“I can't believe you're here” Harry beamed, after pulling away from our big hug.
He looks so happy to see his family. I'm glad I'm the person who put that smile on his face.
“Well, you have Jessica here to thank. She called me a little while ago and said to bring any family members who were able to make it” Anne explained.
“And you guys came too” Harry said, hugging his cousins, aunt and uncle.
After hugging all of his family members, he wrapped his arms around my waist as we remained standing in the hallway.
“So what do you want to do today Harry?” Robin asked.
“Absolutely anything, as long as I get to spend it with all of you” Harry replied, bringing a smile to everyone's face.
We spend all of Harry's birthday wandering around the city of Milan, except we didn't go to any of the place that Harry and I had been the day before. He told me that the places he takes me are special, just for us. We all went to lunch in a cute little cafe before heading to the arena. By the time we got there, it was an hour before 5 Seconds of Summer were due to be on stage. We headed into the One Direction dressing room to see Louis, Liam, Niall, Zayn, Eleanor, Sophia, Kendall, Perrie, Ashton, Luke, Calum, Michael, Louise, most of the boys security and their band, all wearing party hats. There were 'Happy Birthday' banners on the walls. I looked over at Harry to see his surprised yet extremely happy. I didn't even know they had been planning this. They all yelled happy birthday as we walked in the door, and came over to give Harry's hugs.
We all hung out in the dressing room for a while. There was a table full of different types of desserts, but I knew I couldn't eat any without feeling guilty and pretty much putting myself into a state of depression. It was almost like a little party for Harry. The 5SOS boys left at around twenty to seven to go get ready to go on stage. As they were leaving, I noticed Luke wink at me before walking out the door. I didn't think much of it, until I turned around and saw the puzzled look on Niall's face as he stared at me. He obviously noticed Luke's wink. Oh well..
Soon after the departure of the four boys, Paul politely told everyone who wasn't going on stage in an hour to please leave the room; meaning everyone who wasn't One Direction, get out. Harry came over to me just as I was gathering my handbag to leave. He gripped my hips and pulled me close so that my body was pressed against his. He placed his lips on mine, quickly slipped his tongue in my mouth, let our tongues play for a few seconds, before pulling away. He leaned his forehead on mine and smiled at me.
“I love you so much” he said.
I bit my lip to try contain my ginormous smile.
“Don't do that, or else I'll have to take you into a bathroom and fuck you before I go on stage. But that would ruin all my plans for tonight then” he said, catching me off guard with his dirty mouth.
I let out a gentle laugh, which resulted in him letting out a little laugh too. Just as he let go of my waist and stepped back a little, I pulled him back by wrapping my arms around his neck. His hands quickly found my waist again and he snaked them around my back. He seemed a little surprised by me pulling him back.
“I love you too” I whispered into his ear, before gently biting his ear lobe and walking away from him.
I turned back as I got to the door to see him staring at me with wide eyes. I licked my lips and winked at him before exiting the room.
I was standing in the box that the guys get at every concert venue for family members and friends to watch the show. I was standing next to Kendall out on the balcony part when I felt an arm around my waist. I got a fright and looked to see Gemma. She wrapped both of her arms around my stomach and rested her head on my shoulder, just like Harry does. Gemma, Kendall and I were the only people outside on the balcony watching the boys sing and jump around on stage. As I watched how happy Harry looked, I suddenly had an idea.
“Oh my gosh” I yelped, making Kendall and Gemma both jump a little.
Gemma released her grip on me and put her hand to her chest. I must have really scared her.. Haha.
“Jesus Jessica, give me a heart attack why don't you” she joked.
“Sorry” I apologized to her, “but I just had a really good idea”.
They both looked at me puzzled.
“It involves singing” I continued.
“Count me out” Gemma said, putting up her arms in a surrender type of way.
I grabbed Kendall's hand and went inside to the box. Once I noticed Eleanor, Perrie and Sophia, I approached them and began to tell them my plan. Kendall, Eleanor and Perrie were very enthusiastic about it. Sophia took a little convincing, but she was eventually on board. The guys were currently on stage singing Strong, meaning we had about approximately 12 minutes. The five of us ran out of the door to the private box and down the hallway. Thankfully, I'm good at memorizing directions, so I led the way back to the dressing rooms. As soon as I noticed Lou, I ran over to her and told her my idea. She began to panic but quickly began fixing my hair. She called over Caroline Watson, the woman who helped me the previous night and who I later learned her name, and Caroline began fixing Kendall's makeup. We didn't have enough time to get changed, so I was still wearing my outfit from this morning.
After Lou and Caroline fixed up all of our hair and makeup, we sprayed ourselves with a bit of perfume and deodorant and headed out of the dressing room. I noticed Paul and I quickly told him the idea. He was hesitant at first, but soon agreed and told us to quickly follow him. The people that put on Kendall's and I's earpieces the previous night did the same again and handed each of the five of us a microphone.
“Thank you everybody” Liam said into his mic, just as we finished singing Diana. Just one more song until the encore. Louis and Niall talked to the crowd for a minute. I took a big gulp of water from the nearest bottle I found, before pouring the rest of the water into the crowd, followed by the empty bottle. I love how all the little hands shoot up to try catch the bottle. Something so small and simple can mean so much to some of these people. Kinda like how Jessica is small and simple yet she means so much to me. Did I just compare my girlfriend to a plastic bottle? Good grief, I need sleep.
Louis introduced our next next and the tune of What Makes You Beautiful began to play and Liam got ready to sing. He began singing, but no sound came out. He seemed as if his microphone was broken. In the panic, Niall began trying to sing Liam's solo, but there was a problem with his mic too. The opening for the song kept going until a girl's voice filled the arena.
