Azra turned to Archimedes and spoke before Shana walked off, “No offense, old friend.

Once in her cabin, Shana flung herself onto her bed and broke down into ragged sobs, her emotions of having to leave her friends and in particular her boyfriend taking control for the moment over her other thoughts and emotions.

It is speculated that they lost control of the … Continue reading Stream of Consciousness

“Oh,” Shana said, shaking her head, trying to make sense of all this. “You all are messing with me. Right?” She looked at her grandfather for confirmation. Archimedes shook his head. “No, we are not, and when I’m done explaining, I will prove it to you. Now, where did I leave off? Oh, yes. I … Continue reading Stream of Consciousness
