My Heart's Made Up On You
Hey readers! So I watched the new music video for R5, "Heart Made Up On You"...LOVED IT!...and got inspired to write a short story about Austin and Ally getting caught up in a similar situation.
I don't own Austin and Ally, R5, or their music videos or music, though I wish I did LOL, but please enjoy and let me know what you think!
So sit back, relax, and enjoy Heart Made Up On You
"Ally, what the heck is going on? You weren't at school, you're not at work, and I haven't seen you all day. Give me a call please?" Austin told her voicemail desperately for the 5th time that day before hanging up.
"No answer?" Trish asked, walking over from her pacing.
Austin just shook his head.
"Ally's never done anything like this before...I'm really worried." Austin told her as he sat on the counter.
"Worried about what?" a familiar honey voice asked.
"Ally!" they both shouted as they saw her walk in.
Austin rushed over and engulfed her in a hug, relieved she was safe.
After he released her from the hug, she got to work.
"Hey guys, what's up?" she asked as she walked behind the counter.
"Uh...you tell me, you didn't show up for school today and this is the first we've heard from you all day even though I've been calling and texting you ALL DAY!" Austin inquired.
"Sorry I had a...family thing I couldn't get out of. Same thing tomorrow." Ally said as she looked away and busied herself with work.
Austin looked back at Trish, confused. Being her friend for years, they could always tell when she was lying.
When she went into the stock room Trish took the opportunity to talk to Austin.
"She's hiding something, I wonder what it is." Trish told him.
"Let me talk to her tonight when we're closing up shop, I'll find out." Austin assured her.
Trish nodded and headed to her job at Shredders.
Later that evening Ally locked the doors while Austin put the register in Lester's office and locked his door.
When they were done Austin came over and wrapped his arms around Ally's waist.
Ally smiled and got on her tiptoes to kiss him, but Austin pulled back slightly.
"So you wanna tell me where you really were today?" he asked.
"I told you, I had a family thing I couldn't get out of." she told him, avoiding eye contact.
"Yeah, I believe it involves your family, but I think there's more to it then you're telling me." Austin said, gently prodding her.
Ally looked down, scared to say anything.
"I...I can't say anything about it." Ally said, the fear in her voice.
"Ally, do I need to remind you anything you need, you can come to me? Those were never just lyrics to a song to me." Austin reminded her.
Ally nodded, not sure about what she was about to do.
"It's my uncle...he's a jewel thief and primarily lives in California, but the police caught on to his scent there so he left and came here to Miami a few years ago. He's been hiding out in our basement but the other day the police showed up at our doorstep, asking about him. My dad got them to leave by my uncle wants to leave, get out of town before they realize he's here." Ally explained.
"So...you're worried because he's leaving?" Austin asked when Ally paused.
"No, I'm glad he's leaving, he scares me but..." Ally paused again, knowing the more he knew, the more dangerous this would be.
"But what Ally? Tell me." Austin encouraged her.
"He needs money to get out of here. Big money. And he's planning on pulling a heist at the Miami Sunshine Jewels tomorrow to get some big items to get some cash. He wants me and my band to pull a Flash Concert out in the streets tomorrow during his heist so no one will suspect what's going on. I refused at first...but he told me if I didn't go along he would hurt you, Trish and Dez." Ally said, sadness obvious in her voice.
"Ally...this is crazy! You need to call the cops on him...now!" Austin told her.
"I can't! If I do he can have a hitman take us all out before we would know what was going on. Austin, I HAVE to do this." she told him.
Austin took a moment to process the information.
His mind and his heart were fighting.
"Austin, stay out of it, you don't need the trouble.""Yeah, but this is the love of your life, don't you want to make sure she is safe, that this works so you don't have to deal with it again?""But he could go to jail!""Come on, I thought since you're in his brain you would know...He's too smart to let that happen!"
"Both of you be quiet!" Austin suddenly shouted.
"Both of who Austin?" Ally asked, confused.
"No one." Austin said, walking towards her.
"You know, if ONE performer would distract a crowd, imagine how much better TWO would be." he told her.
"What do you mean?" she asked, worried what he was thinking.
"I'm going to perform with you tomorrow, that way I can make sure you're safe." Austin told her.
"You can't, it's during school hours and I know Mike and Mimi won't let you skip school to pull off a jewel heist. Plus, I wasn't supposed to tell anybody, I could get us all hurt." " Ally told him.
"Well, I'm you boyfriend, I love you. I'm going to be there. We can tell him I'm part of your band, I'll play main guitar instead of singing. Ally you're not changing my mind on this." Austin told her.
Ally looked at him, knowing he was right, she couldn't change his mind.
"Ok, we have a meeting in the morning at the diner by the store. It's at 10 am. You can come with me and we will try to play this off ok?" Ally told him.
Austin nodded and embraced his Ally.
Man he couldn't wait til this guy was gone.
