21. Cross My Heart and Hope to Die...
Cross my heart and hope to die
I was all packed and ready to go. Louis and I jumped into the first taxi we saw and headed of to the airport. I could feel my throat closing up and my eyes starting to water. I want to see me family, I want to feel the white Australian sand between my toes, I want to feel that famous Australian heat on my skin... But I also want Louis. I should be happy, I'm getting everything I want, but I'm not in the happiest mood, because well I have to wait 3 months for the one I want most. The trip to the airport was only 5 minutes and it was 2:30 on the dot as we arrived. Louis carried my bags for me since I'm not the strongest person, I'm really weak, really dainty and quite small. I did everything I need to do I checked my bag in, went through the metal scanners, I was given my ticket, now I have to do the worst.. Say goodbye. Louis pulled me in for a giant hug as we reached my gate. "I'm gonna miss you more and more everyday we are apart, but there's a bonus to that, the more I miss you the happier i'll be when I see you," he whispered in my ear. I could hear in his voice that he was choking up and when I pulled away from the hug and looked at his face I could see tear strain marks. "this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do Louis, promise me that you'll call everyday?" I said with tears running down my cheeks. "i promise you, Alice Jayde Simpson, that I will call you everyday, Skype you everyday, text you everyday and most probably even tweet about you everyday.. Cross my heart and hop to die." I pulled him in for another kiss, this one more passionate, then I heard the sentence I never really want to hear, "california to Brisbane, Australia plane, gate 14, you may begin to board." I looked at Louis in the eyes before pulling out of his arms and heading towards a flight attendant checking tickets.
~~22 hours later~~
As I walked of the plane and through the corridor I searched for my mum through a large crowd, I finally saw her holding a sign saying 'my babygirl!' I ran towards her and embraced her in the biggest hug I could possibly give. I felt a tap on my shoulder and turned around to see Daniel, I hugged him tightly and he gave me a kiss on the cheek. "so I hear my baby sister has a boyfriend?" Daniel said cheekily as he nudged my arm. He was constantly asking questions about Louis and it got to the point where I started to get overwhelmed by all the questions. I rang Louis and talked to him as soon a I got home, we talked for about 30 mins and told him to Skype me so he could see my mum and brother.
~~ authors note!! MUST READ!!!! We (yes we have 2 authors writing this story) are going to skip this whole time she in australia.
