1. Waking UpLucky POV
Walking through the streets of LA surprisingly had a calming effect on me. Thestreets were buzzing,
it was spring break but I couldn’t bring myself to care, but
then again I never did care about such things. I smiled to myself. As I thought about it more often, moving to LA was the riskiest and probably the best decision
I’ve made yet. It’
s been a year since I left the small town of Raymond inMinnesota.
I will never forget the look on my family’s faces when I told them I
wanted to travel halfway across the country to a city as big as LA.
My big sister wanted to come with me but I couldn’t
let her, her whole life was inRaymond, besides this was something I had to do by myself.Jenna and I have never been separated our whole lives, me moving was tough onboth of us.The horns of cabs on the road snapped me back to reality,I was just around the corner to my apartment. I enjoyed walking, it gave me achance to let my mind relax for a while and not worry about anything but makingmy legs move forward.I turned the key and opened the door,
“Home at last” I muttered to myself
.My apartment was not bad for a 25-year-old single woman.
2 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, lounge, and a dining area, it wasn’t much but it
was my sanctuary.
Over the last 3 months I’ve really put more
effort into redecorating it, choosingthe apartment was an easy decision.It was open, lite, modern and cozy at the same time, just the way I like it.After a nice long hot bath I grabbed my take away and made my way to therecliner by the large window in the lounge.The view of LA was not bad from where I was sitting.I closed my eyes and let my mind wander again,
“I’m so proud of you honey” said dad, pulling me into a tight hug after the rain of
graduation caps was over.
“Aren’t we all? Well done little sis”
“Thanks Jenna” I said giving her a hug too
“Where’s mom?” I could swear she was with them a minute ago
“She ran back home, she wanted to make sure everything was perfect for your graduation party” Jenna chuckled. Knowing very well that the thought o
f a party annoyed me.
“Someone kill me now!” I said hanging my head, that request was a lost cause
“Oh don’t be so dramatic, it will be fun you’ll see” dad flashed me an encouraging
“Fine” I sighed “but you’re borrowing me your car for a whole month” I warned him
“Yes ma’am” he said trying not to laugh at my failed plan
“Come on guys! We don’t want to be late” Jenna patting her foot impatiently
