The long road

Seeing Los Angeles in the broad daylight is more amazing than at night. It’s even more amazing having my hair blowing around in the wind.

Everything is so different. Riding with Rachel I’m seeing so many different things. From malls to strip clubs. Seeing expensive cars and privileged people everywhere, it’s so much.

“Hey, Rachel are we there yet?”

“Yeah, we are its five minutes away?”

Rachel slows down the car pulling into, Bob Bryants dealership. She parks the car, and we both get out, not a minute later She immediately locks the car.

The dealership wasn’t bad. Although the sign was crooked. However, the cars on the lot we’re amazing.

Rachel opens the door and we both go in. A middle-aged man approaches us from his office.

“Greetings ladies, My name is Bob, I’m the owner of this dealership, what can I do for you ladies? He spoke softly, looking at the both of us.

“Well, Amanda here, needs a car,” Rachel says putting me on the spot. He looks at me and continuing the conversation.

“Well, hello Amanda, So, what type of car do you prefer?”

“Well, I don’t exactly know, But I do know that I need something small but fast and good on gas.”

“Okay, I think I got the perfect car for you,” he says leads us to the back.

Approaching the back of the dealership I see a beautiful Yellow Volkswagen Punchbuggy. I can’t help but stare its so beautiful. It is even glistening in the light.

“Ma’am, I would like to introduce you to the BMW m3 she’s a 2017 model and a limited edition can’t knock it till you try it”. I take my eyes off the beauty and he’s touching the car delicately like it’s his long lost wife.”Thank you, sir, but-”

“It’s settled, let’s take it for a test drive get in.”

“No thank you, however, I do like that yellow beauty over there.” I point behind him and he turns and looks.

" What car are you talking about, ma’am All I see is trashy BMW’s and a Punch Buggy and the Punch Buggy is the only yellow car over there and I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want a car like that.”

“Yeah, as a matter of fact, I do, it’s cute, and it fits my personality, and I want it so how much will it be?”

“Oh, okay, you sure you don’t want any other car, ma’am?′ he looks at me confused

“No, sir, I don’t. Now, how much will it be?”

“Okay, it will be six hundred dollars it was totaled so I fixed it up. I wasn’t expecting anyone to buy it.”

“Okay, uh, here you go”

I take out the money from my pocket counting six hundred dollars giving it to him, and he accepts it putting it in his pocket.

“Okay, ma’am,I just need you to sign some papers and she’ll be yours.”

“Okay,” we all walk into the dealership heading to his office.

“Alright, you can have a seat and drawing up the paper should only take a second. Yep, here we go,” he holds yellow papers in his hands and sets them on the table. He starts flipping papers and signing his name on all of them. He closes the packet sliding the papers and pen to me.

" There you go, ma’am, all you have to do is sign the dotted line and I already put the date so you can just sign and everything will be good. Another thing the car insurance is also included in the contract its only 100 dollars a month starting next month and you can pick a day when to pay it.”

“Okay, um, I guess I can say the 20th of every month.” looking up at him sliding the papers over.

“Okay, what is your last name Amanda?”

" It’s Collins.”

“Okay, Amanda, everything is in your name and your car insurance is due every month. The car inspections, oil changes, tire rotations are all free. Just come here and I’ll take a look at it.” He says smoothly he looks at each paper reading it, checking it and looks up at me.

“Ms. Collins, everything is ready, you are freeto go.” He slides the car keys across the counter smiling. Returning the smile I practically run to my beautiful yellow banana. Bringing Rachel with me.

" Rachel, do you like her?”

“Indeed, she’s like a yellow Gumball on wheels. Now that you have a car you can drive anywhere you want.”

“Thank you so much, this means a lot Rachel, I don’t think I would be here without you. ”

“Aww its okay sis, I got you, now all you have to do is go shopping, come home, and chill with the girls. They will all be there when you come home. Okay.”

“Yep, I might be home later, though I’m going to look to see if there are any jobs available you know.”

“Yeah, girl there should be a lot, just pay attention to your surroundings it can be tough out here, I’m going home and I’ll see you when you get home okay.”

“Yep” I hug her tightly for a minute, letting her go and I slide into my car.

“I’ll see you later, Amanda, now get going,”

“Okay, okay, I’m going” I turn on my phone looking for a supermarket nearby, and it seems that one is a mile from here. So, I set the route and start the car. Driving to the front of the dealership I’m off to the store leaving Rachel behind.
