Dear Coheed and Claudio,
Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you can go and act all crazy! We let you and your cousins do this because we trust you enough to take care of each other. I want both of you to be on your best behavior because when you get back people will start to decide on which one of you will be the next heir. Don’t stress about that though and try and have fun! If you need anything call me or your Dad. We love you all so very much.
“Ugh that was the worst road trip EVER. I never want to be crammed in a small space with you ever again Claudio!”
Claudio gave his best innocent smile and shrugged,
“I told you Holly, that wasn’t me who farted!”
Yusun glared at Claudio,
“I think we all know it was you. I haven’t wanted anything more than to jump out of that car.”
Everyone else might have been grumpy with Claudio but Seiko wasn’t.
“Oh come on guys! It wasn’t that bad! Plus we’re already here, look at this amazing place Aunt Harley and Uncle Mason rented out for us!”
Coheed chuckled to himself,
“Oh Seiko, always the voice of reason in our little group.”
They all turned around to stare up at the enormous apartment like complex that they would be staying in for the next few days. Being in a legacy definitely has it’s perks. Who else would be able to afford renting out a luxurious place like this!
Claudio wanted to make up for the uncomfortable trip he caused for the girls and decided to treat everyone to a nice dinner out. They went to a local diner called “Burgers and More”.
“Hi, I was wondering if you had a table that would fit 6 people?”
The red haired lady smacked her gum and looked at Claudio disapprovingly. After he looked around nervously and cleared his throat the lady rolled her eyes,
“Yea. Follow me.”
When they were finally seated at their table and the hostess had disappeared Yusun burst into a fit of laughter.
“Oh my god! I thought she was totally going to just tell you off!”
Yusun mimicked the ladies annoyed expression and pretended she was smacking gum,
“Uh yea we have a table for six but you’re really making my job a hassle.”
Everyone at the table laughed and Claudio just shrugged his shoulders.
While everyone was busy looking at their menus Coheed nudged Claudio,
“So brother of mine. What’s the plan to have the best spring break in history?”
“Well! I was thinking we could find some local people around our age that could show us all the hot spots. Then maybe get invited to a sweet night out at a club or something. It’s all up in the air dear brother but we’re going to have an awesome vacation.”
“If you boys are done talking now we’d all like to order. You know I get hangry if I don’t eat.”
“Hangry? Oh my gosh Holly you just put together hungry and angry to describe how you’re feeling, please bless us with more made up words!”
It took a while for the waitress to write down everyone’s order. They were a big group of people so they made sure to go slow so they didn’t overwhelm her. She seemed to be new anyways.
Everyone was chattering away except for Alessandra who sat quietly waiting for the food to be
“You know Ali you don’t have to order such cheap food. My Mom and Dad are covering it so you can get anything you want. We have the money.”
Alessandra shook her head and said in her usual quiet voice,
“I’m okay Coheed. I don’t want to take much money away from your family. You’ve done such much for me already…”
Coheed opened his mouth to say something but ended up just nodding. Alessandra had been having a rough time at home and more and more often she would be spending the night at either Holly’s house or his house. Sometimes she would show up in her pajamas in the middle of the night knocking on the door. Harley had tried talking to Amber about it but she just ended up yelling at her too. So Coheed knew it was a relief for Alessandra to be on this trip with them, even if it wasn’t permanent maybe should would actually sleep through the night.
The waitress finally brought the food out and everything looked delicious. The only problem was is that she was giving Alessandra the evil eye for no apparent reason. Alessandra being the quiet and shy girl she was just stared down at her food and said thank you before the waitress huffed and walked away.
When they all got back to the apartment they decided to get into some comfy pajamas and watch a horror movie to finish off their first day there.
Holly was freaking out the entire time at every little movement to the point where even Alessandra was getting annoyed. Yusun was trying to act like she wasn’t scared and Seiko, Coheed and Claudio were all taking it in stride.
Their first day of spring break ended quietly but people, parties, and some dates were in the agenda for the rest of their time there.
