“Come in” Ella rushed and opened the door hoping that it was her friends that called earlier that they are on their way to her house.
only to open it and see Daniel standing outside. She put on a straight face.
“You again? what do you want this time?” Ella asked with a frown Face wondering why he came again.
“Here. Happy birthday” Daniel said stretching a bag filled with gifts to Ella with a smile. Ella was shocked when she heard
that from Daniel. Yes, it was her birthday but she never told anyone except her friends. Then, how come Daniel now knows today is her birthday” she kept asking herself over and over again without any reasonable answer.
“Please, please do accept it. Ella, it’s from my heart. it’s very little but I beg you, please accept it, please. Please don’t turn it down” Daniel said when Ella couldn’t say anything. she took the gift forcefully from Daniel’s hand.
“Thank You. But by the way, who told you that today is my birthday?” Ella asked. “Well hmm. I bumped into your friend Jennifer in the supermarket and she told me” Daniel responded.
“Jennifer?” Ella asked surprisedly
“Yes. We got talking and she told me that today is your birthday. that’s how I got to know about it. I’m very sorry if I shouldn’t” Daniel replied.
“No. it’s not your fault. Let me just get my hands on that Jennifer” Ella responded angrily.
“Oh, no-no-no. Take it easy on her. It’s not her fault. I was just thinking that” Daniel got interrupted by Ella.
“Point of information. Please I do not appreciate every student in the school coming to my house and knowing
everything about me”
Ella said and Daniel nodded his head. “Yeah. I realize that too. But, part of information. I’m not a student. I graduated from that school 4years ago and I did my master’s three years back. When you saw me in school, I came to retrieve my time script. That’s why I’m” Daniel stopped when he heard some sounds. He looked back to see a taxi riding into the compound with Ella’s friends sitting as the only passengers.
“Awww. I can see that you and your friends are ready to party” Daniel said.
“Yes,” Ella responded with a smile.
“Okay. that’s good. like I said before, I’m sorry to intrude. I will be on my way. once more, Happy birthday” Daniel said and left with his car. the three friends of Ella came down from the taxi and paid the taxi man off. They hurried to meet Ella except for Jennifer who was reluctant to do So.
“This your guy is rich oh,” Dave said with a smile. “It’s not what you think joor” Ella responded with a frown. “His equally handsome. I wish I’m the one he’s dating” Queen said.
“You can go and have him if you want,” Ella said and they laughed. Queen and Dave went into the house. Jennifer sluggishly walks to Ella giving her a little distance.
“Let my hands descend on you,” Ella said walking inside. Jennifer followed behind.

Daniel can’t help but smile each time he stares at her beautiful face. He dreamt of making her his better half and it’s now coming to reality. Ever since he met Ella, he couldn’t help but fall for her over and over again. Daniel and Ella bought ice creams and returned back to his car.
