Standing Up To Life Book 2 Ch 41 Pt 2

Chapter 41 Part 2

Once I saw that everything was fine there I began skipping down the hallway to the gate. When we got there Amy, Ashley, Nikki, and I all sat down together on the floor and played with some cards that Nikki brought. They also had to ask about what happened yesterday with our meeting. Amy and I gave them the abbreviated version of what had happened.

“Tiffany, Amy, this just sucks. I’m tired of these idiots doing this crap,” Ashley said.

“Me too,” I told her.

“Maybe if you make the dance squad next week it’ll help things out?” Nikki suggested.

“I have a feeling it’s going to make it worse actually,” I told them. “Things seem to have gotten worse ever since people began to realize that I intend to try out.”

“Unfortunately I think you’re right Tiff,” Amy told me.

“Enough about this! I’m sick of talking about this. Has anyone gotten any more information about what we’re doing out of their parents?” I asked.

Everyone shook their heads. “I intend to torture my Dad until he speaks tonight though,” Amy said. “He told me that once we get to New York he’ll tell us most of what we’re doing this weekend.”

“Most?” I asked with a pained expression.

“Yes most of what we’re doing,” her Dad said from behind me.

“Uh…hi,” I told him. “You know you’re not supposed to listen to us,” I told him with a smile.

“Yes I am. How else can I drive you all nuts? Between you, Amy, and my wife I’m so outnumbered I can’t win otherwise.”

“I see… still it’s not fair,” I said.

“I’ll tell you almost everything when we get to the hotel. I do want to save a couple of things for a surprise alright?” he said.

“Alright…” I said.

In what seemed like no time after that we heard the boarding call for our flight. There were twelve of us all together, and we basically took up all of first class on our plane. I was so excited to sit there in first class, the seats were a lot more comfortable than the one’s that we’d sat in on the Florida trip. This was also only going to be my fifth plane ever and that excited me a lot too.

The excitement quickly faded into a nap though as we settled into a cruising altitude. It was a little over a three hour flight to Atlanta, and I slept for almost two hours of that. I had woken up briefly for the breakfast they had fed us, and to go to the bathroom once, but other than that I just kind of enjoyed sleeping. Amy and I had sat together, with Nikki and Ashley sitting together across the aisle, they had all basically slept the whole way too.
