AN: So I was reading the Hollywood Heights Tumblr tag, and I saw yhan88 posted the link to my fanfiction, thanks and I'm glad you like it :) Thank you to the people who reblogged it and liked it as well, I love you all and when I get positive feedback or even criticism it makes me want to continue writing. So please keep reviewing. The other fanfiction I have one chapter of written, but I need to plan the plotline out better, or else I might get five chapters in and get a serious case of writers block lol so that might be up tomorrow or Saturday.
It hadn't taken Loren long to figure the kitchen out, even while her vision was blurry she could easily find all the ingredients she needed to make pancakes. She hesitated before turning the stove on, she still had a terrible phobia of flames, and who could blame her, she took a sigh of relief when she found out it was an electric, still could easily start a fire, but not an open flame. She started pouring the pancakes on the stove, and was flipping the last couple of them when she felt a familiar pair of hands wrap around her waist.
Loren: Well good morning handsome.
Eddie: Good morning to you too beautiful, I didn't hear you wake up.
Loren: Oh I'm like a ninja, I didn't want to wake you up before breakfast was ready.
Eddie: Ha, well it smells delicious none of my girlfriends have ever cooked for me before.
Loren frowned: You could date anyone in the entire world, and none of your girlfriends have ever cooked?
Eddie: Well I usually went for the beautiful airhead models, ones such as Chloe, but now I not only get the beauty but the brains as well.
Loren blushed and butterflies fluttered in her stomach.
Loren laughed: Well thank you, I couldn't stay the same, but at least you're handsome right?
Eddie: Well aren't you hilarious Ms. Tate, what would you like to do today? We don't have dinner with Nora and Pops until seven, and it's your birthday so we can do anything you want.
Loren: Hmm, anything?
Loren: Um, I'm not sure, surprise me?
Eddie: Ok Ms. Tate, after we eat this delicious breakfast you'll get the surprise of your lifetime.
Eddie and Loren sat down at the table and enjoyed a quiet breakfast together.
Melissa woke up still in yesterday's clothes, her face salty from all the tears that had run down it the previous night. She took a shower then decided it would be best if she went out, to get her mind off of things, so she grabbed her laptop and walked down the stairs. She was about to walk out the door when Lisa came into the room.
Lisa: Good morning Melissa, what were you crying about last night?
Melissa: Nothing, I just stubbed my toe is all.
Melissa walked out the door, crushed that her mother didn't inquire about anything else, but she couldn't cry anymore, today she had to do something. So she walked into the café and sat down to edit her latest film project. She was concentrating on her project and didn't even notice Tyler slide into the seat across from her until he spoke up.
Tyler: What's up?
Melissa jumped: Oh hey Tyler, just working on a movie.
Tyler: Oh are you interested in moviemaking?
Melissa: Yeah I have a scholarship to UCLA for filmmaking.
Tyler: Wow that's pretty cool, must mean you're pretty good at it.
Melissa: I'm ok, I have a blog if you're interested.
Tyler: Oh yeah I'd like to see some of your work, text me the URL, and promise me something?
Melissa: Um sure ok what is it?
Tyler: That I'll have a part in your first movie.
Melissa smiled: Of course.
Ian picked up the ring around noon and drove towards Melissa's house. He knocked on the door and was greeted by Lisa.
Lisa: Well hello there Ian, Melissa isn't here right now, I think she's at the café.
Ian: Ok thank you Mrs. Sanders.
Lisa: Oh no problem and you can call me Lisa.
Ian walked towards his car then drove to the café, only to be met by the sight of what looked like Melissa and Tyler flirting, and instant jealously flared inside of Ian and he stormed into the café, ready to confront Tyler.
Eddie loved how caring Loren was, and how down to earth, she never asked for anything, even for her birthday. But today she was going to get something she wasn't expecting, something she would never forget. He was hoping she would ask him to pick somewhere to go today, well actually he knew Loren so well he knew she wouldn't know what to do. So the night before while Loren was sleeping he had arranged a little boat ride for him and Loren, he packed a bag full of all the stuff they would need, including Loren's birthday present. He had had it custom made just for her, and she deserved nothing less. He could tell how much Loren wanted to know where they were going.
Loren: Eddddie, where are we going?
Eddie: You're just going to have to wait and see.
He drove to a pier, where a decent sized boat was parked waiting for them. He heard Loren take in a breath.
Loren: Wow Eddie, is this your boat?
Eddie: Well it's my dad's but he said we could borrow it, I was thinking we could head out and just anchor in the middle of nowhere to eat lunch, it's really peaceful out there.
Loren: Sounds amazing. Do you know how to drive this thing though?
