The Birthday Wish


18. Chapter 17: It's My Party, I'll Cry If I Want To

     (Sally's POV) Its my birthday and I miss Ed like crazy. Right when I woke up I decided to call him. The phone rang 3 times and went  straight to his voice mail. "Hey honey its me just wanted to tell you how much I miss you. Call me when you get a chance. I love you!" I sat there wondering if he had forgotten my birthday. A knock on my bedroom door scared me. "Come in." I say cautiously. "Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! happy birthday dear Sally! Happy birthday to you! Make a wish sweetheart." My mom said as she held the cake to my face.
    I closed my eyes and whispered "I wish Ed could be here for my birthday." as a blew out the candles. My mom smiled at me "What did you wish for?" I looked at my mom laughing "You already know what I wished for." "Well sweetie you know he's busy with family. After all it is the holidays." I nodded and started to get out of bed. Everything was going the way I had hoped. The door bell rang I walked to get it crossing my fingers hoping it would be Ed. I open the door "Hey girl! Happy B-day!" Mariah's voice filled the room. "Happy birthday Sally!" Niall said as he tried to get past Mariah to give me a hug. I knew it was too good to be true.
    "So what are we doing today?" Mariah said in an exciting voice.  I looked at her and shrugged my shoulders. "I know!" Niall said. Mariah shot him an evil look. "Mariah don't look at this poor innocent man like that. What were you going to say Niall  you have my permission to speak." Mariah rolled her eyes and looked at Niall. "Well I was going to say we could go ice skating then go out for lunch." Mariah and I looked at each other and nodded. "That's the best idea ever. Thank you Niall. Today is going to be awesome." I said hugging him and giving him a kiss on the cheek. "Well missy you better get dressed and wear something warm." 
    I walked back to my room the closer I got I could here my phone ringing. I started to run and answered as fast as I could. "Hello?" A deep British accent spoke. "Is this Sally Martinez?" I furrow my brows together "Yes. This is she." "One moment please. 3, 2, 1." The voice says as someone sings a song. "...This is the start of something beautiful you are the start of something new." I was crying tears of joy. There is only one person I know who sings that can make me cry happy tears. "Hello love." Ed said into the phone. "Hi my Eddie. I miss you so much and thank you so much for the song it was so cute I cried." I said with a laugh. "I'm glad you liked it princess. I have something to tell you."
    I sat myself down thinking to myself 'This is going to be good news.' Ed takes a deep breath "Well you see management wants me to stay out here till school starts up again." My mouth dropped a lonely tear ran down my face. "This is too hard to hear. I thought you were going to come down for my birthday or at least Christmas." He takes a deep breath into the phone. "I'm sorry love I tried as hard as I could to see if management would let me and they said no. I'll make it up to you I promise." My head fell as I started to tear up. "Okay. Well hey I have to go right now my mom is calling me." I say as a tear falls down my cheek. "I love you Sally." "I love you too Ed."
    I hung up the phone and gabbed my coat. I knew I had to put on a smile since I was going out. "Hey are you ready to go skating?" Mariah looks at me with a huge smile on her face. I nod and we head out the door. Right when we got there Mariah went to pay and Niall came to talk to me. "Hey Sally, is something bothering you?" I look at him, smile and nod. "Well spit it out." He says laughing. "Its just I really wanted Ed to be here not for Christmas but for my birthday." He laughed. "There will be plenty of birthdays. But I'm sure he will try and make it. He really loves you." I look up at Niall and hug him. "Thank you Niall. That's just the thing I needed to hear."
