The Bags Had Been Packed And The Taxi Essay
“We said we were meeting at nine Leilani!” yelled Casper from the boot of the car where he was loading everyones bags. I went inside Ricks house to see Liv making cd’s on the computer for the trip. Trish and Rick were organising car food and drinks. We had all decided to go on a road trip to celebrate and say goodbye to high school and say hello to summer. I had finished my last exam the day before and was more than ready for some time to relax from the pressure of deciding the rest of my life. Rick’s parents we’re proud he finished high school, Liv’s parents have the college and medical school set out for her already, Trish was waiting on an acceptance letter and a phone call to do a beauty apprenticeship with the local spa and Casper, like me, wasn’t sure of what his life was going to look like in the next year or two. We were all ready for some time away to unwind.
After five hours of driving we took a break at a petrol station off the freeway. While the others were buying food or getting petrol I checked the map.
“Hey Casper, does Rick know where he’s going?” I asked
“That depends, where are we suppose to be going?” He replied with a smirk.
I chuckled, “Byron Bay is about a twelve hour drive from here.” I said.
“Alright, let’s do it. We’re going to need a place to stay tonight though?” He asked.
