Chapter 3

Stephanie's POV

"Are we there yet?" Someone in the back of the van asks.

"Does it look like we are there?" I ask while looking at the road in front of me.

"Well are we almost there?"

"No, we're still have at least an hour to go."

"We still have a hour?!?! Can we make a stop then? I'm getting kind of hungry." My grip on the steering wheel increases and my knuckles turn completely white.

"Why didn't you get some snacks when we at that reststop 10 minutes ago? We're in the middle of the highway! I can't stop now!" I have no clue who's asking me these questions since I'm trying to keep myself focused on the road.

Cassy glances at me before she glances at the back of the van.

"Here, Daniel. You can have this sandwhich if you're hungry," she says while passing something back. I let out a sigh of relief when it's finally quiet again.

Ever 20 minutes or so, someone has had a complaint about one thing or another and it's driving me crazy. I wonder if this is how my parents feel when they take trips with me.

"Are you going to be ok? Do you want to stop at the next reststop and I'll drive?" Cassy asks me. I give a grateful smile, but shake my head.

"No, I'll be alright. I'm just going to ignore the back of the van for right now," I confess.

"Yeah that sounds like a good idea."

"I can't wait till we finally get there. Are we still going swimming?" I ask while checking my rearview mirror to see if I can change lanes.

"Yep and it will just be the two of us. I convinced Nathan to relax and chill by himself." I can't help but grin at what she just said. It might not sound like a lot, but it means a lot to me that she would do that. I shoot her a grateful smile and let out a sigh.

"You have no idea how much I love you right now." She laughs as I check my mirrors before I turn on my signal and change lanes.

"How much longer did you say we have? I have to go to the bathroom." I groan and have to stop myself from hitting my head on the steering wheel.

I don't think I have ever been happier to see this house. Once I pull up, everyone jumps out of the car and I let out a sigh of relief. It was getting so tense and compact in there. It's nice to finally have some room to just breath.

We all grab our luggage and start walking up to the house. Its actually more along the lines of a mansion than a house. This was the house that my dad grew up in.

Both of my parents were pretty well off before they meet each other, but it's no secret that my dad had more money. Neither one of my parents really cared about that, and I'm grateful for that. I've seen some of the parents of the people that were in my grade, and I'm always thanking my lucky stars. Some of the parents are just so rude and snobbish and always act like they are better than everyone.

My parents have money, but they don't really flaunt it around. This is one of the only things that actually show my parents wealth.

When my grandparents passed away, my father inherited this house since he is an only child. There was a time when we were thinking of moving here, but we realized that this house was way too big for the 3 of us. We only use this house during our vacation times, and we usually have guests with us because it feel really empty without a few more people in it.

"I've never been happier to see this place," Cassy sighs as she cracks her back. I wince slightly at the sound but nod my head in agreement.

"I was just thinking the same thing."
