I am Josie Cooper and I live in London with my parents. Today, it's my 18th birthday. That means I'm an adult now. I always thought that being an adult is so exciting. You can hang out with friends and stay up late. You don't have to ask for permissions from parents. It's really exciting, right? Well, I'm getting ready to go to Church with my parents. That's all we do on birthdays. I'm really sick of it. We do nothing except going to church and pray.
Ruby: Josie. Come downstairs. We are getting late.
Josie: Wait a minute. I'm coming.
My mom, Ruby Cooper, a housewife. My mother is like a friend to me. If ever I had a hole in my boat, she was the one who covered it up with her hands. But my dad...
James: Why are you so reckless all the time, Ruby? I just can't handle your stupidness.
Josie: Dad! please, it's my birthday today. I'll help mom clean up the mess.
he is not a good person. He always quarrel with mom. Last week, I saw him hanging out with a woman at the cafe but I didn't tell my mom about this. If I tell her, she would be miserable.
Ruby: Sorry, Josie. Your dad is not in a good mood. Don't be mad at him, okay?
Josie: Mom, you don't have to hide his mistakes everytime. I'm an adult now. I can see that he just doesn't care about us.
Ruby: No, he loves you very much and cares about you.
Josie: Oh yeah? he didn't even wish me on my birthday.
Ruby: He probably forgot to do so. He has a bad memory.
Josie: A dad who can't even remember his daughter's birthday. He must be really caring, right?
Ruby: It's not like that....
Josie: Stop it, mom. Once I find an apartment. Me and you will move there.
James: Are you two gonna come or not?
Ruby: Coming. Let's go, Josie.
*looking out of the car's window*
I wish I had a good dad like others. I see others going to school with their father. I sometimes envy them. I know deep down my mom is not happy also but she doesn't want our family to rip off. I think that's why she bears everything.
Ruby: Come on, Josie. Get off the car.
Josie: Dad, you're not coming?
James: Go ahead you two. I've a call to attend.
Ruby: Come my baby, we both will go in there.
Josie: Yes, mom.
It must be that woman's call. I hate it when her face pops up into my mind. On my every birthday, dad does the same thing again and again. Last year, he even spoiled my birthday party. He was drunk and made a scene in front of my friends. He even scolded mom as always when everyone was there. I just hate him.
*Clashed with someone*
Josie: Oh, I'm so sorry. I was not paying attention.
Ryan: It's alright. *running*
Josie: Hey! you dropped something.
He ran off like that. I can't understand ,what this thing is? It's round like a ball and has a golden colour.
Ruby: Josie, come here.
Josie: Coming, mom.
*puts the ball in the bag*
Josie: Jesus, I pray for my mother's happiness. I hate my dad. He makes my mom sad . He even doesn't care about us. Bless me, God, so that I can own an apartment soon and take my mom away from him.
After coming back from the church, I just go to my room and read books for the whole day or eat some sweets. Why on my special day, I don't feel special at all? It sucks.
Ryan: Hey, girl.
Josie: omg who are you? How you entered my room? *shouting*
Ryan: Shhh...you are shouting too loud. It hurts my ears.
*puts his hand over josie's mouth*
Ryan: You stole my key. Give it back to me.
Josie: What the hell? I didn't steal any key.
Ryan: You did steal it. Just hand in it, girl. Otherwise, I've my own ways to get it back. *smirking*
Josie: I don't know, what are you talking about?
He is coming closer to me. What is he going to do? He just put his arms around my waist. I'm falling on the bed.
He is getting closer and closer. I get a pillow in my hand. I throw it towards him.
