Spring Break Part One

During Spring Break, my friends and I went to Cancun, Mexico. On Monday, we drove to the airport, and got off the van. We did all of the usual stuff you have to do before a flight, then took a tram to Terminal C. We got off and waited for a while. Then we were going to go into the boarding gates, and I saw that our 10:18 flight to Houston was delayed to 11:50 some. I told my dad, and he went to look. He saw it, and told everybody else. We went inside the boarding gates anyway, but the bad thing was, we had less than an hour to make it onto the Cancun flight from Houston, and the plane was nearly two hours late. Well, inside the boarding gates, I waited until I got bored, then I played some electronics for a while. It was really boring. By the time we made it onto our plane, We would get to Houston at about 2:30-3:00pm. We landed in Houston, and got off the plane. Our flight to Cancun had left slightly more than an hour ago. My parents and some of my friends parents talked to the lady to see if we could go on the next Cancun flight, which was around 7:00 pm. We might actually have gone on that flight if there weren’t 14 other people in front of us, also wanting to go to Cancun. Most of us were hungry, so the adults took us to find somewhere to eat. We found a Wendy’s, so we ate there, and then looked around at the shops in the airport. Eventually, we just got on a flight to Mexico City, and from there, the two-hour flight to Cancun. When we landed in Mexico City, we went to the baggage claim, and couldn’t find our luggage! The adults kind of argued with the person behind the counter, and he said we could either miss our flight and get the luggage, or go on the flight and have the luggage later. The adults chose to go on the flight, so we went and arrived in Cancun aroung 3 or 4:00 am. We took a shuttle bus to the hotel, and checked in. Since we didn’t have our stuff, we just slept in our clothes. By the way, the entire time, my friends Andy H., Andy Z., and I were saying that Bryce and Amanda are so lucky, because they had an 8:00 flight to Houston that was actually ON TIME and they made it on the Cancun flight. Well, that was pretty much my first day. We got our luggage the second day, so we were pretty happy about that.

Sarah’s Adventure-Part 3

“SARAH!!!! You said Delancie was going out with some boys! She’s simply just trying on some dresses in her room AND DOING WHAT PRINCESSES ARE SUPPOSE TO DO!!” my mother exploded spitting all over me. “You have no right to lock the door on me either! What were you doing!?” “Um, I-I-I, um, uh, mm n-nothing ma’am.” I stammered. My mother almost looked exactly like Delancie at the enchanted tree yesterday. “Very well then,” my mother said “You shall miss dinner tonight. What a pity, we’re having mashed potatoes, your favorite.” With that she stomped out the room. I sighed then plopped down on my bed. Cupcake meowed then snuggled up beside me. “Secret chambers, me, secret chambers, me” I mumbled staring at the dull gray slabs of paint on my wall.

Then I heard another tap on my window. This time it wasn’t my trainer. A man with a long purple cape with gold moons on it was standing outside. He had a matching hat with a mustache and a big nose. The weird man waved then flashed me a toothy grin. I open upped the window to let him in. “Hello Sarah” the man said. “My name is George the Great King of the Magicians but you can call me George.”  , “Hey George” I replied “And I’m guessing you’re my magician?” I asked. “Correct!” George said with a flourish. “Opening secret chambers is easy.” George started. “If I wanted that table come to me I would say “table come pocus”, if I wanted to repair a broken vase I would say “vase repair pocus”. Get the point?”. “So that means to open a chamber all I have to do is “open chamber pocus”?” I asked. “Fabulous!!” George said with another one of those toothy grins (gee, this guy is annoying). “Now,” George said “try one yourself!”  I thought for a moment, “Turn Delancie into a clown pocus”. Suddenly, there was a strange blue light coming from Delancie’s room, then, “Ahhhhh!” I grinned. “Nice one!!” George said patting me on the shoulder.

“We can hit on the secret chambers after you’re done with dinner.” “I can’t have dinner tonight” I mumbled. George thought for a moment “For a special dinner she must attend, make the mind of her mother’s bend” George smiled “Spells, only great magicians can do them.” And with a snap he was gone. I’m starting to get tired of people just disappearing. Suddenly there was a knock on the door, it was my mother. “I’m sorry about what I said, you may certainly come to dinner. Dinner starts in a few minutes, you can sit at the table and wait for Delancie.” I smiled, “Spells,” I thought “I have to learn how to use those!”

When Delancie came down to eat, her face was covered with a shawl and her outfit was totally ridiculous. Looks somewhat like a …….clown. 🙂 Delancie has cut a hole in the shawl so she can breathe and eat. “Why Delancie, whatever is the matter?” my mother asked, for she was sobbing as if her heart would break. Delancie slowly removed her shawl. When Mother saw Delancie’s face, she literally screamed. “What have you done?!” my mother cried. “I-I don’t know” Delancie sobbed “there was this strange blue light then BOOM, and now I’m a clown (sob, sob, sob)” “Oh Delancie, don’t cry” my mother said, embracing Delancie with her chubby arms. Mom gave me a quizzical look over Delancie’s shoulder. I shrugged, trying to keep a straight face. “Well, why don’t we eat, the mash potatoes are ready.” my mom said.

A couple of minutes later, here I am sitting in my room waiting for George.
