The purpose of birthdays is to celebrate and enjoy oneself with loved ones, creating unforgettable moments filled with laughter and affection. Nevertheless, Max’s 16th birthday was different from what he had anticipated. He found himself alone on his special day, without any companions or warm birthday greetings to uplift his spirits. Max is a young person with ambitious goals and aspirations, who had been eagerly waiting for this significant milestone. He had envisioned a day full of merriment with his closest confidants, making memories that would last a lifetime. But sadly, fate had other plans, and he was compelled to mark the occasion in isolation.
As the stroke of midnight announced the start of his special day, Max found himself sitting alone in a poorly lit room, lost in thought about the mixed emotions he was experiencing. Despite having made plans to celebrate with close friends and family, he was left with only a small cake decked out with candles which he hoped to blow out while being surrounded by the people he cherished most. However, fate had other plans, and he was left on his own to make this simple but meaningful gesture.
