Kate Driebe – Mexico
“Last call for Mexico,” said the man. I bustled and shoved until I got in the plane…then I ran all around trying all the seats. I finally got a seat though all of them were the same. I was so excited…
I, Kate Driebe, was to go to Mexico. I was on a plane thinking with the air conditioning blowing against my face. I began looking out the window. It seemed like a million years since I got on the plane. I had this excitement inside me that I can’t say. It touches your soul. It makes you jiggle and wiggle. I heard my bother follow my lead as his heart thumped faster and faster. I looked at the houses, some glowing windows. I thought and thought of the places I was going. As I thought, I looked at all the glowing windows and the sparkling lakes…the dark sunset and the beautiful bright sunset clouds of purple and pink. I barely see the sun hiding in the clouds. The stars started to pop up as it grew dark. The moon glowing brighter. Life was good as I listened to the soft humming of the plane. I fell into a soft sleep and dreamed of Mexico. As the plane slowed to a stop, I woke with a start with the same excitement still going inside me.
