“Honey can you come here for a quick second?”
I had been strolling by the living room, heading back to the play room when mom called me over to the couch. I nodded and approached Mom, Dad and Aunt Punchy. They all had big smiles on their faces, which meant most likely I wasn’t in trouble. Funny. Me in trouble, I never did anything to get in trouble, so I wasn’t exactly sure why I was so worried about that.
“We need to start planning for your birthday, but you still haven’t told us what you want to do?”
This was true, even I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and anytime someone would ask, I just drew a huge blank. Staring at them with this totally confused look on my face.
“Love? You still with us?”
“Uh ya! I just don’t know…”
“You know, I got these great tickets for Sunny’s daughter and a few of her friends for a Jammy Bierberry concert, I bet I could pull a few strings and get a couple more. Its gonna be a really small setting at the new strawberry Creme Brulee in Briocheport. What do you think about that?”
My eyes glazed over again, but this time it was from excitement. I almost exploded right there on the spot.
“NO WAY!?! Jammy Bierberry!! NO way!!! and you can get ME in! NO WAY!!!”
Wah I was so excited!! This was going to be the best birthday ever!!
“I might even be able to get you a cake and get everyone to sing happy birthday, even Jammy.
Well it was official, I wasn’t going to live to see my birthday because I was about to melt into the floor like huge puddle.
The night of the party came and I was sitting in awe in my chair. No way this was actually happening I kept thinking to myself. Shamrock kept laughing at me and waving his hand in front of my eyes.
“Sugearth to Olivine, Olivine come in!”
“Funny Bro…real funny.”
Then it was time. The lights got even dimmer and then there he was!! Right on stage! I just couldn’t believe it!! Ahhhhh! I was literally bursting at the seams! Jammy Bierberry!!!!!!!!
I was enjoying every Bierberry second of it, but my brother didn’t seem to be as interested. I didn’t care though. I was screaming and girls were crying and it was an amazing experience that I hoped I would not soon forget!
“Jammy I love you!!!”
After the concert, just as Aunti Punchy had promised, they brought out a cake with candles a blaze all for me. My face was aching from smiling so much. I was having such a good time, I even forgot about all the strangers that were before me. This was like coolest birthday ever! Everyone including Jammy sang me happy birthday, I was the luckiest girl in the world.
I made my wish and blew out those candles. Eeeeeee!!
I had never in my life experienced a night quite like that one. The atmosphere was electric and everything felt so alive!
After I had finished my cake, I snuck into the back room for a little alone time. There was window near the back wall and from it you could see the whole city. All the beautiful lights and bustling going on below. It was truly magical.
That was the night I fell in love with Briocheport.
Special thanks to Alyssum Candy for the Bierberry idea! <3333
