"Maybe later Lettie." Lauren said reading a book.
"Oh yes, I would love a slice." Sasha said walking towards the table where Lettie was opening the box. Lettie smiled and Sasha walked towards her. On the icing written in chocolate was Eric’s surprised birthday party this Saturday. Come at six.
“Another surprise party for Eric wonder what will happen this time round. Last year he went drinking with his friends and never showed up until morning. The year before he went camping with his boss and workmates the previous year, what happened the previous year.” Lauren asked looking at Sasha and Lettie.”
“He stayed in the office to finish his report on a casse he was doing on Monday. He slept in the office the whole weekend.” Lettie said cutting the cake in slices.
“I do not know why the Dafoe’s will never learn why don’t they just throw him a normal party.” Sasha said making her cup of coffee.
“We better let Mrs Dafoe know we are not attending, we are going to Hawaii on Friday dam I wonder what Eric will do this year.” Lettie said having some Mocha cake with Sasha.
"Dam we are leaving tomorrow, I better start packing.” Lauren said standing up and walking to her room to start packing.
Mrs Dafoe has always failed in throwing a surprise party for Eric every year for the last five years Eric never shows up either he was caught up at work or having drinks or something of the sort. This time round. She made sure she invited all his friends as well as letting his boss know. It was going to be a big party. She baked many small cakes and sent her husband to deliver them to family friends and his boss. She had hired caterers and a DJ. She was excited.
Eric knew his birthday was coming up his mum always threw him a surprised party. He never liked the big surprise party his mum throws, half of the guest he did not know. One party his friends were not invited so he went for drinks with them. He wished he could plan his own party but his mum always planned it.
Mrs Dafoe had a few rejects from Eric’s friends who were travelling on Friday his boss was not attending and some people were not coming this year round. Many people wrote to ask her if Eric will be there. She had a funny feeling about Saturday. Two weeks ago, she told Eric to come over for dinner on his birthday and told him she was making roast and cake and she promised it will not be a surprise party and Eric agreed to come.
It was a cold Friday morning when thegirls got into the cab and headed to the airport they saw a number of their friends at the check-in including Eric.
“Eric what are you doing here.” Sasha said trying not to laugh.” Dose you mother know you are travelling.”
“No, another surprise party from her, my birthday dinner is tomorrow at first I thought my mum was having a simple dinner roast, I was excited finally something small than last weekend when I was at home and she had gone for shopping Delicious 4 U Caterers called and wanted to know how many people were coming. I cancelled the order immediately, called Sammy and told him to book my tickets to Hawaii.”
Eric got into the plan and left for Hawaii with his friends without saying anything to his mum.
On Saturday, Mrs Dafoe got more rejects from people who decided they are not attending the surprised party. When she called Delicious 4 U Caterers to reduce the number of people she was told Eric Dafoe had already cancelled the order because he was going to Hawaii. She hanged up the phone another failed surprised party.
