My birthday came up. I had totally forgotten that part of my life and when Niall came in with breakfast to me in bed, I couldn't do anything but smile. He sang to me, and then he put down the tray on my lap.
"I have surprises throughout the day."
I giggled delighted and I kissed him lightly. Then I started to eat and I watched him all the time.
"How did you know about my birthday?"
He was proud that he had proven something.
"I know everything."
"And we'll stay in bed all day?"
He shook his head.
"No, we won't just stay in bed all day. We'll do a lot of things as soon as the sun has gone down."
Niall took my hand and I was surprised when we went to a forest. We slipped into the trees and after a while we came to an old ruin of a castle. Niall was happy, and when we got inside the walls I gasped. Everywhere there were lights everywhere and it lit up the whole area. All the vampires were there and I noted that the party was in full swing. On the stage stood Zayn and played music. He was the evening's DJ. All raised their glasses and everyone sang to me. I was close to crying with happiness, because everything was just overwhelming.
It was like coming home. Perrie was right when she had said that vapyrerna was like one big family. There were many I hadn't met before, and everyone greeted at me anyway. It was as if I was a celebrity and all were my fans. I blushed at the thought.
"Are you surprised?"
Niall took me in his arms, and he smiled at me with his gorgeous lips. I nodded and I took my arms around his neck.
"You have planned it all?"
He nodded with satisfaction.
"What don't you do for the one you love?"
He kissed me and it was a wonderful kiss. I felt his lips against mine and it tingled all over. I forgot all my doubts and I could do nothing but just enjoying that I was his.
Niall and I ended the kiss and we noted that Liam was standing next to us. He smiled with his whole face, and he had big eyes.
"If you will excuse me, we have to move on. We have many things planned."
Niall released me and he nodded.
"Right... now we come to part two."
Niall grinned and he released me. He followed with Liam towards the stage and they went up on it. Niall took a microphone in his hand and all became silent.
"Harry and Louis?" he said into the microphone. The two guys came running quickly up on the scene. I smiled expectantly and I put myself as I saw what it was they were doing.
"You never love yourself half as much as I love you
You'll never treat yourself right darling but I want you to
If I let you know, I'm here for you
Maybe you'll love yourself like I love you oh"
(I know..... A little predictable, but I couldn't help but having a little music in my story. After all, they are One Direction and after all, they can really sing, even if they are vampires.)
I ended up in heaven. This was my best birthday in my life and I still wasn't with my biological family. I was with friends and they all cared about me, although I was anything like what they were.
Niall grabbed my hand and we left the party. He had a car that was waiting and he took me to a different part of town. We ended up high on a hill and we had a view out of the entire city. The lights lit up the area in front of us and he laid out a blanket on the ground. Then he took out a basket with food in and I realized that he had arranged a picnic.
I was measured. We lay on our backs and we looked up at the stars above us. Niall held my hand tightly and I could feel how I tingle all over.
He smiled and he looked at me.
"Don't thank me." he whispered. "It's I who should thank you, that you are here and that you are mine."
I smiled and I met his gaze. So much love!
"I love you."
Niall lit up with the whole face. He lay on his side and he pulled a hand over my cheek.
"And I love you more than you could ever dream about."
I laughed a little bit.
"Should we compete over who loves the other the most?"
He shook his head.
"No, that would be wrong. Let's just say that we love each other then?"
"It was a wonderful birthday."
Quickly Niall sat up. It was as if he realized he had missed something. He released my hand and quickly he disappeared back to the car. I remained at my back and I looked up at the stars again. I felt totally happy, totally satisfied and I almost wished that time would stand still. It was wonderful to be there with Niall and the sky was totally adorable over us. It was as if nothing could be as perfect as that moment as I lay there. Nothing could ever be as harmonious and yet exciting.
I woke up from the thoughts. I obeyed him, and I stood up in front of Niall. He smiled with his whole face, and he took my hand. He went down on one knee and he looked straight into my eyes.
"Lilly, this isn't one of the ordinary for a vampire, but I know you people are finding it important in your lives." He took out a box and I gasped.
"Are you going to propose to me?"
Niall blushed and he frowned teasingly on the forehead.
"If you'll excuse me, I have planned this for a week. Please let me do it my way?"
I nodded and I felt how my legs became weak. I just stared at him and I got a dry throat.
"Well!" he continued, and he resumed what he had planned. "I was going to say that we vampires don't do such things, but I will make an exception." He looked into my eyes and he seemed almost more nervous from what I was.
"Lilly, I love you and we already know that our love is unique, special, and it will always remain in my heart, even the day when you aren't with me anymore."
I realized he was talking about that one day I would die. I realized that he was content to just be with me, in my short life that I had left. It felt a little different to realize that he would outlive me, he would survive all that was humans.
"When I met you I didn't believe in love." he continued. "But I've learned that even I deserve to feel that feeling and I'm forever grateful that it was you I felt it for. You're everything that I could only dream of, and you're more than I deserve."
Niall opened the box and I saw a ring that was filled with diamonds. It shone almost up the world more than the stars did and I almost lost my breath.
"Lilly, will you marry me?"
I had lost the ability to talk and I could only nod. I felt the tears of happiness came and I could feel my whole body was shaking. Niall took the ring and he took it on my ring finger. He stood up and he kissed me. I threw myself into his arms and I kissed him with more passion towards ever. This was more than I could ever dream of.
