I, 18 years old, surveyed the room for any indication that a male other than me had been there watching TV in her bed. She was dressed neatly, like she never usually would be at that time.
I let her listen to a song on my new iPod. I chose this song and I wanted her eardrums to burst when Isaac screamed ‘AWWW SHIT’ at 1:40 and the guitars wailed in.” -Gareth Campesinos!
