A groan interrupted the peaceful silence, And a loud bang soon followed. "Ow!" The female yelped, Having just fallen off the bed. She stood up and rubbed her head, "Alexandra you idiot!" She cursed herself. Letting out a sigh, Alexandra headed towards the bathroom.
And looked in the mirror, Only to start laughing at herself. Because of how bad she looked, Her soft blonde hair was like a tumbleweed. Her chocolate brown eyes had bags under them, From staying up all night yesterday.
She began to run a bath, Waiting patiently for the tub to fill up. Once it was completely filled up, She stripped herself of her pyjamas. and stepped into the bath, Alexandra let out a sigh of content. And layed down in said tub, Her hair swishing in the water. Everytime she moved her head, A smile formed on her lips.
And she sat up, Grabbing her bottle of shampoo. She then drizzled some of it, On her golden coloured hair. And began to rub it in, The soap immediately soaking into her hair. As soon as she was done, she layed back down. Washing the soap out of her hair, Alexandra then repeated the process with conditioner.
Except this time she waited for about ten minutes, To let it soak in properly. As for some reason, If she immediately washed it out. Her hair would get extremely knotty, And knots are a pain in the ass to get rid of. After getting the conditioner out of her hair, She washed her body.
And was suprisingly quick doing so, Alexandra stepped out. And pressed onto a plug, To let all the water drain.
Alexandra wrapped a towel around her skinny figure, And headed back into her bedroom. She dried off quickly, Then picked out an outfit.
She decided to make it a casual comfortable one, As today she would be getting on a plane. From england to norway, to be more specific.
She was going to oslo, Meaning the flight would be about two hours. And then once in olso, She´d stay there with her mom for a day. Then head to bodø, On a twelve hour train. They´d stay in bodø for two days, And then go back to oslo then back to england.
There was a lot of travelling involved, But alexandra knew it would be worth it. Smiling she slipped on a black long sleeve top, And adjusted the collar of said top. So that it wouldn´t itch her neck, She then put on light pink jeans.
And brushed her hair quickly. She honestly didn´t feel like tying it up, So she simply left it down. And headed downstairs, "Good morning sweetheart." Her mother carol greeted, With a soft kind smile on her face.
"Good morning mom," It always made alexandra´s day. When she saw that her mom was happy, They had an extremely good relationship with one another. "Oh crap!" She cursed, "What´s wrong sweetie?" Carol asked. "I forgot to pack!, and we leave in an hour!." She explained quickly, Panicking inside and outside.
Her mother giggled and shook her head, Making alexandra raise an eyebrow. "darling I had a feeling this would happen, so I got one of the maids ...What´s her name.." She paused, "Oh yes! I got Lola to do it." Alexandra let out a sigh of relief, And smiled gratefully at her mom.
"Thank you!, Now I don´t have to panic." She stated and, Carol giggled again. "Yeah now ya don´t, Anyway let´s eat!." Her mother cheered, Obviously pumped for their holiday. An hour dragged on slowly, And so did another hour. Of getting to the airport, Going through security.
Getting their luggage sent on the plane, Yeah it was quite the hell hole. Finally they had to wait for another twenty minutes, To board the plane. Alexandra groaned, She had always been known to be impatient. "How much longer?" She whined, Her mother sighed "Ten minutes darling."
She groaned again, And pulled out her phone. Unlocking it, She began to play minecraft. One of her favourite games, In simply the time of five minutes. She had built the outside of a plane, Which she was modelling after the one they were going on.
How did she do that in five minutes?, Well from experience. She had done this loads of times, Hell she had almost made an entire airport. But anyway, Enough blabbering on about airports. Alexandra continued to build her plane, Glancing up every now and then.
To figure out what certain parts of the plane looked like, So she could decide what blocks would work best. And then re-create that area, It was difficult but worked. More then any other method did at least, Alexandra closed down the app. Just to quickly check the time, It was eight-fifteen am.
She mentally fistbumped the air, Someone would be an announcing they could board in a minute. Or at least she hoped someone would, "All passengers flying to oslo. Please proceed to gate sixteen, Thank you."
The woman on the speakers announced, Much to alexandra´s delight. Everyone slowly began to move, Each person slowly yet surely getting on the plane. Alexandra nearly bounced up and down, Excitement filling her.
As if she were a child on christmas day, They soon reached the front of the que. Her and carol showing both their passports, "Go ahead" A man with the work tag ´Andrew´. Said with no emotions, On his face nor in his voice. Together the two boarded the plane, Called jet blue mint class.
It was an odd name, But it was definitely one of the best airlines. Alexandra sat in the bed-like seat, Near the window as she always does. Her mother sat next to her, And about ten minutes later. The pilots voice came onto the speakers, "Ladies and gentleman we are now leaving manchester airport."
