This is what you've all been waiting for... right? :D

Summers over, and tomorrow is my first day at school. Austin and I have been inseparable since the day he showed up in my room. My dad absolutely loves him, but I mean really, who wouldn't love Austin Moon?

My dad has also been with Sally more and more, which means he hasn't been home much. But I don't mind now, because he allows Austin to come over and knows that he will leave when he is supposed to. And I don't mind being alone because nothing freaky happens. Life couldn't be better. Nothing could go wrong…right?

It's about 6:00 P.M. so I decide to pack my backpack for tomorrow. I put in my empty notebooks, my new sharpened pencil, and some extra erasers. I'm not really nervous about starting at a new school because for one, it's so small, and second I have Austin. So I know everything will be okay.

His leg has gotten so much better, but he has a scar there now. My ribs are feeling better, but they will start to hurt if I run or anything like that, which is going to suck, because I have gym class and I can't get a note from my dad to get out of it. Because he still doesn't know what happened, and I'd love to keep it that way.

My cell phone goes off and it's Trish. I've still been missing her a lot, "Hey Trish." I answer.

"What's up?" She says. "Packing my backpack for school tomorrow, what are you doing?" I ask.

"I'm on break at work." She says.

I laugh, "Where you working now?"

"Pirate Franks Fish Fry." She says, in a really cheesy pirate accent.

"Oh wow…" I say.

"Yeah, it's terrible. I have to wear an eye patch and everything." She says.

"Oh wow, I'm so sorry." I say, trying to hold back a giggle imagining how Trish must look right now.

"BREAKS OVER!" I hear someone yell in the background. "Well I have to go now. Bye!" Trish says and hangs up.

I throw my phone on the bed and finish putting my stuff together, when there's a knock on my bedroom door.

"Come in." I say.

It's my dad, I'm surprised he's actually home, "Hey dad." I say.

"Hello. Getting ready for tomorrow?" He asks, sitting down on my bed.

"Yeah." I say. Wondering what he wants, "Are you nervous?" He asks.

"No, because the schools pretty small and I have Austin." I say.

He smiles, "That's good. I'm going to go to Sally's for a while, will you be okay?" He asks.

"Always am." I reply.


It's the morning, and I'm getting ready for school. I wish Trish was here to help me out with my outfit. It's what we did every first day of a new school year since we met. She'd help pick out my outfit and I'd help pick out hers, and then we'd walk to school together.

But I suck it up and put on a red dress, add a vest and a cute belt. Austin is going to meet me at my house and we're going to walk to school together. So I wait on the porch until he arrives.

He's wearing a blue plaid button shirt, which is unbuttoned, with sleeves rolled up to his elbows, and a white v-neck shirt underneath. With ripped jeans and awesome blue sneakers. I love the way he dresses. He walks up onto the porch, "Hey Ally." He says with a smile. I walk over to him and he kisses me softly on the lips.

"Hello." I say with a smile.

"You ready?" He asks, grabbing my hand.

"I'm ready."

Unfortunately, Austin and I only have lunch together. I actually have more classes with Dez, so at least I'll know someone. My first class of the day is Math. Which I hate, it's the only class I have with no one I know. So I become a little bit nervous when I walk in. The teacher makes me stand next to her while she waits for the classroom to calm down.

"Everyone, we have a new student this year!" Say's the teacher. Her name is Mrs. Monroe. Of course, this school is so small that they would have to make a big deal out of me being new.

The whole class just stares at me, "This is Ally Dawson, and she's from Miami!"

A few boys and one girl laugh, and a few others continue to stare. The rest are board of me already and start doodling in their note books.

"You may sit now." Mrs. Monroe says.

I take a seat in the third row near the back; I sit down and open my notebook, trying to ignore all of the unfamiliar faces. One girl in particular keeps staring at me, and it's kind of bothering me. If I wasn't so shy I'd ask her what her problem was but I really don't feel like making any 'friends' today.

When that dreadful class is finally over, I have gym next. Which I'm also not looking forward to, but at least Dez can keep me company. And he does, because when I enter the gym from the girl's locker room he comes up to me, "Hey Ally! How do you like your first day so far?" He asks.

"It's been okay. I wish I had more classes with Austin though." I say.

Gym wasn't as bad as I thought, maybe that's because it was just the first day, but my ribs did ache a little when I went to my next class, which was science, which I also had with Dez. If only Austin and Dez switched schedules.

Finally its lunch time, I've been waiting for this all day. Not because I'm hungry, but because I want to be with Austin. He finds me immediately and brings me to a table with him, Dez and another boy and girl I've never seen before.

"Ally, this is Susie and Kendall. Susie, Kendall, this is Ally. My girlfriend I told you about." He says with a huge confident smile.

"Hey!" they both say nicely.

"Hello." I say shyly.

Austin asks me about my classes and I ask him about his. I don't want lunch to end because then I have to deal with the rest of my day without him. When the bell rings, I moan, "Great." I say.

"I know. Miss you already." He says, he kisses me quickly and goes to his next class. I notice Susie in my next class, biology. She asks me to sit next to her at her desk, and I do. She seems really nice.

"So you and Austin are adorable!" She says happily.

"Thank you. Are you and Kendall together?" I ask her.

Her eyes turn sad, "Not yet! Well no. I wish, I mean. I don't know." She says.

I laugh, "I know how you feel, I felt that way with Austin too, before we got together. I bet you and Kendall will be together before you know it." I smile at her. She smiles back, "Thanks." She says.

I'm at my locker, waiting for school to be out in a few moments, when that red headed girl walks by, she gives me a really odd look and whispers something to her friend she's walking with. I look away, into my locker, trying to ignore her. Then I feel someone's arms wrap around my waist. I jump a little bit and turn around.

"Did I scare you?" Austin asks.

"What? Me? No." I say, but he knows me better.

He laughs, and the bell rings, "Let's leave." He says.
