Official Birthday


"Blow out the candle, Face."

Face regarded the cake with one small blue candle in the middle of it.

"Candle? Singular?"

"Well, this is kind of your first birthday." Murdock said. "Richard Bancroft's first birthday anyway."

Face frowned. He'd liked the idea when Murdock proposed celebrating his newly discovered 'real' birthday. But now the day had come around he wasn't that bothered. It was just another date on the calender. Real it may be, but it just didn't feel like his made up birthday felt. Though that didn't feel the way it used to either. Felt... scarier.

"Face, you're like the Queen of England. She has this 'official birthday', when a few hundred guys in tall hats march around and then there's her actual birthday, when she does all the normal birthday stuff people do."

"Eats too much and gets drunk?"

"Well maybe not. But what I'm saying is you could have one birthday where you throw a big party for people you want to impress. And the other you can do whatever you want with people you actually like." He smiled. "You know, us."

Face smiled. He liked that. The question was, which birthday did he use as his official one and which his real one? He looked at the cake with the lonesome candle. Don't make a wish, make a choice.

He blew out the candle.
