This is Travis, a 14 soon to be 15 year old freshman who doesn't have the best attitude. Due to losing his grandpa a couple years ago.
Travis lives with his parents and grandmother. So after school everyday Travis comes home to help take care of his grandma, since his grandpa isn't alive to take care of her anymore.
One day in November close to Travis's birthday, he went to basketball practice remembering it was his best friend Chad's birthday. There was a cake and everyone was singing "Happy Birthday"
Travis was remembering that his birthday was in a couple days, reminding him that is Grandpa is gone. Causing him to get over whelmed with emotions of sadness as well as anger, he storms out of the gym, with Chad following behind him.
"Hey, what's wrong?" asked Chad. "This! All of it! The cake, the singing, this stupid month and stupid birthday's!" Shouted Travis.
Then Travis left to go home, leaving Chad speechless about what happened.
After Travis arrived home, he went straight to his room room avoiding everyone and everything. He layed there wondering why his birthday would be so terrible, just like any other day. Eventually he gave up, falling asleep.
