The day that Danny had been looking forward to was finally here...his birthday! All he had asked for was a magic kit. He had loved magic for as long as he could remember, and he had found an awesome kit on-line that he really wanted. He knew that his mom and dad were on a tight budget, but he desperately wanted this magic kit. All the way home on the school bus, he imagined himself in a long black cape performing amazing tricks. He jumped from the bus and ran like the wind all the way to his house. He opened the door and saw a brightly wrapped gift winking at him from the table. Danny held his breath as he removed the shiny silver paper. There it was - the magic kit he had dreamed of! He kissed his mom, hugged his dad, and ran to his room to let the show begin!
