Filling out birthday invitations was hard work, especially when you are Larry Butz, and you don’t like anything that involves actual work. Still, it wasn’t every day that a young man turned seven years old, thank you very much!

But he had run into an unexpected snare along the way. One of his classmates had a rather unusual name, and Larry was having some difficulties with it. Even though he had it right in front of him, he still kept messing it up, reversing the O and the E.

Honestly, Phoenix wasn’t that hard to say. Why was it so weird to spell? The rest of their classmates had relatively normal, easy names: Katie and Becky and Eric and Miles. He frowned and stared and thought (not too hard, though), and finally he decided on a solution.

This was so much easier than asking his mother for help!


The next day, everyone came into the classroom and found invitations on their desks to a birthday party to be held the coming week for one, Larry Butz. The entire class immediately began buzzing about it in excited whispers, save for Miles Edgeworth, who raised an eyebrow and asked why the S in his first name was backwards.

The only other person who looked confused was Phoenix Wright, because the envelope sitting on his desk did not say his name. Scrawled across the front in sloppy handwriting was not his name, but the word Nick.

“Err, Larry?” he said, carefully turning the envelope over in his hands.

“You’re coming, right? You’d better!”

“…is this for me?”


“But my name’s not on it.”

“Oh, you’re Nick now!” the Butz grinned. “I decided it last night. It’s easier!”

“But…my name’s Phoenix…” Phoenix said weakly, already sensing he’d lost this fight.

“Not anymore!”

PS. Thanks for reading, all! Much love!
