...And as she tugged at the bright red ribbon...
*BOOM!*
A shower of confetti shot out of the colorfully wrapped box,
closely followed by a flurry of feathers and tweeting.
There was a confused pause in the room and then,
"You...you got me birds?" the little girl said the her parents, casting quizzical eyes to her mommy and daddy.
Her parents looked nervous for a moment, fearing that she might not like her special gift...
But they soon discovered that their fears were unfounded as a smile lit up their daughter's face
and she began to laugh and play with her new little friends.

Rules:
Every big thread needs a few rules so here they are!

1. Follow the ToS, duh.
2. No spamming, flaming, absurd arguing, etc. If you have a problem with me, just shoot me and a PM.
3. Do NOT quote the first page!
4. On that note, no page stretching. It's annoying.
