The Birthday Wish


5. Chapter 4: Scouts Honor

The bell rang for class and everyone went their separate ways. I decided to walk with Mariah to class, since we had this one together, and right when we were about to walk in Niall bumped into us. “I’m so sorry.” He said and looked up and realized it was us. “Don’t worry about it.” Mariah said and kept walking in not making eye contact. I looked at Niall and said “She’s not feeling too good right now. Something is bothering her.” Then smiled and walked in and sat next to her. I looked back at the doorway and saw Niall looking at Mariah and then walk away. As the end of the day approached us I kept thinking about Mariah. She’s the only true friend I have right now. The last thing I want to do is be a horrible friend.

            The bell ring for the end of the day and Ed tells me that he wants to meet me at the first spot we met in school. I walk down the hall to where we met thinking 'what is he going to do now?' “Hey babe, did you miss me?” I say with a smile. “DUH! Do you even have to ask?” He says with a laugh. I look at him thinking about what I had asked him about lunch. “Oh yeah so what did Niall want at lunch?” He looked at me smiling and said “We are walking home so I can tell you the whole thing.” “Okay.” Shortly after Mariah came and asked “Hey Sally, are you still going to need a ride home?” I shook my head. “No. Ed’s going to walk me home since he lives nearby. But thank you anyways. I will call you as soon as I get home.” She looked at me and said “Okay well, bye then.” with a sad sound in her voice.

            We started walking towards home hand and hand. Ed looked at me with a smile and said “So…what did you think?” for a minute I didn't know what he was talking about but then I don’t know how someone could forget. “Oh…” I said with a laugh “I loved it Edward. That’s the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me, and for that, I just want to thank you.” After I said that he stopped me. I turned to look at him and all of a sudden I saw him on his knee. The only thing this could mean is a proposal. Right? But then he says “Look Sally, I know this has all gone by so fast but I want you to know that I love you and I will always love you, no matter what, that’s why I want to give this to you.”

            Ed took out a box and gave it to me still on his knee. I took it from his hand and opened the box only to see a ring with a little blue heart shaped stud matching the color of his eyes. “This ring is a symbol of my love for you. I want you to know that I’m the real deal. This is my promise to you that I’m going to be loyal and faithful to you and only you.” As he spoke his words I could feel tears forming in my eyes. He stood up and looked at me with nervousness. The only thing I could think was ‘Wow! I don’t know what to say.’ But then my words finally came out. “I’m glad that out of anyone I could have run into at the store it was you. You've done so much already to make me happy and this is the cherry on top. Thank you babe, for everything.” I looked into his eyes and gave him a kiss.

            We started to walk again even closer than we had before; then Ed remembers to tell me about the whole Niall thing. “Oh so Niall was talking to me about Mariah. He wanted to know if she was going to Winter Formal with anyone. I think he wants to ask her.” What he was saying was news to my ears only because Mariah had been feeling left out when Ed did something for me. “We were talking about that in class today. But when she bumped into Niall she didn't even talk to him. Do you think he likes her?” He looked at me thinking ‘You’re not going to play match maker are you?’ I looked back and said “What? It’s just a question. And besides I know Mariah would love to be able to have someone like Niall as a date. How is he going to ask her?” “I will tell you but you can’t tell her anything. Promise?”

            I cross my heart and raise my hand saying “Scouts honor.” Ed laughs and says “I didn't know you were a scout.” I laugh and say “Just tell me babe.” “Okay Niall says he wants to do the same thing I did for you and sing a song.” “Wait how is he going to do that?” I was thinking about how Niall was going to pull it off and Ed interrupted my thoughts and said “He’s going to see if the principal will hold an assembly in the gym tomorrow and I’m going to sing with him for support.” Niall was clever to think about the assembly thing. “Mariah is going to love it. Don’t worry I won’t say a word.” We arrived at my house and Ed was about to kiss me goodbye when my dad opened the door. “Is this the boy you were talking about Sally?”