Eddie: Do you think when my parents and I came here I just sat around and listened to them reminisce over the olden days? My dad taught me to drive this thing when I was fourteen.
Loren laughed: Ok but don't drive too fast ok? I hate going fast.
Eddie jumped on the boat then helped Loren on, and revved the engine. When Loren jumped he laughed and started to driving towards somewhere where no one would ever find them. He loved speeding up at random times and watching Loren jump every single time and grab him.
Loren: You know eventually it won't be funny anymore.
Eddie laughed: Eventually but not right now.
Eddie anchored the boat in a spot where all you could see was the blue of the ocean for miles and miles, the water had to be at least fifteen feet deep but the water was so crystal clear you could see the bottom perfectly. Eddie walked down into the cabin and picked up the picnic basket he had packed for lunch, pastrami sandwiches, one of Loren's favorites. He helped her up onto to the top of the boat where the laid down in the sun together eating their pastrami sandwiches, a perfect birthday lunch.
Melissa watched Ian storm into the café, looking very angry which she didn't understand, he should look sorry for what he did right? Why mad at her, she didn't cheat on him.
Melissa: Oh Ian, what are you doing here? *She says with a tone of disgust*
Tyler: Oh is this the pig you were telling me about?
Melissa: The one and only.
Ian: Melissa I need to talk to you, just give me five minutes.
Melissa: You don't deserve it, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, do you mind leaving for a few minutes Tyler?
Tyler: Of course, you better not hurt her again Ian.
Tyler stood up and left, then Ian sat down in the chair Tyler had sat in.
Melissa: Ok out with it, what do you want?
Ian: Mel, I'm so sorry, I can't describe how badly I feel about this whole situation, I just wish I could take it all back and-
Melissa: Well you can't take it back ok?
Ian: I understand that Mel, and I want you to know that I will do anything, and I mean anything to gain your trust back.
Melissa stood up to leave: Well glad to know Ian, but once a cheater always a cheater.
Ian stood up and grabbed her arm, then reached into his pocket to pull out the ring. He got down on one knee, taking Melissa by surprise.
Loren couldn't believe that Eddie had done all of this for her, she loved him so much, they just sat on the boat for what felt like hours, just talking about anything and everything together. Then Eddie took Loren by surprise when he stood up, took his shirt off and jumped into the water.
Loren: Eddie! What are you doing?!
Eddie: Going for a swim, care to join me?
Loren: You know I don't swim, besides I don't even have a bathing suit and even if I did, you know how much I hate well you know about my burns.
Loren was very self conscious of her burns, the burns that ran all the way up and down her body, she rarely wore shorts, let alone a bathing suit.
Eddie: Do you think anyone out here will care? It's just you and me, and Nora gave me a bathing suit for you, she told me how much you used to love to swim!
Loren considered it, she had loved to swim before her accident. She had even dreamed of being an Olympic swimmer one day, but that was just her eleven year old self dreaming.
Loren sighed: Ok, but only for you, where's my swimsuit?
Eddie told her where it was and fifteen minutes she came out in a blue bikini, which she would of never bought for herself but knew her Mom would. Loren also found a pair of goggles in her suitcase, that were just like sunglasses that she could wear in the water. She felt exposed in her bikini, so before Eddie even had time to look at her she jumped off the boat and into the water. She loved the way the saltwater felt on her skin, cool and refreshing, exactly the way it had been eight years ago, the last time she had gone swimming in the ocean. She pushed down the memory, she had gone with her dad and her mom, and the majority of times she was with her dad were bad memories. She swam towards the sound of Eddie's laughter, her new goggles made it nearly impossible for her to see anything. She screamed when Eddie swam from underneath her and grabbed her leg.
Eddie: What? So I thought you said you had never swam before?
Loren: Ok ok you caught me, I used to love to swim before, well before the accident, but you knew that, apparently my Mom told you?
Eddie: Nah, I was lying, I knew you would fall for it.
She could almost see the sly grin he must have been wearing at that moment. For the next hour they swam and splashed like little kids, after they were both out of breath and exhausted from laughing so much they got out of the water and changed into dry clothes.
Eddie: Ready for your present Loren?
Loren: What present?
Eddie: You didn't think I wouldn't get you a birthday present did you?
Loren: Ha, well I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be.
Eddie placed a box in her hands, wrapped in silver paper, she unwrapped it and opened the box then gasped. She could almost clearly see it, the word Leddie, written in fancy cursive made of solid silver, on a gold chain with two diamond music notes on each side. Leddie was Loren and Eddie's celebrity nickname, though she wasn't a celebrity, being with Eddie made her an instant celebrity by association.
Loren: Eddie, it-it's perfect.
Eddie helped her put it on and said: Purchased by yours truly, the biggest Leddie supporter of them all.
