Jake Slater was standing outside my house.  In his boxers.  Shirtless.   Six-pack abs and toned biceps.  So freaking hot. Missing half of his face.  Okay, not so hot.   The one time my high school crush dropped by for a visit, and he’s a walking cadaver.   My life is a romantic wasteland.   That morning was a scheduled supply run with Finn, and I didn’t want to be late.  I made my way to the front door, and quietly descended down the steps towards the street.  The cable car is too loud and slow so I leave it parked up top, by the house.

Mediocre information gets sensationalized via click bait sites.  We were a jaded society, and only fools believed all the bullshit that trolled the internet.   Then suddenly, every channel was interrupted by emergency live-streams all over the world.  When they cancel Dancing with the Stars in America, and disrupt the airing of a rugby match in Australia, you know some serious shit was going down.  The situation escalated rapidly, irreversibly.   No day [Read More]
