Authors Note: This Chapter is a bit short but, it is the first and we are just getting started. I hope you like it! This is the first fan fiction that I've put up for others to read, feedback would be greatly appreciated!
"Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday dear Alexa,
Happy birthday to me." I sang to myself as I brushed my hair. Today's my 18th birthday. Woohoo, finally an adult! Too bad I'm all alone, my parents are out of the country filming, like always. Anyways, not only is today my birthday but today is also the day I've been planning for years. I'm finally going to leave. Just leave and go wherever fate takes me. I've got loads of money saved up from my weekly allowances of $10,000 (my parents are both successful actors) from the past year and a half and I've also got my "emergency" credit card, mostly used for fashion "emergencies".
"This is it, I'm really going to do it" I whispered to myself. I picked up my turquoise backpack, filled with only my essentials such as my iPhone, MacBook (aka my baby), I.D., wallet, money, hygiene products, a couple of outfits and a few photos of me and my family. I walked down stairs to the front door. I got my shoes on and checked for the fifth time to see if I have everything I need, which I do. I can honestly say, I'm not going to miss this place. I walked for a bit until I got to one of the busier roads, where I waved down a taxi. I instructed him to go to the airport and that's where we went. The whole ride I felt butterflies in my stomach. I was exited but nervous at the same time. I can't believe I'm really doing this! My thought got interrupted by the taxi driver.
"That'll be $17.25" I handed him the money plus a $20 dollar tip. He gave me a warm smile
"Thank you so much, you're very kind" He said as I stepped out of the taxi with my single backpack. I looked back at him with just a smile. I made my way into the airport and went to buy my ticket. I looked at the departure board, there were so many flight! I decided a long time ago that I would play 'eenie meenie miney moe' to determine where I would go because that's how I made most of my major decisions.
"Eenie meenie miney moe, catch a tiger by the toe" I whispers quietly to myself while I mentally crossed off flights.
"If he hollers let him go, my mamma told me to pick the very best one and you are it."
There it is. The place I will be staying for the next while. I hope it's nice.
