My One and Only

Cassidy Simmons is an average 19 year old girl. She attends university, gets by with a part time job and does a webcast about One Direction with her best friend, Tori to entertain themselves. When one direction starts getting interested in this show, they decide to pay them a surprise visit. That’s when Cassidy meets Niall and starts falling for him more than she ever has for anyone. But when Niall returns these feelings, things start getting complicated. Can they survive it or will everything they once shared crash and burn?


13. Birthday Celebration




        I never noticed how fast time flies by. It seems like just yesterday that Niall and I were watching Sinister. But that was two weeks ago and my birthday was tomorrow. Niall and I’s one month anniversary had passed. We didn’t do anything special. We just watched movies the whole day and ordered Chinese food. I handed in my short story and got a 80%, which surprised me.  I was only expecting a 75. Apparently I got that mark I described my characters well.

        Now, it was a day before my birthday, and the girls and I were at the mall shopping. They said they wanted  to buy me something to wear for my special day. I refused because I didn’t want them to spend their money on me, but they insisted. We decided to go to urban planet. I was stuck between two dresses. They both had a floral print. One was black with a pink floral print at the bottom, and one was white with a baby blue and orange floral print also at the bottom.

        “Why don’t you try both on, and see which one looks the best on you?” Eleanor suggested. I shrugged. “Okay, why not?” “Ooo! And while you’re doing that, I’ll pick out some bracelets, necklaces and earrings to go with them!” Perrie chimed. “And I’ll find shoes.” Tori added. “While they’re doing that, I’ll find a cute purse to go with them.” Danielle squealed. I was about to tell them that this wasn’t necessary, but they were gone within a few seconds, looking around the store for extra things to go with the dresses.

        I sighed and made my way over to the fitting rooms, waiting in the line for my turn. “Umm… you can go in front of me if you like.” The girl in front of me offered. I smiled. “No it’s fine. I can wait.” She nodded and turned back around, but then faced me again. “You’re Cassidy Simmons right? Niall’s girlfriend?” I nodded. She smiled. “Wow. I wasn’t expecting to  ever meet. You are like one of the most famous Directioners ever. Like, tori, Eleanor and the girl who wrote Dark.”

        I laughed. “Thanks. What’s your name?” “I’m Laura. What brings you here?” I shrugged. “The other girls made me come and buy some clothes. My birthday is tomorrow.”  Laura grinned. “Oh! Well happy early birthday. Tell the girls and the boys I said hi!” she chirped before disappearing into a fitting room. I smiled. That’s probably how I would react if I met Perrie, Eleanor or Danielle before I met them. Actually, I would probably hyperventilate and throw myself on the store ground.

        “How many?” the lady running the fitting room section asked me. I believe her name was Lucy from what I read from her name tag. “Two.” She smiled and nodded before giving me a tag with the number two on it and directing me to an empty change room. I thanked her and closed the door before stripping out of my jean shorts and tank top and kicking off my purple flip flops.

        I tried on the white, blue and orange floral print dress first. I didn’t really think it suited me properly and didn’t go well with my complexion. So that dress was out of the question. I tried on the black and pink floral dress next. I loved it on me. It was so pretty. I did a few girly twirls in the mirror and giggled like a school girl. I was definitely buying this one.

I changed back into my clothes before exiting the change room and handing Lucy the dress I didn’t want. I found girls in the shoe department. Well, they found me and dragged me there to try on the shoes and accessories they picked for the dress. They had eliminated the ones that were meant for the dress I didn’t like. For shoes, there was a choice of brown gladiator like sandals or  brown wedges. I decided to go with the gladiator sandals.

For accessories, I went with a simple gold heart tag bracelet. I already had gold hoops to go with it so there would be no need in buying them. For a purse, I choose a brown side bag with diamond studs outlining it. I paid for the dress and shoes, but the girls refused to let me pay for anything else. According to them   this was their treat to me and that I was lucky they gave in to my protesting and let me buy the dress and shoes.

After paying for the stuff, they took me to Swiss chalet. “Guys, it’s not even my birthday.” Yet. I chuckled. They shrugged. “We figured you’d be spending the whole with Niall tomorrow.” Danielle said while wiggling her eyebrows. My smile faded. “What’s wrong, Cass?” Tori asked me. I sighed. “I’m excited that I’ll be twenty tomorrow but, after tomorrow, Nye will be off on tour. Tomorrow will our last night together.” this has been bothering me since our one month anniversary. I knew that  he’d be leaving soon. He’s been starting to pack already so he didn’t have to leave it for last minute.

I didn’t even like going to his house and seeing his suitcase on his room floor cause it reminded me that he was leaving soon. That I wouldn’t see him for six months. Six months. Six months with him kissing me, holding me or even just having him by my side. Perrie smiled. “I know how you feel. I’m going to Miss Zayn too.” “But it’ll be easier for you because you’re going on tour next month and you might be in the same state. But I do get what you mean.” They all nodded. They probably felt the same way I did. “But, let’s not think about that. Let’s just enjoy this chicken and fries, then go to Eleanor’s house and paint our nails like you guys said yah?”

