Lilly: Did anyone else scream when Austin and Ally broke up after they broke up Rocky and Logan? Everyone in the household got scared because of us xP Anyways, I'm Lilly if you don't know me.

Ally's POV

It's been a month since Austin and I broke up. Nobody leaves me alone. NOBODY! Like seriously people, it's been a month. We're still friends.

"You want something from the store, Ally?" my mom asked me as she grabbed her purse. I was behind the register, giving a customer a receipt.

"I'm fine," I told her," I need to finish this song."

"Then why don't you go upstairs?" Trish asked me.

"Because then that would be leaving you in charge of the store," I said.

"Leave me in charge then, Ally," Dez said with a hyper voice and then got serious and put his hand his chest, "I swear for my Aunt Ruth, the handsome woman, I will not fail you."

"No," I told him.

"Awe," Dez's shoulders slumped down a bit," anyways, I have to feed my pet giraffe."

"You have a pet giraffe?" I asked him. He nodded. "Where'd you get it?"

"Buy a giraffe dot com," Dez said it like it was the most normal thing in the world. He shrugged and walked out. (Star: I want a giraffe. Lilly: Well too bad! Star: -_-)

"He's so weird," Trish rolled her eyes and then continued to pay attention to her magazine. I looked up and noticed Mom was gone. Must've left for the store. "So how have you been?"

"I've been better."

"Still miss Austin?"

"It's for the best, Trish. It would have just jeopardized Austin's entire career."

"Well, I respect your guy's decision. Though I think Dez bought that giraffe because of his terrible "Team Ally goes un-canon" depression that has brought down his usual cheerful mood."

"Stop making me feel guilty!"

"Well he is pretty sad."

"Are you worried about Dez?"

"Whaaaaat? No."


"Theirs is nothing you can do to prove that."

"Fine then, I'll get it out of you sooner or later."

I was closing up the shop when, I saw someone I haven't seen in a while.

"D-Dallas?" I blinked to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

"Hey Ally," Dallas shyly said," sorry I didn't come earlier. I was filling out an application for the cell phone accessory cart."

"You're going to be working here again?" I gulped," That's awesome!"

"Yeah, now we could see each other more. I have to get going. Bye Ally."

"Bye." I went upstairs into the music room. I needed to work on this song. Is it me? Or does Dallas look cuter than last time? Well, it has been a couple of months. The thing is, I just got out of my relationship with Austin. Wouldn't going out with Dallas be… weird? I dunno.

"Hey, Ally!" Austin greeted me with his cheery voice," ready to work on that song?"

"Sure," I said and scooted over on the piano bench, so he could sit down next to me.

"Let's write… a song!"

"Nah, I thought we were going to write a cheeseburger."

"Silly Ally, you can't write a cheeseburger. Unless you write the recipe then… were you talking about a recipe?"

"I was being sarcastic, Austin."

"Ohh. It's so much clearer now."

"I have some lyrics written down in my book."

"Let's hear em'."

"The walls are opening
I can finally breathe again
I finally noticed
You were in front of me all along
The rain has washed me clean
I'm feeling you on my skin
I finally let you in
Feels like I'm home in your arms."

"That. Was. Awesome!"

"Everything is awesome to you. I have a long way to go, but we can finish half of the song tonight."

"What about the whole song?"

"Then we'd have to sleep here."

"I can do that."

"I have to go home."

"You know, Als. I've never been to your house. Nobody has."

"I know. Not even Trish. It's just that I don't really like taking people to my house."


"Let's just work on the hou- I mean song, okay?"



"Is your father so cheap, you live in a motel?" I burst out laughing.

"No, what makes you think that? You're funny, Moon."

"I'm curious. Like those monkeys your mom lived with for a year."

"Those were apes."

"Ooh! The book seems so much clearer now." I laughed at him, and we continued the song.

"OMM! Ally, guess what!" Trish came in the shop in a hurry. I yawned before I answered her. Austin and I ended up falling asleep on the piano. Hey, at least we finished the song.

"What?" I asked her groggily.

"Dallas is back in the mall!"

"Oh, I know. I talked to him yesterday."

"Maybe you have another shot with him."

"But I just broke up with Austin, that would be… weird."

"It's been over a month. Get over him. Let me tell you about this month's Cheetah Bea-"

"No, Trish. I'm not going to take advice from a corny magazine survey."

"Awe," she pouted and checked her watch," oh oh. I'm an hour late for work… I'm going to go get brunch. See you."

