42. Surprise...

Paige's POV

 

Rewind about five seconds and you would've heard about twenty people scream surprise in my face, then of course I screamed bloody hell and almost dropped my towel... almost.

"Happy Birthday, baby!" Niall yelled happily, shoving through the crowd. He froze, checking me out in the tiny towel. 

"Niall..." I frowned, beyond embarrassed. He grinned and ran up to shield me, like the gentleman he was. 

"You look hot though, even Liam did a double take." Niall whispered. I glared at him and my frown only became more upset.

"Ok everybody, I'm gonna go put on some clothes, then we can try this again!" I laughed, making eye contact with a few amused friends. 

"Sorry, love!" Liam smirked. I gave him the finger... somewhat as a joke... then ran upstairs with Niall at my heels.

 

"Babe, I'm sorry, I had no idea that you would be... erm in a towel." Niall bit his lip nervously.

"Yeah, that usually what I'm wearing when I come out of the shower." I snapped, half sarcastic.

Quickly, I went to my room and threw on a casual party dress that was form fitting at the waist but pleated in a way that made the bottom flow out around my  upper thighs. It was a pretty white and I matched it with a gold pendant necklace and some gold hoop earrings. I topped off the outfit by slipping on wedges and loosely braiding my hair.

Niall was waiting for me outside my door, and he laughed when he saw the scowl on my face.

"Who planned this?" I asked. 

"Me." 

"Of course." I groaned.

"You don't like it?" Niall frowned.

"No, I don't like celebrating me becoming an old lady." I rolled my eyes, and grabbed his hand.

"You know, maybe I shoulda thrown you a surprise party in your bedroom tonight." He winked.

"Oh god, control yourself, Horny Horan."I giggled.

"Horny Horan... I like it." He grinned before leading me downstairs where I pretended to be shocked by everyone hiding in the living room.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR PAIGE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!" The room sang loud for me as Liam and Louis carried out a massive cake lit with candles. The song sounded good because most of the people there were famous for their voices. 

"Happy birthday, babe." Niall whispered as I let out a gust of wind, extinguishing the candles.

"What you wish for?" Liam asked me.

"For more time, my life is so perfect that I only want to live it longer with you guys." I smiled happily, leaning against Niall and looking at all my friends.

Niall grinned and kissed me on the lips, getting a bunch of whoops and hollers from the guests, but eventually I pulled away, embarrassed by all the attention. Niall seemed pleased with himself and rested his arms around my waist as I cut up and passed out the cake. 

 

"Liam." I groaned, finally seeing him alone.

He chuckled and gave me a big hug, whispering in my ear, "You're welcome." 

Then of course I managed to forgive him for going against what I asked and throwing me this surprise party. Liam and I chatted for awhile, that is until I was attacked by my best girl-friends.

"YOU'RE SO OLD!" Perrie squealed, grabbing my arms and jumping up and down. 

"Oh shut up." I laughed. Dani, El, and she all spoiled me with hugs, kisses, laughs, and of course gave me my first few birthday presents. Then, once Niall saw them already handing out gifts, he flipped out and whined  about wanting to be the first to give me a birthday present. 

"Shh. Ni, it's just a few seconds after." I laughed.

"Yeah, plus you technically did. You slept with her." Louis yelled across the room, making a lot of people look at me oddly in approval, Liam just rolled his eyes and pretended not to have heard that.

"Yes, Lou has a point." I said reluctantly, although it was one hundred percent true.

"Fine." Niall smirked. 

Everyone demanded that it was present time, so I was forced into a chair and handed box after bag after box after bag and so on. I couldn't help but smile, only Niall and Liam would ever do something this sweet for me.

"Babe." Niall whispered when I was saying goodbye to some people.

"Yeah?" I walked over to him.

"To prove I didn't cheat, even though you already forgave me, I wanted to show you something." He said, taking my hand and walking back into the front hall.

"Ok..." 

He smiled to himself and pointed to a woman gathering her things and looking like she was ready to leave. Come to think I hadn't realized that she was here because I was so busy with One Direction and all my friends.

"Who is she?" I asked, somewhat unwilling to ask.

"That is Pamela, she was the woman I was with when you saw me. She was helping us plan this." Niall grinned, gesturing to the main room. 

"Oh..." I smiled weakly. 

It would've been a good thing. It would've been great. If it was the woman I saw... But it wasn't, so for some reason, he lied to me. With a sigh I allowed Niall to wrap his arms around me and I pretended nothing was wrong, even though something clearly was.