They laughed at me. “Yah. But we’re not going to my place anymore. I took into consideration it’s in a state of disaster at the moment so we’re going to Perrie’s.” Eleanor said. I giggled and nodded.


We were now at Perrie’s house in her room. I swear, it was like a freaking beauty salon. She had shelves on her pink walls to hold her many nail polishes, and a small pink filing cabinet for her make up. “Okay Cass, what colour do you want your nails?” Perrie asked while surveying her many polishes. “A dark pink. So it’ll match my dress.” If I bought a new dress and everything for my birthday tomorrow, I might as well let my nails match too. Perrie nodded before taking out the colour I wanted, some Nail polish removal, cotton balls and Q- tips before starting on my nails.

After she was done, I offered to do hers, and the others nails but they refused because they had done theirs yesterday. We decided to watch a movie. While the girls were picking one, I decided to text Niall.

Cass<3: hey

Nialler: hey. I’m not supposed to be talking to you. The girls said that  this is their day with you and if I interrupt, they’ll beat the crap out of me :/

This caused me to laugh out loud. The girls looked at me with confused faces before I showed them the text and they laughed too. “Well, we knew he would call or text you and you’d get all mushy. So we told him not too or else he would pay the consequences.” Tori shrugged. I shook my head before replying to Niall.

Cass<3: LMAO. Ok I’ll see you tomorrow then yah?

Nialler: Yup. Later xx

Cass<3: bye! Xxx

With that I locked off my phone and starting watching the movie the girls had chosen. I soon realized that it was Breaking Dawn Part 2 and started fangirling like crazy, causing the girls to laugh at me. I didn’t care though. How couldn’t I fan girl when Taylor lautner takes his shirt off in the movie?


        I woke up in my bed on a Saturday, sat up and stretched while I smiled. It was officially my birthday. I, Cassidy Simmons was officially twenty years old! I didn’t know why I was so happy about getting older. But being twenty meant I had more privileges. I let out a content sigh before jumping out of bed and into my washroom.  I took a 30 minute shower and washed my hair before wrapping my purple towel around my body and walking into my room. I moisturized my body with cream before putting on some purple track shorts and a black tank top. I threw my hair into a messy bun even though it was still wet, and walked downstairs.

        When I got down, Tori was already up and when she saw me she squealed before attacking me in an enormous hug. “HAPPY BIRTDAY!!!” she screamed in my ear, nearly deafening me. I giggled. “Thanks, tors.” She pulled away, still with a stupid grin plastered on her face.  “I made you breakfast.” “Thanks but you didn’t have too.” she rolled her eyes. “For my eighteenth birthday you woke up early and walked to my house just to make me breakfast. So, I’m returning the favour.” I shrugged at sat on the counter.

        When she was finished she gave me a plate with pancakes, pineapple, grapes and turkey bacon. “TURKEY BACON!! I haven’t had this in so long! Thank you, tori!” I screamed before \taking a bite of turkey bacon. “It’s no problem.” She waved me off as she sat down beside me in the living room as we ate our food and watched Vampire Diaries on Netflix. At around 11:00 a.m. Niall Tango called me. “Hey, Nye.” I said as his face popped up on my phone. “Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Cassidy Alexandra Simmons,” he took a dramatic breath in as I rolled my eyes and giggled. He thought I had a long name.

        “Happy birthday to you.” He finished. I smiled. “Happy birthday, Princess.”  My face turned red and my heart started beating faster. This was the first time that he had ever called my princess. Tori, on the other hand had a mini fangirl session and excused herself from the living room.  “Thanks. So, what’s up. And please excuse my messy hair and no makeup face at the moment.” I said after tori had exited the room. Niall rolled his eyes. “You still look beautiful to me. And nothing much, Just at my house.” I rolled my eyes at his previous comment. “Stop that. You know matter what you wear or how you look, you’ll always be beautiful.” I blushed and thank him. “So, what time do you want to come over?” he asked me. I thought about it.  “Hmm…. Maybe like one or two, my family will probably Skype me or something like that for a while.”

        He nodded and smiled. “Okay. So what are you doing?” “Watching Vampire Diaries.” He rolled his eyes and I laughed. Just then, it showed a scene of Damon with his shirt off and screamed and paused Netflix to soak in his hotness.  “He’s so hot.” I mumbled. “You know, it’s consider rude to say a guy is hot while talking to your boyfriend.” Niall stated and I giggled. “You’re hot too. If it makes you feel better.” He shook his head and blushed at my comment. We continued to talk until twelve before we hung up and I went upstairs  to my room.


         I was   right. My family did Skype call me. We talked until quarter to one. When we finished talking I started getting ready to go to Niall’s. I took a ten minute shower and moisturized my body before putting on my robe and starting to tackle my hair. I used a wide tooth comb and a detangle spray to get through the tangles in my hair.  I lightly blow dried it to fully dry it and add some more volume to my hair. After that, I plugged in my purple straightener and went to lay out my clothes as it got hot.

