I found a boy {Austin Mahone}

When we first started moving around I never ever thought it would be like this. The strange thing for me wasn't the moving, but the people we kept running into. I found a boy a long time ago, and he just kept showing up everywhere. It was kinda scaring me, but he seemed nice. Though he was everywhere! La Vernia, Houston, San Antnio, Los Angeles, New York, London and now here... Rosie what are you getting yourself into?
Meet Rosie Baine, 16 year old young girl originally from Boston, Massachusetts who moves around all the time, but everything changes the day her and her family moves into a huge apartment in Miami, Florida. She sees her new neighbor and suddenly life is changed once again, as she again found him. The boy.

4. Heartbroken

I woke up to the sound of my phone vibrating by my side. I didn’t look at the ID I just answered it and turned around in my bed till I was facing the wall. I groaned into the phone and closed my eyes again.

“Hello?”

“Rosie?”

“Yeah, who is this?”

My voice was low, raspy and sleepy and besides that it wasn’t a secret that I had been crying. Not at all…

“Austin.”

“Hey Austin”

“Are you okay? You seem a bit upset?”

“It’s just been a crazy night.”

“Tell me what’s going on?”

“It’s complicated.”

“I’m an expert on complicated. Do you want me to come over?”

“No it’s alright. Let’s meet up in the morning instead.”

“I’m sorry I can’t…”

“Where are you going?”

“Gym session with my trainer.”

“Oh…”

I had opened my eyes and looked into the wall. There was a hole that I started playing with while I was staring sleepily into the wall.

“What do we do?”

I bit my lip and thought about my dad leaving and telling it to Austin. I’d have to cry in front of him and it annoyed me, but I wanted him to know.

“Can you come up now?”

“Of course. Just give me a second.”

I could hear him get up from where he was and leave his place.

“Thank you Austin.”

“You’re welcome sweetie. I’ll be there in a minute.”

He hung up and I closed my eyes again, covering myself with my sheet. The hate for my dad had started to grow inside of me, and I guess it was because I finally understood what was actually going to happen. He wasn’t going to be here anymore. He’d be living in San Diego with another woman. Or at least that’s what I hoped for him.

I took a deep breath and kept playing with the hole in my wall while hiding away from the world. Why was he doing this to me? Why would he ever do such thing? Wasn’t I good enough for him anymore? Wasn’t mum good enough for him? The adventures we had created together and lived through? Did he really hate it that much?

I heard the front door open and my mum speak. I heard Austin’s voice and a snitch of hope ran through my body. Two pair of feet walked across the floor towards my room, and I knew one would be Austin and hoped for the other to be my mum. There was a knock on my door before it was opened and luckily my mum was the one to appear in the doorway.

“Rosie?”

“Huh?”

“Austin’s here to see you.”

“Just let him in.”

She stepped aside and let him into my room. As soon as the door was closed he lay down beside me and hugged me for a second. He must have known that I needed it, because as soon as I felt his arms around me I broke down. This was the moment where I realized what had been going on out by the dinner table. The way my mum had been over the past time, why she wanted to leave San Diego. This was all why they took me to a place that I loved so much. They had been planning it for a while, while they were just trying to hold it together until they had told me what would happen.

“What’s going on Rosie?”

He whispered into my ear while I still had my back leaned towards him but I turned around as he spoke to me. He was whipping away my tear, while I was trying to hide away from the pain that spread across my chest.

“Rosie, talk to me about it.”

His voice was soft, and it kinda made me relax and want to share this with him. I looked up into his eyes with crystal clear eyes.

“My dad is moving back to San Diego. He’s leaving us. He’s leaving my mum for someone else that he found while we were staying there.”

I shook my head and whispered out the word coward before I looked back up at Austin.

“I’m sorry sweetie, but if he is leaving it’s probably for the best.”

“How can he leave us? I was all he ever wished for. Am I not good enough for him anymore? Not the perfect daughter? I’ve been travelling with him since I was 3 years old, I’ve left friends all over the world and he’s just been taking me away from them. He’s been the one who wanted to see the world, and now that we’re finally a long way on the journey he’s just leaving us behind, abandoning us. He’s so pathetic. I can’t believe he would do something like this to my mother and me!”

“Rosie, we don’t always understand what’s going through people’s heads, but you can’t blame yourself for this. This is not your fault, and it will never be your fault that your parents are splitting up. It’s your father’s choice, and he’s probably doing it because he thinks it’s for the better.”

“But why Austin? Why would he choose something so far away and something that is probably younger and better than my mother?”

“Because that is how some people are.”

“I just never thought he would be the one to do something like this to me. He’s a coward!”

I felt the tears coming back. My heart hurt, and I would need to sit up to make the pain go away. I sat up in the bed and look into the mirror. My hair was a mess… I was a mess. What was going on with me? Miami was supposed to be perfect, yet it had only brought me trouble.

Austin sat up beside me and looked into the mirror with me. He took my hand, just to comfort me, and smiled at me.

“Whatever his choice is it’s his life Rosie, and you can’t change that. You’re gonna be just fine without him. Just like I am without my dad.”

I looked at him. He never spoke about his dad, and we never asked questions why. That was the rule in this awkward friendship. So I guess that if he really meant it like this, maybe it was time for me to actually listen to it.
