Today is my birthday and all I wanted to do was stay in bed. But the boys surprised me and they woke me up by singing. I'm going to sound totally selfish to say I was annoyed that One Direction sang happy birthday to me in bed. But considering yesterday's events I deserved to be a Debbie Downer. Niall was even there, but he stood the farthest away. When they were singing I just stared at Niall. I think he was a little uncomfortable, but I didn't care. He should be next to me holding my hand and kissing me, but instead he's out of reach.
"Thank you guys so much, you're the best!" I said trying to act happy.
"What do you want to do today before your party?" Harry asked.
"Um what party?" I asked.
"Tonight we're going to a club and there's going to be a bunch of people there to celebrate!" Zayn said.
"But I don't know anyone?" I said confused.
"Well they know you! And you can just stick with us the whole time anyway." Louis said.
"Right." There was an awkward silence for a few moments.
"PRESENTS!" Louis shouted.
"You guys didn't have to get me anything, seriously." I said sitting up fully.
"Of course we did love!" Liam said. "Mine first!"
"Sure Liam." He handed me a bag and I reached inside and there was a card with a beautiful message. Also was a couple of things wrapped. It was Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, Aladdin, Hercules, The Lion King, Pocahontas, and Beauty and The Beast all on DVD. All my favorite Disney movies. I kissed him on the cheek, "Thank you so much Liam, these are all my favorites!"
"I know, we'll have to do a movie night soon babe."
"Of course!" I said with a huge smile.
"Me next please!" Louis shouted and handed me a big box.
"Okay!" I unwrapped the box and it had six picture frames in it. There was one of me and each of the boys, and then a group picture. I think I looked at the one of Niall and I the longest. I hope no one really noticed. "Wow Louis, this is so cute, I love all these pictures. Thank you so much!" I said hugging him.
"You're welcome, I think they would be a nice touch to your new room!"
"I agree, who's next?" I said jokingly.
"You need to open mine." Zayn said.
"I need to? Alright!" Zayn handed me two bags. In one of them was filled with make up and in the other was hair things and products.
"I kind of snooped around to see which brands you used, hope you don't mind." He said shyly.
"No it's fine, I love ALL of this. Thank you so much!" I hugged Zayn. "I can't wait to use it!"
"Here!" Harry said throwing me a small box. I shook it. "Just open it loser."
"Feeling the love." I said sarcastically. I opened the box and inside was a lanyard. But it was bedazzled and had cute things on it too. "What are all these keys?"
"Well, there is one to here, and then each of their flats and..." Harry began.
"A new car!" He yelled.
"Yeah, you'll need one and I think this one will suite you nicely. It's a black 2013 two door BMW with a sunroof." He explained.
"Harry, I can't take a car, that's way too much."
"No you're taking it. That way I won't have to drive you around all the time."
"Shut up!" I said laughing. I gave him the biggest hug and kissed him on the cheek. "Thank you so so so much!"
"You're welcome babe. You deserve it too." He added.
Everyone looked at Niall. "Oh shit! I left mine at my place. I can run and get it if you want, I'll just be a minute." He said nervously.
"No, Niall it's fine. I can go over later if you want."
"Yeah, that works too." He said.
"So what do you want to do today?" Harry asked.
"Honestly? Sleep, I think I'm coming down with a cold from the rainy weather."
"Sleep is not an option!" Louis exclaimed.
"I guess you guys can take me to lunch too."
"Lunch it is! With a mini tour or your new city." Liam said.
"Thanks guys. But let me sleep a little more and then I'll start getting ready."
"Yes birthday princess." Louis said bowing.
"Very funny Louis, now sho sho, I need my beauty sleep." I said mocking him.
As the boys left Niall was about to shut the door when I waved him over. "Pst, Niall." I whispered.
"Yeah?" He whispered back.
"You don't have to give me anything for my birthday, I wouldn't feel right taking anything from you."
"No, I really want you to have it. Can you come over before we go out to lunch, I kinda wanted to give it to you in private anyway."
"Sure Niall." I said with a small smile.
He smiled back and shut the door. I slept for like another 3 hours, so it was about noon when I woke up. I was eager to start getting ready so I could see Niall before lunch. But I was also nervous because I didn't know how to act around him. I showered, blow dried my hair, did my make up, then curled my hair. I got dressed in dark wash jeans and a black sweater with black boots. I put on a bunch of little necklaces and a butterfly two finger ring. I was about to walk out when Harry stopped me.
"Where do you think you're going?" He asked.
"To Niall's, to get my present." I said innocently.
"That better be it."
"Yes dad!" I said sarcastically then walked out the door.
I walked over and hesitated before I knocked. I was about to knock and then Niall opened up the door. He pulled me in without saying a word and hugged me tight and kissed the top of my head.
"Thanks Niall." I said looking down.
"What's wrong?" He asked lifting my head up.
"I just pictured my birthday different, that's all."
"So did I. That's why I bought you what I did."
"What is it?"
"Hold on, stay here, don't move." Niall disappeared into his bedroom and came back out with a small red bag. The bag had a glossy effect to it. "Here Lisamarie. Happy birthday, I love you." He said as he handed me the bag and also a card.