        I put the dress, shoes and accessories I bought yesterday on my bed when my phone went off. I had a lot of birthday texts from friends on Facebook, twitter and from the boys and girls. I quickly replied to all of them before going back to my hair.  I curled it to the point where it came out all spiral like and bouncy. Satisfied, I unplugged the curler and let it cool down before putting it away.

        Next, I put on underwear and a bra before putting on my dress.  I put on some gold hooped earrings, and the gold heart tag bracelet I bought yesterday. I couldn’t find a short enough necklace for the cut of the dress so I simply just wore no necklace. I then stood in front of the mirror in my room while applying black mascara that lengthened my eyelashes and gave them volume.

 I put on my Baby lips for moisture on my lips before adding colour. I went with a pink lip stains that went perfect with my dress. I put on the gladiator like sandals I bought yesterday onto my feet and wiggled my pink painted toes that Danielle did for me yesterday. We had almost forgotten.  I got out the purse the girls had gotten for me yesterday, and put my phone, lip stains, baby lips, mascara keys and wallet in it before turning off my room light and walking down stairs.

“Well, look at you. Getting all dolled up for Niall.” Tori teased as I walked down the stairs. I laughed. “Or because it’s my birthday.” I stated before hugging her and leaving the house.  I walked ten minutes to Niall’s house. When I got there I knocked on the door and stood on the front porch, waiting for him to answer the door.

        “Hey, Ca- Wow.” He breathed as he looked at me. His eyes travelled from mine all the way down to my feet, and back up again. I blushed as he took me in. “Hey, Nye.” I said as he faced me again. “Hey… you look beautiful.” I smiled and lightly pecked his lips before hugging and walking inside. “Thanks.” “I have something for you.” Niall said as he grabbed my hand lead me to the kitchen. I groaned. “Nye, I said I didn’t want anything from you.” He chuckled. “But I didn’t buy this. I made it.” “So, does that mean you didn’t get me anything?” I asked with hope in my voice.

        He laughed. “You keep telling yourself that.” I huffed but followed him to the kitchen anyways. When we to the kitchen there was a plate with two vanilla cupcakes with pink whipped icing on them. I smiled at Niall. “You made these?” he nodded. “But, I’m not a great baker like you. So, I need you, to tell me if they are good or not.” I shrugged. “Hmm.. well, you get marks for presentation.” I said like a critic, causing Niall to chuckled. I picked up one cupcake and licked off some of icing. Mmm. I peeled off some of the paper and took a bite out it.

        My eyes rolled into the back of my head. “Mmmm…” I said. “These are even better than mine.” I managed to say with a mouth full of cupcake. Attractive right? “Really?” he said sounded surprised. I nodded while taking another bite into mine as Niall took his and started eating it as well.  When our cupcakes were done, we sat on his couch. “So, what do you want to do?” I thought for a while. “I want to play Black Ops 2.” Niall rose an eyebrow at me. “Remember when we first met and you tango called me and harry said he was going to play Black ops 2?” Niall nodded.

        “Well, he said I could play one time but I never got to. So, now I want to play.” Niall chuckled. “Do you even know how to play?” I playfully rolled my eyes. “It’s not rocket science. All you have to is press buttons. Oh! And then I want to play Marvel vs. Capcom I love that game!” Niall shook his head while laughing. “I don’t understand how you go from girly to tomboy in under 10 minutes.” I  shrugged. “I’ll go get my PS3. Wait here.” I nodded as Niall went upstairs to his room to get it.

        I think he caught on that I didn’t like seeing his suitcases all packed and ready to go. When he came down he set up before putting in Black Ops 2. He put it on teams so that we could player together. We were playing the computer and random people on line. It took a while but I finally shot someone and they died “Yay! I did it!” Niall sighed. “Cassidy you shot me. We’re on the same team remember?” well I felt stupid. We kept playing while I was trying to shoot everybody but I kept missing and someone always hit me in the back with a knife.

        “Okay, honestly who the hell is throwing the god damn knives!” I yelled in frustration as Niall simply laughed at me. I gave up and he put in Marvel V.S. Capcom. Now we were versing each other. I picked Shadow lady and Niall picked Ryu. I was much better at this game. This was the only game I used to play with my brother back home. Well, this and some other Naruto game. I knew how to use Shadow lady’s special and when to use them. I kept hitting Niall with my combos and finished him off with my special. He groaned as his character knocked out, making me the winner.

        “How does Shadow lady beat Ryu? It makes no sense.” “Because I’m a pro at this game.” He rolled his eyes as I giggled and kissed his cheek while resting my head on his chest.


