Doctor Reality
Published on 09-12-2017 07:38 PM
"It's crazy how reality can push someone so far into themselves," I remembered thinking as I walked up the stairs towards the room at the far corner of the mansion, my brown suitcase bouncing occasionally on my leg.

It was the last operation of the day after all, so he could afford some reprieve. Quietly, he   Read More...

“Did you know that human beings are like albatross?” he said squinting and giving his disarming smile at once. I peeled my eyes off the not-interesting-anymore magazine because of this hot guy sitting beside me who can squint and still look ravishingly amazing at the same time. I feign  Read More...
