The day breaks up and shines upon the Saskatoon houses. The Saskatoon houses were tall, enormous and magnificent houses. Each house has different bright colours with lots of long walls and open spaces.
Ada is a young, kind nine-year old girl who wants to succeed in her studies in school in the little Saskatoon town. She has an older sister named Princess and younger sister, Rapunzel. She has four friends namely Bella, Amber, Hilda, and Cara. Her mother’s name is Mrs. Mayode Akinumi and she’s a teacher at Meadow Hall while her father’s name is Mr. Ade Akinumi and he’s an engineer.
Ada wakes up one morning and finds that the whole estate is awake. She gets dressed and goes down for breakfast.
“Hello, mum, dad, little sis, big sis, where are you!” shouts Ada, sad.
Everywhere seems deserted.
“Surprise!” her parents, sisters, teachers, friends and estate neighbors shout in celebrating her birthday, coming out from the hiding spots. Of course, Ada has forgotten that today is her birthday, turning ten. She blows out her ten candles.
On her way to the park to play with her friends, Ada looks up at the grey sky and wishes it would rain something fun like marshmallows instead of cold wet raindrops. Suddenly, she feels a soft plop on top of her head. She looks up and couldn’t believe her eyes. Her wish has come true!
And, not only marshmallows but snow fall down from the skies. “My wish came true and with snow!” shouts Ada happily.
“How did her wish come true so fast?” whispers Hilda to Cara.
“Today is her birthday, so it could have been a lucky day for her.” replies Cara.
“Today is my birthday and I am lucky!!” screams Ada in excitement.
Ada is excited and happy about her birthday. She loves everyone in Saskatoon city and happy playing in marshmallows and snow.
