The older couple watched and Irene hugged Ally when they were done, “Thabk you for keeping him safe.”
She nodded to Irene as the woman spoke. They had done "Shallow" multiple times but somehow this felt different. And after Jackson was sat beside her, Ally began to play.
Irene nodded, “I haven’t played in awhile but yes you two can.” Jackson got up and sat on the piano bench beside her.
Ally set her glass on the small coffee table that was in front of the couch and stood. Her hand moved into his and she pulled him up, nodding. [b "We'd actually like to play something for you both.. if it's okay to use your piano?"] She asked and gave the couple a small smile
Jackson nodded, “Shallow?” He asked seriously. These were his grandparents and he needed to let his guard down for them.
Ally had also declined on food but had asked for lemonade but only when it had been an offer. Her eyes wandered the room and she noticed a piano in the corner of the room and then looked to Jackson. [b "You can show them the videos..or maybe can show them live?"] She whispered to where only he would be able to hear her.
Amos and Irene had both taken to sitting in the armchairs across from the younger couple. "The videos would be nice. We've actually been following your career..but would like to see.."
Jackson declined food but accepted water, “We can show you videos, songs.” Jackson suggested getting out his neglected iPhone.
Ally sat with Jackson on Amos and Irene's couch as the two looked at pictures they were shown of Jackson's mother. And she had been beautiful. Like model beautiful with Jackson's blue eyes, nose and blonde hair. Now she definitely knew where he got his looks from. But she stayed quiet and continued to look at the pictures they were shown.
"At least he did that. And the name fits you." Irene said as she brought over a third album for the two to look through. "Would the two of you like anything to eat or to drink? Maybe you could tell us more about your life? We have missed so much."
Jackson nodded, “Yeah lets go, we have the time.” He held Ally’s hand and kissed her cheek gently. His mother was a beautiful
Blonde, she could have been a model, and her eyes were a hundred percent Jackson’s eyes and he had her nose too. “She loved you so much, and wanted to name you Aaron.” His grandmother said smiling. “I’m Jackson Aaron Maine...my dad, as much of an asshole he was, made sure that was my name.”
"I know Amos and I would love to meet your baby when he or she is born." Irene said as she had hugged Jackson and pulled back to look at him and his eyes. She almost wanted to cry as she saw his eyes and how much they reminded her of his mother's. "I thought your father would have shown you. Actually, why don't you and your wife come in? We have tons of pictures we could show you." Irene said with a hopeful to the couple.
It all seemed to be going better than even she had thought it would. But it was nice seeing she had been right and they DIDN'T hate Jackson like he thought. Her hand gave her husband's a gentle squeeze. [b "What do you say, Jax?"] She asked with smiling up at him and then giving a smile to Irene and Amos. The call was his.
The older woman hugged Jackson and it was obvious that Jackson wasn't used to the affection from anyone other than Ally but he hugged her back. "I explained to your husband that I didn't think I was welcome... but I know different now and when our baby is born we will bring your great grandchild by." The woman nodded and looked at him really for the first time, "He has Gracie's eyes." Jackson took a deep breath, "I've never even seen a picture of my mother."
Ally stayed silent and offered a small smile to the man and then to the older woman who had come out. Obviously she had expected her husband to have come in. But when Amos introduced their grandson, Irene smiled. "It's about time you came. And high time we got to meet you." Her words and voice were warm as she moved forwards
"Shes the reason I'm still here... so I'd say I owe her." He said smiling as a older woman walked out onto the porch, "Irene... this is our grandson.. Jackson... Gracie's boy." Jackson smiled, "Its nice to meet you Ma'am."
The man listened to what Jackson said. In truth, he and his wife knew what their grandson had been up to. Had at least listened to the news. But it was nice to hear it from him himself and to have a conversation with him. "It would be nice to meet our greatgrandchild. And you and your wife will always be welcome." He said and then turned to give Ally a smile as the young woman came up to Jackson's side and took his hand. "Thank you. Seems we owe this young woman something, don't we?" He asked Jackson, smile never fading
Jackson smiled, "We will come back so you can meet your great grandchild... we live in Los Angeles... both musicians." He said not sure if the old man knew what he did in his life. He nodded, "Dad wasn't welcome most places so I understand... I wish things would have been different... I always wanted to come but was afraid you did want me here... Ally helped me come." He said reaching for Ally's hand.
