Chapter Text

Stacie was finishing up the last bit of her assignment when her phone rang, looking at the caller I.D she saw that it was her best friend calling.

"Hey small stack." Stacie joked.

"What's up skyscraper?" Beca asked.

"Finishing up this assignment, it's kicking my ass. How's the music coming along?" Stacie replied.

Beca sighed "I'm just about finished and ready to send it in."

Stacie smiled "I'm happy for you Beca, your dream is finally coming true."

"Thanks Stace I appreciate that. But let's be real I couldn't have done this without your support." Beca said back.

"Yeah I guess you're right. I expect a nice shopping spree as a thank you when that check hits." Stacie joked.

Beca laughed "Done deal."

"When are you coming back? I miss my best friend." Stacie asked with a pout.

"I honestly don't know Stace. It's looking like next week." Beca answered.

"We can't spend my birthday together then?" Stacie asked.

"Sorry Stace, I tried to rush this song to be there tomorrow, but I had other things on the schedule." Beca said.

"I get it. It's alright honestly just sucks. We've always spent our birthdays together since we were kids." Stacie said with a sigh.

"I know, but I'll make up for it promise." Beca said with a smile.

"I'll hold you to it." Stacie said back.

"Look I'll call you tomorrow alright?" Beca asked.

"You better Mitchell." Stacie said.

The two hung up and Beca went back to her song. This song meant a lot to Beca not only because it was her first song  with Khalid's record label but the meaning behind it was huge. This song was coming out tomorrow and no one really knew that outside the label. Beca wanted this to be a surprise, a birthday surprise for Stacie. She also had a another part to the surprise that she knew Stacie was going to love. All in all everything about this song and day was huge and Beca wanted all of it to go according to plan.

Stacie had just finished everything and had gotten everything cleaned up when her phone went off. It was a text from an unknown number.

Unknown: 12pm, Hits 99.9, tune in.

Stacie read the text over and over still confused by who or what this was.

Stacie: Uhhh who's this? And why?

Unknown: Hits 99.9 just tune in at 12pm! You won't regret it.

Stacie: Ok.

Stacie looked her phone and thought about it before deciding she might as well just tune in. She was still curious as to why she wouldn't regret it.

The next morning Stacie woke up to the usual birthday texts but didn't see one from her best friend which she didn't make a big deal out of. Stacie figured Beca pulled another all-nighter for her song was still sleeping. She went about her usual morning routine and by the time she finished she saw that it was almost 12pm. She quickly pulled out her phone and opened the radio app and tuned into Hits 99.9 like the text said.

"Welcome everyone to Hits 99.9 the best spot to listen to all your favorite songs! Today is going to be a special one as we have a brand-new single from a brand-new artist."

"No way!"  Stacie thought to herself "This can't be Beca can it?"

"This new single is from DJ Khalid's newest signed talent, Beca Mitchell. This song is called "All of Me" enjoy."

The beginning of the song started with the piano and Stacie instantly focused all her attention and focus to hear what her best friend cooked up.

"What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright."

Stacie was trying to figure out who this song was for as the message was pretty clear.

"My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh."

"Wow this is beautiful." Stacie said out loud.

"How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you."

Stacie was mesmerized by the emotion and vocal range Beca was putting on display with the song. Stacie knew Beca had the most beautiful voice she'd ever heard, but this was different.

"Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard

"'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh."

The final piano keys played out and Stacie couldn't help but become overwhelmed with emotions. She was happy that her best friend had finally achieved her lifelong dream and officially release a song on the radio. She felt emotional because of how beautiful and powerful that song was. Lastly she was feeling emotional because the very same girl she had feelings for just released a powerful love song, and she didn't know what that meant for her.

"Wow people I don't know about you guys, but I feel like buying my wife two dozen roses now." The host joked "Now let's welcome the beautiful girl behind the beautiful song, Beca Mitchell."

"Thank you for having me." Beca said.

"Pleasure is all ours Beca, now tell us about this song. Sounded like there was a meaning behind it?" The host asked.

Beca smiled and nodded "Yes indeed there is."

Stacie knew there was a combination of a smirk and smile on that face.

"The song was meant for this beautiful girl I have in my life. This girl who since the moment I met has been the center of my universe. This girl who has never ever given up on me no matter how difficult I've been. This girl who has always been able to push me out of my comfort zone and do these crazy amazing things. This girl who has spent the past decade and a half as my best friend. This girl with the heart of gold and the brain of a genius." Beca said.

Stacie was speechless right now with tears slowly streaming down her face. She couldn't believe this.

"Wow that's deep. Sounds like quite the special and lucky girl." The host said.

"Oh she is special, but I'm the lucky one. You know what, it's actually her birthday today. Happy birthday belleza, I hope you enjoyed your present." Beca said.

Stacie gasped she really couldn't believe that all this was actually her gift. Now it made sense why Beca was busting herself night in and night out for this song. She wanted it to be a birthday surprise.

"So is this a declaration of sorts?" The host asked.

"Yup, see I struggle with speaking how I feel, so I figured why not convey my feelings by what I do best and that's music." Beca answered.

"That's a beautiful way to tell her and I hope she enjoys it all." The host said with a smile.

"I do to." Beca said.

The interview ended and Beca got into the car that was driving her around. She told the driver the address of where she wanted to go and the driver took off.

Stacie meanwhile as still in shock over everything. She had just found out that her best friend wrote the most beautiful song ever as a birthday gift for her and declared her love for her. To say Stacie was emotional would be an understatement. She was so caught up that she completely forgot about the phone in her hand. She dialed Beca's number.

"What's up Stace?" Beca answered with a smirk.

"What the hell just happened Beca?" Stacie asked.

"Wouldn't you like to know." Beca joked.

"I would love to actually if you wouldn't mind explaining." Stacie said.

"You'll get your answer soon enough." Beca said before she quickly hung up.

What the hell is that supposed to mean. Stacie thought to herself just as someone knocked twice on her door. She walked over to the front door revealing non-other than Beca who stood there with a smirk and arms crossed.

"Happy birthday belleza." Beca said.

Once again Stacie didn't know what to do. Beca sewing this chuckled and made her way inside the apartment closing the door behind her.

"Anyone home?" Beca joked knocking on the side of Stacie's head.

Stacie swatted her hand "Sorry it's just what are you doing here?"

"Spending your birthday with you? Like we've done for the past fifteen years." Beca said raising a brow.

"Enough with the sarcasm please. Just tell me what all this means." Stacie said with a sigh.

Beca held both of Stacie's hand and pulled her close before slowly kissing the taller girl.

"It means that I Beca Mitchell love you Stacie Conrad with all my heart and soul. I am completely in love with you." Beca said once they broke apart.

Stacie smiled through her tears "I love you to with all I got."
