It was a cold winter night, and I went to sleep in my room after talking to my parents. In the middle of the night, I started to hear some weird noises. I got out of my bed to look around, but could not see anything. When I was going to my bed again, I heard a thudding sound. I got scared and ran to my parents room, but they were asleep. Now, the noise was coming from the kitchen and I hurried my footsteps towards the kitchen. I could feel somebody following me. I quickly switched on the lights and all of them shouted 'Happy Birthday'. My cousins were standing there with the cake on the table and gifts in their hands to wish me birthday. My parents came from their room to wish me as well, and it was their idea to scare me. I cut the cake and we all enjoyed the snacks, and also played some games. Though it was the best birthday surprise, it was also very scary.
