A step into love Episode 1 & 2

"Gregg, wake up, wake up, grrhh, wake up, wake..." "shut up you damn thing" she snorted as she slammed the alarm off and turned back to the other side of the bed to have a better sleep but was jerked back to life by the knock on her door and the voice that followed
"Cindy are you ready?" her mum asked as she entered her room
"oh! Mum, Good morning I'm sorry I slept late yesternight, I was busy packing and preparing my things"
"alright dear, dress up quickly you must not miss your flight" she said and left her room while Cindy rushed to the bathroom to clean up and dress up for her journey
Cindy is the firstborn and first daughter of Williams Family, she is 17 years old and she have two siblings, one brother Jason who is 13 years old and a sister Sally who is 7 years old. Cindy is a bright and intelligent girl who had won various competitions and Awards for her school which makes her famous just like a celebrity, all the teachers and students including principal love her except for few jealous students, now she'd been given scholarship to study abroad in Harvard University and she have to go today.
"Cindy, Cindy... "Roseline called running upstairs towards Cindy's room "what's taking you so long?"
"I'm ready"
"alright" Roseline said and hugged Cindy "I'll miss you Cindy"
"I'll miss you too Roseline' Cindy replied patting Roseline's back
Cindy and Roseline are childhood and best friends, they attended the same elementary and high school. Unlike Cindy, Roseline is a dull girl in elementary school Cindy is the one that always protect and defend her especially from being bullied.
"Girls" Mr Williams called from the living room
"yes dad, we're coming" Cindy shouted happily, they disengaged from their long embrace and rushed down to the living room
"good morning Dad" Cindy and Roseline greeted
"morning girls, how was your night?"
"cool"
"that's good to hear. So, are you fully prepared?" he asked facing Cindy
"yes Dad"
"that's my girl, come on let's go"
"to where?" Mrs Williams chipped in standing with arm akimbo
"oh! Yeah, I almost forget but time is not on our side, maybe we should do that in the car"
"alright dear"
They all got into the car except Jason and Sally who are in school......

Episode 2
(Nigeria...... At the airport)
"I hope you still remember everything I told you yesterday" Mrs Williams broke the silence they've been maintaining as they waited for their booked flight "yes mum, I shall never forget" Cindy replied feeling uncomfortable as she think of how dangerous it will be staying alone in an unknown country where her mum wouldn't be there to pet and advise her, her dad wouldn't be there to encourage and help her, her siblings wouldn't be there to accompany and play with her, finally her best friend wouldn't be there to reason with her and cheer her up whenever she's moody, suddenly she feel like all of them should be given the scholarship but it's not possible "it wouldn't be easy to live without these people" she thought feeling distressed and unhappy about the scholarship for the first time,she thought of rejecting the scholarship but she knew her parents wouldn't tolerate that, it's rare to have this kind of scholarship.
"don't worry, everything will be alright" her father said smiling as if he can read her thoughts "oh dad,do you know what I'm thinking?" she asked startled, Mr Williams nodded and she continued "I don't know how my life will be over there without you all" she said and suddenly burst into tears, Mrs Williams who have been fighting back the tears which have already filled her eyes also joined her daughter, she hugged her and patted her hair "it's alright baby, everything's gonna be fine, Just call me whenever anything get wrong and always share your thoughts with me, okay?" Cindy nodded
Seeing this almost move Roseline to tears, although she knew how strong Cindy had be in school but leaving one's family and friends to a faraway place like this is not a thing someone wouldn't cry about.
"oh! It's time, you shouldn't miss the flight now" Mr Williams said clapping his hands together,Cindy disengage from her mom, embrace her dad and her friend and bade them goodbye "make sure you call me when you get there" Mr Williams instructed her "okay dad" she replied and run up to catch the flight.
Watching Cindy as she depart from them make Mrs Williams burst into tears again, Mr Williams eyes was filled with tears as he had been fighting back the tears since just to act as a man, Roseline covered her mouth with her palm as tears welled up in her eyes, she would surely miss her best friend, she's the only one she can confide in as a friend, Cindy have helped her so much especially in her academics ,all thanks to Cindy, she's no more a dull and lackluster girl that she was again.
"CINDY!!!" she shouted as she waved at the plane which is already in the sky.........
