Write a story about how the characters went to the airport to fetch some relatives they had not seen for a long time.

 

Karen and Jeff stood at belt 31, at the arrival hall of Changi Airport. It had been almost eight years since they last met Judy and Evelyn, their cousins from the United Kingdom. They were twelve years old when Judy and Evelyn emigrated to England. Karen and Jeff looked intently at the place where the airport information said Judy and Evelyn would arrive. They waited with much anticipation because Karen and Jeff were unsure if they could even recognise their very own cousins!

Soon, two girls, who looked around their age appeared. One was wearing a brightly coloured sweater while the other was wearing a blue long sleeved shirt. It was not that they looked Asian that gave Judy and Evelyn away, but that the girls had a characteristic sashay as they walked. Karen laughed at the thought of how little her cousins have changed since they last met.

Jeff became so excited that he almost twisted Karen's hand off in his thrill. The two girls must have spotted Jeff jumping up and down like a monkey. From where they stood, one of them waved back. Karen could not tell if it was Judy or Evelyn who waved but she was sure it was them. Karen and Jeff helped their cousins with their luggage and they were off to their temporary homes for their visit. Judy and Evelyn were going to stay with Karen and Jeff for two weeks.

It was not surprising that Judy and Evelyn had acquired the English accent after living in England for eight years or more. At first, Karen and Jeff had difficulties trying to understand their cousins but they soon became more comfortable with one another.

The four of them exchanged information on themselves and their families. Karen and Jeff could not wait to bring their cousins around Singapore since so much have changed since Judy and Evelyn emigrated.
