Michael was a cheerless, self-absorbed teenager. He only cares about how known he is at school. He is rude to anyone that is not popular except his best friend, Emily. They have known each other since they were four and been close ever since.
When Michael was a kid, he was the sweetest boy to everyone. Emily missed those times with him. Her and Michael went to a local restaurant every day during the summer when they were kids. Michael would greet everyone when they walked in, and when someone was lonely, he'd sit with them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL!
Unfortunately, when Michael was little, he threw a party for his tenth birthday at the diner. No one showed up except for Emily. Michael then decided to make himself known so people would come to his parties.
Even though Emily is not very popular, she's stayed loyal to him. Instead of going to the diner, where Michael has bad memories, they go on a walk during the summer, where Michael talks badly about everyone he's not friends with.
The next day, it was Michael's seventeenth birthday. Emily came up with a special present to remind Michael of who he used to be. She took him to the diner, where he hasn't been in seven years. She got all of his friends to come.
Michael was overwhelmed with emotions! He was so thankful for Emily. She talked to him about how he used to say hi to everyone and sit with the people who came alone. Michael then began to feel bad about all of the people he'd been mean to at school.
