Rose opened her brand new journal and grabbed her new pen. Pressing the pen to the paper she wrote… “I have my bags packed, my visa and my plane ticket to America. It’s time for a fresh start. Mum thinks I am running away but I can’t be around her or my father not with them arguing about mum’s little secret. What she doesn’t know is I have a chance to make my music career big. This is the only reason why I am going to America.”
Rose looked up to see her father standing in the doorway. “Is grandma here?” Ron nodded and took her luggage downstairs. Rose shut her journal and put it in her bag. She took another look around the room and shut the door. Grandma Granger was standing in the entry way as Rose came down the stairs. “Hey grandma!” Rose hugged the older woman and walked out to the car not saying goodbye to her parents.
She put her luggage in the trunk and got into the front seat. Opening her journal again, she picked up where she left off. “I can’t stand that dad is angry at mum but I understand that they are working on things. I’m just glad that Hugo is staying with Grandma and Grandpa Weasley for the summer. I wouldn’t leave if he was going to be home the whole summer…” She shut the journal as her grandma got in the car. “Thanks for driving me to the airport.” The older woman smiled, “Of course dear.” The older woman put the car into gear and drove off.
It was about a twenty minute drive to the airport and once they got there, Rose got out to get her luggage from the trunk. She hugged her grandmother goodbye and they parted ways. Once Rose got checked into her gate she opened her journal again. “This is it, this is the last time Rose Oleander Weasley will ever be from now on I will go by Rose Oleander Krum. It’s a fresh me and a fresh start. Everything I have says Rose Krum so that is how people address me. It makes people look at me like I have a unique name or something but at least they are looking.”
With her journal put away Rose stood up and boarded her plane, this wasn’t her first time flying but it was her first time on her own. The last time she flew was with her mum to Switzerland to go skiing, that was the last mother/daughter thing they did. As Rose walked down to the plane she was excited, touching the outside of the plane,for luck, she boarded.
It took a little over eleven hours to get to Los Angeles California but once she got there she was even more excited than she was getting on the plane in the first place. She got off the plane and went to through customs. After some wait time she was able to get her luggage and find her driver. The man took her luggage and opened the door for her. She was already loving America. She saw a note on the seat for her. Opening the letter she read:
Hope your flight was comfortable enough, enjoy the ride to your new home while you are here recording. I can’t wait to get in the studio with you. See you bright and early in the morning.
Sincerely, Barrett Colin
She smiled and tucked the note into her bag as the driver drove off. She looked out the window watching the palm trees go by. It felt like forever until the car pulled up in front of a cute house. Rose’s eyes widened, this was where she was staying… As the driver got out and opened her door, he handed her the keys. “Here you are miss, home sweet home.” Rose took the keys and thanked the man as ran up to the door, excitedly. She unlocked the door and walked in. The driver taking her luggage up and leaving it right inside the door. “Thanks!” She called out as she looked around. Immediately she took her luggage and went upstairs to find her bedroom. She decided that since she needed to get up early she would unpack later. She took off her clothes and laid in her bra and underwear, climbing under the blankets. She fell asleep rather quickly that night.
