The Surprise Shower

If you missed Part 1, here is a link Now what??

They all stood in front of the door of the mysterious house reading the note that had been under the doormat. Tink was holding the key which had been under the mat as well. In the note it has said that he was supposed to be the first one to walk in the door. 

“I wonder why you have to walk in the door first.” said Snowball. 

“Me too!” said the others, and Tink’s face grew red. 

“I am not sure that I want to walk through the door first. Who knows what is in there?” 

“That is true, a strange bird could come flying out and attack you!” said Snowball. 

“Or perhaps a hippo!” said Alabaster. 

Everyone gave Alabaster a strange look. “A hippo?” said Jinx. 

“Hey, you never know!” replied Alabaster, looking sheepish.  

Tink shook his head as he put the key in the door. What did he have to be nervous about? He was letting his imagination get the best of him. 

He turned the lock, and said “Here I go!” The others stood back a little as they watched him. 

Tink walked in and “KERPLUNK!” a large bucket fell on him dumping out a ton of confetti all over him! He stood there in shock as the others were laughing. 

They all noticed the banner stretched across the room at the same time. “Happy Birthday Tink!” 

“Hey, we didn’t know it was your birthday!” Snowball said. 

“Well apparently Candy Cane found out.” said Tink. 

“Ahh! Santa must have told her, Santa knows everything!” Jinx said. 

Spying the large Double Chocolate birthday cake on the counter, they all headed over to help themselves. 2 pots of coffee were beside it. 

“Wow! This is one BIG cake and look at ALL the candles, how old are you Tink?” asked Snowball. Tink’s face flushed once again. 

“I am not sure if we should light all of them,  look how many candles there are! Is it safe?” Snowball asked. 

“Sure!” said Jangle, “Here, I will light the match” and he picked up the matches that were lying on the counter. 

After all the candles were lit, they told Tink to take a deep breath for there were soooo many candles. 

Tink took a deep breath as he made a wish and then he started to blow. He blew as hard as he could, but there were just too many candles and it started getting smoky!

“SPLASH!!!” Tink and his friends were suddenly getting rained upon inside! That is when they noticed the sign on the stove saying about how there was an indoor sprinkler system installed for fire protection. 

It didn’t take long at all for the candles to go out and the smoke to go away causing the sprinklers to stop. The friends all looked at each other and were speechless for a moment as they were dripping wet. Then Snowball spoke up. 

“Do you think Candy Cane knew about this sprinkler system?” 

Alabaster said, “Do you think that she purposely put that many candles on the cake knowing that it would set off the sprinkler system?” 

“Nah!” Jinx replied , “but yet….” and they all were thinking. Suddenly they were startled by a sound. Turning their heads they looked out the window and saw Dinosauris landing on the top of the hill. They were ready to go, they had some questions for Candy Cane!

  1. This story was dripping with surprises. So, is it really Tink’s birthday? He just mentioned to me today that he’s 63. That’s a lot of candles. He’s really up there. I mean, he makes the hills look young, and the trees look like saplings.

    Happy birthday, Tink!
