Zoe slumped on the table, feeling dejected.
“What’s wrong with you?” I asked.
“I forgot! This year is the most bothersome of all years.” Zoe sluggishly said, feeling all beat up.
“What do you mean?” I probed.
Zoe sneered at me. “Can’t you see?”
I raised an eyebrow, ignorance written all over my face.
“Debuts year! Many high societies girls will turn into a woman this year! Including me, Holley, and Sophia! It’s like, the battle of the birthdays!”
Zoe gaped at me. “Lucky for you that you won’t be force to attend, but for me? My parents will practically drag me again.”
“Then don’t go,” I nonchalantly suggested.
“I can’t. I have to go, or my father will beat me into going. He doesn’t care what I do, but if it comes to his image and face, he will spare no one.”
“What so important about it anyways?” I asked with a scowl on my face.
Zoe and Estela looked at each other in astonishment.
Estela straitened her back as she stared at me. “Well, if it’s any other birthdays, it won’t be a big deal, but you see. This year is special. All the magazines, newspapers, different entertainment medias were all preparing for this event years ago. Not one, but many of the world’s richest will be having their debuts. Me, Zoe, Holley, Sophia, and even Emery to name a few. It will be a battle of whose birthday will be the grandest of it all.”
I just stared at them with mouth hanging open.
I don’t understand rich people at all.
If it were me, I’d just eat my favorite food while playing my favorite game or watch my favorite movies.
Arranging a party and then exhaust yourself attending to the guests and be the center of attention all day?
“See where my dilemma is? Estela has it nice with a loving parents and a delicious, sexy brother like that… but that’s not the point.”
I arched an eyebrow at her.
“I’ll be humiliated again this year. I’m sure Sophia will have it all while my birthday will just be a cake. I’m lucky if there really will be a cake.” She sighed again more burdensome than the last.
“You know. You can’t exactly blame her. With this list of high profiled birthdays, it’s only your bad luck that you are born the same year.” Estela patted Zoe’s head as if to comfort her while staring at me.
“Is Cain going to attend?” I kept my voice even, yet it didn’t hide the anxiety in them.
Estela smiled knowingly. “My brother and I don’t want to. Then again, if the one invited us belongs to the same status as us, we have to give them face.”
“Oh,” was all I could say.
“You don’t have to worry, with my brother’s natural cold and detach personality, no woman would dare to approach him, except Holley of course. That girl is crazily in love with my brother.”
I gave Estela a sarcastic smile. “Thanks for the comforting words.”
“You don’t trust my brother?” Estela dramatically pressed her hand against her chest.
“I trust Cain. It’s those women I don’t trust.”
Estela giggled. “If you’re so worried, you might as well come with us.”
I opened my mouth, yet closed it again.
“Guys…. go ahead and worry about that walking aphrodisiac…. Leave me, your friend, with her troubles and let her be humiliated in front of so many people.”
Estela and I glanced at each other and laughed.
