Happy 18th Birthday Dave Today was the day. The blonde headed male turned to look around him. Nothing had changed even though everything was different. All his friends were around him talking and chatting. Everyone looked so happy. How could they smile? He couldn't even smile on his own birthday. But hey, he wasn't a cool kid anymore. He was a cool adult. Even the famous ill-tempered troll was nice to him. Nothing felt right. Nothing was right. Stupid game. Stupid, stupid, stupid. He was so stupid! He faked his happiness the whole day. For his friends. Past memories. The people he had come to know and love. Everything was perfect, except he was missing the one person he wanted their most.Happy 18th Birthday Dave1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
