Alice sat on her bed, it was just two more minutes then she would turn eighteen. Her birthday started 4.34 in the morning, even though everyone else would give her congratulations later in the day she always was up on the moment her birthday arrived. She didn't care that she was tired, it was her birthday and even though no one else celebrated it exactly the time she was born she could still do so. She watched the clock carefully, one minute left. A cake stood beside the clock and she was ready to eat it as fast as the clock turned 4.34, she wouldn't wait a second longer or a second shorter. She couldn't possibly know that this birthday wouldn't be like all the others, she didn't know that today would be the day she encountered something that would change her life forever. For know she was just a normal high schooler, but for how long would destiny let her be so called normal? Thirty seconds left. The time seemed to go slower and slower as the time for her eighteens birthday soon would arrive. She looked at the cake and then at a present that were to the right of it. Her parents always put one present for her to open in the morning and another that she could open when she got hom from school. Ten seconds, soon it would be here, Alice would soon become an adult. Because that was what it meant to become eighteen, right? you became an adult, like magic was changing you to suddenly grow up. Five, four, three two and one. Her eighteenth birthday had now arrived.
