Ally Abdul: Part One

From the time that she was a child, Alyssa “Ally” Abdul had three loves in life: music, baseball, and American Idol. At age 10, she was thrown into the foster system when her best friend found out that she was being abused by an “Uncle John”, who had adopted her short after birth. A year after that, she was moved from the foster system in San Diego where she has grown up, to Los Angeles. Even though she is closer to reaching her goal of being a musician, she is forced to start middle school with none of her childhood friends.



FRIDAY MAY 16, 2008

Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul were sitting on the couch in the American Idol Judges mansion. The place was silent except for the annoying sound of the commercials on the TV in the background. Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest were out doing something, letting Simon and Paula spend time together before Simon had to leave for London, England the next day. He would, however, be returning the following Tuesday for the American Idol Season 7 performances. It was down to the final two: David Cook and David Archuleta.

Simon and Paula have a very complex relationship. One second they will hate each other, and the next second they will be kissing each other. Over the years they have come to respect each other and have become best friends. Paula had quit over 5 times on her first day on the show because of Simon. But now they wouldn't do the show without each other on it with them.

"I don't want you to go," Paula said, leaning up against Simon. He put his arm around her.

"It's only for a couple days, Pawler," he replied to the small woman.

"I know," she sighed. "It's just that you just came back and now you have to leave again,"

"You miss me," Simon taunted.

"Do not!" she protested.

"You know that you do," Simon replied. "You're gonna miss me. Just admit it. You're going to miss old Simey,"

"Fine! I'll miss you. Are you happy now?"

"Yes," he said, "Yes I am."

"Of course you are," said Paula. They turned their attention back to the TV.

"So what are you gonna do while I'm gone?" Simon asked Paula.

"Uhh," Paula said. She knew what she was going to do. She just doesn't know if she wants to tell Simon about it yet. After all, getting a child is a big decision.

"You're hiding something from me," he said. Paula knew that he could read her like a book, and she could read him right back. She also knew that if she didn't tell him the truth right now that he would annoy her all night until he left or until she gave in and told him.

"I am going to adopt a kid. I've been looking in to it a lot and I finally decided to do this. I've made an appointment for Friday at the agency five minutes away," Paula finally stated.

"I… I don't really know how to respond to that," Simon replied.

"You don't have to say anything, Simon," Paula replied. "I'm just telling you what I am going to do,"

"How long have you been planning all of this?" He asked her.

"A couple of months," she replied, shrugging it off.

"A couple of months!" Simon exclaimed. "And you are just telling me this now?"

"Yes," Paula said to him. Simon sighed and ran his hand through his hair. "What?" she asked.

"Nothing. I guess I am just shocked and all," he replied.

"Well, I am going to do this. You know how bad I want a kid," She said to him.

"You're right. I do know how much you want a kid." He replied. "I just wish that you would have told me,"

"I'm sorry Simon," she said. "I wanted to tell you. I really did. I just didn't know how you would take it,"

"Well for what my opinion is worth, I think that you will make a great mother," he replied, hugging her.

"Whoa! What is going on in here?" Ryan Seacrest said, walking in to the room with Randy Jackson, seeing two of his best friends hugging.

"Wouldn't you like to know Seaturd," Simon said, breaking the hug that he was in with Paula.

"Simon please stop calling Ryan names. It's not very nice," Paula said.

"Haven't you heard? I'm not a very nice person." Simon responded.

"Come on dawgs, we got dinner," Randy said. Simon and Paula got up off of the couch and went to go and eat dinner with Randy and Ryan.

The four co-workers were now eating dinner. No one was saying anything. Which was very unusual for the four of them.

"Okay, will someone say something?" Ryan asked. It was too silent for him. Usually Simon would be making fun of him and Randy and Paula would be telling him to cut it out. But now, nothing. No one was saying a word.

"Paula is going to adopt a kid," Simon said.

"SIMON!" Paula yelled. "That was private!"

"Well what do you think that you were going to do? Hide him or her… well actually in this mansion, it is probably possible," Simon replied to Paula.

"Whoa, back up dude. A kid?" Randy asked Paula.

"Yes. I want a kid. I have an appointment at the adoption agency tomorrow at 12." Paula replied to the guys.

"Wow," Ryan said.

"What?" she replied.

"Nothing," he replied.

"Well, we have a meeting with Nigel and Fuller in an hour," Randy said. "He said that it is important,"

"Yeah," Ryan agreed. "So we better get moving."

Ryan, Simon, Paula, and Randy were now in the conference room at the American Idol Theater.

"So what is so important that this couldn't wait until I came back?" Simon asked Nigel and Fuller.

"Well, you know how we were going to add another judge for the next season but decided against it?" Nigel asked. "Well, we changed our minds again. You guys are getting a forth judge. She will be here tomorrow. Her name is Kara DioGuardi."

"Cool! We're getting another judge!" Ryan exclaimed. "Is she hot?"

"Ryan!" Paula exclaimed.

"What? It was just a question," he responded.

"Yeah, so that is all," Fuller said.

"Paula is getting a kid!" Simon shouted.

"Why don't you just go and announce it on TV?" Paula asked. "You already told everybody else!"

"Good idea," he said, pulling out his cell phone.

"Simon!" Paula grumbled, lunging for his cell phone.

"Kidding," he replied, putting his cell phone back in his pocket.

"A kid, huh?" Nigel asked the judge.

"Yes," Paula replied.

"When?" Fuller asked this time.

"Tomorrow I am going to the adoption agency. I don't know when exactly, though." Paula responded.

"Well okay then." Nigel said.

"Anyways, back to business. In a couple of month you guys start auditions again here in California. You will be in San Francisco the first day," Fuller said, handing each of them schedules. “We will go over this more after the finale next Wednesday.”

"You will be stopping in seven different cities this year. Same process as last year and every other year," Nigel told the group.

"Kara will be here sometime next week and moving in to the mansion with the rest of you so I expect for you all to treat her with respect," Fuller added.

"So you can all go now. I know that you all have other things to do and all," Nigel said, dismissing the group.

"Are you gonna get a boy or a girl?" Simon asked Paula at the airport the next morning. He was about to leave for London and she was there saying goodbye.

"I don't know yet. I'll call you though," she replied.

"Okay," he replied. "I just wish I didn't have to leave right now,"

"I know," answered Paula.

"And I will call you as soon as I land, okay Pawler?" asked Simon.


He hugged her goodbye before getting on the plane.
