(A/N): Some people said that this story is similar to Little Sister. They are right, it is. I just thought her story was really good and wanted to use a few ideas. If you haven't read Little Sister yet, its by xXDemiFanForeverXx and you really should read it because, in my opinion, I think it's the best Austin and Ally story on this site that I've read so far.
Chapter 3: Looking Good
I opened my eyes. I looked down and noticed that I was still holding hands with Austin. I heard footsteps so I lay back down on my pillow and closed my eyes to pretend I was still asleep.
"What the fuck?" Dez shouted and I opened my eyes. "What is this? What are you two doing?"
Dez walked over to me. Austin opened his eyes. "I told you not to date my sister! How could you?" Dez shouted.
"You never told me you had a sister. I couldn't sleep in your room. You were snoring." Austin looked startled.
"Why are you holding hands then? Dez bellowed.
"We pinkie swore that I wouldn't snore and wake him up." I answered, not wanting Austin to get in trouble.
"Okay fine. I believe you. Just don't do anything more!" Dez glared at us and stomped out of the room.
"So are you going to the beach party today?" I asked, remembering the text that Natalie sent.
"What beach party?" He asked. I jumped up from my bed and handed Austin his cell phone from my purse. He turned it on and saw the text.
Natalie had left three text messages since yesterday. One was about the party, one said, "Why aren't you returning my texts?" and the last one said, "Are you breaking up with me?" I rolled my eyes at the last one. Natalie has always been very dramatic.
Our relationship has been like a movie, but not one of those fun-filled Action movies; it was more like a Drama.
I looked at Ally and thought about texting Natalie back saying, yeah we should break up, but I knew that Ally was my friend's sister and by Dez's reaction of us holding hands, he would kill us if we dated; and also it's wrong to break up with someone over a text.
Ally was sitting on the floor next to me. I looked at her black lace bra peeking through her shirt that she was still wearing from last night. She wondered what I was looking at and looked down too. She saw that her shirt hang down, showing some cleavage and she also saw that I noticed it too. Ally started pulling her shirt up and blushed, looking nervously around the room. Her shirt came back down when she leaned over a little but she didn't pull it up because I looked away.
I stood up and said, "Can I use your bathroom?"
She said "Yeah." And I went inside and closed the door.
Wow. That was so embarrassing. He kept looking at my boobs. Did I wear that outfit all night? Of course I did, I woke up wearing this. If only I'd known that Austin was here, then I would've at least worn a shirt with a higher neckline and different shorts.
I locked my bedroom door and decided to change into something else to avoid further embarrassment. I pulled off my tank top and bra and picked out the first bra I saw - the leopard push-up bra that Trish picked out for me to wear for special occasions. It was one of the few bras I had that actually made my boobs look bigger than they actually were since I wasn't exactly gifted in that area.
I pulled off my shorts and threw them and the rest of my clothes that were on the floor into the laundry chute. I searched for another pair of shorts and a top but there were none left in my drawer.
It was Dez's turn to do laundry and it hasn't been done for almost a month. "Shit." I said softly. "What am I going to wear?"
I heard a flush and the door burst open. I forgot how fast boys could pee.
Austin just stood there staring at me; his eyes were wide and his mouth was open. I wanted to hide but my feet were glued to the spot. I was completely terrified and didn't know what to do.
WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW. I just couldn't help but stare. Ally just looked so…well…good. It wasn't because she was half-naked; it was because I always thought she was beautiful and right now she just looked…extra beautiful.
My eyes wondered up and down her body. I tried to look away but I just couldn't snap out of the trance. Her leopard print bra looked great with her black lace underwear. Her bra pushed up her boobs so that I could see their outline.
I imagined all the things I would do to her if she let me and all the things she would do to me. My mind raced and so did my heart. I shook the thoughts away; knowing it was never going to happen and that it was wrong to even imagine it.
