Chapter 9

“Happy Birthday!” They chanted in unison.

I closed my eyes for a moment and pretended to make a wish. I didn’t though because I believed I had everything I could ever wish for. I was content with my life. I just wished it would stay this way. Maybe I should have made a wish.

I blew out the candles and smiled. I glanced around. All my friends were here, except for Aoi. Of all times, she wasn’t here. But it was okay, we’ll probably have our own little private celebration later on.

“Give us a speech dude!” A few of the guys shouted.

I cleared my throat.

“Thanks. Feeling good to be 16…” I looked at the group. There were probably around ten in the room. The closest of my friends. There was a lot more I want to say to them. “We’ve been through a lot haven’t we?… I remember sneaking around in the school at night, trying to set people up. And the culture festival, when we pulled off that huge play. Skipping classes to play beach volleyball. So many things happened.” I paused. “Well I must say, I’m really happy, I have everything I could ever wish for. Somehow, fate pulled us together. Don’t forget those times we had. Even if some of us are going to different schools. Thanks for coming. And thanks for the good times.” I was surprised that I made such an elaborate speech. So I grinned, and made a gun with my fingers. It was the signature hand sign. Bang. “Don’t forget.”

I looked around again, and a few of the girls looked like they were on the verge of tears. I nearly laughed. It was a good day.

Anyhow, it was time to cut the cake.
