The Birthday Challenge!

Ah, birthdays. Everyone's got one (if you don't, I'd be concerned!) and around birthday-time, admit it, we all spend some time thinking about what we want, who to invite, and on what colour paper to print the invitation. But those poor LotF boys are stuck on an island, and the only presents they'll be getting are pretty shells and a good cut of meat. (Though Simon may skip the meat in favour of pretty flowers. Who knows.)

Prompt: Birthdays. Write a oneshot of between 500 and 1,500 words in which a character of your choice is contemplating or celebrating a birthday. Reference to the birthday can be explicit or oblique, so long as it's there.

Happy writing!
