"Jess sweety, wakeup today's the big day"
my dad whispered in my ear. I stretched and accidentally hit his face and he laughed "oops sorry dad" I said he just laughed and walked to the door and said "better hurry up the taxi is coming in 40 minutes so up up up" I groaned and put a pillow over my face and started singing/screaming into it.
5 minutes later I decided it was time to get up and get ready so I went over to my suitcase which was closed but luckily I left some clothes out last night so I could ware today so I put it on it was a white short sleeve crop top that went down to under my belly button, some dark gray sweatpants, and a gray cardigan. I think I looked pretty decent when I looked in the mirror so I decided to put on my makeup i went simple just the usual some winged eyeliner and some mascara.
When I was done I looked around my room and remembered all of the good memories with my friends and all the good laughs but I would also think about all the hopefully good memories I'd make in Australia with some new people.
All of a sudden a yell for me made me lose my train of thought
"Jess come get some breakfast the taxi's gonna be here soon" my mom called for me so I grabbed my phone and went down the stairs and into the kitchen where my mom was making toast while my dad buttered them, I don't know why they were making so much there's only 4 of us and like 20 pieces of toast but I guess It was the nerves kicking in.
"Jess could you go wake up your sister please" my mom asked.
"Sure anything else?" I asked she just smiled and shook her head saying no.
I went up the stairs into my sisters room which was right next to mine down the hallway so I went in quietly and closed the door behind me and tiptoed to her bed and I was about to shake her awake when I saw a princess mask on her night stand and put it on just to cheer her up a bit.
After I put it on I taped her shoulder and she just turned to the other side "you wanna be stubborn, so be it then" I whispered to myself, I then shook her by her shoulder and said "princess Victoria, princess Victoria wake up wake up, I have a big surprise for you" I said she slowly opened her eyes and saw me with the mask and covered her mouth in shock "are you a weel pwinsess" she asked and I just nodded and she smiled really big and then I said "come princess lets get some breakfast" she sat up and hugged my while I took the mask off really quickly so she wouldn't see it was me tho I guess she kinda noticed. When she released she looked at my face and I smiled and she looked confused "I thinked it was a pwinsess who woke me up not you jwess" she said and I laughed at her trying too hard to say the right words. "I'm sorry V I promise we'll play when we get to Australia" I said she just smiled like she didn't realize we were leaving today. "We go to astrala today?" She asked and I nodded while laughing "yea we do so let's get breakfast now hurry hurry I'm gonna beat cha" I said and she smiled and opened her armed for me to hold her and I just smiled and lifted her to my hip and she hugged me really tight and I hugged her back but she wouldn't release so I just rubbed her back and swayed from side to side I was almost like a mom to her since my parents weren't around for most of the day but when they were she was really loving and she's just so cute!
"Come on let's go get breakfast" I said and she just nodded a smile.
I started headed for the door and then down the stairs and into the kitchen where my parents where
Still making so much god damn toast Vic just giggled as she saw mom make silly faces at her and my dad smiled. "I love my 3 beautiful girls" he said hugging us all at the same time it was a really sweet moment until Vic started yelling for toast and we laughed "mom I want toast!" She yelled "no, never mind I want cheese!" She said and I just looked at her weird as she giggled when saying cheese, she was really a strange child!
My mom came up to me and kissed my temple then V's and then smiled and I just stood there like wtf is happening idk.
A couple minutes later I went to change Victoria she looked pretty trendy she was wearing her hair in a messy bun cuz she wanted it like me so I did it on her and a white Tshirt like me but you couldn't see her tummy and black denim shorts and her little white and black adidas originals and a black little cardigan that went down to her mid thigh she almost looked exactly like me.
After that we quickly ran down the stairs just in time as the taxi honked at us from outside.
"Jess grab V while we get everything in the car" my dad said and I just nodded. I was about to take my phone from its charging place to go outside but V called my name from the couch and I went over to her and she opened her arms for me to hold her and sighed and picked her up, good thing she's not heavy or idk if I could live like this..I sat on the couch with her on my lap and she hugged me while she was in a straddle position and I was about to stand up when I heard a little sob escape her mouth and I just hugged her tight and rubbed her back "it's gonna be alright baby" I soothed her and she stood up and looked at me and just smiled a little while still on my lap I whipped her tear stained eyes and got up still holding her and went outside and got her car seat out of the car and put it in the taxi and strapped her in, she wouldn't let go until I offered my phone "ugh kids these days" I said and laughed a little. I quickly went back into the house to get my bag and phone then ran back outside and my dad and mom were sitting in the middle seat of the suburban and me and v were in the back back seat and she was looking out the window and I stared at her sweet little innocent girl.
