A New Love

A meet and greet that becomes so much more for two young girls. Together they find a new love with the boys.


16. Happy Birthday

*November 21*

Nicole's POV

Wow. Louis had been gone for almost three months. Tomorrow was my 23rd birthday. Louis was 22 also. He was turning 23 in December, making me a month older. He hates when I throw that in his face but oh well. I put in the movie P.S. I Love You and got cozy on the couch. Louis' letters really cheered me up. He made sure that I got them at 6:03 (The date we had our first date on) every single day. Some were short, some long. I looked forward to them everyday. Sometimes it was all that got me through the day, knowing that I would have a letter coming. I opened up the letter.

Dear Nicole,

Only 9 more days until you see me again! So how was school today? I know the kids can be a lot to handle, but you're tough. Tomorrow is your 23rd birthday. Pretty exciting isn't it? I so wish I could be there to help you celebrate. I want you to go and buy yourself something nice. Tomorrow's letter has a gift with it. I just want you to know that I love you so much and we'll celebrate like crazy when I return. I love you and man do I miss you. Everyday I think 'I'm one day closer to seeing Nicole!' But I only miss you more. I can't wait to hold you in my arms and watch you sleep as we watch a movie. So enjoy movie night. And I really wish I was there. My mom will be over tomorrow to make sure you celebrate. Love you darling.

Always and Forever,


I wiped away my usual tears and watched the movie. Once that was over I realized I hadn't had any dinner. I popped some leftover pizza in the microwave. When that was done I took it into the living room for movie #2, The Notebook. I was willing to cry again. I fell asleep about halfway through it.

Louis' POV

I quietly walked into the house. I was going to surprise Nicole for her birthday. The tour was over, but I told her it went on until the end of November. I had to keep it up with the letters, the count down, and everything had to seem realistic. I walked into the living room to see Nicole was watching The Notebook, but she had fallen asleep, like always. To make sure she was really asleep I dropped my stuff. She didn't even flinch. I picked her up and carried her to our bedroom. I gently laid her on the bed and watched her sleep for a minute. I returned downstairs to turn off the TV and clean up a little bit. I was actually really surprised at how clean the entire house was. Once I was finished downstairs I went to the guest bedroom to sleep. I didn't want Nicole to know I was home until tomorrow. I would make sure to wake up early and make the guest bed and what not. Tomorrow was Saturday she probably wouldn't wake up until 9.

*Next Day*

Nicole's POV

I woke up in my bed. “What?” I said audibly. It was 9:29. I fell asleep on the couch watching The Notebook.Suddenly I remembered it was my birthday. My phone buzzed, it was from Louis.

“Happy Birthday Beautiful. I love you! Xoxo Louis”

“Thank you. Will you call me? Xoxo Nicole”

“Um I can't right now. What's up?”

“Nothing, I'll tell you when we can talk.”

“You sure?”


“Ok, well if you need me text me.” As I walked downstairs, I saw my mess was cleaned up. Could it have been Johanna? No. She would have let me sleep on the couch. Strange.

Louis' POV

I knew Nicole was going to Starbucks. She left a note just in case my mom came when she was gone, but my mom wasn't actually coming. Everyone knew about this, except Nicole. I was really glad that her friends kept it a secret. It made everything so much more special. I heard her car pull into the driveway. Crap! I wasn't ready for her to be home. Time to hide in the guest room again.

Nicole's POV

I was on my way to Starbucks when I realized I forgot my wallet. I walked in the house and I heard a door shut inside. “Hello? Is someone here?” I grabbed my wallet and dialed the security guy for the house.


“Hello Geoff. It's Nicole.”

“Oh hello Nicole. Is everything all right?”

“I think someone is in my house. I forgot my wallet and when I walked back in I heard a door shut.”

“Nobody came in. Are you sure you weren't just hearing things?”

“I guess.” I knew something was up, but I didn't want to figure it out, so I left.

Louis' POV

Wow. That was a close call. I left the guest room and went down to the kitchen and got the three dozen roses out of the mini fridge, Nicole never looks in that fridge. Two dozen of the roses were for her, the other one was for flower petals.

Starbucks was fifteen minutes away, and depending on how busy they were would depend on how long she took, so I had a least half an hour to get this all set up.

I scattered the petals from the front door to the master bath. There I would run her a nice hot bath. Of course not until she was closer to home, I wanted it to remain hot. I got chocolate covered strawberries out of the mini fridge along with a bottle of champagne. I took them upstairs to the bedroom.

It had been 20 minutes, it was crunch time. I started to run the bath, remembering that we had a heated bathtub. I took half of the left over petals and placed them on the floor of our bedroom and over the bed. The other half of the petals I placed in the tub.

I had also bought some massage oils that I figured Nicole would like. I really wanted to make this birthday special for her.

I have a dinner reservation for us at “Dabbous,” one of the nicest restaurants in London. I had told Nicole about it many times, but we never had a chance to go there. So I called and me being me, got a reservation there.

Then after dinner, I had arranged for a little get together for her. All her close friends were invited. Niall, V, Nick, Zayn, Li, Dani, Harry, Emma, and a few others. It was at our house, but she wouldn't know about it. It was going to be a night of surprise!

This was the night I wanted to propose to her; however, I got a little ahead of myself. But I don't regret it one bit! While I was away she actually got a lot of planning done. I found her wedding planning book last night when I was cleaning.

