Author's Notes: So this is my first fic out of the 100 I have to do. lol. Um... There's like a sentence that refers to New Moon but it's very subtle.
For vampires, birthdays are pointless. There is no reason to count how many centuries you’ve been alive. And there sure as hell isn’t a reason to celebrate it. And if you were celebrating your 143rd birthday like I am then you wouldn’t want a party either. But of course, as tradition in the Cullen household, there will be a party.
“Oh Jazz, guess what?” Alice asked me in a sing-song voice. It was just a little after twelve at night. Not that time mattered any more. I smiled at her and cocked my head to the side.
“What?” I answered, playing along with her. I had a clue what she was going to say.
“Happy birthday,” She said with a dazzling smile. I smiled back at her and squeezed her hand, “We’re going to have a party for you.”
“You know how I feel about birthdays, Alice,” I groaned. She did that adorable pout of hers that was supposed to make me give in. She thought that that pout of hers made me give in. That was far from the reason why I agreed to everything she told me to do.
“Okay,” I sighed. Alice hopped up off the couch we were sitting on and pulled me up along with her.
“Everything is all set up downstairs. We just need the birthday boy to come and see what everyone got him,” Alice was pulling me towards the door as she spoke. I didn’t even resist.
I’d do anything for Alice. If she suddenly had a passionate hatred for me and told me to go and do something to upset the Volturi so they’d kill me, I would. I’m devoted to her. I even go to school for her. And that by itself is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. All of the Cullens know that I have a hard time being around people. Nevertheless, I do it because Alice wants me to.
When we enter the dining room all of the family is there with smiles on their faces. Rosalie’s looks forced. That is definitely not a surprise. The surprise is that Bella is there. After what happened at her birthday party a year ago I would’ve thought she’d never want to be around me ever again. Emmett pushed me into a chair and a present was shoved under my nose.
For Alice, I remind myself. I’m doing this birthday thing for Alice. But as they start to sing “Happy Birthday” I groan.
God how I hate birthdays.
