10 [forward dated slightly, to 3.24]

[Wafting over the journals today is the sultry sound of one lawyer with a very inadequate singing voice, belting along to a distant radio.]

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!
Cry if I want to!
Cryyyy if I want to!
You would cry, too, if it happened to you!

[This continues for the duration of the song, punctuated by rustling, general sounds of movement, and--after the song is over--a door slamming shut.]

It's my birthday today! I'm going to find cake in town or something. Any suggestions where I should look?

[Okay, so. He's, uhm...startled by that. Don't know why though, because...so typical of Phoenix to think its necessary to make some sort of cacophony over the journal system.

But this time, it is admittedly not as cacophonous as usual.

Back to his hotel room in the City Royale, he keeps his journal open and listens until the end. That is to say, as opposed to his usual reaction of shutting it immediately.

That's right, it's his birthday.

Not that he had actually forgotten, but he did lose track of time. Nevertheless, he was not unprepared for the occasion.

After the last disaster of seeing him again after two weeks of unspoken leave, he was convinced that Phoenix would probably not want to see him now... not to mention that it probably would ruin his birthday. He didn't want his efforts to go to waste, however...

...so he employs a messenger. He thought long and hard about how to do this - have a present delivered to him discreetly and anonymously, but decided against it. The contents of the package would have been a rather obvious giveaway, anyway. Instead, he opts for having Veritas deliver the package. He walks with her part of the way towards the castle, and sets her off before reaching the gate in an attempt to lessen the risk of being seen.

That morning, at around 10:00 am, Phoenix will have a growlithe scratching at his door. She'll be carrying a large, brown package.]

[Have you ever seen a canine do a, 'WTF' face? Because she's doing it right now.

No wonder my master thinks he's stupid.]

[See? That's better! Use that noggin of yours.

But, actually, no. Vera thinks you should stop that. Right now. Because she wants to give you a proper greeting, first. So, before you get a chance to look inside, have a growlithe tackling you to shower you with kisses. Hey, she hasn't seen you ages!]

[She's a growlithe god damn it She stops planting kisses all over his face, but doesn't move. She wags her tail, looking down at him. She barks happily.]

[She nuzzles his shoulder. Oh, yes, she has. Especially since her owner has been attempting to keep her from visiting you for the past two weeks.

But no nonono! Wait! Look at this! She hops on over to the other side of the box, places her paws up on the lid of the box, sways side-to-side...and begins to bark the, 'Happy Birthday' melody!]

[She barks. She knows the Happy Birthday theme...it's the most commonly-sung tune in the world! At least she does it to signify that the box is a birthday gift.]

[You might want to wait to look through everything, because contained within the package is a MASSIVE amount of various knick-knacks, toys, quirky books, and such things, including...oh...just see for yourself:

* A birthday card. It simply says, "Happy Birthday, Phoenix" in gold letters, and has an image of a fire bird.
* Whiskey Stones: for all your drinky-drink needs.
* Book of "Forbidden Knowledge"
* A beautiful, large wallscroll of a city scene at night with fireworks... animated fireworks.
* Wrapped in red, tissue paper, he'll find the newest copy of his favourite porno mag, 'Hot Asian Babes'.
* ...A tiny, ornate hourglass.

...Amongst many other things.]

[She barks happily again... But don't think she's going anywhere. She fully intends to spend your birthday with you. Because chilling with Edgeworth is boring as hell]
