Now or Never...

Summary: Because she was afraid of falling for her confident best friend and he was afraid of hurting his shy songwriter. A story about two polar opposites who are perfect for each other, but will their past effect their future?


On with the story!

Austin Moon was always known as the loud, outgoing, life of the party person. He was every girls dream boy in Miami High and the guys envyed him. Although he made it hard to hate him since he was a sweetheart and just all around nice guy. Not only was he a nice guy but also a very handsome one too. He had the surfer look, blonde, tan, tall, and built! Chocolate browns eyes that can make any girl melt in his arms. He didnt make it any easier when he winked at girls just to see them squeal, he was sort of a player at times. His smile was contagious, once he smiled people cant help but smile with him. He wasnt into sports that much but he was pretty good at them. His main passion was singing, most people would laugh at a boy hating sports and wanting to sing but with Austin it was different.

Even with him being the most popular boy in school, Austin would usually be seen with his 3 best friends. Dez whos been there since childhood and also the wacky friend who made anything fun. He was kind like Austin side kick but man did he know how to have fun. Then you have Trish whos Austin sarcastic friend who, despite her size, can scare away anyone. She didnt get along with Dez very well but they had this connection with each other that not even Austin has with Dez. But Austin had this connection with his shy sensitive adorable best friend, partner and songwriter, Ally.

Ally was nothing near popular although many girls envyed her because she gets to spend every minute with Austin. Like Austin, it was hard for anyone to hate her. She was smart and a goodie goodie but funny when she wants to be. Most people would think with her being a "nerd" that she would have the glasses and braces, but Ally was far off from the nerdy look. In fact she was nominated for 'Class Best Dressed' and 'Class Hottie' for her 8th grade mock elections but declined both do to the fact that they presented the winners in front of the whole school and she has horrible stage fright!
Ally's an average height brunette with silky shoulder length hair and big brown eyes that make you wanna awe everytime you looked in them and a smile that can warm even the coldest heart. She had a figure and thats why most guys were interested but Ally new better than having her heart broken...again. Although even with her rough past, Ally still masks all her pain with a smile that no one could ever guess was fake.

Everyday after school Austin would meet up with Ally at her dads music store, where she worked and where they usually practiced. But on a particular day Austin realized he didnt see his favorite brunette scribbling away in her secret book behind the counter. The store was empty expect for 2 or 3 customers but Austin can hear the piano faintly
playing from the practice room. He jogged up the stairs to see Ally passionately playing a song he hasnt heard...

Allys Song:

Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were, but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today, ooh, ooh

I would hold you in my arms, I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done, forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do to hear your voice again
Sometimes I wanna call you but I know you won't be there

Oh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you

Some days I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide 'cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this, ooh

Would you tell me I was wrong? Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me? Are you proud of who I am?
There's nothing I wouldn't do to have just one more chance
To look into your eyes and see you looking back

Oh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, oh

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I've missed you
Since you've been away

Oh, it's dangerous
It's so out of line
To try and turn back time

I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself
By hurting you

With that Ally slowly turns around to leave the practice room but notice Austin has been watching her.
Ally: "Austin!" She says a little shocked and embarrassed. "How long have you been there?" quickly wiping any tears left on her cheeks so Austin wouldnt see, but he could tell she was because her eyes were red and puffy.
Austin: "Since you started singing..." he paused for awhile to see if she was going to say anything but then quickly said "Ally that song is amazing but depressing"
Ally: "Dont worry Austin I didnt write for you to sing" she said trying to not look directly in his eyes.
Austin: "I just hope it not about me!" he then held her shoulders softly and changed the tone in his voice, "Ally if theirs something wrong you can always come to me."
Ally: "theirs nothing wrong, im jsut stressed with school work and writing you a new song, im fine" she faked a smile and walked away but with Ally faking smiles came easy since shes use to them.

Austin knew Ally better then she thought he did and new that his shy songwriter was hiding something that was slowly breaking her from the inside out. It was bothering Austin that he didnt know what it was but also he didnt know how to help...
