Jake smiled even brighter and looked at Barry and then back at me.
Allie: Why are you staring like that?
Mr. Weiss: Allie can we talk?
We walked out into Barry’s car.
Mr. Weiss: Allie I really liked how you acted in there.
Allie: thanks’ I really tried to do my best.
Mr. Weiss: Allie? I have something that I want to offer you. It’s a full contract with me and Jake as your managers. But there’s one thing… you’ll have to move to Atlanta as soon as possible.
Allie: I am in… but you need to speak with my mom too. Beside that there’re some things we need to speak about before I sign anything. I want to say my opinion too, because this is my music.
Barry: of course. Is it possible to get your mom over here or fax the contract to her?
Allie: we can fax it to her.
Barry: that would be good.
We spoke for almost an hour until Jake came out.
Jake: Allie? Austin just called; he asked you if you’re coming home anytime soon?
I looked at Barry who smiled and let me out of the car.
Allie: You can take me home now.
I went out of the car and just as Jake was about to shut the door Barry stepped out of the car.
Barry: I’ll be faxing the contract to your mom when I get home and then she can call me in a couple of hours about it.
Allie: Thank you!
I smiled as I went over to the other car with Jake. He smiled too.
When we sat in the car on our way back to Austin’s place I couldn’t stop thinking about something.
Allie: Jake? Can I ask you something?
Allie: Why haven’t you signed management with me before if you’ve wanted to support me so much all this time?
Jake: Because I needed someone to work with. I’ve kinda been your manager all the time but it’s just going to be easier now if your mom is signing this too.
Allie: I guess.
We arrived at Austin’s place. There was so dark in there and it seemed like no one was home. I called Austin and shortly after there was light in his room.
Austin: what’s up?
Allie: I just wanted to know if you were home. Everything seems so quiet.
Austin: yeah I was just watching a movie…
Allie: well I’m coming up now.
I hung up on him and hugged Jake before I went out of the car.
Jake: Allie, I’ll be calling you in the morning about this.
As soon as I was inside me and Austin room I lay down in bed. I was so tired and I just wanted to sleep but Austin came over to me and lay down beside me. Neither of us said anything.
He hugged me close; it was so close that I could feel his breath. There were only a few inches between our heads. I felt his breath as he moved closer to me. I knew what was going on was wrong but I couldn’t stop myself. I needed that kiss.
I felt his lips gently against mine. They were warm and a bit bigger than Peyton’s. His hands got up in my hair and around my neck. I couldn’t stop. It was just so surreal. I actually didn’t feel like stopping him. Our bodies were close and we melted in to one person.
