The Family Vacay

By Alyssa A

 

Paige sighs as she looks through the window. The thick white clouds blocked her view of the lovely blue sky. Paige was on a family vacation with her family to North Pole, mostly because her little sister Stacy, wanted to know if Santa’s workshop was there.

 

She groaned miserably and slouched back to her passenger seat. “Mom, why do we have to go to this trip again?” she asked in boredom.

 

Her mother rolled her eyes in annoyance, since her oldest daughter kept asking her the same question over the 100th time! “Well, we’re going to the trip because your little sister wants to see Santa’s workshop, and this is a great way to spend some family time together!”

 

“But-” Her mom glared at her, meaning that she shouldn’t tell that they were only visiting Santa’s fake workshop, since it doesn’t exist. She closed her mouth and pretended to zip it and throw the key away. He mom nodded, satisfied that her daughter would keep her mouth shut about this.

 

She looked over to her sister who was sitting in the middle area, where there were about four passenger’s seats in the area. She was bouncing up and down on her seat and her seat belt in place, keeping her from running around in the plane screaming, “I’m going to see Santa’s Workshop!!!”

 

One of the flight attendant, who had golden locks escaping from her high bun underneath her cap, came over to her seat and said, “Miss, we’re about to land, and the behalf of your safety, you should stop bouncing.” Stacy flushed, her cheeks turning bright red, and nodded. Paige smiled and shook her head. Oh, Stacy, she thought.

 

“Dear passengers, we are about to land on the North Pole airport. Please stow your table, and put on you seat belt, for safety measures,” The pilot reported from the plane’s speaker.

 

“Oh my god, look at that!!! That’s so pretty!!!” shrieked Stacy.

 

Shh!” the passengers said.

 

Paige looked through the window again, and saw the snow covered mountain and the airport appearing as the plane approached. Its beauty struck her. I can’t believe we’re finally here.

 

And this time, she felt happy.
