46. Happy Birthday!

Ella's P.O.V

I woke up and checked my phone. I had loads of messages and missed calls from family and friends; probably calling to wish me a happy birthday. Then I looked at the time.

It's only 6:30. Why do I have to wake up so early? I roll over in bed and see that Harry wasn't there. I called out his name but I got a reply of silence.

I climbed out of bed and got into the shower, feeling the hot water peirce my skin before it cooled down to just the right temparature. I poured on the shower gel, quickly rinsing it off. I grabbed my razor and quickly shaved my under arms and legs. I squirted some shampoo onto my hand and lathered it into my hair. After washing it off, I massaged in the conditioner.

When I was finished, I brushed my teeth. Then I dried my hair and put it up into a messy bun. I quickly got dressed, not really paying any attention to what I was putting on.

I turned around to make the bed and Harry was laying there. Snoring. I moved to wake him up but he pulled me down next to him.

"Harry, let me go," I whined.

"No," He protested, "I need to give you your birthday present."

"Fine," I sighed, resring your head on his chest.

"Do you like it?" Harry asked, looking at you.

"Like what?" I was puzzled.

Harry turned over and on the back of his blue onsie were the words 'I Love Ella Thorpe' printed in white on the back. I giggled and gave him a quick peck on the lips.

"And you've got a matching one, too," He smirked, throwing me another onsie.

I looked on the back and, sure enough, it said 'I Love Harry Styles'.

"Haz, I love it," I smiled.

"Are you gonna put it on?" He asked.

I nodded and stripped down so you were just in your underwear. Then, I threw the onsie on.

"Let's go downstairs, everyone's waiting for you," Harry smiled, leading I out of the door.

"Happy birthday, Ella!" Everyone shouted when I walked through the door.

I blushed, thanking them. I sat down and everyone crowded around me.

"This is from all of us," Liam smiled, passing me an envelope.

I opened it and there were Union J tickets inside. I grinned at them.

"Thanks, guys," I gave each of them a hug.

"This is from me," Louis passed me a wrapped box.

I opened it and there was the Ted Baker bag I'd wanted for the past year.

"Lou, you shouldn't have," I squealed and he just smirked.

After about an hour, I was finally done.

Danielle and Liam had gotten me about £120 worth of clothes and jewellery. Niall got me about £100 worth of make up and hair stuff. Zayn gave me £100 and he was going to take me shopping wherever I wanted.

"Mum and Dad are gonna be home in a couple of hours and they're bringing Tom, Lucy and Elisca. They said they're sorry they couldn't be back in time for when you woke up," Danielle explained and I nodded.

We all thought it'd be a good idea to watch some films. My parents had just downloaded Netflix so we decided to just watch loads of programmes on there. The first film we picked was called 'Abduction' and Louis picked it out. The only reason he picked it was because it had Jacob from Twilight (Taylor Lautner) in it.

It was a really good film and by the end of it, everyone was asleep except me and Harry.

"Ella, let's go back upstairs to bed," He seductively whispered in my ear, kissing the spot bellow it.

"Harry..." I sighed as he began to turn you on.

"Please? I need you," He whined.

I gave in and let him carry you bridal style up to your bedroom. A couple of hours later, someone knocked at the door.

"Come in," I called, slipping into my onesie.

"Happy birthday!" My mum, dad, uncle, auntie and new cousin were standing at the door.

"Let's go downstairs, Harry's asleep," I explained and they began to look guilty.

Once you were sat down, you held your arms out for Elisca. She flashed a toothless smile at you, she must've recognized you from the night before.

"Your mum told me you really wanted these," Tom smiled.

My mum and uncle Tom were very close as they were twin brother and sister.

I opened them and found the whole series of 'The Vampire Journals'. I grinned and gave my uncle and auntie a big hug.

"Thank you so much!" I giggled.

"Ella, who got you that onsie?" My mum asked.

"Harry," I laughed and she nodded in realisation.

"Anyway, here's our present. I know it's not a lot but your mother will take you shopping soon," My dad smiled, passing me a heavy box.

I opened it quickly and inside there was a brand new laptop. I squealed and ran to give my mum and dad a huge hug.

Danielle and Liam walked down the stairs with their hair everywhere. They must have just woke up.

Danielle's eyes immediately brightened when she saw what I was holding. She ran over to me and quickly snatched Elisca, smiling like a big goof. We all laughed at her and Lucy went to heat up Elisca's bottle.

I spent about half an hour chatting to my uncle Tom and auntie Lucy. After a bit, my phone beeped, telling me I had a new message.

SexyH: Where r u? xx

Me: Downstairs talking to my auntie and uncle, why? xx

SexyH: I miss u :( xx

Me: I'll be up in a minute, hold on a sec xx

SexyH: Be quick xx

Me: I will xx

My auntie looked over my shoulder and read the text messages from Harry.

"Go see him, I'll cover up for you," She whispered in my ear.

"Thanks, Auntie Lucy," I smiled gratefully at her before rushing up the stairs.


Harry's P.O.V

I woke up and Ella wasn't lying next to me, like she was before. I groaned and grabbed my phone from my bedside table.


Me: Where r u? xx

MyBaby: Downstairs talking to my auntie and uncle, why? xx

Me: I miss u :( xx

MyBaby: I'll be up in a minute, hold on a sec xx

Me: Be quick xx

MyBaby: I will xx


Five minutes later, she walked through the door. I reached my arms out and she came and sat next to me, snuggling into my chest.

