  1. It is the day before my biggest birthday party yet. "I am going to have so much fun tomorrow" I say to my mom. "I know honey" she says as she hugs me. "Son you feel a little hot, I think I should take your temperature just too be sure". When she sticks the thermometer in my mouth it reads 104.2. "Conrad what are we going to do about your huge party tomorrow?" "I can just not tell anybody and act like nothing is up. When I wake up in the morning I feel better but still not 100%. During the party nobody finds out about it. It was the funnest day of my life.

  3. (Just so you know, this takes place in the Septimus Heap Universe. If you notice weird spellings, that is how it is in the book. Also, I am taking Marcia's place and there is no such thing as Jenna or the Heaps. DomDaniel is still in the Badlands and the Queen is still alive.)


    Life in the Wizard Tower was amazing. Even since I had become Alther's apprentice, everything had seemed even more Magykal. Nad to make things even better, my birthday party was tomorrow! Everything seemed to be going for me until I, Gigi the ExtraOrdinary Apprentice, had caught the flu. I spent the next 3 hours of my day coughing. I had to do something, but there was nothing I could do. Alther said it was a form of Darke Magyk, and the only thing I could do was wait, until an idea sparked into my head. Alther had told me during one of my lessons that the only way to cure the Darke Flu (which was what I had) was for a dragon that you tamed to breathe Fyre on you. Thats it! All I needed was a dragon! But where could I get one?


    The next day, I woke up in a trance. I felt horrible. Where was I? Then I remembered that I had fell asleep in the library, and that it was my birthday. Suddenly, I heard Alther call from across the room.
    "Gigi? I have a birthday present for you!" he said in a happy tone. He gave me a beautiful indigo rock. It was shinier than any diamond and felt warm in my hand. All of the sudden, there was a crack. I dropped it, surprised, but Alther was ready. He put his hands under it right before it touched the ground. I saw a little head peeking out, and suddenly, I realized that Alther had given me a dragon egg. When I turned around, he looked as surprised as I was. He probably didn't know it was a dragon, but I hugged him anyway. The tiny indigo dragon shot a small bolt of red Fyre. I had been cured. I ended up calling her Lavender, and she soon grew up to become an amazing dragon. Best of all, I could have my party after all!

    The Birthday Twist:
    "Its my big party and I am so excited for it"! I exclaimed. "Well its only tomorrow, so you don't have much time to wait" my dad said. I skipped to my room, and happily went to my bed. The party is tomorrow, and my birthday is one of my favorite holidays!! To pass some time, I decided to read a little. "Ah, I love reading a good book" I thought.
    A little bit later, I started to feel a little hot. Once I touched my forehead I knew what was wrong. My smile suddenly went upside down. My feet picked me up off the bed, and walked slowly to my dads study. My hand went on the knob, and opened the door. "Dad, I have some bad news, I think I have the flu" I told him. He looked very sympathetic for me, and said "Oh, sorry Kyle. We can still have a little fun with a movie, but I am afraid you won't be having a birthday party". Feeling so blue made be so mad and sad at the same time. Going into my room, I felt so disappointed.
    I didn't feel like doing anything, so I took a nap. In my dreams, (nightmares)I was sick right when all my guests came. We were starting to play tag, and then all of a sudden my body escalates up by so many temperatures. I have to take a minute, and kneel. Catherine comes up and asks "Are you okay?". "No actually, I feel a little hot" I reply. "Oh no. We should tell your parents" she suggests. We got to my house, and tell my dad. "Thats really unfortunate. Sorry, but I think you either will have to tell your guests to go home, or not participate". My eyes stare at the ground.
    "Huh". I woke up. There was a very worried face on my face, and immediately remembered it was real, just not the same story. So I go on my I-pad. Its 5:30, and its time for dinner. "Kyle, come on. Its dinner time" My dad reminds me. "Coming" I reply. Then I walk to dinner, feeling under the weather. "This must be the worst birthday ever" I whisper.

