The Big Day Forgotten
| "Happy birthday!" Anna sang as she thrust a bunch of flowers at Autumn.
"Oh wow! I completely forgot! What with all the stuff going on..." Her thoughts trailed off as they walked into the auditorium for practice.
"Anna, we have practice today, right? I mean, we have to...our performance of Phantom of the Opera is next week. Where is everyone?"
"Surprise!" the entire cast shouted. They all began applauding as they gathered around her.
"We wanted this day to be extra special for you," Anna explained.
"You've been under a lot of stress lately. I mean, with your parents' divorce, your mom having to take two jobs, and everything else, we thought you needed a break. You need to have a little fun!" Autumn's mom approached, carrying a lavishly decorated cake.
"Yes, I know. Today is your special day. I took the afternoon off to spend it with you."
"Oh wow! This is amazing!"
"What are you going to do for your birthday?"
"Yeah, you never told us what you wanted. Thanks for making us guess!"
"Happy birthday!" Amidst all the shouts and questions, she stood speechless; all she could do was smile.
