    Happy Birthday, Marissa!

    DATE: APRIL 2ND, YEAR 7
    TIME: 6:30 PM


    Spenst and Ola's House:

    Olabisi peered outside through a tiny parting in the curtains. She wondered why the taxi driver was taking so long to leave. Oh. The mummy let out an annoyed groan. Of course, he was on his phone. Typical. Though much less audibly so, she could tell her Ectonurite partner was annoyed as well. His tail twitched, and his claws lightly dug into the upholstery of the sofa. Finally, the taxi had left with their monster friend in at. The bandaged alien sighed in relief.

    "Alright, they're gone now," she announced.

    On any other day they would have all carpooled together, but today was different. Today was a special day. It was Marissa's birthday! Spenst had cleared it with Knock Out on how he and Ola would be arriving a bit later than the monstress today. There was no way they could just ride together and bring the cake with him. The alien couple wanted it to be a surprise!

    The mummy wandered over to the fridge, making absolutely sure that the cake was still in one piece. Fortunately it was, and it looked delicious. Lunette really did outdo herself with this one! She couldn't wait to get a piece of the delectable-looking desert. But alas, when they arrive at the Drive-In, Olabisi will still have to wait. Marissa is entitled to the first piece. It is her birthday, after all!

    "You think we should call our cab now?"

    "Yeah, I think it's safe now," Spenst responded. Already his girlfriend had whipped out her phone and started dialing the number.

    Just like with Olabisi, the ghostly alien could not resist the urge to check on the cake himself. Of course, just as before, it was still in one piece, looking as savory as ever. If he recalled correctly, it was supposed to be one of those vanilla funfetti cakes with all the colors baked into it. A lively cake for a lively occasion!

    "It's on its way now," the mummy said, hanging up.

    "Great!" Now they just had to wait for their cab.

    Eventually their ride arrived. Quickly but carefully Ola removed the cake from the fridge and carried it to the taxi. Spenst followed closely behind.

    CURRENT TIME- 7:05 PM


    Spenst looked down at his phone and he and Ola pulled into the Drive-In. The alien specter was pleasantly surprised. He had thought that they would be much later than this. The mummy paid their driver and they stepped out of the cab, birthday cake in tow. Already they could see Marissa at the concession stand. Currently she had her back turned to them, checking on one of the drink machines. Cautiously they snuck up behind her.

    "Happy birthday, Marissa!" the both of them exclaimed in unison.

    The way Marissa dressed made it no secret to anyone around her what day it was today. On her uniform she wore a large "birthday girl" button attached to her uniform that lit up when pressed, and atop her head was an extravagant birthday hat. The monstress really hoped that Knock Out wouldn't mind. So far he didn't seem to care, though. As she worked on the drink machine, the furry monster couldn't help but wonder why Ola and Spenst couldn't take the cab with her today. Her questions were answered as two familiar voiced bellowed out "happy birthday" behind her.

    Marissa turned around and was completely delighted by what she saw. Her friends carried with them a colorful cake with the words "Happy Birthday Marissa" written on it in icing. Already it was looking like tonight was going to be a wonderful night.

    "Oh you guys!" she exclaimed happily, pulling them both into a tight hug. "You're the best! Haha, I was wondering if there was any reason in particular that Knock was playing Airplane tonight. Did you tell him it was my favorite movie, Spenst?"

    The Ectonurite nodded.

    "I really love you guys."

    Knock Out had been outside, putting the finishing touches on making sure the place was ready to open. Lawn chairs in the seated area were given a cleanse with an antibacterial wipe, removing any leftover residue from the previous night. Tiny bits of trash were plucked, half buried in the sand, but overall the place was looking pretty good for tonight! It was something of a special night, though not for the usual reasons. There was no holiday for him to use for drawing in crowds, no. Olabisi and Spenst had enlightened him to today being the birthday of his employee, Marissa. The concept of a birthday was still a little strange, but he had no reason to decline their idea of showing one of the monster's favorite movies! It wasn't like he really had any concrete ideas for tonight anyway.

