"Surprise." the assassin said plainly without leaving the shadows.

Morgana walks out of the kitchen, looking somewhat sour. She acknowledges the Exile with a nod, but does not say anything.

The first thing Riven spotted was Lux flashing into view as the lights snapped on. Her eyes were still adjusting to the harsh brightness when she took note of the magically appearing Crownguard. Shock was the first emotion that coursed through her system, what was going on?!

"Surprise." She said, smiling.
Shyvana was here too? Katarina had not mentioned her or Lux as far as possible guests! What happened to just the private meal at the manor?

...it occurred to Sarah just now that Riven might think she was there to collect the bounty. Hopefully her mind wouldn't go there.
Luckily for Sarah, it didn't. However, all these people were beginning to make Riven panic. Why were they all here? Had Katarina forgotten her discomfort so easily?

Riven yelped and stumbled backward, falling flat on her bum, bracing for impact with both of her hands, her eyes wide as she finally looked up to see the banners, balloons and other decorations.

The final two entrants were lost in a sea of emotions that swelled in Riven's breast. The panic of being completely surrounded and put on the spot, the shock of having something she'd mentioned to no one be displayed before all in attendance, the feeling that her trust and understanding she'd placed in Katarina had been betrayed, and yet, at the same time, she felt her lip tremble and tears well in her eyes. For them to do this for her, when she'd done nothing for them, to actively come here to show support for her, if even for some small, meaningless event like her birthday, she simply could not take all of it at once. It was too much for the introverted young woman to handle. And so, she reacted in the only way she possibly could.

She rolled herself forward, her arms wrapping around her knees as her legs curled, and her buried her face into her legs, tears streaming down her cheeks, and cried. This was not what she had been expecting at all, in many ways. It was just too much for her to express in any other way. Even as she wept and cried, she managed to speak a few words...

"W-Why...?"

Why had they done this? Why were they all here? Why had Katarina gone to such lengths to do this, and why had she seen fit to put a strain on their trust? Why, as a first action, did she do something as dishonest as this? Why did they even care to celebrate something that was so meaningless in the first place? It was the only question that she could ask that simultaneously looked for answers to all her questions. However, after a moment, she managed to choke out another set of words.

"Th-Thank you..." Her tears picked up. "Th-Thank you...so much..."

Riven was a strong and determined woman. She didn't need anything but her sword and her ideals to get her through any situation, but at times like this, that mask cracked to show the broken and fragile girl that sat beneath. She hated herself for what she had done, and yet, she continued to fight to find her own forgiveness. Until she had saved as many lives as she had taken, perhaps not even then, she would never be able to like herself. For so many to come out to wish her well, to show their support in some way...it was overwhelming, and her heart simply couldn't take the emotions that twisted into a tumultuous wave.

Evelynn momentarily looked just as upset as Riven did. The Noxian exile didn't particularly like Evelynn, and though Evelynn spent an awful lot of time around her, it was mostly because she enjoyed tormenting her. But she didn't want to make her cry, for pity's sake.

Thankfully, it seemed to be tears of joy, and Evelynn's fanged pout turned upward. "You're welcome, Riven. Man, if you react this emotionally to just the first part of a surprise party, you're going to wet yourself when the gigolo I hired jumps out of the cake." Evelynn felt glowers of disappointment around her and she immediately threw her arms out and raised her voice. "What?! I don't care if she's a shut in, she has needs too, dammit!"

Lux's heart sank at Riven's reaction. This was the first time she had tried to meet and speak to Riven, and this was not the response she was hoping for! Would this sour Riven's views on Lux from this point forward? First impressions were everything! And beyond that, to see a person cry like this, Lux just had to do something.

She got down on her hands and knees in front of Riven, face full of concern. She reached out to touch Riven, but thought against it, and retracted her hand.

"We're sorry, we didn't mean to startle you." She said quietly. "We're just here to celebrate your special day~."

Katarina did not expect this reaction... though she should have.

Bending down infront of Riven, she looked at all the guests for a moment then at the other Noxian. "Happy birthday, Riven." She spoke softly, placing a hand on Riven's shoulder. "I don't knwo why, but I felt I had to do SOMETHING for you. You're too much of a shut in as it is... I'm... s.... so... sorrr.."

Growling, Katarina could not bring herself to say that word. "Enjoy yourelf some, alright?"

Shyvana crouched down beside Katarina and hissed into her ear.

"I fixed your picture. Say it." She whispered, and stood up again. She just loosely crossed her arms, giving Riven a kind look.
