Falling for him

Kirsten is on a journey to Sydney. She is then met by a tall handsome guy name Luke. They catch each other's eyes but will they fall for each other?


5. Chapter Four: Free Day

It was Wednesday morning. I felt the warm summer breeze rush against my cheeks.

"Allie must've left the window open last night... Oh well." I yawned.

I woke up realizing it was a free day. Finally a day to myself. A day where I could possibly do anything for a decent amount of time.

Excitement and curiosity began to sink in.

"What was I going to do today?" I whispered.

"I can go to the gym? Or the aquarium? Hmm. No. I'll just get some food and watch Netflix all day. Yeah that seems about right."

As soon as I got up from bed, my arms, legs, and stomach were very sore. I shook trying to get myself up, and I trembled as I tried to stand.

"On second thought. I'll run down to a local drug store before I get some food. I need some aspirin for this aching body." I said to myself.

After 4 attempts of getting out of bed, I managed to finally do it.

Yep. Allie was gone. "She's probably having the time of her life in Sydney", I thought.

Rummaging through my suitcase, I found my outfit, and jumped in the shower.

As I walked to the bathroom, I spot a paper that is resting beside the tv. Which read:

Went to the aquarium. Don't wait up!

- Allie :)

"I knew it!" I chuckled.

After I got out of the shower, I blow dried my hair, straightened it, and put it in a side braid. I then put on my undergarments, and then my Nirvana tank. Which I compared with my ripped black skinnies, my black vans, and not to forget... My red flannel.

As I grabbed my room key, phone, and side bag, I looked into the mirror. Making sure I looked good and walked out the door.

On my way towards the elevator. Thoughts kept going through my mind.

What if I get lost? What if I get kidnapped? Or worse. What if I see a kangaroo trying to take over the city with its minions?!?!?!

As I walk in the elevator. I pressed the lobby button.

Walking out, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Ellie.

"Morning Kirsten. How are you spending your free day?" She asked.

"Just gonna explore downtown and maybe get some food." I replied, not mentioning the drug store.

"Sounds fun! If you need any help around the area. You can call me." She said.

"Great." I said giving her my phone.

"Be sure to be back by 9. Curfew. Sadly."

"Okay thanks!" I chirped, as I got my phone back.

Honestly. Ellie is too nice. She needs to live a little. I would invite her with me but, I am kind of in a rush. I am just in pain and I need to get back ASAP, so I could eat, and watch Netflix.

Our hotel was near the beach, but not to close. It was about 4 blocks away. So every morning as you walk out to the balcony, you could smell the ocean.

After a few minutes of walking. I see a drug store. "Yes!" I need aspirin pronto!

As I walk into the store, I was greeted by a nice cashier lady.

"Morning. Do you need help finding anything sweetie?" She asked.

"Yes please. What aisle can I go to for some aspirin?"

"It's gonna be in Aisle 3 on your right side."

"Thanks." I smiled.

As I purchased the bottle. I was curious about how far we are from downtown. So I asked.

Come to think of it. We are downtown. Now I just needed food and I'll be back in my comfy bed.

Walking out of the drug store, something caught my eye. Could it be? A mall. I figured that I could look around for awhile, plus, I needed to get a souvenir for my parents.

Going through the doors of the mall seemed to take forever. I finally made it inside. I see a little gift shop place right by the entrance. Without hesitation, I walk in.

There was all sorts of gifts. Magnets? Too original. Globe? Nah. Stuffed animals? Maaaay-No. Just right when I lost hope. I see a little Polaroid camera bundled with an Australia scrapbook album. This is perfect.

After hours of shopping. I still neglected my food for hunger.

I might as well get something on the way back. I mean it was only 1:35. I still had hours of marathons I could watch.

On my way back to the hotel. I spot a busy looking restaurant. As I got closer the building wrote... "Nando's"
