Summer Love

Summer hasn't thought about what happened all those years ago for a very long time, but those memories are forced back to her when her 17-year-old daughter, Darcy, needs to write a story based on something that actually happened. As these memories come back, will Summer have to re-think everything she did that summer and in the end, did she make the right choice?


20. Happy Birthday

Summer Love

Chapter Nineteen – Happy Birthday


It was my 21st birthday today, but no one remembered. When I woke up in the morning, Diana was already gone. I didn’t have a single text from Noah or any of my other friends. Just a text from my Dad, one from Sandra and one from Kristy.


It was Friday, which meant I only had two classes and to make it better, they were my two favorite classes and they didn’t start until noon. I look over at my clock, 10:00AM. I still had about an hour and 45 minutes before I had to leave, so I decided to hop in the shower. I plugged my iPod in and hit the shuffle button and I hoped in the shower. Titanium started to play and I sung along at the top of my lungs because no one else was in the room,

“I’M BULLETPROOF, NOTHING TO LOSE, FIRE AWAY, FIRE AWAY!!!!” I sung at the top of my lungs. I continued to shower, washing my hair, shaving and all that jazz. Then I got out and curled my red hair into loose ringlets. Usually I never put this much effort into how I look, except when I have a date with Noah, but today I feel pretty, oh so pretty. Aha I’m so funny. ANYWAYS, once my hair was done, I put on a little mascara and eyeliner to make my brown eyes pop a little. Next I went to get dressed. It was pretty warm for early May, so I threw on a pair of high-waist shorts and a flowy blue t-shirt.

I looked over at my clock, which read 11:30. I didn’t have to leave for class for another fifteen minutes, so I sat down on the couch and scrolled through my mentions on twitter. A lot of people were wishing me a happy birthday, a few were asking to follow them and so I did. I now have 2.5 million followers. Wow, you date a celebrity for a summer and then you become a celeb. I continued to read tweets, some saying they wished Harry and I got together again, others saying that they love Noah and I together. I continued to scroll through, luckily I don’t get much hate. The boys tweeted me wishing me a happy birthday:

<@Real_Liam_Payne: Happy birthday to @LoveSummerM_xo :) we miss you>

<@NiallOfficial: Happy birthday to the bestest! Miss you @LoveSummerM_xo>

<@zaynmalik: Happy 21st birthday to @LoveSummerM_xo ! Hope to see you soon>

<@Louis_Tomlinson: Happy 21st @LoveSummerM_xo ! You better get your ass in London soon! :P>

And finally, one from Harry <@Harry_Styles: Happy birthday @LoveSummerM_xo I hope we see each other soon <3 J>

Then one tweet caught my eye:

<@EleanorJCalder: @LittleMixOffic is on break from their tour which means Perrie, @DaniellePeazer and I are in the US. @LoveSummerM_xo, guess where we are ;)>


I was in shock. Were they in New York? It’s only an hour from here, maybe somewhere here in Connecticut. Oh my god what if they were here at Yale? I quickly replied to the tweet,

<@LoveSummerM_xo: @EleanorJCalder @LittleMixOffic @DaniellePeazer how much longer until I hear someone knocking at my door?>

<@LittleMixOffic: @LoveSummerM_xo in 3 –Perrie xo>

<@EleanorJCalder: @LoveSummerM_xo 2>

<@DaniellePeazer: @LoveSummerM_xo 1>

And just then, there was a knock on my door. I quickly jumped up off my couch and sprinted over to the door. I opened it up, and surely enough were my three BBFs (Best British Friends) standing there with big smiles on their faces,

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” the three girls cheered in union.

“El, Dani, Perrie? Whay are you girls doing here?” I asked, still shocked to see them.

“Well it’s been almost three years since we last saw you and Perrie was on break from tour and Eleanor and I were free so we decided to come down to Yale for your birthday!” Danielle said excitedly.

“Oh girls, you’re so considerate to come want to hang out with me today, but I have classes today.” I replied sadly.

“No you don’t!” Perrie chimed in, “We asked your friend Diana who your teachers were and we went and talked to them and they gave us the ok to kidnap you and take you shopping in New York City!”


“Really.” Eleanor smiled.

