Raina has always wanted a sister, so she decided to ask her parents for a sister. They told Raina that they would think about it, and within months Raina was meeting her sister. When Raina first saw Amara, she already regretted asking for a sister, and knew that they would not get along. When Raina met Amara, she was also informed that she will be getting a brother as well.
Mom dad, I want a sister
We will think about it Raina
umm... are you sure that's a girl?
Yes, we're sure.You will also be getting a brother
Raina, we have a surprise for you
Are you all sure you have everything for tomorrow?
Raina, Amara, Will, and their mom are leaving the next day to drive from California to Colorado for a family reunion. Their dad, Denis unfortunately can't drive with them because of work and wants to make sure they have everything they need. Denis will meet them in Colorado in a couple days, on a plane.
Will, your dad told you plenty of times that he has work, and will meet us up there when he can
Why are you so stressed? you're not even driving with us
Why aren't you coming anyway?
The last time Raina and her family had a family reunion, was a couple years ago, when Lindsay and Raina were like best friends, and ice skated the whole entire week. The reunion this time around is much different, and Lindsay does not remember skating, and does not really care for Raina, her cousin anymore.
Hey Lindsay! are you still into ice skating?
Um...what are you talking about?
At the reunion, Denis the father announces to his family that he got a new job at Software and Systems Management. Everyone is thrilled for him.
Well... I got a new job, working at the Software and Systems Management!
I have a surprise for everyone!
That's awesome dad!
What's the surprise?
On the way back home to California, the car breaks down and Will and their mom had to go and find a mechanic, while Raina and Amara waited in the car. As always they found another way to argue. This time Raina found out that Amara's pet snake was in the car, and was freaking out. Raina was so thankful when Will and her mom came back with a mechanic, and got their car fixed.
Not only are we broke down and locked in a car together, but there is a snake that is ready to eat me
Yes it is your fault! you're the one who wanted that dumb thing
It's not my fault!
To end the story, Their mom explains to them that it wasn't because of work why their dad, Denis didn't drive with them, it was because they were not getting along. During the reunion they were getting along again, and everything was back to normal. The only reason he had to fly on a plane back home, was because the tickets were already booked. Raina, Amara, Will, and their mom all had a nice trip, the rest of the way back home.
Your dad didn't drive with us because I wanted us to be alone for a little bit
Your dad and I haven't been getting along lately until bout yesterday
No Raina, everything is ok now
At least everything is ok now, and we can enjoy our drive home!
