You go to school with your luggage and have no idea why they asked you to pack your clothes and go to school. You looked for your friends in your lunch spot, which you and your friends call The Mushroom Tree. It’s because the lunch table and bench there is covered with a big tree shaped like a mushroom. You spotted them there also wondering why the hell you were asked to bring your luggage.
“Liane!” You yelled while walking over to them. You passed by a few other Year 10s also carrying their luggage and you wondered why everyone in your grade was asked to bring their clothes.
“Oh! Phoebe! Did you bring your luggage as well?”
“Yeah, had to.” You replied. “My parents didn’t let me leave until I packed all my clothes. And by all, I meant all. Even my uniform.”
“My parents were yelling at me for being too slow.” Abii said.
“My parents were just busy answering my questions about what’s going on but all they say is ‘find out for yourself’.” Kaitlyn said.
There was then an announcement on the speakers saying all Year 10s must head to the front gate with their stuff. An explanation would be given once they get there.
So all the Year 10s headed to the front gate only find dozens of buses parked in front.
All your eyes widened when you saw the buses.
“What are those buses for?” You asked.
“I don’t know.” Liane replied. “I’m as confused as you are.”
“Okay! Listen up, Year 10s!” You spotted the principal in front of the whole crowd of Year 10 students. “All of you please head to your form classes.”
[[A/N: Form classes are your main classes, just in case some of you might not know]]
You all headed to your form classes together as all four of you are in the same classes. You sat next to one of your friends, Daniel. The other two are not in the same class. He was sitting next to his friend, Jake. The next thing you know, your class roll was being marked and everyone was there, for the first time. Then you were asked to stand up and you were told to go inside the bus. The four of you ran to get the very back seats while Daniel and Jake sat in front of you. You waited for everyone to get on the bus until the bus started moving. On the way to your destination, which you don’t know where, you realized that the way was familiar to you and Liane and to everyone else who’ve been in the airport. You then started remembering how your parents gave you your visa before you got off the car. Throughout the whole trip to where-ever, the six of you (you, Liane, Kaitlyn, Abii, Daniel and Jake) were the noisiest in the whole bus as Liane kept laughing really loud. You were all singing even though you can’t sing and you were hitting each other. The others on the bus were just staring at you and how weird the six of you were but you never really cared because that’s just the way you are. And besides, you’re really having fun. The whole trip, the others were whining secretly and kept looking back at you. Even… him.
When the bus went inside a motorway, you’re now for sure you’re going to the airport.
“I knew it!” You exclaimed and everyone looked at you. You just looked at your friends. “We’re going to the airport.”
Everyone’s eyes widened. “Come to think of it, the way was actually really familiar and now a motorway leading to the airport?”
“Please. This motorway doesn’t only lead to the airport. You can go pass the airport and somewhere else.”
“True. But what about all our stuff? What are the luggages for? And the visa?”
Everyone then thought about it and… “We are going to the airport!”
You all asked your form teacher and he just looked away and said nothing at all.
“Sir, come on! Tell us!”
“I’ve been told not to tell any of you.”
From entering the motorway to the airport only takes 10 minutes so after 10 minutes, you went down the bus and went inside. Some of the teachers from your school were already waiting there and you were asked to go on alphabetical order and in your form classes. You’re 8th in line as your last name is Lee. You’re next to your friends as their last names starts with L and M. When you’re now in front, the teacher handed you a piece of paper. You tried reading it but you can’t understand a single thing. After all the papers were all handed out to your class, you were told that those are plane tickets and that they shouldn’t be lost.
After 30 minutes, you were asked to head to the check in area and you were lead to a plane. You sat next to the window with Liane and Abii and Kaitlyn sat behind you while Daniel and Jake sat beside you and Jordyn and Connor (your other friends) sat in front of you.
When people saw where you were all seated, they whined. “Aww~ Why are they together again? They’re going to be so noisy!”
You all just smiled.
After 5 hours of being in the plane, everyone was asleep while you’re looking at the clouds outside through the window, still wide awake and was happy that you get to be in another country with your best friends for the first time. You were also wondering where you’re going, of course.
You then fell asleep with a smile on your face.
Someone was shaking you. “Phoebe, hey, Phoebe.” You opened your eyes to see Liane waking you up. “We’ve landed, come on! I wanna know where we are!” She then grabbed your stuff and hers and put yours on her seat and waited for you stand up. You stood up and grabbed your luggage and you walked out the plane with your friends.
When you got inside the airport, everyone was looking around.
You looked for a sign that may say where you are. You looked around until you saw one sign and your eyes widened as you knew where you are.
“I know where we are.” You said while your eyes are glued to that one sign. Everyone looked at you.
You pointed at the sign and everyone looked at it. Liane’s eyes widened as well. You then looked at everyone. “Seoul, South Korea.”
