7. Chpt 6: Isabella's birthday
Today was my birthday. I woke up and looked at the time. Omg it was half past seven I needed to be at school at eight. I can't be late on my birthday! I quickly did my usual morning routine then ran down stairs." happy birthday." my aunt said. I gave her and my uncle a hug and grabbed my bag, I was to late to ride my skateboard. I was about to head out the door when my aunt asked " aren't you going to open you cards and presents?"
" I can't right now I'm late but I'll take my cards and open them at lunch." I quickly replied.
" Ok sweetie." she replied. So I grabbed my cards and put them in my bag and ran out the door to the university. When I got there it was 7:50,it wasn't that far from where I live and I was a fast runner. I opened my locker and put my bag in. I started opening my cards in my locker. After seeing who it was from Peter, Gwen, Harry and Flash came up to me. Gwen gave me a hug and said " happy birthday." she handed me a card as do Flash and Harry. I opened their cards they gave me and gave them a hug. You probably think how they know when my birthday is, well when we first met,which was a month ago, I told them about me and I told them when my birthday is as well as them telling me theirs. Peter was the last person to give me a card. I opened Peters last and I found money in it. I thanked Peter and gave him a hug. Then the bell went. we headed to our classes. Flash went to his class and the four of us went to our class.
At the end of school Gwen asked me " so what are you doing for your birthday?"
" To be honest I don't know. I was just going to celebrate it with you guys and my aunt and uncle." I replied.
" Well what time do you want us to be there for?"
" Whenever your ready." After talking about what I was doing for my birthday we went to our homes to get ready. Whilst I was walking with Peter to our homes he gave me a little present. "what's this?" I asked.
" Just a little present for your birthday. The others have got you one as well." he said.
"Well at least I get some presents this year." I looked at the ground.
" What's wrong?"
"It's just... every year after I found out about my powers I hardly got any presents from my mum or dad or where I lived. And this year is probably the only year I actually got presents again." When I finished saying that to him we were at my house." Well I'll see you in a minute since I live two doors away." I laughed at his statement. " see you in a minute." I opened my door to be greeted with a birthday hug from my aunt. I saw that she had changed into a more celebrating outfit and wondered why. "why have you changed I thought we were just having a little celebration just us three and my friends." I asked confused.
" Your cousins and their boyfriend and girlfriend are coming over." my uncle said before my aunt could say anything. My cousins Mckayla and Bradley, who are both 18 and 21, live in New York like their parents ,my aunt and uncle, but they don't have powers like me and my other cousin Taylor who were mysteriously born with them.
I started walking up the stairs to my room when my aunt said "there's a dress on your bed for you to wear for the party." Party was that the reason why she wore that outfit, of course it was Isabella why else would she be wearing it. I got to my room and changed into my dress after texting Peter, Harry, Gwen and Flash that it was a party instead because more people were coming over. When I had finished putting the dress on I walked over to the mirror. The dress looked nice, it came down just above my knees and was a light blue. I turned away from the mirror and found some blue heels. When I had finished putting them on I went to the bathroom to do my hair. I finished curling my long, brown hair as I heard a knock on the door. I walked down stairs and opened the door to see that it was Peter. He looked quiet handsome in his party clothes. When he shut the door he turned to look at me, he stood there staring at me. I walked over to him to see if he was alright.
After shutting the door I turned around and saw Isabella. She looked beautiful in her blue party and with her hair curled. I found myself stood there staring at her until she came over and asked " are you alright?" I snapped out of my thoughts and replied "yeah I'm fine."
" Do you want something to drink?"
" Yes please."
" What do you want? We have lemonade, orange juice, coke or water."
" I'll have lemonade please." she walked into the kitchen and brought me my lemonade and herself some orange juice. Just then her uncle walked into the living and put on some music on for the party. " So you must be Peter." He asked as he stuck his hand out for me to shake. " I'm Isabella's uncle. it's nice to meet you."
"Nice to meet you too sir." As I shook it her aunt walked into the dinning room with some plates of food in her hands. She walked over to us and introduced herself as well. Just then there was a knock at the door. Isabella walked over to it and opened it.
After my aunt introduced herself to Peter there was another knock at the door. I walked over to it and opened it. It was Gwen, Harry and Flash. when they each introduced themselves to my aunt and uncle the party started. we talked and played just dance on my uncles kinect. Then there was another knock on the door, my aunt opened it and it was Mckayla and her boyfriend Tyler and Bradley and his girlfriend Lexis.
( 2 hours later)
It was nearly ten o clock and I hadn't opened my presents yet. I opened my first one which was from my aunt and uncle. they got me a necklace with an I on. Then was Gwen's which she made me open because she was desperate for me to open it and it was a friendship bracelet. Next was Harry's, then Flash's and Mckaylas and Bradley's. After I had finished what looked like was all my presents, my aunt and uncle left the living room and came back in with another present in a bag but this didn't have a name on. There was a card which I opened and looked at who it was from but it just said the initials C.B, N.R , T.S, B.B, S.R and T.O. I tried to think of who those initials belonged to but couldn't put names to them. However since it was getting really late now and everybody had to go home I decided to open it in the morning. When everyone had left I went upstairs into my bedroom and got my pjs on before throwing myself onto my bed and falling asleep.
