1. Airports


"Mom," I whine. "I am going to be fine. I am thirteen after all. I can go on a plane by myself."                                                                                                She glances over at me. "You have your passports?"                                  "Yep," I say.                                                                                                          "Money?"                                                                                                              "All two hundred of it."                                                                                      "The clothes you need? Enough underwear and socks?"                            "I'm not three anymore, Mom. I have everything that I need. I've been checking every day for the last month. If I don't have something, I'll buy it. Okay, Mom?"                                                                                                "Fine."                                                                                                                    Mom pulls in an open spot in the Portland, Oregon airport parking garage. I open the door and step out of the stuffy van.                                        "Here," my mother says, handing me my bright orange backpack. "I'll open the back for your suitcases."                                                                    "Thanks," I say.                                                                                                    She gets out my two suitcases and gives them to me. "Do you want me to go in with you, honey?"                                                                          I sigh. "No, Mom. I'm fine. I've flown to New York and back."                    "With Beth!"                                                                                                          "Witch is like being by myself. Beth is annoying so I blocked her out for the trip. Okay, bye, Mom."                                                                              "Bye, Samantha."                                                                                                "It's just Sammy."                                                                                                "I love you."                                                                                                          "You, too, Mom."                                                                                                  I walk to the entrance of the airport. I don't see much people my age. Either way too old or way too young.                                                             Its because, I remind myself, I just got of school. It's the end  of the week. I am going to see my brother. There is nothing wrong with that.                  I get to the main desk and hand my passport to the reseptionist. She points me to my plane.                                                                                     I go through metal detector and so forth. In about a hour, I am finally in the seat of my plane.                                                                                 I have a window seat, so I stare out it. I hear someone sit next to me.                                                                                                                                 "Sammy?" a voice asks.