Ally was staring at me and at first I wondered why, but then I saw it in her eyes. Embarrassment. Now I felt so bad for her. She's probably thinking "why is there a guy staring at me, who I barely know, while I'm wearing almost nothing?" She's probably really scared and freaked out.
As much as I wanted to stare at her, like that…all day, I also really liked her and didn't want to make her feel uncomfortable.
I went inside Ally's closet and saw a bunch of robes: red, blue, black, pink, white, and brown. I grabbed the first one I saw. Black silk.
When I reached Ally, I wrapped the robe around her. She smiled weakly. "I'm so sorry. I didn't know you were changing." I looked around the room uneasily.
"It's more my fault than yours. I shouldn't change my clothes when I knew you could've walked out of that bathroom at any second." Ally pushed a stray piece of hair behind her ear.
"I shouldn't have been looking at you…like that. It was rude and I know this is no excuse but I just couldn't help myself. You just have a really nice body." I wish I didn't say that last part. Ally is probably mad at me now. I started to walk towards the door to her room.
"You don't have to leave." Ally whispered. "I'm sure if it was any other guy they would've done a lot more than just stare at me." I made my way back over to Ally and sat on her bed. Ally sat down next to me.
"So, are you going to that beach party with Natalie?" Ally asked.
"Do you think I should?" I replied.
"It could be fun." Ally pulled the robe tighter around her. Then she got up from her position and looked over at the Thermostat in her room. When she sat back down, she took off her robe and threw it to the floor.
She shifted on the bed, trying to find a position where I wouldn't be able to see her so exposed.
"Why did you do that?" I pointed to the robe on the floor.
"It's really hot in here. The heating and air conditioning must be broken. Sometimes it gets really hot and other times its really cold. Since Dez is considered "the adult" here, he is supposed to call someone to fix it, but he's not that responsible. He mostly just parties and gets drunk with friends." Ally looked a little sad and I was going to ask her about her parents but that might be a little personal to her so I decided not to. Besides…I didn't exactly have the perfect family.
She lay back on the bed and stretched her hands into the air as if she where trying to reach for stars. "So are you going to the beach party? I'm only going if you go." I lay back on the bed too and looked up at the ceiling.
"Why do you care if I go?" Ally asked.
"Well, if Natalie acts like her normal drama queen self, then at least I'll still have someone cool to hang out with." I smiled at her.
"Okay, I'll come. I just need to see if my friend, Trish, wants to come too. Can I have my phone back?" Ally smiled at me.
"Sure." I reached into my pocket and handed her the phone. I watched as Ally texted her friend. She was concentrating really hard like she was thinking of exactly what to type.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Austin watching me. Some people might think it's creepy or nosy, but I thought it was nice to know that he was paying attention to me.
When I was done typing my message to Trish, I read it in my mind. "Hey, do u wanna come 2 a kewl beach pardy 2day at 8? " Immediately she responded. "Sure. I'd luv 2 go! Just need 2 $ a new outfit. Wanna come shoppin now?"
I looked over at Austin; he looked at me expectantly. "Well…?" He said. "Is she coming?"
"Yeah but she wants me to go shopping with her." I turned off my phone.
"And…are you going shopping with her?" He asked.
"I guess I should. I do need a new bikini." I turned my phone back on and texted Trish my reply.
When I was finished, I stood up and headed toward the door. "Bye Austin. See you at the party." I waved and disappeared into the hall. Austin ran after me and grabbed my hand.
"Wait Ally…" He said.
"Yeah?" I smiled, thinking he was going to ask me out until I remembered. Natalie.
"Are you going shopping now?" He asked.
"Of course." I responded. Austin pointed at my "outfit" and I realized what he meant. I needed to put on some clothes.
I looked through the dirty laundry, trying to find the cleanest outfit there. I finally chose a sparkly pink top with jean shorts that had rhinestones on the pockets.
"Thanks Austin. That would've been embarrassing."
