Football?! ~ A Photo Story


Claire's POV


"OK you can do this." I said to myself.
"I can't do it." I thought.


"All you have to do is pretend you don't know." I argued.
"But you do know." I thought again.


Mackenzie and Fox's meowing interrupted my inside-my-head-argument.


"Well, here we go." I whispered as I walked into the living room.


Taryn and Charlie were setting something on the table, but I couldn't see what it was.
"Hi, guys." I said, kind of loudly.


They both jumped and turned around.
"HI!" Taryn yelled.


"Whatcha got there?" I asked, trying to peek around Charlie.


"Snacks." Taryn answered.


"Snacks?" I repeated.
That was not the answer I had expected.


"Yeah," Charlie said, "for the football game."


"Oh." I mumbled, "And there's ah, um, nothing else happening today?"
"No." Charlie said.
"Not that I can think of." Taryn answered.


"Oh, um, I feel kind of tired. I'm going back to bed." I said, sadly.
I mean how could they forget that today was-


"Claire, we were joking!" Taryn called.


I turned around and saw, on the table exactly what I had hoped for.


"Happy Birthday, Claire! Charlie exclaimed.


"Wow! Thanks guys!" I said.


"Hey, you guys even got me that picture from that store in the mall!" I added, "For a second I really did think you guys forgot my birthday."


"You really think we're that terrible?" Taryn asked, "Now, let's eat some cake!"

**********************************************


After the cake was gone, they made me sit in a chair with my eyes closed.
"Can I open 'em yet?" I asked.
"No." Taryn and Charlie said in unison.


I felt someone place something in my hands.
Then Taryn said, "This is from both of us, and the Human. Now, go ahead and look."


I looked and it made me gasp.
I looked up at Taryn and said, "Is this what I think it is?"


All I got for an answer was, "Do you like it?"


It was a telescope.
And not just any telescope,  it was a Constellation Tube, one of the best.


"I don't like it. I LOVE it!"

The End
