Chapter 20 (Gifts Of Love)
Yesterday was the best day of my life, spending it with Harry. Come on. No one would every deny that it was the worst date ever. I just woke up from the sound of birds tweeting outside my window. I'm in my room right now thinking about yesterday. Harry did so much to make it the Best date ever and clearly it did go well, well except for the car crash part but scratch that it was awesome. Maybe I should return him the favor, I got it I should give him a gift.
I got up from my bed and headed for the shower, I did my normal routine as usually. I got out of my room with my favourite towel on, I look fabulous and took out my favourite pink tank top with ruffles on the front and my white skirt along with some legging under it. I decided to put my hair down and add some curls onto it. I added some light makeup on and ran to Harry's room, I stopped halfway when i remembered that hes at work. I looked at the clock. 11:35 AM.
"Today is going to be a long day." I said to myself as I walked down the stairs to the kitchen. I opened the fridge and found nothing that I wanted to eat for breakfast. I walked to the living finding Buster, Harry told me that were going to call it Buster.
"Hey Buster how's it going." I said couching down petting his fur. He then started to bark happily. I smelled his fur, it smells even better from last time I saw him. I remember yesterday when I got home, Aunt Anne accepted him but he needed a bath first before we could do anything.
"Did Harry give you a bath, because you smell so good." I said smiling at him. He then gave me a lick on the cheek. I laughed. I noticed that Buster didn't have his breakfast yet and I think Aunt Anne went shopping yesterday. I ran to the kitchen followed by Buster and opened up the cabinet, I had found some dog food and spilling some on a bowl since we don't have a dog bowl yet. I watched Buster eat, I grabbed another bowl and poured some water in it.
"Buster I'm going out for a while, I hope you would be a good dog while I'm gone ok." I said with a smile. He then went up to me with a sad face. I crouched down and gave him a hug.
"It won't be that long ok." I placed Buster bak down onto the floor and walked to the front door area.
I grabbed my black channel flats and walked outside of the house. Today I'm going to buy something to eat for breakfast and than I'm going to go to the mall down Main for Harry's thank you gift. I waved goodbye to Buster and went outside locking the door to the flat. I took my car and drove to Tim Hortons and got a egg salad sandwich there, my moms favorite. It took me a a while to get to the mall because there was a car accident there, looking at the red and blue colors from the lights of a police care reminded me about the car crash yesterday, it was horrible not to mention scaring. I almost lost Harry, the boy who saved my life.
I got out of my car once I had parked the car. I got it I should give Harry a necklace, I know he's a boy but a necklace would be a reminder of me. Great Present Selly! I walked through the stores down the hall of the building until I found who I didn't really want to see. Justin.
He was right there texting away to some random person on his phone while sitting on a bench, probably he is waiting for someone that is shopping right now. I hid behind a plant that was beside a escalator.
I watched Justin very carefully until a girl that looked like my age walked out of a store called Urban Behavior, she came up to Justin and gave him a kiss. Not just some random kiss, a kiss on the lips. Justin has a girlfriend? FINALLY!! Im safe now. I watched them disappeared down the hall, I was startled by a person wondering why I was hiding behind a plant.
"What are you doing an why are you hiding behind a fake plant?" A girl asked, I didn't see their face so I didn't know who it was.
"Really I thought it was real I-" I said while holding a piece of leaf. I turned around finding Demi.
"Demi!" I exclaimed. I was really happy to see her, it was been so long and I was so lonely since Harry wasn't here. I have her a hug.
"What you doing here?" I asked with a smile on my face. I looked at her, she was wearing a blue dress with a blue blazer on that looked really cute on her and she had a black hat on her.
"I wanted to go shopping" she replied.
"Really? I was hoping if you could help me with something since your here but first I gotta tell you something." I said, when I got to the part when I needed to tell her something, I began to whisper. I took my free hand and started I cover my mouth so my voice doesn't echo through the room. She gave me a confused look until it was replaced with a frighten look.
"Justin's here" I whispered.
When I found Selena hiding behind a plant which I think is fake, I knew that something was wrong. Right now Selena just told me that Justin was here. The man that raped my best friend at school. Talk about bulling also.
"Selena re you sure that was him?" I asked with a hint I fear in my voice, I was beyond scared what this boy would do next since Harry told me that Justin had beaten up Selena already when he broke into his house. She gave me a small smile.
"I'm positive it's him plus he has a girlfriend so I think we're safe now." Justin Bieber has a girlfriend, that girl must be dumb.
"Girlfriend?" I said with a confused look.
"Yeah I saw this girl, she came up to Justin and kissed him then they ran off to the sunset. The end" she said. I giggled because of her response. They ran of to the sunset. The end. Classic Selena!. It was kinda getting cramped up here since Selena and I are talking beside a fake plant.
