"Gris stares at the fire while she listens to Josephus call out instructions to Melissa on the hill. “It’s too far gone. She shouldn’t have put her hands on me, I lashed out. I did what I did.”

"Garrett scoffs, “Bullshit. You’re scared shitless of that girl, that’s on you, nothings too far gone yet.”

"Gris dares to speak above a...

Sad😿

“The most of us are just waking up and going to sleep hoping we don’t make old mistakes and in doing so we wind up making new ones. The real shame isn’t in falling down or fraking it all up, that comes from pretending we didn’t fall in the first place and it only gets strengthened by our need to direct others...

Ever since I was old enough to read a newspaper or understand what they were talking about on the news I've heard, read, and seen the same tired old argument/joke/comment/rebuttal.

"Why do they always come out against a "so called attacker" in groups?"

"Why do they go to the bathroom in groups?"

"Why are they always walking each other to their...
