#141 Birthday Pie (200 words)

Inspired by: Country Pie

“Happy birthday, dear Sabrina, happy birthday to you!” The room sang as Sabrina blew out the eighteen candles on her birthday pie. She laughed and kissed Dana. Dana threw her the surprise party a day early to really surprise her. 

They passed out the pie, and Nathan being beside Sabrina, he received the last piece. He didn’t know about the surprise party, either. 

Sabrina looked over at Nathan, and who quickly turned his frown upside down. 

“What’s wrong?” she asked.

“Can I speak to you privately for a moment?” 


Sabrina and Nathan walked outside. 

“What’s on your mind?” Sabrina asked.

Nathan took a deep breath, “there’s something I’ve wanted to say to you for a long time.”

“Say it.” 

“I love you!” Nathan almost screamed. 

“I know… but I was hoping you’d move on while once you went to college.” 


“I’m not in love with you, Nathan. Did you think I’d leap into your arms because you finally articulated what’s been obvious since you were thirteen?”

“Kind of.” 

“Well, I don’t love you that way, you’re my best friend, but that’s it.” 

“I just bore my soul to you. Fuck you, Sabrina!” 

Nathan ran down the street.
