DAY 1: Parts 13- 23:
“ Ugh, six hours. what are we gonna do for six hours?” Claire said after she hung up the phone. “ Get to know each other?” Kate replied. “ Work on our Criss trivia” Claire thought, and smiled. “oh, I just remembered.” Kate started going through her bag.Claire looked to see that first class was starting to fill up as people took their seats. Claire was still nervous about the flight. She needed to distract her mind. She then looked over at Kate again. She held something in her lap. “wanna see something I made for Criss?” “You made something?” Claire was shocked. “I didn’t make anything, now I feel bad.” “ Don’t worry, it’s a just a little scrapbook I threw together, and never got to send to him, and now, I can give to him.” She smiled. Claire looked over at it. “ Ready?” “ Yup.” As she started to open it, Claire asked “ So have ever been to Mexico?” her eyes got wide, she was getting more excited. “ Nope, you?” “ Cancun” Claire said casually. “ But I’m sure the west part looks different.” “ Hopefully” Kate said. “ Wow, this is really cool” Claire said as she started to pay attention to the scrapbook. “ Thanks, think he’ll like it?” as she turned the pages. “ Oh of course” Claire really liked it. “ Want to add something to it?” Kate asked when she got to last page which was blank. “ Oh, sure.” Claire took the silver pen Kate handed her, she was a little hesitant as to what to write, but then she thought of something: And we’ll always have Cabo ~ love Loyal Claire & Loyal Kate <3. Kate looked over. “ Awwww, I like that!” Kate said. “ I think it ends it nicely.” Claire said confidently. She decided to take out her drink, and put it in the pocket on the seat in front of her. The flight attendants started going around and helping people with their carry ons, so they could sit down. The captain announced that they would be taxing in 10 minutes. Claire still was curious as to what these next 6 hours would bring, and hopefully it would go by fast. She brought her ipod, a book and a magazine. Kate was going through her bag at the moment, , probably looking for similar items. Ipod, chocolate, deck of CA cards and MADLIBS. " What first?" she asked. " I'd go with the chocolate if it wasnt so early." Claire told her. Kate agreed and put it away. " and since I'm not to good with cards, lets do MADLIBS." Kate flipped open a page and showed Claire. The title was " The Magician." " haha, thats funny, lets do it."
When Kate read back what they had created, not only were they giggling, but they were already on the runway. " We should read that to Criss". Claire said in the midst of her last laugh. " I know" Ckate agreed. " Ugh, this is the worst part" Claire's attention was now on the flight, and she could tell they were about to take off. Kate for some reason didnt say anything. As the plane began to pick up speed Claire clutched the arm rest. Kate then asked her:Where is Criss's favorite vacation spot? As the same time as the plane began to lift off, both of them said excitedly : "CABO!!!!!!!!!!!"
The wind was warm, as the palm trees swayed as the waves crashed on the sand. Or she hoped. They were almost at Cabo. Claire really handled the flight well, and it was smooth. She was curious as to who would pick them up, how did she know she would be going with the right person? Kate and her exchanged numbers just in case. Another question came up : would Criss be at the airport? Psht, nah she thought, as she was looking outside the window on her right. He’ll probably be in the hotel waiting for them- But that was the thing sometimes with Criss. Bam surprise! She then looked over at Kate who was still sleeping. Claire was listening to her ipod. Everyone else in first class were older adults who looked like they were all going to a great vacation spot to do business. Newspapers and magazines were in their lap. She hoped they would read some of that stuff on the beach at least. Claire put her head back and closed her eyes.
“This is your pilot speaking, it looks like we’ll be getting to Cabo on time, and we should be landing in 15 minutes.” Claire smiled and opened her eyes and looked over at Kate who was now awake. “ Wanna do one last MadLib?” “ That’s what you say right before were landing?” “What did you want to say?” Kate was confused. “ I don’t know.” “Come on, it will make the time go by faster, and will have something to laugh about after we land, so were not so nervous.”
When everyone was gathering there things, Claire was waiting for Kate. “Can you believe it, in a little while we are gonna be with Criss!” Claire thought she was going to squeal. “ I know” Kate giggled. “crazy.” “ Got everything?” “Think so, lets go” or as they say here “ Vamos.” Claire reminded her. As they walked down the corridor both of them were quiet until Kate asked “ So who do you think were suppose to look for?” Kate and Claire were thinking the same thing. “ I guess maybe Tommy or Eliza, but we don’t know what Eliza looks like.” Claire said now unsure. “Ya, maybe someone will be holding up a sign like those travel groups.” Kate said. “Hopefully.” “ Alright, start looking.” Claire said when they saw everyone waiting. “ Well were both wearing our loyal hoodies, they should see us.” Kate suggested. “let’s keep walking, maybe they cant.” Claire thought. After a few minutes Kate tapped Claire on her arm with the back of her hand. She pointed to her left. “ look, what does that say?” There was a man holding a sign. “ Criss Angel Cabo contest.” Claire looked her. “let’s go.”
“Hello ladies.” The gentleman said when Kate and Claire walked up. “ I guess the both of you won the contest?” he asked. “Yes we did.” Kate and Claire smiled. He pulled out a piece of paper and Kate and Claire felt somewhat relieved. . “Your names?” he then asked. “Oh, I’m Kate Banks” Kate introduced herself. “ And I am Claire Epidavros.” This was the first step of Claire’s first impression. He checked the paper again. “ Ah, yes, here you are.” He checked off there names. “ So, did anyone else come in yet?” Claire was curious and excited to meet everyone else. “ Oh no, you two are the first ones.” “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t introduce myself,” he shook his head. I am Derrick.” He went to go shake hands with each of them. I’ll be your driver for this trip for wherever you may go.” “ So I believe that Xesca and LeAnn are coming in next,” as he looked back at the paper and motioned for them to follow him. Claire recognized both names and nodded. When they walked outside of the airport, it was exactly as Claire saw it on the travel channel last night. It didn’t feel too hot and the sun was shining. So far Claire had nothing to complain about. They had arrived at the car they were going to be traveling in. Claire was a bit surprised that it wasn’t a hummer or a limo, but just your basic four door black car. Derrick then opened the truck, and helped the girls with their luggage. When Derrick started up the car, Claire announced: “I’m sorry, I’m just gonna call me parents to let them know I got here.” “ Oh sure” Derrick answered. As they pulled out, Claire looked out the window, and waited as the phone rang as she started to hear Derrick ask Kate when she became a loyal.
