“The places we never find ourselves. Dinner or date, never marked as a spot.

Quiet indeed, but surely was never for us.”

“Here, you all stand, upon the very soil you rejected by words. Unavoidable, inescapable moments of time. Too bad it came faster than the flight. But yes, here I am rejoicing I don’t get to pay a dime.”

Remarkable showdown of tears. “Oh whao, are these drama for real or just another role playing to bill.”