Danielle, Liam, Perrie, Zayn, Louis, Eleanor, Harry and I were all at Cass and I’s place. Niall was keeping Cassidy busy at his place while we started transforming her room. The first, and hardest step, was taking down all the posters she had. “Try not to tear them.” I said to the boys who looked about ready to claw them off. They sighed, knowing it would take long but took their time. “Why does she have so much?” Harry whined. I shrugged. “she`s a directioner. What else is she supposed to spend her money on?”

        Harry shook his head and proceeded taking down the posters. After we finished that, we started taking down her furniture. “Okay, we need to empty out her dressers. But the girls and I while take care of that. You guys don’t need to be going through her stuff.” Perrie stated. The boys rolled their eyes and began taking the covers off her sheet and putting them in a laundry bin. The girls and I got four bins: one for her under garments, another for her pajamas, one for her t shirts and one for her yoga and track pants. We took out all the contents from her drawers, and sorted through them to put them in the correct bin.

        Meanwhile, the boys were taking down her bed. The girls and I finished taking the stuff out her dresser and started clearing off the top. We put her make up in a bin, her hair products and tools in another and her jewellery in a next. Danielle and I successfully moved her dresser into the hallway without help while Perrie and Eleanor moved her mirror as well. Zayn and Harry moved her head board and frame into the hallway as well while Liam and Louis moved her bed frame. I easily slid her mattress into the hallway to speed up the process.

        Soon enough, every piece of furniture that Cassidy owned was in the hallway and the girls and I were laying old sheets on the carpet so it wouldn`t get splattered with paint. Zayn was taking down anything that was left on her walls while Louis went to go get the paint from the basement. “Okay, which wall do we start on?” Louis asked as he set down the paint, paint rollers and plates.  “Well, they`re eight of us so and four walls so why don’t we pair up and work on a wall?” Liam suggested. We all agreed and grabbed our boyfriends and girlfriends and choosing a wall.

        I was doing my side of the wall harry and I chose perfectly until I had to the higher part. Harry laughed at me as I jumped trying to reach the top. I huffed. “Need help?” I pouted and nodded before harry put me up on his shoulders so I can reach. “This is so embarrassing.” I whined. Harry laughed and shook his head. “I like short girls.” “Hmm… I thought zayn did.” “I do. That’s why I’m dating Perrie.” He joked as Perrie punched him in his chest, causing me to laugh.

        Painting the walls didn’t take as long as I thought. There was a bit of a stall because Liam and Danielle attempted to have a paint fight.  We took a break to let the paint dry and went to bring Cassidy`s new furniture upstairs, moving the old ones down in the process. “How did Cass get the bigger room?” Louis asked as we headed back upstairs. I shrugged. “It started off as a game of rock, paper, scissors before it became a wrestling of who can pin who. Best two out of three.” They all laughed. I remember thinking I would actually be able to pin Cass. She was more aggressive.

        Surprisingly, the paint was dry by the time we were finished and the boys started putting together her Queen sized canopy bed. She was looking at a double sized one but we all just decided to get her a queen.  While the boys did that, us girls actually managed to put together both of her white nightstands without help from the boys.  I happily clapped as we set them to the side and moved on to her vanity table. We didn`t get her a dresser because her closet was big.

        We bought shelves and bins to slide underneath them to put her clothes in. without the dresser, her room would be much bigger. We put the vanity table together to as the boys finished putting her bed together. They dragged in her  box spring and mattress before putting them on her bed frame. Harry collapsed onto the bed, acting like he was about to pass out. I know he goes to the gym and works out there is no way he tired from that.

        “Harry, get your lazy ass up now.” I said while pulling on his arm. He groaned and sat up. “Okay, lets paint her bathroom and everything before setting everything up.” Zayn said. We all nodded and moved into the washroom.



“Oh my gosh I thought we would never finish.” I exclaimed as the girl, boys and I walked into my flat that the boys had decorated yesterday while the girls and I were having our girl time. The them was purple, pink and white.  Right now, we laying out  the snacks, plates and cups. It was now 4:30 and the party started at 6:30. The guest list wasn`t big but we knew she would enjoy it either way.

We invited a few people from school that were cool and wouldn`t like, rape the boys. Those people were Emily, Aliyah, Christina, Rachel, Ally, Stacy, Nicolle and Jessica. Emily, Jessica, Christina, and Tracy were in Cassidy`s and i`s event planning class. The rest were in literature with Tori, Cass and I.

The boys had often Josh and Ed. I knew Cassidy would freak out. She thought Josh was cute and loved Ed`s music. Perrie was able to get Jade, Jesy and Leigh- Anne to come as well. She also enjoyed Little Mix`s music. So, altogether it was a party of twenty three. The boys had left to their houses to go get their gifts to bring to my flat. The girls had been smart and brought theirs up earlier today.  “What time is everyone coming again?” Danielle asked me as she poured a bunch of Doritos  in a pink bowl.

I shrugged. “We told everyone to get here around 5:30. So,” I checked my phone for them. “They should be here in 30 minutes.” Danielle nodded. Just then the boys came in with their presents in their hands and in proper clothes. That’s when I remembered the girls and I were in sweat pants and tank tops which had paint all over them. The boys took their girlfriends home to get changed while Louis stayed down stairs to finish things up while I changed up stairs.

