Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight :( But I do own tickets to see the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn Part 2! :D
I woke up on my birthday with a smile on my face. I got up and looked at my sister's bed to see that it was empty. I shrugged my shoulders and got out some clothes and my robe before I walked to the bathroom to get ready for today. I dressed up in my brother's old trousers and a top I had made myself.
I went down stairs to see my mother cooking. I went to the counter to make myself a cup of tea.
"Good morning mother!" I said cheerfully as I sat at the table. My mother smiled and brought over a cooked breakfast for me to eat.
"Good morning dear, happy birthday!" She said cheerfully. "Your siblings have gone to the market to pick up a few things for your party later. You can go and find them after you have eaten." She walked back to the stove. I smiled and began to eat.
After I had finished I washed up my plate and cutlery. I turned to my mother once again.
"Mother, where is father today? I would have thought he would want to wish me a happy birthday." I asked, even though I had a good idea of the answer. Mother sighed.
"I'm afraid he had to go to the office dear, but he did say that he wished you a good birthday." I sighed and kissed mother on the cheek.
"All right mother, I will go and find Edward and Emma-Lee, love you!"
"Love you too dear!" And I went to put on a pair of shoes and went to the market.
I was walking through the market looking for my siblings. I heard people talking about the Spanish influenza and sighed. It was said that the virus would eventually find its way over to the US. I sighed and looked over to a small stall selling jewellery to see my siblings. I smiled and started to run over to them but was interrupted by Jessica Lockman. I struggled not to roll my eyes as she sneered at me.
"Well, well, well, look what the cat dragged in..." She said. This time I did roll my eyes. Ever since she turned 15 she has turned into this bully. She would go on taunting me, trying to get a reaction but I did not give her the satisfaction. So I may have punched her once but she did deserve it…
"Oh do go away Jessica. Go and find some boy to kiss or something, I wish to find my siblings." I tried to step around her but she stepped in front of me again.
"Just because it is your birthday doesn't mean you will get everybody's attention. I will make sure no one will want you!" She said and with that stalked off. I looked around to see people staring in my direction. I sighed and shook my head before walking over to Edward and Emma-Lee.
"Jessica again?" Emma-Lee asked. I nodded my head. She turned to look at me. "Don't worry about her, she is just being petty because it is our day and she is not getting any attention." I nodded and Edward called my name. I walked over to him, Emma-Lee at my heels.
"Happy birthday you two." He said and gave us both a small box. We looked at each other and shrugged before opening them up. My mouth fell open. Inside was a ring with an emerald and two diamonds on either side. It was beautiful. I looked over to Emma-Lee and she had the same expression on her face. We looked at Edward.
"Mother saw them and said I should get them for you." He said looking down. There was a slight blush on his cheeks. I smiled and pulled him in for a hug. He seemed quite surprised but hugged me back.
"Thank you Edward." I said. I pulled back and Emma-Lee gave him a hug too. We then went round to collect what we needed for the party before heading home.
Our party was in full swing. Emma-Lee and I were the centre of attention all afternoon. We had been given many wonderful gifts and we thanked everyone. At present, people were dancing while Edward played the piano and Emma-Lee on her Violin. I was leaning against a tree in the back garden, where everyone was dancing. Suddenly the music came to a sudden halt and, low and behold, Jessica came storming up to me. She was glaring at me with here blue eyes.
"I told you not to steal my thunder!" She yelled at me. I rolled my eyes and walked past her. I turned to face her as I walked backwards towards the house.
"Jessica what on earth are you on about? It is my birthday; I am aloud to be the centre of attention!" I turned and ran into the house, into my room, tears running down my cheeks. I heard Emma-Lee come in and sit next to me before giving me a hug.
"Don't listen to her Emma. She is just jealous that she cannot get her own way." I nodded and looked at her.
"I know, I will get cleaned up and meet you down stairs in a minute. I went into the bathroom and cleaned my elf up before taking a deep breath and going down stairs. I saw Jessica talking to my brother, who looked as if he wishes he were somewhere else. I couldn't blame him though. I walked over to them. When Jessica saw me she scowled and put a hand on Edward's arm. He quickly shook it off.
"Jessica I think you should apologise to me. I think that your outburst was unnecessary." I told her calmly.
"Why would I apologise to you? You deserve everything I throw at you!" That was it. I walked up to her and punched her straight in the nose. I then walked off into the house for the second time today. Little did I know that it would have a great impact on my future…
