Madison's POV: Tuesday
I woke up and realised that I was still on the plane. I turned my head still half asleep, to see that Tahlia was still asleep.
I grabbed her phone and turned her music down, then looked out the window for a bit. It was still rather dark so it was either still Monday and it was like 11 at night or it was just really early Tuesday.
I grabbed my phone and checked the time. It's was 3:30 am, my plane landed at 8:15 am, which meant I still had another 4 hours and 44 minutes left to go.
I was getting pretty stoked to meet up with my family again, after not seeing them for quite some time. One of my mums sisters were picking us up at the airport when we landed, so we could get to our new house. Then once we got settled in we were going back to her place to meet more of my family.
I zoned out from the all my thoughts and sat quietly as I waited for Tahlia to wake. I didn't know what to do that would spare time, so I got out my phone and started to Candy Crush until Tahlia decides to finally wake up.
I've learnt not to talk to her when she wakes up unless she spoke first, normally she's in a bad mood and she will snap at you if you aren't careful.
I put my phone back into my lap and sat there again waiting for her to speak.
"Ugh my neck is killing me, sleeping on a plane is the worse," Tahlia said as she rubbed the crook of her neck.
I furrowed my eyebrows and turned my head in her direction "You probably slept on it wrong" I said.
She nodded as she turns her neck from left to right as an attempt to crack it. I hated when people cracked their bones whether it was their knuckles, neck, back, etc.
The sun was slowly coming up by the hour, and watching the sunrise was my favourite thing to do, when I can get myself out of bed early enough to watch it that is. This is hardly ever.
I checked the time on my phone again it was 6:26 am, still had a while to go.
I pushed my head into the headrest of my chair as the air hostess come along quietly with a box in her arms asking the passengers that were awake whether they wanted to watch a movie since I there was still a couple of hours to go.
"Hello girls, how are you this morning, would you like to watch a movie while you're waiting?" The air hostess whispered loud enough for us to hear considering there were still people sleeping.
We both looked at each other, then back up at the lady "yes please" I said with a smile.
She passed us two pairs of headphones from the box she was carrying then smiled and walked off to the next row of people. The movie that was playing was The Duff, it was hilarious, but I couldn't laugh loud enough to prove it because of the sleeping passages.
Then a voice came over the speakers and the air hostess was walking down the aisles collecting the headphones while speaking through the microphone headset.
“Ladies and gentlemen, as we start our descent, please make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Make sure your seat belt is securely fastened and all carry-on luggage is stowed underneath the seat in front of you or in the overhead bins. Please turn off all electronic devices until we are safely parked at the gate. Thank you.”
“Flight attendants, prepare for landing, please. Please take your seats for landing” The pilot addressed immediately followed by an announcement by the flight attendant.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we have just been cleared to land at the Sydney International airport. Please make sure one last time your seat belt is securely fastened. The flight attendants are currently passing around the cabin to make a final compliance check and pick up any remaining cups and glasses. Thank you.”
All of the passengers reacted to the voice and fastened their seatbelts. I looked out the window, to see Australia, the tall skyscrapers and the beauty of the view I was astonished. The sky was bright and sunny. Just the Summer I've always wanted to experience, and now I can.
The plane landed with a soft thump and drove quickly along the runway, soon slowing to a complete stop.
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Sydney International Airport. Local time is 8:15 and the temperature is 35 degrees.
For your safety and comfort, please remain seated with your seatbelt fastened until the Captain turns off the Fasten Seat Belt sign. This will indicate that we have parked at the gate and that it is safe for you to move about.
Please check your seat for any personal belongings you may have brought on board with you and please use caution when opening the overhead bins, as heavy articles may have shifted around during the flight.
If you require deplaning assistance, please remain in your seat until all other passengers have deplaned. One of our crew members will then be pleased to assist you.
We remind you to please wait until you are inside the terminal to use any electronic devices (or to smoke in the designated areas.)
On behalf of Quants Airlines and the entire crew, I’d like to thank you for joining us on this trip and we are looking forward to seeing you on board again in the near future. Have a nice day!”
I stood up and turned around to the back of the plane resting my left knee on the chair as I tried to find my parents and Jordan.
When they came closer to us, after waiting a bit for the hold up of people to clear out, Tahlia and I decided to stand up and join the line. The air that I was breathing after exiting the plane was the best feeling after being trapped in a plane for 25 hours.
My parents and Jordan were right behind us as we were walking through the tunnel towards the and into the lobby to collect our baggage from the start baggage carousel, and then made our way through the exit to meet my Aunty by the entrance of airport doors.
