"Nellie, I want to break up with you?"
"Wha-!?" I exclaimed, spinning around so fast from just moments before setting up my new radio, that I had gotten as a gift, before my birthday party. Now instead of a happy expression, my face was filled with confusion and hurt. "What do you mean break up?"
Mike look rather uncomfortable, "It's, uh. not you Nel, it's um, I'm sorry. I just don't have feelings for you anymore. I was, I was going to tell you later, but I wanted to be upfront with you. I - I'm sorry. Can, um, can we still be friends?"
Tears collected in my eyes. "Sure." I whispered wishing this was all just a dream. I held back my tears not wanting him to know exactly how hurt I was. After all, I thought he was the one. And it was my birthday. Who breaks up with someone on their birthday? Right before the party too.
"I'll see you downstairs." He said quickly, taking off out my bedroom door.
I flopped on my bed, now letting my heartbroken sobs fill the air. Mr. Socks cuddled next to me and I clutched to him as I cried.
And I cried. And cried.
Needless to say, my birthday party was cancelled. I didn't much feel like celebrating. Instead I spent the entire day in my bed sobbing loudly for my broken heart until I started hyperventilating. My mom tried comforting me the best she could with ice cream and movies, but when it is your first boyfriend it isn't that easy to forget.

During a visit to the big city a few years back, I ran into Carolina Dakota Amaryllis Dallas! Only it wasn’t Carolina Dakota Amaryllis Dallas anymore.
“My name’s Charity Ball now!” she whispered; then pleading, “Please forget the other name.”
I wanted to laugh, but, you know, everyone’s a Unicorn, so who was I to quash it? I knew Carolina…er…Charity when she was just a little filly back home. We dated once! It was a mutual decision that we not repeat the disaster. As soon as she finished high school, she moved away. She always talked about being a movie star, but I knew she didn’t have the ambition to stick with it; or anything else for that matter. Personally, I think she was just looking for a free ride.
Anyway, we started talking about the good old days and she invited me to a karaoke bar, saying it would be fun. Against my better judgment, I agreed to go. Besides, it was my birthday and I could use a night of fun.
She led me around to a few shops to pick out some [suitable] clothes to wear. Like my cowboy outfit wasn’t good enough for the city. After buying clothes, she took me to a salon where they removed my hat and fluffed my hair. They placed my hat in a bag and told me not to wear it until “the ‘do falls.”
We arrived at the bar early on, before the big crowd came in. We found a table and ordered drinks. After the second cocktail, I let her coax me in to getting up behind that teleprompter and singing some karaoke! I told her I couldn’t sing a lick. She said that I could just mouth the words along with her. Well, no sooner had we started the song, when she introduced to the club that it was my birthday and started urging them to get me to sing, all the while backing off the stage.
I’m sure the red in my cheeks bled into the pink of my shirt. I felt like my horn had just fallen off, I was so angry with her. The boos and heckling were unnerving. Despite my embarrassment, I finished the song, and then quietly left the bar.
Looking back, I realize that that incident only served to define who I am now; mold my Unicorn! Sure hurt at the time, though! And…I can’t believe she remembered it was my birthday.

Call this a birthday? More like a nightmare if I say so myself..
I've always had small parties, because if I invited more people then the cost of my party would be rather expensive. In the meantime, I woke up in the morning bright and early.
New age, older age!!
I looked out my bedroom window to see a few people near the park, which was where I wanted my party to be held. Minutes later, I walked towards my destination where every sung "Happy Birthday" to me, I knew this was going to be a good day as my friend Jennie[In the pink and green dress]and sorted out everything. Until...
People started clapping in rhythm, as they were doing that I noticed a shadow behind me...I turned around...
"CLOWN!!!!" Ever since I was a child I HATED clowns. And it turns out that Jennie wanted to play a prank, on my birthday, yeah. Thanks Jennie...
My brother was in stitches, my auntie had no idea what was going on and me? Well, let's just say I was never going to forget that moment. Ever.

Thinking back on it, it all went wrong when I suggested we have a pool party for our birthday. Corey agreed straight away. It was just the usual crew. Me, him, Emma, Jasmine, and Alan.
I never should have suggested such a thing. Even with only two other girls there, I felt horrible. They were wearing the skimpiest bikinis I had ever seen, and they looked amazing. Of course I had to cover up. Of course it made me feel bad that I was jealous of my own sister and my best friend…
Alan had jumped out, to go dry off. I’d been standing by the pool, too scared to actually jump in. I still don’t know whether it was on purpose, or by accident, but before I knew it, I’d fallen into the pool. Water filled my lungs as I screamed in fright.
I struggled against the water, even as I fell further down. No! I had to get out. I was panicking hard. My vision faded, until I blacked out, even as Emma somehow dragged me out of the pool.
When I came to, I was in hospital. The doctors told me I had been dead when they had found me. It was only thanks to Emma’s persistence that I’d survived. I wouldn’t be alive without my amazing sister.
It had been raining all day. A steady drizzle that put a dreary mood on everything. I, however, refused to be brought down. It was my very first costume party and I had spent ages getting the house and my costume ready. The guests arrived and I couldn't have been more thrilled, everyone had really got into the spirit and we were having a fantastic time. That is until the roof, which had been creaking ominously for hours, decided to spring a leak dousing me in flood of very chilly rain water. After the initial shock everyone pitched in with buckets and mops and I can say with some confidence that it was certainly a party to remember.
Edit for spelling mistakes.

I was born on a leap year, so my close friends always felt the need to go that extra mile. Needless to say, they had booked a room at the hottest venue in town and had decorated it with balloons, cakes, you name it, it was there. I had just popped upstairs to the ladies room, when Misty called me, it was time to blow out my candles. Of course you can imagine the sheer embarrassment that I felt when I went cascading down the stairs. My friends looked on in horror as I just sat at the bottom in a crumpled heap.
