#1 – The Gift
"So, were you surprised?"
Shannon Michaels looked up at her friend, Terri Hill. The tall redhead stood with her back to the door, which she had just closed behind the last guest. She was wearing a short, halter-top style dress, and that same mischievous smile that Shannon knew all too well.
"I'll say I was," Shannon told her, as Terri came to sit next to her on the couch. "I was supposed to be coming over for a quiet dinner with my best friend. Instead, I find a full-blown party with more than twenty people."
"Hey," Terri grinned, putting her hand on her shoulder, "would I have been a real best friend if I'd let your twenty-fifth birthday go by without a surprise party."
Shannon smiled at her, shaking her head. "I guess not," she admitted, with a sigh. She had met Terri in her junior year of college, and they had been friends ever since. They knew everything about each other, including a couple of secrets that no one else knew.
