My 12th birthday.

2 days before my birthday I thought that no one can remember my birthday. '' oh, I don't think that anyone can remember my birthday''. So I started to work to remind my birthday to everyone. ''I can't to this thing much longer. I think they are trying to take it easy''. Then I didn't want to do it much longer so I didn't did it. But after 2 days that day were my birthday. They were so strange but I was so angry. '' ohhhh, why? can't they really remember it'' After few minutes I came out of my room there was a cake on the table and they all said surprise. I was so spires. '' I knew that you don't forgot my birthday''. And that was the best birthday ever.

CALLING ALL USERS! LET'S MAKE A SEQUEL!
Elsa007 came up with this idea. Users can write a sequel of a short story that previous users have written. So, you can continue the story here. And, please write the username who makes the story ;D

Boa Boa, people call him like this.
He lives in mountains, rarely comes down to the town where people gather to live.
Some say he's the guardian of the town. (Elsa007) Others say he is just a suspicious hunter.

Boa Boa lives in a small house made of wood. There aren't many rooms. Only a bathroom, and a kitchen with a dusty carpet, where he sleeps at night. He lives on his own, right beside the river in the forest.

One night, Boa Boa hears a sound. It's a weak sound almost like a whisper, but every word is clear (hermione123). A sound that says:....

Ps. If you have a better title for this comment, not the story (that capital sentence), you can change it :)

In my country, birthday isn't completely important. If you're under nine years old, you might get a party or cake or gifts. But, when you're already 10 years old or older, you may not care again about birthday. Most kids here just greets the birthday kid or sometimes give presents (but it rarely happens) . And who greets and gives the birthday kid are only the birthday kid's closest friends. I even forget my 12 birthday because we don't so care about it.

I have grandpa and grand ma. Grandpa was dead years ago.
He's a little short but he's handsome, very kind and funny.
My grandfather's birthday comes after a few days.
So i really miss my grandpa. My grandma does too.

Today I saw my family album with my grandma. We found a photo of grandpa and grandma standing.
Even in my eyes, grandpa looks really short, but grandma is tall.
"How strange, how they had got married? Anyway he is something." I smiled at it and thought that there was a good story.

After seeing the album, we had a talk about grandpa.
At that time, I asked her to tell me about their marrige.
She said. "We always sat down to date, But it was too late when we stood up."

Attack from UFO

Hello, I’m Ben and I’m 14. I still remember what happened. This happened when I was 6 which was 2119. It was a Saturday morning. I woke up early and I was eating breakfast. As usual, I went to the market place. Suddenly, the UFO came and vanished everything apart from me. First, I thought it was just a dream, but sadly, it wasn’t! How terrible! I went home as fast as I can but UFO has already taken my house.

The next day evening, the police said that the people who survived will sent to the 2nd Earth. The planet called N-0507.

Few hours later, I was sent to the space ship. Soon the captain said “count down 3...2...1...blast up!”. It was exciting for 3 second because the UFO attacked our ship I found my mom and my friends. The captain said that he will let the people aged 20 to 24 to help people in UFO to come to our ship. But as I know, it is dangerous. It was a moment that I had to choose between my family and my life. I chose my family. Later I finally went to the UFO and... BOOM!

Me and other people were falling down from the UFO. The hopitel space ship resqued us and luckily I was still alive.

THE END.

I am in 9th grade so with my classmates I decided to take a trip to the
village of Lumas and visit Sineci. The school permitted us to stay for 1
month there. We all were very happy and excited about this trip. On a
sunny day, we arrived in the village by bus. I knew very well this village
because my grandparent lives there, so we decided to go to my
grandparents to know more about Sineci. My grandparents live in a
beautiful house surrounded by forest. When we went to their house my
grandparents told us for the beautiful place where Sineci is located and for
the local residents, that was built there. Rexhina, Stela, and Ledian asked
them for the cave of Sineci. Grandparents told them that the cave is on a
high mountain. Also, they told my friends about the lost city of Katunda and
the source of the dragon. At this moment I made a promise to myself that I
will discover the mystery about this place. We left for Sineci. The road was
very difficult. To go there, we must pass some small streams. While
walking amidst the woods we were hearing melodious chirruping of several
birds. When we had arrived we saw the wonderful locality out
there. Sineci was a magical place. It consisted of two large ponds. The
SKY WAS REFLECTED FROM THE POND water and as a result, the
ponds were blue like the sky.  The people there told us that the ponds are
too deep and many people had died there. We stopped at the locality and
ate something. I and my friend Genta, after we end the lunch decided to
climb the cliff to see the forest. When we climbed to the top, we saw the
source of Sinec. The source of Sinec was coming out of a giant old rock.

It was Dasha`s 15th birthday. She didn’t expect us, but her mother was in business. She helped us organize this day. Dasha did not guess anything.

First, her mother sent Dasha to the store. At the same time, we were preparing her room for her arrival. There were a lot of balls and gifts. For 15 minutes we managed to arrange everything just fine.

Moreover, we were sure that everything would go as it should. But, our plan was failed.

While we were preparing her room, she saw us through the window. Surprise was failed. But she was impressed by our preparations.

So far, she remembers this birthday as the most positive and enjoyable. Her mother told us: “Next time close the curtains, otherwise there will be no surprise”. It will remain in her heart forever.

Thanks to polinafris, my friend)

It was 22nd January 2017. My 12th Birthday. And it was our School Picnic too! So I thought it'll be double fun celebrating my birthday at beach.(Our picnic spot was at a beach). But I found that everyone has forgotten about my birthday. I was so sad. And I noticed that everyone was hiding something from me. That made me more sad. (After a few hours later) I was sitting on a chair front of the ocean. Suddenly my friends jumped on me saying Happy Birthday!!!!! I was so happy. And the best part was while cutting the cake they pushed my face on the cake and I was like a Cake Monster!!
IT WAS MY BEST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION EVER!!