  I decided to wear a pink high- low skirt with a white tank top with sparkles all over it tucked into the skirt. I paired it with a pair of white strappy sandals. I decided to straighten my hair. I took a good amount of my hair, braided it and pinned it to the side of my head using bobby pins that matched the colour of my hair. I put on pink lip gloss before walking downstairs into the living room. Louis was lying down on the couch.  

        I joined him on the couch.  “Tired?” I asked him. He shook his head. “Bored. I just want to get this party started so I can give Cass her gift.” I nodded. “What did you get her?” he smirked. “You`ll see.” Oh god. Leave it up Louis. I shook my head at him and rested my head on his chest.  He kissed my forehead. The boys came back with the girls who were all prettied up. Tori was wearing a mint green romper and had also straightened her. She parted it down the middle and put it to the sides. She wore white flip flops with it.

        Perrie was in a white strapless dress with a thick brown belt to pair with it. She wore brown wedges with it and curled her pink hair. Danielle was in a pair of shorts with stairs at the side of them and a red chambray top. Her hair was all crimpy and she wore gold gladiator sandals.

        It was exactly 5:30 when Aliyah, Christina, Rachel, Ally, Nicolle, Stacy, Jessica and Emily showed up. They rested their presents where we had all rested ours and sat on the couch. Josh was the next to show up. We greeted him and he rested his gift with the others before falling into a conversation Emily, who looked about ready to die.

        The boys were talking to the other girls, trying to break them out of their shyness. Which they did. In about ten minutes, they were their loud, funny and down to earth selves. Then came Jesy, Jade, and Leigh- Anne. Then Ed. Everyone was here now.  It was 6:00 when Zayn texted Niall to tell him that he could bring Cass  now. 


After Niall and had finished playing with his PS3, I discovered he had Nerf guns. We were running around his house shooting each other. I tackled him to the ground and sat on him as u shot him repeatedly in his back. Now, we were just sitting on his couch watching vampire diaries. He had finally gave in to my begging and watched it with me. I could tell he found the storyline interesting. His phone beeped, telling him he had a text. “The boys and girls want us to come over to Eleanor’s house so we can watch movies for your birthday.”   

        He explained. I nodded. “Okay. Let`s go then.” I said as I turned off the T.V. and straightening out my dress as I got up from the couch. He texted zayn back saying that we were on our way. It was a ten minute drive to Eleanor’s house. We got out the car and stood on the porch. I was about to ring the doorbell but Niall stopped me. “She left the door open.”  “How did you know?” he shrugged. “Zayn told me.” I nodded as he opened the door. We were greeted by darkness. “Why is it so dark in here? Did they all turn into vampires from the last time I saw them?” Niall chuckled. “You`ve been watching way too much Vampire diaries.” I rolled my eyes and felt around the wall for the light switch.

        When I found it, I flicked in on. When the lights turned on I saw a bunch people starring at me with big smiles. The hell? “SURPRISE!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASSIDY.” They all screamed. I was a bit surprised at first before a grin across my face. “Omg I had no idea you guys were planning something. Thank you!” I yelled as they all laughed at me I gave them all (including Niall) a hug, thanking them individually. I was happy that I finally got to meet Ed Sheeran, the rest of little mix and Josh Devine.

        Music was playing throughout the house and everyone was talking, drinking and eating. I noticed josh and Emily were hitting it off. I was so going to text her and interrogate when I got home later. I was talking to Aliyah, Christina and tori at the moment. “Do you see Emily and josh?” Aliyah said. We all nodded. “She likes him in a non- rapist way.” I stated as the girls laughed at me.  “I wish I had a boyfriend.” Christina sighed. We all gave her a look. “You’re dating Chris.” Tori pointed out. Chris was in my event planning class. he was one of rick`s friends. She shrugged. “Okay, then I want a celebrity boyfriend then.” I laughed at her while taking a sip of my mountain dew.

        Just then, Fix you my Vita Chambers came on and Aliyah and I started freaking and acting like idiots while singing along loudly to the song.  I caught a glimpse of Niall while I was furiously shaking my head. He was talking to Ed but was shaking his head and laughing at me.


        “Present time!” Louis shouted as he turned off the music. He had that mischievous grin on his. What was he up to? I turned to Eleanor, about to ask her what his problem was but she cut me off by saying, “I have no idea.” Nicolle and I laughed before taking seats on the couch. I sat next to Niall before taking some of the gifts off the table and going back for the rest. There was so many. I was honestly not expecting this.  “Hmm… which one shall I open first?” I thought aloud.  I picked up a blue bag that had purple tissue paper in it. “From Louis to Cassie.” I read aloud. I squinted my eyes at him. He still called me that.

