My Best Birthday Ever
I woke up feeling very, excited on my tenth birthday as I had promised to treat my friends to an ice cream in the school canteen. I gulped down my breakfast and cycled as fast as I could to school. All my friends were waiting at the school entrance, with a big birthday card for me. I returned home from school excited about the fun I had had but feeling sad that there was no party to look forward to in the evening.
The house was dark when I rang the bell after returning from tuition class. Just as I was wondering why nobody was home on my special day, the door opened and all the lights came on and twenty of my friends shouted our surprise!!’
I could not contain my excitement and hugged my mother and father for arranging this surprise party for me. There was more in store! All my friends had been invited for a sleepover which was to be followed by a movie at the theatres the next morning. My mother had made my favourite food for all of us. After I opened all my gifts, we played board games all evening. After a long session of pillow fights and listening to ghost stories we all fell asleep past midnight.
My friends left for home, the next afternoon, after the movie. I returned home thankful to my parents for giving me the best birthday ever!
