Winter Wonderland

Picture the perfect Christmas; white falling snow and a huge tree decorated perfectly.
Nope. This time, seventeen year old Amanda Peterson and her family are spending two weeks in beautiful Hawaii for Christmas break.
And... Amanda meets someone special...


8. Amanda's Point Of View.

I sighed as I watched Joshua and Steve leave. I got out of the pool and went into the house, it was gorgeous.

It was actually a lot like my house in Washington, but just warmer. Truth be told, I missed the cloudy over skies and rain.

I went up to my room and took a shower then changed into a pair of shorts and a California Republic shirt.

I went into the kitchen, what to do...? I picked up a pineapple and smiled at the thought of Chrissy. She loved pineapples.

I started to cut the pineapple, put some on a plate, then went back outside and ate while I read my book.


"Yes Daddy?" I called back as the big door slammed closed.

My dad walked over to where I was and smiled big. He looked out to the view and gave a low whistle.

Earlier, he and my mom got two rental cars and we put our luggage in them. I got a deep shiny purple jeep, my parents got a bright cherry red one.

My parents had gone to a supermarket to get some stuff for the two weeks we were here. I got to the house and met the owner before they left for New York.

"Pretty, isn't it?" My dad asked.

"Breathtaking." I said smiling.

"Would you ever want to move down here?"

"Um... no... I don't think so."

"Why not?"

"I like Washington. It makes me feel safe."

"Mmhmm." He turned to leave the room and I looked back out to the beautiful sight I would soon fall in love with.

Why would I want to move here? I'd have to leave all of my friends, I have family up there. I couldn't do it. And I wouldn't.