“You're insecure, don't know what for” the familiar yet unfamiliar voice sang.
“You turn heads when you walk through the dooooor” the voice continued.
The lads and I exchanged extremely confused looks as we walked to gather together near the band. Zayn was tapping on his mic, trying to figure out why it wasn't working.
“Everyone else in the room can see it” a different voice sang.
This voice wasn't familiar at all.
“Everyone but youuuu” the second voice continued.
I noticed the crowd begin to scream, wave and point. Niall tapped my shoulder and I turned around and followed his gaze to the five girls that were skipping down the ramp that we used to first come on stage.
“Baby you light up my world like nobody else” Jessica sang as she, Kendall, Eleanor, Perrie and Sophia skipped past us, completely blanking us.
“The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed” Jessica continued to sing as Kendall grabbed her hand and they continued skipping down the ramp and down the entire catwalk.
She finished the chorus before Perrie took control of the next verse.
“So c-c'mon, you got it wrong” Perrie sang.
The four other girls sang “bum, badum, badum” to the tune of the music. The five of them danced around, clapping their hands, shaking their hips and doing little kicks with their legs as Perrie sang the verse.
“Baby you light up my world like nobody else” Sophia began to sing.
Her voice was... different. It wasn't amazing, but it wasn't awful. Just different. She sang the rest of the chorus as the other girls sang slightly lower in the background. Much to my surprise, the crowd seemed to love them.
All five of them began singing the “na na na na” part as the clapped their hands in the air and began skipping back towards us. Each of them skipped up to their significant others. Jessica approached me with a big smile on her face. Her smile is too contagious for me to contain mine. She wrapped one arm around my neck as the other brought the microphone up to her mouth. I held her by wrapped one arm around her waist.
“Baby you light up my world like nobody else” she sang slowly, staring straight at my eyes.
“The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed” she continued, brushing her delicate fingers through my hair.
“But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell you don't know-oh-oh” she sang, making the smile on my face grow even bigger.
“You don't know you're beautif– ” I couldn't control himself anymore.
I held both sides of her face and pulled her to me until our lips met. In that moment, I didn't care that there was 80,000 people watching us right now. I love this girl with all my heart, and she's just sang to me in that beautiful, sweet voice of hers, in front of thousands of people. I don't care how many people are watching us, or taking pictures of me kiss her right now. I love her. I am beyond head-over-heels in love with her. There aren't words to describe the immense amount of love I have for this girl.
Eleanor continued the rest of the song and Jessica pulled away. I instantly wrapped my amrs around her head and she rested her head on my chest and wrapped her arms around my waist. The guys mics came back on and everyone joined Eleanor in singing the last chorus of the song. Jessica and I swayed back and forth, not releasing our tight embrace. I kissed her hair and she looked up at me with the biggest smile on her face that set off the butterflies in my stomach.
The crowd went completely insane as the song finished. I've honestly never heard a crowd scream so loud. Each of the guys either wrapped an arm around their girlfriend or took their hand. Jessica surprised me by pulling away, taking my hand, and walking a little down the ramp so that we were in the center of the main stage, at the top of the catwalk thing.
“Today is a very special person's birthday” she said into the mic, making the crowd scream some more.
Jessica laughed a little into the microphone, which made me smile.
“Sooo, I feel it is necessary to sing happy birthday” she continued.
The boys and their girls surrounded us on either side. Liam lifted his arm and counted down 3.. 2.. 1.. with his fingers. The whole crowd began singing happy birthday, but the only voice I was listening to, the only person I was look at, was the beautiful girl standing beside me.
“Happy birrrrrthdaaaay dearrrrrr Harrrryyyyy, happy birthday tooooo youuuuuu” she softly sang, harmonizing as she did.
She really has an incredible voice. I must remember to ask her if she wants to go anywhere with it, as in a career in singing. I was still holding Jessica's hand, and I jerked it towards mine and wrapped her arm around my waist before letting my hand go and wrapping it around her shoulders.
“Thank you very much everybody” I said into my mic.
I looked down at Jessica and she was smiling up at me.
“I just wanna say I love every single one of you so much. Boys, I love you all. And Jessica, I love you” I said, resulting in the crowd erupting with “aww”s.
Niall and Liam thanked the crowd as the rest of us headed up the ramp to get off stage for a few minutes until the encore. I decided to be spontaneous, so I bent down, grabbed Jessica by the back of the knees and the waist and picked her up bridal style. She looked at me in shock, with made me laugh, and my laugh made her laugh. I carried her up the ramp and off stage. The second we were out of the view of the crowd, I grabbed her face again.
“I love you” I said, then kissed her lips.
“I love you” I repeated, kissing her again.
“I love you” I said again, before Jessica pulled away a little and laughed.
“Are you gonna give me a chance to say I love you back?” she asked with a laugh.
“Just kiss me until I have to go back on stage” I demanded, pulling her face back to mine.
I didn't bother trailing my tongue softly along her bottom lip, asking for entrance like I normally do. I just pushed my tongue straight into her mouth and let it play with hers. A few minutes later, someone was tugging my t-shirt and I knew it was time to go back on. I ignored the tugging. I pulled Jessica closer to me, deepening the kiss. The tugging turned to someone tapping on my back. I still ignored it. I felt my heartbeat speed up. I grabbed Jessica's faced, trying to pull her as close as I possibly could to me before I had to go. I was suddenly pushed aside, which made my lips part Jessica. I knew there was a look of worry on my face as Paul continued to push me towards the stage again.
“I love you” I mouthed to Jessica.
NotesHiiiiiiii let me know what you think!
Reminder; this is Jessica's outfit except different shoes;