        I removed the tissue paper and pulled out a rectangle box. In side it was a Barbie doll that looked like me. I looked at Louis not sure what to say. “I named her Lucy.” He said as I rolled my eyes.  I didn`t like being compared to her. Louis laughed along with the others. “But that’s not your real present. Your real one is in the bag.” I pulled out a box that was wrapped in white wrapping paper.  I tore it off to reveal the new mini Polaroid camera in baby blue. I grinned and squealed because the pictures came out as soon as you snapped them. “Thank you, Louis!” I said as I got up and gave him a hug.

        I moved onto the next present which was in a white bag with pink roses on it. This one was from Nicolle. “You’re going to want to slap me for this but I saw it and I just had to get it for you.” She said. It made me wonder what it was. I pulled out a white graphic tank that read ‘I DIG IRISH BOYS’ in white letters over the Ireland flag. Everyone laughed as I showed it around, blushing madly and shaking my head at Nicolle. I put it back in its bag and gave her hug and thanked her.

        The next gift was from Leigh- Anne. She had gotten me five graphic tees that read:






I smiled at what they all said before thanking her and giving her a hug.  The next one I opened was from Josh. He had gotten me an iPod fourth generation and a $50 iTunes card to with it. He also put a case with it that said ‘MUISC IS MY LIFE’. So I guess I sort of had three cameras now. My phone, iPod and camera.  I got a gave him a hug. It continued with me opening presents for a while and giving people hugs. Jade got me the Twilight saga box set on DVD, Aliyah got me the new One Direction perfume which caused me to freak out. Tori got me a black fringe tote and inside of it she put a yellow bandeau bikini, a white romper with a brown braided dual belt to go with it, and a pair of brown sunglasses.

Harry got me the Dr. Beats noise cancelling head phones in purple, zayn got me a baking book that contained how to design pastries and different recipes. He even bought me different icings and cake mixes to go with it. Eleanor got me a jewellery box with 3 rings, 3 necklaces, 3 bracelets, 5 hair accessories and 6 new nail colours. I noticed everything added up to twenty. I wonder if she planned that.  Christina got me all the Pretty Little Liars novels. Jesy got me a necklace that said ‘HAKUMA MATATA’ and the matching ring, Liam got me got me Vampire Diaries season one to three on DVD. I completely fangirled while Niall faked cried, knowing he was going to have to watch some of those episodes with me.

I laughed at him and continued opening my presents. Danielle got me a pair of white wedges and Perrie got me a crimper. I guess she remembered that I said I wanted to crimp my hair.  Jessica got me5 new phone cases and a full body set (Cream, Body soap, Perfume). Ally got me the Ed Sheeran CD while Rachel got me two         EOS balms, a black with white polka dotted make up bag and a tube of mascara. Stacy got me a fifty dollars gift card to forever 21, Emily got me floral print skinny jeans and a white flowing top, and Ed got me the new Demi Lovato CD with a stereo. It was also had a docking station for iPods and a radio. I could also hook my phone up to it and play music from there too.

I noticed that the last gift I chose was Niall’s. I picked up the purple wrapped box and opened it.  In it was a purple Pandora bracelet and a sliver infinity necklace. If you looked closely, on the infinity necklace the words ‘Cass+Niall’ were engraved on it. I smiled and blushed at the same time. “Aww! Thanks, Nye.” I said as I gave him a hug and I peck on the lips as everyone ‘Aww’. “Okay, now who wants cake?” Tori asked and we all cheered like a bunch of three year olds.

 We all went into the kitchen where there was a vanilla cake with Purple and pink flowers on it made out of whipped icing. The top and sides where white whipped icing and it was outlined in pink whipped icing it said ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASSIDY’ in capital purple letters. There was two candles. The number two and zero to make the number ‘20’.  They picked up a lighter and lit them before singing me Happy Birthday.

“Now make a wish.” Niall told me.  I closed my eyes and thought hard before smiling. I wish Niall will be mine forever I thought before blowing out the candles while everyone cheered. “What did you wish for?” Niall asked. I smiled at him. “If I tell you it won`t come true.” And I couldn’t risk that happening. He meant too much to me. And today, all my insecurities about him cheating on me or using me went away as soon as he gave me that necklace.


Niall and were In Eleanor’s backyard finishing up our cake. Louis had taken my presents back to my house. Weird but I allowed him to anyways. The only gift he left with me was Niall’s which was resting in my lap now. The music was so loud that we can hear from out here. Right now, 22 by Taylor Swift was on. “I really like the necklace that you gave Me.” he smiled. “Especially the Cass+ Niall engraved on it.” He blushed at my words and looked down at the floor. “I wasn’t sure if I should. I thought it would weird you out.” I redirected his attention to me again by poking him. “It didn’t. It took away all the insecurities I had before.” I told him. He grinned and kissed my forehead.” I’m glad I did it then.” I smiled. He took the box from my lap and took the necklace out. He unlocked before putting it around my neck and locking it again.

“Cause I don’t you to doubt the way I feel about you.” He said as he took my hair out from the chain and kissed my cheek.

