"Making through... Excuses!" She jostled through the crowd thick with stale sweat and vinegar sour, pushing anyone that's in her way, right after the door of the tube was wide open. She couldn't be more panicked, after realizing she had 5 minutes left before getting reprimanded for the first day of   Read More...
