Chapter 7: The Best Birthday Ever.
The next morning I was woken by a loud bang in the garage, I figured it was Dad getting ready for the party so i got into the shower and changed into skinny jeaans, a holister tee shirrt, my TOMS and pulled over Harry's "Jack Willis" sweatshirt over my head. I pulled my long brown hair into a side braid. I walked down the steps into my basement and out the door into the garage. It was beautiful so far, There were whitesheets drapped over the walls and it was filled with the ballons The boys and I bought yeester day. I was surprised to see the boys decorating on ladders.
'What are you guys doing here' I asked them
'Were decorating what the hell does it look like were doing' Louis joked
'You didnt have too. I couldve done it myself' I told them feeling guilty
'No love its okay!' Liam insisted
'Thanks' I told them
'Happy Birthday!' Niall screamed
'Thanks' I smiled
'Bappy Hirthday' Zayn laughed
'Thanks Zayn' I laughed back
'Wheres Harry' I asked noticing he wasnt there.
'Picking up another present for you' Louis told me.
'Oh he didnt have to. Hes a good enough present himself' I sat down on a chair decorated with a big bow with a "C" in the middle.
'He knows. Well he will be happy you have his sweatshirt on' Liam laughed
'Yeah! Lets take a pic and send it to him' Zayn insisted
'Smile' Louis said pulling out his phone. I smiled and formed my hands into a heart and Lou snapped the picture.
'Thanks think he will like it' I wondered
'He already replied!' Informed Louis
'What he say? What he say' Yelled Niall as they plopped down on chairs beside me
'He said: Look at that beautiful girl so happy that she actually likes me, I cant ever find a girl like her shes once in a life time Lou, I love er' Louis said
'Awwhhhh' Liam said laughing
'I love him too' I smiled.
'So excited for your birthday?' Niall asked. It seemed everytime I said I loved Harry or I liked him he changed the subject. Wierd I thought to myself and you coould see the other boys were thinking the same things.
'Yeah I am. You guys prepared for the concert?' I asked them
'Yep, we stayed up all night practicing' Zayn told me
'Did you get a hold of my guy friends' I asked i hope they could come, I havent heard from the boys who were knocked out, and i really want to see how they are doing.
'Yeah. Harry called all of them. And all of your other mates. Dont worry its gonna be great' Louis assured me
'How how great. Im so excited! The room looks great, guys it really does' I old them touching the sheets on the wall.
'Thanks love, were going to pick up the cake and meet with Harry, Niall stay here, and help Case with the final touches' Zayn said walking with Liam and Louis out of the garage.
'See ya later' I said and they got into the cAr and took off down our road
'So did you meet my dad' I asked Niall.
'Yeah. He's so cool' Niall told me
'Did he like you?' I asked my dad didnt like many people.
'Yeah, only cause i was irish though' He said his smile faded.
'Im sure theres other reasons why he liked you. Theres lots of thing to like about you' I told him sittting down.
'Like what. Ill never be as important as the other boys in the band' He looked away from me
'Niall, You are important Have you ever heard your voice it is amazing. Your a funny guy, and are very sweet.' I smiled, he's grown on me like a best friend
'You think that' Niall forced out a smile
'Yeah I do.' I smiled
'You know I like you' He mumbled
'But Im with Harry' I said patting his backk
'I know, Just know Ill always be here for you' He gave me a hug
'I know' I hugged him back. We finished up decorating, it was filled with laughter by the end we were almostt crying and acted like I never knew he fanccied me. The boys finally came back with the cake and Harry.
'Harry!' I yelled joyfully.
'Hey! Happy Birthday beautiful' He ran and embraced me and twirled me around where i caught Nialls eyes filled with pain, I felt bad I really did.
'Thanks' I smiled
'Heres your cake' Niall said interupting the moment again. The cake was beautiful 5 tiers. The bottom tier had word wrapped around it: Smile your beautiful. The next tier said Happy birthday in pink lettering over zebra print. The next was word that said: One Direction loves you! The next was my name. Then it was You've got that one ting. and the very top was pink with candels alll over it.
'Aww its amazing. People are gonna be here soon, Set up the stage over there Im going to get changed' I saidd pointing to the wall
'Kay love' Zayn said. I went up stairs and looked at my dress, It was aqua qith different colored gems on the top the bottom was poofy with aqua and pink tulle and it came a bit bellow the top of my thigh, I took my hair out of my braid it was perfectly waved.
