"Happy Birthday!!!!!!" Andy, Kirsty, Ben, Jack and Mum and Dad yelled as they barged into my room, "Happy birthday to youuu, happy birthday to youuu, happy birthday dear Ellyseee, happy birthday to you!" They lay my birthday cake at the end of my bed, on a tray of course, as I sat up and I made my wish.
I'm not going to tell you my wish of course because then it won't come true but I promise to tell you if it ever does. Oh how I wish it would come true.
I blew out my candles with a smile present on my face but it faded realising that Michael wasn't here, "Hip hip!"
"Hooray!" Everyone yelled in unison and I giggled as they brang the cake back downstairs. I told them I'd be down in a second as I got changed first.
I picked out any clothes from my dresser and threw them on as quick as possible before I ran into my bathroom, tying my hair up into a messy but and chucking on a quick layer of tinted lip balm and mascara. I looked at myself in the mirror as I shrugged, "I look decent at least." I said before heading down stairs where they were all mingling together, the attention turning towards me as I squeezed between them and towards the cake where they were waiting for me to make the first cut.
Everyone gathered around and I picked up the big knife off the counter as I slowly sliced through the cake and everyone cheered. My family should know by now not to trust me with a knife because I'm the clumsiest person ever but so far no one's toes have been cut off so it's going good.
Better than my 15th party when I almost cut off Ben's finger with the knife but luckily he has good reflexes and moved out of the way just in time. He laughed it off but I never went near that knife for while, afraid that I was actually going to hurt someone.
Anywayy, I cut the rest of the slice and noticed it was banana cake, "Yusss! It's banana cakes, whoop whoop!" I giggled and everyone laughed too, "Thanks Mummy, thanks Daddy" I kissed both of their cheeks but saved their hugs for a later date because I didn't want to get cake on them.
I dug into my cake but after a few bites, I started to feel sick again so I stopped eating. It must be the cake, the feeling will fade.
But even after an hour the feeling was still here, "Kirsty, I'm starting to feel ill again," I whispered in her ear as the music pounded throughout the house and everyone talked, danced or sat awkwardly on the couch. Aka, me.
"Go get a glass of water, girly." She said and I took her advice, I have to admit, I did feel a lot better but I still had that feeling like I was going to throw up. I just ignored it and went on with what I was doing but the feeling got worse and worse until I couldn't take it anymore and I had to go to the bathroom.
I locked the door behind me and looked at myself in the mirror, I was extremely pale. I looked just as bad as I felt. Ugh. I was just starting to feel okay when it all came back up again and I sprinted over to the toilet. Whyyy? I've been feeling like this all damn week. It's certainly not a cold or a flu, but if it's not that. Then what is it?
"Babes, let us in!" Andy banged on the door and I turned on the tap, wiped away the sick from my mouth before I flushed the sick away and opened the door, "Are you alright?" She asked the moment I opened the door and I nodded as the feeling returned. Can it just go away, like for reals?
"You don't look alright? You've been vomiting all week, we need to take you to the doctor," Kirsty said as placed the toilet lid down as I sat on it, clutching my stomach. Cramps. Kill. Me, "Why don't we just open the presents now and then she can go back to bed and we'll explain to everyone that you're not feeling well." I nodded. not exactly feeling like talking.
"I'm not that good at speeches but I would just like to thank all of you for coming to my birthday and making it an awesome time. You've always been there for me and I appreciate it so much. I love you all!" I smiled as I hugged each and everyone of them before they left, knowing I wasn't feeling too well.
"I'll ring the doctor," Kirsty said as she pulled out her phone but I shook my head, "Why not? You need to go."
"I'll just wait it out, I'll be fine. Now that I think of it though, this might be a bit, tmi but I didn't get my period today."
"It's your birthday present from Mother Nature," Andy giggled but Kirsty thought about it for a minute like she had an idea but I guess she dropped it because she never said anything.
"I can't believe it's 7 pm already.." I gasped as I looked at my phone before as I snuggled into bed, texting Mikey good night. I don't actually know what time it is over there. It could be morning and I would have no idea.
I peeled my eyes open as I slammed my hand down on my alarm. Last night I had the absolute worst sleep ever. I kept waking up throughout the night to throw up. It was horrible and it wasn't a pleasant experience for the girls either.
"Hey, girly." Kirsty half smiled as she sat down on the end of my bed, "I was thinking about it all last night and I think you might be, as crazy as this sounds, pregnant." My eyes popped out of my head at the thought.
"Pr-pregnant? Are you sure?" I asked, sitting straight up.
"You've been sick a lot, cramps and you missed a period, sounds pretty pregnant to me. This morning before you woke up, I went down to the store and bought you some tests, take one." I looked at her as if she was crazy before I nodded. I only just turned 18 yesterday and now there's a possibility I could be pregnant.
Thank you so much for reading! I'm sorry it took so long for me to update :/
