21. It all Started With E! News

I woke up the next morning on a bed. I must have fallen asleep last night by mistake. I look over to the clock, it reads 6:39. When I get out of bed, I almost step on Liam. I'm so tired, I almost forgot I was in London. I go down on my hands and knees and I gently shake him awake. He rolls over and groans. Through my eyelashes I see his eyes start to open, "Good… morning. We f-fell asleep."
Liam grunts, then builds up the strength to stand up. I go over to my suitcase and I take out a blue tie dye knit sweater and indigo skinny jeans. I go into the bathroom and I put them on. My feet just have bow socks on them right now. I put my hair into a messy bun and I go make up less. When I get out of the bathroom, Liam goes in to take a shower. I put on the pair of combat boots Simon got me for my birthday. It's really hard to pull the laces right enough where there's a good, snug fit. I can hear the sound of the shower starting. I turn on my phone and I have loads of new texts. There were mostly only two kinds of texts, are you dating Niall or happy birthday. I completely forgot it was my birthday. One text stood out to me though:

To: Kady Brown
From: Summer Corbett

Hi Kads!!!
Happy birthday, we need to have lunch for your birthday today! You are super sweet to me and this is the only way to thank you for how nice you have been to me!!
-Summer <3

This girl is officially a creep. First of all, how does she know where I am and second, how can I be "super sweet" if I've never met her. And third, only my closest friends are EVER allowed to call me Kads. Instead of questioning her, I send back a lame excuse:

To: Summer Corbett
From: Kady Brown

Um thx 4 the invite but im spending the day w/Li 4 my bday and i will 4 the rest of the week
-Kady

To: Kady Brown
From: Summer Corbett

I can come with you guys! I know where to eat in this area, London's my second home!
-Summer

That sounds really strange coming from a girl who was born and raised in Russia. I hate Summer, even though I've never met her in person, I don't know how to tell her no, it's my day with Liam. But if I say that, it'll sound like I just came off of The Bachelor. I try the best I can to tell her no:

To: Summer Corbett
From: Kady Brown

I want 2 hang out w/ u so badly but Li already made dinner reservations 4 2. We should get 2gether sometime soon though
-Kady

She responds with a text a few seconds later saying like something like it isn't that hard to get a dinner reservation moved to three. I officially give up. Summer is the hardest person to talk to, ever. And this includes the recorded message at the bank because, well humans don't know how to talk. I don't get why she even wants to hang out with me. Liam comes out of the shower with a pair if Macy's jeans on, "Have you seen my green plaid shirt by any chance?"
"Did…you check you s-suitcase?" I ask. 
"Well, uh no," he answers. I nod my head. He opens his suitcase and just like magic, it's folded neatly on top. He puts the shirt on over his bare chest. We go downstairs for breakfast that the hotel serves for free. There's a man making ordered omelets. He is maybe thirty and by looking at his pile of tips, he must be really nice. Liam goes over to get an omelet while I get French toast with powdered sugar and fresh fruit. We sit down at an empty table set for two.
"No pancakes?" Liam asks sarcastically. I shake my head with a proud smile on my face. Liam reaches over and fixes the beanie that's on my head, "You have to master the art of putting on beanies."
"It's …not that-" I am cut off as I put my full focus on the TV that's playing E! News. A normal female reporter, the kind with a fake tan, poofed up hair, and ten pounds of makeup on was talking, "Niall Horan was spotted with a lucky lady the last few days. The lucky girl is rumored to he field hockey player, Kady Brown. If it is indeed Kady, today is her birthday. Will she announce dating the boy band member?"
I sigh, "You…know what? I-I'm going to …tell the world…about us on Twitter l-later."
"What?!" he scream whispers. 
"I know…we're going t-to get a lot…of hate, b-but I don't want y-you to think I'm running off…with another guy," I say and I look at Liam's face. He didn't really seem like he was on board with the whole "telling the world thing." This was how his relationship with Dani ended, by telling the world they were together, then the hate became too much for her. 
"If that's what you want to do," he eventually says. I know he really doesn't want me to tell the world, but I don't want him or other people thinking I'm with Niall because I'm not. We finish up our breakfasts and Liam takes my hand, "Well, this is another way of telling the world."
I put on my jacket, gloves, and I put my sunglasses on the ridge of my upturned nose. We walk out into London air. It isn't raining for once and it's abnormally warm for this time of year, about forty five degrees Fahrenheit. 
"I was think to start off, we should take a little stroll around the city, oh and by the way, happy birthday," Liam says with a little embarrassment coming to his face. 
"Thanks," I look up at him and we hold each other's gaze for a few seconds. On lookers must think we're a bunch of smiling freaks. I take out my phone and I snap a selfie of us kissing. Liam and I sit down on a nearby bench and I upload it to Twitter with the caption, I love you to the moon and back and I just want to tell the world that your mine. My finger hovers over the send button. My hand must be shaking because Liam pressed send for me. He logged into Twitter and retweeted it saying, Happy birthday Kady. You are my best friend, my shoulder to lean on, the one person I know I can count on, the love of my life, your my one and only, your my everything, I love you so much. He pressed send, then hugged me again. We did it, there's no hiding anything now, if only we knew what kind of mess we were getting ourselves into.
