The rest of the week flew by. Until Saturday. Because it was my BIRTHDAY! My eighteenth birthday! Yay! I was a legal adult! I was free to vote! And I was having a PARTAAY later that night. But for now I was really just planning. Then a thought occurs to me. I really wanted to spend my birthday with one person in particular. Harry. Oh well. I mean I've been taking the break up good so far. I guess. Oh who am I kidding. I'm destroyed. But today I'm not gonna let that get to me. I'm gonna have fun. And celebrate! I call the girls over.
"Today's her birthday!" I say to the lads. "Yeah! But one thing! She cries every time she sees you!" Zayn said.
Zayn was right. She does cry every time she sees me. Which is exactly why I was gonna straighten things out. Right now. "Lads, c'mon! I have an idea. Niall bring your guitar and prepare to play Strong." I say.
We arrive at her house. I climb up the fire escape. I text her.
I get text from Harry saying :
Open your balcony door, love. <3
I go to open it, leaving the girls to read the text.
Harry and the boys come through the my glass, balcony door.
They begin to sing Strong.
"My hands, your hands, tied up like two ships"
The chorus comes and I now understand why they chose this song.
"I'm sorry if I say I need ya. But I don't care I'm not scared of lovee. Cause when I'm not with you I'm weaker. Is that so wrong? Is it so wrong? You make me strong."
When the song is over they shout "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"
I run up into Harry's arms. He spins me bridal style. I kiss him. I then say, "You're my only birthday wish." He smiles showing his cute left dimple. I turn around and the girls are making out with their boys. I hold Harry's hand and guide him, Liam and Zayn downstairs. The other two couples soon realize we're going downstairs. I look at my mom and say, "Mom, it wasn't them drinking. Ana sabotaged it. They would never do that. And I love him. Harold Edward Styles. The rest of the boys are like my brothers. While you were gone I went to see them. And I'm sorry mom I just- " she interrupted me. "I know, Sweetheart." She says.
I paused for a while. "Wait you know?"
She says. "Of course! I figured it out when you said you had an English report due. You're never last minute! I know they weren't drinking. We have cameras, honey. Not in your room. But I saw Ana sneaking in with bottles. I know you love him and he loves you. Which is why he verified my permission to date you. You think he'd enter my home without permission?"
I say shocked, "MOM!"
She says, "What? A girls gotta have fun!"
I say to him "You're not innocent either, Curls." I kiss him on the cheek.
He says, "I know, but I love you."
I say, "I love you too!"