I found Dez so he could give me a ride to the mall.
When I got there, I saw Trish and greeted her with a hug. We sat down at the food court and looked at the map of the mall, trying to decide which stores would be the best for bikinis'. I wanted to look at Abercrombie, American Eagle, and Hollister. Trish liked those stores too, but she also wanted me to get something sexy so I could get a boyfriend. She always tried to set my up with guys. I wasn't really interested in any of them though; every time Trish pointed out a "good match" for me, all I thought of was Dallas. He basically made me apprehensive to date anyone else because I was afraid my heart would get broken again.
Dallas was the first and only guy I've ever dated; I dated him for eight months. One day I told him my family was going away for spring break to see relatives, but then our flight somehow got cancelled so we just stayed home. The next day, Trish and I went to the mall and we saw Dallas kissing another girl. She was WAY hotter than me. She had long golden-blonde hair, sky blue eyes, and a perfect model-like body. I was surprised Dallas was even still with me (I have the looks of a basic, boring average girl) when he could get a girl like that. Even when he broke up with me, it still hurt, even though I saw it coming. After that, his parents found out and were so ashamed and afraid that people would find out and give their family a bad name so they moved to California. Now Dallas can kiss all the sun-kissed, ultra-thin, big-busted girls he wants.
Four hours, twelve stores, and 100 swimsuits later, Trish and I finally found the perfect swimsuits.
I really wanted Trish to wear a bikini too so I didn't look like a slut as much, especially since Trish picked out my bikini, but Trish said she didn't have the right body to wear a bikini.
I really didn't want to wear it to the beach party; I mean it was seriously tiny. I really don't know what Trish was thinking. In a way I wanted to look hot, but since I have stage fright, I really don't want that kind of attention. If only there was some way I could talk her out of making me wear it. But Trish did say it would help me get rid of my stage fright by looking confident. Still…I don't know…
It was from Victoria's Secret (of course, Trish) and had leopard print and golden chain pictures on it. There was a black ribbon tied to one of the straps, charms dangling from the bikini bottom, and a golden chain holding my bikini top together (which made me a little nervous in case it came untied, but Trish insisted).
Trish got a low-cut pink and white polka dot tankini, which may sound like something a little girl would wear but it was actually very mature looking.
We stopped in a few other stores to get sandals. Along the way Trish was telling me about the stores that were her previous jobs; Gymboree (she got fired for yelling at a little boy who stuck a lollypop in her hair), Hershey's Ice Cream (she got fired for turning up the temperature on the thermostat, accidentally, and melting the ice cream), M.A.C Makeup (she got fired for spending more time giving herself a make-over than helping the customers). There were many other jobs she had but I just stopped listening since I already knew that every job she used to have ended with her getting fired.
Trish and I got matching golden sandals that had sparkly straps and a chain that would go between our toes. Trish told me that I couldn't take the bikini back now since the sandals match it so perfectly.
I glanced at my watch; then did a double take. It was 8:23. This party started at 8:00. "Oh shit! We're late!" I stomped my foot hard.
Trish looked at me and shrugged. "Yeah, so? It's better to be late. Fashionably late that is." She smiled and strutted off towards the make-up counter.
"Come on Trish. We are already fashionably late. If we wait any longer the party will be almost over." I never liked to be late: not with events, not with homework, not with anything.
I started walking toward the exit but Trish pulled me back. "Is there a certain reason why you're rushing to get to the party? Is there a special someone?" A small grin started to creep on her face.
"No, of course not!" I blushed and looked over at the perfume. "Hey is that the new Katy Perry perfume?" I tried to walk over so I could know for sure, but Trish pulled me back.
"Come on Ally. I've known you for a long time and whenever you're trying to hide something you change the subject. Now spill." I still didn't want to look her in the eye. I also didn't know if I wanted to tell her who I liked because then she'd try to set me up with him.
