You know what I hate?

My birthday is a day before Christmas Eve. Yep. I was born on December 23. It's not that bad. I actually like that it's on December because I love the chilly weather. I also love the warm feeling (ironic?) the holidays give me. It also means my birthday is during the winter break. ^_^
But I can be very materialistic during this time of year. But can you blame me? Christmas revolves around presents! And because my birthday is so close to Christmas, I DON'T get double presents. I just get one present for my birthday and Christmas. -sigh- If only my birthday was on another month, I would get presents for my birthday and presents for Christmas. I know, I'm greedy. >.<
But anyways, I can't really complain all that much this year. Because my adorable boyfriend made me the happiest girl on my birthday. No, he didn't give me two different presents. He just gave me one for both days. But he did give me an expensive and BEAUTIFUL heart necklace from Kay Jewelers. It brought the biggest smile on my face as soon as I saw it. But the best part was his card. To be honest, even if he didn't buy me the necklace and just gave me the card, I still would've been the happiest girl. (See, I'm not that materialistic! ^_^) Because he wrote so many sweet things in the card, and I can tell he really meant all of it. <3

You are beatuiful...

Black heels, high-waisted skirt, pink tank top. Nick stood there for what felt like an eternity, just looking in the mirror. Trembling started from his lips, his his fingers, and ended in his toes. Something stirred in him and awakened his soul. It filled him with sadness, fear, joy, and confusion. These pieces of clothing - all belonging to his older sister- were now so much more. They were now a part of him - a part of his skin. The person in the mirror looking back at him was finally the person he always knew he was born to be.

He ran the cherry colored lipstick along his lips and an unexpected tear drop fell from his eye. He softly whispered to himself, "This is me." But he wanted to yell it. He wanted to scream it and be loud enough for the whole word to hear.

But the world wasn't ready for him. So instead, Nick wiped away his tears and laughed. He laughed and laughed and danced to the music blasting inside of him. He danced away his fears. He danced away his sadness. He danced away all his feelings of being different and abnormal. He danced away all the venomous words his classmates attacked him with. But most importantly, he danced away his self loathing.

But then he saw something by the doorway that made him stop in his tracks and cut his laughter short. It was his father just standing there, watching him. His father's eyes filled with anger and shock.

And just like that, Nick's whole world fell apart.