    Satisfied, the Cybertronian stepped inside of the concession stand area to see how things were going and smirked to himself at what he saw. Olabisi and Spenst had arrived with a colorful birthday cake for Marissa to enjoy. The birthday girl herself was wearing a little pin and at tat designated her as such. The mech saw no issue with her wearing those additions to her outfit. Stepping closer so that he could look over the cake, he redirected his bright red optics to his worker and smiled to her. "Happy birthday, Marissa. I take it you approve of tonight's movie selection~?" He chuckled lowly, already knowing the answer.

    "Here Marissa," Olabisi said, reaching into her purse. From inside she pulled out a colorful slip and handed it to the monstress. Though it took a bit of digging, it remained mostly unwrinkled. "We also got you a card. Go on, open it!"

    As Marissa cut open the slip with her claw, the mummy's mind drifted back to just a few days ago when she and Spenst were looking for this card. It took them much longer than it really should have to find one that properly conveyed what all they wanted to say to their monster friend on her birthday. Cards tended to have some pretty generic messages. Even with this one, she and the Ectonurite still felt the need to add their own little personalized message at the bottom.

    "Oh, and we also have this candle," Spenst added. He took it out of one of his pockets, along with a lighter. It was just a singular candle, but it was big, fancy, and definitely got the point across just fine. "You mind if we let her blow out the candle, Knock? We'll be careful. I promise we won't burn the concession stand down!"

    Because really, who has a birthday cake without least one candle to blow out. That was supposed to be part of the fun, wasn't it? As such, the ghostly alien really hoped that his manager wouldn't mind. He doubted the mech would, though. He was cool like that, usually.

    "Oh my gosh, I'd love to blow out the candle!" Marissa exclaimed happily, clapping her paws. Her fluffy tail wagged about excitedly behind her. "Go ahead and put it right there on the counter!"

    The fluffy monster's friends gladly obliged. As quickly as it was placed on the counter, the cake's plastic cover was removed. Already Ola was annoyedly swatting some greedy bugs away with her bandages. Spenst put the candle in the center of the cake, lit it, and gave her the go-ahead. Eagerly, Marissa gave it her all as she blew it out. Though it was just one candle, she always loved to go the extra mile with things like this.

    Oh, a card! Knock Out leaned back slightly, crimson optics taking in the details of this little exchange. Birthday parties weren't exactly something he'd been a part of on Cybertron...so the organics presented the birthday person with a cake and gave them a card. Strange tradition, what was inside the card? Money? A message? Could they not just speak the message? Hm... A metal brow rose curiously but he allowed these events to happen without a witty remark. Spenst soon grabbed his attention with the weirdest request. "A candle?" His brow rose higher and higher.

    "The fact that you have to promise me something like that doesn't inspire much confidence... But I'll allow it! If anything goes wrong, I'll just deduct it from your paycheck!" The mech snarked with a grin. Marissa became oddly excited about the prospect of blowing out a single candle, even her tail was wagging like a dog's! He watched the cake be set down, the candle stuck on top and lit, and then the monster used every breath in her lung to blow it out. Knock Out glanced around the guests before raising both servoes in the air to give Marissa a small round of applause. He was...not sure what you do after somebody blows out a candle! Hopefully this would be appropriate enough.

    Marissa flashed a toothy grin as Ola and Spenst rang out in a Happy Birthday duet. The monstress never really knew what exactly she was supposed to do while everyone sang happy birthday. At one point, when she was still a child, the furry monster would just sing along with everyone. But she was naive back then, and eventually grew to realize how awkward it felt.

    After her friends gave her a round of applause, Spenst finally asked her the golden question, that being: "Where do you want me to cut it?" Marissa licked her lips. Finally!

    "I think that's a good spot," she replied, pointing to it.
