I woke up next morning because my phone kept ringing.
I was so annoyed when people woke me up in the morning.
Peyton: where are you?
Allie: Still at Austin’s hotel why?
Peyton: You were supposed to be home half an hour ago.
Peyton: it’s 12.30.
Allie: shit… I’m sorry Peyton! I was sleeping; I get really tired when I’m upset.
Peyton: it’s okay. Just come home right away.
Allie: I will.
I hang up and lay back down in bed. I didn’t feel like going home. I wanted to stay with Austin.
Austin looked at me.
Austin: what’s wrong?
Allie: it’s late and I have to go home. We’re going to the studio tonight BTW we’re gonna do another cover. You and me.
Austin: what time?
Allie: meet us there at 7.
Allie: We’re gonna do a song together all four of us too.
Austin: OMG that’s awesome!
Allie: I know right? But don’t tell the others. It’s a surprise.
Austin: I won’t. I promise!
I got up and walked out to the bathroom to change into something a little more comfortable. I fell asleep in my clothes that I had worn all day yesterday. I was just about to run out of Austin’s hotel room when he stopped me.
Austin: give me just a minute to say good bye to you.
Allie: But we’re going to see each other in a couple of hours.
Austin: Can I follow you home then?
Allie: Sure but take Dave with ya. I don’t want you to be attacked or something when you’re going home.
He looked at me weirdly.
Allie: You’re not gonna do it. Are you?
Allie: Fine let’s leave then.
We ran across the road and through the park. We stopped there and looked at each other. I was smiling and singing.
You know you love, I know you care
Just shout whenever, and I’ll be there
You are my love, you are my heart
And we will never, ever, ever, be apart
Are we an item? Boy quit playin’
“we’re just friends” what are you sayin?
Said “there’s another”, and looked right in my eyes.
My first love broke my heart for the first time.
Austin: you should do a cover of that song one day.
Allie: I’m gonna work more on my originals.
Austin: But you just gotta sing! Your voice is strong and isn’t that really what it’s about? Singing because you want it and because you can do it.
Allie: Sweet little Austin, I can do so much more than just singing.
Austin: Yeah I’ve figured that out already.
Allie: what’s that supposed to mean?
Austin: Peyton, Robert, Me? Isn’t that enough said. You were here for 2 weeks, I know it wasn’t enough for me but when I saw you after and was here for you I realized that you had taken my heart too.
Allie: I’m sorry about that.
Austin: it’s not your fault. You can help the fact that you’re adorable.
I looked down in the ground and smiled. We were almost there. Austin took my hand and I just let him hold it. We were holding hands all the way back to Peyton’s apartment. He came out just as I let go of Austin’s hand. I didn’t want any drama to happen between my best friend and the person I was in love with. I hugged Austin and then walked inside with Peyton.
Peyton: what took you so long?
Allie: I had to change before I got up and walked on the streets. I can go out in the same clothes two days in a row. That’s disgusting.
Allie: You don’t think I had sex with him do you?
Peyton: No why would I?
Allie: Because you act like I’ve been cheating on you or something.
Peyton: why were you holding hands?
Allie: You gotta be kidding me.
Peyton: I’m not! Why were you holding his hand?
Allie: Because he’s my friend and we do that kind of stuff. I hold his hand and I kiss his cheek. Just like I do with Dylan and some of my friends from Denmark! It’s not like it’s gonna mean anything.
Peyton: It will when the paparazzi starts to attack you. If you don’t remember you were hanging out with your biggest idol the other day.
