My two best friends and I were getting out of town, and we weren't going to let anything stand in our way. Then something amazing happened to all three of us. We fell in love. Fell in love with some of the most unsuspecting people on planet earth. Here's the story of how it happened.

1. Getting Away

Daphnee's POV

     I woke up to the sound of footsteps barreling up the staircase. My bedroom door burst open, and my two best friends were standing in the doorway. They were smiling from ear to ear. Today was the day. We were getting out of here for the entire summer.

     "Why are you still in bed sleepyhead?" Camie asked. Her full name is Camille Langston, but she hates it when people call her Camille, so we all just call her Camie. She is 20, a year older than I am. She has the same turquoise blue eyes as I do, only she has blonde locks instead of brown.

     "I was just getting up," I playfully lied back.

     "Like heck you were!" Jess yelled as she jumped on my bed. Jess is the wild one of us three. Her full name is Jessie Cummings, and she is the same age as I am. She has fiery red hair, that I think fuels her attitude, and emerald green eyes.

     I sighed as she started bouncing on my bed trying to get me up. "Alright, alright! I;m up already." I said, as I got out from underneath my blankets. "Who let you creeps in my house anyway?" I asked.

     "Creeps?! Who you calling creeps Ms. Frankenstein?" Jess answered.

     I walked into my bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror. God, I look awful! I thought. My hair was a crazy, frizzy mess, and I could still see traces of liner and mascara that I didn't wash off from the night before. "Okay, so I'm no sleeping beauty in the mornings. Especially when I have such a rude awakening like this, and my morning starts at four a.m."

     'Yeah, yeah. Get over it," Jess answered back.

     "I hope you're packed," Camie said.

     "I am," I replied. "I left one outfit out. The one I'm going to wear today."

     "Geeze, how many bags do you need?" Jess asked, as she walked over to my closet and looked at the bags lying on the floor. "You look like you're leaving the country!"

     "We are leaving the country stupid," Camie said, laughing.

     "Tell me again why we're going to London," Jess said.

     "Because it's halfway across the country, and it's gorgeous!" I replied.

     "Okay, okay," Jess said.

     "And, may I add, that the main reason is to go see One Direction!" Camie almost screamed.

     Camie is the biggest One Direction fan that I've ever met. Her room is wallpapered with their faces. Mainly Liam's. If someone just says his name, she pretty much melts. I really like One Direction, not as much as Camie, but I'm a pretty big fan. Jess isn't too psyched about them, but she can't deny that they're cute. She doesn't really want to go to their concert, but if she wants to go to London with us, she can stand one night in a stadium full of screaming girls.

     I got dressed, and threw my hair up in a loose ponytail. A little liner and mascara, and I was ready to go. Each of the girls grabbed one of my bags, and I grabbed the other two. I grabbed my phone, sunglasses, and car keys, then headed down the stairs after them.

     My mom and dad were downstairs in the kitchen when we got down there. The girls and I set my bags by the door, along with theirs, and went over to the kitchen counter.

     "Morning girls," my mom said smiling.

     "Morning mom. Dad." I replied.

     "Morning Mr. and Mrs. Jones," both girls said in unison.

     "Are you girls ready for this adventure?" My dad asked.

     "I'm just ready to have a summer where I'm not bored out of my mind," I replied.

     "Me too," Jess answered.

     "Yeah, same here. I always make plans with friends, and something never fails to come up. I'm just happy that we planned it, and it worked out.," Camie said.

     "You girls better get going though. You don't want to be rushed," my mom said after a little while of silence.

     "Yeah, you're right," I replied.

     We carried our bags out to my car. I don't know why Jess made such a big deal about how many bags I had. She had just as many. We put all the bags in the trunk, and the girls got in the car. I closed the trunk, and walked over to where my parents were standing. I gave them both a hug, and said, "Don't spend every day this summer worrying about us. I will have my phone, but I don't want you guys to be miserable worrying."

     "I know honey. But that's what parents are supposed to do. They're supposed to care, and in turn, they're supposed to worry themselves sick," my mom replied, choking back the tears. This is the first time I've ever gone out of the country without my parents. It's harder for them than it is for me. I've always been kind of a free spirit, and they've always been pretty protective, so I kind of understand.

     I chuckled a little bit, gave them both a hug, and got in the car. I could still see them waving as we turned onto the highway, and as they faded from our view.

     It was about a twenty minute drive from my house the airport. We had our passports checked, and our baggage loaded without a hitch. So far so good I thought. This summer is going to be great.

     We boarded the plane, and as we taxied down the runway, I looked over and squeezed Camie's hand. She's not the keenest on flying. "It'll be okay Cam, just relax," I told her.

     Then, we were up in the air. I lay back, popped in my headphones, and closed my eyes. Maybe I'll just catch a few z's. Then, I was sound asleep.
