“Demi! Are you ready? Selena and Miley just pulled up.”
“I’m on my way down mom. I just got to pick the right sweater in case it gets cold.”
Demi holds up the blue hoodie and stands in front of the mirror. She smiles and starts to head downstairs.”
“So mom, are you going to tell me where I’m going?”
“Sorry honey the girls want it to be a surprise. They want you to enjoy your 16th birthday. It’s not everyday a girl turns 16. Now be sure to tell Selena to be careful. She’s only had her license for about a month now.”
“Mom, relax you know how safe Selena is about everything. I’ll see you and dad later tonight.”
Demi gave her mom a kiss on the check and went out the door. Selena and Miley were waiting for her outside in Mandy’s car. Demi got into the car and the girls gave her big hugs.
“Happy birthday Dems!”
“Thanks girls, so are you going to tell me where we are going now?”
“Just put on this blindfold. We promise you you’ll love it.”
Miley ties the blindfold around Demi’s head and Selena pulls out of the driveway. As they are driving along Demi brings up an interesting conversation.
“So I had the dream again.”
“The one were you are flying? You really should stop thinking to much into such a dream. People dream about flying all the time.”
“Maybe Miley, but how many enjoy their flying experience in the back of a golden chariot pulled by flying horses? It’s just a little too weird for me. It keeps reminding me of those stories we learned in English class about Greek and Roman mythology.”
“See, that’s probably what put the idea in your head. That dumb English class put crazy ideas in your head.”
“You would think so, but I have been having this dream even before we took that class. It’s not a bad dream it’s just weird. I do think it’s kind of cool how every time I have that dream I’m flying over a different part of the world.”
“Okay Demi we’re here!”
Selena pulls the car over into a parking lot, and Demi yanks off the blindfold.
“Oh my God! A Circus! This is amazing. How did you girls find out about this?”
“Miley saw a flyer and told me about it. We thought you would really like it.”
“Like it? I think I love it. It looks really cool. Come on let’s go get tickets.”
The girls walked up to the ticket counter and standing behind it was a handsome guy who looked like he was in his late teens early twenties.
“Hello ladies. The tickets are 10 dollars a piece. The show starts in an hour but feel free to check out our side acts and game booths while you wait.”
“Listen, it’s my friend’s birthday. Do you guys run any birthday specials?”
“Well for three beautiful women like yourselves I’m sure I can do something. How about I’ll let you in for free but you have to check out the Oracle. She’s our resident fortune-teller.”
“That sounds amazing, and very sweet of you. Thanks”
“No problem, I hope you enjoy your time here at The Jonas Family Circus. My name is Joe. Tell the Oracle I sent you and maybe she’ll cut you a break also.”
The girls all give Joe a big smile and walk onto the Circus grounds. Joe watches them walk away thinking to himself how nice the short one’s butt was.
