GABRIELLA stumbled into Max, who grasped Maxine’s and Michael’s hands while they skidded to stop, landing precisely at Vamp Land Resort’s front desk. Their luggage cartwheeled behind them, gaining momentum with every lopsided flipflop.
Gabriella held out her hands and caught all four suitcases before they crashed into the front desk.
She whisked her hair off her face while Max clutched Michael and Maxine’s hands.
The stunned trio stared at her.
“Okay, so there was a bit of unanticipated turbulence,” she offered.
“Turbulence?” Maxine held up her finger. “Look! I busted a nail!”
Gabriella sighed. “It will grow back tonight.”
Vampire nails grew back in in minutes at the most, but with Maxine being half-vampire, her nails took hours to repair. But Gabriella would not make a fuss over it since Maxine was already sensitive enough. The important thing was that her fingernail would heal.
Michael shifted in his shorts.
Max let loose of Maxine’s and Michael’s hands, approached Gabriella, and whispered in her ear, “I think the kid has a wedgie, and I’ll pass on describing where my underwear is.”
“Let’s check in and then we’ll take care of everyone.”
“I think that’s a good idea, and the faster the better.”
“Yeah, I got it.”
Despite all her planning for her family to have an idyllic vacation, the trip was off to a rough start.
But now they’d officially arrived at Vamp Land. Let the real fun begin.