  5. I woke up and looked at the calendar and I saw a circled date on the 2nd of March. It was my birthday but I was sick with the flu. RATS!!!! That’s not good,being sick on my birthday is really bad. I was in bed and on the side table was medicine, soup with bread and water mixed with lemon and honey. Mom, Dad, and Kate came into the room to check on me and said, “How are you feeling sweetheart? Aww you poor thing, sick on your birthday. ” Mom and Dad patted me on the head and said, both of us will stay next to you”.
    Mom said “ I have your favorite vanilla cake with white frosting and marzipan all around it that says, “Happy birthday Alex”. Later I came out of my room because I felt better and I had cake with my family. It was a great birthday after all even though I was sick.

  7. Prompt: It's your birthday and you are about to have a huge party but the day before the party you get sick with the flu.

    My Birthday:
    Tomorrow is that day I have been looking forward to for ages. It’s my birthday!!!! and tomorrow I am having a huge party to celebrate. That night I couldn’t stop talking about what a great day tomorrow was going to be. Before I went to bed I thought of how fun tomorrow would be, I couldn’t even sleep that night because I was so excited. But when I finally fell asleep it was very late and the next morning when I woke up I kept sneezing and coughing and then I said “no, no, no please don’t say I have the flu” when I got out of bed I felt so sick. This wasn't the birthday morning I had in mind. I had to stay home from school that day. But just as it struck 3:00 I woke up from the nape I was having and I felt so much better. I was so relieved I was better, that meant I could still have my awesome birthday party!! It wasn’t such a bad birthday after all.

  8. (Also so you know this actually happened to me but it wasn't the flu, I just had a common cold instead)

    I jumped into bed and pulled the blanket over me. I felt sort of cold, but still I was excited. Suddenly I dozed off into a peaceful dream about my birthday tomorrow.

    I woke up, and felt really cold. I could tell that I had a high fever, and it was going up. My mom a long time ago told me when you feel cold, the fever starts to rise. I had the stomach flu. My close friends were coming to a small party. It was going to be fun, but I might have to tell my mom. Wait a minute. I told myself that if I wouldn’t tell my mom, then we could still have the party! It’s easy pretending not to be sick, you just have to act normal. Now I feel a sick feeling in my stomach, maybe it’s time to go to the bathroom, and fast!

    I came back from school, ready for my classmates and friends to arrive, still having that bad feeling in my stomach. I felt like I would barf out anything I ate. My nose was stuffy, my stomach felt awful, and I just was really cold. I heard a knock at the door. Mom went and opened the door when my friends Kyle and John Max entered. Alison wasn’t close behind and so far that was it. The others weren’t able to come because they had too many sports. John max went to use the bathroom and Alison decided she would go get some things from her dad’s car for a minute. Mom went to get the lunch ready while Kyle and I sat on the living room couch. I remember having pneumonia when I was six, so I don’t want to have that feeling again. Teeth chattering, fever rising, warm towel on my head, oh and don’t forget about the medicine. I remember the flavor like it was yesterday. Suddenly I started to feel like I was going to throw up. I had the worst feeling ever. Kyle said, “ Uh oh…” He knew what was coming in an instant. Right before it was going to come out I woke up.

    It was all a dream. I found out that it was officially my birthday and we would have lots of food, games, and fun. I started getting ready to go to school, when I just remembered that I was uncovered with a blanket because I got hot in the night so I kicked it off me. What a weird, yet worrying dream. I was glad that it wasn’t real. The throwing up sensation in my stomach was almost real, wait one second. Have to go get a plastic bag!

  9. Have you ever felt sick on a day when everyone will honor you? In my opinion, that would make me feel terrible. I woke up one morning, only to realize that I was sick and that it was November 25th and all my relatives were coming to celebrate. I moaned and plopped back onto the pillow. This was not going to be good. I told myself I should probably go have breakfast. After I munched down a waffle with chocolate chips on top, I started to feel less queasy. I told myself that maybe if I keep pushing myself, nobody would notice!! I finally got through the whole day and only once I started to feel really sick. The next day, is when I told my parents that I wasn't feeling well. I was proud of myself for exerting myself and still having fun at the same time!