When we got to the airport we went through security and everything and now we were sitting on the plane me and V had a window and I gave her the window so she could be entertained plus I didn't know who was gonna sit next to her if she sat in the middle, my mom and dad sat behind us by the window they were seriously relationship goals!
After like 10 minutes we were in the air and on our way to Australia I put my headphones in and started listening to the 1975 Their music is seriously bae and just looked out the window from my seat and slowly began to fall asleep.
"Jess baby wake up were here" my mom shook me from behind I slowly opened my eyes and smiled and yawned.
"Wake up your sister please"
My mom said and I looked over at V she was sound asleep on her car seat I shook her awake and she opened her eyes really quickly like she was prepared to attack "we're hereeee!!!! Are we in astrala yet mommyyy?!!!" She yelled it was funny even the lady that sat next to me laughed a little. "Yes baby were here but don't scream there's a lot of people around you" my mom said and she giggled and covered her eyes.
"Hurry hurry hurry" V said as everyone on the plane started to stand up and exit she was seriously so excited. "Wait up munchkin there's lots of people" I said she just stood on the seat and yelled "hurry pwepole I'm so excited to got my new houseee!!!" She yelled and I bursted out laughing and so did everyone around us, soon it was our turn and since Victoria was so excited My dad had to carry her so she wouldn't run around like crazy in the airport.
After a few minutes of walking around the airport finding our luggage and stuff Vic was tired and she wanted to fall asleep but kept claiming that dad moved a lot so she wanted someone 'slower' I laughed and she then looked at me with puppy eyes and I was trying to resist but I mean who could resist those eyes "oh come here" I said while groaning and walked over to my dad and lifted her off of him and put her on my hip she Layed her head on my shoulder and played with the loose strands of my hair then soon enough fell asleep. We finally found our luggage and went outside to find a taxi.
The hot air hit my face and I felt like if it was a dream Australia was so pretty from what I had seen in pictures I just couldn't wait to see it all.
We drove into this neighborhood that looked similar to our old neighborhood in LA and the houses were pretty we went down the street more to a really pretty house with a really big driveway and a really big front door it almost looked fancy with big glass windows and big stairs from what I could see through the big windows.
"Come on girls" my dad said and I pat his back a little and said "you chose good dad" while eyeing the house and he laughed a bit and said "I knew you would like it" while smirking I couldn't wait to go inside. V woke up as soon as we got there and screamed in excitement she was desperate to get out of the car and go into the house so I released her from her car seat and she bursted through the car door and to the front door of the house and rang the doorbell and yelled "pwinsesses fwon astrala come out pwezzzz I wanna see youuu" she yelled at the door and the taxi driver laughed while we took out the luggage from the back door and mg dad payed him and soon he left and my dad braught out a key and unlocked the door and we all went in excited to see what was inside!
It was absolutely amazing when you first went in it was a big door way and fist you go into the kitchen and it's like open plan so you can see the tv area the dinning table and the lounge and the backyard all in one, we had a giant pool on the back yard and a giant kitchen with white marble countertops and white cabinets and it felt like a dream. Victoria was yelling in at the tv to turn on so I went behind her and grabbed the remote without her noticing and turned it on and dropped it, she turned around in shock she put her hand over her mouth and looked at us like a miracle had just happened.
I went up to my room it had a king size bed in the middle of the white room with a chandelier and a beautiful view of Sydney from the floor-to-ceiling Windows and also a view of the next door neighbors' house which was almost the same as ours just different in a way.
All I wanted to do at this point was take a shower I felt like I smelt like airplane and airport, so I went into my bathroom and closed the door and stripped down quickly, my friends say that I have a so called 'hourglass figure' Which I agree on because I am slim and turned on the water so it was hot and it tingled my skin. I took a long shower and washed my hair and body and shaved and did everything I had to do then got out and changed into some cumfy pjs which consisted of black adidas shorts (those that are really tight on your body) and an old band tee. I went on my bed and soon fell asleep.
