2. Chapter 2

“Emma, baby, it’s time to get up.” I heard a male voice whisper in my ear as I turned the other way in the tiny chair in the airplane. I heard what sounded to be my dad’s voice start laughing. “Come on Emma, we are about to deplane.” I heard my dad’s voice more clearly this time.

 

I groaned and opened my eyes to see my dad and my brother staring at me. I just looked at them with wide eyes, “What?” I asked. They both started laughing.

 

I narrowed my eyes at them. “Okay then.” I grumbled and sat my chair in the upright position. “It’s just that you sleep like a rock.” My brother started laughing again. I just shrugged my shoulders and looked away. “Okay.” Was all I said.

 

Just then the pilot announced we were completely landed and deplaning was beginning. Thank goodness we were sitting near the front of the plane. We weren’t in first class but we were near the front so we got to get off sooner. I was so tired from the flight even though I slept pretty much the entire time. The flight was not as bad as I thought it would be at all, thank goodness.

 

We entered the Dublin airport customs and it was complete chaos. There were no lines and everyone was cramming trying to get through customs first. It was crazy, now I understood why the USA had such strict guidelines, this was madness.

 

My brother pushed me along the crowd and eventually my passport was stamped and right outside there was where the baggage claim was.

 

I sighed and sat down on a bench and waited for what seemed to be eternity. My brother sat down next to me and he looked just as exhausted as I was.

 

“This is madness.” I said to him, he then looked over at me and nodded, “I actually thought we were going to get mobbed trying to get through customs.” He sighed and looked to the ground about ready to pass out. See it was technically 9 am in Ireland making it 1am back home SoCal. Needless to say exhaustion was hitting us.

 

Finally the bags started coming through and one by one everyone in my family started grabbing their bags. I had two bags and finally one came around. I was getting serious anxiety when my other bag wasn’t coming. After 30 more minutes of waiting my second bag never came. My dad told me he was going to talk to someone about it and see if he can’t get this sorted out right away.

 

Great just wonderful, I didn’t even want to come on this stupid trip now all of my clothes are missing because only my shoe bag had arrived. That’s when I sat down and just started crying. I was causing a huge scene and I knew it.

 

My mom had tried to calm me down but that was obviously no use as I just kept crying. Literally every single piece of my favorite article of clothing was in that bag, and I was most likely never going to see it again. My brother came around and tried cheering me up but that wasn’t going to work. Nothing was going to cheer me up. I was exhausted, my bag was no were to be found and I wasn’t even in my own country. I think everything that could have gone wrong went completely and utterly wrong.

 

My dad came back after talking to the airport people, whoever they were and said that they were going to do their best to find the lost luggage. This only set me off into more tears because I was never going to see my clothing ever again. Then the realization hit me that I had absolutely nothing.

 

My parents tried to calm me down, key word tried. My mom just rubbed my back and led the way to the car rental place as I just sat there in complete silence. It honestly felt like the world was ending when you hear how some stupid airline lost all of your personal belongings.

 

After what seemed to be a decade of waiting in this place my dad came back with a set of keys and a bright smile on his face. We walked over to some SUV and he said that it was ours for the summer.

 

I miserably just climbed into the back seat and sat there, pouting. My brother and dad loaded up the car with our luggage as my mom was talking to me.

“When we get settled in I’ll take you shopping for a whole new wardrobe sweetie,” She said while smiling, “how does that sound?” she asked. I just nodded my head and leaned back into the seat.

 

A little bit of time passed before my dad and brother climbed into the car and we were on our way to little Mullingar Ireland.  I put in my headphones and immediately fell asleep again.

 

---------

All too soon I was awoken by the sound of people unloading the trunk of the car and all I could do was get out of the car. I did and I was immediately attacked by two large dogs. I started laughing because they were jumping on me and giving me kisses. They were beautiful dogs too.

 

“Margie, Sophie!” I heard a thick Irish accent scream, “Get off of poor little Emma.” The voice came again and the dogs immediately backed off. I was still laughing. Just then a small little woman with the powerful voice came walking over. I smiled, “It’s actually okay, and you have beautiful dogs.” I said with a smile. The most I’ve smiled since I’ve been here.

 

She smiled and ran over to me and engulfed me in a massive hug, “Oh Emma you’ve grown so much, you are absolutely stunning!” She smiled at me. I just kind of laughed that compliment off, “Oh thanks Aunt Mary.” I said and I just messed with my feet a little bit.

 

Aunt Mary is my dad’s sister, thus my aunt. She and her husband and son were the immediate family we were visiting for the summer.

 

She looked over at me, “Not kidding my darling. Now let’s go ahead and show you and AJ your rooms for the summer.” She seemed way to over delighted about us being here. I mean I guess it would be exciting for us to come for her, however I’ve only met her a grand total of two times before in my life. This whole being here just wasn’t that exciting for me.

 

I followed her into the house and all I could do was marvel at its sheer beauty. “Aunt Mary, this place is gorgeous.” My mouth was hanging wide open. “Thank you Emma, it has taken quite a bit of work, but it’s finally how I like it.” She said and all I could do was nod. The ceilings were high and they had beautiful wood work, there was a spiral staircase that led to two more floors above.


From the outside the place didn’t look like much but it was beyond gorgeous on the inside. She led me to my bedroom and told me I could settle in here and then meet down in the kitchen for a rundown of the place. I smiled and nodded and she walked off.

 

My room was gorgeous with beautiful walls and ceilings, everything was perfect. At least this place was twenty times the home that I lived in. Maybe this place wouldn’t be that dreadful after all. I didn’t really have anything to unpack so I just lay on my bed for a couple of minutes before meeting up with everyone downstairs. I heard a knock at the door and AJ came in.

 

“Aw man,” He said laughing, “You totally got the better room that isn’t fair.” He said with a fake pouty face. I just laughed a little bit, “The better kid always gets the better room.” I winked at him then started walking out of the room and led him downstairs where the whole family.

 

I saw everyone from outside and Aunt Mary’s son Sean sitting in the back corner. He snapped his head up and smiled at me and AJ. I smiled back and walked over to a couch in the back corner of the room near Sean.

 

“Alright everyone, welcome to Mullingar Ireland.” My aunt said with a glorious smile.
