A Special Day
A Special Day Beep beep beep… The sound of my alarm clock went off. It was seven o’clock In the morning. I was still very sleepy. I didn’t want to wake up yet and was just rolling around in bed. I couldn’t go back to sleep now that I’m awake. I was laying in bed planning out my day. Today is a very special day for me and I want everything to be perfect. Today is my sweet 16 Birthday. I’m happy but worry at the same time. I wanted to go to school dress in the prettiest outfit and have the nicest hair-do. I quickly got out of bed and rushed to the bathroom. Someone was In there already.
I engaged on the door to hurry them up. It was my snotty older sister, who thinks she Is so pretty and so popular in high school. She always takes forever in the washroom. It’s one of the reasons why I have to get up so early just to get to the bathroom before her. Just my luck for the start of the day. My sister has always been mean to me; she always picks on me and makes fun of me especially in front of her senior friends. Ooh I hate her so much. “Hurry up! ” I yelled. Finally the door opened and my sister walked out. She gave me the deletes look and rolled her eyes at me as she walked away.
I don’t let her gets to me any more, not today, not on my birthday. I quickly got in the shower and get ready for a perfect day today. When I went downstairs to go to school with my sister, she had already driven off without me. I was really mad, she was the reason why I’m a little bit late and now she has the nerve to leave without me. So I had to take the bus to school. I don’t Like where this Is heading off. “But that’s okay, once I get to school all my friends will shower me with lots and lots of presents”, I tried to assured myself. When I got to school, I was hoping that my friends would surprise me with balloons and presents.
But when I see them, it looked like they have forgotten about my birthday today. I pretended to ask them questions and hinted them that it was my birthday. But they didn’t seem Like they were getting it. It was making me mad. “How can my best friends forget about their own best friend’s birthday? ” I asked myself. This really hurt. I didn’t want to say anything and didn’t want them to see the tears In my eyes. I walked away quietly to my class. The whole day was ruined for me. First it was my sister now it’s my friends. “What’s next, what could possibly go wrong now? ” I said to myself. I was feeling bum out throughout my classes.
I didn’t even talk at lunch. I was just sitting there staring at my food while all my friends were talking and laughing. They didn’t even bother to ask me what was wrong. ” What horrible nasty friends I have? ” “Aren’t the luckiest girl In the whole wide world? ” I said sarcastically to myself. I went home right after school, hoping that my mom and dad would make my day a little bit better. As I walked in the door, I was hoping my mom would say happy birthday. But she didn’t say anything either. Awe… What horrible day. Not like anything I had In mind for today. Today was supposed to be perfect. My friends were elaborate.
My family was supposed to take my out to dinner and have the whole restaurant sing happy birthday to me. None of these things have happen and now the day is almost over. Here I am all by myself in my room doing homework on my sweet 16 birthday. Suddenly the phone rang and my friend Katie asked me if I could over to return a shirt that I had borrowed. I told her that it was late and asked if I can give it to her later. But she insists that I should return it right away. “Fine”, I said. “I’ll come over right away. ” She told me not to ring the doorbell and to walk right in so I won’t wake NY body up.
I went downstairs and only my mom was home. I was surprised and asked her where was my dad and my sister. “They went out to get something”, she said. So then my mom gave me a ride to Skate’s house to return her shirt. I was quiet the whole time in the car. When we got there the lights were out. So I Just walked right in. Suddenly the light came on and all my friends and family Jumped out and screamed surprise. I was so happy, even my evil sister. I didn’t know what to say, I was Just so happy and still very surprised. I told them that I thought everyone had forgotten about my birthday.
Skate’s whole living room was decorated with banners that said happy sweet 16, colorful ribbons, and lots and lots of balloons. Over by the table were full of presents mounted on each others. AY so I had a huge birthday cake with a picture of me on the cake. Everybody sang happy birthday to me and I blew out the candles on my cake. We ate and partied all night long. As the night almost ended, my sister came over and wishes me a happy birthday and said that she was sorry for being mean to me for all these years and hope that we can be friends from now on. So I guessed today was perfect after all.
