It was time to board the plane already.  I was ready but all of a sudden the line stopped and I had to jump up and down to see what was going on and I looked absolutely stupid.  A man had brought a gun to the airport. 

“Ariana keep still!!!! He could fire at any moment” My dad scolded me and I stopped jumping. 

I heard screams but then I saw security guys dragging the man out of the line and into wherever they bring stupid people like that.  I was so close to getting onto the plane and I took one last look at my dad, Ray, my driver, and Ms. Halls.  I waved goodbye surprisingly with no tears in my eyes and I walked into the plane feeling relieved and happiness coming at me from all sides.  I smiled and laid my head back on my seat and closed my eyes and rested for a little.  It was quite a month that went by so quickly.  The plane ride felt like forever and in my head I was going over what I would see coming back home, or how I would feel being home again.  I fell asleep feeling stressed and relieved at the same time.




*Time on the plane*

I woke up a few hours later only to find that we stopped at some place to get fuel and we would be spending the night at that airport.  I got off of the plane and took my stuff as well.  I took out my cell phone and called Rose.

“Hello?” She answered groggily and I totally forgot we were in different time zones still.

“Hey, I’m going to be late.  I might be in later on tomorrow night or so” I told her.

“Tomorrow? Really? Yay I’m so excited!” She yelled through the phone and I cringed at the loud noise.

“Are you still over at your dad’s place?” I asked her.

“Yeah, I’m not moving back in with my mom and Mike.  I know I’m pretty far away from school but my dad promised me that I’ll be attending that school until I graduate” Rose told me.

“I know, I just wanted to know if that’s what you really want?” I asked her.

“I really want this.  You’re my best friend, I’m not going to leave you hanging like that” She replied.

“I know, if our positions were switched I wouldn’t either.  I know I left you because of my relationship with Mike and all and I came here and that’s the same as leaving you hanging and I apologize for doing that.  I just couldn’t handle the pain anymore until we actually defined the relationship.  This whole month was fast but long in a way and not one day didn’t I miss you” I told her.

“Same here, it’s like being a zombie without you by my side” She said and I laughed.

“So where are you at?” She asked me.

“I’m somewhere in Japan” I told her.

“Cool, get me a kimono” She said.

“They sell that in the airport, I’ll grab one before I get on the next plane tomorrow” I told her.

“Cool, I miss you Ree” She told me.

“I miss you too, now go back to sleep.  I’ll see you tomorrow.  I’m going to call your brother” I told her.

“Okay then, I can’t wait” She replied then she hung up. 

I dialed in Mike’s number and he answered sounding fully awake.

“Hey there gorgeous” I told him and he laughed.

“Hey there beautiful, are you coming home to me yet?” he asked me.

“Not yet, I might be coming in later on tomorrow night” I told him.

“Damn another long day without you? You’re killing me Ariana” He said and I laughed.

“Why are you up so late?” I asked him.

“I couldn’t sleep.  I was thinking about you the whole time” He told me.

“I find that hard to believe” I replied.

“Now why would you?” He asked me.

“I think of you all the time and you’re the reason I go to sleep” I told him.

“Well I stay up but I was thinking of you and my mom and I had another fight.  Ever since Rose had left, me and my mom haven’t been on good terms.  I need you here with me! It’s like hell living at my house right now” He told me.

“Well I’ll be home soon and we can hang together at my house with everyone and party like the world is ending” I told him.

“Ooh that sounds like fun, you have to call your mom and ask first” He told me and I laughed.

“She was the one who planned it” I replied and he laughed this time.

“Your mom is a real partier huh?” He asked me.

“Believe it or not both moms are” I replied.

“Are they coming over too?” He asked me.

“They’re there already, it’s one of their visits again and they came just at the right time” I replied.

“No wonder there are many cars around your house” He said and I laughed.

“Their probably why” I replied.

“I miss you so much Ree” He told me.

“I miss you too Mike” I replied.

“Have I ever told you I loved you?” He asked me.

“Once or twice” I said in a playful tone.

“Well I love you” He replied.

“I love you too” I replied.

We left the conversation like that and we hung up.  I went over to one of the stores and bought a kimono for Rose and I got me some food and drink.  I found and empty chair and I sat down and made sure all my stuff were close to me.
