When You Let Your Heart Win

Chapter 38

Louis' POV

It's the 12th of November and that means it's Teddy's birthday! I got up earlier than suspected today, and I'm glad, so I made her her favourite breakfast and I'm going to bring it to her in bed. I just hope she won't be a hassle and she'll actually wake up.
"Babe?" I whispered walking in with her breakfast on a breakfast tray.
Nothing. She's not even moving. This girl could sleep through an earthquake if London ever had earthquakes. But hey, at least she's cute whenever she sleeps. She'll kill me, but I gotta post this online. I'll get 'why didn't you say happy birthday to your girlfriend?' all day if I don't.

"@Louis_Tomlinson: happy birthday to this beautiful thing that won't wake up. I love you, @TeddyNichole pic.twitter.com/ahe6GHK82"

"Teddy Bear?" I whispered sitting her breakfast on her nightstand and ever so slightly straddled her from behind. "Baby, wake up."
"Stop calling me Teddy Bear." She mumbled grabbing a pillow and stuffed her head underneath it.
"Teddy Nichole Parker, wake your fine arse up." I laughed kissing her shoulder.
"Go away." She mumbled flipping onto her side.
"Careful where you aim." I laughed leaning my bottom half up some.
"But I made you breakfast." I smiled.
"That's nice. Tell me how it is." She waved her hand.
"Breakfast in bed for the birthday girl." I added.
"Ew. It's my birthday." She snapped her head up, then laid back down. "Wake me up whenever today's over."
"But I made you breakfast." I whined jumping slightly. "And I got you your present."
"What present?" She asked flipping over onto her back.
"Oh you have eyes." I smiled placing my hands on the side of her head and looked down at her.
"Yeah." She nodded. "Where's my present?"
"Eat your breakfast." I smiled sitting up and grabbing the tray of food and placed it over her lap.
"Chocolate chip pancakes." She smiled.
"You're favourite, I know." I laughed jumping onto my side of the bed. "You can thank me later."
"If you didn't cook these right, I won't thank you." She mumbled shoving some pancake in her mouth then moaned.
"You're welcome." I smiled.
"Please stop telling people you're a horrible cook."
"All I ever cook is breakfast." I snorted getting up.
"Where are you going?" She whined.
"To call Perrie."
"She claimed you for the day." I smiled.
"But I want to hang out with you."
"There's always later." I shrugged walking out.
"You didn't say happy birthday!"
"You didn't give me my present!"
"You didn't even kiss me!"

Teddy's POV

"Why are you in a funk? It's your birthday, babe. Be happy!"
"Perrie, he didn't say happy birthday to me..."
"Other than twitter." She cut me off.
"Yeah, other than twitter and a horrible photo of me sleeping." I rolled my eyes. "Then he blew me off and threw me off onto you."
"I'll pretend that didn't hurt." She pouted.
"I didn't mean it like that." I sighed. "Wanna go get our nails done?"
"That's where I'm taking you." She giggled.
"Because a girl needs to be pampered!" She cheered then frowned whenever I wasn't in the cheery mood. "I'm sure he's planned something for later. Like why else would he of begged me to hang out with you?"
"The roles have changed; ouch."
"Teddy, I'm pampering you. Getting our nails and toes done, then we're going shopping. My treat." She smiled placing her hands on my shoulders. "Then if the idiot of a boyfriend of yours doesn't have anything planned for tonight, I'm taking you out dancing and we'll have our own birthday party."
"I knew there was a reason I made you my best friend." I smiled.
"I'm your only friend outside of One Direction." She teased.
"Yeah." I frowned.
"Hey, I'm a kick arse best friend with a kick arse best friend and I'm glad you don't have any other girlfriend's because I get you all to myself."
"Thanks." I laughed.
"Yay! A smile." She jumped and clapped. "Now let's get in here and get our nails pretty then let's go find you a sexy dress."
"Lou, I'm back!"
"Is he even here?" Perrie asked walking in behind me.
"'Had to go to the studio. Be back by 4. Xxx Louis.'" I sighed holding up his note he left in the kitchen.
"What time is it?"
"7:22." I whispered.
"Alright!" She jumped, which made me jump. "Let's get you in that sexy dress and let's get you to the club."
"I don't feel like going out."
"Teddy Nichole, get in the shower before I dump a bucket of water on you then make you even sexier." She ordered. Finger pointed towards the bathroom, scowl and all.
She means business.

