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?

Summer Love

Chapter Twelve – Let the hunt begin


That’s exactly what we did. We made those two weeks count. I kept my happy face on, and over the course of those 14 days, I saw the sadness in his eyes fade into happiness, which made me more genuinely happy. Harry and I did everything. Days on the beach, dinners, picnics, movie nights at home or out, spending time with the guys, El, Dani and Perrie and going to the zoo. We even learned how to surf!


But tonight was the big finale, the last day. Tomorrow I leave for Yale and Harry and the other guys go home to the UK. Harry wasn’t telling me what his plan for tonight, he just told me to dress nice, but not so fancy I look like I should be at an awards show and that he would be at my house to pick me up at 7PM.  I will be spending all of today with Eleanor, Danielle and Perrie.


The girls showed up at my house at 11AM sharp. I opened the door all ready to go and the four of us headed off to the mall. As we drove, we talked and laughed and told boyfriend stories,

“… And basically it ended up with Louis doing a face plant at the airport in front of all of his fans because that’s how excited he was to see me.” Eleanor laughed. We all joined in on the laughter, but what came to my mind was how much I was going to miss this. I was never going to share relationship stories with these girls again. I was never going to go shopping with them, or play beach volleyball. I wouldn’t go support the boys at concerts with them. As soon as Harry got a new girlfriend, I would be nothing but a distant memory to them. I pushed that thought away. I was just going to enjoy today with three of my summer best friends and then enjoy the few hours of time I would have left with my boyfriend.

The girls knew all about my date tonight, so they helped me get completely ready. When we first got to the mall, we went to Sephora to choose my makeup for tonight. Next we went to pick out my outfit, shoes and accessories for tonight and this is what we came up with in the end:

I looked at the time,

“Oh wow, it’s already 2:00. Do you girls want to go grab a bite to eat?” I asked.

“Sure! I’m starved,” Perrie said, “There is a Nando’s in the mall. Let’s go eat there.”


We quickly got to Nando’s and because the lunch rush was over, it wasn’t very busy. There were a few fans in the restaurant and the four of us gladly took pictures with them. We were served our food about 15 minutes after we ordered and we were so hungry that we instantly dug in.

Once we finished, we all stayed for a bit and had a cup of tea and chatted. There was silence for a period of time and during that time I thought about how tonight, Harry was going to break up with me, and I wanted to talk about it, but I wasn’t sure if the girls knew, so I decided to maybe drift towards the subject to see if they knew anything,

“Hey Dani? Can I ask you something?”

“Sure. What’s up?”

“Remember when you and Liam broke up for a bit a few months ago? What happened?”

Danielle let out a chuckle, “Oh that. It was really stupid. So basically management thought I was hurting Liam’s career, so they told him to break up with me. He refused, but then when they threatened the band, Liam didn’t really have a choice. So a few days later, he just broke it off with me. I don’t remember the reason; I just remember it was something so weird, I knew it wasn’t true. Anyways, heartbroken, I let him go. Then a few weeks later, we were both in New York and he called me and asked if we could meet and he told me everything and that he missed me. Then he went to management and said that he didn’t care what they said, he wanted to be with me. Management saw that the fans did like us together and One Direction’s popularity had gone down a tad without me, so they let us get back together, no threats or anything.”

“Oh that’s good.”
“Yep… why do you ask?”

“I dunno. I just have a weird feeling about tonight, I feel like Harry might end it with me because of Yale and Britain.” I mumble. Eleanor instantly hugged me,

“Don’t worry Summer. Harry loves you. He won’t break up with you.”

Okay, so either they knew and were lying or had no clue. With how sincere they sounded, I’m going to guess they didn’t have a clue.

“Anyways… your hair appointment starts in fifteen minutes, so we should go.”

“Okay, let’s go!” I said. We split the check and tip, grabbed all of our shopping bags and headed to the salon. The other girls were going to get their hair done for fun too. I decided to just give my hair a little trim, because I prefer it long. As for styling, they straightened it, but gave the ends a little bit of a curl and in the end, it looked great. Perrie decided to dye her hair from purple to blonde with some pink and purple highlights. Eleanor just got a trim and some highlights and lowlights and Dani got a perm.

Next we headed back to my place to get me ready. Once I was all dressed, Eleanor did my makeup. She put on a thin line of black eyeliner on my top lid. Then she put mascara on my eyelashes and curled them. For my lips, she put on a light and soft pink lipstick and then a little bit of clear lip-gloss to give them some shine. The makeup looked really natural, which was good, because I hated caking myself in 50 pounds of makeup, plus Harry liked when I looked natural. Once I was all finished, the girls looked all over me, making sure my hair was perfect, my makeup wasn’t smudged and my dress wasn’t wrinkled and after all of my final touch ups, the girls smiled, signaling their job was complete.

“You look perfect Summer.” Perrie said

“I agree. Tonight is going to be amazing. Harry is going to drop dead when he sees you.” Eleanor added.

“Speaking of Harry, it’s already 6:50, we should go, he’ll be here soon.” Danielle pointed out.

“Okay, well thanks girls, for everything.” I said. All the girls exchanged a sad look.
“What is it?” I asked

“The three of us are flying home tonight… so I think this is it.” Danielle said sadly.
“Really?” I frowned

“Sadly.” Perrie said. I pulled all the girls in for a hug,

“I’m going to miss you three so much. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I’ll never forget you guys.”

“We won’t forget you either. If we are ever in New York, we will come visit you at Yale.” Eleanor said and I could hear her voice crack.

“Awe El, don’t cry.”

“I’m sorry. We should go before I turn into a mess.”
“Okay girls. I’ll see you around.” I said as I walked them to the door. I gave them a final hug and watched them get into Louis’ car, which we had borrowed for the day. I went and sat down in the living room and waited for Harry. At exactly 7PM, I heard a knock on the door. I got up and opened the door with a smile, but it faded when no one was there. I was about to close it when I noticed a little white envelop. I picked it up and opened it,


I decided to make tonight fun before the actual date started, so you have to find the location of our date by following the riddles. I’m pretty sure you can figure most of them out on your own, but if you are really stuck, text me.

I love you,


P.S. The first riddle is in the envelope. Good luck babe. ;) ‘


Oh so that’s how tonight was going to go. Well I want to see Harry really badly, so let the hunt begin.