I opened the card first and it was one of those funny singing ones. And we laughed along to it. But also inside the card was a picture of us. It was when we went to Ireland and Maura took the picture. I was sitting on Niall's lap and our foreheads were pressed together and we were just smiling looking into each others eyes. We thought we were alone so we didn't even know she took the picture until she sent it to Niall after we left. Also inside the card was a letter. I decided to read it now. It said:
Dear Lisamarie, You are so beautiful. I can't even stand it, I love whenever I can just stare at you and admire everything. I could go on and on about every little detail of your face. But I won't, I don't want to bore you babe. You're my world now, you drive me crazy when we argue or don't get along. And you drive me crazy just from a kiss. But I think we fit together perfectly like two puzzle pieces. I just want to say I love you, I can't imagine my life without you at this point. I hope you have a fantastic nineteenth birthday. Love, Niall.
My eyes were a little watery, he clearly wrote this a while ago. I reached inside the bag and pulled out a long velvet box. I opened it up and inside there was a silver necklace, with a silver heart locket. I opened it up and inside was the picture of Niall and I that was in the card. On the back it was engraved 'two puzzle pieces'. It took all my strength not to cry. I reached inside the bag and pulled out another velvet box, but this one was square. Inside was a bracelet with a couple charms. There was a purple star, a sapphire (my birthstone), a four-leaf clover, a red telephone booth, and a pair of lips. I smiled looking at all of them.
"Niall, this is all so beautiful. I don't know what to say, thank you so much!" I said and then I hugged him.
"I um got this stuff awhile ago, but I want you to know I still mean every word. But um the clover is kind of a representation for me, and the phone booth London, before I knew you were going to live here."
"We should be together." Niall said suddenly.
"Niall, I really don't want to get into this today."
"I understand. But maybe I can take you out tomorrow?"
"Well we better get going, I'm sure they're waiting on us."
We walked out and we saw everyone waiting for us in Harry and my driveway. We took two cars. Me, Harry, Louis and then Zayn, Liam, and Niall. I wish I was in Niall's car.
Lunch was really good, and I tried to get familiar with my new surroundings but we just kept getting mobbed with girls. Some even asked me if I was still with Niall. I just said it's complicated. Harry told them to let us go since it was my birthday and we had to get back home, a bunch of them wished me happy birthday and we were on our way. When we got back to the flat we started getting ready for tonight.
I was excited to go to a club. I re-curled my hair, made my make up darker, and changed. I put on a black dress that had sequins all over it, and red pumps. I put on the necklace Niall gave me, but that was the only jewelry. When I walked out of my room Harry and Liam whistled. I just laughed.
"Thanks, where are the rest of the boys?" I asked.
"They're meeting us there, they had to get some things." Harry said.
"Like what?" I asked curious.
"You'll see! Lets get going, shall we?" Harry said.
We got into Harry's car and drove to the club. I honestly planned on getting pretty wasted. It was my birthday! Once we got inside we headed to the back where we had a booth and it was all decorated and there were a bunch of people who cheered when I showed up that wished me a happy birthday. I didn't know anyone, but I thanked them anyway. Louis greeted me and made me put on a birthday tiara that said Birthday Bitch and take a shot. Not sure what it was but it burned going down. It was going to be the first of many though. Louis moved aside and revealed a beautiful cake. It had three layers, it was vanilla cake, with purple fondant over it and decorated with a intricate design and had sparklers.
After we had some cake I started taking shots and drinking pretty drinks, I soon felt the effects of the alcohol. I could hardly stand so I was always holding onto someone. Even though I was having like a million conversations with other people I kept my eyes on Niall. A couple guys hit on me and bought me drinks and tried dancing with me but I just wasn't having it. I walked up to Niall and grabbed him by the collar.
"Lets go Horan." I slurred.
"Leese, you're drunk. It's your birthday have a good time." Liam said trying to pull me off of Niall.
"Le her be Liam!" Niall said, he was just as drunk as me.
"Yeah Liam!" I shouted.
Liam put his hands up and walked away. "What do you want?" Niall asked.
"You. I want you Niall." I said into his ear.
"Lets go." I said and grabbed his hand. We made our way to a dark corner. I grabbed his collar again and kissed him. He kissed me back. He had a hand on my thigh and the other on my back. But too soon I was pulled off of him.
"You're both drunk, stop!" Harry yelled at us. Niall walked away.
"Harry!" I whined.
"You'll thank me tomorrow."
I hugged him. "Lets dance babe!" I said grabbing his hand.
We made our way over to where everyone was dancing, Harry held onto me hips and we moved with the beat. I was soon passed around with several guys. I loved dancing and going out. I was so drunk though. I kept looking for Niall hoping I would end up with him but when I found him he was dancing with another girl. She had her arms around his neck and he was talking into her ear. She had a huge smile on her face. Fuck no. With the guy I was dancing with, who I had no idea because my back was turned to him, I made us make our way closer to Niall. We made eye contact. Then I kissed the guy I was dancing with. When I opened my eyes I realized it was Harry. Niall looked angry, Harry looked shocked, and I just got out of there as soon as possible. I made my way back to the booth and told Liam I was ready to go home. Tomorrow was going to be so awkward.