Louis' POV

From Perrie
You have a lot if explaining to do in 2.5 seconds

"What?" Harry panted.
"Teddy's here!" I rushed.
"I thought you said 8?"
"Mate, it is 8!" I yelled. "Shit, shut up."
"I'm not ready."
"Well get ready." I whispered yelled.
"Teddy, tonight's going to be fun." I heard Perrie and tried to sneak a peak.
"My boyfriend isn't around for my birthday, Perrie. Tonight's not going to be fun." She's pouting.
"How the hell can she think I'd blow her off for her birthday?" I whispered to myself.
"Because you planned a surprise party for her, numb nuts." Harry whispered crouch walking up beside me.
"Everything set?"
"Perrie, nobody's here."
"On three." I whispered. "One..."
"That's weird."
"Today officially..."
"Happy birthday!" We all jumped up and the look on her face was the best thing ever.
"Happy birthday, babe." I smiled walking over to her.
"You're an..."
"Amazing boyfriend who threw you this amazing birthday party?" I smiled pulling her into me.
"Yes." She slumped.
"Should I yell at you now or later for thinking I'd blow you off on your birthday?" I asked.
"Later." She nodded.
"But I'll be the one yelling." She smiled.
"Teasing the second you walk through the door, Ted?" Zayn smiled walking up to us.
"Of course." She laughed then hugged him.
"Happy birthday, babe."
"Thank you."
"I can't wait til you get your present." He winked then walked away quickly.
"You still haven't given me my present!" She whined slapping me playfully.
"You'll get it." I smiled and pulled her closer. "Happy birthday, Bear."
"You said that already." She giggled.
"I know." I laughed then looked her over. "You also look bloody fantastic!"
"It's new." She pulled back and flaunted herself for me. "Perrie bought it."
"Actually I did." I smirked.
"That little bugger." She gasped.
"Forgive her." I laughed pulling her towards the dance floor. "But as of now, I need to go."
"Go? Go where?" She frowned.
"Stand right here." I bit back a laugh, kissed her quickly then ran. Not even daring to look back at her. Let's face it, she's probably pouting and/or scowling and planning my murder.
Teddy Parker is dramatic and I love every single bit of it.

Teddy's POV

"Perrie! You knew about this!" I yelled at her.
"Of course I knew about this!" She laughed. "But it was a good excuse to get you for a day."
"Do you know what they're doing?" I asked watching people run about on stage.
"Will you tell me?"
"Are you my best friend?"
"Will you tell me now?"
"Damnit, Perrie!" I stomped like a four year old. "I hate surprises."
"You like this surprise though." She smiled.
"Attention fellow erm, party goers?" Harry tapped the microphone and silenced the the attendees.
"Boo get off the stage!" I yelled up at him.
"No I actually need to be up here." He winked my way. "Anyways, we're all here for Miss Parker's 21st birthday, and as you all know I'm her best friend, she even likes me more than Perrie..."
"Hey! That's not true!" Perrie yelled, causing the room to laugh.
"Whatever, we'll fight later." He laughed. "Anyways, Louis is madly in love with that nut and he wrote her a song and it's bloody brilliant and it happens to be on the album and he wanted to perform this for her tonight, so..."
"Has he always been this awkward?" I whispered towards Perrie.
"I don't know." She shrugged. "I thought he was good with this stuff."
"Fizzy!" I smiled turning around to find all the Tomlinson girls walking up, or running up to me. "Ahh, you're all here!"
"Of course we're here." Lottie giggled.
"Happy birthday, Teddy." Daisy smiled looking up at me as she hugged my waist.
"Thank you, babe." I smiled leaning down and kissed her head. "You grew. Again."
"That's supposed to happen, duh." She sassed then ran off to wherever.
"Happy birthday, poppet." Jay smiled wobbling over to me and engulfed me in a hug.
"Thanks, preggers." I smiled laying a hand on her belly. "I'm saying this in a nice way, you're huge!"
"That tends to happen." She laughed rubbing her belly. "Is it sad that I'm ready for them to get here?"
"I don't know, I've never been pregnant and uncomfortable 24/7." I teased.
"It is uncomfortable, but it's worth it." She smiled.
"Can Teddy Nichole Parker look up at the stage so we can get this show on the road." Louis lamely announced, causing me to return my attention back to him.
"Sorry, babe." I apologised. "Do you thing and shake that booty."
"That's not my thing." He frowned.
"You're not stripping?" I pouted.
"My mother is here." He gasped.
"I'm joking." I laughed. "Do your thing."
"Right." He cleared his throat. "Like Harold said, I wrote this for Teddy and it's on the album that is out on 25th of November." He pointed at the crowd. "Anyways, I hope you all like it."
"He's just as awkward." I giggled to Perrie.
"Poppet, I'm going to go sit down." Jay said leaning towards us as the music started to play.
"That's fine. Go rest, mummy." I smiled kissing her cheek and I turned my attention back to the boys on stage.
"My hands
Your hands
Tied up
Like two ships

