1. Paradise, and I've only been here 10 minutes.

   A summer in paradise. Well..London England, but that's paradise to me. Being a young southern girl from Nashville Tennessee, I had big dreams. My family didn't have much money, so auditioning for the X-Factor a month ago truly is the best thing that ever happened to me. I never expected I would get this far, to the judges houses. Simon Cowell's house to be exact. In London, England. Did I mention that already? They made quite a few changes this season in the X-Factor, instead of only spending a week at you're specific judge's house, you're spending the entire summer, and getting you're own personal mentor. 

   I stepped out of the sleek, shiny, black limo. I stared in awe, gaping at the mansion standing before me. Two tall palm trees towered over the large white house. A muscular man lifted my two suitcases out of the trunk of the limo and slammed it shut. I slung my large purple backpack over my left shoulder, and flipped my long, untamed, frizzy red hair out of my face. I thanked the man carrying my suitcases and he smiled kindly at me, leading me into the giant house. 

   "Wow," I whispered softly gazing at my surroundings. This is where I would be spending my entire summer. The man set down my suitcases on a plush looking cream sofa, then left me all alone in the middle of Simon Cowell's house. "Oh geez." I muttered. I spun around taking in my surroundings, touching everything around me, feeling it, it was so beautiful. I thought back to my small Tennessee house that I shared with my 3 brothers, 3 sisters, and parents. They sure were missing out. 

  "Gorgeous, right?" I heard a girl's voice behind me. I spun around quickly to face a gorgeous, tall girl with dirty blond hair and stunning caramel colored eyes. She looked like a model. I nodded slowly. "I'm Rachel." She smiled at me showing her pearly white teeth. She walked up to me and stuck out her hand. I reached for it and shook it, smiling back. 

  "I'm Abigail. You can call me Abi though." I let go of her hand and slowly let my own drop to my side. I played with the hem of my navy blue blouse. 

   "Nice to meet you Abi! Everyone else is here, we were just waiting on you! Simon told me to come and find you! Lets go, I'll take you to you're room then we can go see what the big news is." She grinned and helped me with my bags. 

  "Thanks." I smiled softly at her. She led me into a ginormous room. "Wait..this is all mine?" I asked, in shock. 

  "It sure is! You have you're own bathroom too!" My jaw dropped. This really was paradise, and I've only been here 10 minutes. Wow.
