An Unexpected Gift

Today is my birthday which means there are exactly 2 weeks until Christmas. The fact that I get to meet my cousins makes it my favorite holiday because we are not able to see each other that much. However when we see each other it is always the best days of my year. We always start making a list of what we are going to do from the beginning of the year and that’s why there are more than hundred things to do. There isn’t any second to rest. This year we were going to start with giving cookies to everyone we see in the neighborhood but everyone went on vacation so we had to cross that off the list.

As I was cleaning my room for our guests, I heard a sound from my window. I went near it and saw my boyfriend waving at me. I couldn’t breathe for a moment because he flew from Florida just to see me. I couldn’t shout because we were in a long distance relationship that my parents didn’t approve of. I went downstairs and opened to door for him. He hugged me really tight I thought my heart was going to explode. We slowly went upstairs without making any noise. I was really happy that he came but I didn’t know how he was going to spend the holiday with us when my relatives come. I am just going to hope no one will snitch. He hid in my closet when I went out to get gifts and fruits.

As I  was going back home a car pulled up in front of me. I got scared for a moment but then I saw that it was my cousins. They were all so grown up. 2 of them were going to university and 1 one of them has just finished high school. I also finished high school so we understand each other easily there is not much of an age gap. We walked together to my house and then ate dinner. It was time to open our gifts. It is a tradition for me to open my present first so I opened my present. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a picture of me and my boyfriend on a crystal. That picture was his favorite picture of us so he glued it there. That’s when I realized how shocked my parents were because they didn’t know about us.My boyfriend cam downstairs and told everyone we were dating.