Waves try to break it
I'd do anything to save it
Why is it so hard to say it?

"My heart
Your heart
Sit tight like book ends

Between us
Written with no end
So many words we're not saying
Don't wanna wait 'til it's gone
You make me strong


"I'm sorry if I say 'I need ya'
But I don't care
I'm not scared of love
'Cause when I'm not with you, I'm weaker
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong?
That you make me strong?

"Think of
How much
Love that's been wasted

People always trying to escape it
Move on to stop their heart breaking
But there's nothing I'm running from
You make me strong

"Teddy, don't cry!" Perrie laughed fanning my face.
"Shh!" I smiled.

"I'm sorry if I say 'I need ya'
But I don't care
I'm not scared of love
'Cause when I'm not with you, I'm weaker
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong?

"So, baby, hold on to my heart, oh, oh
Need you to keep it from falling apart
I'll always hold on
'Cause you make me strong

"I'm sorry if I say 'I need ya'
But I don't care
I'm not scared of love
'Cause when I'm not with you, I'm weaker
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong?

"I'm sorry if I say 'I need ya'
But I don't care
I'm not scared of love
'Cause when I'm not with you, I'm weaker
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong?
That you make me strong?

I'm sorry if I say 'I need ya'
But I don't care
I'm not scared of love
'Cause when I'm not with you, I'm weaker
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong?
That you make me strong?

"Louis' trying to get some Teddy Bear." Perrie sing-songed.
"It's working." I smiled clapping for them. "But then again, he doesn't have to try."
"Thank you for today." I whispered up to Lou as we swayed to whatever song was playing.
"You're worth all the hassle." He whispered back. "But you're welcome."
"Thank you for my song." I smiled wrapping both my arms around his neck and pulled him down some. "Thank you for being amazing."
"You're welcome." He whispered again then kissed me softly. "Happy birthday, Bear."
"Thank you, boo." I giggled laying my forehead onto his collar bone. "This is the first time you're dancing with me, without me having to beg you."
"Or threaten me." He added with a loud laugh.
"That too." I nodded. "What's so different now? You haven't had a sip of alcohol."
"I don't need alcohol to dance with my girl on her birthday, let alone any day." He laughed.
"Alcohol just helps with the embarrassment." I giggled.
"Yes!" He nodded. "Very, very much."
"I love you." I sighed.
"I love you." He smiled. "So, so much, a birthday party doesn't explain how much."
"What will then?" I asked.
"Better than the day you become my wife and the mother of my children all in one day."

I'll literally always be here lol this is my number 1 favourite story!!! I even recommended it to many of my friends and a few of them don't even like 1D but they absolutely love the story :) And call me a very hopeful optimist but there is a big part of me that believes we will have either one more tour or another album in a few years' time. But until then, this story holds me together

Much Love ~Liz <3

I'm trying to. I promise. I just changed everything around and got a new and better PC, so I'm hoping. I'm still in love with this story and Louis (even if he's back with Eleanor). I've been rereading this lately and it's such a good story line and I want to finish it for people that are still around, but I feel like I lost a lot and with them not even being a band anymore, but I promise I'm trying. hopefully around next week I'll sit my ass down and get to work.
But thank you for still being here. you're the fricken best.

luckylo luckylo

Are you still going to finish WYLYHW? Sorry if I'm being annoying this story has just been a huge part of my life for so long and I feel like I'm having withdrawals lmao Or wasn't there gonna be a sequel? Did I miss that announcement?

Again sorry if I'm being annoying
Much Love ~Liz <3
