cake portal


Posted on Updated on

So apparently this never got posted, but I decided to post in anyway.

This is the story for CWWC fourth challenge. I used all the prompts.

“You’re so pretty”

The cake was for my fourteenth birthday, but what my cousin Chloe meant by the words was the cake was pretty.

Not me.

Chloe has a really weird sense of humor.

It really was a pretty cake. It was in the shape of a circle, with white icing decorated with purple roses. It looked so pretty I didn’t want to eat it.

However it was my party, I had just blown out the candles and both of my friends waited for me to cut it. I handed the knife to Chloe.

“You can cut it.”

She never spoke, never made a sound, but the look in her eyes told me what was about to happen.

Or so I thought.

I thought it was going to be a balloon cake that popped when you cut it, (The actual reason I didn’t want to eat it) the same thing Chloe had made for my last three birthdays.

I was wrong.

It was a cake portal.

I stepped through it and saw a girl drawing circles on a chalkboard. I tapped her on the shoulder.

“Oh, there you are Matilda. I’ve been waiting.”

“H-how do you know my name.”

The girl laughed. “This was all planned. Now come on!”

The girl dragged me into a huge ballroom style room. A long table extended across the length of the room. Cakes and deserts lined the table. I turned around to see Chloe and the rest of my friends grinning.

“You knew?”

“Of course we knew!” Chloe announced. “We arranged it.”

“Now let’s eat!” The strange girl proclaimed.”

“Her name’s Emerald by the way.” Chloe whispered.

Emerald lighted fourteen candles, and I blew them all out, in one breath. We ate all the treats we wanted, until finally it was time to go home. Each girl picked her favorite treat to take home with us, and Emerald led us back to the room where we had come out. We stepped back through the cake.

Back at home I confronted Chloe. “This was nice and all, but perhaps next year I could have a normal cake?”
