'Ding Dong'
The doorbell rang as I scurried around, trying to put the finishing touches on everything. I was excited but at the same time, I was freaking out. I was so felicitous that the college had chosen me out of all the other professors there, and now the gravity of the situation was weighing down on me and I was panicking.
'Welcome' I screamed as I opened the door.
To be honest, I did expect the person at the door to be Earnest Hemmingway himself, for he really was the only one that mattered to me tonight and I had done this whole stupid dinner for him. But it wasn?t him it was my co-workers.

All the food fell to the ground as Amanda tried to make extra room for the paramedics. Everyone else was sitting anywhere they could. Trying they?re best top just grasp what was happening. Some where crying, others just sitting there shaking. I looked down to the piece of paper.
It read a simple ?A man can be destroyed but not defeated?.
I looked up and let a single tear fell from my eyes. I walked slowly to my room, to my favorite spot in the house the big bay window, perfect for just looking out. I opened the window and a huge gust of air hit me. I broke down into uncontrollably into tears.
It was raining.
