World of Wonder Continued

Abby Schuler, Writer

The airport was huge, She helped me get checked in and settled. We got some food at one of the restaurants and stayed with me until I boarded the plane. I went to my seat and was getting prepared and set up for the 5 ½ hour flight. I was excited that I paid for first class so I could relax and not be all bunched up next to other people. The captain said to remain seated until the light went off so I quickly went to the bathroom and when I came back there was this person who was sitting in MY seat. I said “ excuse me why are you in my seat?” He replied with “ I liked it so I sat there”. I told him to move or I will make him. He still refused. I grabbed his arm , twisted it and flipped him out of the seat. He looked at me with shock and said “ Hi I’m Aiden , can I sit next to you on the flight?” What? You want to sit next to me after I just technically assaulted you?

Well he said he thought it was pretty cool that I had the guts to do that, I told him whatever I was gonna watch a movie anyway. When we reached halfway through the flight I ordered some food and asked Aiden if he was hungry and then ordered him some too. Once our food came we started talking and he told me he’s going to New York to visit his other parents because they are divorced. I asked how he took it and he said pretty well they just give him money and spoil him so he doesn’t get too upset. I told him that it must suck going back and forth all the time and not having everyone together for the holidays. He said it wasn’t too bad and then asked why I was going to New York, I told him the whole story and he acted so surprised and interested in how I am going alone. Once we reached the end of the flight I told him he was pretty cool and one of the days I’m here we should hang out, we exchanged numbers to stay in contact. My next step is to meet my bio-family.
