*Ryleigh's Point of View*
We stepped off the plane and walked down the long terminal towards the main building. This was my first plane ride ever and I felt like I was walking my way into a prison cell. I already missed my home and I was hugging my small carry-on bag like no one's business.
My dad gave me a reassuring look before we gathered our bags quickly and headed outside where a cab met us (since we know longer had a car).
"Dad where are we going?" I asked my dad as we turned onto a small rode that led deep into the woods.
"Pumpkin. Sarah is meeting me at the school to give me a ride home." My dad explained.
I looked out the window to see the path grow wider and the trees to be in a perfect line all down the long dirt rode. The branches of the trees grew tall and "connected" in the middle at the top to form a sort of canaopy overhead. It was beautiful.
Through the trees, you could faintly see another path, and then a clearing where a sort of field was in view. There were kids on the field, playing football, reading. It looked like something you would see at college but way more peaceful.

The cab parked and I stepped out, to almost get pounded by a football. I looked up to see a guy running out. I bent down to pick up the football. As I held the football he ran over and said hey.
"Hey...I'm Nicholas. Can I have the football back?" He asked like he dispised me.
I grinned at him and saw his buddy peering at us. So I stepped back and threw the football the long distance to his friend.
"Sure no problem." I said with a big grin on my face.
He gave me a look and then ran off only to return to his friend who was histerically laughing at him and almost dying on the ground.
"Oh there's Sarah." I heard my dad say.
I looked over and saw a red hybrid pull up and a young girl bound out and over to my dad, who picked her up and swung her around.
I looked at the admiring. I missed when my daddid that to me.
"Ryleigh, come meet your new sister Lauren Ashley." My dad says to me pulling me out of my childhood memories.
"Hey Lauren Ashley. I say sweetly. I'm going to give you a nickname ok?" I say to her.
She looks at me with a gleam in her eye and a wide smile. I've won my new sister over. "What is it?" She asked.
"Star." I say, like I've said it to her for the past three years.
"Why star?" She asked.
"Well...Lauren Ashley, could easily be L.A. but I went further than that. Movie stars are in L.A. so here we go... Star." I say like it took me 5 hours to think of it.
She smiles and comes and gives me a big hug. Then my new mom comes to say hi to me, but before she gives me a hug, she hands me some keys...
