1. Surprise.

 

"Wake Up Lana." My mother shouted from the hallway. I got out of my bed and stood in front of my mirror. "Today's graduation Lana. Today is the day you leave high school and become an independent woman." I said silently to myself. Hi. I'm Lana. I'm a 17 year old senior at San Diego High. It's always been my dream to study abroad for college, and hopefully I can. "Knock, Knock" My sister said as she walked into my room, holding a balloon and a envelope. "ConGRADulations." My sister said as she playfully shoved me, I laughed as I hugged her. "I'm so proud of you babe." She said. I smiled. "Here you go. I have a surprise for you." She said as she handed me the envelope. I hesitated to open it but when I did, my face lit up.

I jumped up in excitement. I couldn't believe what I just read. I hugged my sister as tears of joy began to stream down my face. "Oh my god Leila is this a dream!" I screamed out in excitement. My parents rushed into my room with smiles on their face. "Honey we're so proud of you. You are so lucky." My mother said to me. I smiled as I wiped the tears from my eyes. "Get ready for you're graduation, you're going to be late." My dad said. They all exited the room as I began to get ready.

*August*

 

I ran up to my room, and grabbed my nearest suitcase. I packed up all my clothes that I bought for the trip. I leave in 10 hours. I was extremely excited. I was going to London, my dream town, to study abroad, my dream education. I packed my stuff as I waited for my best friend to come over. After I finished packing I ran downstairs to make popcorn and set up the movie. My best friend Seth was coming over before leaving to Italy to study abroad as well. There was a knock at the my door and I opened it happily. "Lana!" Seth said. "SETH!" I hugged him tight as I escorted him inside. "Oh my god guess what!" I said. I hadn't told him that I was also studying abroad. "I got my acceptance letter for the Study Abroad program.!" Seth screamed in excitement with me as we jumped around. "Where are you staying?" Seth asked. I grabbed the paper and read the name of the family I would be staying with, "The ladies name is Anne Cox." I said. I shrugged. We're staying with families that we don't even know. Maybe this lady was a psycho. Or Maybe she was a sweetheart. Only time would tell. I spent the night watching horror movies with Seth and he left at around 12 because we both had an early flight. I went to bed and fell asleep instantly. 

 

I woke up the next morning with butterflies in my stomach as my family drove me to the airport. I checked in and they walked me to the boarding room. As I hugged them goodbye, promised to call, and wiped the tears from my mothers face, I walked into the airplane, turning around and waving a final goodbye to them. "I'll see you during the holidays!" I said. I blew them a kiss and began to walk into the plane. 

 

*After the flight* 

"Welcome to London, England. We hope you enjoyed you're flight. We hope to see you again, real soon." the flight attendant said. I got off the plane and collected my luggage. Everything was so different. I walked outside and saw a sign with my name on it. I walked over to the boy holding the sign. "Hello. I'm Lana." I pointed to the sign and the boy smiled. "Hello Lana, my name's Harry." the boy said, extending his hand, I shook his hand. It was soft. I smiled. "Nice to meet you Harry." I said. "You'll be staying with My mum, Anne, My sister, Gemma, My Stepdad & Myself." Harry said. I smiled. His voice was raspy, deep and slow, his hair was locked in lush curls and his cheeks created dimples every time he smiled. Jeez, the boys in London were models compared to the boys in San Diego. "Sounds lovely." I said. I got into the car with Harry after loading my luggage in the trunk. "So do you like it so far." Harry asked. I looked at him as he spoke, he was perfect. I nodded. "Love it." I said. Harry chuckled, his dimple showed, Perfect. "So Lana, thats a beautiful name too, I have to ask this one question on my mind..." Harry said slowly. I was nervous. "Go ahead." I said. Harry sighed and smiled. "Are you dating anyone at the moment." He said. I smiled. "No." I said as I grinned. "Good to know." Harry said. I smiled. This was going to be the best 10 months of my life.