I got out my phone had 6 messages from Lexie
(1) Hello. 👋🏽 So Maddie, when are you coming back home againi? 🏡
(2) Because I misssss you, Maddie. 😩 For fuck sakes bitch!! I'm suffering from attachment issues, okay! 😭 Tell me when your flight lands as well. ✈️
(3) I'm gonna break into your house Maddie and steal your shit you left here, only because you left me and didn't take me with you so that makes it right, I gotta at least have something of your so I don't forget about you for leaving, even though you'd deserve it. 😏
(4) And Maddie if you only thought I was gonna steal like 1 or 3 things I actually meant like everything of yours. 😐
(5) Why would I forget about you Maddie that's really just too impossible for someone to even do even if they tried. 😁
(6) And you know what? Speaking of memory I'm gonna be waiting here for you to tell me that you met 5 Seconds of Summer and tell them that I existed and told them to follow me 👨👨👦👦 And I'm gonna be mostly waiting for their digits at the end of this message. 📱Love you, and my family and myself miss you dearly. 👨👩👧 ooh and the dog 🐶. ❤️
And I replied with one message replying to all of the above:
"Why did have you wrote my name in pretty much all those texts idiot? 😋
I am on my way home now Lex. 🏠
You should've come with, I'm sure my parents wouldn't mind, I don't know about yours though, eh ooh well, they might be happy to get rid of you if they allowed you. 😂 I had landed just then now I'm about you meet my Aunty, and check out the new house and I'm about to get bombarded by hugs and kisses and the usual "oh my god you've grown up so much since I last saw you" and "I remember when you were just this about this little, now you're all grown up just young and beautiful" ✈️
Do you really want to do that Lexie, are you 100% sure? 😉🚨📡🔔📢
Now why would you want to do such a thing Lexie? Sheesh forgetting about your bestfriend! How dare you?! 😥😉
I'm not doing it anymore, cause I hate you and your a whore and your not good enough to get their number and be followed, so I'm gonna just get it for myself if that's okay wi h you of HA! Kidding!! You're gonna have to send me a picture and their names so I can recognise them, but like I said before. I doubt I'd see them around in such a big city. 😆 And we all miss you and your family too, ooh and the dog! 😞 ❤️😃
P.s. I've picked up the whole emoji habit off you thanks!👌🏽"
And I also had 3 messages from Carman
(1) It's gonna be depressing, lonely and quiet without you Alexis. 😱
(2) Lexie was full on balling when your plane left! 😟
(3) Has the jet lag kicked in yet!?
And I replied with:
"Hey Carman! I know, I understand it's not going to be the same without me, which is why you should've came as well. 😞😉
I bet she was, I hope not as much as she did when I told her that I was actually moving to Australia? Just look after her please. 😕
Yes!!! It has I had literally slept for 20 hours, my sleeping pattern is gonna be so messed up and now I have now landed in Australia safety and I'm about to get bombarded by hugs and kisses and the usual "oh my god you've grown up so much since I last saw you" and "I remember when you were just this about this little, now you're all grown up just young and beautiful"!! I'm way to tired for face-to-face conversation😩😴
Mum let go of her suitcase and run up and hugged a young lady with long platinum blonde hair like mine, and mums, wearing a black high waisted pencil skirt that probably sat just 3cm above her knees and a pale pink button up shirt that was loosely tucked into the skirt and had "health care" embroidered on the left pocket of her shirt with black heels with 5cm heel.
She must've worked in a hospital, but in which department. She was beautiful and had the face of a model and looked just like my mum who also was twin just like Tahlia and I so it must have being my Aunty.
My dad, Tahlia Jordan and I slowly walked up to them and waiting for her to realise that it wasn't just my mum who came to Australia.
Tahlia cleared get throat as an attempt to catch their attention which made me scoff.
My mum and her sister quickly turned around and my Aunty screamed from happiness.
"Oh My God! Hello, it is so lovely to see you!" She said in a perky tone as she hugged us all!
Thank god she hasn't mentioned how much we've grown up since we last saw her which was when I was 3.
"You two are so beautiful look at you, and look at you Jordan, I'm sure all the girls would be chasing you" she said to Tahlia, Jordan and I. It made us chuckle a bit
After all the screaming and hugging, we finally decided that we should probably go to the car.
We walked for like 3 minutes till we got to the car, she drove a silver Captiva 7. We put all our luggage in the beck of her SUV and drove to our new house.
The trip from the airport to my house was a long trip but it was worth it. Being able to sit in the car and look out the window admiring the scenery was such a privilege.
We eventually got to close to our destination, says the GPS in at the front, the neighbourhoods are so amazing, there were so many tall apartments and so many massive houses, new ones, old ones, one story, and two stories and the beach was literally just across the road.
The car had pulled into a drive way, I couldn't see what the house looked like due to a tall fence, green hedges, plants and various types of trees blocking my view.
The most I could see was a balcony on the right side of the house, flowers, a little section of grass, the roof and the tall gate in front of us.
Dad got out of the car placed his thumb on this black box and the gate slowly opened. My Aunty drove through and I finally got a better view of the house.
I was literally blown away, at what I was witnessing, the house was a grey stoned house, which looked like a house you would see if you looked up 'amazing houses' on the Internet except a little smaller but not by much. Most of the houses in this neighbourhood perfectly defined the definition of the amazing houses that you'd find on the Internet.
It had a straight pavement driveway leading to the garage and another little driveway turning off to the left leading to a what looked like a gravelled car park for visitors I assumed. The grass was green, and the flower bushes were nice and neat.
We all got out of the car and grabbed our luggage from the back of the car, and walked towards the front door which was double doored, black, and blurred one way glass that was the type of glass that only you front the inside could see through but not if you were outside, and timbered newly painted flooring with a veranda circling the whole house, so far it was amazing.
My dad put the key in the key hole and opened the door, the sound of an alarm went off as the door opened he quickly rushed behind the door and put in a pin on and made a beep when the alarm was switched off.
I walked in though the doors with my suitcase and walked a little to the left to allow access for other people to enter. I stood there speechless. I honestly thought I was dreaming.
Hey everyone, here is my completely new update, there will be a new chapter up soon! I cannot wait till the boys get introduced in the story, then the real shit will truly begin. I really hope you liked it. 😀 just warning there were a lot of emojis and I don't know whether they're show up on a laptop.
Don't forget to:
It'll mean a lot
THANK YOU SO MUCH. ^.^