"Before we can do anything, let's move away from this plant. You never know when there is a microphone or web cam recording us." I said as I grabbed her hand and pulled her away from the plant. She laughed.
"Hey can you help me buy a thank you gift for Harry?" she asked. I gave her a confused look until I realized that they had a date yesterday.
"Thank you gift?" I said in confusion, she gave me a glare that pulled my memories together.
"Oh thank you gift, Sure." I said. she laughed
"Come one" she said as she grabbed my hand. We started to pass by some really good shops for men but Selena decided to skip them. I don't really know what kind of gift she wanted to give Harry but I was really sure she wanted it to be special.
"Oo That store!" I said pointing to a store for men. She shook her head no causing me to continue walking.
"Oo what about that store Selena." I said excitedly. She shook her head no once more.
"Oh come on Selena. What store do you want to go to?" I whined until she stopped and looked at a unpaticular store. A store completely different from the other stores that I had pointed out. A jewelry store.
"This store. Come on" She said I gave her a confused look when she grabbed my hand and pulled me into the store. We looked through the rings, earrings and necklace. I already knew that Selena wanted to buy Harry and necklace when she started to point at each necklace that had a infinity sign on it.
"Selena you do realize that Harry is a boy." I sighed out. She gave me a weak smile.
"What boys can't wear necklace too plus I want to give Harry something that would remind him that I'am always there for him. And something for him to wear everyday." She said as turned around and pointed at a necklace that had a infinity sign on it. The lady took the necklace out, it was beautiful yet perfect.
"Can you please engrave Selena Marie Gomez on it please" she ordered to the lady. The lady happily did what Selena said and returned back with a perfect necklace that had the name Selena Marie Gomez on it.
"Selena its perfect." I whispered to her. I then watched the lady place it gently in a small box that had a white ribbon on it. She turned around and gave me a wide smile.
"I know it is Demi, Thank you." she said as she took the small plastic bag from the lady and walked outside of the store. Selena had handed me the receipt, I looked at it with my eyes wide open. $999!!!!
"$999!!!" I shouted quietly. Selena looked at me with a innocent look.
"What? They had a discount on it." she said carefully, I gave her a never mind look. She giggled. We continued walking until I heard something utterly grumble from my stomach.
"Did you hear that?" she questioned. it was my turn to give her a innocent look. I placed both my hands on my petite stomach as I looked at her, she gave me a confused look and then a giggle.
"Sorry I haven't had breakfast yet. My bad." I said. She shook her hand with a smile on her face.
"Come on, I'll treat you." she said. I then went from embarrassed into excited. I ran to the fast food area, it was crowded. Happy hour? We sat ourselves in a empty table. Once we got all serious I didn't bother to ask.
"Sooo how was your date with Harry?" I asked excitedly. her eyes then started twitch, oh no is that a bad sign. It better not be.
"Well....." she started off.
I was all done with work and I decided to go buy Selena something, I don't know what for but all I knew was that she was special. I placed a tray of donuts in the oven and turned the knob to 350 Fahrenheit.
"I see your done, well done Harry." I heard a voice say, I turned around and found Ed talking to me. He had his arms folded letting his white chef gown wrinkle.
"Must say why we always start a conversation beside a oven?" I asked with a smirk on my face. He chuckled at my statement, must be funny.
"Well then because you always end your shift beside a oven. Reason explained." he said. I went to a sink so I could wash my hands when I was followed by Ed.
"What do you need?" I said pumping some soap into my hands. He took a towel that was beside me and wiped his hands on it.
"Well since I don't really know you, I want to get to know you." He said. He wants to get to know me. Maybe he can help me with something then.
"Sure but before we could do that, can you help me with something actually." I said as I rinsed the suds of my hands. He took a clean towel out of a rack and handed it to me so I could dry my hands. I mouthed thanks. He nodded his head.
"Ok so what do you need?" he questioned. I placed the clean towel back on the rack and removed my apron. I watched him take his white chef hat off.
"I need your help getting a gift for someone." I said. He raised his eye brows along with a smile. I chuckled at his face for it looked funny.
"Ah for your girlfriend?" He asked. Should I asked Selena to be my girlfriend? Yeah I think I should. Harry you can do this.
"To be girlfriend." he laughed and then started to wiggle his eyebrows. I smiled in embarrassment.
"Don't worry I was like you once." he said as he placed his elbow on a table. I sighed out.
"She's my best friend actually." I said as if it was a dream come true. I leaned on the doorway. In surprise he stood up from his position and snapped his fingers. I gave him a shocked look but smoothly calmed down.
"I know what kind of present you need." He said. I smiled brightly. He grabbed his coat and handed me mine and walked out of the room.
"Come on, let's go to the jewelry store across the street." he smiled. I nodded my head as we headed to the street. I watched Ed pull out his phone as we crossed the street. I became confused when he then started to look at a note that says 'Music piece'. there were a bunch if words, I think they are lyrics.
