Here Beca is sitting in this huge auditorium trying to lie low surrounded by countless people. Everyone here to see their kids or family members receive their diplomas. Beca was happy to be here witnessing this, this was something she absolutely made sure she had time for. She looked around and laid eyes on the reason she was here. She stared at her and couldn't help but proudly smile while admiring her sitting there in her white graduation gown, looking like an angel.
"Stacie Conrad." The dean announced.
Beca stood up, clapping and whistling as loud as possible. She was by far the loudest person in that room currently, which says a lot of, considering how quiet she always is. Luckily for her, she was seated towards the side, so Stacie couldn't see her. She had wanted to keep her being here a surprise. Seeing Stacie get her diploma and walk off-stage made Beca feel like a proud partner, despite the two not being partners. Aside from being partners in crime, that is.
This has been five years in the making for Stacie. She had been able to accelerate her studies and get her master’s degree earlier than expected. Stacie had been accepted to the University of Miami during their senior year, whereas Beca had gotten a record contract during their senior year. Beca had moved to Cali as soon as she graduated, while Stacie moved down to Miami for school. Over the course of these five years the two had only seen one another during holidays since that was the only time their schedules allowed them to. They missed one another heavily during these years.
An hour later, after the ceremony ended, it was now time for the parents and family to meet up with the graduates. The Conrad's and Beca's father lead the way so Beca could remain hidden. Stacie's parents gave their daughter a hug and kiss as they congratulated her, telling her how proud they are. Beca's dad was next, and he hugged her while turning her back towards Beca who was now right behind the taller girl. He broke the embrace, telling her he was proud of her.
"Long last, the brainiac has graduated." Beca said.
Stacie quickly spun around, hearing her best friends voice. When she came face to face with Beca she couldn't help the smile that went from ear to ear.
"BECA!" Stacie shouted happily as she threw herself at the smaller girl.
Beca chuckled at the reaction as she threw her arms around Stacie tightly.
"I'm so damn proud of you, Stace. You finally did it, congratulations." Beca said softly.
"Thank you so much for always believing in me and giving the confidence to push through. Couldn't have done this without you by my side." Stacie said back.
Their parents recorded this whole interaction with smiles on their faces. They all knew how much these two missed each other.
Beca broke the embrace with a smile.
"When did you get here?" Stacie asked.
"Last night. I'm here for four days." She responded.
"Four days of us hanging out." Stacie said excitedly.
Beca nodded "Exactly."
They all took photos together before Beca removed her bandanna she had tied around her head.
She held it out "Do me a favor and put this on." Beca said.
Stacie looks at her confused "Why?"
Beca chuckles "Do you trust me?"
Stacie nodded "With my life."
Beca raised her eyebrows "Then put it on."
Stacie gives in and hands her diploma to her dad, while Beca ties the bandanna around her eyes. The Conrad's and her dad give her a questioning look, to which she just winks and smirks.
"Don't worry nothing kinky going on here." She jokes.
She leads everyone to the parking lot, and to say their parents were stunned would be an understatement. They pull out their phones and record this.
"Alright, so I got you a little graduation gift. This is for all your hard work and dedication, I know how hard this was on you and I just want you to know you deserve this. Also think of this as a thank you for being my friend all these years. We all know I'm a mess half the time." Beca chuckled.
"I wouldn't trade you for the world." Stacie smiled.
"Alright, when I remove this, keep your eyes closed till I say open." Beca says.
Receiving a nod from Stacie, she takes off the bandanna and stands to her side.
"And open." Beca says.
Stacie opens her eyes and is instantly speechless. Her jaw drops as well as her phone from being speechless. Beca chuckles and picks up her phone.
"You can't be serious." Stacie says as she looks towards Beca.
Beca smirks and tosses her the keys "Oh, but I am babe." Beca says with a wink.
Stacie catches the keys still stunned.
"I know how much you love mine, so I got you one as well." Beca says.
Ever since Beca has gotten her Lamborghini Aventador, Stacie had fallen in love with that car. She always gushed over it and Beca figured why not get Stacie one as a gift.
"I got dark red because I know you love dark red cars." Beca said.
Stacie didn't know what to say to show how happy or how much she loved this gift. So she did the only thing she can think of that'll get her point across. She grabbed Beca by the face and gave her a passionate kiss, catching everyone by surprise.
She pulled back and laughed at everyone's stunned expression "Oh don't be so shocked, it's me and Beca what'd you expect?"
"Definitely not that. But if that's the thanks I'll always get them, I'll buy you anything you want." Beca says.
Stacie held her hand "Come on I want to break this bad boy in."
