Summer Love

Chapter Twenty – Yes

 

   As soon as he finished his sentence, I hung up the phone without a word. I started freaking out. It’s been three years and Harry is still in love with me? He can’t be. I tried to shake what he just said from my mind, but I think those words will be on my brain forever. I walked back into the Starbucks and immediately Perrie, El and Dani’s heads all turned to me,

“Wh-what’d he say?” Eleanor asked.

“Um… he said he’s still in love with me.” I said quietly as I handed Eleanor her phone back.

“I knew I shouldn’t have let him talk to you. I’m sorry babe.”

“It’s alright Eleanor. He told me how he felt nothing wrong with that.”

“How did you respond?” Perrie asked.

“I-I didn’t. I just hung up the phone.” I said and let out a small laugh.

“Well if he were to call back right now, what would you say?”

“What I said to Lou when I was visiting him in Miami last summer, I’m over him.”

Danielle let out a light laugh.

“What?” I asked.

“It’s, it’s just I never in a million years thought you would be OVER Harry Styles.”
“Yea. Me neither.” Perrie added.

“Yea well, I’ve changed in three years. Anyways, it’s five already and it’ll take us an hour to get home, so can we go and just chill or whatever.”

“Okay, let’s go!” Perrie said.

 

The car ride home was basically silent. Eleanor tried to pull up conversation, but it would only die down soon. I couldn’t stop thinking about Harry. I mean I’m 101% over him, but there is just something that’s bothering me about what he said. I tried everything to get my mind off of him. I hummed the song that was stuck in my head, tried to keep up El’s conversation starters, I even started thinking about how hurt I was that my boyfriend and best friend forgot my birthday. I decided to pull out my phone and text Noah

<To Noah: Hey babe>

<From Noah: Hey Summer! How are you?>

<To Noah: I’m fine thanks. Where have you been all day? I haven’t heard from you all day>
<From Noah: Sorry babe. I’ve been busy. I gotta go. I’ll call you later. Bye babe>

 

I put down my phone. We continued to drive and Eleanor picked up another conversation,

“So, do you want to do tonight?”

“I don’t really know.”

“Want to go to a club or something and party?” Perrie offered, “You can wear the new dress you bought.”
“Yea. Sounds good. None of my friends seemed to remember anyway.” I sighed.

 

When we got home, we went right up to my room and changed into our outfits, painted our nails, did our makeup and hair, then headed downstairs. When we got to the common room of my dorm, it was pitch black.

“Why the heck is it so dark in here?” I asked the girls, but I got no response.

Feeling the walls, I made my way to the light switch. I flicked it on and when I did, I basically jumped out of my skin, because probably about 60-100 people jumped out and yelled

“SURPRISE!!!”

My hands flew over my mouth in complete shock, I was so happy. First, Diana ran up to me,

“Happy birthday babe!!!!!!” she said as she gave me a big hug.

Next El, Dani and Perrie joined me, “THIS is why we had to take you out. You needed a party outfit and we needed you out of the common room.” Danielle said with a big smile. They gave me a hug then went to join the rest of the part. Just then, I felt a strong pair of arms wrap around my waist.

“Happy birthday Summer. Did you actually think I’d forget?” I felt his warm breath on my ear. I turned around and kissed him. It was so nice. It lingered on and on full off passion, but something felt different then it usually did. I just brushed off the feeling as we pulled away.

“I love you Noah.”

“I love you too Summer, with all my heart.”

 

We spent the night dancing, eating dinner and drinking. I don’t enjoy alcohol that much, so I didn’t get drunk. Not very many people did and those who were drunk weren’t incredibly tipsy.

At around 11, I heard Eleanor yell,

“OKAY PEOPLES!!!!!!!!!!! It’s present time!”

Everyone crowded around a big table that had presents on it. Diana handed me a box,

“Here, your dad, Sandra and Kristy sent this.”

I opened it and it revealed a brand new MacBook Pro. I smiled,

“Sweet!”

Next I opened my gift from Diana, which was a spa day for the both of us and we will do it next weekend. I continued to open gifts. I got clothes, gift cards and some other random gifts. Now there were only three boxes left on the table. One from Perrie, Eleanor and Danielle that was fairly small, one in another small box but I didn’t know who it was from and the other was from Noah. I picked up Noah’s, but before I could open it, Diana, Noah, Perrie, El and Dani all yelled,

“NO!”

I set the box down, “What?”

“Nothing, just open our gift first please!” Perrie begged.

“Um, okay…” I said hesitantly. I picked up their box and opened it to reveal a beautiful diamond bracelet. I looked up at the girls,

“Girls, it’s beautiful. You really didn’t have to.”

“I know. We wanted to though.” Perrie said happily.

“Well thank you.” I said as I stood up and gave them a hug, “Now can I open Noah’s gift?”

“Um, wait, open this one first. I want you to open mine last.” Noah said. He handed me the box that had no tag on it, but it was a really small box. I carefully unwrapped it to reveal a box that usually would hold a necklace or ring or earrings or something like that. I opened the box and found a little note and I read it in my head,

 

‘Summer,

I wanted you to have this so that no matter where you are or who you are with, you still have a piece of me. I love you so much and I was an idiot for letting you go, but I know that Noah will treat you like the queen you are.

I’m sorry for hurting you. I love you, always have, always will.

-Harry <3’

 

I looked down in the box to see a very familiar airplane necklace. I felt a small tear drip down my face, but quickly wiped it away. I looked up at the girls.

“What is it?” Danielle asked.

Unable to speak, I just held up the necklace. The three girls went wide eyed and their mouths hung open.

“Oh. My. God.” The three said.

“What is it?” Noah asked.

“Um, it’s nothing.” I replied and put it on, “It’s just a necklace a close friend gave me.”
“Oh, okay, well here is my gift, open it.”

I put on a smile and accepted Noah’s gift. I took off the wrapping paper and it revealed a box similar to the one Harry’s necklace came in, but what was inside was very different. I opened the box and saw a stunning diamond ring.

“Oh my god.” was all I managed to say. I looked up at Noah, but ended up having to look down because Noah was on one knee. He took my hand,

“Summer Marie Mason, I love you more than anything. You are a fantastic girl and I don’t think ever in my life am I going to meet someone as amazing as you. I know we are only 21 and haven’t finished university yet, but I’m willing to wait. You are perfect to me. I know I’m not Harry Styles and I probably won’t be able to give you as much as he did, but I can promise you that I’ll love you just as much and more and be there for you wherever, whenever. Summer Mason, will you do me the incredible honor of becoming my wife?” he said and looked at me with hopeful eyes.

Unable to speak because I was so overwhelmed and happy, plus my voice would squeak because I’m crying, I simply nodded. Everyone clapped and a big smile crossed Noah’s face as he placed the ring on my finger. I looked up at the girls and Diana, who were cheering and clapping and giving me thumbs up. I continued to smile and look around, but when I looked back down into Noah’s happy eyes, Harry’s face instantly entered my mind.
