“Christy! I’ve missed you so much. Where is Rihanna?” I screamed giving Christy a hug. “O.M.G! Its been months Nancy, I’ve missed you! Happy birthday!” said Christy as she embraced me and gave me a gift bag, “we have a lot to talk about…” “Nancy, its been so long! Happy birthday!” said Rihanna, as she jumped on me.
