Alicia Rivera pushed open the back door to OCD and ran down the marble steps towards her car. He pink, Tory Burch flats were brand new and killing her feet with every step she took. She had only one hour before her flight left for Spain. Her mother and father had planned the trip last summer and Alicia had been looking forward to it ever since. Last night, Alicia stayed up until 3 AM packing her bags and brushing up on her Spanish accent. The long hours of packing weren’t so bad, because she spent most of it FaceTiming with the PC modeling different Spain worthy outfits.
“Hi Len, are my parents still waiting at home?” Alicia asked her driver as she got into the family Audi.
“Yes, and quite impatiently might I add.” Len replied as he shut the door behind her.
“Do you think we have time for a Starbucks run? I’m in serious need of an iced coffee.”
“They have a Starbucks in the airport Ms. Rivera…I don’t think your mother and father would be to happy with that pit stop.”
Alicia sighed and dug around in her Michael Kors purse for her iPhone. She had a text from the group message with the PC.
Have so much fun in Spain! See you next week! We love you! -Massie, Kristen, Dylan, and Claire.
Alicia replied and stared out the window until Len pulled into the Rivera’s round-a-bout driveway.
“Thanks Len! See ya next week!” Alicia called as she slammed the car door.

Alicia shut the door to her bedroom and threw her purse onto her brown duvet. Her Louis Vuttion suitcases were packed and sitting on the floor next to her bed. All she needed to do now was change into a more comfortable, plane suitable outfit and she’d be on her way.
Alicia chose a red blouse, blue and white pin striped high waisted shorts, Michael Kors watch and purse, gold drop earrings, and blue Tory Burch flip flops. It was cute enough to arrive to Spain in and comfy enough for an 11 hour plane ride.
“Alicia let’s go!” Alicia’s mom called from downstairs
“Coming!!” She grabbed her phone charger and two Louis suitcases and shut her bedroom door behind her. She handed over one of her suit cases to the housekeeper and carried the other one down the black and white tile steps. Alicia’s mother was so in love with Spanish architecture, that when she built the house years ago she just had to have a water fountain, and small palm trees in the middle of their house.
“Hey mom, couldn’t you have made the fountain a little smaller, it’s a pain to to walk around.” Alicia said as she made her way down the steps and around the fountain towards the front door.
“Oh boohoo. Stop whining and lets go.” Alicia’s father said as he hurried her along.
All the bags were put into their car and they finally left for the airport.
“This is going to be so fun Alicia, the last time you were in Spain you were almost three months old, so you don’t remember anything.”
Alicia blocked her mothers rambling out as she scrolled through Twitter. She was looking at pictures that OCD students had tweeted of their last day of school pool parties and bonfires. A little part of her was sad about missing the first week of Summer, but she’d have the time of her life in Spain, and be back with the PC before she knew it.
