Michael on your birthday would literally be the cutest thing. You’d noticed he was staying a little later at the studio during the week, but you’d chalked it up to them working even harder to get the new album out. In reality, he was desperately asking the boys what to do for your birthday and having them help him plan a surprise party.
Of course, the day of, nothing goes right. The cake never comes, the balloons say, “Congrats, Grad!”, and your parent’s flights get cancelled. He’s honestly so close to a break down because what if you come home to nothing? He would be crushed at the look on your face.
Then the boys bring in back-up. Calum brings in a cake that he bake (or tried to), Ashton and Luke spent an hour on blowing up balloons and almost passed out, and Michael miraculously manages to set up a Skype with your parents just before you get home from work.
After a party filled with friends and family and laughter, you and Michael go to bed exhausted but happy. He tells you everything that could have been, and you can’t help but smile at just how sweet this boy is. “It was perfect,” you whisper to him.
And you both fall asleep with a smile on your faces.
