7. Sorting it out

After I had finished eating the breakfast which I had to make myself on my birthday, I kissed Harry goodbye, put my denim jacket on and headed to Sufia's. I received a text message just as I was passing the hotel. It was from Mum telling me to drop in so she was lucky as all I had to do was head in the gates. I met mum at reception. 

"Happy birthday darling!" She squealed and before I had a moment to object she had pulled me in for a tight hug. I struggled to breath she was squeezing me so tightly. 

"Thanks mum but I think you can lay off a bit!" I wheezed. She let go and brushed my dress down smiling. 

"Oh I'm sorry honey but your 22 soon you'll be too old for hugs!" She explained. 

"I already am!" I laughed sarcastically but I could see by her glassy eyes she was being dead serious so I stopped. 

"I must say, as much as I think Harold-" I cut her off. "Harry!!"

"Yes Harry is a bad influence..you have matured since you met him Charlene....and Niall!"She quickly added on at the end.

"Mum!" I moaned rolling my eyes and sighing.

"Sorry!" She said pulling out a parcel wrapped in green and pink striped wrapping paper. "For you!" I hugged her once again and then decided to open it. Inside I found a black leather purse. 

"Awh thanks Mum y-" when she cut me off. "Open it!" She ordered. I shot her a confused look. "Open!" She told me again. So I sighed once  again and did as she said. To my shock when I opened it I found £4,500. I gasped. 

"Mum what are you thinking? W-we can't afford this. Ho- but how?"I asked absolutely stunned. 

"But we can! See when your dad was murdered in Australia he left you £4,500..at that moment though I didn't think you we're mature enough or ready enough..or even needed it enough! But now you do..you know with your new apartment and you probably don't want Harry to be paying for it all, it's a little independence...oh you really have grown up to be a beautiful woman." Mum told me. 

"Oh I love you so much Mum!" I admitted. "I love you too!" 

Once I had finished talking to Mum I headed out the door to Sufia's. I knocked on the door and Zayn answered. 

"Hey Charlie Happy birthday!" He told me. I laughed. "Thanks Zayn, is..you know?" "Yeah sure c'mon in, I'll make you some coffee..she's in the sitting room!" Zayn told me. "Thanks!" I smiled making my way into the sitting room to find Sufia curled up on the couch. 

"Hey girl!" I said sitting down next to her. "Oh hi Charlie, happy birthday babes!!" She laughed pulling me into a hug. 

"Haha thanks!" I replied.
