I’m officially 16! Yey me!!!!!!!! As I looked in the mirror after I woke up, nothing really changed. It’s just that my hair is longer. It was a bright sunny day outside and I knew nothing could go wrong during my special day. True enough, mom and dad greeted me as soon as I went down the stairs for breakfast. Mom prepared my favorite breakfast, pancakes and bacon. Hehe!
Dad told me he had a surprise for me when I get home from school. I could hardly contain my excitement, I immediately hugged him tight. Nothing special happened in school, except that during lunch the girl bought me a small cake with the number candles 1 and 6 on it. It was touching and nice. I told the girl our diner would be scheduled for tomorrow instead since this night belongs to my parents. They totally agreed and talked about what to wear. After school, I went to the cafe to have my favorite coffee jelly as a treat for myself, since I have had one in weeks.
To my surprise, Ella got to me there first and told me she had a surprise. And sure enough I was surprised what she had prepared for me. Allan came out holding a small cake with 3 candles in it and the whole cafe sang happy birthday. I felt like fainting from joy. Then the bar tender gave me a tall cup of my coffee jelly – best gift yet, little did I know there was more. After everything got settled down, Ella and Lander sat on a separate table while Allan shared a table with me. We got to talk about Ella’s plans for the surprise which she told Allan days before.
So, that’s why she has been fishy lately more than the usual. Allan then explained to me why there are three candles on the cake instead of the numbers 16. He said each candle represented a word (do I smell a proposal?). He told me those words are I, LIKE, YOU. Again, I felt like fainting. After a few seconds of staring at him, I finally said: “same here”. From the looks of him, I thought he was about to faint too, but instead he just smiled and blushed, so did I. Like OMG, this is the best sweet sixteen in the world or what?! He then asked me out where we could spend time alone, so I canceled my gym time and went with him.
After having pizza with Allan, he brought me home. When I got there, dad’s surprise was stationed at the living room, it was a huge box. So there goes my tablet and my car. What could it be then? As mom and dad looked at me while I was opening the box, I was shocked. Dad actually bought me a cross trainer – an elliptical trainer, and the newest model out in the market too! This is amazing! Now I’ll never to go the gym and workout, instead Ella and I can do it at home!! I gave them both the tightest huge and the hardest kiss on the cheek I ever gave. I can’t wait to try this thing tomorrow.
