"They're coming! They're coming! Quick! Everybody hide!" Buzzy exclaimed as he, Scruffy, Bridget, and the Beatles heard the sound of footsteps. Rosie and Nicholas had just returned and were approaching the dorm. Rosie said, "Thanks for taking me on a day out at the zoo, buddy. I had a great time." Nicholas replied, "You're welcome, darling. I had a splendid time, too." Upon entering the dorm, they were quite delighted to see it decorated with the birthday streamers and balloons. Then, suddenly, their friends jumped out and shouted, "Surprise!!! Happy Birthday, Rosie!" She exclaimed as a big smile lightened up her face, "Wow! It's a surprise birthday party for me!" John replied, "That's right, mate! We decorated the dorm just for you." Rosie remarked, "Aw! How sweet of you all. I love them." Paul said, "We know you would, dear." "And I baked this cake for you with lots of love!" Added George as he carried and placed it on the table. Rosie replied, "Thank you so much, George! It's very lovely." George responded, "My pleasure, darling." Nicholas said, "Well, what are we waiting for? Let's get the party started!" Everyone replied, "Yeah, yeah, yeah!" And so, Rosie's friends sang Happy Birthday for her, and she blew her candles and made a wish. Afterwards, Rosie opened her presents and they each had their share of the cake. They also played some fun games and had a little quiz contest. When the party was over, Rosie thanked her friends once again for making her twenty-first birthday a very memorable one.
