"But you promised me to be there!", Shannon sighed, staring into Michael’s eyes through the screen, only to find nothing but gulit there.
"I’m so sorry, baby, you know that I tried everything to convince them! I even talked to our manager, but he said that they couldn’t delay the gig."
Shannon felt a lump in her throat and disappointment rising in her stomach. Almost exactly a year ago, Michael had asked her to be his girlfriend and this weekend would’ve been their one year anniversary.
The couple had a long distance relationship at the moment, because Michael was constantly on tour with the other boys and Shannon had to stay at home, because she had to focus on school. The constant separation of the two luckily worked out quite well, although they missed eachother a lot, and it only made the moments they’re able to share so much more beautiful.
That was one of the reasons why Shannon had looked forward to their anniversary so much: Michael had promised to stay with her the whole weekend - and now she wouldn’t even be able to see him for an hour.
"Yeah, sure", she said, trying to stop her voice from shaking and the tears in her eyes from falling down. "I know you can’t just leave the boys hanging. I understand."
"Babe, I’m so sorry. I’ll make it up to you, I promise.", he said, regret filling his eyes as he saw the ones of his girlfriend watering. "I love you."
"I love you, too", Shannon answered, he voice shaking. "Talk to you later, okay?"
Then they hung up.
That had been four days ago and Shannon had cried a lot since then. She hadn’t wanted Michael to notice how much his absence on their anniversary really got to her, so she had ended that skype conversation rather fast, but the days since that had been awful for her.
By now, the dreaded day was there, and Shannon had herself curled up in a dozen of blankets with chocolate inside of her bed, her laptop on her knees. She was watching all the covers Michael had recorded only for her to listen to, silent teardrops rolling down her face.
But suddenly, there was a knock on the door.
"What?", Shannon groaned and rolled around to face the door, curious why her mum would disturb her even though she had pleaded her to leave her alone today.
Her mum just smiled at her warmly: “There’s someone who wants to see you.”
Then she stepped aside and behind her - stood Michael, an adorable nervous grin on his face.
Shannon threw the blankets aside quickly and jumped out of the bed, approaching the door quickly.
"Mickey!", she shouted and threw her arms around his neck, pulling him close to her. Finally.
He just laughed and kissed her tenderly, first on her cheek, then on her mouth.
"I couldn’t leave my princess alone today, could I?"
Shannon stepped back as Michael intertwined his fingers with hers, a happy grin invading her features.
"But.. what about the boys? What about the gig?"
"Uhm.. there never was a gig. I just - I wanted to surprise you."
Shannon couldn’t believe it - in a good way. She couldn’t believe the luck she had, couldn’t believe how it was possible that she could call this amazing boy hers.
"I hate you.", she sighed, still smiling, and let his head fall against his chest.
"You love me", Michael just said and wrapped his arms around his girl.
