Hannah walked into her twins room.
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!" Hannah screamed as she quickly hugged her sister.
Iva shot her eyes open as she felt her sisters hooves embrace her.
"Thanks, sis... you always make me feel better." Iva muttered.
"Your welcome!!! Anything for my sister!!! Mom made a cake, and they want you to come down. Sombra is here." Hannah explained to her sister.
Iva blushed. Ever since Sombra had been reformed, she had been going out with him. Her parents knew, of course. But she still felt uncomfortable.
She finally brushed her mane, and put a bit of makeup on, and went down the stair leading to the kitchen.
Sombra was the first to approach the girl. He gave her a present, and hugged her. Iva hugged her coltfriend back. Her mom, Harper, smiled.
After singing the birthday song, the gang finally decided to eat some cake. When everypony was done eating their cake, Iva asked the question he wanted the answer to every single time her birthday came around.
"So, Mom, where's Daddy?" Iva asked.
The room became silent. Hannah looked at her mom. Harper put the tea down she was sipping onto the table, and inhaled.
"Honey, you know that your daddy is extremely busy. I am afraid he couldn't make it again... I am sorry, hun." Harper explained.
The anger of the seventeen years of being promised to come home, and not coming home, finally boiled over.
"AGAIN?!!! AGAIN?!?!?!?! FOR THE SEVENTEENTH TIME IN MY LIFE, DAD ISN'T IN MY LIFE AGAIN!!!!!" Iva screamed as she ran up the stairs into her room.
