1. No Way!
I wake up sweetly by my mum softly singing Happy Birthday with my breakfast already made. "Aw mum, thanks I love you!" I said in my sleepy morning voice. "It's your 19th birthday!" she exclaimed seeming more excited than me. "I know, but I don't want you to spend much on me today" I knew she would "Oh, come on! You know me, it's not about the money Brooke, it's about you." she said sweetly. I loved my mum she had always been there for me changing my diapers when I was younger and now helping me with boys. You see my my mum has always tried to get me involved with dating, but I'm waiting for that special someone. My mum held out my breakfast "Try it, it's a new recipe" mum always loved cooking and I loved trying her meals. I took a bite, it sent glorious flavors bursting in my mouth. I took more and more bites and then I realized it was all gone. "Good huh?" my mum questioned "Yes! I could eat that everyday!" I replied "Okay, go get ready for the day, your dad and I have some surprises for you!" she said leaving the room with my dirty plate. I went inside my closet not know ing what to wear, and then I saw it my favorite dress I haven't worn it in forever. It was a dark blue dress with a floral pattern on top. "Perfect!" I thought to myself. I quickly got changed putting on a little makeup and sunblock on. When I came out of my room I saw my mum, dad and Spencer sitting on the couch in the living room. "Spencer?!" I said maybe a bit to loud. He looked up from the TV that was playing last night's football game. "Brooke! You look lovely, Happy Birthday!" he said. Spencer was my best friend he always had been ever since he stood up to a bully for me in first grade. "I didn't know you were coming!" I said exclaimed "Yeah, your parents invited me over to celebrate your 19th birthday!" he said hugging me. "So wanna open presents?" my dad asked sitting on the couch, I plopped down next to him and gave him a big hug. "Yup!" I answered. Spencer gave me his present first, he had a big grin on his face as he handed the present to me. As soon as I opened it I let out a huge gasp, it was a beautiful necklace it must have cost a fortune, I put it on right away it matched perfectly with my dress. "Oh my! Thank yoyu so much, you are the best friend ever!" I shouted. "This is from your brother" my dad said handing me a card. I quickly tore off the envelope it said "I am really sorry I couldn't make it back in time for your birthday sis, I would love to see your expression opening all the presents friends and family gave you. Another mission came up and I probably won't be back until next year, maybe I will see you on your birthday then! It has felt like forever since I left, I miss hearing you talk about your friends. I love you sis. Hopefully time will pass by quicker so I can see you. Love Ethan" As I read the note I felt tears escape my eyes, It has been a few years since I had seen my older brother. Ethan has been fighting for our country, lots of people had died from that I just don't want my older brother to get hurt. I quickly gathered myself as everyone was staring at me making sure I was okay. "Maybe this will cheer you up! It's from your dad and I." She said holding a rather small gift bag. I looked inside it at first it looked like a piece of paper... "No way! One direction concert tickets?! And backstage passes, Hell yeah it will cheer me up!" I was so thrilled one direction was my favorite band, I had known them since they first started because I always watch X-Factor. I checked the date that they were playing and it was tomorrow. I was so excited, I couldn't wait what other joys today would bring.
