Creative Challenges: Celebration.

Hello everyone! Happy Labor Day. This is today’s second Creative Challenge. If you are new to this weekly event or want to see Cynthia Dawn (the creator of the event’s) version of the prompt then clickย here.

Today’s Prompt: Write about a celebration.

With these prompts, you can either write a story based on a personal experience or one using a fictional character like I do.

My Story:

Today is my 16th birthday. My name is Savanna Willis and today I am having a music themed birthday. I get to invite 20 of my best friends. The only downside is that my annoying brothers Max and Harper have to be there because as my mom says “family is automatically invited.” I don’t agree with that but I don’t get a say in anything sibling related. It’s 10 am and I’m getting on my beautiful purple sweater, green pants, and sky blue Uggs. My mom insisted that I dressed up a little bit. I stand in front of my full length mirror and brush out my wavy red hair. It’s such a pain in the neck sometimes.

ย  ย  ย After braiding my hair as best as I can I walk down the winding stairs to find all my friends and family crowded in the living room. “SURPRISE!!!” Everyone yells and I feel a smile spreading across my face. My little brother Harper comes tottering over with my not so younger brother following him. “Happy Bwirthday!” Harper says with a little toothless grin. He’s lost a few teeth already and he’s only in Preschool. “Thank you Harper!” I say gathering him up in a big hug. He giggles and I start to laugh. I set him down and he runs off to play trains with my friend’s siblings. “Hi!, Hey!” I say to each of my friends in turn and then again to my family. Grandma Martha gives me a big kiss and I blush. Aunt Susan pinches my cheeks and I laugh. Uncle Dan gives me one of his famous bear hugs and I feel so warm and happy inside.

ย  ย  ย We all eat foods like macaroni and cheese, potato salad, and cornbread, along with some of my other favorites. When it comes to cake time I smile at everyone in turn as they sing “Happy Birthday” to me. I close my eyes and make a wish. *Woosh!* I blow out all the candles and everyone applauds. We all eat the delicious Chocolate cake with strawberry filling and chocolate frosting. Next comes presents. My mom gives me a present and from the tears in her eyes I know who it’s from. My dad passed away after battling colon cancer. We had no idea he was suffering until it was way too late. I can feel tears starting to flow down my cheeks as I slowly rip open the present. Inside is the keys to a Honda Civic. I squeal and all my friends crowd around me. I open all of the presents. I get some phone accessories, earrings, make up, ITunes cards, and a picture of my father and I. Of course I got more but all I can think about is that letter he wrote that came with the keys. He must have known that he wasn’t going to be around for my 16th birthday. I look around at all my friends and family and feel a tear run down my face. I don’t deserve all of these people who love and care about me. I’m glad they’re here to celebrate with me. I know that Dad even popped in a few times. This is by far the best birthday I’ve ever had.

Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for next Monday when Creative Challenge Day will come again ๐Ÿ™‚
