I fell asleep in Peyton’s arms shortly after the movie started. We weren’t going to do anything the next day so I enjoyed just being able to sleep as long as I needed to.
A couple of days went by. I was getting used to the thought of living in the U.S but I really needed my own place. Tammy helped me look every single day but it was hard, because living on your own as a 16 year old star wasn’t something you just did. It had to be safe too.
Tammy: what about this one. It’s not far from here or the studio. So you can still come over for dinner often?
Allie: I don’t know. Isn’t it expensive?
Tammy: Isn’t your company going to pay?
Allie: yeah but still…
I looked out of the window. It was raining outside. I was tired and I started work tomorrow so I just had to get some rest.
Peyton walked into the living room where Tammy and I sat with thousands of papers. Or that’s how it felt.
I looked at him and sounded a little sad. Truth was that I was really tired and just wanted to go get some rest. I had been sick since Friday and my voice had to be ready for tomorrow.
I took a deep breath and looked back on the papers.
Allie: Can we take a break from this?
I took my tea from the table and walked up to the guestroom where I had most of my things.
Peyton was down in the living room I could hear him speak with his mom.
Tammy: How do you feel about that she’s moving out again?
Peyton: Do I even have to tell you?
Tammy: not really…
Peyton: it’s gonna be weird. I like it best when she’s just here with us.
Tammy: I know. Maybe you should go with her for a couple of days till she’s feeling better in her new home.
Peyton: I don’t know… maybe it’s better I don’t. Of course I wanna live with her but I don’t wanna seem desperate.
Tammy: I guess. Go check on her. She didn’t seem like feeling to good.
Peyton: She isn’t. She’s sick.
Tammy: poor thing. I hope she’s ready for tomorrow.
Peyton: I’m sure she is.
I heard Peyton run up the stairs. I was lying in the bed. Actually the guestroom was my room but I always slept next to Peyton.
Peyton: hey babe.
Peyton: Are you okay?
Allie: yeah just tired.
He lay down beside me and kissed me on the cheek.
Peyton: Are you going to be ready to work tomorrow?
Allie: yeah… I called Jake and he promised me that I wouldn’t be singing tomorrow. So it’s gonna be great.
Peyton: what are you going to do?
Allie: I don’t know… I think we had to plan something for the farewell concerts in Denmark because my mom wants them to be a part of it.
Peyton: of course.
Peyton was playing with my hair and looked at me. I couldn’t ever doubt that the boy was in love with me. He looked at me as if I was the only thing he saw.
We sat in the guestroom for the rest of the day. I slept most of the time because I had to get better but it wasn’t helping me much.
The next day I woke up because I heard Jake’s voice outside my door. He was arguing with Peyton.
Peyton: Just let her sleep. She’s sick.
Jake: I don’t care she could have called.
I reached out for my phone but it wasn’t there. I got up and looked at my Danish phone which I was hiding in my bag. It was 11.30. I had to be at the studio at 10. I wasn’t feeling good at all but I had to do this.
I stormed out of the door.
Allie: what the fuck?! Where’s my phone?
Peyton handed me my phone.
Allie: Peyton! It’s work! I actually wanna be serious about this.
Peyton: I’m sorry.
Allie: Jake I’m really sorry about this. Give me 10 minutes to get into some clothes and to brush my teeth.
Peyton: Allie you should be in your bed. You’re sick.
Allie: just leave it okay. It won’t be late. Beside I’m off Thursday and I can sleep when I get home.
He looked at me like he was going to give up. He hated when I was like this to him.
I finished within 5 minutes and ran out to the care where I met a very angry Barry.
Allie: Barry I’m really sorry but I can explain! Peyton took my phone so and turned the alarm off and I’m sick so I’m sleeping a lot...
Barry: Don’t bother me with your story Allie. This is important and you’ll have to be there on time from now on.
Allie: yeah. I’m sorry. It won’t happen again.
We took off to the studio and started working. I knew from that moment that this was going to be really hard especially if Peyton was going to be like that every time I was sick.
