Life Wonders

While pretending to be asleep, at some point I did. When I opened my eyes again, we were already parking at the beach house or beach mansion rather. It was incredible to open my eyes to the view of a bright blue ocean. The surface glittered with the bright sun on top, white sand spreading all over. The air felt salty and wet. As the waves crashed on shore the wind would bring in the air a little spray of water that made it feel kind of cool. I knew for a fact that everybody in Horizon High was very rich or rich enough; of course, Miles parents would have a huge mansion as a vocational house. He was just a spoiled rich brat and he loved to brag about it. Although I wasn't surprised if all of them had some fancy getaway places thanks to their families.

"Yes, thanks for asking." I lied trying to match her polite tone. Taking a seat on the cloudy textured bed, letting my body relax.

"Why didn't you want to go to the ocean?" Yolanda asked. She felt like a grandmother, warm and loving. Nothing like my real grandmother. An independent lady that couldn't leave her beloved New York City and her wealthy lifestyle. I liked the way Yolanda looked, it made me feel comfortable enough to spend my time with her and not being the outsider in Aubrey's adventure.

"Actually, my feet are killing me. I'm still tired from the trip." I explained, in part, it wasn't a total lie. I was tired, but I learned my lesson, next time I would just wear flat shoes, it wasn't like anyone would car...
