Just a quick reminder that today is thursday which means Isak and Even
had dinner with Even’s parents. And when they arrived Isak was wrapped in the
tightest and warmest hugs from Even’s mom and dad.
Both gushing about him and Liv cupping Isak’s face saying “Oh, my god! Eighteen!” as if she had known him all his life and couldn’t believe how much he had grown. Even’s dad slapped Isak’s back repeatedly and muttered his agreement as Liv proceeded to compliment him.
When Even finally manages to transition them all into the living room
Isak’s eyes fall on a delicious looking cake right next to four flutes of sparkling wine.
(Liv had called Even about what cake Isak would want which resulted in “I think he would love chocolate cake with strawberries and cherries on top.” Liv was quiet for a second and then asked, “strawberries and cherries?” with a disbelieving voice and after Even’s inquisitive “Hm?” she continued with “That’s a weird combination.” Even just shrugged, convinced that his mother would hear it in his voice when he replied, “He’s a weird boy.”)
And they stuck 18 candles into the cake and made him blow them out and wish for something (Isak wasn’t allowed to tell anyone what he wished for - which he was told by three loud speaking-over-oneanother Bech Næsheims).
Afterwards they sang happy birthday for him - of course Isak blushed a bit and said “oooh you don’t have to” but had the biggest grin on his face as they did - and Even’s heart swelled when he saw how absolutely happy Isak looked.