    1. It's your birthday and you are about to have a huge party but the day before the party you get sick with the flu.

      Coming from school and I'm so excited because tomorrow is my big birthday party at the paintball arena. I love Paintball so much. And I go to my bed and I go on my iTouch I look up what is the best paintball gun and then all of a sudden my eyes seem to get a little drowsy. I tell my mom that I'm really scared that I'm sick so she goes and grabs a thermometer. Mom later checks my temperature. I read 99.9°F. My mom tells me to go to bed and get rest and then hopefully tomorrow you'll feel better. Next morning I wake up I feel better when I go and I take my temperature am at 100°F. I tell my mom I can't go now I'm so sick my friends will catch the flu. And we ended up moving my birthday party for another day at least I still get to go paint balling.

  11. It is 5:00am, my eyes sprung open, this was the day! I hopped out of my bed and run to the kitchen. As I was running, I saw my sister playing in the couch surrounded by tissues and wrapped in a blanket, “what is it?” I asked my sister, “I have a cold,” she said. “I’m sorry Lucy, I can’t come to your birthday party tomorrow.” I looked down at her blanket mad and frustrated, I ran to my mom, “mom, if Gaby is sick I will stay with her until tomorrow!” I said determined, my mom sighed, “I’m afraid not, you could catch her cold!” I eyed her “No! I will be with my sister until the very next day, in fact, I’m going to stay with her until she gets better!” I exclaimed, I walked over to my sister, took a blanket and looked at her straight in the eye until she twitched a smile, I did too. While we were playing a game of monopoly I started to feel a sneeze coming up, “Achooo!” I sneezed loudly, “Oh, no,” I said “I think I might be getting a cold!” but before I could say that it was just one sneeze I had another, “Achooo!” then another, “Achooo!” I had gotten a cold. The next day, my birthday party was canceled to next Friday, instead I had to camp out with my sister, although every now and then we had to taste sour fruit flavored medicine, we laughed at our responses drinking them! We had so much fun in my birthday, I learned a lesson too, not everything was about presents balloons and streamers, what really counts is the people around you that care for you.

  12. "I can't wait for my B-day tomorrow!" I said as my mom drove me to our house.
    "I bet you it is going to be super fun" my mom said.
    Then when we were at our house I went outside and started to play Basketball.Then next thing I know I'm sneezing"A-achooo".My mom comes outside and says"Are you O.K?"
    "Yeah im fi-achoo"
    "But you are sneezing a lot let me check your temperature"
    "Oh my your temperature is 102% I think you have the flu,come inside and lay down,And I'm sorry but your birthday is going to have to move Sunday"
    "Bu-"
    "I'm sorry Daniel but it has to,goodnight."
    "Goodnight" I sighed sadly.
    On the day of my birthday I got a lot of presents,and lots of family came over but that was the main part.So everything did not seem as bad as I thought it would.
    THE END

  13. It is my birthday, April 1st, unfortunate right! Anyways, I am super excited for my birthday. All of my friends and I are going to go to a massive pop concert together. Three days before the concert, my mom tells me that the concert has been canceled and that she is super sorry, but she will make it up to me some time. The morning of my birthday I wake up feeling really bad. I am all hot and sweaty. I go downstairs to find that my mom made soup for breakfast, ewww. After eating the soup my nose is all runny and my face is hot. I am suddenly really cold, and I tell it to my mom. She puts her hand on my forehead and takes my temperature, it's high. So, I stay home from school watch crazy movie and play games with my mom all day. It is actually pretty fun... At around 2:30 I start to feel really hot again. My mom says that my temperature is really high and she needs to take me to the doctor, she also says that my eyes are puffy and according to GOOGLE I need to keep a cool cloth over them. As my mom picks me up and moves me out of the car, I hear a lot of noise, it must be this FLU thing. Finally my mom takes to cloth off of my eyes. I don't know what I was expecting, but it was not to be facing a stadium full of pop fans... If you'll believe me, I got to sing on the stage with many famous pop names (ex. 5th Harmony, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Bruno Mars, John Legend, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, and Sara Bareilles to name a few.) I was also treated with costumes and all that other stuff. At the end all the performers came on stage and sang happy birthday, TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In the end I learned that everything was one big APRIL FOOLS JOKE!! My mom had purposely turned the heater super high to make me hot, then given me soup for breakfast because she knew that was what makes my nose run, after that she had pretty much lied or repeated everything.

    In the end though, I WAS THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER.

    Now I have to go. I have a dinner planned with Taylor Swift to talk about me coming along with her on her new tour, oops I wasn't supposed to say that...
