“Mommy!, Mommy!” the tingling voice of your daughter rung through your ears, her small hand gently tapped your pink cheeks. You slowly opened a heavy eyelid while the sun strikes your face scrunching up a little.
“How did you get in here baby?” you asked and looked around the wide bedroom. “Where’s your father?” you blinked at her while she blinked her innocent eyes back. You noticed a dust of white powder on her hair and face. “What happened to you? “ you wiped her cheek.
Stuttering she answered, “He let me in to wake you up, mommy and I’m helping daddy” she grinned showing her 2 pearly whites and her adorable dimple popping out from her tinted cheek then she ran out of the room shouting ‘daddy’ stumbling with her tiny steps.
“Daddy she’s awake! Mommy she’s awake hurry!!!” you smiled at her oyfulness.
“Oh right I’m coming princess!” You heard Myungsoo’s faint voice downstairs and a squealing Soojae.
You were about to get off the bed when you heard your husband and daughter singing.
“Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you.” You gasped at scene, Myungsoo carrying a cake and Soojae holding 3 pieces of roses in her hands smiling widely. You glanced at the clock on the nightstand ‘and searched for the date, it was your birthday indeed.
“Hey babe, Goodmorning Make a wish” Myungsoo smiled.
“I totally forgot that it was my birthday today” you mumbled.
“Roses for you mommy” Soojae placed a smooch to your cheeks.
“thank you baby” you kissed her forehead and smiled sweetly. Now you understand why your daughter have marks of flour on her face. She helped her father bake the cake which tastes simple. Not too sweet not too delicious either. JUST SIMPLE. And you like it that way.
“My arms are about to fall off babe” Myungsoo teased. You chuckled. You close your eyes and made a wish and blew the candle.
‘Please let us have a happily ever after’
But as we all know, it’s always calm before the storm.
