You guys are awesome :D It's just an known fact, like really! I love all of you that PM me, or even review! I've been good on updating huh? Well DramaMama01 brought up a good point, which is what I've been going for, so nice job there! Ok, here's a chapter for you guys! Enjoy! :)

The day after, we decided to leave early and go back home. "Austin hurry up!" I was almost done packing while Austin was half done packing and eating whatever else was in the fridge. He rolled his eyes and stomped. "Fine!" He whined. He made his way over to his suitcase and finished packing.

"Ready?" He asked. I nodded and closed the door behind us. I set everything in the car and was about to get inside. "Ally wait." I looked at him and he held out his hand towards me. "Come on, I want to do something before we leave." I take his hand and he leads me to the beach. It was bright, but not insanely bright, so it was a fairly nice weather.

We walked along the shore of the beach barefoot, letting the water tickle out toes and the sand to form around our feet. He grabbed my hand and intertwined our fingers as we walked along the beach in comfortable silence.

"You know, this trip has really taught me something." He turned his head to look at me. "Really? And what's that?" We stopped and sat on the smooth sand. "Not to worry so much." The tips of his mouth started to curve up as he wrapped his arms around me, embracing me in a big hug. "Come on, let's go back home." I take his hand as we walk back to his car.

When we were in his car, we rode in comfortable silence. I guess noone really wanted to talk at the time. So I dozed off to the sound of his radio, and an unfamiliar song playing in my head.

Everybody has a dark side,

Do you love me, can you love mine?(1)

I felt myself being carried somewhere, but at the time I was too tired to even think, but I knew that it was Austin carrying me somewhere. Suddenly I felt a surge of comfort as I as placed onto my bed it was, well I'm guessing it was. I felt him crawl under the covers, wrap his arms around my waist, and kissed my forehead softly as I fell into a deep sleep.

I woke up and Austin was nowhere to be seen. I looked at the time. It was around 6:00 and I was still tired. I stood up and I noticed a note on my desk.


Sorry for ditching you like that, but I had to get home, my mom needed me. I'll call or text you soon okay? Bye!

~Austin xx

I smiled at the note and I grabbed my songbook and a pen. I laid back on my bed and I got to writing the lines that I thought of in the car.

Everybody's got a dark side

Do you love me, Can you love mine?

Dear Songbook/Diary,

Everything's great. Really! I've been doing a lot better with the whole Rachel situation, and Austin and I went away for the weekend. It was really romantic and relaxing. It was really what I needed. Austin's being really sweet right now, and really supportive. I just don't know what to do about the whole situation. I mean Austin keeps telling me that everything's going to be okay, but noone really knows if everything's going to be okay. Maybe things will completely blow up, and I'll like be depressed for the longest time. Or maybe Rachel will never ever find out, until a long time that is. But for right now, I'm just going to relax. I mean whats the worst that can happen right?

Love, Ally xx

Its been a couple months into school now, and nobody's really noticed that Austin and I are a couple. Everytime we kiss or hug or something, we brush it off as if it never really happened. We were going along great. We had an awesome time together, in and out of school. After that trip, everything was so perfect. I was more relaxed, because I knew that there wasn't a huge chance that Austin and I would get caught as a couple. I had to stop worrying about everything so much. Like I said, everything was perfect. That is, until now.

Because that's where everything changed.

We were at school near our lockers. It was the end of sixth period and I was at my locker going to history. Suddenly someone put their hands over my eyes. I rolled my eyes and removed them. I looked behind me and saw none other then Austin. "Hey Ally," He said with a smile. He was leaning to kiss me but I stopped him. He looked rather annoyed.

"Austin not now." He stomped his feet like a little kid. "Oh come on, why not?" I turned back to my locker and continued to put in my books. "Because we're at school. And we're doing so well being a secret couple, and I don't want to ruin that now."

His shoulders dropped and he took a deep breath. He grabbed both of my shoulders and turned me towards him. "Look Ally, no offense or anything, but I'm getting really tired of this. I really don't want to have to be your boyfriend in secrecy you know? I just want to scream out to the world that Ally Dawson's my girlfriend. And I want to be able to show you off whenever I want. After all, you are mine right?" He slung his arm around my shoulders.

I looked up at him and nodded. "That's what I was hoping you'd say. So does this mean that we're not a secret couple anymore? That we can do whatever we want, whenever we want? I mean you shouldn't be this stressed about it remember? We went on the trip for a reason." He said with a small smile. I nodded my head and he picked me up and spun me around. He set me down and looked into my eyes. He had a slight twinkle in his eye which made me smile. He wrapped his arms around my waist and moved his face closer to me. He took his hand and slightly caressed my cheek. He then moved in a little closer and brushed his lips across mine. He smiled slightly and pulled me even closer to him, if that was even possible. Then he let go of my waist and took my face and his hands and pressed his lips to mine.

I felt like everything stopped. It was really quiet and I felt like it was just me and Austin. His arms slowly snaked around my waist and mine around his neck. The kiss was slow and sweet, and most definitely passionate. He definitely went all out for this kiss, he deepened the kiss a few minutes after. He slowly pulled back and smiled really big at me. He took his thumb and traced imaginary lines on my cheek. I smiled back and rested my head on his chest. I was listening to the sound of his fast paced heart beat, and I found it quite soothing.

That's when I heard how quiet it was.

Not quiet as in just me and Austin, I mean quiet as in everyone was staring at us. Everyone in the hallway. And more coming.

Most of them had a shocked expression on their face. Some of them looked confused. Some of them, I couldnt even read. And most of them looked kind of weirded out, like they couldnt believe that he just kissed me. I looked up at Austin who had his arm around my waist. He smiled at me and kissed the top of my head. That's when everyone started to snap back into reality. Their faces weren't as shocked, but they were more of a surprised look. Like they couldnt even believe what just happened. I mean its really not like Austin hasn't kissed anyone in school before, its just the fact that he kissed me, a dorkish nobody, is what really spooked them.

They were all still quiet though. It really kind of scared me. The only face that was smiling was Trish. She was smiling really big and nodded at me. I smiled at her but then dug my face into Austin's chest. He started to stroke my hair and rub my back soothingly.

Soon after the bell rang. Everyone started to whisper and slowly started to disperse. I quickly grabbed most of the things from my locker and shoved them into my backpack. Austin kissed my cheek, "I'll see you later babygirl," and went to his class while I was still at my locker. I shut my locker and started to run off to history when I saw something that probably scared me the most. Any guesses?

Most people'll get this right I'm sure. I watched as her eyes started to form more tears than there were before. Her face was bright red and her sparkling blue eyes were now cloudy. Her face was completely flushed and I barely got a word out before she ran. Ran away from me.

I watched as her perfect straight blonde hair flew as she ran away. I went with my first instinct to run after her, run after my best friend.

But I'm not so sure Rachel's my best friend anymore.

A/N: AHHHHH WOAH. I wrote this in one day. Actually, it was maybe like two or so, but whatever. So did you guys like it? I tried to make it kind of dramatic, but not too dramatic because the more dramatic stuff's coming up later my friend :D OK I NEED IDEAS FOR LATER.

I have the next chapter all written out, but idk what to put for after that. So drop an idea maybe? Dance, Chinese school, and regular school has been absolute hell all together, but I'm doing my best to update :D

Please tell me what you guys think, so drop a review or something so that I can improve :) Thanks guys, I love you all! Xoxox
