2. New York
Rating 5/5 Word Count 1560 Review this Chapter
The plane ride to New York really wasn’t that bad, for me at least.
Besides the fact that I had to sit next to a freaky old lady that wouldn’t stop talking to herself (I put my head phones on to avoid that one), it wasn’t totally horrible.
The morning was pretty bad though. I had to get up at four in the morning to get ready, then put my bag in the car (in the dark) and then drive forty minutes to the airport (which was in Detroit). Parking was really bad too. Did I mention that I hate airports? Well, I do. Then I had to wait in line with a passport and then after that just waiting two hours until the flight actually left. Needless to say, it took a lot out of me.
But the flight wasn’t that long, around 2 or 3 hours, and I have been to New York before too, so I already knew what to expect.
When the flight actually landed, I had to get off and meet Miranda, Maddie, and Katie at the right gate. I packed as light as I possibly could; most of the computer equipment was in my duffle bag along with my clothes- so hopefully my bad luck won’t come back to me. Last time I was in New York, I went to Nantucket to meet our family friends the Iacocca’s (Lee Iacocca’s family) and we lost our luggage for 2 days. Ever since then, I have been afraid to lose my stuff when flying.
I walked around the airport to find the right gate. I sat down with my back pack at my feet and then I got out my cell phone and dialed Maddie’s number. It rang twice before she answered.
“Just look behind you.” Is all she said, and then she hung up. So I turned around, and there was Maddie. I walked over to her with a smile and hugged her.
“It’s so good to see you!” I said.
“Yeah, you too!” she agreed.
“So, this is the right gate, Ash?” I heard from behind me. I turned around and saw Katie.
“Hey, Katie!” I squealed and walked over to her, “This should be the right gate.” I say after hugging her. I looked around, for the one person we were missing.
“MDawg!” Maddie exclaimed, and ran behind me. I turned around, and there was Miranda.
“Hi, Madness. Hi, Katie!” she waved to Katie. “You know, you look a lot shorter than I thought you would be.” She came over to me.
I rolled my eyes, I was short for my age, “Yeah, it’s nice to see you to Miranda.” I laughed.
“We are now boarding flight 922 to Florence, Italy.” A woman on an intercom said.
“Come on, let’s go get in line.” I waved them over to the door to get on the plane.
We waited in line, talking, and then finally reached the doors to the air plane. We made our way to the middle of the plane.
We were all looking at our tickets, “mine says row twelve, seat B.” Maddie muttered.
“Mine says row thirteen seat A.” Katie said.
“Okay, I think I figured it out. You two,” I pointed to Miranda and Katie, “ will be sitting next to each other in row thirteen, Maddie and I will be sitting together in row twelve, in front of you guys.” I concluded. We were holding up the line to get down the plane, so we quickly took our seats. I stuffed my back pack down below the seat in front of me, while Maddie did the same. Then I looked out the window, and sighed.
“Tired?” Maddie guessed.
“Not really, more so a little anxious. How about you, coming all the way from Texas. That must have taken a while.” I said.
“Yeah, it did. You’re lucky though, you live in Michigan, that shouldn’t have taken too long.” I nodded.
“Well,” Maddie said after a little silence when the plane started to move, “this is way better then the plane ride here. Thank god Miranda is sitting behind me.” She said.
I’ve heard that many times before, I hid a smile, “let me guess, a little kid was behind you.”
“Yup, and he was kicking my chair like crazy, then-”
“Then there was probably a way to over protective mother that yelled at you for saying ‘stop’ to her son.” I concluded.
“Yeah, how did you know that? Does your penname have Alice in it for a reason?” she joked.
“No, well it is for a reason, my favorite character is Alice. But it happened to me before, just not on the way here.”
“I had a creepy Goth guy sitting next to me, and then a guy on my other side that really needed to take a shower or something.” Miranda joined the conversation as we were now air born. I laughed at that; she gave me a look that said ‘it wasn’t funny’.
“I had a stupid little kid sitting next to me with his mom, and a game boy.” Katie shuddered.
“Yikes, all that noise.” I shuddered with her.
“And I had a freaky old lady next to me, who wouldn’t stop talking to me; at least I think it was to me, it could have been to herself, but it was about her grandchildren.” I complained.
“Eww.” Maddie said, Katie and Miranda nodded their heads in agreement.
“Well, do we have a plan when we get there, in Volterra, I mean?”Miranda asked me. I craned my neck to look at her behind me.
“Well, I don’t want to waste too much time while we are there; we only have like a week.” I reminded them, they all nodded, “so I was thinking, maybe explore the city a little bit.” I started.
“You don’t mean go under, the city and explore it, do you?” Maddie gulped.
“No, not right away. Later, like tomorrow or the next day, yes. But for right now I want to find some good places to get under the city, around the city, and I want to know the city just in case something…wrong happens.” I explained. I fought a shudder thinking about all the things that could go wrong.
“Something wrong happens?” Katie repeated.
“Well, just in case. I don’t have any guarantees, you know.”
“Yes, I suppose that’s one of the things you have to agree about when going to a city full of human blood sucking vampires.” Katie agreed, whispering it. I shivered, but not because I was cold.
“You mean like that one over there?” Miranda hissed. I looked to where her head was, there was a very pretty woman that was pale and had sun glasses on.
We looked at each other, “Yeah, very possibly like the one over there.” I gulped.
“You don’t really think?” Maddie gasped.
When the lady looked over to us, an eyebrow raised, like she heard our whole conversation, all of us turned and looked straight ahead of our seats, my heart was pounding. She couldn't possibly be a vampire, could she?
Around ten hours later, we all got a little less tense, and were studiously trying to ignore that lady a couple seats from us. A couple times when she wasn’t looking I studied her features, pulling out some of the info I printed from the twilight-lexicon from my backpack. I went through the check list-
Inhumanly beautiful- that’s a yes.
Graceful and flawless- yes, when she got up to go get something, she didn’t stumble or trip.
Eyes- I couldn’t tell that one. Her eyes were covered by her sunglasses, who would have sunglasses in a plane, anyway? What if she was hiding red eyes?
Strength- yes, she lifted her carry on item with so much flawlessness it was like she was picking up a feather instead.
Smell- there was definitely some type of wonderful aroma to her, which I have never smelt before. It was almost like an icy flower, as hard as that is to imagine.
Eating- she refused her free drink on the airplane and hasn’t even touched her pretzels that all the passengers got.
Hearing- I really think that woman heard our conversation.
“Ouch!” Maddie complained. I looked over to her, losing my train of thought. She had hit her head on the overhead compartment, and she was rubbing it, glaring at the ceiling. The sheets of paper I was looking at slipped out of my hands and went into the middle of the floor. I quickly unbuckled myself and stepped around Maddie to get to the paper.
When I picked it up I took a quick glance at the women, who was now very close to me. She was looking at the paper, so I quickly turned the writing towards me and went back to my seat. I turned to Miranda’s and Katie’s direction. Miranda kicked the back of Maddie’s chair and was laughing, “Now are you happy I am sitting behind you?” she joked.
“Stop it.” She snapped.
We all laughed though as the seat belt sign turned on and we were nearing Florence. I mentally added something to my list-
Eye sight- perfect, it was a yes. Because when I looked over at the woman, she looked mad about something. I think it was us.
(A/N) I am gunna add something that Sarah did for fun, this will probably be a surprise to her, but I think it needs to go here-
DUM DUM DUUUUMMM! lol......
