It was a blistering Friday, Mrs. Morgan had done her daily chores and had picked up her children from school as usual. Mr. Morgan came back home from work so blissful ; his wife and two children were trying to figure out, what could be possibly going on. He asks his family to sit down to receive the delightful news of the day. At this moment a mood of mirth just dropped down on the family and all eyes were on Mr. Morgan. He screamed out loud with a joyful tone," We are going to Dubai!!!!" The family gets up and start hopping and singing. They made noise , and their neighbours were trying to discover what was making them yell like idiotic people. Mr. Morgan gave them information about the trip, and his wife just sat down and said," if this is a dream , just wake up." while tears of joy came down from her eyes. The family hadn't done something together for ages. This trip was to just bring the family together. The children couldn't shut their eyes that night, they talked of the things they would do when they reach Dubai. They called their friends to brag about their voyage. They then conclusively decided to take a nap. It was Saturday, and the family was incredibly occupied. Mr. Morgan made chief calls, while the rest of the family were packing up. The children go out to have some quality time with their friends before they depart. Mrs. Morgan prepared lunch before they would eventually leave for the airport. The family had lunch together , and they all had this big smiles as if they were going to heaven. As they were all eating, Mr. Morgan received a call from a flying agency to notify him about the time the flight was going to leave. " In an hour time, how can this be possible?" screeched Mr. Morgan in an incensed way, mean while his children were sitting there , puzzled , waiting for their Dad to get off the phone and enlighten them on the dispute. He rapidly gets off the phone , and tells them to get ready because their flight is leaving in an hour. At this instant, everyone in the family rushed to get everything prepared before they left. " Hurry up! I will hold you accountable if this flight leaves us here", yelled mum in a stressed out way. They all fastened their seatbelts and Mr. Morgan drove as fast as possible. Then everything goes bad for them, traffic! Mrs. Morgan got very upset , and tried calming herself. The traffic moved bit by bit like a kid learning how to walk. The kids fidgeted and were troubled ; they thought of how their friends would laugh at them if they came back unpacking their things. The situation conclusively brought a loud silence in the car. They get to the airport five minutes before time. " Ok! we have five minutes , so hurry!!" said Mr. Morgan. They get trolleys to carry their luggage , and rush throughout the airport till they find out that their section has been closed. Mr. and Mrs. Morgan move around to seek assistance . They find an assistance office for passengers ,and briefly explains to the flight attendant their problem. The flight attendant asks, " May I see your tickets?". "There you go." said Mr. Morgan in a fatigued way. " So please, what is your problem? Your flight leaves in two hours!" said the flight attendant . "No! No!No! what did you say?"said Mr. Morgan in an angry manner but rather happy. " So why did we get a call that our flight leaves in an hour?" said Mrs. Morgan in a low pitch. "Oh sorry mum, I don't know why ,it was probably a mistake" said the flight attendant. " Sorry to say but you guys are out of your bloody heads, we were having a pleasant lunch while you idiots called to tell us that our flight has been changed and that we should hurry up or the flight leaves us. My husband had to drive fast because of your mistake. Question, what if when we were coming , we crashed and we died? I'll make sure that all of you get fired..you guys just risked, I and my family's life!" said Mrs. Morgan in a fuming way as her face boiled up like hot, and people starring at her while her husband calmed her down. The manager of the airport came over to see what is going on and compensated them. They upgraded their cabin class to first class. This made Mrs. Morgan very content inside ,but she illustrated an angry face. Meanwhile the children were sitting on a bench watching their luggage ,and thinking of where their parents could be. Mr. and Mrs. Morgan left the manager's office and headed to their children. As they were going, Mrs. Morgan chuckled hiding her face from the manger and asked, " How was I?" Her husband replied, " You are the best actor ever, at first I thought you were serious but then I remembered your acting face and now because of you, we are on first class baby!!" As they were going they saw their kids from far apart and saw how disturbed they were. They decided to play a prank on them. They returned telling their children lies. They acted miserable ; this immediately told the children that they are going back home. They take their luggage and head to the exist , as they went slowly to the exit. Mr. Morgan , without delay, turned and exclaimed" You just got prank!!!, when we went, they told us that we were given the wrong information and they were extremely sorry . This is the best of it, they upgraded our cabin class to first." "Thank you God !!"said the two children as they jumped around. They go to a restaurant in the airport and have the lunch which they didn't get the chance to have it well . They laugh about how what happened ,and imitate each other. They relax and enjoy themselves for awhile. " All passengers flying on Emirates EK575 to Dubai ,please head to boarding gate 6 and for comfort we would like all passengers on business and first class to stay behind, we will call you after other passengers have bordered, thank you!"said the flight attendant. They sat down and waited till they were called. With big grins on everyone's face, they bordered the plane.
