eighteen | a short story

It’s the beginning of the birthdays.  Nolan always starts off the parties, cakes, gifts, or at least he used to.  Back when they were all little.  Now, it’s just a cake, and sometimes not even that.  Of course there’s a gift.  Always a gift.  But as they all get older and are leaving home, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to have a “birthday party.”  So we make due with whoever is around and celebrate as best we can.  A bonus to this cake was the candles. I didn’t realize that I had bought trick candles.  It was kind of fun for the small bash.
