Things were buzzing with excitement in the Group D boarding house. Streamers of orange, black, and purple hung from the ceiling and a large, homemade banner reading "Happy Birthday!" hung above the television. The coffee table was covered in sweets and snacks, most of them sporting festive halloween colors and themes. Group D was celebrating some birthdays, three in fact. The house tended to lump birthdays together and throw a big surprise party rather than celebrate each and every birthday that came along. They also threw in the nearest holiday for good measure. There were four groups: The summer group, the October group, the winter group, and the spring group. The winter group always included Christmas gifts as well, and the October group, the ones whose party was ready right, had to deal with obnoxious black and orange color schemes. The October group consisted of Cult, Holly, and Ava, who were all born near the end of October, or in Cult's case, on the end of October. However, today it was nobody's actual birthday, it was October 19, before any of the aforementioned birthdays. The lump parties were always held different days each year, so the guests of honor would have difficulty pinpointing the exact date of the parties. At the moment, all the lights in Group D dorm were out, and this wasn't unusual since it was almost ten o'clock anyway. All the members of Group D were waiting in the dark for the guests of honor to arrive, excluding Jun and Di, who had distracted the guests of honor long enough for the party to be put together. The guests were about to arrive, and when the door opened, the living area lights were flicked on as the members of Group D leapt from their hiding spaces, shouting a collective "Happy Birthday!" at the guests of honor.
