"Well, you are my boss. If you want to ruin the surprise and give me a raise all in one go, that’s your business." She shrugged before smiling down at her.
"This year, you’re going to get a birthday party and you’re going to get it done right.” She said, determined. “If anyone so much as thinks about pushing your face into the cake, I’ll beat the snot out of them.” She said this while punching her palm.
"Speaking of cake, I’ll be making any flavor you want~ As for gifts, I managed to snag some of your old props online. I also got you a new sound box loaded with audience noises."
"I suppose it’s a good thing I’m telling you this now, as it’ll make it easier to invite guests and give them more time to prepare."
She put her hands on her hips. “How’s that for a birthday surprise?”
Baby Doll, whose mouth had been steadily falling wider and wider open as Miriam spoke, burst into a round of applause, squealing happily. No one had ever put that much effort into, well, anything for her, at least not without her demanding it.
"Oh, Miriams, youse’s the best!" She hugged the redhead’s legs, bouncing with excitement.
"It’s gonnabe the best bir’sday evers!”
She’d had birthday parties before, small affairs usually filled with unwilling guests, since the first time she’d tried it. Always overrun with people who wanted to ruin it.
But if Miriam promised, no one would dare shove her face into the cake, or interrupt and throw her back in Arkham.
Miriam couldn’t help but giggle at Baby’s excitement. She knew how important birthdays had been to her in the past and she wanted to make this one perfect.
"I’ll make sure of it." She assured. "So, who do you want to invite?"
"Also, I was thinking we’d throw the party at Joshua’s place, since it’s bigger. He hasn’t come back yet, to my knowledge, and I still have the key. If he has come back, we’ll just tell him to beat it. How’s that sound?"