"Ed you write music?" I asked. He shyly nodded as we entered the famous store. He then quickly turned his phone off and shoved it into his pockets. I chuckled.
"I think its awesome." I said, he smiled really bright at my statement. A lady who I think is in his mid-forty's came up to us.
"May I help you?" she said politely, I smiled and I bet Ed did also. She was wearing a business skirt and a blazer to match her white polo shirt, she then ended off her style with a pair of black heels and a pair of panty hose.
"Yes he would l like to buy a charm bracelet." Ed said. I nodded at his statement. A charm bracelet great idea. The lady looked at me with a smile, I think she knows who it is for.
"Sure right this way." she said, she then started to walk through different categories of bracelets. I followed her all the way until we stopped at were we were looking for. She then pulled out a gold charm bracelet that kinda looks like for old men to me. It was too plain and silly.
"What about this one, a gold charm bracelet with a basketball pendent and a soccer pendent. This bracelet fits perfectly for you." she said pulling the bracelet out to me so I could look or grab it. I waved my hand at it indicating no.
"Sorry its not for me, I'm buying it for someone as a gift." I said, Ed then chuckled a bit but I think it wasn't that noticeable. She then looked at me strangely, she started to look at me in the eyes then she started to scan my body. I felt uncomfortable. I looked at Ed, I can see he was trying to hide is laughter.
"Oh I see, for your girlfriend ok." she said placing the gold bracelet back to were it was. Ed well he couldn't hold it so he laughed uncontrollably that the people in the building were starring at us. I gave Ed a playful glare that surprisingly worked, he stopped laughing instantly. The lady then took out a bracelet that was beyond perfect, it really represented Selena. It had a silver chain holding different kinds of charms like a microphone charm that represented Selena's singing, a london flag charm that represented her moms hometown, and a H charm that represented my name. Harry. The lady smiled at me widely, I think she knows that I love it.
"This charm bracelet is perfect for your girlfriend since I can already tell she sings." she said, I nodded at her telling her i want it. Wow how does she know that Selena sings, she must be a mind reader or something. She then went from behind a counter writing something on a piece of paper. I then took my money out.
"It is on a discount so final offer if you wish to buy it." she said. I nodded at her, she then started pressing numbers on a calculator until she gave me the price.
"That would be $899 please." she said. I smiled at her and took my money out. I started counting money until I noticed Ed starring at me.
"What?" I said as I took the money and gave it to her. She mouthed thank you to me. I placed my extra money back into my pocket and took the mini plastic bag from her.
"Thats alot of money you got there." he said. I smiled at him as I remembered the time when Selena and Demi won $10,000.
I started to get nervous and I knew Selena was beyond nervous and scared. I rubbed her petite back giving her all my luck and hope to her. When the man took the card from Tony and started to open it. I prayed to God that it would be Selena and Demi. As he read the card, all my hopes and nervousness were replaced with happiness and excitement
"Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato!!!" he yelled to the microphone. I started to laugh but as for Demi, she burst into tears.
"Selena you and Demi won $10,000!!! Congratulations" Harry yelled. I gave him a hug and Demi joined along. We clearly did a group hug. A tear fell running down my cheek while Demi and I ran to the stage accepting our $10,000 cheque. Demi and I shook the man's hand and grabbed the cheque all excitedly.
"Yeah my best friends won $10,000 during a contest and they were really nice to give me $2,000." I said happily. I sighed out letting the cold air release out of my breath, I didn't know if that made any sense but oh well. Ed smiled shockly at me causing me to blink multiply times.
"Wow your 'to be' girlfriend sounds nice." he said air quoting To Be. I laughed until I received a text from someone. I took my phone out and opened it. I had received a text from Selena. I read it as I began to smile.
Selena: Hey Haz, where are you? Its already 2:03. I thought you were coming back at 1:00. I hope nothing bad happened ok. Text me back as soon as possible, let me know if anything is alright. Ok? Love you Selly oxoxo
Ed began to laugh. Dang I think he read my text.
"Love you, Selly oxoxo" he mimicked laughed. I embaressly shrugged my shoulders.
"Well I got to go now Ed I'll text or see you later." I said walking in a different way. I waved at him.
"Ok hope your Selly accepts you bye Harry." he shouted. I chuckled at the word 'your Selly'. My Selly. Selena Marie Gomez in mine. I walked back to the side of the bakery and into my car. As I entered my car, I didn't bother to check my gift for Selena. I was shocked and surprised that the kind lady gave me a free box to put the bracelet in. I took the pearl fuzzy little box and placed the charm bracelet neatly on it. As I closed the box, I sighed out.
"Selena I hope you realize 'A Real Girl Isn't Perfect And A Perfect Girl Isn't Real' " I whispered to myself.
I don't think I can really define Love, all I could do is show it ❤
