"Haaaaaappy biiiiiirthday toooooooooo youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu~"

 

 

The cake is flavored Strawberry. I didn't like it.

 

 

"Start blowing those candles because i'm hungry!"

"Shut up, it's not your cake Jeremy! Take your time, lovely. Make a good wish."

 

But I loved it. It's because they bought it for me.

 

 

As I tightly put my hands together and nervously closed my eyes to make a wish, I actually did not. Instead, I feel them all around me. I become conscious at stuff like this--being surrounded, looked at, the center of attention for a few seconds. It's making me uncomfortable so instead of thinking, I just focused on feeling them all behind my sight. There were some casual breathings, short words passed on one another about how 'serious' I am to whatever I was wishing, and I fought the urge to smile.

 

 

 

 

"I hope she could stay safe always."

 

 

 

 

At first, I heard a voice, a voice I never really expected. And then, I realized that the owner of the voice is praying, wishing something for me. And then...

 

 

I've realized that he's actually hoping for my safety. It's a few words that sent a large amount of effect in my whole body and soul.

 

 

 

My heart beats faster, those cliche butterflies in the stomach, maybe I'm also blushing subtly, and I almost wanted to do an exaggerated interpretative dance because of what I am feeling right now. Also, there are fireworks in my body. Bloody good fireworks exploding inside. 

 

 

 

And then I gave a wide, WIDE smile. 








They thought I've just finished my wish when I opened my eyes.

 

 

 

 

"Yaaaaaaaaaaay happy birthday! Eating tiiiiiime!" They all chorused, and started making a decorationless party of their own.

 

 

 

 

 

From there, I have made two wishes for my birthday.

 

 

 

 

 

Number one, I wish this day will never end.

 

 

 

 

And number two, I wish he stopped being humble and ate a piece of cake.
