Hey guys! So, I've realized that my chapters are really short, and I apologize for it. I try to get up at least 1 chapter a day. It's hard enough with school and stuff. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this chapter, and don't forget to review! I love reading your reviews. Thanks! :)
I looked at him skeptically. I could tell he was nervous so I cracked. "Okay, fine. I'll help you find a place. It'll be easy. Miami has great apartments. I assume you'll be staying in one since it's just temporary, right?" I asked. He nodded. "Yeah. I guess a few months?" He asked a loud. I nodded and leaned my head back on the seat.
"You tired?" Austin asked from beside me. I shook my head in response. "It seems like you are." He stated. I looked at him and sighed. "I'm not tired. Just thinking." I replied truthfully. "About?" He asked curiously. "Nothing important. How long until we land?" I asked. He looked thoughtful before replying. "Maybe around half an hour or so. You're impatient aren't you?" He asked smiling.
"Of course. I want to see my family. I can't wait until Christmas." I replied, already imagining the soon to come holiday. Austin looked down with a sad expression. "What's wrong?" I asked concerned.
He shook his head and smiled. A fake smile, might I add. "You know I wasn't born yesterday, right? I can distinguish the difference between a fake smile and a real smile. Now, what's wrong?" I asked sternly.
He sighed and responded. "I just can't believe this will be my first Christmas alone. I always spend it either with my friends, family, or fans. I don't think I can survive a Christmas alone." He said dramatically. I rolled my eyes and laughed. "You're so dramatic and silly. Listen, if you think it's so bad to be alone, then I'll let you spend it with me. And my family." I added. He looked up with nothing but excitement and gratefulness. "Really? Thanks Ally! You're awesome!" (1)
I laughed and nodded my head. "So I've been told." I replied smirking. He laughed gracefully.
"But seriously Ally, thank you. It means a lot. Especially since we just met." He said matter-of-factly. I nodded my head and smiled. "Well, I feel really comfortable around you for some reason. I'm usually really shy." I said truthfully. He stared at me shocked. "Really? You don't seem shy at all." He said surprised.
I lightly laughed and agreed instantly. "I know. I don't know what my problem is." I said half-smiling. "It's probably just me." He said smirking. "Conceited much?" I asked sarcastically. He obviously doesn't understand the term sarcasm because he shook his head. "I just speak the truth." He retorted. "Alright, if that's what you call the truth." I muttered to myself.
"What was that? I didn't hear you." He said suspiciously. I shook my head innocently. "Nothing. Just talking to myself." I replied smoothly. He eyed me for a second before nodding slowly.
30 minutes later the annoying voice came booming through the intercom again, this time telling us to get off the plane safely. I shook Austin awake, and he fluttered his eyes open and yawned. "What?" He asked sleepily.
"Were here, Austin!" I exclaimed loud enough to wake him up completely. He looked out the window to see that we had in fact landed at the Miami airport. He instantly jumped up in his seat and smiled broadly.
"We're here!" He exclaimed as well. I nodded happily and started to get up to follow the rest of the passengers out. "C'mon Austin!" I said ushering him. "Wait, Ally." He said seriously. I looked back at him with a confused expression. "What is it?" I asked seriously.
"I need you to help me get out of the airport without people noticing me." He said. "Just put your 'disguise' back on." I told him.
"Okay." He put on his sunglasses, hoodie, and cap back on. "Do you think I'll make it out without being recognized." He asked worriedly. I nodded surely. "Definitely. Just stick by me, and you'll be fine. No one will even look at you." I said nonchalantly. "What makes you so sure?" He asked curiously.
We were now out of the plane and walking into the back of the airport.
"I'm just a plain girl, Austin. There's nothing special about me or anything. No one would even think that rockstar Austin Moon would hang with plain ol' me. Duh." I remarked. "Oh." He said with..guilt? No. Why guilt?
We made out way into the left side of the airport. We walked in complete and utter silence. Once we reached the baggage collection point. Austin decided to hold my hand.
My hand felt tingly and numb. I looked up to see him smiling warmly at me. He bent down slowly and whispered in my ear,"If you ask me, I would say that you're way beyond special, Miss Dawson."
