The Haunted House

What was that?! Bob was as tough as nails, in the old haunted house while my hair was standing on end. We had just started hanging out again after our paths crossed at the football game. Things had been going so well so I had planned a surprise party for his birthday. I bent over backwards getting ready for the party making sure everything was spectacular. This party was going to make a splash. I had organised a jumping castle, chocolate fountain and a DJ. Bob arrived, everything was ready to go. He opened the door and we called out SURPRISE! Bob turned to me and told me to take a hike. I ran out with my tail between my legs, devastated at what had happened. I know life is not a bed of roses but I didn't expect him to treat me like that. I feel like I was hitting my head against a brick wall. I didn't know how I was going to make ends meet after I had spent all my money on throwing what I thought was the most amazing party ever. I knew my friendship with Bob was over, I had to pick myself up and move on.
