Giggles. Today I am celebrating my birthday. On the table, there is cyber three layer chocolate cake. It’s more like a torte. There’s also an assortment of deserts including cheesecake and a Boston Creme Pie.
Need real cyber food? There’s shrimp cocktail, chilled crab claws, chilled lobster, lobster bisque, and grilled shrimp. For the non-seafood folks there is prime rib, grilled chicken and chicken parmasan, steamed vegetables and tempura of every kind.
A band comes in and sets up. Going over to them, I ask, “Pardon, who are you?”
The band leader answers, “We’re Crypt 20. We’ve been hired by King Max to make sure this party swings until dawn.”
“Ok.” What else could I say! I welcome the guests as they arrive.
Laura and David come over to me. Laura hands me a platter of Jello shots which I but on the bar with the bar tender. They each hug me, then David hands me a package. Then David hands me a package. “This is from Max. He will be coming later on.”
I open the package and there is a leather journal and a little vial.
“That’s for your writing, and that’s a vial of his saliva. It got back to him that you are dangerously allergic to penicillin, and have been ill for weeks. He wishes you to recover as you are important to him and all the Arnhem Knights. His exact words were, “Please, just drink it, Lily. It has a short shelf life.” (The supernatural community refer to me as Lily Snow.)
I usually avoid this, but I’ve been feeling so horrible. I drank it down and found it warming my body all over. WOW! My energy level just rose about 200 percent as well.
“I’d like to thank, Max.”
“You look brighter already,” Laura said.
Then I noticed some werewolves were arriving and putting out flower arrangements. I didn’t order this.
Regina and Gregor, my favorite half leprechaun and half elf and her favorite shapeshifter have arrived. “I hope you don’t mind, Lily. Regina and I thought it would enliven the party.
The flowers are all tropicals and were flown in for the occasion. It’s not
every day when our Lily has a birthday. Happy Birthday and many more!”
Just when I least expect it, George and Trevor come in with a
crowd after them. They brought a chocolate fountain and had help to
set it up on a table.
The gift table is really piling up and

Max walks into the room. Evelyn goes to talk to her sister. He walks directly up to me and says, “Lily, may I have this dance?”
How cool is this! I’m dancing with a king!
