Zuni was visibly irritated. She had been
planning so much about this day but the traitors had backed out. She wanted to
enjoy, have fun, party hard. After all it was her day, her birthday but all her
so called friends had miraculously forgot about it at once. Not even a single
person in the group remembered to wish her. And the most frustrating part was,
they did call her but not to wish her; instead to ask a doubt in chemistry! And
when she herself called them and asked if they were free and could attend the
party she would be throwing, they would ask her if there was anything special
about the day! Did she buy anything new worth celebrating? Not knowing what to
say, she would disconnect the call.
She wondered how on earth everyone was busy
on that particular day itself! Someone had been to their native, someone was
going shopping and someone else couldn't come as she had to take her dog for a
walk!! Huh!! The reasons they gave! She was tired of hearing them and she just
gave up. She didn't care anymore; she had stopped expecting.
Thus the day which was to be spent
happily was now spent alone. She locked herself in her room; she didn’t feel
like speaking to anyone. She started reading novels, thinking how they are more
loyal than her friends. Just when she was about to fall asleep out of boredom,
she heard the commotion outside on the otherwise calm street. At first she
ignored it but when the voices got louder, she came outside to check what was
happening and she was shocked!
There stood her friends, her whole group,
with cake and all other items needed for party. They started singing ‘Happy
birthday’ right there on the streets while she stood there still surprised to
even move. Tears brimmed her eyes as she realized how they had planned the
whole thing together while she had sat there cursing them for not calling her.
She was touched by the lengths they had gone to arrange all this. Obviously the
element of surprise added all more to the scenario. Later while blowing the candles,
she thanked God for such a wonderful bunch of friends.
Keep Smiling :)
