It was the day before my birthday and we were on our way to the hair dressers/salon which Sammy's mum owned we walked in and were greeted by Estebon the hair stylist
"Alexa hunny it's your highlights today?"
"Yeah and a little bit bit off the ends please and a few layers" Sammy butted in
"Okay then I hear its for a special occasion am I correct?" Estebon asked nodding to Sammy's request
"yes its for my birthday tomorrow were going to have a party at party at the plaza." another stylist came in and started cutting Sammy's hair and dyed her hair chocolate brown hair, we went in the next room and had our eyebrows and nails done i had silver nails with glitter, and Sammy had blue with glitter, we paid and went for ice cream. That evening we got the dresses out formorow and watched bad grandpa laughing Sophia brought us up hotdogs with ketchup and chips with milkshake and fruit salad with yoghurt we thanked her and she left to do Sammys parents casserole. we fell asleep after we'd taken the plates and with Katies complaints I washed the dishes again.
☆the next morning★
I woke up and saw that Sammy wasn't in the bed next to me I went in the shower and got changed into a geek top and denim shorts with my hair in a ponytail. I went downstairs and saw Sophia making my favourite breakfast pancakes with nuttella spread.
"Buenos días Alexa, feliz cumpleaños. " (good morning Alexa happy birthday) she handed me a plate and a pink gift bag
"thank you Sophia" I opened it and it was a top and some jeans with boots and a heart necklace,
"it's from all of the staff" I hugged Sophia and she kissed my cheek Sammy poked her head through the door then left I started eating my breakfast then I heared a crash coming from the stairs I ran straight there and saw Sammy on the floor with a stack of presents on the floor next to her
"help me please." I grabbed her hand and helped her up then helped her pick the presents up
"take them to the living room Lex please" Sammy says carrying her stack
