Disclaimer: I do not own austin and ally
Ally went home. I visited her at sonic boom after school that day. We had a date, but she didn't feel like going anywhere, so we just stayed in the practice room and watched 'The Wizard Of Oz'. That movie was both our favorites. And also one that doesn't include a death of some kind. We were about half way through the movie when ally got a call from her dad.
'Ring, ring'. Her phone rang twice and she happily answered it with a smile on her face and very enthusiastic 'hello?'. You could tell she obviously forgot about her mom. I didn't though. I knew that that phone call wasn't good the second I heard it ring. It turns out, I was right. I heard the whole conversation, back and forth between ally and her dad.
"Oh, hey, dad!" "Hey, sweety, you sound like you're in a good mood." At that moment ally's smile faded. "Yep! Greaty great great!" Ally lied, I could tell. "So, listen, I'm sorry that I had to leave at this time, and you're probably wondering why." "Yes, I- yes, I am" Ally said stuttering. "Well, honestly, I had to leave because I had to fill out the paper work-" ally's dad started when ally interrupted him. "For what?" Ally asked with a sad expression on her face. Even though she knew her dad couldn't see the expression on her face, he knew because he started to talk more calmly as he said the next sentence. I hated the next sentence, and clearly so did ally. "Your mom's funeral." He said simply. I could almost fully see her lips quivering like she was about to cry. "Ok, so when is it?" She asked, on the verge of tears. "In 3 days. I know I said that I would be back in 3 weeks, but I didn't know how long it would take to fill out the paper work. The place is very out of town." Ally didn't answer, so I took the phone away very slowly so it wouldn't startle her, took my arm from around her got up, and left the practice room so she would be able to calm down as I talked to her dad.
"Hey, Mr. Dawson, it's austin. Listen, ally hasn't really been in a good mood lately, she only was now because we were watching a movie that got her mind completely off her mom." I told him. He sighed. "I'm sorry austin. I really am. I didn't mean for you to get stuck in this situation." "It's fine, since I've been in this situation before, and I, honestly, had nobody to lean on to, it's ok to have somebody who isn't exactly family to help you get through things." "Yeah, can you tell ally that I'm sorry?" "Sure, I can take her to the funeral if you want." "That would be great, thanks." "Where is it?" "At ceremony central." "Oh." "Is something wrong?" "No, it's just, that's just where I had my sister's funeral." "Oh, I'm sorry." "It's ok, I'll be there. With ally of course." "Ok. Tell trish and dez that they can come too. And tell dez not to wear anything colorful, because, you know, it's a funeral." "Will do, bye." "Bye." I hung up, slowly walking back into the practice room. When I got in there, ally was sitting on the piano bench, silently sobbing, the movie off.
"Hey." I said calmly and sweetly walking over to ally, sitting down, and putting my arm around her. She leaned her head on my shoulder, still kinda sobbing. We stayed there for at least 3 minutes motionless and not saying a word.