I smiled at him. The song Truly Madly Deeply by Savage garden came on. “I love this song.” I said. “Want to dance?” Niall asked and stood up while putting his hand out in front of me. I blushed and nodded while taking his hand and walking onto the grass. I wrapped my arms around his neck as his hands rested on my waist as we swayed back and forth to the music.

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.

I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.

I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do

I will be strong, I will be faithful 'cause I'm counting on a new beginning.

A reason for living. A deeper meaning.

I want to stand with you on a mountain.

I want to bathe with you in the sea.

I want to lay like this forever.

Until the sky falls down on me

“You’re leaving tomorrow.” I whispered. Niall nodded. “I know.” He said, not sure what else to say. “I’m going to miss you, Nye.” My voice cracked as I rested my head on Niall’s shoulder, feeling tears coming on. He hushed me soothingly. “No tears. I’m going to come back. And I’ll call, text and Skype you as much I can. I’m going to come back for you. And no, that wasn’t a reference to ‘Back for you’.” I smiled and laughed at his words before facing him again.

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky,

I'll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry

The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty.

That we're surrounded by the comfort and protection of

The highest power, in lonely hours, the tears devour you


I want to stand with you on a mountain,

I want to bathe with you in the sea.

I want to lay like this forever,

Until the sky falls down on me

Oh can you see it baby?

You don't have to close your eyes

'Cause it's standing right before you.

All that you need will surely come

“Are you going to have breaks during the tour?” I asked him. He shrugged. “I don’t know yet. Hopefully.” I nodded. “I’ll be waiting for you when you come back.” I stated.  Niall smiled. “That’ll be something to look forward to.” I giggled.

 I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.

I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.

I'll love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do

“I’ll think about you every day.” He whispered in my ear. “And count down the days until I see you again.” I nodded before he pressed his lips with much passion for about 15 seconds be we pulled away and I rested my head in the crook of his neck, as he stroked my hair.

I want to stand with you on a mountain

I want to bathe with you in the sea.

I want to lay like this forever.

Until the sky falls down on me


I want to stand with you on a mountain

I want to bathe with you in the sea.

I want to live like this forever.

Until the sky falls down on me


“Three words: Cutest. Couple. Ever.” I stated as we all watch Niall put the necklace on Cassidy through Eleanor`s window. Yes, we were all creepers like that.  22 finished and Truly, Madly, Deeply by Savage Garden came on.  Niall offered Cass his hand and she blushed before taking it and wrapping her arms around his neck as he grabbed her waist. “I know right? Is anyone taking pictures?” Aliyah asked. Christina, Ally, Eleanor and Tori all put up their hands, causing me to chuckle.

They continued to slow dance and talk as we watched them.  Niall and Cassidy kissed for a while before pulling away. Cassidy buried her head in the crook of Niall’s neck as he stroked her hair. Nicolle started breathing really heavy. “Are you okay?” Liam asked her. She nodded. “I`m just keeping my fan girl moment bottled up inside because I’m afraid you guys will think less of me.” Louis chuckled. I forgot he came back. “Cassidy still fan girls over Niall. And she’s dating him. Trust me, we won’t think less of you. Nicolle shrugged. “In that case,” I really wish Louis hadn’t said that. Because Nicolle’s scream was deadly. Being her best friend since grade five I would know. She let out an ear shattering scream and I jumped, stumbling  into Josh’s arm.

I blushed. “Hey.” He smiled at me. “Hey, Emily.” Josh and I had really hit off. We were talking for pretty much the whole party. He even asked for my number which I gladly gave to him. When the song ended, Cassidy and Niall made their way inside and we all tried to act like we weren`t watching. “Nicolle’s scream gave it away.” Cassidy laughed as we all scrambled away from the window. I gave Nicolle and she shrugged. “Louis basically gave me permission to bring out my inner fan girl.” Louis laughed and shook his head at her.

We all socialized for a little while longer before everyone started going home. “Can I text you tonight?” Josh asked as I stood at the front door about to leave. I smiled. “Yah, sure. There’s no way I’m going to bed anytime soon.” He chuckled and gave ,me a hug before I left the house with Jessica, Ally, Nicolle, Aliyah, Christina, Stacy and Rachel.


        “Today was the best day ever!” Cassidy squealed as she entered tori’s and her house with Niall, Liam, Zayn, Louis, Tori, Danielle, Perrie, Eleanor and I right behind her. We were all going to watch a movie and pop popcorn to end off her birthday. “I’m glad to see you enjoyed yourself.” I said as she practically skipped around the living room. She nodded and kicked off her shoes and held them in her hand. “Okay, you guys can pick a movie and I’m going to go to my room and change into something a bit more comfortable okay?” we all smiled and nodded and she skipped up the stairs.

Tori started counting down “5…4…3…2…1” as soon as Tori finished counting, Cassidy let out a ear shattering scream.



