24. Chapter 24

I spent the next month in bed at Mom’s house.  Harry had been transferred to a hospital in London, but I couldn’t deal with him.  Not since he didn’t even remember me.  The only times I came out were to take care of Cadence, Daphne, and Delilah.


On March 1st, which was my birthday, I heard a knock at the door.  “Go away!” I shouted.


“It’s Harry!” I heard a British voice say outside my door.


“I don’t wanna see you anymore!  Go away!”


Harry opened the door, and I saw that he was holding a chocolate cupcake with a lit candle in it.  “Happy birthday, love,” he said, giving me the cupcake.


“You don’t remember my birthday!  The guys probably reminded you!”


“No, I remembered.  Just make a wish and blow the candle out!”


I closed my eyes, made a wish, and blew out the candle.


“What did you wish for?”


“I wished I could have the old Harry back—the one who loved me!”


“But I DO love you!”


“When did we meet?”


“In high school, when you moved in as an exchange student.”


“Why did we break up the first time?”


“Your parents found out we’d had sex.”


“What are our daughters’ names, middle names included, in birth order?”


“Cadence Melody, Daphne Michelle, and Delilah May Styles.  Why are you asking me these things?!  Can’t you already see that I love you?!  I remembered when we first met and when we first broke up!”


“When did we get back together?”


Harry shut me up by taking the cupcake and shoving it into my mouth. 


“Wait till you see your present!  It’s back in London, so after you finish your cupcake, get dressed and pack your bags.”


My eyes lit up.  “You DID remember!  What is it?”


“I won’t tell you until we get home.”




A few hours later, Harry and I arrived in London with the kids.  Niall picked us up to take us back to the mansion.  When we got there, I was greeted by a Manchester terrier with a pink bow around its neck.  Cadence hid behind my leg in fear.


I gasped.  “Harry!  You got me a puppy?!”


“I sure did!” Harry said.  “Her name is Layla.  The lads even pitched in and got all her supplies.”


“Well, she’s a cutie!”  I picked Layla up.  “Wanna pet her, Cadence?”


“NO!” Cadence shouted, running upstairs to her room.


“Why is she afraid of dogs?” Harry asked.  “Is it just a little kid thing, or what?”


“She was attacked by a Doberman when she was a year old.  James was pushing Cadence on the swings in the backyard when the neighbor’s Doberman jumped over the fence and attacked her.  The neighbor had been profusely apologetic and offered to take her to the ER for us.  She still has the scar to prove it.”


“Oh, I thought the mark on her hip was just a birthmark?”




“Want me to take Layla back to the shelter?”


“Nah, Cadence will get used to her once she knows she won’t bite.”


“So, is the wedding still on?”


“Yes, it’s still on.”


“Brilliant!”  Harry and I shared a long kiss.
