When we got out of the plane the next day I couldn’t stop smiley. Nashville, Tennessee. I was finally were I had always wanted to be. The home town of country music, a beautiful city with an amazing story.
Allie: OMG it’s so beautiful here!
Austin: Come on, we’re only in the airport. Let’s get to the hotel! Then you’re gonna be excited.
Allie: I already am!
When we went to get out lockage Robert walked up to me and tried to take my hand. I hadn’t been speaking with him since last night. I needed to speak with both him and Peyton. I needed to tell them how I felt, even though it was going to hurt both of them.
We arrived at the hotel a little hour later. The boys went out to get something to eat but I still didn’t eat much so I was just sitting in my room. I had a single room because I needed some room while we were here. This was the hotel everyone stayed on. It was really nice to see all of the artists as they arrived to the hotel. We were about 20 different artists who were going to perform.
Suddenly while I was unpacking some of my stuff someone knocked on the door. I opened the door and saw Austin. I didn’t expect him to walk around here without anyone.
Austin: can we talk?
Austin: It’s about Robert and Peyton.
Allie: wait you know?
Austin: know what?
Allie: Nothing continue…
Austin: Robert told me that you guys kissed last night after the movie… but Peyton told me that he likes you. It’s just… they are my brothers. Don’t hurt any of them.
Allie: I don’t have a choice. No matter what I do I’ll hurt either both of them or one of them. It isn’t easy you know that right?
Austin: Yeah I know…
Allie: why are you even telling me this? I know both of them like me, and I know I need to speak with Peyton about what happened but I know he’s going to be both mad and sad and I don’t want that to happen. I care too much about him for that.
Austin: I don’t know I just wanted someone to speak with and you seemed like there was something a little more going on inside of your head than only this.
Allie: How do you do that?
Austin: Do what?
Allie: read me like I was a book and not a person.
Austin: Because you haven’t been smiling and you’re only interested in singing and you’re not eating. That’s typical sign of telling that something is wrong.
Allie: I don’t wanna go home. I like being here.
Austin: You don’t have to go home.
Allie: I do. I have to finish school. There’s only 10 days left when I come home. And I don’t know when I will see you guys again or if I ever will see you.
Austin: I promise you it isn’t the last time that you’re seeing me.
Allie: You can say it all you want but that’s not going to make me believe in it. Austin I used to be your fan and all I dreamed of was meeting you. Tomorrow I’m on the stage with you and my other huge idol, whom I’m now in love with and have been sleeping in the same room as for about a week now. My life is surreal and I don’t want it to stop.
He hugged me and then got up from my bed.
Austin: it’s gonna be okay. I promise Allie.
He left my room and I finished unpacking my stuff.
When I was done I took my guitar and started playing another song that I had been working on. It wasn’t finished yet but I started writing it last week when I was in the plane on my way over here.
Here I am with all my heart I hope you understand I know I let you down But I’m never gonna make that mistake again You brought me closer To who I really am Come take my hand I want the world to see What you mean to me What you mean to me
Peyton: that’s really beautiful.
I got up from the bed and stopped playing.
Allie: hey… I didn’t see you.
Peyton: did I scare you?
Allie: a bit.
He walked up to me and hugged me.
Allie: we need to talk about something that has happened. Can you please sit down?
We sat down on the bed and I took his hands.
Allie: Peyton, I love you, and I really do. You mean the world to me and I can’t believe that I’ve been hanging out with you for about a week now. I’m gonna miss you so much when I’m going home. I’ve never cared about a person the way I care about you. But…
Allie: My heart is going more than one way…
Peyton: what do you mean?
Allie: I really like Robert too…
At the same time Robert walked into my room and saw that I was holding hands with Peyton.
Robert: what’s going on here?
