I can't believe todays the day. I finally get to see my dad for the first time in 5 years!
"I'm gonna miss you soooooo much sweetie!" My mom cooed at me.
"Mom, I'm only gonna be gone for 2 months! It'll be O.K" I said trying to comfort her.
"I know, honey but being in that big house alone....."
"Mom, Remember Ethan said he'd come over anytime you felt lonely. And I'm only ever a call away if you need me."
Before I knew it we were getting off the train to London from Brighton and heading to Gatwick.
When we got there my mom was all emotional and she made me wanna cry
"Mom please don't cry. Your gonna make me cry and I've got eyeliner on!" I said making her laugh
"Flight 233 to Sydney , boarding now. Last call for flight 233 to Sydney"
I hugged my Mom saying my last good-byes and headed off for my 24 hour flight to Sydney. God, this was going to be long.
Skip the very long flight..........
I stepped out into the warmth. Boy was it hot! Then I saw the familiar Brown fluff ball... My dad
"DADDY" I screamed. I'm pretty sure all of Sydney heard me then
"Baby, I missed you so much. O my God you've got so big. How could I even call you Baby anymore?" he asked in a British/Australian accent
Then i was pulled into hug but it wasn't my dad. It still felt muscly though. They let go and I looked up. It was my step-brother Michael.
"Mikey, long time no see, bro!"
"I know, but please never ever call me 'bro' again"
"Ahaha, Okey! Karen I haven't seen you in ages!!!"
"Hi, honey. When your dad told me you we coming over here I may have screamed just a tiny bit" Karen said pulling me into a really nice mom hug
"Yeah if you mean by a tiny bit, the neighbours calling the cops then O.K!" Michael said falling to the ground in laughter of his own joke.
I had a feeling this was going to be the best summer EVER!!!!