        “Today was the best day ever!” I squealed as I entered tori and I’s house with Niall, Harry, Liam, Zayn, Louis, Tori, Danielle, Perrie and Eleanor right behind me. We were all going to watch a movie and pop popcorn to end off my birthday.  I skipped around the living room. “I’m glad to see you enjoyed yourself.” Harry said as I nodded and kicked off my shoes, holding them in my hand.  “Okay, you guys can pick a movie and I’m going to go to my room and change into something a bit more comfortable okay?” They all smiled and nodded. I skipped up the stairs to my room and opened the door.

        But I wasn’t greeted by the room I knew. Instead, I was greeted by the room I dreamed to have. I dropped my shoes and let out a ear shattering scream. The boys and girls all came up the stairs with big grins on their faces. Unable to speak at the moment, I pointed to my room as I jumped up and down in my spot. “Do you like it?” Zayn asked. “I LOVE IT! Thank you guys so much!” I screamed before giving them all a big hug. Expect for Niall, he got a hug and a kiss on the cheek. I ran back into my room to take it in. 

        There was a white, queen sized canopy bed in the centre that you saw as soon as you opened the door. The comforter was white with black, green,  pink, blue and purple polka dots in circles according to colour. The pillow cases were black and pink. The throw pillows were black, green, blue, pink and purple to go with the comforter.  There was two white nightstands, one on each side of my bed. On one was a lava lamp and on the other was a regular lamp. There was white vanity table that had all my hair products on it and jewellery.

 They got me a new desk that was also white but had roses engraved on the legs. On it was my Diary and the stereo that Ed had gotten along with my iPod, Headphones, laptop, mini  Polaroid camera and two new CDs. The walls were purple and over my bed it said ‘CASSIDY’ in big black bold letters. On one wall there was a picture frame that said memories in cursive in the side and it contained more than picture holder. It had Pictures of Tori and I when we were younger, some of us now, the boys and girls and me and Niall.  They got a big picture frame and made a collage of some of my posters  I had before.

It also had a full length mirror. In one corner of my room, there was a bunch of cushions and two bean bag chair with a mini table  in the centre that had my some of my books and magazines on it. “Check the washroom.” Danielle said. I opened the door to my washroom to be greeted by turquoise coloured walls and the words ‘LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH ‘ in big white letters over the long horizontal mirror. There was a fabric shelf thing hanging from my ceiling. It had my shampoo, body wash, rag, towel and some toilet paper rolls resting on the shower curtain was now white with a cheetah print on it. The rug was the shape of a heart. It was a mint green.

I walked out the washroom and was told by Liam to look in my closet. The walls in there were pink  and had the words, ‘FASHION IS MY KYRPTONITE’ on them in white Bubble letters.  My clothes were hung up and the ones that were once in my old dresser  were in bins that slid out from the under the shelf. My extra blankets were folded neatly on  top of the shelf and my shoes were lined up neatly. My purses and school bag hung on hooks that were nailed into the walls.

These guys really had out done themselves. I walked back out from the closet and gave them all hugs once again. “Okay, we’ll see you down stairs. You go get changed.” Niall said and I nodded while closing my door. I got out a pair of sweat shorts and a crop top to wear before wiping off all my makeup and putting my hair in a fish tail braid. I put my phone on its charger before and emptied my purse of it its other contents. I put my wallet on my nightstand, my lip glosses and mascara in a drawer of my vanity and hung up my purse in my closet along with my dress. I put my heart tag bracelet in the jewellery box that Eleanor gave me and my shoes in my closet.

That`s probably why Louis took my gifts home. To set them up in my room. How sweet. I sat on my bed to put on some socks. That’s when I noticed that there was a white envelope on one of the pillows. I picked it up and read what it said on it.


        This is another part of your birthday gift. Well, it’s for you and Tori so I guess it’s like an earlier present for her? I don’t know. Okay let’s move on before I run out of room on this envelope. I should’ve used paper… anyways! You said you were homesick and you were pretty upset. I don’t like seeing my princess upset. So, I’m hoping the contents in this envelope will help you feel better. There’s one for Tori too to keep you company and I’m pretty sure she’s homesick as well. Hope this makes you feel better.



        No. he didn’t. He couldn’t have. I opened the envelope and pulled out two first class plane tickets to Florida. He did. I squealed before putting the plane tickets back on the dresser and running downstairs. “You are the best boyfriend ever!” I shouted at Niall before jumping into his arms and planting a kiss on his lips for a brief second. He smiled. “Thank you! A thousand times thank you so much!” I screamed while giving him a big hug. “What did he do?” tori asked. “He got us tickets to go to Florida to see our parents.” Tori gasped and started screaming with me. “I love your boyfriend!” she screamed,  causing us all to laugh.

        “It`s no big deal.” He said. “Shut the hell up! This is a big deal” I yelled while skipping around the living room like a retard. He really had no idea how happy I was. Because I was going to see my family. And it was all because of him. I have reasons to believe that this was the birthday I have ever experienced.
