Saying that it had been a while since Elena had last had a birthday party could only be classed as a lie. Not even an understatement, just a blatant untruth, the girl had never had a birthday party in her life.
So she’d written a little list of all the people she enjoyed talking too: Bella, Ruby, Hugh, Elena, and even Professor Risa, and sent out a stack of happy looking invitations with silly little cutout stickers she’d found in an arts and crafts box hiding backstage at the Rehearsal Room. Granted, she hadn’t actually expected anyone other than Bella to join in the festivities, and so was extremely confused when almost all the invitations came back agreeing to come.
‘Is this what Griffith was meant about real friends?’ Elena thought to herself as she put the plate of sandwiches out, the house elves had decided that there was no way the girl was just serving cake and had showed up with a couple of plates of food earlier on. As well as some chairs that she was extremely thankful for, she hadn’t managed to think that far ahead.
The setup was finished, the guests were set to arrive soon, and so Elena sat down in one of the comfier chairs and curled up with a rather interesting book on dragons.

Ari grunted in amusement. “A silver on ten minutes,” he countered.
“I’ll bet you both a gold coin that she kills him,” Valek said.
