii!!"

"How though?" I question.

"Don't worry about it, I'll talk to my manager."

"So I'd be spending every day with you then." I mention.

"Duh, actually you should go to lunch with us.  We could all go to your place on Sunday and you could cook your fancy lumpia"

"Oh and adobo" she adds.

"Only if you're helping" I tell her.

"I will. I, Olivia Isabel Rodrigo promise to help my cousin also known as my best friend and partner in crime LeiaRae Isabelle Valdez" raising her right hand.

"You better or else I'm not taking you to the Museum of Ice Cream and Artec House," I grin.

"I really won't. I've been wanting to go there since last year but our Christmas schedule was really busy."

"Yeah, but we will this time."

"Wait I forgot that I work 3 times a week." I mention.

"Oh, I forgot about that too."

"I'll talk to Robert, the manager remember him?"

"I do, tell him I said hi"

"Sure thing" I work at Supreme and the whole staff are basically my 2nd family.

They love going to my mom's restaurant to the point where she knows all of them.

"My friends really want to meet you so badly!" Liv says.

"Really??"

"They're so excited to meet you!"

"Julia, Soph, Dee, Frankie, Larry, and Matt followed me on Insta actually" I tell her.
