The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party exists in a world where an iridescent rock grows inside the chest cavity of every male on their 70th birthday. This rock, known as a pearl, grants the ability to see aspects of one's future when it is consumed. Traditionally, the pearl is given to the first grandson of each family. This story follows an entitled young man named Alex, who struggles with whether he should give the pearl to his less than fortunate sister, or succumb to greed and consume it for himself.
