He closed the door behind us and walked with me inside of the living room. We sat down on the couch and he took my hands.
Austin: Allie what happened?
I was still crying, I didn’t even know what happened. I just knew that I hadn’t seen him for a long time. He hadn’t even texted me.
Austin hugged me and wiped away the tears from my eyes.
Austin: Allie you need to speak with someone about it.
Allie: I don’t even know what happened, Austin…
Austin: one of you must have said something.
Allie: I called him a jerk and a stuck up idiot and we haven’t spoken since. He wanted me to focus a little more on him because I wasn’t home and because I was in Denmark over the Christmas. He wanted me to celebrate Christmas with him and his family.
Austin and I spoke for a long time about everything that happened. I missed hanging out with him. He always made me feel better. He was texting a lot while he was here.
Allie: who are you texting all the time?
Austin: Just this girl I met.
Allie: are you dating someone?
Austin: no not really… but I think I like this girl.
Allie: wow. So who is she?
Austin: Just some girl I met.
Allie: tell me about her? Was she at my party?
Austin: yeah she actually was…
Allie: really? Who was she walking around with?
Austin: It doesn’t matter.
At the same time someone knocked on my door. Austin got up and opened the door. He went outside and spoke with a person. I wanted to know who was there but I wasn’t going to know before they would come back in. Austin had told me to stay while he was going outside.
Austin: You owe me big time for this one. I just told her that I was texting some girl.
Peyton: I’m sorry. Is she okay?
Austin: No she’s not. She’s terrible. She thinks you guys broke up or something?
Peyton: What? No never… I just got home yesterday so I haven’t been able to contact her and when I called she didn’t pick up.
Austin: dude she’s freaking out. You better go speak with her. How long haven’t you guys spoken?
Peyton: 2 weeks? But I told her that I wasn’t going to be much online and that I wouldn’t have my phone with me.
Austin: just go speak with her. I love her. I don’t wanna see her like that.
I was getting a little nervous. Who was he speaking with? The door went up and someone came in but it wasn’t Austin.
I felt tears and anger inside of my body. How did he dare to show up like that?! Austin came in behind him smiling all over the face.
Allie: Austin what is he doing here?!
Peyton: I thought you wanted to see me.
Allie: wanted to see you? You haven’t spoken to me in two weeks and then you just randomly show up at my doorstep expecting me to jump into your arms or what?
Peyton: I’m sorry. I told you I was out of the country to work with my first full album. You know that.
Allie: No you didn’t tell me anything! You haven’t said a word to me the past three weeks and you come back and expect that there’s still an us?
Peyton: I’d hoped so.
Allie: Then you hoped wrong. I’m sorry. Please leave my house.
Peyton: Allie, don’t…
Allie: Just leave.
Peyton went out of the door and I sat down crying on the floor. I didn’t want to do this anymore. I just wanted to go home. I knew I was home but I wanted to go home to Denmark.
Austin came over to me and looked at me.
Austin: I’m sorry Allie. I thought you wanted to see him?
Allie: Just leave Austin. I’ll go do some work instead.
Austin: Why is it that you’re always doing this?
Allie: doing what?
Austin: every time you need a friend you’re just working instead. Just get your feeling out.
Allie: I do get my feeling out by singing and working! This is what I wanna do. Just leave me alone and let me work. I love you but I gotta do this right now. I’m sorry.
