Sandstone Beach part 2
    Bethany Willis  clasped her fingers around the hand of her eight year old brother Jonah, pulling him against her as the crowds of people rushed by. She navigated through the people, leading her brother and herself to the counter where her parents were registering the family for their luxury vacation at Sandstone Beach.
" Here we are, Worker Willis, four tickets for hovercraft 9XVIC, just leave your baggage here and enjoy your trip to the Beach!" The man standing behind the counter handed Bethany's father the tickets. " Thank you, Thank President!" Her father replied, using the standard answer expected from the Working class. He turned towards his family, " Let's go kids!" The family, dressed in oversized gray sweaters and plain black pants, the uniform for poor families, headed to the Hovercraft station.
The inside of the Hovercraft was wide and spacious, carpeted with plush red velvet, contained rows upon rows large black leather seats paired with small glass tables that held pitchers of water and biscuits. Windows stretched from the front of the aircraft all the way to the bathrooms located at the back. Jonah's eyes doubled in size when he saw how lovely everything was compared to their small one bedroom apartment with dirty water and crumbling walls. He ripped his hand away from Bethany's and  plopped down onto one of the seats two the left.
