What about the gifts?

She tiptoed to the corner, leaning to the left just a bit so she could see. She frowned and stepped out.

No one was there.

The frown deepened, lines forming on her otherwise smooth forehead.

If today was “the” day, then where were all the people? Where was the surprise celebration? And the gifts?

What about the gifts?

She glanced over her shoulder, hoping to see someone who would wish her happy things, hand her pretty things.

No one.

The disappointment was evident in her eyes as she sank onto the bottom step. She could deal with no one being there. But the gifts? What about the gifts?

The gifts aren’t always what makes “the day” special. The people make it better.
