The dark room was all Aiah saw when she sat up from her bed. Letting out a sigh, she slowly laid back and looked up at the ceiling. The day was supposed to be a big one, according to her father, to celebrate his birthday. Honestly, Aiah could care less about the party, knowing that many people would be there. With a groan, she turned onto her side and hid her head with her pillow, dreading the hours to come. "Why can't I just stay in my room? Or even the library?" she asked herself, the light from the window trying to break through the curtains. Aiah scanned the room with her gray eyes, taking everything in. Deciding to finally get up, she pulled the pillow off of her face and moved the blankets away from her. "This is going to be a long day." Aiah muttered, looking at the floor.
