Pick Up!

I pulled my iPod out of the computer and stuck the cord in my suitcase.

“Maddy!” My mom called from downstairs. “Are you packed?”

“Yes Mom!” I yelled back, smiling. I was ecstatic that my mom had let me go on the road trip with Amber, Thomas and Samantha. We had met online and known each other for a year and a half. I was also a little bit nervous, because they have no idea what I look like.

I brought my luggage downstairs and set it next to the door. My Mom appeared behind me. “Remember what I said.” She commanded.

“I know,” I laughed. “Be safe, be polite, and call occasionally.”

“Alright then.” She said, hugging, me. “You know you’ll always be my baby, right?”

“Yes Mom.”

Just then, the doorbell rang. “I’ll get it!” She went to open the door.

“Um, Hi Mrs. Stonewall. I’m Amber.”

I smiled from the kitchen.

“Oh Hi Amber, And you must be Samantha.” My Mom opened the door and stepped aside. I walked out of the kitchen. “Hey guys!”

Amber and Sam looked towards the sound of my voice.
