I don’t know what you were up to in that bathroom, but you can’t leave it all smoky. I’m going to get…” “Get anyone you want, lady. ” He makes his way into the gym with her on his heels, her knees pressed tightly together and screaming loudly for someone to do something about the exiting man and the smoke in the bathroom. He continues to walk into the lobby and out the doors without anyone approaching him.
Falling randomly through time is not what he had planned, and his right hand with the faded scar starts to shake. Through the side window, his eyes’ focus begins to slip on the field, making it lose its definition and look like a spotted watercolor version of his childhood yard. As his hands slide over the wheel that is faintly slick from its last protectant treatment, he glances over his finger’s faded scar again.
