It was Meriel’s first birthday; all her family and friends were gathered to help her celebrate. Rhys had done himself proud with the party food and everyone was having fun with dancing and party games.
Meriel was almost buried under all her gifts, happily tearing off the paper and waving it around, giggling. No doubt she’d play with her new toys later, once the crinkly novelty of their wrapping wore off.
Finally, the big moment came.
“Time to cut the cake!”
Jack made his first cut, the table tipped, and the cake slid off, right on top of Nosy.
