7. When it's my Birthday

Elle's P.O.V.~

I woke up to the sound of birds chirping outside me window. Lifting the covers off me i stood up and walked over to my mirror i felt different. Older? Mature? Prettier? I couldn't place my finger on it but i just felt different. 

Walking down stairs i could already smell my birthday pancakes. My mom always made pancakes for me on my birthday. It was a Sunday so naturally we would've been at church but since it was my birthday we all got to sleep in for once. I love when it's my birthday. 

"Good morning Ellie Lou." My mother said brightly. Sunday or not she was always cheery in the morning. "Breakfast ready?" I leaned over her shoulder so i could get a wiff of the scenty goodness. "Almost, will you set the table." I nodded to her and reached in the cabinet to grab 5 plates. One for me, my mom, my dad, my sister, and my little brother. Carrying the plates to the dining room i happened to notice the present on the table.

"Mom, is this what i think it is?" She didn't answer, instead she carried the plates of food into the  the dining room.

I called up the stairs to the rest of my sleeping family. A few seconds later we were all sat around the table. My mother smiled then handed me the present on the table. Full of excitement i ripped off the wrapping paper. In my hands was a vintage Dacora that i had been talking to my family about since forever. "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you." I screamed and hugged both my mom and dad. I already had it out of the box and was taking pictures.

"Okay, enough with the pictures let's eat but first let's pray." My sister said, she was always the most religious one. We all held hands and my father prayed. "Bless this wonderful meal my wife has cooked. And lord please watch over my lovely daughter as she passes into another year of her life. Amen!" We all repeated amen and started to dig in. 

"Henry, it's my birthday so i should get the last piece of bacon!" I argued with my little brother. "No, i should get it because i'm the youngest." I shook my head and started to reach for the bacon. He grabbed my arm and bit it. "Ouch, oh your gunna pay for that twurp!" I chased him around the table until i tackled him and pinned him to the ground. "Oh for Christ's sake, i will eat the damn thing." Before me and Henry could protest my dad already had shoved the bacon into his mouth. "Dad!" We both yelled at the same time.


After breakfast i got to skip clean-up duty because it was my birthday, so i went to take a shower. I was midway through singing Radioactive by Imagine Dragons, while i was getting dressed, when my phone buzzed. It was Harry.

From: Harry - Meet me outside in 15 minutes.

To: Harry - Okie dokie, mind telling me where we are going. 

From: Harry - It's a surprise. Just make sure to where sunglasses and a hoodie so no one will recognize you.

I pulled out my brown Aeropostal hoodie from my closet and put it on over my Captain America shirt. Walking out of my room i grabbed my purse and my pink Ray Bands, then headed downstairs. I was almost to the door when my dad stopped me.

"Where do you think your going?" Crap, i need to think of something. "Um... Rylea wanted to hang out at the mall today so we can do birthday shopping?" I said with begging eyes. He nodded then headed upstairs, believing my lie. 

I wasn't standing on the curb for too long when Harry pulled up in a turquoise vintage 50's style truck. He parked the car then got out of the drivers side. and tossed me the keys. "Happy Birthday!" My mouth dropped. No freaking way. "You did not just get me a car for my birthday!" He smiled at me and nodded. I looked the truck over it was exactly the car i have always wanted. It looked like the truck my neighbors down the street have, as well. Every time we drove past the car, i would tell my sister i wanted that exact car. 

"How?" I turned back to Harry. "A little birdie told me you liked this truck so i went to your neighbor and bought it from him." I made a mental note to thank my sister for telling him this, but for now i just jumped on Harry and gave him a bear hug with a kiss. "I can never repay you for this." I told him once i was out of my shock. "You already have. Now should we test the car out now." I nodded and skipped over to the drivers side. I already knew how to drive a stick-shift, thanks to my grandma's farm.


"Turn left at this light." I followed Harry's command as he told me the directions to the place we were going. "This is downtown, are you sure the place your taking me is over here?" I saw him nod out of the corner of my eye. 

He told me we were there when he had me park in front of the old Paramount Movie Theater. Confused i stepped out of the car and looked at the rundown building. "Harry I think we are at the wrong place. This movie theater has been closed since 1959." He smiled and put an arm around my waist. "I know."

We entered the building to meet an Old man in his 60s or 70s. "Hello, my name is George, i used to work at this movie theater when i was about your age. Your friend here has asked me to play a movie one last time for you. If you follow me i can show you to your seats." As we followed George i investigated the theater. It looked a little run down with spider webs hanging here and there but for the most part looked like it would back in the day. It felt as if we we went back in time to the 50s. 

When we were seated another man came out and handed us popcorn and drinks. "Now sit back, relax, and enjoy our feature presentation." George left and in a few minutes the movie started to play. 

Once i heard the music i knew instantly what movie we were watching. " 'Guys and Dolls', I love this movie, by far the greatest movie of all time! Very popular in the 50's! How did you know?" I  asked Harry even though i knew the answer. "Your Sister." Harry said smiling and kissed me. I was blushing how did i wind up with this amazing guy?

~Authors Note- I hope you liked this chapter, i've been home sick all day so i've been writing and reading. I hope you noticed the 50's theme going on, (It's my favorite era) I think i was supposed to be born in the 50's or maybe in a past life i lived in the 50's because i love everything from that time. Well i hope you have/had a good day and don't forget to comment/like/favorite anything works for me. And let me know if you have a good fanfiction for me to read. Ok, well see y'all in the next chapter. Goodbye beauties~
