[Caption: February 22nd]
*A rooster stands on a rooftop.*
Rooster: Ki kiri kiriiiiiiii~!
*David is in his bedroom, snoring in bed.*
*The rooster peeks in through the window.*
Rooster: I said--
*David sits up, startled awake.*
*David blinks and stares off into empty space.*
David: … Eh?
*David snaps to attention.*
David: Hey, wait.
*David jumps out of the covers and onto the bed, grinning.*
David: Today’s my BIRTHDAY!!
*David gleefully rushes down the stairs.*
*David, with his tail wagging and a focused look on his face, pan-fries some eggs still in their shell. Behind him, a silhouette of his mom passes by in the hallway.*
David: Lessee, what kind of breakfast in bed should I make myself..
David’s mom: …!
*David’s mom, still in silhouette, turns to David, who grins at her.*
David’s mom: Ahh.. you’re up early, Davie!
David: ♥ Good morning, Mommy! ♥
David’s mom: Be sure to get to school on time! I love you, bye! ♥
*David’s mom walks away, waving a hand goodbye. David freezes in shock, his expression turning to dread. The eggs explode in the pan.*
*David chases after his mom with tears in his eyes.*
David: But Mommy, it’s my birthday!
*David’s mom continues to walk away.*
David’s mom: And I’ll make you a BIG dinner tonight! Be good, I love you~! ♥
*David points to himself, looking defiant.*
David: HEY, I am a big boy now, and I deserve a day off today, y’hear?
*The door clicks closed in front of David as he smiles expectantly.*
*David continues to smile at the closed door.*
[Caption: And so]
*David lumbers towards school, pouting.*
*David looks up at the school’s clock.*
*He stands, staring up at it with a serious face.*
*Lucy appears behind him.*
Lucy: Stop being such a baby and skip school already.
*David jumps back, shocked.*