A huge grin spread across Trish's face and her eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas. Unfortunately, she could always tell when I was lying; I always avoided eye contact and changed the subject.
"I'm your best friend. You can trust me; I won't tell anyone." She pleaded. I was about to say his name, when Trish started to approach the M.A.C Make-up counter. Thankfully she got distracted easily.
"I have an idea. We can act like we are buying make-up here and then someone will give us a make-over to test it out. That way whoever you like will see you looking hot and glamorous." She whispered, picking up a Sheen Supreme Lip-glass in Asian Butterfly, then put it back.
"I don't know…that sounds wrong. We should at least buy one thing." I looked around to make sure no one heard us.
"It's not against the law. And besides you will look irresistible to every guy at the party. I mean come on, if you're pretty without make-up, you will be beautiful with it; also you get to try something new."
"Fine." I rolled my eyes and sighed. There was no use in arguing with Trish because eventually I always gave in to what she wanted. Also...I did wanna look my best, even it was just for one night.
I followed her over to the eye shadow section and looked through all the choices until I spotted one I liked; it was a Pigment eye shadow in Old Gold.
We picked out a handful of make-up and brought it to a salesgirl. "Welcome to M.A.C, how may I help you?", the girl sing-songed cheerfully. I looked at her nametag; it said her name is Kate.
"We wanna test out this makeup to see if it looks good before we buy it." Trish said while setting down all her makeup on the table.
"Okay, sit here." Kate pointed to two identical black leather chairs in front of two identical square mirrors. We did as we were told.
Kate quickly examined each of our items to make sure they were testers. They all were so she called another salesgirl over to do Trish's makeup, while Kate got started on mine. A petite girl with short black hair and smoky eyes ran over to Trish; her nametag said Jenny.
When Kate did my lips it tickled a little. I tried not to laugh (I was really ticklish) and thankfully I didn't. When Kate and Jenny were done with our makeovers, Trish and I opened our eyes (we always closed our eyes whenever we got makeovers so we'd be surprised at the finished product) and looked open-mouthed at our reflections.
"So do you girls like it?" Kate asked. Trish and I nodded at the same time. I looked beautiful, glamorous, gorgeous and usually I didn't think I was really that pretty, but tonight...wow. I've never looked better.
Trish dragged me away from my reflection and toward the store's exit.
I felt really bad for not buying anything, especially since Kate was so nice...and there was the fact that I owed her for making me look so great... My guilt took over so I gave Kate $20. When I gave her the money she smiled and I could see her perfectly whitened teeth.
She reminded me a lot of that girl I saw Dallas kissing. They both have golden-blonde hair, are skinny, and have blue eyes. It's probably just a coincidence though. I mean it couldn't be the same person; that would just be too weird to be real.
As I walked out of the M.A.C store with Trish, I wrote down (in the Notes Section of my phone) all the names of all the makeup that I had on so I could buy them next time I came to the mall and had more money. I mean seriously I could only imagine looking this good everyday. That would be like a dream come true.
-Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation 1.5 (I was really pale)
-Studio Careblend/Pressed powder in light (again, pale)
-Powder Blush in Dollymix
-Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed
-Eye Shadow in Pink Venus (put on first)
-Eye Shadow Pigment in Old Gold (put on top of Pink Venus, lightly)
-Fluidline Eyeliner in Black Track
-Zoom Waterfast Lash Mascara
-Dazzleglass Lip-gloss in Like Venus
As we passed by Belk, I found the perfume section and took a few quick spritzes of Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. There, I thought, now the look is complete and I'm ready to party. I almost forgot about that...the party.
I turned on my phone; the time read 8:57. I grabbed Trish's arm and pushed her out of the mall. This will be a night I'm going to remember for the rest of my life, I thought. And as it turned out later, this night ended up being more memorable than I had hoped.
(A/N): Please review! I really love to get them! This chapter was kind of long but I really hoped you liked it!