"I love you," My voice was muffled as I spoke into her hair.

"I love you, too," She smiled.

We stayed cuddled together, just talking about what we wanted for the future. After a couple of hours, there was a knock at the door. Ella slid out of my embrace and went to answer it.

"Lucy and Tom are taking Elisca home but they want to see you before they go," Louis explained.

"Haz, are you coming?" Ella turned round to look at me.

I nodded and followed her and Louis out of the door. Lucy was waiting at the bottom of the stairs.

"Have a good day, I hope you liked our present," She smiled as she gave Ella a tight hug.

"I know it's short notice, but could you babysit Elisca at the weekend? She was supposed to come a few weeks earlier and we booked a holiday with your mum and dad. Danielle was going to do it but she's too scared becuase Elisca's so young," Tom asked.

"Yeah, sure. That's not a problem. Just bring her over on Friday anytime after 6," Ella smiled, hugging her uncle quickly.

"Thank you so much for the books. I've wanted them for ages!" She added.

She gave Elisca a quick kiss on the cheek before leading them out of the house.

"When are we going to set up the hall?" Louis asked me.

"Now, can you ask Danielle to occupy Ella for a couple of hours?" I asked.

"Yeah, I'll do it now. You go get the other boys," He began to walk into the kitchen to find Danielle.

Once I'd rounded all the boys up, we met Louis at the front door. Just as we were leaving, Ella walked through the door.

"Where are you going?" She gave us a suspicious look.

"We're going to get food and drink for tonight," Niall blurted.

"What's happening tonight, then?" She asked.

"Nothing, Niall just means we're going to watch some movies and stuff," Zayn quickly covered up.

"Okay," She didn't look convinced but she left anyway.

As soon as we were in the car, I slapped Niall at the back of his head.

"Niall, why do you have to give everything away?" Liam slapped his arm.

"Guys, if you don't stop hitting me, you're gonna have a passed out driver," Niall complained, putting the key in the ignition.

We stopped at ASDA to get loads of food, drink, decorations and all the other stuff we needed. After paying for everything, we got back in the car and drove to the hall that we'd booked.

Once inside, we set everything up and it was done within two hours. Louis grabbed his laptop and began to write a list of names:


Ella Thorpe

One Direction (Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson)

Danielle Thorpe

Little Mix (Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pincock)

Kelly Tatler

Laura Sanderson

Lexi Stiles

Gemma Styles

Johanna, Charlotte, Felicite, Daisy, Phoebe Tomlinson

Carly Thorpe

Tony Thorpe

Tom Camber

Lucy Camber


He printed the list off and handed it to our bodyguard, Paul. He was going to be standing at the door and letting people in.

We'd decided to throw Ella a surprise party but we were going to tell her that she's going to the cinema. Zayn insisted that we invite Little Mix because he met Perrie at a club and they've been texting non-stop ever since. Niall wanted to invite Laura, a girl that he'd met the same night. We invited Gemma because Ella wanted to meet her and it was a nice surprise if Louis' mum and sisters all came.

We tried to invite all of Ella's old school friends but they were all busy; the only people we managed to get was Kelly and Lexi. Tom and Lucy didn't want Elisca to come as she's only a few days old. Louis thought about inviting some of our celebrity friends but that would draw all the attention away from Ella.

"Boys, you haven't got many guests here," Paul told us.

"Paul, we're taking her to a club first and then the closest people are coming back here," Louis explained and Paul nodded.

"Okay, what time?" Paul sighed, probably knowing it'd be late.

"About 10 but you don't have to stay the whole time," I smiled.

"Yes, I do, Harry. What if the fans find out?" He asked.

"Well, you're not going to do it alone so, after a couple of hours, you can go home," Liam pointed out.

"No, you don't understand. Are you wanting me to come to the club with you as well?" He questioned.

We all nodded our heads guiltily.

"I'll pick you up at 8:30, be ready," Paul left the room.

We walked out and I climbed into the drivers before Louis could beat me to it.

"Harry, you scare me when you drive," Liam whined.

"Well, you'll just have to get used it. Have I ever crashed?" I smirked and Liam shook his head in defeat.

At the speed I was going, we managed to get home in less thaan twenty minutes. Niall knocked on the door and Carly opened.

"Oh, hi, boys. Is it all set up?" She whispered.

"Yeah, you're going straight to the hall to set the bar up and stuff, aren't you?" Louis asked, smiling.

Carly nodded and let us in. I walked over to the couch and sat down next to Ella and she cuddled into my arm. I rested my chin on her head and kissed her hair lightly.

"Hiya, babe," She smiled.

"Hello, baby," I grinned as she intertwined her hand with mine.

Someone cleaared their voice in the background and we both turned to look at Louis. I pulled Ella into my lap and she stuck her tongue out at him.

"We're taking you to the cinema at 8 so you've got just under two hours," Zayn told us.

"Okay," Ella stood up from my lap and left to get ready.


Author's Message:

Sorry this update took so long. I got a new laptop for my birthday so I've been getting that set up. It took me quite a while to write this one 'cause it's a lot longer than usual!!

Laura Sanderson is the person that won the competition for Niall's girlfriend. She didn't give me a last name so I just randomly picked one.

Kelly Tatler is Ella's 'clubbing friend' from earlier on in the book.

You might think that Louis and Lexi should cause a bit of tension when they're in the same room but, where they hadn't seen each other at all for about 2 years, they've completely gotten over the other.

I hope you enjoy this chapter and I'll try to update soon.