“Well then, let’s go!” I said. I quickly grabbed my purse and the four of us jumped into the car Perrie rented. She drove, I sat shotgun and Dani and El sat in the back. It took us about an hour to get to New York City and find a mall. As soon as we got to the mall, the paparazzi instantly bombarded us, snapping pics, but they weren’t asking me many questions, most of them wished me a happy birthday. They must be in a good mood today.

“So, are we here looking for anything special today?” I asked the girls.

“Yep, you are looking for dresses.” Eleanor replied.

“Why?” I asked.

Perrie just winked at me and said, “You’ll see. Now before we go shopping, I’m hungry, let’s grab a bite to eat. Okay?”
“Okay, sounds good.” Danielle said. We made our way to the food court and quickly found a spot.

Once we all got our food, we sat down and started to catch up with each other.

Perrie was going on her third world tour with Little Mix.

Eleanor started to take a few classes at Oxford University.

Dani and Liam were living together and they had a dog named Loki, who had just turned one.

“What are you up to Summer?” Perrie asked.

“Um, nothing really. If I pass next year, I’ll be graduating with an English degree and I may start to write novels. I’ve already written one and so I think when I graduate I will send it to a publisher. I might move to London afterwards too!”
“Oh my gosh, you so should move to London.” Dani said.

“Yea. I want to, but I don’t know if I will because of Noah.”

“Bring Noah along! Speaking of him, how’s it going with you two?”

“It’s been going really great. We’ve been together for almost two years. It’s kind of weird though, he still hasn’t texted or messaged me at all today.” I said sadly.

The girls all exchanged a glance and a small smile, then turned back to me.

“What?” I asked

“Nothing.” Eleanor said, “Now, let’s go shopping!”


The four of us each found nice outfits, but I still was unsure why I needed them. This is what we chose:


Just as we were about to leave, Eleanor’s phone rang. She took it out of her purse and looked at the caller ID then looked at us,

“It’s Louis. Come on, let’s go into this Starbucks while I talk to him.”

We all nodded and she answered the phone,

“Hey Boo Bear! What’s up?... Oh okay… Can we just sit down and then you guys can?... awesome, give me 30 seconds.” She covered the speaker on her phone and started to speak to us, “Louis and the lads want to wish you a happy birthday, Summer. Let’s go sit.”

We all did and once we were settled, Eleanor put Louis on speaker,

“Okay Lou, you guys are on speaker, Summer can hear you.” She said

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUMMER!!!! WE LOVE YOU!” I heard four British accents and one Irish one yell into the phone. I laughed,

“Awe thanks guys. I love you too.” I said.

“Now El, can you take me off speaker, I need to talk to you.”
“Okay.” El said and turned off the speaker then pressed the phone to her ear,

“What’s up? … I don’t think that’s a good idea … Why? … Now it’s an even worse idea … ugh fine, but I blame you if something happens … okay.” A mix between a worried and an angry expression crossed Eleanor’s face as she handed her phone to me,

“Here, he wants to talk to you.”
“Who?” I asked

“Don’t be stupid. You know who, but you don’t have to talk to him.”
“I’m not going to ignore him.” I said and reached me hand out, accepting the phone. I got up and walked outside of the Starbucks, and then pressed the phone to my ear,


“Oh my god, Summer. I didn’t think you’d actually talk to me.”
“Why would you think that?”

“Because I cheated on you.”

I let out a heavy sigh, “Harry, you know I know that’s not true.”

“Yea. The guys told me, but I wasn’t sure if they were telling the truth so I just wanted to see.”
“Oh okay. Well why did you want to talk to me?”

“I just wanted to personally wish you a happy birthday.” He said, but I knew that wasn’t all he wanted to say.

“What else Harry?”

“Why does there have to be something else?”

“Because I can tell you have other things to say, so please just say them.”

I hear Harry take a shaky breath and then he finally spoke, “I just… I really miss you Summer. I know I haven’t seen you or even been in contact with you for three years, but I just want you to know that I only didn’t talk to you because it was too hard to not call you mine and now you have this boyfriend and-”

“Harry, just get to the point.” I said, cutting him off.

“Summer, the point is, even after three years, my feelings for you haven’t changed.”
“What are you saying Harry?”
“I’m saying I’m still just as in love with you as I was that summer.”