Just as I finished I heard Nicole's car pull into the driveway. Ok. Game time. Where to be? I decided to hide in the trunk where we keep extra blankets and pillows. And it just happened to be in the bathroom. I heard her open the door.

Nicole's POV

I had just returned from Starbucks with my Tall Skinny Vanilla Latte. They were my weakness, and since it was my birthday I figured why not. Honestly, this birthday was unimportant to me. It was just 23. Nothing really exciting about it. I got my keys out and walked in.

“What the...?” I said audibly. I saw rose petals scattered on the ground. If Johanna did this, it's sweet, but a tad weird. I decided to follow them. They led to the bathroom. “Ok?” I said turning the knob, entering the bathroom. I walk in and see a full bath with rose petals and candles. This was getting more and more strange. I walked to the bedroom to get some clothes, I might as well enjoy my bath. I walk in the bedroom to see more rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries, and champagne. “Louis?” I said secretly hoping it was him. I knew it couldn't have been though. Maybe it was Nick. She knew that I was upset that Lou wasn't here.

I walked back in the bathroom and got in the tub. The water was so hot. The rose petals made the bath so nice. I leaned my head back and relaxed.

“SURPRISE LOVE!” Louis said jumping out of the blanket trunk.

“AHHH!” I screamed before realizing it was him. “Louis?!” I said in disbelief.

“Miss me?” He said before giving me a passionate kiss.

“So much!” I said crying.

“Aw! Don't cry love!” He said rubbing my back.

“I'm just so happy you're here!” I said giving him another kiss.

“Happy Birthday, Love.”


“You're so old!”

“Oh shut up! You'll be 23 in a month!” I said sticking my tongue out at him.

“Shhh!!” He said plugging his ears.

After I finished my bath I quickly got dressed. And ran into the bedroom. “So Louis, what do you have planned now?” I said sitting on his lap.

“A few things.” He said before pulling me into a long kiss.

“Oh, ok!” I said winking.

“I got chocolate covered strawberries! And champagne!” He said proudly.

“I know! I see them!” I said as if I were talking to a little kid.

“Can we eat them?” He said giving me puppy dog eyes.

“Of course!”


“So we have dinner reservations for 6:00 and we have to leave at 5:30. Be ready!” Louis said with a quick kiss before hopping out of bed.

“Where?!” I shouted.

“It's a surprise!” He said before dashing out of the room. It was 4:00. That gave me an hour and a half to be ready.

I hopped in the shower to wash off the massage oil Louis put on my back, and I needed to wash my hair. Once I was done in the shower I decided to leave my hair down, but straighten it. I had medium length, dark brown, curly hair. I put on a black dress that went about mid thigh. I put on some black sparkly high heels. I also put on my locket that my pap gave me. It was my grams, she passed away and I inherited a lot of her jewelry. I put on some make-up to really make my blue eyes pop.

I dress up everyday, as a teacher, but this was a totally different type of dressing up. I took one final look in the mirror. I looked pretty freakin' great! I checked the clock it was 5:25. Wow. Cutting it a little close. I walk out of the bathroom and see Louis wearing a suit. He's sitting on the bed texting or something like that.

“Hey boo, I'm ready to go.” I say smiling.

“Nicole. Wow. You, uh, wow.” Louis was speechless, for once!

“You said that already!” I said laughing.

“Is it my birthday?” He said taking my hand.

“You wish!” I said teasing.

We got in Louis' car. We made the 25 minute trip to the secret restaurant. When we finally pulled into the parking lot I was speechless.

“Dabbous!?” I said smiling.

“Only the best for my princess on her birthday.” He said before kissing my hand.

“Louis, thank you.” I said smiling.

“Love, it's just dinner.” He said laughingly.

“No. For everything.” I said before kissing him. He got out of the car and opened my door for me. “Thanks, love.” I said, giving him a kiss on the cheek.

“Tomlinson. Party of two, reservation for 6:00.”

“Mr. Tomlinson.” The host said with a head nod. “Right this way.” We followed him to a table in the back.

“I figured we had less of a chance of getting mobbed back here.” Louis said smiling.

“Definitely. So I got a lot of wedding planning done!”

“Really? Like what?”

“Well I booked a church, it was the one I emailed you pictures of. And I booked a reception hall, nothing to fancy. I picked our colors, mint green and light pink. I'm not really a pink person, but they look so pretty together! And let's see, I picked out the bridesmaids dresses. I still have to choose my wedding party though. I definitely want V, Nick, Jess, Em, and Dani.”

“Well that works, because I wanted Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry, and Josh.”

“Then it's settled! I think Jess should be with Harry, and Em with Josh?”

“Yeah, that's fine.”

“Alright, and let's see what else do I have done? I don't know, but there's more.”

“Let me pick the honeymoon spot! Please!”

“Sure, and oh! I know what I wanted to ask you, what should we do for music?”

“Well I'm sure you girls will wanna sing, and the lads and I will want to sing too. So should we have a DJ, then karaoke?”

“Perfect.” I was seriously so happy. I had the perfect life. Sure, Lou and I fought, and there were always problems, but the good definitely out weighs the bad.

“Miss?” The waitress said.

“Yes?” I said jolted back to reality. I was so focused on how great life was I didn't even hear her.

“To drink?”

“Oh sorry. I'll have whatever he is having.” I said pointing to Louis.

“What were you thinking about?” Louis said nosily.

“Just life, and how great it is.”

“Ahh.” Louis said before giving me a quick kiss across the table.