I was going out to get a soda since Dad was taking over the shop. I sat down on a table. Well, technically I sat on the chair. Because sitting on the tables would be- YOU GET MY POINT! You know that noise you make when you finish a soda through a straw but you keep sipping? It sounds prruhhurbuhr and yeah. Well, I was making that noise.

"Hey Ally," Dallas greeted me and sat down in front of me. I kept making that purpur straw noise while staring at him. "Ally? Are you here?"

"Uh-huh," I nodded and kept making the purpur straw noise.

"Are you sure?" he laughed a little," You look like you're in another planet." I snapped out of it.

"Yeah," I said and sat up straight," I'm here. What's up?"

"I'm in lunch," he said," I thought I'd drop bye to say hey."

"That's cool," I said and got lost in his deep brown eyes.

"I was wondering if you wanted to go on a da-" Dallas got interrupted by Austin who sat on the third chair that was in between us.

"Hello," Austin said and put his face close to Dallas' face," what are you doing here"

"I work at the cell phone accessory cart, again," Dallas said and he laid back in his chair as close as he can.

"Then scram," Austin said. Dallas quickly got up and left.

"Austin," I said and hid my face in my hands," what was that about?"

"I don't know," Austin said and took a deep breath," I don't want you near other guys I guess."

"What about Dez."

"Dez doesn't even know what love means."

"Does love even have a meaning?"

"Huh? I don't know. Maybe you don't know the meaning, you feel it."

"Yeah… Austin! Don't change the subject on me. It's not like we're dating. We're just friends."

"I know. I'm sorry. It won't ever happen again, I swear for Dez's handsome aunt Ruth."

"Okay, good. I gotta go. See you." I gave Austin a quick kiss on the cheek and went back to the store.

Austin's POV

I feel so incredibly stupid right now! Argh! Why the heck did I do that? Jealousy? That's most likely. But if I ever got back with Ally, things would be weird like the last time. I think I need some pancakes. I got my phone and called Dez.

"Hello?" Dez answered.

"Hey, want to go to Melody's Diner with me?" I asked him.

"Sure. I'll be there in five. No Eunice! Don't eat the grandfather clock! " I walked there and sat down hearing music.

"Heey, can I take your order. Please excuse the nasty odor, a customer puuked," a voice that only belonged to one person I knew sang.

"Cassidy?" I looked at her in disbelief. She looked exactly the same from last time… a bit cuter too.

"Hi, Austin," she stopped singing and greeted me with her winning smile," I haven't seen you in a while."

"I know," I smiled at her," you still owe me that date."

"Didn't you just break up with Ally?"

"A month ago."

"Really? I just got back from L.A last week, they announced your breakup as official last week."

"Guess they're off. Because I'm pretty sure I've been single and ready to mingle in a month."

"Oh wow, Blondie."

"You still owe me the date."

"Fine, you win. Some other time, I'm working right now."


"You're such a little kid."

I deepened my voice," I mean, yeah okay. Cool." Dez came in.

"What's up, buddy?" Dez greeted me as Cassidy was attending some other customers.

"I just got a date with Cassidy."

"Just remember. You and Ally are the cause of my "Team Ally un-canon" depression."

Oh no, not this depression session again.

1 hour later…

"Just remember, Austin," Dez said as he wiped his real tears away slowly and dramatically," that those 500 dollar shirts are just all over my room to remind me that my teenage fantasies will die. No, they are dead."

"Here's some onion rings and a milkshake," Cassidy sang," not forgetting the potato salad with your coke."

"Thanks," I told her with a grin.

"Why's he crying?" Cassidy asked me.

"Get out of here!" Dez cried louder," You're making it worse."

"Sorry about him," I mouthed to Cassidy. She just awkwardly shrugged and smiled to me and went to another table. Am I seriously going to date Cassidy? Well it's just a date. Ally is moving on with Dallas, and I can totally forget her. Ally can be with Dallas… hugging… holding hands… dancing… okay not that part… also kissing. I think I just cringed. Ally kissing Dallas? Another boy? Whaaat? I can totally take that.

Star: Done! This is my first Austin & Ally story. Every time I write a new story for a new theme, I feel weird. I'll be adjusted by chappie 3 or so. Sorry for mistakes. I'm VERY lazy. Anyways, review, fave, follow, I don't give a turkey. If you like Shake it Up or Jessie, go check out my other stories.
