The Look

The Look

This is Part Two of a three part series. You can read the first part, The Inquisition, here. “The water is coming,” I called out nonchalantly, refusing to divert my gaze from my computer screen. My deliberate apathy covertly masked my nervous excitement. “How can you tell?” “Can’t you hear the bottles rattling down the … Continue reading

London is a miserable town. The kind that permeates its misery throughout every muddy field, every leafless tree, every dark street, every lonely flat, and every dark, damned, dirty alley.

Last week I reached two new and exciting milestones, with one being as a direct result of the other.

I apologise for failing to notify you all about my December break, but I always feel so narcissistic to announce to the world that I … Continue reading
