The Birthday Surprise

Robert felt nervous. Today was his birthday and he wondered if anyone would remember that it was his special day. It was time to celebrate as he turned 13 years old, a teenager at last! He waited anxiously for the postman. Finally, at 11am, someone knocked loudly at the door. Robert opened it and found a strange-looking parcel on the doorstep. It was covered in red paper, a funny oblong shape, with a blue ribbon wrapped all around it. He could not wait to open it and pulled the paper off excitedly. Inside was a skateboard with shiny, flashing wheels. The card inside read, ”Happy Birthday son! Love mum and dad.” He could not wait to show his friends.
