Luna sprang out of bed and hopped on Ada’s bed, shaking her sister awake. Today was a bright day, just perfect for their plan – beach day!
“YAWN,” Ada said in a sleepy tone. “What? It’s Sunday. So lay off, okay, Luna?”
Luna smirked. She walked into the small storage room and took out the sand toys including the shovel, bucket, castle and many others. Luna showed them to Ada, who finally remembered what she promised Luna: to go where there is comfortable, soft sand and the rushing waves of the sea.
“Remember what we said yesterday?” Luna said impatiently. “ Wake up, sleepyhead! Let’s go! It’s our last day. I don’t wanna miss out and go home bored.”
Ada sat up and looked at her watch, still tired. She hopped out of bed and changed her clothes, then went downstairs to eat breakfast, which was eggs and toast with orange juice and cereal! The sisters thought it was the best, and so they ate the combo four times a week. It was also much easier to prepare somewhere they were.
Luna changed into her swimsuit and darted out the door while Ada put on her flip flops. The perfect beach as they imagined. Ada stared at the beautiful, shimmering sea, thinking of what they did: Not notice anything fun, amazing, or pretty.
The waters were shimmering, and Luna loved it. It glimmered under the sun like pure pearls! Luna took off her sandals and walked into the water. It was cool, and she loved it. The soft sand stuck in between her toes, and it felt so tickly and prickly.
“Ada!” Luna shrieked. Her eyes shined. “I’ve never felt something nice like this before! I wish we lived here. But I know we can’t afford to buy a house somewhere here. It’s too expensive. Though, it still would have been great living here.”
Ada gave a half shrug, gave thumbs up and sat down on her beach towel. She had told her sister about a time that she went to an awesome little place that had a beach in front of a house, marketplaces, gardens… everything someone would ask for. It was pretty much a dream place to live in, but, like Luna said, they couldn’t afford to live somewhere like that place.
As they were relaxing, Ada’s phone rang. A call from their mother!
Ada answered the call. “Hey, mom! We are doing great here. We’ll come home soon, so please don’t worry… alright, bye!”
The hours flew by, and it was already noon. The sisters rushed back into the beach house and packed everything up. They scurried to the bus, and stayed there to get to the airport.
Ada looked outside the window and saw a beautiful view. Luna was sleeping quietly with no snoring noises.
It’s so peaceful here, Ada squeaked in her mind. We are going home. I’ll see mom and dad! But I will miss our trip too.
Both sisters had a great time, including adventuring and relaxing. They both agreed that it was the best trip ever – and a great experience for them both!
