Happy birthday


She had always been a good girl – meticulous, cautious. But tonight she wasn't herself. Tonight she didn't want to be herself. She would banish years of conditioning… of saying NO, for tonight her heart would rule her head. She steeled herself. Then, ‘Happy birthday’, she said to herself biting into a huge piece of cake.

  20. That sounds like what I am going to say in about a month :) Breaking my 'no sweets' rule on my birthday! Well captured, Tulika :)

  21. Will she allow herself to break free every other day, or was it just an ordinary day - her preverbial 'birth'day? - Like any good story it had me thinking. I love this 55 fiction idea, it's new to me.
